At 10:10 pm, our selection is on the Golden State Warriors minus the points over Phoenix. These two teams met earlier this week, and the Suns bested Golden State, 104-96, as a home favorite. But the Warriors will be at home in this rematch, and they'll also have the twin benefit of the Suns playing without rest (Phoenix defeated Detroit last night), as well as Devin Booker being injured. We'll lay the points with Golden State, as it is 12-0-1 ATS at home off a loss vs. unrested division foes, provided the Warriors weren't an underdog of +7 (or more) points. Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.
At 7:10 pm, our selection is on the Washington Wizards minus the points over Cleveland. The Cavs have run hot and cold this season, as they have enjoyed 8-game and 5-game ATS win streaks, but also lost five in a row, straight-up, earlier this season. They're currently riding a 3-game win streak (and a 5-game ATS win streak), following huge blowout wins over Orlando (105-92), Dallas (114-96) and Miami (111-84). But we will go against Cleveland tonight as a road underdog, as it falls into a negative 28% ATS system of mine which fades certain teams off upset wins. And the Wizards are also a solid 21-10 ATS at home vs. foes off back to back wins. Take Washington. Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.
At 7 pm, our selection is on the Niagara Purple Eagles over the Monmouth Hawks. In its last game, Monmouth shocked Cincinnati, 61-59, as a 10.5-point road underdog. They'll try to win back-to-back road games tonight, but the going should be tough for King Rice's men. For starters, the Hawks are a horrid 0-8 ATS their last 12 (and 1-12 ATS their last 13) on the road off a road win. And Monmouth also falls into a negative 61-116 ATS system of mine that goes against certain teams off an upset victory. Take the Purple Eagles.
At 8 pm, our selection is on the Virginia Cavaliers minus the points over Pittsburgh. The Cavs were upset by Iowa, 75-74, at the buzzer on Monday. And that loss snapped UVa's 4-game win streak. The good news for Tony Bennett's men tonight in their ACC Conference opener is that they are 18-0-1 ATS off a non-conference loss, when priced from -3 to -24.5 points. Take Virginia minus the points.
At 9 pm, our selection is on the Boise State Broncos minus the points over Tulsa. It's not often that the Broncos lose back to back games at home, but that's exactly what occurred over the last week. But, over the last 26 seasons, Boise has not lost 3 straight games, if all three were at home. That bodes well for them tonight. As does the fact that it is 9-3 ATS at home off an upset loss, and also a perfect 6-0 straight-up, and 5-1 ATS off back to back upset losses. Take Boise State minus the points. Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.
At 7 pm, on Friday, our selection is on the Texas-San Antonio Roadrunners + the points over Western Kentucky. Texas-San Antonio's 11-game win streak was snapped last weekend, when it lost, 45-23, as a 9.5-point road favorite to North Texas. But the good news for UTSA is that it's back home in the Alamodome on this Friday evening, where it will host Western Kentucky, a team it defeated, 52-46, as a 3.5-point road underdog, in October. And the Roadrunners have been installed as a home underdog for this rematch. That bodes well for Texas-San Antonio, as it's 13-3 ATS its last 16 as an underdog, including 5-0 ATS when off a double-digit loss, and also a perfect 5-0 ATS when getting 4 points or less. Even better: home underdogs with a .700 (or better) win percentage, off a loss by more than 20 points, have cashed 64% the past 42 years against conference foes off a win, including a perfect 10-0 ATS if that foe was playing with revenge. Take the Roadrunners + the points. Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.
At 8 pm, on Friday, our selection is on the Oregon Ducks + the points over Utah. These two Pac-12 rivals met in Utah last month, and the Utes routed Oregon, 38-7. We had a big play on Utah in that game, as that was a stellar situation for the home team. But we will switch gears and take the revenge-minded Ducks in this rematch. Utah is a wallet-busting 6-23 ATS when favored (or PK) against a .571 (or better) revenge-minded foe. And Oregon is a powerful 24-7-1 ATS away from home as an underdog of +3 or less points, including a perfect 5-0 ATS in the post-season. Take the Ducks + the points. Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.
