Casey Mize will get lit up against Boston's #4 offense and Detroit has the worst bull pen in the MLB. Martin Perez doesnâ€™t really good deep in games and in two of his last three starts he has only gone 3.2 innings.
Detroit is flat awful this season. Boston RL -1.5 (+110) OVER 9.
Detroit's offense can't get much worse - they have only scored 10 runs in last 7 days with a .174 average. Rodon has been stellar this season, boasting a 0.47 ERA through three starts with a no hitter a few weeks back. Detroit's woes will continue tonight.
Take the 16.5 points, right? Not so fast. the Jazz are coming off an upset loss to Washington but the Thunder are horrific lately, theyâ€™re banged up, and theyâ€™re 0-6 SU/ATS over the past six. I like the Jazz here to do just enough in a 123-104 type of game (1 Unit).
The Celtics kicked off the road trip with a resounding win over Denver Nuggets, and they are on a three-game heater. They're playing much better basketball than the Trail Blazers who limp in just 1-3 SU/ATS across the past four...give me the free point and the hotter team here.
Titans will have at least 10 players out-rested-they haven't been able to practice till at least today. Buffalo is rested and has at least been able to of practiced. Bills should be fairly healthy for this game. All the picks I have seen pick Buffalo.
Nebraska has had a lack luster season but I think they matchup well against Purdue. #1 The Cornhuskers are among the most effective rushing teams in the conference, and they're facing a Purdue defense that has struggled to stop the run consistently. #2 The Boilermakers, meanwhile, are starting a shaky freshman at quarterback who was benched for much of their loss to Illinois last weekend.
Michigan should win this game but 21 just doesn't pass the eye test in my opinion. This Terps team has lost five of its last six games but I think this is a look ahead spot for Michigan. Maryland should be able to run the football and score a couple of touchdowns to stay within 3 TD's here.
Before you jump on CU +20.5, have you know that Colorado have been decimated with injuries on defense. Against ASU and Arizona they lost both corners, a starting linebacker and their starting safety. Things have gotten so thin on defense that 3rd string QB Sam Noyer is playing in the defensive secondary. The good news for Colorado is their stagnant offense is expected to get back Laviska Shenault Jr., as well as KD Nixon and Jalen Harris; and Mustafa Johnson, Mikial Onu and Aaron Maddox are all possible returns as well. Despite having Herbert, the Oregon hasn't been able to get on track this season but I predict they find success agains this banged up CU defense. With CU getting several key players back on offense I expect the Buffs to do enough for a backdoor cover, but the value bet for me here is the OVER 57.5. I predict Oregon wins a 42-24 type of game.
Statistically NC State should be 10 point favorites. NC has a top 40 offense and top 50 defense and Syracuse ranked 95 and 105 respectively. IF NC State plays up to their potential and they limit their turnovers, I like the Wolfpack at home here laying only 4.5
I like how the Pirates are fighting recently but this Braves team is proving time and time again that they are too much to handle. The Braves are starting to get better starting pitching to go along with their potent line up and that spells trouble here. Pittsburgh has dropped eight out of their last ten games, while Atlanta has put together a nice 6 game winning streak. Julio Teheran is on an incredible run considering what he looked like earlier this season, allowing one or zero earned runs in seven consecutive starts. The combo of Teheran on the mound and the Braves bats producing the way they are, Take the Braves here and sprinkle a little on the Run Line
Due to concerns about Looney being unavailable, Klayâ€™s injury and the Warriors ATS record as a home favorite this season, I'm not betting this game before the tip and would instead consider a strategy of waiting until the game starts and if the Warriors are down a significant amount of points at any time, recently itâ€™s been in the second quarter and halftime, and then betting the live spread or taking the moneyline with good odds, but only if Klay is active and good to go.
It's time for the Portland Trail Blazers to get nasty because, hey â€“ if not in the Western Conference finals vs. the Golden State Warriors, when? I still believe Warriors are going to miss KD here at some point, got to take the points tonight. Never quit.
The Portland Trail Blazers beat the Warriors in the last meeting by 22 points as two-point underdogs and that was against a healthy Warriors team. The Dubs are banged up and without their best player. I really thought this spread would have been -2 or -3 and it opened at -8? WTF, give me the points.
Warriors might be potentially playing last game in Roaracle. So stay together and get this 3 peat done. 10 more wins to go. I won't be able to bear another heartbreak this week. Barcelona has done enough.
