Nover’s View: Texans-Lions Free Thanksgiving Play

On November 24, 2020, in Free Picks, NFL, by Stephen



By Stephen Nover Texans minus 2 1/2 at Lions Deshaun Watson is reason enough to back the Texans here. Watson is one of the five best QB’s in the NFL right now. But the Lions are worth a fade all by themselves. The Lions have lost their last three Thanksgiving games. Their best player is […]

Nover’s View: In remembrance of Lem Banker

By Stephen Nover It wasn’t just another era. It was an entirely different world. That’s what sports betting was like in Las Vegas during the Precambrian times of the 1960’s, until the the late ’80’s when the town began going corporate. Legal sports books weren’t in hotels. They were in stand alone buildings with sawdust floors […]

By Stephen Nover Indiana at Michigan State Over 52  Allow me to throw out a Heisman Trophy darkhorse – Indiana QB Michael Penix.

By Stephen Nover Browns minus 3 minus $1.20 hosting Texans You can’t fully examine this matchup without first considering the weather. The temperature is going to be fine – mid 50’s. But heavy winds in the 28-30 mph range are forecast. That really hurts the Texans. The Browns are ground-oriented. The Texans have to throw […]

Nover’s View: Baylor-Iowa State Free Saturday Play

On November 6, 2020, in Free Picks, NCAAF, by Stephen



By Stephen Nover Iowa State minus 14 hosting Baylor COVID-19 issues. A downgrade in coaching from Matt Ruhle to Dave Aranda. Quarterback regression from Charlie Brewer. These factors have hit Baylor hard this season reducing its effectiveness. I don’t see the Bears being able to hang within two TD’s of Iowa State. Baylor has lost […]

Nover’s View: Raiders-Browns Free Sunday Play

On October 30, 2020, in Free Picks, NFL, by Stephen



By Stephen Nover Raiders at Browns Under 51  Yes, Under. I understand this is a game involving the Raiders, who have yet to go Under a total all season. I realize the Raiders’ defense has been terrible the past two years under D-coordinator Paul Guenther and have given up the second-most points per game in […]
