PICK WRITE-UP: These 2 might end up playing each other in January. This is the last of a brutal 3-game road trip for Minnesota, who just keep on winning, with their current SU run now at 8-0, with accompanying 7-1 ATS mark (only miss by ˝ pt). Keenum in off yet another fine performance: 25-of-30, in throttling of the Falcons, allowing no touchdowns. Panthers covered their last home game by 16 points, but note the visitor is on an 11-4 ATS run in Carolina games

PICK WRITE-UP: Another one of those "old school" classic NFL match ups: Brown, Hornung, Lombardi, etc. Well, you might know. Just 10 points for the Browns at the Chargers, but still managed to cover (to our dismay) a 2-touchdown spot vs a team which had scored 82 points in its previous 2 outings. Two more turnovers, so Cleveland leads the NFL (-19) in the all-important category.

PICK WRITE-UP: Hard to believe that this one may end up being meaningless in the NFC playoff race (notice time change). Will Eli get the start, after seeing his streak of 210 games end last week, to Geno Smith, of all people. Cowboys got their first win without Zeke on Thursday night behind Morris' 127 RYs, & Dak got his first TD pass since Nov 5th, but still just 102 passing yards. And Dez broke Bob Hayes' club record for TD grabs (74). Dallas is 3-11 ATS as a division road favorite off a double digit SU win, vs an opponent off a SU setback

PICK WRITE-UP: It just continues to amaze. How the Broncos could come from Super Bowl winners, to their current state is nearly impossible to grasp. An absolutely astounding 0-8 SU & ATS slide with a deficit of 241-108 points. I keep rewriting it, but it just extends their worst run in 50 years. Last week, they managed 9 points vs a Dolphin team that gave up 205 points in their prior 6 games (34.2 ppg). A 3-game stranglehold on the cellar of the AFC West. The Jets are in off posting 30 first downs & a time edge of 42:49-17:11 in win over Kansas City

PICK WRITE-UP: Both teams coming off tough games, as Boston was in San Antonio Friday and Detroit hosted Golden State. The Celtics own the best spread record in the league, although they’ve cooled to 4-4 vs. the number in the last few weeks. Detroit has been reliable at home this season, settling in nicely at the Pistons’ brand-new Little Caesars Arena. Detroit put one of the blemishes on the Celtic record two weeks ago in Boston when Detroit F Tobias Harris made 11 of 16 shots and led all scorers with 31, while C Andre Drummond had 26 points. & 22 rebounds the 118-108 upset win. With Boston starters Jaylen Brown (eye) and PF Marcus Morris (soreness) not 100%, gladly side with home team.

PICK WRITE-UP: The Central Division-leading St. Louis Blues could be without one of their leading scorers Sunday as they seek their fourth straight victory when they open a four-game homestand against the Buffalo Sabres. Jaden Schwartz, who ranks second on the Blues in both goals (14) and points (35), exited Saturday's 6-1 triumph at Detroit in the first period with an apparent ankle injury and did not return. Brayden Schenn recorded a goal and an assist against the Red Wings and sits one ahead of Schwartz - who also tallied before leaving the contest - in both categories. Buffalo is wrapping up a four-game road trip on which it is 1-1-1 after Friday's 3-2 overtime loss in Chicago

PICK WRITE-UP: Minnesota cruised to a pair of win-and cover efforts against Dallas earlier this season, leading by 24 points. in the 4th Q before barely holding on for the cover with a 112-99 decision laying 12˝ in Minnesota. The Timberwolves overcame a 12-point halftime deficit in Dallas Nov. 17, outscoring the Mavs 68-32 in the second half to pull away. Minnesota C Karl-Anthony Towns has scored 23 ppg on 57% shooting, while F Andrew Wiggins scored 21 points per game and shot 55% against the Mavs.

PICK WRITE-UP: What a great series this has been in the 21st century, having played some classic battles, both in the regular season, & in the playoffs. The Ravens live via their defense (7th), & the TO (1st at +14), as their offense ranks ahead of only Tampa in the NFL. Check a point edge of 150-59 in their last 5 games, with Flacco finally even in TD/INT ratio (11/11). The Steelers are in off their Monday battle with the Bengals, & are the match for Ravens' "D" (4th) but also coming in at 7th on "O". Forget revenge factor.

PICK WRITE-UP: Brayden Schenn has been hot and cold since the start of November, and the 26-year-old appears to be heating up again. Schenn has scored four goals in the last two contests for the St. Louis Blues, who bid to extend their winning streak to three games this afternoon against the Detroit Red Wings at Little Caesars Arena. Schenn recorded four-point performances to bookend an eight-game point streak before failing to dent the scoresheet in five straight contests prior to extending his recent offensive outburst with a power-play goal in a 3-0 win over Dallas on Thursday. While Schenn has been streaky for the Blues, he has been consistent versus the Red Wings with 12 points (six goals, six assists) in 14 career encounters.

