At 8:05 pm, our selection is on the Calgary Flames over Vancouver.  The Flames lost at home last night, 2-0, to Nashville.  And that was the third straight defeat for Calgary after it bested these Canucks, 4-2, back on December 9.  I look for the Flames to once again triumph over Vancouver, as the Flames are a solid 21-9 after not scoring 2+ goals in their previous game.  And they're also a solid 8-3 off back to back home losses.  Vancouver, meanwhile, is an awful 27-47 off a win, including 3-12 off a home win, in which it scored more than three goals.  Take the Flames. NHL High Roller Winner.  Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.

At 6:05 pm, our selection is on the Winnipeg Jets over the St. Louis Blues.  The Blues beat the Jets last night, 2-0 as both teams played their back-up goaltenders in that game.  For the Blues, Carter Hutton made his first appearance in five games as he has been ailing with a lower body injury.  He added to his stellar record (4-2 with a 1.90 GAA in seven games - six starts) with his shutout at home.  The Jets meanwhile welcomed back their #2 net-minder, Steve Mason, who had been sidelined since the end of November with a concussion he suffered against the San Jose Sharks.  Although they lost, Mason didn't play badly considering the nature of his injury and the time he's missed, and the Jets dominated play on the ice other than on the scoreboard, out-shooting the Blues by a lopsided 48-30.  You could certainly argue that Hutton is just as good as St. Louis' #1 goalie, Jake Allen who will get the start tonight opposite Winnipeg's #1 Connor Hellebuyck (who has been very solid).  Prior to last night's loss the Jets had won six straight meetings against the Blues, and I look for them to resume their winning ways in this series tonight.  Take Winnipeg. NHL Elite Info Play. As always, good luck...Al McMordie.

At 6:05 pm, our selection is on the Washington Wizards over the Cleveland Cavaliers.  The Cavaliers won at home last night, 109-100, over the Utah Jazz.  And that was Cleveland's 17th win in its last 18 games.  We actually had a big play against Cleveland in the one game it lost over this stretch, and that was when it played at Indiana nine days ago.  One of the reasons I loved Indiana was that Cleveland's gaudy record, of late, is primarily due to a very soft schedule.  Indeed, of the Cavs' 17 wins, only 3 have come against teams with an average margin of victory greater than 0.  And the most difficult road game was the one at Indiana, and Cleveland failed that test.  Sunday's game at Washington will also be a staunch test for the Cavs, as it comes on the heels of a game last night.  This will be Cleveland's second road game this season when it had to play without rest.  The other game was at Brooklyn back on October 25, which followed a home game vs. Chicago.  Not surprisingly, Cleveland was upset by the Nets, 112-107, as an 8-point favorite.  The Cavs are a dreadful 1-15 ATS their last 16 when playing on the road without rest, if they're off back-to-back wins!  Take Washington over the Cavs.  NBA Roadkill Winner.  Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.

At 2 pm, our selection is on the Vanderbilt Commodores + the points over Arizona State.  The Sun Devils come into this game off an upset win last week at Kansas.  That extended ASU's streak to start the season to 9-0 straight-up and 8-0 ATS. In contrast, the Commodores are 3-6 this season, and 0-8 ATS.  Thus, this is the rarest of games with respect to two teams going in opposite directions against the spread.  Indeed, my basketball database goes back to 1990.  There have been 78,660 games played over the past 28 years (with pointspreads), including 61,176 games played where each team had at least eight games under its belt, and it has NEVER before happened that one team had been on an 8-game ATS win streak, while its opponent was on an 8-game ATS losing streak!  Of course, one thing that isn't quite rare is a team, by itself, going on a 5-game ATS losing streak.  And such teams have actually done quite well as double-digit road underdogs when matched up against foes off back to back SU/ATS wins.  Since 1990, they've covered 66%.  Even worse for the Sun Devils:  they're a horrid 15-39 ATS off an upset win since February 2001.  Take Vanderbilt + the points.  NCAA Game of the Month.  Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.

