Dodgers lineup is definitely Power Packed as we saw last night. Even if their game plan of using 7 different pitchers backfired the Dodgers strike like a cobra. The Rays have implemented their game plan and role of mongoose. Good showdown and series! Morton has pitched very well for the Astros and Rays in the post-season, Buehler is just a very good pitcher, Interesting matchup with two aces on mound against all this offensive firepower, but Iâ€™ve got a hunch we see a low scoring game tonight.
Blue Devils heads into this one looking to bounce back after a tough loss at Wake Forest. Theyâ€™ve had several days to rest after being on the short end of a double-overtime thriller. Virginia has struggled against the top-flight teams, while theyâ€™ve pieced together a nice win streak lately, the Blue Devils are the better bet to bounce back in this spot.
The Louisiana Tech Bulldogs are HOT and they're going to stay hot. On the offensive side of the ball they're well balanced with solid rushing and passing attacks averaging just over 38 ppg. They're only conceding about 23 ppg.
Marshall laid an egg against Rice but they've had a bye week to work on what went wrong. I see the Thundering Herd making this a good game but with the power of the LT offense being so great I think the Bulldogs will outlast and outscore Marshall to get the cover and the W.
OK STATE COWBOYS' TYLAN WALLACE - Done for the year OUT and out against TCU with torn ACL. Wallace suffered a knee injury during Wednesday's practice and underwent some testing Thursday to try and figure out the potential extent of the damage to his knee.
***OVER 56.5*** I lost money on Ok State last week and tempted to lay the big number with Baylor here, but Ok State did have 4 costly turnovers last week so don't get too deceived by last week's OSU score. But Baylor's offense continues to defy - Quarterback Charlie Brewer is 25th in the nation in completion percentage at 66.3 and 32nd in passing yards with 1,866. I've disliked Brewer the past 3 years but the kid keeps proving me wrong week after week and costing me money. The Bears' offense has been putting up big numbers, averaging 484.1 yards and 38.9 points per game. I like Baylor to win convincing here but this line at 18.5 is too thick. But I do like this total here at only 56.5. Baylor averaging almost 500 yards per game WVU has a couple receivers that can take the top off the defense and will find ways to score. And both teams are coming off of a bye week, so expect good offensive game plans from both teams. Baylor wins a 42-21 type of game. Let's cash that over play tonight.
Too many points here? Granted Rutgersâ€™ can't stop the run, giving up an average of 199 rushing yards per game â€” might not get exposed by an Indiana team that ranks second worst in the Big Ten in rushing offense (averaging 110 yards per game). But Rutgers hasnâ€™t proven it can produce much of an offense against Power-5 foes for two years now, and Nunzio Campanile changing the scheme on the fly doesnâ€™t appear to be helping the cause. The Hoosiers should cruise in this game but 4 TD's is a thick spread and leaves the back door ajar. Score Prediction: Indiana 31, Rutgers 6
Seattle hopes to stop the bleeding with ace Hernandez on the hill tonight. Mariners at even money here is a great spot to break their losing streak. I also like the UNDER 9. The Mariners have been hitting home runs, but they have been solo shots since no one has been able to get on base. Aside from Trout, the Angels offense does not scare anyone. This could be a combination of strong pitching and poor offense in this one.
The Panthers managed a win over ranked Florida State then turned around and quickly lost their mojo along with the next three games. They are playing pretty good on both sides of the floor and even held Louisville to only 66 points. Clemson had a great start to the season but when they moved into conference play they have struggled. They've lost 5 of their last 6 games. They aren't good ATS either. They've only covered 4 games out of 13 home games but the Panthers are pretty good at covering ATS. Pitt covered the last 8 games. I'm looking for Pitt to put some money in my pocket.
The Knicks have nowhere to go but up. They've lost so many games in a row I can't keep count anymore. I'm going to be watching Charlotte's Kemba Walker before I make a decision. He sprain his ankle Friday. Right now he's listed as probable but even if he does play I wonder how much pain he'll be in and how much it will slow him down. If he does play I'll take the Hornets to get the cover. If not, I may take the Knicks.Â
Unfortunate timing for the Pacers. Tonight they have to host Golden State, only the hottest team in the NBA right now. They just lost Oladipo and it showed when they lost to Memphis, a team that had dropped their last 8 games. Evans tried to make thing happen in Oladipo's spot but they put a lid on him. No way the Pacers stay with GS. Taking Golden to cover.
