Backcourt mate Victor Oladipo looked like a deer caught in headlights in his first ever postseason contest. The former Orlando Magic player scored just six points.

Head Coach Billy Donovan must put an emphasis on getting the ball into the post in the second game of the series.

Starting Forward Andre Roberson did an adequate job of scoring and defending. Westbrook and Roberson were the only Thunder players to score in double figures in the first contest.

Taj Gibson had plenty of playoff experience but did not show up Sunday Night.

Houston looked like the most impressive of all playoff teams in their game one blowout victory. The key to a Houston victory is to stick to their game plan.

Written and authored by College Football Expert Analyst Al Presto. Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting news and notes. NCAA Football ATS Predictions are again winning at a remarkable rate and will continue to the BCS Title game in January 2017.

The game is on Thursday, October 20th, 2016. The Best Sports Handicapper believes the BYU Cougars are one of the best 4-3 teams in the NCAA Football landscape.

The Cougars have talent and experience on both sides of the football. The Boise State Broncos along with San Diego State are the class of the Mountain West Conference.

Boise State is back on the national scene, after two seasons of mediocrity.

Opening Betting Odds has the BYU Cougars as a Seven Point Road Underdog Against The Spread. The Betting Odds total is 54 and a Half Points for Thursday’s game.

The 2016-17 BYU Cougars have won their last two football games, both against power conference opponents.

BYU beat Mississippi State in front of the home crowd last week on National Television. The Cougars went on the road and beat Michigan State in convincing fashion on October 8th.

The Cougars have also faced West Virginia and Toledo this season both at home. The first year Head Coach Kalani Sitake has a top notch running back and an experienced signal caller on offense.

Starting quarterback Taysom Hill is back under center after sustaining knee injuries and missing two years.

Running Back Jamaal Williams broke the school’s rushing record last week and is second in the nation with 942 yards.

The Brigham Young defense has played with intensity on the road, holding Michigan State to just fourteen points.

BYU has played one of the toughest schedules in the land, but it lightens up in the month of November.

A road victory over a top fifteen team would solidify the Cougars with a possible New Year’s Day Bowl.

Many in the College Football landscape thought the Broncos run in the past decade was over. However, the 2016 Broncos are proving the experts wrong, the loss of former head coach Chris Petersen hurt recruiting a bit.

The Long Beach, California native is a future NFL player.

Sophomore quarterback Brett Rypien has a year of experience under his belt and can get the job done.

Boise State is solid on the defensive side of the football.

The key to a Boise State victory is to win the battle at the line of scrimmage.

Winning NCAA Football Betting Picks and Odds For Saturday. October 15, 2016:

Written and authored by College Football Expert Analyst Al Presto. Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting news and notes.

NCAA Football Predictions are again winning at a remarkable rate and will continue to the BCS Title game in January 2017.

The (5-0) And second-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes of the Big Ten Conference East Division will make the trip north to “AMERICA’S DAIRYLAND” for their week seven matchup of the 2016-17 NCAA Football season.

Game time is at 8:00 PM EST on the ABC Television Network. The teams will play at Camp Randall Stadium in beautiful Madison, Wisconsin.

The game is on Saturday, October 15th, 2016. The Best Sports Handicapper believes the Ohio State Buckeyes are a young football team.

However, they have some of the best talents in College Football. Wisconsin has tradition but is not on the same level as Saturday’s opponent.

The Badgers coaching staff will take advantage of the home crowd to try to pull the upset.

The Opening Betting Odds has the Ohio State Buckeyes as a Ten Point Road Favorite Against The Spread. The Betting Odds total is 44 and a Half Points for Saturday’s game.

 

The Ohio State Buckeyes along with their arch rivals Michigan Wolverines seem to be the class of the Big Ten this season.

Ohio State went on the road and beat Oklahoma in a hostile environment last month. The teams last met in the 2014 season in the Conference title game at Indianapolis, final score Ohio State 59-Wisconsin 0.

Ohio State went on to beat Alabama and Oregon in the first BCS playoff format.

However, this game is in front of the Badgers home crowd, and the faithful is already getting ready.

Buckeyes Head Coach Urban Meyer has his team leader under center; J.T. Barrett is one of the best game managers in all of College Football.

Graduation was supposed to hurt the Buckeyes this season, but players are taking their game to another level.

