Matchup Selection W/L
NBA  |  Dec 19, 2014
Los Angeles Clippers vs. Denver Nuggets
Denver Nuggets
  at  5DIMES
Play Type: Premium

Los Angeles is 14-4 over their last 18 games.  The Clippers have won ten of those games by double digits while going 11-3 ATS in their fourteen wins.  However, as impressive as that is, it’s also unsustainable, and we’ve seen some regression in their play over the last few games.  The Clippers are just 2-2 SU over their last four games with one of those wins coming by just 2 points over a shorthanded Indiana team.  This is a bad spot for the Clippers as well as they are making a one-game road trip to Denver, and a trip to the Rockies is not easy from Los Angeles.  The Clippers will have to fly right back as they host Milwaukee tomorrow night.  Head coach Doc Rivers hinted at resting his players, especially since the Clippers are playing their sixth game in ten days.  

Denver has lost three straight games, and seven of their last eight games overall.  However, four of those games were on the road, and they were also playing without Kenneth Faried and Danilo Gallinari.  Both of those guys returned on Wednesday night, and Denver played much better even though they lost 115-111 in overtime to Houston.  The Nuggets are playing their third straight home game, and since they’ve lost the last two, we expect a strong effort tonight.  The home team has dominated this series, winning seven consecutive meetings and eight of the last nine overall.  The Nuggets are averaging 106.2 points per game at home this season, and they will score easily on a Los Angeles defense that is allowing 100.3 points per game on 46.4% shooting from the field and 35.3% shooting from three-point land on the road this season.  We’ll take the points with Denver in this game on Friday night.  

10* Play NUGGETS (+).

Matchup Selection W/L
NCAA-B  |  Dec 20, 2014
Northern Iowa vs. Iowa
Northern Iowa
Play Type: Premium

This game will be played on a neutral floor, so neither team will have the home court edge.  Northern Iowa and Iowa both come into this game off losses, so we can expect good efforts by both teams.  Northern Iowa is 9-1 on the season, and a big part of that success has been the Panthers getting back to their slow and defensive ways.  Northern Iowa tried to play a different style of basketball over the last couple of seasons, and it simply didn’t work out.  But head coach Ben Jacobson reverted back to the old ways, and the results have been terrific.  Northern Iowa plays at an extremely slow pace while suffocating their opponents with defense in the half court.  The Panthers are allowing just 59 points per game this season.  Northern Iowa has held nine of their ten opponents to 70 points or less in regulation time this season.   

Iowa is a team that needs to play at a fast pace to be at their best.  The Hawkeyes have struggled mightily with their half court offense this season, so this is not a good match-up for them at all.  Northern Iowa routinely plays in games that have less than 60 total possessions; Iowa has yet to play in such a game this season.  Iowa has scored less than 70 points in three games against power conference teams this season.  The Hawkeyes went just 1-2 SU in those games with the win coming by just 5 points over North Carolina.  That was a strange game considering the Tar Heels also play at a fast pace, so the slow-paced win can be discounted.  We expect Northern Iowa to slow this game to a crawl, so we’ll take the points with the Panthers on Saturday night. 

9* Play NORTHERN IOWA (+).

Matchup Selection W/L
NBA  |  Dec 20, 2014
Atlanta Hawks vs. Houston Rockets
Houston Rockets
Play Type: Premium

Atlanta comes into this game off one of the biggest wins in the NBA this season.  The Hawks crushed the Cavaliers in Cleveland by 29 points (127-98) on Wednesday night, and that game has been the talk for the last couple of days.  That’s not a good thing for Atlanta, and because of it, we expect a big regression tonight in Houston.  The Hawks shot an incredible 64.5% (49-76) from the field and 57.1% (16-28) from three-point land.  They also hit 81.2% (13-16) of their free throws.  Seven players scored 10 points or more, including three players on the second unit.  Atlanta played a perfect game, and it’s highly unlikely the Hawks will repeat a performance like that this season.  It should be noted that the team was without arguably their best player and point guard Jeff Teague; he will miss tonight’s game as well.    

