Nover’s View: Houston-Connecticut Free Saturday Play

On November 27, 2021, in Free Picks, NCAAF, by Stephen



Houston at Connecticut Under 55 Connecticut may not even score here. The Huskies’ offense is that bad and Houston’s defense is that good. The Huskies rank 127th both in yards and points, averaging a meager 15.5 points per game. Houston ranks sixth in fewest yards allowed and 10th in sacks. The key is how many […]

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 […]

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: Best and Worst of Monday Night Football

On October 26, 2021, in NFL, by Stephen



By Stephen Nover Of all the announcers available, you would think that highly prestigious NFL Monday Night Football could do better than Steve Levy, Brian Griese and Louis Riddick. Riddick isn’t bad. He understands the game and personnel. But Griese has no personality and doesn’t say anything of value or interest. Levy is plain overmatched. […]
