The (7-3) SU, (3-7) ATS South Florida Bulls have lost three straight, their most recent a 35-23 defeat to Cincinnati as 15-point road UNDERDOGS ATS. South Florida began the season unranked but climbed to a #21 national ranking after winning their first seven games in 2018.

The Bulls defense gave up 432 total yards to the Cincinnati offense of which 238 were on the ground.

  • South Florida is 0-4 ATS their last four on grass.
  • The OVER is 3-1 South Florida last four on the road.
  • OVER bettors have profited in 9 of the Bulls last ten vs. teams with a winning SU record.
  • The Bulls are 1-7 ATS the Bulls last eight after allowing over 200 yards their previous game.

The (6-4) SU, (7-3) ATS Temple Owls look like the second best team in the AAC East division after a strong showing on primetime against Central Florida before losing 52-40 SU as 10′ point road UNDERDOGS.

Sports bettors who took Temple with the points watched the Owls take a 34-28 lead into halftime only to get outscored 24-6 in the third and fourth quarters. The Owls bounced back last week in another high scoring affair taking down Houston 59-49 as 3′ point road UNDERDOGS ATS.

Senior will get recognized Saturday, and they close out the 2018 season at Connecticut.

  • The OVER is 3-1 the last four meetings between the teams since the inception of the AAC.
  • Temple is 5-0 AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD their last five after scoring 40 points or more their previous game.
  • The home teams are 4-0 ATS the last four times the teams have played.

The Opening Betting Line has Temple 14 point home FAVORITES ATS. The TOTAL is 62-Points for Saturday’s contest.

Charlie Strong is in his second season on the sidelines at the Tampa based institute where a showdown with rivals Central Florida looked like an East division title game three weeks ago, but things have taken a different course.

The South Florida offense is struggling without starting quarterback Blake Barnett (2,395) passing yards who missed the Cincinnati game with a shoulder injury. The California native is questionable for Saturday again Temple. Sophomore Chris Oladokun did an admirable job last week in Cincinnati throwing for 165 yards with two touchdowns completing 10 of 22 passes. South Florida offense ranks fourth in total offense among the American Athletic Conference averaging (474.0) yards per game. They score (32.3) ppg which is the sixth-best in the AAC. Running Back Jordan Cronkrite (982) rushing yards leads the 36th ranked running attack in College Football.

The Bulls are challenged on the other side of the football, and the run defense has given up (2,472) total yards, 121st in the FBS.

Strong earned his reputation as a defensive coach while at the University of Florida under Urban Meyer and must address the unit at USF. The bulls have given up133 total point the last three games which is unacceptable.

South Florida can’t get caught looking ahead to their showdown with Central Florida.

Bovada.Lv, list the South Florida Bulls at +1,500 to win the 2018 American Athletic Conference East Crown.
The Temple Owls are trending upwards but needs help to play for the AAC Championship. If the Owls can win out and Central Florida loses their remaining games against Cincinnati and South Florida, the Owls would win the East division. Quarterback Andy Russo leads the Temple offense to a season-high 59-points last week at Houston with no signs of slowing down this week against a pathetic South Florida defense. Temple has scored (343) total points this season which is 33rd best in the FBS. Running Back Ryquell Armstead (978) rushing yards leads a ground game that has (1,613) yards on the ground which ranks 69th in College Football, and average (4.2) yards per attempt.

The Owls defense has given up 100-points the past two weeks, but Central Florida and Houston are among the best in College Football on offense. They also gave up 45-points at Boston College in September other than those three games they’ve played lights out on defense.

However, they’ll face another prolific offense Saturday, but the weather conditions could put a hamper on the South Florida offense.

Temple has allowed opponent (3,835) total yards this season which is 63rd in division-1.

A key to a Temple win over USF is to run the football and keep the USF offense off the field.

Bovada.Lv, list the Temple Owls at +1,300 to win the 2018 ACC Title.

