|11-06-19||Belmont -6 v. Illinois State||Top||72-79||Loss||-114||13 h 59 m||Show|
100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Belmont -6 -114
After losing their head coach to retirement and their star guard to graduation, the new-look Belmont Bruins will look to start the season strong against the Illinois State Redbirds.
Rick Byrd did a wonderful job in his last season in charge of the Bruins, leading the team to a 27-6 record and an NCAA Tournament berth. Byrd now hands to reigns over to his former player, Casey Alexander.
On the floor, Belmont also loses a big piece in the form of guard Dylan Windler, who was a first-round draft pick after a senior season in which he averaged 21.3 points and 10.8 rebounds per game.
However, the Bruins are returning three starters from a year ago, including OVC Freshman of the Year Nick Muszynski, who averaged 14.7 points and 5.8 rebounds per game.
Last year, Belmont was the second-ranked scoring offense in college basketball with 86.9 points per game.
Illinois State was perfectly average last year. On top of a 9-9 record in MVC play, the Redbirds went 17-16 overall.
The Redbirds are returning only one starter from last season – Zach Copeland. If Illinois State will improve, they’ll likely need more than 9.6 points per game from Copeland.

50* Powerhouse Play on Kings/Raptors over218½ -110
The Raptors (4-2) have responded well to losing their superstar player after last year’s championship. Tonight, they’ll host the struggling Kings (2-5) in Toronto. The over/under is set at 218.5 points.
Sacramento opened the season with a five-game losing streak. However, the Kings have entered the month of November looking like a new team. After a one-point victory over Utah, the Kings took care of the Knicks to win their second straight contest.
On average, Sacramento is scoring 101.1 points while allowing 110.1 points per game.
The duo of De’Aaron Fox and Buddy Hield is finding its feet for Sacramento. In the win against New York, Fox went for 24 points with six assists, and Hield added another 22 points with four rebounds.
With three wins in a row over Chicago, Orlando, and Detroit, the Raptors showed that they’re not going to fall apart after Kawhi Leonard’s departure. However, Toronto fell to Milwaukee by 10 in their most recent game.
On average, the Raptors are scoring 113 points and allowing 106.8 points per game.
Pascal Siakam is quickly evolving into a star. Thus far, he leads Toronto with 26 points and 8.5 rebounds per game. Kyle Lowry has been productive as well, scoring 24 points per game in addition to 6.8 assists and five rebounds.
|11-05-19||Wild +110 v. Ducks||4-2||Win||110||13 h 20 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on Wild +110
The Ducks (9-6-1, 19 points) have more than doubled the point total of the Wild (4-9-1, 9 points) at this point in the season. Tonight, the Ducks will host Minnesota in Anaheim.
The Wild are the last-place team in the Central Division with Chicago two points ahead. Back-to-back losses to the Blues extended Minnesota’s losing streak to three games, but Minnesota lost both contests by a single goal.
On average, the Wild are scoring 2.36 goals per game (29th) while allowing 3.50 goals per game (tied for 24th).
Although the Wild haven’t enjoyed much offensive production, center Eric Staal has done what he can. With four goals, six assists, and 10 points, Staal leads the team in all three categories. Goaltender Alex Stalock leads Minnesota in net with 2.49 goals allowed per game with a .914 save percentage.
Despite earning 19 points to this point of the NHL season, the Ducks are still fighting for a top place in the Pacific Division that has six teams between 18 and 22 points. This will be Anaheim’s third game in five days, with their most recent contest resulting in a 3-2 loss to a poor Chicago team.
On average, the Ducks are scoring 2.69 goals per game (25th) while allowing 2.44 goals per game (5th).
Although John Gibson leads the Ducks with six wins from between the pipes, Ryan Miller has fewer goals allowed per game (2.30) and a better save percentage (.926).
|11-05-19||Pepperdine v. California +2.5||71-87||Win||100||13 h 42 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on California +2½ -109
Berkley, California will be the site of a non-conference season opener for both the Pepperdine Waves and Cal Golden Bears with the latter playing host.
Under first-year head coach Lorenzo Romar, Pepperdine won 10 more games than the year prior last season. However, the Waves still finished with a losing record after winning only 16 games and advanced the school’s streak of NCAA Tournament absences to 17 seasons.
Colbey Ross was Pepperdine’s standout player last year. On average, Ross put up 19.7 points and seven assists per game whilst shooting 39.6% from three. In addition to Ross, Pepperdine will feature Kameron Edwards, who scored 14.7 points with 6.2 rebounds per game, and Kessler Edwards who scored 10 points with 5.6 rebounds per game.
The Pepperdine offense played with pace under Romar, but left themselves open to attack on the defensive end. Opposing offenses were able to score by shooting 53.9% from the field.
California is looking for a quick turnaround after last year’s 8-23 season, and they brought in former Georgia head coach Mark Fox to do so. Fox finished with a winning record in each of his last five seasons with Georgia in a tough SEC.
Senior Justice Sueing led the 2018-19 Cal team with 14.3 points and six rebounds per game.
|11-05-19||Heat +4.5 v. Nuggets||Top||89-109||Loss||-109||14 h 5 m||Show|
100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Heat +4½ -109
Through 12 total games, you’ll find only three losses between the Heat (5-1) and Nuggets (4-2). Tonight, these two teams will do battle in Denver.
Miami has been a pleasant surprise in the Eastern Conference. Only a 116-109 loss to the Timberwolves separates the Heat from a perfect record. Most recently, Miami won back-to-back games against the Hawks before taking down the Rockets in a comfortable win.
On average, the Heat are scoring 117.8 points and allowing 106.2 points per game.
The Heat are getting production from all over the place. In total, Miami has eight players scoring in the double digits on average. Of those eight, half are scoring at least 15 points per game. Kendrick Nunn leads the way with his 19.5 points per game.
The Nuggets jumped out to a 3-0 start before dropping two straight against Dallas and New Orleans, the latter of which felt like a blowout against a weak NBA roster. Most recently, Denver bounced back with a 91-87 win in Orlando.
On average, the Nuggets are scoring 103.5 points and allowing 103.2 points per game.
Nikola Jokic is scoring 15.8 points while averaging a team-high 10.5 rebounds and six assists per game. While Jokic is the most productive player, Jamal Murray is leading the team in scoring, with 18.5 points per game.
|11-05-19||Lakers -7 v. Bulls||118-112||Loss||-109||12 h 13 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on Lakers -7 -109
All of a sudden, the Lakers (5-1) look like the best team in the NBA. This evening, the Bulls (2-5) will do their best to slow down L.A. when they host LeBron and company in Chicago.
Since dropping the season opener to the cross-town rival Clippers, the Lakers have ripped off five victories in a row. Defense has been the special ingredient on this streak that includes wins over Utah and San Antonio.
On average, the Lakers are scoring 109.8 points and allowing 99.3 points per game.
When LeBron recruited Anthony Davis, the Lakers instantly had one of the best duos in basketball. So far, it’s showing. While James is scoring 25.5 points per game while leading the team with 11.2 assists and 1.5 steals per game, Davis is tops on the Lakers with 28.5 points, 11.5 rebounds, and three blocks per game.
The Bulls haven’t had much success through the early part of the NBA season. After notching their second win of the season at the start of November, Chicago then lost handily to the Pacers.
On average, the Bulls are scoring 105 points and allowing 110.3 points per game.
Zach LaVine continues to be the leading scorer for Chicago. On the season, LaVine is averaging 21.1 points, four rebounds, and 3.6 assists per game.
|11-05-19||Devils v. Jets -135||Top||2-1||Loss||-135||12 h 52 m||Show|
100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Jets -135
The Devils (3-5-4, 10 points) could very well be the worst team in hockey. Tonight, New Jersey will travel to Winnipeg to take on the Jets (8-7-0, 16 points).
It will surprise nobody that the Devils are currently in the basement of the Metropolitan Division, with a whopping 15 points separating New Jersey from the division-leading Capitals. Before Saturday’s 5-3 win over Carolina, the Devils lost three games in a row.
On average, the Devils are scoring 3.00 goals per game (tied for 16th) while allowing 3.92 goals per game (29th).
Goaltending has been a problem for New Jersey, as Mackenzie Blackwood has earned the best statistics on the team with just three wins, an .878 save percentage, and 3.19 goals allowed per game.
Winnipeg is struggling to break into the top three of the Central Division, but they trail St. Louis, Nashville, and Colorado. The Jets have now won three of their last four, with all three wins coming by way of a one-goal margin.
On average, the Jets are scoring 2.73 goals per game (22nd) while allowing 3.27 goals per game (19th).
With five goals and 10 assists, center Mark Scheifele leads the Jets with 15 points. Goalminder Connor Hellebuyck has earned a team-high six wins with a .927 save percentage.
|11-05-19||Ball State v. Western Michigan UNDER 64||Top||31-35||Loss||-109||29 h 23 m||Show|
100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Ball State/Western Michigan under64 -109
With a win tonight, the Ball State Cardinals (4-4) would earn themselves a winning record. To do so, they’ll need to take down the Western Michigan Broncos (5-4) on the road. The over/under is set at 64 points.
Before ending October on a losing note with a 34-21 defeat to Ohio, Ball State ripped off three wins in a row over Northern Illinois, Eastern Michigan, and Toledo. In those three victories, the Cardinals held their opponents to 23 points or fewer.
On average, Ball State is scoring 33 points per game on 441 yards of offense while allowing 29 points per game on 398 yards.
Throwing to four different pass catchers with at least 300 receiving yards, quarterback Drew Plitt leads the Ball State offense. While completing 64.9% of his passes, Plitt has thrown for 1,977 yards with 17 touchdowns and six interceptions.
With one of the better records in the Mid-American Conference, Western Michigan has experienced a season of slaloming back and forth between wins and losses. Most recently, the Broncos enjoyed one of the team’s biggest wins of the season with a 49-10 drubbing of Bowling Green.
On average, Western Michigan is scoring 36 points per game on 461 yards of offense while allowing 26 points per game on 430 yards of offense.
The Broncos have held their opponents to 16 points or less in five of their nine contests.
|11-05-19||Bruins +100 v. Canadiens||4-5||Loss||-100||11 h 53 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on Bruins +100
The Bruins (11-1-2, 24 points) are well on their way to a third-straight season of at least 100 points. Tonight, they’ll face a tough challenge when they go into Montreal to take on the Canadiens (7-5-2, 16 points).
Boston is currently enjoying a four-point gap between themselves and the Sabres atop the Atlantic Division. The Bruins have been able to rise to the top of that division in large part because of their current six-game winning streak. On that streak, the Bruins have scored 30 goals in six games.
On average, the Bruins are scoring 3.71 goals per game (3rd) while allowing 2.14 goals per game (tied for 1st).
Right winger David Pastrnak has been a huge part of Boston’s offensive explosion with his team-leading 14 goals and 29 points. In goal, Tukka Rask is allowing 1.49 goals per game with a .949 save percentage.
Montreal sits eight points behind their competition tonight, which leaves them in the middle of the Atlantic Division. Before losing 4-1 to the Stars in their most recent game, the Canadiens won three straight against Toronto, Arizona, and Vegas.
On average, the Canadiens are scoring 3.57 goals per game (tied for 5th) while allowing 3.14 goals per game (18th).
Having saved 312 of the 341 shots he’s faced, goaltender Carey Price has a save percentage of .915 and is allowing 2.64 goals per game.
|11-05-19||Bradley -4.5 v. St. Joe's||Top||81-86||Loss||-109||12 h 42 m||Show|
100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Bradley -4½ -109
The Hawks of St. Joe’s will kick off the season with a non-conference contest as they host the Bradley Braves.
Bradley is coming off a strong 20-15 season in which they won nine of their 18 games in conference play. With Drake leading the conference, the Braves finished fifth in the MVC standings.
By allowing just 65.3 points per game, Bradley ranked 35th in the nation a year ago. The Braves were clearly a defensive team, as they ranked 366th with their 66.5 points per game on offense.
St. Joe’s was one of the weaker teams in the Atlantic 10 Conference, trailing well behind 25-8 VCU and 24-10 Davidson. With just six wins out of their 14-19 record coming in the conference, the Hawks will need a big improvement if they’ll come close to competing for anything meaningful this year.
The Hawks were a mediocre team on both side of the ball a season ago. While St. Joe’s ranked 269th in scoring offense with 70.5 points per game, they ranked 211th in scoring defense with 72.6 points allowed.
