T.M. Prediction: (Coming shortly)
|02-26-20||Furman v. NC-Greensboro -4.5||Top||81-67||Loss||-105||12 h 27 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: UNC Greensboro (10* TRADE-MARK).
This is a big game for both 23-6 teams. Both teams enter off victories as well. The bottom line is though is that I can't stress how important I feel that the home court advantage will be in this particular matchup. The Furman Paladins got destroyed by the Spartans 86-73 at home back January 11th and I expect an even bigger lop-sided blowout here. Sometimes the revenge angle works and other times it's completely overrated. I believe the latter is definitely the case in this one. Lay the points, but expect a big blowout!
T.M. Prediction: (75-60 UNC Greensboro).
|02-25-20||Drake v. Loyola-Chicago -7||60-64||Loss||-115||23 h 7 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Loyola Chicago (8* MONEY-MAKER).
This is a big game for both teams, but it's a revenge game for Loyola Chicago after it feel 65-62 at Drake back in early January. Drake comes in on terrible form as well, most recently falling 57-53 to lowly Illinois State. The Ramblers has won four in a row before a 72-64 loss to Missouri State in their latest action. Loyola Chicago has played well over the last month though and it sits with an 11-5 record in MVC play (compared to 8-8 for Drake.) The Ramblers are 6-1 ATS in their last seven at home, while the Bulldogs are 0-4 ATS in their last four following an ATS loss. The conditions all point to a home side blowout.
T.M. Prediction: 75-53 Ramblers.
|02-25-20||Missouri State v. Valparaiso -2||Top||74-89||Win||100||23 h 4 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Valparaiso (10* BEST OF THE BEST).
Missouri State is 14-15 and Valparaiso is 15-14. Both teams though come in having won three of their last four. Missouri State's only loss in that time though came against Bradley on the road, 83-79. The Crusaders though most recently come in off a win at home over Bradley, cruising to a 90-78 win. The Bears score 69.4 PPG and they allow 67.2, while the Crusaders average 72.3 PPG and allow 71.3. Valparaiso though is a near-perfect 6-1 ATS this year vs. teams with a road winning percentage of less than .400 and I expect that strong to get carried over here in this difficult road building. Lay the short points.
T.M. Prediction: 75-65 Valpo.
|02-24-20||Senators v. Blue Jackets -1.5||Top||3-4||Loss||-100||26 h 25 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Blue Jackets PUCK LINE (GAME OF MONTH 10*)
It's now or never for Columbus. The Blue Jackets need to turn things around immediately, or their playoff hopes are going to now be over quickly. Indeed, Columbus comes into this one having lost eight straight. The Senators are the perfect opponent to get untracked against though! Ottawa is a poor 3-8 (-4.4 units) this year already after playing three straight at home. The Blue Jackets?! Note that they're still 61-39 (+9 units) in their last 100 vs. clubs with losing records. I expect Columbus to finally show up tonight and to not only find a way to win this game, but to win convincingly.
T.M. Prediction: 5-2 Jackets.
|02-24-20||Louisville v. Florida State -2.5||Top||67-82||Win||100||25 h 14 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Florida State.
These are two of the top teams in the country, but bottom line is that I don't think we can overlook the home floor advantage as being a very real deciding factor in this particular matchup. Louisville comes in off a 72-55 win over UNC, but FSU is an entirely different animal, especially at home. And especially on the defensive side of the ball. FSU already smashed Louisville on its home court the last time these teams played and I expect a similar result here as well. This one has double-digit destruction written all over it in my professional opinion.
T.M. Prediction: 75-65 FSU.
|02-23-20||Blackhawks +1.5 v. Stars||Top||1-2||Win||100||21 h 39 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Blackhawks (10* PUCK-LINE PUNISHER).
In a game which I expect to be decided late or even in extra time or shootout, I'm going to lay the "pick em" price for the extra 1.5 goals of insurance. This is the third game of a four-game season series between the clubs. Last time out the Hawks won 3-0, ending a seven-game skid in the series. Interestingly Chicago is 8-4 (+4.5 units) in all "Sunday" games this year, while Dallas is just 1-5 (-5.8 units) in the same position.
T.M. Prediction: (3-2 Stars).
|02-23-20||Indiana State -3.5 v. Evansville||Top||64-62||Loss||-111||20 h 36 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Indiana State (10* MONEY-MAKER).
Indiana State ended a three-game slide with a big 67-64 win over Northern Iowa last time out, getting 18 points and seven boards form Jake Laravia. Evansville though is a complete disaster and I expect it to continue to struggle here, most recently coming off a listless 70-53 loss to Southern Illinois, its 15th setback in a row. The Sycamores need to keep the foot on the gas here and after beating the No. 1 team in the league, I don't think there's any reason not believe that they can't in fact do that. Evansville is just 5-15-1 ATS in its last 21 at home and I look for that record to get even worst after tonight. No trap here, look for Indiana State to instead take advantage!
T.M. Prediction: (76-60 Sycamores).
|02-22-20||Panthers v. Golden Knights -1.5||Top||3-5||Win||132||27 h 55 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Las Vegas (PUCK-LINE 10*).
Florida stinks on the road and I believe the Panthers will indeed struggle in this difficult venue, vs. this surging Knights team. THe Panthers are in poor form, just 3-6-1 in their last ten, while the Golden Knights are 7-2-1 in their last ten. Florida is 0-4 in its last four as an underdog as well. Look for Las Vegas to to up early and to win by a decisive margin after it's all said and done.
T.M. Prediction: 4-2 Vegas.
|02-22-20||76ers +8.5 v. Bucks||Top||98-119||Loss||-107||26 h 38 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Philadelphia 76ers (10* MONEY-MAKER).
There's no way that the 76ers are going to roll over here. Does Milwaukee have the motivaion to try and blow out its opponent today? I don't think so. This one has "battle" written all over it. 76ers' big man Joel Embiid had 39 points in a 112-104 win over the Nets last time out and I think he carries that momentum over. While the Bucks come in off a relatively simple 126-106 win over the Pistons in their latest outing, note that they're just 2-7 ATS this year off a win by ten points or more vs. a division rival. Let's grab up the points, but also not be shocked if the outright occurs either.
T.M. Prediction: 114-112 Bucks.
|02-22-20||Florida State -1 v. NC State||Top||67-61||Win||100||21 h 58 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Florida State (10* BANKROLL BUILDER).
North Carolina State admittedly comes in off an impressive 88-66 win over Duke last time out, but I think it's poised for a classic letdown here. FSU is 12-3 in ACC play after its 82-67 win over Pittsburgh. The Wolfpack are just 8-7 in league play. NC State lost to Boston College previous to this big upset last time out, so I'm not reading too much into this most recent result. FSU's size and depth will prove to be too much for the home side to keep pace with down the stretch.
T.M. Prediction: 76-70 FSU.
|02-22-20||North Carolina +9.5 v. Louisville||55-72||Loss||-115||21 h 50 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: North Carolina (8* MONEY-MAKER).
I simply feel that the home side is going to get caught looking past the putrid Tar Heels today. UNC won't be rolling over today though after starting February 0-6. The Tar Heels are always in contention with Cole Anthony in the line-up and now that he's had a couple games to get back up to speed, there's no reason not to think that the dynamic player can't lead his team to an outright upset here. Louisville snapped a rare two-game slide with a win over Syracuse in its latest action. UNC though is 4-0 ATS in its last four as a road dog and I expect it to fight tooth and nail until the final horn. As such, I'll ultimately recommend to grab as many points as you can.
T.M. Prediction: 73-72 Louisville.
|02-21-20||Grizzlies +11 v. Lakers||105-117||Loss||-110||25 h 27 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Memphis Grizzlies (8*).
Memphis lost 129-125 in Sacramento last night, but I think it can bounce back here and keep this one competitive. Mainly because I think the Lakers are going to come out slow after the All Star Break. LeBron James was kept busy throughout the festiviites and with the Celtics and Pelicans coming to town up next, I think the home side will classically get caught "looking ahead" as well. It all sets up nicely for a comfortable cover for the visitors.
T.M. Prediction: 117-114 Lakers.
|02-21-20||Pacers -5.5 v. Knicks||Top||106-98||Win||100||22 h 27 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Indiana Pacers 10* MONEY-MAKER.
The Knicks looked decent for about two weeks prior to the All Star break, but perhaps predictably they then fell apart in the final two games, lowing to the Hawks and the Wizards. Indiana won its final game over Milwaukee before the break. These teams have split two games this year, but New York won the most recent one. That sets this up as a revenge game for Victor Oladipo and the home side. The Knicks have failed to score 100 points in three of the last five in this head-to-head matchup and I think the home side once again strugglest.
T.M. Prediction: 111-100 Indiana.
|02-21-20||Princeton v. Harvard -7.5||Top||60-61||Loss||-108||22 h 51 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Harvard (10* IVY-LEAGUE).
