Flyers vs. Blue Jackets NHL Pick – October 18th

The Philadelphia Flyers are in Columbus for a meeting with the Blue Jackets before they go back home for Saturday. They recently downed the Panthers at home on Monday, so this is sandwich game for them on the road. With the win, the Flyers moved to 3-3-0 on the season.

It’s an average start for what is going to be a relatively average team in 2018-19. Their season started with a big win over the Golden Knights in Vegas, 5-2, and then they didn’t get their third win until Monday in a shootout against the Panthers.

The performance of Brian Elliott yet again got attention for all the wrong reasons, as he gave up 4 goals on 23 shots. Elliott was benched in favour of backup Calvin Pickard, who proceeded to allow a goal in on 3 shots. Much of the blame can’t go with the defence. Elliott only had to face 23 shots, but managed to make just 19 saves. He ultimately finished with a save percentage of 0.826.

The Flyers’ offence luckily came to the rescue, but Michael Hutchison was awful as well. The Florida netminder allowed 5 goals on 26 shots and then lost in the shootout. No Luongo means no help in net for the Panthers. If the Panthers have their starting goaltender in that game do the Flyers win? Or at least, an average goalie? Probably not. It wasn’t the best win for Philadelphia if you examine the game. The Blue Jackets have had a long break leading up to tonight. The last time they were on the ice was Saturday against the Lightning. It was an ugly game for them, as they took an 8-2 loss in Tampa. Get our free Flyers vs. Blue Jackets pick below.

Philadelphia Flyers vs. Columbus Blue Jackets Pick

While Brian Elliott hasn’t been hot to start the season, and really hasn’t been a dependable goaltender since he was in St. Louis, Sergei Bobrovsky goes into tonight with a 4.39 GAA and 0.86 save percentage. His previous start certainly skews those numbers up a lot, though. Bobrovsky got smashed for 8 goals against the Lightning in the 8-2 loss.

He likely should have been pulled before that came to fruition, but the Blue Jackets did have an extended layoff to get over that loss. The Blue Jackets are averaging 3.20 goals per game and allowing 3.8 goals per game. Again, the 8 goals skewing that number up.

The Flyers have allowed at least 4 goals in four of their first six games, so their numbers are pretty consistent. They’ve given up an average of 4.17 goals per game. It’s been a combination of Elliott struggling and their defence playing lazy. They gave up 48 shots against the Sharks on the 9th, so that’s just a case of not playing defence.

Note that the Blue Jackets have hit the net over 30 times in every game this season to make for an average of 34 shots. The Flyers have been awful in Columbus with a record of 1-11 in their last twelve trips here. Overall, the Jackets are 15-5 in their previous twenty meetings. After getting plenty of time to shake off the terrible loss in Tampa, the Jackets likely bounce back at home.

Newcastle v Brighton Predictions & Betting Odds – 20th October 2018

Newcastle v Brighton Betting Tips – Premier League, 20th October 3.00pm

Newcastle start an important period of their season. Their tough run of fixtures is now behind them and they have to start looking forward to better things. Can they make it count on home soil against the Seagulls? Brighton stopped along winless streak just before the international break, but have little away from behind them. Read our predictions for Newcastle v Brighton.

Newcastle v Brighton Betting Odds*

Newcastle 23/20

Newcastle News and Form

Newcastle position in the top flight looks pretty precarious. But an extremely difficult fixture list hasn’t helped them. They have already faced five of the big six in the league in their eight games so far. They are still on the search for their first league victory of the season, with them having only two points on the board.

Those were earned in away draws, so it has been empty-handed returns from them at St James’ Park this season. Newcastle though have scored in three of their four home games, exactly one goal in each of those (which were all 2-1 losses). All but one of their league defeats this season have been by a one-goal margin.

They were 2-0 up at halftime at Manchester United before the international break, but still ended up losing 3-2. In each of their home games this term Newcastle have conceded at least two goals. But this game against Brighton starts a run of much easier-looking fixtures for them. This is where they have a chance to start turning things around.

A Newcastle 1-0 correct score is at 6/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:01 pm). Each of their three games this season not against the big six sides have all ended under 2.5 goals so that is the way to go for Newcastle v Brighton predictions.

Brighton News and Form

Brighton have a chance to pull nine points clear of Newcastle with a win in this one. That would be pretty huge for them. Brighton have achieved two victories in the top flight this season, part of a W2 D2 L4 record that they have returned so far. They got their second win of the season with a 1-0 home win over West Ham just before the international break. Both of their league wins this term happened at home by a one-goal margin.

So while things have been decent enough from them down at the Amex, their away form isn’t there. They have taken one point from four away games this season, failing to score in three of those four games on the road. Newcastle to win to nil is at 12/5 odds and may be worth a flutter* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:01 pm). Brighton have faced two of the sides currently sat in the bottom five this season and collected a 2-2 draw in both of them (against Southampton and Fulham).

