Marquette has beaten Creighton twice this season but needs to get to the quarterfinals to improve their NCAA Tournament resume’.

The opening betting line has Marquette as a six-point favorite against the spread on a neutral court. The betting odds total is not available for Wednesday’s game.


The DePaul Blue Demons lost five of six to end the 2018 regular season with the lone win coming in the span against Wednesday’s opponent.

DePaul finished at the bottom of the standings with just four Big East wins. Head Coach Dave Leitao is in his second stint as the head coach of the DePaul basketball program, the first 2003-05 with an NCAA Tournament appearance.

His second began in 2015, and this could be his last go around unless his team can make some noise in the annual spectacle.

DePaul University has access to some of the best high school talents in the nation with its location in Chicago, and it’s been nearly three-decade since Ray Meyer was able to land big-time players from the “WINDY CITY.”

Guard Max Strus is the team’s leading scorer with sixteen and a half points per game. The Blue Demons have a few talented players who can put the ball in the bucket.

The key to a DePaul win is to guard the three-point line with authority, Marquette can shoot the long ball with the best in the nation.

Marquette is a prolific scoring team averaging nearly eighty-two points per game.

The basketball program parted ways with former guard Haanif Cheatham earlier in the season.

However, sharpshooters Markus Howard, Andrew Rowsey, and Sam Hauser can score the basketball with the best players in the College Basketball landscape.

Marquette must push the ball at every chance; they can’t allow DePaul to set their defense.

The Siena Saints have had their share of problems on and off the court this season; it shows with their record.

Head Coach Jimmy Patsos is in his fifth season on the bench at Siena, and it could be his last. The Saints have lost eight of their last ten including four in a row.

Siena has not been very efficient covering the Las Vegas number, going 3-6-1 ATS their last ten games.

Freshman Guard Roman Penn is the future of the program but scores just nine points per game. Forward Prince Oduro is another freshman contributor at the forward positions.

The duo has done some growing up this season, but it should pay dividends in the futures. Siena will have the home crowd rooting for them to advance, but they may not have enough fire-power to advance.

It’s been an emotionally draining season for the Saints who used to dominate the MAAC.

Bovada.Lv has the Siena Saints at 200 to 1 to win the 2018 NCAA Basketball Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament Crown.


The 2018 Quinnipiac Bobcats have lost three n a row including their regular season overtime road finale at the hands of Manhattan.

Quinnipiac could be tired after the long game Sunday. However, they understand this is the Conference Tournament as want a chance to play Canisius with a victory in the first round.

The Bobcats are 2-0 this season against Siena, and it’s tough to win three in a row in one season over the same opponent.

Quinnipiac scores an average of seventy-one points per game while allowing the opposition 77.2 ppg.

Senior Guard Cameron Young is the team’s leading scorer; he must take control of the game early if the Bobcats are to pull out the win. Forward Chaise Daniels must also contribute at both ends of the court.

Siena will try to impose their will with a slow pace contest, the Bobcats must counter by pushing the ball at every chance.

Bovada.Lv lists the 2018 Quinnipiac Bobcats at 50 to 1 to win the MAAC Basketball Tournament Title.

Free 2018 NBA Expert Betting Picks, News, and Odds: Portland Trailblazer’s at Utah Jazz.

Written and authored by National Basketball Association Expert Analyst Greg Nelson. produces it for Basketball news and notes.

NBA Predictions are the best in the business and again will win again at an unbelievable rate through the NBA Finals in June of 2018.

The (32-26) Portland Trailblazers of the Western Conference Northwest division are in the “BEEHIVE STATE” for a divisional matchup.

Portland takes on the (30-28) Utah Jazz also of the Western Conference Northwest. Tip-off is 9:05 PM EST. The game is on Friday, February 23, 2018.

The teams will play at the Vivint Smart Home Arena in scenic Salt Lake City, Utah. The Local Television network will broadcast the game.

The Portland Trailblazer franchise is one of the most consistent in the NBA landscape but when will they become true playoff competitors in the Western Conference?

Utah is playing much better than experts thought after the defection of Gordon Hayward to Baston is the offseason.

Rookie Donovan Mitchell is turning heads around the league and won the “SLAM DUNK” contest at All-Star weekend.

The Opening Betting line has the Portland Trailblazers as a four-point road underdog against the spread. The Betting Odds Total is 206 and a half points for Friday’s contest.


The 2018 Portland Trailblazer’s are forth in the tight Northwest division, two and a half games behind first-place Minnesota.

Portland has lost both games to Utah this season both straight up and against the point spread.

