What's up, guys? It's Kayla began, um, contributor for the Unwrap Sports Network today and bringing you guys for more pics and some news that we have going on today.
Not as big as this lady's we had yesterday and not as much news dropping for us either.
So, uh, let's go ahead and do a recap over what happened last night.
Did not do too well on our picks last night.
You know, we thought they were sparked picks after looking at the ****ytics and stats, and I'm trends and whatnot.
Hit two of the college picks.
Colorado State hit as well as loyal of Chicago.
Hit on the rest of our picks last night.
Um so the Lakers first half and later spread missus was Denver, Mrs.
Well, after getting smoked by Houston and our other college basketball pick, Virginia Tech.
Being North Carolina by eight did not happen either, as they are one in double overtime yesterday by two, I believe.
All right, guys.
Many good and jumping to the news that happened today.
It last night we saw his eye on have his MBA debut is pretty ah, slow to start.
But he picked it up in the second half.
I'm at one point he went for 17 straight points, which is pretty incredible for him, especially from the three point line of his stat line.
Last night, he put 18 minutes going eight of 11 from the floor, four for four from three, which is shocking.
I didn't think he was gonna be that efficient from the three point line this season on, he had a total of 22 points, seven rebounds and three assists.
So overall, in the limited minutes that Zion did play last night, he played pretty well, and so he could be able to see what type of player he's gonna be.
He's gonna be able to really take this lead by storm.
Something else that happened today.
I'll starve started.
We're gonna be released tonight on TNT at 7 p.m.
Kathy, 55 for joining the broadcast will be bringing you guys some pics later on to the broadcast, so keep your eye out for those again.
The All Stars starters will be announced on TNT tonight at 7 p.
So right before that Lakers Nets game at 8 p.m.
So it'll be pretty interesting to see who those starters are.
And with the captain, Who the captain's we're gonna be.
I'm pretty sure it'll probably be LeBron in the West and then Johannes in the east.
But who knows? Something could surprise us.
There has officially been a an arrest warrant put out for Antonio Brown last night for felony burglary as well as battery.
Um, not a surprise to me and others.
A bet or some lines put out for him being arrested on need of 2020.
And think at one point, his plus 700.
I wasn't able to grab that, but the man barely made it a month into the year before you.
He hasn't a restaurant out for him, so let's hope baby can get this figured out.
And I don't know about his future in the NFL, but hopefully he can find a way to get back in.
And if not, um, hopefully he can find something that can keep him occupied and out of trouble like this.
Um And then the last thing that happened today that I was able to catch up on was the 2020 McDonald's All American roster dropped today.
So those with your, um the best high school hoops players in the nation are gonna be playing against one another.
Everybody I love in Joel.
I enjoy watching the guns All American game because it kind of gives you an inside glimpse into what the college basketball season is gonna look like the following year.
So, um, keep it.
If you have any favorite players that are supposed to be committed to your score would ever go and check that out and you could be able to watch them when the game goes on.
All right, guys, let's go ahead and jump into these pics.
I'm gonna start off with college basketball as I always do.
And tonight, the first game that I have for you guys is Louisiana attack minus nine and 1/2 or minus 10 depending on what you get on your book at Middle Tennessee State University in Murphysboro, Tennessee.
Shot out. That's where I'm from.
Grew up there for 10 years.
So, um, didn't go there.
Went to four to state, but no one into issues about and they used to have a good basketball program.
But as we're going to see here um, they're not as great as they once were on that game is gonna be on at 7 30 and you could be able to view it on ESPN.
Plus, if you have it.
So I'm gonna go take Louisiana attack minus nine and 1/2 minus 10.
Here, NTS you is foreign 11 against the spread in their last 15 games as an underdog, um, in Louisiana Tech ranks 17th and points allowed on defense.
They average giving up 60 points, seven points per game, which is pretty low.
So they at one of the best defense is in the nation, while also a raking 23rd and defensive efficiency.
Our defensive field goal percentage.
Excuse me at 38.3%.
Reporting opponents to shooting.
