Since graduating from Davidson (The College That Stephen Curry Built), I have been writing about sports--just about any and all you can think of!--and coaching tennis in Atlanta, Ga. Beyond the four major sports, I am an avid tennis fan and cover the ATP Tour on a daily basis. If I'm not busy writing, you can generally find me on a tennis court or traveling the world wherever a sporting event takes me.

Week 12 in the NFL continues on Sunday following a trio of games on Thanksgiving. But don’t forget about action in the NBA, NHL, college basketball, English Premier League, and Major League Soccer. Let’s get straight to making your next bet better on another great day of sports!

About Last Night

Alabama, Michigan win on incredible day of college football
College football rivalry week in 2021 won’t soon be forgotten. Alabama and Oklahoma State won respective thrillers over Auburn and Oklahoma, Michigan beat Ohio State for the first time in Jim Harbaugh’s tenure, and Ed Orgeron’s last home game at LSU saw the Tigers take down LSU in dramatic fashion. Check out what Connor Grootenhuis made of all Saturday’s action in our College football Week 13 reaction.

Make it 16 in a row for the Suns
Not one, not two, not three, not four, not five, not six, not seven…not 14, not 15…. No, the Suns have now won 16 straight games following their 113-107 victory at Brooklyn. Phoenix is 17-3, trailing Golden State by just a half-game for the overall best record in the NBA.

Canadiens, Kraken come up big as underdogs
Montreal won as a +196 underdog and Seattle won as a +175 ‘dog on Saturday. The Habs had no trouble beating host Pittsburgh 6-3, while the Kraken picked up their 4th victory in franchise history by going on the road and handling Florida 4-1.

Today’s Slate

NFL Week 12 leads the way
Two of the three Thanksgiving Day games provided plenty of entertainment. What will Sunday do for an encore? Steelers vs Bengals, Titans vs Patriots, and Rams vs Packers are among the marquee matchups. Check out our great NFL Week 12 betting guide, which acts as a hub to access all our parlays, picks, previews, and prop bets for today’s games.

Warriors’ winning streak on the line
The Warriors have the second-longest winning streak in the NBA at 6 (tied with the Bucks) and they still own the best record at 17-2. Stephen Curry and company will try to remain ahead of Phoenix when they visit the Clippers on Sunday afternoon. Meanwhile, the Lakers will hope to get back to .500 when they host the Pistons. You can check out our picks for all of today’s NBA action.

Six NHL games despite Subway Series postponement
Sunday’s on-ice festivities were supposed to include a showdown between the two New York rivals, but the Islanders have so many guys sidelined by health and safety protocols that the game was postponed. Six contests still remain, highlighted by Capitals (13-3-5) vs Hurricanes (15-3-1). Read our predictions for today’s NHL games.

EPL plus MLS playoffs on the soccer pitch
A reeling Manchester United club hosts Chelsea as part of a 6-game English Premier League schedule. In the Major League Soccer playoffs, Sporting Kansas City plays host to Real Salt Lake and Philadelphia is entertaining Nashville. You can check out our soccer picks for today’s EPL and MLS games.

Best Bet of the Day

Tennessee Titans vs New England Patriots Under 44.5
1:00 pm ET, CBS

A lot of factors point toward a defensive struggle in Titans vs Patriots. For starters, there is a ton of familiarity between the two teams. Tennessee head coach Mike Vrabel spent 8 years under New England head coach Bill Belichick as a player, and then Vrabel came up as an NFL coach under Bill O’Brien – another former Belichick disciple. Each head coach knows what the other wants to do. The last time these teams played was in the 2019 playoffs, in Tom Brady’s last game as a Patriot. Vrabel had a great game-plan for Brady and limited the Pats to just 13 points. The final score was 20-13. Meanwhile, the Titans won’t have Julio Jones and the Pats’ superb defense shut out Matt Ryan and the Falcons last week. Check out our full preview of Titans vs Patriots.

Stat of the Day
