Wise n' Shine: What you need to know to bet better on Sunday, November 14
Today’s sports action is headed by NFL Week 10, but there are also NBA, NHL, and college basketball games to enjoy. Let’s get straight to finding the best bets on another great day of sports!
About Last Night
Bulldogs still look ferocious
No. 1 Georgia rolled to a 10-0 record with a 41-17 victory over Tennessee, and No. 2 Alabama crushed New Mexico State 59-3. but No. 8 Oklahoma was taken down 27-14 by No. 13 Baylor. Georgia is -120 odds with DraftKings Sportsbook to win the NCAAF FBS National Championship. Check out what Ricky Dimon made of all Saturday’s action in our College Football Week 11 reaction.
Pelicans, Pistons cause NBA upsets
Saturday’s NBA slate brought a couple of fair-sized upsets, with the Detroit Pistons beating the Toronto Raptors as +8.5 underdog, while the New Orleans Pelicans got only their second win of the season — and their first in 7 attempts at home — by beating the Memphis Grizzlies.
NFL Week 10 tops the bill
NFL Week 10 brings us another set of fascinating showdowns. The 1pm slate is arguably topped by Saints vs Titans, although Browns vs Patriots is a key game for both teams in the wild AFC playoff race and the Steelers will be facing the Lions without Ben Roethlisberger, a late scratch due to Covid protocols. Seahawks vs Packers tops the afternoon card with Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers hopefully both back in action while Sunday Night Football is Chiefs vs Raiders — not bad at all! Check out our great NFL Week 10 betting guide, which acts as a hub to access all our parlays, picks, previews, and prop bets for today’s games.
Sweet 7-game NBA slate
There are some great games on today’s NBA schedule, from Spurs vs Lakers at 3:30 pm ET through to a meeting of 8-4 teams at 9:30 pm ET as the Bulls take on the Clippers. You can check out our picks for all today’s NBA action here.
Oilers vs Blues heads the NHL bill
We have a 6-game slate in the NHL including a couple of great games with the 7-4-2 Devils meeting the 8-3-3 Rangers and the 10-3-0 Oilers taking on the 8-3-2 Blues, both at 7:00 pm ET. Read our predictions for today’s NHL games here.
Opening week of college basketball continues
The Sunday college hoops schedule is much more manageable than some of the monster slates we’ve had this week but we’ve got you covered with picks for today’s top games. Read our predictions for today’s college basketball games here.
Best Bet of the Day
Los Angeles Chargers -3 vs Minnesota Vikings
4:05 pm ET, FOX
The Chargers’ losses have come to solid teams in Dallas, Baltimore, and New England. Their performance against the Ravens was a disaster, but setbacks against Dallas and New England came by a combined 6 points. LA most recently prevailed 27-24 at Philadelphia last weekend. The Bolts have one of the best skill-position lineups in the business. The Vikings haven’t won a game since October 17 and that was in overtime against lowly Carolina. The Vikes haven’t won in regulation since October 10, and that was by 2 points over winless Detroit. Minnesota is 4-11 against the spread in its last 15 overall and 1-4 ATS in its last 5 after allowing more than 30 points in its previous outing. Take the Chargers. Check out our full preview of Chargers vs Vikings.

Stat of the Day