That is pretty good as well.
Um, so the notes we have on anti issue here's there.
Oh, in six and league play.
So in their conference in the conference play, they're not playing good at all.
And empty issue ranks 162nd scoring and 253rd in shooting percentage.
So a very, uh, we have a team that's really good on often are really terrible and on offense.
Excuse me against the team.
Naturally good on defense.
So that really stands out to me in this game.
Issues also very bad on D and they think the other and 25th and points allowed in 302nd defensive field goal percentage.
No matter what type of offense is going up against his team, they're having success against them and empty issues not able to stop anybody, no matter where they place.
So I feel pretty confident in taking the easy an attack by 10 points in this game.
The next game on the slate for you guys today is, um, Washington minus one.
Or if you got it early enough this morning, a pickup and they're at Utah at 8 p.
m. And that's going on the Pac 12 network.
Um, the I am gonna go ahead and take a Washington minus one.
But I got like I said earlier, I gotta pick him this morning.
So go ahead and hop on that if you can.
Washington, um, could.
If not, should I have a better record than they currently do? I'm their current records.
It's 12 and seven.
Um, the reason about barely lost to Oregon in their last time out, and I think that that game went to overtime.
Thanks very, for joining us.
Uh, yes, it barely lost a highly ranked Oregon team in overtime their last time out.
So that's that looks real good for this Washington team, and two out of their lack of 203 of their last games have gone to overtime.
So it shows that he became close and they always have the potential to win that game.
So that's good for us here, Um, also with Washington.
Their last six losses have been by seven points or less.
They're staying close in these games and give themselves a chance.
So that looks real nice.
And their own seven point loss, the only seven point loss that they have had was against Gonzaga, who we all know is a very good team.
And up there in the upper echelon of college basketball teams, Washington also remains the own remains, the only loss to number one Baylor.
Washington is the only team that is being Baylor this year, and we all know how Baylor plays and they played very well, she writes.
out played the defense.
So if Washington is able to hold Baylor down and be able to beat them, I know is that the beginning of the year? So the chemistry, everything wasn't there.
But I still believe that this Washington team is better than this Utah team.
Frank's 21st in defensive efficiency, and they have four different players players averaging over 11 points.
So they're spreading the wealth.
Every player's contributing to this team, and they're really buying in here on defense.
They're highly ranked and very efficient on the defensive side of the ball, Um, heading over to the other side of this game.
Utah, on the other hand, is a is in a really bad slump Right now.
I'm losing five of their last six games, and four of those five losses have been by more than 16 points.
So not only are they losing their getting absolutely blown out in these games.
Bye bye, career. I, uh thanks for joining us.
I really like that name.
Um And are obviously Utah's obviously on over four against the spread street.
Um, during this time as well, the Utes offense has been struggling of late, and Utah's defense has been even worse, Um, as the rank 199th nationally and defense of efficiency.
So they're not playing on defense.
They're not making shots.
They're really struggling to get any type of momentum going once they step on the court.
And the last that I have here for you guys is Washington is eight and three against the spread in their last 11 games as favorites.
So that minus one list him as favors.
There s O that wolf that brings in that trend play moving on to the last pick for college basketball Today.
We have Southern Miss at the University of Alabama Birmingham or you AP is. We all know them.
I'm in that line, is at my estate and 1/2 and I think it has climbed up toe as high as minus nine and 1/2 and may drop down 10 minus nine.
That game's on it, E p m.
And if you have ESPN plush, will be able to watch it on there.
I'm gonna go ahead inside with you.
A B minus eight and 1/2 or minus nine or mice nine and 1/2.
Whatever you can get it out.
The reasoning behind this Southern miss has very poor offensive production averaging only 66.
Um, for game, and that's ranking them 297.
The country again.
That's out of 350 into Devil.
A basketball division when teams So right there at the bottom, they're not playing well offensively.
They're not moving the ball taking their time.
So not not good for them.
If they're trying to score against Bernie, are you a B here? Southern Mrs also owned seven on the road this season.
