Golden State offense that's been in a slump, as they haven't scored more than 104 points in each of its past six games. Given the Mavericks' ability to limit teams scoring opportunities, I like for the Mavericks to keep the Warriors' slump going. And Doncic has had the Warrior's number lately. Thick spread here today but I like the Mavs by double digits.
Despite their last two losses, the Indiana Pacers have been looking good this season. With how on fire Oladipo is, they should have plenty of offense to get past a banged up Nets team. The key to the game for Brooklyn is to dominate rebounding and make the most of their chances. Their typical 44 percent shooting will not cut it against Indiana.
James and the Cavaliers are in red-hot form. They have found all the offensive fluency they need, and that should continue against a team adjusting to a slow return from their best player. Score prediction: Cleveland Cavaliers 112 - Washington Wizards 104
PickGeorge Mason lost five out of the previous seven matches against weak competition, including losses to weak James Madison and Georgia Southern. On the flip side, Penn State recorded four wins out of seven against, including wins over George Washington and Iowa and a close loss to NC State. This is a clash of two different talent levels and Penn State should win easily by double digits.
The Tar Heels rallied from a 15-point first-half deficit to beat the Volunteers 73-71 in North Carolina last season. Williams had 12 points and Maye was held to four points on 1-of-6 shooting as the Tar Heels played without Berry, who was injured.
The Cardinal are laying less than ten points and because of that, you need to roll with them. They havenâ€™t been great ATS this season which means they are WAY overdue for a double-digit win. After all, theyâ€™ll be at home in front of their fans and will have the best player on the court in Reid Travis. Lay the points here!
USC should win the game, but the UC Santa Barbara Gauchos should make things really interesting. UC Santa Barbara has to feel confident playing a relatively shaky Trojans squad. Got to love all of these points.
TAKE THE POINTS - The Washington Redskins offense is very skeptical right now as putting any type of money on them is somewhat of a risk right now. However looking on the other side, the Arizona Cardinals have been showing some fight as of late and keep close distance with any of their opposing teams. Give me the points all day.
Minus the Monday night game against Philly, the Seahawks haven't looked good of late. And the Rams offense is only looking better as the season progresses. It is not likely that the Seahawks will be able to hold them to 10 points a second time. It is very worrying how much Seattle relies on one man, Russell Wilson, for their scoring. That worry is amplified against a team like the Rams that love to pressure quarterbacks and cause fumbles. Score prediction: LA Rams 24 Seattle 17
Even with the Steelers new found offensive power, this game will remain very close. Do not expect Brandin Cooks to be shut down again. He will have a few big catches that will put the Patriots right in field goal range. the return of Rob Gronkowski will also be key, especially on third downs. Brady is not likely to throw more interceptions when he has all of his receiving weapons at his disposal. The Steelers will need to go back to their roots and keep this game as low scoring as they can. Although they will not be able to shut out the Patriots, they will at least have the offense to keep up. Score prediction: New England 31 Pittsburgh 24
The 49ers are coming off an impressive with behind a big game from Garoppolo and I see him having another great game facing the weakness of the Tennessee defense, which is their pass defense. San Fran will also play good D and while this game will be close the 49ers will get the win and cover the spread winning their 3rd in a row and 2nd home game of the season.
Oakland is very close to just tanking it. Thatâ€™s the way it looked in the first three quarters against Kansas City, especially when they got down big. If Dallas can pressure Carr with Lawrence and force him into turnovers, this will be a blowout. Either way, I expect Prescott to have another solid game, knowing that his team needs him before Zeke returns.
Miami C Hassan Whiteside (left knee bone bruise) did not travel to Charlotte last night and is unlikely to suit up for this contest. The Clippers are better on offense and on the glass. Take the points on Saturday. Final Score Prediction, Miami Heat win close game but fall short ATS 104-103.
Best NBA pick today catching 11.5 points - This Suns team have really stunk in straight up action but for bettors Phoenix has been good going 5-2 ATS in last 7 games. Another road loss for up and down Phoenix offense but for us bettors Suns get it done again. Final Score Prediction, Minnesota Timberwolves win but fall short of covering ATS 101-92.
Prediction: ***Utah Utes +3*** (Super Dog - Get some on the money line!)
Here is why the Utah Utes are going to even this amazing series. The Utes have been able to pass around the ball extremely well and they are better behind the arc compared to the BYU Cougars. The Cougars have a huge line to cover, as the Utes have played BYU until the final seconds. This will be a close game.
Prediction: ***Arkansas State -3*** (Go Big - 4/5 confidence)
Looking at the betting trends - The Blue Raiders are 0-4 ATS in their last four at neutral sites, 5-15-1 ATS in their last 21 on fieldturf, 0-4 ATS in their last four bowl games, 0-6 ATS in their last six following a win, 0-5 in their last five in December, and 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings between the two teams. Arkansas State is 14-6 ATS in its last 20 overall and 7-3 ATS in its last 10 after gaining more than 450 yards of total offense in its previous outing. Count on those trends continuing.
Got to love all these points - Back to back spot for Spurs and after getting hammered at Houston think you have to fade San Antonio tonight. Mavericks have not been great but getting nearly double digits it's enough for us to jump on Dallas tonight. Final Score Prediction, Dallas Mavericks win and cover ATS 107-104.
