About Last Night
Things get crazy late in NFL Week 14 slate
Almost every week in the NFL this season we’ve been talking about what a wild year it’s been, but the Sunday of NFL Week 14 was pretty tame for the most part — until things got crazy with two overtime games in the late afternoon slate and an unexpected shootout on Sunday Night Football! It was a big week for favorite-backers, as the chalk teams went went 12 1 straight up and 11-2 against the spread. Pickwise expert Ricky Dimon found 3 anytime TD scorers in his picks this week, too! Check out all the news from Sunday’s games in our review of what we saw in Week 14.
JutPicks’ golden run on NBA props continues
The Pickswise handicappers went 4-2 on the sides in Sunday’s 6-game NBA slate and also cashed the Sunday parlay of Nets -7, Timberwolves money line and under 221 in Magic vs Lakers! Props expert JutPicks made it 6 straight wins by going 2-0 in Sunday’s games.
Best of the West on MNF
There’s a huge game in the NFC West on Monday Night Football as NFL Week 14 wraps up (ESPN, 8:15 pm ET), with the Los Angeles Rams visiting division leaders the Arizona Cardinals. A home win would keep the Cards ahead of the Packers as NFC No. 1 seeds, but a Rams win would put them right in the race for the divisional title. Read our full preview of Rams vs Cardinals.
Enjoy 9 games in the NBA
We have a nice 9-game slate in the NBA tonight, including an NBA TV doubleheader featuring Warriors vs Pacers at 7:00 pm ET and Suns vs Clippers at 10:30 pm ET. Read our picks for all of today’s basketball.
Quiet day of college basketball
There’s a small slate of NCAA basketball today but, as always, we have picks for today’s top college basketball games.
No NHL after Flames vs Blackhawks postponed
Monday’s sole scheduled NHL game between the Flames and Blackhawks has been postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak in the Flames organization and their games have been postponed at least through Thursday. Six players and one staff members had entered COVID protocols within 24 hours.
Best Bet of the Day
Golden State Warriors -4 vs Indiana Pacers
7:00 pm ET, NBA TV
The Warriors are off to a great start this season but they are only 3-3 in their last 6 games after losing at Philadelphia on Saturday. This span started with a split in back-to-back games against Phoenix, but you can make the case that those teams are the best in the league right now. Steph Curry is going through a bit of a shooting slump, but you don’t want to try to make a living fading the best shooter in NBA history. Golden State is in a great spot for a rebound at Indiana. Check out our full preview of Warriors vs Pacers.
