Money Risked represents $100 wagers. No actual money is being bet here.
  • Georgiev is the confirm starter for New York tonight. In the 23-year-olds only career start against Buffalo last season, he stopped 44 of 45 shots-faced in his teams 5-1 victory. Buffalo ends a homestand tonight against the subpar Rangers but I think they slightly overlook their competition and fall flat. I'm taking the dog. Rangers here.

    My Pick: New York +130

    This seems too good to be true. I'm all over the over of 123.5 on this. Bradley averages 69 PPG at home during conference and 68 on the season while giving up 68 PPG at home during conference and 67 on the season. On the flip side, Loyola has averaged 59 PPG on the road during conference (includes a fluke 35 point game) and 67 on the season. Loyola gives up 66.5 PPG during conference and 60 on the season. They have to average 62 points each and Bradley has failed to reach that number 7 times in 25 games (2 times at home) while Loyola has failed 8 of 25 games this season (5 on the road). The only way this doesn't go over is if Loyola has a bad shooting night and Bradley isn't known for having a lock down D. My prediction, 67-64.

    My Pick: Over 123.5

  • Phoenix vs Los Angeles (Feb 13) February 13 at 3:08pm

    I'm all over the Suns here. LA is virtually a completely different and somewhat unrecognizable team after the trade deadline. They don't look like they have much chemistry. I like Tyler Johnson as a pickup and leader for this young Suns team & expect them to compete tonight after seeing superior competition the last week or so.

    My Pick: Phoenix +8.5

    Irving out, Rozier doubtful against the Pistons - CelticsBlogBostons guard rotation could be pretty light tonight in the last game before the All-Star Break. https://www.celticsblog.com/2019/2/13/18223536/irving-out-rozier-doubtful-against-the-pistons

    LSU vs Kentucky (Feb 12) February 12 at 10:20am

    LSU has won 12 of their last 13 games and the Tigers offense has been solid as they rank 18th in scoring offense and have been putting an eye popping 83 PPG. The Tigers are going to have their hands full today going up against an equally hot Kentucky team that 5-0 ATS in their last 5 and an impressive 13-0 at home. But when I look at this spread, I just think 8.5 points is a lot of points to give a team that has the athleticism to give Kentucky a run for their money.

    My Pick: LSU +8.5

  • Brooklyn vs Toronto (Feb 11) February 11 at 1:54pm

    I think Brooklyn was just off defensively in Chi-town and let it get out of hand. With LeVert and Crabbe back in rotation they have some nice pieces to compliment this already overachieving Nets Squad. Adding a scoring big to your rotation, one of which really hasn't had one all year being that Valanciunas was out all year, will need to figure out it's identity. Certainly they are too talented to lose this game but I think Brooklyn just covers. I'll take the points.

    My Pick: Brooklyn +10.5

    Kansas vs TCU (Feb 11) February 11 at 9:13am

    I played Ok State +10.5 against KU on Saturday, and lost by a bucket as the Jayhawks lit it up from 3 point land in that game. Kansas is still dealing with some personnel issues with Lagerald Vick out today and possibly Marcus Garrett out with ankle injury. TCU picked up their first road win in the Big 12 over top ranked Iowa State team and comes into this game with an impressive 11-1 record at home this season. TCU has been somewhat of a fickle team this year and has had some bad losses but I'll lay the 3 points today as more of a fade of a KU team dealing with some issues.

    My Pick: TCU +-3

    Oklahoma vs Baylor (Feb 11) February 11 at 9:04am

    Its been a tough stretch of four games for the Sooners and they are going up against a determined Baylor team after 2 in a row. The biggest factor here today for me is Baylor drilled Oklahoma 77-47 earlier this seaon (January 28), and since then the Sooners have lost by eight to West Virginia, one to Iowa State and 12 to Texas Tech. I expect to see the best version of OU tonight but Ill stick with Baylor here at home as they are simply the better team playing on their home floor. Note the Vegas money is also coming in on the Bears.

