Lamar Jackson is 100% that dude. He was absolutely amazing last night as he led the Ravens to 45 points on the road against one of the best defenses in the NFL. He is getting some real MVP buzz and this team should absolutely be a favorite to win the whole dang thing. That would be great for the NFL as the Ravens really play an exciting brand of football and more of that would be good for this league. Certainly better than that 13-9 snore fest in the cold that Graeme went to over the weekend.
It’s tournament season in college basketball so we have some great action in those to get to. We also have some important college football MAC-tion tonight. Plus, a really great early season NBA match-up.
A lot to get to so let’s get to the tips.
NBA Betting Tips:
Los Angeles Clippers at Dallas Mavericks: The Mavs are absolutely on fire right now as they have scored 137+ points in three straight games. That is some insane offensive output and Luka Doncic, at the ripe age of 20, should really start getting some MVP buzz. Unfortunately for him and the Mavs, that streak should end tonight as Kawhi Leonard and Paul George bring the Clippers to town.
I think that streak of 137+ points scored is going to end tonight and the Clippers are going to assert themselves as the alpha dog in the West that we all know they are.
I will give a warning here. This is the first half of a back-to-back and Kawhi has typically sat out one of those games. He’s playing tonight as I write this, but monitor that situation. If he’s not, bet the over and skip the team bet.
NCAA Basketball Betting Tips:
Kansas vs. BYU: This is a Maui Invitational game and unless Kansas had a few too many Mai Tais last night, they are going to absolutely dominate this game. This is one of the best teams in all of college basketball and while BYU is known for playing hard, they are not anywhere near the level of the Jayhawks. This team has real NBA prospects and real tournament title hopes. BYU does not. Don’t overthink it.
Wisconsin vs. New Mexico: This game is to decide third place in the Legends Classic in Brooklyn, New York. New Mexico is a team that likes to play up-tempo, but the Badgers are always a strong defensive squad and I think they do well here. New Mexico was absolutely exposed by Auburn in the last round and Wisconsin should follow that blue print here. They are a solid passing team and have a good team offense.
College Football Betting Tips:
Western Michigan at Northern Illinois: We were briefly fooled by Northern Illinois last week, but that won’t happen again. This team is warmed-up garbage while Western Michigan needs this win to help win the MAC West. The team has won three straight and I think tonight they make it four. The line on this is a bit uncomfortable at -8.5, a great trap line, but I just have zero faith in NIU to compete here and think WMU will run all over them.
