Play Type: Top Premium

8* Buffalo (7:05 ET): The Sabres are struggling - mightily - to start this season, but I think a visit from a Vancouver team caught in the second game of a back to back should cure what ails them. Buffalo's 1-4-2 start has included five road games, the last four of which all took place out West. While they finally got off the proverbial "schnide" at Anaheim, an OT loss at Vegas was certainly not the way they hoped to end the trip. Still, I was impressed w/ the way they rallied back from a 4-1 deficit in that game and they did outshoot the Golden Knights 34-31. The team has dropped both of its home games thus far, but like I said earlier Vancouver is not a good road team as their 12-26-3 mark last year was second worst in the entire league. The Canucks did begin this Eastern trek of theirs w/ a 3-0 shutout of Ottawa, but lost last night in Boston, 6-3.

Last night's game in Beantown was never really competitive as the Canucks fell behind 4-1 after one period, giving up the four goals in a seven minute span (three on the power play). It was the team's fourth loss in five games and they have yet to score more than three goals in any game this year (rank 26th in goals per game). This projected to be one of the worst teams in the league coming into the year and a big reason for that was the lack of firepower as LY they ranked 29th in goals per game. They lean far too heavily on the Sedin twins. Not to mention, they were also 24th in goals allowed last year. With this being the second game of a B2B, it's unclear who will be in goal - Jacob Markstrom or Anders Nilsson - as the latter was pulled early last night. Truth be told, neither is a particularly appetizing option as Markstrom has an .887 save percentage his L4 appearances.

It's very early in the season, but this one is almost a "must win" for the home team as it's a quick turnaround to play at Boston tomorrow night. It terms of the oddsmakers, this game marks the most prohibitive of a favorite the Sabres have been installed as to date. Defensively, they have struggled, but as discussed earlier, Vancouver is a weak offensive team. If the Sabres are unable to beat a bad, unrested team at home, the outlook could begin to get REALLY bleak in a hurry here in upstate New York. This is a franchise desperate for some modicum of success, so I believe they'll target this game as a "golden" opportunity to try and turn things around. Yes, it's a pretty high price range for a team that's dropped six of seven to open the year, but my own power rankings suggest that they should be even higher on the money line! Vancouver is a woeful 21-45 the L3 seasons coming off a non-conference game. 8* Buffalo

Hawks vs Hornets
OVER 202 -115 Lost
$115.0
Play Type: Top Premium

10* Over Hawks/Hornets (7:05 ET): These two division rivals are expected to trend in very opposite directions in 2017-18. You don't have to dig very deep to understand why. Atlanta has dismantled its roster after years of mediocrity and early playoff exits. Believe it or not, the Hawks own the East's longest active playoff streak at 10 consecutive seasons, but that will almost assuredly end this year as oddsmakers aren't even forecasting them for 30 wins this year. Let's also throw in the fact that despite finishing 43-39 SU LY, the Hawks were actually outscored over the course of the season and benefited from an extremely fortunate 5-0 SU record in OT games. The Hornets were just the opposite as they went 0-9 SU in games decided by three points or less (were 0-6 in OT!), thus nullifying the fact they actually outscored their opponents! Thus it should not be surprising to you that I have them right at the top of my "Most Improved" list for this season.

However, the script that I am writing for the respective seasons did not play out in each team's opener. Atlanta went to Dallas and won outright 117-111, shooting 51.1% from the floor, including 9 of 18 from three-point range. They were led by Dennis Schroeder's 28 points and also got a huge lift off the bench from Marco Belinelli, who scored 20. As for Charlotte, they suffered a rather ugly 102-90 defeat at the hands of Detroit Wednesday night. They shot only 39.7% from the floor, including 9 of 30 from three-point range. Take out Kemba Walker's 24 points and the shooting numbers begin to get really ugly. HC Steve Clifford has indicated that he may start tinkering w/ his starting lineup. I have no unearthly idea why Cody Zeller did not start the first game.