Head Coach Terry Stotts is in his sixth season on the bench in “RIP CITY” and is doing an adequate job. However, the franchise understands point guard Damian Lillard wants a chance to win an NBA title. The Oakland, California native is the team’s best player and leading scorer.

Backcourt mate C.J. McCollum is second with a little over twenty-one points per game. The dynamic duo is one of the best young tandems of guards in the league.

Offensively the Trailblazers are a middle of the pack team, and they could be more aggressive on defense which Stotts preaches daily.

Portland has lost both games to Utah this season and needs a dominating performance again from Lillard and McCollum to get a victory.

Bovada.Lv lists the 2017-18 Portland Trailblazer’s at +1,800 to win the Northwest Division Title.


The Utah Jazz is last in the Northwest, just four and a half games out of first place. Utah has a losing record against division opponents.

However, they could be playing in the most competitive divisions in the NBA. Minnesota, Oklahoma City, and Denver are in the top three slots.

Utah is one of the hottest teams in the “ASSOCIATION” with a ten game winning streak and are 7-3 ATS in the span.

Head Coach Quin Snyder and Executive Dennis Lindsey should be in consideration for coach and general manager of the year.

As usual, the Utah Jazz is at the top of the league in points allowed by the opposition per game; they rank fourth.

Rookie Guard Donovan Mitchell is the team’s best player. Power Forward Derrick Favors is still in a Jazz uniform after many experts thought he would get traded before the deadline.

The key to a Jazz win is to perform well at what they do best, and that plays tight defense.

Bovada.Lv has the Utah Jazz at 8,000 to win 2017-18 Western Conference Championship.

The Best NBA ATS Picks, News, and Odds For Wednesday, February 7, 2018: Miami Heat at Toronto Raptors.

Written and authored by National Basketball Association Expert Analyst Charlie Red McDougall. produces it for Basketball news and notes.

Basketball Expert Predictions are the best in the business and again will win again at an unbelievable rate through the NBA Finals in June of 2018.

The (30-26) Miami Heat of the Eastern Conference Southeast division is “NORTH OF THE BORDER” for a conference matchup. Miami takes on the (39-16) Toronto Raptors of the Eastern Conference Atlantic.

Tip-off is 7:00 PM EST. The game is on Tuesday, February 13, 2018. The teams will play at Air Canada Centre in Maple Leaf Square in frigid Toronto, Ontario.

Local Television networks will broadcast the game.

The Miami Heat brought local hero Dwyane Wade back at the trade deadline, and fans in South Florida are ecstatic. Can the Heat become relevant in the East? Probably not.

Toronto is one of the top three teams in the Eastern Conference, but they can’t seem to take the next step. What is it going to take for the Raptors to get over the hump?

The Opening Betting line has the Toronto Raptors as an eight-point home favorite against the spread. The Betting Odds Total is 207 And A Half Points for Tuesday’s contest.


The Miami Heat beat Toronto once this season at the Air Canada Centre in a close contest in which point guard Goran Dragic and DeMar DeRozan of Toronto got into a shoving match at the final buzzer.

Miami broke of the five-game losing streak against Milwaukee last Friday in the return of Dwyane Wade.

General Manager Pat Riley called the return of the franchises most recognizable star unbelievable.

How much the team will improve is still the question, and this sports handicapper doesn’t think it will help a bit. The thirty-six-year-old future hall of fame was brought back for the curtain call of his career.

The Miami Heat are second in the Southeast division and should get a postseason berth, but they will get outed in the first round.

Miami ranks third in the “ASSOCIATION” defensively, allowing opponents just 101.1 ppg.

Miami finds a ways to score easy baskets in the post and head coach Erik Spoelstra wants to go into the All-Star break on a positive note.

Bovada.Lv lists the 2018 Miami Heat at +1,110 to win the Eastern Conference Southeast Division Title.


The 2018 Toronto Raptors are on top of the standings in the Atlantic division, just a half-game in front of the slumping Boston Celtics.

Toronto has the best home record in the NBA with only four losses and is also good to point spread bettors.

The Raptors are on a five-game winning streak both straight up and to the number.

Head Coach Dwane Casey is in his seventh season on the bench and is one of the best motivators in the NBA.

The Raptors are in the top ten in the league scoring the basketball and defensively. The backcourt of DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry is one of the best in the East; they have been playing alongside on and other for quite some time.

Center Jonas Valanciunas and Power Forward Serge Ibaka makes them a dangerous team in the postseason. Could the 2018 season be the year the Toronto Raptors get into the NBA Finals?