The bottom line on this one is, I don't think you can overlooked the "home court advantage" as being a very real deciding factor in this particular matchup. Harvard won't be taking anything for granted here after the Tigers snuck by the Crimson 70-69 in Princeton on February 1st. Both teams come in off less that impressive wins, but in this big contest, where the winner will take over the No. 1 spot, I think the revenge minded home side gets the job done vs. a Tigers team which just gave up 88 points to Yale. Lay the points here.
T.M. Prediction: 80-62 Harvard.
|02-20-20||Maryland-Baltimore County +5 v. Albany||69-50||Win||100||2 h 33 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: UMBC
UMBC may come in with a worse record. They may be on the road. But, this team has the talent to upset this Albany team here today. Just like they did against Virginia. Take the Retrievers.
T.M. Prediction: 69-67 UMBC
|02-19-20||Wild +1.5 v. Canucks||4-3||Win||100||9 h 27 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Minnesota Wild (puck-line)
Minnesota has a great chance of winning this game but having an extra +1.5 insurance goals never hurts. Two of Minnesota's last 3 defeats were losses by 1 goal. Three of 5 games overall decided by 1 goal. Canucks off 5-1 loss and have now dropped 5 of 7. Minnesota's last game in Vancouver was a 3-2 win for the Wild. Deja Vu tonight.
T.M. Prediction: 3-2 Wild
|02-19-20||Islanders +1.5 v. Avalanche||1-3||Loss||-175||9 h 11 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Islanders (puck-line)
Colorado is tough but the Islanders are going to really want this game. They have only scored 1 goal in their last 3 games and will be ready to explode. Last 3 times these teams have played have all gone to the Islanders. Scores of 1-0, 4-3 and 4-1. The 4-1 win was here, in Denver. I have the Islanders winning another close one.
T.M. Prediction: 3-2 Isles.
|02-19-20||Michigan v. Rutgers -2.5||Top||60-52||Loss||-109||6 h 9 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Rutgers
The Wolverines have owned this matchup, winning all 12 games. That changes tonight. Wolverines are 1-5 ATS as road underdogs. Rutgers is 6-1 ATS When The Total Is 130 To 139.5. Knights are also a perfect 5-0 ATS As A Home Favorite Of 6 Points Or Less Or Pick. Knights haven't lost here all season. They'll stay perfect at home!
T.M. Prediction: 69-63 Rutgers
|02-19-20||Lokomotive Leipzig v. Tottenham Hotspur||Top||1-0||Loss||-100||2 h 7 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Tottenham Hotspur
Mourinho may not have enjoyed giving up 2 goals on the weekend but his team scored 3, a 3-2 win against Aston Villa. The Hotspur will keep rolling today. Former Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov said this of the Spurs: "Spurs aren't the favourites to win the Champions League, they weren't the favourites to reach the final last year, but now they have that Mourinho-factor. When he won it with Porto, they weren't the favourites but they lifted the trophy. He gives Spurs that extra bit in this competition, if he wins it with them he will go down into the Tottenham folklore. He is already one of the greats, nobody can take anything from him, if he wins the Champions League with Spurs he will have done it three times with different teams, and it is always good to do win a trophy with the underdogs, it's the best feeling."
T.M. Prediction: 3-1 Tottenham
|02-18-20||Ole Miss v. Missouri -1.5||Top||68-71||Win||100||8 h 51 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Missouri. These two teams are in the middle of the pack in the conference, but Missouri comes in off a bit 85-73 win over Auburn last time out and all signs point to this confidence and momentum carrying over into this one in front of the home town crowd. The Rebels on the other enter off a deflating 67-62 loss to Kentucky and I believe they have another letdown here as well. And that numbers/trends support my theory, as note that Ole Miss is just 4-5 ATS in its last nine as a road underdog or pick, while Missouri is a sharp 7-3 ATS in its last ten as a home favorite of three points or less. In this particular case, "home floor" means EVERYTHING! Lay the points. T.M. Prediction: 80-64 Missouri.
|02-17-20||Idaho v. Portland State -10.5||Top||69-90||Win||100||10 h 56 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Portland State
10* Portland State. Analysis to come.
T.M. Prediction: 82-65 Portland State
|02-17-20||North Carolina +4 v. Notre Dame||76-77||Win||100||7 h 56 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: UNC
The Tar Heels are better than their record. They also dominate the Irish every time the teams meet. UNC has won 7 straight meetings between the clubs. Heels haven't hit well as favorites but are 6-2 ATS as underdogs. Irish are 6-17 ATS last 23 after covering 2 of their last 3 against the spread. Will grab points but I've got the Heels winning this thing outright.
T.M. Prediction: 74-71 UNC
|02-16-20||Cincinnati v. East Carolina +11||Top||70-67||Win||100||4 h 40 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: EAST CAROLINA
Cincinnati was -17 here last season and East Carolina won the game. Did you know that Bearcats are 1-6 when the total is 140 to 149.5. Thats both SU and ATS. Pirates 8-3 ATS last 11 as a home underdog of 9.5 to 12 points. This game will be close. Grab points.
T.M. Prediction: 75-71 Cincinnati
|02-15-20||Gonzaga -15 v. Pepperdine||89-77||Loss||-104||12 h 12 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: GONZAGA
Bulldogs get underestimated nearly every year but they always turn out to be good. This year's team is a lot better than people realize and they will hammer the outclassed Waves. Gonzaga has been home team in last 4 meetings. Last time Pepperdine was home team, Gonzaga won by 30. The time before that, they won by 47!
T.M. Prediction: 91-70 Gonzaga
|02-15-20||Coastal Carolina v. Georgia State -8||80-92||Win||100||4 h 10 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: GEORGIA STATE
I have Georgia State pulling away and winning this thing by nearly 20. Coastal Carolina last 4 losses all came by double-digits. Losses of 10, 37, 17 and 20. Blowout time.
T.M. Prediction: 88-70 GEORGIA STATE
|02-15-20||Oklahoma +11.5 v. Kansas||70-87||Loss||-106||2 h 25 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: OKLAHOMA
Jayhawks are tough but the Sooners will keep this one closer than people and the oddsmakers think. Since previous meeting, OU has 5 wins and 3 losses. All 3 losses were by 8 or less. Take the points.
T.M. Prediction: 70-65 Kansas
|02-14-20||Yale -3.5 v. Princeton||Top||88-64||Win||100||8 h 35 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: YALE
The Bulldogs are the better team here but just because they're playing on the road we get them at a value price. This is been a great role for Yale. Bulldogs are 3-0 ATS as road favorites of 6 or less and 10-2 ATS last 12. Princeton 0-2 ATS as home underdogs of 3.5 to 6 points. Yale won here 81-59 last visit and that was expected to be a close game. Thats 4 straight in the series all the wins coming by at least 4. Go with the Bulldogs to take down the Tigers again tonight.
T.M. Prediction: 74-65 YALE
|02-13-20||Thunder v. Pelicans -2||Top||123-118||Loss||-109||9 h 49 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: NEW ORLEANS
OKC has won all 3 meetings this season. Those games were all B.Z. though. That's "before Zion." Williamson is now here and he's just getting better by the game. Wednesday he got 31 points, 9 boards and 5 assists. New Orleans smoked Portland 138-117. Thats 3 wins in a row. Off two losses in a row, the Thunders are going the other way. Pelicans 16-9-1 against the number their last 26, when off a home win. Revenge will be theirs.
T.M. Prediction: 117-108 New Orleans
|02-13-20||Old Dominion v. Rice||Top||73-70||Loss||-110||9 h 45 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: RICE
OK. This isn't the most exciting Thursday game. Doesn't matter to me. I just want winners! For this one, we essentially have no pointspread. ODU is 7-13 last 20 games and 1-8 SU its last nine on the road. Monarchs score 59.6 points per road game. The Owls score 81.6 points per game at home. Rice is starting to roll and is off 3 straight wins. They keep rolling for another day!
T.M. Prediction: 74-66 RICE
|02-12-20||Michigan -5.5 v. Northwestern||Top||79-54||Win||100||11 h 24 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: MICHIGAN
Wildcats may have homecourt advantage but the Wolverines have too many other advantages. Michigan is 16-1 SU its last 17 against a team with a losing record and that includes a 4-0 SU + ATS record last 4. Wildcats are in freefall and this is not the team to get better against. Last meeting? A 20-point win for the Wolverines. Sorry NW fans, this one will also turn ugly!
T.M. Prediction: 75-62 MICHIGAN
|02-12-20||Mercer v. Wofford -7.5||70-68||Loss||-109||9 h 24 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: WOFFORD
I have the Terriers winning this one by 15. Wofford won by 9 last meeting and that was at Mercer. Mercer lost its last 2 games by 13 and 22 points. Wofford is 3-0 (SU and ATS) off a loss against a conference rival. This one will be a wipeout!
T.M. Prediction: 75-61 WOFFORD
|02-11-20||Air Force v. Boise State -12||Top||57-74||Win||100||22 h 20 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Boise State
This is a huge mis-match, in everyones opinion. Air Force is a terrible 0-6 SU/ATS in their last 6 games this season. The Falcons are also a sad 0-5 in their last 5 games on the road. Even worse, they are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games against opponents from the Mountain West Conference (MVC.) For the Broncos, they have been dominant. Although they may have lost their previous match, they still bring in an underated 16-9 record. Not only that, but they have done an excellent job in covering the spread as well. Entering this game, Boise State is a perfect 10-0 SU in their last 10 games at home. They are also 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games against opponents in the Mountain West Conference. Enough said. Take the Broncos.
