DraftKings NBA Picks – October 19th

Happy Friday everybody. Alex here, and these are my DraftKings picks for October 19th. Tonight, there is nine games to attack. As always, if any of these picks help you win or if you need any advice, let me know on Twitter. @Hunta512.

Top Pick:

PF/C: Anthony Davis: (11,600)

Following a 77 DK point game in the win over The Rockets on Wednesday, AD is now back at home, where he always played better last season. (4.8 more DK PPG) Even though they ran away with it on Wednesday (131-112), Davis still played 39 minutes. The spread is a scarier tonight vs The Kings (NO -10.5), but I think Davis and the rest of The Pelicans starters play 35+ minutes again.

Jazz center Rudy Gobert torched this Kings frontcourt for 44.25 DK points on opening night, bringing this matchup to a 14.43 opponent +/- for Davis. This is only one game of data, but based on opponent +/-, this is the second best matchup for any player on DraftKings tonight. AD should eclipse 60 DK points with ceiling close to 80.

Value Picks:

PG: Elfrid Payton: (5,800)

Sporting a fresh new haircut, Payton flourished in his Pelicans debut, notching a triple double in the road win over The Rockets. (43.5 DK points) He completely took over Rajon Rondo’s role from last season, leading this team with a 27.8% assist rate. The coaches also weren’t shy with giving him a full workload, running him out there for 36.5 minutes. Payton has always been a strong fantasy option (1.1 DK PPM in 2017), but the only problem with rostering him has always been the uncertainty if he would end up playing starter like minutes.

After the impressive first game with the club, in a huge road win, Payton should be in line for a full amount of minutes tonight vs The Kings. With De’Aaron Fox at point, The Kings have struggled at defending PGs and they are the 4th worst ranked defense through one game this season. We can’t expect another triple double, but Payton should exceed five times value, and he is the best point per dollar value this Pelcians has to offer on Friday night. (121.5 implied team total, highest of the slate)

C: Boban Marjanovic: (3,900)

It was unclear how much Boban was actually going to play this season, but Wednesday night, he and starter Marcin Gortat basically split the duties at center vs The Nuggets. (17.5 for Majanonvic and 18 for Gortat) As expected, the human giant that is Boban, smashed with the uptick in minutes, scoring 18 points and eight rebounds off the bench. (27 DK points)

At this point in his career, Gortat isn’t going to play heavy minutes, so I do believe this was a plan by HC Doc Rivers to give Marjanovic a decent amount of playing off the bench. After his showing Wednesday, the minutes should continue tonight vs The Thunder. He nearly scores two DK points a minute (1.98 DK PPM in 2017) and in 10-15 minutes, Boban should score over 20 DK points, with obvious upside.

SF: Cedi Osman: (5,400)

Osman shined as The Cavs’ new starting SF Wednesday night, scoring 17 points, ten rebounds, four assists, and two steals in 33 minutes of work vs The Raptors. (40.5 DK points) He saw a solid 19.2% usage rate and only trailed starting PG George Hill, with a 23.5 assist %. The double double bonus helped, but in this loss, he scored 1.15 DK PPM. I think that will regress to close to 1.0 DK PPM, but either way, this still makes him a strong candidate to get us five times value.

He will be going against The Wolves, who ranked 27th in defensive efficiency last season, and 25th through one game in 2018. The Cavs also struggled on defense in their first game without LeBron (116 points to The Raptors) and this game should be a back and forth contest. (223.5 O/U game total, second highest of the night) Osman should approach 30 DK points and I think his $1,200 price increase will make most DFS players look elsewhere.

Also Consider:

SG/SF: Kawhi Leonard: (8,500)

I don’t like targeting many players in the lowest total of a full slate like this, but Leonard remains underpriced. He scored 43.75 DK points across 37.2 minutes in his first game as a Raptor. The upside is a little limited vs The Celtics (1st in efficiency last season), but Leonard is a safe bet for over 40 DK points.

SF/PF: Aaron Gordon: (8,200)

Gordon flashed in game one, scoring 50.5 DK points in 38 minutes vs The Heat, including 4/5 from beyond the arc. He posted a 25.8% usage rate and he should lead this team in usage on a nightly basis. Tonight, he plays The Hornets, who should be very weak inside without Dwight Howard this season.

SF/PF: Nikola Mirotic: (7,000)

Mirotic picked up right where he left off last season, scoring 51 DK points in 30 minutes vs The Rockets. He hit 6/8 from three and The Kings allowed the second most 3PM PG last season. The price is fair, but Mirotic is a solid mid-tier target, that helps you get more shares of this total.

SF: Caris LaVert: (6,300)

If Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (hip, questionable) is out again, LaVert becomes an excellent target. He started Wednesday and posted a team high 33.8% usage rate vs The Pistons. (40.5 DK points) Plus, he played 34 minutes, which was the most playing time he has received since last January. Tonight, he plays The Knicks, who ranked T1 in pace on opening night.

C: Willie Cauley-Stein: (6,300)

43.75 DK points in 38.25 minutes vs a very stout Jazz defense in game one. If he can avoid foul trouble vs Davis, WCS should play 35+ and put up a double double vs The Pelicans.

SF: Taurean Prince: (6,200)

His usage stayed up after last season, leading the team at 28.1% on Wednesday vs The Knicks. (36 DK points) He only played 32 minutes in this game, but they took the starters out with a few minutes left. This game has a 7.5 point spread tonight vs The Grizzlies and it should be more competitive, hopefully putting Prince over 35 minutes. Including the loss to The Knicks, Prince is averaging 41.5 DK PPG in his past five.

PG: Trae Young: (5,600)

Young isn’t going to lead The Hawks to many wins, but he should a viable fantasy option, due to usage. He saw a 23.7% usage on Wednesday and scored 27.5 DK points, across 33.1 minutes vs The Knicks. If he can improve on shot tonight (5/14 from the field vs The Knicks), he has 30-35 DK point upside vs The Grizzlies.

