In the National Basketball Association, out of the Western Conference, the Minnesota Timberwolves and Los Angeles Lakers will meet for their first game of the new season. These were the worst two teams in the Western Conference a season ago, with a combined 37 wins between the two. The Minnesota Timberwolves will play their first game despite losing their head coach Flip Saunders, as he passed away from cancer at the age of 60.
For the Lakers, they will look to bounce back from winning just 12 games at the Staples Center a season ago. When Kobe Bryant makes the start for the Lakers, he will break a record for the longest tenure with the same team. He is breaking John Stockton’s record.
Betting the Lakers is the Wise Choice
You are not going to get a healthier Kobe Bryant than you are at the beginning of the season. While, Kobe may not be at the top of his health, the season opener has him ready to go. The young Timberwolves team feels like they are going to be much improved, and contend for a postseason spot out of the West. It’ll be tough, due to how tough the West will be this season. But Andrew Wiggins, along with Karl Anthony Towns should be a nice rookie/sophomore punch.
In saying all of that, look for the young Timberwolves to struggle late under the Staples Center crowd. Kobe Bryant will like having a healthy Julius Randle, and the rookie De’Angelo Russell is going to be an exceptional player for Los Angeles. The Lakers will win this game at home, and get off to a good start for the 2015 – 2016 season. The Los Angeles Lakers -3.5 over the Minnesota Timberwolves is the bet to make in this game.
There will be Plenty of Scoring in this Game
The Minnesota Timberwolves and Los Angeles Lakers were among two of the worst defensive teams a season ago. We know the Lakers are going to want to score points. Kobe Bryant never found a shot he did not like. Los Angeles also sees De’Angelo Russell, the rookie from Ohio State with the ability to score. The Lakers will welcome back Julius Randle back. Randle got hurt in the first game of the season a year ago. Los Angeles also will see Swaggy P, Nick Young come off the bench and fill up the score card.
For Minnesota, we talked about Andrew Wiggins and Anthony-Towns, but point guard Ricky Rubio and the power forward Kevin Garnett will look to push the basketball up the floor. The total for this game is just above 200, and we look for it to go over. 202.5 is not enough points for these two teams. The last time these two played at the end of the season a year ago, they combined 204 points. We suggest the OVER 202.5 for the Los Angeles Lakers and Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday.
Try Another Method of Betting
Why not give the 1st quarter bet a try? The Los Angeles Lakers are going to be ready for this game at home. You can count on that. Now, many would say, Minnesota with their young nucleus will have a ton of energy, which could be true, but the Lakers will get off to a great start in this game.
Look at taking the 1st quarter bet in this game. All the Lakers have to do is win the first quarter by a point. Our bet for this is the Los Angeles Lakers -0.5 in the 1Q of the game against Minnesota on Wednesday.
Two NFC teams will get together on Sunday Night Football. The Philadelphia Eagles, who are tied for first place in the NFC East will try to be the first team to down the Carolina Panthers. The Eagles beat the New York Giants on Monday Night Football to move to 3-3 on the season.
For Carolina, they are coming off their road win at the Seattle Seahawks last week. Carolina on the season holds a 5-0 record. The Panthers are playing their first of three straight home games, with Indianapolis and Green Bay coming to town next.
Cam Newton Guides Unbeaten Offense
Cam Newton continues to be the driving force for the 5-0 Carolina Panthers. Newton has thrown for more than 1,075 yards and 8 touchdowns on the season. The Panthers have used tight end Greg Olsen for 24 catches, with 3 of them for touchdowns. Ted Ginn Jr also has three touchdown receptions on the season as well. The ground game for Carolina has continued to be solid, as Jonathan Stewart and Cam Newton lead the way.
Stewart has just shy of 300 rushing yards, on 98 carries and 2 touchdowns. Quarterback, Newton leads the team with 3 rushing touchdowns. The Panthers have allowed 22, 23 and 23 points in their last three games. Before that, the Panthers allowed just 26 combined in the first two games.
