College Football Pick
We’re somehow staying afloat with our college football picks and currently boasting a 47-38-1 mark this season. We’ve got a good one for you tonight!
Western Michigan Broncos vs Northern Illinois Huskies
The Broncos are 3.5 point away favorites and at 6-5-0 they will likely need another victory to get a post-season bowl invitation. They’ve lost three of their last four contests and are top sixty in scoring, top ninety in points allowed with an abysmal 4-6-1 overall ATS record. Western Michigan is also 1-3-1 ATS as the away side. The Huskies are also a high scoring side ranking forty-fifth in scoring but their 32.73 points ranks them at 109 in the country. Northern enters this one riding a two-game winning streak and at 7-3-0 this season another victory cements a very good bowl invite. The Huskies are 7-3-1 ATS overall and 3-1-1 ATS at Huskie Stadium.
We like the UNDER 59.5 total. It’s going to be a cold, windy night in Dekalb and while we have two strong offenses playing tonight the defenses are going to steal the show in this one. The Huskies like to run the football and that rolls right into the Broncos fifty-sixth ranked rushing defense. We have two good QBs going tonight but the windy conditions will make it tough to throw the ball effectively. Western has a pretty good ground game of their own against the Huskies 117th ranked rushing defense. Consider playing the UNDER tonight.
Cash with Flash Tuesday NCAAF Pick: Northern Illinois UNDER 59.5 points
Free NBA Pick
We’re limping along with a 33-44-0 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.
Denver Nuggets vs Portland Trail Blazers
Denver is a 6.5 point away favorite tonight and they are 7-10-0 ATS overall, 2-5-0 ATS as the away side and 2-4-0 ATS as the away underdog. Portland is 7-10-0 ATS overall, 6-3-0 ATS at Moda Center and 6-3-0 ATS as home favorites.
Denver is on a four-game losing skid and blew Portland out by twenty-nine points at home in their last victory. The Nuggets rank twenty-fourth in scoring but eighth in points allowed. Denver is bottom-five in total rebounds, eleventh in assists and eleventh in turnovers with the tenth best assist to turnover ratio in the game. Nikola Jokic has missed the past two games with a wrist injury and is questionable for this tilt while Michael Porter Jr is out for the foreseeable future with a bad back.
Portland is riding a three-game winning streak and has won four of their past five games. The Trail Blazers are seventh in scoring, twenty-second in points allowed, fourteenth in total rebounds, eleventh in assists, thirteenth in turnovers with the twelfth-best assist to turnover ratio in the Association. Portland isn’t listing any injuries on their report.
We like Portland tonight. Denver doesn’t have enough firepower without Jokic and Porter to deal with the backcourt of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. Denver smashed Portland in their previous meeting and you can bet the Trail Blazers will be looking for paybacks. Portland is the better shooting side and gets to the charity-stripe far more often than Denver does. The Nuggets second best points allowed takes a huge hit without Jokic and Porter in the lineup and they will also likely lose the battle of the boards. Consider laying the points and taking Portland to cover.
Cash with Flash Tuesday NBA Pick: Portland Trail Blazers -6.5 points
Free NHL Pick
We’re 1-5-0 with our NHL picks this season and finally off of the schneid. We’ll continue chasing plus money underdogs and tonight we have another plus-money dawg for you.
Philadelphia Flyers vs Tampa Bay Lightning
Philly enters this one hoping to end a two-game losing streak and has dropped three of their last five matchups. The Flyers are 4-2-1 as the away side and rank twenty-second in goals scored, eighth in goals allowed and suffered a shootout loss in their previous meeting with the Lightning. Tampa Bay is 5-3-2 as the home club, has won four of its past five, rank eleventh in scoring and eighteenth in goals allowed.
We like Tampa Bay at -1.5 goals at +145. Andrei Vasilevsky has been confirmed as the starting goaltender tonight; he got the win in their previous meeting and is 4-3-2 at home this season with a 2.32 GAA alongside a 92 percent save percentage. He’s up against a Philly offense that ranks twenty-second in goals per game with just eleven goals scored in their past five contests. Carter Hart is expected to tend to the twine tonight and he’s 2-2-1 as the away goalie with a 2.49 GAA and 93 percent save percentage. Brayden Point is out for Tampa Bay and he’s their fourth leading scorer with four points for the thirteenth ranked Lightning power play unit. Look for Vasilevsky to shine brightly in this one and the Lightning beat the puck line tonight. Consider Tampa Bay -1.5 goals for the plus-money win!
Cash with Flash Tuesday NHL Pick: Tampa Bay Lightning -1.5 Goals +145
Free College Basketball Pick
A 14-12-1 non-conference record thus far has been disappointing but we did win our Ohio State +2.5 point bet. After a horrid 0-5-0 start to the season we are finally in the black! Let’s see how we fare tonight!
Fordham Rams vs Delaware Blue Hens
We have a Gulf Coast Showcase matchup for tonight and Fordham is a +6.5 point underdog in this neutral court matchup. Fordham is off to a 3-2-0 start to their season and is 2-3-0 ATS. Delaware is 3-1-0 overall with an identical ATS record.
We like Fordham to cover tonight. The Rams offense leaves much to be desired but they do have a tough defense and shoot plenty of triples but haven’t connected on as many as they would like. That being said Delaware is one of the worst defenses in the college game against the long ball and if the Rams can knock a few more three-balls down they should cover the spread and possibly win this one outright. Delaware has plenty of experience with a solid offense but Fordham might have the better defense but both sides have high turnover rates; Fordham allows an average of 14.3 points off of turnovers while the Blue Hens allow 16.3 points per game off of turnovers. Throw in the Rams better assist to turnover ratio and we have all we need for Fordham to cover tonight. Consider taking the 6.5 points and going with Fordham in this one.
Cash with Flash Tuesday CBB Pick: Fordham +6.5 points
Good luck today!
