5-UNIT Best Bet on Tulane plus the [points and sprinkle 0.75 UNITS on the money line
I will get right to it and start with this terrific money line betting angle that has systematically earned a 38-28 record for 58% winning bets and by averaging a whopping +200 underdog bet, the Dime Bettor has made a $47,000 profit over the last 25 seasons and earned $24,000 on a 32-35 losing record. This is the strength and value of identifying underdogs in college football that can win the game too.
From my predictive models I expect Tulane to gain a minimum of 5.0 YPPL and score 28 or more points. In past games in which they met or exceeded these measures they have gone on to a 46-15 SU record and a 50-10 ATS mark for 83.3% winners since 2013.

When conference foes look to upset an alite power house program like Ohio State and fail miserably the hangover can be massive and in some games season-low performances have happened. Home dogs that played Ohio State in their previous game have gone 32-45-3 ATS for 42% wins. If our home dog lost to Ohio State in the previous game our home pup is a money-burning 12-45-3 ATS for 21% wins OR playing against these emotionally wounded home dogs have hit 79% winning bets since 1980.

North Texas is 16-5 ATS off three straight wins against conference rivals. Both of these teams are running hot and it would be a shame to see UTSA’s perfect season go to the trash bin. I think they will get the win in possibly a last minute game winning score, but will not win the game by double digits.
Betting on teams that are on a three or more-game win streak and are facing a team that is on a five or more game win streak has earned a 140-116-10 ATS for 5% winning bets over the last 10 seasons. If our team is hosting the game, they improve to 58-39-3 for 60% winners. If our host is the dog they have earned a 25-16 record for 61% ATS winners and if our homer is a double-digit underdog they have gone 8-3 ATS for 73% winners.

Maryland and Rutgers need a win to become bowl eligible. So, how do 5 win teams in the final game of the regular season perform ? Road teams sporting 5-6 records and coming off a loss are 39-21-4 ATS for 65% winning bets over the last 10 seasons. 5-6 record hosts that are coming off a loss are a money-burning 29-34-1 for 46% ATS last10 seasons.

Rutgers is 1-7 ATS for 12% wins when the current game is at home in games spanning the last 10 seasons; 3-15 ATS in home games after scoring 6 or fewer points in the previous game; 13-30 ATS in home games after having lost 2 out of their last 3 games.

4-Unit Best Bet on Georgia First half line minus the points
I do not remember the last time I wagered on a favorite of more than -31 points, but trust me it is rare and there are strong reasons I am betting on the Georgia Bulldogs. However, we are looking at the first half line here because of the risk that Georgia gets out to a huge lead and then looks to get their starters out of the game knowing the SEC Championship game is on deck.
Betting on the first half line with favorites of 17.5 or more points competing against a foe that scored fewer than 10 points has earned a sensational 35-11 ATS record using the first half line in games played over the last 10 seasons. With a current first half line of 20.5 points this is a great opportunity with a team that is historically one of the best over the last 2 decades at least.
Georgia’s defense has attained an incredible 31.4 defensive yards-per-point measure. That means that opponents have had to gain 31 yards to get a single point on the scoreboard. The second-best defensive unit in the nation is Penn State and they are light years behind Georgia sporting a 21.5 YPPT measure.

4-UNIT Best Bet on Ohio State minus the points
Ohio State (9-1, 7-0 Big Ten) is coming off its most efficient offensive performance of the season and that is just not the news that the overachieving Spartans wanted to hear. OSU had scoring touchdowns on its first six possessions in a 59-31 win against Purdue last week. MSU does have the nation’s best runner of the football in Kenneth Walker, who has gained 1,473 rushing yards including 17 TDs, and their QB Payton Thorne, who is second in the conference to OSU’s sensational CJ Stroud with 21 touchdown passes.
Stroud has had three games in which he threw for five touchdowns without throwing an interception. OSU leads the nation scoring an average of 46.3 PPG and the MSU defense has a nearly impossible task of containing this explosive offense.
In Week 11 and on during the regular season, teams that are ranked higher in the AP poll and are favored by 14.5 or more points are 29-1 SU and 17-11-2 ATS for 61% winners and if the game is in Week 11 and beyond, they are 26-1 SU and 17-9-1 for 67% winners.
From the predictive models I have developed over more than two decades there is a high probability that OSU will score at least 28 points and/or gain at least 7.5 yards per play and/or gain 500 or more total offensive yards. Over the past ten seasons, OSU is 62-1 SU and 44-17-1 ATS for 72% winners when scoring 28 or more and gaining 500 or more yards.

Betting on road teams that are facing a host that is completing 64% or more of their passes and is coming off a game in which they gained 7 or more yards per pass attempt has earned a 52-25 ATS record for 68% winning bets over the last five seasons. This angle works against Arizona and underscores the probability that Arizona will have some form of regression on offense.
Betting on road dogs that have failed to cover the number in 3 out of their last four games and facing a host that has covered the number in 3 of their last four games has earned a 38-19 ATS record good for 65.5% winners since 2014 and 10-5 ATS if our highway traveler is a double-digit underdog.
From the predictive models, we are looking for the Carolina offense to gain 125 or more rushing yards and for the Carolina defense to force two or more turnovers. In past games when the Panthers have met or exceeded these performance measures they have earned a 38-10-1 SU record and a 42-7 ATS mark good for 88% winning bets. Perfect 4-0 ATS when installed as a road double-digit underdog.

10-UNIT Best Bet on Tampa Bay minus the points
The Bucs are rolling and with a veteran GOAT Tom Brady at the lead, they will not go into Landover, Md thinking the game is won before it is played. Since Brady arrived the Bucs are 5-1 ATS with the average margin of victory 15.7 points. Once again the Bucs defense is playing well and this is not good news for the Football Team, who has not had multiple touchdowns in each of the last three games, and have had four on the season. Only Houston is worse with give games scoring one or fewer touchdowns.
Brady said, "I don't think there's one area we can't be better," and his teammates are focused on responding to that 36-27 loss to the Saints. "Come in and continue to put the work in every day regardless of what the outcome was in the Saints game," safety Antoine Winfield Jr. said. "Just to come back here and continue to work because we have a nice stretch ahead of us. Come out here and continue to be better and go out there and win games." When I see statements in the press like these, it immediately reflects the focus the team has to get better – not to win the Super Bowl – the Super Bowl win occurs because the focus all season has been to get better each week.
The Bucs lead the NFL in passing offense gaining 327.5 yards per game and scoring at 32.5 PPG. Brady has thrown throwing for 2,650 yards and a league-high 25 touchdowns through eight games. The 44-year-old GOAT, for the first time in his career, has a plethora of playmakers to connect with on the field. Receiver Mike Evans, will be the third-fastest to 70 TDs in NFL history with his next TD catch. Chris Godwin and Antonio Brown and tight ends Rob Gronkowski, O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate round out the incredible depth the Bucs possess.
Betting on road favorites that allow 18 to 23 PPG and is now facing a horrid defense allowing at least 27 PPG on the season has earned a 39-16-3 ATS record for 71% winning bets over the last five season. If our favorite is lined between 4.5 and 11.5 points the record soars to an incredible 21-4 ATS mark for 84% winning bets.
From my predictive models one projection stands out and has a high probability of being achieved in the game. Football team is 2-12 ATS in when they have allowed 400 or more total yards in games played over the last three seasons.

4% (4-UNIT) Bet on Rutgers
Indiana is on a five-game losing streak and the magic of last season seems like it was decades ago. Coach Allen is a master motivator and one of the most respected teachers and mentors in the College ranks, but sometimes there is just too many mountains to climb over. In their last game, they were dominated on both sides of the ball in a 29-7 loss to Michigan. The loss also removed them from any chance of being bowl eligible making it even more difficult for ANY team to respond with a massive performance.
Rutgers (4-5, 1-5) is coming off a 52-3 home beat down to Wisconsin, BUT remain bowl eligible if they win two more games. During the Wisconsin loss, the team lost wide receiver and kick returner Aron Cruickshank to a season-ending injury. QB Noah Vedral, who sustained an undisclosed injury in the third quarter and did not return, will be starting in this game from all that I have read. Moreover, Vedral starting is not a condition for this play to be valid as Rutgers does possess many backups at the position that are more than ready to step and take advantage of the audition for next year. The players are Cole Snyder, Evan Simon or true freshman Gavin Wimsatt.
Betting on road teams after scoring 3 or fewer points in the first half last game and that are facing a host, who scored 9 or fewer points in their last game has produced a highly profitable 25-5-1 ATS record good for 80% winning bets over the last five seasons and is 13-3 ATS over the last three seasons.

