It's Championship Sunday in the NFL! Two good sized home favorites to be sure. I don't have a strong opinion on either game, but decided to go with a small side play on each matchup. Please note these are NOT strong calls, so don't let me influence any decision you might have wither way. Good luck if you're playing along.
Loads of stuff on Saturday, which is always the case at this time of year. I'm on five college basketball games as of now. NHL to be determined and I sent a pair of small calls on the two NFL conference title games. Here's one of the college hoop games I'm on. Good luck if you decide to play along. And please be sure to consider purchasing one of the packages available on this page. We're getting into what is normally a nice time of the year!
Take: 708 AIR FORCE -1
Nice Wednesday here. Just a split in hoops on Furman and Irvine. But the Blackhawks delivered a good sized underdog win in the NHL, so a good night overall.
Currently on a pair in baskets tonight. NHL still being worked on. Here's one of the hoops.
641 DETROIT MERCY +6
Nice comeback by the Blackhawks as the Tuesday free play. I went 2-1 with my NHL plays, and have a nice run going with the pucks over the last several days. Not nearly as pleased with the college baskets, which continue to bounce back and forth, and I'm down a couple units for the month to date with the roundball.
Three plays tonight for me as of now. Here's one of the CBB plays.
859 UC IRVINE -7.5
I missed with my half unit call on Clemson. But Monday still worked out okay thanks to a profitable evening in the NHL. That's where I'm heading for tonight's comp play. Don't forget to check out the available packages at Cokin's Picks and email me if you've got questions or want compete details.
Take: BLACKHAWKS -110
Pretty good weekend here with a small overall Saturday win and a 1-0 Sunday thanks to a 1-0 shutout on the ice. All eyes on the National Championship Game tonight between Clemson and Ohio State. Here's my play. Not a huge opinion by any means, but I'll have a little action.
CLEMSON +5.5 or better
Very slight edge to Clemson in terms of power rating value. I made the game LSU -4.5. I give LSU one point for the site, but am also giving Clemson one point for the title game experience, so that's an offset. The LSU offense is an absolute machine, and Clemson is probably a little fortunate to be here. They got some tremendous help from the stripes in the rally against Ohio State. I can't consider this to be a strong view as I've got it nearly on the number. But it's the title game and I'll make a small bet based on the numbers. Half unit on Clemson +5.5 or better.
No time for anything other than the free play today. Here's one of my college basketball selections from today's mammoth schedule.
799 USC +1
Strong results on Thursday, but things will be quiet for me with the thin Friday slate. I will therefore pass on a free play today ( I only post actual plays here, no more added opinions I'm not backing myself). Back tomorrow!
Small win on Wednesday, thanks to UMass. Busy card tonight, with five college basketball plays altogether, one of which I'll include here as the daily free play. To get all my plays, check out the packages available at Cokin's Picks on this page. Meanwhile, here's one of the games I bet tonight.
640 ORAL ROBERTS -3.5
Bad read on Nashville as they lost to the Bruins on Tuesday night. New coach angle has been good thus far in the NHL, and first period of first game under the new coach was 5-0. Make that 5-1 as the Preds gave up an early goal to the Bruins and trailed throughout.
I played a couple of Wednesday hoops early Tuesday evening. Here's one of them as the daily free play.
850 Cal State Bakersfield pk
Very abbreviated blog today, as I'm racing to the studio for today's The Ls Vegas Sportsline.
Bruins at Predators
Take: Predators 1P and Full Game (half unit each)
Bump in the road on Saturday. Followed up a 5-1 Thursday-Fridy by limping to a 2-5 record yesterday. Couple tough beats in the group, but they're part of the game. Bounce back time today.
I have a three-game CBB card, NHL still TBD and passing the NFL doubleheader. One of the hoops trio is an extra board matchup, and I'll toss that one out here as the daily free play.
