Drake @ Northern Iowa 4:00 PM ET

Play On: Drake +6.5 (5*)

Drake has started Missouri Valley Conference play with a respectable 3-2 record, covering on 4 of those occasions, and was an underdog in each of those contests. Conversely, Northern Iowa is 2-11 in its last 13 games, and that includes an abysmal 0-7 SU&ATS during their previous 7 outings. Northern Iowa’s last 5 defeats have all come against MVC opponents. Through those 5 games, they allowed those 5 teams to shoot 51.2% and that includes an off the charts 53.4% from beyond the 3-point line. Play on Drake plus the points for a 5* wager.

Pittsburgh @ Kansas City 8:20 PM ET

Play On: Kansas City -1.0 (5*)

Pittsburgh is coming off a 30-12 playoff win over Miami last Sunday, and covered as an 11.0-point favorite.

Any home team (Kansas City) in the NFL Playoffs that’s +9.0 to -9.0, versus a non-division opponent (Pittsburgh), and they’re coming off a non-division home ATS win as a favorite of 7.5 or more, resulted in those home playoff teams going a perfect 13-0 SU&ATS since 1982. The average victory margin in those contests was a sizable 14.4 points per game. Bet on Kansas City for a 5* wager.

Green Bay @ Dallas 4:40 PM ET

Play On: Dallas -4.0 (10*)

I wish I had a dollar for every time I read or heard that Dallas isn’t that good since early October. Since losing their season opener at home to the Giants, Dallas has gone 13-2, and that includes a perfect 7-0 at home. As a matter of fact, the Cowboys were an unscathed 10-0 in non-division games this season and covered on 8 of those occasions. Those results included a decisive 30-16 win as a 5.0-point underdog at Green Bay on 10/16.

You may be surprised to know, Green Bay has played in 3 playoff games on the road since 2013, and fell short in each of those contests. The unavailability of Packers wide receiver Jordie Nelson is a huge handicapping factor to account for. Although Randall Cobb had a monster game in last week’s playoff win over the Giants, he’s struggled when cast into a #1 wide receiver like what transpired a season ago.

Since the 1986 NFL Playoffs, any home favorite of 3.5 to 8.5, coming off a loss in their last regular season game, and they possess a win percentage of .625 or better, versus an opponent (Green Bay) coming off a win, resulted in those home favorites going 21-7 ATS (75%) since 1986. Bet on Dallas minus the points for a 10* Top Play Wager.

Washington @ Pittsburgh 7:05 PM ET

Play On: Washington +120 (+110)

Washington enters today’s game riding a 9-game winning streak, and has outscored their opponent by a decisive 40-11 during that time. As a matter of fact, they held 4 of those 9 opponents scoreless. Braden Holtby has been lights out for Washington in goal. Holtby has earned 3 shutouts during his past 5 starts.

Washington has a stellar win percentage of .674 this season, and Pittsburgh is at .619 on the year. Washington defeated Pittsburgh 5-2 last Wednesday during the previous meeting between these Metropolitan Division rivals.

Any money line road underdog (Washington) playing in the 2nd half of the season, possessing a win percentage of better than .500, versus an opponent (Pittsburgh) that’s playing with same season revenge stemming from a loss by 2 goals or more, and they own a win percentage of .600 to .700, resulted in those road underdogs going 37-16 (69.8%) during the past 5 seasons. The underdogs average money line in those 53 games was +132.8. Bet on the Washington Capitals for a 10* Top Play wager.

Montreal @ Detroit 3:05 PM ET

Play On: Montreal -134 (5*)

Before I get to the specifics pertaining to this betting angle, let me touch upon a few of additional handicapping notes. Detroit is a poor 8-13 at home this season, and that includes going 2-7 in its last 9 at Joe Louis Arena. The Red Wings are coming off a 6-3 win against Pittsburgh in their previous game. Detroit has gone 1-7 in their last 8 games following a win, and that includes losing 5 straight when cast into that role. Montreal has won 4 of their last 5 away games.

Montreal has gone over the total in each of their previous 6 games. The Canadiens enter today with a +0.6 goal per game differential for the season. Conversely, Detroit has a -0.4 goal per game differential this season.

Any road team which is -100 to -150 on the money line during the 2nd half of the season, and has a +0.4 or great goal per game differential, versus an opponent with a -0.4 to +0.4 goal per game differential, resulted in those road teams going an extremely profitable 26-3 (89.7%) since 1997. Bet on the Montreal Canadiens for a 5* money line wager.

SERVICE BIO

Ross Benjamin has made his reputation in the sports handicapping industry by being one of the sharpest prognosticators over the last 13 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 now 59 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.
