Early ATS Blowout - Rickenbach CBB Game #726 Tuesday 10* Top Play Toledo Rockets (-) vs Bowling Green Falcons @ 7 ET - Oftentimes in rivalry games I like to side with the dogs but this one sets up much differently than most and, as a result, I expect the favorite to win this one in an absolute blowout. The I-75 rivalry in Northeast Ohio between Toledo and Bowling Green resumes tonight and both the Rockets and Falcons are off of back to back losses. However, that is where the similarities between these teams end! The Falcons were at home for both of their games and yet they got completely obliterated by a combined 45 points in those games. The Bowling Green coach is trying to blame it on poor defense because they emphasized offense too much but the fact is their offense only averaged 52.5 points per game so I think he's a little out of touch with his own team here. The problem for BG is they are 1-6 on the road this season and now take on a Toledo team that is 7-1 at home on the season and whose back to back losses entering this match-up both came on the road. Unlike the Falcons, the Rockets did score well in their two defeats (81 points per game!) but they were done in by some hot shooting from their opponents. Look for Toledo (averaging 82.6 points per game on the season) to bounce back in a big way here at home. It is much easier to play at home coming off B2B road losses than to be on the road after B2B home losses. The place will be rocking in Toledo tonight and the Rockets haven't lost here against Bowling Green in 5 years! The Falcons are 9-19 ATS the past 3 seasons combined when, past the midway point of the season, they are facing a team with a winning record. The Rockets are 21-5 SU and 12-9 ATS against teams with a losing record the past 3 seasons combined and everyone is talking about how important this home game is in this rivalry series. 10* Top Play TOLEDO
Earliest Cash - Rickenbach CBB Game #729 Tuesday - 8* Arkansas Razorbacks (+) @ Texas A & M Aggies @ 7 ET - The Aggies most recent home game was a ridiculous result. They blew out LSU by 30 points as everything they threw up seemed to go in while the Tigers couldn't seem to hit the broad side of a barn in that game. That did bring Texas A & M to 7-2 at home this season. However, if you look closely at the Aggies, they have lost almost every single game where more of a challenge is presented and tonight they are hosting a 13-4 Arkansas team. Note that A & M's wins this season have, all but one, come when they were a big favorite or facing an opponent that was so overmatched it wasn't even a lined game. The Aggies have 9 wins this season. 4 of them were non-lined games, 4 were when they were favored by 12 points or more. Only "impressive" win was a 3-point win over Virginia Tech as a 2 point favorite. With the Hokies game included that makes the Aggies 1-7 straight-up in games where they are either a dog or a favorite of less than 12 points! Now you can see why I like the Razorbacks here. Every time but one this season, when the Aggies take a step up in level of competition, they lose. They are off of a loss at Mississippi State Saturday and now host an Arkansas team that is off of a big win over Missouri Saturday and that has gone 3-1 SU and ATS in their last 4 games where the line was single digits. The Aggies simply lost too much from last season's team but with this line already moving up from a -3 on A & M to now a -4.5 as of gameday morning, it is evident that the betting markets still like this Texas A & M team. I don't and I look for them to drop to 2-8 ATS this season against teams with a winning record. 8* ARKANSAS
Total Annihilation - Rickenbach NHL 10* Top Play OVER 5 goals (+100) in Minnesota Wild vs New Jersey Devils @ 8:05 ET Tuesday - As you've probably heard by now, Minnesota has been one of the hottest teams in the league for quite some time now. Of course that is why they are a prohibitive favorite in this match-up as more than a 2 to 1 choice. However, where value can often be found in situations like this is the overlooked O/U lines. In this case, there is significant value with the over. The Wild are 10-2-3 to the over in their last 15 games. That's right, they've had only 2 unders in their last 15 games. Minnesota has won 19 of their last 24 games and, incredibly, during this nearly 2 month stretch of success, the Wild have averaged scoring nearly 4 goals per game. Now, of course, I am well aware of the fact that New Jersey is generally an 'under team' involved in a lot of low-scoring games. However, keep in mind, a 2-2 game guarantees of no less than a 3-2 final. Now, of course we do not want a push here but to have strong odds of being guaranteed not to lose is certainly worth something. That said, note that Minnesota has scored at least 2 goals in 26 straight games. The Devils have scored at least 2 goals in 32 of their last 41 games. Combining those numbers of 26-0 and 32-9 one could easily argue that this play has a 58-9 (87%) chance of each team scoring at least two goals and, once again if each teams gets at least 2 goals, we can't lose this play! 7 times this season New Jersey has entered a game having played each of their three prior games on the road. Out of those 7 occurrences, only 1 of the 7 has resulted in an under. As for the Wild, they are 8-3 to the over when off of a divisional game and they enter this one off of a big road win at Chicago. 10* OVER the total Minnesota
Earliest Cash - Rickenbach NHL 8* Dallas Stars Money Line (+) @ New York Rangers @ 7:05 ET Tuesday - The Rangers are having goaltending issues and that means we get tremendous line value here with the Stars. New York's better goalie this season has been Antti Raanta but he is now out with a lower body injury. The Rangers still have their #1 guy, Henrik Lundqvist, but he has been struggling badly. Lundqvist is 3-4 in his last 7 starts and he has allowed 4 goals or more in 5 of those 7 games! Overall, his save percentage in his last 7 games is an unsightly .859 as Lundqvist just hasn't been able to establish any consistency between the pipes. The Stars come into this game off of a loss at Buffalo yesterday afternoon as a pair of power play goals were the difference - the Sabres also scored an empty netter. Dallas has lost three straight games to the Rangers including a home shutout last month. The Stars will be out for revenge and they have won 46 of 72 road games with a posted total of 6 goals or more. The Rangers have lost 89 of 159 home games with a posted total of 6 goals or more. As you can see, oddsmakers posted a 6 on this game, a lot of offense expected in this one and the line value is with the road dog. Even though the Rangers have the rest edge here they have actually lost 5 of the last 6 times when they have entered a game with rest of 2 days or more. 8* DALLAS
Earliest Cash - Rickenbach NBA 10* Top Play Toronto Raptors (-) @ Brooklyn Nets @ 7:35 Tuesday - Normally the only concern in a game like this is that Toronto would not be motivated and may overlook Brooklyn. However, that is unlikely to happen for two reasons. For one thing, tomorrow's Raptors opponent is the 76'ers so certainly there is no concern about Toronto looking ahead to a match-up with another team near the bottom of their division. Secondly, the Raptors lost their most recent road game and, in fact, have lost 4 of their last 5 road games. This ensures the proper focus from Toronto here and this is a Raptors team that is a perfect 8-0 in divisional games this season and has produced a 7-1 ATS mark in those games. Toronto is an overall 19-7 in their last 26 games and their average margin of victory in those 19 wins is 16 points! The Raptors are well known for their blowout wins and I just don't see the Nets being able to hang around in this one. Recently Brooklyn has had some winnable home games against teams like the Sixers and Pelicans and yet they've still ended up getting crushed in those games. They are struggling from three point land, their defense has been pathetic, and they have also been losing the battle of the boards. This will continue to be an issue tonight as they are clearly out-classed in this match-up and the Raptors have added focus on the road due to recent losses away from home. Toronto is 11-3 ATS when off of a win by a double digit margin. The Raptors also are 4-2 ATS when on the road and favored in a range of 9.5 to 12 points. The Nets are 0-7 in divisional games this season and have covered only 2 of those games. After being obliterated by Houston in their most recent game, note that Brooklyn is 3-11 ATS when off of a non-conference game. 10* TORONTO
