1-2 last night after our player props didn’t come through. We needed one rebound from Bridges in the final 21 minutes and couldn’t get it. Ayton finished with 11 points. Trends looked good but they didn’t come through for us. It’s been a cold week with two losing days in a row and a 1-1 day Monday. We are chasing 3 units and need a good day today and tomorrow to set up what WILL be a huge NFL Wild Card weekend.
Iowa ML / Wisconsin ML (-136) – We hit our College Basketball play earlier this week and we go for another here. #5 9-2 Iowa will go on the road to face 6-5 Maryland. Maryland is just 2-5 over their last 7 games. Iowa has won 2 straight and those wins came against #19 Northwestern and #14 Rutgers. Iowa has averaged 20 more points per game than Maryland. Go Hawkeyes! #8 Wisconsin will host Indiana who have gone 0-3 against ranked teams this season. Both teams have played good defense this season and this game will be a battle. Wisconsin has been better across the board and the #8 ranked team should win this one tonight.
Arizona Over (70.5) – Arizona comes in 9-1 this season and they have scored 70 or more points in 9 of their 10 games. A solid 90% trend! They have scored 75+ in their 4 games against Conference opponents. USC has started their season 6-2 but they have only played 2 conference opponents. They allowed 72 to Colorado who have averaged 75 ppg this season. The thing I like is that USC has shown that they can play at a fast pace scoring 95, 76, 79, 91, & 86. This combined total could very well go over as well but I think the high percentage play here is the Arizona team total at 70.5.
DON’T BET UNTIL EMBIID’S STATUS IS CONFIRMED.
76ers (-120) – The Sixers squeaked a win out for us last night in a high scoring game. I think that case will be true again tonight when they take on the Nets. Philly is 7-1 on the season and that 1 loss came on their only other back to back. However, the Nets will be without Kevin Durant and a few other less impactful players. Joel Embiid is the X Factor for this bet. If he’s not playing then we don’t take it. I suggest holding off until later in the day to place this bet until it’s announced if he’s playing or not. He did not play in the last back to back for the Sixers. The Nets are just 4-4 on the season and have lost 2 out of their last 3 without Durant. With Embiid in, I think the Sixers get the win for us.