4-UNIT Best Bet on PSU plus the points.
Michigan is just 10-23 ATS in road games and coming off a cover by double digits. PDSU head coach Franklin is 14-3 ATS coming off a road conference win and 12-4 ATS coming off a win of 17 or more points and 15-3 ATS off a road win. PSU is also 16-4 ATS coming off a game in which they committed no turnovers.
This matchup is all about the vastly under rated PSU defense that ranks in the top-5 in many of the meaningful advanced analytics. They rank 3rd nationally with a defensive 20.8 yards per point allowed, for instance, and I believe Michigan’s offense is going to have a nightmare trying to move the chains in Happy Valley, which has the best home field advantage of 6-points.
From the predictive models, Michigan is 1-7 ATS the last three seasons when committing 2 or more turnovers and 9-25 ATS when allowing 250 or more passing yards. Dotson and QB Clifford are expected to connect on deep vertical routes where the Michigan defense is the most vulnerable.

5-UNIT Best Bet on the Carolina Panthers plus the points
Christian McCaffrey is expected to return from injured reserve this week and is eligible to play in this game. He has missed the last five games with a hamstring injury and Carolina is just 1-4 in those games. McCaffrey has missed 18 of the team's past 24 games with injuries, but he is back for this game, and he is rested and healed. I expect him to be on a snap count with Chuba Hubbard, Royce Freeman and Ameer Abdullah to be actively involved in the game plan. Carolina can run different formations with and without McCaffery in the game and I do believe that alone will keep the Patriots guessing and off balance.
Zane Gonzalez, who has made 13 of 15 field-goal attempts and 13 of 14 extra points. He was 4 of 4 on field goals last week vs. Atlanta, including a career-long of 57 yards to earn NFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors.
I like this bet as a 5- UNIT wager even if McCaffery is OUT for this game should there be a mishap in the warmup sessions. This play is far more about the Carolina defense matching up quite well against Mac Jones and the Patriots offense.
Carolina ran 47 rushing plays gaining 203 yards in their win against the Falcons in Week 8. The 47 rushing attempts was the fourth-highest single-game total in Panthers history and their highest since 2009. So, with McCaffery back in action, the Panthers will establish the ground attack against the Patriots run defense that ranks 16th in the league.
The Panthers have a tremendous pass rush and recorded three sacks last week and shut down a very good statistical QB in Matt Ryan. The Panthers defense ranks 2nd allowing 295.6 yards per game and their secondary is among the best. They rank third allowing just 5.9 yards per pass attempt, 2nd allowing 188.8 passing yards per game, and 4th with a 7.6% sack percentage.
This is a highly profitable money line betting angle that has posted a 35-9 record good for 80% winning bets over the last five seasons and has made the dime bettor a profit of $26,000. Bet on a team using the money line in a non-conference matchup and is coming off a road win over a divisional rival. If our team is playing at home, the record has been 23-6 for 79% winning bets.
From the predictive model, we learn that the Panthers are an incredible 54-9-2 ATS for 86% winning bets and 61-4 SU in home games scoring 24 or more points and winning the turnover battle (having fewer turnovers than the opponent) and 7-1 ATS over the last three seasons.

Now, that you purchased this 3-pack, I like taken a flyer on these three dogs that I just like quite a bit and doing a 0.25 unit round robin parlay. As I have stated on so many CFB shows as a host or guest over the past several weeks there have been 17 underdogs of 17.5 or more points that have WON the game this season. There were seven such dogs in 2020 and much lower number because COVID-19 eliminated so many games. In the 2018 season there were 24 of these dogs that won outright.
Top-20 ranked favorites of 17.5 or more points that is coming off a disheartening loss as a road favorite to a ranked opponent are 2-9 ATS in their next game since the 2012 season (5-1 ATS are these dogs if their current opponent lost in a matchup of Top-10 ranked teams).
Michigan is just 5-20 ATS (-17.0 Units) after scoring 31 points or more in 3 straight games. Master coaching motivator Allen is Allen is 10-2 ATS after allowing 475 or more total yards in their previous game as the coach of IU.

8- UNIT Best Bet Nebraska plus the points
NU committed four turnovers in their 28-23 home loss to Purdue. Note, that they are 25-12 for 68% winners coming off a game in which they committed four or more turnovers. Calls for NU head coach Scott Frost grew louder after the loss to Purdue as his conference record dropped to 15-26 and 6-15 in the West Division of the B10. However, 17 losses have been by one score during Frost’s 4 years at the helm and definitely do not think he has lost his team even just a little bit.
The Buckeyes may lead the nation in scoring offense averaging 47.3 PPG, but they had seven false starts in their home win over Penn State. The Buckeyes were 1-for-6 in the red zone against the second-best defense in the nation based on my numbers. PSU QB Clifford shredded the Ohio State secondary – as I had predicted in my top-rated 5-UNIT best bet winner last week – for 361 passing yards. The OSU came to the aid of the sputtering offense with a huge game-changing 57 yard TD fumble return. Bottom line, PSU had the game plan to upset the Buckeyes and you can bet Frost and his staff have been studying that in great detail.
Frost is 6-0 ATS after losing 5 or 6 of their last seven games. After throwing just three interceptions in the first eight games, NU QB Adrian Martinez, threw four interceptions in the loss to Purdue. Frost was a starting QB for Nebraska. He knows the ups and downs of being a QB at the highest level of NCAAF play and I am looking for Martinez to have a huge game. Remember, that OSU secondary has been attacked this season and Martinez and wideouts have the skillsets to exploit that secondary all game.
Betting against favorites of 10.5 to 21 points in a game with two solid scori ng defenses allowing between 16 and 21 points per game and with the favorite coming off back to back games scoring at least 20 points in each of the last two games in the first half has earned a 42-14 ATS record for 75% winning bets over the last 30 seasons, 9-1 ATS for 90% winning bets over the last five seasons, and 17-5 ATS over the last 10 seasons.

This is the second time that Liberty will take on an SEC foe. The first one was a 59-0 loss to Auburn as a 28.5 point dog back in week 11 of the 2018 season. Liberty has without doubt become a much stronger football program since then, but they do not have the depth, especially on defense to contain the high-powered fast paced offensive style of play that Kiffin employs. Moreover, this marks the third game they have been ranked and favored by single digits to an unranked foe. They are 2-0 ATS in the previous two games.
From my predictive models, there is a high probability that Mississippi will score at least 28 points. They are 5-1 ATS this season, 14-5 the past three seasons when scoring 28 or more points. They are 8-0 ATS in games outgaining their opponent by 200 or more yards and scoring 28 or more points.

5-UNIT Contrarian Game of the Month on the Penn State Nittany Lions
The line for this huge showdown in the Big Ten opened with the Buckeyes installed as 16.5 point home favorites and has seen steady one-sided action on the Buckeyes propelling the line to 19.5 points. Penn State lost to Illinois last week in an FBS-record nine overtimes, 20-18. The Nittany Lions have now lost two in a row after winning their first five, though both losses were decided by three or fewer points. 78% of the tickets are on the PSU based on the 12 sportsbooks I track and that is just a sign of recency bias and irrational exuberance that lends itself to this contrarian bet.
Here is a contrarian style betting system that has earned an incredible 29-6 ATS record over the last five seasons and is 15-2 ATS for 88% winning bets over the last three seasons. Bet on dogs between 10 and 21 points that have not covered the spread in two of their last three games and is facing an opponent that has covered 5 or 6 of their last seven games.
If the hot running high powered favorite is coming off back-to-back wins of 35 or more points and now facing a team that has lost to the spread in 2 of their last three games, the record is a horrid 2-9 ATS.
Betting on teams coming off a loss of six or fewer points and is now facing an opponent that is coming off three consecutive games in which 60 or more points were scored are a highly profitable 39-14-1 ATS for 74% winning bets over the last five seasons.
There have been 17 underdogs of 17.5 or more points that have the game straight up this season. Just 7 such monster dog wins in 2020 due to COVID reducing the overall number of games played. 108 17.5 points that won outright since the start of the 2016 season. In Week 8 of this season Illinois was a 18 point dog to PSU, Rice was a 24 point dog to UAB and won 30-24, and New Mexico defeated Wyoming 14-3 as a 30-point road underdog.
Here is a money betting system that underscores the contrarian nature of these types of games and why they often grade extremely strong by my predictive models. Bet on a game after game number 7 with an offensive team averaging 340 to 400 yards-per-game and is now facing an opponent coming off a game in which they gained over 475 total yards and is an excellent offensive team averaging more than 440 total yards per game. If you had bet on these situations over the last 10 seasons using the money the money line, you would have gone 29-31 for just 48% winners, but by averaging a whopping +285 underdog bet, you would have profited 50 units in winnings.
Ohio State’s defense is vulnerable to the PSU offense exploiting their secondary. Dotson has not caught a TD pass in two games, but I would be shocked if he did not catch at least one in this game. Dotson and the Buckeyes Garrett Wilson are the only players in the Big Ten with at least 550 receiving yards (552) and six touchdown catches.
Here’s the deal. I love Penn State’s defense and they do rank 3rd in the nation and tops in the Big Ten with a 22.0 yards per point ratio (YPPT). Georgia is having a historic season and rank best defense with an incredible 31.8 YPPT ratio. Clemson is second with a 23.2 YPPT ratio. I know OSU has three weapons in Wilson and Chris Olave and true freshman running back TreVeyon Henderson, who leads the country average g 8.8 yards-per-rush.
The Buckeyes have not had a turnover in three consecutive games and somehow the Lions defense is going to force at least two of them based on my predictive models. Since 2016, the Buckeyes have played three straight games committing not one turnover but are 0-2 ATS the following game. The last time that happened for the Buckeyes, Penn State came to Columbus and won 27-26 in week 5 of the 2018 season.

