College Football Season Subscription of Stephen Nover
College presents opportunities that the NFL doesn't where sometimes you can actually find line value. I've beaten the colleges the past three years averaging 57.5 percent while hitting better than 67 percent in the bowls by combining many handicapping factors such as matchup analysis, statistics, history, weather and situational elements. Information is the key because there are just so many teams and conferences on the betting board now. I don't rule out any game or conference. It's a task to find the time to adequately handicap each game. So I'm fortunate that I have many sources to rely on. Many stem from having been a sportswriter/sports editor for daily newspapers in the Midwest, South and West for more than 20 years and having been the sports gaming writer for the Las Vegas Review-Journal for 13 years while also having covered the UNLV football team as the team beat writer for several years. I have the knowledge, experience and resources necessary to win. I've won the past three years and I expect to turn a tidy profit again this season.

Matchup Selection W/L
NBA  |  Oct 19, 2017
Clippers vs. Lakers
-5 -110
  at  5DIMES
in 6h
The Clippers have owned this series winning 11 of the past 12 times with an average winning margin of 13.4 points.  The Lakers are trying to cut the gap stockpiling young talent. But the Clippers remain at least one level higher than the Lakers even without the departed Chris Paul. The Clippers still have star power with Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan.  The Clippers' window of challenging the Warriors has closed with Paul's departure, but they still are a solid playoff contender with a chip on their shoulder to prove they can win without Paul. The Clippers take their games against the Lakers very serious. This certainly won't be an exception.  The storyline here is the NBA debut of Lonzo Ball, who missed most of the preseason because of a sprained ankle. He'll likely be rusty and hounded by defensive ace Patrick Beverley. The Lakers may improve as the season goes on. But right now they are vulnerable to a veteran, motivated team such as the Clippers. Note, too, that the Lakers do not have a home court advantage as both teams use Staples Center as their home court. (Editor's note: Stephen Nover is 16-5 on his last 21 NBA plays going back to last season, including 4-1 this season. Long-term, Stephen has cashed 63 percent of his last 116 NBA premium/free plays going 72-43-1.)

Red Wings vs Maple Leafs
OVER 5½ -115 Won
Play Type: Premium

Given all the rule changes favoring offense and Toronto's fast-paced, top-ranked offense and mediocre defense, it's hard NOT to go over a Leafs game when the total opens less than 6 1/2.  The Maple Leafs are averaging 4.7 goals per game. That's the best in the NHL. Toronto has gone Over in five of its six games.  Toronto averaged 4.2 goals against Detroit in sweeping the Red Wings last season.  Detroit looks improved this season. The Red Wings have a top 12 offense and are averaging four goals a game during their last four matchups.  The Red Wings catch a break, too, in that Toronto is going with backup goalie Curtis McElhinney for the first time this season.

Rockets vs Kings
+8 -110 at GTBets
Play Type: Premium
Sacramento has missed the playoffs for the last 11 seasons. The Kings aren't going to end that playoff drought this season either. But the Kings have better team chemistry and morale after cutting the umblical cord with temperamental DeMarcus Cousins. Sacramento is more team-oriented without their one star  The Kings have a blend of promising young talent go with three veterans that were imported - Zach Randolph, George Hill and Vince Carter. These three are pros who know how to win, play hard and have a lot of pride.  The Kings should be fired-up for their home opener and they catch the Rockets in a prime letdown spot. Houston rallied to upset the Warriors, 122-121, late last night. It's going to be difficult for the Rockets to produce even a "B" level performance against a foe that is hard to take serious. The Rockets also could be looking ahead to their home-opener, which is their next game.

Heat vs Magic
-145 at BMaker
Play Type: Premium
The Heat finished 30-11 last season and begin the season healthy with all of their players back from last season. If it weren't for injuries and a horrendous first half of the season, the Heat would have made the playoffs and maybe even been a post-season factor. Miami has won its last six season openers, including beating the Magic by 12 points last year in its first game.  The Heat are a much superior team to Orlando and have a coaching edge, which has added emphasis in a season-opener when both coaches have had ample time to game plan. Miami covered 63 percent of its away games last season. Orlando is headed for the lottery again. The Heat should challenge Washington for the Southeast Division title. Class difference here and the price is right to get involved.

76ers vs Wizards
+7 -102 at 5Dimes
Play Type: Premium
Memo to oddsmakers: Tank time is over for the 76ers.  Given the 76ers' awesome young talent - all healthy at last - and the horrific injury to Gordon Hayward it wouldn't shock me if the 76ers made a run at the Atlantic Division title this season. Philadelphia finished last season covering 13 of its last 17 road games. The 76ers showed they are serious about winning this season upgrading their bench with veterans J.J. Redick and Amir Johnson to go with Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, Markelle Fultz and Dario Saric.  The Wizards have failed to cover in their last EIGHT season-openers. Their rotation is down Markieff Morris, which hurts their defense that wasn't very good last season. 
Matchup Selection W/L
NBA  |  Oct 18, 2017
Nuggets vs Jazz
-130 at BMaker
Play Type: Premium
Utah finished with the best preseason record in the NBA going 5-0. I see the Jazz in better shape than the Nuggets right now. The Jazz also are home, where they have defeated the Nuggets five consecutive times, including winning two games last season by an average of 16 points.  Not only are the Jazz home, but they are one of the best defensive teams in the league and have a strong bench. This was a team that won 51 games last season. The oddsmaker is down on Utah because the Jazz lost their two leading scorers, Gordon Hayward and George Hill. Hayward, though, was more of a complementary scorer not a top dog while Hill missed a lot of games and because of that could never be counted on. Ricky Rubio is more than capable of being a solid point guard for Utah.  The Nuggets have an underrated front line. But they are going against the best defensive center in basketball, Rudy Gobert.  Denver has a problem at point guard. The Nuggets would like to move away from Emmanuel Mudiay and his poor shooting percentages. They are trying to convert Jamal Murray into a point guard. This key position is a trouble spot for the Nuggets and is likely to hurt them in this matchup.

Wolves vs Spurs
-120 at betonline
Play Type: Top Premium
San Antonio has won the last 11 times these teams have met. Circumstances are different now. The Spurs won't have injured Kawhi Leonard and Minnesota has its best team ever - on paper.  Still, I like the Spurs to defeat the Timberwolves.  Minnesota added Jimmy Butler and Jeff Teague. They join Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins. Both Towns and Wiggins are used to being top dogs in Minnesota and getting their hands on the ball a lot. The dynamics change now with Butler and Teague coming on board. Butler is a top-15 player. Teague is a very offensive-minded point guard. It's going to take time for this group to jell and get in sync. Opening at San Antonio, one of the toughest venues in the NBA, is a rough way to begin. The Timberwolves have yet to show they can play good defense. The Spurs are the best-coached team in the league. They've added Rudy Gay and LaMarcus Aldridge played well in preseason in filling some of the scoring void without Leonard. The Spurs picked up valuable experience playing without Leonard in the Western Conference Finals against the Warriors. This is a step down for them playing the Timberwolves instead of Golden State.
