Play Type: Top Premium

Fresno State @ New Mexico 7:00 PM ET

Game# 719-720

Play On: Fresno State -2.0 (10*)

New Mexico has gone an uninspiring 7-6 at home this season. The Lobos are coming off a 92-60 win at Mountain West cellar dweller San Jose State. However, they’ve gone 0-3 in their last 3 games following a win. As a matter of fact, they’ve lost 7 of their last 10 overall and 2 of those wins came against opponents (San Jose State/Wyoming) who’ve combined to go an abysmal 9-38 this season.

Fresno State is 16-4 in their last 20 and that includes 5-1 during true road games. They’re also 4-1 in their previous 5 games with their lone defeat coming by 1 against a very good 19-6 Utah State team. Thru that 5-game stretch, Fresno State has shot a stellar 47.8% and made an outstanding 40.3% of its 3-point attempts. Bet on Fresno State for a 10* Top Play wager.

Temple @ South Florida 6:00

Game# 697-698

Play On: South Florida -1.0 (5*)

After beginning the season by winning 14 of its first 17 games, Temple has gone just 4-4 during their previous 8 contests. The Owls have shot a terrible 35.7% throughout their previous 3 road games.

South Florida is a stellar 13-2 at home this season. As a matter of fact, the Bulls are 10-1 in its last 11 at home and their only loss came against #9 Houston. South Florida will be out to revenge a narrow 2-point loss at Temple earlier this season. The Bulls were a miserable 10-25 from the free throw line during that defeat and ultimately that cost them the game. That’s highly unlikely to occur once again. Bet on South Florida for a 5* wager.

IPFW @ Nebraska-Omaha 5:30 PM ET

Game# 787-788

Play On: Nebraska-Omaha -3.5 (5*)

IPFW is a terrible defensive team. They’ve allowed 81 points or more in 6 of its last 8 and 8 of their previous 11 games. That’s not good news considering their opponent this evening has shot 50% or better in 5 of its last 7 contests. IPFW is coming off a 94-81 win at Denver in their previous game. However, they’re 2-13 ATS during over the last 3 seasons after allowing 80 points or more in their previous game.

Omaha is coming off an 85-84 upset win over South Dakota State on Thursday night. They overcame a 16-point 2nd half deficit in that contest against the Summit Conference’s best team. Omaha has ow gone a red-hot 8-1 SU&ATS in their last 9 games. Bet on Nebraska-Omaha minus the points for a 5* wager.

Play Type: Premium

UNLV @ San Jose State 5:00 PM ET

Game# 691-692

Play On: Over 147.0 (5*)

San Jose State has allowed 92 and 105 points in their last 2 games. They’ve now gone over the total in 8 of their last 10 games. UNLV has gone over the total in 7 of their previous 10 games. The Rebels have allowed 40 points or more in the first half of each of their previous 6 games.

Any team (San Jose State) that has allowed 85 points or more in each of their previous 2 games, and they’re facing an opponent (UNLV) which has allowed 40 points or greater in the first half of its last 2 games, resulted in those contests going 36-8 (81.8%) over the total during the past 5 seasons. The average total in those 44 games was 145.3 and there were a combined 154.8 points scored per contest. Bet on this game to go over the total for a 5* wager.

Clemson @ Louisville 12:00 PM ET

Game# 609-610

Play On: Clemson +6.5 (5*)

Louisville is coming off a deflating 71-69 home loss to Duke in a game they blow a seemingly insurmountable 23-point lead with 10 minutes left to play. The Cardinals have now lost 3 of their last 4 albeit against all nationally ranked opponents. Nevertheless, I can’t imagine there won’t be a lingering effect as a result of their complete meltdown against Duke.

Clemson is 4-2 straight up and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games. Their only 2 losses during that stretch came by a combined 3 points at NC State and at Miami. The 15-9 Tigers are desperate for some signature wins if they hope to make the NCAA Tournament. They’ll have ample opportunity to do so against Top 25 teams Louisville and Florida State in their next 2 games. As I previously alluded to, Clemson may be catching Louisville at a most opportune time. Bet on Clemson plus the points for a 5* wager.

SERVICE BIO

Ross Benjamin has made his reputation in the sports handicapping industry by being one of the sharpest prognosticators over the last 15 years. In professional sports handicapper Ron Raymond’s 2008 published book “50 Greatest Sports Betting Secrets” he probably says it best. “One of the most underrated handicappers in our industry and probably one of the sharpest ones I know is Ross Benjamin.” 

One of Ross’ often used phrases when speaking publicly, “if you want to be a successful sports handicapper then start by thinking like a bookmaker”. Ross is 61 years old and has been directly involved in many capacities of the sports gaming industry for the last 31 years. However there is nothing he enjoys more than the challenge of picking winners in the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, NCAA Football, and NCAA Basketball.
