    All signs point to senior gunslinger Kelly Bryant to return Saturday and that's the difference in this one. Two of the best defenses in the nation but Missouri is a different team with Bryant on the field. Give me the 7 points and put $25 on the money line for luck.

    $250 Missouri +7

      Ohio was tripped up at home last Wednesday against Miami-Ohio 24-21. The Bobcats still need two more wins in the final three games to attain bowl eligibility. Ohio ranks 36th in the nation with 198.8 rushing yards per game, but is awful against the run. It has allowed 196.8 rushing yards per game, ranking 99th in the country.

      Western Michigan has won two in a row, averaging 42.0 PPG. The Broncos are already become bowl eligible with six victories. They have scored 24 or more points in each of the past eight games.

      Western Michigan is the more functional team, as Ohio has struggled over the last 4 weeks. The Bobcats have managed a 1-3 SU record and 0-4 ATS mark in their four games.

      $250 Western Michigan -1

        The Jazz have had a roller coaster start to their season but have picked up a little steam over the last week, winning their last two games over Milwaukee and Philly. The Warriors on the other hand continue a free fall behind their injury-plagued roster dropping four out of their last five games. The Dubs will be under manned and out gunned in this matchup. Don't be afraid to lay the 10 points here as I like the Jazz to roll by double digits.

          Maybe the public is aware the Warriors are 75% ATS last 4 games and have lost their last 2 games by only 6 points. $250 UTA -10

        The Grizzlies have one of the worst defenses in the NBA and their offense isn't much better as Memphis has only scored more than 100 points (101) in two of the last three games on the road - I expect the Spurs to bounce back in this game and play a way better defense than they did in a loss to Boston. Grayson Allen is out for Memphis tonight but the good news is they get their rookie guard Ja Morant back for this one. All said, the Grizzlies are the weakest team in the West alongside Golden State and this is a game I think S.A. wins by double digits.

          Dolphins and OVER 43.5 - The Colts have not seen a game decided by double-digits this year and playing with their 3rd string QB. The OVER 43.5 (-110) is the bet on our total here.

          $500 Miami +10.5 & $250 Over 43.5

            Seattle +7 (-120) - Not a good time for the 49er's to be playing the hot Seahawks - San Francisco has been bit with the injury bug and could have up to 6 starters out for this game. Lock it up and let's buy the hook just in case - Seattle +7 here at -120 odds.

              This is an interesting one, and actually a revenge spot for the Boilermakers after losing in Austin last December. Texas added Michigan defensive guru Luke Yaklich over the offseason, and the Longhorns' D could cause trouble for a Purdue offense that enters the season with some questions. Still, the home team deserves the edge here, at least as long as Nojel Eastern's foot injury isn't a problem. Texas's new four-star centers are going to get an immediate test from 7'3" Matt Haarms and Trevion Williams.

                These could be two programs trending in opposite directions. Oregon State won 18 games in 2018-19 an this seasons team could make a push for the tournament with conference Player of the Year candidate Tres Tinkle. Iowa State could face an uphill climb in the Big 12. The Cyclones lost leading scorers Marial Shayok and Lindell Wigginton, as well as assist leader Nick Weiler-Babb. Give me the Beavers here.

                  A non-conference game featuring two Pac-12 teams in China thats being played at 10:30 p.m. EST on a Friday night. Yes, this seriously counts as a non-conference game. Colorado returns pretty much everyone from a team that really found its groove to end the season in Pac-12 play. While I do think Arizona State is underrated coming into the season, McKinley Wright and Tyler Bey will be too much for the Sun Devils to handle.

                    Statistically these two teams are virtual mirror images of each other. Ball State had a let down game last week against Ohio but prior to that loss the Cardinals had one 3 in a row against good competition in beating Toledo, Eastern Michigan and Northern Illinois. Both Ball State and Western Michigan recently played Eastern Michigan, Ball State beat EMU 29-23 and and Western Michigan lost to EMU 27-34, extrapolate out those numbers and I think Vegas has got the wrong team favored her. The Vegas money has been trickling in on Ball State here for a reason and I'll follow suit and sprinkle the money line.

                        Rutgers has a little momentum coming into this game with a surprise win over Liberty but one win doesn't make me forget how bad Rutgers has looked all year. Let's not kid ourselves, Illinois is the better all-around team at this point and their defense has stifled better offenses, so there's no reason to think they couldn't do the same against Rutgers. Moreover, the Fighting Illini's rushing attack is well-suited to exploit the Scarlet Knights' inability to stop the run consistently. Big number but I think Illinois should be able to win this one by 3 TD's. Score Prediction: Rutgers 17- Illinois 41

                          Ok State QB Spencer Sanders looked like the next coming of Patrick Mahomes after their first 3 games, but turnovers and a leaky defense has been the achilles heal for the Sanders and the Cowboys this season. TCU is a fickle team but their freshman QB has looked more than serviceable in the last 2 weeks. This sets up for a close back and forth game, but if OK State can avoid the turnovers I think they have a little more talent on offense and playing at home gives them the edge. OK State (Slight Lean).

                            Neither team lights the scoreboard on fire as the Jets are averaging just 2.50 goals per game and the Ducks are averaging just 2.46 goals per game so they're pretty equal offensively. In goals allowed per game, the Jets are giving up 3.08 per game while the Ducks are giving up 2.38. Although the ducks are at home, I am going to go with the Jets in this game due to the recent struggles of Ducks goaltender John Gibson who will most likely be back in net on Tuesday. With Gibson's recent struggles, the key to this game will be Jets goaltender Connor Hellebuyck, who I believe will have a big game against a soft offensive team like the Ducks. Give me the Jets.

                              With the way both of these teams are struggling it could be a good game, but the Lightning have a lot more talent on the roster than the Rangers, but at +165 odds the betting value is with the plus money.
