Easy money on Saturday with my 9th Ever College Football 150 Dime Winner on Clemson (-28') in their Ho-Hum 62-14 win and cover over Virginia.

It was a little more of a sweat on Sunday, but my 6th Ever NFL 150 Dime Winner was on the Pittsburgh Steelers (-2) over Arizona, 23-17.

Right back after it on Monday to close Week 14 of the NFL season.

NFC East Rivalry Lock

N.Y. Giants-Philadelphia

All about adding another winner to the equation, and this Giants-Eagles meeting will be a winner - rest assured.

Monday night comp play goes on the Orlando Magic plus the generous points as they play at the Milwaukee Bucks.

Milwaukee comes into this home game having won 14 straight games. The Bucks are 20-3 for the year, and they have also covered in each of their last 4 wins, but tonight they are laying a few points too many against an Orlando team that has also been playing some solid hoops entering action tonight.

The Magic has won 4 in a row straight up and 5 of their last 6 games overall. They have also covered in each of their last 3 and 4 of their last 5 road games this season.

Milwaukee is only 6-5 against the spread on their home court this season, as the oddsmakers have been asking them to cover some pretty big imposts this season at home. The Bucks stand at just 2-6 against the spread when favored between 10 to 14 1/2 points, and while they did rout Orlando by a 123-91 score on November 1st, Orlando did win outright in their last visit to Milwaukee last February. 

Not going to call for an outright upset tonight, but this impost is just a little to big for the home team to cover tonight is the way I see it.

Milwaukee's win streak will move to 15 in a row, but the cover tonight belongs to the underdog Magic.

Take Orlando plus the points.

Minnesota at PHOENIX (-4)

By Stephen DeAngelo, Featured Handicapper

First-ever 60 Dime play wasn’t meant to be Sunday, as the Packers left the backdoor wide open against the Redskins.

 

Not exactly pleased with yesterday’s result, obviously. But I’m more than pleased with the fact that I’m still 9-2-1 in the NFL (good for 249 Dimes of net profit) and still on an overall 20-9 roll (good for 321.5 Dimes of net profit).

 

Back at it Monday with a 30 Dime NFC East Game of the Month on tonight’s Giants-Eagles clash from Philly. I’ve nailed eight of my last nine 30 Dime plays, and tonight I’ll make it nine of 10.

 

Yes, the D-Train jumped the track yesterday. But that’s why you build the monster bankroll I’ve built for myself and my clients over the last month: So you can absorb a bad day or even a bad week. The results are there in black and white for you to review. Once you do, I think you’ll agree those results are still damn impressive.

On a nice 4-2 run with complimentary selections after the 49ers got it done in New Orleans on Sunday. For Monday’s freebie, we’ll head to the NBA and play the Suns as a home favorite against Minnesota.


This is a really tough spot for the Timberwolves, who are coming off last night’s 142-125 loss to Anthony Davis (50 points) and the Lakers. They never threatened to cover as a 10-point underdog, dropping them to 0-4 SU and ATS in their last four games. A commonality in those four defeats: Minnesota’s defense was nowhere to be found, as it surrendered (in order) 115 points to the Grizzlies, 121 to Dallas, 139 to Oklahoma City and 142 to Los Angeles.

 

Tonight also marks the end of a four-game, six-day road trip for the TWolves, while the Suns return home after their own four-game trip in which they alternated wins and losses in Charlotte (109-104 win), Orlando (128-114 loss), New Orleans (139-132 win) and Houston (115-109 loss).

 

Phoenix already beat the TWolves once this season, prevailing 100-98 as a 4½-point road underdog back on Nov. 23. What’s notable about that result is Minnesota entered that game with two full days of rest following a home loss to the Jazz. Tonight, the TWolves are in a back-to-back AND three-games-in-four-nights situation, plus they’re capping what’s been a miserable road trip during which the defense has gotten progressively worse in each game.

 

Throw in the fact that all of Minnesota’s road losses this season have been by seven points or more, and I’m confident laying the chalk with the Suns is a smart investment.
