Mike Krzyzewski last season with Duke i expect the to start off the season pretty strong. Paolo Banchero is expected to have a huge game. Wildcats finished under 500 last season. They got some new talent but I think they will struggle early on. Duke is the better team.
In the 1st game of the season Purdue put up 96 points on 50 percent shooting. Even though the Sycamores won their first game, they didn’t look good. They turned the ball over at a very high rate (16 times) and their defense was was not great. Purdue has too much talent and if they continue to shoot the 3 ball well, they will easily cover tonight.
LSU has won three of its four home games this season and is 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games as a home underdog. Arkansas is 2-7 against the spread in their last nine games as a road favorite and just 1-4 against in their last five games overall. LSU has had a tougher schedule and Arkansas have allowed 326, 292, and 417 passing yards in their last 3 games against good quarterbacks, and Johnson has a cannon for an arm. LSU gets it done at home today.
Julio Jones is out, but the Titans will have all their key pass rushers. New Orleans will be missing running back Alvin Kamara and left tackle Terron Armstead. Tennessee is 7-2 against the toughest schedule in the league. The Titans have won and covered 5 straight, the last 4 as underdogs, and the last game came without Derrick Henry. Siemian went 3-9 in his last 12 games as a starter on the road for Denver.
New York ranks 27th in goals scored and was blanked by Andrei Vasilevskiy the last time the Bolts and Isles played -- Game 7 of last season's Stanley Cup semifinals. Islanders have been on the road have lost their past two by a combined score of 9-2. Andrei Vasilevsky hasn’t allowed more than 2 goals in any of his last 6 starts. I like Lightning at home tonight.
Golden Knights are missing many key players right now. The Canes have won 8 of their last 10 games. Canes are 5-1-0 on the road this season. The Golden Knights are going to struggle to keep up with the Canes tonight being short handed.
This is a revenge game for the Thunder. They lost to the Rockets on Oct 22nd. That was the Rockets only win this season. OKC lost the last 2 but won 4 straight prior to that. I like Thunder to bounce back and cover tonight.
Cavs are missing Allen, Markkanen, Sexton, Mobley and Stevens. Curry is confirmed for tonight. Warriors are the hottest team in the NBA right now. They are winning their last 5 games by an average of 13.4 points and 13.8 points in the favorite role. I don't see them slowing down at all. Double digit win for them tonight.
Pacers have struggles offensively the last 2 games scoring only 89 vs the Pistons and 84 vs the Knicks. If they don't turn things around offensively tonight it will be hard to keep up with the Hornets who are 2nd in scoring offense this season. The Pacers are 3-11 ATS in the last 14 meetings in Charlotte. Hornets are hot coming into this game winning 4 straight. They will make it 5 straight at home tonight.
The Predators have won 7 of their last 10 games. The Canadiens have lost 7 of their last 8 games and Jake Allen is expected to be out again. The Predators are playing much better hockey right now and the Canadiens have been just awful. Canadeins wont be able to offensivly keep up with the Predators tonight.
WFT have have not won back to back games all season. Before last weeks win, they had lost 4 stragiht. The defernse is ranked 27th and just lost Chase Young last week. Christian McCaffrey is also back today with Cam Newton I expect the panthers to get off to a hot start to this game.
The Giants have covered 19 of the last 23 times that they've been underdogs. New York is coming off a bye week and won 2 of the last 3 games prior to the break. The Bucs are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games as a favorite. Riding the primetime dog tonight.
Providence are 5-0 on the season and already have taken down two Big Ten teams in Wisconsin and Northwestern. No one has had an answer for Providence big man Nate Watson, who averages 18.6 points, 6.2 rebounds shooting 72% from the field. Providence are also a top-50 team rebounding the ball on the defensive end. Virginia will struggle tonight and Providence will get their 6th win tonight.
The Buckeyes are No. 40 in the country in 3-point shooting, but Florida's defense is ranked inside the top 60 in defending the long-range shot. Floridas top player Colin Castleton, who averages 17.0 points, 9.8 rebounds, and 3.5 blocks is going to be hard to stop by Ohio State. Florida has been playing extremely well and are way better defensively. They will win tonight.
The Cowboys will be missing Cooper and Ceedee and Elliot is playing with a knee injury. The Raiders are 10th in the NFL in pass defense limited opponents to 220 yards per game. With both star WRs out, I think the Raiders will be able to keep it close. This is a good spot for Carr to have a massive game against Cowboys 21st ranked pass D.
The Warriors are 8-2-1 ATS at home and Portland is 1-10 ATS last 11 road games. Warriors are one of the hottest teams in the NBA right now. Portalnd rely too much on CJ and Dame. Steve Kerr will have a good enough gameplan to try and shut them down. Warriors should win this game comfortably.
Kyle Shanahan as a home favorite 3-17-1 ATS. Minnesota has won four of six, the losses coming by three and four points. The Vikings are explosive; they had 14 plays of 10-plus yards against the Packers defense. This should be a close game throughout with Vikings covering and potentially winning outright.