Newcastle v Brighton Head to Head

Things were tight between the two clubs in last season’s Premier League meetings. There was a 0- 0 draw in this corresponding fixture after Brighton had collected three points in a 1-0 home win over the Magpies. Those are the only two previous Premier League meetings. Newcastle are W2 D1 L1 in their last four league matches against Brighton now and have not conceded in their last two at home against the Seagulls.

Newcastle v Brighton Predictions

Newcastle to win: We feel this is where the Magpies should be able to make it count. They have no form behind them, but then the Seagulls have been struggling on the road. There could be a big three points heading the way of the Magpies.

Denver Broncos vs. Arizona Cardinals Betting Tips

Posted: October 18, 2018

(Photo credit: David Zalubowski/AP Photo)

The sports world never stops. Not only do we have Thursday Night Football tonight, we also have an MLB playoff game between the Astros and Red Sox, tons of NHL games, college football, and the 2018 debut of LeBron James as a Laker.

We’re going to focus on the football game first. Both of these teams are in desperate need of a win to keep their slim playoff hopes alive. The Broncos are 2-4 on the year while the Cardinals are just 1-5. This game probably won’t be pretty with Case Keenum under center for the Broncos and rookie Josh Rosen going for Arizona. Both teams will try hard to establish the run here and rely on their defense. Keenum has actually been pretty solid the last two weeks, but the home fans are booing him anyway. He’ll probably be happy to be on the road today.

Denver Broncos vs. Arizona Cardinals Betting Tips:

The Arizona offense has been bad, really bad. They are yet to have a game with 300 total yards on offense. Not passing, TOTAL yards. How is that even possible? Meanwhile, the Broncos have been easily over that number in every game except for one.

The worry with Denver is that they’ve allowed over 270 yards rushing in each of the past two weeks and 146 the week before that. The story goes that maybe David Johnson will be able to get going in this one. That’s a good theory, but we’re talking about a guy who is averaging just 3.2 yards per carry and has only 296 yards all season. I don’t think the Broncos will suddenly become run stoppers here, but it takes two to tango.

As I said before too, Keenum has been decent. He’s had some big games and he can get touchdowns. I’m not sure I’d say the same about Rosen right now. This feels like an easy one to me.

Bet Broncos -1.5

College Football Betting Tips:

That NFL game isn’t going to be much fun to watch I imagine, but Stanford and Arizona State in a Pac-12 match-up has the potential to be a great one. Stanford is in a bad place right now as they’ve dropped two straight to Utah and Notre Dame and now head on the road for an important conference game.

Sadly, I don’t see things getting better for them here. The last two losses have been pretty ugly and the Arizona State running game is serious. They are averaging 175 yards per game on the season including a crazy 396 yards allowed performance against Oregon State. I could see them packing them on like that today as Stanford has allowed over 222 in each of the past two weeks.

Bet Arizona State +2.5

NBA Betting Tips:

The game of the night is probably the Blazers hosting the Lakers. Not for the playoff implications or anything like that, but because tonight is the first regular season game with LeBron James in a Lakers uniform and it will be on national television. I like the Lakers a lot this year and think they have the potential to be a top-four seed. While the Blazers were swept out of the playoffs last year thanks in part to defense by Rajon Rondo who just so happens to be a Laker now as well. This game feels like it will be a showcase for the new Lakers and I expect them to do very well here. I can’t believe they are getting points.

Bet Lakers +3

Penguins vs. Maple Leafs NHL Pick – October 18th

In an early season matchup that a lot of people have been looking forward to, the Pittsburgh Penguins travel to Toronto for a meeting with the high-octane Maple Leafs. The Leafs have been flying to open the season with six wins in their first seven games of the season. They sit atop almost every power ranking you will find and it’s easy to see why if you’ve watched them play this season. The Maple Leafs can match any team offensively, and will throughout the season if John Tavares and Auston Matthews stay healthy.

The supporting cast has been good as well, especially Kasperi Kapanen who has been riding with the top-line in the absence of Willian Nylander. Kyle Dubas is currently flying over to Switzerland to talk to Nylander about his contract, so we’ll see where that goes. Neither party is budging in contract discussions at the moment.

If and when Nylander returns, it’s crazy to think that the offence will be better. Others are going to want to be paid when as well, so it could provide a tricky situation when that occurs. Especially if Kapanen continues at this pace, Dubas will be forced to manage the salary cap closely.

With all of that said, though, it’s no use focusing on then when the Leafs have the best chances they’ve had in decades of winning a Stanley Cup. I can surely see their defence letting them down in the postseason, but there aren’t going to be many teams who are going to be able to keep up with their speed for 3 periods. The LA Kings were their latest victim on Monday, a 4-1 win for the Leafs in what was a case of young vs old legs. The Penguins are tied with the Kings at an average of a 28-year-old roster, so we’ll see if they can keep pace. Head below for our free Penguins vs. Maple Leafs pick.

Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Toronto Maple Leafs Pick

The Penguins have looked like old news on the ice to start the year. They’ve gone 2-1-1, with a crazy 7-6 overtime win against the Capitals and a 4-2 win over Vegas. However, if you’ve watched both of their last two games, it’s been an ugly display put on by the Pens. They were outplayed by the Canadiens and Canucks, two teams who they should have no business losing against back-to-back.

Both of them came in extra time, with a loss in a shootout against the Canadiens and in 4-on-4 hockey against the Canucks. They’ve already lost to the Canadiens twice this season. Offensively the Pens are going to be fine, but their defence is likely going to look lost tonight. Even with Justin Schultz in the lineup they’re below average. Now, subtract Schultz and the defence thins out some more.

Matt Murray could return to the net tonight in Toronto, but there have been no indications whether it’ll be him or Casey DeSmith. Murray hasn’t played in twelve days after suffering a concussion. When he was healthy, Murray wasn’t performing at an ideal level. He has a 5.47 GAA and 0.831 save percentage to make for a rough start for him in net.

Murray has allowed 11 goals through the first two games, which came against the Habs and Capitals. Despite the slow start, DeSmith is not the answer in net for the Pens for a full-year. So, they just have to hope this isn’t a sign of things to come for Murray. The Pens have allowed 3.8 goals per game, while the Maple Leafs have scored 4.71 goals per game. Not the best matchup for the Pens, but there is an opening there against a defence who have allowed 3.29 goals per game.

Frederik Andersen is questionable to start, which would give Garret Sparks another go between the pipes. Sparks was fine against the Kings, but he would get a bigger test against the Penguins. There should be ample opportunities for goals, which should result in more than 6 on the board. The OVER has gone 4-0 in their last four meetings, with an average of 7.5 goals scored. Thursday night should make for another.

DraftKings NFL Week 7 Picks

Below are my favorite values for DraftKings’ Week 7 Sunday main slate. There is only ten games to target, but as always, be sure to be watching all the news outlets up until kickoff and to check out my Week 7 sleeper picks, that will be posted later in the week @Hunta512.

QB: Tom Brady: (6,100)

Brady has only ever been this cheap one other time in the history of DraftKings and that was back in 2014. I understand that he is on the road vs The Bears (2nd in DVOA and 1st in pass DVOA), but they have actually cooled down after their extremely impressive start. In Weeks 1-4, they gave up 22.16 FPG to QBs, but since then, QBs are scoring 25.02 FPG on them, which is the 10th highest average over the last two weeks. As they always seem to do, Brady and The Patriots showed flaws to the start the year, but have quickly figured it out in the past few games. He started the year scoring only 16.1 DK PPG in the first three games, but is averaging 27.3 in the last three.

Yes, all these games were at home, but as a whole, this offense is a completely different unit, with a healthy Sony Michel helping them on the ground. They should be just fine in Solider Field and Vegas agrees, favoring them by three points, and giving them a healthy implied team total of 26.25 points. (T2 for highest of the slate) Brady should throw for multiple TDs and his ceiling is slightly higher now, with Josh Gordon (below) becoming a full time player. There really isn’t any reason to pay up at QB and I think attacking The GOAT at a career low price is the best choice for cash games this week.

RB: Christian McCaffrey: (7,700)

McCaffrey had a rough game vs The Redskins in Week 6 (13.6 DK points), but this matchup was tough for his skill set. (9th in DVOA vs passes to RBs) He should get back on track vs The Eagles, who have really struggled with pass catching backs as of late. In their last three games, this Eagles defense has given up the most catches and receiving yards to RBs in The NFL. (26 catches, 224 yards) On a per game basis, RBs are averaging 8.2/74.6 through the air when facing The Eagles. To put this in perspective, The Falcons, who everyone knows is awful at defending receiving RBs, have only allowed 5.6 CPG and 56.6 YPG in these three weeks.

Last season, in his first career game vs The Eagles, McCaffrey thrived, catching 10 of 14 targets for 56 yards and a TD. (22.4 DK points) As road underdogs (PHI -5), The Panther should be a pass first offense. Cam Newton should rely on McCaffrey out of the backfield and in the one game that they were underdogs this season, McCaffrey had his best showing as a featured back, scoring 30.9 DK points vs The Falcons in Week 2. With a $600 price drop since last week, this is the perfect time to get back on McCaffrey.

WR: Josh Reynolds: (3,500)

Cooper Kupp (knee) has already been ruled out for Sunday, putting Reynolds as The Rams’ #3 WR vs The Niners. Being the third option in any old offense usually doesn’t mean much, but this is The Rams, who are the third highest scoring unit in football, that runs three WR sets 95% of the time. (via DraftKings) If we don’t count last week, when he got hurt, Kupp was running 34.4 routes and seeing 8.2 targets per game. (24.7% market share) This opens up a sizable amount of usage to be distributed to Reynolds, Brandin Cooks, and Robert Woods.