PG: Shia Gilgeous-Alexandre: (3,800)

The rookie out of Kentucky had a nice first career game, coming off a strong preseason, scoring 22 DK points in 28 minutes off the bench vs The Nuggets. This was 0.78 DK PPM and I think we can expect 25-30 MPG off the bench for the rookie. The ceiling is low, but he should get close to 20 DK points.

Oct 20: West Ham v Tottenham Hotspur Betting Tips

West Ham v Spurs

Premier League. Kick-Off: 3pm, Saturday October 20th.

THINGS are picking up for the Hammers following their awful start to the season. Manuel Pellegrini's men have won seven points from their last four matches including a draw against Chelsea and a win over Man Utd in consecutive home matches at the Olympic Stadium, so they should have little to fear ahead of Spurs trip across London.

West Ham fans' optimism will also be boosted by their recent record against Spurs. They've won three of the last five meetings against Mauricio Pochettino's men. A win for the Hammers could see them climb to 12th.

For Spurs it's a case of hanging on to the coat-tails of their top-five rivals. They currently trail Man City, Liverpool and Chelsea by two points and won't want to be falling any further behind at this stage of the season.

Tottenham go into the game in fine form themselves, having won eight of their last ten league fixtures. The North Londoners have won four out of five on the road in the league this season, their only defeat coming at Watford.

Spurs are odds on to win at 10/11 but more value could be found in the half-time betting markets. Tottenham have opened the scoring in all but one of their eight Premier League matches so far and are 7/5 to be leading at half-time.

Recommended Bets

  • Spurs lead at half-time 7/5 (Bet365)
  • Spurs half-time / full-time 2/1 (Bet365)
  • Bet Builder
    • Half-time Spurs / Full-time Spurs
    • Under 3 goals combined
    • Harry Kane to score
    • Pays 14/1 at Bet365

HullShaker’s Tips: Far travelled in search of goals

NOT in until late so will post this up now and add reasoning if I get away earlier!

Prices are more than fair for goals in both games with an in-form Goias in Brazil and a wildly out of form St Ann's in Trinidad and Tobago!

October 19th, 2018 NHL Betting Tips

Written by Graeme on Friday, October 19th, 2018

Well it was a rather disappointing outing last night in the NHL as we lost 2 units. Makes me VERY happy that we introduced unit sizing last year that’s for damn sure.

Our 1u play was on the New Jersey Devils to win. Like I said yesterday I just wasn’t sold on them yet but I just couldn’t ignore the numbers they were putting up. Both individual and team metrics were looking great.

Not sure what happened with the Leafs yesterday. That’s one of those games I’m going to have to go back and rewatch and really study it as something like that is going to happen quite a few times for the Leafs and assuming the Over or a Leafs win is going to be a popular bet this season, it’s important we figure out what those games are.

Oilers vs Bruins was one of those games that just never got going. Bruins are going to be a hard team to bet this season because you never know what their goaltending is going to bring, and they don’t have the depth. Yet their top guys can beat most of the NHL so it’s going to be interesting.

Still life could be worse – I could be a Blackhawks fan. Holy moley not a good outing with the return of Crawford. So many people were pumped about him. Will be interesting watching them going forward.

I hate to say it but no tips tonight and here’s the reason – I’ve been working on an advanced metrics system based on combining an expected goals model, corsi, PDO & fenwick along with some other data I use. I’ve been basically harvesting data for the last couple of weeks and I spent all day today putting it all together.

However after doing that – it’s made me a bit gun shy in regard to the tips. It’s hard to get on the right mindset as I IMMEDIATELY want to base all of my picks on this system, when in reality I will be using it on the side and tweaking it and improving it as the season goes on. It won’t have any impact on the actual tips for the time being – I just much prefer using a system like this with live data as opposed to historical.

So when I’m sitting here trying to do the tips tonight I just keep thinking back to the system results and it’s putting me off and even contradicting my own thoughts so for my own safety, no tips tonight.

In saying that, here’s thoughts on each game:

Capitals vs Panthers: I’d love to back the Capitals to get out of their funk but they have some issues at the moment especially with 5v5. Panthers are a hard working team who have had 4 very close games. Both their road games have went to OT and when a team isn’t winning it can drive them to fight even harder. I’m leaning towards the Panthers but just can’t pull the trigger. Would prefer a slightly better price.

Stars vs Wild: This is one of those games where my new system was leaning strongly towards the Stars. It still needs more data of course – but essentially it believes the Stars are performing even better at home than results indicate, while the Wild, 0-2 on the road with 4-1 and 4-2 thrashings have actually been overperforming slightly. This was one where it really tainted my thought process on the game. However if you want to make a risk on a new system with nowhere near enough data, go with Stars -1.5 at 3.00 odds. That’s what I’m on because I’m an idiot and love building betting systems ha. I always bet real money and a decent amount on them at this stage as it encourages me to work harder on them.

Flames vs Predators: Coin flip of a game and a very tricky one to call. Honestly this is one where I’d love to take Nashville but Flames thumped Preds last time out in Nashville, are coming in hot after that Bruins performance and I’m not touching it.

OHL / WHL / AHL / KHL / Czech Extraliga Betting Tips:

(All below systems are based mainly on mathematics and statistics with very little human input and are deemed experimental. )

OHL Betting Tips (1-0, 0.77u): 0.5u on Sault Ste Marie Greyhound -1.5 at 1.92.

WHL Betting Tips (4-2, +1.11u): 0.5u on Seattle Thunderbirds incl OT/SO at 1.82.

Where To Bet the Non-NHL Leagues:

Canadians: Bodog and 888 Sports.
Americans: Bovada.
Everyone Else: 888 Sports.

DraftKings College Football Picks – Week 8

Saturday’s main slate of College Football action on DraftKings features 10 games and kicks off at Noon EST. There’s appeal to be found in all 10 matchups that have been selected for the slate, and they run the gamut from what look to be tight defensive battles all the way up to potential shootouts.

