First thing first, everyone will be receiving a free week extension to their membership to make up for this weekend. If you have recurring payments, the free week will be added onto the backend of your membership. #ManOfThePeople. This weekend is a reminder that no matter how good certain matchups look, anything can happen. We missed the Steelers by 1 point. We missed the Texans by 1 point. We missed the Chargers by 1 point. Those 3 points would have completely turned around the day that we had yesterday but unfortunately it didn’t work out. Today is a fresh start, a new week, and this past weekend is in the past. Let’s move forward and let’s do it in a big way.
Monday Night Football Teaser
Chiefs (+9) / Over (57.5) - Tonight is the game of the year in the NFL and a lot of people are saying that it is a SuperBowl Preview. It could be! I think this will be a close game tonight and I think this will be a HIGH scoring game tonight. We basically need 30 a side for the teased over to hit but a good number to see is that both of these teams have scored 30+ in 8 of their 10 games this season. I like the Chiefs in this game and I LOVE the Chiefs teased up to +9. The big thing that stands out to me in this one is the fact that the Rams have only faced an offense similar to the Chiefs one time this season and they lost that game to the Saints 45-35. I think the Chiefs will probably win this game tonight but teasing them up to +9 should be an absolute lock, and so should the over at 57.5.
Celtics (-2.5) - The Celts had a tough loss to the Jazz on Saturday but that was after a back to back after an overtime game. Tonight should be a good bounce back game for them against a Hornets team that has lost two in a row including a double digit loss to the 2-12 Cavaliers. Lol. The Celts should be able to get the offense going against this Hornets team that doesn’t play any defense (allowing 110 points per game) and when this Celtics offense gets going, they look unbeatable at times. Give me the -2.5 in this one.
Duke / San Diego State Over (157) - Both of these teams have shown that they are capable of scoring 100 points this season. Duke is averaging 98 points per game through three games. San Diego State is coming off of a game where they scored 103. The Duke defense will be a different challenge for SDST but I think Duke will score close to 100 in this game so that would mean we only need 60 points or so for this SDST team who has scored 103 and 76. The spread is 14 in this one but I like the over more. This game tips at 4:30 EST so if you are betting it, make sure you get your bet in in time.
Gonzaga (-14.5) - We are going to start riding the Zags and these large spreads until they give us a reason not to. The Zags are 3-0 this season and they have won by an average of 33 points in those games. They take on an Illinois team tonight who is just 1-1 and are coming off of an 8 point loss to Georgetown. I like the Zags to put together another blowout win tonight. 11:30 P.M. EST so this one will be tipping off right around the end of the Monday Night Football game.