The (4-6) SU, 6-4 ATS Miami University RedHawks were due for an upset, and they’ll pull one off last Wednesday, November 7th in front of the home crowd 30-28 against Ohio University as 4′ point home UNDERDOGS ATS.

Know as the cradle of coaches Miami University has produced successful players in the NFL, most notable Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Miami took a 28-7 lead into halftime but scored two points in the second half to hold off rivals Ohio University.

  • The UNDER is 3-0-1 the last four Redhawks games on Wednesday.
  • OVER bettors have been profitable in 5 of the Redhawks last seven overall.
  • Miami Ohio is 8-20-1 ATS in their last 29 after giving over 200 rushing yards the previous game.
  • The Redhawks have covered five of the last six between the teams AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD.

The (7-3) SU, 6-4 ATS Northern Illinois Huskies, came closer the West division title with a 38-15 win over Toledo last Wednesday as 3′ point home FAVORITES ATS. It seems as though Northern Illinois is always in contention for the division title and got revenge on 2017 MCA title champions Toledo.

Northern Illinois is on a six-game winning streak but the next two weeks could determine a lot with the season finale at Western Michigan who’s a little down the season.

  • Northern Illinois is 4-1 ATS their last five after an SU win.
  • The Huskies are 7-3 AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD their last seven on Wednesday’s.
  • bettors have cashed in Northern Illinois last four at home.
  • The UNDER is 4-0 NIU last four after rushing for more than 200 yards their previous game.

Wednesday’s game is at 8:00 PM EST at Huskie Stadium on campus DeKalb about 30 minutes from Chicago, Illinois. The ESPNU Television Network will be broadcasting. The Opening Betting Line has Northern Illinois 6′ point home FAVORITES ATS. The TOTAL isn’t available for Wednesday’s contest.

Miami University head coach Chuck Martin will have his team ready for action as they try to become bowl eligible for the second time in three seasons. The Redhawks have beaten Northern Illinois once since the 1998 season, 26-21 in 2010. Miami has been competitive this season with their last two losses 31-30 SU as 6′ point road UNDERDOGS ATS to Army and two weeks ago 42-31 at Buffalo as 6 UNDERDOGS. Quarterback Gus Ragland (2,281) yards passing this season with 16 touchdowns and four interceptions leads the 75th ranked scoring offense in the FBS (28.2) ppg.

However, the Redhawks are averaging (38.0) points per contest their last three on the road.

The Redhawks defense allows opponents (27.8) ppg with (156.1) yards per game on the ground which ranks 4th in the MAC. With the windy weather conditions around the area they’ll more than likely get a good dose of NIU on the ground. The Redhawks seventh-ranked pass defense in the conference allows (210.6) yards per game through the air.

A key to a Miami Ohio win is to stack the box, NIU isn’t as good throwing the football as the Redhawks passing attack but wind could for Miami to run.

Miami Ohio is out of contention for the 2018 MAC Championship.

Northern Illinois will be looking to clinch the West division along with their seventh consecutive victory on the Senior night in DeKalb. The Huskies are known for at least one big upset over a powerhouse school each season and it held as they went into BYU to come away with a 7-6 SU win as 6′ UNDERDOGS ATS. The Huskies seek a trip to the MAC title game in December and a win Wednesday gets them a step closer. For that to happen, they’ll need the defense to perform against a more than capable Miami Ohio offense.

The top-rated scoring defense in the Mid American Conference gives up an average of (21.0) ppg, on the ground, they allow opponents (109.6) yards per contest almost 35 yards less than the second-ranked rush defense. However, their ninth-ranked conference pass defense is suspect as opposing quarterbacks are throwing for (245.2) yards per game through the air.

Northern Illinois scores an average of (21.1) ppg on offense which ranks tenth in the MAC. The (180.2) yards per contest produced the by running game is fifth in the Mid American Conference. Quarterback Marcus Childers (1,383) total yards through the air leads the conferences 11th ranked passing attack which average (138.3) ypg.

Northern Illinois can’t take Miami Ohio for granted they gave Buffalo all they can handle and beat Ohio University.

