Triston McKenzie is the projected starting pitcher for the Indians. He is 1-4 with a 5.91 ERA. McKenzie was blasted for five runs, eight hits and a walk in just four innings in a loss against Houston on Tuesday. The Indians are 2-5 in McKenzie’s past seven starts, and they have lost by two or more runs in four of those five setbacks. Give me the Rays with Ryan Yarbrough on the hill today.
The Jazz havenâ€™t played since Thursday, which is just long enough to get rested and healthy without waiting long enough for rust to set in. Utah was the best home team in the NBA this season at 31-5. The Jazz almost always boast a huge advantage at home due to Utahâ€™s elevation, which should be especially tough on an already tired LA team.
Kyle Hendricks was solid in his last outting, but I think he goes back to his terrible ways in the last game. Hendricks currently sits with a 5.27 ERA and the Cardinals are going to have their way with him.
The Reds bullpen has been an issue this year and now they send out Jeff Hoffman who has had issues going more than four innings as of late. The Brewers offense hasnâ€™t been strong but they should do enough to get the W here against Hoffman.
My first response to this line was to grab the 10 points, but that would be a rookie move. Sure the Clippers have lost three straight and the Raptors just beat the Lakers, but Kawhi is finally healthy and you can't expect Paul George to continue to struggle. I think the healthy Clippers flex their muscles at home tonight and win by double digits.
Syracuse, just like every March, is starting to play its best basketball of the season. If the Orange can get off to an early start with Buddy Boeheim leading the charge, it will make things tough on San Diego State.
Utah has a veteran team with 4 starters returning from last year and should have plenty of chemistry right out of the gate. The Utes could surprise and make the NCAA Tournament this season, but weâ€™ll see how that goes. The Huskies were steam rolled by Baylor in their season opener...Small sample size but I've got the Utes tonight.
The Dolphins offensive line comes off its worst performance of the season, and now Tua Tagovailoa is out and guard Solomon Kindley (foot) is out today. I love Fitsmagic but I think Miami is starting to show us they are who we thought they are. I'll take a chance with Jets +7 with Darnold back at the helm.
"It was around the second quarter of Packers-Bucs when I decided Tampa Bay's the best team in the NFL. Until the Buccaneers stop blowing teams out, I'm not moving off that stance. Even with Chris Godwin out this week, this Giants defense shouldn't present much of a challenge. Tom Brady eats up play it safe zone defenses with long drives, and the only way past this fierce Tampa defense is over the top. Daniel Jones is among the least likely quarterbacks to take that approach, ranking higher than only one other starting QB (Drew Brees) in deep-pass percentage, according to Pro Football Focus. The Giants don't give Jones enough time to set up for long throws against most defenses, much less one as good as the Bucs'."
I do believe Minnesota can cover the 7 points but it will be close. It's diifficult to go against Russell Wilson and this offense at home even though the defense is a mess. Taking Seattle to win outright.
The Knights had 10 players opt out due to COVID, including redshirt junior and backup QB Darriel Mack Jr., redshirt senior DB Tay Gowan and redshirt junior DL Kalia Davis. But they are still ranked in the Top 20.
The Yellow Jackets were expected to be bottom feeders in the ACC, but expectations may have changed after an upset road win against Florida State last week.
Public money coming in on UCF as this line has moved to -8.5 at most book, but it's hard not to like the points after watching GT's true freshman QB Jeff Sims cut up FSU last week. I'll take the points in a game that I think GT could surprise and win out right.
The Jazz had the lead nearly the entire game until late into the 3rd and heading into the 4th where they gave up a 17-0 run. This team is most definetly struggling right now.. This was a injury depleted Denver team that dominated them late. Jokic was played like a man amongst boys in this one.. Doesn't help Mitchell went 1-12 from the floor either. Good call on Denver fellas.
The supremely intelligent Mr. Spats likes the Jazz plus the points this evening. Mr. Spats is highly educated. Pay attention! You should glean all of the knowledge you can from Mr. Spats. For now, just take the Jazz tonight. You're welcome.
The Knicks have lost 11 of their last 13, including a 111-105 defeat at the hands of the Denver Nuggets on Sunday. I like the Hawks +1.5 as road dogs as they return to their appropriate level of competition against the banged up Knicks. Jabari Parker should be back in the lineup tonight as well.
Memphis is likely going to win this game but double digits here feels like too many. The Bearcats have a stout defense and allows less than 20 points per game which makes double digit spreads tough to cover. Cincinnati has a solid offense as well; Ridder and the running backs are going to get theirs against the less than impenetrable Memphis rushing defense. Give me the 13 points.
Taking the Red Raiders plus the pts as I believe they win SU... Duffey has been great since taking over. Extremely accurate with a great O line who havenâ€™t given up a sack the last 2 weeks. TCU is 1-3 on the road with their only win coming at Purdue which doesnâ€™t really mean a whole lot. I realize that TCU has a good defense but they are in the 70â€™s for pressure . Tech wonâ€™t allow them to dominate the line . Letâ€™s go Raiders
This game will likely come down to how well Temple can contain the Tulane ground attack. Justin McMillan is one of the AACs most talented quarterbacks, but the Owls have had more trouble containing passers such as SMUs Shane Buechele, Memphis Brady White, and UCFs Dillon Gabriel than the more mobile types. Temple also happens to be at home, where it is 4-1 this season with wins over Maryland, Memphis, and Georgia Tech. Tulane has dropped 2 of their last 3 but was against quality teams. This game could really go either way but would lean Temple -6 at home. The UNDER 56 also has some value as two great defenses, two run first offenses and Temple doesn't score a lot of points.
Love Georgia in this game. This line just dropped from -3 to -2.5 - thank you public! I watched the Georgia Florida game and the Bulldogs ran rough shod over Florida. And Florida has since beat Auburn. Georgia has the one ugly loss to South Carolina but we've seen recently that the Gamecocks are better than we originally gave them credit so I'm not looking too much into that loss. Georgia is the better team here and just we saw in the Florida game(s) I think Georgia dominates the line of scrimmage and the Bulldog defense will be living in the Auburn backfield making for a long day for Bo Nix. Barring any crazy turnovers ratios I like Georgia to win and cover.
We have to look no further than the Arkansas St game for both teams to compare these two squads. Texas State LOST to Ark State 14-38 and LA Lafayette BEAT Ark State 37-20, so when you extrapolate out the scores then it points to a Arkansas State winning by 41 points here. So if LA Lafayette can beat Ark State by 17 then you have to like LA Lafayette to easily cover this 23 point spread against Texas State. Lay the points here as this one sets up for a blowout in Lafayette.