A quick look at what the oddsmakers have to say tells us that four of the games feature a projected total of 60 points or more, while just one is below 50 points. That game looks to be an epic one from a classic CFB rivalry, as the Michigan Wolverines visit the Michigan State Spartans in a tilt with a projected total of 41 points.

While there might be some nuggets of value to glean from that game if everything breaks just right, players from that contest won’t be too popular for DFS purposes. That opens up plenty of contrarian possibilities for those who are looking to take a risk, but just be aware that there are safer plays for your lineups.

Here are the four games with high projected totals for your reference.

  • Auburn Tigers @ Ole Miss Rebels, +3.5, 63.5
  • Oklahoma Sooners @ TCU Horned Frogs, +8, 61.5
  • Penn State Nittany Lions @ Indiana Hoosiers, +14.5, 61
  • Memphis Tigers @ Missouri Tigers, -9.5, 73

The battle of the Tigers in Missouri will obviously attract a ton of attention for DFS purposes, and rightfully so, as there are a number of potentially appealing plays on both squads. Let’s take a look at some of the players that we really like at each position for Week 8.

QB: Drew Lock – Missouri Tigers ($9.2k)

When a game has a projected total of 70+ points, the quarterbacks from that contest deserve a spot on your short list. While you can be sure that the signal callers from that contest will be popular and won’t fly under the radar, there are times when you have to put concerns about ownership percentages aside and not worry about it. This is one of those times.

Missouri senior QB Drew Lock is considered to be a solid NFL prospect, but he’s not having the most productive season. That’s not entirely his fault, as the Tigers have struggled to a 3-3 mark. On the year, Lock has thrown for 1,629 yards, 12 TDs, and six picks.

Quite simply, time is running short for him to pad his stats and prove what he’s capable of. This is as good of an opportunity as any for him to do so in a game with such a huge projected total. We’ll look for Lock to deliver one of his finest performances of 2018 on Saturday.

RB: Jonathan Taylor – Wisconsin Badgers ($9.7k)

Jonathan Taylor is going to cost you an arm and a leg, and the fact that he’s been held to 20 fantasy points or less in three of his last four contests makes spending such a hefty amount of cash even less appealing. However, this is what we call a ‘smash spot,’ and the Wisconsin Badgers and Taylor should take full advantage of that.

The Illinois Fighting Illini’ are 3-3 on the year, but the club is just 115th in the nation in terms of total yards allowed. Illinois is giving up an average of 31.5 points per game and 199.5 rushing yards per contest. You don’t suppose one of the nation’s top running backs is looking forward to this matchup, do you?

Taylor is a flat out stud, and opposing defensive coordinators are well aware that they need to gameplan to mitigate the damage he causes. Programs with a wealth of talent can do that, but average schools can not. Look for Taylor to bounce back in big league fashion this week.

RB: Ta’Zhawn Henry – Texas Tech Red Raiders ($5.3k)

Texas Tech and Kansas face off in a game that just misses the 60-point cutoff. The game between the Red Raiders and the Jayhawks has a projected total of 59 points, and you can easily make a case for the Over being the correct call. That being the case, there’s good reason to spend some extra time taking a look at the skill position players from both sides.

That leads us to Ta’Zhawn Henry, a talented back at an affordable price in a good spot to produce. While Kansas has held its own against the pass this season, the team is giving up an average of 177.2 rushing yards per game.

Henry hasn’t been productive for the past three weeks, but the team has abandoned the run in all three contests. We don’t anticipate that will be the case this week, as the Red Raiders may find some difficulty through the air. We’ll take Henry as an affordable RB option with solid upside.

WR: Kavontae Turpin – TCU Horned Frogs ($6.2k)

TCU faces off with Oklahoma in another potential shootout, and fireworks could very well be in the forecast for this one. While both squads have had their moments on defense this season, they can also both pour on the points as needed.

The Horned Frogs have held the offense of their last two opponents thoroughly in check, but they’re going to have a much tougher time turning that trick this week. Sooners QB Kyler Murray is a legitimate Heisman Trophy candidate, and he has a number of explosive weapons at his disposal to boot.
There’s firepower on the TCU side as well, including the speedy Kavontae Turpin, who has posted a line of 24/348/2. He’s coming in off of a big game against Texas Tech, and we’ll look for him to keep the momentum going with another solid outing.

WR: Marquez Callaway – Tennessee Volunteers ($3.4k)

We have a number of high-priced players on our roster so far, so we’re naturally going to have to pick our spots to save some coin. Wide receiver is always a solid spot to look for some intriguing value plays, but there’s naturally more risk the further you go down the salary scale.

There’s plenty of risk here with this selection, but it’s more than just a random dart throw. Alabama is a massive 28.5-point favorite as it hits the road to take on Tennessee, and there’s nothing to suggest that the Volunteers will be the ones to slow the Crimson Tide down.

That said, the hosts are going to complete passes and score points, and there’s a real solid chance they’ll be playing catch-up. Enter Marquez Callaway, the team’s leading receiver by both receptions and yardage. He doesn’t need to do much to pay off his low salary, and he also has some nice upside if the Volunteers put up a solid fight.

WR: Nick Westbrook – Indiana Hoosiers ($4.7k)

The Indiana Hoosiers are also big home underdogs – 14.5 points to Penn State – and the same logic applies. They’ll likely be playing catch-up, and that points to a need for them to be airing it out.

That leads us to Nick Westbrook, who also leads his club in both catches and yardage. Westbrook is averaging just 9.7 points per game, but he put up 24.9 two weeks ago when his club was in a similar spot.

In that one, the Hoosiers were big underdogs to Ohio State and playing come from behind football. Westbrook hauled in five balls for 109 yards and a score. We’ll gladly take similar output at his affordable price point this week.

