College Football pick today: Mississippi State Bulldogs ML over Illinois Fighting Illini (-155), 12:00 pm ET
Two solid 8-4 teams will get together in the ReliaQuest Bowl when the Mississippi State Bulldogs meet the Illinois Fighting Illini. Mississippi State’s high-octane passing attack (313.4 yards per game, 11th in FBS) should be on full display facing an Illinois secondary with some new faces. The Bulldogs have scored 39+ points in 7 different contests this season and although Illinois has been one of the best defensive units all year long, there’s too much turnover on that side of the ball to trust the Illini here. For that reason, backing Mississippi State to win will be the play.

NHL pick today: Boston Bruins ML over Pittsburgh Penguins (-175), 2:07 pm ET
The Pittsburgh Penguins and Boston Bruins will rock Fenway Park as part of the 2023 Winter Classic in a much-anticipated game between two very good teams. The Bruins are the NHL’s number one team with a record of 28-4-4, and they will be looking to treat a heavy attendance of Boston fans to a win outside.
Pittsburgh has been struggling lately with a four-game losing streak, so Boston has a great chance at earning this huge win. There are two major injuries on the Pittsburgh blueline with Kris Letang unlikely to suit up and Jeff Petry on the long-term injured reserve. I expect a highly touted Bruins offense to completely dominate the Penguins, while protecting their own net at a high level. For that reason, backing the Bruins to win the Winter Classic will be the play.

NBA pick today: Denver Nuggets -1.5 over Minnesota Timberwolves (-110), 8:10 pm ET
Fresh off of their impressive home win over Boston last night, the Nuggets head back on the road to face Minnesota. Denver is 12-3 SU in the last 15 head-to-head vs the Timberwolves, but for some reason, they are only 1.5-point favorites here.
Minnesota on the other hand has been in a major slump, seeing that their latest loss was a 12-point home defeat to Detroit, one of the worst teams in the NBA. It was their 6th loss on the bounce, so the dream of making it into the postseason for a 2nd consecutive season is slowly slipping away. They are just 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games, and the Nuggets have also beaten them in 7 of the last 8 meetings at Target Center.
It would take a catastrophic meltdown on the Denver side of things for them not to win tonight’s game. They own the Timberwolves in every meaningful statistical category. For that reason, backing the Nuggets will be the play.

NFL pick today: Buffalo Bills -1.5 over Cincinnati Bengals (-110), 8:15 pm ET
It should be a great Monday Night showdown between the 2 of the top 3 teams in the AFC. It’s a great matchup and there are not a ton of holes to be poked on either side. I will say that outside of Patrick Mahomes, the Bengals have not faced that many good QBs this season. In fact, the Bengals pass defense has faced the 4th easiest schedule of opposing pass offenses based on EPA. Dealing with Josh Allen is a step up in challenge that is tough to prepare for. I trust both of these QBs but I trust the Bills defense just a tad more and Allen’s ability to almost always make a play when needed.