Philadelphia Wants to get Bradford Going
The Philadelphia Eagles traded Nick Foles for Sam Bradford over the off-season. Foles is the quarterback for the Rams now, while Bradford guides the Eagles offense. The former Oklahoma Sooners star has thrown for over 1,500 yards and 9 touchdowns, but he also has 9 interceptions on the season. The Eagles leading rusher has been Ryan Matthews with 245 yards and 2 touchdowns.
DeMarco Murray, the former Cowboys running back has rushed for 242 yards and 3 touchdowns. Jordan Matthews is the top threat deep for the Eagles offense. Matthews has 36 receptions, 384 yards and a touchdown on the season. Philadelphia is coming off a game against the Giants, in which they allowed a touchdown on the first drive of the game, but no more points after that.
Eagles Keep Momentum Going
The Philadelphia Eagles played well in primetime last week, and look for that to continue this week. Despite this game being on the road in Carolina, expect Bill Davis and his Eagles defense to have their game shoes ready to go in this one. Cam Newton has shown signs of too many turnovers, and that’s what will happen here.
Sam Bradford needs a nice signature win in the beginning of the season, and here it is. The bet here is for the underdog. Take the Philadelphia Eagles +3.5 over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday Night Football.
Two teams that want to get their season going will match up on Sunday afternoon at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The New Orleans Saints are coming off their upset win over the Atlanta Falcons, but are last in the NFC South with a 2-4 record. New Orleans has yet to win a game on the road this season.
For the Indianapolis Colts, they are in first place in the AFC South, but are 3-3 on the season. The Colts are coming off the loss to the New England Patriots last week. Both these teams are familiar with playing in a dome, so it should not make a difference in this game.
Colts Looking to get Back to .500 at Home
The Indianapolis Colts have home losses to the Jets and the Patriots, with their lone win at the dome coming over Jacksonville. The Colts with a win in this one would move back to .500. The Colts have seen quarterback Andrew Luck miss a couple games, and not quite hit his stride. Luck has thrown for nearly 270 yards per game. On the season, the quarterback has 8 touchdowns with 7 interceptions.
The best receiver for the Colts has been T.Y. Hilton, with 33 receptions, 456 yards and a touchdown. Donte Moncrief leads Indianapolis with 4 touchdowns. The Colts running game has not been very good, as Frank Gore is the only guy on the team with a touchdown, he has 3.
Saints Looking to Start Winning Streak
With the Thursday night win over the Atlanta Falcons, the Saints can use this game to start a winning streak. New Orleans lost their first three games of the season, but since won two of their last three. The Saints offense seems to be clicking a little better right now, as Drew Brees is gaining health.
The Saints top threats on offense have been Mark Ingram, with 4 rushing touchdowns, along with Willie Snead, with more than 430 receiving yards. New Orleans will go home and host the New York Giants and Tennessee Titans in their next two games.
Colts Should Roll in This Game
The Indianapolis Colts should blow the doors off the New Orleans Saints. The Saints are coming off a win, and some extra rest, but in the end, New Orleans is not very good. Andrew Luck should have a huge game against a poor Saints defense. Look for the Colts to use Luck to Hilton early and often in this game.
The Saints will struggle to keep up with the Colts offense in this one. The bet for this game is going to be the home team; Indianapolis Colts -4 over the New Orleans Saints.
Out of the Big 12, the Texas Tech Red Raiders will invade Norman Oklahoma to take on the Oklahoma Sooners. The Red Raiders will look to win their third straight, and look to be bowl eligible with their sixth win of the season. Following losses to TCU and Baylor, the Red Raiders have bounced back with wins over Iowa State and Kansas. Texas Tech is playing in their first of two straight games against ranked opponents. Oklahoma is coming off their 55-0 win over the Kansas State Wildcats. The weekend before, the Sooners took an upset loss to the Texas Longhorns. The Sooners are ranked 17th in the nation.
