Nover’s View: Islanders-Rangers Free Thursday Play

On April 29, 2021, in Free Picks, NHL, by Stephen

Islanders plus $1.05 at Rangers Sure going 7-2 in their last nine games looks good. That’s what the Rangers have done. Consider this though: The Rangers played the three bottom teams in the East – Sabres, Flyers and Devils – in eight of those nine games. The one matchup that didn’t involve any of those […]

Nover’s View: Avalanche-Blues Free Monday Play

On April 26, 2021, in Free Picks, NHL, by Stephen

Avalanche minus 1 1/2 goals plus $1.55 (puck line) at Blues Colorado had a rare sloppy performance in its last game, a 5-3 road loss to the Blues two days ago. Colorado blew a quick 2-0 lead perhaps by being too overconfident.  The Avalanche are a much superior team to the Blues. I’d be surprised […]

Nover’s View: Rangers-White Sox Free Sunday Play

On April 25, 2021, in Free Picks, MLB, by Stephen

Rangers plus 1 1/2 runs minus $1.15 (run line) at White Sox  The White Sox won the first two games of this series by a combined three runs. I’m expecting another close score with a low total and cold weather with temperatures in the low 40s probably meaning runs will be tough to come by.  […]

Nover’s View: NHL Free Tuesday Play

On April 20, 2021, in Free Picks, NHL, by Stephen

Penguins at Devils Over 6 minus $1.05  These two teams just met on April 9 and April 11 in Pittsburgh. The Penguins won those games, 6-4 and 5-2.  So what’s changed? Nothing.  The youthful, mistake-prone Devils still are in full rebuild mode and the Penguins still have a well above average offense ranking sixth in […]

Nover’s View: Flyers-Penguins Free Thursday Play

On April 15, 2021, in Free Picks, NHL, by Stephen

Penguins minus $1.65 hosting Flyers I’m old enough to remember Bernie Parent and the Broad Street Bullies. So I can’t say the Flyers never had great goaltending.  They just haven’t had it for the past 45 years.  The Flyers are 2-6 in their last eight games, following a 5-3 loss to last-place Buffalo this past […]

Nover’s View: Reds-Giants Free Wednesday Play

On April 14, 2021, in Free Picks, MLB, by Stephen

Giants plus $1.06 hosting Reds (Early Start)  Johnny Cueto is past his prime. I get that even with Cueto coming off a brilliant performance. But I’m still not buying Cueto and the Giants opening as a home ‘dog to the Reds and bottom-of-the-rotation type Tyler Mahle.  I’m also not buying the Reds as the best […]