PICK WRITE-UP: Detroit, which has only managed to defeat talent-thin Div.II programs thus far, is still in a sieve on the stop end, permitting a whopping 92.1 ppg (349th). So, willing to lay a short price with veteran WMU, making the relatively short 140-mile bus ride to the Motor City. Broncos’ explosive, sharp-shooting 6-3 sr. G Thomas Wilder (19.2 ppg; 48% from deep) should go wild, while springy 6-5 sr. G Josh Davis (9 ppg; team high 49 rebounds) gets plenty of put-back opportunities vs. poor-boarding Titans, ranked a wretched 328th in rebound margin (-6.2 rpg).

PICK WRITE-UP: After starting the season 4-0, a series of injuries pushed Los Angeles into a 4-15 nosedive. Washington took a serious injury of its own, losing PG John Wall for an indefinite period with a knee injury, but the Wizards have won 3 of last 5 (4-1 vs. the points) and G Tomas Satoransky has contributed double figures in his share of Wall’s minutes, and is shooting 57% in the last 5 games prior to visiting Phoenix (50% beyond the arc). Conversely, when the Clips lost PF Blake Griffin, the bottom fell out and they’ve lost all four (1-3 vs. the number) since. If Wizards can win in Portland and Minnesota in the last week, they can put a torpedo in the listing Clipper ship

PICK WRITE-UP: Brooklyn probably more acclimated to the altitude in Mexico City than Miami after playing here on Thursday and seeing the sights yesterday. However, the Heat are stepping down in class after being beaten by Golden State and San Antonio in last two games. Miami has won 12 of the last 13 against the Nets, covering 10 of the last 11, but altitude might slow Heat in 2nd half, and C Hassan Whiteside didn’t make this road trip. Brooklyn has been on a roll of late, covering 8 of its last 9 overall and 8 of L9 away from home prior to facing Oklahoma City here Thursday. Addition of C Jahlil Okafor can’t hurt the Nets.

PICK WRITE-UP: Marshall continues to show little interest in getting stops away from home, evidenced by its 114-104 setback at rebuilding Colonial rep William & Mary, its last away game on Nov. 29. Hence, eager to lay several hoops with uptempo UT, which drills 10.1 triples pg @ nearly 39%. Rockets’ hard-to-guard 6-7 wing Tre’Shaun Fletcher (18 ppg; team high 35 assists) has quickly found a home after transferring from Colorado, while improved 6-11 soph C Luke Knapke (12 ppg, 6 rpg; 16 blocks) will continue to be a force in the paint area vs. the Herds’ shorter, nondescript forecourt. Payback works for Rockets, who hit only 16 of 29 foul shots in LY’s aggravating 111-105 OT loss in Huntington.

Captain Gabriel Landeskog returned after a four-game suspension for an illegal hit and scored a goal, but Colorado allowed the final three tallies of the contest.

PICK WRITE-UP: Forward Robert Franks was the lone Cougars player to score in double figures (16 points) against Idaho, and he’s pacing the squad at 19.9 points and 6.8 rebounds per game. Sophomore guard Malachi Flynn (16.8 points) is the only player averaging double figures, but he’s totaled 28 points over the last two contests while losing eight turnovers and committing five fouls. Overall, the Cougars are in need of some better starts as they fell behind Idaho 22-6 scarcely five minutes into Wednesday’s game and have trailed by 17 and 19 at the half, respectively, in their last two contests. The Miners dropped six straight after a season-opening win and along the way lost six-year veteran coach Tim Floyd, who abruptly announced his retirement Nov. 27 following a 66-52 defeat to Lamar.

Dallas is playing well of late, posting a 4-3 SU record and 6-1 spread mark in its last 7. The Mavs are out shooting foes from beyond the arc lately and have covered L4 visiting Eastern Conference foes. The Bucks appear overrated based on their 6-11 spread mark since Halloween, and don’t fancy laying points with Jason Kidd’s bunch on revenge alone.

