Wayne Root's NFL PLAYOFFS GAME OF THE YEAR, Sunday
Pinnacle New Orleans
Stop waving the pennants, put them back on the wall, no need for pompons, this is not college football where revenge plays a vital role. There’s a reason that the Saints destroyed the Eagles week’s ago. So here’s what we have. The public screaming for revenge. The public getting on the Nick Foles bandwagon. The public remembering last season and want it to happen again. The public living a “feels good” storyline. But the Oddsmakers are not buying it. They opened the line high and the public fell all over it and are betting the Eagles causing the pointspread to fall in our favor. The sportsbooks actually need the Saints this week. Almost unheard of for them to need a popular home favorite. Look for Brees and company to be fresh and a ton of touchdowns from him.
NFL - 3* Patriots (-4) - Sunday
Edges - Patriots: 7-0 SU and 5-1-1 ATS home off a win versus foes playing in 3rd straight road game, including 5-0-1 ATS in games in which New England is not a double-digit favorite; and QB Brady 19-3 SU home in the playoffs, including 8-0 SU and 6-1-1 ATS against foes coming off a double-digit win … Chargers: QB Rivers 0-7 SU and 1-6 ATS versus Brady, including 0-6 SUATS when not taking double-digit … We cement the call with this from our well-oiled machine: rested home teams in NFL Divisional round of the playoffs that lost SU as a favorite in the playoffs last year are 22-2 SU and 18-5 ATS since 1980, including 16-0 ATS when facing a non-division foe that won 11 or fewer games last season. With that we recommend a strong 3* play on New England. Thank you and good luck as always
New York Knicks - Philadelphia 76ers
Philadelphia 76ers -6.5
Farmers Insurance Open Predictions The 2019 Farmers Insurance Open features a number of big names and will begin play on Thursday morning. Here’s some of the golfers we think will contend for the win this weekend.
Rams vs. Wolfpack Prediction The seventh-ranked Nevada Wolfpack are at home tonight as they face the Colorado State Rams. With Colorado State being a poor defensive team, will today's game hit the over?
Predators vs. Golden Knights Prediction The Nashville Predators snapped a two-game skid two nights ago on the road and return to action tonight at the Las Vegas Golden Knights. Can Nashville post another win away from home?
Blue Demons vs. Golden Eagles Prediction The Marquette Golden Eagles have risen to 12th in the rankings on the heels of their five-game winning streak. Will Marquette keep it rolling tonight at home versus DePaul?
Super Bowl LIII MVP Odds The odds are out for Super Bowl LIII MVP and to no one’s surprise, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is favored over the rest of the field. Where do Rams signal-caller Jared Goff and running back Todd Gurley fall on the list?
Nuggets vs. Jazz Spread Prediction The Jazz had their six-game winning streak snapped by the Trail Blazers on Monday night, but will they rebound tonight when they host the Nuggets at 10:30 p.m. ET? The home team in this series has had great ATS success.