T.M. Prediction: 81-57 BSU
|02-10-20||Florida State +8.5 v. Duke||Top||65-70||Win||100||20 h 28 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Florida State
Both of these two teams have been excellent in the 2019-20 season. They are both at 20-3 and they are expected to do extremely well in March Madness. Florida State enters with a sweet 9-1 record in their last 10 games this season. The Seminoles are also 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games played in February. Even better, they are 13-1 in their last 14 games played. For Duke, they are only 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games. The Blue Devils are also a sad 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games played in February. The line is too large. Take Florida St and expect an easy cover.
T.M. Prediction: 86-83 FSU
|02-08-20||Grand Canyon v. California Baptist -6.5||Top||103-98||Loss||-106||11 h 38 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Cal Baptist
Cal Baptist over Grand Canyon? You might be thinking to yourself, what kind of GOTM play is that Tim? They can't all be Duke against Kansas though. If you can bet on it, I'm looking at it. The fact is, this one's a clear cut mismatch. This is Cal Baptist's second season in the Div 1. so they aren't eligible for the Tournament. Thats lucky for the other teams. Led by Milan Acquaah's 17.3 points-per-game, the Lancers have flat out been getting it done. They already beat the Antelopes at Phoenix and they complete the series sweep tonight!
T.M. Prediction: 78-61 Cal Baptist
|02-08-20||Nets +6 v. Raptors||Top||118-119||Win||100||8 h 12 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Brooklyn Nets
The Raptors just keep winning and winning. It ends today. You heard it right here. The Nets don;t have Kyrie or KD but they've got a big scheduling advantage. Toronto is 3-5 against the spread, 4 losses outright, In A Home Game Where The Total Is Greater Than Or Equal To 220.
T.M. Prediction: 107-106 Nets
|02-08-20||Coyotes v. Bruins -1.5||Top||2-4||Win||132||14 h 49 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Boston Bruins -1.5
This one has all the ingredients of a multi-goal win for the B's. Vastly superior team. Playing better currently, on both sides of the puck. At home. A nice plus-money payout for the big win.
T.M. Prediction: 4-1 Bruins
|02-08-20||DePaul v. Georgetown -4||Top||72-76||Push||0||11 h 47 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Georgetown
The Georgetown Hoyas may not be doing so well as of late, but they can still win at home. Coming into today's game against DePaul, the Hoyas are 12-6 SU in their last 18 games at home. Georgetown is also 7-3 in their last ten meetings against the Blue Demons. On the other hand, DePaul is a terrible 0-5 SU in their last 5 games. DePaul is also 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games played in February. Even worse, they are 1-9 in their last 10 games this season. At home, expect an easy Georgetown win.
T.M. Prediction: 76-64 Georgetown
|02-07-20||Iona v. Quinnipiac -5||Top||73-52||Loss||-109||9 h 3 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Quinnipiac
Quinnipiac is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games at home. They are also a dominant 6-1 SU in their last 7 games played on a Friday. On the other hand, Iona is a terrible 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games on the road. Iona is also only 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 games. Expect a crushing performance by the home team in this one. Take Quinnipiac.
T.M. Prediction: 78-51 Quinnipiac
|02-05-20||East Tennessee State -5 v. Chattanooga||Top||80-64||Win||100||20 h 13 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: East Tennessee St
Coming into this game, East Tennessee State has been red hot. They ae now e 6-1 in their last 7 games after last games' blowout. East Tennessee State is also a perfect 9-0 (7-2 ATS) in their last 9 games against Chattanooga. For the Mocs, they are off a tough loss last time out, against Western Carolina. That makes them only 2-3 in their last 5 games this season. The Buccaneers may be on the road, but expect them to be the much better team in this one. Take ETSU.
T.M. Prediction: 78-61 ETSU
|02-02-20||49ers v. Chiefs||Top||20-31||Win||100||19 h 14 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Kansas City Chiefs
Most can agree that the Chiefs have the better offense and that the 49ers have the better defense. More often than not, that'll find me on the side of the better defense. The Chiefs offense is "MUCH" better than the 49ers offense though and the SF defense is only "better" than the KC defense. No team can stop the Chiefs. They score 27 or more every game. The 49ers can be slowed though. The last time they faced an AFC team they only scored 17 points! At the end of the day, Mahomes will be the better QB and the Chiefs will be the better team.
T.M. Prediction: 27-20 Chiefs
|02-01-20||Bradley v. Loyola-Chicago -5.5||Top||51-62||Win||100||21 h 5 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Loyola Chicago
These two teams may not look too different, but I see a huge skill gap between each other. Loyola Chicago is 9-4 SU in their last 13 games against opponents in the Missouri Valley Conference. The Ramblers are also 11-4 in their last 15 games. For Bradley, they are a sad 2-7 SU in their last 9 games on the road. Even worse, the Braves are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games when playing on the road against Loyola-Chicago. At home, expect an easy Ramblers win.
T.M. Prediction: 76-51 Ramblers
|02-01-20||Xavier +8.5 v. Seton Hall||74-62||Win||100||12 h 24 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Xavier
When a team is on the road against a ranked opponent, most would think a destruction. Not this time. Xavier is holding opponents to only 67.9 ppg while giving up a less than 30% three ball. That's great defense! Now, they might not win outright, but expect a very close game.
T.M. Prediction: 68-67 Seton Hall
|01-31-20||Blazers +13 v. Lakers||Top||127-119||Win||100||12 h 19 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Portland Trail Blazers
In their first game back since the tragic accident, its hard for anyone to know exactly how the Lakers will respond to the devastating loss of Kobe Bryant. We do know how the Trail Blazers have reacted though. By playing their best basketball of the season! They're off back to back big wins against the Pacers and Rockets. Dame is doing it all and dropped a triple-double on Houston, after going over 50 in his previous three. Did you know that Portand is a PERFECT 7-0 against the pointspread, with one push, the last 3 years, when coming off 2 Consecutive Home Wins By 10 Points Or More.
T.M. Prediction: 119-117 Lakers
|01-31-20||Capitals -1.5 v. Senators||Top||5-3||Win||130||9 h 7 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Capitals -1.5
This is an obvious mismatch. The Capitals lead the entire NHL with 73 points. The Senators are near the bottom with 45. The Capitals score about a goal more per game and they allow less too. In 51 games, they have 185 goals, a +34 goal differential. Ottawa has 138 goals and a -31 goal differential. Last two games between these teams have had scores of 6-1 and 7-2, both in favor of Washington.
T.M. Prediction: 6-1 Capitals
|01-31-20||Columbia v. Yale -14||62-93||Win||100||7 h 40 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Yale
This is an obvious mismatch. I have the Bulldogs winning by 24. Yale is 14-4. Columbia is 6-12. The Lions upset the Bulldogs last March. It won't happen again! Lay the number and relax.
T.M. Prediction: 79-55 Yale
|01-29-20||San Jose State v. Boise State -15.5||Top||71-99||Win||100||11 h 59 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Boise State
If you don't think that the Broncos can beat this team by more than 15, you should probably study up on your history books. Last year, Boise State won 87-64 at San Jose and 105-57 here at Boise! Thats a 48 point destruction in a game they were favored by 19! The year before the Broncos won by 23 here. Simply put, SJ State stinks. Last time Spartans were on the road they lost by 27, an 86-59 beatdown. As Boise has been dominant at home, you can expect to see a similar score tonight
T.M. PREDICTION 89-65 Boise State
|01-28-20||Auburn -5 v. Ole Miss||Top||83-82||Loss||-105||8 h 27 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Auburn
I have the Tigers winning this one by a dozen which makes a line of -5 look awful good. Ya, the Rebels have homecourt advantage. That just keeps the line down though. There's a big talent difference here. The Tigers are 17-2 though and Ole Miss is 10-9. The Tigers remember getting swept by this team last year and that included an upset at Auburn. Tonight they turn the tables.
T.M. PREDICTION 77-65 Auburn
|01-28-20||Senators +1.5 v. Sabres||Top||5-2||Win||100||7 h 37 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: OTTAWA +1.5 goals
Conventional wisdom tells us that the Sabres will have the advantage due to the fact that the Senators played last night. Conventional wisdom doesnt apply right after the All Star Break though. The Sabres long layoff leads to rust. The Senators second game in two nights isnt too bad after the long break, arguably even a good thing. Ottawa won 3-1 last meeting. Another upset wont surprise.
T.M. PREDICTION 4-3 OTTAWA