PICK WRITE-UP: Kyle Turris has made the most of a change of scenery, scoring a goal and setting up another versus the Stars to increase his point total to 12 (three goals, nine assists) in 13 games since coming over in a trade from Ottawa. Both points against Dallas came on the power play to run that total to eight since the swap, and that number could rise as Turris and the Predators face the Golden Knights' 27th-ranked penalty kill (76.5 percent). Speaking of impressive numbers, Pekka Rinne has won seven of his last eight starts and owns an 11-2-1 mark at Bridgestone Arena

PICK WRITE-UP: U of O in a very chippy mood after its long-standing 46-home win streak was snapped in 73-70 setback to surging Boise State last Friday. So, with 6 days to stew over that painful loss, look for determined Ducks to quickly get back on track vs. defensively-soft CSU, allowing 76.4 ppg (257th). Aggressive U of O defense should help fuel transition game vs. mistake-prone Rams, ranked a lowly 303rd in TO margin. Foresee a huge performance from Ducks’ skillful sr. G Elijah Brown (New Mexico transfer; 13 ppg), who hit only 6 of 15 from the field vs. Broncos. Rams likely fall to 0-3 as a visiting underdog after this anticipated double digit loss.

PICK WRITE-UP: A little payback should be on the plate for New Orleans after being victimized by one of the season’s most puzzling scorelines on Nov. 17 at Pepsi Center when Nuggets dropped a 146-114 bomb on the Pels. New Orleans stopped playing “D” in second half that night when Denver rolled up 82 points en route to 63% FG shooting! All starters in double figures for Nuggets led by Jamal Murray’s 31 points. But that was one of the last games Paul Millsap was active for Denver, and minus him the Nuggets have absorbed some beatings on the road, losing by 30 at Houston and 29 at Utah. The Nuggets were bottom ten-ranked in both offense and defense in the first four games that Millsap missed, so Pels couldn’t have picked a better time to seek their revenge

PICK WRITE-UP: Two perennial powers heading in opposite directions will collide tonight when the Washington Capitals host the Chicago Blackhawks. The Capitals are starting to hit their stride with five wins in their last six games, but the Blackhawks are battling to avoid the Central Division basement after dropping four in a row. Washington's only loss in the past six games came at the hands of the Los Angeles Kings, who sent Chicago to its fourth consecutive defeat (0-2-2) with a 3-1 road victory on Sunday. The Blackhawks have struggled against the Capitals, losing six of their last seven overall and the past six visits to Washington, including a 6-0 drubbing in their last trip in January.

PICK WRITE-UP: Match of the nation's top 2 scoring teams. The Tigers of Memphis did about as expected in last week's 70-13 destruction of East Carolina's sieve defense, with nearly a 300-yard edge. Memphis, behind QB Ferguson, is averaging 44.2 points per game in its last 5 outings, thus, the Tigers are the real deal. Only 1 loss. Right, that setback came at the hands of this week's opponent, in that 40-13 final in Sept. I've been on the undefeated Knights since the season's beginning, reaping a nice reward, and I'm not about to change.

PICK WRITE-UP: As usual, the Buckeyes of Ohio State have been in the mix for the collegiate playoff for just about the entire season, that is, until their 55-24 loss to Iowa, a 49-point ATS loss. So 2 losses & now 8th in the national polls. Despite that, can't help but note that they rank 5th & 4th in scoring & total offense, as well as 20th & 8th in scoring & total defense. No doubt still an obvious force, especially with Meyer on the sidelines. But the 2nd-ranked Badgers just win (11-0). Are 1st, 2nd, 2nd, 1st in run, pass, scoring, total defense, with solid combination in their backfield: seasoned QB in Hornibrook & nation's 3rd ranked rusher, in frosh Taylor.

PICK WRITE-UP: Sure, the defending national champs aren't on the same page as last year's edition, offensively, that is. After all, there is only one Deshaun Watson (just ask the Houston Texans). However, defensively, they have few, if any, peers. A week ago, for example, it seemed as if the entire football world was on South Carolina, as a home dog vs CU. Result: 34-10 Tiger win, with a 27-10 first down edge. The 'Canes came crashing down in last weeks shocking loss to Pitt & its 86th ranked defense, managing a mere 14 first downs & 45 rushing yards. Miami has been streaky all season (+52 points ATS previous 2, but -26 points ATS last 2). Tigers!

PICK WRITE-UP: Maybe Mike Brey brings Coley O’Brien and Rocky Bleier along for moral support in East Lansing. But Brey’s “small-ball” working just fine in the early going, as LSU found out in Maui when the Fighting Irish burned the nets at 52% and drubbed the Tigers by 39. ND’s mobile 6-6 sr. PF Bonzie Colson (20.3 ppg in early going) could prove awkward for MSU bigs, especially touted 6-11 frosh Jaren Jackson, jr., who is having a devil of a time staying out of foul trouble (4 or 5 whistles in first three games) in November. Tom Izzo justifiably worried about protecting the glass (Duke 25 offensive caroms in recent Blue Devil win at Chicago) and with sloppiness (Spartans 17 TOs pg first three), not to mention recent twisted ankle suffered by star 6-7 soph wing Miles Bridges.

