USF Closed Out Season on Hot Streak

USF NCAA Football

South Florida started the season rather poorly with a 1-3 record through their first four games, but the Bulls have since gone 7-1 and have won their past four. USF has also enjoyed success at the betting window during their current winning streak, going 4-0 ATS in their past four games. The Bulls will meet the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers on December 21st in the Miami Beach Bowl.

Let’s just say what you have heard a million times by now—USF head coach Willie Taggert used to coach Western Kentucky. 

USF quarterback Quinton Flowers has been a revelation for the Bulls with the sophomore accounting for 31 touchdowns and 2,906 offensive yards. In his past four games Flowers has thrown for 11 touchdowns, rushed for three and only has two turnovers.

Western Kentucky counters with one of the most prolific passers in college football in Brandon Doughty. The senior is second in the nation in passing yards (4,594) and first in touchdowns (45) and has thrown three or more touchdowns in 11-straight games.

MNF Preview: Lions at Saints Odds

The New Orleans Saints tend to fall apart when they’re expected to win as they are just 2-9-1 ATS in their past 12 games as the favorite. New Orleans will be the fave when they host the Detroit Lions Sunday.

The Saints defense bounced back last week after one of their worst performances of the season the week before as they held the Bucs to just 17 points and 291 offensive yards. Drew Brees has been phenomenal at home this season with a 71.5 completion percentage with 17 touchdowns and five interceptions. 

The Lions are coming off a loss to the St. Louis Rams, which is far from good. Detroit has faltered on the road this season, going 1-5 SU, but have only lost by less than three points per game.

SNF Betting Preview: Cardinals at Eagles

Arizona Cardinals NFL

The Arizona Cardinals have clinched themselves a playoff spot, but with positioning still yet to be determined, you can expect them to go all out when they visit the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday. The Cards can take solace in the fact that they are 4-1 SU and 4-0-1 ATS in their past five games against Philly.

The Cardinals have won seven consecutive games with an average scoring margin of +9.2 points. Carson Palmer has been lighting it up during that span as he has thrown 17 touchdowns to eight different receivers while only throwing four interceptions.

The Eagles are coming off back-to-back wins for the first time since Week 7 as they have victories over the New England Patriots and Buffalo Bills in the past two weeks. Sam Bradford has surprisingly done very well at protecting the ball with just one interception in the past four games.

NFL Week 15 Expert Betting Odds Picks

Two underdogs and a total are the NFL Week 15 ticket. Let's start with Chicago getting 5.5 points at Minnesota.

The Vikings are improved under Mike Zimmer, but they are far from a powerhouse. I see the Bears keeping this one close, which was the case in Week 8 when Minnesota won, 23-20, on a field goal at the gun. The Bears had more passing yards, first downs and clock possession in that loss.

Kings Struggling Mightily on the Road

Sacramento Kings DeMarcus Cousins

The Sacramento Kings have been far from road warriors this season but will be looking to turn things around Sunday when they travel north of the border for a matchup with the Toronto Raptors. The Kings have dropped nine out of their 11 contests away from home on the year, but are a much better 8-7 SU at home.

Shark Bites
  • The home team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings between the Raptors and Kings.
  • The OVER is 5-2 in the last 7 games between the Raptors and Kings.
  • The Raptors are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS win.

Both squads feature centers that are riding hot streaks heading into the tilt. Sacramento’s DeMarcus Cousins – one of the top big men in the Association – has strung together five-straight double-doubles, while Toronto’s Bismack Biyombo is averaging 15.3 rebounds and 3.3 blocks over his previous three games.

There hasn’t been much value in betting underdogs when the Raps and Kings collide, as the favorite has gone 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings between the clubs.

NHL Odds: Capitals at Rangers

Alexander Ovechkin Washington Capitals

The Washington Capitals have been one of the best teams in the NHL this season and have an opportunity to collect their fifth-straight victory when they take on the New York Rangers at the renowned Madison Square Garden Sunday evening. Since Nov. 24, Washington trailed New York by five points in the Metropolitan Division but have since gone 9-1-1, while the Blueshirts have stumbled to a 3-8-2 record during that span.

Shark Bites
  • The Rangers are 1-5 in their last 6 overall.
  • The Capitals are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings between the Rangers and Capitals in New York.
  • The OVER is 5-0 in the Rangers last 5 games.

The Rangers have enjoyed facing the Caps, according to recent history. In the last four meetings between the teams, New York is a perfect 4-0 including a 5-2 decision on Nov. 3.

Home ice advantage has been huge in this series. Road clubs are just 1-6 in the prior seven clashes between the Capitals and Rangers.