T.M. Selection: Brooklyn Nets
Sure, the Nets went to OT yesterday. They're still the better team though and we're getting them as an underdog. The Knicks are 1-10 in division games. The Knicks are also 1-8 after covering 4 or 5 of their last 6. The Nets already won here earlier and consider MSG a home away from home. They'll make it their home today.
T.M. Prediction: 113-102 Nets

The Golden Bears are 6-3 vs. the number L2 years when playing with 5 or 6 day's rest in between games. The Cardinal are 2-4 vs. the number when playing with 7 or more day's rest. Recent games between these teams here in Berkeley have been very close. Cal has won 2 of L4 meetings here and lost the other 2 by 3 and 4 points. This one comes down to the final buzzer.
T.M. Prediction: 77-76 Cal

T.M. Selection: Drake
Entering this game, Missouri State is only 1-5 SU in their last 6 games against Drake (0-6 ATS.) They are also a sad 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games when playing on the road against Drake. For the Bulldogs, they are a perfect 10-0 SU in their last 10 games at home. Drake is also 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games played in January. Take Drake on Sunday.
T.M. Prediction: 74-63 Drake
|01-25-20||George Mason v. Davidson -7||53-68||Win||100||6 h 38 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Davidson
George Mason may have the better record, but I believe that Davidson is by far the more superior side here. George Mason is only 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games against opponents in the Atlantic 10 Conference. They are also a sad 2-5 SU in their last 7 games against Davidson. For the Wilcats, they are 17-3 SU in their last 20 games at home. Davidson is also 10-4 in their last 14 games played in the month of January. Davidson is at home, and I believe that, that will help big time here. Take the favorite.
T.M. Prediction: 82-67 Davidson