Georgia vs Florida
TIIA Stadium, Jacksonville, FL
4-UNIT Best bet on Georgia minus the points
Stetson Bennett has been named the starter at QB for the bulldogs and former-starter JT McDaniels upgraded to available for this game in Jacksonville, FL.
Betting on favorites of 10 to 21 points that are coming off a game in which 60 or more points were scored and after coming off back-to-back games in which seven or fewer points were allowed in the first half has earned a 76-37-1 SATS record for 68% winning bets spanning the last 10 seasons.
My research simply states that we may be watching one of the best CFB ever or at least the last 2 decades. Even though both teams were idle last week, Georgia and Florida enter their annual showdown heading in opposite directions. The Bulldogs have been dominant, outscoring their seven opponents -- including four who were ranked -- 269-46, culminating with their 30-13 win over then-No. 11 Kentucky on Oct. 16.
The play of Georgia's defense has emerged as one of the biggest storylines of the season nationally. The Bulldogs have given up a national-best 6.6 points per game, nearly eight points fewer than Michigan, which ranks second at 14.3 points per game. Georgia also ranks first nationally in total defense (208.3 ypg) and first downs allowed (84), in addition to ranking second in rushing defense (63.4 ypg) and passing defense (144.9 ypg).
Meantime, Florida is coming off a 49-42 loss against LSU on Oct. 16. The Tigers rushed for 321 yards on 45 attempts, an average of more than seven yards a carry. LSU amassed 454 yards of total offense against the Gators, who lost for the third time in their past five games since opening 2-0.
True freshman tight end Brock Bowers - who leads the Bulldogs in receptions (25), yards (416) and receiving touchdowns (6) -- and redshirt freshman receiver Ladd McConkey, who has 17 catches for 295 yards and two scores, have emerged as the team's top receivers.
The Gators' question at quarterback stems from their season-opening starter, junior Emory Jones, being inconsistent. Jones started in the 49-42 loss to LSU, but he was pulled in favor of freshman Anthony Richardson, who led the Gators into the end zone on four straight possessions in the second half. However, they both threw two interceptions.
Bennett has started the past three games and has played in the past six. He's completed 57-of-82 passing for 996 yards with 11 touchdowns and two interceptions. He's also had 19 carries for 148 yards on the ground.

4- UNIT Best Bet on Texas Tech plus the points
This is one oof those dogs I have referenced on many shows this CFB season. There have been 14 underdogs of 17.5 or more points that won the game SU. This monumental upset occurs every season averaging 14 times. This year I have my 5- UNIT SEC game of the Month on Texas A&M in their win over then-No. 1 Alabama. I nor anybody else on the planet knows when these major upsets will take place, but this one is certainly worth a sprinkle of no more than 1- UNIT using the money line.
Texas Tech lost their head coach Matt Wells after a very horrid stretch in which Tech allowed 70 to the Longhorns and 52 to TCU at home two weeks ago. This past week Tech blew a 24-10 half time lead. Teams and their players have pride and motivation to respond to adversity – or they simply would not be playing football at the highest level. So, I think former OC Sonny Cumbie will get his team fully motivated to play their best and mpost physical game this season. Last, if you take away the 76-0 win against FCS Western Carolina, the Sooners’ average score in their seven FBS games this season has been by a margin of eight points and 37-29.
From my predictive model, Tech is 12-6 ATS over the L3 seasons and 150-64 ATS L15 seasons in games scoring 28 or more points. Let’s see what happens here as the models are on Tech and yes they do know this is the first week having a new head coach.

4-UNIT Best Bet on the 49ers minus the points
49ers coming off the BYE and that is always a good thing for bettors to back knowing that Shanahan is 5-0 ATS coming off three losses. Plus, Colts on a 3 game ats win streak while the 49ers are on a three game ATS losing streak. Teams that are on a 3 or more-game ATS losing streak that are facing a foe on a 3 or more-game ATS win streak are 27-14 for 67% winning bets over the last 10 seasons. If the game is taking place in a prime time slot, these teams are 5-1 ATS for 83% winning bets over the last ten seasons.
Do not be misled by the Colts win over Houston. The Colts led the Texans by just 16 yards at the half and had a suspect 10-3 lead. Texans fumbled the ball away near midfield leading to a Colts score.
Despite the 49ers not having Garoppolo at the helm the 49ers lead the NFL averaging 7.3 yards gain after the catch. They rank 23rd averaging 5.8 air yards per catch, which is the distance form the line of scrimmage to the point on the field where the receiver catches the ball. So, with Garoppolo on the injured list, the offense under Trey Lance was reduced to a dink and dunk scheme. Now, he is back today, the 49ers full offensive playbook will be available, and I believe it will have a high dose of vertical crossing routes.
49ers will be effective with their ground attack, and this opens up play action, which they have run only 51 times this season. They rank 15th in play action pass plays and when Garoppolo is in platy action he becomes so much better.
From the predictive models, we learn that San Fran is 9-1 ATS in home games when gaining 250 or yards of total offense and scoring more than 24 points in games played over the last five seasons.

Packers are just 9-22 ATS when facing a terrible defense that is allowing 6 or more yards per play on the season. Washington HC Rivera is 9-1 ATS in a road game and has failed to cover the spread in 4 or 5 of their last six games for his career.

4-Uni Bet on the TCU Horned Frogs minus the points
Both teams have had disappointing starts to their seasons. No one thought WVU would be 2-4 through 7 weeks and would share the last place with Kansas and Kansas State. TCU is fresh off a 52-31 loss to Oklahoma in Norman, but had a career-best performance from QB Max Duggan and WR Quentin Johnston. Duggan injured his foot, but has been cleared to start in this game.
West Virginia ranks in the bottom half of the conference in most significant offensive categories, including rushing offense (111.8 yards per game, last in the B12).
The Mountaineers' problem running the ball is gives TCU a monumental advantage at the line of scrimmage. Leddie Brown ran for 1,010 yards last season and was a first-team All-Big 12 selection, is rushing for an average of just 70.3 yards per game this season. The offensive line run blocking has been terrible to say the least and they are not getting a push down field or maintaining blocks long enough for Brown to shoot through the gaps.
From the predictive models, TCU is projected to pass for an average of at least 10 yards per pass attempt and score at least 28 points. In past games over the last 5 seasons, TCU is 24-13 ATS for 65% when scoring 28 or more points. They are 8-1-1 ATS in games scoring 28+ and averaging 10 or more YPPA over the last five seasons.

Wyoming is just 4-17 ATS coming off a game in which 24 or fewer points were scored. Wyoming was blanked by Fresno State 17-0 last week. Wyoming 1-5 ATS off a game scoring three or fewer points.
There may be as many as six different quarterbacks taking snaps in this game as both coaches attempt to get anemic offenses moving on the field. Low totals such as this one at 40.5/41 points makes it so much easier for a double digit underdog to cover the number. The market has this game as an implied 30-10 Wyoming win and I do not think Wyoming will get more than 27 in this matchup.
Betting on road dogs that have allowed 31 or more points in three straight games and are facing a foe that was defeated by 17 or more points in their last game has earned a highly profitable 60-24 ATS for 72% winning bets over the last 10 seasons.

