THE DAILY PUCK DROP – 3/4/2021 – NHL DFS MAIN SLATE

Welcome everyone to Daily Play Action’s Hockey content for the 2021 NHL season! My name is Sam Duchesneau and I go by @GronkDFS on Twitter, it is a pleasure to be here with you all again tonight! It’s Thursday’s free article on this NHL DFS 10 gamer! It should be an electric slate with a lot of goals tonight so let’s jump right in!

Prior to getting started, please note that I am available to take your questions in the DPA Slack Chat by opting into the Playmaker Gold Package, so subscribe, and send me your lineups and your questions so that I can put you in the best possible position to cash on in NHL DFS on the site of your choosing!

TOR1 Cash Stack: Thornton – Matthews – Marner

Fanduel: $21,400 (39% of salary) / DraftKings: $20,900 (42% of salary)

Matthews is back from his injury and he looked great despite not getting an assist or a goal. The Maple Leafs are the best offense in the NHL and it’s mainly because of this awesome, fully correlated line. Tonight they will face the Vancouver Canucks. They own the 3rd worse goals per game allowed at 3.46 as well as having the 14th best PK at 80.4% while taking around 3.90 penalties per game (Top 3 in the NHL). TOR1 owns a solid 36SCCF, 8HDCF, a 63CF%, and a 2.14xGF. They will match up against VAN1 for around 85% of the game. They own a bottom-average 34SCA, 9HDCA, and a 2.47xGA. Those numbers aren’t the worst but they are far from good. In 3 games this season, the Leafs won 7-3, 5-1, and 3-1 against the Canucks. TOR1 has been excellent against them. Matthews has 5 goals in 3 games against the Canucks this season. While this stack should be owned, I believe it is the safest with the most upside tonight.

Other viable stacks: CAR1 (Svechnikov, Aho, and Teravainen); FLA1 (Verhaeghe, Barkov, and Vatrano); TB1 (Palat, Point, and Johnson)

PHI1 GPP Stack: JVR – Couturier – Konecny? (Farabee just announced out)

Fanduel: $19,700 (36% of salary) / DraftKings: $21,000 (42% of salary)

The Flyers are on the road and will be facing the Penguins once again. The Flyers are 5th in the NHL with 3.32 goals/game while the Penguins are allowing 3.19/game good for the 5th worse in the NHL. On top of that, the Penguins have a below-average PK at 74.2% which is the 6th worse in the NHL. The Flyers own a 17.7% PP good for 20th in the NHL. When it comes to line matching, PHI1 owns a 39SCF, 9HDCF, 66CF%, and a solid 2.77xGF. They will be facing PIT1 for around 75% of the time. They own a solid 23SCA, 8HDCA, and a 1.88xGA dating back to last season. Those are solid stats hence why I would call this a GPP stack. Regardless, I expect to have a few pieces of PHI1 in cash. Flyers won 6-3, 5-2, and lost 2-5 in their most recent game against the Penguins.

Other viable stacks: OTT3 (Stutzle, Anisimov, and Batherson); NYR2 (Kreider, Strome, and Blackwell); WPG1 (Statsny, Scheifele, and Wheeler)

Favorite players by position

Centers

Austin Matthews| $8900 (FD) | $8900 (DK)

Matthews is easily the most reliable stud this season and he is once again facing a poor defensive team (Pretty common in this North division). No matter his ownership, he is a must tonight for me. He is nearly a one goal per game player and that is insane. Fade at your own risk but that’s the one stud I wouldn’t keep out of my lineups.

Sebastian Aho | $7400 (FD) | $6200 (DK)

Aho has been quite solid this season but he has had a few stretches of struggling goals-wise. He scored 38 goals in only 68 games last season. That struggle has made him underpriced on DK. He gets a phenomenal matchup tonight against the Red Wings and Carolina plays a fast pace which is always perfect for Aho to break the slate. CAR1 will be Svechnikov, Aho, and Teravainen which was an amazing line last season. On FanDuel, playing Trocheck over Aho is without a doubt a solid pivot. Trocheck is underpriced and has been playing like a stud this season. He is also on PP1 alongside Aho

Honorable Mentions: Scheifele, Couturier, Barkov, Malkin, Tavares, Point, Barzal, Zibanejad, Trocheck, Suzuki, Ryan Strome, Dubois, Hughes, Staal, and Backlund

Wingers

Joe Thornton | $4700 (FD) | $4100 (DK)

As usual, I want an extra edge on the Matthews chalk and I love Toronto tonight. Thornton is on the same line as Matthews and the same PP and is way cheaper than Marner. While Marner is a much better player, Thornton is still able to produce decently for his price tag and he often hits his value. His downfall is that he doesn’t shoot or score many goals but he’s a cheap player facing the Canucks who has 11 points in 12 games, sign me up!

