The (10-7) SU, (8-9) ATS Philadelphia Eagles began their quest for another Championship last Sunday in the wildcard round with a 16-15 victory over the Chicago Bears as 6′ point road UNDERDOG ATS.

Quarterback Nick Foles continued to blossom in the postseason but threw two interceptions. However, it didn’t matter due to a missed Bears field goal as time expired.

  • Philadelphia is 1-4 AGAINST THE Point SPREAD the last five between the teams.
  • The Eagles are 3-0 AGAINST THE SPREAD their last three on the road.
  • The UNDER is 4-2 Philadelphia last six on the road.
  • OVER bettors have made profits 6 of the last nine times the teams have played.

The (13-3) SU, (10-6) ATS New Orleans Saints got a bye last week but lost to Carolina 33-14 in the regular season finale as 8 point home FAVORITES ATS. Regardless of how Nick Foles has performed when it counts Drew Brees is better.

New Orleans easily took down the Eagles 48-7 on November 18, 2018, as 7 point home FAVORITES ATS and have won 4 of the last five between the teams both SU and AGAINST THE SPREAD.

  • OVER bettors have cashed the last 6 Saints playoff games at home.
  • The UNDER is 5-1 New Orleans last five vs. NFC opponents.
  • The OVER is 9-4 New Orleans last thirteen in NOLA.
  • New Orleans is 1-4 ATS their last five overall.

Kickoff will be Sunday, January 13, 2019. Game time is 4:25 PM EST at Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. The FOX Television Network will be broadcasting.

The current Betting Line has New Orleans as 8 point home FAVORITES ATS. The TOTAL is 51′ Points for Sunday’s contest.

Fans in the city of Brotherly Love watched their Eagles advance to the divisional round last Sunday against a Chicago team that took down Minnesota to get Philadelphia in the postseason in the first place. They weren’t satisfied with the favor, and now they’ll face a team they’ve beaten two of the last three times in postseason action. Coached by Chip Kelly with Foles under center the Eagles beat New Orleans 26-24 in a 2014 home wildcard contest.

Although New Orleans crushed the Eagles in the 2018-19 regular season head coach Doug Pederson is downplaying the revenge factor. However, it still left a bad taste in many Eagles mouths.

It’s a different season in a looser game home, and the Eagles have won six of seven since the loss to the Saints. Quarterback Nick Foles who’s in his comfort zone is undefeated since taking over for starter Carson Wentz.

The game could come down to the time of possession which the Eagles (32:32) minutes of offense ranks number one in the NFL. The Eagles coaching staff also understand the Saints have the league’s top run defense; meaning Foles with have to make plays in uncomfortable situations.

On the other side of the Football defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz safety, Malcolm Jenkins along with tackle Fletcher co will be ready for battle.

The Best NFL Handicapper is 9-0 when going on or against the Eagles ATS this season.

Bovada.Lv, list the Philadelphia Eagles at +1,200 to win Super Bowl LIII.

 

It’s already a festive atmosphere in and around the Bayou with Mardi Gras on the horizon and what’s better to go along with the annual festival? A Saints home playoff game. These two teams should have played in the 2018 NFC Championship game, but the miracle in Minnesota sent the Saints home.

New Orleans is a perfect 5-0 at home in the playoffs in the Sean Payton era. The Saints explosive offense ranks second league-wide with (31.5), total yards (379.2), and rushing yards (126.6) per contest. Did we forget to mention a Hall of Fame quarterback at the helm who has elite weapons at every skilled position one can imagine?

Running Back Alvin Kamara has (1,500 yards) rushing and (1,500 yards) receiving in his first two seasons as a pro; he’s one of two players to own the honor. Drew Brees will do everything imaginable to get Kamara one on one with Eagles linebackers while Mark Ingram (5.0) yards per carrying attempts soften them up with the run.

The X-Factor Sunday could be Saints backup quarterback/utility player Taysom Hill who’ll make an impact in some area. Defensive Coordinator Dennis Allen must get a pass rush from Cameron Jordan and rookie Marcus Davenports while nose tackle Sheldon Rankins stops the run. The Eagles will take their shots against a New Orleans secondary that allows (288.9)yards per game through the air.

The NFL betting experts Charliessports.com is 15-2 the past two NFL season’s involving New Orleans Saints OVER/UNDERS

Bovada. Lv, list the New Orleans Saints at +225 to win the 2019 Super Bowl.

