Stephen Nover’s NBA Free Thursday Play

On December 19, 2019, in Free Picks, NBA, by Stephen



By Stephen Nover Jazz minus 6 at Hawks There will be a time to take the proper amount of points with the Hawks. Big man John Collins is due to come off the suspended list after two more games. But for now the Hawks are a fade. Atlanta is 6-22. Only Golden State has a […]

Stephen Nover Free Friday NBA Play

On December 6, 2019, in Free Picks, NBA, by Stephen



By Stephen Nover Spurs minus 4 1/2 hosting Kings It has taken all season, but the buy sign is finally on the Spurs. Gregg Popovich has his youngest team ever. It’s taken the Spurs a quarter of the season to get going, but they have defeated both the Clippers and Rockets in two of their […]

Alabama-Auburn Free Play

On November 30, 2019, in Free Picks, NCAAF, by Stephen



By Stephen Nover Auburn plus 3 1/2 hosting Alabama Nick Saban was a greedy idiot when he kept an already banged-up Tua Tagovailoa still in the game with a 35-7 lead against Mississippi State two weeks ago. Now the hammer comes down on Alabama. I always thought talent-wise Auburn could match Alabama at nearly every […]

Illinois-Iowa Free CFB Saturday Play

On November 23, 2019, in Free Picks, NCAAF, by Stephen



By Stephen Nover Illinois plus 15 1/2 at Iowa  Maybe it’s because Iowa beat them, 63-0, last year. Maybe it’s because their offense ranks just 112th in yards gained. Maybe it’s because Lovie Smith is such a retread, unappealing coach. Whatever the reasons, the Illini get disrespected in the marketplace. That’s the case again this […]

Celtics-Warriors Free Friday Play

On November 15, 2019, in Free Picks, NBA, by Stephen



By Stephen Nover Celtics minus 7 1/2 at Warriors  Golden State is only Golden State in name now. I’ve never seen an NBA team that had a five-year run of making the championship series drop all the way to being in the argument for bottom team in the NBA. Golden State’s 2-10 record is the […]

Sad Demise of Cincinnati Bengals

On November 11, 2019, in NFL, by Stephen



By Stephen Nover Some NFL teams never recover from a loss. The Atlanta Falcons blew a 25-point third quarter lead to the Patriots in the 2016 Super Bowl. In the 2 1/2-plus years since then they are 20-23 and Dan Quinn isn’t likely to return as head coach next season. Even sadder than the Falcons, […]