T.M. Selection: Texas A&M Aggies
Texas A&M may come in as the underdog, but I believe that they will find a way to crush the Cowboys here on Saturday. Coming into this game, Texas A&M is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games against opponents in the Big 12 Conference. The Aggies are also a dominant 6-1 SU in their last 7 games when playing at home against Oklahoma State. For the Cowboys, they are only 0-5 ATS (0-5 SU as well) in their last 5 games this season. At home, give me Texas A&M all day.

T.M. Selection: Buffalo Bulls
The Buffalo Bulls and the Kent State Golden Flashes both come in with identical 13-6 records. Although their records may look the same, I believe that Buffalo is by far the more superior side in this one. Entering this game, the Bulls are a dominant 17-3 SU in their last 20 games at home. Buffalo is also 4-1 in their last 5 games. Even better, they are a sweet 5-1 SU in their last 6 games when playing at home against Kent State. For the Golden Flashes, they are only 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games played on the road (2-5 ATS L7.) Kent St is also a sad 4-12 ATS in their last 16 games against Buffalo. At home, I expect the Buffalo Bulls to dominate this Kent St team with ease on Friday.

T.M. Selection: Miami Fl
Duke may be the better team, but if you're going to give me 17.5 to a team that almost beat a top 10 opponent last time out, I'm jumping all over that. Duke is only 14-20 after having won 12 or more of their last 15 games the past 3 years. On the other hand, the Hurricanes are 3-1 off a loss against a conference rival. Miami FL is also a perfect 2-0 this season after 2 or more consecutive losses. Expect an easy cover on Tuesday.
T.M. Prediction: 79-75 Duke
|01-19-20||Packers +9.5 v. 49ers||Top||20-37||Loss||-125||5 h 57 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Green Bay Packers
Green Bay comes into this game with a perfect 6-0 SU in their last 6 games against opponents in the NFC Conference. The Packers are also 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games played in January. Even better, they are a perfect 6-0 in their last 6 games. San Fran on the other hand isn't that strong on the offensive side of the ball. Jimmy G has looked good at times, but under pressure, he looks shaky and a bit off. Now they'll play a Packers team that just are better overall. Aaron Rodgers coming back home, give me the Green Bay Packers all day.
T.M. Prediction: 21-20 Packers
|01-19-20||Loyola-Chicago -3.5 v. Illinois State||Top||62-50||Win||100||4 h 49 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Loyola-Chicago
I recently won with Loyola-Chicago on Thursday against Southern Illinois. Now, I like them even better as they play another weak team in Illinois State. The Ramblers come into this game 9-2 SU in their last 11 games. LOYCH is also 13-7 ATS in their last 20 games played in January. Even better, they are a dominant 4-1 SU in their last 5 games against Illinois State. For the Redbirds, they are only 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games (1-7 L8.) They are also a terrible and when I say terrible, I mean absolutely terrible 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games against opponents in the Missouri Valley Conference. Expect another huge win for the Ramblers on Sunday Afternoon.
T.M. Prediction: 76-54 Ramblers
|01-19-20||Titans +7.5 v. Chiefs||Top||24-35||Loss||-120||3 h 59 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Tennessee Titans
Derrick Henry is going to eat this lousy run defense alive on Sunday Afternoon. Coming into this game, Tennessee are a perfect 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games on the road. The Titans are also 4-1 SU in their last 5 games against Kansas City. Even better, they are a ridiculous 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games when playing on the road against Kansas City. For the Chiefs, they are only 4-14 in playoff games since 1992. Kansas City is also a sad 1-4 after covering the spread in 8 or more of their last 10 games. Tennessee might not win this game, but I believe that they'll keep it very close throghout the entire game. Take the Titans.
T.M. Prediction: 31-30 KC

T.M. Selection: Chicago Blackhawks (+1.5)
The Blackhawks may be the underdog. They may be on the road. And they may be back in the standings a bit. But, I believe that they will find a way to grab the win here on Saturday. Chicago is 6-1 SU in their last 7 games on the road. They are also a sweet 7-3 in their last 10 games on the road against the Maple Leafs. For Toronto, they arfe only 5-15 in their last 20 games against the Blackhawks. They are also only 1-4 in their last 4 games this season. Give me +1.5 goals -130 anyday. Take the Blackhawks.
T.M. Prediction: 4-2 Blackhawks

I believe that their is a huge gap between the skill of these two teams. Florida International is 9-3 SU in their last 12 games. The Panthers also are a dominant 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games against Middle Tennessee. Even better, FIU has won 10 straight games when playing at home. For the Blue Raiders, they are only 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games. They are also a terrible 0-6 SU in their last 6 games on the road and they are 0-9 in their last 9 games. I smell blowout in this one as FIU wins by 23.
T.M. Prediction: 83-60 FIU
|01-15-20||Blackhawks +1.5 v. Canadiens||Top||4-1||Win||100||7 h 11 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Chicago Blackhawks
I know that Montreal is at home. I know that they are the favorite. And I know that most people like the Canadiens here, but I'm calling for an upset here today. The Blackhawks are 5-1 in their last 6 games on the road. They are also a dominant 9-2 in their last 11 games against Montreal. Even better, they are a perfect 5-0 in their last 5 games when playing on the road against Montreal. For Montreal, they may be off two straight wins, but they are still a sad 2-8 in their last 10 games. The Canadiens are also only 1-4 in their last 5 games against an opponent in the Central Division of the Western Conference. Expect the Blackhawks to shock the home crowd here tonight. I think that they are going to win outright, but I'm glad to take the points here.
T.M. Prediction: 3-2 Blackhawks

