L.A. Lakers (-1') at BOSTON

By Mitchell Newman, Featured Handicapper

Sunday AFC Championship 75 Dime Winner on Kansas City as the home favorite over Tennessee.

That makes it 21 of the last 33 days on the plus side.

We have 2 weeks before we conclude the NFL season, in the meantime I am back after it tonight in the Big Twelve in college basketball.

Big Twelve Game of the Month


All about maintaining the momentum.

Time to deliver.

Monday comp play on the Lakers over the Celtics, as Boston is going the wrong way these days and I don't think they are likely to end their rut against this Los Angeles team that comes into TD Bank Garden at 34-8 on the year.

LA has lost only one time in their last 11 games, and they are a positive 7-3-1 against the spread in those 11 games played.

Boston's losing streak is now at 3 in a row after their Saturday home loss to the Phoenix Suns and the C's have dropped 6 of their last 8 games overall heading into this Monday showdown with Los Angeles.

The teams split last year's pair of meetings, with the road team winning both games. Los Angeles has claimed the win and the cover in 2 of the last 3 played between the teams, and tonight they expect Anthony Davis to be back after missing the last 5 games with a tail bone injury. I do like the Lakers to come through with the road win and cover against a Boston team that appears lost right now. 

It's also a Boston team that is missing Jaylen Brown with his lingering thumb injury and also is listing Kemba Walker as questionable with a knee injury. Boston is a little nicked up right now and playing these Lakers on Monday night is of no help as Brad Stevens' team tries to get themselves healthy.

Lakers over the Celtics on Monday night.


Indiana at UTAH (-7)

By Stephen DeAngelo, Featured Handicapper

Never. In. Doubt.


Those three words tell the entire story of yesterday’s 50 Dime winner on the 49ers, who landed punches early and often in the NFC Championship Game on the way to a blowout win (and easy spread-cover) over the Packers. There’s just nothing better than easy winners, and they don’t get much easier than that one!


With that 50 Dimer on San Francisco, I’ve now delivered four straight winning days, and those four winners that have netted 150 Dimes of profit—meaning $100 bettors are up $1,500 just since Thursday! Yep, the D-Train is absolutely rolling, and there’s no slowing down as we had back to the hardwood today for Winning Day #5 in a Row, Basketball Winner #4 in a Row (and #12 of 14) and 40 Dime College Hoops Winner #4 of 5, and it comes in Big 12 action as Texas visits West Virginia.


The results speak for themselves, my friends:


♦ 11-2 basketball run (college & NBA) for 278 Dimes. That includes three straight winners on BYU over San Diego (Thursday), the 76ers over the Bulls (Friday) and Maryland over Purdue (Saturday)


♦ 12-5 start to the college hoops season for 215 Dimes, including 7-2 with my last nine selections


♦ 18-7 run with all 30 Dime plays, including eight of the last nine and the last three in a row—and today’s Texas-West Virginia play is stronger


♦ 3-1 with 40 Dime college basketball plays, including Maryland on Saturday. This Texas-West Virginia play is just as strong


Bottom line: If you like making easy money, you need to be on the D-Train right now—and I’m not talking about purchasing a one-day ticket. Do yourself (and your bankroll) a favor and invest in a season-long pass right now!

I’ve nailed three of my last four complimentary plays, the latest being Sunday’s winner on Southern Illinois over Drake. For Monday’s freebie, we’ll turn our focus to the NBA and roll with the Jazz against the visiting Pacers.


Utah bounced back from Thursday’s tough 138-132 overtime loss at New Orleans with a 123-101 thrashing of the Kings on Saturday, easily cashing as a 9-point home chalk. Going all the way back to Dec. 11, the Jazz are 16-2 SU and 13-4-1 ATS, a run that includes seven straight wins at home (6-1 ATS).


Granted, the Jazz didn’t show up when they faced the Pacers in Indiana way back in late November, losing 121-102 (their third straight loss to the Pacers since the start of last season). But that was back when Utah was really struggling (the loss being part of a 2-6 slump). This time around, the Jazz are clearly trending in the right direction.


Another thing working Utah’s favor tonight: the schedule. Indiana, which beat the Nuggets in Denver last night for its fourth straight victory, is not only in a back-to-back spot, but this is the Pacers’ third game in four nights (and their fifth game in the last eight days—all of them played in a different city, as they went from Indiana to Minnesota back to Indiana to Denver and now to Utah).


Finally, Utah has been absolutely lighting up the scoreboard, tallying at least 118 points in six of its last seven games. That includes 128 and 132 against the Pelicans; 128 against the Knicks; 127 against the Wizards; and 123 against the Kings.