After serving as St. Joe’s captain for three years, guard Lamarr Kimble transferred to Louisville, taking his 15.6 points per game with him.
|11-05-19||George Washington +6.5 v. Towson||58-72||Loss||-110||11 h 15 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on George Washington +6½ -110
Both the George Washington Colonials and Towson Tigers struggled throughout the season last year. Tonight, both teams will aim to start a new campaign on the right foot as they face off on Towson’s home floor.
In the Atlantic Ten, George Washington managed just four conference wins as part of their 9-24 overall record. Meanwhile, Towson earned a similar record of 10-22 while going 6-12 in the Colonial Athletic Association.
After last year’s underperformance, the Colonials decided a change was needed at head coach. So, George Washington opted to hire Jamion Christian, who spent a single year in Siena, where he led the Saints to a record of 17-16 and 11-7 in conference play.
Christian will try to open things up for guard Maceo Jack, who returns as the team’s third-leading scorer form a year ago with 11.5 points per game.
Towson played decent defensive basketball last year, holding opponents to 43.6% shooting from the field. However, the Tigers’ offensive production was severely lacking. By shooting 32.7% from three and 43.5% from the field, Towson struggled to outscore anyone.
Senior Brain Fobbs led the team with 17.5 points and 5.9 rebounds per game.
|11-05-19||Virginia Tech v. Clemson -6.5||67-60||Loss||-105||11 h 35 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on Clemson -6½ -105
Neither the Virginia Tech Hokies or the Clemson Tigers will be ranked as the 2019-20 college basketball season gets underway. Tonight, these two teams will go head to head on Clemson’s home court.
Last year, Clemson finished with a record of 20-14 and went 9-9 in ACC play. Virginia Tech finished the season with a 26-9 record that included a 12-6 performance in the conference.
These two squads most recently met back in February. Although you can’t necessarily glean too much from a contest between last year’s teams, it’s worth noting that Clemson earned a 59-51 victory at home.
After a trip to the Sweet 16, head coach Buzz Williams departed Virginia Tech in favor of Texas A&M. Now, new coach Mike Young will have to see what he can do without the team’s top five scorer from a season ago, all of whom are no longer with the Hokies.
Finding offense will be tough for a Virginia Tech team that ranked 170th in the nation with 73.5 points per game last season.
By allowing just 63.9 points per game last year, the Tigers ranked 23rd in scoring defense. Offensively, Clemson will be counting on Curran Scott, who scored 8.9 points a game at Tulsa, and Tevin Mack, who scored nine points per game at Alabama.
|11-05-19||VMI v. East Carolina -7.5||68-80||Win||100||10 h 37 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on East Carolina -7½ -109
After a 10-21 season, the East Carolina Pirates are aiming for a more successful season this year. To start towards that goal, the Pirates will play host to the VMI Keydets in the first game of the new campaign.
VMI finished the 2018-19 season as one of the worst teams in the Southern Conference. Only Western Carolina was worse in a conference that featured the likes of Wofford, UNC Greensboro, and Furman.
The Keydets don’t have a lot to build on, and it’s gotten even worse after guard Bubba Parham, who led the Southern Conference in scoring, decided to transfer away from VMI to Georgia Tech. Without another scorer averaging even 11 points per game a season ago, VMI will miss the 21.4 points per game Parham racked up last year.
East Carolina only managed three wins out of 18 conference games last season to finish 13 games back of the AAC-leading Houston Cougars.
Second-year head coach Joe Dooley is spearheading one of the biggest rebuilds in the country with only two players returning from last year’s squad: Seth LeDay, who scored 11 points per game, and Jayden Gardner, who scored 16.3 points per game. 11 newcomers are joining this Pirates team.
|11-05-19||Louisville v. Miami-FL +7||87-74||Loss||-105||9 h 29 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on Miami-FL +7 -105
After finished with a record of 20-14 a year ago, the #5 Louisville Cardinals are set to kick off the college basketball season against the Miami Hurricanes in Coral Gables.
While both teams will be short-handed to start the season, Louisville will have the biggest of the losses with the absence of center Malik Williams, who averaged 9.8 points and 8.4 rebounds per game in his last five games. After breaking his foot in September, Williams is likely to return later this month.
In Williams’ place will be Steven Enoch, who averaged 10 points and 5.6 rebounds per game from the bench over the Cardinals last 20 games.
Miami is looking to rebound from a 14-18 season, and they should have more talent and depth in that endeavor. Last season, the Hurricanes played the majority of their games with a seven-man rotation. This year, Miami should have more to offer with center Rodney Miller and forwards Sam Waardenburg and Anthony Walker in the frontcourt.
Last season, guard Chris Lykes led the Hurricanes with 16.2 points per game in addition to his 3.2 assists and 2.7 rebounds per game. Guard Dejan Vasiljevic was the best shooter on the team, hitting 91.8% of his free throws and 36.7% of his attempts from three.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Oilers -115
After a slight lull, the Oilers (10-4-1, 21 points) have gotten back on track and remain one of the NHL’s best teams through the early section of the season. Tonight, the Oilers will host the Coyotes (8-4-1, 17 points) in Edmonton.
Arizona has been a solid team over the recent part of the schedule, but they still trail five teams in a strong Pacific Division. The Coyotes have won three of their last four, including a 3-0 shutout over the Avalanche their last time out.
On average, the Coyotes are scoring 2.85 goals per game (20th) while allowing 2.15 goals per game (2nd).
Darcy Kuemper has been one of the best goaltenders in the NHL this season. With a save percentage of .942, Kuemper has allowed only 1.67 goals per game.
The Oilers have bounced back from their toughest stretch of this young season with a pair of wins over Columbus and Pittsburgh. Edmonton was good on defense in both games, holding the opponent to a single goal in each contest.
On average, the Oilers are scoring 2.87 goals per game (19th) while allowing 2.47 goals per game (7th).
With a team-leading 13 goals in addition to his 13 assists, center Leon Draisaitl is tops on the Oilers with 26 points.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Rockets/Grizzlies under234 -110
While the Rockets (3-3) continue to struggle on defense, the Grizzlies (1-4) are just, plain struggling. Tonight, these two teams will go head to head in Memphis. The over/under is set at 234 points.
Houston is set for its fourth-straight game on the road after playing in Washington D.C., Brooklyn, and Miami. In all three contests, the Rockets showed they’ll need a lot of offense to overcome their weak defense. In losses to the Heat and Nets, Houston allowed 123 points or more. In their victory over the Wizards, the Rockets allowed 158.
On average, the Rockets are scoring 121.3 points per game while allowing 127 points per game.
It’s no surprise to see James Harden leading the Rockets in scoring with 35.3 points per game. In addition to a team-high 9.8 rebounds and 9.2 rebounds per game, Russell Westbrook has added another 21.2 points per contest.
The Grizzlies needed overtime to take down Brooklyn and earn their first win of the season. Memphis has been unable to win or surpass 105 points in any of their four other games.
On average, Memphis is scoring 106.6 points per game while allowing 119.4 points per game.
With a team-leading 18.8 points per game, Ja Morant has gotten off to a great start to his NBA career. However, the Grizzlies don’t have another player averaging more than 13.2 points per game.
|11-04-19||Bucks -6 v. Wolves||134-106||Win||100||11 h 35 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on Bucks -6 -109
A pair of strong NBA rosters will face off in Minnesota this evening when the Timberwolves (4-1) play host to the Bucks (4-2).
Milwaukee has regained some of its preseason shine with a pair of victories over Orlando and Toronto. The Bucks won both those games handily, despite having to play them on consecutive days.
On average, the Bucks are scoring 119.2 points per game while allowing 111 points per game.
Milwaukee will go as far as Giannis Antetokounmpo takes them, and that will likely be enough for a deep postseason run. So far, Giannis leads the Bucks with 26.7 points, 13.8 rebounds, 7.7 assists, and 1.3 steals per game.
In Milwaukee’s most recent game, Giannis had a game-high 36 points in addition to 15 rebounds and eight assists. Three other Bucks starters pitched in with at least 11 points in the game.
Only a loss to the 76ers that featured a scuffle between Karl-Anthony Towns and Joel Embiid has kept Minnesota from earning a perfect record through five games. Most recently, the Wolves defeated the Wizards 131-109.
On average, the Wolves are scoring 118 points and allowing 112 points per game.
Towns has been Minnesota’s best player through the opening part of the season. With 27.2 points and 11.5 rebounds per game, Towns leads the Wolves.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Mavs -4½ -109
It’s been a strong start to the season for the Mavericks (3-2), who took the Lakers to overtime two night ago. Tonight, Dallas will go into Cleveland to take on the Cavaliers (2-3).
That overtime loss to Los Angeles was one of just two Dallas losses, with the other coming in a two-point game against a strong Portland team. The Mavericks have been able to take down the Pelicans, Wizards, and Nuggets so far this season.
On average, the Mavericks are scoring 113.8 points per game while allowing 112.4 points per game.
Of the star duos in the NBA, the pair of Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis are often forgotten behind the offerings of the Lakers, Clippers, or Rockets. However, the Dallas duo has been very strong. While Porzingis leads the team with two blocks per game in addition to his 21 points per game, Doncic leads the Mavs with 26.2 points, 9.6 rebounds, 8.4 assists, and 1.8 steals per game.
The Cavaliers have an interesting collection of talents, but they’re currently trying to get back to .500. Most recently, Cleveland lost to Indiana after having beaten the Pacers earlier in the season.
On average, the Cavaliers are scoring 103.8 points per game while allowing 107 points per game.
Kevin Love is back to averaging a double-double so far this year with his 17.2 points and 16.8 rebounds per contest. Tristan Thompson is also off to a solid start with 17.6 points and 11.4 rebounds per game.
|11-03-19||Kings +1 v. Knicks||113-92||Win||100||9 h 28 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on Kings +1 -114
An early-evening NBA matchup will feature two of the worst teams in the league when the Knicks (1-5) host the Kings (1-5) in New York. No matter what, one of these squads will start the year with just one win out of their first seven games.
After dropping their first five contests of the season, Sacramento was able to scrape together their first victory in a one-point game against a strong Utah team. De’Aaron Fox led the Kings in that contest with his game-high 25 points.
On average, the Kings are scoring 99.2 points per game and allowing 113.2 points per game.
Fox leads the team on the season with his 17.7 points per game in addition to his 6.3 assists and 3.8 rebounds per contest. Buddy Hield struggled from the three-point line in the team’s win over the Jazz, but he’s normally very capable from that range, which is why he’s averaging 16.3 points per game.
Since defeating Chicago towards the end of October, the Knicks have lost two straight to Orlando and Boston. In that contest against the Magic, New York only scored 83 points.
On average, the Knicks are scoring 100.8 points per game while allowing 108 points per game.
While Julius Randle leads New York in both rebounds, with 11 per game, and assists, with five per game, young RJ Barrett is the team’s leading scorer with 17.7 points per game.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Vikings/Chiefs under48½ -110
When the Chiefs (5-3) host the Vikings (6-2) in Kansas City, they’ll do so without their MVP at quarterback yet again as he recovers from a kneecap dislocation. The over/under is set at 48.5 points.
After a touchy start with some turmoil between offensive stars, the Vikings have ripped off four-straight wins while holding opponents to 20 points or fewer in three of the four. In their most recent game, which came against Washington, Minnesota was unable to reach 20 points.
On average, the Vikings are scoring 26 points per game on 409 yards of offense while allowing 17 points per game on 336 yards.
Minnesota has the benefit of offensive firepower between the likes of Stefon Diggs (706 yards, four TDs) and Dalvin Cook (823 yards, nine TDs), but quarterback Kirk Cousins has only managed to throw for 254 yards per game. Cook has been better of late, throwing for 13 touchdowns and three picks.
The Kansas City offense has been OK without Mahomes, but they’re not the same without the MVP. Against Green Bay last week, Kansas City scored 24 points. They’ll be facing another daunting defense against Minnesota this week.
On average, the Chiefs are scoring 28 points per game on 403 yards of offense while allowing 23 points per game on 401 yards.
While completing 60.7% of his passes, backup Matt Moore has thrown for 384 yards with three touchdowns and no picks.

Another NFL game in an international venue will provide us with some clarity within the AFC South when the Texans (5-3) and Jaguars (4-4) face off in London. The over/under is set at 46.5 points.
Houston has been a difficult team to figure out. Behind an offensive line that always has him running for his life, quarterback Deshaun Watson has been good enough to earn his team three wins over their last four, with the only loss coming to the division-leading Colts.
On average, the Texans are scoring 27 points per game on 412 yards of offense while allowing 24 points per game on 378 yards.
Watson, who’s been sacked 24 times, has been impressive on his way to 2,231 passing yards, 16 touchdowns, and five interceptions. As one of the league’s best receivers, DeAndre Hopkins has caught 60 balls for 617 yards and three TDs.

The combination of Gardner Minshew and DJ Charke Jr. has been explosive for Jacksonville. Of Minshew’s 1,976 yards and 13 touchdowns (two picks), Charke has racked up 660 yards and six touchdowns.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Wild -105
The Blues (8-3-3, 19 points) have recently taken ownership of the top spot in the Central Division. If they want to extend that lead, they’ll need to earn a result against the Wild (4-9-0, 8 points) in Minnesota.
The defending champs are riding a three-game winning streak, but they’ll be playing their second game in as many days after yesterday’s 4-3 win over Columbus. St. Louis also played on October 30th, which makes tonight’s contest their third in four days.
On average, the Blues are scoring 3.07 goals per game (17th) while allowing 3.00 goals per game (tied for 13th).

50* Powerhouse Play on Oregon -4 -109
The #7 Oregon Ducks (7-1) are the Pac-12’s best chance of having a representative in the College Football Playoff. The Ducks will face one of their toughest tasks of the season when they go on the road to take on the USC Trojans (5-3) Saturday evening.
Oregon’s lone loss of the season came on a neutral site game to open the year when they allowed #16 Auburn to earn a comeback victory. Since then, the Ducks haven’t lost. Oregon recently survived two tough games against #25 Washington and then Washington State.
On average, the Ducks are scoring 36 points per game on 466 yards of offense while allowing 15 points per game on 308 yards.
Quarterback Justin Herbert has been getting plenty of NFL draft chatter, and for good reason. On the year, Herbert has thrown for 2,104 yards with 21 touchdowns and just one interception while completing 68.3% of his passes.

A team with championship aspirations will face off with a team on the rebuild tonight when the Nuggets (3-2) head into Orlando to take on the Magic (2-3). The over/under is set at 202 points.
Since a strong 3-0 start to the season, Denver has dropped two straight to Dallas and New Orleans. Including an overtime win against Phoenix, the Nuggets have failed to score more than 108 points through their first five games.
While the Nuggets have six scorers averaging double-digit points, no players has more than Jamal Murray’s 17.8 points per game. Nikola Jokic is having the largest all-around impact with his 15 points, 11.2 rebounds, and 6.4 assists per game.
The Nuggets are averaging 106 points per game and allowing 106.4 points per game.
Orlando is aiming to get back to .500 after dropping three of their last four, and it isn’t likely they’ll do so if they allow Denver to get over 100 points. Through five games, the Magic have yet to score more than 99 points.
Only three Orlando players are averaging at least 10 points, led by Evan Fournier’s 18 points per game.

One of the NHL’s best is set to take on one of the NHL’s worst this evening when the Bruins (9-1-2, 20 points) host the Senators (3-7-1, 7 points) in Boston.
Ottawa is currently the sole owner of last place in the Atlantic Division, looking up at everyone from the nine-point Red Wings to the division-leading Bruins.

On average, the Senators are scoring 2.64 goals per game (24th) while allowing 3.27 goals per game (19th).
Connor Brown, who leads the team with nine assists and 10 points, added to his totals with a goal and assist against San Jose. Left winger Nick Paul was able to score two goals and add an assist in that contest.
Ottawa is also coming off a ton of rest, having last played on October 27th.

With first overall pick Zion Williamson yet to return from injury, New Orleans dropped their first four games of the season. However, they’re fresh off their first win of the year in which they cruised to victory over a strong Nuggets team.
Brandon Ingram, Jahlil Okafor, and Frank Jackson all pitched in with at least 21 points. Okafor’s 26-point performance was the best on the night, and helped him earn a plus/minus of +19. On the season, Ingram is leading the way with a team-high 26.8 points and 8.2 rebounds per game.
Oklahoma City got in on the Warriors-bashing parade with a 120-92 win, but that’s been their only victory of this young season. Since then, the Thunder have lost a pair of games to Houston and Portland.
The Thunder are trying to win with a true team effort. While Shai Alexander leads the team with 21.6 point per game, Steven Adams is tops on the team with 11.8 rebounds per game, and Dennis Schroder has a team-high 4.4 rebounds per game.

An outlier in Oregon State’s season was their most recent victory, which was a 21-17 win over California. In the two games prior, the Beavers allowed 52 points to #15 Utah and defeated UCLA in a game that had a combined 79 points scored.

UNLV is coming off two straight losses to Fresno State and San Diego State, both of which came after a 34-10 victory over Vanderbilt. The Rebels haven’t been able to limit opposing offenses with much success. For example, Wyoming was able to put up 53 on UNLV.

With 793 yards and seven touchdowns, running back Charles Williams heads up the UNLV ground game. Receiver Randal Grimes is the team’s biggest offensive threat with 474 yards and five touchdowns through the air.

After a bounce-back 13-10 win over Northwestern, Nebraska dropped back-to-back games against Minnesota and Indiana. Although the Cornhuskers lost by a touchdown in that contest against Indiana, they managed to put up 31 points.
On average, Nebraska is scoring 26 points per game on 413 yards of offense while allowing 29 points per game on 400 yards.
Nebraska should have starting quarterback Adrian Martinez back on the field after missing time due to injury. On the season, Martinez has thrown for 1,245 yards, seven touchdowns, and five interceptions.
After a big win over Maryland a few weeks ago, Purdue has dropped two straight to #23 Iowa and Illinois. If Rondale Moore is able to play meaningful minutes at the running back position, the Boilermakers will like their chances to score points against a vulnerable Nebraska defense.
On average, the Boilermakers are scoring 24 points per game on 369 yards of offense while allowing 29 points per game on 412 yards.

After starting the season with a record of 2-4, the Bulls have gained some momentum with wins over Akron and Central Michigan. Defensively, Buffalo has been very good. In five of their eight games, the Bulls have held their opponent to 22 points or fewer.
On average, the Bulls are scoring 26 points per game on 355 yards of offense while allowing 23 points per game on 304 yards.
A strong Buffalo defense that earned five turnovers against Central Michigan will aim to once again assist an offense that hasn’t been very explosive. The Bulls only have one receiver with more than 162 yards.
Eastern Michigan started the year strong but has most recently lost three of its last four games. In each of their last two games, the Eagles scored 34 points.
On average, Eastern Michigan is scoring 28 points per game on 398 yards of offense while allowing 32 points per game on 443 yards.

Central Division rivals are set to take the ice this evening in Colorado as the Avalanche (8-2-2, 18 points) will be hosting the Stars (5-8-1, 11 points).
Dallas is just third from the bottom in the division, but they’ve picked up their play significantly after starting with only a single win in the team’s first nine games. Since then, the Stars have won four of their last five, including a 6-3 victory over the Wild three days ago.

The Bucks haven’t faced the easiest schedule in the world to start the 2019-20 season, but they would have expected better results. Although Milwaukee earned wins over Houston and Cleveland, they fell to Miami and Boston.
Thus far, the Bucks are averaging 119.3 points per game while allowing 117.5 points per game.
Khris Middleton has gotten off to a strong start with 20.8 points per game, but this is Giannis Antetokounmpo’s team, and he’s showing it. With 23.8 points, 13.5 rebounds, and eight assists per game, Giannis leads the Bucks in all three categories.
Generally speaking, the Magic have been involved in low-scoring affairs so far this season. Orlando’s two wins came in a 94-85 win over Cleveland and a 95-83 win over the Knicks. In their four games, the Magic have yet to score 100 points.
On average, the Magic are scoring 95.8 points per game while allowing 93.8 points per game.

Sitting third from the bottom in the Metropolitan Division, the Flyers are in desperate need of a win after dropping two straight to the Islanders and Penguins. Philadelphia’s performance against Pittsburgh was less than impressive, as they allowed seven goals.
On average, the Flyers are scoring 3.27 goals per game (13th) while allowing 3.36 goals per game (20th).
Center Travis Konecny has led the way for Philadelphia with his team-leading six goals, seven assists, and 13 points.

On average, the Cavaliers are scoring 106 points per game while allowing 108.3 points per game.
A lack of star power has allowed center Tristan Thompson to spread his wings. Thus far, Thompson is scoring a team-leading 20.3 points while reeling in 11.8 rebounds per game. Kevin Love has been productive as well, scoring 16 points and adding a team-leading 16.8 rebounds per game.
The Pacers finally got a win in a 118-108 game against Brooklyn after starting the season with three straight losses. Tonight’s game against Cleveland will be Indiana’s first home game since the season opener.

Earning an average of 119 points per game, San Antonio is able to lean on five double-digit scorers and two players averaging more than 20 points per game.