The sentiment readings are among the widest of ant NFL game over the last five seasons and reflects the betting community’s love affair with the Browns in this matchup. This is a contrarian reading and measure as I had mentioned with Teddy Covers on the Sirius XM Sportsgrid show yesterday. My Twitter application confirms and underscores the wildly bullish exuberance on the Browns and even the Circa Millions has an incredible 1695 entries picking the Browns as one of their 5 picks this week. So, 41% of the total entries in the contest are on the Browns and this rarely works out for the majority when the percentage is even above 25% of the total entries.

4% Best Bet on the Chicago Bears plus the points
Consider adding no more than a 0.75 unit amount betting the Bears using the money line.
The Bears passing attack has been anemic gaining a league-low 729 yards, but let’s hold a minute before simply assuming the netter pedigree Packers are the automatic winner. Teams that have gained fewer than 750 passing yards over a five-game span and are now installed as a dog have earned a 167-131-9 ATS record over the last five seasons. If our dog is installed as no more than a 7.5 point underdog then the record has been 88-58-4 ATS over the last three seasons. Moreover, if filter dogs in a divisional matchup are 25-14 ATS for 64% winning bets over the last three seasons.
The Bears showed they can still gain on the ground even with Montgomery sidelined, running for 143 yards against Las Vegas. Rookie Khalil Herbert rushed for 75 on 18 carries, while Williams had 64 yards. So, if Montgomery and/or Damien Williams (Covid-19 list Thursday) will be a major addition. I still like this bet quite a bit with just Herbert as the lead running back. Moreover, the Packers will without three 2020 Pro Bowl players in left tackle David Bakhtiari, cornerback Jaire Alexander, and outside linebacker Za’Darius Smith. I do believe Chicago was significant matchup advantages going up against their replacements.
The Bears are 25-10 ATS as a home underdog of 3.5 to 7.5 points over the last 30 seasons. Packers are a money-burning 3-13 ATS in road games and riding the crest of a four or more-game win streak. The Bears are the bet.

The Chiefs committed 4 turnovers in their humiliating home loss to the Buffalo Bills and their defense has not forced an opponent turnover in three consecutive games.

Prior to the start of the season, the WestGate had this game lined as A&M installed as a 7.5-point home dog. So, the recent performances of these two teams, especially Alabama, has caused the market to explode in favor of Alabama. The result, though, has been that akin to stock trading, Alabama is now in severely overbought territory, while A&M is a bit over sold. My predictive models are expecting more of a single-digit type of game, but not higher than 14 points.
Betting on any team that is coming off a loss of six or fewer points and is now facing a team that has played in three consecutive games in which 60 or more points were scored have earned a 38-13 ATS record good for 75% winning bets over the last five seasons.
Plus, defending national champions that are 5-0 in the following season do get overpriced and a result are just 6-11 ATS when installed as a favorite and 2-7 ATS when installed as a a road favorite.

The market builds momentum on these 5-0 teams and then in week 6 and 7 become overvalued OR they are playing a foe that is grossly undervalued. In this matchup it is a combination of the two and we are getting rewarded handsomely to bet on Boise plus the points.
Boise has a bit of revenge on their minds as well after getting dominated 51-17 in a loss to BYU last season. Boise lost at Nevada last week, 41-31, their most points allowed since allowing 51 to BYU in 2020. BYU has learned they have three quarterbacks that can manage the game. Quarterback health will be a determining factor in how high the Cougars can climb this season. Jaren Hall started the first three games before missing two contests with a rib injury. Baylor Romney started against South Florida and Utah State, but he played one half against the Aggies before sitting out the second half with a concussion. Jacob Conover, BYU's third-string quarterback, finished out the game against Utah State, helping to secure the 34-20 victory. Hall is listed as questionable for this game and given that it is a ribs injury, I can’t imagine him being able to throw the ball well.
BYU is just 2-10 ATS when facing a defense that is allowing 58% or higher completions in games played over the last three seasons. BYU is 10-23 ATS in home games after a game with a turnover margin of +2 or better.

CMU head coach McElwain is 16-3 ATS when facing a poor defensive team that is allowing 200 or more rushing yards-per-game on the season.
From the predictive side of things, there is a very high probability that CMU will score at least 28 points. In past games when they have scored 28 or more points they have gone on to a 12-2 ATS record over the last three seasons and 83-25 over the last 20 seasons.
Playing on road favorites that are facing a host that has a very poor turnover defense that is averaging fewer than one turnover per game and after 5 straight games in which they forced no more than one turnover in each of them has earned a 31-8 ATS record good for 80% winning bets over the last five seasons.

4% Best Bet on Texas plus the points and sprinkle a bit more on the money line
This game is taking place at the famed Cotton Bowl in Dallas, Texas and hopefully will remain the game called the Red River Rivalry after these teams join the SEC. Texas QB Casey Thompson is a bit of a trader at least perhaps in his family eyes. His brother and father both started at QB for the Sooners, but Casey chose Texas and sat behind Sam Ehlinger for his first three seasons as a Longhorn. He took over the starting job in Week 3 of this season and the offenses has looked monumentally better under his leadership. Including 272 rushing yards in its 32-27 win over TCU last week, Texas has rushed for 1035 yards over its last three games, its most in a three-game span since ripping off 1111 yards from October 15 to November 5, 2011. This is the difference maker in my eyes in this matchup and why I think Texas will not just cover the spread, but win the game.
From the predictive models, Texas will score at least 28 points in this game and are on a 7-1 ATS win streak when playing away from Austin.

8-UNIT Best Bet on the Chargers minus the points
The Las Vegas Raiders are 3-0 for the first time since 2001 and are only the fourth team in NFL history to win two of their first three games in overtime. Th Raiders have won the last two road games against the Chargers, but they have not won three straight since 2001. The Chargers are a winning record team through Week 3 for the first time since 2014. Interesting to note that these two teams have squared off on Monday Night Football 10 times with each team winning five. The road team has won five of the last six and the home team has not won since the Chargers won in a 12-6 all-FG game back in 1995. Enough of the history lesson. Let’s move on to the stuff that matters most.
Betting on any team that is facing an opponent that is averaging 375 or more total yards-per-game and with that team having gained 400 or more total yards in three consecutive games has earned an outstanding 37-12-1 ATS record for 74% winning bets over the last five seasons and 21-6-1 ATS spanning the last three seasons.
LC head coach Gruden is 0-7 ATS following a win of three or fewer points.
From the predictive side of things, the Chargers are 11-0 SU and 10-1 ATS when they have won the turnover battle, having committed fewer turnovers than their opponent in games played over the last five seasons.

Seattle vs San Francisco
4% Best Bet on the 49ers minus the points
The betting frenzy continues with the love-affair the public is having betting on the road dog Seahawks. With a line at now SF as a 2.5-point favorite has me going to window aggressively and even will add a small amount of 1% on the money line at -133 or lower. I also suggest betting this game placing 50% of your 4% (4-UNIT) bet amount pre-flop (before the game starts) and then look to add 25% of your 4-Unit bet size if Seattle scores first and scores via any scoring play except a safety. Add the remaining 25% if Seattle has a 10-point lead. These in-game bets are valid for the first half only. So, if SF gets out to a strong start it, you may end up with only the 50% preflop bet.
From the predictive models I have developed over two decades, we learn that the 49ers are 17-3 ATS and 20-0 SU in home games in which they had fewer turnovers than their opponent and scored at least 27 points in games played over the past 10 seasons.

4% Best Bet on the Jets plus the points
I like taking these types of NFL dogs and adding no more than 1-Unit to the money in addition to the 4-UNIT amount wagered with the spread. Over the course of the entire season, these sprinkles will add more profits to your bottom line.
Betting on underdogs that are facing an opponent that is coming off a game in which they lost to the turnover battle by two or more has earned a 98-53-1 ATS record over the last five seasons. Drilling down a bit further in to the massive database we learn that betting on underdogs that are facing a struggling defense forcing less than one turnover-per-game and coming off a game with a turnover margin of 3 or worse has earned an incredible 25-5 ATS record for 83.3% winning bets and sprinkle has earned an 19-11 straight-up record over the past five seasons.
The Jets are 0-3 for the third consecutive season after the team's 26-0 loss against the Broncos. It is the first time ever that the Jets have been 0-3 in three consecutive seasons. These losses were against the best defenses in the NFL, especially Denver. So, now they face a Tennessee defensive unit that has forced just one turnover this season/ That lone take-away occurred in a Week 1 interception by safety Kevin Byrd. My research makes me confident you will see better blocking, fewer mistakes in pass routes, and superior chemistry in the play calling between OC LeFleur and their rookie QB Zach Wilson.