Reynolds hasn’t done much to this point (3/6 targets for 37 yards), but he should garner 5-10 targets from Jared Goff, who is a QB, that always seems to spread the ball out to his offense. The matchup is also in his favor, with this Niners’ secondary ranking 26th in pass DVOA and 23rd in DVOA vs #3 WRs. Per usual, The Rams have the highest implied team total of the slate (31.25 points), by a large five points. For a full time player, that is part of the offense that is expected to score the most points of the slate, I don’t see how you can go wrong with Reynolds at a near minimum salary.

TE: David Njoku: (4,200)

After putting up three single digit DK scores to open the season, Njoku has scored 10.2, 12.9, and 18.5 DK points, since Baker Mayfield took over at QB. The targets also went up in each game, seeing 7, 11, and then 12, which results in a team high 23.4% market share during this span. Finally, after only seeing one redzone target through the first five weeks, Njoku saw two vs The Chargers this past Sunday and finally scored his first TD of the year. (18.5 DK points) Now, with the type of usage he deserves, Njoku gets the best possible matchup he could ask for vs The Bucs.

Not only are dead last in pass DVOA, but they also rank 29th in DVOA vs TEs. To the position, they have allowed a line of 7.2/97.2/0.6 though five games. (most fantasy points to TEs) The Browns currently have their highest implied team total of 2018 (23.25 points) and with this type of volume, Njoku has a solid floor and a ceiling, for a very reasonable price. (Bucs have given up three TE TDs)

Also Consider:

QB: Jameis Winston and Cam Newton. (having Greg Olsen back is huge and he scored 23.6 DK points in his last game vs The Eagles)

RB: Todd Gurley (the clear #1 option of the slate. He is back to being under $10,000 and is coming off a 200 yard rushing performance. The Niners rank 26th in DVOA and have allowed the 10th most FPG to RBs), Ezekiel Elliot (The Redskins are 30th in rush DVOA and he has seen at least 25 touches in three straight games), T.J. Yeldon (only if Leonard Fournette sits again. He is averaging 20.1 DK PPG and 16.6 in these last three without Fournette. The Texans are 2nd in rush DVOA, but The Jags are five point home favorites, and with Grant also out, Yeldon is a pretty safe bet for 20+ touches), Sony Michel (rather TD dependent, but is averaging 4.4 YPC. If the game goes as expected and The Pats get a lead, Michel will exceed value), Tarik Cohen (27.75 DK PPG the past two weeks, but just with Michel in the same game, his production depends on the game script. If they need to throw it more to keep up with The Pats, Cohen will be very involved through the air. He is averaging 7/105.5/0.5 receiving in these last two), and Peyton Barber. (don’t like chasing the points from the dream matchup vs The Falcons, but they claim he is the lead back and proved that in Week 6. He played 62% of the snaps and scored 20.6 DK points in 17 touches)

WR: Adam Thielen (he has put up over 100 yards and has seen at least 10 targets in each game. They pass the ball 67% of the time and this volume isn’t going anywhere. Especially this week vs The Jets. Thielen will face off against one of the worst slot CBs in The NFL, Parry Nickerson, who has a low PFF grade of 38.4. This gives Thielen the biggest advantage for a WR in Week 7, via PFF), Jarvis Landry (struggling right now, but still averaging 11 TPG in the last four. He has to pop off soon and this is the perfect spot, vs the worst pass defense in The NFL, in The Bucs), Robert Woods, Alshon Jeffery, Josh Gordon (Gordon played 18 snaps in each of his first two games with The Pats, but then came out and logged 63 on Sunday night vs The Chiefs. He caught five of nine targets for 42 yards in the win. This was obviously by design and I am sure he will play most of the snaps again this week. The Bears CBs are tough and they rank 1st in pass DVOA, but things have to click soon for Brady and Gordon, no matter the matchup), Taylor Gabriel (over 100 yards in back to back games and if they are playing from behind, Gabriel has a solid chance of continuing this streak), and Jermaine Kearse. (after Quincy Enunwa left the game with the ankle injury, Kearse was the main man, playing 83% of the snaps and catching 9/10 targets for 94 yards vs The Colts, which are all season highs. Enunwa has already been ruled out vs The Vikings and Kearse should be active out of the slot (78% of his snaps), with Xavier Rhodes locking up Robby Anderson outside)

TE: Zach Ertz. (19 DK PPG this season and The Panthers are 17th in DVOA vs TEs and have given up the 7th most FPs to the position)

D: Jags, Lions (Ryan Tannehill is out again and Oswieler is good for at least a few picks), and Cowboys.

Stanford vs. Arizona State NCAAF Pick – Week 8

The Stanford Cardinal roll into the desert for a Thursday night battle with the Arizona State Sun Devils. Stanford have lost two games in a row, a 38-17 decision to Notre Dame and they followed it up by getting smacked against Utah last week, 40-21. Losing to Utah isn’t a bad loss, but getting trounced, 40-21, at home is pretty ugly. Utah are the most underrated team in the Pac-12, so losing to them alone isn’t anything surprising.