Utah Jazz @ Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Betting Betting Preview for Friday. January 4, 2019.

Written by NBA Expert Point Spread Analyst Bobby Wallace.

Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball Betting. NBA Daily Betting Picks are the best in the industry and will continue through the NBA Finals in June of 2019. We’re always providing BETTOR Friendly cards. Our signature 500* premium ATS Predictions are unreal & I promise you won’t regret purchasing, cash in Daily.

The (18-20) SU, (18-19-1) ATS Utah Jazz were beaten by Toronto 122-116 as 1′ point road FAVORITES ATS on New Year’s Day. Jae Crowder led all scorers with 30 points as Utah gave up 44 third-quarter points in a pathetic defensive effort.

They’re playing the second of a four-game road trip which end in Milwaukee on the 9th.

  • Utah is 4-0-1 AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD their last five after an SU defeat.
  • The Under is 3-1 Utah last four on the road.
  • UNDER bettors have made profits in Utah last four on the road vs. Teams with an SU losing record.
  • The Jazz is 5-0-1 ATS the last six between the teams.

The (8-30) SU, (18-10) ATS Cleveland Cavaliers are looking to end a seven-game SU losing streak after a 117-92 defeat at the hands of Miami as 5′ point home UNDERDOGS ATS.

Forward Kevin Love is getting set for basketball-related activities after undergoing foot surgery in November, but there’s no timetable for his return on the court. Cleveland owns the worst record in the NBA as we enter 2019.

  • Cleveland is 0-5 ATS their last five on Friday’s.
  • The Cavaliers are 0-4 AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD their last four at home.
  • The OVER is 7-1 Cleveland last eight at home.
  • UNDER bettors have cashed in the last five times, the teams have played.

Friday’s game is 7:30 PM EST at Quickens Loan Arena in Cleveland, Ohio. The Local Network will be broadcasting. The Betting Line has Cleveland as 9 point home UNDERDOGS ATS. The TOTAL is 208′ points for Friday’s contest.

 

Expectations around the NBA for the Utah Jazz were prematurely high after a tremendous 2018 postseason. However, the Jazz finds themselves in an unpopular position as far as the standings are concerned.

Head Coach Quinn Snyder insists his guys aren’t panicking but also indicated tonight’s game is critical for team confidence. It’s been seven years since Utah has been victorious in Cleveland, but that’s when they were competing against the likes of LeBron James or Kyrie Irving. Sharp Shooter Kyle Korver returns to Cleveland for the first time since getting traded for Alec Burks while the Cavaliers Rodney Hood also looks forward to seeing his old teammates.

Guard Donovan Mitchell (20.8) points per game lead the leagues 21st ranked offense that scores (107.7) ppg. Point Guard Ricky Rubio is questionable tonight with a minor foot injury which could affect ball distribution. Utah shoots (46.3%) from the field which ranks 13th league-wide.

What bothers the coaching staff is their effort on defense in Toronto, they allow opponents (106.1) points per contest and 144 is unacceptable. They also understand it was New Years and Toronto is city players like to frequent although the weather is frigid.

Utah will face two former players who’ll be looking to take their abilities to new heights tonight; they must stick to the game plan by getting the ball to Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors in the post.

Bovada.Lv list the Utah Jazz win total at 49′ games for 2018-19.

 

After the departure of LeBron James the Cleveland Cavaliers face many dilemmas in the first month of 2019. Owner Dan Gilbert fired Tyronn Lue earlier in the season, replacing him with Larry Drew on an interim basis.

Nothing is working, and now they’re in the hunt for Duke star Zion Williamson who’ll enter the 2019 NBA draft and it in some circles being compared to the King.

Trade rumors are swirling surrounding Kevin Love who’s talent could land him in the Western Conference when he becomes healthy. For now, the coaching staff remembers the production of Donovan Mitchell in two appearances last year averaging (27.5) ppg while shooting (63.6%) and that was against a team that played Golden State in the NBA Finals.

The Cavaliers allows opponents a league-worst (48.7%) from the field which should have Mitchell licking his chops. Jordan Clarkson (16.9) ppg leads the leagues 28th ranked scoring offense that puts up (102.0) points per contest while rookie Colin Sexton (14.7) ppg is playing up to expectations. The former Alabama Crimson Tide point guard looks forward to facing Rubio if he’s available.

Cleveland doesn’t have a star in the lineup since Love is on the shelf and their dependency of James no longer an option they’ll lose but cover the POINT SPREAD tonight.

