We require to do something regarding professional athletes believing that no one relies on them. I comprehend it’s an inspirational point, yet Travis Kelce shouting after last evening’s Super Bowl win that no one relied on the Chiefs was absurd. They was just one of the faves to win the Super Bowl all period. It begins the heels of the Georgia Bulldogs screaming the very same point after defeating TCU by a billion factors in the College Football Playoff.
Last evening, the factor spread was 1.5. That’s the oddsmakers’ means of claiming, “this is a coin flip.” And it was. It was a close video game in between 2 equally matched groups that could not retreat from each other, as well as it boiled down to which group made plays in the long run.
It was an excellent video game, as well as not even if we struck a great deal of the wagers we place for it in Friday’s e-newsletter (which, since I think about it, we understand Travis Kelce does not register for). If he did, he would certainly recognize there went to the very least a single person available that relied on the Chiefs, similar to I count on these tales.
Before we get to the picks, apologies for just consisting of one play tonight. From a gaming point of view, the slate has an odor. Not an excellent indication for the initial day after football period. We’ll manage the very best we can.

The Hot Ticket
West Virginia atNo 9 Baylor, 9 p.m.|TELEVISION: ESPN2
- Key Trend: Baylor is 4-1 ATS in its last 5 video games in your home while West Virginia is 2-5 ATS in its last 7 on the road.
- The Pick: Baylor -6.5 (-110 )
After West Virginia shed to Texas 94-60 on Saturday, Mountaineers instructor Bob Huggins stated something that some followers would certainly reject as grumbling yet, in my viewpoint, was a legitimate factor: “This has been a really hard run. This is a hard run for anybody. Playing as many games as we’ve played, travel the way we traveled, it’s rough. The other teams in this league have no idea. They complain about coming to Morgantown – how about what we do.”
Not just was Saturday’s video game West Virginia’s 3rd in 7 days, yet it needed to take a trip the 1,400 miles to Austin to play the video game. Two days later on, West Virginia remains in Waco to play an additional among the very best groups in the nation. While I do not anticipate an additional 34-point blowout loss, it’s difficult to picture the Mountaineers will certainly remain in much better form for this video game than they protested Texas.
On the period, KenPom has West Virginia’s violation rated as the 17th most reliable in the nation at 116.2. In seminar play, that number has actually gone down to 102.2 as well as places 7th in the league. Defensively, the drop-off has actually just been 7 factors rather than the 14 on violation, yet the tale isn’t great for either. Baylor’s protection is a genuine issue regarding their possibility in the NCAA Tournament this period, yet tonite, in your home versus a worn down West Virginia team, I do not anticipate it’ll be a substantial issue.
Here’s what SportsLine is claiming regarding the video game: The Projection Model has a healthy and balanced favor Baylor tonight too
Champions League picks
PSG vs. Bayern Munich, Tuesday, 3 p.m|TELEVISION: Paramount+
The Pick: Bayern Munich (+150)– Of the 8 quarterfinal matches in the Champions League, this is your headliner. You have the first-place group in France, loaded with the celebrity power of Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe as well as Neymar, breaking the German giant as well as six-time Champions League/European Cup victorBayern Munich I’m not sure just how much of PSG’s celebrity power will certainly be readily available for this suit.
Over the weekend break, we took Monaco versus PSG since PSG lacked Messi as well asMbappe We do not recognize if either will certainly begin or the length of time they’ll be readily available to use Tuesday, if whatsoever. Those injuries are why PSG has actually shed 2 directly, while Bayern hasn’t shed becauseSept 17. It won’t be simple to head to Les Parc de Princes as well as get the win, yet I anticipate that’s simply what Bayern will certainly do.
A/C Milan vs. Tottenham Hotspur, Tuesday, 3 p.m.|TELEVISION: Paramount+
The Pick: Over 2.5 (+110)– It’s virtually difficult to figure these 2 groups out now. One min Tottenham is defeating Manchester City 1-0, the following, it’s blowing a very early 1-0 lead versus Leicester as well as shedding 4-1. Then there’s A/C Milan, which has actually been dreadful because returning from the World Cup break, yet lastly handled to grab a gain the weekend break versus Torino.
There’s some worth on Milan to win, yet there isn’t sufficient worth wagering. Instead, the much better worth gets on the overall since the main factor these groups have actually battled recently is protecting. Don’t be shocked to see blown jobs as well as gamers entrusted to way too much area in package in this suit.
SportsLine Pick of the Day: I do not such as anything in the NBA tonight, yet the Projection Model has an A-graded play in between the Oklahoma City Thunder as well as New Orleans Pelicans.
