NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: New Jersey Devils at New York Islanders

New Jersey -120 at NY Islanders O/U 6.5
Recommendation: Over

Betting New York Islanders games over the total has proven to be a meal ticket and season long cash cow for me this season. The Isles enter tonight’s game at 30-12 O/U and none of it is by accident. New York has an offense that doesn’t need many chances or scoring opportunities to produce goals. The Islanders are averaging 3.44 goals per game this season which improves to 3.81 goals per game on home ice. New Jersey is having a brutal time of it in terms of keeping the puck out of their own net. The Devils have surrendered 3+ goals in six straight games and a total of 26 goals allowed during that span so it is not surprising to see them trending 5-1 O/U during this stretch. Cory Schneider tonight’s starting goalie for New Jersey and their #1 netminder has hit a rough patch lately allowing 4 or more goals in five consecutive starts and the Over has cashed in each of those five games. I would expect the NY Islanders to find the back of the net early and often tonight as they have in most of their games throughout the season. On the flip side, for as good Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Northern Illinois Huskies at Buffalo Bulls

Northern Illinois at Buffalo -15 O/U 155
Recommendation: Under

The Buffalo Bulls are off to a 4-0 start in MAC play; all four wins by double-digits. The first of the four was a resounding 104-94 victory over Toledo. The result and pace (80 possessions) seems to have "juiced" the Bulls totals a bit. Since the win over Toledo, Buffalo has played three straight opponents very similar to Northern Illinois. Against Ball State, Akron, and Miami-Ohio, the game scores were 146, 152, and 148; all of which went under the total. More importantly, the Bulls didn't allow more than 66 points. Northern Illinois played a handful of high scoring affairs during the non-conference but we've seen the Huskies return to the "norm" since MAC play began. NIU's four league games yielded four "unders" and games scores of 136, 146, 123, and 138. Buffalo serves as a big step up in class but NIU just hasn't shown much of a willingness if any to play up-tempo during Mark Montgomery's seven-year tenure. Also note that last year's meeting closed 144.5 and Buffalo won 65-45. We won't see a low score like that tonight but plenty of wiggle room to get us under the Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Oklahoma State Cowboys at Baylor Bears

Oklahoma State at Baylor -5 O/U 145
Recommendation: Under

Took a contrarian side to victory with the Free Play last week and will do it again here in this Big XII match-up. Subtraction of last season’s Head Coach Brad Underwood has not changed the Cowboys offensive style as they still play a high tempo brand of basketball under new HC Mike Boynton. Their average adjusted tempo has increased in Big XII play from 71 possessions to 74 based on KenPom numbers which is understandable since the league is loaded with up and down style teams. To their credit, OSU has remained an efficient offensive team despite significant personnel losses from last season but the overall number includes more than a half dozen non-conference defensive cupcakes. Games frequently unfold situationally due to styles and what’s interesting here about the Cowboys is how their brand of offense was stoned Saturday by slow tempo-defense oriented Texas. Despite a very respectable 44.8 FG% against the Longhorns who only allow an average of 42%, the game was reduced to a crawl and 65-64 final score.

For the last 3-4 years, Baylor has made a niche Read more

NFL Gambling News: Ending of Saints-Vikings had huge pointspread implications

01.15.2018     11:13 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Las Vegas sportsbook directors react to the ending of the New Orleans-Minnesota game in which the Vikings scored a touchdown, went up 5, went bonkers, came back out, and took a knee for the extra point. Minnesota closed -5.5 and won 29-24.

“That play balanced us out,” Kornegay told USA TODAY Sports. “(That) type of last-second play has been going against us, but this time it was exactly what we needed. It was a good thing for us. It would have been better had the Vikings made the extra point.”

“We needed that extra point,” Nick Bogdanovich, director of trading at William Hill, told USA TODAY Sports. “The Vikings’ touchdown did save us when it came to those who bet the Saints on the money line.”