Bovada.Lv list the Cleveland Cavaliers win total at 30′ games for 2018-19.

Wichita State Shockers @ Memphis Tigers NCAA Basketball Betting Preview for Thursday, January 3, 2019.

Written by College Basketball Expert Analyst Bobby Wallace.

Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball Betting. NCAA Basketball ATS Picks are the best in the industry and will continue through the March Madness Finals in April of 2019. We’re always providing BETTOR Friendly cards.

Our signature 500* premium ATS Predictions are unreal & I promise you won’t regret purchasing, cash in Daily.

The (7-5) SU, (6-6) ATS Wichita State Shockers lost to VCU 70-54 their last game on December 22, 2018, as 5′ point road UNDERDOGS ATS.

Wichita State committed 17 turnovers in the loss at VCU which is uncharacteristic of a Gregg Marshall coached  team. Tonight will be the first conference game of the season for Wichita State who enter their second season in the AAC.

  • Wichita State is 2-3-1 AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD their last six on the road.
  • The UNDER is 3-2 the Shockers last five away from home.
  • The Shockers have stayed UNDER the total in 7 of their last ten overall.
  • Wichita State is 1-4 ATS their last five overall.

The (8-5) SU, (8-4-1) Memphis Tigers look to extend their three-game winning streak after a 96-65 victory over Florida A&M as 24 point home FAVORITES ATS.

Guard Jeremiah Martin scored a game-high 22 points for Memphis while highly-touted freshman Alex Lomax had six. Four of six signees this season played at the prep level in Memphis including Lomax, Martin is also a native.

  • Memphis is 4-2 ATS their last six at home.
  • OVER bettors have made a profit in 6 of Memphis last eight at home.
  • The Tigers are 0-2 AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD all-time vs. Wichita State.
  • The OVER is 1-1 the two meetings between the teams.

Thursday’s game is at 9:30 PM EST at FedExForum in Memphis, Tennessee. The CBSSN Television Network will be broadcasting.

The Betting Line has Wichita State as 6′ point road UNDERDOGS ATS ATS. The TOTAL is 154 points for Thursday’s contest.

 

It’s been seven seasons since Wichita State made it to the NCAA March Madness Final Four with current NBA players Ron Bakers and Fred Van Vleet.

Make no mistake Wichita State will always play second fiddle to the Kansas Jayhawks in the Sunflower State. However, Gregg Marshall has built something special in the state largest city, but they’re in jeopardy of missing out on the NCAA Tournament which is a concern.

There’s a little bit of a twist to tonight’s game which baffled the Wichita State coaching staff involving Memphis guard Alex Lomax. The Shockers had gotten a letter of intent from the young man but after Penny Hardaway was hired at to coach the Tigers Lomax wanted to stay in his hometown. Marshall granted him his wishes without incident which is admirable in this day and age. Lomax probably wishes he would’ve honored his commitment to Wichita State as he’s having a tough time early. The feisty point guard was recently benched in favor of another freshman; always stick with your first choice.

Tonight is a critical game for Wichita State who’ll be playing four consecutive against the conferences, elite teams. Senior Markis McDuffie (18.9) ppg leads the team in scoring and now must take control in the locker room.

Taking care of the ball is the key to a shockers wins.

Bovada.Lv list the Wichita State Shockers at 40/1 win the 2019 March Madness title. Total at 14 games for 2018-19.

Former NBA star Penny Hardaway is in his first season on the bench at his alma Mater with high expectations around the basketball-crazed city.

The Tigers haven’t made it to the NCAA Tournament since 2014 which was in the Josh Pastner era. Tubby Smith couldn’t bring winning back and now the faithful turn to one of the best to ever come out of the City.

Memphis has increased their pace with Hardaway averaging (85.1) point per contest on (46.5%) shooting from the field. They allow opponents (77.2) ppg and Wichita State scores (70.2) ppg, but if the Shockers get hot, it could be a problem for Memphis. The Tigers can force turnovers which concerns the Wichita State coaching staff. They watched their team struggle taking care of the basketball at VCU Hardaway is looking to put his stamp on a program where he played, and they’re expecting a capacity crowd tonight.

Memphis will allow Wichita State to shoot beyond the three-point line where the Shockers are at (31.0%) averaging (23.7) attempts per contest. The Tigers want to speed the game up, but Marshall is a seasoned veteran coach who understands situational basketball. Although Hardaway played at the highest level, it doesn’t always translate to managing egos.