Bovada.Lv, list the Northern Illinois Huskies at +325 to win the 2018 Mid American Conference Title.

The (5-4) SU, 6-3 ATS Temple Owls, are second in the East division of the AAC as they let a golden opportunity slip away on a November 1st, 52-40 SU loss as 10′ point road UNDERDOGS ATS. Know for playing tough defense the Owls showed they could score points which they’ll need to do again tonight in the Lone Star State.

Quarterback Anthony Russo earned the respect of teammates with 44 yards through the air with four touchdowns in defeat. The Owls offense produced 670 total yards well above their average.

  • Temple is 22-6 ATS their last twenty-eight vs. AAC opponents.
  • OVER bettors have been profitable in 5 of the Owls last six as an UNDERDOG.
  • The OVER is 5-0 the Owls last five in November.
  • Temple is 5-0 ATS their last five after throwing form more than 280 yards the previous game.

The (7-2) SU, 5-4 ATS Houston Cougars, are on top of the American Athletic Conference, West but look to bounce back after a 45-31 SU loss to SMU last Saturday a 14-point road FAVORITES ATS. Quarterback D’Eriq King and the Houston offense produced 365 total yards while the defense yielded 514 yards to the SMU offense.

The loss also knocked Houston out of the top twenty-five in rankings. Houston has the Owls number winning all four since the inception of the American Athletic Conference, and you can bet both teams will be ready.

  • OVER bettors have made a profit 4 of the Cougars last five after allowing more than 280 passing yards the previous game.
  • The Cougars are 5-0 ATS their last five after a POINT SPREAD loss.
  • UNDER bettors have cashed in the past four times, the teams have played.
  • Houston has covered 3 of their last four ATS.

Saturday’s game is at 7:00 PM EST at TDECU Stadium on campus in Houston, Texas. The CBSSN Television Network will be broadcasting.

The Opening Betting Line has Temple as 4′ point road UNDERDOGS ATS. The TOTAL is 70 points for Saturday’s contest.

Temple head coach Geoff Collins is pickup up where former coach Matt Ruhl left off as the Owls are still a formidable opponent for any team in College Football. However, they’ll probably play second fiddle to Central Florida again this season unless the Knights get upset a couple of times. Temple must get past Houston today, South Florida next week at home and then a road trip to Uconn.

The Owls offense have another chance to increase their (31.6) ppg today against a vulnerable Houston defense. Temple signal caller Anthony Russo leads a unit that ranks 6th in the AAC with (406) total yards per game. Running back Ryquell Armstead run for 142 in last weeks loss, he’s got 768 total yards on the ground this and must get touches Saturday.

The Owls defense allowed UCF 312 yards through the air last week which is more than double their season average of (147.5) Senior defensive tackle Michael Dogbe knows he must get pressure on the

Houston quarterback and most of all keep him in the pocket. Temple has allowed opponents more than 200-yards per game on the ground in five of their last six games.

Bovada.Lv, list the Temple Owls at +1,400 to win the 2018 American Athletic Conference Championship.

Major Applewhite has the Houston offense performing at an elite, but SMU held them to a season-low 31-points. The Conferences top offense averages (548.0) total yards per game with (44.7) ppg as a result. Quarterback D’Eriq King is the leader of the leagues top passing attack (315.9) yards per contest through the air, but four teams in the AAC have more yards on the ground. Wideout Marquez Stevenson (823) receiving yards on 49 catches with nine touchdowns is third in the American Athletic Conference.

Houston All American junior defensive tackle Ed Oliver has already declared for the 2019 NFL draft, and he’ll be a top ten pick; he’s back in action today after missing the past two games. However, the unit has their issues this season. Coordinator Mark D’Onofrio who once had the same title at Temple under Al Golden must have his group ready for an Owls offense that’s surging.

The Cougars defense has allowed opponents 400 or more yards in five consecutive games and the (324.0) passing yards given up which ranks among the worst in College football.

The coaching staff watched the Temple vs. Central Florida film and must find ways to make Russo uncomfortable, if you give his time he’ll throw darts.