However, the way in which the Cardinal got punched in the mouth at Palo Alto had to be unnerving for David Shaw and company. Stanford went from 4-0 to 4-2 real quick. They were coming off a crazy win over Oregon in overtime, 38-31, in Eugene and haven’t been able to get back into a groove since. Stanford had no business winning that game, but Oregon seemingly handed it to the Cardinal with their inability to manage the clock. It was a good game in any event.

Stanford will be looking to avoid three straight losses in Tempe on Thursday night. Herm Edwards has done a well enough job in his first-year as the head coach at Arizona State. Following the departure of Todd Graham, the hiring of Edwards left some scratching their heads wondering if he still could direct a sideline. It’s too early to say, but they’ve been looking pretty decent thus far. The Sun Devils have a record of 3-3 and played Washington pretty hard on the road. So, I would say that the verdict is still out on Edwards.

Bryce Love hasn’t looked the same as the guy who could have won the Heisman a season ago. He fought through injuries last year and made the most of it with an impressive season. Love missed last week against Utah. Backup Trevor Speights looked okay with 56 yards on 17 carries. Love has been waiting for a game to go wild in and we’ll see if it comes on Thursday night, if he starts. He’s currently listed as questionable to play. The Stanford offense has centered around quarterback KJ Costello and wide receiver JJ Arcega-Whiteside with Love banged up. Head below for our free Stanford vs. Arizona State pick.

Stanford Cardinal vs. Arizona State Sun Devils NCAAF Betting Odds:

Stanford -2.5 (-115)
vs. Arizona State +2.5(-105)

Over 57.5(-112)
Under 57.5(-108)

Betting odds provided by Sportsbetting.ag

Stanford vs. Arizona State Pick:

Bryce Love has averaged 4.3 yards per carry thus far this season. He set a career-high with 8.1 yards a carry last season, so this is certainly a drop off, and the lowest of his four years in college. The Sun Devils are a more aggressive team that they’ve been in the past. They aren’t a paper-thin defense, but does that mean they are at the point of being good?

No, they just aren’t one of the worst defenses in the country. Notably, their pass defense was giving nearly 400 yards per game just a couple of years ago. The Sun Devils are 62nd against the pass now, with 222.7 yards allowed per game. In what will have to be strong with Love in the lineup, their rushing defense has given up 162.3 yards per game for 70th in the nation.

Defensively they are turning a corner, but clearly aren’t there yet. Look for Edwards to attack the recruiting circuit hard with defense in mind. He’s an old school coach who ultimately wants to mimic a physical Pac-12 team like Washington. Edwards and the defense will have to worry about Love and the passing game.

They are not as one-dimensional as we’ve seen in the past. If only they could get Love going and there’d be something to get excited about. Costello has thrown 12 touchdowns and 6 interceptions. His best outing was a 3-touchdown performance against Oregon, but he was neutralized against really good Notre Dame and Utah defenses. The Sun Devils will not pose as much of a threat on defense as they did. Arcega-Whiteside has already hauled in 8 touchdowns and 541 yards from Costello.

Arizona State are coming off a 28-21 loss to the Colorado Buffaloes on the road. They are coming off a bye, so they’ve had some time to fix some things. Manny Wilkins has led a balanced attack through the air and ground. He’s improved under Herm Edwards, especially limiting his mistakes. Wilkins has only 1 interception to go with 11 touchdowns. Eno Benjamin is averaging 5.7 yards as their leading runner. Note that one of Stanford’s best defensive players, linebacker Casey Toohill, will be back after missing three games.

They are still looking for a marquee win, though. Some might consider Michigan State marquee, but the Sun Devils caught them sleeping out west and despite beating Penn State, the Spartans lost to Northwestern and were nearly upset by Utah State. Arizona State have losses against San Diego State, Washington, and Colorado. After tonight I think you can add Stanford to that list.

Although Arizona State are coming off a bye, they have to come back to a Stanford team who have looked awful the last two weeks. Against a much weaker defense, look for the Cardinal to move the ball much more effectively. Arizona State might be ready to deliver blows in a year or two against Stanford, but I don’t believe it comes on Thursday night.

Golf & CFL Tips – October 17th, 2018

Posted: October 17, 2018

It’s been a pretty good run in the golf the past few weeks.

In September I had a 50/1 e/w cash, a 28/1 e/w cash, correctly picking Europe to win the Ryder Cup, a 90/1 e/w cash 2 weeks ago in the LPG and then correctly picking In Gee Chun to win the LPGA KEB Hana Bank Championship last week!

I usually post my tips here on SBT each week but occasionally I get a bit too busy. So be sure to subscribe at my personal Golf Betting Tips website.

Here’s the betting slip from the In Gee Chun win:

Not trying to brag or anything but it does feel good getting these wins and I want to make sure you all make money on these big prices along with me!

Reason I also mention the site is that the CJ Cup has already started. If you’re quick you can get into live in-play at the site linked below. If not sorry – I got the timezones mixed up and didn’t get this up here in time. Had it up at the golf tips site bright and early this morning though.

