Free Expert NCAA Football Picks: Arizona State Sun Devils at Arizona Wildcats Odds This is a good rivalry game — and better now than it has been in a long while because both teams are actually relevant at the same time. It’s also a simultaneously thrilling and frustrating spot for the teams. The winner of this one will wind up 7-2 in the conference, which gives them no worse than a share of the division crown. NBA Odds and Predictions: Friday, November 28 Opening Line Report and Handicapping The Thanksgiving day off in the NBA schedule is a good time to check out some updated NBA futures at as every team is about 20 percent through its schedule or will be soon. Not much has changed. Cavs-Spurs remains the NBA Finals favored matchup, albeit at a longer +650. Cavs-Warriors is next at +800. Cleveland has risen to +120 to win the East, and San Antonio up to +250 to take the West. LeBron James remains the MVP favorite at +140, but Anthony Davis and Stephen Curry (+300) are right on his tail. Here's a look at every Friday matchup on a busy day. Free Expert NFL Picks: Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers Odds and Predictions I can't believe it has taken until Week 13 for the NFL to schedule the first meeting of the season between the Seahawks and 49ers, easily the best and most-heated rivalry in the league right now. But the wait has been worth it. Seattle opened the season as the Super Bowl favorite, with San Francisco not far behind at No. 3 (Denver in between). Presumably either the Seahawks or 49ers would win the NFC West and take the top seed in the conference and the other would get the top wild-card spot. NFL Picks: Thanksgiving Special Props Odds and Betting Predictions I used to like to do the "mosts" every Friday during football season here at Doc's, but I haven't really seen the sportsbooks list those props this season. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong place. You know, the most yards rushing in a week, most passing and most receiving. Well, Bovada has come through for us this week on the excellent Thanksgiving tripleheader. Just another reason to love Turkey Day football. Expert NFL Betting Picks: Weekly NFC East Predictions Week 13 When last week’s NFC ‘pick of the week’ came out, I had Dallas -4.5 points over the Giants as my 4-Unit play. The spread closed at three points to make this game a wash, which is why it is always important to track line movements as the week wears on. Since I am counting this game as a loss, my year-to-date record with these free picks now stands at 8-4. NFL Survivor Pool Picks and Expert Advice: Week 13 Chances are the team you back is still alive in the playoff hunt as an amazing 21 teams are either currently in the playoffs or within one game of a spot entering Week 13. Naturally my Bears aren't one of those, and the Lions can mercifully end Chicago's season for all intents and purposes on Thanksgiving. That 21-team mark is a bit misleading because it includes Atlanta, New Orleans and Carolina, all of which have seven losses. But someone has to win the puke bucket that is the NFC South. College Basketball Futures Odds: Looking for a Winner from Average of Recent Champs With Kentucky looking absolutely unbeatable thus far, including a domination of No. 6 Kansas, 72-40, and outscoring their opponents by an average of 37 points, oddsmakers have made the Wildcats the clear-cut favorite to win it all in 2015. The media and the public are ready to give them the title already in November as they have an unbelievably talented roster that contains eight McDonald’s All-Americans. NFL Totals Betting: Week 13 Over and Under Predictions Overall, the year-to-date record for my free picks for Doc’s Sports on the “over/under” line stands at 17-18-1 after going 2-1 with last week’s results. I favored the “over” in two of the three picks, and overall that play ended up with a slight 8-7 edge in all the NFL games in Week 12.