Sitting fifth in the Atlantic Division, the Canadiens are winners of their last two contests with a 5-2 victory over Toronto before defeating the Coyotes by a score of 4-1. As they get set for their second straight road game, Montreal could use a nice winning streak to help them in the race with the Maple Leafs and Panthers.
On average, the Canadiens are scoring 3.67 goals per game (5th) while allowing 3.00 goals per game (tied for 15th).
Right winger Brendan Gallagher has scored a team-high six goals, none of which came on the power play, and leads Montreal with 11 points.
Vegas is tied with Anaheim for third in the Pacific Division, looking up at Edmonton and Vancouver. The Golden Knights have now won four of their last six, with two wins coming via a shootout.
On average, the Golden Knights are scoring 3.08 goals per game (15th) while allowing 2.77 goals per game (12th).
Right winger Mark Stone has been the most productive man on the ice for Vegas. With seven goals, nine assists, and 16 points, Stone leads the Golden Knights in all categories.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on West Virginia/Baylor over56 -110
The well-rested #12 Baylor Bears (7-0) will be aiming to extend their lead in the Big 12 this evening when they host the West Virginia Mountaineers (3-4). The over/under is set at 56 points.
Let’s start with the Mountaineers, who’ve lost three straight to tough competition. Although West Virginia only scored 14 points in each of their games against #5 Oklahoma and Iowa State, they managed to put up 31 points against a strong #11 Texas team.
On average, the Mountaineers are scoring 23 points per game on 314 yards of offense while allowing 33 points per game on 407 yards.
West Virginia’s biggest weakness is the running game. With running backs Kennedy McCoy and Leddie Brown leading the charge, the Mountaineers don’t have a single rusher over 200 yards. However, quarterback Austin Kendall has thrown for 1,429 yards and 11 TDs with seven picks.
The Baylor Bears coming to town must be a scary sight for a West Virginia team that’s allowing 33 points a game. Thus far, the high-flying Baylor offense has been held to less than 31 points just twice this season. Although they haven’t played a ranked team, the Bears have beaten every team that’s lined up in front of them this year.
On average, Baylor is scoring 39 points per game on 484 yards of offense while allowing 19 points per game on 358 yards.
Throwing to a pair of 500-yard receivers, quarterback Charlie Brewer has been a beast all season. By completing 66.3% of his passes, Brewer has thrown for 1,866 yards, 12 touchdowns, and three interceptions.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Jazz -1½ -105
The Clippers (3-1) are the favorites to win the Western Conference as well as the NBA Finals, but there’s plenty of good competition aiming for an upset. One of those good competitors is a talented Jazz team (3-1). Tonight, the Jazz are hoping to prove they can play with anyone when they host Los Angeles.
After opening the season with a pair of relatively comfortable wins over the Lakers and Warriors, the Clippers fell to the Suns before rebounding against Charlotte with a 111-96 victory.
With a 52% field goal percentage, the Clippers are averaging 121.5 points per game while holding their competition to 112.5 points per game.
There’s a sharp drop off in scoring without Paul George on the floor for Los Angeles. Kawhi Leonard, Lou Williams, and Montrezl Harrell are all averaging at least 20 points per game, but the next scorer on the list is Landry Shamet, who’s scoring just 10.3 points per game.
The Jazz have every chance to compete for a Western Conference championship, especially if Donovan Mitchell can take the next step towards superstardom. So far, he’s helped Utah to three wins out of four, with only a loss to the Lakers blemishing the record.
Mitchell, who’s averaging 24 points, five rebounds, and 3.3 assists per game, is getting help from CJ McCollum, who’s scoring 23.7 points per game of his own.
The most impressive aspect of the Jazz in the early part of the season is their ability to hold all four opponents to 95 points or fewer.
|10-30-19||Panthers v. Avalanche -130||4-3||Loss||-130||13 h 47 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on Avalanche -130
Two of the league’s better teams are set to face off this evening when the Avalanche (8-2-1, 17 points) host the Panthers (5-3-4, 14 points) in Colorado.
Florida has the misfortune of playing in the Atlantic Division alongside the Bruins and Sabres, both of whom have 20 points, but they’re currently sitting in fourth. The Panthers have given up plenty of goals lately while winning just one of their last three, most recently allowing seven in a loss to Vancouver.
On average, the Panthers are scoring 3.50 goals per game (tied for 7th) while allowing 3.75 goals per game (29th).
Struggling to keep the puck out of their own net, the Panthers have relied on outscoring opponents to win. In that endeavor, Aleksander Barkov has been an integral player with his 13 assists.
The Avalanche won their first five games of the season, and have recently won three of their last five contests to earn them a tie for the top spot in the Central Division. Through 11 games, Colorado has proven that it’s going to be one of the most explosive offensive teams in the NHL.
On average, the Avalanche are scoring 4.00 goals per game (tied for 1st) while allowing 2.73 goals per game (11th).
Nathan McKinnon has been the most consistent player for the Avalanche. Thus far, McKinnon has scored six goals and added nine assists for 15 points, all of which are team highs.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Nationals +125
After another come-from-behind win on the road, the Nationals (93-69) won Game 6 by a score of 7-2 to send the World Series to a deciding Game 7. It all boils down to this as the Nationals now go into Houston one last time for a showdown with the Astros (107-55).
Juan Soto and Anthony Rendon will be looking to stay hot after delivering a Game 6 win on the back of a masterful start from Stephen Strasburg. Soto hit the go-ahead home run, and Rendon did just about everything else by going 3-for-4 and earning five RBIs.
On the mound we’ll have Nationals right-hander Max Scherzer (11-7, 2.92 ERA) up against Astros right-hander Zack Greinke (18-5, 2.93 ERA).
It must feel like destiny for Scherzer, who was unable to pitch in a Game 5 he was scheduled to start after neck and back spasms rendered him unavailable. With 34 strikeouts in 25 October innings, Scherzer owns a 2.16 ERA in his five appearances this postseason.
Featuring a five-pitch arsenal, Greinke will hope for similar results from his Game 3 outing. In that contest, Greinke was able to put out fires throughout his 4 2/3 inning start in which 10 Nationals reached base but only one run was scored.
|10-30-19||Blazers -1 v. Thunder||102-99||Win||100||12 h 54 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on Blazers -1 -109
Through four games of the NBA season, the Trail Blazers (2-2) are a .500 team. Tonight, Portland will travel into Oklahoma City to take on the Thunder (1-3).
Portland is now set for its third-straight road game after going 2-1 against the Kings, Mavericks, and Spurs, with their only loss coming in the second game of a back-to-back against San Antonio. Before this road trip, the Blazers opened the season with a 108-100 loss to Denver.
On average, the Blazer are scoring 113.3 points and allowing 113 points per game.
The scoring duo of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum has picked up where it left off a season ago. So far, Lillard is averaging 30.8 points per game while McCollum is adding another 23.3 points per game.
Hassan Whiteside has gotten off to a great start for Portland, as he’s dominated the boards with 12.3 rebounds per game while pitching in offensively with 13 points per contest.
The Thunder haven’t found much success in this early season. Of their three losses, Oklahoma City failed to score more than a 95 points in two of them. On average, the Thunder are scoring 103 points per game while allowing 101.3 points.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has been the top scorer for Oklahoma City, averaging 23.8 points per game. The only other Thunder player over 14 points per game is Danilo Gallinari, who’s scoring 19.3 points per game.

50* Powerhouse Play on Bucks/Celtics under223 -110
As the Celtics (2-1) continue their opening stretch of games against Eastern Conference contenders, they’ll host the Bucks (2-1) in Boston this evening. The over/under is set at 223 points.
Milwaukee kicked off the season with a 117-111 win over Houston before falling to Miami in an overtime contest. The Bucks then rebounded with a 129-point performance in a victory against Cleveland two days ago.
Thus far, the Bucks are averaging 124 points while allowing 118 points per game.
As expected, Giannis Antetokounmpo is the main man in Milwaukee. With 24.3 points, 13.3 rebounds, and nine assists per game, the Greek Freak leads the Bucks in all three categories. Khris Middleton is the second scoring option for the Bucks right now, as he’s averaging 19 points per game alongside his 6.7 rebounds per contest.
The Celtics opened the season against two teams that figure to compete for some of the higher playoff seeds. After falling to Philadelphia in the season opener, Boston took down Toronto by a score of 112-106. With a good defensive performance, the Celtics held the Knicks to fewer than 100 points in a win on Monday.
A balanced Boston team features a slew of scorers, but without anyone who figures to compete for a scoring title. The Celtics can boast four players with at least 16 points per game between Kemba Walker (22 points), Jayson Tatum (20.3 points), Jaylen Brown (17.3), and Gordon Hayward (16.3 points).

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Oilers +140
The Oilers (8-4-1, 17 points) have encountered their first rough patch of the season, and they’ll try to get back on track on the road against the Blue Jackets (5-4-2, 12 points) in Columbus this evening.
Despite losing four of their last five games, Edmonton still remains in the lead of the Pacific Division with Vegas and Anaheim trailing behind by a point. The Oilers lost both of their past two contests while being outscored 9-3.
On average, the Oilers are scoring 2.85 goals per game (19th) while allowing 2.69 goals per game (9th).
Even with this poor stretch of team performances, the duo of Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl are producing at a high level. While McDavid leads Edmonton with 16 assists, Draisaitl leads the team with 10 goals and 22 points.
With three losses out of their last five, the Blue Jackets are in danger of letting the four top teams in the Metropolitan Division get away from them. The Islanders and Penguins are both four-points clear of Columbus.
On average, the Blue Jackets are scoring 2.73 goals per game (21st) while allowing 3.55 goals per game (26th).
The Blue Jackets haven’t had an offensive star to rely on so far this season. With five goals and seven assists, Pierre-Luc Dubois leads the team.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Nationals +165
If the Astros (107-55) can earn the first home victory of the series, they’ll become World Series Champions. We’ll find out if they can capitalize on their 3-2 lead tonight when they host the Nationals (93-69) in Houston.
Game 5 never felt like a fair contest once Washington pitcher Max Scherzer was unable to go. So, rather than a Game 1 rematch, Gerrit Cole was able to dominate the game while fill-in pitcher Joe Ross struggled against a strong Houston offense.
After three straight losses, the Nationals will now aim to get back on track by sending out right-hander Stephen Strasburg (18-6, 3.32). With an ERA of 1.93 this October and a career ERA of 1.34 in his postseason career, there aren’t many pitchers Washington would rather have on the mound.
Strasburg has already defeated the Astros once in this World Series by settling in after a first-inning home run to throw six innings of two-run ball in a Game 2 victory.
Opposite Strasburg will be Astros co-ace Justin Verlander (21-6, 2.58 ERA). With a loss in Game 2, the Houston right-hander became the first pitcher in MLB history to lose his first five decisions in the World Series. In six career World Series starts, Verlander is 0-5 with a 5.73 ERA.

In what will be their fifth home game in a row, the Rangers (3-5-1, 7 points) are set to host the Lightning (5-3-2, 12 points) in New York this evening.
Tampa Bay enters this contest fresh off a three-game home stand in which they lost two, the last of which came in overtime. In that stretch, the Lightning were outscored 11-7. Tampa Bay currently sits fifth in the Atlantic Division, level on points with Montreal.
On average, the Lightning are scoring 3.30 goals per game (10th) while allowing 3.20 goals per game (20th).
Tampa Bay has yet to have anyone step up and claim the role of consistent goal scorer, but center Steven Stamkos is the most likely man to do it. So far, Stamkos leads the team with five goals (three on the power play) and 11 assists.
The Rangers lost their most recent game to Boston, but they’ve been scoring goals lately. Over the past two games, New York has netted 10 goals.
On average, the Rangers are scoring 3.22 goals per game (14th) while allowing 3.78 goals per game (tied for 29th).
Center Mika Zibanejad continued to be at the forefront of the Rangers attack. So far, Zibanejad has scored four goals and leads the team with seven assists and 11 points.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Heat -8 -105
Through three games, the Hawks (2-1) and Heat (2-1) have identical records. Tonight, the Heat are set to host the Hawks in Miami.
Atlanta opened the season with a pair of wins over Detroit and Orlando. Most recently, the Hawks took their first loss in a tight 105-103 game against Philadelphia. With a win this evening, the Hawks would take control of the Southeast division.
Through three games, Trae Young has been exceptional for Atlanta. Young leads the team in both points, with 34 points per game, and assists, with nine per game. However, it’s hard to find a second scorer on the Hawks right now. John Collins, who leads the team with 10 boards per game, is second on the team with 14.3 points per game.
The Heat have followed the same path to 2-1 as the Hawks by winning their first two contests before dropping the third. It’s easier to forgive Miami’s loss, though, as it came in the second game of a back-to-back.
In the Heat’s overtime win against Milwaukee, Goran Dragic led the team in scoring from the bench with 25 points. On the season, Dragic is tied with Justice Winslow as the second-leading scorer with 19 points per game.
Playing less than 32 minutes per game, Kendrick Nunn leads Miami with 22.3 points per game.

50* Powerhouse Play on Capitals +105
The Maple Leafs (6-5-2, 14 points) certainly haven’t been bad through the opening segment of the NHL season, but the Capitals (8-2-3, 19 points) have been significantly better. Tonight, these two teams will face off in Toronto.
With five wins out of their last six games, Washington has vaulted itself into first place in the Metropolitan Division with three points to spare. Most recently, the Capitals outscored Vancouver 6-5 to win a tight game away from home.
On average, the Capitals are scoring 3.77 goals per game (3rd) while allowing 3.31 goals per game (22nd).
Helped by three power play goals, Alex Ovechkin leads Washington with nine goals on the season. Yet the star of the show has been defenseman John Carlson, who leads the team with 16 assists and 21 points.
The Maple Leafs got off to a similar start to the season, but they’ve not been able to keep up their level of play recently. With one win out of their last four games, Toronto has slipped into the middle of the pack in the Atlantic Division.
On average, the Maple Leafs are scoring 3.54 goals per game (6th) while allowing 3.38 goals per game (24th).
While center Auston Matthews leads the team with nine goals, center Mitch Marner is tops on the team with 12 assists and 15 points.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Nuggets/Kings over218½ -109
As the Kings (0-3) go in search of their first win of the season, they’ll host the Nuggets (2-0) in Sacramento this evening. The over/under is set at 218.5 points.
The undefeated Nuggets have scored exactly 108 points in each of their first two games. Most recently, Denver defeated the Suns by a single point in overtime.
In that Phoenix game, Jamal Murray led all Nuggets players with 27 points. Murray also added seven rebounds and three assists on his way to a +3 plus/minus.
However, the star of the game was Nikola Jokic, who earned a triple-double with 23 points, 14 rebounds, and 12 assists.
The winless Kings are allowing 119.7 points per game while scoring an average of just 96 points. Most recently, Sacramento lost to Utah by a score of 113-81 with a dreadful shooting performance that included shooting 37% from the field and 26.9% from three.
When you only score 81 points, you likely don’t have any big-time scorers. That was certainly the case for the Kings, who only had two players in double digits – Dewayne Dedmond (11 points) and Bogdan Bogdanovic (10 points).
The Nuggets should be able to score relatively easily on a poor Sacramento defense, and the Kings aren’t likely to be as bad shooting the basketball as they were two days ago.

