Nover’s View: Iowa-Nebraska Free Friday CFB Play

On November 26, 2021, in Free Picks, NCAAF, by Stephen

Iowa plus 1 at Nebraska  Is this some sort of shell game with the oddsmaker making Nebraska a favorite against Iowa?  Maybe I’m a sucker then but I’ll put my 11-4 Big Ten Conference record on the line by taking the underdog Hawkeyes.  The 16th-ranked Hawkeyes are 9-2 and alive for the Big Ten Conference […]

Nover’s View: South Alabama-Tennessee Free Play

On November 20, 2021, in Free Picks, NCAAF, by Stephen

South Alabama plus 28 at Tennessee So how much is a 5-5 team from the SEC worth at home against a 5-5 team from the Sun Belt? The oddsmaker says four touchdowns in this matchup of South Alabama versus Tennessee. Given the situational spot and the probable return of quarterback Jake Bentley for South Alabama, […]

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 […]

Nover’s View: Eagles-Raiders Free Sunday Play

On October 24, 2021, in Free Picks, NFL, by Stephen

Eagles plus 3 at Raiders  The Eagles and Jalen Hurts have played their best on the road. Philly is 2-1 away from home and Hurts has thrown five of his eight TD passes and completed 66.7 percent of his throws in away contests compared to 57.7 percent at home.  The Raiders won an emotional division […]

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 […]