Bovada.Lv, list the Houston Cougars at +400 to win the 2018 AAC title.

Why wait for March Madness when you can have November Nirvana?

Zion Williamson can’t believe how easy it was for Duke to dispatch Kentucky.

Is one game into the 2018/19 NCAA basketball season to soon to crown the national champion? Yes. Yes, it is. There are early-season tournaments, holiday tournaments, conference play, inter-conference play, conference tournaments and the Big Dance yet to come. For teams who can make a deep run to the Final Four, as many as 40 games remain. The one that matters takes place on Monday, April 8th in Minneapolis, not Tuesday, November 6th in Indianapolis.

Can’t seem to string any wins together?

On the other hand, it’s been seven bleak months in which a college player has not contested a shot in anger, rattled a rim, or gotten the Cameron Crazies on their feet. All anyone could do was watch the NBA Finals and the Stanley Cup, the Champions League Final and World Cup, pennant races and World Series, all the while counting the days.

So, when #4 Duke and #2 Kentucky got it on to kick off the season, all that pent-up energy had to go somewhere. When it went into a 34-point rout, the ‘4’ in front of Duke flew out the window to be replaced by the ‘1’ on the chest of 2018’s answer to Charles Barkley, freshman forward Zion Williamson.

The 18-year-old from Salisbury, North Carolina rumbled for 28 points and seven rebounds in 23 minutes. Fellow freshman, RJ Barrett, from Mississauga, Ontario, outdid him with 33 points in 32 minutes. Aussie Jack White claimed 11 boards.

Now, the entire college basketball universe is anointing Duke national champions. One game does not a season make, but after such a dominant performance, the title is at least theirs to lose.

Mike Krzyzewski instructs freshman Trevon Duval during a game last season. His advice wasn’t to leave school after one year.

It’s difficult to bet against Duke and their coach in that scenario. Not because Mike Krzyzewski and Duke are invincible. No one is. Not now, not ever. Coach K has bounced back from several setbacks in the regular season, the tournament, the Final Four, the national title game and in the off-season. Now, the school is bouncing back from its reputation.

In his 38 years as Duke coach, Krzyzewski built a program that emphasised education as much as athletics. In 1999, the Blue Devils were the last founding ACC team to lose a freshman to the NBA. Its players were famous for staying in school, producing mature professionals like Shane Battier and JJ Redick. Even Duke standouts who failed to make it as NBA stars were prepared for success after school. Danny Ferry went into management. Jay Bilas became both a successful lawyer and television/internet personality.

In the last decade, however, the former Army player and West Point coach grew weary fighting a rearguard action. Even though Jay Wright and Villanova have won national titles twice in the last three years while keeping players in school and producing a 100% graduation rate in their squad, players declare early for the NBA as frequently from Cameron Fieldhouse as they do from Rupp Arena these days. Duke keeps producing dominant freshman classes but can no longer boast senior ones.

Williamson is the physical, RJ Barrett the finesse, but talent like theirs doesn’t wait around.

Coach K, once thought above reproach, fielded questions last year about an FBI investigation that found irregularities in his freshman class. Rookie Chicago Bulls center Wendell Carter Jr’s eligibility was questioned when it emerged his mother had lunch with an agent [now charged with corruption] when the player was just 16. Krzyzewski shrugged off the questions, suggesting it’s time the NCAA stopped exploiting its athletes, “take a look at amateurism and look at it probably defining it differently.

It’s a valid point. At the same time, it asks the dubious question, ‘if the NCAA doesn’t care about an athlete’s future, why should I?’

At 71, Krzyzewski has exchanged pragmatism for the ideology the 56-year-old Wright still practices at Villanova. Time is running out on his career. He’s made the Final Four just four times this century, winning three, however, in 2001, 2010 and 2015. That’s why it’s so difficult to rule Duke out. When they make it to the last weekend, they tend to finish on top.