Flex: Damonte Coxie – Memphis Tigers ($5.6k)

We’re going back to the well of the week’s highest projected total for our flex spot. We’ve also landed on another player who leads his team in receiving categories, but this pass catcher has even more of a dramatic edge over his teammates.

Through seven games, sophomore Damonte Coxie has caught 34 passes for 552 yards and four scores. He’s the leading pass catcher on the team by a wide margin, as he’s a featured part of the Tigers offense. We’ll expect him to be pretty busy if this game turns into a shootout as expected.

Coxie is affordable, sees plenty of targets, and has lots of upside. We’ll take our chances on a play like that any day.

S-Flex: Peyton Bender – Kansas Jayhawks ($5.7k)

Affordable quarterbacks in potential blow-up spots always capture our attention. That’s what we have here in senior QB Peyton Bender, who has officially been given the starting nod for Saturday’s game against Texas Tech.

While Bender hasn’t produced a ton this year – 681 passing yards, six scores, and a pick – he’s another player who is in a position in which his team is projected to be coming from behind. Texas Tech is favored by 18 points, and the team has shown some vulnerability against the pass, as opponents are averaging 299.3 passing yards per game.

Bender is a risky selection, but he’s one who could prove to be quite fruitful at a low price point if this game goes according to script. If we get ourselves an unexpected shootout, he could be a real game changer on the leaderboards.

Thanks for reading. We hope we’ve helped you narrow down your list of targets for this week’s featured slate of CFB DFS on DraftKings. Enjoy the games this weekend and best of luck with your lineups!

Oct 20: Bournemouth v Southampton Betting Tips

Bournemouth v Southampton

Premier League. Kick-Off: 3pm Saturday 20th October.

A SUPERB and in-form Bournemouth side entertain an out of form Southampton as the Premier League returns to the south coast.

Six occasions the sides have met previously in the Premier League with the Saints winning three of those contests. Southampton will look to find hope in those head to head's as they only have one win to their name this season and will be keen to start picking up points as soon as possible.

Bournemouth will be looking to carry their early season form into this one and will fancy their chances of picking up another three points at home. Surprisingly you can still pick up odds against for Eddie Howe's men to register another win. They've scored an impressive 10 goals in 4 at home, winning their last three at home.

There's some key stats to look at for this one from a betting perspective. Bournemouth have scored at least twice at the Vitality in all competitions (6 games). The flip side to that is Southampton have conceded twice in 75% of their away league games.

I firmly believe goals are on the menu but unfortunately for Mark Hughes' men they aren't as strong as their hosts.

Recommended Bets

  • Nap: Bournemouth: Over 1.5 TG (Evens, Betfair)
  • BTTS and over 2.5 goals (21/20, Various)
  • Bournemouth to score 2+ goals, 5+ Bournemouth corners and 20+ Southampton booking points (10/3, SkyBet)
  • Correct Score: 3-1 (16/1, William Hill and Bet365)

Los Angeles Dodgers at Milwaukee Brewers MLB Pick – October 19th

What a great series we have had here in the National League Championship Series. Unlike the American League Championship Series that was devoid of too much drama as the Boston Red Sox won four straight games after dropping game one at home, this series has been action packed! Both teams have won in the other team’s ballpark, and here we are at game six with the Dodgers having the chance to clinch the series tonight in Milwaukee.

In my game five write up, I mentioned that for some reason I thought Clayton Kershaw would exercise his playoff demons and step up for his team in a must-win situation. All the data on Kershaw in the playoffs, specifically late in the playoffs, pointed to Kershaw struggling, but my gut said this guy was going to get the job done. And that is just what happened.

Kershaw threw seven innings of strong ball, allowing just one run on only three hits while striking out nine. If the Dodgers are able to win and advance to back to back World Series, having a healthy Clayton Kershaw pitching at his best is going to be a huge advantage for the boys in blue. Especially if you look at how Boston’s ace, Chris Sale, has been sick and not able to pitch. A prime Kershaw matched up against anybody besides Sale is a big mismatch for Boston.

But I don’t want to get too far ahead of myself as we still have games to play in this series and these Brewers aren’t going to go away without a fight. The Brewers used some trickery in game five as they listed Wade Miley, a lefty, as the starting pitcher, but then immediately pulled him from the game after one batter to instead use Brandon Woodruff, a righty, to actually start the game. This gamble looked like it might pay off as Woodruff was solid through the first several innings and the had the lead heading into the bottom of the fifth inning and were tied heading into the sixth before Woodruff gave up a couple of runs in the sixth that gave the Dodgers the lead for good.

The Brewers will go with Miley on the mound again tonight, and presumably this time he will actually pitch, which should be a good thing for Milwaukee as he has been one of the most reliable starters all season long for the Brewers and has been untouchable in the playoffs so far. The Dodgers will counter with Hyun-Jin Ryu tonight to try and close the series out. The Dodgers are slight -108 road favorites. The game total over-under is set at seven and a half runs. First pitch is scheduled for 5:39 PM PST from Miller Park in Milwaukee.

I was shocked to see the Brewers pull Miley from game five. I can see what they were doing, trying to mess with the Dodgers righty-lefty matchups, but with as good as Miley has been I am not sure he is the decoy they should have used. I would have preferred they used Woodruff as the decoy and Miley as the real starter. Miley has just been too good recently to not give him a shot in a game the Brewers really needed to win.

The Brewers won the last seven games of the regular season where Miley started, and in the playoffs, the guy hasn’t given up a run yet in ten and two-thirds innings pitched. In game two of this series against Los Angeles, Miley threw five and two-thirds shutout innings and allowed just two hits. The Brewers have been quick to go to their bullpen in this series, but I expect them to give Miley at least four or five innings in this one as he is likely the best arm on the squad at this point.

