There's only two games in the N B A and then a pretty decently loaded college basketball slate for us over and attack these later on.
Um, well, recap of last night is a rough, rough night with about two or three bad beats.
Um, with ornate overall, real sad, um, two and six in college.
And two into an embassy.
Not about India cannot find 100 but I'm not so well on the others.
Let's hope we can kick that trending keep moving and get this train back on its track here.
I'm gonna start off with you guys with some sporting today.
Um, so I'm just gonna start with the big thing that's happening this weekend, which is all Star weekend, an MBA in the year of 2020.
Um, this Friday is gonna be the Rising Stars game to me.

That's on at 9 p.
m. Eastern time on TNT.
There's a replacement in that game.
Um, DeAndre is not gonna be playing in that game, so he's gonna be replaced.
Um, I'm not sure who was.
I didn't see that, but I did see the under 18 was out on.
He's not to be playing in the Rising Stars game on Saturday.
We have the skills competition.
That three point contest is was everybody's favorite.
The slam dunk contest.
I'm excited for the slam dunk contest.
There's a lot of names in there that is all gonna be happening at 8 p.m.
Eastern time on TNT is Well, um, And then So a little bit of news that is going along with that.
Devin Booker is replacing Damian Lillard and a three point contest as well as the All Star Game.
As Dane tweaked his grew in in his last game.
Some other news that goes along with David Willard being out.

More baseball Tomorrow D one Baseball kicks off its there opening day.
So if you have a favorite college baseball team, I'm go ahead and turn into the game.
Show them some love in their opening game tomorrow.
Hum some other news in baseball.
The Astros came out and, uh, gave apologies.
I guess you could stay home.
None of them were really apologies, and in my opinion, they're very just kind of beating around the bush.
It be well, and nobody really taken full responsibility for everything, anything, so I could be good.
It just doesn't mean anything to me now.
It's just kind of a bummer that the seems kind of did that and cheated the game of baseball on and then a happy birthday to you Happy Big 43rd birthday to the great Randy Moss and one of the greatest worshippers of all time.
And then for your NASCAR bands, NASCAR is about to get kicked off and underway again this weekend.
On Sunday, that will be the 16th.
I believe on the Daytona 500 there in Daytona, Florida, always one of the great races of the year.
So be sure to tune in to that if you were interested in NASCAR.
Thanks, Trevor. Girlfriend joining.
Um, we're about to get started with our picks.
I was just going over some sporting news that happened today as well as what's gonna be coming up this weekend.
Should go ahead and jump things off here.
We're gonna jump into our college basketball place like we always do. First.
1st 1 side for you guys is gonna be you see, University of California, Santa Barbara, heading to the University of California. Davis.
Barba trick different than the make UCSB Santa Barbara's favorite in this one by three points.
These games on at 10 p.m. Eastern time.
We're gonna take Santa Barbara minus those three points.
UCSB is 62 and warn against the spread in their last nine road games.
And U C Davis is to an eight against the spread in their last 10 games vs Santa Barbara.
You see, s piece of Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara's forward.
However you say it should be too much for the undersides.
I'm sound plays really well, he's a He's a double double threat almost every game, and U.
C Davis is a pretty small team.
I'm so expect I'm sours.
However you say his name.
I'm to be ableto really put it on them down there on the block and on the boards.
Um, and they don't talk for that.
C Davis is best rebounder on their team is a guard, which does not bode well for them to be able to crash the glass very well against this taller front that Santa Barbara has a sudden game on top for you guys tonight is gonna be Portland heading to Pacific on Pacific.
Its favorite in this one by 12 points in this game is on a 10 p.
Eastern time as well.
And we're gonna take Pacific minus 12.
Portland is five Earth.
It's usually Portland is 15 and one against the spread in their last seven road games and 3 12 and one against the spread in their last 16 games.
Over all, support.
One is not playing good basketball recently as well as on the road.
Pacific is playing with a ton of confidence right now, Um, after winning four straight games and they beat Portland on the road in the first match, up by 10 points of a score of 65 55.
Pacific's defense has been strong, really limiting, UM, three out of their last four opponents to shoot or to score 58 points or less.
So their defense has been real locked out here as of late, and Portland has lost nine straight games.
Eight of those last nine losses have come by double digits.
So four points isn't too much over that double digit line.
So I expect specifically, go ahead and pull us for not come on for once, even though they are on the road.
Next game for you guys is gonna be Charleston heading to Hofstra.
This game's at 7 p.m.
Eastern time on the CBS Sports Network, and Hospira is favorite in this one by four and 1/2 points.
It opened up five and 1/2 minutes since Trump Point, but we're gonna take hops for my just four and 1/2.
The Road team is 37 and three against the spread in the last 13 matchups between these two teams, Hofstra is 10 and three against the spread in their last 13 as a favorite, and Hoster has won seven of their past nine games with both of the losses that occurred during that time coming by only two points.
So I'm pretty good.