In an effort to add another title to his collection, Krzyzewski’s recruiting the best athletes to fit his system, regardless of their commitment to an education.

Coach K’s new approach is paying early dividends. Before the romp over Kentucky, Duke were 4/1 favourites to win the NCAA Championship outright, EVEN MONEY to make the Final Four. UK was at 6/1 and 5/4 respectively. Villanova was 25/1 to defend its title, although their line moved to 15/1 on 8 November.

2015 was the 3rd time this century, fifth overall, Coach K claimed the national title. His twelve Final Fours are most overall.

As I said, it’s Duke’s title to lose. Mike Krzyzewski is in prime position to add to his legacy. At one time, graduating another senior class would have done that more than climbing a ladder and cutting away a net. Things change. Not always for the better.

#16 Mississippi State Bulldogs @ #1 Alabama Crimson Tide NCAA Football Week-11, SEC-West Division Betting preview for Saturday, November 10, 2018.

The (6-3) SU/ATS Mississippi State Bulldogs beat Louisiana Tech last week 45-3 SU as twenty-three point home FAVORITES AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD in a tune-up for this week’s huge obstacle.

Mississippi State hasn’t played very well on the road this season in conference play beginning with a 28-7 loss to Kentucky as nine and a half point road FAVORITES ATS. They were expected to lose in Death Valley against LSU which happened 16-3 in a span which they dropped three of four ATS. The Bulldogs know what’s in store Saturday, they’ll be fired up and can only hope Alabama has a lingering effect from last week rivalry game in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

  • The UNDER is 6-0 Mississippi State last six games vs. Teams with a winning SU record.
  • Mississippi State is 1-4 ATS the last five times the teams have played in Tuscaloosa.
  • UNDER bettors have cashed in the Bulldogs last four on the road against a team with a winning home record.
  • The Bulldogs have stayed UNDER the total their last five games.

The (9-3) SU, 6-3 ATS Alabama Crimson Tide took another step in their quest to the BCS Playoffs last week with a 29-0 win over LSU as 14-point road FAVORITES ATS. Last Saturday’s highly anticipated contest was supposed to expose a weakness in the Crimson Tide, but as usual, they proved to be too much for the opponent.

2018 heisman trophy front-runner Tua Tagovailoa threw his first interception of the season in the shutout only to prove insignificant as he went 25 of 42 for 295 yards through the air with two touchdowns.

  • Alabama is 4-1 ATS their last five against teams with a winning SU record.
  • The home team is 6-2 ATS the last eight meetings between the teams.
  • UNDER bettors have cashed in 8 of the last eleven times, the two teams have played.
  • The OVER is 3-1 Alabama last four at home.

Saturday’s game is at 3:30 PM EST at noisy Bryant-Denny Stadium on campus in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. The CBS Television Network will be broadcasting.

The Opening Betting Line has Mississippi State as twenty-three point road UNDERDOGS ATS. The TOTAL is 53 points for Saturday’s contest.

Since taking over for current Florida Gator head coach Dan Mullen, Joe Moorhead is doing an admirable job his first year on the sideline in Starkville, Mississippi. However, Mullen brought his Florida team into Davis Wade Stadium on September 29th for a 13-6 win over the Bulldogs.

The Mississippi State offense is led by dual-threat quarterback Nick Fitzgerald who can do a better job trying to beat Alabama with his legs than arm. Mississippi State has rushed for (2,077) total yards on the ground which ranks 19th in the FBS. The average (6.5) yards per play which is 20th in the nation. Running Backs Aeris Williams and Kylin hill must take some of the pressure off of Fitzgerald by catching passes out of the backfield.

The Bulldogs defense hasn’t faced an offense like they’ll see Saturday and it’s the job of coordinator Bob Shoop to have them in position to make plays. Mississippi State gives up an average of (14.6) ppg, and the (288.0) total yards per contest allowed ranks fifth in the FBS.

A key to a Bulldog upset Saturday is to somehow create a few big plays on offense, they must also sustain drives to preserve their defense.

Mississippi State has been eliminated for Conference title contention.

