College Football Season Subscription of Stephen Nover
College presents opportunities that the NFL doesn't where sometimes you can actually find line value. I've beaten the colleges the past three years averaging 57.5 percent while hitting better than 67 percent in the bowls by combining many handicapping factors such as matchup analysis, statistics, history, weather and situational elements. Information is the key because there are just so many teams and conferences on the betting board now. I don't rule out any game or conference. It's a task to find the time to adequately handicap each game. So I'm fortunate that I have many sources to rely on. Many stem from having been a sportswriter/sports editor for daily newspapers in the Midwest, South and West for more than 20 years and having been the sports gaming writer for the Las Vegas Review-Journal for 13 years while also having covered the UNLV football team as the team beat writer for several years. I have the knowledge, experience and resources necessary to win. I've won the past three years and I expect to turn a tidy profit again this season.

Predators vs Flyers
OVER 5½ -103 Lost

Play Type: Premium

These two teams met just nine days ago and the Predators won, 6-5. 

 There should be at least six goals scored in this quick turnaround even if Wayne Simmons doesn't play.  Nashville has scored four or more goals in three of its last four games. The Flyers are averaging six goals per game during their last three games. Both teams have offensive-minded defensemen. The Flyers have a young team with fresh legs and an improved speedy fourth line.

Play Type: Free
The Clippers have owned this series winning 11 of the past 12 times with an average winning margin of 13.4 points.  The Lakers are trying to cut the gap stockpiling young talent. But the Clippers remain at least one level higher than the Lakers even without the departed Chris Paul. The Clippers still have star power with Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan.  The Clippers' window of challenging the Warriors has closed with Paul's departure, but they still are a solid playoff contender with a chip on their shoulder to prove they can win without Paul. The Clippers take their games against the Lakers very serious. This certainly won't be an exception.  The storyline here is the NBA debut of Lonzo Ball, who missed most of the preseason because of a sprained ankle. He'll likely be rusty and hounded by defensive ace Patrick Beverley. The Lakers may improve as the season goes on. But right now they are vulnerable to a veteran, motivated team such as the Clippers. Note, too, that the Lakers do not have a home court advantage as both teams use Staples Center as their home court. (Editor's note: Stephen Nover is 16-5 on his last 21 NBA plays going back to last season, including 4-1 this season. Long-term, Stephen has cashed 63 percent of his last 116 NBA premium/free plays going 72-43-1.)

Clippers vs Lakers
UNDER 220 -110 Won
$100
Play Type: Top Premium

This is a big total that would make sense - if it were posted on a Clippers-Lakers game last season. Things are much different this year. The Clippers don't have Chris Paul. The Lakers have Lonzo Ball. Both are among the reasons I like this game to go Under the total. The Clippers' offense is less explosive minus Paul. That's a no-brainer. But the Clippers' backcourt becomes much more hard-nosed with the change from Paul to rugged Patrick Beverley, one of the best defensive guards in the NBA.  Ball is the Lakers' new main man. He's a great passer, but not a high percentage shooter. Ball was limited to only 57 minutes during preseason because of a sprained ankle. He'll play tonight, but will have to deal with Beverley and the pressures of his first NBA game and the super high expectations the home fans have for him.  The Lakers gave up the third-most points in the NBA last season. Lakers coach Luke Walton made it a priority during preseason to stress defense. The Lakers allowed an average of 103.5 points per game in their six exhibition games.  "...I'm thrilled with the strides they're making," Walton was quoted as saying about the defensive progress his team showed during preseason. The Lakers acheived this without Andrew Bogut, who missed the preseason with a groin injury. Bogut, though, practiced this week and should play. He provides a shot-blocking presence for the Lakers that the Clippers have with DeAndre Jordan, another top defensive player.

