Ricky's 7* play on the Bulldogs

Key Angle: It's important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. Here in this game the recent history of these two teams is particularly significant.

- The Bulldogs have won by 20+ in three of their last four games.

- The Bulldogs rank 2nd nationally scoring over 96 points per game.

- The Bulldogs are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games following an ATS loss.

Verdict: The Gaels have lost six of seven to Gonzaga, all by double digits.

L.A. Rams at Green Bay 4:35 ET

Rams/Packers UNDER- Rams are one thing and that is defense...No. 1 in the NFL allowing just 18.5 ppg while the Packers lead the NFL in scoring at 31.8 ppg. This is going to be a huge challenge for both sides as Aaron Rodgers in pitted against the No. 1 pass defense allowing just 190 yard a game through the air and only 91 yards rpg. Green Bay is OVER 5-0 last five playoff games and OVER 7-3 as favorites...but not today! Play UNDER!

Play on: Packers -6½ -105 at pinnacle
Game Analysis

This is a Free play on the Packers.

The Rams own the NFL's #1 ranked defense, and they are coming off a massive road win in Seattle on Wild Card Weekend. They say that defense wins Championships, but in the current era it seems that elite quarterbacks win Championships. I am not sure that there is a defense for Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams. Then there is Aaron Jones who averages 5.5 yards per carry. Jared Goff threw for 119 yards on 9-of-19 passing in the win over Seattle last week, and he's still banged up with a thumb injury. He's not ready to go head to head against a bad man like A-Aron Rodgers.

NCAA-B | Syracuse vs Pittsburgh
Play on: Syracuse -4½ -110 at Mirage
Game Analysis

PICK - Syracuse Orange -4.5
RATING: 30*
ROT#: 605

I will lay the short number with the Orange on the road against the Panthers in Saturday's early ACC showdown. Syracuse won't have any trouble finding motivation for this game. Not only are the Orange coming off a loss at UNC, Pitt won the earlier meeting with these two teams in New York. It's the only home loss for Syracuse this season. 

Not only that, the Orange lost that first meeting despite leading 30-12 with less than 5 minutes to play in the 1st half. Syracuse just didn't come out in the 2nd half with the right mindset. They went from allowing a mere 18 first half points to giving up 45 in the 2nd half. 

I look for Syracuse to come out strong in this one and never take the foot off the gas. Orange have been a good bet on the road in ACC play, as they are 17-6 ATS last 23 on the road in conference play. They are also a perfect 6-0 ATS over the last 2 seasons in road games when revenging a loss and have won in this spot by an average of 10 ppg. Give me Syracuse -4.5!

NCAA-B | San Diego State vs Utah State
Play on: San Diego State +4 -109 at Draft Kings
Game Analysis

#625 ASA FREE PLAY ON San Diego State +4 over Utah State, Saturday at 1:30 PM ET - We always like considering good teams off losses and that’s what we have here. Not only did SDSU lose on Thursday night, they lost to this Utah State team. The Aztecs lost by 12 in that Thursday loss but shot terribly at 31% making only 17 of their 54 shot attempts. They are one of the better 3-point shooting teams in the nation (36th) but only mad 24% of their shots from beyond the arc in that loss. It was their worst offensive outing of the year by a wide margin. Earlier in the season they were in a similar situation losing to Colorado State on the road on a Saturday and then beating them by 13 just 2 days later. We were on SDSU on that game and expect a similar outcome here. Utah State is a solid 10-3 on the year however Thursday was their first win over a top 100 opponent. The 3 other top 100 opponents they had faced before Thursday (VCU, BYU, and South Dakota State) all resulted in losses with 2 of those setbacks coming by double digits. Beyond those game, plus their game vs San Diego State, the Aggies haven’t faced a single team ranked inside the top 200. Utah State was favored by just 1 point on Thursday and now they are laying 3.5 here which we feel is a bad number. San Diego State has been solid bounce back team covering 8 of their last 10 off a loss including both games following their 2 losses this year prior to Thursday. We like SDSU to win this one outright.

NBA | Hawks vs Blazers
Play on: Blazers -4 -109 at pinnacle
Game Analysis

The set-up: I think the Blazers are the correct call here, as I expect the Hawks to come in flat-footed here after their loss in Utah just last night. The Blazers on the other hand have had a night off to absorb a poor 111-87 home defeat to the Pacers and I look for a much better effort here in this very favorable matchup. 

The pick: Both teams are dealing with injury issues, but the backcourt of Lillard and McCollum will just be too much for this young Hawks team to deal with in the second game of the back-to-back scenario, as note that Atlanta has indeed struggled in this spot for bettors, going just 2-7 ATS in its last nine road games after failing to score 100 points in a SU/ATS loss in its previous game and playing on no rest. Consider Portland on Saturday night.

This is a 1* FREE PLAY on the Blazers.

Saturday card has the 2021 NFL Playoff Game of the Year with a 24-1 system and a 6* Early Total. In Hoops we have a Powerful NCAAB Card with a Big Platinum Supreme move and NBA. NHL Comp play below.

