Nover’s View: Bowling Green-Buffalo Free Saturday Play

On October 30, 2021, in Free Picks, NCAAF, by Stephen

Buffalo minus 13 1/2 hosting Bowling Green  Buffalo is 4-4 so perhaps you think this point spread might be too rich. It isn’t. Bowling Green is terrible. Buffalo needs this game to move within one-half game of Kent State and Miami of Ohio in the East Division of the MId-American Conference as both Kent State and […]

Nover’s View: Hornets-Magic Free Play

On October 27, 2021, in Free Picks, NBA, by Stephen

Hornets minus 5 1/2 at Magic  This point spread doesn’t reflect the disparity between these two teams, nor fully takes into account the situation of this matchup. Charlotte is out of the gate fast, looking like a much improved team with underrated depth. Only an overtime loss to the Celtics two days ago has kept […]

On October 26, 2021, in NFL, by Stephen

Nover’s View: Celtics-Knicks Free Wednesday Play

On October 20, 2021, in Free Picks, NBA, by Stephen

Celtics at Knicks Under 216 1/2 This should be an intense opening game between two long-time division rivals. Tom Thibodeau transformed the Knicks into being the top defensive team in the NBA last season. New York gave up a league-low 104.7 points a game. There’s a good chance center Mitchell Robinson will be healthy enough […]

Nover’s View: Maple Leafs-Senators Free Thursday Play

On October 14, 2021, in Free Picks, NHL, by Stephen

Senators plus $1.49 hosting Maple Leafs The Senators played the Maple Leafs tough last season going 4-4-1 against them and are in a great spot to spring an upset here. Toronto edged Montreal, 2-1, in front of a packed home crowd Wednesday. It was an intense, revenge game for the Maple Leafs, who were eliminated […]