Play Type: Premium
It's not often a spot sets up better for the road team, but it does in this instance.  San Jose is rested. This marks the Sharks' first road game of the season. They've enjoyed an extended homestand that ended with a 5-2 victory against Montreal on Tuesday.  New Jersey beat Ottawa, 5-4, in overtime on the road last night. This is the Devils' third game in four nights. New Jersey has failed to win six of the past seven times it has played without rest.  The Devils have been a major surprise opening the season with a 6-1 record after finishing 29th in the NHL last season with 28 victories. The Devils definitely are improved. They have some promising young talent. They've also been fortunate with four of their victories coming by one goal.  The Sharks' Stanley Cup window probably has closed, but they still are a respected, veteran team that definitely is playoff-worthy. It remains to be seen if the Devils can keep up their surprising pace.  The Devils are likely to have backup Keith Kinkaid in goal after regular netminder Cory Schneider suffered a lower-body injury last night. The Sharks have dominated this series winning seven of the past nine meetings. They are 5-0 in their last five visits to New Jersey.

Orlando actually looked impressive in holding off Miami during its opening game victory. That was the first time the Magic had won its season opener since 2012.  The Magic really would like to build off that momentum. They have a great opportunity here in their second game. Brooklyn is even worse than Orlando and just lost sparkplug point guard Jeremy Lin. The Nets lost 39 of 46 games that Lin missed last season. It was extremely depressing for the Nets to see Lin ruputre the patella tendon in his right knee during their 140-131 season-opening loss to the Pacers. As you can tell by that score, the Nets still aren't playing any defense.  Orlando has the better lineup with Elfrid Payton, Terrence Ross, Even Fournier, Nikola Vucevic and Aaron Gordon, who is primed for a breakout season.

Jazz vs Wolves
OVER 198½ -105 Lost

Play Type: Top Premium
There is too much star power here for these teams not to combine to break 200 points.  Yes, Utah plays tough defense. But Minnesota doesn't. The Timberwolves ranked third-from-the-bottom in defensive field goal percentage last season. Adding Jeff Teague and Jamal Crawford isn't going to help their defense. But the Timberwolves do have plenty of offense with Teague, Crawford, Taj Gibson and Jimmy Butler joining Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins.  The Jazz are down their two leading scorers from a year ago, Gordon Hayward and George Hill. Utah's new point guard, Ricky Rubio, is a former Timberwolf and is better for the Over than Hill was. Rubio will be motivated for a big performance as this is his first trip to Minnesota since being traded.  The Jazz have balanced scoring and a strong bench to make up for Hayward. Alec Burks finally is healthy and contributed 16 points off the bench in just 15 minutes in Utah's 106-99 home win against the Nuggets two nights ago. Utah played at a quick pace during preseason when it averaged more than 112 points a game. The Jazz aren't so half-court inclined anymore with Quin Snyder.

Yankees vs Astros
Astros
-131 at 5Dimes
Play Type: Top Premium
The Yankees have been dominant at home going 19-3 in their last 22 games at Yankee Stadium. The Astros have been equally dominant at home winning 15 of their last 17 games at Minute Maid Park. This includes a 4-0 playoff record.  This game is at Minute Maid Parik. The Yankees are 1-4 in their five playoff road games.  Home field certainly means a lot here. But there are other factors why I'm so strong on the Astros in this game.  The pitching matchup is Luis Severino versus Justin Verlander. Severino had a breakout season reaching his high ceiling. But he's largely untested in playoff, pressure games.  Verlander is a proven pro. The former AL MVP is 10-5 with a 3.18 ERA all-time in postseason action. Verlander has been the absolute nuts since joining the Astros going 8-0 in eight sarts. He's been at his finest during the playoffs, too, going 3-0 with a 2.04 ERA.  The Astros finished the regular season with the No. 1 offense in the majors. They are batting a puny .147 in this ALCS. Masahiro Tanaka has been a huge problem for them. Tanaka has held the Astros to two runs in 13 innings. But the Astros aren't facing Tanaka here.  The Yankees not only lose their huge home field advantage, but also their momentum with Thursday's travel day. This also gives the Astros a much needed day to regroup.  If the Yankees do indeed beat Verlander and the Astros here in Houston, they are most deserving of the American League pennant. I don't see that happening, though, in this Game 6.