Sooners Offensive Machine
Bob Stoopes and his Oklahoma Sooners are scoring a ton of points in 2015. Baker Mayfield, the starting quarterback for the Sooners is taking on some of his old teammates in this one. Mayfield has tossed for more than 1,800 yards and 19 touchdowns, with just 3 interceptions on the season. The top targets for Mayfield have been Sterling Shepard, with 499 yards and 5 touchdowns. Also, Dede Westbrook has caught 26 passes as well. The running back for the Sooners has been Samaje Perine. Perine has rushed the football 93 times for 420 yards and 3 touchdowns.
Red Raiders Trying to Emerge Near Top of Big 12
The Texas Tech Red Raiders are 2-2 in Big 12 play right now. The Red Raiders are throwing for more than 425 yards per game, and scored 49 points per game. Texas Tech has seen their quarterback Patrick Mahomes II throw for more than 2,600 yards on the season. He has also thrown for 20 touchdowns and 6 interceptions. The run game has been led by DeAndre Washington with 743 yards and 7 touchdowns. Texas Tech’s Jakeem Grant and Devin Lauderdale have combined for more than 1,000 receiving yards on the season.
Bet the Sooners at Home
The Oklahoma Sooners look like they have bounced back from their lone loss of the season. Baker Mayfield is an exceptional quarterback that should have plenty of chances to put the ball into the endzone at home. The Sooners will face a Red Raiders team that gave up 59 points per game in their two losses. This should be a high scoring affair, in which we expect the Oklahoma Sooners to walk away as winners. The bet for this game is the Oklahoma Sooners -14 over the Texas Tech Red Raiders.
One of the best college football games of Week 8 features the Aggies of Texas A+M heading to Oxford to take on the Ole Miss Rebels. The Aggies come into the game ranked #15 in the nation, while Ole Miss remained in the Top 25, at #24.
Both teams are coming off losses last week, as the Aggies lost to Alabama, and the Rebels were upset against the Memphis Tigers. Texas A+M is 5-1 overall and 2-1 in SEC play, while the Ole Miss Rebels come in with a 5-2 record; 2-1 in the SEC.
Rebels Looking to Bounce Back
The Ole Miss Rebels were upset last week on the road at Memphis. They started the season red hot, scoring 76 and 73 in their first two games of the season. Following that, the Rebels have won just three of their last five games, including losing two of their last three overall.
Chad Kelly, the quarterback for the Rebels has thrown over 2,200 yards on the season. He has completed 65% of his passes, for 16 touchdowns, while throwing 7 interceptions. Kelly’s top target has been Laquon Treadwell, who has caught 49 passes for 654 yards and 4 touchdowns.
The rushing threat for the Ole Miss Rebels has been Jaylen Walton, with 331 yards on 58 carries and 3 touchdowns.
Aggies Look to Run Remaining Table
The Texas A+M Aggies took their first loss of the season, but they know their destiny is in their own hands. The Aggies do not play another team ranked in the Top 25 until the final game of the regular season at LSU. Texas A+M knows they are still alive in conference play.
The offense for Texas A+M is using Kyle Allen for over 1,500 yards passing, while Tra Carson is at 476 yards and 4 touchdowns on the ground. The receiving core for Texas A+M has caught 15 touchdowns, with Christian Kirk leading the crew, with 4. The Aggies have a total of 8 guys that have caught touchdown passes on the season.
Betting the Home Team Should be the Way to Go
The Ole Miss Rebels are coming off that loss to Memphis, and they certainly will not want to lose their second straight. The Aggies are ranked 15th following their loss, but Alabama certainly exposed several weaknesses in their armor.
The Rebels should bring the defensive game, and the guess is they will score points at will on an average Texas A+M defense. Look for Laquon Treadwell to have a monster day for the Rebels, as Kelly throws for over 400 yards in this game. The bet here is the Ole Miss Rebels -5 over the Texas A+M Aggies.