Bovada.Lv has the 2018 Toronto Raptors at +700 to win the Eastern Conference Championship.

2018 NBA Expert Predictions, News, Notes, and Odds: Cavaliers organization finally standing up to LeBron.

Written and authored National Basketball Association Expert Analyst Bobby Wallace. produces it for Basketball Betting purposes.

NBA Point Spread Picks are the best in the business and again will win again at an unbelievable rate through the NBA Finals in June of 2018.

The Cleveland Cavaliers organization won the 2016 NBA Finals, beating the Golden State Warriors in a best of seven games series.

The Championship but LeBron James who is an Akron, Ohio native on the “MOUNT RUSHMORE” of great athletes from the Buckeye State.

Owner Dan Gilbert also took a lot of credit by humbling himself and bringing the “KING” back to the “LAND.” Gilbert should have also realized it comes with a price and the owner of Quicken Loans let James begin to make personnel decisions.

LeBron James is an outspoken athlete who wears his political views on his chest. Not always a good thing for a star athlete to do, even in the current toxic political climate.

Former first overall draft pick Kyrie Irving got tired of James continually pressuring management to upgrade an already impressive roster.


Kyrie Irving no longer wanted to listen to LeBron James quotes about the team not having enough talent and demanded a trade.

The Cleveland Cavaliers organizations seem to be following Irving’s lead as they held a fire sale bringing in more youth and getting rid of overpaid veterans.

Cleveland traded guard Isaiah Thomas, center Channing Frye and their 2018 first-round pick to the Los Angeles Lakers for guard Jordan Clarkson and, forward Larry Nance Jr.

It also doesn’t matter that Dwyane Wade is LeBron James best friend, the Cavaliers ship “D-WADE” back to Miami for a second-round pick.

Also, wearing a Cavalier uniform for the rest of the season will be former Utah sharpshooter Rodney Hood and Kings point guard George Hill.

Derrick Rose is out of Northeast, Ohio and is a member of the Utah Jazz, how will the spoiled former top overall pick like living in the Salt Lake City?


The trade sends a positive message to basketball fans everywhere, and owner Dan Gilbert will no longer let LeBron James hold the organization hostage.

The move shows Cleveland Cavaliers fans that they want to compete this season and beyond with or without LeBron James.

Although James is the best player in the World, by a slim margin, they don’t care if he comes back in the 2018-19 season or not.

This Sports handicapper believes Cleveland will now contend for the 2017 NBA title and James can concentrate on playing basketball instead of multitasking within the organization.

The move is so bold by management that James will change his mind about exercising his option as a free agent at the end of the season and stay in Cleveland.

Great move by the Cavaliers management and the people of Cleveland will see immediate dividends on the court.

George Hill is just as good as Isaiah Thomas and doesn’t need to be pampered. Larry Nance Jr is a budding star, and Jordan Clarkson is an excellent complimentary player.

Rodney Hood has JR Smith type ability from beyond the arc.

2018-19 Football Predictions, News, and Notes: Charliessports rating Quarterbacks for the 2018 NFL draft.

Written and authored National Football League Expert Analyst Greg Nelson. produces it for NFL Betting purposes.

Daily Sports Betting Picks are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the entire NBA, NCAA Basketball, March Madness, and MLB landscape.

One name in the 2018 NFL draft call at the quarterback position keeps popping up, and it’s Josh Allen of the University of Wyoming.

This Sports Handicapper watched the highly touted signal caller on a few occasions, and the results were always the same, average at best.

The Mountain West Conference isn’t exactly a hotbed for signal callers, but Brett Rypien of Boise State and Nick Stevens of Colorado State looked better at under center. The NFL draft isn’t an exact science, and rating quarterbacks are even tricker.

Most highly touted players at the position don’t last due to various circumstances.

Looking back both Tom Brady, and Nick Foles who will quarterback in the 2018 Super Bowl didn’t get a look until the third round.

In Bardy’s case, he wasn’t even on a lot of teams board, and he’ll go down as the greatest of all time. NFL scouts can do all of the physical and mental testings they want, and it’s still a coin toss.

Take for instance Ryan Leaf, and Vince Young, both players, had character issues coming out of College and their coaches knew but drafted them high anyway.

1. Sam Darnold: USC is top rated signal caller, at six foot four inches with a cannon of an arm Darnold seems to have a natural knack for throwing the intermediate pass. The Southern California native is also an outstanding basketball player, like a former number one pick Sam Bradford which tell us he has natural footwork in the pocket. Darnold was on the AAU circuit as a prep star on the hardwood, and it will pay dividends for an NFL team.

