We are entering the busiest time of the year for sports fans. Golfers are playing down south to get ready for the upcoming season, football is in full swing, COLLEGE BASKETBALL is almost back, there is a lot to be excited about. It is one thing to be well versed in one sport, but savvy bettors know that markets dry up quickly. It is extremely difficult to bet the NFL all year and be profitable, so as a blogger it is my duty to help other diversify their sports-centric portfolio. You wouldn't just put all of your money into dogecoin right? RIGHT?
I won't bother recapping these two teams seasons, I am sure you have seen enough on social media. However, I do want to point some things out. The Eagles have given up the least amount of yards to the passing game this season, and that's impressive. Their rushing defense on the other hand has not been as impressive. The Texans have a great running back in Dameon Pierce. Although he stalled against Tennessee, the Titans have a good run defense, much better than Philadelphia's. With the Eagles giving up nearly 5 yards per rush attempt, I don't see why the Texans will need to turn to Davis Mills at all this game. Brandin Cooks sitting out hurts the air game as well. I would bet on Mills having a slow day today. Only one QB has passed for over 207.5 yards against the Eagles. Kyler Murray in the bird game Week 5.
Official Pick: Davis Mills Under 207.5 passing yards (3u)
This one is a bit ugly, but there are a couple of points to bring up. UTEP has been involved in low scoring affairs all season. Anomalies include a buy game against Oklahoma and their game against Charlotte, whose defense resembles Swiss cheese. Rice has also played Charlotte so their offensive numbers are a bit inflated. I am looking for a low scoring game in this gross Thursday night matchup.
Official Pick: Rice/UTEP Under 47.5 (1u)
I have been really bad in the NBA so I would not recommend taking this one. If you want to take a risk though, the Nuggets have an average pace of play, while the Thunder are a bit faster. It is worth noting that the Thunder have one of the worst effective field goal percentages in the league. Although the play fast, they don't normally make the most of their opportunities. I trust the Thunder's defense to take care of business and their offense to remain incompetent.
Official Pick: Nuggets @ Thunder Under 229
First hockey bet of the season. I have no input.
Official Pick: Kraken +160 (1u)
Maverick McNealy is +2000 to win the WW Technology Championship. He has historically played well at El Camaleon and coming off of a few nice rounds. Go ahead and take this long-shot.
Official Pick: McNealy to win +2000 (.25 u)