One of the better teams in the West is set to face off with a perennial powerhouse in the conference as the Blazers (2-1) go into San Antonio to take on the Spurs (2-0). The over/under is set at 220 points.
Since losing to the Nuggets in the season opener, Portland has responded with a pair of wins over Sacramento and Dallas. In those two recent games, the Trail Blazers scored 122 and 121 points. On average, the Blazers are scoring 114.3 points per game while allowing 113 points per game.
Early in the season, Portland appears to have a very strong trio in the starting lineup. While CJ McCollum offers a second scoring option with 22 points per game, Damian Lillard leads the team with 31.7 points and six assists per game. The surprise has been Hassan Whiteside, who’s been a beast in the post with 14.7 points and 14 rebounds per game.
The ever-steady Spurs opened the year with wins over the Knicks and Wizards, scoring 120 and then 124 points. On average, San Antonio is scoring 122 points per game while allowing 116.5 points per game.
The Spurs offer a talented trio of their own between LaMarcus Aldridge, who leads the team with 24.5 points per game, DeMar DeRozan, who is averaging 19.5 points per game, and Dejounte Murray, who leads the team with nine rebounds and five assists per game in addition to his 18.5 points.

It’s not often that you see a 2-4 team enter an NFL contest as a two-touchdown favorite, but that’s what we’ll get this evening when the Steelers (2-4) host the winless Dolphins (0-6) in Pittsburgh. The over/under is set at 42.5 points.
Miami started the season with a slew of dreadful performances, but they’ve managed to earn better results despite being unable to claim a victory. Most recently, the Dolphins lost to the Redskins by a single point before taking a 10-point loss in Buffalo.
On average, the Dolphins are scoring 11 points per game on 280 yards of offense while allowing 35 points per game on 423 yards.
Although nobody is expecting Miami’s offense to set the world on fire, they should continue to improve if the offensive line keeps performing well. Last week against Buffalo, the Dolphins rushed for more than 100 yards for the first time and didn’t allow quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick to get sacked.
The Steelers were winless through the first three games of the season, but they’ve picked up their play enough to win two of their last three contests, with their loss coming in overtime against a good Ravens team. Most recently, Pittsburgh took down the Chargers.
On average, Pittsburgh is scoring 21 points per game on 281 yards of offense while allowing 22 points per game on 377 yards.
After taking three weeks to recover from injury, quarterback Mason Rudolph looks ready to go. Rudolph looked relatively good before getting hurt, as he threw for 646 yards with seven TDs and two picks while completing 67% of his passes.

The winless Knicks (0-3) are set to host their second home game of the season this evening as they welcome the Bulls (1-2) to New York. The over/under is set at 223 points.
Since taking a tough, one-point loss to Charlotte to open the season, Chicago took down Memphis by eight and lost a 108-84 game that came as the second game in as many days. On average, the Bulls are scoring 106.3 points per game while allowing 112 points per game.
With 21.3 points per game, Zach LaVine leads all Bulls in scoring. It’s been a decent start to the year for LaVine, who also leads the team with five assists per game in addition to his 4.3 rebounds.
Lauri Markkanen offers the second part of Chicago’s one-two punch alongside LaVine. With 11.7 rebounds per game, Markkanen leads the Bulls on the boards.
New York managed just 95 points in their most recent game – a 118-95 loss to Boston – but it came on the latter end of a back-to-back. The night prior, the Knicks only lost by four points to Brooklyn.
It’s been a very bright start to the season for rookie RJ Barrett. Through his first three games, Barrett is averaging 21 points, five rebounds, and 2.7 assists per game.
Julius Randle has been another solid player for the Knicks, scoring an average of 16.3 points per game while bringing in a team-leading 10.7 rebounds.

Tonight, the Trail Blazers (1-1) will have the chance to hand the Mavericks (2-0) their first loss of this young season when they tip off in Dallas. The over/under will be set at 221 points.
Portland followed up a 108-100 opening night loss against Denver with a 122-112 win over Sacramento. Now, the Trail Blazers are set for their second road game in three days.
Against the Kings, both Damian Lillard and Hassan Whiteside earned a plus/minus of +23. Lillard finished the game with 35 points, five rebounds, and five assists. Whiteside was second on the Blazers in scoring with 22 points in addition to his nine rebounds and three assists.
In their two victories, Dallas scored 108 and then 123 points. A field goal percentage of 47.3% has allowed the Mavericks to outscore their opponents by seven and eight points.
Luka Doncic leads the Mavericks in nearly every major category with 29.5 points, 9.5 rebounds, and 6.5 assists per game. Against New Orleans, Kristaps Porzingis was a huge presence with 24 points, four rebounds, three assists, and five blocks.
On average, the Trail Blazers are allowing 110 points per game and the Mavericks are allowing 108 points per game.

Both the Kings (4-7-0, 8 points) and Blackhawks (2-5-2, 6 points) have gotten off to rough starts in the 2019-20 season. Tonight, they’ll face off against one another in Chicago.
Los Angeles will be playing its second game in two nights after taking a 5-1 loss in Minnesota yesterday. That was the team’s second straight loss after taking a 5-2 beating in St. Louis two nights prior. A bad beginning of the season has earned the Kings the last spot in the Pacific Division.
On average, the Kings are scoring 2.73 goals per game (tied for 20th) while allowing 4.00 goals per game (last in the NHL).
With four goals, seven assists, and 11 points, Anze Kopitar leads Los Angeles in all major offensive categories from the center position.
Worse than Los Angeles’ two-game losing streak is the four-game losing streak of the Blackhawks. In losses to Washington, Vegas, Philadelphia, and Carolina, Chicago has been outscored 15 to 5. With that current run of form, it’s no surprise to see Chicago in last place of the Central Division.
On average, the Blackhawks are scoring 2.22 goals per game (29th) while allowing 3.22 goals per game (20th).
Right winger Patrick Kane is tops on the Blackhawks with three goals, five assists, and eight points.

The earliest game of today’s NHL slate pits the Blues (5-3-3, 13 points) against the Red Wings (3-8-0 6 points) in Detroit.
Prior to yesterday’s 3-0 loss in Boston, St. Louis took down both Colorado and Los Angeles. Currently sitting third in the Central Division, a win today could pull the Blues level with Nashville in second place.
On average, the Blues are scoring 2.91 goals per game (17th) while allowing 3.09 goals per game (17th).
Center Brayden Schenn has been the biggest producer for St. Louis on the attack. In addition to his three assists, Schenn leads the Blues with eight goals and 11 points.
Jordan Bennington is the team’s top netminder right now by allowing 2.53 goals per game and earning a save percentage of .916.
A struggling Red Wings team has lost seven straight contests. Most recently, Detroit was shut out by Buffalo on Friday. In the Atlantic Division, Detroit sits above only Ottawa.
On average, the Red Wings are scoring 2.09 goals per game (30th) while allowing 3.64 goals per game (29th).
Right winger Anthony Mantha leads the Red Wings with seven goals and 11 points.

Coming off back-to-back losses, nobody is expecting the Browns (2-4) to go into Foxborough and take down the Patriots (7-0) when these two teams clash on Sunday afternoon. The over/under is set at 44.5 points.
After an embarrassing 31-3 loss to San Francisco, Cleveland kept it tight in a 32-28 loss to the Seahawks at home. A late-September win at Baltimore pulled the Browns level for the lead in the AFC North, but they’ve since fallen by the wayside.
On average, the Browns are scoring 20 points per game on 372 yards of offense while allowing 26 points on 394 yards.
Much of the Browns inability to get it going offensively comes down to Baker Mayfield, who hasn’t been protecting the ball. While throwing for 1,496 yards, Mayfield has completed just 56.6% of his passes for five touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
Going up against what has statistically been the league’s best defense, Mayfield will need to be better than he’s been all year.
The Patriots recently continued their flawless start to the season with a 33-0 trouncing of the Jets. New England has scored between 33 and 35 points in each of their last three games.
On average, the Patriots are scoring 32 points per game on 388 yards of offense while allowing seven points per game on 247 yards.
Completing 65.9% of his passes, Tom Brady has thrown for 1,992 yards with 11 touchdowns and four picks.

There hasn’t been a ton of offensive firepower throughout this 2019 season for either the Jets (1-5) or Jaguars (3-4). This afternoon, these two squads will face off in Jacksonville with the over/under set at 41 points.
New York followed up its lone win of the season over Dallas with a 33-0 demolition by the Patriots. In that New England game, quarterback Sam Darnold admitted to seeing ghosts as he threw for fewer than 100 yards and turned the ball over five times.
On average, the Jets are scoring 11 points per game on 236 yards of offense while allowing 26 points per game on 361 yards.
It hasn’t been a dream year for Darnold, who’s missed time with mono. On the season, the Jets QB has completed just 59% of his passes for 599 yards, three touchdowns, and five interceptions.
The Jaguars earned a 27-17 win over the Bengals last week, but own a record of 1-2 at home. On average, Jacksonville is scoring 21 points per game on 393 yards of offense while allowing 21 points per game on 380 yards.
If Jacksonville is explosive on offense, it’s likely because the ball is in DJ Chark Jr.’s hands. Of Chark’s 33 catches, 12 have gone for 20 yards or more. In total, Chark has racked up 581 receiving yards and five touchdowns.

50* Powerhouse Play on Eagles/Bills under42 -110
With last week’s loss at Dallas, the Eagles (3-4) tossed away a chance to take the lead in the NFC East. They’ll now have a tough matchup against a good Bills team (5-1) in Buffalo. The over/under is set at 42 points.
This will be Philadelphia’s third-straight game on the road, and the first two didn’t go according to plan. Before putting up just 10 points in Dallas, the Eagles lost a 38-20 contest in Minnesota. The offense hasn’t been very effective without the likes of DeSean Jackson and Jason Peters.
On average, the Eagles are scoring 24 points per game on 350 yards of offense while allowing 27 points per game on 377 yards.
Especially with Jackson sidelined, the Eagles have struggled to get production out of their receiving options. Zach Ertz leads all Philly pass catchers from the tight end position with 35 catches for 404 yards and one TD.
Other than a 16-10 loss to New England, the Bills have been perfect this season. Most recently, Buffalo took down Tennessee and Miami. The Bills have allowed 21 or fewer in every game this year.
On average, the Bills are scoring 20 points per game on 377 yards of offense while allowing 15 points on 306 yards.
Buffalo relies on its defense to win games, but quarterback Josh Allen has been good enough thus far. On the season, Allen has thrown for 1,324 yards with seven touchdowns and seven picks.

50* Powerhouse Play on Bengals/Rams under47½ -109
The winless Bengals (0-7) may very well be the worst team in the NFL. Saturday, they’ll have a chance to claim their first victory when they visit the Rams (4-3) in Los Angeles. The over/under is set at 47.5 points.
Cincinnati hasn’t been able to score more than 17 points over the past two weeks as they fell to the Ravens and then Jaguars. The Bengals have also failed to score more than 23 points in any contest this season.
On average, the Bengals are scoring 16 points per game on 327 yards of offense while allowing 27 points per game on 439 yards.
The biggest issue for Cincinnati’s offense is the lack of a running game. As the Bengals’ leading back, Joe Mixon has averaged just three yards per carry on his way to 254 yards and zero touchdowns through seven games.
An upgraded Rams defense held the Falcons to just 10 points in last week’s victory. That was a very welcome win after dropping three straight to the Bucs, Seahawks, and 49ers.
On average, the Rams are scoring 27 points per game on 385 yards of offense while allowing 23 points per game on 346 yards.
Quarterback Jared Goff has taken a step back from last season’s Super Bowl year. While completing 61.8% of his passes, Goff has thrown for 1,995 yards with nine touchdowns and seven picks.

