The (10-7) SU, (7-10) ATS Butler Bulldogs have dropped four of five, their most recent a 70-69 loss to Xavier as 1 point road UNDERDOGS ATS.

Butler shot well from the field from the field and beyond the arc in both losses. It’ll be the Bulldogs third consecutive road game; they also lose at Seton Hall by a point. Butler is 1-3 SU on the road this season.

  • UNDER bettors has made profits in six of the last seven between the teams.
  • The OVER is 3-0 Butler last three vs. The Big East Conference.
  • The Bulldogs are 2-6 their last eight against Big East opponents.
  • Butler is 1-4 ATS their last five on the road.

The (10-5) SU, (8-6-1) ATS DePaul Blue Demons have won two consecutive including a signature 79-71 upset over nationally ranked St.Johns as 6′ point road UNDERDOGS AGAINST THE SPREAD.

DePaul grabbed nine more rebounds than St.Johns while shooting they shot (45%) from the field and (33%) from beyond the three-point line. The Blue Demos are 6-5 ATS at home their last eleven.

  • DePaul is 5-1 AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD their last six against Big East opposition.
  • The UNDER is 6-1-1 DePaul last eight vs. Big East opponents.
  • The Blue Demons are 1-2 ATS their last three at home.
  • OVER bettors have made profits in 4 of DePaul last seven at home.

Wednesday’s game is at 8:30 PM EST at Wintrust Arena in Chicago, Illinois. The FS-1 Television Network will be broadcasting. The Betting Line has DePaul as 2′ point home UNDERDOGS ATS. The TOTAL is 141′ points for Wednesday’s contest.

 

Butler Bulldogs basketball coach LaVall Jordan has watched his team lose consecutive games by a total of two points. However, a trip to Chicago where they’ve won 18 straight could be just what they need moving forward.

The Bulldogs haven’t lost in the Windy City since 2007, but since their affiliation with the Big East Conference, they haven’t won on the road since January 31, 2018.

They score an average of (73.2) ppg on (45.3%) shooting from the field while allowing opponents (66.9) ppg on (44.3%) shooting. Leading scorer Kamar Baldwin (17.0) points per contest with Paul Jorgensen contributing with thirteen. The Bulldogs main problem is rebounding, they rank 320th in the nation, and that’s with two 6″11 players on the roster which tells me they must get more robust in the post. On the other hand, Depaul is the 50th ranked team in the nation at pulling down basketballs.

Butler has a clear advantage with their ability to shoot beyond the three-point line (36.4%) while DePaul hits them at a (31.7%) rate.

This Sports Handicapper believes for Butler to come away with a victory in tonight’s contest is to make a few three-point shots forcing them away from the basket.

Bovada.Lv, list the Butler Bulldogs at 40/1 to win the 2019 Big East Conference Tournament.

 

Dave Leitao has been on the bench at DePaul since the 2015 season and after Loyola Chicago made it to the NCAA March Madness Final Four a season ago he’s feeling pressure to win.

Senior guard Max Strus (18.2) points per contest lead the scoring for a Blue Demon team that puts up (76.9) ppg while they allow opponents (70.1) points. The (39.2) rebounds per contest are 48th in College Basketball, and it’s where the Blue Demons must attack a weak interior Butler team. Straus (7.6) rpg, Forward Paul Reed (7.3) along with senior forward Femi Olujobi (4.7) are all elite at hitting the glass.

The win at St.Johns was significant for the DePaul program, but the Red Storm were without their best player Shamorie Ponds. All-Big East teams have overall winning records; the Blue Demons are 2-2 in Conference play which places them in a tie with Georgetown and St.John’s. Leitao must also establish relationships with area high school coaches in talent-rich Chicago the way Ray Meyer did in the late 1970s to mid-’80s when Mark Aguirre, Terry Cummings, and Teddy Grubbs elected to stay home to play at the College level.

DePaul has one player who comes from the highly touted public school, and that’s Devin Gage.

The winning NCAA Basketball Handicappers at Charliessports.com are 13-2 when going on or against Depaul the past two years in Betting Predictions.

Bovada.Lv, list the Depaul Blue Demons at +60/1 to win the 2019 Big East Conference Crown.

#4 Michigan Wolverines @ Illinois Fighting Illini College Basketball Betting Preview for Thursday, January 10, 2019.

Written by NCAA Basketball Expert Point Spread Analyst Greg Nelson.

Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball Betting. NCAA Basketball 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 (15-0) SU, (7-8) ATS Michigan Wolverines stayed unbeaten with a 74-63 win over Indiana as 9 point home FAVORITES ATS on Sunday December 6, 2019.

Jordan Poole and Charles Matthews scored 18 points apiece in the victory while Zavier Simpson dished out three assists. Michigan has won 29 of their last 30 games dating back to the 2018 season.

  • Michigan is 12-3-1 AGAINST THE SPREAD the last sixteen between the teams.
  • The Wolverines are 20-7-1 ATS their last 28 on the road.
  • The OVER is 4-2 the last six times the teams have played.
  • Michigan is 2-5 ATS their last seven overall.

The (4-11) SU, (6-9) ATS Illinois Fighting Illini are on a four-game losing streak after last Sunday’s 68-66 loss to Northwestern as 8 point road UNDERDOGS ATS.

Northwestern hit a three-point shot with ten seconds remaining in Evanston, Illinois as the struggles in both Basketball and Football continue at the University of Illinois.

  • Illinois is 4-8 ATS their last 12 overall.
  • The Fighting Illini are 1-8 AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD their last seven at home.
  • UNDER bettors have cashed in 5 of Illinois last eight at home.
  • The UNDER is 4-1 Illinois last five at home.

Thursday’s game is at 8:00 PM EST at State Farm Center in Champaign/Urbana, Illinois. The FS-1 Television Network will be broadcasting.

The Betting Line has Michigan as 9′ point road FAVORITES ATS ATS. The TOTAL is 136′ points for Thursday’s contest.

University of Michigan head coach John Beilein is in his twelfth season on the bench in Ann Arbor with expectations mounting after making it to the 2018 NCAA Finals, losing to Villanova. Departures to Moritz Wagner, Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman, and Duncan Robinson should have meant the program would be in a rebuilding year.

However, it’s not been the case as their suffocating defense has been the catalyst to an undefeated season.

Forward Isaiah Livers (7.9) ppg is questionable tonight with a back injury which could play a factor tonight as the Kalamazoo native can do a bit of everything for the team. In his absence, Austin Davis (1.6) ppg along with Brandon Johns (1.4) are getting valuable playing time which will pay dividends as the season progresses.

The Wolverines have been 16-0 three times in the history of the basketball program while they seek their 14th consecutive Big Ten Conference victory.

Leading scorer Ignas Brazdeikis (16.0) points per contest are efficient inside and out but will see plenty of pressure from an Illinois team that won’t mind playing a small lineup.

The best NCAA Basketball Handicapper believes Michigan must stick to their game plan as the Illini will try to get them out of rhythm.

 

 

 

Bovada.Lv, list the Michigan Wolverines at 15/1 to win the 2019 Big Ten Conference title.

 

 

 

With access to alumni and high school coaches in talent-rich Chicago the University of Illinois has to good of a recruiting base to be struggling.

Brad Underwood understand the landscape which is why he’ll attempt to restore a rich tradition of College Basketball at the largest institute of higher learning in the Land of Lincoln.

News of the Kofi Cockburn commitment is good news among the loyal Illini basketball follower; the seven-foot five-star is the second big man to give a verbal to Illinois, Antwan January is the other. Both players like the family atmosphere instilled by Underwood; they also are confident they’ll instrumental in getting back to the winning ways at the University of Illinois.

After Loyola of Chicago made it to 2018 Final Four as a Mid Major program, all coaches in the area are feeling pressure to duplicate the feat.

For now, the Illini hope to break a 13 game losing streak against ranked opponents tonight on their home floor. For that to happen, sophomore guard Trent Frazier (14.9) ppg, and Chicago freshman Ayo Dosunmu (12.9) to play near flawless basketball against a superior defensive opponent. Underwood will do everything to force turnovers and play with an uptempo style.

Bovada.Lv, list the Illinois Fighting Illini at +8,000 to win the 2019 Big 10 Basketball Crown.

Los Angeles Chargers @ New England Patriots. NFL Playoff (AFC Divisional Round) Betting Preview for Sunday, January 13, 2019.

Written by National Football League Point Spread Analyst Greg Nelson.

Charliessports.com produces it for Football News. NFL Playoff Expert Betting Picks are comprised of our 500* Signature Selections. So make the smart decision and win alongside us, Enjoy the games!

The (13-4) SU, (10-7) ATS San Diego Chargers advanced with a 23-17 wildcard round victory over Baltimore as 2′ point ROAD UNDERDOGS ATS. Los Angeles continued their winning ways last Sunday, and they’ll be flying about three states North of Maryland this times, but it’s still a 10:00 AM PST start. The Chargers were benefices of four Michael Badgley field goals to take a 12-0 lead into the half before letting the Ravens back into the contest late.

  • Los Angeles is 9-1 ATS their previous ten on the road.
  • The Chargers are 0-4 AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD the last four between the teams.
  • The UNDER has cashed in Los Angeles last four playoff games.
  • UNDER bettors have made profits 5 of the last six times the teams have played.

The (11-5) SU, (9-7) ATS New England Patriots last played on December 30, 2018, taking down the New York Jets as 14′ point home FAVORITES ATS. As a result, the Patriots earned a first-round bye. Everyone knows how prolific New England is around this time of year and the BETTING public believes the Chargers a great play ATS. New England hasn’t lost a home game since October 2017.

  • New England is 3-1 ATS their last four at home.
  • The favorite is 4-1 AGAINST THE SPREAD the last five times the teams have played.
  • The UNDER is 4-0 New England last four at home.
  • OVER bettors have made profits in 8 of the Patriots last nine divisional playoff games.

Kickoff will be Sunday, January 13, 2019. Game time is at 1:05 PM EST at the Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts. The CBS Television Network will be broadcasting. The Betting Line has New England at 4 point home FAVORITES AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD. The TOTAL is 47 points for Sunday’s contest.

Los Angeles Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn watched his team give up two fourth-quarter touchdowns to a rookie quarterback last Sunday in Baltimore. It was the second time in three week’s they would face Raven’s signal caller Lamar Jackson.

Film study was instrumental in holding the rookie in check most of the game after a 22-10 loss to the same team on December 22nd. However, they know it’ll be a different outcome by allowing Brady equal opportunity. The Goat has gotten the best of the Chargers the last two meeting in the postseason including a 21-12 AFC Championship game loss in 2008. Phillip Rivers is undoubtedly a Hall of Famer and like he said after Sunday win Why not us which is an attitude of confidence.

Running Back Melvin Gordon has been in a walking cast due to a minor knee injury suffered in Baltimore. On the other side of the Football, the Chargers are much better than their 22nd NFL ranking. Pass Rushers Melvin Ingram and Joey Bosa can take over a game anytime their own the field. Defensive coordinator Gus Bradley understands his unit must improve covering out of the backfield. They allowed opponents (973) yards.

Safety Derwin James will be asked to cover a lot of ground both against the run and pass; the former Florida State product is already a star and will be the X-Factor Sunday.

Bovada.Lv, list the Los Angeles Chargers at +1,800 to win the 2019 NFL Title.

 

Bill Belichick remembers the taste of defeat last year in Minneapolis as the Philadelphia Eagles took the Lombardi Trophy home. The quest is on to reclaim what fans in the Northeast believe is theirs. Snow is in the forecast Sunday which the Patriots welcome but also understand how much talent Los Angeles has on their roster.

New England is (12-2) SU in the postseason with weather condition below 32 degrees. The high powered Patriots offense will get tested by a defense that is better on the field than on paper, and the coaching staff knows this as a fact. They’ll have to dink and dunk to running back Sony Michel, James White, and Rex Burkhead. New England is a team that can never be counted out, especially in January and February.

Belichick is friends with University of Alabama head coach Nick Saban who’s Crimson Tide got destroyed in the 2019 BCS title game. This Sports Handicapper believes the long-standing dynasty in New England is on shaky ground.

The organization will pay down the road for trading backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to San Francisco; Sunday’s game will be the most anticipated as the Los Angeles Chargers have an excellent shot at dethroning the reigning AFC Champions.

Bovada.Lv, list the New England Patriots at +650 to win the 2019 Superbowl.

#10 Florida Gators vs. #7 Michigan Wolverines NCAA Football (Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl) Betting preview for Saturday, December 29, 2018.

Written by NCAAF Bowl Expert Analyst Al Presto.

The (9-3) SU, (8-4) ATS Florida Gators took down in-state rivals Florida State 41-14 as 8′ point road FAVORITES ATS in their regular season finale. It was the first win over the Seminoles since 2012 which brings optimism to Gator fans.

Florida will also be going for their first ten win season in three years, going forward it’s a considerable feat in the SEC.

  • Florida is 4-0 ATS their last four out of conference.
  • The OVER is 4-0-1 ATS the Gators last five following an SU victory.
  • OVER bettors have made a profit last four meetings between the teams
  • The OVER is 5-1-1 Florida last seven overall.

The (10-2) SU, (6-6) ATS Michigan Wolverines were taken to the woodshed by rivals Ohio State 62-39 as 3′ point road FAVORITES ATS in the annual contest.

Michigan has taken down Florida both SU/ATS the last two times they’ve played in the Jim Harbaugh era. Besides Michigan beat Florida in 2008 and 2003 as the Wolverines look to recover from the disaster in Columbus, Ohio.

  • Michigan is 1-2 ATS their last three when favored by less than 10 points.
  • The OVER is 7-0 Michigan last seven vs. SEC opponents.
  • The OVER is 5-1 the Wolverines last six after an SU loss.
  • OVER bettors have cashed in the Wolverines last four at a neutral venue.

Kickoff will be Saturday, December 29, 2018. Game time is 12:00 PM EST at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. The ESPN Television Network will be broadcasting.

The current Betting Line has Florida as 5′ point UNDERDOGS ATS at a neutral site. The TOTAL is 50 Points for Saturday’s contest.

Florida Gators head coach Dan Mullen took over a team that won 4 games in 2017 which is inexcusable for a high profile program like the one in Gainesville, Florida.

Quarterback Feleipe Franks (2,284 passing yards, 23 touchdowns with six interceptions) leads the SEC 7th ranked offense that produced (5,116) total yards. As much progress and the sophomore has made he’ll depend on his running backs Jordan Scarlett (717) rushing yards and Lamical Perine (750) to grind out yards on the ground. Both average a healthy (5.9) yards per attempt, besides, Michigan will be without All Americans Devin Bush who’s a Florida native and Rashan Gary; both are preparing for the 2019 NFL draft.

The Gators defense was able to get to opposing quarterbacks 32 times this season which was 5th in the Southeastern Conference. A big reason was their top ten national secondary that allowed (173.1) yards per game through the air.

There’s no doubt Mullen will have his team prepared for action against a program they’ve struggled against. This could turn into an all-out slugfest with the winner being determined at the line of scrimmage.

Bovada.Lv, list the Florida Gators at 7′ total wins for 2018-19, UNDER bettors miss staying low on Florida.

The Michigan Wolverines lost to Notre Dame to open the season and finished with a thrashing at the hands of the team that’s dominated, Jim Harbaugh. Everything was on the line for Michigan which who could have overtaken Oklahoma for the final spot in the BCS Playoffs. What team will show up in Atlanta Saturday?

You can also bet Dan Mullen has been in touch with teacher Urban Meyer to expose weaknesses of the Wolverines on either side of the football. There’s also Jim McElwain who was fired as Florida head coach before joining Harbaugh staff as wide receivers coach at Michigan this season but recently took the Central Michigan job. M

Michigan quarterback Shea Patterson (2,364 yards, 21 touchdowns, five interceptions) this season has exceptional receivers in Nico Collins and Donovan Peoples-Jones.

The Wolverines have outscored Florida 44-0 in the second half of their most recent contests and Gators fans are well aware of both instances.

A key to a Michigan victory is to catch the Gators off guard. However, did the loss to Ohio State take the fight out of the Wolverines moving forward.

Bovada.Lv, list the 2018 Michigan Wolverines at Over/Under 8′ wins, OVER bettors cash in.

Hawaii Rainbow Warriors vs. Louisiana Tech Bulldogs (SoFi Hawai’i Bowl) Betting preview for Saturday, December 22, 2018

Written by College Football Bowl ATS Analyst Charlie Red McDougall.

The (8-5) SU, (7-5-1) ATS Hawaii Rainbow Warriors ended the 2018 regular season with a victory on the mainland over Frisco bowl participant San Diego State 31-30 as 18 point road UNDERDOGS ATS.

Hawaii produced (516) total yards of offense against a stingy Aztec defense, and you can bet the Louisiana Tech coaching staff has studied film. Although the Rainbow Warriors will be playing in their home stadium, they’re listed as visitors.

  • OVER bettors have made profits in 7 of Hawaii last eight vs.Conference USA opponents.
  • The Rainbow Warriors are 0-3-1 ATS their last four non-conference games.
  • Hawaii is 9-23 their last 32 vs. Teams with an SU winning record.
  • The OVER is 3-1 Hawaii last four overall.

The (7-5) SU, (6-6) ATS Louisiana Tech Bulldogs dropped three of four to end the 2018 Conference-USA schedule including a season finale 30-15 loss to Western Kentucky as 10′ point home FAVORITES ATS.

Louisiana Tech finished third behind UAB and North Texas in the West division. Bulldogs quarterback Junior quarterback J’Mar Smith has just five touchdown passes in 2018.

  • UNDER bettors have cashed in Louisiana Tech last five overall.
  • The Bulldogs are 0-4 AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD their last four on field turf.
  • The UNDER is 4-0 Louisiana Tech last four following an SU defeat.
  • Louisiana Tech is 5-1 ATS their last six Bowl games.

Kickoff will be Saturday, December 22, 2018, at 8:00 PM EST at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii. The ESPN Television Network will be broadcasting.

The current Betting Line has Louisiana Tech as 1 point UNDERDOGS ATS at a neutral site. The TOTAL is 61′ Points for Saturday’s contest.

 

Hawaii head coach Nick Rolovich is in his third season on the sidelines. After a subpar 3-9 2017 campaign, Hawaii answered the bell by finishing third in the Mountain West Conference, West division.

It didn’t look good from October 13 to November 3rd as they experienced a four-game skid before ending the season the two consecutive victories. Hawaii has an advantage in making their second Hawaii Bowl appearance in three years.

Quarterback Cole McDonald (3,790) yards through the air leads a Hawaii passing attack that averages (321.2) yards per contest through the air which ranks 6th in the FBS.

However, the offensive line has trouble opening holes in the running game; Hawaii ranks 118th in the FBS on the ground which plays in the hands of Louisiana Tech defensive end Jaylon Ferguson who led the nation with 15 quarterback sacks on the way to being named C USA defensive player of the year.

On the other side of the Football Hawaii allows opponents (439.0) total yards per game and (35.4) points per game.

Hawaii must find ways to slow down the ferocious Louisiana Tech defense; if they can’t run the football, it could be a long night in the friendly confines of their home stadium.

Bovada.Lv, list the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors at 3′ total wins for 2018-19, we already went to Las Vegas and chased the ticket.

 

Head Coach Skip Holtz is in his sixth season in Ruston, Louisiana after his tenure at the University of South Florida.

The Bulldogs are making their fifth consecutive postseason appearance and look to make it 5 for 5 in bowl games.

Holtz wants his team to enjoy their experience on the island, and at the same time, they’re treating it as a business trip. With a lot of highly regarded NFL prospects opting out of bowl game’s Ferguson wants to improve his stock and participate which people at the next level highly respect.

Although Louisiana Tech averages (24.2) ppg they’ll face a Hawaii defense that doesn’t scare anyone. The (4,478) total yards produced by the Bulldogs offense is 101st in the FBS and Holtz will line up and play physical featuring at rushing attack that averages (126.4) yards per game.

As bad as Hawaii is stopping the run Holtz will play hard-nosed Football and the Rainbow Warriors rank next to last in the FBS forcing turnovers.

Louisiana Tech scored a season-best 59 points against HBS opponent Southern University this season, but Holtz may want to let Smith throw the football to get ready for the 2019 season.

However, I’m sure he wants to keep the bowl win streak intact.

Bovada.Lv, list the 2018 Louisiana Tech Bulldogs at Over/Under 6′ wins. The OVER gets it.

Phoenix Suns @ Portland Trailblazers (Western Conference) NBA Betting preview for Thursday, December 6, 2018.

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 (4-20) SU, (8-16) Phoenix Suns will try to break a six-game losing streak both SU/ATS. Phoenix has been as bad as expected through the first quarter of the 2018-19 season. The latest a December 4th, a 122-105 defeat to Sacramento as 5′ point home UNDERDOGS ATS.

Sacramento got off to a 36-9 first-quarter lead, never looking back in victory.

  • The Suns are 4-1 ATS their last five in Portland.
  • Phoenix is 0-5 AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD their last five after an ATS loss.
  • UNDER bettors have cashed in 4 of Phoenix last five overall.
  • Phoenix is 2-4 ATS their last six on the road.

The (13-11) SU, (11-13) ATS Portland Trailblazers have dropped six of seven and have not had a POINT SPREAD cover since November 18th. Portland is 8-4 SU playing in front of the home crowd this season. They’re four games behind first-place Denver in the Northwest division.

The Trailblazers got outscored 34-20 in the opening quarter in their latest loss to Dallas as 2 point road FAVORITES ATS.

  • The Trailblazers are 0-6 ATS their last six on one day of rest.
  • Over bettors have made profits the last four meetings between the teams in Portland.
  • Portland is 0-3 AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD their previous three at home.
  • The OVER is 7-3 Portland last ten overall.

