I like BYU to continue unbeaten here, although it'll certainly get a test from Utah State's #10 ranked offense. The Aggies are a solid team offensively who could catch the Cougars in the right moment with a backup QB at the helm. BYU QB Jaren Hall went down with a lower leg injury on the final drive against Arizona State in Week 3. But backup QB Baylor Romney stepped right in and led a scoring drive, and then took the team to a win last week against USF. I expect Baylor Romney to even be more comfortable here tonight against an Aggies defense that ranks 124th in the nation.
TOO MANY POINTS - This is a quirky Bulldog team with just enough good parts to pull this off. Miss State came up with a whopping 46 rebounds in the win over South Carolina a few days ago including ten on the offensive glass. The shots have been dropping lately, hitting close to 50% from the field over the last four games. Yeah, Alabama is great on the boards, but the Bulldogs were dead even in rebounding margin in the first game. This spread just doesn't pass the eye test, I like the points and putting $25 on the ML.
San Diego State was able to win the first meeting in overtime and they didn't shoot well from three. The Aztecs have a suffocating defense and if they shoot well from 3 point land today they will bury Boise.
Buehler? Bueheler? Buuehler?? Are the Dodgers holding Buehler back for a possible game 7, the Devil Rays have their ace Snell on the bump tonight. Its going 7 boys. Too much money to be lost on TV ads.
Arizona can run hot or cold, but they should have no problem mopping the flood with the Jets today. The Cardinals are playing consecutive road games on the on the opposite coast, which is tough to do. Unless it's against the Jets. The Jets are awful and Arizona lost a game they shouldn't have last week in Carolina. They get back on track here.
Too many points, I'll take Vegas and the 11 points. This is a big number for a divisional tilt and I expect the Raiders offense to keep them in this game. The Chiefs rank down at 28th in the NFL against the run and surrendered 185 rushing yards against the Patriots last week. The Chiefs were lucky to cover last week against the Pats and I think these double digit numbers catchup with the bookmakers today.
UCF sometimes gets overvalued in these American Athletic Conference games (2-6 against the spread last 8 games), and this tag is perhaps worth waiting on for a price drop, I would like this line a lot more at 27.5 but UCF should kick the shit out of a bad ECU team today.
Celtics win this game with a big performance from Brown. Jaylen Brown prop bet OVER 20.5 points. Brown has topped the 20-point mark in each of the last three games of the series, shooting 60 percent from the field and 53.8 percent from three-point range. Miami content with doubling Jayson Tatum and I like Brown to go off tonight.
We saw 140 points in game 1 and 208 points in game 2, and I'm leaning towards taking the OVER 214 in game 3. The Nuggets rank 11th this postseason in defensive efficiency and have to push the pace offensively to have any chance here.
When these two teams squared off in Tulsa last year, the Golden Hurricane hung around for a while until the dam burst in the second half. The Cowboys eventually prevailed, 40-21. TU probably doesn't have as much chance this season to keep it close. Oklahoma State is a different team at T. Boone Pickens Stadium and I predict they pour on the points early in the game and then cruise to a win and cover. Prediction: Oklahoma State 42, Tulsa 17
Syracuse's difficult start continues with a road game against Pitt. On paper, just like the Tar Heels last week, the Panthers are by far the better team in multiple aspects and should roll but 21 points is a really big number. I think Pittsburgh is a bit overvalued after its shutout win, while Syracuse) is underrated after the atrocious showing against a really good UNC team. My Prediction is this one is closer than Vegas is predicted, I've got Pittsburgh winning a 31-17 type of game.
BerrÃos has left his shaky start to the season behind hime (let's hope). He has held opponents to a .183/.272/.280 slash line across his last four starts, during which he has 31 strikeouts in 22 2/3 innings. I like Berrios to win the starter battle in this game and put Minnesota in a good position for a win.
The Oakland Athletics are a team I was very high on entering this season and even have a future bet on them for the World Series, but Minor hasn't been good this season, and the A's are running into a red hot Mariners club.
Betting Under 6.5 takes balls. Darvish and Bauer + wind blowing in 12 mph and both the Cubs and Reds lineups are in the bottom-5 in batting average and the starters donâ€™t walk many hitters. This total is 6.5 for a reason. 3-2 type of game.
Leaning Houston -2.5 on the spread but I think the value bet here is on the UNDER 44. The Bills have the stronger defense while the Texans will be extra motivated if Watt is able to line up along the defensive line. Itâ€™s also the first career playoff game for Allen under center and predict the Texansâ€™ pass rush could force some costly mistakes. Bills are much improved but I think they are a year away from making any real noise and Houston is over due for a playoff win.
I cant trust the Cowboys on the road considering the last time they went to New York they got stomped by the Jets.....who just lost to the tanking Dolphins. There is something about this team that they simply lose their edge when they go on the road. If the Giants can score first and throw off the run game for the Cowboys they will cover this spread.
The Jets have renewed confidence after beating the cowboys, but I think the game against the Cowboys last week was an aberration (Cowboys played awful in that game) and don't see the Jets winning this game. The Patriots already have one home win over the Jets this season, have the #1 ranked defense and #3 offense, plus the Pats have extra rest going into this game compared to the Jets, since the Patriots played the Thursday night game of week 6. Not in love with this spread but lean laying the 9.5 with New England here in a 30-17 type of score.
Verlander was nails in game 1 but do we expect him to blank the Rays at home again? -250 is crazy. You can predict a low scoring game and that means one swing of the bat could change the outcome. Verlander is tough to bet against but at +200 I think the betting value is with Tampa.
LA Lafayette is an offensive powerhouse that leads the entire country with a sizzling 314 rushing yards per game. I expect big damage against a porous Appalachian State rush defense. App State is a speedy group but I think think Louisiana defense will be up to the challenge and will dominate the trenches on offense. I see a close game for 3 quarters but too much UL. LAF in the end here at home.
