ATS - NBA: 18-15 NFL: 18-18 College: 24-25 MLB: 116-91
I can tell you what I’m not thankful for…no late night NBA action yesterday to play catch-up with! Oh well, another day, another dollar hopefully in my pocket. NBA & College Pigskin for ya today Homeboys…enjoy the leftovers and the family cars finally rolling out of town!
BOISE ST. BRONCOS (+3) @ HAWAII RAINBOWS
I know this game is in Honolulu with more distractions for visitors than the NBA All-Star Weekend, but trust me…the Broncos are focused and hyped to spoil the Rainbow Warriors season. After an early September loss at Washington, Boise St. has been getting more dominant by the week and have won their last 3 games by a combined score 152-21 (San Jose St., @ Utah St., Idaho). Besides a balanced offense that will have no problem against an extremely average Hawaii defense, the Broncos secondary has been lights-out and has the depth to handle the bevy of Warrior WRs. While QB Colt Brennan will still put-up ridiculous numbers tonight, Boise St. will have at least 2 or 3 picks and will get plenty of chances to knock around the banged-up signal-caller. As for their O, I’d be shocked if RB Ian Johnson & QB Taylor Tharp didn’t put points on the board on almost every possession.
Final Score: BOISE ST. 55 HAWAII 42
SEATTLE SONICS @ NEW JERSEY NETS (-3)
After an embarrassing 2-week stretch that included a 6-game losing streak and a sprained ankle to Vinsanity, the Nets had to be thankful for relief a trip to the Pacific Northwest. The Nets had Carter back in Portland on Hump Day for a 5-point victory and should look even better tonight against a terrible Sonics squad. Seattle doesn’t have anybody to handle Kidd at the point, while Jefferson & Carter will make Durant look more foolish than Nick Saban standing at the podium…Nets by 8-12 points
DALLAS MAVERICKS (-7) @ INDIANA PACERS
While the hype of the Mavs offense always focuses on Dirk, J-Howard, and J-Terry, the biggest difference in Avery’s squad this year is the development of PG Devin Harris. The lightning-quick point guard has shown confidence in his jump-shot and should have no trouble getting any shot he wants against the O-LAY defense of Jamal Tinsley. Especially with J-O’Neal out, I don’t see how Danny Granger and Mike Dunleavy can keep this thing close…even at home…Mavs by 10-14 points
