Monmouth vs. Rider Odds: Rickenbach betting the Broncs +5 on February 12th 2016

Betting Prediction: Rider +5 points -110 odds (February 12th 2016)

Scott ‘The Bulldog’ Rickenbach NCAAB *1* Free Pick on Rider Broncs +5 vs Monmouth @ 9 PM ET Friday – Oftentimes when something looks too good to be true it usually is and this is another classic example of that in this match-up on Friday. Monmouth is 20-5 on the season and yet only laying 5 points against a Rider team that has struggled to a 10-15 mark so far on the season. Looks easy, doesn’t it? The fact is that it is rarely ever that easy. Look for Monmouth to struggle to put the Broncs away here and Rider might even get the outright win in their upset bid. Home court means a lot in the MAAC and the Broncs have won 4 of the past 5 match-ups between these teams. The lone loss came by a single point and, hence, the line value with Rider in this spot. The Broncs are on a fantastic long-term run of 13-3 (81%) ATS as a home dog of 3.5 to 6 points. Monmouth has had a fantastic ATS season thusfar while Rider has struggled at the betting window. Of course that type of trend can’t go on forever and this road spot looks like the ideal spot to fade the Hawks. Monmouth, after game 15 of a season, has gone 9-15 ATS the past three seasons in their games against teams with a losing record. With tougher match-ups on the horizon (Manhattan and rival Iona), don’t be surprised if the Hawks get caught looking ahead here. Consider a small play on Rider +5 as it is my Free Pick for Friday. Best of luck, Scott

Penguins vs. Hurricanes Odds: Bob Harvey betting Pittsburgh -106 on February 12th 2016

PENGUINS VS. HURRICANES BETTINGPittsburgh Penguins vs. Carolina Hurricanes
NHL Betting Pick: Penguins -106 odds (February 12th 2016)

The Carolina Hurricanes begin a three-game homestand and a weekend of celebration when they host the Pittsburgh Penguins. The puck will drop at 7 PM at PNC Arena where the Penguins are -106 favorites with the total at 5. The Hurricanes, who are honoring the 10-year anniversary of the franchise’s lone Stanley Cup title, have won two of the three meetings this season.

The Penguins (27-19-4, 20-33 PL) have won seven of their last 10 games. They blanked the Hurricanes 5-0 on January 17 as Marc-Andre Fleury turned aside all 22 shots he faced. However Pittsburgh was on the wrong end of a shutout on Wednesday, dropping a 3-0 decision to the New York Rangers. Sidney Crosby didn’t record a shot on goal to end his 11-game point streak and the Penguins were shut out for the first time in 18 games. They were the league’s best team offensively from January 21-February 8, averaging 4.14 goals while winning six of seven games.

The Hurricanes (24-21-7, 35-19 PL) say high-scoring defenseman Justin Faulk is listed as questionable following an undisclosed injury suffered at practice. His 34 points lead Carolina and he’s second on the team with 15 goals behind Jeff Skinner who is riding on a five-game point streak (two goals, four assists).

The OVER is 1-0-3 in Carolina’s last four games vs. teams with a winning record and 1-0-3 against Metropolitan Conference opponents.

The UNDER is 3-1-2 in the last six meetings.

The home team has won four of the last five meetings.

Appalachian State vs. Texas State Basketball Odds: ASA Betting Texas State -4.5 on February 11th 2016


Appalachian State vs. Texas State
Betting Prediction: Texas State -4.5 points -110 odds (February 11th 2016)

Texas State is happy to be at home. They’ve spent much of the last 2 weeks on the road. After playing 4 consecutive road games, TSU finally was able to play at home last Saturday. The problem is, they played one of the top teams in the conference UT Arlington and lost by 12. Texas State showed us something in that game. They got down big trailing by 29 points in the 2nd half. However, they battled back and made it respectable showing us this is a gritty team. Now they get another shot at home against a team that is much more on their level. App State comes in with a 6-17 record and we’re guessing a different mindset. That’s because the Mountaineers lost both games of a 2 game homestand including an excruciating 1 point loss to La Monroe on Saturday. Now going on the road we think it will be tough for this team to rally. While App State will have problems focusing here, TSU will not. This is a revenger for them. They played one of their worst games of the season @ Appalachian State earlier this year and lost by 20. The Mountaineers shot a whopping 62% from inside the arc and 81% from the FT line in that game. The interesting thing is, TSU was actually favored by 3 in that game. Now they are laying just a point or two more at home in a great revenge spot. We’ll take Texas State here.

