Free NBA Pick
We’re limping along with a 33-43-0 record with three plus-money underdogs. It’s been a tough go thus far and we’re more than due to make a big NBA run. This is what I have for you tonight.
Minnesota Timberwolves vs New Orleans Pelicans
New Orleans is 4-0-1 ATS over their last five home contests as an underdog and they are getting 3.5 points tonight when they host Minnesota. The Timberwolves are 2-3-0 ATS as the away side while New Orleans is 5-3-0 ATS at Smoothie King Center this season.
The Pelicans have been good this season in their role as underdogs and are 5-2-0 ATS as underdogs this season. They benefit from having Brandon Ingram in the lineup but Devontae Graham is listed as questionable for tonight. Minnesota has won three straight but aren’t as good on the road as they are at home. The two sides have split their two previous meetings this season and both games were held in Minnesota.
We like the underdog Pelicans in this one. Minnesota has been on a roll at home winning three straight but New Orleans is more than decent at home and as we see the Pelicans are a team that seems to cover as underdogs and especially at home. Neither offense lights up the scoreboard and while Minnesota allows 106.5 points per game overall they are currently giving up 113 points per game as the away side. Consider taking the 3.5 points and going with New Orleans tonight.
Cash with Flash Monday NBA pick: New Orleans Pelicans +3.5 points
Free NHL Pick
We’re 0-5-0 with our NHL picks this season and missed with our short underdog Winnipeg Jets pick. We’ll continue chasing plus money underdogs but tonight we’re looking at a favorite for tonight.
Anaheim Ducks vs Nashville Predators
The Ducks have been hot and just saw an eight-game winning streak snapped by Carolina and Nashville is hoping to end a two-game losing streak tonight. Anaheim is 3-2-2 as the away team while Nashville is 4-3-0 at Bridgestone Arena this season. John Gibson (9-3-2) is expected to patrol the cage tonight for Anaheim and Nashville has confirmed that Juuse Saros will be tending to the twine tonight.
We like UNDER 5.5 goals tonight. Anaheim has been good but not so much on the road. Gibson is 3-1-2 away from home but has consecutive road wins over Seattle and Vancouver. Saros is 4-3-0 this season at home and won his last home start against Arizona. Both teams are top twelve in goals against, the goalies are more than average and we see a hard-hitting, low scoring contest tonight. Consider UNDER 5.5 goals tonight!
Cash with Flash Monday NHL Pick: Nashville UNDER 5.5 goals
Free College Basketball Pick
A 13-12-1 non-conference record thus far has been disappointing but we went 5-2 with our picks including our first plus-money underdog on Fridays Phil Naessens Show. Maybe this is the beginning of a good run for us with our college basketball picks. Let’s see if we can’t keep up with what seems like a decent run!
Ohio State Buckeyes vs Seton Hall Pirates
This one tips off at 6:00 pm as part of the Fort-Myers Tip-Off. Ohio State is getting 2.5 points tonight and is 3-1 this season and is 1-3-0 ATS overall. Seton Hall is 3-0 this season and has covered the spread in each of their three contests.
We like Ohio State in this one. 2.5 points is too many for Seton Hall to be giving up. This is likely an overreaction to the Buckeyes loss to Xavier than it does with anything the Pirates have done this season. The Pirates beat Michigan in their last contest nearly one week ago and maybe they were more lucky than good in that one. Michigan blew an eleven-point lead in that neutral court loss and Ohio State never led in their loss to Xavier. This is a huge opportunity for a bounce-back performance from the Buckeyes and 2.5 points is too many to give for Seton Hall. Ohio State is the better free-throw shooting team, better passes with the lower turnover rate. Consider taking the points and rolling with Ohio State to cover tonight.
Cash with Flash Monday CBB Pick: Ohio State Buckeyes +2.5 points
