Sports Plays of the Day 12-20

Sports Plays of the Day

After going 6-4-1 yesterday my figure is now at plus 700. The NFL season is winding down and the College Basketball season is trying to navigate around the pandemic. The College Football playoff teams are about to be announced and my picks are 1 Alabama 2. Clemson 3. Ohio State 4. Notre Dame. As for today’s Sports Plays I have 10 of them.

NFL

I Like the Vikings because I need them to win and the Bears to lose for season over under totals. Lol. But the Bears were over rated from the start of the season and I like the Vikings to win a home game laying three points.

With or without Matthew Stafford the Titans will win this one easily on the back of Derrick Henry. Lay the 9.5 points on Tennessee.

The Jets are trying to lose every game. The Rams need to keep winning. Lay the large point spread of 17 points on the Rams.

Despite the return of Drew Brees the Saints are beat up without Michael Thomas. Take the Chiefs laying the three points.

The Bucs need a win here and can’t mess around with a bad team. Take the Bucs and lay the 6.5 points.

The Dolphins get back on track with a win at home over the Patriots. Lay the 1.5 on the Dolphins

The Niners have done a pretty good job trying to get back on track despite dealing with a lot of injuries. Lay the 4 points on the Niners over the Cowboys.

 

NCAA Basketball

I like Weber State laying 4.5 against Portland State

Take UT Martin laying 4 points against Western Illinois

Xavier is a real good team. Lay the 2.5 over Marquette.

Sports Plays of the Day 12-19 Revised

Sports Plays of the Day

After going 2-0 on Monday night my figure has improved to plus 500. As college football is winding down I have 9 sports plays today.

I have to add the two NFL games for today.

NFL

The Bills are coming off a huge win over the Steelers but the Dolphins are on their heels. I like the Bills to cover the 5.5 points in Denver.

You never know what Packer team will show up. The spread is high at 8 points but the Packers are at home and the Panthers are finishing up a bad season without CMC. Take the Packers at home.

NCAA FOOTBALL

Ohio State may feel like they have to blow out Northwestern to make a statement. I think this will be a closer game than most think. I like the Wildcats getting 18.5 points.

Tough game here and it’s a rematch. Both teams have playoff aspirations. I don’t think either of them get in. Iowa State won the first game but I like Oklahoma in the second one. I am laying the 6 on the Sooners.

It’s been a great year for the Bearcats. Tulsa is a damn good team though. I like the over in this game of 44.5.

The Gators loss last week took  a lot of shine off this game. Should Florida upset Alabama do they get in with 2 losses despite being the SEC Champion? What does that mean for the Crimson Tide. Florida can score points which is good because they are going to need to if they want to stay in this game. I like Florida as a back door cover getting 15.5 points.

The game the world will be watching. This game has all sorts of playoff implications. Does Notre Dame still make the playoffs if they lose a close game to Clemson? This is a rematch game with the Irish winning as classic one last month. But Clemson has Trevor Lawrence back for this game and the spread shows it. I like the Irish getting the 10 points.

NCAA BASKETBALL

Take Citadel getting 3.5 points at Longwood.

Elon is getting 6.5 points at home vs UNCG. Take the Phoenix getting the points.

I like South Alabama laying the 8.5 points against Alabama A&M

Take the Gaels of Saint Mary to beat the Colorado State Rams. I am laying the 5.5 points.

Sports Plays of the Day

After going 8-4 yesterday my figure rose to plus 300. I have only two sports plays for today.

The Steelers mini skid has put the Browns back into the AFC North Division discussion. This will be a tough game. I like the Browns team over of 20.5.

I like Pacific laying 3.5 against San Diego.

Sports Plays of the Day 12-13

Sports Plays of the Day

After going 5-5 yesterday my figure remains at minus 100. I have 12 Sports Plays today with 10 of them coming in NFL action. This is a difficult Sunday to pick with a lot of large spreads and teams trying to solidify playoff spots. I like a lot of overs today taking 5 team overs and 2 game overs overall.

NFL

Although I think the Bucs will win this game I like the Vikings team over of 23 points.

I never ever pick the Jets but I like their team over today of 16.5. Offensively they have played better as of late and despite the Seahawks wanting to have a strong game after losing last week, I don’t like their defense at all.

Washington

Washington is a team that always seems to be in every game and just won’t go away. I like their team over of 20.5 against San Francisco playing in Arizona.