J̶o̶e̶l̶ ̶F̶a̶r̶a̶b̶e̶e̶|̶ ̶$̶5̶5̶0̶0̶ ̶(̶F̶D̶)̶ ̶|̶ ̶$̶6̶3̶0̶0̶ ̶(̶D̶K̶)̶ ̶

Farabee is out. I expect Konecny or Voracek to take his spot. Similar plays I like in his price range are Svechnikov, Teravainen, Rust or Palat on FanDuel. On DraftKings I like Svechnikov, Hornqvist, Huberdeau, Rust or Connor. See other option listed below.

Honorable Mentions: Stamkos, Marner, Guentzel, Huberdeau, Wheeler, Connor, Nylander, Kreider, JVR, Brady Tkachuk, Toffoli, Ehlers, Teravainen, Svechnikov, Palat, Rust, Statsny, Batherson, Killorn, Kapanen, Necas, Stuetzle, Johnson, Verhaeghe, Hornqvist, Vatrano, and Tolvanen

Defenseman

Dougie Hamilton | $5200 (FD) | $6800 (DK)

Dougie is always chalk even in tougher matchups. Tonight, he gets an amazing matchup so expect him to be 50% or more. I would roster him on FanDuel and he is well priced for this matchup. On DraftKings, I would fade him as this price tag is way too high. He doesn’t hit the BS bonus and rarely hits the shot bonus. I would pay down for two solid value defensemen on DraftKings.

Adam Fox | $4700 (FD) | $6600 (DK)

It seems like every defenseman is a bit underpriced on FanDuel and beyond overpriced on DraftKings. Either way, Fox has a solid floor and he can get points. He is also not worth it on DraftKings tonight. The matchup is great on the PP though since NJ owns the worst PK in the NHL. My cheaper defenseman would be Yandle, Morrisey, Severson, Tanev (BS bonus), Weegar, Boqvist, and McDonagh

Honorable Mentions: Hedman, Josi, Petry, Letang, Rielly, Chabot, Ekblad, Weber, Yandle, Morrisey, McDonagh, Pesce, Subban, Severson, Gostibehere, Slavin, Weegar, and Ty Smith

Goaltenders

Alex Nedeljkovic | $7800 (FD) | $8200 (DK)

I tried to pronounce his name but man it was not easy. Anyways, he has been solid for Carolina thus far. Detroit’s offense is 2nd worst in the NHL and bottom 10 defensively. Carolina is top 10 offensively and 11th defensively. The win is safe here!

Andrei Vasilevskiy | $8800 (FD) | $8500 (DK)

Vasy has three straight shutouts and he has been phenomenal that he is nearly locked for the Vezina trophy already with only a third of the season done. Unreal. The Hawks can score but Tampa too and Tampa is much better defensively. He is also an extremely safe option tonight.

Honorable Mentions: Varlamov, Andersen, Hellebuyck, Elliot, and Shersterkin

Recap

Don’t forget to check Twitter (DailyFaceoff) for warmup line rushes to gain an edge on your competition! TOR1, PHI1, CAR1, NYR2, TB1, TB2, OTT3, TOR2, FLA1, FLA2, and NYI1 are what I will be targeting tonight! Good luck!

NCAA Basketball – 3.4.2021 – Best Bets for Thursday’s College Hoops (Free)

Hello Daily Play Action! Anthony Marro here happy to share my NCAA Men’s Basketball picks for the college hoops season. Over the past three years I provided readers with over 600 winning bets. Betting write-ups will be posted exclusively on DPA almost every day, but be sure to follow my Twitter too so you won’t miss a pick on days with abbreviated slates. And if you want to try out a website to bet on my picks, I highly recommend using Bovada for their user-friendly format and awesome deposit bonuses!