It’s Week 7 of the National Football League. We have a game on tap Thursday where both teams are in desperate need of a win. These two teams have a history of being good, but both have fallen off a little bit. This rivalry has been heated over the years, so we should see a fun game.
At Levi Stadium, the Seattle Seahawks will take on the San Francisco 49ers. Both teams come into the game with a 2-4 record, as the Seahawks have dropped two straight games. Seattle is coming off a home loss to the Carolina Panthers. For San Francisco, after dropping four straight games, they downed Baltimore at home last week.
49ers Need big Game Behind Center
The San Francisco 49ers, under the leadership of first year head coach Jim Tomsula need solid play from their quarterback. Colin Kaepernick has been up and down all season, throwing 6 touchdowns and 5 interceptions on the season. Kaepernick’s top target Anquan Boldin has 28 receptions for 2 touchdowns.
The running game for San Francisco has seen Carlos Hyde rush the football 104 times for more than 425 yards and 3 touchdowns. The 49ers also have veteran Torrey Smith, who has caught 14 passes for 2 touchdowns on the season. San Francisco will play their next game at the St. Louis Rams.
Seattle have their Backs to the Wall
The Seattle Seahawks definitely have their back to the wall in this one. Russell Wilson, the quarterback of the Seahawks has thrown 7 touchdowns and 3 interceptions on the season. Wilson’s top target still is Jimmy Graham, but he has just over 4 receptions per game. Graham has not caught a touchdown pass in his last three games.
Thomas Rawls and Marshawn Lynch have combined for 585 yards and just a single touchdown on the season. Seattle is playing their first of two straight road games. Next week, the Seahawks will play at the Dallas Cowboys. The following game for Seattle will be at home against the divisional leading Arizona Cardinals.
Seattle Wins on the Road
Pete Carroll and the Seattle Seahawks are the back to back NFC West champions. They are also back to back NFC Champions as well. Look for the Seahawks to be ready to go in this game. They do not want to take their fifth loss and fall another game back of the Arizona Cardinals in the division.
The offense is going to have to get their prized tight end Jimmy Graham going, and I expect that to happen. Running back Marshawn Lynch seems to be more healthy than he was last week, so he should have a nice day. In this game, the Seattle Seahawks -6 over the San Francisco 49ers is the pick!
In a huge Big 12 tilt in Manhattan Kansas, the Texas Christian Horned Frogs will take on the Kansas State Wildcats. The Horned Frogs come into the game ranked #2 in all of college football. The Horned Frogs come into the game with a 5-0 record. TCU has scored 50 or more points in their last four games, including 55 at Texas Tech and 50 in the home win over the Texas Longhorns.
For Kansas State, they are looking to bounce back from their first loss of the season. After wins over South Dakota, Texas San Antonio and Louisiana Tech, the Wildcats lost last week to the Oklahoma State Cowboys. The Wildcats are in a stretch of playing four ranked opponents in five games. Here is the Texas Christian Kansas State pick.

Wildcats Seeking to Spring Home Upset
The Kansas State Wildcats certainly are the home underdog in this game. The Wildcats would love an opportunity to knock Gary Patterson and the Horned Frogs from the ranks of unbeaten. Kansas State is led by 76 year old head coach Gary Snyder. The Wildcats quarterback, Joe Hubener has only completed 51.3% of his passes this season, and has just four touchdowns on the season.
Hubener has also rushed the football the second most on the team; with 38 carries, and 113 yards, with 2 touchdowns. Kansas State’s leading touchdown guy has been Winston Dimel, with 3, on 19 carries. The Wildcats Deante Burton and Kody Cook lead a group of receivers with 2 touchdowns.