Betting on road teams in game lined with 3.5 points on either side of pick that outgained their previous opponent by more than 125 total yards and facing a host that allowed 6.25 or more yards-per-play in their previous game has earned a 72-28-2 ATS record good for 73% winning bets over the last ten seasons.
Saturday's game will feature two potent rushing offenses that are fueled by their running quarterbacks. UCLA has gained 200 or more rushing yards in seven of its last 10 games and has held the advantage in the run game in 10 consecutive games. Arizona State is at 211.5 rushing yards per game this season, second best in the conference, while averaging 3.8 rushing touchdowns in each contest. The biggest difference between these two similar teams is the significantly weaker secondary of UCLA. They are getting scorched for 331 passing YPG, which ranks fifth worst in the nation. Jayden Daniels has increased his completion percentage from 58.3 last season to 72.6 this season, which is the third-largest improvement at +14.3 percent in the FBS with a minimum of 75 attempts each year.

4% Best Bet on Mississippi plus the points and a 1% amount on the money line
After Ole Miss won in back-to-back season of 2014 and 2015, Alabama has won five consecutive games in this SEC series, outscoring the Rebels 298-132. Since 2013, the Crimson Tide are 54-2 in Tuscaloosa. The two losses came against No. 1 LSU 46-41 in 2019, the other was to No. 15 Ole Miss 43-37in 2015. After the 2015 loss in Week 3, the Crimson Tide went on to win the National Championship over Clemson capping off a 12-game win streak.
The Rebels top the nation with 635.3 yards of offense per game, are fourth with 7.65 per play and slot fourth in rushing offense at 298.7 per contest. They have committed just two turnovers.
QB Matt Corral has emerged as a Heisman Trophy frontrunner, throwing for 997 yards and nine touchdowns without an interception. He has rushed for five scores. He also passed for 365 yards and two TDs in last season’s 63-48 loss and having that experience is invaluable knowing too, that he will be facing a Crimson Tide defensive unit that has regressed significantly from previous seasons.
Florida gashed the Tide for 245 rushing yards on 43 rushing plays. The Florida defense did not even gain100 rushing yards tallying just 91 yards on 28 carries against the Florida defense. I believe Mississippi is superior on both sides of the ball comparted to Florida and is why I think the upset has very real potential Saturday afternoon in Tuscaloosa.

4% 8-UNIT Best Bet on the Wisconsin Badgers minus the points
Michigan is off to a 4-0 start to their season and will look to make it five straight with a win for the first time in 20 seasons when they visit the Badgers in Madison. This is also the first road game for the Wolverines, who have lost the last 5 meetings in Madison.
The Badgers failed to appear in the AP-25 top rankings after a 41-13 loss Saturday to 9th ranked Notre Dame. The score was quite misleading though, as the Badgers made far too many mistakes and turnovers including TWO pick-6 and special teams TDs in the 4th quartter. They had a 13-10 lead in the 4th stanza before completely imploding. They are an incredibly good defensive team and especially at stopping the run. They held ND to just 9 yards rushing and are allowing 23 RYPG over their first three games.
Michigan is averaging 350 RYP and 47 PPG in their four games but struggled in their conference opener against Rutgers. Despite leading 20-3 at the half, they had just 2 FD in the second half and held on for 20-13 win and were ‘out-statted’ in the box score too. I see Wisconsin dominating both sides of the line-of-scrimmage and winning this game potential in cruise-control fashion.
From my predictive models, Wisconsin is expected to outgain Michigan by 150 to 200 total yards and in past games when they have achieved this level of performance, they have earned a 28-7 ATS record for 80% winning bets over the last 10 seasons.

5% or 10-UNIT Best bet on UVA plus the points
The line opened with Miami favored by 3.5 points and early bettor action has moved the market to Miami -3. Both teams are 2-2 SU on the season and this is a pivotable game for both programs. Miami QB D’Eriq King is listed as questionable and even if he does play is not likely to be even close to 80% full strength. The reason this big bet is being released so early in the week is that the line is likely to move closer to pick-em than say 4.5 points.
UVA head coach Mendenhall is 20-7-1 ATS in his coaching career coming off a back-to-nack games losing the turnover battle. Miami head coach Diaz is a money-losing 1-8 ATS off of a home win.
Betting on road teams that are coming off a game forcing zero turnovers and now facing an opponent that is coming off four consecutive games forcing no more than one turnover has earned a highly profitable 34-9-1 ATS for 79% winning bets over the past five seasons. 55% of the winning bets covered the spread by at least 7 points.
Supporting the SU win by UVA is a money line situational angle that has earned a 20-14 record for 60% winning bets that have averaged a +180 wager. Bet on road teams that are coming off back-to-back games allowing 9 or more passing yards-per-attempt and taking on a host that allowed 5.5 passing yards-per-attempt in their last game. I state confidently that UVA will win this game outright even if Miami’s King starts and even greater margin if he does not.

Dallas is 40-19 ATS coming off a game in which they allowed 300 or more passing yards; 36-18 ATS in home games coming off a game in which they outgained 75 or more rushing yards. Dallas head coach McCarthy is 23-8-1 ATS after a two game road trip; 26-9 ATS in home gamers off of a road win.
From the predictive models and machine learning applications I fully expect Dallas to score at least 28 points. In past games, in which they scored 28 or more points in a home game facing a divisional foe, they are 28-12 ATS for 70% winning bets. Plus, they are an incredible 42-9 ATS in home games when scoring 28 or more points and gaining more rushing yards than their divisional opponent.

The Chargers lost at home to the Cowboys in Week 2. It marked their 16th loss of 7 or fewer points since the 2019 season, most in the NFL. They had 12 costly drive stopping penalties costing them 99 yards marking the most mistakes and penalty yards since Week 11 of the 2018 season. The Chiefs lost to the Ravens 36-35 despite leading by 11 through three quarters. It marked the first time in the Mahomes era that the Chiefs blew a double-digit lead entering the fourth stanza. Now, 29-1 with a double-digit lead entering the fourth.
Stylistically, Brandon Staley's Chargers defense has shown similarities to his 2020 Rams defense through two weeks. The Chargers has shown two-high safeties pre-snap on a league-high 85% of their defensive snaps, and they've had six or fewer defenders in the box 67% of the time (fourth). It's a defense built around limiting explosive passing plays, so Chiefs will look to get the ground game well established early on knowing they allowed 6.4 YPR to the Cowboys ground attack. The Rams defense, by the way, allowed just 41 gains of 20-plus yards last season (12 fewer than any other defense).
The Chiefs will be a major test of that defensive philosophy given their 233 pass plays of 20 or more yards since Mahomes took over in 2018 rank second in the league to only Tampa Bay’s 253 pass plays. The Chargers defense, like all other defenses that face the Chiefs, will choose between a double-team of Hill or Kelce. The Ravens doubled Hill and gave up seven catches for 109 yards to Kelce.
The Chargers are 1-10 ATS after gaining 400 or more yards in their previous game spanning the past three seasons.
From the predictive side of things, The Chiefs are expected to score at least 28 points in this game and are 17-8 ATS for 678% winning bets in games played over the past 5 seasons when scoring 28+ points.

4% Best Bet on Jacksonville plus the points and add a small sprinkle using the money line.
Kyler Murray is the first QB in NFL history to have at least three passing touchdowns and a rushing touchdown in each of his first two games of a season. Trevor Lawrence's 84 pass attempts are the fourth most by any QB in the Super Bowl era over his first two career games, behind Joe Burrow (97), Kyler Murray (94) and Mike Glennon (86). Jacksonville’s defense has allowed 350 or more yards in 15 straight games and is the second-longest streak in NFL history. However, my predictive models show solid expectations that this will be the game that ends that streak.
Jacksonville has lost 6 straight games by double digits. However, past teams, who have lost 6 straight by double digits, and installed as a 7.5 to 11.5 point underdog has earned an 8-3 ATS record for 73% winning bets over the last five seasons. Further good news for the Jags are that 0-2 home dogs in Week 3 are 10-4 ATS over the last five seasons.

In Cincinnati's 20-17 loss to Chicago, the Bengals committed four turnovers with three interceptions and a lost fumble. Cincinnati went the entire 2020 season without committing four or more turnovers in a single game. Note that teams that are coming off a game with 4 or 5 turnovers and now facing an opponent that they previously defeated are 18-12 for 60% ATS over the last three seasons and when installed as a dog, has earned a 10-4 ATS mark for 71% winning bets over the last five seasons.

