  • Ethiopia Win or Draw
  • Brandt Snedeker
  • Academica Win
  • Loyola Greyhounds 
The Loyola Greyhounds will go on the road to face the Manhattan Jesters. Loyola enters 14-6 but a disappointing 3-4 on the road. They are 7-3 in their last 10, 1-2 on the road during the span (win against Fairfield (11-10) losses against Memphis (15-3) and Rider (11-9). They score 60.6 points on the road while allowing 65.3. Meanwhile, Manhattan enters only 5-13 but with a 3-2 home record. They are 2-8 in their last 10, and were 1-2 at home during that span. They average 62.2 points per game at home while only a allowing 56.6 per game. Currently, the line is favoring Loyola by 2 points.

My Pick: Loyola Greyhounds (Suggested Pick)
Why: Although Loyola has been mediocre on the road, Manhattan has been terrible lately. I think Loyola wins this game easily by about 5 points.
  • Buffalo Sabres
  • New Jersey Devils
  • Atlanta Hawks
  • Detroit Red Wings
  • Tampa Bay Lightning
  • Houston Rockets
  • New Jersey Nets
  • Pittsburgh Penguins
  • San Antonio Spurs
  • Tony Parker
Here we have a prop asking which player will score more points in the first half, Tony Parker or OJ Mayo. So far this season, Parker has been averaging 19.8 points per game. In his last 5 games, he has been red hot, scoring an average of 21.8 points per game. Meanwhile, OJ Mayo has averaged 18.2 points per game this season, but has not been playing well in his last 5 games. In those 5 games, he has only been able to score 16.4 points per game.

My Pick: Tony Parker (Suggested Pick)
Why: Mayo has not been playing exceptionally well lately, and the Spurs team plays great defense. Sometimes, the Mavericks defense will fall apart, and I would not be surprised if that happened tonight against such a good player in Tony Parker. In his last two meetings against the Mavs, Parker has scored 21 and 18 points. Meanwhile, Mayo has scored 7 and 8 points in his two meetings against the Spurs. All signs pointing to Parker here.
  • UW Milwaukee 3-Pointers Made
  • 26 Points or Fewer
  • Anaheim Ducks
  • Los Angeles Lakers (Suggested Pick)
