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 […]

Seahawks-Falcons Free Sunday NFL Play

On October 27, 2019, in Free Picks, NFL, by Stephen



By Stephen Nover Seahawks at Falcons Under 50 1/2  This high total would be justified if Matt Ryan were playing and Russell Wilson was turned loose. But Ryan is out and I doubt the Seahawks change their conservative strategy of running the ball far more than normal in today’s NFL. A sprained ankle and the […]

Grizzlies-Heat Free Wednesday Play

On October 23, 2019, in Free Picks, NBA, by Stephen



By Stephen Nover Grizzlies plus 7 1/2 at Heat It’s easy to write off the Grizzlies since they have turned the page from the long-time, respected Mike Conley/Marc Gasol era. Memphis has a new coach, untested Taylor Jenkins, and is in rebuild mode. Miami, though, is nothing special. The Heat were just three games better […]

Stephen Nover Free CFB Saturday Play

On October 12, 2019, in Free Picks, NCAAF, by Stephen



By Stephen Nover Temple plus 5 hosting Memphis What tips the scale and puts me on Temple is the Owls’ home field, their balanced attack that can keep the Tigers’ high-powered attack off the field and their strong defense, which is the best Memphis has seen all season. Temple is 4-1 with its lone loss […]