This is a two prong pick. I think Jalen Hurts will present some problems for teams especially this early in his career and the Saints are due for a loss or bad game. Usually these running backs string together a few good games before they get slowed down. I like the Eagles team over of 16.5

The last of my team overs is the Packers. Green Bay is playing this game indoors against a bad Lions defense that despite winning last week they gave up a lot of points. Take the team over for the Packers of 32.5 points.

I have two game overs and this is my first one. The Falcons don’t play defense and both teams can score. I like the over of 49.

This game just looks like a shoot out between two teams that need to win today. I like the over of 52.5

You never know which Chiefs team will show up. It could be the team that dominates their opponents or it could be the one that wins but plays in a close game. The Dolphins are an up and coming team and are playing at home getting 7 points. I like the Dolphins.

This is a back to basics game for the Titans. Jags have played better as Doug Marrone is coaching for his job. But too much Derrick Henry today. Lay the 9 with the Titans

I would feel better picking the Bills if the Steelers were still undefeated but I do like the Bills at home today laying 2.5 points.

NCAA Basketball

Winthrop killed SC Upstate yesterday which I correctly picked. Today is the rematch and nothing will change except I am now laying 13 instead of 10. Take Winthrop.

Take Jacksonville State laying 3 points against Tennessee Tech

Sports Plays of the Day 12-12

Sports Plays of the Day

After going 3-6 last Sunday my figure is in the red again at minus 100. Today’s sports plays are all on the college level with 5 plays on football and 5 plays on basketball. Covid-19 is still causing havoc on the sports world especially in college sports.

NCAA FOOTBALL

Rutgers is a little better this season under the returning Greg Schiano. But it is still same old stuff with the Knights. I like Maryland at home laying the 6.5.

Northwestern

Northwestern lost a tough game last week. Today Illinois pays the price for that. I like the Wildcats laying 13.5 at home vs Illinois.

Coastal Carolina had their biggest win in history last week against BYU. Troy is a pretty good team but still take the Chantieleers laying the 13.5 points.

Baylor has had a tough season with a new coach. I like Oklahoma State laying 6 at Baylor.

RIce shockingly defeated Marshall last week. But I still like UAB today. Take the Blazers laying 7 against the Owls.

NCAA BASKETBALL

I like Bryant laying the 5.5 points against Stony Brook

Take the Blazers laying the 3.5 against ETSU

I like FIU laying 7.5 against North Florida

Take Western Carolina laying 7 points against North Carolina AT&T

I like Winthrop laying 10.5 points against SC Upstate.

Sports Plays of the Day 12-5

Sports Plays of the Day

After going 6-9 last Sunday my figure dropped to plus 100. With this weird College Football season winding down and also College Basketball having so many cancellations it is getting hard to find Sports Plays. But I was able to find 12 for today. 8 in College Football and 4 in College Basketball.

NCAA Football

Ohio State is teetering on not being a part of the College Football Playoffs. With the Big Ten having a rule that you must play in 6 conference games to be eligible for the championship game this has to scare the Buckeyes. Today they play their fifth game and next week OSU is scheduled to play against Michigan which has shut down their sports programs. Should a 5-0 Buckeye team be eligible for the Playoffs?

As for today, I expect the Buckeyes to trounce a bad Michigan State Spartans team. I am laying the 23.5 on OSU.

This is one of those money games for Notre Dame. The Irish have already clinched a spot in the ACC Championship game where a rematch with Clemson awaits. Since this is their last game of the regular season I expect Notre Dame to come out and control the line of scrimmage against an under-manned Syracuse team. Take the Irish laying 33.5 and the over of 50.5.

For Miami, they need to win their last two games and hope for Virginia Tech to upset Clemson to face Notre Dame in the ACC Championship Game. Miami might do their part but the Hokies are facing a tall task. Miami goes into Duke and covers the 14.5 spread.

I like the Oklahoma State team over of 27.5 at TCU.

Kansas is just awful. Texas Tech is not much better. But I still like the Red Raiders laying the 26.5 today at home vs the Jayhawks.

Memphis has a high powered offense. Tulane is not too bad. I like the over of 63.5 in today’s game.

Illinois has had a tough year. So has Iowa. But this is a game where Iowa shows up to flex their muscles. I like the Hawkeyes laying 13.5 on the road.

NCAA BASKETBALL

I like Georgia Southern laying -3 against USC Upstate

 

Take RIce laying 8 against Houston Baptist

Tarleton State is new to Division I and is playing in the WAC Conference. I like Abilene Christian laying the 15 points.

I like Illinois Chicago laying 5.5 against Ball State