These division rivals have met eight times the previous two seasons. All eight games have stayed Under, which is quite the trend. Given how well Atlanta shot the ball in Dallas, you might be surprised to learn that I'm not projecting much decline tonight. That's because outside of Schroeder, none of the other four starters topped 10 points against the Mavs. Collectively, we're likely to get more production from that quartet tonight, which will counteract any decline from Schroeder and/or Belinelli. Charlotte is all but a lock to shoot better tonight (at home) compared to their season opener. Save for an ugly loss in Atlanta late in the year, the Hornets scored at least 100 pts in all other meetings w/ the Hawks last year. This isn't a very high total - at least by modern NBA standards - and I'm calling for the game to go Over. 10* Over Hawks/Hornets

Yankees vs Astros
UNDER 7½ -120 Lost
$120.0
Play Type: Top Premium

10* Under Yankees/Astros (8:05 ET): The Yankees have done it yet again, rallying back from an 0-2 series hole by winning three straight. But unlike the LDS vs. Cleveland, this series is not over nor have they won a game on the road. The first two games here in Houston were both low-scoring affairs w/ the Astros winning 2-1 each time. Unfortunately for the Astros though, they have "picked" the worst possible time for their bats to go silent (more on that in a moment). While the series returning to Minute Maid Park seems like an advantage (road team has yet to win in this series), the Astros' offensive producton actually DECREASES at home! Thankfully for them, so too does the Yankees' on the road. We've got what looks like a strong starting pitching matchup on paper (Game 2 rematch), so I like the Under tonight. 

Of all the starters in the rotation, Justin Verlander certainly would seem to give Houston it's best chance of winning right now (and, no, I haven't forgotten about Dallas Keuchel). Verlander has an 8-0 TSR his L8 starts and went the distance in Game 2, allowing just one run on five hits w/ a 13-1 KW ratio. He has allowed 2 ER or fewer in each of those last eight starts w/ a 61-9 KW ratio and his ERA/WHIP are 1.29/0.735. That's the good news for the Astros here. The bad news is, and pardon the lazy headline, "Houston we have a problem" and that problem is the offense. They've scored all of nine runs in the series, four of them coming in one game (Game 4). This is a pretty stunning decline, given they ranked #1 in all key statistical categories during the regular season. As mentioned earlier, they actually average fewer runs per game at home (4.9) compared to the road (6.0). That difference of more than a full run per game is pretty significant.

The Yankees see their own offensive production dip from 5.6 at home (tops among American League teams) to 4.9 on the road. If i can levy one criticism against their offense, and I do believe it is a valid one, it's that they are entirely too reliant on the home run ball. They've struck out at least 11 times in 8 of 10 playoff games so far. As previously mentioned, all they managed was a pair of runs in the first two games here in Houston. Four times this postseason, they've been held to 1 or 0 runs. So it will likely be up to Luis Severino to keep them in this one. Severino gave up only one run and two hits in Game 2, starting opposite Verlander, though he did only last four innings. But I'm not really concerned with the fact he's failed to make it past the fourth in two of his three postseason starts due to the strength of the Yankees' bullpen. Severino does have better numbers this year on the road (2.24 ERA, 1.037 WHIP) compared to at home. 10* Under Yankees/Astros

Marshall vs Middle Tennessee State
OVER 49 -115 Lost
$115.0
Play Type: Top Premium

10* Over Marshall/Middle Tennessee (7:00 ET): Middle Tennessee enters the week as one of five FBS teams to be perfect either Over or Under. The Blue Raiders have yet to go Over the oddsmakers total in a single game this season (though there was a close call two wks ago vs. FIU), joining Houston (plays Thursday), Troy and Akron w/ that unique distinction (LA Monroe is the only team to have gone Over in every game this season). The reason for the Under trend is pretty clear and that's QB Brent Stockstill (son of HC Rick) has been injured most of the year. This was a team that averaged 39.7 points and over 500 yards a year ago, so needless to say, Stockstill's absence has had a profound impact on things down in Murfreesboro. But this week, we get the lowest O/U line to date and I say it's "high time" we get an Over.

Marshall is a team I was sure to put on my "Most Improved List" for 2017 (played them successfully in Week 1) and the Thundering Herd has not disappointed w/ their lone loss so far coming to a very good NC State team, on the road. That was Week 2 and they've won four straight (all by double digits) since. The last two weeks, facing Charlotte and Old Dominion (two poor teams), they've allowed only six points total and no touchdowns. Earlier in the year, the defense pitched a shutout against old MAC rival Kent State, so you can see why this total is so low. But at the same time, the Thundering Herd probably haven't faced anything resembling a coherent offense in over a month. MTSU still won't have Stockstill Friday, but they've at least scored 20+ points in four straight games. Even in defeat LW at UAB, they gained nearly 400 total yds.

