Good morning and happy Friday to you! Cash with Flash Best Bets welcomes you to our FREE daily sports betting sheet.
We’ve been back for nearly two weeks and this has been challenging but fun at the same time. We get to cover all the “free” picks in one place, let you see for yourself how we go about doing things and if you want more picks you can visit our subscription and pricing page and make that happen.
News and Notes
If you aren’t listening to our daily sports betting podcast then you are missing out. The Phil Naessens Show has been around for thirteen seasons and we do a bit of everything; from daily sports betting info and picks to interviews with legendary sports bettors as well as professional handicappers, we cover it all. Scott Fiedler and I gave out picks for Saturday’s Ohio State Buckeyes-Michigan Wolverines matchup plus our NFL leans for Week 12 of the NFL season.
Covid-19 is rearing its ugly head again and we have to be mindful of this. The daily free picks are usually published by 2:00 pm; we strongly suggest that you check out the latest injury reports before placing a wager. We use the pages of NBC Sports Edge and we believe you will find this site useful and extremely accurate.
Phil has written three sports betting-related books that he knows will help you become better at betting on Baseball, Daily Fantasy Baseball, and NFL and NCAAF football games. Visit his Amazon author page and Cash with the Flash!

We’ve managed to win two straight including our Tuesday Tampa Bay Lightning -1.5 goals for +140 pick. That leaves us with a 2-5-0 mark this season and we’re going to keep chasing underdogs in this moneyline sport.
Pittsburgh Penguins vs New York Islanders
Pittsburgh has won four straight and is 9-10-0 on the moneyline while New York is mired in a seven-game losing streak and is 5-11-0 on the moneyline thus far this season.
We like the Islanders tonight at +129. We know that New York hasn’t done the job this season but they do have Ilya Sorokin expected to tend to the twine and he’s 5-5-2 this season with a 2.54 GAA alongside a 92 percent save percentage. He’ll face a Penguins side that is 4-2-2 as the away side and Pittsburgh plans for Tristan Jarry between the pipes. Jarry is 9-4-3 this season with a 2.03 GAA and 93 percent save percentage. New York has been wracked by injuries and Covid-19 protocols but this is a gritty team playing in a new arena they haven’t won in yet but tonight is the night when the Islanders turn things around. Consider the New York Islanders in this one.
Cash with Flash Friday NHL Pick: New York Islanders +129
College Football Pick
We’re somehow staying afloat with our college football picks and currently boasting a 47-39-1 mark this season. We’ve got a good one for you tonight!
Washington State Cougars vs Washington Huskies
We have a HUGE Pac-12 rivalry tonight when the Washington State Cougars are one-point away favorites against the Washington Huskies. The Cougars are 7-4-0 ATS and 2-2-0 ATS as the away side and the Huskies are 3-8-0 ATS with a 2-4-0 ATS record this season as the home side.
We like the Huskies tonight. Washington opened the season in the Top Ten but their season didn’t pan out the way they hoped. The Cougars are second in the Pac-12, bowl eligible and winning one more contest sends them to a more profitable bowl game. The Huskies have lost their past three contests by a combined eighteen points and we’re not sure if the Cougars offense can do its thing against one of the best defenses in the country. Washington State QB Jayden de Laura has been very good this season but up against a Huskies passing defense allowing just 134 yards per contest. Defense will win this one and the Huskies have the better defense of the two. Consider taking the point and going with Washington to cover the spread tonight!
Cash with Flash Friday NCAAF Pick: Washington Huskies +1 point
Free College Basketball Pick
A 14-13-1 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 barely in the black! Let’s see how we fare tonight!
Northern Kentucky Norse vs Depaul Blue Demons
Depaul is a six-point home favorite tonight. The Norse are 2-2-0 overall and 0-3-0 ATS. Depaul checks in at 4-0-0 with a 3-1-0 ATS record at home this season.
We like Northern Kentucky to cover in this one. Depaul has enjoyed a nice start to their season but they aren’t going to beat the Norse by six points tonight. At least not by allowing the seventy-two points per game they currently allow they won’t. The Norse are a darn-good three-point shooting side and the Blue Demons aren’t very good at defending the triple at all and Depaul doesn’t shoot from long distance as well as Northern Kentucky does. Northern Kentucky also has a deeper bench and that will give them fresher legs playing at the faster Depaul tempo. Consider Northern Kentucky to cover in this one.
Cash with Flash Friday CBB Pick: Northern Kentucky +6 points
We’re limping along with a 34-44-0 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.
Chicago Bulls vs Orlando Magic
Chicago has dropped two-straight and has lost three of their past five while Orlando is hoping to end a four-game losing streak when the two teams collide at 7:00 pm tonight.
We like the Bulls to get back on track tonight. Chicago is a 9.5 point favorite and the Bulls are 6-1 ATS over their last seven when 10.5 point favorites or less. The Bulls are seventh in points allowed and face a Magic side ranked twenty-fourth in points allowed and twenty-eighth in points scored per game. Chicago looked sloppy in their Thanksgiving Day eve away loss to the Houston Rockets and you can bet the Bulls aren’t going to allow another winnable game get past them. Orlando has looked awful the entire season and is 1-7 overall and 2-6-0 ATS at Amway Center. Consider laying the 9.5 points and taking Chicago to cover tonight.
Cash with Flash Friday NBA Pick: Chicago Bulls -9.5 points.
Good luck today!