The Dodgers will hope that Hyun-jin Ryu will perform better than he did in game two of this series where he lasted just four and a third innings and gave up two earned runs. It wasn’t that Ryu was all that bad, he just wasn’t nearly as sharp as he was coming into that game. In Ryu’s four previous starts before game two, he pitched a combined twenty-six innings and allowed just one earned run.

The combined game scores through five games for this series? Milwaukee 16 runs, Los Angeles 16 runs. Every game in this series has been tight and has come down to the wire, and I expect more of the same tonight. So, where do I find my value in a series that has been so tightly contested?

The pitching staffs. The Brewers strategy of basically abandoning their starting pitching rotation and using mostly bullpen arms was a major gamble, and after three games in three days in LA, they are glad to have gotten a day off yesterday. I think that Miley will be good again, and if he is not, the Brewers have a finally refreshed bullpen they can call on that has been mostly great in this series after a rough game one.

Ryu will likely match Miley pitch for pitch, and I can see this game being close late into the night much as games four and five were. And when you have close games that could go either way at basically even money, I love to back the home team. Getting that last at-bat is such a big advantage and, in a series, where both teams are worn down after a long, intense series of games, that hometown crowd is going to help get Milwaukee over the hump. I see another close game with the Milwaukee Brewers finding a way to win tonight at home and force a game seven. Give me the Milwaukee Brewers as small home underdogs in this one at -102!

The Bet: Milwaukee Brewers -102

Ohio State vs. Purdue NCAAF Pick – Week 8

On Saturday Night at 7:30 PM EST, viewers on ABC will be looking live at what should be a jam-packed Ross-Ade Stadium in West Lafayette, Indiana. The #2 team in the nation, the Ohio State Buckeyes, will hit the road to take on the Purdue Boilermakers, a 3-3 club that has been playing better than its record indicates.

This is a tricky spot for a Buckeyes squad that has just cemented it’s standing at #2 in the polls in the wake of last week’s results. Its Big Ten rival would like nothing more than to throw a wrench into the team’s College Football Playoff ambitions in front of what should be a raucous crowd for this primetime affair.

Let’s take a look at what both programs bring to the table as we dig into this matchup in depth.

Ohio State @ Purdue, 7:30 PM EST, ABC


  • Ohio State -12 (-115)
  • Purdue +12 (-105)

Money Line:

  • Ohio State -470
  • Purdue +395

Total Points:

  • Over 68 (-125)
  • Under 68 (+105)

Ohio State vs. Purdue pick:

While Ohio State’s 7-0 start has undoubtedly been impressive, it hasn’t been quite as dominant as the club’s record suggests. The Buckeyes have several blowout wins on their 2018 resume, but the team has also been tested several times. Penn State pushed them to the absolute limit a few weeks back, and TCU put up a stout fight earlier in the season.

Even the team’s last two opponents, Indiana and Minnesota, had moments where they shined against a superior team. Nonetheless, the undefeated Buckeyes are cranking along, outscoring opponents by whopping margin of 324-134 thus far, an average of 46.3 to 19.1 points per game. The offense is potent and efficient in both facets, while the defense has been balanced. On the year, the unit has generated 24 sacks, 13 turnovers, and one defensive touchdown.

Sophomore signal caller Dwayne Haskins has emerged as a legitimate Heisman Trophy contender. He has completed 72.3 percent of his passes for 2,331 yards, 28 scores and four picks, with a rushing touchdown added on for good measure. Haskins has an embarrassment of riches at his disposal, including RB J.K. Dobbins and wideout Parris Campbell. Ohio State has next week off before finishing out the season with four straight against other Big Ten foes.

The Boilermakers opened up the season with three consecutive close losses. In total, the three games were decided by six points. The team righted the ship in a big way with an upset victory over Boston College, who had come into that game ranked #23 in the nation, and followed that up with a pair of impressive victories over Nebraska and Illinois.

For the year, Purdue has outscored opponents 201-139, or an average margin of 33.5 to 23.2 points per game. The team has displayed a balanced approach on both offense and defense thus far. Through six games, the defense has produced 17 sacks and eight turnovers.

QB David Blough and RB DJ Knox have been solid, but the star of the show on offense has been standout freshman wideout Rondale Moore. He has hauled in 45 passes for 558 yards and five scores, and added on nine carries for another 139 yards and a touchdown. The dynamic playmaker has four games with 100+ yards receiving on the year.

Blough has thrown for 10 TDs and two picks, while Know has rushed for 540 yards and five scores. Blough’s resume includes three games with three passing touchdowns, while Know has two 150+ rushing performances and a multiple-touchdown game on his. Purdue’s bye week is out of the way, and they’ll be back in action next week against Michigan State.

In the all-time series between these two programs, Ohio State holds a 39-14-2 advantage. This will be their first meeting since 2013, a 56-0 victory for Ohio State. The Buckeyes hold a 7-3 edge straight up for the last ten meetings of these two schools, and a record of 3-7 against the spread over that span. The Over has been the correct call just twice over that timeframe.

Ohio State holds two dominating shutout victories over that span – 56-0 in 2013 and 49-0 in 2010 – but the rest of the games have been relatively close and competitive. The Buckeyes have won the last two in this series, and three of the last four overall. This is the highest projected total (68) in recent meetings, with the previous high mark being 58 in 2012 (the Under came in for that contest).

Ohio State has looked like a true offensive juggernaut this season. Haskins is currently second in the running for the Heisman Trophy in the eyes of oddsmakers. Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa is at the top of the list with odds of -155, followed by Haskins at +225. Oklahoma’s Kyler Murray is currently number three with odds of +250.

If Haskins doesn’t wreck opponents through the air, then the talented duo of Mike Weber and J.K. Dobbins will get it done on the ground. One way or another, the Buckeyes will put up points. The defense is doing a fantastic job of putting pressure on opponents, but other squads have been able to move the ball against the Buckeyes.

