Taking the Jags here - Iâ€™ve been waiting for the Browns to play their best game. Now with both teams missing multiple players, Iâ€™m expecting this one to be a little goofy and unexpectedly close. Browns 28 - Jacksonville 23.
Tough game to pick here, SMU didn't look great against a below average Tulane team last week, but are averaging 43 PPG this season and while they are going up against a descent Bearcat defense today, I think the Ponies win in a shootout. 42-35 SMU
I just read the Over is 8-0 in the last 8 matchups in this series, win the games are played at Oregon.
Both teams have had no trouble scoring points this season, and Oregon State has the 109th ranked defense. This should be a high scoring game and I'll follow the trends. Final score prediction, Oregon wins and the total goes over, 42-27.
Capela reported was sick in the last game and had his energy zapped by flu virus. D'Antoni said Capela is expected to be 100% tonight. Rockets scoring 120 points per game at home. Big spread but I'll lay the points
Clippers! Pacers already played back to back road games against Nuggets and Trailblazers. Not going to be any better tonight against the strong Clipper offense. Pacers have the challenge of keeping up with the points Pacers are going to bring but to play tough defense to try and slow them down. Pacers going to be too tired to keep up with Clippers.
Timberwolves haven't been covering lately and it's killed me. Knicks sure aren't my favorite team and their record sucks but I actually think they can get this cover on the road. They seem to play well ATS so I'm leaning that way today.
Memphis may have won two in a row but the Grizzlies have nothing to play for at this point so would imagine it's hard to get pumped up for a game that doesn't matter. The Magic knows that wins are important if they want to make up ground in the playoff picture and potentially squeak into the postseason. Orlando has been playing solid basketball and they are playing better offense lately. I got them pegged to get past Memphis at home.
Give me Iowa -2. Hawkeyes are the hotter team right now and have been great at home all season. If you take the points here, youâ€™re basically saying that Maryland gets the win on the road and with Iowa being 16-2 SU at home this season, I just donâ€™t see it happening. Iâ€™ll lay the points with Iowa on their home floor.