The Flames (6-5-1, 13 points) and Jets (5-6-0, 10 points) both find themselves several points off the leaders in their respective divisions, so they’re aiming to play catchup in tonight’s Heritage Classic outdoor game in Regina, Sask.
Trailing the Pacific Division-leading Oilers, who have 17 points, Calgary now aims to earn their second victory in a row after claiming a 6-5 victory over the Panthers two days ago. The Flames have now allowed 11 goals over their past two games.
On average, the Flames are scoring 2.75 goals per game (21st) while allowing 3.08 goals per game (14th).
While center Elias Lindholm has racked up a team-high six goals in the team’s 12 games thus far, left winger Matthew Tkachuk is tops on the squad with six assists and 10 points.
Winnipeg has hit a rough stretch after a strong start to the season. Recently, the Jets followed up a 1-0 win over Edmonton with a 3-2 loss at home against the Kings.
On average, the Jets are scoring 2.55 goals per game (24th) while allowing 3.27 goals per game (21st).
Center Mark Scheifele has been a steady contributor for the Jets, scoring a team-high four goals and adding eight assists on his way to racking up 12 points.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Astros +106
It took three games, but the Astros (107-55) are finally on the board in the World Series. Tonight, Houston will attempt to tie the series as they get set for Game 4 in Washington.
With a 4-1 victory in Game three, the Astros ensured that both teams remain yet to win a game at home in this series.
In an effort to continue that streak this evening, Houston will send out right-hander Jose Urquidy (2-1, 3.95 ERA) to start. We last saw Urquidy on the mound in a relief appearance in the ALCS, pitching 2 2/3 innings and striking out five batters. Urquidy’s last start came in late September when he pitched six scoreless innings.
Opposite Urquidy will be Patrick Corbin (14-7, 3.25 ERA). The Nationals left-hander hasn’t had the smoothest of postseasons, posting an ERA of 6.91. In his last start, Corbin gave up four runs in five innings against the Cardinals in the NLCS.
In three career starts against the Astros, Corbin is 2-1 with a 5.21 ERA.
Houston will be hoping for another big performance out of Michael Brantley, who went 2-for-4 with a pair of RBIs in the Astros victory last night.

Two teams sitting at the bottom of their respective divisions will be hoping to get out of the basement with a win this evening as the Kings (4-6-0, 8 points) take on the Wild (3-7-0, 6 points) in Minnesota.
Los Angeles lost a 5-2 contest against the Blues in their last game, but won both their previous games against the Flames and Jets. As a team, the Kings have looked less than solid on defense.
On average, the Kings are scoring 2.90 goals per game (18th) while allowing 3.90 goals per game (last in the NHL).
Anze Kopitar continues to lead this Kings team from the center position. With a team-high four goals and seven assists, Kopitar leads L.A. with 11 points.
The Wild have followed a similar pattern to that of Los Angeles recently. After two wins over Montreal and Edmonton, Minnesota fell to Nashville 4-0 in their last contest. The Wild are struggling on both ends of the ice.
On average, the Wild are scoring 2.10 goals per game (29th) while allowing 3.60 goals per game (tied for 27th).
A mediocre Minnesota offense has been led by defenseman Brad Hunt, who’s scored a team-high four goals, two of which came on the power play, on his way to racking up a team-high six points.

50* Powerhouse Play on Notre Dame/Michigan under52 -110
Saturday’s premier matchup figures to be the #8 Notre Dame Fighting Irish (5-1) going into the Big House to take on the #19 Michigan Wolverines (5-2). The over/under is set at 52 points.
Since Notre Dame’s loss to #3 Georgia, the Irish have ripped off three straight victories. Most recently, Notre Dame took down USC by a score of 30-27.
On average, the Fighting Irish are scoring 39 points per game on 450 yards of offense, but they’ve only hit that point total once in the past four games. Defensively, Notre Dame is allowing just 17 points per game on 346 yards.
Completing 63.2% of his passes, Ian Book has been very good for the Fighting Irish at quarterback. On the season, Book has thrown for 1,419 yards while tossing 14 touchdowns and two interceptions. Averaging seven yards per carry, running back Tony Jones Jr. has rushed for 557 yards and four TDs.
Michigan has five wins in seven games, but they’ve failed to beat the toughest competition on the schedule. Before last week’s 28-21 loss to #7 Penn State, the Wolverines lost to #13 Wisconsin by a score of 35-14.
On average, the Wolverines are scoring 29 points per game on 391 yards of offense while allowing 19 points on 283 yards.
At quarterback, Shea Patterson leads the Michigan offense. Through seven games, Patterson has thrown for 1,522 yards, nine touchdowns, and four picks.

With both teams playing the second game of a back-to-back this evening, the Knicks (0-2) are looking for their first win against the Celtics (1-1) in New York. The over/under is set at 212.5 points.
Boston followed up an opening night loss to the 76ers with a 112-106 win over the Raptors yesterday. The performance on the offensive end of the floor was a big step up from the Philly game, in which they managed just 93 points.
Against Toronto, the Celtics had three scorers over 20 points. While Kemba Walker scored 22, Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown led the way with 25 points, nine rebounds, and four assists each.
Tatum led the way from the three-point line, making four of his seven attempts.
The Knicks will play their first home game of the season after losing on the road against San Antonio and Brooklyn. New York was competitive in both contests, scoring at least 109 points in each.
Against the Nets, six Knicks were in double digits. Allonzo Trier led all New York players with 22 points from the bench. Knicks fans will be excited to see RJ Barrett lead the starters with 16 points in addition to his three rebounds, three assists, and six steals.

50* Powerhouse Play on Missouri/Kentucky under45 -110
The Missouri Tigers (5-2) threw away what’s been a great season with a 21-14 loss at the hands of Vanderbilt last week. Saturday night, Missouri will try to get back on track on the road against the Kentucky Wildcats (3-4). The over/under is set at 45 points.
Although the Tigers have won five of their seven games, all five have come at home while their two losses have been on the road. Missouri’s 14-point dud against Vanderbilt showed a weak spot in an otherwise daunting passing attack.
On average, the Tigers are scoring 35 points per game on 448 yards of offense while allowing 17 points on 270 yards.
In addition to a strong defense, Missouri is led by a quarterback in Kelly Bryant who’s thrown for 1,715 yards, 13 touchdowns, and five interceptions. However, Bryant is coming off his worst game of the season in which he threw for just 140 yards.
Kentucky is coming off a loss, but they held #10 Georgia to just 21 points of offense in that contest. Before the Georgia game, the Wildcats won a 24-20 game over Arkansas.
On average, the Wildcats are scoring 20 points per game on 354 yards of offense while allowing 23 points per game on 364 yards.
Kentucky hasn’t been very explosive on offense throughout the season. The team’s leading receiver, Lynn Bowden Jr., has only 348 yards and one touchdown.

50* Powerhouse Play on Arkansas/Alabama under56½ -110
It hardly seems fair that the Arkansas Razorbacks (2-5) have to go into Tuscaloosa to take on the #1 Alabama Crimson Tide (7-0), yet these two squads will go head to head Saturday. The over/under is set at 56.5 points.
The Razorbacks are entering this contest on the back of a four-game losing streak, including a 31-24 loss to San Jose State. Most recently, Arkansas managed just 10 points against #11 Auburn.
On average, the Razorbacks are scoring 25 points per game on 385 yards of offense while allowing 31 points on 412 yards.
Ben Hicks has been at the helm for this Arkansas offense over the past three game and has struggled to get the offense rolling. Completing just 50.4% of his passes, the Razorbacks quarterback has thrown for 692 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception.
Alabama has yet to play some of their toughest opponents of the season, but they’ve beaten everyone that’s lined up in front of them. Most recently, the Crimson Tide defeated Tennessee 35-13.
On average, the Crimson Tide are scoring 49 points per game on 513 yards of offense while allowing 16 points per game on 321 yards.
The Alabama offense will get the opportunity to prove themselves as a unit rather than a quarterback-dependent team with starter Tua Tagovailoa out injured. Sophomore Mac Jones will start at quarterback in his place.
Although Alabama is still a big favorite to win this contest, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the Crimson Tide offense take a step back.

Either the Heat (1-0) or the Bucks (1-0) will suffer their first loss early in the 2019-20 season when they face off against one another in a late afternoon game in Milwaukee. The over/under is set at 225.5 points.
Without Jimmy Butler, who Miami brought over the Philadelphia in the offseason, the Heat posted a 120-101 victory over the Grizzlies in the season opener.
Justice Winslow was able to take that game over, scoring 27 points and adding seven rebounds and seven assists on his way to a +22 plus/minus in 37 minutes on the floor. Kendrick Nunn was close behind Winslow with 24 points of his own.
As a team, Miami took just 18 three-pointers and made only seven.
The Heat will be going into Milwaukee without Butler, Dion Waiters, and James Johnson.
The Bucks didn’t have the most explosive offensive performance against Houston in their season opener, but they did enough to win by a score of 117-111.
Beyond Giannis Antetokounmpo, who dominated the game with 30 points, 13 rebounds, and 11 assists, the Bucks didn’t offer much in the way of scoring. No other player on the Milwaukee roster had more than 14 points in the contest.

With Saturday’s game versus the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors (4-3), the New Mexico Lobos (2-5) will try to begin digging themselves out of the basement of the Mountain West Conference.
Hawaii’s strong first half of the season came to a grinding halt with two straight losses to #14 Boise State and Air Force. In both games, the Rainbow Warriors gave up at least 56 points.
On average, the Rainbow Warriors are scoring 35 points per game on 475 yards of offense while allowing 36 points per game on 428 yards.
A dynamic Hawaii passing attack is led by quarterback Cole McDonald, who’s thrown for 2,284 yards with 23 touchdowns and 10 picks. The rushing attack is far inferior, with running back Miles Reed leading the team with just 273 yards and three touchdowns on the season.
New Mexico has lost four straight since the end of September while scoring 10 points in two of the contests and 21 points in the other two. On average, the Lobos are scoring 24 points per game on 417 yards of offense while allowing 37 points per game on 494 yards.
The New Mexico offense features a pair of solid running backs. Averaging 5.1 yards per carry, Ahmari Davis leads the team with 543 yards and four touchdowns. Averaging 6.3 yards per carry, Bryson Carroll has added another 444 yards and two touchdowns.

Ohio has won two of its last three games, the most impressive of which was a 21-20 overtime victory against Buffalo. On average, the Bobcats are scoring 30 points per game on 406 yards while allowing 31 points per game on 460 yards.
Coming off his highest-yardage game of the year, quarterback Nathan Rourke has thrown for 1,612 yards with 10 touchdowns and four interceptions. Rourke also happens to lead the team in rushing with 409 yards and six touchdowns.
Shane Hooks is Ohio’s most explosive receiver. Averaging 20.7 yards per reception, Hooks has caught 17 balls for 352 yards and three TDs.
Ball State has finally earned some momentum with three straight wins over Northern Illinois, Eastern Michigan, and Toledo. In each victory, the Cardinals held their opponents to a maximum of 23 points.
On average, Ball State is scoring 35 points per game on 454 yards of offense while allowing 28 points per game on 391 yards.

It’s been a rough first year for head coach Manny Diaz, who recently said his Miami Hurricanes (3-4) team is in a rebuild. Saturday, Miami will be on the road to take on the Pitt Panthers (5-2). The over/under is set at 44 points.
Miami recently followed up a strong win over #20 Virginia with a 28-21 overtime loss to Georgia Tech. Offense has been the issue for the Hurricanes, who haven’t scored more than 21 in three of their last four games.
On average, the Hurricanes are scoring 28 points on 409 yards of offense while allowing 20 points on 298 yards.
N’Kosi Perry has been relatively good at quarterback since taking over. Completing 59.8% of his passes, Perry has thrown for 871 yards with eight touchdowns and one pick so far.
Pittsburgh finds itself on a four-game winning streak that started with a win over #15 UCF. The Panthers have allowed 20 points or fewer in two of their last three games.
On average, the Pitt Panthers are scoring 22 points per game on 390 yards of offense while allowing 22 points per game on 302 yards.
Without a terribly productive rushing attack, quarterback Kenny Pickett leads the offense with 1,602 yards, eight touchdowns, and four picks.

In a Big Ten matchup, the Purdue Boilermakers (2-5) will try to pull level with the Illinois Fighting Illini (3-4) on Saturday afternoon. The over/under is set at 58.5 points.
It’s largely been a season to forget for Illinois, but last week marked a milestone victory for Lovie Smith’s squad as they upset #6 Wisconsin by a single point at home. Despite that big win, the Fighting Illini haven’t scored more than 25 in any of their past three contests.
On average, the Fighting Illini are scoring 30 points per game on 334 yards while allowing 30 points per game on 432 yards.
Quarterback Brandon Peters, who threw for 174 yards against Wisconsin, has completed just 56.1% of his passes for 971 yards with 12 touchdowns and four interceptions on the season.

