Good spot for the plus money here. The Phillies signed Anderson to a one-year, $4 million contract in the offseason to shore up the back of their rotation. He pitched well this spring, easily locking up the No. 5 spot and should be able to win the duel against Marcus Stroman.
Tkachuk is tied for eighth in the league in hits with 60 this season and has shots on goal in 33 straight games dating back to last season. Heâ€™s a force most nights. Van Riemsdyk has four goals and nine points in 18 games playing on the clubâ€™s top line and is being counted on to provide offence.Anderson should get the nod at goalie and he's coming off a strong performance against NJ. Give me Ottawa at home at plus value on a 1 Unit play.
During the month of November, Harris has shot 7.7% from the 3-point line. LOL. He hasnâ€™t made a 3-pointer during the last five games and has gone 0-18 during that stretch. I believe Embiid is out in this one too - if he isn't, maybe we pull it out but I don't like this team without him on the court. SGA that the Thunder got from LAC, has doubled his production this year and is a killer defender. OKC fans get loud and it's a Friday night game. I don't trust my Sixers right now.
I'll take Lions offense over Bears defense with more trust in Patricia to get his defensive line to exploit Trubisky. I don't know if Nagy has enough up his sleeve to keep up with the pass attack of Detroit.
It's the revenge tour for the NBA against the Warriors. But damn if wise guys can't cash in on them still, even if they suck. +11.5 is a lot of points against an OKC team that is 27th in the NBA is Assisnt/Turnover Margin. Kerr will make sure his guys don't turn the ball over and at least cover. They're +500 on the moneyline!!!!! I can't help myself - I'm taking it.
How can you not love the Wolves here? KAT returns and Wiggins looks to have finally awaken as the budding star we've waited on. He's averaging more points then he has in three seasons and is playing with a ton of energy and what looks to be a chip on his shoulder leading the Wolves to a couple wins during KATs suspension. And you don't think he's hyped after being called B*tc# made by Embiid?
This guy is a gamer and he, Wiggins and whoever suits up at PG (yes, Teague is questionable and backup PG Shabazz Napier is already OUT) will run laps around these kids. Ja Morant is going to be great but this might as well be a D-league team when comparing it to a veteran NBA team.
Towns will have his hands full in the paint with Jonas Valanciunas, Jackson and Brandon Clarke in the paint but it will open a lot of things up for guys that are hot and have been taking more shots with KAT out. Now, they'll get shots, but wide open.
Take the Knicks on the first half +2 (-110). They're on a rest and Detroit is on the backend of a b2b that saw them lose to the lowly Wizards last night. With injuries a plenty, it's a good spot for the young Knicks to come out running. Fizdale has his players ready to come out firing early in this one.

Surprised to see UVA only getting 4 points and UNC getting this much respect. In all, the Irish return 7 of their top 8 scorers from last season lead by John Mooney. Cole Anthony is going to be damn good but I don't know about a double-digit favorite in this matchup. Garrison Brooks is the only guy that played in this starting lineup for UNC last year but, what's new at UNC? They're always going to have standout one and done talent. Either way, I'm backing ND.
Pacers were a huge letdown in Charlotte. Some sad sh*t losing to the Hornets like that. I want to but can't trust them on a back to back after an overtime loss. That said, it wasn't the most competitive game despite going to OT, they shouldn't be winded. Wizards are on a b2b too and the Pacers won both games last year against Washington at The Fieldhouse. Wiz are worse and Pacers are better. They only lost to the Hornets because FT shots which I put on the bummy refs. 42-7 in terms of trips to the line. That's some crazy ish right there. Won't happen to them at home. Take IND to cover and definitely on the ML.
I can get the Blues at + value, I'm taking it. Their total of 47 goals ranks them 4th in the West and 11th in the league and the Oilers look good at 7th best in the NHL in goals but they're young. This one comes down to a save or two.
Lead by this kid Matt Lewis, this JMU team has a legitimate trio of scorers that all were in double digits scoring last season. They aren't great but they have experience and chemistry and that's all it'll take against the 49ers. Charlotte is just a bad program and on the road were 3-9 last year. They bring back just 4 scholarship guys from that team. They had the worst scoring differential in CUSA. The Dukes cover this one easily.
This is one of the most intriguing match-ups of this first week of the college basketball season. Tony Bennett gets the respect he deserves ranking 11th in the Nation despite losing Deâ€™Andre Hunter, Ty Jerome and Kyle Guy to the NBA, following the programs fairytale March Madness and championship-winning Journey.
They still have plenty to stay relevant if not scary to opponents. Their recruiting class is headlined by standout shooting guard Casey Morsell and the team will rely heavily on workloads from F Mamadi Diakite and Braxton Key.
The Cuse are essentially hitting the restart button after losing key seniors in a disappointing 2018-19 season. But in a program lead by Boheim, things can change for the better quickly as the recruiting is always top-notch at Syracuse. Quincy Guerrier is a four-star recruit with a big frame that can slash to the rim and dominate the boards. He is a likely 1st round pick.
At the end of the day, Tony Bennett's squad will prove too disciplined and battle-tested to let this talented underclassman team make it uncomfortable. Ball control and fundamentals win this one for UVA 68 - 54.
Jonathan Bernier kicked out nine of 11 shots in relief against the Predators and is going to start this one. At +135 I'll take the risk. Detroit is bad scoring and defending but I like the odds against the Rangers who are 24th in goals scored against. Henrik Lundqvist is gonna be at Goalie for NY.