  • Overall Record: 606-569-23
  • Season Record: 172-182-5

Southern Illinois -2.5 vs Bradley

  • Bradley is really thin at the moment. This team has found a lot of success in the MVC Tournament as of late, but with just six scholarship players available I think they struggle here against the Salukis. I am taking a chance and fading the two time defending MVC Champions based on their lack of depth alone
  • Southern Illinois is coming off two close games against one of the country’s best squads, Loyola Chicago. Both games were decided by 8 points or fewer despite the Salukis being nearly 20 point underdogs. Their 5-13 conference record is not the most appealing, but they already beat this Bradley team once back when they were at full strength

Oklahoma State vs Baylor, Over 148

  • Oklahoma State has averaged 78 points per game during their recent five game winning streak. Their first matchup with Baylor was a 81-66 loss in Waco, but they played that game without freshman sensation Cade Cunningham. The likely first overall pick should make this a much more competitive and high scoring game tonight
  • Baylor has cashed the over in seven of their last eight games. Their once stout defense has fallen off as of late, allowing over 70 points in three consecutive games after only doing so in three of their 17 prior contests. After seeing Iowa State drop 72 on the Bears home court, I am sure the Cowboys can put up similar offensive numbers this evening

Texas vs Oklahoma, Over 143.5

  • Texas is 14-8 to the over this season. They are averaging 75 points per game. The first matchup between these two teams totaled 159 points, easily cashing the high. I expect an extremely competitive game once again and feel like this betting line is a bit too low. This will likely come down to the final few possessions
  • Oklahoma has lost three consecutive games and a win today would go a long way in improving their seeding this March. They allowed an average of over 78 points per game over this stretch and will need to make major adjustments to slow down these Longhorns. Austin Reaves will likely have another 20-point performance

Colorado -10 vs Arizona State

  • Colorado is 8-3 against the spread at home this season, winning by an average of 18 points and covering by approximately 7.5 points per game. The elevation at Boulder may be the best home court advantage in the country, especially in a season where fan attendance is minimal
  • Arizona State has lost four consecutive road games themselves. This team has finally strung together a couple of victories, but they came against very weak competition in Washington and Washington State. They are banged up pretty significantly and I doubt they keep things close against a Top 25 opponent here

I am confident in every pick that I provide and play them myself. College basketball is unpredictable and that’s why we love it, so always bet smart!

2021 Arnold Palmer Invitational – PGA DFS – 03/04 Top Plays

Hello Playmakers! PGA DFS Golf is back with PGA Tour’s 2021 Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill Club & Lodge this week. DPA Staff Colin Lynch here and excited to bring you my breakdown of this event!

The tournament features a 123 player field consisting of PGA Tour and European Tour regulars. These players will tee off against one another starting Thursday 7:00am EDT at Bay Hill Club & Lodge, located in Orlando, Florida. The course will play as a par 72 measuring over 7,400 yards and will feature Bermuda greens. The Top 65 and Tied make the cut for the weekend after the completion of 36 holes.

Top Tier Targets

Rory Mcllroy ($11,500)

Rory was featured in last weeks article and he came through posting a 6th place finish at The WGC Workday Championship. Mcllroy managed to gain strokes in all four facets (tee, approach, around green, green) last week and I’ll be hopping right back on again at Bay Hill. Rory is one of the best drivers of the golf ball in world and this course sets up beautifully for his game. We know the form is there, and we know Bermuda is by far his best putting surface. Rory has the best course history in the field at this event, highlighted by four straight Top 6’s (5th, 6th, 1st, 4th).

Viktor Hovland ($10,600)

Hovland makes the article again for the third consecutive week. He’s been on absolute fire and coming off a 2nd place finish last week at The WGC Workday Championship. In his last six events worldwide, Viktor has five Top 6 finishes (2nd, 5th, 6th, 2nd, 31st, 1st) and he hasn’t missed a cut in twenty one starts on tour. Hovland is an elite ball stiker who leads the field in total strokes gained over the last fifty rounds. He also ranks Top 10 on tour in strokes gained ball striking and strokes gained tee to green.

Sungjae Im ($9,700)

Sungjae is a Bermuda Specialist who has a great track record playing in the state of Florida. He posted a Top 30 (28th) finish last week and he now returns to a course where he’s posted back to back 3rd place finishes the last two years. It’s safe to say Im loves playing here. In last years event, he ranked 3rd in total drving, 2nd in greens in regulation, 3rd in proximity, and 5th in par 5 scoring. Im ranks Top 10 (in the field) in strokes gained off the tee and strokes gained ball striking. Bermuda is his best putting surface.

