FREE PICK SATURDAY: #626 West Virginia -4 over Florida 1:00 PM CT
Florida will be an easy team to root for this season as the team has rallied after the scary situation with Keyontae Johnson’s health. With three straight wins the Gators are now 6-3 in SEC play but only the home win over Tennessee stands out and the Volunteers are clearly sliding from their hot start to the season. Florida has faced the 13th rated SEC schedule and now leaves conference play for a very difficult road test. West Virginia is only 4-3 in the Big XII but the three losses have been vs. top 20 caliber squads with two of those games on the road. The only home loss all season came by two points to Texas in a wild finish of a game the Mountaineers led most of the second half. Bob Huggins is leading a team that likely can wind up as a top 30 offensive and defensive efficiency team by season’s end and this is as usual a team with great numbers in the rebounding and turnover departments. Florida has been a strong outside shooting team but this isn’t a group that takes a high volume of 3-point shots and the current lineup is young and small as handling this as handling the furthest road venue of the season so far will be a challenge. Three of Florida’s four losses have come by double-digits and against top 15 caliber teams the Gators are 0-2 with losses by 12 and 15. Despite one of the most favorite schedules in the SEC Florida grades as the 10th best defense in the conference and Michael White’s team has lost the past two years in this annual contest with the Big XII.

Free Pick Thursday: #959/960 UNDER 9
Pittsburgh Pirates (Williams) at Cincinnati Reds (DeSclafani) 4:10 PM CT
Pittsburgh and Cincinnati have both struggled offensively but the problems have been almost exclusively vs. right-handed pitching. The Pirates for instance have a very strong .855 team OPS vs. left-handers but suffer a dramatic decline vs. right-handers with a dreadful .521 team OPS. Cincinnati meanwhile is an above average hitting team vs. lefties as well with a .775 team OPS but falls below .700 vs. right-handers. Trevor Williams had a fortunate 2018 season and regressed last season. He could be poised to land somewhere in the middle as a capable starter this season. So far that has been the case with a 3.52 ERA and a 8.2 K/9. Williams can be a home run risk and home runs tells the story in the disparity of his 2018 and 2019 seasons. The Reds have some power with 27 home runs this season but they have just 19 in 466 plate appearances vs. right-handers and ultimately have a .197 team batting average in those matchups. The Reds have topped five runs in nine innings just once in the past 12 games while since the calendar turned to August Reds pitching has allowed more than five runs only twice. 3-13 Pittsburgh exploded for 13 runs on Friday but has scored six runs in the past two games. A long layoff with games vs. St. Louis cancelled isn’t likely to help the offense while it will provide some rest for the bullpen. Anthony DeSclafani has not allowed a run while allowing only five hits in 11 innings of work in 2020. He turned a corner last season after an uneven start to his career and was a very effective pitcher for the Reds in 2019. His risk for allowing home runs should be minimal vs. Pittsburgh and that is usually his downfall as he has strong command and is capable of strikeouts. Nine seems like a reach for these teams in a righty/righty matchup with two of the better starters for each team.
Bobby Dalton is 6-2 in MLB 10* Best Bets this season! He won his Trips-2-Win offer last night and he has a big TOTAL play for Wednesday’s schedule in his next guaranteed offer. Add to that 75% Best Bet run with tonight’s selection for $19!

Nelly’s cashed in with another NBA winner on Friday and we’ve had a good start to the 2020 MLB season as well. We’ll have updates for Saturday by 11 AM CT and will try to post a free pick on this page later this morning as well.
Free Pick Saturday: #907 Atlanta Braves (Wright) + over Philadelphia Phillies (Arrieta) 5:05 PM CT
Kyle Wright lacks quality numbers at the MLB level but he was the fifth pick in the 2017 draft and still has endless potential. Atlanta’s rotation challenges have left him with a spot moving forward with a longer leash than he might have had otherwise and he should grow into the role. He owns a 12.0 K/9 but walks have been a big problem. The positive offensive numbers for the Phillies have come through a tiny sample size as Philadelphia’s schedule has been flipped upside down in the first two weeks of the season. The Braves remain one of the most dangerous offensive teams with a 74 runs in 14 games and despite the surprising start from the Marlins, Atlanta remains the team to beat in the NL. Jake Arrieta was arguably the best pitcher in baseball in 2015 and 2016 but he has been medicore since with his strikeout numbers declining substantially. He has been a below .500 starter since joining the Phillies and he is on pace for a fifth straight season with an ERA that has climbed. He still commands some line respect as a former Cy Young winner on a popular team and the Braves are worth a look at this price in just about any NL matchup this season.
#618 Rutgers +1.5 over Penn State 6:00 PM CT
Rutgers needs to be taken seriously in the Big Ten race. The Scarlet Knights are already 2-1 in league play with the only defeat in East Lansing while this team also has a non-conference win over Seton Hall. The overall schedule hasn’t been overly difficult but Rutgers won a Big Ten road game last week and is 10-0 at home this season with seven of those wins coming by double-digits. Losing Geo Baker to a thumb injury is a big blow for the long term hopes for the Knights but Rutgers won convincingly at Nebraska Friday and could still remain a competitive team against the middle tier teams in the conference. The interior scoring should remain strong and Steve Pikiell’s team has delivered nationally elite defensive numbers so far in his fourth season. Penn State has seven top 100 wins this season but only two would counts as high of quality as Rutgers and both of those games were in favorable close-to-home or home venues. Saturday’s three-point win in Philadelphia over Iowa featured great fortune as they trailed nearly the entire second half before watching the Hawkeyes falter at the line. Penn State only has one true road win all season and that game was nearly two months ago as this is a dangerous spot on the schedule for a team that has had several narrow wins on the season to boost the record. Penn State lost at home in this series last season while winning by only one in the road meeting and while both teams are clearly improved the Lions haven’t proven they can win Big Ten road games yet.
Nelly’s has turned in back-to-back college winners the past two days including an underdog that won by double-digits last night. We’ve hit over 60% this season and are on a 16-6 run in college basketball while plus nearly 100 stars the past three basketball regular seasons combined!
Bobby Dalton is on an 8-0 run with a perfect start in 2020 while 10-0 conference game picks so far this basketball season!
Big E is riding an 11-5 run in basketball Biggies and has 15* and 20* picks planned this week:
