Stephen Nover Free Friday NBA Play

On December 6, 2019, in Free Picks, NBA, by Stephen



By Stephen Nover Spurs minus 4 1/2 hosting Kings It has taken all season, but the buy sign is finally on the Spurs. Gregg Popovich has his youngest team ever. It’s taken the Spurs a quarter of the season to get going, but they have defeated both the Clippers and Rockets in two of their […]

Alabama-Auburn Free Play

On November 30, 2019, in Free Picks, NCAAF, by Stephen



By Stephen Nover Auburn plus 3 1/2 hosting Alabama Nick Saban was a greedy idiot when he kept an already banged-up Tua Tagovailoa still in the game with a 35-7 lead against Mississippi State two weeks ago. Now the hammer comes down on Alabama. I always thought talent-wise Auburn could match Alabama at nearly every […]

Illinois-Iowa Free CFB Saturday Play

On November 23, 2019, in Free Picks, NCAAF, by Stephen



By Stephen Nover Illinois plus 15 1/2 at Iowa  Maybe it’s because Iowa beat them, 63-0, last year. Maybe it’s because their offense ranks just 112th in yards gained.

Celtics-Warriors Free Friday Play

On November 15, 2019, in Free Picks, NBA, by Stephen



By Stephen Nover Celtics minus 7 1/2 at Warriors  Golden State is only Golden State in name now. I’ve never seen an NBA team that had a five-year run of making the championship series drop all the way to being in the argument for bottom team in the NBA. Golden State’s 2-10 record is the […]

Sad Demise of Cincinnati Bengals

On November 11, 2019, in NFL, by Stephen



By Stephen Nover Some NFL teams never recover from a loss. The Atlanta Falcons blew a 25-point third quarter lead to the Patriots in the 2016 Super Bowl. In the 2 1/2-plus years since then they are 20-23 and Dan Quinn isn’t likely to return as head coach next season. Even sadder than the Falcons, […]

Ravens-Bengals Free Sunday Play

On November 10, 2019, in Free Picks, NFL, by Stephen



By Stephen Nover Bengals plus 10 1/2 hosting Ravens When it comes to the NFL, it’s not who you play but when you play them. That’s what we have in this matchup – a winless Bengals team against a Ravens squad that just knocked off previously unbeaten New England and who has seized control of […]