Middle Tier Targets

Sam Burns ($8,400)

Burns posted a 3rd place finish and nearly won at The Genesis Invitational his last time out. He’s a bomber that can putt and he’s very good on Bermuda tracks. He ranks Top 5 in strokes gained off the tee and also ranks inside the Top 15 in strokes gained putting. Burns is in solid form right now, posting Top 25’s in three of his last four events on tour. He possesses big birdie upside and ranks Top 10 in the field in strokes gained off the tee. Sam has three career starts at this event and has yet to miss a cut.

Jason Kokrak ($8,100)

Kokrak enters the Arnold Palmer Invitational on the heels of a 9th place finish last week. He was one of ten golfers last week to not record a single double bogey on their score card. Jason is one of the more consistent golfers on the PGA TOUR, he’s an elite ball striker with an underated short game. Since the start of the new year, he’s made six straight cuts and hasn’t missed one yet. Kokrak has some great course history at this event, highlighted by three Top 10’s among five Top 20’s, including a 18th and 10th his last two starts.

Value Tier Targets

Cameron Tringale ($7,700)

Tringale is in great form and he continues to play very solid gold. Cameron has four consecutive Top 26 finishes on tour (26th, 7th, 17th, 18th). He’s a well rounded golfer that is good off the tee, great with his irons, and fantastic at making birdies and limiting bogeys. Tringale ranks Top 10 in both bogey avoidance and birdie or better percentage. He’s made three straight cuts at this event and posted a Top 30 finish in his last start here.

Corey Conners ($7,300)

Conners is my favorite value play on the slate. He’s coming off a missed cut ‘on the number’ at the Genesis Inivational but made nine straight prior. Corey is one of the better ball strikers in the field and he’s a significantly better golfer than those priced around him. Conners tee to green game is elite, he ranks Top 10 in strokes gained approach and Top 20 in birdie or better percentage and bogey avoidance. In his last ten starts on tour, Conners has posted seven Top 25 finishes.

Honorable Mentions

Bryson DeChambeau ($11,000)

Tyrrell Hatton ($10,000)

Matthew Fitzpatrick ($9,800)

Francesco Molinari ($8,700)

Ian Poulter ($7,300)

Punts

Zach Johnson ($6,900)

Matthew NeSmith ($6,900)

Erik Van Rooyen ($6,900)

Doug Ghim ($6,600)

Adam Long ($6,400)

NCAA Basketball – 3.3.2021 – Best Bets for Wednesday’s College Hoops (Free)

Hello Daily Play Action! Anthony Marro here happy to share my NCAA Men’s Basketball picks for the college hoops season. Over the past three years I provided readers with over 600 winning bets. Betting write-ups will be posted exclusively on DPA almost every day, but be sure to follow my Twitter too so you won’t miss a pick on days with abbreviated slates. And if you want to try out a website to bet on my picks, I highly recommend using Bovada for their user-friendly format and awesome deposit bonuses!

  • Overall Record: 604-567-23
  • Season Record: 170-180-5

Connecticut -1.5 at Seton Hall

  • Connecticut is 14-4 against the spread this season and has looked excellent ever since the return of James Bouknight. He has averaged over 20 points per game in his four contests back in action. Pair that with the Connecticut defense allowing just 65 points per game and you have a team that is primed to make a run this March
  • It is senior night in Newark this evening and it remains to be seen whether or not Bryce Aiken will play. He seems to have knee and ankle injuries that need more time to recover, but there is a chance he tries to give it a go on his home court. There is clear risk of re-injury if he does play and Seton Hall has no secondary scoring option without him

North Carolina State vs Notre Dame, Over 144

  • North Carolina State is 9-0 to the over while on the road this season. Normally I would worry a bit about the pace here as they face a more down tempo Notre Dame squad. However, the Fighting Irish are coming off a regulation loss where they scored 90 points this past Saturday. The winner here should at least surpass 80 here this evening
  • Notre Dame is very efficient offensively, averaging 55 percent from the field as a team. The Wolfpack has looked dangerous during their four game winning streak and I think they have the offense to keep up with the Irish here. Their scoring is much better balanced than it had been earlier this season