Here’s who I have in the CJ Cup:

Justin Thomas To Win, Brandt Snedeker and Kevin Na To Win & Top 5

The other golf tip is in the Valderrama Masters and it’s Robert Rock to win and Top 5.

So with golf already close to underway let’s spend this Wednesday looking at the CFL Picks:

CFL Week 19:

Crazy that the season is almost over with but also still wide open. We have four teams who have made it through but who wins the East is still very tight and we still have three teams from the West battling for that final playoff spot.

I think the Eskimos will be one of those teams but not sure about Blue Bombers and the BC Lions. I do think the Blue Bombers are that team but anything could happen.

This week I’m going with:

Redblacks to Win. Man this is an incredible game and I HATE betting against the Hamilton offense. They are so fun to watch. However I’ve went over it and over it and I just think Ottawa are the better team all around. Sure Hamiltons offense is insane but Ottawa handled them well the last time they played. Ottawa will not be complacent after the way they blew it against the Eskimos and will come out strong. They have a couple of excellent WRs and the best RB in the league.

Eskimos vs Lions – Over 53 Points. This is a big game but I think the Eskimos offense is clicking big time at the moment. They’ll come into this one rolling and just keep going and should be able to get the points. I’d be very surprised if the Lions can’t keep up and this one is going over – I’m sure of it.

Montreal Alouettes +4.5. They go up against Toronto in the battle of “who gives a crap”. In saying that both these teams have given a lot of effort this season and even when it was obvious they were leagues below the other teams they haven’t given up so props to them. I think Manziel and the Alouettes finish strong and will have some confidence after that Stampeders performance.

Calgary Stampeders -8.5. The Stampeders haven’t been themselves lately but they can clinch the division with a win here(even though it’s pretty much theirs anyway) and are a beast at home. The Roughriders have injuries up the ass and I think at this stage being in the playoffs already they’ll be quite happy to just take it easy the next couple of weeks. They don’t need any more injuries and while I don’t think they’ll roll over they won’t have the fignt in them.

Broncos vs. Cardinals TNF Pick – NFL Week 7

It’s hard to believe it, but Week 7 is already upon us for the NFL’s regular season and it will kick off Thursday evening with a showdown between the Denver Broncos and the Arizona Cardinals. Neither squad was expected to be all that great in 2018, but both teams were surely expecting better things.

Arizona has been brutal under new coach Steve Wilks. David Johnson looks like a shell of his former self, and Sam Bradford clearly is no longer a starting quarterback. At 1-5, they’re already gearing towards the future with Josh Rosen under center – but that is clearly a move that won’t help in the short term. The Cards are a mess, but a primetime victory would give the franchise a small glimmer of hope.

For Denver, they enter a mediocre 2-4, but can hang their hat on the fact that they played the Los Angeles Rams pretty tough last week. A three-point loss can almost be considered a moral victory the way things have gone with Denver, but it doesn’t shield the fact that they still have quarterback issues and are struggling defensively. The Broncos were supposed to be one of the league’s top stop units, but have looked a tad disappointing in recent weeks. They will need to regain their form vs. the struggling Cards if they are to have any hope at the post-season.

It’s been a successful start to the season for football picks here at The Sports Geek and we will look to keep that momentum rolling as we head into the second half of the NFL regular season. As always, read on below the odds for full analysis and a betting selection to get Week 7 off to a winning start.

Broncos vs. Cardinals Betting Odds:

Denver Broncos -1.5 (-112)
@ Arizona Cardinals +1.5 (-108)

Over 42 (-112)
Under 42 (-108)

Broncos vs. Cardinals Pick:

Josh Rosen is young and relatively unproven, but it’s clear he is an upgrade over Sam Bradford. It really is too bad it took Arizona so long to move to the rookie, but it’s clear that he’s semi-ready for his starting role, and much better suited to the NFL than Sam Bradford ever will be.

Rosen has been unfortunate in that he doesn’t have very good protection from his offensive line, and if he can manage to evade some of Denver’s blitzing pressure – he can certainly move the chains on Thursday night. As mentioned, the Broncos have struggled with their defensive play, surrendering 500-plus rushing yards over the past two weeks. This means Rosen will have a suitable outlet in running back David Johnson. And though he has struggled this year, the Broncos linebackers have struggled so far and can’t cover receivers out of the backfield. Beyond that, Denver’s secondary is also quite porous at the moment, so look for youngster Christian Kirk to be in line for a big night. Openings will be there for Arizona’s improving attack.

Case Keenum hasn’t exactly carried over last year’s magic with the Vikings to the Mile High City. He has struggled this season to live up to his lofty contract, and this week might add to his woes. Patrick Peterson remains an elite cornerback for the Cardinals and should completely limit the Broncos’ top wideout in Demaryius Thomas. The Cards’ do have a poor run defense though, so they’ll need to shore that up if they are to keep the Broncos fully in check.

Making matters worse for Denver’s chances in this contest is their poor pass protection. They have been awful of late and are currently enduring a bad rash of injuries along the offensive line. That’s bad news for Keenum as the Cards’ boast a solid pass rush and will face more pressure than he is used to. Keenum has struggled when hurried and could be forced into costly turnovers and mistakes.

