NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles Clippers

12.20.2016     09:42 AM     Rob Veno     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Rob Veno blog entry.
Denver +8 at Los Angeles O/U 219
Recommendation: Denver

The Clippers come back home after a three-game road trip but they do so without the services of Blake Griffin who is having arthroscopic knee surgery. Without Griffin, the dynamics on offense change drastically. Fundamentally, their transition offense is now significantly downgraded and in the half court, they do not have a replacement with Griffin’s capabilities. Playing without their leading scorer isn’t new since the Clippers did it for 45 games last season but it does force a restructuring of sorts to their offensive style and it places a heavy burden on Chris Paul, J.J. Reddick and Jamal Crawford. That backcourt trio presents the only real offensive threats proven enough to try and compensate for the 21.2 ppg that will be missing for the next three to six weeks. Depth and defense are also obviously hurt for the Clippers who are in a current 4-13 tailspin against the spread.

Denver on the other hand is fully healthy for the first time this season and they are 3-0 ATS in their last three including a 117-107 home win and cover against Dallas last night. The Nuggets Read more

Dollar General Bowl Betting Preview: Ohio Bobcats vs. Troy Trojans

Ohio vs. Troy
Dollas General Bowl - Mobile, Ala.
Friday, 5 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Troy -4 O/U 49
CRIS Current: Troy -4 O/U 49
Recommendation: Ohio

The Troy Trojans (9-3) have already played in Ladd Peebles Stadium with a late October win over South Alabama, 28-21. The 166-mile drive from Troy to Mobile will likely mean more Trojan faithful in the seats and perhaps a little home field advantage but there are a number of angles that point towards there being value on the underdog Ohio Bobcats.

The Trojans are led by second-year head coach Neil Brown and quarterback Brandon Silvers. Silvers put up respectable numbers in Sun Belt play (264 ypg, 12-6 TD-to-INT ratio) but a closer examination shows he struggled against the league’s better defenses. Against Appalachian State, Silvers finished with a 114.4 QB rating and dismal 85.6 against Arkansas State. Those were by far his two worst performances of the season vs. league foes. The Arkansas State game is of particular significance because the Red Wolves boast one of the better front sevens in the mid-major circuit with 125 tackles for Read more

College Football Handicapping: Bowl games trending UNDER the total

12.20.2016     08:58 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
College football bowl game unders have been the best bet in town over the last week. Based on CRIS's closing numbers five of the six games went under the total with Monday's Central Michigan-Tulsa game pushing (65.5 was widely available elsewhere). The most noteworthy were the New Mexico and Las Vegas bowls that each moved 10 points under (some of which weather-related) and still won easily.

UTSA vs. New Mexico
CRIS Opener: 64
CRIS Closer: 54
Result: UNM 23, UTSA 20 - UNDER

Houston vs. San Diego State
CRIS Opener: 60
CRIS Closer: 50
Result: SDSU 34, UH 10 - UNDER

Appalachian State vs. Toledo
CRIS Opener: 56
CRIS Closer: 59.5
Result:  ASU 31, TOL 28 - OVER/UNDER

Arkansas State vs. UCF
CRIS Opener: 49.5
CRIS Closer: 51.5
Result: ASU 31, UCF 13 - UNDER

Southern Miss vs. UL-Lafayette

NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Deroit Red Wings at Carolina Hurricanes

12.19.2016     12:05 PM     Alex Smith     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Alex Smith blog entry.
Detroit +135 at Carolina O/U 5
Recommendation: Detroit

Two Eastern Conference clubs hook-up down in Raleigh tonight as the Detroit Red Wings travel to face the Hurricanes of Carolina. Detroit heads to the road for 6 of their next 7 games, which should bring a welcome change after the club went 1-4 on their recent 5-game home stand. Detroit's offense had been stagnant as of late until their six-goal outburst in Saturday's win over Anaheim, led by a hat trick from winger Thomas Tatar. Captain Henrik Zetterberg was held to just one point during the home stand and defenseman Mike Green, who leads Wings blue-liners with 18 points, is questionable for this contest after suffering a lower body injury last game.

The Red Wings are 8-3-1 away from the Motor City as they prepare to play a Hurricanes squad that has picked up at least 1 point in 9 consecutive home games, going 8-0-1 during that span at the RBC Center, despite losing 6 of their last 10 games overall. Both clubs have shown some struggles to remain consistent on offense. Outside of an 8-6 win over Vancouver on Dec. 13, Carolina has scored 3 or fewer goals in 15 of their last 16 contests. Read more

NFL Gambling News: Bettors should avoid the Minnesota Vikings

12.19.2016     12:01 PM     ICC     Printer Friendly
Submitted by ICC blog entry.
Last week, I looked at betting strategies for two AFC teams the remainder of the season. We pegged Kansas City as “bet against” and Pittsburgh “bet on” as both teams delivered with the Chiefs losing outright at home to Tennessee and the Steelers getting the win and cover at Cincinnati. This week we’ll use the same format but turn our attention to the NFC.

The Detroit Lions’ lead in the NFC North fell to just one game following their 17-6 loss at New York and Green Bay’s win at Chicago. New York’s defense is an elite-level unit but Detroit was able to move the football at times and actually outgained the Giants 324-300. Unfortunately for the Lions, they were on the wrong end of some bad bounces with a -2 turnover margin including a key fumble inside New York’s 5-yard line. I however came away impressed with the Lions’ defense as it held its eighth straight opponent to 20 points or less. Sunday’s somewhat misleading result may provide residual betting value moving forward. We’ve already seen this week’s opponent, Dallas, take early money with Detroit now +7.5 road underdogs after opening +7. Read more

NFL Betting News: Plenty of playoff spots still up for grabs heading into Week 16

12.19.2016     09:24 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
With two weeks remaining in the NFL regular season there is still a lot to hash out in terms of playoff spots. Here's a good breakdown of what's going on. Tonight's Carolina-Washington outcome will help better clear up the NFC. Perhaps more importantly, Cincinnati, San Diego, NY Jets, Jacksonville, Cleveland, Arizona, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Chicago, and San Francisco have all been officially eliminated.

College Football Handicapping: Fournette and McCaffrey pass on bowl games

12.19.2016     09:15 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Big name college football players continue to opt out of the postseason with LSU's Leonard Fournette and Stanford's Christian McCaffrey deciding health and the NFL is more important. For LSU, not having Fournette probably won't mean much considering Derrius Guice ran for 1.249 yards and nearly 8 yards per carry. McCaffrey's backup, Bryce Love, also put up big numbers (664 yards, 7.38 ypc). The concern though with Love is that he's carried the ball more than 12 times only once this season and the Cardinal like to run the ball 40+ times per game. Of course it may not matter who is running the ball considering Stanford's bowl opponent, North Carolina, ranks 113th nationally against the run (235.5 ypg allowed). Neither loss has impacted the pointspread with LSU holding at -3 (-115) vs. Louisville and Stanford -3.5 vs. North Carolina.