Texas Tech finally got a win, albeit nonconference, but still need to stop their Big 12 slide. They should be able to get that done against TCU tonight at home.Â The Horned Frogs just beat Florida with a solid defensive outing so they'll be looking for the same type of play against the Raiders. TCU may have held Florida but I don't think they will be able to slow down the Raiders enough. I would imagine the Raiders have regained some of their confidence and want to improve their conference record. My bet goes to Texas Tech to cover at home.
I was beginning to think it wasn't going to happen but Duke seem to be a full team again. Tre Jones came back to play this past weekend after missing several weeks and the team looked great. Their defense has really missed him. Notre Dame just got their ass kicked by Virginia so they will be looking to have a much better game against Duke. They didn't play well and are simply looking to be more competitive. I got Duke to cover. The unders aren't a bad bet either if you're looking for another one.
The Suns are setting. Not sure what happened but they've lost the last 5 games. They are giving up 115 points per game and their offense isn't good enough to outscore teams who can put up that many points. I know the Suns won this matchup last week but it was an anomaly. Don't count on it happening again. I predict Denver Nuggets get the cover.
Lamentablemente Murray State tuvo el peor partido de la temporada cosas del deporte en el cual digo hay que contar con factor logica y suerte ayer ayer no lo fue Murray State se fue 20-62 (32 %) en tiros de campos en casa quien gana asi? bueno en esto se gana y se pierde seguimos...
**Michigan vs Indiana**
Para hoy en mis estadisticas y numeros me consigo con un juego en el cual la visita resulta ser un toro defensivo el 3ro de la nacion esto sumado a una mejor ofensiva y a ser un sembrado top 10 general diria que son puntos suficientes para que no sufran ante el local, por esta razon es mi juego y sin duda agarria los puntos antes de que suban, se puede jugar en moneyline para sus combinaciones, y aun mas importante en teaser.
Regretfully Murray State had the worst game of the season things of the sport in which I say you have to count on logical factor and luck yesterday was not it Murray State went 20-62 (32%) in shots of fields at home who wins ? good in this is won and lost we continue ...
** Michigan vs. Indiana **
For today in my statistics and numbers I get with a game in which the visit turns out to be a defensive bull the 3rd of the nation this added to a better offensive and to be a top 10 seeded general would say that they are enough points so that they do not suffer before the local, for this reason is my game and without doubt I grab the points before they go up, you can play in moneyline for your combinations, and even more important in teaser.
Going with Washington St. Cougars in this one. Even though Washington St has lost their last several games they are still putting up decent numbers. They are managing 71 points per game. In all actually, Colorado should be able to pull out the win as they have more depth and talent but they haven't been able to put together enough of a commanding offensive attack to get points on the board. I like Washington St to cover the double digit spread.
Cavs have lost 9 straight, and not games where its close. They've been beatdown. Five of those game were lost by 20 or more points. They are a hot f'ing mess. I think I'd go with N.O. even if this spread were 20.
Eastern Conference goes at it tonight! Both teams are hot right now and the first game they played this season came down to 1 lousy point in favor of the Pacers. That was over 2 months ago and the Celtics have a different look now, plus Smart, who was in a bit of a slump the last game is lighting up the boards now. This is the 2nd of a back to back series but I don't expect it to slow them down much. Pacers have won seven of their last eight games and just held the Cavaliers to 43 first half points. The Celtics will give them hell but I'm leaning on Pacers to cover tonight.
Texans looked really good on both sides of the ball against Tennessee last week, but this Browns team has looked great the last 2 weeks and keeps defying the oddsmakers. The edge for me goes to the Houston defense, they are going to give Baker his toughest test yet. My heart says Cleveland and the points but my wallet says Houstons -5.5.
I won't lay the chalk with a Ravens team that's lost their last 3 games and has an offense that has trouble scoring, even if they are playing the 31st ranked defense. Plus Flacco is likely out. Baltimore might get a little more credit in points because this is a home game but -6.5 line is a far stretch. Go hard on Bengals and take the points.
This is going to be one hell of a game. I'm taking the points here with the Chiefs. I just can't bet against Mahomes, Hill and Hunt. That's not to take anything away from Gurley. He's been amazing his season. He went off against Seattle with 120 yards. This game is basically a coin toss for straight up win so I'm going to take the points with the Chiefs. I may throw a little at the overs too.