Creighton vs Villanova, Over 146.5

  • This is a huge game in the Big East between two elite scoring teams. These squads combined for 156 points in their previous meeting and now face off in Villanova where the Wildcats have been playing lights out. Both are ranked inside the top 15 in the country in terms of offensive efficiency. This total is really lined lower than it should be
  • Both teams will start all upperclassmen in this game, aside from Jeremiah Robinson-Earl on Villanova. He is one of the best offensive centers in the country and may end up winning conference Player of the Year in his sophomore campaign. These squads have no problem hitting their shots and each need a win here in order to avoid dropping two games in a row

Eastern Washington -13 vs Idaho State

  • Eastern Washington is 12-5 against the spread this season. They are quite clearly the best team in the Big Sky and I think their offense is just miles ahead of Idaho State’s. They average 80 points per game and have shot just shy of 55 percent from the field. This spread should not be too tough to cover in this matchup. They are looking for their tenth consecutive win
  • Idaho State has played awful offensive basketball. They take extremely long on most possessions and often seem hesitant to shoot. This is just the second Quad II or better opponent they have faced all year. They also have just three wins inside the KenPom top 200. I do not see them keeping things at all competitive in this matchup

I am confident in every pick that I provide and play them myself. College basketball is unpredictable and that’s why we love it, so always bet smart!

League of Legends – LPL – 3/3 – Breakdown – LoL DFS

League of Legends – LPL – 3/3 – Breakdown – LoL DFS

Who’s ready for some League of Legends, Playmakers! Robbie Catterton a.k.a. TeamCATT here, ready to provide all of you the information necessary to compete consistently in the unpredictable, crazy and awesome world that we call eSports!

For all of our new playmakers wondering who is this guy trying to get me interested in the world of eSports, I am known as TeamCATT here at Daily Play Action. Born and raised in Virginia Beach, VA playing and following all sports growing up and was lucky enough to compete in both Football and Baseball at the Division I Collegiate level. I have been involved in DFS since 2017 and have been full go in this life we call Daily Fantasy Sports ever since. Just like many of you, I had never played eSports in DFS before the major sports leagues stopped back in March, but dove in immediately after we lost our favorite pastimes and have risen all the way to currently being ranked in the Top 25 Nationally in eSports in less then 2 months of playing, to go along with a Top 250 National ranking in all sports.

Alright enough about me, let’s get onto the real reason were all here today; League of Legends DFS!

Week 7 (Best of 3)

LPL Game 1: Rare Atom (RA) – eStar (ES)

Opening our LPL slate brings us Rare Atom taking on eStar in the first of two lopsided games this slate. Rare Atom comes in as overwhelming favorites and with the form they have been in I can see why. While eStar sits near the bottom of the LPL standings, they also possess a squad fully capable of upsetting anyone on any given day. My main reason for saying this is that ES are an extremely aggressive team who likes to bring the fight early and often and if they can catch an early lead they have the ability to pull the upset. With that said RA have been playing lights out lately and since JNG Leyan $7,200 (9 kills, 11 assists per game) has been inserted into the lineup they have been extremely tough. MID FoFo $7,800 (7 kills, 14 assists per game) makes for a great stacking partner with his JNG as ES will be starting a new mid laner in the morning fresh from the academy roster. ADC iBoy $7,600 (8 kills, 11 assists per game) will be going against eStar’s strength in this one but if RA are to win he will be vital to any success they have making him a great play as well. eStar are a team that loves to frustrate you as they are fully capable of putting up over twenty kills in wins making them very fantasy friendly but at the same time are more often than not dying twenty times a game in reality. While RA are favored and should win, ES have the aggressive nature to snowball anyone and if looking for the upset I will start my stacks with ADC rat $7,200 (9 kills, 11 assists per game) and SUP ShiauC $5,000 (3 kills, 17 assists per game) as they are the most consistent performers on the squad.

