Hawks vs Pacers
OVER 239½ -110 Won
Play Type: Premium

Atlanta @ Indiana 8:05 PM ET

Game# 541-542

Play On: Over 239.5 (5*)

I very seldom play an NBA game over the total when the number is this high. Nonetheless, I am going to make an exception in this one and break my normal tendency. Atlanta is coming off an impressive 135-103 home win last night against a top-notch Phoenix team. The Hawks have played 6-0 to the over this season when playing with no rest and when the number is 220.0 or greater. Atlanta is also 6-1 to the over in its last 7 when there’s been a total of 232.0 or great with 241.0 points scored per contest.

Indiana went under in their previous game and that’s significant. The Pacers have played 11-0 to the over in their last 11 this season when there’s a total of 220.0 or greater and their previous game went under. Those 11 contests averaged a combined 250.8 points scored per game. Bet on this game to go over the total for a 5* wager.

Wizards vs Raptors
-2½ -101 at pinnacle
Play Type: Premium

Washington @ Toronto 7:35 PM ET

Game# 537-538

Play On: Toronto -2.5 (5*)

This is a similar NBA betting scenario to today’s Chicago and Charlotte game. Washington enters this game having won 12 of its last 16 games, Toronto has lost 4 of their last 5, and it’s the Raptors as a favorite in this contest. Washing is coming off an emotional and energy draining 135-134 loss at Milwaukee last night. NBA road underdogs playing Toronto with no rest have gone 0-4 ATS in their last 4 this season and lost by a decisive average of 26.2 points per game. Lastly, Toronto has gone 5-0 ATS in their last 5 as a favorite and won by an average of 12.8 points per contest. Bet on Toronto minus the points as a 5* wager.

Bulls vs Hornets
-4 -105 at pinnacle
Play Type: Premium

Chicago @ Charlotte (Cole) 7:05 PM ET

Game# 533-534

Play On: Chicago -4.0 (5*)

Here we have a Chicago team which has gone 0-4 SU&ATS in their last 4 and has an uninspiring 26-39 season record, but still is a road favorite versus an opponent who is 32-33 including 17-4 at home. The home underdog should be the betting value, right? Well, it’s seldom that easy when it comes to sports betting. This one has trap inscribed all over it and the sportsbooks are begging you to take the home underdog. I been doing this too long and successfully to be lured in. Furthermore, Charlotte is coming off a win in their previous game, However, the Hornets are 0-8 ATS in their last 8 games as an underdog of 5.5 or less following a straight up win and lost by an average of 12.0-points per game. Chicago is 2-0 SU&ATS versus Charlotte this season with a decisive average victory margin of 15.0 pooints per game. Bet on Chicago minus the points for a 5* wager.

Astros vs Yankees
UNDER 7½ -109 Lost
Play Type: Premium

Astros (McCullers) @ Yankees (Cole) 1:05 PM ET

Game# 909-910

Play On: Under 7.5 (5*)

The Astros Lance McCullers has been dominant in his 2 road starts this season versus Tampa Bay and Oakland. During those outings he posted a terrific 0.75 ERA in 12.0 innings pitched. McCullers has made 2 career starts at Yankee Stadium and allowed just 1 earned run on 6 hits thru 12.0 inning pitched. The is will be the 12th day game of the season for Houston. The Astros bullpen has been superb in the previous 11 while registering a 2.86 ERA and 1.18 WHIP.

The Yankees are currently a money line favorite of -200 for today’s game. New York has played 12-4 to the under this season as a money line favorite of -150 or greater. The Yankees ace Gerrit Cole gets the call for today and he’s been sensational in 6 starts this season with a 1.42 ERA, 0.72 WHIP, and struck out 62 while walking only 3 in 37 2/3 innings pitched. The Yankees bullpen has been terrific since the season began. They have been even more dominant over their previous 7 games while recording a 1.66 ERA, 0.74 WHIP, and struck out 30 batters in just 21 2/3 innings pitched. Bet on this game to go under the total for a 5* wager.


Ross Benjamin has made his reputation in the sports handicapping industry by being one of the sharpest prognosticators over the last 17 years. Included 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 and sharpest sports handicappers I know is Ross Benjamin”.

Ross’ sports betting advice is simple yet prophetic.  “if you want to be a successful sports handicapper then start by thinking like a bookmaker”.

Ross has been publicly in the sports betting industry full time since early 2003 and has never looked back. Any Google search on Ross Benjamin Sports reaffirms his commitment to winning, professionalism, honesty, and integrity.

Ross is currently a featured sports betting writer and video analyst for OSGA. He has been in that role since 2017. Additionally, Ross is a former writer/video analyst for Sportsbook Review from 2011 to 2017

However, there’s nothing Ross enjoys more than picking winners in the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, NCAA Football, and NCAA Basketball. He’s met that challenge and passed the test for the last 18 years running.

Ross is the past winner of the “Playbook Invitational Football Wise Guy Contest” while also finishing in the Top 5 on 3 other separate occasions.