What else can be said about Nick Saban and his Alabama Crimson Tide football team? In twelve season’s on the sidelines he’s become a legend, and in the 2018 BCS title game showed why. With his looking for a spark he came out of the locker room with an unknown quarterback by the name of Tua Tagovailoa who led the Crimson Tide to the win. The move is trying to be replicated by Clemson, Notre Dame along with many other power five football institutes.

Although everything is in place for an Alabama vs. Georgia matchup for the 2018 title game, Saban wants to go undefeated. Alabama has scored 462 total points this season which is the best in College Football. Running Backs Najee Harris (572) yards on the ground along with Damien Harris lead the 26th ranked rushing attack in the nation. South Florida native Jerry Jeudy has (880) receiving yards which are third in the SEC.

The Crimson Tide defense accepted the challenge of LSU last week by pitching their first shutout of the season, and they sacked the Tigers quarterback five times. They’re allowing (15.9) ppg while giving up (309.2) total yards per contest. Alabama gives up (4.6) yards per play which is 10th in the FBS.

Alabama has to come out and play their style of football to remain unbeaten; with the annual Iron Bowl showdown with Auburn along with a title game vs. Georgia is looming they can’t afford to become complacent.

Bovada.Lv, list the Alabama Crimson Tide at -225 to win the 2018 SEC Championship.

Los Angeles Clippers @ Portland Trailblazers NBA Betting preview for Thursday, November 8, 2018.

The (6-4) SU/ATS Los Angeles Clippers are on a two-game winning streak both SU/ATS after their 120-109 home victory over Minnesota as a five and a half point home FAVORITE ATS.

Los Angeles is tied with Sacramento for second place in the Pacific division both teams trail Golden State by three and a half games. Forwards Tobias Harris and Danilo Gallinari scored twenty-two points apiece in the win over the Timberwolves as the Clippers outscored the T-Wolves in each quarter.

  • The Clippers are 1-4 ATS the last five meetings between the teams.
  • OVER bettors have cashed in 6 of the Clippers last seven on Thursday’s.
  • The Clippers are 0-4 ATS their last four on the road vs. Teams with a winning home record.
  • The OVER has been profitable three of the Clippers last five on the road.

The (8-3) SU/ATS Portland Trailblazers have the third best record in the Western Conference behind Golden State and Denver. Portland beat an excellent Milwaukee team 118-103 SU as a two-point home UNDERDOG ATS.

They’ve won 5 of six SU, and from the looks of things, the Northwest could be the most competitive in Basketball. Denver, Minnesota, Utah, and Oklahoma City could all qualify for postseason play.

  • The OVER is 4-0 Portland last four on Thursday’s.
  • Portland is 9-1 ATS their last ten on Thursday’s.
  • Portland has stayed UNDER the total their last 3 of their last four at home.
  • UNDER bettors have cashed in 5 of Portland last six after they scored 100 or more points the previous game.

Thursday’s game is at 10:00 PM EST at the Moda Center in beautiful Portland, Oregon. The Local Television Network will be broadcasting.

The Opening Betting Line has the Clippers as five-point home FAVORITES ATS. The TOTAL is 225 points for Thursday’s contest.

Los Angeles Clippers head coach Doc Rivers seems to always have the team in the thick of the playoff hunt only to fall short when it counts the most.

Management decided to part way’s with Blake Griffin along with Chris Paul last season and DeAndre Jordan signed with Dallas in July of 2018. Rivers seems to have the new cast of characters playing with a sense of purpose. Small

Forward Tobias Harris tops the team with a (21.3) ppg scoring average on an offense that averages (116.2) ppg which ranks eighth in the league. The Clipper is especially good shooting from beyond the three-point line as Harris, Gallinari and Lou Williams averaging over 40.0% good enough to be ranked third league-wide as a unit. Even without Griffin and Jordan who were known to be terrific in the post, the Clippers are still among the top ten leading rebounding teams.

In Doc Rivers fashion his team is efficient on defense as opponents are shooting just (43.2%) good enough for fifth in the league.