They have not won a game on the road at all.
Um, I wasn't sure about the Spreads early against this spreads record for that, but we just went ahead and grab their Oh, for seven on the road there, Southern Miss.
His defense is almost as horrid as their offenses.
They ranked 294th overall.
So Justus about is their defense has been her.
Their offense has been their defense has been just about as bad.
So the combination of a bad offense and bad defense, I really do not see them being ever stick around with you.
a B at home here, um, on you a b side of things.
What we have is your baby is eight and two at home, said a pretty strong record playing on their home court.
And one thing that does worry me is that you would be does struggle on the offensive end as they rank 318 nationally.
Um, but they do make up for this by playing some junk yard defense, which right there defense ranks 33rd nationally.
So they're right up right up there at the top of the top.
Defense is in in the nation's.
So, um, considering that Southern Miss is not good at either end of the on either side of the ball on offense or defense, and I think with you a B at least having one positive and on the defense of side of the ball, that should bode well for them.
Toe, go ahead and pull this game out by probably double digits.
I'm Southern Ms is one of five against the spread in their last six games and won five against the spread in their last six road games.
So they're not covering the spread, Um, and Reese as of recently as well as on the road this year.
And last trend for you guys here is, uh, you A B is five and one against the spread in their last six home games.
So every home game, Pretty much for you, baby.
They're covering that spread.
So is there a college basketball picks for today? Guys, I'm gonna go ahead and move into the loan.
N b a pick that I have tonight. I wasn't.
There's only three games going on tonight.
Then too thrilled with the other two games besides this one.
Um, so the one picture that I do have for you guys tonight is gonna be in this Lakers, and that's game.
And this game is at 8 p.
I'm starting to see chalk and shack and all the all the guys on the Lakers opened here at minus five or minus five and 1/2.
I think it's been fluctuating between those two lines.
All right, I'm gonna go ahead and take the Lakers minus five.
I'm the Lakers actually been mean.
They asked the past few times.
I've bet on them.
So hopefully this time they will follow through.
Um, it was hard to go back in and and go ahead and pull the trigger on this one, but I went ahead with it anyways, and that's because Brooklyn, um and that's have really been slumping.
They've been on a four game losing streak, and then Kyrie has been in and out of the lineup with his injuries.
We all know that comes with Kyrie Irving, and he is always in our lineup.
He always has some issues going on.
Um, no matter what it is, he is probable for tonight.
So expecting to play and he'll probably come out hot because he's playing against LeBron.
And you know, that whole history that happened back in Cleveland, you know, there's an apology issued and whatnot, but we'll see how that goes Between knows, too.
The Lakers air six and one against the Spread and their seven games playing on no rest.
So on the back end of a back to back on the Lakers air, uh, pretty almost undefeated, they lost that one game, um, on the back and on the back end of a back to back.
So if I really well, when they have no rest, Which is kind of shocking to me because most things in the N b a.
Do not you kind of want.
You kind of have heavy legs.
But the good thing here is that, um, even though the Lakers played in, you work in the Big Apple last night, they're not having to travel that far to get to Brooklyn.
It's right there.
So they should be able to rest up pretty easily, and I don't see that.
I don't foresee that being a huge problem.
Um, and the Lakers are also for and one against, the spread of their last five road games.
The one lost there for that spread was last night, of course, against the New York Knicks, where they were favored by 11 points.
They did not end up winning by 11 points they did of when the game is very, uh, ugly.
In my opinion, free throws being missed.
LeBron plays a crazy first half and then kind of disappears in the second half.
Um, and then just not making shots.
So I mean, the defense does not look like it did at the beginning of the season, so it does kind of worrying me here, especially on the back end of back to back.
But I still think with these trends that the Lakers were gonna go ahead and end up covering these five points.
Um, again, with this being the back end of a back to back, keep an eye on any of these Lakers players, especially LeBron or Anthony Davis going to rest on the bench tonight.
Um, more so Davis than LeBron just because of his tailbone injury that he's just returning from.
So it's just I've been keeping on there.