This Sports Handicapper believes the Tigers are going to have a tough time tonight; call it the Gregg Marshall effect.

Bovada.Lv, list the Memphis Tigers at 200/1 to win the 2019 NCAA Tournament.

The (17-21) SU, (16-22) ATS New Orleans Pelicans beat Minnesota on New Year’s Eve 123-114 as 5′ point home FAVORITES AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD. New Orleans.

They won the game without the services of star Anthony Davis who was out with an illness; he’s listed a probable tonight. After losing 7 of ten SU, the Pelicans are last in the Southwest division.

  • New Orleans has covered the POINT SPREAD 7 of the last ten between the teams.
  • The Pelicans are 0-7 ATS their last seven following a POINT SPREAD cover.
  • UNDER bettors have made profits the Pelicans last four after an SU victory.
  • The OVER is 21-5 the last twenty-six times the teams have played.

The (17-21) SU, (19-19) ATS Brooklyn Nets have lost two consecutive, the latest a 129-115 defeat by Milwaukee as 11 point road UNDERDOGS ATS.

Brooklyn went through a stretch in December where they won seven in a row as they look to get back on track tonight. There’s still a lot of Basketball left, but the Nets are 1/2 game behind Detroit for the eight-seed in the East.

  • OVER bettors have cashed in 5 of the Nets last eight at home.
  • The OVER is 10-4 the last fourteen between the teams in Brooklyn.
  • The Nets are 4-0 ATS their last four after 3 or more days of rest.
  • Brooklyn has covered the POINT SPREAD their last four on Wednesday’s.

Wednesday’s game is 7:30 PM EST at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The Local Television Network will be broadcasting.

The Betting Line has the Brooklyn as 1 point home UNDERDOGS ATS. The TOTAL is 230 points for Wednesday’s contest.

It’s a festive time of the year in New Orleans with the NFL Saints having home-field advantage through the 2018-19 playoff along with the annual Mardi Gras on the horizon.

After sweeping Portland in the first round of last season’s NBA Playoffs, the New Orleans Pelicans were sent packing the next series, losing 4-1 to Golden State.

Expectations were high to begin this season, and they held serve with a 4-0 record to start 2018 until an injury to point guard Elfrid Payton. With the former University of Louisiana Ragin Cajuns star in the lineup, they won six of seven. Now that he’s back they have one of the best on-ball defenders in the league which should improve their 26th ranked defense that allow opponents (115.3) points per contest.

New Orleans is 4-15 on the road this season, and tonight they need to get back on track against a Brooklyn team they’ve beaten 9 of the last ten, including a 117-115 victory on October 26th of this season. With Payton scoring 17 points.

Anthony Davis (27.7) ppg is an elite talent that can carry a franchise on his back. Guard Jrue Holiday is soiled at both ends of the floor and is shooting (47%) from the field. Power forward Julius Randle (19.9) ppg with (9.4) rebounds per game could be the league’s most improved player since coming over from the Lakers. The defense will determine a lot tonight.

The Best team of NBA Handicappers at Charliessports.com have won 5 of 6 involving New Orleans OVER/UNDER bets this season.

 

Bovada.Lv list the New Orleans Pelicans win total at 45′ games for 2018-19.

Brooklyn Nets head coach Kenny Atkinson will have his team ready for action tonight before they’ll play 6 of their next eight on the road. The Nets have experienced success this season even without star Caris LeVert out of the lineup.

For this first time in a while, the Nets are in the playoff race, but it’s essential that they continue to grow as a team. Guards D’Angelo Russell (17.9) points per game along with Spencer Dinwiddie (17.5) ppg have been doing a masterful job in the backcourt. However, it’s been the play of Joe Harris (13.4) who caught the eye of the coaching staff with clutch shooting.

Since making rookie Rodions Kurucs part of the rotation, Brooklyn has won 9 of twelve games entering the first of the year. They’ve beaten the Lakers, Raptors, and 76ers at home this season, so they won’t be intimidated by New Orleans who has Anthony Davis. The Nets offense averages (110.6) ppg with the (36.0%) they shoot from three-point land ranking 8th in the NBA.

The front office hit on drafting Center Jarrett Allen who along with Ed Davis gives the team a strong presence in the post. Allen is an elite shot blocker who’s learning how to finish shots around the rim; he’ll have his work cut out tonight with David and Randle.