That game LW vs. UAB was on pace to be a high scoring affair at halftime as UAB led 22-20. But from there, the teams would only manage to exchange field goals in the 2H. I really have no way of explaining that dropoff in scoring from the first to second half. As I mentioned earlier, the week prior was the Blue Raiders' highest scoring game of the year as they beat FIU 37-17 (depending on your closing total, you may have that one counted as an Over). That is one of three MTSU games this year that would have gone Over the O/U for this week. In fact, against FAU (lost 38-20) and Syracuse (won 30-23), we had O/U lines of 60 and 72.5 respectively! While Stockstill remains out, the good news is that WR Richie James is back (returned last week). James' absence for three games is also a major reason for the Blue Raiders' offensive decline in 2017. All James has done in his career is lead all active FBS receivers in receptions (239) while placing 2nd in yards (3224)! I'm confident that backup John Uruza will be able to get him the ball. Marshall's offense, led by QB Chase Litton, is averaging 26.5 PPG. Litton has thrown 13 TD passes and RB Davis is averaging 5.0 YPC. Expect this game to go Over the total. 10* Over Marshall/Middle Tennessee

8* Old Dominion (6:00 ET): Old Dominion has "accomplished" something that's hard to do and that's lost four straight games by 30 or more points. The scores have been 53-23 (North Carolina), 38-0 (Va Tech), 58-28 (Fla Atlantic) and last week, 35-3 (Marshall). Now we all expected (at least I did) some regression from the Monarchs this season considering they aren't as experienced and were unlikely to have the same turnover margin as last year (+13). But, remember, this team won TEN games in 2016. So, it's definitely "hard times" down in Norfolk and things get no easier this week w/ a visit from the presumed C-USA East favorite Western Kentucky. For ODU, this is a revenge shot from their lone league last year, which came by 35 points in Bowling Green. They were only 13-pt dogs on the road there, so you can see how perception has swung in a year's time. As ugly as ODU's recent performances have been, I'll take the points here. 

Up until last week, Western Kentucky had not covered a spread this season (favored in every game so far). But they rolled up over 600 yds total offense on Charlotte (one of the worst teams in the entire country) in a 45-14 win as 17.5-pt chalk. The schedule has not been challenging to this point as the Hilltoppers have faced only one opponent ranked higher than 100 in my own personal power rankings (LA Tech) and they lost to them, by one, at home. They also lost at Illinois, which you normally wouldn't penalize them for, but the Fighting Illini are the worst Power 5 team in the country, and the Hilltoppers were favored there. Despite the weak schedule, WKU is only outgaining its opponents by 30 YPG this season.

WKU has won all three meetings vs. ODU, most of them high-scoring. In fact, the lowest scoring Hilltopper effort of the three was 55 points! But the offense isn't as prolific this year w/ former HC Jeff Brohm having gone to Purdue. They're averaging only 25.5 PPG through six games and the two road games (Illinois, UTEP) have seem them scored just 22 TOTAL! Old Dominion is hardly an offensive juggernaut, but a front seven that was thought to be the strength of the team coming into the year, has underachieved drastically. Note that last week, the Monarchs trailed Marshall only 14-3 entering the fourth quarter. They are on an 8-3 SU in conference home games, including 4-0 last season. It hasn't helped that they've yet to win the turnover battle in any of their games this season. RB Ray Lawly will return to the Monarchs' lineup this week and that will surely help the offense. 8* Old Dominion

Indiana
+7 -105 at Bovada
Play Type: Top Premium

8* Indiana (3:30 ET): Michigan State is 3-0 SU in Big 10 play, but all three wins have come by seven points or less. Now I know the Sparty faithful are going to be quick to point out last week's "backdoor" situation against Minnesota when they were up 30-13 in the 4Q, only to give up two late touchdowns and lose the cover (were four-point favorites on the road). But what about the week prior when they stunned Michigan (again!) at The Big House, winning 14-10 courtesy of a +5 turnover margin, which in turn nullified them gaining only 252 yards on offense? Meanwhile, Indiana covered for me last week (had them +7.5), but for the vast majority of bettors, they fell short (again) against Michigan, losing in overtime. An 0-3 ATS record vs. Ohio State, Penn State and Michigan is downright criminal considering how well IU played those teams (well, at least 2 of the 3) and it's about time they finish one of these games proper. This could very well be an upset, but I'll take the points.

Like many of the other top teams in the Big 10, Michigan State has been played tough by Indiana. But the Hoosiers have not beaten the Spartans in B2B seasons since '93-'94, which was the ONLY time they've done it since 1969! They'll be going for history Saturday as last year, they did pull the upset (in a similar price range), 24-21 in overtime (I was on them). At no point in that game was IU not covering. Their last visit to East Lansing resulted in a highly misleading final of 52-26 as it was only a two-point game in the 4Q before an insane confluence of events conspired against them. From '93 to '14, Indiana appeared in only one bowl game ('07), but now the program is on a better trajectory as they're looking to make it three straight postseasons. Holding onto the "Ol' Brass Spittoon" would be a nice trophy en route. 

Entering this game at 3-3 SU, Indiana might very well have to pull an upset as the majority of their remaining "winnable" games are on the road. Rutgers at home is probably a lock. So they probably have to split the four road games against Mich St, Maryland, Illinois and Purdue. Meanwhile, Michigan State is 5-1 SU, but could easily be 3-3 SU. It will be interesting to see how Mark Dantonio's young roster responds to being in the favorite role moving forward. Prior to last week, the Spartans had not scored more than 18 points in over a month, which obviously makes it difficult to like them as chalk, no matter how good the defense is. Indiana's offense (redshirt freshman Peyton Ramsey now starting) will be the best that they've faced since Notre Dame (only loss) and their defense comes in a little underrated (seventh overall in Big 10, fourth against the pass). With three conference wins by a total of 14 pts and a suspect offense, Michigan State is prime fade material here. 8* Indiana

8* Texas (12:00 ET): The Tom Herman era in Austin started not w/ a bang, but rather a whimper as his Longhorns were stunned in the season opener, losing 51-41 to Maryland (trailed 30-14 at half, but finished w/ 26-18 edge in FD's). But it turns out that result was the exception and not the rule as the Longhorns have covered every game since! Now they're just 3-3 SU overall having also lost to USC and Oklahoma. But both of those games were close and could have gone either way against favored and highly ranked opponents. Oklahoma State obviously presents a challenge, particularly on the offensive side of the ball, but Herman has the Texas defense playing at a high level and I think they'll be up for it. I'm taking the points and won't be surprised if it ends up as an outright upset!

Oklahoma State comes in ranked #1 in the country in total offense at 610.7 YPG and #2 in scoring at 48.8 points per game. Their top two receivers - James Washington and Marcell Ateman - have both posted four straight 100 yard games, becoming the first duo to do so since 1996! Last week, the Pokes whitewashed Baylor 59-16, which was not much of a surprise considering they were off a bye and the game was in Stillwater. Shockingly, OSU has won each of its last four trips into Austin, the longest such streak by any visitor in the HISTORY of Texas football! But the Longhorns' defense just fared pretty well against an Oklahoma offense which came into the game ranked ahead of OSU in total offense. They held the Sooners to just nine points after halftime in what was a failed come from behind attempt.

Coming into this season, I viewed these teams as likely to trend in opposite directions compared to 2016. Texas was a lock to improve under Herman following LY's disappointing 5-7 SU finish under Charlie Strong. There were 17 starters back, 10 on defense, and the team actually played much better than that 5-7 record indicates. They lost five games by a TD or less, three of them when favored. Also, they actually outgained Big 12 opponents despite a 3-6 conference record! Earlier, I mentioned that Texas has covered every game since the opener (5-0 ATS) and Herman is now 7-0 ATS his L7 times as a dog w/ five outright wins! The Longhorns led both USC and Oklahoma in the fourth quarter and it's about "high time" that they win one of these close ones. I know everyone loves this OK State offense, but they were held in check by a TCU defense (at home) that isn't as good as the one they'll face Saturday. It's easy when you can throw the ball all over the field against inferior opposition, but that will not be the case here. 8* Texas
