Minnesota Vikings vs. Baltimore Ravens Week 14 NFL Betting Pick: December 8th 2013

Art Aronson - Week 14 NFL PickWeek 14 NFL Picks: December 8th 2013
Minnesota Vikings vs. Baltimore Ravens
Betting Pick: Baltimore -6.5 -110 odds

The Minnesota Vikings sit at 3-8 SU and 6-6 ATS after a 23-20 win over the Chicago Bears in OT at home. Adrian Peterson had 211 yards rushing while Matt Cassel threw for 243 yards and a TD. Greg Jennings had 78 yards and one TD as the top receiving option. The Baltimore Ravens come off a hard fought 22-20 win at home over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thanksgiving. Joe Flacco completed 24 of 35 passes for 251 yards and one TD. Torrey Smith had 93 yards receiving on six receptions, including a TD score. Justin Tucker kicked five FG’s in this game. Lost in the Mike Tomlin controversy is the fact that the Ravens have been playing some good football and especially at home. Baltimore has won three straight home games and is now 4-1 ATS in friendly confines. The Vikings have admittedly played better of late but the team is still just 0-5 SU on the road. Don’t over think this one and lay the points with the home team Ravens while expecting them to cover the spread along the way.

Central Florida vs. Florida Atlantic Basketball Odds & Pick from Teddy Covers: December 3rd 2013

Teddy Covers - College Basketball PickCentral Florida vs. Florida Atlantic
College Basketball Prediction: Central Florida -6.5

There’s money to be made every year betting against some of the very worst D-1 basketball teams, particularly at home, where their home court advantage is minimal in front of half empty arenas with lethargic crowds.

Florida Atlantic certainly has the feel of a true ‘bottom feeder’ these days, riding an ugly six game skid into tonight’s matchup against UCF. The Owls drew only 1330 fans for their last home game, a loss to unlined St Francis picked to finish ninth in the Northeastern Conference this year. And Mike Jarvis simply doesn’t have the talent on his roster to engineer a turnaround any time soon.

UCF got blitzkrieged at Valparaiso in their last game, as the Crusaders shot 54% from the floor and 82% from the free throw line. But this team was good enough to win SU at Miami as underdogs in their previous contest; expected to be competitive in the new AAC conference this year. And the Knight’s senior backcourt duo of Isaiah Sykes and Calvin Newell will be the two most talented players on the floor here, exactly what I want when supporting a road favorite. Take UCF.

Texas Tech vs. Arizona Basketball Betting Odds & Pick from Jack Jones: December 3rd 2013

Texas Tech vs. Arizona
Prediction: Texas Tech +18 -110 odds

This is a huge letdown spot for the Arizona Wildcats. They just won the NIT Season Tip-Off title with a win over then-No. 6 Duke by a final of 72-66 on Friday. The Wildcats have now moved up to the No. 2 team in the country, and they are starting to feel good about themselves.

“We’re an all-around team. Really you could see it in the box score,” Tournament MVP Nick Johnson said. “We’re a good team and we can play with anybody.”

While Arizona is on the national radar, Texas Tech certainly is not. However, head coach Tubby Smith has done a solid job with this team, leading the Red Raiders to a 6-2 start with their only losses coming on the road against very good Alabama and Pittsburgh teams.

Smith returned four starters and six of the top seven scorers from last season. Jay Crockett (14.5 ppg, 7.2 rpg), Jordan Tolbert (13.4 ppg, 6.8 rpg) and Robert Turner (11.4 ppg) have led the way in the early going for the Red Raiders.

Plays against favorites of 10 to 19.5 points (ARIZONA) – after having covered four or five of their last six against the spread, undefeated on the season are 30-10 (75%) ATS over the past five seasons. The Red Raiders are 4-1 ATS in their last five non-conference games. Bet Texas Tech Tuesday.

Denver Nuggets vs. Brooklyn Nets NBA Betting Pick from Steve Janus: December 3rd 2013

Steve Janus - NBA PickDenver Nuggets vs. Brooklyn Nets
NBA Betting Pick: Denver -4.5 -110 odds (December 3rd 2013)

The Nets have been one of the biggest disappointments so far this season and I think this is a good spot to fade Brooklyn off a misleading 97-88 road win over Memphis. The Grizzlies were without both Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph, which are arguably their two most important players. Denver on the other hand is a team on a mission right now. The Nuggets have won six straight, including three impressive road wins over the Mavericks, Timberwolves and Raptors.

While I could see Denver wearing down towards the end of their 6-game road trip, I look for them come out strong tonight. This will be just the second game in four nights for the Nuggets.

Another huge key here is not only do I like fading the Nets off that big win, but this is also a huge look ahead spot for Brooklyn with a home game against the Knicks on deck this Thursday on TNT. BET THE NUGGETS -4.5!

Indiana Hoosiers vs. Syracuse Orange Betting Odds & Pick from Jimmy Boyd: December 3rd 2013

Jimmy Boyd - College Basketball PickIndiana Hoosiers vs. Syracuse Orange
Betting Pick: Indiana +6.5 -110 odds (December 3rd 2013)

Syracuse has played well this season, but Indiana has not been getting as much credit as they deserve from the oddsmakers. The Hoosiers have quietly posted a 6-1 record, and they are 5-1 against the spread. They have had no problem scoring baskets this season, averaging 86.4 points per game. When playing on the road their scoring average only takes a small dip down to 80 points per game while the Orange are averaging 74 points at home this year.

The 2-3 zone defense run by Syracuse will not be something new to the Hoosiers. These teams met last season, and while the Orange won that game, this year’s Hoosiers team is built to defeat the zone. They are not a team that has to rely heavily on their inside game like last year, and they have been shooting 47 percent from the field in road games this season. Indiana’s only loss this season came on the road in a neutral court battle with UConn. That loss was by a single point, so I am confident they can cover a 6.5 point line against Syracuse in this game.

Week 14 NFL Picks: Rams vs. Cardinals Prediction from Nick Parsons: December 8th 2013

Nick Parsons - Week 14 NFL PickWeek 14 NFL Picks: December 8th 2013
St. Louis Rams vs. Arizona Cardinals
Prediction: Under 41.5 -110 odds

Divisional contests are always the toughest and almost always “mean more” to the home side.

Arizona will be looking to bounce-back from a 24-21 loss in Philadelphia last week and to avenge its opening day 27-24 setback at St. Louis to start the season.

Despite that higher-scoring affair, note that eight of these teams last 11 in the series have fallen below the posted number, which includes having seen it go “under” in four of their last five in St. Louis.

The Rams aren’t 100% mathematically eliminated from the NFC Wild Card race, but last week’s 23-13 loss in San Francisco obviously didn’t help. Another setback to a divisional foe will be the nail in the coffin. The Rams have dropped four of their last six, totalling a mere 58 points in the losses.

Last week’s effort aside, the Cardinals have looked much better defensively, allowing just 25 total points in their two previous victories.

A “chess match” style of game, where field position becomes critical; I believe the writing is on the wall and all signs point to a lower-scoring contest.

Consider a second look at the “under” in this one. If you found this week 14 NFL pick from Nick Parsons useful, be sure to purchase his premium picks package on Sunday at
