MNF Free Pick: Colts at Giants

eliThe 2014 Indianapolis Colts are an all around better team than the New York Giants. They have strengths at positions that the Giants don’t have. The Giants are not a bad football team and in fact start off every year like this then they catch fire late in the season. It’s a formula that seems to work for them.

As long as the Giants have Manning at QB they have a shot at any game and any season. He is definitely a conundrum.  The Colts are 5-3 straight up and 6-2 ATS. The Giants are 3-4 SU and 3-4 ATS.

When plugging this game into our matchup computer, we get Indy -1 as what the spread should be.  This accounts for the fact that Indy scores more than they allow but the Giants allow more than they score. But the major factor here is the MNF home field advantage.  Indy may still win this game and they may cover but based on the computer model getting three at home is a little too tempting to not bet on it.

chartWe like a small to medium play on the NY Giants +3 and if you can buy the hook, that would protect against a field goal in OT type of loss/tie. In fact Bovada.lv has the line at Indy -3.5 so you may want to bet it there.

Houston vs. Indianapolis Free Pick

luckThe Houston Texans are having a terrible 2013 NFL campaign. This week they travel to Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana to face the Indianapolis Colts. I don’t see their season getting any better with this game. A safe week 15 NFL sports bet is to take the Colts to win and cover the point spread.

Keys for the Indianapolis Colts to Cover the Point Spread
The Colts can focus on playing high quality football without worrying about any playoff implications. With a record of 8 – 5, the Indianapolis Colts have wrapped up the AFC South Division. The Houston Texans can’t overtake them for the divisional lead and neither can the Jacksonville Jaguars nor the Tennessee Titans.

Andrew Luck, the Indianapolis quarterback, has proven that he can play in this league. He has thrown for 3119 yards and 19 touchdowns. As of late, though, he has struggled. One of his favorite targets, wide receiver Reggie Wayne, is sidelined with a torn ACL. Luck’s other receiving targets need to step up their game and help get the Indianapolis Colt’s offensive back on track heading into the playoffs. › Continue reading

NHL Detroit at Chicago

The Chicago Blackhawks took care of business in Game 1 of their Western Conference semifinal with the Detroit Red Wings. However, Game 2 could be far more challenging. The Red Wings looked fatigued in the first contest as they were coming off a physical seven-game series with the Anaheim Ducks.

Get NHL odds at Bovada and enjoy a free 50% Bonus.

The Blackhawks have had the Red Wings number this season as they’ve now won all five meetings. Goals have been hard to come by for Detroit as they’ve totaled just six goals in those five contests. They’ll definitely need more offense if they’re to steal Game 2. › Continue reading

oregonOn Saturday March 23, 2013 the Oregon Ducks face the St. Louis Billikens in both teams second round of play.  The Oddsmakers have St. Louis as -3.5 favorites in this game.

In their last game St. Louis easily defeated the New Mexico State team by 20 points to advance.

Oregon is really playing well right now. After having won the Pac-12 conference tourney against UCLA they defeated a very good Oklahoma State team by 13 points.

Notre Dame vs Marquette Quick Pick

notre-dame-basketball-pick-2013Notre Dame vs. Marquette Quick Pick
9:30 pm EST Madison Square Gardens New York

We had so much success with last night’s quick pick selecting Texas Tech over WVU that we are doing it in this fashion again tonight. Quick look at the two teams and what they have done, then the pick and finally why we feel that way.

This is the NCAA Basketball game of the night.  Notre Dame is ranked #24 in the nation and Marquette is #12. Notre Dame is 24-8 SU and just 15-14 ATS. Marquette is 23-7 SU and 13-13 ATS. These teams match up very similarly.  Less than two weeks ago they played each other and Notre Dame lost 64-72 at Marquette.  The similarities don’t stop at the records though. Both teams score 70 points per game allow 62.  Stats are equal or very close to it all the way down the board except for 3 point FG’s.  Notre Dame averages 2 more per game made than does Marquette (6.6 vs. 4.3). › Continue reading

Gonzaga vs. St. Mary’s Free basketball Pick

st-marysTonight’s matchup between St. Mary’s and Gonzaga is an interesting one to say the least.  You have the #1 team in the country, Gonzaga, vs. a team with a great record that is unranked and is in the same conference.  In fact, two of St. Mary’s only 5 losses came against this Gonzaga team; one was by 5 points and the other by 17. Other than Gonzaga, St. Mary’s has lost to Pacific, Northern Iowa and Georgia Tech. They have virtually no impressive wins on their schedule except maybe the win at BYU. That is a borderline impressive victory. All of their games have been against the west coast teams that don’t do well against the big conferences. The other wins are against Ivy league schools and I don’t need to elaborate why those are unimpressive.

Gonzaga has victories against West Va., Clemson, Oklahoma, Kansas State and Baylor. They deserve to be #1 having played and won so many out of conference games.  Their big man Kelly Olynyk scores 17 points per game and they will need him tonight in full force to beat a very motivated St. Mary’s team. I think St. Mary’s feels like they are the younger brother that is good but always gets beat by big brother.  They think tonight will be their big chance.  This is St. Mary’s chance to do something for their program. › Continue reading

Celtics vs Lakers Free NBA pick

lakersThe Los Angeles Lakers have found relative success of late, making the significance of their Thursday night matchup with the Boston Celtics all the more exciting. Can they finally live up to their NBA odds against a playoff-bound Eastern Conference contender?

Although not without uncertainty of their own this season, Boston’s veteran core has produced at rates that Lakers fans could only dream of throughout the first half of the regular season. Despite that, however, it’s the Lakers with the advantage on the NBA futures. › Continue reading

Michigan State vs. Minnesota Basketball Free Pick

michigan-stateToday’s free pick is a 7:00 PM EST tip off Big 10 matchup between Michigan State and Minnesota.  We love handicapping Big Ten action because it is the best conference in the country and there is so much parody that you can taste it in the cold winter air.  Michigan State is favored by 4.5 points.  We like to handicap games much more than totals. There is much more info to work with. So, we will stay away from total analysis on this one.

Minnesota comes into this matchup 17-5 SU and 13-7 ATS.  They just pulled off a squeaker against Iowa a few days ago in Minnesota and failed to cover the ten point spread.  Minnesota has already defeated Michigan State this year 76-63.  They have also defeated USC, Stanford and Florida State. They are bouncing back from a four game skid and have won the last two games. › Continue reading