Thursday’s game is at 10:05 PM EST at Moda Center in Portland, Oregon. The Local Television Network will be broadcasting.

The Betting Line has Phoenix as 13 point road UNDERDOGS ATS. The TOTAL is 214′ points for Thursday’s contest.

Trade rumors surrounding 33-year-old forward Trevor Ariza are swirling around the Phoenix Suns organization. The former Rockets star has plenty of value with an ability to clamp down on defense and shoot from the perimeter.

Phoenix wants a quality point guard to distribute, freeing up Devin Booker (out tonight) to freelance on the wing.

The Suns (103.0) points per game are 28th in the league while the (45.6%) shooting from the field ranks 17th in basketball. Booker (23.5) ppg along with TJ Warren whos out with a hamstring injury, (17.7) are the primary offensive weapon. The organization wants 2017 number-four overall draft pick, Josh Jackson, to play a more prominent role, and he’ll get his chance tonight with the two top scorers out.

Rookie Deandre Ayton is the real deal and is showing why he was the top overall pick this season grabbing a team-best (10.2) rebounds per game. The Suns 25th ranked defense allows opponents (114.0) points per game; the last two opponents have scored at least 120 points. Phoenix allows the opposition a high shooting percentage which must be corrected.

Forward Ryan Anderson has been a disappointment since coming over from New Orleans but provides leadership to the youthful roster. Phoenix knows that Portland is desperate for a victory.

However, it’s going to be tight with Booker and Warren out tonight.

Bovada.Lv list the Phoenix Suns win total at 29′ games for 2018-19.

The Portland Trailblazers front office didn’t make any drastic moves after they got swept in the opening round of last season’s playoffs. Portland began the season playing efficiently at both ends of the court, but now fans around the city are questioning head coach Terry Stotts.

As expected All-Star point guard Damian Lillard is playing at an elite level. However, role players such as Zach Collins, Moe Harkless, and Al-Farouq Aminu are struggling which reminds the faithful of the Pelicans playoff series.

Lillard average a team-high (27.3) ppg on a unit that produces (112.5) points per contest. If the season ended today, Portland would be the number-seven seed in the Western Conference. Portland allows the opposition (111.7) points per game, 20th in the NBA on a dismal (46.0%) shooting from the field which is too high.

Portland excels at forcing turnover; the (12.2) is the 2nd league-wide. CJ McCollum is questionable for tonight’s game after suffering an ankle injury.

A key to a Portland win tonight to come out and play with enthusiasm; someone other than Lillard has to produce on offense.

Bovada.Lv list the Portland Trailblazers win total at 42 games for 2018-19.

Written by National Football League Point Spread Analyst Al Presto.

The (4-8) SU, (3-9) ATS Atlanta Falcons look to break a four-game losing streak both SU/ATS in the Frozen Tundra in a matchup between two teams who are spiraling downwards. The Atlanta defense allowed the Baltimore rushing attack 207-yards rushing in a 26-16 loss as 2′ point home FAVORITES ATS.

  • Atlanta is 4-1 AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD their last five vs. Green Bay.
  • Atlanta is 0-5 ATS their last five vs. Teams with a losing record.
  • The UNDER is 4-0 Atlanta last four overall

After the (4-7-1) SU/ATS Green Bay Packers lost their third game in a row Sunday to Arizona as 13′ point home FAVORITES ATS head coach Mike McCarthy was fired. Green Bay has dropped five of six and is 2′ games behind first-place Chicago.

The Falcons are in jeopardy of missing out on the 2018-19 postseason with a loss to Green Bay. Three of the Falcons last four games are on the road which makes it more difficult to compete for a wildcard berth.

The Falcons offense averages (377.6) total yards per contest is led by quarterback Matt Ryan (3,814) passing yards. What’s more impressive is they’ve outgained three of their last five opponents, including the Saints and Cowboys. However, the ground game ranks last in the NFL averaging (79.0) yards per game. Tevin Campbell (514) rushing yards is taking a lot of the heat with Devonta Freeman in the injured reserve list.

Defensive coordinator, Marquand Manuel unit, allows (130.7) per game on the ground but after Baltimore scorched them last week, there must be adjustments. They give up (394.2) total yards per contest which ranks 26th league-wide while allowing (27.8) ppg. Defensive tackle Grady Jarrett along with linebacker Deion Jones is questionable; the Falcons struggle began when safety Keanu Neal was lost for the season.

Atlanta must come out with passion and establish a presence running the football to open up passing lanes.
