Ditch the Pro Bowl – Please

On January 31, 2016, in NFL, by Stephen

The Joke Bowl, otherwise known as the Pro Bowl, goes today. The total is 71. That’s all you need to really know about the quality of this exhibition. But in case you want more, a record 45 players who were picked to participate declined to attend this year. I’m always relieved when players from my […]

On January 30, 2016, in Free Picks, NCAAB, by Stephen

Virginia plus 6 1/2 at Louisville When two very good teams meet, especially two that rank among the top 11 defensively, taking points isn’t a bad way to go. That’s especially the case here getting this many points with 11th-ranked Virginia against 16th-rated Louisville. It’s the first time the Cavaliers are an underdog in 44 […]

Rockets plus 4 1/2 at Pelicans The Pelicans still hold out hope of getting the No. 8 seed in the West. So far they are taking advantage of a prolonged homestand to play their finest ball going 5-1 in their last six games, including winning three in a row. So why step in against them […]

The Bucks are fresh, too, having been idle the past two days. The Bucks have one of the most underrated players in […]

On January 17, 2016, in Uncategorized, by Stephen

Not too many quarterbacks are capable of winning a Super Bowl without a dominant defense. Aaron Rodgers is. Yet, for the sixth time in seven years, the Packers aren’t going to the Super Bowl. Only once during this span have the Packers even won two playoff games in a season – the year they did […]

Stephen Nover Free Saturday NBA Play

Bucks at Hornets Under 200 1/2 Back on Nov. 29 the Bucks and Hornets hooked up in Charlotte. There were a combined 169 points scored with the Hornets winning, 87-82. That game went under the total by 32 1/2 points. While I don’t expect the total to fall anywhere close to that figure – it […]
