NFL Week 15 OddsShark Computer Picks

I don’t think many people expected a 51-point day from the Jacksonville Jaguars last week, but it was exactly what we got. The Jags put up the most points in their team’s not-so-illustrious existence thanks to a performance that saw the offense, defense and special teams all score. The OddsShark Super Computer is a supporter of the Jags as it has tabbed Jacksonville to pound the Atlanta Falcons 31.1-16.6.


Arizona Unable To Cover Against NAU

The Arizona Wildcats have been steamrolling Northern Arizona, which should not be much of a surprise, but inflated spreads have caused bettors to avoid the chalk. Arizona is 2-4-1 ATS in their past seven contests against Northern Arizona despite averaging a 19.4 point margin of victory in that span.

Inconsistency continues to plague the Wildcats this season as they opened their season winning their first four games by nearly 20 points per game, but then needed overtime to beat Santa Clara and lost to Providence.  The last four games have seen freshman Allonzo Trier start to round into form as he has averaged 17.3 points on 70 percent shooting.

NAU has not picked up a win in Tucson since 1966 and has yet to win a true road game this season. The Lumberjacks do offer some offensive depth, with four players averaging double-digit points this season.

The OVER is Hot in Warriors Games

Steph Curry Warriors

After suffering their first loss of the season after a historic 24-0 start, the Warriors will look to start a new streak when they host the Suns at Oracle Arena. The Warriors have won four straight vs Phoenix which includes a 135-116 victory in late November.

It’s certainly not a shock to see the Warriors open as double digit favorites in this one, as the line opened at -12.5. Golden State has covered in five of their last six games vs the Suns and six of their 10 home wins have come by double digits.

The Suns have struggled on the road this season, posting a 4-9 SU record. They’ve also struggled against other Western Conference teams, going 1-7 SU and 2-6 ATS in their last eight vs Western Conference opponents.

The game opened with a total of 219.5 which is the highest total of any NBA game tonight. The high number shouldn’t come as a surprise as Golden State leads the NBA in points per game, while Phoenix is fourth. The Warriors have seen the total go OVER in eight of their last nine games, while the Suns have gone OVER in four straight after losing the previous game in a matchup.

NCAAB Betting: Tulane vs North Carolina

North Carolina Tar Heels Brice Johnson

The North Carolina Tar Heels suffered their second defeat of the season at the hands of the Texas Longhorns on Saturday but suffered an even bigger loss when forward Kennedy Meeks left the game with a bone bruise in his left knee. Meeks is expected to miss at least two weeks as a result, which means UNC will need the rest of their squad to step up Wednesday when they take on the Tulane Green Wave.

Shark Bites
  • Tulane is 2-8 SU in its last 10 games after a win.
  • The total has gone UNDER in North Carolina's last four games after losing as a favorite.
  • Tulane is 6-2 ATS in its last eight games on the road in December.

Sportsbooks initially opened Tulane as 23-point underdogs for the tilt, something that will surely appeal to UNDER bettors. In Tulane’s previous 12 games when labeled as underdogs, the UNDER has gone 9-3.

The Tar Heels have traditionally been a solid bet to bounce back after suffering a defeat. UNC is 6-1-1 ATS in their last eight games coming off a SU loss.

Wiz Haven't Won in San Antonio Since '99

San Antonio Spurs Tony Parker

Just how long has it been since the Washington Wizards won a game in San Antonio? The Y2K bug was a real threat and “Livin’ La Vida Loca” was topping the charts the last time the Wiz topped the Spurs in Texas, but they’ll have an opportunity to break that streak Wednesday when the clubs renew acquaintances in the Lone Star State.

Shark Bites
  • The home team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings between the Spurs and Wizards.
  • The Wizards are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games.
  • The OVER is 6-1-1 in the Wizards last 8 overall.

San Antonio has been phenomenal at home this season, posting a spotless 13-0 record in front of their hometown fans including Monday’s 118-81 hammering of the Utah Jazz. The seemingly ageless Spurs have won their last three games by an average of 28.5 points en route to a fantastic 21-5 record – the second-best start in franchise history.

The AT&T Center has also been a solid source for UNDER bettors when the Wiz and Spurs have collided in San Antonio, evidenced by the OVER/UNDER going 1-6 in their last seven meetings in Texas.

Streaking Bruins Host Struggling Pens

Patrice Bergeron Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins have just one regulation loss in their past 12 games while putting up 19 of a possible 24 points. The Bruins will look to tally a fourth consecutive game with at least one point when they host the Pittsburgh Penguins Wednesday.

The Bruins have won four of their past five against the Penguins entering their home-and-home set Wednesday. As one-sided as the rivalry sounds, seven of the past eight games between these clubs have been settled by one goal.

Patrice Bergeron continues to be the offensive linchpin of the Bruins as he has four points in the past three games. The center is also tied for the team lead in points this season with 29.

The Penguins will be without starting goalie Marc-Andre Fleury as he suffered a concussion in his last outing. With Fleury gone one-to-two weeks, backup Jeff Zatkoff (.936 SV%, 2.43 GAA) will get the bulk of the starts for the Pens.

NFL Week 15 Opening Odds Analysis

It still seems strange for old-timers like myself, brought up on the Vince Lombardi power sweep, to see NFL totals in the 50's.

There have been totals of 50 points or higher in all but two of the weeks this NFL season. This Week 15 is no exception with an over/under of 51 in the Detroit-New Orleans Monday night game and 50.5 in the Arizona-Philadelphia matchup.


Top Brazil Sports Betting Sites

Though online sports betting is very common in Brazil, surprisingly enough there are no true Brazilian sportsbooks online. Bettors must be extremely careful as many sites that claim to be Brazilian sportsbooks are illegal and unsafe to use. The Brazilian sports betting population must look internationally to find a legitimate sportsbook that is safe for them to use. Currently, there are 462 international sportsbooks that welcome Brazilian bettors, with over 30 of them offering Portuguese language support.