CSU is coming off a double digit road win and are 25-11 ATS in the next game. CSU head coach Addazio is 14-3 ATS in road games facing a non-conference foe and 17-6 ATS in road games in the first half of the season. He is also 12-4 ATS as a road dog facing a winning record program.
Is Iowa the 5th best team in the nation and are they better than 6th-ranked Penn State? My answer is positively not! Iowa and Colorado State are meeting for the first time ever. Iowa beat Kent State at home last week, 30-7. The Hawkeyes have held opponents to 21 or fewer points in 10 straight games, the longest active streak in FBS. The last time Iowa had a longer streak was 11 games between 1959 and 1960. Colorado State earned its first win of the season last week at Toledo, 22-6. You may remember I had Toledo +17-point underdog, who had Notre Dame on the ropes before losing by just 2-points. The Rams did not allow a touchdown in their win over Toledo, which was the first time since 2016 against Fresno State.
Trey McBride leads the Rams in receptions (30) and receiving yards (339). McBride has been responsible for 46.9 percent of the Rams' receptions this season. I believe you will see a much more balanced offensive attack from the Rams because Iowa is going to bracket McBride in underneath and over the top routes.

5% Best Bet on the Chargers
I have never given out a 10-unit play and my 5% and 5-UNIT best bets have always been my top-rated strongest best bets for more than a decade.
The Dallas offensive line will get a boost now that guard Zack Martin, who missed the season opener on the Covid-19 list, is available. However, that is more than offset by the loss of tackle La’el Collins to a five-game suspension for a violation of the N.F.L.’s substance-abuse policy. Couple Dallas’s offensive line reshuffling with the still-developing defense that is extremely weak in the back end going against Justin Herbert and Keenan Allen, and it looks as though the Cowboys will not pass this test this afternoon.
Putting up 403 passing yards and three touchdowns in the Cowboys' Week 1 loss, Dak Prescott showed that he wasn’t going to ease his way back from last season’s gruesome ankle injury while nursing a significantly bruised shoulder muscle he strained in training camp. In that game, Ezekiel Elliott served mostly as a blocker against Tampa Bay’s defense and the same role be repeated in this matchup.
Dallas is 4-14 ATS off a game in which their QB had 50 passing attempts.
From the predictive side of things, the Chargers are expected to score 27 or more points, force Dallas to have 2 or more turnovers, and have an edge in time-of-possession. In past Charger games over the last 10 season, they are 10-1 ATS over the last 7 seasons!

A matchup that the 49ers have had time to prepare for is the Eagkes defensive front, specificallt Fletcher Cox and Hargrave, who has been underrated fo the past several seasons. Last week Hargrave showed that he is one of the best interior pass rushers winning 48% of all rushes on the QB including double teams. The 49er OL allowed just one pressure last week so, 49ers will be prepared to minimize their impact.
Betting on road teams that are facing a host who allowed 24 or more PPG last season and is coming off a game in which they scored 30 or more points has earned a 32-8 ATS record good for 80% winning bets over the last 35 NFL seasons. Over the last 10 season, this angle has earned a 14-4 ATS record for 78% winning bets.
From the predictive side of things, the 49ers are expected to score at least 28 points. NFL road teams since 2017 that have scored 28 or more points are a solid 124-39 ATS and the 49ers in this role are 7-2 ATS for 78% winning bets.

Lurking in the Dolphins secondary will be cornerback Xavien Howard, who led the N.F.L. in interceptions with 10 thefts last season. It was Howard’s forced fumble and recovery in the fourth quarter against the Patriots that broke the game open for the Dolphins’ Week 1 win. After watching Josh Allen absorb three sacks and eight other hits from the Steelers defense last week, Coach Sean McDermott will certainly adjust the protection to keep his franchise quarterback upright and that will be a very tough assignment against the Dolphins defensive front seven.
Bet on home teams off of a win over a divisional foe and in a matchup of two teams that had winning records last season has earned a 42-12-1 ATS record good for 79% winning bets over the last 25 seasons and is 9-1 ATS over the last 10 seasons.

ESPN College Game Day is on the Happy Valley Campus and Auburn will be playing in by far the largest stadium (111K) in program history. Making it an even greater home field advantage is the fact that this is a Penn State White Out game, which everyone of the 111K fans will be wearing white. There be an almost invisible sliver in the third deck of Auburn fans. My WagerTalk colleague Ralph Michaels makes PSU the greatest home field advantage giving them 6.5 points in Prime Time Night Games.
SEC teams installed as 7 or fewer-point points are a money-losing 9-18 ATS for 33% wins facing a Big Ten foe. The Lions are roaring and is a team that is only going to get better as the season goes on. James Franklin was the head coach at Vanderbilt before he was hired by PSU and knows the SEC conference first-hand. While at Vanderbilt, he went 8-3-1 ATS in home games including a defeat of Auburn. The best fact of all is that Franklin despite all of the negative media attention on him and hi program last season is on a 12-0 SU and 12-0 ATS run coming off back-to-back SU and ATS wins. He is also 40-16 ATS off a win and 14-3 ATS off a game scoring 37 or more points.
From the predictive side of things, my machine learning models show a very high probability that PSU will score 31 or more points and will gain 450 or more offensive yards. PSU in home games, scoring 28 or more yards and gaining 450 or more total yards is 25-4 ATS for 86.2% ATS wins.

FSU head coach Mike Norvell has 10 returning starters on offense including the QB red shirt sophomore transfer Jordan Travis. He will have plenty of targets this season including graduate transfer Andrew Parchman, who spent the last two years in Kansas. He made 20 starts for Kansas tallying 1,028 receiving yards on 89 catches and 9 TDs. Look for him to make key catches in this game, especially on 2nd and 3rd downs to keep the chains moving.
Ironically, Guard Dillon Gibbons transferred from Notre Dame and you can bet this 6-5 321 lb lineman will want to to show what his former team could have had. Overall, the FSU L is much better than last year’s edition because they have played together in at least one seasons and have solid chemistry across the line too.
Betting on under dogs of 3.5 to 10 points in the first four weeks of the season that return at least 8 starters including the QB and had struggles on defense allowing 425 or more YPG in the previous season has earned a highly profitable 59-24-1 ATS record good for 71% winning bets over the last 15 seasons and is 21-7-1 for 67% winning bets over the last five seasons.

On the gridiron, I like to bet these underdogs as a combination bet that consists of 80 to 90% of your normal bet size placed on the line and the remaining 10-20% bet using the money line. So, for this game and if you are $100 bettor for a 4-Unit bet, place $85.00 on the line and $15.00 using the money line. Remember though, this is a recommended strategy, and you always have the option to simply bet the game getting the points.
This is going to be a great game to watch that will have several scoring runs by both teams, who have first-year head coaches. UCF has former Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn, who inherits a terrific offense that averaged 568 yards and 42 PPG. New head BSU head coach is Andy Avalos, who was the defensive coordinator for Oregon and has nine defensive returning starters on one of the best defenses in the Mountain West Conference.
Hank Bachmeier was named the starting QB last week and is a 3-year junior signal caller that is vastly underrated. He has been injured in past seasons preventing him from taking his game to those next levels. He has played in only 13-games over the past two seasons. In his first start of his college career he threw for 407 yards in a win against Florida State on August 31, 2019. He has had 6-games completing over 65% of his passes and three of those were over 70%. His favorite target, senior Khalil Shakir, has caught 131 balls for 1,761 yards, and 13 TDs. Bachmeier will have far more weapons this season in WR-X Stefan Cobbs, WR-H CT Thomas, and junior transfer Davis Koetter.
UCF is just 4-13 ATS in games played over the last three seasons with a total of 65 or more points. From the predictive models there is a very high probability that BSU will score 28 or more points. In past games in which they have scored 28 or more points, they are 10-3 ATS over the last 3 seasons and 70% ATS over the last 30 seasons spanning 210 games.