The Broncos are awful away from home, and are being priced on the belief that their defense will improve. They match up poorly with the Cardinals and what Rosen and Johnson can do on offense, and I think the Cards get charged up for a chance to secure a rare home victory. Take the home underdog on Thursday night.

PICK = Cardinals +1.5 (-108)

Mr Fixit’s Top Tips: Only 1 day to go and we’re back

IT was mr orange who was counting down the days to the return of league action and he's not the only one.

Wednesday was as quiet a night as I can remember and I'm beginning to despise international breaks.

They stop not only the momentum of teams in form but also punters who are going well.

In the five weeks before the break I was around 75 points up and almost feel like I'm starting again.

The only good thing about a few quiet nights is I've already written Saturday's previews and earlier posted a Super Single shortlist.

On Thursday there's nothing much to look at except Almeria v Reus and Raya Majadahonda v Sporting Gijon in the Spanish Cup last 64 as well as a short-priced Benfica at Sertarnense in the Portuguese Cup. Two home wins in Spain are possible but I'm not betting on it.

Well done to any winners on Wednesday and good luck if you're having a go on Thursday.

It's only one day to Friday and mr orange's Eerste league games as well as matches such as Sheffield Wednesday v Middlesbrough, Eintracht Frankfurt v Fortuna Dusseldorf and Lyon v Nimes.

Mr Fixit's October Super Singles Total: +5.9pts

Mr Fixit's October Advised Accas Total: +10.5pts

Golf Tips: Wade into this 60-1 shot at Andalucia Masters

THE European Tour heads to Spain for the Andalucia Masters with defending champion Sergio Garcia the only Ryder Cup player involved.

Headline act Garcia is a short-priced favourite but offers little value at 4-1 though he will be in the mix come Sunday afternoon.

I've picked out two better value options. First is Marcus Kinhult who has had a good season and is a consistent driver on a course where accuracy from tee to green are essential.

The second pick is Australian Wade Ormsby who likes finding fairways for fun. He finished fifth around here last year and could go closer this time.

Recommended Bets

  • Kinhult  to win 1pt eachway (33-1, Skybet)
  • Kinhult top-10 finish 1pt (3-1, Unibet)
  • Ormsby  to win 1pt eachway (60-1, bet365)
  • Ormsby top-10 finish 1pt (5-1, bet365)

Golf Tips: In-form pair can climb the Korea ladder at CJ Cup

THE US PGA tour heads for Korea tonight for the CJ Cup and second week of the Asian Swing.

The betting is dominated by Americans Justin Thomas and Brooks Koepka and Australians Jason Day and Marc Leishman, who won the CIMB Classic on Sunday. However, I like the look of two others who offer better value at bigger prices.

The first is another Aussie, Cameron Smith, who finished third twice in the recent FedEx playoffs. He has the accuracy from the tee to make him a serious contender this week to record a maiden Tour victory.

The second selection is Korean An Byeong-hun who was also last week's selection. He finished tied 13th, eight shots behind the winner, but only three shots off second place. He'll be better suited to this course and can go close for a home victory.

Recommended bets

  • Smith to win 1pt eachway (25-1, Betstars)
  • Smith top-10 finish 1pt (3-1, Skybet)
  • An to win 1pt eachway (30-1, bet365)
  • An top-10 finish 1pt (3-1, William Hill)

Juventus v Genoa Predictions & Betting Odds – 20th October 2018

Juventus v Genoa Betting Tips – Serie A, 20th October 5.00pm

Will it be business as usual for Juventus as they return to league action after the international break? They are eight wins from eight league games this season so far and are just romping their way through the league season. Their next challengers/potential victims are Genoa who make the trip to Turin. Read our predictions for Juventus v Genoa.

Juventus v Genoa Betting Odds*

Juventus 2/11
Draw 11/2
Genoa 14/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 17th, 2018 at 9:00 p.m.)

Table of Contents

It has been nothing less than a procession for Juventus this season in the top flight. They have played eight and won eight. That sequence includes games against two of the other sides in the top four, Lazio and Napoli. The Old Lady have returned at least two goals in each of their four home games in the league this season.

They will have Champions League action in midweek, so with that in mind, a comfortable Juventus 2-0 correct score option is at 5/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018 at 7:35 pm). They took a comfortable 3-1 win over second-place Napoli in their last home game.

There is a trend with those 2-0 scorelines. Four of their eight wins this season have been by that. Cristiano Ronaldo has been among the goals for them, but probably not as heavily as fans would have expected.

But still, he is a ridiculously priced 2/1 first goalscorer favourite here* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018 at 7:35 pm). The other sensible option for the game from a betting perspective is probably Juventus to win to nil.

Genoa News and Form

Tough fixture for Genoa then, who lost their last league game before the international break, suffering a 3-1 home defeat against Parma. Genoa are W4 D0 L3 for the season with two of the three defeats happening out on the road. Their lone away win happened at Frosinone, the side currently second from bottom in the table. Genoa are actually the current top scorers in the bottom half of the table.