The Clippers can run with any team in the league except for Golden State; the Clippers play a similar style as Portland with the only thing separating them, and that’s the star power of Portland All-Star guard Damian Lillard.

Bovada.Lv, list the Los Angeles Clippers at +3,000 to win the 2018-19 NBA Western Conference Pacific.

All seems well in the Rose City even after last season’s debacle in the first round of the playoffs. Head Coach Terry Stotts welcomes the challenges of the 2018-19 season with a competitive attitude. He’ll have too as every team in their division is capable of making the 2018 NBA Western Conference finals.

Before the season began, all of the talk surrounding the Northwest division was about the Utah Jazz, but Denver is performing at an elite level so far.

Portland averages (117.3) ppg, seventh in the NBA with Lillard leading the way with (26.7) ppg along with (5.5) assists per contest.

The first round exit against New Orleans the Blazers lost game-one by two points 97-95 but the final three the Pelicans increased their scoring. In game four Portland allowed 131-point which sent them packing for the summer; it also could have been fools gold for New Orleans who’s scoring but are challenged on defense this year.

Stotts has put a premium on defense this season, and it’s paying dividends as the Trailblazers are allowing opponents (107.4) ppg which is sixth league-wide. Portland must continue to play tight defense the way the rest of the division is trending, Denver in particular.

Bovada.Lv, list the Portland Trailblazers at +450 to win the 2018-19 NBA Western Conference Northwest Title.

It didn’t take the Pistons organization long to hire Dwane Casey after Toronto fired him following the 2018 NBA Eastern Conference Finals where Cleveland swept them. The Piston has a strong nucleus with Andre Drummond (Center), Blake Griffin (Power Forward), and Reggie Jackson (Point Guard). They see dividends from the strong post presence of Drummond and Griffin who lead the 4th ranked rebounding team in the NBA. The trio combines for more than half of the teams (110.1) points per game which rank nineteenth league-wide.

As good as they are scoring inside they struggle from beyond the three-point line shooting a dismal (39.7%), only Oklahoma City is worst from beyond the arc. Casey is known for a strong presence on defense which they’re used to as former coach Stan Van Gundy had the same philosophy.

Detroit allows (113.0) ppg to opponents which ranks 20th in the Association. The opposition shoots (46.0%) from the field and they hold opponents to (32.4%) from the three-point line.

Detroit needs a win to build confidence with a win, and with their strong inside presence, it shouldn’t be a problem Wednesday in Orlando.

Bovada.Lv, list the Detroit Pistons at +500 to win the 2018-19 NBA Eastern Conference Central Crown.

The Orlando Magic organization have had success since their existence in the NBA. There was the Shaquille O’Neal/Penny Hardaway era in which Houston swept them in the 1994 Finals. Ten years ago on the 2008-09 NBA finals, they lost 4-1 to the Lakers with Dwight Howard being the centerpiece under the leadership of Stan Van Gundy who couldn’t replicate the task in Detroit.

Current Magic head coach Frank Vogel had Indiana on the cusp of making the NBA Finals but always ran into LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh in Miami. The Magic have some young pieces to become a competitive team, but it’s going to take some time.

Orlando ranks last in the NBA scoring an average of (101.8) ppg with Center Nikola Vucevic leading the way with a (17.9) ppg average. Their 14th ranked overall defense gives up (110.5) ppg to opponents on (46.0%) shooting. Power Forward Aaron Gordon is second on the team scoring (16.1) ppg and is as versatile as you can get at the position.

However, their most talented player is second-year player Jonathan Isaac who must get stronger if he wants to become a star in the league. Orlando is a year away from competing at an elite level, but with Washington playing below their capabilities the division is wide-open this season.

Orlando must shoot the basketball with more consistency to get a win Wednesday; they’ll have their handsful with Griffin and Drummond in the post.

Bovada.Lv, list the Orlando Magic at +1,600 to win the 2018-19 NBA Eastern Conference Southeast Division.