Horned Frogs keep Loading Up
The Horned Frogs just keep loading up season after season with offensive talent. The TCU offense has weapons all across the board. When you talk about the Horned Frogs offense, the name Trevone Boykin is the most prominent. The quarterback has been sensational, with 1,802 passing yards, and 19 touchdowns. Boykin has thrown for just 3 interceptions on 188 attempts this season.
The receiving core for TCU is loaded. The top receiver has been Josh Doctson, with 42 catches, 722 yards and 8 touchdowns. Last week, KaVontae Turpin caught 3 touchdown passes, and on the season, he has 6. The Horned Frogs top rusher has been Aaron Green, with 87 carries, 504 yards and 6 touchdowns.
Look for a Thriller in Manhattan
This game has the potential to be ugly for the Kansas State Wildcats. They are not nearly as fast as the Horned Frogs are, but Bill Snyder will have a game plan. Snyder certainly knows how to coach, and will have a chip on his shoulder following the loss last week.
Look for the Wildcats to keep the score down, from what the Horned Frogs are compared to. While they may not win the game, Kansas State is going to give quite the effort in this one. The TCU Kansas State pick for Saturday night is the Kansas State Wildcats +9 over the TCU Horned Frogs.
It’s a Pac-12 battle on Saturday evening at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City, Utah. The California Bears will take on the Utah Utes. The California Golden Bears come into the game ranked 23rd in the country. California has five straight wins to start the season. The most recent win for California was 34-28 at home over the Washington State Cougars.
The Golden Bears also have wins over Texas and Washington thus far. For Utah, they come into this game ranked #5 in the latest Associated Press poll. For the Utes, this is their second game in a row against a ranked opponent. Before taking last weekend off, the Utes were 63-20 winners over the Oregon Ducks. Here is the California Utah pick.

Utes lone Pac-12 South Unbeaten Team
The Utah Utes are the only team left in the Pac-12 South without a loss. The Utes have won games with their offense, and also games with their defense. Utah is scoring 38 points per game, while they are allowing 18.8 per game. The offense for the Utes is anchored by quarterback Travis Wilson.
Wilson has completed 51 of 75 passes for 513 yards and 4 touchdowns. The top receiver for the Utes has been Britain Covey. Covey has 17 receptions on the season, with 182 yards and 2 touchdowns. Utah’s run game is anchored by Devontae Booker. Booker has rushed the football 106 times, for 443 yards and 4 touchdowns. Quarterback Travis Wilson also has three touchdowns on the ground this season.
Bears Facing Toughest Test of Young Season
The California Golden Bears are certainly seeing their toughest test of the season. This is the first of three straight games against ranked opponents. Following this game, California sees UCLA, USC and then the Oregon Ducks. The Golden Bears are led by one of the best quarterbacks in the nation. Jared Goff has been fantastic behind center, completing 125 of 178 passes for 1,630 yards and 15 touchdowns.
Goff has also thrown 4 interceptions on the season. The top target for Goff has been Kenny Lawler. Lawler has 27 receptions, for 399 yards and a team high 8 touchdowns. The Bears have also rushed for an additional 847 yards on the season.
Look for a Competitive Affair on Saturday
The Utah Utes are really good, and will certainly be tough to beat at home. In saying that, the California Golden Bears are not going to be scared coming into this game. Jared Goff has a ton of poise, and that will help their cause on the road.
California will likely want to push the tempo of the game, while the Utes are a team that will be able to adjust either way. California will have to take care of the football, if they want any chance to win this game. The California Utah pick for Saturday night is the California Golden Bears +7.5.
It’s time to start talking about Week 6 of the NCAA Football season. The season has been flying, and we have a pair of Big Ten teams getting together in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The Northwestern Wildcats will put their unbeaten record on the line, as they take on the Michigan Wolverines.
The Wildcats are coming off a 27-0 thrashing over the Minnesota Golden Gophers last weekend. Michigan is also coming off an impressive shut-out over Maryland. Michigan is part of the Big Ten – East Division, while the Wildcats are in the West Division. Here is our Northwestern Michigan NCAA Week 6 pick.