As for Purdue, bouncing back from a trio of heartbreaking defeats with three consecutive victories is no small feat. That’s a testament to both coaching and the players, and the Boilermakers could still wind up with a decent record when all is said and done if they continue showing up as they have throughout the 2018 season.

For this game, Ohio State is just too talented to have this game be the one in which it takes its first loss. That said, the Boilermakers are playing really well, and there’s no reason they can’t put quite the scare into visiting Ohio State. In fact, there’s no reason this one can’t remain competitive into the fourth quarter. The Buckeyes win, but this is another game that won’t be easy for them.

We’ll take Purdue plus the points.

Purdue +12

SPL & EPL Betting Tips for October 19th-20th, 2018

Posted: October 19, 2018

Hi everyone,

I’m going to cover some of the games on this weekends English Premier League plate and Scottish Premier League plate.

I don’t normally do soccer tips here however if you’re interested in following my soccer tips, check out my Daily Soccer Betting Tips Website.

I post betting tips there each and every day and cover a wide variety of leagues not just the main ones. Just coming off a big 3u play on Real Salt Lake the other night! They gave the Revolution a good 4-1 thrashing.

EPL Betting Tips:

First up is Chelsea to win. We all know Man Utd have their issues but even if you ignore all that the fact is Chelsea are just a much better and stronger team. It’s at the point where I wanted to go with Chelsea -1 but decided to reel myself in. Man Utd come into this statistically struggling as they can’t stop conceding goals with very poor defensive efforts and Chelsea should take advantage.

I’m also on Bournemouth to win and think we are getting a great price on them. They’re 6th in the league and honestly look like they belong there. If their defense was a bit better they could be looking at Europe.

Southampton however have lost big time three games in a row and I think Bournemouth make it four.

I’m also going with a gut feeling bet on Newcastle to win. If they don’t win here there’s honestly no hope for them.

I believe they win for the first time this season and they are better than their record. They have had a brutal schedule and away against teams on what I believe is the same level as them, they locked in two draws.

At home I believe they have what it takes.

SPL Betting Predictions:

For the record these are generally statistical picks with a combination of team and player stats, and a strong focus on xG, xGA etc.

You can bet the Scottish Premier League here.

First up is Celtic and Hibs to go over 2.5 Goals. I’d said for a few weeks now on BetSoccer.ca that Celtic were due to give someone a hiding and it finally happened with that 6-0 win. I see that continuing. Hibs are a team who rely a lot on long range goals at the moment and I’ve got to think they’ll struggle to get in the Celtic box so will stick with that – which should also add to the tally here.

I’m going with Hearts and Aberdeen to Draw. Aberdeen are pretty solid away while Hearts are hitting their expected rates for goals so I see that continuing. Can see this being a 1-1 or 2-2 match.

I’m also backing Livingston to win. Think they get a low scoring win although this is only a small bet. Unit sizings are at the site BTW.

I’m also going with Kilmarnock to win and this is a bet I really like. St Mirren probably can’t score here as they go up against the third bese defense with the worst offence. St Mirren have issues as the forecast doesn’t suggest they can turn around their offensive woes. Kilmarnock have the goals coming in and while a drought for them is upcoming I don’t see that against St Mirren.

Final two bets are Motherwell and St Johnstone BTTS and Rangers -1.

You can bet the Scottish Premier League here.

Week 7 NFL DFS Picks at FanDuel – October 21st

Week six was probably good to you if you used some of my NFL DFS picks. Jameis Winston (32 fantasy points!) was a great guy to build around and I also hit on Ezekiel Elliott (18), Julio Jones, Tyler Boyd, Ravens D and Tevin Coleman.

My only “bad” plays were Christian McCaffrey (10 fantasy points), DeSean Jackson and Cameron Brate, who did snag a touchdown. I also faded Melvin Gordon and Todd Gurley – both of which were expensive but totally smashed in excellent spots. I loved them, but chose to be a little more contrarian.

It wasn’t a perfect week, but it was honestly pretty good. Let’s keep the good plays going as I take a look as some of my favorite week seven daily fantasy football picks at FanDuel:

QB: Baker Mayfield – Cleveland Browns ($7.1k)

There are certainly some high-end quarterback options to consider this week, but I don’t love the pricing and/or matchups for most of them. I’m just going to punt with Baker, who will be low-owned despite having an awesome matchup against the Buccaneers (dead last against fantasy quarterbacks). He was not good last week, so recency bias and a slew of viable options should keep people off of him.

Mayfield is a talented passer and he has a few weapons, though. I’ll roll the dice on an awesome matchup and low ownership. If you can’t stomach it, pay up for Jared Goff ($8.3k) as he takes on a bad 49ers defense (27th vs. QBs).

RB: Todd Gurley – Los Angeles Rams ($10.2k)

I’m saving money at quarterback this week for two reasons; I don’t love the studs and I want Gurley. Maybe he’ll garner insane ownership and he probably should. I don’t really want chalky Gurley to go nuts and not be on him, nor do I want to miss out on a potentially low-owned Gurley.

Either is fine with me, but I can see him having low ownership due to the jacked up price. I’m more than willing to pay for it, as Gurley has been flat out unstoppable with 22+ fantasy points in every single game this year. He’s facing the rival 49ers in week seven and considering they rank just 22nd against running backs, I’m not running for the hills here.

You can fade Gurley, but I don’t see many viable pivots at running back and you’d be risking giving up (hopefully) 20-30 guaranteed points. Nothing is guaranteed in NFL DFS circles, but Gurley has been crushing and I’ll gladly be paying to get in on that this week. Fingers crossed that the majority of my GPPs don’t agree with me.

RB: Ezekiel Elliott – Dallas Cowboys ($8.4k)

I’d pivot to Zeke off of Gurley, but then what? Instead, I’ll just pair the two. It sounds lazy, but in my research, I’m seeing NFL DFS experts trying to argue for the likes of Corey Clement, Kenyan Drake and even Peyton Barber as elite values.