New Orleans vs. Oklahoma City NBA Odds: Harvey betting the under 220 points on February 11th 2016

PELICANS VS. THUNDER OVER-UNDER ODDSNew Orleans Pelicans vs. Oklahoma City Thunder
Over-Under Betting Pick: Under 220 points -110 odds (February 11th 2016)

The Oklahoma City Thunder go for their 16th win in the last 19 games when they host the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Pelicans (19-32, 21-30 ATS) are trying to stay relevant in regards to the postseason. They’ve posted back-to-back wins over Minnesota and Utah Jazz but remain six games out of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

As per norm, the high-scoring Thunder (39-14, 21-32 ATS) have been paced by All-Stars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. Durant has scored 20 or more points in 38 consecutive games and is averaging 36.3 points over the past three contests. Westbrook had 43 points, nine rebounds and eight assists when the Thunder recorded a 110-103 victory over the Pelicans on November 18. Oklahoma City ranks second in the NBA in scoring at 109.9 points per game and has topped 100 points in 22 of the past 23 games.

Oklahoma City is 24-5 SU at home with an ATS mark of 14-5 and an 18-11 to the UNDER on the home hardwood. New Orleans has a road record of 6-20 SU, 11-15-1 ATS and 19-6-1 to the UNDER.

The OVER is 4-1 in the last five meetings and 7-2 in the Oklahoma City’s last nine games overall. New Orleans is 10-2-1 to the OVER in the past 13.

The Pelicans are 5-1 ATS in the past six meetings and 6-2 in the last eight meetings in Oklahoma. However New Orleans is just 1-5 vs. the number in its last six games overall while OKC is 2-7 ATS in its past nine outings.

Green Bay vs. Detroit Basketball Over-Under Pick from Heath Mac: February 11th 2016

GREEN BAY VS. DETROITGreen Bay vs. Detroit
College Basketball Over-Under Pick: Over 186 points (February 11th 2016)

Here we have a perfect storm of absolutely terrible, barely existent defenses from both sides, combined with potent, high scoring, up and down offenses. As we will often go against the public (a solid long term strategy in itself) our first thought when looking at this ridiculously high total was to jump all over the UNDER. However on closer look, this game will see 200+ points with ease.

Both sides average over 84 ppg and allow over 81 ppg. These figures are impressive, but don’t look particularly remarkable, until you factor in the games both sides play against both lower scoring sides and also strong defensive sides. Last times these sides met, (just 2 weeks ago) saw a whopping 223 points in total, against a total of 181 points, so we’re a little surprised that it has only increased by 5 points for this rematch.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of Detroit’s last 7 games. The total has gone OVER in 6 of Detroit’s last 9 games at home. The total has gone OVER in 4 of Detroit’s last 5 games when playing Wisc-Green Bay and OVER in 4 of Detroit’s last 5 games when playing at home against Wisc-Green Bay.

For our free pick, take the OVER 186 points here and watch the points flow.

Iowa vs. Indiana Basketball Odds: Lundin betting the Hawkeyes +2 on February 11th 2016


Iowa Hawkeyes vs. Indiana Hoosiers
NCAA Basketball Prediction: Iowa +2 -110 odds (February 11th 2016)

This looks like a good spot to back the Iowa Hawkeyes on the road at Indiana Hoosiers Thursday night. Iowa is sitting top of the Big 10 standings and has won 12 of its last 13 games and three in a row. It’s 4-1 ATS in its last five overall and 9-2 ATS in its last 11 games against teams with winning records. The Hawkeyes’ won 77-63 at Indiana in the last meeting on March 3 last year to end a three-game skid in the series. They’ve covered the spread in 16 of the last 21 meetings overall and are 9-4 ATS in the last 13 meetings at Indiana. The Hoosiers were off a pair of wins before falling 68-63 at Penn State last Saturday, the same PSU team Iowa had pummeled 73-49 earlier in the week. Iowa has a better defense and a better bench, and I like the Hawkeyes in tonight’s Big 10 matchup.

Note that:

– Mike Lundin has lost back-to-back CBB plays, but he’s still on an INSANE 15-5 RUN with College Basketball picks.

Nebraska Cornhuskers vs. Wisconsin Badgers Basketball Betting Prediction: February 10th 2016


Nebraska Cornhuskers vs. Wisconsin Badgers
NCAA Basketball Prediction: Wisconsin -8.5 points -110 odds (February 10th 2016)

The coaching change a distant memory, Wisconsin is playing its best basketball these days. The Badgers check in off a double-digit win over Ohio State and with a 5-0 SU/ATS record over their past five games.

The Huskers are also off a big win. However, it was a costly one. Senior forward Shavon Shields suffered a concussion and won’t be at tonight’s game. He hasn’t even been able to attend classes this week and its been emotional for the entire team. Shields is both a skilled scorer and an inspirational leader. He’s started more than 100 consecutive games for this team; only five other players in school history can say that. I believe he’s going to be missed.