Even better, they are a perfect 5-0 in their last 5 games played in January. For UMASS, they are only 3-11 SU in their last 14 games played on a Wednesday. The Minutemen are also 2-14 SU in their last 16 games played in January. Even worse, they are a terrible 0-7 in their last 7 games against the Bonnies. At home, expect a blowout.

|01-14-20||Jazz v. Nets +3||Top||118-107||Loss||-110||9 h 11 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Brooklyn Nets
With Kyrie Irving back and healthy, the Brooklyn Nets will be tough to play against, especially at home. Coming into this game Brooklyn is 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games at home. The Nets are also off back-to-back wins which could help provide a confidence boost here tonight. Now, there isn't much bad to say about the Jazz. Even though they have won nine straight games, 1-4 ATS against Atlantic division opponents this season. Utah is also only 0-4 ATS off 9 consecutive wins the past three seasons. Expect a hard fought game, but for Brooklyn to pull away late. Take the Nets.
T.M. Prediction: 117-112 Nets

T.M. Selection: Toledo
Both of these two teams may have identical records, but I believe that the Rockets are the better team. Toledo comes into this game with a massive 9-1 record in their last 10 games at home. Toledo is also 8-4 ATS off a home non-cover where the team won straight up as a favorite the past three years. Even better, they are 7-3 ATS ehrn against good offensive teams - scoring 77+ points/game after 15+ games. For the Chippewas, they are only 0-8 SU in their last 8 games on the road. Central Michigan is also a terrible 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games against Toledo. Expect an easy cover for the home team here. Take the Toledo Rockets.
T.M. Prediction: 76-49 Toledo
|01-13-20||Clemson v. LSU -5||25-42||Win||100||10 h 53 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: LSU (1st Half)
Two very talented teams will meet head-to-head in the National Championship Game on Monday Night. Both sides have looked outstanding all season long, but I believe that the LSU Tigers are just a little bit better. In the Semifinals, QB Joe Burrow threw for a ridiculous amount of touchdowns (7.) That's insane for an entire game! But he did it in just a single half. On the other hand, Clemson played in a very tough game that came down to the wire against OSU. Clemson is just 3-5 ATS after 5 or more consecutive wins against the spread since 1992. Expect LSU to win here.
T.M. Prediction: 27-17 (1st Half)
|01-12-20||Seahawks +4.5 v. Packers||Top||23-28||Loss||-109||7 h 1 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Seattle Seahawks
I'm calling for an upset on Sunday Night between the Seattle Seahawks and the Green Bay Packers. I believe that when healthy, Seattle has a Super Bowl caliber team that is very strong in almost every position. Led by Russell Wilson, the Seahawks come into this game with a massive 8-1 SU in their last 9 games on the road. They are also 7-3 in their last 10 games this season. On the other hand, Green Bay has also been pretty good. They may have a great record, but they are still only 6-10 ATS the past three seasons after covering the spread in 2 out of their last 3 games. The Packers are also a sad 1-8 ATS off a road win the past three seasons (1-4 this year.) I expect a similar game to the one in 2015 when the Hawks pulled off the miracle their. It happened then and it's gonna happen again. Take Seattle.
T.M. Prediction: 31-28 Seahawks
|01-12-20||Canisius v. St. Peter's -2.5||Top||72-68||Loss||-110||1 h 20 m||Show|

Both of these two teams sit with a record below .500. But, even with a 5-7 record, the Saint Peter's Peacocks are still a dominant 9-3 ATS this season. Saint Peter's also come into this game with a 6-3 SU record in their last 9 games against opponents in the Metro Atlantic Conference. On the other hand, Canisius are a terrible 0-6 in their last 6 games this seaaon. The Golden Griffins are also only 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games against opponents in the MAC. Even worse, they are a sad 0-5 in their last 5 games played on the road. With St Peter's at home, expect the Peacocks to win with ease on Sunday. Take SPC

I know that the Ravens are good. Really good. But, the Tennessee Titans come into this game off a huge win, to kill the hopes of Tom Brady and the Patriots last week. The Titans are a dominant 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games against opponents in the AFC Conference. They are also 5-2 SU in their last 7 games against opponents in the AFC North Division. Even better, Tennessee is 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games this season. For the Ravens, they are only 17-23 ATS in their last 40 games after 3 or more consecutive wins against the spread. Once again, the Ravens are great, but 10 points is a lot in a huge playoff game like this. Expect a highly-contested, close game on Saturday Night.
T.M. Prediction: 34-31 Ravens

On Saturday, both teams will battle to see who's the better team in Wisconsin. Neither team has played too well, but their whole seasons could flip around, with a huge win today, Wisconsin-Milwaukee is only 1-9-1 ATS in their last 11 games this season. They are also a sad 1-7 SU in their last 8 games against Wisconsin-Green Bay. Even worse, they are a terrible 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games played on a Saturday. For Green Bay, they are a perfect 5-0 SU in their last 5 games when playing at home against Wisconsin-Milwaukee. The Phoenix are also 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games. Take Wis-GB here.

Neither team has has a great start, but I belive that the Lumberjacks are a lot better than this Idaho St team. Northern Arizona comes into this one 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games. They are also 4-1 in their last 5 games at home. Even better, they are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games played on a Saturday. On the other hand, the Bengals are only 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games against opponents in the Big Sky Conference. Idaho St have also lost 5 straight games on the road. It can't get much worse than that. But, they are an awful 0-7 SU in their last 7 games played in January. At home, expect Northern Arizona to kill Idaho St

T.M. Selection: Eastern Kentucky
Neither team has started too well to the 2019-20 campaign. They both enter well under .500 and that has made people think that both cannot make the Big Dance. But, with a win here, I believe that Eastern Kentucky's hopes are still alive. EKU is 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games against opponents in the Ohio Valley Conference. On the other hand, SIU Edwardsville are only 2-4 SU in their last 6 games when playing on the road against Eastern Kentucky. Take EKU at home on Saturday,

The Tigers are also a dominant 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games against opponents in the Southeastern Conference (SEC.) In the past, LSU is 14-3 SU in their last 17 games when playing at home against Arkansas. For the Razorbacks, they are only 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games. Even worse, they are a sad 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games against opponents in the Southeastern Conference. Expect LSU to destroy Arkansas at home on Wednesday. Take the Tigers

On the other hand, Miami (OH) is 0-2 this season as an underdog of 10.5 to 21 points (0-4 L3 years.) They are also only 2-10 in non-conference games the past three years.

They are also 7-4 after a cover as a double digit favorite. Even better, FSU is a perfect 5-0 SU in their last 5 games played on a Saturday.

