Just to clarify, picks that I say are suggested are picks that I would and most likely will take in order to win the longest streak of the month. Sometimes, there will be two suggested picks at a time slot, meaning that I think both are very solid picks. These picks will almost always be accompanied by writeups. For up to the minute updates regarding picks or scores, follow me on Twitter @FantasyInsider3 and join our SFTC group.
  • Tottenham Hotspur
  • Temple Owls @ Dayton Flyers
Here we have a matchup where Temple will travel to Dayton to face the Flyers. Dayton enters with a 13-9 record and a very solid 10-3 home record. In their last 10, they have not been playing very well, only going 4-6. However, only one of those losses was at home, and it came to Butler, a top 25 team. In that game, they were still able to put up 73 points, but they allowed 79 points and therefore Butler took the win. At home, they average 73.4 points per game while only allowing 61.1. Meanwhile, Temple enters the game at 15-7 with a mediocre 4-4 road record. In their last 10, they have gone 5-5, with 4 of those losses on the road. Granted, three of those 4 came to teams that have been ranked (Kansas, Butler, Xavier). However, they also just lost to St. Joe's on the road who have about the same record as Dayton. Temple averages 64.9 points per game at home while giving up 62.2 points per game.

My Pick: Dayton Flyers (Suggested Pick)
Why: On paper, this looks like a very good game, and I think it will be. However, Dayton seems to have more offensive firepower at home then Temple does on the road, and I think that gives them the win, as the two defenses are very similar.
  • 68 or More
  • Florida State Seminoles
  • Michigan Wolverines
  • Ghana
  • New Jersey Devils
  • Philadelphia Flyers
  • Miami Ohio Win or Single Digit Loss
  • Vanderbilt Commodores
  • Ottawa Senators
  • Miami FL WM
  • Lazio Win or Draw (Suggested Pick)- They would win this prop something like 11 out of 12 times that they have played at home. Napoli is a decent road team but not good enough to beat Lazio. 2-1 win or 1-1 draw for Lazio.
  • Villanova Double Digit Win
  • Cleveland State Wins or Single Digit Loss
  • Kansas Jayhawks (Suggested Pick)- Oklahoma hasn't been incredible at home this year as they have gone 7-2. The losses came to Stephen Austin and Kansas State, both inferior teams to Kansas. Meanwhile, Kansas has 1 loss on the road which came to TCU in their last game. They have actually lost 2 in a row to TCU and Oklahoma State. I doubt they lose 3 in a row here and I think Bill Self gets his troops motivated.
  • Georgia Bulldogs
  • Kansas State Wildcats (Suggested Pick)- Kansas State AT HOME against Iowa State? I'll take that ANYDAY. ISU has been terrible on the road going 2-5. Meanwhile, Kansas State has been incredible at home with an 11-1 record. Although ISU beat Kansas State, it was in Iowa and I doubt they can do it in Kansas.
  • Cincinnati Bearcats 
  • JaQuon Parker or Tie
  • Washington Capitals
  • New York Islanders
  • Arizona State Sun Devils
  • Massachusetts Minutemen- 8-2 at home and 15-6 overall vs 5-4 on the road and 13-8 overall. I think I will take the 8-2 at home and 15-6 team, which happens to be Massachusetts. St. Joe's hasn't impressed me very much this year and I think Massachusetts wins easily.
  • Cincinnati First To 10 Points
  • Minnesota Wild
  • Golden State Warriors
  • UNLV Rebels
  • Louisville Cardinals
  • Nebraska Cornhuskers - Penn State hasn't won on the road so far this year and have been terrible in general. Meanwhile, Nebraska has been okay in general, but they have played pretty well on the road and I expect them to win easily here.
  • No Louisville DD Lead - I actually have a feeling that Notre Dame will be leading most of this half. Louisville is a second half team, and they always lose the first half when on the road. We saw this against UCONN, Georgetown and even Seton Hall kept it close. I think "No" is an easy green.
  • Utah Jazz
  • Creighton DD Win
  • Notre Dame First 3 Pointer Made
  • San Diego Wins or Single Digit Loss
