    Best matchup tonight is a clash of two extremely good teams that are dangerous and can do damage. The big thing in this one is the location. While the 76ers are terrific at home, they are just 10-12 on the road this season compared to 19-4 at home. While Philadelphia came up with a win here in their first crack at playing at Bankers Life Fieldhouse this season, you cant necessarily expect that to happen again. Indianas depth and versatility pays dividends as the Pacers come up with a victory here.

    My Pick: Indiana -3.5

    More easy money in this one. This Iowa team is the far better team in this match up. The Nittany Lions are 3 games below .500 while the Hawkeyes have only lost 3 games all season. Sure the Lions play better at home but I dont see them winning this game tonight. Iowa is red-hot, winning nine out of their last ten games, and they have also won three consecutive conference games which included a 72-62 upset over Ohio State in their previous game. The Hawkeyes are playing solid defense allowing only 63 and 62 points respectively in their last two games which will make it hard for Penn. St. to keep up. Furthermore, Penn State is scuffling, losing four consecutive games, and their offense is a glaring weakness right now. They have only averaged 56.7 points in their current four game slide.

    My Pick: Iowa +1.5

    Lock of the night right here. In a virtual Pick em I love the Houston Cougars in this game. For the Cougars, senior guard Corey Davis Jr. (team-high 15.5 ppg) and junior guard Armoni Brooks (14.2 ppg, team-high 6.8 rpg) have hit a combined 108 shots from three-point range. Their best players are playing well and is what is leading them tot heir hot start. Houston is also 6-1 against the spread in its last seven on the road against opponents with winning home records, 8-3 ATS in its last 11 following a win, and 9-4-1 ATS in the last 14 meetings between the two teams. The Mustangs are 2-5 ATS their last seven at home against the Cougars. Go with the Cougs in this one

    My Pick: Houston -1

    disagree here if you have watched any of Houstons games. They are talented on both ends and will over match this SMU team

    My Pick: Houston -1

    I like the Red Raiders at home in this one. The Cyclones have covered the spread just four times in their last 14 trips to Texas Tech and the home team is 4-1 against the spread in the last five meetings in this series. The Red Raiders are giving up just 88.0 points per 100 possessions during conference play. Their Defense is what is winning them games and keeping them undefeated at home. Their defense also limits the opposing teams to an effective field goal percentage of 42.2 percent and forces turnovers on 23.8 percent of their defensive possessions. All three of those marks are tops in the Big 12 coming into this game. Iowa State has an impressive win against Kansas this season but they have been forced to rely more on the 3-ball during conference play. Look for the Red Raiders to cover the spread at home in this spot on Wednesday night.

    My Pick: Texas Tech -5.5

    Value pick of the night here. I like the Knights to win this one outright on the road against a very good Jets team. Why? because Vegas is 4-0 in the last four meetings between these two teams and Hellebuyck has some mediocre career numbers versus the Golden Knights head into this matchup. The Jets starting goaltender has also been much more vulnerable this season in comparison to years past, as his current GAA and save percentage would stand as the second-highest marks of his career in both categories. Meanwhile, Fleury has been lights out for the better part of the past two months and Vegas has been on fire during that span. Take the Golden Knights to come out on top versus one of the top home teams in the NHL on Tuesday night. IF you can parlay this with the Penguins you should get some good value

    My Pick: Vegas +100

    This is a match up of two hot teams on the ice as the Penguins are 8-2-0 in their last 10 games while the Sharks have won six straight. Both teams know how to score and put up big numbers. I think its going to be a high octane affair going up and down the ice with plenty of talent on both sides of the rink. This is a tough call but I think there is some value with the Pens here. They play well on the road and have some momentum

    My Pick: Over 6.5

    Crawford is out and Booker is coming off an injury just makes me think that the Suns get blown out on the road against a solid Pacers team. Yes Phoenix may have come up with an upset win over the Nuggets but that game came at home. This contest is on the road, where the Suns are just 4-16 on the season. The Pacers are 14-5 at home and they are lights out defensively there this season. With the Suns struggling to score points as it is, this one ends up an Indiana victory.

    My Pick: Indiana -10.5

    Minnesota has had problems on the road this season, going just 6-15 away from the Target Center. The Timberwolves have won four of their last five but the problem is that they are still a team trying to find an identity. Losing a coach mid=season will do that to ya. Though they have been playing well under the new coach its tough to go on the road against a good home team and compete. Philadelphia, even with that loss to Atlanta Friday night, is 18-4 at home on the year. The 76ers should take care of business as Butler faces his former team.

    My Pick: Philadelphia -6.5

    I like the blazers in this one. They almost stole one last night in Denver at altitude against a top ranked team. The Trail Blazers have also been consistent this season in their ability to bounce back and avoid back-to-back losses. I think theyll continue that trend tonight and put an abrupt end to the Kings two-game winning streak. Not many people realize the Kings have the sixth-ranked scoring offense in the NBA, averaging 114.7 points per game. The problem, however, is their inability to stop anyone on defense. Opponents are averaging 115.6 points per against their defense, which ranks better than only the Atlanta Hawks, Washington Wizards and New York Knicks. I expect a more experienced Lillard to take advantage of his match-up against Fox and once again put up big numbers. There will be no excuses for a slow start from McCollum in this game. Hell essentially be playing against the 21st-ranked team in defensive efficiency. Gimme blazers with the points

    My Pick: Portland +2.5

    I like the way the nets have been playing over the last six weeks or so but having to deal with division rivals can be challenging. The Celtics have dominated the Nets in recent years, winning 10 straight meetings coming into this one. Boston has work to do in order to get back on track after letting that game against Orlando slip away. The Celtics look to make up some ground in the playoff picture and make up for 2 recent ugly losses. Ill take the Celtics in this one

    My Pick: Boston -4

    get this -8.5 line before it moves!! sharp money is all over spurs in this one. Why? the Spurs have played well against the spread, winning their last five games against Eastern Conference opponents and four of their last five home games against teams with losing road records. The Hornets have struggled against the spread, losing their last seven road games against teams with winning home records and seven of their last eight road games. They're also coming off a back to back and have been struggling.

    My Pick: San Antonio -8.5

    Looks like the Greek Freak is playing in this one and that spells trouble for Atlanta. Even though Atlanta picked up a win over Philadelphia in their last game they wont get the same break here. The Hawks caught a break without Embiid on the floor for the 76ers Friday night. The Bucks will also look to find a little extra energy and are going to be motivated to prove that the loss to Washington was a fluke. Love the bucks here

    My Pick: Milwaukee -9

    warriors have been an average team this year when in years past that has been were they excelled. On the other end the Mavs are great at home and I think they use that to keep it close. I think the Mavs win outright or lose by a couple, not 6

    My Pick: Dallas +6