Nevada is now 12-6 SU in their last 18 games dating back to last season. Even better, they are an 80% 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games played on a Friday. For Ohio, they come inot this game with a 6-6 record. They have a sad 3-6 ATS record in their last 9 games this season (4-8 ATS L12 games.) The Bobcats have had an up-and-down season and you never know what they are going to do. Also, they are only 0-3 as a favorite of in between 3.5-10 points this year. Expect the Wolfpack to not only keep it close, but to come away with the upset victory in the 2020 Idaho Potato Bowl. Take Nevada.
T.M. Prediction: 31-30 Nevada
|01-02-20||Boston College v. Cincinnati -7.5||Top||6-38||Win||100||15 h 44 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Cinci
The Bearcats have been winning all season long, and that is why they are here today as the #21 ranked team in the nation. They may be off back-to-back losses, but they still come in with a dominant 10-3 record. Cincinnati is 9-2 SU in their last 11 games this season. They are also 5-1 after playing their last game on the road. Even better, they are a perfect 19-0 SU in their last 19 games when playing as the favourite. For, Boston College, they barely even got into a bowl. With a 6-6 record they are lucky to even be here today. The Eagles are 0-3 ATS in their last three games off an upset win over a conference rival as an underdog this season. They are also 3-5 ATS off a road win win the past three seasons. The Bearcats are by far the better side in this one. With Boston College allowing 31+ points per game, expect Cincinnati to eat this weak Eagles program alive in the Birmingham Bowl. Take the Bearcats.
T.M. Prediction: 31-10 Cincinnati
|01-01-20||Blazers -4 v. Knicks||Top||93-117||Loss||-109||17 h 27 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Portland Trail Blazers
Portland may be having an "off season" so far, but in my opinion, they still have an excellent team that will be in the playoff hunt come time. The Trail Blazers are 6-1 in their last 7 games when they are playing on the road against New York. They are also a dominant 10-4 SU in their last 14 games against opponents in the Atlantic Division. For the Knicks, they are only 4-12 ATS in their last 16 games played on a Wednesday. NY is also a terrible 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games against opponents in the Northwest Division. I mean c'mon. This is one of the worst teams in the NBA. To be only favored by 3.5. That's awful. Blazers win big on New Year's, to prove the haters wrong.
T.M. Prediction: 111-86 Trail Blazers
|01-01-20||Minnesota +7.5 v. Auburn||Top||31-24||Win||100||11 h 48 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Minnesota
Two extremely talented schools will go head-to-head in the Outback Bowl on Wednesday. Dating back to last season, the Gophers are 12-2 SU in their last 14 games. They are also 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 games. On the other hand, Auburn has been great too. Although they have a 9-3 record, they have not played too well when they are off a home win against a Conference Rival. In those game the oast three years, the Tigers are a sad 0-7 ATS (0-2 this season.) Auburn is also only 5-11 off a home win the past three years. A full touchdown for the team with the better record? Give me Minnesota any day.
T.M. Prediction: 21-17 Min
|12-30-19||Pistons +9.5 v. Jazz||Top||81-104||Loss||-101||23 h 48 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Detroit Pistons
The Pistons haven't had the start they were hoping for, but I believe they have the team to compete come playoff time. Coming into this game against the Jazz, Detroit are 4-2 off a blowout loss of 15 points or more this season. For Utah, they are 5-10 after playing on the road in their previous game ytd. The Jazz are also a terrible 0-5 off a win by 10+ points this season. With Andre Drummond and Blake Griffin leading the way, I expect the Pistons to keep it close here. Take Detroit.
T.M. Prediction: 111-108 Jazz
|12-30-19||Virginia +14.5 v. Florida||Top||28-36||Win||100||22 h 56 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Virginia
Florida comes into the Orange Bowl with a 10-2 record. Although they have a great record, they haven't really looked extremely strong. The Gators are only 1-5 in games played on a neutral field the past three years (0-2 this season.) They are also 2-4 off a bye week. For UVA, they enter with a 9-4 record. They've looked very good, and confedent. The Cavaliers did get hammered against Clemson, but coach Bronco Mendenhall has high-hopes for this game. He said, "This is a giant opportunity for us. This game means the world to us in terms of growth and in terms of taking the next step for our program." I expect Virginia to give all they have on Monday Night while they try and pull off the upset. 14.5 points is a lot, give me UVA any day.
T.M. Prediction: 31-28 Florida
|12-30-19||Louisiana Tech -7 v. Southern Miss||Top||80-49||Win||100||22 h 44 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Louisiana Tech
There is a gigantic gap of skill between these two schools. Louisiana Tech comes in as the leader in the Conference USA. They are a dominant 5-1 SU in their last 6 games this season. The Bulldogs are also 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games when playing on the road against the Golden Eagles. Even better they are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games against Southern Mississippi. For the Eagles, they come in as the 13th best team in the same conference. They have struggled all season long and that has resulted in a terrible record. Southern Miss is only 3-9 SU in their last 12 games. I expect the Bulldog to destroy these guys on Monday. Take LT.
T.M. Prediction: 83-59 LT
|12-30-19||Western Michigan v. Western Kentucky -3||20-23||Push||0||14 h 17 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Western Kentucky
Off a great 8-4 season, the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers will look to grab their fourth bowl win here. Western Kentucky is 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games this season. The Hilltoppers are also a perfect 6-0 SU in their last 6 games against opponents in the Mid-American Conference. For Western Michigan, they have had no success what-so-ever when it comes to bowls. In the past, the Broncos have played in 11 bowl games in their program's history and are only 1-10 SU in those games. Western Michigan is also 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games played in December. I expect the Hilltoppers to get the job done with ease on Monday Afternoon in the First Resonders Bowl in Dallas, Texas. Take WKU.
T.M. Prediction: 31-17 WKU
|12-29-19||49ers v. Seahawks +3.5||Top||26-21||Loss||-119||21 h 31 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Seattle Seahawks
This is one of the biggest games of the entire year, if not the biggest. The Seahawks come into this one with an 11-4 record, while San Fran is 12-3. Seattle has already beaten the 49ers this season, in San Fran. Now, they'll be back with some of the loudest fans in the NFL. But this time, the Seattle Seahawks are bringing back "BEAST-MODE" (Marshawn Lynch) to the team. He's going to provide a huge spark for the team and it should help them bring home the victory and the Division Championship. Time for Marshawn to do his thing and dominate. Take the Seahawks.
T.M. Prediction: 34-27 Hawks
|12-29-19||Colts v. Jaguars +6||20-38||Win||100||17 h 37 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Jacksonville
With both teams out of playoff contention, I wouldn't be surprised if some of the players will be rested in this game. Indianapolis comes into this game with a sad 2-4 ATS record in their last 6 games against opponents from the AFC Conference. The Colts are also only 1-7-1 ATS in their last 9 games against Jacksonville. For the Jaguars, they are 7-4 when they are revenging a road loss against an opponent. I expect the Jaguars to close off the season with an easy victory on Sunday Afternoon. Take the Jags.