Houston lost 99-90 at home to New Orleans on Thursday night.  However, the Rockets were in a tough spot for that game as they just won in overtime in Denver the night before.  We can easily excuse that loss by Houston, and we expect a strong bounce back performance tonight, especially since they are playing on their home court once again.  The Rockets’ offense was terrible in that loss as they shot just 38.4% (33-86) from the field and 24% (6-25) from three-point land.  Houston will be more efficient tonight considering they’ll be facing an Atlanta defense that is allowing 100.5 points per game on 46.2% shooting from the field and 35.2% shooting from three-point land on the road this season.  Houston is the better team in the better spot, so we’ll lay the points in this game on Saturday night. 

9* Play ROCKETS (-).

Matchup Selection W/L
NCAA-F  |  Dec 20, 2014
South Alabama vs. Bowling Green
South Alabama
Play Type: Premium

Bowling Green is one of the worst teams to make a bowl game this season.  The Falcons come into this game in a tailspin as they’ve lost three straight games, and four of their last six games overall.  Bowling Green has been dreadful versus the point spread; they are just 2-7-1 ATS over their last ten games.  Normally, teams like Bowling Green present some value because of their recent results, but that’s not the case at all here.  My power ratings have South Alabama as a 3.5-point favorite, and since this line is currently less than 3, the oddsmakers did not inflate the spread at all despite Bowling Green’s poor current form.  The Falcons have underperformed on both sides of the ball this season.  Bowling Green is averaging just 5.5 yards per play versus defenses that allow 5.8 yards per play.  On defense, the Falcons are giving up 33.9 points per game on 6.0 yards per play versus offenses that are averaging 27.9 points per game on 5.7 yards per play.         

South Alabama is playing in their first bowl game, and they get to stay in state which gives them a huge site advantage for this game.  The Jaguars are no world beaters by any stretch of the imagination, but they are much more motivated to play in this game than Bowling Green.  The Jaguars have played good defense this season, so they also hold a defensive edge over the Falcons.  Overall, South Alabama is giving up 25.8 points per game on 5.6 yards per play versus opponents averaging 30.4 points per game on 6.0 yards per play.  The Jaguars’ defense has actually been better away from home where they are giving up 24.2 points per game on just 5.2 yards per play.  South Alabama is set for a big effort in what essentially is a home game, so we’ll lay the points with the Jaguars in this game on Saturday night.      

9* Play SOUTH ALABAMA (-).

NFL  |  Dec 20, 2014
San Diego Chargers vs. San Francisco 49ers
San Diego Chargers
Play Type: Premium

San Diego has played good football since coming off their bye.  The Chargers are 3-2 with their two losses coming at home against the Patriots and Broncos who are a combined 22-6 on the season.  Going out on the road is a good thing for the Chargers right now, and we expect a strong bounce back effort in this game, especially since they are taking a big step-down in class.  San Diego’s offense has played above average football this season.  The Chargers are averaging 5.6 yards per play versus defenses that are allowing 5.4 yards per play.  San Diego’s offense will be facing a San Francisco defense that is not in good current form right now.  The 49ers have allowed 5.9 yards per play over their last three games which is in sharp decline from their seasonal average of 5.3 yards per play. 

San Francisco has lost three consecutive games, and the wheels seem to be coming off this team.  The 49ers’ offense has struggled all season long, and their backfield is in flux with Frank Gore suffering a concussion last week and Carlos Hyde out of this game with an ankle and back injury.  Overall, San Francisco’s offense is averaging just 17.9 points per game on 5.3 yards per play versus defenses that allow 22.6 points per game on 5.7 yards per play.  The 49ers will face a solid San Diego defense that is only giving up 21 points per game on 5.6 yards per play.  The Chargers have a better defense than the average opponent San Francisco has played this season.  San Diego is simply the better team, so we’ll back the Chargers in this game on Saturday night. 

10* Play CHARGERS (+).