At quarterback, Stephen Calvert leads the Liberty attack with 1,920 yards, 15 touchdowns, and three interceptions. Antonio Gandy-Golden has been on the receiving end of 43 of Calvert’s passes, racking up 877 yards and five TDs.
Rutgers is at the bottom of the Big Ten barrel and has been absolutely dreadful on offense. In their past four games, all of which have been losses, the Scarlet Knights have scored a combined 14 points. Rutgers was shut out in two of those games.
On average, the Scarlet Knights are scoring 11 points per game on 255 yards of offense while allowing 37 points per game on 449 yards.
A bad Rutgers offense is led by Isaih Pacheco, who’s rushed for 434 yards and four touchdowns in seven games.

On average, the Capitals are scoring 3.67 goals per game (3rd) while allowing 3.17 goals per game (18th).
The duo of Alex Ovechkin and defenseman John Carlson has been overwhelming for Washington this season. While Ovechkin leads the team with nine goals, Carlson has a team-high 16 assists and 21 points through the Capitals’ first 12 games.

Two teams looking for their first when will face off this evening when the Trail Blazers (0-1) take on the Kings (0-1) in Sacramento.
Portland is coming off a relatively close home loss to a good Nuggets team. The Blazers didn’t shoot well, making just 41.4% of their shots from the field, but they showed their scrappiness with nine steals in the game.
Damian Lillard led all scorers in the game with 32 points, including three three-pointers. Lillard also added eight assists and four rebounds.
Hassan Whiteside put in an efficient shift for Portland, snagging 19 rebounds and scoring 16 points on 6-of-7 shooting from the field.

Both having played seven games, the USC Trojans (4-3) and Colorado Buffaloes (3-4) have mirrored records, including in Pac-12 play, where USC has a 3-1 record. When they play under the lights on Friday night in Colorado, the over/under will be set at 63 points.
USC recently faced its toughest stretch of the season when they faced #10 Utah, #17 Washington, and #9 Notre Dame in three straight games. Although the Trojans only managed one win in that period, they followed it up with last week’s 41-14 domination of Arizona.
On average, the Trojans are scoring 31 points per game on 431 yards of offense while allowing 24 points per game on 416 yards.
Kedon Slovis, who’s back under center for USC, has thrown for 1,219 yards, nine touchdowns, and four interceptions this year. His two biggest weapons are Michael Pittman Jr., who’s caught 43 balls for 599 yards and five touchdowns, and Tyler Vaughns, who’s reeled in 42 passes for 534 yards and four touchdowns.
The Buffaloes are coming off three straight losses, one of which was a 45-3 pounding by #13 Oregon. On average, Colorado is scoring 27 points per game on 407 yards of offense while allowing 35 points per game on 482 yards.
USC will be chomping at the bit to face a Colorado defense that’s allowed at least 31 points in every game this season.

With an 0-2 series deficit and their backs against the wall, the Astros (107-55) are in desperate need of a win this evening against the Nationals (93-69) in Washington D.C.
After taking surprising losses in the first two contests despite sending out Gerrit Cole and Justin Verlander, Houston needs Zack Greinke (18-5, 2.93 ERA) now more than ever. When Greinke starts tonight, the Astros right-hander will get to show off his batting prowess. With three home runs and eight extra-base hits, Greinke led all pitchers from the plate this year.
Focusing on his arm, Greinke has been far from unhittable this postseason. In three starts, Greinke is 0-2 with a 6.43 ERA despite two solid performances his last two times out.
Right-hander Anibal Sanchez (11-8, 3.85 ERA) will start on the mound for the Nationals. In two October starts this year, Sanchez has posted an ERA of 0.71. Sanchez last appeared in the World Series in 2012, when he threw seven innings of two-run ball.
The Astros will be hoping for a good performance from Jose Altuve, who leads the team with 19 hits, a 3.58 average, and five home runs in addition to his eight RBIs in the postseason.

Both the Bulls (0-1) and Grizzlies (0-1) will aim to avoid an 0-2 start when they take on one another this evening in Memphis.
These two teams opened up the 2019-20 season Wednesday night on the road, and while they both lost, Chicago fell by only a single point. By a score of 126-125, Charlotte bested the Bulls while the Grizzlies lost in Miami by a score of 120-101.
Although the outcomes were the same, the Bulls managed to display a better a shooting performance in their matchup. With a 46.7% field goal percentage, Chicago outshot a Memphis team that made just 42.7% of their shots from the field.
For the Bulls, Lauri Markkanen was a beast from everywhere on the floor aside from the three-point line, where he was 1-of-7. In 34 minutes, the Chicago big man scored 35 points and pulled down 17 rebounds, five of which came on the offensive end.
Both Thaddeus Young and Coby White added 17 points each from the bench, which was more than any starter not named Markkanen.
Even without Jimmy Butler in uniform, the Heat cruised to victory over the Griz on Justice Winslow’s 27-point performance.
Memphis didn’t have a single player get to the 20-point mark, but Ja Morant started his NBA campaign with 14 points and five rebounds.

A run of four straight wins was broken last night when the Coyotes fell to the Islanders by a score of 4-2. That was the most goals Arizona has allowed all season after allowing three goals just once, the last of which came in overtime.
On average, the Coyotes are scoring 2.89 goals per game (tied for 18th) while allowing 2.11 goals per game (tied for 1st).
Center Nick Schmaltz leads the Coyotes with nine points on three goals and six assists. Goaltender Darcy Kuemper has been good in goal, allowing 1.87 goals per game with a .934 save percentage.
The Devils haven’t played in nearly a week, when they won their second-straight game despite managing only a single goal. New Jersey is currently last in the Metropolitan Division.
On average, the Devils are scoring 2.38 goals per game (27th) while allowing 3.63 goals per game (29th).
Left winger Taylor Hall has been the team’s brightest spot thus far, posting a team-high five assists and six points.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Predators -185
Tonight’s game in Nashville will give the Wild (3-6-0, 6 points) a chance to win three straight. The problem for Minnesota is that they’ll be facing a Predators (5-3-1, 11 points) team that’s been much better to start the season.
By edging out Montreal and shutting out Edmonton in two-straight home games, the Wild earned back-to-back victories and pulled even with Chicago in last place of the Central Division.
On average, the Wild are scoring just 2.33 goals per game (29th) while allowing 3.56 goals per game (tied for 26th).
Alex Stalock has been Minnesota’s best option at goaltender with a save percentage of .942 and allowing just 1.64 goals per game. Defenseman Brad Hunt leads the way offensively with four goals and six points.
The Predators are coming off a 6-1 throttling of Anaheim and are now set for their third-straight home game. Sitting second in the Central Division, Nashville relies on its offense to win games.
On average, the Predators are scoring a league-best 4.22 goals per game while allowing 3.44 goals per game (tied for 23rd).
Defenseman Ryan Ellis leads the team with 11 assists and 12 points.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Houston +14½ -110
D’Eriq King and the Houston Cougars (3-4) were supposed to be a top AAC team this year. Instead, it’s the undefeated #16 SMU Mustangs who lead the conference. Tonight, these two teams face off in Houston.
Ever since opening the season with a 37-30 win over Arkansas State, SMU has scored at least 41 points in every single contest. That includes a win over #25 TCU and a 45-21 performance against a good Temple team.
On average, the Mustangs are scoring 44 points per game on 521 yards of offense while allowing 27 points per game on 370 yards.
Quarterback Shane Buechele leads the SMU offense. Completing 64.8% of his passes, Buechele has thrown for 2,122 yards with 18 touchdowns and six interceptions. Buechele is coming off a huge game against Temple in which he threw for 457 yards with six TDs and one pick.
The Cougars followed up a loss to #25 Cincinnati with a 24-17 win over UConn. On average, Houston is scoring 31 points per game on 393 yards of offense while allowing 31 points per game on 470 yards.
Houston features a running game with a pair of backs that have scored three touchdowns each. Kyle Porter leads the team with 448 yards, and Patrick Carr has racked up 301 yards of his own.
Although Houston doesn’t have the stingiest defense in the nation, giving 14.5 points to an offense that averages 31 is a dangerous affair.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Hawks/Pistons under222½ -110
While the vast majority of the NBA played its first game on Wednesday, the Hawks (0-0) are set to open their season tonight in Detroit when they take on the Pistons (1-0). The over/under is set at 222.5 points.
After a 29-53 season a year ago, Atlanta enters its second year of a youth movement spearheaded by Trae Young. Last season, Young averaged 19.1 points, 8.1 assists, and 3.7 rebounds per game.
After an active offseason, Young will be joined by the likes of Evan Turner, Jabari Parker, Cam Reddish, and Vince Carter, who is set for the 22ndand final season of his productive career. If rookie De’Andre Hunter can provide a much-needed defensive presence, this team could take a huge step forward.
The Pistons will enter their home opener without the freshest of legs after playing in Indiana last night. Detroit was able to earn a 119-110 victory over the Pacers without Blake Griffin, and will now aim to do the same thing again.
Andre Drummond was a force for the pistons in that game, leading all scorers with 32 points and adding a monstrous 23 rebounds, seven of which came on offense. Yet after playing 41 minutes, don’t expect Drummond to duplicate that performance in his second game in as many nights.
|10-23-19||Nationals +170 v. Astros||Top||12-3||Win||170||11 h 55 m||Show|
100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Nationals +170
Most expected the Astros (107-55) to start the World Series with a victory behind the nearly-unhittable arm of Gerrit Cole. Instead, the Nationals (93-69) stole Game 1 in Houston and now aim to make it two in a row.
Nationals outfielder Juan Soto was the difference maker on Tuesday, taking Cole deep to tie the game at 2-2 on his way to batting in three of Washington’s five runs. Soto, who turns 21 on Friday, leads the team with three home runs and 10 RBIs in the postseason.
After handing Cole his first loss in 26 starts, the Nationals will aim to steal another game in Houston by sending out right-hander Stephen Strasburg (18-6, 3.32 ERA). Among pitchers with at least five postseason starts, Strasburg’s 1.10 postseason ERA is the third-lowest in MLB history.
This postseason, Strasburg has allowed only one walk on his way to a 1.64 ERA.
Right-hander Justin Verlander (21-6, 2.58 ERA) gets the start for the Astros. Culminating in a 3.70 ERA, Verlander has a couple of losses in addition to a pair of strong outings so far this postseason. After yesterday’s loss, this suddenly feels like a must-win home game for Verlander and the Astros.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Penguins +190
After spending a year as the dominant team in the NHL a year ago, the Lightning (4-3-1, 9 points) have gotten off to a slow start this season. Tonight in Tampa Bay, they’ll aim to get back on track with a win over the Penguins (6-4-0, 12 points).
Pittsburgh is coming off two straight losses after being shut out by Vegas before losing 4-2 at the hands of the Panthers. However, the Penguins remain a top-three team in the Metropolitan Division.
On average, the Penguins are scoring 3.40 goals per game (8th) while allowing 2.70 goals per game (10th).
A solid, balanced Pittsburgh team is led by Sidney Crosby, who owns a team-high nine assists and 13 points through the first 10 games of the season.
Currently only ahead of the Senators and Red Wings in the Atlantic Division, the Lightning are having trouble keeping the puck out of their own net. Most recently, Tampa Bay allowed six goals in a loss to the Avalanche.
On average, the Lightning are scoring 3.50 goals per game (7th) while allowing 3.38 goals per game (21st).
Steven Stamkos has been at the forefront of the Tampa Bay attack to start the season. With a team-high four goals, Stamkos leads the Lightning with nine points.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Celtics/76ers under211½ -110
Two teams aiming to contend for the Eastern Conference title will face off in the season opener as they Celtics (0-0) go into Philly to take on the 76ers (0-0). The over/under is set at 211.5 points.
This Atlantic Division showdown features a host of talent on either side of the ball, which is why only Milwaukee holds better odds than these two teams in the conference.
On the side of Boston, the departures of Al Horford and Aron Baynes will leave them thin at big man, and losing Kyrie Irving takes away a huge scoring threat. However, the Celtics were able to sign Kemba Walker and Enes Kanter to ease those losses.
Walker will be added to a talented roster that features Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, and Gordon Hayward. But with a number of players learning to play together, the Celtics may need some time to gel offensively.
Philadelphia’s big offseason losses included Jimmy Butler and JJ Redick, but the team was able to reload by adding Josh Richardson and Al Horford.
Those two players will join Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, and Tobias Harris to send out a formidable squad with plenty to offer on both ends of the floor.

