Both teams have hot bats and I expect the Astros to come out looking to tie this up. I think they can get to Fried. The reason I don’t take the Astros is because I don’t really trust Urquidy and see him getting busted up. Let’s enjoy this game and get some runs tonight!
Love Ertz here and the offense he is on now. After being traded, he only had a couple of days of practice before his first game with his new team and he had 5 targets with 3 catches for 60 yards. After an extra week with them, I expect him to be involved even more. Let’s have a big game from Ertz!
Coming off a heart breaking loss last night, I think they will come out firing tonight. Their season is on the line and they are facing an inexperienced pitcher that they should get to early. Valdez is due for a bounce back game. Let’s get a big Astros win.
The Astros head back home with their season on the line once again. They spotted the Braves 4 runs in the first inning last game, but their bats brought them all the back to win it. The Astros have already hit Fried and I expect them to do that again.
Central Michigan’s quarterback has started to figure it out after he took full control of the reins. Richardson is coming off a three touchdown performance against NIU and I see him continuing that tonight. Last year they put up 44 points against Western Michigan and I think they will have to score again tonight to keep up with Western Michigan.
We took Cade’s prop last game and it was such a tough beat with him shooting 2-14 from the field and 0-9 from 3. He ended with 11 PRA that game even with shooting that bad. I believe he will bounce back and start hitting some shots tonight which should allow for him to go way over this number.
Cincinnati is going to come into this game pissed. They just got pushed out of the top 4 because of their sloppy play recently. They are undefeated and if they are going to want to make the top 4 then they will have to prove a point here today. I don’t think Tulsa is good and if Cincy plays what they are capable of then they could win by 35.
Cole Kmet has averaged 5.7 targets in his last 3 games with Justin Fields. Fields trusts the short dump off passes since he hasn’t had much success elsewhere. Kmet has had 4, 5, and 3 receptions in his last three games and in a game that they are 7 point dogs, I think they will need to pass.
UT Arlington is a very scrappy and good team. Last year the Pokes beat UT Arlington by 7 with Cade Cunningham. In the home opener this is too many points. Oklahoma State will be without Bryce Williams tonight and I see them winning by 10-15 points.
We rolled with Cade in his last game and he cashed this with us. He is shooting a ton and has just been ice cold. I think he will start to find his grove and this line will eventually move to 2.5, so let’s take advantage of it while we can! Also a huge matchup tonight between him and Jalen Green.
Both of these teams have very explosive offenses. North Carolina’s defense should have no chance in this game and Pitt’s defense has recently been exposed. In a game that will be a shootout, I would rather have the over than a side. The over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings between these two.