Top Plays RA: MID FoFo $7,800, JNG Leyan $7,200

Top Plays ES: ADC rat $7,200, SUP ShiauC $5,000

LPL Game 2: Team WE (WE) – LGD Gaming (LGD)

Finishing our day off is another heavily favored squad in Team WE taking on LGD Gaming. Team WE sit in the top five and LGD Gaming sit in the bottom five of the LPL right now and tomorrow I cannot see the upset happening. WE are one of the most consistent teams in the LPL and are only getting stronger as the season goes on as MID Shanks $7,400 (6 kills, 16 assists per game) is becoming more and more familiar with his teammates. JNG beishang $7,000 (8 kills, 14 assists per game) has the softest lane matchup on the entire slate in the morning and stacking him with his Mid laner will be a priority of mine in this one. Not to be out done, the bottom lane from Team WE is where the magic tends to happen as ADC Jiumeng $7,800 (10 kills, 12 assists per game) and SUP Missing $5,400 (3 kills, 18 assists per game) are becoming an unstoppable tandem and make for incredible additions to any WE stack. LGD Gaming looked to be heading to the top tier of the LPL after their World’s performance but have since sold off their entire team except for holdover ADC Kramer $7,000 (8 kills, 8 assists per game) and while he is a talented player in his own right he cannot 1v5 this team to victory in my opinion. That being said if going for the upset he is the first name to look at with them as well as TOP Cult $6,000 (3 kills, 9 assists per game) as both seem to be playing well lately. LGD are coming off of back to back wins but against bottom feeders, so I seriously doubt that this is the game we se an upset out of the two.

Top Plays WE: MID Shanks $7,400, JNG beishang $7,000

Top Plays LGD: ADC Kramer $7,000, TOP Cult $6,000

*TeamCATT’s Top Captains: iBoy (ADC $11,400), Jiumeng (ADC $11,700) Leyan (JNG $10,800) *stack specific, beishang (JNG $10,500) *stack specific, rat (ADC $10,800), Kramer (ADC $10,500)

TOP STACKS: WE, RA, ES, LGD

NCAA Basketball – 3.2.2021 – Best Bets for Tuesday’s College Hoops (Free)

Hello Daily Play Action! Anthony Marro here happy to share my NCAA Men’s Basketball picks for the college hoops season. Over the past three years I provided readers with over 600 winning bets. Betting write-ups will be posted exclusively on DPA almost every day, but be sure to follow my Twitter too so you won’t miss a pick on days with abbreviated slates. And if you want to try out a website to bet on my picks, I highly recommend using Bovada for their user-friendly format and awesome deposit bonuses!

  • Overall Record: 603-564-23
  • Season Record: 169-177-5

Cleveland State -7.5 vs Purdue Fort Wayne

  • Purdue Fort Wayne won and advanced in the Horizon League tournament, but they now draw the top seed Cleveland State. These teams met four times already and the Vikings were victorious in all but one. This squad should be well acquainted with their opponent and I do not see them taking their foot of the gas here
  • Cleveland State went 16-7 against the spread this season. Their defense has been their greatest strength and I expect them to hold IPFW under 60 points here today. They have done well on 4+ days rest this season and with the past week off I expect them to look fresh in this matchup

Youngstown State vs Oakland, Over 152

  • No team has cashed the over more frequently than Oakland this season. They are 21-6 to the high and average 157 total points per game. This matchup pits two teams with awful defenses against one another, a recipe for a very high scoring affair. Especially with the fast tempo that Oakland has been known to run the floor with
  • Youngstown State looked good to open the Horizon League tournament, winning 74-58 against Illinois-Chicago. In the four games prior, both Youngstown State and their opponent have topped 70 points apiece. Similarly in Oakland’s past four games, both they and their opponent have  each surpassed 80 points

Vanderbilt vs Louisiana State, Over 156.5

  • Despite losing their past two games, LSU still has one of the top ten offenses in the entire country. They are getting points just about anywhere they want to and still struggle immensely on the defensive end. In this matchup I expect north of 90 points scored against the worst team in the SEC
  • Vanderbilt is not a very talent rich squad, but on any night they can put together high scoring performances based solely on their three point shooting. They are coming of a 11-23 performance from beyond the arc and have scored 40 percent of their total points this season via the three

Kentucky vs Mississippi, Under 131.5

  • Ole Miss has only gone over in 6 of 23 total games this season. They are allowing just 64 points per game to opponents and are favored here today in a matchup against a team just as defensively sound. This could be a bet that goes sour in the final minutes, but all trends point to the under this evening
  • Kentucky has averaged just 67 points per game on the road this season. This team has gotten very thin and the lack of experience clearly heard Coach Calipari’s squad this season. They are still playing their hearts out on defense, but I doubt this team scores on the Rebels with ease tonight. Ole Miss locks things down inside the paint

I am confident in every pick that I provide and play them myself. College basketball is unpredictable and that’s why we love it, so always bet smart!