    My Pick: Baylor +-3.5

    Connecticut vs Memphis (Feb 10) February 10 at 11:53am

    Vegas line opened at 5 and line has moved to 8 and now at 7.5. If it goes to 8 again I might lean UCONN and the points. I'm guessing the average joe's started hammering Memphis when they read Jalen Adams was out for UCONN today. UCONN is a veteran team with a deep bench and could surprise in this game. But the Huskies will certainly miss Jalen Adams who was their top scorer (17PPG) and their 3rd best scorer Alterique Gilbert (13PPG) is not likely today. Gilbert has missed last 3 games with a pesky shoulder injury and status uncertain today, you might want to see what he looks like in pre-game warmup.

    SOOO UCONN will likely be without their 1st and 3rd best offensive players. That should mean less offensive output for UCONN tonight. The total is set at 155.5 because both of these teams score in buckets. Memphis 80PP and UCONN 77PPG, but I like the UNDER 155.5 tonight. I predict UCONN will run set plays, slow down pace of play and work the ball inside to their big men. And without 2 of 3 of their top scorers you have to expect lower scoring, combined Adams and Gilbert combined for 30 PPG. That's my 2 cents. Best of luck.

    My Pick: Under 155.5

    Connecticut vs Memphis (Feb 10) February 10 at 10:57am

    Un juego para mas parejo de lo que se ve en las lineas, al menos que la defensa de conneticut permita mas de 80 pts, el visitante es un mejor sembrado con iguales promedios ofensivos y defensivos, asi que me llevo a conneticut cubriendo los puntos y en teaser

    ----

    A game for more even than what is seen in the lines, unless the conneticut defense allows more than 80 pts, the visitor is a better seeded with equal offensive and defensive averages, so I took to Connecticut covering the points and in teaser

    My Pick: Connecticut +8

  • Orlando vs Atlanta (Feb 10) February 10 at 2:40pm

    Orlando has been sneaky good lately meanwhile the Hawks overachieving run of the year is over and reality is, they are not even a decent team. The magic have some guys turning into vets this season and they want to stay in the playoff conversation. They need a W here and they get it.

    My Pick: Orlando +1.5

      Im with you. Vegas has undervalued Orlando a lot lately and as you said, ATL just isnt that good.

    Texas vs West Virginia (Feb 09) February 9 at 3:17pm

    I like the Horns here today on the low line even if it is more of a fade of this really bad WVU team.

    My Pick: Texas -3.5

  • San Antonio vs Utah (Feb 09) February 9 at 2:18pm

    I'm all over the Spurs here. It's a tough road trip but Pop gets his guys ready for this one and bring a good gameplan against the perimeter threats here. Last time these two met in Utah the Jaz hit a ridiculous amount of 3's and blew the Spurs out. Look for this one to be a bit closer tonight.

    My Pick: San Antonio +7

    UT Arlington's season has been a tail of two tapes, after starting the season off slow they have won 7 of their last 8 games and although their offense has struggled to put points up on the board on the season. Appalachian State has played better as of late however, this is still the same team that has really struggled defensively and has already lost to the Mavericks 82-72 at home this season. UT Arlington has been impressive in what most thought would be a tough rebuilding year and as UT Arlington recently picked up big road wins at Georgia State & Texas State. UTA is the hotter team and already proven they can beat the Mountaineers on the road, so no reason to think they can't win by double digits here at home today. BOL!

    My Pick: Texas-Arlington -5.5

    Oklahoma St. vs Kansas (Feb 09) February 9 at 8:43am

    ***OK ST +11.5 - 4 UNIT PLAY**** The big news in this one is that Kansas's best 3 point shooter and top scorer Lagerald Vick is out indefinitely for the JayHawks, along with Azuibike who is also out. This is a great opportunity for Oklahoma State, who is just 2-7 in the league. Even with Vick, the Jayhawks had lost three of four games, so they were on a downward spiral. Its hard to believe KU was ranked 13th. That will change after this week. Take the Cowboys and the road dog.

    My Pick: Oklahoma St. +11.5
