Nets at Clippers Free Monday Play

On February 29, 2016, in Free Picks, NBA, by Stephen

Nets at Clippers Over 208 1/2 The Clippers shouldn’t have any problem getting their share of points against the lowly Nets. Chris Paul is playing at a high level again averaging 26.7 points and 11.3 assists during LA’s past six games. If you don’t count an off-night against Denver two games ago, the Clippers are […]

Samford plus 12 1/2 at Tennessee Chattanooga Chattanooga leads the Southern Conference. Samford is just 4-13 in conference. But the Bulldogs’ record is misleading. Of their last 12 losses, 11 have been by single-digits. Just two weeks ago, the Bulldogs took second-place East Tennessee State to overtime on the road. The Bulldogs played the Mocs […]

They had some excellent teams back then, but the deck seemed stack against the small-market team going against the Lakers and superbly-coached Spurs. Now the Suns are making the old Washington Generals look like the Golden […]

On February 22, 2016, in Free Picks, NHL, by Stephen

Canadiens plus $1.05 hosting Predators You have to have a long memory to now recall Montreal opening 9-0. Shortly after that the Canadiens lost Carey Price. It has been a steep decline ever since. In fact, the Canadiens’ 10-23-1 record since the start of December is the worst in the NHL. So why get involved […]

Stephen Nover Free Friday Play

Heat plus 9 1/2 at Hawks Let’s get something straight here. Even though the Heat won’t have Chris Bosh and Hassan Whiteside, who is suspended for this one game, they aren’t the 76ers or Suns. Yet that’s the way the oddsmaker has priced this game. The Heat rank No. 2 in the NBA in defense […]