With an O/U line in the mid-high 130s, the pace figures to favor the Badgers. Nebraska is 8-18-1 ATS (5-22 SU) the last 27 times it played a road game with an O/U line in the 135 to 139.5 range. Wisconsin, on the other hand, is 18-8-1 ATS (25-2 SU) the last 27 times it played a home game with a total in the 135 to 139.5 range.

The Huskers won last season’s meeting here by 15 points. Given the way they’re playing right now and with Nebraska playing sans Shields, another double-digit win won’t surprise. Consider laying the points.

Wizards vs. Knicks NBA Over-Under Betting Prediction from Jamie Michaels: February 9th 2016

WIZARDS VS. KNICKS BETTINGWashington Wizards vs. New York Knicks
Betting Prediction: Under 207 points (February 9th 2016)

The New York Knicks (23-31) are on a downward spiral heading into the All-Star break this weekend on a 5-game losing streak with 9 losses in their last 10 games. They have managed to score an unimpressive 95.9 points per game during that stretch, and that’s including a 122-128 OT loss to OKC. So the news of HC Derek Fisher’s firing is really no surprise, but there is uncertainty surrounding his replacement. The Knicks host a Washington Wizards team (22-27) who hasn’t fared much better, having lost their last 6 of 8 games with an average score of 104 points per game, and that’s with a 121-134 loss to the up-tempo Golden State Warriors. Their first meeting back in October resulted in a 117-110 score in favor of the Knicks, but the game also produced an incredible 62 fouls, including 3 technicals, for a combined 54 free-throw points. Maybe less significant is the fact that Carmelo Anthony, who raked in 37 points that game, is coming in tonight nursing a sore leg, so I don’t expect the same level of performance from him. For the season, neither team is averaging more than 103 points per game, and unless this game goes to OT, I don’t see them getting to 207 tonight. Take the UNDER 207 for the free win!

Utah Jazz vs. Dallas Mavericks Point Spread Pick from Heath Mac: February 9th 2016

JAZZ VS. MAVERICKS BETTINGUtah Jazz vs. Dallas Mavericks
Point Spread Pick: Mavericks -1.5 points -110 odds (February 9th 2016)

The Mavs have had a tough run in their last few games, playing the Spurs, Heat and Hawks, all teams likely to feature deep into the play offs. Around those three losses, the Mavs beat the Suns and are coming off a solid road win over Memphis. The Mavs can put up points okay, but sometimes allow the better teams to put up too many points with an average defense. That shouldn’t be a problem here against a Jazz team that plays outstanding defense, but owns the 26th ranked offense and relies on grinding out games. Usually if a team only put up 84 and 85 points in back to back games, we would expect them to be losses. However this Jazz side won both those games last week over the Bucks and Nuggets.

Apart from their offense, if the Jazz have a glaring weakness, it is still that they struggle to win games on the road, where they are just 8-15 SU this season. The Mavs on the other hand have been superb on their home court with a 5-10 SU and 16-9 ATS record. Interestingly, the Mavs are 11-4 ATS at home against Western Conference sides as well, while the Jazz are 5-8 ATS on the road against the West, despite often getting a solid number of points start.

Utah is 3-10 SU in its last 13 games on the road. Utah is 3-8 ATS in its last 11 games on the road. Utah is 1-6-1 ATS in its last 8 games when playing Dallas. Utah is 1-9 SU in its last 10 games when playing Dallas. Utah is 0-5 SU in its last 5 games when playing on the road against Dallas. Dallas is 16-7-1 ATS in its last 24 games when playing at home against Utah. That’s a lot of trends that point to a Mavs win and cover here.

For our free pick, take the Mavs -1.5 points here.

Wichita State vs. Drake Odds: Will Rogers betting Drake +19 points on February 9th 2016

WICHITA STATE VS. DRAKEWichita State vs. Drake
Betting Pick: Drake +19 -110 odds (February 9th 2016)

The Wichita State Shockers are coming off a rare loss on the road at Illinois State, but they are coming into tonight’s game at Drake as an enormous favorite. The Bulldogs have lost 11 of their last 12, and one of those came at Wichita State. They lost that game by a whopping 20 points, but the Shockers are asked to win by just as great a margin here on the road. My money is on the home dog here, as I think this line looks a little inflated.

Here are my keys to the game:

1. Previous History – The Shockers have won four of their last five visits to Drake, but none of those wins were one-sided enough to cover tonight’s enormous number. If we look at both teams previous five games, the Bulldogs have actually shot for a higher percentage from beyond the arc, as well as from the free throw line.

2. Home Cookin’ – Drake has averaged slightly more points at home than the Shockers have scored on the road. They haven’t had as much success on defense, but they have only lost by more than 10 points once in their last five home games, winning one of those contests outright.

3. X-Factor – Ron Baker and Fred Van Fleet scored a total of 17 points on 5-of-21 shooting in the loss to Illinois State.

Selection: This is a play on the Drake Bulldogs (Free)
