Jack’s Free Pick Sunday: Arizona Cardinals +4 

The Arizona Cardinals continue to fight despite their gloomy playoff outlook.  They have won two of their last three games against two current playoff teams in Jacksonville and Tennessee.  And they hanged the game to the Rams in what was a much closer game than the 32-16 final would indicate. 

The thing you can count on with the Cardinals is that they will bring it defensively.  Their numbers on that side of the ball over the past three games have been outstanding.  They are giving up just 242.0 yards per game and 3.9 yards per play in their last three games overall. 

The Redskins can’t be laying any kind of price against the Cardinals here with the way they are playing right now.  They are coming off back-to-back blowout road losses by 24 to Dallas and by 17 to the Chargers.  They even had a pick-6 late in that San Diego game to get their only touchdown of the game. 

The laundry list of injuries is what has derailed Washington’s season.  They are banged up along the offensive line, at the key skill positions, and all along the front seven defensively.  They just haven’t caught any breaks in the injury department this season. 

While the Cardinals do play defense, the same cannot be said for the Redskins.  This is a Washington team that has allowed at least 30 points in six of its last eight games overall.  Blaine Gabbert has arguably been the best quarterback on Arizona’s roster and is good enough to take advantage of this soft Washington defense. 

Washington is 32-52 ATS in its last 84 games as a favorite of 3.5 to 9.5 points.  The Redskins are 14-28 ATS in their last 42 games as a home favorite of 3.5 to 7 points.  The Cardinals are 14-5 ATS in their last 19 road games vs. a team with a losing home record.  Washington is 11-28-2 ATS in its last 41 home games vs. a team with a losing record. 

Plays against home favorites of 3.5 to 10 points (Washington) With a poor scoring defense, allowing 24 or more points per game, after a loss by 10 points or more are 33-11 (75%) ATS over the last 10 seasons.  Arizona is 4-1-1 ATS in its last six meetings with Washington.  Bet the Cardinals Sunday.

15* Oklahoma/Wichita State CBB No-Brainer on Wichita State -7.5 

The Wichita State Shockers are ranked No. 3 in the country thanks to their 8-1 start and their five returning starters from last year.  They have played the gauntlet, facing the likes of Cal, Marquette, Notre Dame, Baylor and Oklahoma State with all five of those games either on a neutral or on the road. 

Now they get Oklahoma at home in one of the most hostile arenas in college basketball.  And I think this Oklahoma team is way overrated and doesn’t have a real good victory to its name yet.  USC and Oregon are both down, and they lost tot he best team they have faced in Arkansas 83-92.   

Now the Shockers will be the best team they have played yet, and it will actually be their first true road game of the season.  I don’t expect this young Sooners team led by freshman Trae Young to be able to handle this situation very well at all. 

Oklahoma is 0-8 ATS off two or more consecutive wins over the last two seasons.  The Sooners are 1-9 ATS after scoring 75 points or more in five straight games over the last three seasons.  The Shockers are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 home games.  Roll with Wichita State Saturday.

Mavs vs Spurs
UNDER 198 -103 Won

Play Type: Premium

15* NBA Saturday Total DOMINATOR on Mavs/Spurs UNDER 198 

I love betting the UNDER in this spot.  The Mavs and Spurs just played each other on Tuesday with the Mavs winning 95-89 at home.  So these teams are very familiar with one another, and now they’ll be playing each other just five days later.  This situation always favors the defenses and the UNDER. 

This has been a low-scoring series between the Mavs and Spurs anyway.  They have combined for 191 or fewer points in six of their last eight meetings.  They have averaged just 193.4 combined points per game in those eight meetings, which is roughly 5 points less than tonight’s posted total of 198. 

The Spurs will be without their best player in Kawhi Leonard as he gets a night of rest in this back-to-back situation.  The Mavs will be without starting point guard Dennis Smith Jr., who is arguably their best player and scorer as well.  These injuries will help aid this UNDER. 

The UNDER is 13-3-1 in Mavs last 17 Saturday games.  The UNDER is 8-2 in Mavs last 10 vs. Western Conference.  The UNDER is 8-1 in Spurs last nine when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game.  Take the UNDER in this game Saturday.