Those guys do offer value, but I’m not sure running back is where we want it this week. I’ll just take the top shelf rushers here. Zeke doesn’t have an amazing matchup, but he’s got a huge division rivalry clash in D.C. He’s been very stable throughout 2018 and something tells me he shows up big for this one.

Besides, the last time Zeke faced the ‘Skins he piled on 150 rushing yards and two scores. I’ll be hoping for a repeat.

By the way, both Gurley and Zeke close out the Sunday main slate as part of the three afternoon games. If either of these guys are low-owned and smash, it’ll be a fun climb to the top of your tournament if the rest of this lineup pans out.

WR: Taylor Gabriel – Chicago Bears ($5.9k)

Receptions don’t count for much on FanDuel, so I want receivers that can make the most of them. That translates to speed and (ideally) touchdowns. Gabriel has blown up the past two weeks, topping 100+ yards in both games and scoring two times. He has a nice role at the moment and faces a Patriots secondary that has coughed up 9 scores through the air (3rd most) in 2018.

New England hasn’t been dominant against the pass in general, either. They’ve allowed the 11th most receptions and are only a middle of the pack defense in terms of receiving yardage allowed. Just watch what Tyreek Hill did to them last week to know how beatable they can be.

Gabriel isn’t Hill, but there are points to be had in this matchup. Whether Chicago torches the Pats early or throws all day playing catch-up, I tend to think Gabriel has a shot at a big day.

WR: D.J. Moore – Carolina Panthers ($4.9k)

I am spending big at running back this week because I don’t like the cheaper running backs and because the wide receiver position is lacking up top. You won’t find Julio Jones, Tyreek Hill or Antonio Brown on Sunday’s main slate and you also won’t find me paying for a bunch of guys as if they will for sure meet expectations.

There are a few that are worth your time (Adam Thielen, for one), but I’d rather load up on stud rushers and hope my research gives me some sleeper receivers that can crush.

I have a feeling Moore is one of them. He’s going to be aching to redeem himself after fumbling twice last week, but Carolina has already been trying to get their prized rookie involved more (9 targets the past two weeks). You can consider Devin Funchess or even hope for some revenge with Torrey Smith, but Moore makes a ton of sense against Philly’s secondary, which ranks 25th against wide receivers in 2018.

More specifically, the Eagles have allowed the most catches in football, as well as the second most receiving yards. Provided Cam Newton looks his way, I like Moore to have his best game yet as a pro in week seven.

WR: Marquise Goodwin – San Francisco 49ers ($5.5k)

The Rams aren’t exactly the first defense I want to target with explosive wide receivers, but they’re not the last, either. The Rams have a ton of talent, yet they’ve given up a lot of yardage and their fair share of points.

Wide receivers have done some serious damage against L.A., scoring 10 times on them through the air (2nd most allowed in 2018). Goodwin flashes his elite speed against Green Bay last week and even if it’s once, I think he can do it again at home against the Rams.

The Niners could torch the Rams early or they could just spend all day throwing the ball to catch-up. Either way, the speedy Goodwin seems like a fine gamble at this price.

TE: David Njoku – Cleveland Browns ($5.7k)

Jarvis Landry is in play to pair with Mayfield this week, but I’ll roll out the athletic Njoku instead. The two teamed up for a 7-55-1 line last week and Mayfield has targeted his tight end a whopping 22 times over the past two weeks.

Njoku has the talent and role to excel every single week and in week seven in particular, he draws a weak Tampa Bay defense that ranks dead last at stopping tight ends. Yeah, sign me up.

FLEX: Alvin Kamara – New Orleans Saints ($8.2k)

I find the value unbelievable on this main slate, so I’m not going to have any difficulty (or hesitance) getting to Kamara at a severely reduced price. This is a third elite rusher who won’t be active until the three afternoon games sound off and I absolutely need him in this lineup.

There is a lot working against Kamara. For one, despite a huge touch regression in his last contest, he’s still not cheap. The presence of Mark Ingram deflated his value in his last game, too, while a date with a very good Ravens defense on the road could be problematic.

But he’s still Alvin Kamara and all of that should help lower his ownership. I also like the idea of either the Saints being too much for Baltimore to handle (hey, the Bengals were) or the Saints end up playing from behind. The former could be because Kamara wrecks and the latter would give way to a lot of extra work as a receiver.

Either way, I’m going to stack three elite running backs. One will surely hit and all three have immense upside with the possibility of lower than usual ownership.

Not convinced? Pivot to Christian McCaffrey. He’s $200 cheaper than Kamara and could spurn an Eagles defense that has had issues stopping pass-catching running backs this year.

DEF: Indianapolis Colts ($4.1k)

I don’t love the Colts. They’ve given up 31+ points in each of their last three games. If they were facing anyone but the Bills, I’d never use them and I’d target them with the team they were facing.

But they are facing the Bills. Buffalo isn’t rolling Josh Allen or Nathan Peterman out there, either. They’re starting 34-year old Derek Anderson, who was brought in off the street. He isn’t going to come in and slice up the Colts. At least, he really shouldn’t. Some sacks, a couple of turnovers and maybe even a defensive touchdown might be in the cards.

Minnesota is also in a good spot against the turnover-prone Sam Darnold, while the Dolphins ($3.5k) continue to be an underrated defense and are at home. I probably like those actual defenses better, but nobody has a superior matchup this week.


I love this team. I get three stud running backs at a top-heavy position, three value receivers at a weak position, a solid value tight end and a great value quarterback. My defense is risky, but it’s got the best matchup on the board.

If you want some good pivots, drop from Gurley to McCaffrey. Pivot from Kamara to Brandin Cooks and upgrade from Goodwin to Mike Evans. That’s another variation I love for week seven, but I think the first one you see here could be more contrarian and also offers way more upside.

Here’s to hoping Gurley/Zeke/Kamara all wreck and people are scared off of stacking them to keep things balanced. I understand that fear, but in a weird week like this, it’s not one you need to give into.