New defensive coordinator Greg Schiano and Luke Fickell has the defense making stops in critical situations.

The key to a Buckeyes victory is to play within the system, they way they did in Norman, Oklahoma.

The difference is Wisconsin is an excellent defensive football squad.

The 2016-17 Wisconsin Badgers began the season with a signature win against LSU at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

The only blemish on their record is a tough fought defensive game at Michigan. Wisconsin was idle last week and have players rested.

Defense is the Badgers calling card led by linebacker T.J Watt and cornerback Derrick Tindal. The coaching staff believes the defense will keep the game close.

The offense is another story for Head Coach Paul Chryst, running back Corey Clement is the best player on the unit. The New Jersey native has been banged up early in the season but is fully healthy and ready to go Saturday.

Starting Quarterback Alex Hornibrook is a Freshman and is prone to making mistakes.

Chryst and offensive coordinator Joe Rudolph must let the kid do what he does best.

Wisconsin must score points to win the highly anticipated “PRIME TIME” matchup.

Bovada Lv. List the Wisconsin Badgers at +1,600 to win the Big Ten Crown for the 2016-17 season.

The teams will play at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The game is on Friday, September 30th, 2016.

The Best Sports Handicapper believes the Seattle Seahawks put together four full quarters last week after struggling their first two games.

Seattle could be without their franchise quarterback for Sunday’s game. The New York Jets and the rest of the AFC East are still playing bridesmaid to the New England Patriots.

New York must get in gear, or the loyal fans will begin to let them know about their performance.

The Opening Betting Odds has the New York Jets as a Two and a Half Point home Underdog Against The Spread. The Betting Odds total is 40 Points for Sunday’s game.

The 2016-17 Seattle Seahawks beat the San Francisco 49ers at home last week in blowout fashion.

However, fans were holding their breath when signal caller Russell Wilson went out with a knee injury.

Rookie Trevone Boykin came in relief and tossed a touchdown pass but also threw and an interception. Wilson expects to be under center against the Jets.

The Seattle offensive line has been less than impressive through the first three weeks of the season.

Head Coach Pete Carroll understands it is going to take some time to get continuity on the unit. Assistant Tom Cable is the perfect fit to mold the youngsters up front.

The defense is still the strength of the Seahawks. The Seattle defensive line has run stoppers and pass rushers; they have linebackers who can play sideline to sideline.

The secondary is among the best in the NFL. The key to a Seattle victory if for the offensive line to open holes along the front.

Wilson can extend broken play’s with his legs.

Bovada Lv. List the Seattle Seahawks at +400 to win the 2016-17 NFC Championship.

Head Coach Todd Bowles watched quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick throw six interceptions in defeat. Running Back Matt Forte, produced sixty-five yards on the ground.

All Pro and team leader Brandon Marshall caught just three passes for twenty-seven yards.

New York could be without Eric Decker who is nursing a shoulder injury. The Jets defense is much like the Seahawks front seven; they can rush the passer and stop the run.

However, the team could be without cornerback Darrelle Revis who hurt his ankle in practice during the week.

Bowles will be looking to get support from the home crowd. The key to a Jets victory is to avoid turnovers; Geno Smith is still available.

Bovada Lv. List the New York Jets at +600 to win the 2016-17 AFC East Title.

The Jayhawks have some talent on offense, which is led by quarterback Montell Cozart. The Kansas City, Missouri native threw for just 87-yards last Saturday and had two interceptions.

Wideout Steven Sims is a weapon in the passing game. Running backs Ke’aun Kinner and Khalil Herbert can take it the distance at any time.

The Jayhawks defense will have it’s trouble against a highly productive Texas Tech offense. The KU defense has given up an average of 40-points per contest their last two football games.

Bovada Lv. List the Kansas Jayhawks at +25,000 to win the 2016-17 Big-Twelve Conference Championship.

 

The Texas Tech Red Raiders took care of Louisiana Tech in their last game nearly two weeks ago in a high scoring affair.

Starting quarterback Pat Mahomes can throw the football with precision from anywhere on the field. The Red Raiders offense is averaging over 60-points per contest through three games this season’s.

The Houston Cougars already have a signature victory in the 2016-17 season. However, there are still many obstacles in the way before their showdown with ACC powerhouse Louisville.