50* Powerhouse Play on Wolves/Nets over225½ -109
Two teams aiming for low-end playoff seeds will face off to start the season when the Timberwolves (0-0) go up against the Nets (0-0) in Brooklyn.
After ending a 14-year playoff drought last year, the Wolves will once again rely on the All-Star talents of Karl-Anthony Towns. Last season, Towns averaged 24.4 points and a career-high 12.4 rebounds.
The NBA’s youngest head coach, Ryan Saunders, will be pushing his backcourt – Andrew Wiggins and Jeff Teague – to do more damage from the three-point line. Wiggins averaged 18.1 points with 33.9% shooting from three throughout the 2018-19 season.
Under Saunders, it’s highly likely that Minnesota will display a much faster pace than previous years.
The Nets may be a year away from competing for an NBA title, but they’ll be aiming to lay a foundation to build on starting this season.
Brooklyn may be the headliner of a wild offseason by acquiring the trio of Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and DeAndre Jordan. However, the Nets lost both Jared Dudley and All-Star D’Angelo Russell.
Although Irving experienced a tumultuous year in Boston last season, he hit career highs with five rebounds and 6.9 assists per game in addition to averaging 23.8 points.
|10-23-19||Cavs v. Magic -8||85-94||Win||100||10 h 58 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on Magic -8 -114
New Cavaliers (0-0) head coach John Beilein is set to make his debut for the franchise on the road against the Magic (0-0) in Orlando.
Beilein is taking over a team that has three remaining or returning players from the 2016 glory days: Matthew Dellavedova, Kevin Love, and Tristan Thompson. Love hasn’t been able to return to his 26 point, 13 rebound days from Minnesota, but he averaged 17 points and 10.9 rebounds a season ago.
With some young talent in the form of Collin Sexton and rookie Darius Garland, the Cavs have a shot at the playoffs if they get solid contributions from Larry Nance Jr. and Jordan Clarkson.
The Magic have made some moves that give them a great opportunity to make a second-straight postseason appearance for the first time since 2012. First of all, Orlando resigned Nikola Vucevic, who averaged 20.8 points, 12 rebounds, 3.8 assists, and 1.1 blocks per game last year.
Orlando simply offers more firepower than the Cavs, featuring Terrence Ross, Michael Carter-Williams, Markelle Fultz, Aaron Gordon, and Jonathan Isaac.
If Gordon, who shot 34.9% from three last year, and Isaac, who shot 32.3% from three last year, can improve from deep, this team could be dangerous.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Lakers -2½ -110
The NBA season will tip off with a bang as we get things started with the battle for Los Angeles between the Lakers (0-0) and Clippers (0-0).
While we’ll have to wait for the real war between LeBron James and Anthony Davis versus Kawhi Leonard and Paul George – George is out after undergoing surgery on his shoulders – tonight’s matchup will certainly quench a thirst that was created as soon as these two teams acquired their premier talent.
After sending a host of young players to New Orleans, including Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart, and Brandon Ingram, the Lakers acquired Davis and became an instant favorite in the Western Conference. Davis joins LeBron and the up-and-coming talent of Kyle Kuzma in addition to veteran role players like JaVale McGee and Rajon Rondo.
The Clippers pulled off a pair of blockbuster moves to land free agent Kawhi Leonard and acquire Paul George from the Thunder. With the likes of Patrick Beverley leading the role players on the Clippers, this team is full of scrappy guys who’ll compliment their stars.
Without George on the floor, the advantage falls to the Lakers. Last year, Davis averaged 25.9 points, 12 rebounds, and 3.9 assists per game with the Pelicans, and LeBron averaged 27.4 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 8.3 assists per game for L.A.
As we get our first look at these two teams, keep an eye on Danny Green and what sort of contribution he can provide for the Lakers from three.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Astros -183
After sweeping St. Louis in the NLCS, the Nationals (93-69) are finally going on the road to take on the Astros (107-55) in Houston for Game 1 of the World Series.
On the mound, Washington will be sending out right-hander Max Scherzer (11-7, 2.92 ERA). The Nats starting pitching destroyed the Cardinals last series, and Scherzer played his part. Taking a no-hitter into the seventh, Scherzer ended the game with 11 strikeouts and just one hit allowed through seven innings.
After opting to save Gerrit Cole (20-5, 2.50 ERA) and not pitch him in Game 6 of the ALCS, the Astros right-hander gets the start in Game 1. In addition to not losing a game since May, Cole has been virtually unhittable throughout the postseason. Since beginning October baseball, Cole has notched 32 strikeouts and owns a 0.40 ERA in three starts.
The Nationals have counted on the offense of Howie Kendrick and Anthony Rendon throughout the postseason. While Kendrick has a team-high nine RBIs, Rendon is batting .375 with seven RBIs of his own.
For Houston, Jose Altuve is the main man. With a .349 average, Altuve has hit five homers and eight RBIs in the postseason.

The Jets (5-5-0, 10 points) have played two more games and earned two more wins than their opponents tonight. Hoping to cut into that deficit will be the Kings (3-5-0, 6 points), who are on the road in Winnipeg.
Los Angeles is currently tied with San Jose for last place in the NHL’s Pacific Division. However, the Kings got back on track after three straight losses with a 4-1 win over Calgary on the 19th.
On average, the Kings are scoring 3.00 goals per game (tied for 13th) while allowing 4.00 goals per game (tied for last).
With a save percentage of .897, goaltender Jack Campbell is allowing 2.77 goals per game. Offensively, center Anze Kopitar leads the Kings with three goals, six assists, and nine points.
Winnipeg has followed a similar recent schedule, having lost three straight before earning a 1-0 win over Edmonton two days ago. The Jets are chasing both Colorado and St. Louis in the Central Division.
On average, Winnipeg is scoring just 2.60 goals per game (22nd) while allowing 3.30 goals per game (19th).
With a team-high four goals, center Mark Scheifele has been the most productive player for the Jets by adding eight assists for 12 points.

50* Powerhouse Play on Rangers +100
For the first time in a week, the Coyotes (4-2-1, 9 points) will go on the road and visit the Rangers (2-4-0, 4 points) in New York.
In three straight wins over the Jets, Predators, and Senators, the Coyotes have outscored their opponents 14-6 over the last seven days. On average, Arizona is scoring 3.00 goals per game (tied for 13th) and allowing 1.86 goals per game (2nd).
The strength of the Coyotes thus far has been goaltender Darcy Kuemper, who’s allowing only 1.62 goals per game in addition to a .949 save percentage.
Offensively, center Nick Schmaltz doesn’t have the most goals or assists, but leads the team with eight points on three goals and five assists.
The Rangers have lost four straight contests and are eager to claim their third win of the season and climb out of last place in the Metropolitan Division. On the bright side, New York has managed at least two goals in each of their last three games.
On average, the Rangers are scoring 2.83 goals per game (19th) while allowing 3.67 goals per game (28th).
New York has been able to count on center Mika Zibanejad through the early portion of the season. With one power play goal, Zibanejad leads the team with four goals, seven assists, and 11 points.

You’ll only find three wins between the Senators (1-5-1, 3 points) and Stars (2-7-1, 5 points) as these two teams go into this evening’s contest in Dallas.
Ottawa has been outscored 10-4 in three straight losses, but they can pull confidence from a 4-2 victory over a good Lightning team just over a week ago. The Senators would rather be at home, but they’re playing a Dallas team that hasn’t won in its own building yet.
On average, the Senators are scoring 2.29 goals per game while allowing 3.71 goals per game.
Right winger Connor Brown leads Ottawa with five assists, and center Vladislav Namestnikov has the team-high in goals (three) and points (five).
Sitting above only the Wild in the Central Division, the Stars have had plenty of trouble sticking the puck in the back of the net this year. We’ll see if Dallas can keep up its performance coming off the team’s best outing of the year, a 4-1 win over Philadelphia.
On average, the Stars are scoring just 2.10 goals per game, which is last in the NHL, while allowing 3.00 goals per game.
With six goals and seven points, Roope Hintz leads the Dallas offense from the left wing.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Jets +10 -115
Two familiar opponents are set for a Monday Night Football brawl as the undefeated Patriots (6-0) go on the road to take on the Jets (1-4).
The double-digit favorite Pats are yet to drop a contest, but they’ve also played one of the easiest schedules in the NFL through six weeks of play. New England has had the pleasure of playing the likes of Miami, Washington, and the Giants thus far.
While it’s taken the Patriots offense awhile to get going, the defense has been dominant throughout the season. On average, New England is scoring 32 points per game on 399 yards of offense while allowing an NFL-lowest eight points per game on 260 yards.
After throwing for only 150 yards against Buffalo, quarterback Tom Brady has bounced back with 348 yards against the Redskins and 334 yards against the Giants. On the season, Brady has thrown for 1,743 yards with 10 touchdowns and three picks.
The Jets have only been better than Miami in the AFC East, but they’re coming off their first win of the season on Sam Darnold’s return and their best offensive performance of the year.
On average, New York is scoring 13 points per game on 250 yards of offense while allowing 25 points per game on 369 yards.
Although New England won a Week 3 matchup between these teams by a score of 30-14, Darnold was out of the game with mono. Now, the Jets will have their starter under center after going 23 of 32 for 338 yards, two TDs, and a pick against Dallas last week.

Tonight’s game between the Flames (4-4-1, 9 points) and Ducks (6-2-0, 12 points) figures to have an impact on the Pacific Division standings, in which Anaheim sits second.
Calgary will play for the second time in two days after losing to the Kings by a score of 4-1 last night. On the road, the Flames are just 1-4 and face a good Ducks team in Anaheim.
On average, the Flames are scoring 2.56 goals per game while allowing 2.89 goals per game.
Center Elias Lindholm leads Calgary with five goals, but left winger Johnny Gaudreau has a team-high seven points with three goals and four assists.
With an extra day of rest, the Ducks are coming off a pair of wins over Buffalo and Carolina on a combined score of 9-4. Anaheim doesn’t sport the most prolific offense, but a strong defense makes up for it.
On average, the Ducks are scoring just 2.75 goals per game, but they can boast the NHL’s best overall defensive record by allowing just 1.75 goals per game.
With four goals and three assists, left winger Jakob Silfverberg leads the Ducks with seven points. With a matching save percentage of .941, goaltenders Ryan Miller and John Gibson have been solid in net all season.

With a combined record of 2-10, the Jaguars (2-4) and winless Bengals (0-6) are set to go head to head in Cincinnati on Sunday afternoon. The over/under is set at 44.5 points.
Jacksonville has shown flashes of offensive prowess with Gardner Minshew leading the team, but they’ve failed to score more than 27 points in any game this year. Most recently, the Jags were held to six points by a good New Orleans defense.
On average, Jacksonville is scoring 20 points per game on 380 yards of offense while allowing 22 points on 392 yards.
Minshew has thrown for 1,442 yards with nine touchdowns and two interceptions, but much of Jacksonville’s big-play ability comes down to whether or not Minshew can find DJ Charke Jr. On 30 catches, Charke Jr. has 528 yards and five touchdowns with 11 big plays.
The Bengals have been nothing short of dreadful this year. Sitting last in the AFC North, Cincinnati has yet to score more than 23 points in any game.
On average, the Bengals are scoring 16 points per game on 331 yards of offense while allowing 27 points per game on 434 yards.
With just 56.5 yards rushing per game, the Cincinnati offense doesn’t scare anyone. The Bengals running game only has two touchdowns on the year, both of which came from quarterback Andy Dalton.

Oakland is coming off a bye week after winning two straight over Indianapolis and Chicago, the latter of which was played in London. On average, the Raiders are scoring 21 points per game on 357 yards of offense while allowing 25 points per game on 368 yards.

On average, the Packers are scoring 24 points on 370 yards of offense while allowing 19 points per game on 384 yards.
After a slow start, Aaron Rodgers has come on strong. On the season, Rodgers has thrown for 1,590 yards, eight touchdowns, and two interceptions. Most recently, Rodgers threw for 283 yards against the Detroit.
