Don’t Sleep on the Raptors

On June 13, 2020, in NBA, by Stephen



By Stephen Nover The Toronto Raptors were overlooked last season when they won the NBA championship. The Raptors still aren’t getting respect as I’ve seen odds as high as 30-1 on them (currently at Sportsbook.com) to repeat their championship. No Kawhi Leonard is a big reason for those high odds. But guess what? Toronto has […]

Miami Dolphins Win Total

On May 19, 2020, in Free Picks, NFL, by Stephen



By Stephen Nover Miami Dolphins Under 6 Wins  The Dolphins entered last season regarded as the worst team in the league. They managed to pull off five victories. The Dolphins aren’t much more improved this season and  no longer have the advantage of opponents taking them lightly, or catching teams by surprise. The Dolphins are […]

Nover’s View: My all-time top 10 NBA list

On May 14, 2020, in NBA, by Stephen



By Stephen Nover Ever try to make a top 10 list of the greatest NBA players in history? Man, it’s difficult and I’ve been closely watching the sport for 57 years! Karl Malone is maybe the top pure power forward ever. But he doesn’t make my top 10. Neither do Shaquille O’Neal, Kobe Bryant, Jerry […]

By Stephen Nover Timberwolves plus 12 1/2 at Rockets  It has been eight years since the Timberwolves beat the Rockets in Houston. I don’t expect Minnesota to end that 13-game road losing streak to the Rockets. I do expect, though, the Timberwolves to hang within single digits. Houston isn’t playing nearly well enough to be […]

Oakland-Green Bay Free Thursday Play

On March 5, 2020, in Free Picks, NCAAB, by Stephen



By Stephen Nover Oakland plus 4 at Green Bay Green Bay is playing well. But so is Oakland. I consider this Horizon League tournament game a toss-up so I’m grabbing the points with Oakland. The Golden Grizzlies are peaking at the right time going 5-1 SU, 4-2 ATS in their last six games. Oakland defeated […]

Illinois-Northwestern Free Thursday Play

On February 27, 2020, in Free Picks, NCAAB, by Stephen



By Stephen Nover Illinois minus 6 at Northwestern  Here’s my ticket. Now boarding the Northwestern fade train. The Wildcats have lost 11 in a row going 4-7 ATS during this span with eight of those defeats being by at least nine points. Illinois is 18-9, 10-6 in the Big Ten. The Illini remain in the […]