Game-5 Eastern Conference Playoffs
7:30 PM EST, June 16, 2021
4-unit Best Bet on the 76ers minus the points
Embiid is expected to play tonight and I recommend making this bet about 10-minutes prior to game time. Another option, which is what I will do, is bet 50% of my normal 4% amount at 4:00 ET and then look to add 25% in-game at 76ers +3.5 and then 25% 76ers at pick-em. Another in-game strategy is bet the 76ers line after the Hawks score 10 or more unanswered points. All of the these betting strategies are valid just for the first-half.
Atlanta shot 37% from the field in their 103-100 win in Game-4. Note that road underdogs of 3.5 to 9.5 points that shot less than 40% in the previous game which they won are just 10-34 SU and 17-27 ATS for 38% and 27-17 UNDER. Not a recommendation for the UNDER on my part.
Philadelphia will get it done in game-5 no matter how many minutes Embiid plays tonight.
My machine learning models predict that the 76ers will score at least 117 points. The implied final score based on a 224 point total and the 76ers favored by 7 points is a 76ers 116-108 home win. In past home games in which the 76ers scored at least 115 points and had more fast break points than their guest did has earned an incredible 42-3 SU record, 37-8 ATS mark for 82% winning bets and 32-13 to the OVER.

Brookyln is 32-17 ATS (+1370 per $100 bet) when facing teams scoring at or above the NBA League average of 112 or more points-per-game this season.

Game 3: Series tied 1-1
Jazz @ Grizzlies
FedExForum, Memphis, TN
8-UNIT Best Bet on the Utah Jazz minus the points
This series is tied at 1-game a piece, but Utah is clearly the much better team in this matchup with the Grizzlies. What I like most, is that the Jazz have produced a 0.31 free throw to field goal attempt ratio. This means that they are taking 31% of the total field goals attempted over the first two games, and means they are getting to the charity stripe at a high rate. The Jazz will look to get this ratio to an evem higher level, which puts the Grizzlies in potential foul trouble in the first half. The Grizzlies are not nearly as deep as the Jazz and it will be a monumental advantage to the Jazz if they make more free throws than the Grizzlies.
From the predictive side of things, the ML models project that the Jazz will shoot at least 48% from the field and make at least 20 free throws. Over the past three seasons, playoff teams that have met or erxceeded these performance measures have earned a 48-8 SU record and 42-12 ATS mark good for 78% winning bets over the last three playoff seasons.

Game 4: DEN leads series 2-1
Nuggets @ Trail Blazers
Moda Center, Portland, OR
4-UNIT Best Bet on the Denver Nuggets plus the points and sproinkle a bit more on the money line.
Denver, despite its injuries, took back home court with a win in Game 3 Thursday night in Portland. The Trail Blazers went ice-cold from beyomd the arc in their 120-115 loss, shooting 14-for-45, and the Nuggets took advantage by having made the defensive adjustments they did for Gasme-3. I do not see Portland being able to offset the adjustments that Denver made in game-3 and they are expected to lose this game at home. With a Game-4 win, Denver then will have a home elimination game for Game-5.
Denver has gotten the usual stellar performance from MVP favorite Nikola Jokic, but it has been the role players who have given the Nuggets an edge in the series. Campazzo nearly had a triple-double in Game 3 (11 points, eight rebounds and eight assists) and took a borderline charge on Nurkic, who fouled out in the fourth quarter. Campazzo is a 30-year-old NBA rookie who has been thrust into a starting role with injuries to Murray, Will Barton and PJ Dozier, and he has responded extremely well.
Denver has excellent ball movement and Portland is just 18-32 ATS in home games when facing teams averaging 23 or more assists-per-game over the last two seasons. Denver is 12-4 ATS in road games after a combined score of 215 points or more 3 straight games this season. Portland is 4-12 ATS in home games after a combined score of 215 points or more over two straight games this season.
From the predictive side of my machine learning apps, Denver is expected to score at least 115 points in this game. In road games installed as an underdog, the Nuggets have earned a 10-7 SU record and 13-4 ATS record good for 77% winning bets over the last three seasons.

10-UNIT Best Bet on the Philadelphia 76ers minus the points.
The 76ers are a solid 22-13-1 ATS in home games and facing a team that is averaging 112 or more PPG in games played over the last two seasons. Wizards are 18-35 ATS in road tilts after having lost two of their last three games spanning the last three seasons. 76ers are a highly profitable 16-6 ATS in home games coming off an ATS loss and with a total of 220 or more points over the last two seasons.
A lot of negative news out about how poorly he played on the offensive end down the stretch. He did have 15 rebounds and 15 assists BUT did go 0-for-6 from the charity stripe. However, the 76ers are 55-38-2 for 59% following a game in which Ben Simmons made no more than one free throw. The 76ers are 25-14 ATS for 64% winning bets coming off a game in which Ben Simmons scored fewer than 10 points and 16-8 ATS in home games coming off a game in which Ben Simmons scored less than 10 points. 76ers are a remarkable 21-4 ATS for 84% winning bets in home games and coming off a home game in which Ben Simmons had 10 or more assists. Including, 14-1 SU and ATS coming a home game getting at least 10 assists and now his team is at home installed as a favorite of 4.5 to 9.5 points.
My models are predicting that the 76ers will score at least 118 points and make at least 33% of their 3-point shot attempts. In past games, when the 76ers met or exceeded these performance measures, they have earned an outstanding 43-4 SU and 33-14 ATS record good for 71% winning bets over the past three seasons.

4-UNIT Best Bet on the Brooklyn Nets minus the points
The Celtics lost all three games to the Nets this season and none of the losses had the star trio of Harden, Durant, and Irving on the floor at the same time. They will be playing only the ninth game together and have played just 203 total minutes together in games played this season. The Celtics are without their best player in Jaylen Brown and all signals point to a best double-digit win.
Betting on home teams that have posted three consecutive games with a 2.5 or better assist-to-turnover ratio and facing an opponent that has a season-to-date assist-to-turnover ratio below 2.0 has earned an outstanding 18-9-1 ATS record for 67% winning bets over the last three seasons.
The betting lines ikmply a 119-111 Nets win and the predictive models that I have developed over more than two decades see a high probability that the Nets will score at least 117 points in this game. When scoring 117 or more points in home games, the Nets are 40-10 SU, 34-15-1 ATS for 69% winning bets over the last three seasons. When allowing 117 or more points in road games, the Celtics are a horrid 3-26 SU, 4-24-1 ATS for 14% in games played over the last three seasons.

In road games, the Heat are 36-11-1 ATS when scoring 112 or more points spanning the last three seasons and a perfect 4-0 ATS in playoff games.

4-UNIT Best Bet on the Washington Wizards
The Boston Celtics ended the regular season in a deep slump, while the Washington Wizards soared to the finish line. Their paths will converge Tuesday night when the Celtics host the Wizards in the play-in round. The winner will land the No. 7 seed for the Eastern Conference playoffs, while the loser will get another attempt to play their way in on Thursday night.
The Celtics (36-36), who finished seventh in the Eastern Conference, need to raise their level now as they struggled down the stretch with five losses in six games and nine of their past 13. They also lost standout guard Jaylen Brown (wrist) for the rest of the season. He averaged 24.7 points per game and losing Brown's firepower hurts even more when the opponent trots out Bradley Beal and Russell Westbrook as the starting backcourt.
Washington is 18-6 ATS facing teams allowing 111+ points-per-game and 2nd half of this season. Boston is 10-22 ATS in home games facing teams - scoring 111+ points-per-game - 2nd half of the season over the last three seasons.

I am planning on bettig this game with 80% of my normal 4-UNIT best size being placed on Buffalo using the puck line and then 20% amount on the mmoney line. The +1.5 puck line is carrying about -115 vig and the money line is priced with Buffalo at a minimum of +225 money line, currently. If you shop a bit, you will find some +240 lines available.
Here is a terrific bettig angle and system that ahs earned a 42-20 SU record that has averaged a 149 underdog wager, making the $100 bettor a $2,325 profit, and a 29% ROI over the last five seasons. The requirements are to bet on road underdogs that are coming off a win against a divisional foe and now facing a host that is coming off a blowout win of three or more goals. Buffalo is coming off a 6-4 upset win as a +260 underdog over Boston. The Rangers man-handled the Philadelphia Flyers 4-1 in their home win as -165 favorites.
Now, the shocking part of this betting angle is the fact that when these underdogs have beend priced at +200 and greater, they have gone 7-3 SU and averaged a +237 underdog wager for a 131% ROI.

4-Unit Best Bet on the Utah Jazz minus the points.
We are on a double-digit favorite tonight in the NBA action which is rare, but always reinforced by a multitude of facts. I will detail just a few of these facts that support Utah to win this game by at least 18 points.
Minnesota is just 13-26 ATS when facing a strong opponent that is outscoring their opponents by at least three or more points-per-game on the season; 16-27 ATS when facing a team averaging 111 or more PPG (NBA League Average is 111 PPG) this season. Utah is an outstanding 14-3-1 ATS when facing a team with a terrible defensive presence that is allowing opponents to make 48% or more of their shots from the field in games played this season; 21-9 ATS when facing a poor team that has been poutscored by their opponents by at least six PPG on the season.
From the complete analytical research, I am expecting the Jazz to score at least 115 points have the better, and more efficient assist-to-turnover ratio. In past home games in which Utah met or exceeded these performance measures has seen them go on to an outstanding 21-3 ATS record for 88% winning bets over the last three seasons.