PICK WRITE-UP: The Boston win streak had grown to a Bird-McHale-like 16 in a row into last Wednesday vs. the Heat. Though this one still intrigues a bit because of Philly’s stirring. Remember, the Celtic win streak began way back on Oct. 20 at Wells Fargo Center, when Boston tied up both Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons (each held to only 11 points) in 102-92 win. But a bit more characteristic production from Embiid and/or Simmons could get Sixers (7-2 as dog through Nov. 26) closer in rematch.

Third straight home game for the 'Boys, but little seems to matter, as this team has lost its last 3 games, by a combined score of 90-22 (-61 points ATS) with just 1 touchdown in its last 11 quarters. Check Dak with 5 picks in last 2 games. He threw only 4 a year ago. Another? Okay. Outscored 72-6 in 2nd half of those 3. Redskins a dangerous team, holding Giants to 7 first downs last week.

Eric Musselman’s bevy of transfers all contributing, especially the 6-7 Martin twins (Cody & Caleb) from NC State, combining for 34 ppg in 5-0 start. Moreover, they provide disruptive length on the perimeter, while turbo-charged Pack “O” scoring 88 ppg and connecting on better than 50% from floor in first two weeks also thanks to high-energy 6-7 F Jordan Caroline (18 & 10 first five). That Nevada size on perimeter has already bothered potent Rhode Island and Davidson at Lawlor Center, and not sure if ISU’s high-scorer G Keyshawn Evans (23.8 ppg), all 6-feet of him, is going to be able to get his normal looks against all of that Wolf Pack length

PICK WRITE-UP: Slow start at Wake, as the early departure to NBA of do-everything 6-10 John Collins has changed the Deacon dynamics. Yet to pick up the baton has been expected new go-to guy G Bryant Crawford, who’s taking the most shots of his career while shooting the lowest field goal percentage (34.9) in his three years. Danny Manning’s troops dropped 4 of their first 5, with two losses coming against a pair of teams (Liberty & Drake) ranked outside the top 150 on KenPom.com, (Liberty, Drake). Manning must stop this slide soon as Wake was playing its way out of the NCAA tournament pool before Thanksgiving. Meanwhile, new HC Brad Underwood already working some of his magic with the Fighting Illini, 4-0 out of the chute with handy wins over capable DePaul & Marshall, while tallying 88 ppg with five DD scorers led by emerging 6-7 jr.

Spur HC Gregg Popovich put the “hack-a-Howard” plan into the mix, sending the Hornet pivot to the line 20 times (he made 10). Charlotte, which visited Cleveland last night, has been historically terrible vs. the number in the 2nd night of back-to-backs but covered first two this season.

PICK WRITE-UP: The Toronto Maple Leafs saw their season-high six-game winning streak come to a halt after stumbling against the most unlikely of foes. The Maple Leafs look to regain their footing on Wednesday when they visit the Florida Panthers, who have dropped eight of their last 11 contests. James van Riemsdyk scored his fifth goal in as many games when he converted on the power play just 33 seconds into the second period on Monday, but Toronto saw its third-ranked offense held in check in a 4-1 setback to league-worst Arizona. The 28-year-old's goal with the man advantage was just the team's fifth in the last 13 games, however. Toronto might be able to gain some steam on the power play against Florida, which surrendered two goals while short-handed in its 3-2 loss to Anaheim on Sunday. Vincent Trocheck scored his team-leading ninth goal and added an assist for the Panthers, who limped to a 1-3-1 mark versus the Maple Leafs last season.

The three-time Hart Trophy recipient looks to recapture that magic and snap a six-game goal drought today as the Washington Capitals host the Senators. While Ovechkin is mired in a modest goal-scoring slump, fellow forward Nicklas Backstrom has failed to find the back of the net in his last 15 games - although coach Barry Trotz believes the Swede is knocking on the door. Ottawa would accept anything as it has mustered just three goals overall in its last three games (0-2-1) and is 0-for-11 on the power play in that stretch.

PICK WRITE-UP: Big Ten sources keeping an eye on potentially-upgraded Penn State side with almost everyone back from last season and off to quick 3-0 break from gate in new term. Solid outside-inside combo of potent 6-5 G Tony Carr (20 ppg) & 6-7 F Lamar Stevens (15 ppg) intact from last season. That’s much more than can be said for Pitt, already with losses to Navy and Montana, as Kevin Stallings tries to pick up the pieces from a massively disappointing debut season and with a nation-tying 11 newcomers as a result of 4 seniors graduating & 5 players transferring out.