2. Baker Mayfield of the University of Oklahoma and 2018 Heisman trophy winner is a Johnny Manziel clone who displays the same kind of immature behavior off the field.
However, scouts can’t discount the desire to and lead teammates in critical moments.

3. Mason Rudolph: Oklahoma State the Rock Hill, South Carolina native is a little rough around the edges but seems to keep a level head and demeanor on both in the huddle and on the sideline. His struggles against Mayfield and the Oklahoma Sooners over the past few season’s brought distracters. Rudolph is six foot five inches and looks the part; many scouts believe he will be on the board on day two of the 2018 NFL draft. Charliessports thinks Rudolph will be gone in the top of round one.

4. Josh Rosen: UCLA is the purest of the class at the quarterback position with a natural throwing motion which looks effortless. However Rosen is prone to injury, he spent to much time in the training room for our liking but will go in the first round.

5. Riley Ferguson: Memphis won some big games in the Liberty Bowl and if his predecessor Paxton Lynch can go high in the draft then so should Ferguson. The knock on the former University of Tennessee recruit is his skinny frame, but he can sling the ball. Ferguson seem’s to have a knack for hitting his target in stride, mostly for touchdowns in the Tigers spread offense.

6. JT Barrett: Ohio State is undoubtedly not a first round talent but the Wichita Fall, Texas native is the kind of player coaches want on their team. Urban Meyer stuck with him for four years through thick and thin. Barrett brings a multiple skill set and is a quick learner, when the competition heats up he will not back down from the challenge. Needs work but will get a shot.

7. Kenny Hill: TCU began his career at Texas A&M and the Aggies faithful thought they had their next Heisman winner after a season-opening performance over Steve Spurrier and South Carolina. However it was short-lived, and Hill transferred to TCU, but the talent is there, almost comparable to Mayfield in many ways as both a passer and ability to extend plays.

2018 NFL Playoffs Divisional Picks, News, and Odds: Week-Two of Postseason could bring surprises.

Written and authored by National Football League Expert Analyst Bobby Wallace. produces it for Football Betting news and notes.

NFL Weekly ATS Predictions are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the entire NBA, NCAA Basketball, March Madness, NFL Playoffs, and MLB landscape.

What a wildcard weekend it was last Saturday and Sunday.

It was especially intriguing for Point Spread Bettors as the “DOGS WERE BARKING” all four underdogs covered the point spread with three of the four-game staying under the betting odds total.

Both the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Rams hosted wildcard games, and neither will be playing in the divisional round.

Tennessee held Kansas City scoreless in the second half after falling behind early in the game while the Rams got hit in the mouth form the opening kickoff until the final whistle.

Sunday’s action was just the opposites both home teams held serve. Jacksonville beat the Buffalo Bills in an ugly defensive slugfest.

The New Orleans Saints took care of NFC South rivals Carolina in somewhat of a shootout, it was the third time New Orleans beat Carolina this season.


Saturday, January 13th is right around the corner, and the action gets started with the Philadelphia Eagles hosting the Atlanta Falcons, and the betting line is throwing bettors for a loop.

However, the sports handicapping experts at understands with the absence of Carson Wentz will probably make a difference in the game.

Fans in the “CITY OF BROTHERLY LOVE” will do everything in their power to root the Eagles to victory.

Philadelphia is a tough place for a visiting team in the playoffs.

The upstart Tennessee Titans will travel to the “BAY STATE” for their second-round matchup with the mighty New England Patriots.

Tennessee has nothing to lose they are embracing a chance to end the “DYNASTY.” New England has some turmoil or for lack of a better term a power struggle within the ranks.

Patriots fans have seen this before, but with a forty-year-old signal caller and a head coach who is the longest-tenured coach in the league, ego’s could be getting in the way.


Sunday, January 14th the actions begins early with Jacksonville visiting Pittsburgh.

The Jaguars already beat the Steelers at the same venue earlier this season but could it happen again?

According to the Jaguars brass, the team is up for the challenge.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger can’t usually find his grove this time of the year, and he will have a healthy Antonio Brown.

Fans in the “STEEL CITY” will be out in full force, what makes this one intriguing is the Jaguars have the talent to compete.

The Minnesota Vikings will host New Orleans in the final game of the divisional weekend.

Just like the first game, these two teams have already met this season with Vikings coming away victorious.

There is plenty of incentive for the Minnesota Vikings; they could be the first team in NFL History to play a Super Bowl at their home stadium.

New Orleans is a different team than they were earlier in the season.

Charliessports is ready to accommodate the generic fan or regular sports bettor with winning NFL Playoff Predictions.
