It’s officially the weekend, Pickswise Nation! We hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and Black Friday, and are excited for all the great action we have to look forward to today and tomorrow across the NBA, NHL, college football, and college basketball. Let’s get right into making your next bet better!

About Last Night

Pickswise hot on the ice with double parlay win!
It may have been Black Friday, but the Pickswise Nation who tailed our NHL parlays definitely saw the light, as our +442 standard parlay and +810 mega parlay both cashed! On top of that, our hockey experts went 9-4 on both the sides and the totals to make it a big-money night. Check out today’s NHL picks for every game.

Cincinnati stays perfect, Texas finally wins
We had a whole host of great college football games on Friday, with the big result coming in Cincinnati’s 35-13 victory over East Carolina to move to 12-0 and keep a solid grip on the #4 ranking. Meanwhile, after losing a historic 6 games in a row, Texas finally secured a W with a 22-17 victory over Kansas State.

Kings crush Lakers in triple-overtime, Warriors keep rolling
It took 3 overtimes to finally separate Sacramento and the Lakers last night, and it was the Kings who eventually came out on top with a 141-137 victory at the Staples Center as LA’s lackluster start continued. By contrast, Golden State remains on absolute fire after a 118-103 victory over Portland took the Warriors to 17-2.

Today’s Slate

Ohio State vs Michigan headlines college football slate
It’s Saturday, which means we’ve got a huge college football on what will sadly be the last day of the regular season. Still, we have some great matchups to look forward to with the standard being a grudge match between Ohio State and Michigan. Don’t forget to also check out our picks and predictions for the rest of the big games in college football.

More success for Pickswise on the ice and hardwood?
After yesterday’s incredible success in the NHL, our hockey experts are gunning for even more winners across today’s 9-game slate. Make sure you read our picks for each of those matchups. But yesterday wasn’t just about the NHL, as our NBA experts also went 9-3 on sides, and even cashed a +612 parlay! Find out who we’re rolling with in today’s NBA games.

Best Bet of the Day

Ohio State -8 over Michigan Wolverines
12pm ET, FOX

The Buckeyes have the top-ranked total offense and the highest-scoring offense in the country, led by Heisman favorite CJ Stroud. The Buckeyes offense is absolutely loaded. They have the best receiving group in the country. Chris Olave, Jaxon Smith-Njigba, and Garrett Wilson should be able to have success against Michigan’s secondary. Michigan will have to play a perfect game to keep this one close. Ohio State is just on a different level and that should be apparent on Saturday. Read our full preview for Ohio State Buckeyes vs Michigan Wolverines.
