Wild Are Undefeated In Minnesota

The Minnesota Wild have impressed fans at the Xcel Energy Center this season with the team posting a perfect 5-0-0 record on home ice. The Wild will look to continue their home dominance when they start a three-game homestand against the Nashville Predators Thursday.

Minnesota has outscored opponents 18-11 at home this season, but four of those games have only been by one goal. The Wild have recorded at least one point in nine of their 11 games this season, but are still only fourth in the Central Division.

Nashville has gone through 11 games this season without facing a division opponent once, but are currently tied with the Wild in the Central with 16 points. Defenseman Roman Josi is on a three-game point streak and notched four points in five games against the Wild last season.

NBA Odds: Timberwolves vs Heat

Wade Miami Heat

The Miami Heat will try to find some consistency tonight in Minnesota when they take on a young Timberwolves team that’s coming off their first loss of the season. Miami has rotated wins and losses in their four games this season, but they’ve been efficient on the offensive end so far, being in the top eight in both field goal and three-point shooting percentage.

Inconceivably, the Heat are just 4-11 ATS in their last 15 games when playing on one day’s rest, but they have a recent history of dominating in Minnesota as they’ve gone 7-0 SU and 6-1 ATS in their last seven games as road favorites vs the Timberwolves.

Minnesota has responded well to being underdogs going back to last season, as they’re 4-1 ATS in their last five games as underdogs. The Heat likely represent a more significant challenge than the competition they’ve seen so far this season (Lakers, Nuggets, Trail Blazers) and Andrew Wiggins struggled in two games vs the Heat last season, averaging just eight points.

The teams split their two games last season.

Thunder Rarely Lose Three in a Row

Oklahoma City Thunder Steven Adams

A pair of talented teams that haven’t parlayed their on paper talent onto the floor square off Thursday when the Oklahoma City Thunder take on the Chicago Bulls at the United Center. Fresh off back to back losses, the good news for Thunder backers is it’s an extremely rare feat when Kevin Durant and company drop three in a row – OKC is 8-2 SU in its last 10 games after consecutive losses.

Shark Bites
  • The Bulls are 8-1 SU in their last nine games after losing as favorite.
  • The Thunder are 12-4 SU and ATS in their last 16 games on the road against the Bulls.
  • The Bulls are 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games after consecutive ATS losses.

The Thunder, who got off to a 3-0 start, fell 110-105 to Houston on Monday and 103-98 at the hands of the Raptors on Wednesday which consisted of strong first halves and poor performances after halftime in both contests.

Chicago was on the wrong end of a 130-105 performance against the Charlotte Hornets Tuesday, becoming one of the worst bets in the league at 1-4 ATS in the process.

Thursday Night Football: CLE vs CIN Odds

Bengals AJ Green

The Week 9 NFL edition of Thursday Night Football pits state rivals Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals against one another, and according to oddsmakers, it’s looking like the Browns will have their work cut out for them. Sportsbooks in Vegas and offshore have opened the Bengals as double-digit favorites for the tilt – a clear sign that they’re respecting Cincy’s spotless 7-0 SU record.

As good as things have gone for Cincinnati this year, it hasn’t been smooth sailing in Cleveland. The Browns led Arizona 20-10 at halftime in Week 8 before completely falling apart, allowing the Cardinals to score 24 unanswered points in the second half in an ugly 34-20 loss. Cleveland now sits tied with Baltimore in the cellar of the AFC North at 2-6 SU as a result.

Cincinnati has been absolutely on fire for bettors this season, owning a 6-0-1 ATS record in the wake of a 16-10 triumph over Pittsburgh in Week 8, which closed as a pick’em.

2015 SuperContest: Week 9 Lines Set

Two of the four remaining undefeated NFL teams are double-digit favorites, one is a road favorite and the other a home underdog on the Week 9 SuperContest Card.

The Cincinnati Bengals (7-0) kick off the week on Thursday Night Football by playing the first of two meetings against the Cleveland Browns (2-6) as 11.5-point home favorites.


Life Without Russell Begins for Baylor

Baylor Bears Jarrett Stidham

Baylor’s offense has been damn near unstoppable this season with Seth Russell at the helm, but a season-ending neck injury has thrust true freshman Jarrett Stidham into the starting role. Baylor, who has faced an average closing spread of -34.9 this season, will start their life without Russell this Thursday when they host Kansas State.

Stidham has appeared in every game this season for Baylor, but it was always in garbage time when the Bears have run up their lead to ridiculous margins. However, Baylor is more about the system than the quarterback and with a wealth of offensive weapons and a great offensive line, Baylor’s coaching staff is not expected much of a change.

Kansas State can empathize with the idea of injuries with the team losing their starting quarterback and two members of the secondary this season. The Wildcats have not won a game since opening the season 3-0.

Johnny Manziel Week 9 TNF Props

Cleveland Browns Johnny Manziel

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: it’s Johnny Football time in Cleveland.

Browns head coach Mike Pettine announced Wednesday Johnny Manziel will get the start under center against the Cincinnati Bengals in the Week 9 edition of Thursday Night Football. Manziel has been thrust into the spotlight once again due to a rib injury to regular starter Josh McCown in yet another turn of the quarterback carousel going on in northern Ohio.


Week 9 San Francisco 49ers Props

San Francisco 49ers Bradley Pinion

In case you somehow missed the all of the news surrounding the San Francisco 49ers this week, we will sum it up for you; the 49ers are in a bad way. San Fran traded tight end Vernon Davis for a couple of late round picks, they benched Colin Kaepernick for a bust first-rounder and none of the running backs on the roster Sunday were with the team last Friday.

It has gotten so bad that Bovada has a prop listed on whether the 49ers will have more punts or first downs this Sunday when they host the Atlanta Falcons.


Mizzou Has Been Dominant in November

Mizzou Football

Missouri may seem rather pedestrian so far this season, with a 4-4 SU record, but they have excelled in November with eight consecutive wins and covers in the month. The Tigers will look to remain perfect when they host the Mississippi State Bulldogs Thursday.

Mizzou went through a bit of a roller coaster this past week as they reinstated starting quarterback Maty Mauk only to suspend him for the remainder of the season six days later. Freshman signal caller Drew Lock will likely retain the starting role after getting the call the past four weeks, but the quarterback has not registered a touchdown pass in three straight games.

Despite a quieter season in Starkville, Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott has been near flawless with 14 passing touchdowns and one interception while adding another seven trips to the endzone with his legs.

Blues' Elliott Dominates Western Teams

St Louis Blues Brian Elliott

Goaltender Brian Elliott will get the start for the St. Louis Blues against the Chicago Blackhawks Wednesday after missing the past four games. Elliott has been amazing against Western Conference teams this season with the netminder posting a 4-0-0 record with a 2.01 GAA and a .918 save percentage against western foes.

Injuries have taken their toll on the Blues this season with several players out for extended periods of time, but possibly none more significant than defenseman Kirk Shattenkirk who has missed nine games with a lower body injury.  The Blues have still managed to play well despite the injuries, with the team posting an 8-3-1 record on the season and winning three of their past four.

The Blackhawks have been great at the United Center this season winning their past six on home ice to bring their record to 6-1-0 on the season at home. The Blackhawks have outscored opponents 15-7 at the United Center this season with the team winning 1-0 in their past two games in front of their fans.