The betting line is at pick-em for the game at Madison Square Garden, so simply bet either the line or the money line with the lowest vig. Shop around and you will get a line that is not paying more than -110 vig.
Toronto has suddenly won four consecutive games and are playing at a high level and facing a New York Knicks team that has been white hot, but vulnerable to regression in this matchup.
In this matchup, I think you will see Toronto score at least 110 points and make more 3-pointers than the Knicks. In past road games in which Toronto met or exceeded these measures has seen them go on to earn an outstanding 55-8 SU, and 49-13-1 ATS for 79% winning bets over the past seasons.

4-Unit Best Bet on the New Orleans Pelicans plus the points.
Currently, the betting line has the Pelicans installed as a 1-point underdogs and there is positively no value in betting the money line, unless you are getting even-money or as in the case at Pinnacle (+102). So, if unless you are getting +100 or better money, stick with the 1-point spread.

4% Best Bet on the 76ers -10 points
The 76ers are tied on top of the Eastern Conference standings with the Brooklyn Nets. They have lost 3 consecutive games on two occasions this season and will avert a third such occurrence tonight. They are ending their 6-game road trip and will look to return home with the possibility of Joel Embiid being able to return to the lineup.
Cleveland is 7-19 ATS when facing a winning record team this season. The 76ers are an excellent rebounding team. Cleveland is just 11-30 ATS when facing a team that is outrebounding their opponents by an average 3 or more per game. 76ers head coach Doc Rivers is 53-27 ATS for 67% winning bets in his career following a game in which his team had been outrebounded by 15 or more boards.
From the machine learning applications, we learn that the 76ers are 66-9 SU and 57-17-1 ATS for 77% winning bets when scoring 111 or more points (league scoring average the last three seasons) and having the better assist-to-turnover ratio than their opponent spanning the last three seasons.

LA Dodgers at the Colorado Rockies
This is a very logical bet to be making on opening day. Over the last 15 seasons had you bet on the defending World Series Champion using the run line when favored between -175 and -200., you would have profited and produced a solid 15% ROI. The Dodgers are a juggernaut and added starting pitcher Trevor Bauer at $40 million. They were first in MLB with a 136-run differential in last season’s 60-game sprint and was more than half of their 273 run differential in 2019.
At DraftKings they are lined with a 102.5 wins total and if you are interested in backing the Dodgers, you can get it cheaper at BetMGM, who are offering it at 101.5 wins. I cannot imagine this team with the depth and talent in the starting lineup losing more than 60 games and are more likely to win 110 or more games in the 2021 season.
The Dodgers are 43-13 in day games over the last three seasons and starting pitcher Kershaw is 79-27 in day games for his career.

Philadelphia vs Denver
This is a MONEY LINE Betting System that has posted a losing record of 103-182 for 36% winning money line bets, but has made the $100 bettor a profit of $7,777 over the last 5 seasons.
Bet on road underdogs using the money line that is facing a host, who is outscoring their opponents by a minimum of 3 PPG, and are coming off three consecutive games in which 220 or more points were scored.
If the DOG covered the spread, they the game straight-up 54% of the time.
Let me know if you have any questions and TY for putting it together.
So, I recommend betting this game using 80% of your normal 4% bet size on the spread and then the 20% remaining bet on the money line.
76ers are 18-5-1 ATS when facing a solid shooting team making at least 46.5% of their shots in game splayed this season. They are also 19-10-2 ATS when facing teams that are averaging 110 or more PPG this season. Since February 21, the 76ers are 11-1 in this role.

I am betting Houston at +500 to win the Championship. I also betting USC at +1400 to win the Championship as an alternative sprinkle of USC using the money line in this game. Far more bang for the buck doing it this way.
Following game number 15 of the regular season, betting on Neutral court UNDERDOGS that are good defensive teams allowing 63-67 PPG and now facing an elite offensive team scoring at least 77 PPG and coming off a win by 15 or more points has earned a 24-5 ATS record good for 83% winning bets over the last five seasons.

I plan to bet this game on the Hawks with 85% of my 4% bet size on the line and then 15% of my 4% bet size on the money line.
These two teams last played in Atlanta, who defeated Denver 123-115 as 2.5-point home underdogs. Denver is 2-10 ATS revenging a road loss this season. They are also just 3-12 ATS in home games after scoring 100 or more points in back-to-back games spanning the past two seasons.
From the machine learning applications, we learn that Atlanta is 47-15 and 46-14- 2 ATS for 77% winning bets, in road games, scoring 111 or more points, and had previously defeated the opponent at home.

Florida State vs Michigan
4% Best Bet on Florida State +2 points or the money line +115 or higher.
I will be playing this bet using the money line and it will be graded on the site as a money line play. The line has drifted to the 2-point price level and if you believe FSU is going to win, then the money line offers better value at +115. If the money line is at +110, for instance, then consider a combination wager of FSU +1.5/+2 points for 50% of your normal 4% bet amount and then another 50% betting the money line at +110.
In the NCAA Tournament action dating back to the 2009 season (2010 March Madness), betting on underdogs of four or fewer points, that have averaged 72 or fewer possessions-per-game, have earned a 138-88-1 ATS record for 61% winning bets. This system has earned the $100 bettor a profit of $4,332 or a highly profitable 18% return-on-investment (ROI). So far in the NCAA Tournament, this system has done well with a 9-5 ATS for 64% winning bets and a nice 24.2 % ROI.
FSU is 21-5-1 ATS when dressed as an underdog of six or fewer points dating back to the 2005 season. FSU head coach Hamilton relishes this underdog role sporting a 12-3 ATS record playing on neutral courts as an underdog of three or fewer points and 19-4 ATS as an underdog of six or fewer points.

Sweet 16 Round
9:55 PM EST, March 27, 2021
4% Best Bet on Syracuse +6.5 points
I like a red-hot Syracuse team that once again is proving the nay-sayers wrong. Jim Boeheim is one of the best coaches All-Time and has the Syracuse 2-3 zone defense holding their first two opponents to less than 36% shooting. Even though, Houston has had many days to prepare for this defense, facing it in a LIVE game is far more different than studying game films.
Houston is certainly an elite team, but in order to attack a 2-3 zone, an offense needs a strong post presence. Houston does not have that strong scoring threat in the post, and I see Syracuse doing a great job contesting every 3-point shot attempt.
Boeheim is 10-1 ATS when his teams have been seeded 9 through 12 in the NCAA Tournament. Houston is 1-9 ATS in games away from home following a low-scoring game in which 125 or fewer points were scored spanning the last three seasons.

Portland vs Orlando
Let’s start with a highly profitable betting system that supports making a bet on Portland. The system has earned a 78-20 SU record and 65-31-2 ATS mark good for 68% winning bets over the past 25 seasons. The requirements are to bet on road favorites of 3.5 or more points that are coming off back-to-back games in which they allowed 100 or more points and are now facing a host that is coming off a win of three or fewer points. Plus, if the host has lost 65% or more of their games, then the record improves to 25-10-1 ATS for 70% winning bets.
The last time Orlando played Portland ended with a 106-97 road and ATS loss on February 9. Orlando is just 10-31 ATS revenging a road loss in games played over the last two seasons.
From the machine learning applications, we learn that Portland is a highly profitable 33-9 SU and 31-9-2 ATS for 78% winning bets when scoring 111 or more points and having the better assists-to-turnover ratio in road games played over the last five seasons.

Dallas vs Minnesota
Dallas is beginning to look like the playoff-bound team I thought they would be before the season started. Doncic is averaging career-highs scoring 29 PPG and adding 9.2 assists-per-game. However, it has been their improved defense recently that has driven to their 22-19 record.
Minnesota is 35-64 ATS when facing an opponent that is averaging at least 18 or more 3-point shot attempts-per-game over the last two seasons and the same record facing opponents that make at least six 3-point shots-per-game.
Betting on road favorites that are coming off a monster win of 20 or more points and facing an opponent that has scored and allowed 100 or more points in each of their last three games has earned a 46-19-2 ATS record for 71% winning bets over the last five seasons, is 7-3 in the 2020 season, and has gone 4-1 ATS in March.