Hopefully I helped you along in your NFL DFS lineup building process in some manner. Either way, I wish you luck this week. Thanks for reading and enjoy the games!

FanDuel MLB DFS Playoff Picks – October 19th

We could be one game away from the World Series, which means we’re likely one game away from all showdown slates for MLB DFS. The Boston Red Sox punched their ticket to the final baseball series of the 2018 MLB season and I’m guessing tonight the Los Angeles Dodgers will do the same.

It’s been a fun ride for the Milwaukee Brewers, but the Dodgers can smell a title shot and in a hitter’s park against lefty Wade Miley, they just might explode. You can go the other way and ride the wave of the Brew Crew, but I’m expecting the Dodgers to win easily.

Here’s my favorite team for FanDuel’s one-game showdown contest tonight:

MVP (1.5x points): Manny Machado – Los Angeles Dodgers ($9.5k)

Wade Miley heads back to the rubber to try to help the Brewers force a game seven. I’d love to see it, but I don’t think it’s happening. Miley has also been a regression candidate for basically all year, so it’d only be fitting for him to come crashing back to earth in the most important game of his life.

Machado doesn’t need Miley to crater to pay off, as he’s simply a very good hitter. He hits both sides of the plate well, but I’m targeting him for his upside and his nasty .390 wOBA and .233 ISO versus southpaws. He has as much upside as anyone and given his steep price tag there’s a slight chance he could be somewhat contrarian.

IF: Justin Turner – Los Angeles Dodgers ($8.5k)

I also love JT’s splits (.443 wOBA, .240 ISO) and I think L.A. finishes Milwaukee off here, so I’ll keep the Dodgers hype train humming along. It’s also worth noting that Wade Miley gives up a little more power to right-handed hitters, so that’s understandably the focus for Dodgers sticks on this slate.

OF: Domingo Santana – Milwaukee Brewers ($4k)

I don’t even know if Santana starts as I write this, but he’s the bare minimum at FanDuel and he does hit lefties well. He’s worth a shot against Ryu, who is a very good pitcher but can give up some contact to the right side of the plate.

UTIL: Chris Taylor – Los Angeles Dodgers ($6k)

CT3 is another guy who can hit lefties but hits pretty well from either side. He’s a great price and helps me pay up for my two favorite Dodgers mashers.

UTIL: Yasiel Puig – Los Angeles Dodgers ($6.5k)

Ditto for Puig, who isn’t very efficient against lefties, but offers a ton of power. The Dodgers as a whole get a big park upgrade here and I’m anticipating they show up big against a matchup they absolutely can thrive in.

Even if Wade Miley slays them, he probably only lasts about five innings. It’s not crazy to think L.A. can blast off once he exits. Again, I’m pulling for the Brewers here, but I get the sense this one ends tonight. If so, you’re probably going to want to be on the Dodgers.

If you want to mix in some Brewers bats, consider using Ryan Braun ($7k) over Puig in the last utility spot.

Whatever you decide, I wish you luck. Thanks for reading and enjoy the game!

Boston Celtics vs. Toronto Raptors NBA Pick – October 19th

It looked dicey for a second there, but the Philadelphia 76ers held off a 41-point explosion from the Chicago Bulls in the first quarter last night and wound up covering their -11.5 point spread. It was never an easy spread to hit, but it offered a solid -110 price and all the logic pointed to it converting.

The win moved me to a perfect 3-0 on the young NBA season. I haven’t chased an underdog yet this year, largely because I have not seen amazing value and I’m also hitched to the Eastern Conference. I refuse to do so just for the sake of “aiming high”. My goal every time out is to get our readers a win and that’s what I aim to do again on Friday evening.

There is a lot to work with here, as 18 teams will be in action. Of the lot, the game that really stands out to me is in Toronto, where the new-look Raptors host the Boston Celtics. Toronto is the understandable favorite, as they won the division last year and were also a blistering 34-7 in Canada.

However, the Raptors are still integrating Kawhi Leonard and the chemistry might not fully be there just yet. Does that mean we should jump on the east’s favorite to get to the Finals, or is there another bet to target here?

Boston Celtics (+3, -110) @ Toronto Raptors (-3, -110) Total: 209 (-110)

To be frank, I think you can argue every side of this game. It’s set up very tightly with a 3-point spread and the Raptors at home (-150 at Bovada) as a straight up winner is a pretty nice price. The Raptors were crazy good on their home floor last year, but it’s worth pointing out that they were only a middling squad (21-21) ATS when favored at the Air Canada Centre.

Boston, meanwhile, was a respectable 13-11 ATS as a road dog and was also quite good on the road in general, going 28-20 straight up outside of the TD Garden.

I personally don’t get much from last year’s data. These teams split the regular season series last year as well, each going 2-0 on their home floor. Maybe that spells this one out for us, but much like I felt they’d be at home in their opener against the Sixers, I think the Celtics are on a mission.

Eventually Toronto will feel Kawhi Leonard’s impact and the Raptors will be a force to be reckoned with. Make no mistake about it, this division is not one Boston can run away with. It will be a tight race right down to the finish. That being said, Boston is the better team at the moment.

The Celtics have more experience and production as a cohesive unit, they have a little more star power, they have the slightly better defense and they are also quite a bit deeper. Toronto is not far behind and if you want to point to how good they’ve been at home, I can’t blame you. However, the Celtics still look like the better team and getting them at a cool +135 at GTbets just feels like such a steal.

I also like the Hawks (+275) and Cavs (+300) if you really want to aim high tonight (although Cleveland ATS +8.5 feels less riskier) and you can try playing it safe with Boston (+3, -110) to simply beat this spread. But this moneyline is too sweet for one of the best teams in the NBA.

Look for Boston to flex their muscle here and show Kawhi and company they’ve got some work to do to keep them from claiming the division title this year.