The Nets should have plenty of energy after having 3-days off, but it’ll show in their defensive intensity tonight, especially on Davis around the basket.

This Sports Handicapper has also won 11 of his last 13 ATS in games involving the Brooklyn Nets.

Bovada.Lv list the Brooklyn Nets win total at 32 games for 2018-19.

Philadelphia 76ers @ Los Angeles Clippers NBA Betting Betting Preview for Tuesday. January 1, 2019.

The (23-14) SU, (17-20) ATS Philadelphia 76ers were defeated at Portland 129-95 on December 30th as 3 point road UNDERDOGS ATS on their current four-game road trip.

Portland led 70-41 at halftime and never let up as Ben Simmons led the 76ers with 19 points. Philadelphia will visit the Grand Canyon State to take on Phoenix on Wednesday before entertaining Dallas on January 5th.

  • Philadelphia is 0-4 AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD their last four on Tuesday’s.
  • The 76ers are 6-0 ATS the last six between the teams.
  • UNDER bettors have made a profit 3 of the last four between the teams.
  • The OVER is 3-2 Philadelphia last five on the road.

The (21-15) SU/ATS Los Angeles Clippers lost to San Antonio as 3 point home FAVORITES ATS on December 29th ending a two-game winning streak.

Montrezl Harrell came off the bench to score 21 points in defeat while Danilo Gallinari led the starters with twenty-one. The Clippers are three games behind Golden State for supremacy in the Pacific division.

  • OVER bettors has cashed in the Clippers last six at home.
  • The Clippers are 0-4 ATS their last four on Tuesday’s.
  • The Clippers are 3-4 ATS their last seven at home.
  • OVER bettors have made profits in 7 of the Clipper last ten overall

Tuesday’s game is 10:030 PM EST at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. The Local Television Network will be broadcasting.

The Betting Line has the Clippers as 1′ point home FAVORITES ATS. The TOTAL is 235 points for Tuesday’s contest.

With the recent addition of Jimmy Butler Philadelphia 76ers head coach Brett Brown has concerns about young stars Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid. It’s always the case when a veteran is inserted into a system with talented youth, ego’s take over. General Manager Elton Brand must find a way for it to work if the 76ers are to soar too elite status.

The 76ers offense averages (114.0) points per game which ranks 6th overall in the NBA while the (112.1) ppg they        allow to opponents is 23rd.

Embiid (26.5) points per contest lead the 76ers in scoring is turning into one of the best post players in basketball with an ability to play outside as well as under the basket. However, he’s struggling with a minor knee injury, and his status is uncertain tonight.

Simmons is also an intriguing player who’ll be a household name for years to come. Butler, on the other hand, is a fighter who was once homeless as a teenager and doesn’t take well to the primadonna athlete of this era.

Fans in the City of Brotherly Love believes the three players have what it takes to bring them an NBA title. They also need to mature which shows as they’ve won just 6 of their last twenty-one games on the road.

The Handicapping experts at Charliessports.com  is hoping the 76ers begin to bring effort at the defensive end on a regular basis; it must start tonight as the effort in Portland was pathetic.

Bovada.Lv list the Philadelphia 76ers win total at 53′ games for 2018-19.

The Los Angeles Clippers couldn’t find their rhythm in their home loss to San Antonio, and they also allowed the Spurs interior players to shoot freely around the basket. Head Coach Doc Rivers is doing a masterful job on the bench since the Chris Paul era ended.

Los Angeles scores (115.9) points per contest, Danilo Gallinari has scored 21 points or more in 6 of the last eight games. As much trouble as the Clippers had their previous game with LaMarcus Aldridge they’ll be extra concerned with Embiid if he’s available Tuesday.

Guard Lou Williams (18.1) ppg continues to play through a minor hamstring injury while leading scorer Tobias Harris (21.0) ppg is their most consistent player. The Clippers are in the right spot in the Western Conference; they’re the four seed to begin the new year. However, Rivers and his staff understand if they are going to compete in the playoffs the (114.7) ppg they allow opponents must improve and it has to begin tonight against a talented Philadelphia team.

Teams in the final game of road trips tend to struggle, especially after the holidays. The Clippers can score the basketball but what will the mindset be? Williams is 32 years, and Rivers must lean on him to lead.

This Sports Handicapper believes Defense, and more Defense is what will get the POINT SPREAD cover for the Clippers tonight.

Bovada.Lv list the Los Angeles Clippers win total at 36′ games for 2018-19.