However, looking at the league overall, they have the third-worst defensive record in the entire thing. Still, we are going under 2.5 goals at 6/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018 at 7:35 pm). In their three league defeats alone this season they have conceded twelve goals. There is an obvious indication of their status. They have won all games against sides currently in the bottom half this season. Meanwhile, they have lost all of their games against sides currently in the top half of the table.

Juventus v Genoa Head to Head

Juventus meet Genoa in league and cup last season and won all three games against them, two of them to nil. Juve are currently on a four-match winning streak against Genoa. At home they have won their last five in a row in Serie A against Genoa, not conceding a single goal in any of those games. Both teams have scored in just two of the last eleven meetings.

Juventus v Genoa Predictions

Juventus to win: You wouldn’t expect to read anything else here other than a Juventus win. That’s what we are going with and that is what should happen. There is a comfortable to win to nil option, but the 2-0 correct score appeals greatly.

Stephen Hawking favourite to be the face of the new £50 note

There has been an announcement from the Bank of England that there will be a new £50 note coming out.

Paddy Power have fired up a market on whose face could be appearing on the new bill with the early market leader being Stephen Hawking at 9/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018 at 8:12 pm).

Who will appear on the new £50 Note odds?

9/1 Stephen Hawking
10/1 Mary Seacole
12/1 Edith Cavell
16/1 Margaret Thatcher
20/1 Richard Attenborough
20/1 William Blake
22/1 Beatrix Potter
33/1 Princess Diana
33/1 David Bowie
500/1 Gareth Southgate
500/1 Harry Maguire
* (betting odds taken from Paddy Power on October 17th, 2018 at 8:12 pm)

Hawking, famed theoretical physicist died earlier this year in March and it probably would be a wonderful tribute to a man who has continued so much to so many. However, there have been a lot of calls for it to be a woman to appear on the new note.

British-Jamaican nurse Mary Seacole is a very popular selection and has been backed well in the market at 10/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018 at 8:12 pm).

The other leading woman is former PM Margaret Thatcher at 16/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018 at 8:12 pm). There has actually been a petition raised to get Thatcher no the note.

Author Jane Austen was the first woman to appear on a new banknote (other than the Queen) after a campaign to get a woman represented in the currency. Steam engine pioneers James Watt and Matthew Boulton appear on the current £50, issued in 2011.

After a bit of a frenzy on social media after the announcement, Paddy Power put a 500/1 price on current England boss Gareth Southgate appearing* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018 at 8:12 pm).

Real Madrid 7/2 favourites to be Arsene Wenger’s next job

There were cryptic words from former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger this week as he announced that he announced that he expects to be back at work on January 1st, 2019. Obviously not linking himself with a club at this point, the Frenchman said that he has taken in offers from all over the world.

Arsene Wenger Next Managerial Job*

Real Madrid – 7/2
France – 11/2
PSG – 11/2
Any Chinese Club – 11/2
AC Milan – 11/2
Monaco – 11/2
Any MLS Club – 10/1
England – 16/1
Bayern Munich – 20/1
Japan – 20/1
Barcelona – 20/1

Back In Business

So if indeed he does come back, where will the 68-year-old, who spent 22 years with the Gunners, head to? He said that he doesn’t know where his next job will be, but it could be with an association, national team or even a return to Japan where he briefly had a stint with Nagoya Grampus Eight. He is 20/1 to take over as actual Japan boss* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018 at 8:12 pm).

Top European Club Jobs Could Be Open

However, there are some high profile clubs around at the moment who are struggling and could be ready to shake things up at the turn of the new year. Among them are Real Madrid who are 8/1 to be Wenger’s next club* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018 at 8:12 pm).

Under new manager Julen Lopetegui, Los Blancos have gone off the boil with a D1 L3 record in their last four games in all competitions, not having managed to score in any of those fixtures. So Wenger would probably be a decent target for the club there to take over and get them going again if this slump continues.

Bayern Munich are misfiring a bit this season as well and they are unhappy with the way things are going under new coach Niko Kovac. Former Arsenal CEO Ivan Gazidis is at AC Milan so that could be another possible destination. Wenger is at 7/1 to manage any Chinese club* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018 at 8:12 pm). But we feel that he would probably take on an international role before that.

International Doors Open

So what open opportunities are there? Germany are struggling badly at the moment while Ireland are likely to have a change of manager soon. He will be linked with a move back to France of course, but with PSG motoring along at the top of the table, it’s unlikely that there is going to be a vacancy there anytime soon.

Nor at the national level. If he does go international, you can’t help feel that it would probably be with someone like Japan where there is little pressure and it is somewhere where he has some kind of familiarity with.

Wegner started his managerial career at Nancy before moving on to Monaco. He won the league title with Monaco and with the terrible season they are having (currently in Ligue 1’s bottom three) that is a much more likely fit at 10/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018 at 8:12 pm)