15* NBA Saturday UPSET SHOCKER on New York Knicks +3 

The Oklahoma City Thunder just played a triple-overtime game against the Philadelphia 76ers last night.  It’s safe to say they won’t have anything left in the tank today, especially since all five starters played basically the entire 15 minutes of overtime.  Russell Westbrook played 52 minutes, Steven Adams 51, Paul George 45, Carmelo Anthony 47 and Andre Roberson 34. 

The Knicks will be motivated for the Anthony reunion to prove that they are a better team without him.  They will also be rested after having yesterday off.  The Knicks are 13-5 SU & 13-5 ATS at home this season, outscoring opponents by 6.5 points per game on average.  They have been one of the most profitable teams to bet at home this season. 

Plays against all teams where the line is +3 to -3 (Oklahoma City) - off a road win by 3 points or less, when playing the 2nd of a back-to-back are 25-5 (83.3%) ATS over the last five seasons.  The Thunder are 2-9 ATS in their last 11 road games, and 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games overall.  The Knicks are 7-1 ATS in their last eight vs. Western Conference foes.  Bet the Knicks Saturday.

Jack’s Free Pick Saturday: Colorado State -3.5 

The Colorado State Rams were expected to compete for a Mountain West title this season with all they had returning.  But they failed to live up to expectations.  They went just 7-5 in the regular season for a third consecutive year, and now Mike Bobo’s job is perhaps on the line. 

There’s no question the Rams will be motivated.  They have lost three straight bowl games overall, including the last two in the favorite role.  They lost as 15-point favorites to Idaho last year as they failed to show up.  This senior-laden team will want to get their first taste of a bowl victory in this one. 

I also think Colorado State is undervalued after losing three of its final four games to close out the season. But one of those losses was a 52-59 (OT) loss to Boise State in which they blew a 24-point lead.  That 52-point effort just shows the kind of firepower this offense has against a very good Boise State defense. 

Senior QB Nick Stevens wants to try to impress NFL scouts one last time.  He leads a potent Colorado State offense that will be the best unit on the field Saturday.  The Rams average 501 yards per game and 6.7 per play.  They have a balanced attack with 211 rushing yards per game and 5.2 per carry, as well as 290 passing yards per game and 8.5 per attempt.  I believe they simply outscore Marshall here. 

I also like the fact that Colorado State is familiar with the field for the New Mexico Bowl.  The Rams beat the Lobos 27-24 in New Mexico earlier this season.  They are used to the altitude, while Marshall is not.  They will also have a lot more fans there as it’s a much shorter trip for Colorado State fans than Marshall fans. 

Marshall feasted on an easy early schedule to get off to a 6-1 start.  But the Thundering Herd came back down to earth down the stretch against some better competition.  They went just 1-4 in their final five games.  Now they have a laundry list of injuries and possible suspensions, most notably on the offensive and defensive lines. 

The Thundering Herd have a poor offense and won’t be able to keep up.  They average just 370 yards per game and 5.3 yards per play.  They do have a good defense, but they haven’t seen many offenses as potent as Colorado State this season. 

The Rams are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games vs. a team with a winning record.  Colorado State is 16-6-1 ATS in its last 23 non-conference games.  We are getting the better team here in the Rams at just over a field goal, and they’ll be highly motivated while also playing in familiar surroundings.  Bet Colorado State Saturday.

20* North Texas/Troy 2017 Bowl Season Opener on Troy -6.5 

The Troy Trojans are 10-2 this season.  Their only losses came to Boise State and South Alabama.  The Boise State loss was on the road and they were in it the entire way, and the South Alabama loss was a letdown spot following the biggest win in program history at LSU the previous week.  Both losses were understandable. 

This is a Troy team that is loaded with seniors.  They will be motivated to win their 11th game and end their careers on top with a win in the New Orleans Bowl.  And I certainly believe they are far and away the better team in this matchup with North Texas. 

This is a North Texas team that was extremely fortunate to post a 9-4 record this year.  The Mean Green went 5-0 in games decided by a touchdown or less.  Every time they took a step up in class, they were blown out, and this is a step up as well.  They lost by 22 at SMU, by 17 at Iowa, by 38 at Florida Atlantic and by 24 to FAU in the C-USA Championship.  They trailed that game 34-0 before getting some garbage time scores. 

Since that loss to South Alabama, Troy has gone 6-0 with five of those wins coming by 7 points or more.  They are playing well and will be the superior team at the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball.  They give up just 3.0 yards per carry on defense, and they average 4.8 yards per carry on offense. 