T.M. Prediction: 31-10 Jaguars
|12-29-19||Browns -2.5 v. Bengals||23-33||Loss||-112||13 h 13 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Cleveland Brown
The Browns might have been the most disappointing team of the entire year. Everyone thought they were going to be very good, but in the end, it just wasn't their season. Although having a rough season, Cleveland is still 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games against opponents in the AFC North Division. On the other hand, the Bengals have literally been awful. They come into week 17 with a terrible 1-14 record. Earlier this month, the Browns beat the Bengals 27-19. Expect another win for the Cleveland Browns as they look to end the season on a good note. Take the Browns.
T.M. Prediction: 38-21 Browns
|12-28-19||Pistons v. Spurs -4.5||Top||109-136||Win||100||30 h 50 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: San Antonio Spurs
Neither team has started this season with a great record, but there is still time to improve. Detroit comes off a huge win over the Wizards on Wednesday. Even though they won that game, they are still only 1-5 SU/ATS in their last 6 games. The Pistons are also only 2-8 in their last 10 games against San Antonio. For the Spurs, they are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games this season. Demar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge lead the way for them. In a big gaem, I trust the better team to get the job done. Take the Spurs.
T.M. Prediction: 114-103 Spurs
|12-28-19||Oklahoma +14 v. LSU||Top||28-63||Loss||-110||19 h 32 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Oklahoma
In the Peach Bowl, the Oklahoma Sooners are up against the #1 team in the nation in LSU. Other than one game the entire season, the Sooners have absolutely dominated their opponents. They are led by star QB Jalen Hurts who has led them to a near-perfect season. Oklahoma comes into this game with a sweet 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games against opponents in the Southeast Conference (SEC.) For LSU, they might be the best team in the country, but they have yet to face a team like Oklahoma. OU can put up points with ease and I expect LSU to have a bit of difficulty keeping up with them. The line is big, and I like the Sooners to keep it close in this one. Take Oklahoma.
T.M. Prediction: 43J-41 LSU
|12-28-19||Wisc-Milwaukee v. Northern Kentucky -7.5||Top||64-74||Win||100||15 h 9 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Northern Kentucky
Wis-Milwaukee enters this game with a 5-7 record. They havce yet to do anything really, and they have lost their last five games. The Panthers are also a terrible 0-6 SU in their last 6 games against Northern Kentucky. For NKU, they are a dominant 18-2 in their L20 games at home. The Norse are also 13-5 in their L18 games dating back to last season. Even better, they are a perfect 5-0 SU in their last 5 games against opponents in the Horizon League Conference. I expect this to be a complete destruction on Saturday Morning. Take NKU.
T.M. Prediction: 78-62 NKU
|12-27-19||Bucks v. Hawks +12||Top||112-86||Loss||-115||6 h 42 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Atlanta Hawks
Atlanta may be bad, I mean really bad, but I expect them to cover with ease here. Trae Young has had an unbelievable season even with his team losing. He has now scored at least 30 points in each of their last five games. Trae also has PF John Collins to pair with him. That man kills weak defense. For Milwaukee, they'll be without Giannis Antetokounmpo and Eric Bledsoe. They may have the best record in the entire league, but without those guys, 12 points is a lot to win by. Off 8 straight losses, Atlanta is due for a big performance here against a Bucks team full with injuries. Expect a close game on Friday Night.
T.M. Prediction: 115-114 Bucks
|12-26-19||Pittsburgh v. Eastern Michigan +13||Top||34-30||Win||100||8 h 12 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: EMU
Both of these two teams narrowly got into this bowl. Pitt finished with 7 wins, while EMU ended up with 6. Pittsburgh comes into this game with a sad 1-4 SU in their last 5 games played in December. They also come in off 2 straight losses. On the other hand, Eastern Michigan is 14-6 ATS in their last 20 games when playing as the underdog. They are also a dominant 5-1 the past three years off a home loss. I expect EMU to not only cover, but to keep it close the entire game, potentially even winning this game outright. Take the Eagles.
T.M. Prediction: 27-24 Pitt
|12-25-19||Pelicans v. Nuggets -9.5||112-100||Loss||-104||24 h 42 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Denver Nuggets
New Orleans had the first pick in the NBA Draft this year. They decided to go with future star Zion Williamson. He has yet to start or play a single game, due to injury, and that has resulted in a terrible record. The Pelicans are a sad 4-14 ATS in their last 18 games played in December. They are also an awful 2-14 SU in their last 16 games this season. For Denver, Jamal Murray has been dominant, Nikola Jokic has been either getting a double-double or a triple-double almost every single game, and the rest of the team has been just as good. The Nuggets have won each of their last 7 games with ease. They are also 5-0 SU in their last 5 games at home. In the past, Denver has won 4 of the past 5 games between these two teams. With, Zion out, and the rest of the team struggling, I expect them to have problems against this tough Nuggets team. Expect a beatdown on Christmas Night. Take Denver.
T.M. Prediction: 113-96 Nuggets
|12-25-19||Clippers +2 v. Lakers||Top||111-106||Win||100||21 h 15 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Clippers
Christmas always delivers. Here, it's the battle for L.A. and both of these teams are almost identical in skill. The Clippers come into this game 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games against opponents in the Pacific Division. They are also 9-3 SU in their last 12 games against opponents in the Western Conference. On the other hand, the Lakers have lost 3 games in a row. They started the season as the best team in the NBA, but now they have slipped off a little bit. In the past, the Clippers are a perfect 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games when playing on the road against LA Lakers. The Clippers have also won 16 of their last 20 meetings against each other. Expect a similar outcome here.
T.M. Prediction: 123-119 Clippers
|12-23-19||San Francisco +1 v. Fresno State||Top||71-69||Win||100||22 h 54 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: San Fran
Coming into this game, San Francisco is 10-3 SU in their last 13 games. The Dons are also 6-3 ATS in their last 9 games against Fresno State. Even better, they are a dominant 8-3 in their L11 games played in December. On the other hand, Fresno St comes in with a sad 1-4-1 ATS record in their last 6 games played on a Monday. The Bulldogs are also only 3-6 ATS in their last 9 games. Expect San Fran to take care of business on the road today. Take the Dons.
T.M. Prediction: 69-57 SF
|12-23-19||Packers +5.5 v. Vikings||Top||23-10||Win||100||22 h 56 m||Show|
T.M. Selection: Green Bay Packers
Coming into this game, Green Bay is 6-1 SU in their last 7 games against opponents in the NFC Conference. The Packers are also 4-1 SU in their last 5 games against opponents in the NFC North Division. Minnesota is only 5-9 ATS when playing against a team with a winning record in the second half of the season the past three years. The Vikings are also 1-4 ATS after having won 4 of their last 5 games. I expect a highly competetive game on Sunday Night with Aaron Rodgers and the Packers coming out on top.
QB Primetime Records:
SU: 7-14 (33.3%) | ATS: 6-14-1 (30.0%) | O/U: 12-9 (57.1%)
SU: 29-24 (54.7%) | ATS: 25-26-2 (49.0%) | OU: 28-25 (52.8%)
T.M. Prediction: 31-28 Packers
