Free NCAAB Pick: San Diego State vs. UCLA

After months of research, we spent a lot of money getting the best computer simulations, power ratings, and models. Six winners, three Wise Guys, the first two at 1:30 and 2 ET! We have two games covering at least 2/3 of our top simulator. The Wise Guy has other strong models backing it up. The other bet is also a very good contrarian and other models have them as slight leans, but none contradicting these bets. Get the picks now 


  • Malachi Flynn gone, but CS Northridge transfer Terrell Gomez will open court
  • Big chance to beat a Power 5 team
  • One of our top projection models did 10,000 simulations and found SD State covering 67 percent
    • Winning 72-66
  • Another top model has our side covering 55.8 percent almost dead even with State slightly better 
  • Yes UCLA has 5 starters back, but theory those teams get out of gate quicker is false 
  • MasseyRatings has San Diego State by 5
  • KenPom Aztecs winning by one

BALTIMORE +4.5 Pittsburgh

First of all, let me refute claims that home field advantage is out the window. Home teams are better both SU and ATS in 2020 than they were last year. Though we agree HFA is about two-points this year rather than three, we have an undefeated team against a team that is 6-4 SU. When we have an inferior road team based on SU record yet not a large underdogthe road team is 147-83-7 ATS. We have a similar angle that has to do with difference in wins, yet spread implies they are much more evenly matched it 165-107-7. Baltimore has lost two straight and obviously Pittsburgh has won 10 in a row. However, when teams are in opposite streaks, going with colder team is 75-44-2 under specific situations. It’s 58-28 for 67.4 percent when the net difference is 12 or better (Pittsburgh +10, Baltimore -2 game streak). Road teams in revenge under specific situations is 315-256-12.

NBA Draft Odds 2020: laMelo ball top pick and more

LaMelo Ball is the odds-on favorite to be selected first overall during Wednesday’s draft, but what are the chances we see his dad on TV pushing the family brand?

Pretty good, according to some fun NBA Draft props provided by SportsBetting. This year’s draft is virtual, and after what we saw with the NFL’s version, anything could happen. 

Along with the traditional draft props, there are odds on which members of the Ball family will be seen, who the No. 1 pick will hug first, how many cats or dogs will be shown and much more.

As far as trades, there is a 93.8% chance a deal will be made during the first 10 picks, according to the odds. An over/under of 6.5 trades has been set as the Draft Day total.

Nets championship odds skyrocket

When the latest #WojBomb dropped, bettors and bookmakers reacted.

At SportsBetting the Nets’ championship odds for the upcoming season went from 10/1 to 7/1 after large bets came in on Brooklyn following the report that James Harden could be joining Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. 

The move seems unlikely given the complexity of shedding enough players and cap space, but still, the sportsbook said it has to be careful just in case the next super team is formed. 

“We’re busy trading the NFL today, and then all of the sudden the NBA futures board starts lighting up with Nets bets,” Lenny Estrin, head linesman at SportsBetting said. “We took a significant amount of money on the Nets before we could change the odds. These reports normally never pan out, but we still have to limit our liability so we moved them down the list.”

The Nets have the same odds (13-2 or +650) as the Warriors, and they are the favorites to take the East with 5-2 odds. Milwaukee is second on the conference odds board.

On the other side of this coin, Houston has seen its title odds tumble. 

During the last week, the Rockets’ Finals odds went from 20-1 to 28-1. Their odds to win the Western Conference dropped from 12-1 to 14-1.