North Texas hasn’t been able to run the ball since losing arguably their best player in running back Jeffery Wilson.  He was hurt in the Army game in their 11th game of the season.  Wilson has rushed for 1,215 yards and accounted for 16 total touchdowns.  The Mean Green managed just 81 rushing yards on 35 carries against Florida Atlantic in the C-USA title game.  They are one-dimensional now, which will make the task much easier for Troy in this game. 

Another big difference in this game is on the defensive side of the ball.  Troy has one of the better defenses in the country, giving up just 17.5 points per game and 4.9 yards per play on the season.  North Texas is one of the worst defensive teams, giving up 33.8 points pre game and 5.9 yards per play.  That’s more than a 16-point difference. 

The Trojans have a coaching edge in this game.  Troy defensive coordinator Vic Koenning held the same title at North Carolina when North Texas head coach Seth Littrell was the offensive coordinator of the Tar Heels.  The Trojans will be prepared for what they’re going to face defensively Saturday. 

"He's a really good friend of mine. I respect what he's done," Brown said of Littrell. "Vic's got an understanding of who Seth is and what he's about.”

"I really like what those guys do on offense, so I've watched them quite a bit as the years have gone on," Brown said of North Texas. "I've got a good feel for what they're trying to do offensively. The Fine kid ... they recruited him hard here at Troy. He's doing a really good job."

Plays on neutral field favorites (Troy) after allowing 8 or more yards per passing attempt last game, with 8 offensive starters returning are 23-4 (85.2%) ATS since 1992.  North Texas is 1-9 ATS in road games vs. good passing teams with a completion percentage of 58% or better over the last three seasons.  The Mean Green are 3-13 ATS in their last 16 road games vs. good offensive teams that average 5.9 or more yards per play.  Neal Brown is 13-3 ATS in Saturday road games as the coach of Troy.  The Trojans are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games vs. at team with a winning record.  Bet Troy in the New Orleans Bowl Saturday.

20* Bears/Lions NFC North GAME OF THE MONTH on Chicago +6 

The Chicago Bears have played nine straight games with Mitchell Trubisky as their starting quarterback.  They have only lost one game by more than 8 points, and that came on the road against the juggernaut that is the Philadelphia Eagles.  So they have been competitive in eight of their nine games.  And now they are catching 6 points on the road against the Detroit Lions this week. 

Trubisky is coming off his best game of the season.  He completed 25-of-32 passes for 271 yards and a touchdown, while also rushing for a score in a 33-7 win at Cincinnati as 6-point dogs.  The Bears also rushed for 232 yards as a team and racked up a season-high 482 yards in the win. 

Another one of the Bears’ best offensive performances this year came a few weeks ago on November 19th in a 24-27 home loss to the Detroit Lions.  The Bears actually outgunned the Lions 398 to 352 in that contest and arguably should have won.  They rushed for 222 yards on that Lions defense.  Now they will want revenge only a few weeks later, and I think they have a great chance to pull the upset as the offense continues to click against an awful Detroit defense. 

The Lions aren’t the type of team used to blowing teams out, which is what it’s going to take to cover this 6-point spread.  And their defense is not good enough to be favored this heavily.  The Lions rank 27th in the NFL in total defense, giving up 363.3 yards per game and 5.7 yards per play.  They needed five turnovers last week just to beat the hapless Bucs 24-21. 

What makes the Bears so underrated is that their defense is very good, and they have a strong running game.  The Bears rank 11th in the NFL in total defense, giving up just 325.5 yards per game and 5.1 yards per play.  They rank 7th in rushing offense, averaging 124.5 rushing yards per game and 4.5 per carry.  The Lions are 20th against the run, giving up 116.3 yards per game and 4.2 per carry.  They have allowed an average of 158.6 rushing yards per game in their last five contests. 

This head-to-head series has been extremely tight in recent meetings.  In fact, each of the last six meetings between the Lions and Bears have been decided by 6 points or fewer.  Each of the last five have been decided by 4 points or less.  That fact alone just shows the kind of line value we are getting with the Bears catching 6 points here Saturday. 

Detroit is 29-51 ATS in its last 80 games as a favorite of 3.5 to 9.5 points.  Plays against home favorites of 3.5 to 10 points (Detroit) after a game where they forced 5 or more turnovers against an opponent off a game where they committed no turnovers are 23-5 (82.1%) ATS since 1983.  Bet the Bears Saturday.
