Tennessee has a talented offensive line and they have talent on defense but their offense is limited because they don't have a quarterback. I just think Auburn is going to have a lot more success on offense tonight. Auburn rolls at home 38-24.
Big number and could be a let down spot for Bama. Was thinking points here for a second but fact is Georgia beat Tennessee by 23 and Kentucky beat them by 27. I'll lay the points, Bama rolls, 42-17 type of game.
The Blue Jays turn to their ace after falling 3-1 in Tuesdayâ€™s series opener. Look for Ryu to replicate his prior success against the Rays this season and back Toronto +130 in a slightly higher-scoring game.
Give me the O's and 1.5X on my money here. Hamels has not pitched in a game since September 28, 2019 and Baltimore has the offense to keep up with Atlanta, as they showed in their 14-1 series-opening win. I can't back the Braves with this much juice behind Cole Hamels when we have no idea what to expect from him in this game.
The Wildcats can lock up the No. 1 seed in the SEC Tournament and win the regular-season conference title with a victory here today. Kentucky is looking to pay Auburn back for a 75-66 win by the Tigers on the Plains back on Feb. 1. After a two-game losing skid on the road, the Tigers have rattled off wins and covers in the past two. However, theyâ€™re 2-4 SU/1-5 ATS in the past six on the road, and they havenâ€™t won in regulation away from home since Jan. 4 at Mississippi State.
Kentucky should be able to polish off Auburn in this one, claiming the regular-season SEC title along the way. The Tigers have been very good at home, but theyâ€™ve struggled mightily on the road. You can expect Big Blue nation to be partying another conference championship at Rupp with a resounding win.
This game might not be on your radar tonight but I think it's the best bet on the board. I like Rutgers to lean on The UMass Minutemen are still making adjustments to the FBS level and lost a lot of players from last years team. The Minutemen only return 5 starters at offense and 3 starters on defense and have clear concerns on defense. The Rutgers Scarlet Knights may be riding an 11-game losing streak, but let's not forget they took Michigan State down to the wire in their season finale and only lost to Penn State by 13 points. There's a big difference in talent here for these two teams and Rutgers will dominate the line of scrimmage and should be able to run the ball at will against UMass porous offense. I expect this one to get ugly...lay the wood...Rutgers -16.
Cavaliers are choking! The Beard and gang will put on a show tonight against Cleveland. I'm not typically fond of eating this double digit chalk but I'll make an exception in this game. Rockets get the cover.
Weather is forecasted to be a cold mess in Kansas City tomorrow, 70% chance of snow/rain and 34 degrees at kickoff....and gusting winds up to 15MPH. I think these conditions favor the run game and the team with the better defense. I full expect to see this total of 57 drop to 53-54 before kickoff so lock in the UNDERS now.
Siding with the Portland Trailblazers at home in this one against Charlotte Hornets. Charlotte isn't good on the road plus they've dropped the last six of nine. The Trail Blazers are averaging 112 ppg and giving up 117 ppg, and to top it off Charlotte is getting outscored by 8 points per game. Portland is not only playing good ball right now, they are also great at covering the spread.
I'm not sure why the Cowboys would leave the offensive starters in this game more than a couple of series, this is a throw away game for the Cowboys. Expect a big day from Saquon Barkely and little offensive production from Dallas. Giants win this game 23-9
The analytics models all seem to like the Vikings, with Number Fire, Microsoft Cortana, Pro Football Focus and Five Thirty Eight all siding with Minnesota to win this game....but what do computers know? Bears are still incented to win this game and I'm going with my instincts here- I think it's a close game so I want the points in my pockets.
Both Clemson and Mississippi St play defense but neither teams has been scoring a lot of points against lesser competition. This matchup should be a slow paced low scoring game. UNDER 134.5 is best bet.
NC State is more than capable of winning this game by 24+ points. East Carolina can run hot or cold as they were competitive against Memphis and only lost to UCF by 17 points. The difference in this game is that NC State will have a huge advantage on offense in this one and going up against East Carolin'a defense that is ranked 95th in the country.
This Akron state team lost by 21 to a really good Ohio team only lost by 10 to a solid NIU team. I'm not sure South Carolina is good enough to be laying 30 points against Akron in this spot. Too many points.
This is a battle of two of the hottest teams in the NFL, which may actually present a quality Thursday night game. I don't see a lot of value here tonight for bettors as either team could win this game. I do think it will be a close game and it could be decided by a field goal, IMO that makes the 3.5 point spread a half-point more than it should be. For that reason I'll take Carolina and the points. My Pick: Carolina Panthers +3.5
*OAKLAND +2.5* - Thereâ€™s not a whole lot of intrigue here and it should be a pretty close game, but Oakland should have the edge here tonight because San Francisco is working with a skeleton crew tonight. San Francisco's injured player list is longer than than the Raiders wrap sheets. Richard Sherman is out, Garcon is out, Garoppolo is out and backup QB Beathard is questionable with a wrist injury. I think Oakland gets their 2nd win of the season tonight.
The Hogs are a terrible team this year but have looked better in the last 2 weeks and coming off a win against a good Tulsa team. Yes, they just beat up on Tulsa, but let's not forget that they are still at 0-4 in league play, and they have allowed 40 ppg in those games. Vanderbilt is getting close to grabbing a win within the SEC, and I feel that they WILL get the job done in this favorable matchup today.