The NHL Comp play for Saturday is on the NY. Rangers at 7:05 eastern. The Rangers have right back home loss shutout revenge here tonight against the cross town Rival NY. Islanders who won the opener here 4-0 on Thursday. The Rangers fit a game 2 specific bounce back system. The Islanders left off with some negative indicators last season going 0-4 off a win and losing 9 of 12 on Saturdays as well as dropping 7 of 10 with 1 day of rest. Look for a more spirited effort from a Ranger team that wont want to drop 2 straight divisional home games. For the Comp play Play on the NYR. Rob V- GC Sports

Play on: Florida State -3½ -110 at Mirage
Game Analysis

North Carolina vs Florida State Free Pick January 16, 2021

The Florida State Seminoles have played only one game in 2021 but showed no signs of rust when they put a 105-73 beating on NC State on Wednesday. 

I like them to keep rolling here against a North Carolina team that might be riding a three-game winning streak, but it had failed to cover the number in four straight games prior to an 81-75 win over Syracuse last time out. The Tar Heels earned the win, but they were not shooting the ball well at all, making only 40% of their shots from the field overall and 21% from behind the arc. 

Tar Heels are 6-15-1 ATS in their last 22 games following a straight up win.

Free pick on Florida State.

NFL | Browns vs Chiefs
Play on: Browns +10 -110 at all
Game Analysis

305 Cleveland at Kansas City

When the Browns had a 28-0 lead, sports books started putting up the lookahead line. It was KC -7 ½. After the Steelers had their big comeback against a prevent defense the line is now 10. This number is partially set for 7 point teaser protection. The number three is the biggest key number in the NFL. At -9 ½ Chiefs backers would be loading up to get this line under a field goal.

The Browns have an explosive running attack, which is the weakness of this Kansas City defense. Cleveland should be able to keep this close by matching Kansas City on the scoreboard. We expect this to be the highpoint for this number. If you like the underdog grab it now.

UCLA -14.5

The Bruins are worthy of a flyer on Saturday. This is more of a fade Washington play. The Huskies are just awful this year, going 1-10 and have been getting blown out. UCLA comes in off a 30 point win as they are rolling over teams. Look for that to continue here.

Good Luck, Razor Ray.

NHL | Maple Leafs vs Senators
Play on: Maple Leafs -1½ +121 at pinnacle
Game Analysis

The Senators finished 30th out of 31 teams last season. The Maple Leafs have the talent to seriously contend for the Stanley Cup. 

 Maturity, not talent, is the question regarding Toronto.  The Maple Leafs opened with a narrow home victory against Montreal in overtime, overcoming a two goal deficit lead. Toronto then took an early lead against the supposedly hapless Senators last night. The Maple Leafs, apparently overconfident and full of themselves, proceeded to get thoroughly outplayed giving up three goals during the final 10:30 of the second period in a 5-3 loss.  Fredrik Andersen didn't play well in net. Neither did defenseman Morgan Reilly, nor Auston Matthews who was minus three during his time of the ice. Now the specter of getting swept by the Senators during the opening weekend of the season lurks for the Maple Leafs. So expect a much more determined effort by the Maple Leafs - both physically and mentally. Andersen is likely to be replaced by Jack Campbell in net for this game. Reilly is primed for a big season and Matthews is in the argument for best player in the NHL.  Ottawa looks improved with nine new faces making their Senators debut last night, including former Penguins goalie Matt Murray. It's going to take the Senators a while to jell without a preseason for their many new teammates, though. They pulled their upset surprise Friday. I don't see it happening again today. Neither does the oddsmaker making the Maple Leafs such a heavy favorite. So I'm going with the puck line, laying 1 1/2 goals, to turn this line into a plus profit in the belief this is a kill spot for Toronto.  (Editor's note: Stephen Nover is 48-28-1 o his last 77 NBA premium plays, 160-108-5 on his college basketball plays the past three seasons and is on a 19-11-2 NFL run going for his 24th winning NFL season in 27 years. But Stephen also is a highly respected hockey handicapper. Stephen is going for his fifth straight winning NHL season. He is out of the gate fast this year going 4-1 the past two days, including cashing a plus $1.72 winner on the Avalanche on the puck line last night. There is tremendous value right now during the first week of the season - and Stephen is fully on top of it.)

NBA | Rockets vs Spurs
Play on: Spurs -6½ -110 at Draft Kings
Game Analysis

Saturday NBA Free play. My selection is on San Antonio minus the points over Houston at 5:05 pm et on Saturday.

The Spurs got caught flat-footed against the new-look Rockets on Thursday night, perhaps overlooking Houston following the blockbuster trade involving James Harden. Here, I look for a far more focused effort from San Antonio as it looks to bounce back on its home floor. Meanwhile, we can't expect the Rockets to bring that same level of intensity and cohesion we saw on Thursday every night. Say what you want about the return they got in the Harden deal but the fact is, they're no longer true contenders in the crowded Western Conference - at least not this season. We did win with the Spurs earlier this week in their much-needed victory in Oklahoma City. If they were to drop a second straight game to the Rockets at home that 'W' would have been all for not. This is a step-up spot for San Antonio and I'm confident it will do just that. Take San Antonio (8*).