Michigan one of Top Defensive Teams in Country
The Michigan Wolverines are allowing just 7.6 points per game. Since the loss to Utah, the Wolverines have allowed just 14 points in 2 games. The Wolverines have shut their last two opponents out. Michigan’s offense is a run first attack. The running back that gets most of the load is De’Veon Smith. Smith has carried the football 69 times for 331 yards and 4 touchdowns.
He is also getting help from Ty Isaac, with just under 200 yards. The Wolverines passing game has seen quarterback Jake Rudock and receiver hook up 23 times, for 269 yards and 2 touchdowns. Michigan has 12 rushing touchdowns, and 5 receiving touchdowns on the season. Following this game, the Wolverines host Michigan State next week.
Northwestern moves to #13 in the AP Poll
The Northwestern Wildcats have moved to #13 in the latest Associated Press poll. The Wildcats were unranked to start the season, but downed Stanford in the season opener. Following that, Northwestern beat Eastern Illinois, Duke, Ball State and Minnesota. While Michigan comes in as the second best defense in the country, the Wildcats are ahead of them. Northwestern is allowing just 7 points per game.
The Wildcats have two shutouts on the season, and haven’t allowed more than 19 per game yet. Offensively, Northwestern is led by quarterback Clayton Thorson. Thorson has passed for just 4 touchdowns on the season. The Wildcats offense tickets with the run game. Northwestern has over 1,200 total rushing yards and 7 touchdowns on the season.
Bet the Road Team in this Big Ten Clash
The Big Ten is extremely competitive in 2015. The Ohio State Buckeyes and Michigan State Spartans are both ranked inside the Top 5, and seem to be national title contenders. Outside of that, the Big Ten has some really talented teams, especially on the defensive side. The Northwestern Wildcats have been one of the biggest surprises in all of college football.
For Michigan, Coach Harbaugh has his team playing about as well as anyone in the nation. It’s hard to predict that this game will be a blow-out. The Northwestern Wildcats are too good to get blown out. While Michigan wins this game, our Northwestern Michigan Week 6 pick is the Northwestern Wildcats +8.

Oakland +4 @ Cleveland
Pittsburgh +1 @ St. Louis (how is this still a game?)
Denver @ Detroit +3
Atlanta @ Dallas +1.5 (I know all about the QB situation)
Cincinnati +2.5 @ Baltimore ( my bet of least confidence)
Philadelphia @ New York Jets -1
My bets are in BOLD.
Three Bet Limit is back at it with some good bets this week!
Tennessee Volunteers @ Florida Gators
Folks are all over Tennessee in this one and are bringing their money to the table. Florida hasn’t lost to the Volunteers since 2004 and this won’t be any different. Coach Butch Jones hasn’t won the big one yet for Tennessee.
The Volunteers are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games following a S.U. win and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games on grass. The Gators are 5-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 6-14 ATS in their last 20 home games. The Volunteers are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
With the Gators defense and help from the home crowd, the Gators find a way to win this football game.
TBL Choice: Florida +1.5
UCLA @ Arizona
College Gameday will be on hand and the atmosphere will be chaotic. This is the biggest game they have had in Arizona in many years. UCLA is coming off a win against BYU that they could have lost and Arizona is a scoring team. Myles Jack is out on the defensive side for UCLA.
Look for Arizona to in this game.
TBL Choice: Arizona +3
Mississippi State @ Auburn
At the start of the season I was touting Auburn as the National Champions and they have not came close to looking like the team I thought they would be. Now Auburn is using a different quarterback and that doesn’t bode well for them. The Bulldogs played LSU much better than the Tigers.
I will take another dog with Mississippi State to cover and win.
The Bulldogs are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games in September and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Tigers are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games in September and 1-10 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The home team is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings.
TBL Choice: Mississippi State +2
