  • Event: (53) Vegas Golden Knights at (54) Carolina Hurricanes
    Sport/League: NHL
    Date/Time: January 21, 2018 6PM EST
    Play: Vegas Golden Knights -115

    53 Las Vegas at Carolina

    While the Knights have been involved in close losses on this trip, the analytics say Vegas deserved a better fate. This team has had more shots on goal, more time in the opponents zone and have done everything but get the puck in the net. Carolina doesn't have elite home ice, and the Knights are obviously the faster team.

  • Event: (805) Brooklyn Nets at (806) Detroit Pistons
    Sport/League: NBA
    Date/Time: January 21, 2018 4PM EST
    Play: Brooklyn Nets 6.0 (-110)

    NBA Free Pick to Click: Nets +6 over Pistons
     
    Brooklyn visits Detroit for a scheduled 4:00 p.m. ET at Little Caesars Arena. The Pistons have lost four straight games against a solid against the spread Nets squad who open a five-game road trip with this Sunday afternoon event in the Motor City. NBA Free Pick to Click: Nets +6 over Pistons.
     
    Detroit is coming off a 122-112 setback to the Washington Wizards. The Nets defeated a playoff hopeful on Friday night taking down the Miami Heat by a 101-95 margin. 
     
    The Nets defensive stalwart, DeMarre Carroll, found his offense on Friday night scoring 26 points for Brooklyn in the win and guard D'Angelo Russell played his most minutes since early November. Russell missed two months with a knee injury and the Nets coaching staff will not pressure the young point avoiding any possible setbacks in a season in which this New York group is building on tomorrow. 
     
    Brooklyn coach Kenny Atkinson is doing a terrific job of preparing his team for each and every game. Backup point guard Spencer Dinwiddie has been solid in Russell's absence and outplayed veteran Heat guard Goran Dragic in Friday night's victory at Barclays Center. Dinwiddie recorded 15 points on 6-of-12 shooting against Miami.
     
    Detroit also got a bit healthier this past week. The Pistons coaching staff returned young Stanley Johnson and offered him 12 minutes off the bench after sitting out the previous three and eight of the previous nine games with a hip injury. 
     
    Overall the Pistons youngsters have hit that NBA mid-season wall. And a number of their players are playing through some nagging injuries. Rookie SG Luke Kennard (thumb) scored 16 points on Friday after sitting out the previous game with a thumb injury.
     
    While revenge isn't a large variable in the NBA the Nets would like to return the beat down that the Pistons but on Brooklyn the last time these two met. In truth, it was Detroit's last win, a 114-80 rout at Brooklyn on January 10.
     
    The Nets currently hold the second best ATS mark in the league. And Brooklyn continues to get little respect from the oddsmakers. The Nets have covered nearly 75 percent of their road games (last 15 away contests) since early November with a number of impressive straight up wins during that time span; e.g. at Miami, at Portland, at Atlanta twice, and at Dallas. 
     
    The rout that the Pistons handed the Nets' nearly two weeks ago, a 114-80 loss, was the second game in two days in which they came off an emotional overtime one-point loss to the Toronto Raptors.

  • Event: (815) Northern Iowa at (816) So Illinois
    Sport/League: CBB
    Date/Time: January 21, 2018 4PM EST
    Play: Northern Iowa -0.0 (-106)

    I'm recommending a play on Northern Iowa on Sunday.  Northern Iowa finally has put together two wins in a row after coming back from a 16-point deficit before winning by 14 against Drake on Tuesday.  Former starter, Bennett Koch, came off the bench to spark the Panthers and finished with 19 points and Tywhon Pickford added 16 points and pulled down 10 rebounds.  The Panthers are shooting 48.5 percent their last two games and appear to have new life since coach Ben Jacobson replaced Koch with freshman Austin Phyfe in the starting lineup. Phyfe then scored a career-high 20 points against Valparaiso.  Southern Illinois is basically down to an eight-man rotation due to injuries and Northern Iowa looks to avenge a 56-53 loss to the Salukis on Dec. 28 when the Panthers admittedly came out flat for that game.  The Salukis come off a 79-65 loss at Loyola-Chicago for their third loss in four games and they are 0-4-2 ATS their last six games.  I'm recommending a play on Northern Iowa on Sunday.  Thanks & GL!  Scott Spreitzer.