At 1 pm, our selection is on the Washington Redskins minus the points over Arizona.  The Redskins return home off back to back road losses at Dallas, and at the Chargers.  Meanwhile, the Cardinals are off an upset win over Tennessee.  But .260 (or better) teams have gone 48-22 ATS off back to back road losses, when matched up against foes off upset wins.  Take Washington.  Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.

At 1 pm, our selection is on the New York Giants + the points over the Philadelphia Eagles.  Certainly, Philadelphia caught a tough break last week when its 1st string quarterback, Carson Wentz, was lost to injury for the remainder of the season.  So, now, the Eagles will turn to their 2nd string QB, Nick Foles.  Interestingly, the NFC’s top two teams — Minnesota and Philadelphia — both have backup quarterbacks as their starter, so it may be premature to shovel dirt on the Eagles’ grave, as the Vikings are clearly proving that you can have extreme success with a back-up QB.  That being said, I’m still going to take the points with the New York Giants on Sunday.  One reason is that this will be the Eagles’ third straight road game.  And NFL teams are a wallet-busting 71-121 ATS when playing their 3rd straight road game, provided they’re not off back to back losses in the previous two.  That bodes well for the Giants.  As does the fact that home underdogs (or PK) are 169-123 ATS at Week 14 forward, if they’re off a SU/ATS loss.  Take New York.

At 8:30 pm, our selection is on the Oakland Raiders + the points over Dallas, as Oakland falls into a 124-55 ATS system of mine which plays on certain underdogs.  Dallas does come into this game off back to back blowout wins, as it defeated Washington, 38-14, two weeks ago.  And it smashed the Giants, 30-10, last Sunday.  Unfortunately for the Cowboys, unrested NFL road teams off back to back SU/ATS wins, in which they scored 30+ points in each game, have gone 121-162 ATS.  That doesn't bode well for the Cowboys at Oakland.  And neither does the fact that, late in the season, NFL home underdogs have excelled, as they've cashed 57.4% off a straight-up loss, at Week 14 forward.  Finally, Dallas is 7-6 SU/ATS this season.  But it's a woeful 24-41 ATS as a road favorite if it owned a winning SU/ATS record.  Take the points with the Raiders.  Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.

At 1 pm, our selection is on the Cleveland Browns + the points over Baltimore.  It's true that the Browns are 0-13 on the season (and 1-28 the past two seasons).  But it's also a team which is still playing hard.  Last week, it fought gamely against a Green Bay team still in the Playoff hunt, and lost in overtime, 27-21.  The week before, it played a Chargers squad that's currently won 7 of 9, yet lost by just nine points, 19-10.  This week, it will take on the Baltimore Ravens, who lost, 39-38, at Pittsburgh last week.  And the fact that Cleveland has yet to win means that it will continue to fight hard for that maiden victory.  Indeed, 0-13 (or worse) teams have gone 8-2 ATS in the season's final three weeks.  Even more impressive is the fact that those teams went 5-5 straight-up, notwithstanding the fact that they were underdogs in each game (with an average point spread of +9.15).  Finally, the Ravens have covered just six of 24 games off back-to-back point spread wins.  Don't be surprised if Cleveland wins, straight-up.  Take the points with the Browns.  NFL Elite Info Winner.  Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.

At 1 pm, our selection is on the Cincinnati Bengals + the points over Minnesota.  The Bengals' 4-game point spread win streak was snapped last Sunday by the Chicago Bears, as Cincy lost, 33-7, as a 6-point favorite.  But underdogs of more than 3 points, off a double-digit loss as a favorite of -6 points (or more), have cashed 63.3% over the last 30 years.  And the Bengals also fall into a 140-62 ATS system of mine which plays on certain teams off blowout losses.  Finally, Cincinnati is 19-5 ATS as an underdog of more than 6 points vs. non-division foes off a loss (including 9-0 ATS their last nine), while the Vikings have covered just 10 of 37 as a 7-point (or greater) favorite off a loss.  Take Cincy.  NFL Game of the Week.  Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.