Looks there for Hofstra and nurture losses.
They lost by two, and they've won seven of their last night.
So that looks really good for us.
Hofstra has an elite offense, with five different players averaging 10.
6 points per game or more, and Charleston will find it hard to keep up with lobsters Lobsters offense, especially since they don't really have anyone outside of ah Grant realer on their team.
That can really be a dominant force on the hardwood.
Coming on to our next game here for you guys is gonna be the University of Louisiana Monroe, heading to Troy in Alabama at 7 p.
This game can be seen on ESPN plus, if you have it, and Troy's favourite, this one by six points of her in detective, six points with Troy.
Um, University of Louisiana Monroe is, +06 and one against the spread in their last seven road games, so they have get to cover the spread.
In their last seven games, Troy is five for and one against sprint at home.
So not a great against the spread record there for Troy at home.
But considering that Monroe was only 06 and one is to spread in the last seven away games, that doesn't scare me away too much.
Monroe has lost 10 games in a row, and Troy has played better recently with wins over with a win over Georgia State.
And they really hung in there with a good South Alabama team in their conference.
Expect Troy to be out for revenge as University of Louisiana Monroe beat them earlier this season, um, in University of Louisiana Monroe as that trying to spoke that has ****ked that I spoke about earlier has mentioned on the struggle on the road, and they have gone, Oh, intent on the road this season straight up and 27 and one against the spread.
So I'm not very good.
Looks there for University of Louisiana Monroe on the road to go and take Troy and points in this one.
Thanks, Steph forever to 983 for joining.
We're about halfway through our college fixer towards the end of our college picks here and gonna jump into the other two n b A games.
I didn't really dwell too deeply into the N B A games at all.
I'm just because there's only two games on this wait for us tonight and the pretty hit or miss our yeah, pretty much hit or miss between those two.
So I'll give you a couple picks for those.
But I'm not gonna give you too much information heading in back to our college basketball quasar.
Next one for you guys is gonna be Florida Gulf Coast University heading to Kennesaw State.
This game's at 7 p.
Eastern time on ESPN plus as well, FTC You is favored in this one by seven points.
Um, it started off at minus five and 1/2.
I believe, a menace.
It's risen a whole lot since then.
Kennesaw State is currently on a 14 game losing streak, so they apparently do not know how to win ballgames.
Um, and this game has the makings of being a game decided by mistakes.
Kennesaw State rates 325th in the nation in ball protection.
They have a turnover percentage of 22.
So they turned over the ball pretty much almost on 1/4 of their offensive possessions, while Florida Gulf coasts defense forces the 98 most turnovers in the nation.
They forced turnovers at a 20.
Florida Gulf Coast when the first matchup between these two teams, 73 to 51.
So that's a 22 point advantage.
And that's when Florida Gulf Coast was at home.
So expect a little digression there and the point differential.
But I still expect them to win this game by double digits, especially, um, more than seven points and the last game I have on top guys in the college here tonight is gonna be BYU heading to oil of mayor amount This game's at 11 p.
m. Eastern time on ESPN.
You So it's our late game tonight BYU this favorite in this one by 11 and 1/2 points and we're gonna take BYU with those 11 points in the first match up between these two teams on BYU ended up winning by 25 points, so that's a very, very wide margin there.
Um, Royal in their amount, was only able to put up 38 total points in that game.
So they're having real struggles scoring the ball here against BYU.
BYU ranks among the best offenses, ranks as ranks among one of the best offenses in the country and has improved on that side of the ball once they have interconference play.
Thank you stuff forever to 93 for that step of 20.
I really appreciate it s oh, yeah, like I'm saying to you, I use offense is very, very, very good.
Um, one of the tops in the nation in name only gotten better once they interconference play.
This is a conference matchup for beauty use and the last thing for you guys on this is B Y used last two road wins.
Both came by at least 14 points.
Um, actually, I went back.
I re looked at that and actually had three road games during that span, and two of the two out of three road games were by 14 points.
So there is one that was excluded from that.
So I do apologize.
But that doesn't bode well for a favor for this double digit spread for BYU on the road.
All right, guys, those are all my college basketball picks.
I wasn't in love with this late tonight.
I looked at some of the games for tomorrow, and I'm more excited about those.
But let's just stick with what we have tonight.
Hopefully, you guys can pick and choose from those that I just went over and be able to make some good, knowledgeable picks tonight for the N B A.
A Clippers heading to Boston to take on the Celtics Celtics favorite in this one by two.
This one's gonna be our main game tonight on TNT at 8 p.m.
On, and I'm sticking with Boston minus two in this one Clippers.
We've seen they have them have struggles on the road, even though they are a good team.
They do struggle have been on the road, then when they're back at home at Staples Center in L.
A in Boston is a better team defensively and offensively.
In my opinion, they just work much better as a team, and it just doesn't get his clumped up.
Also, Pappa being out for the Clippers is going to kind of be a little trouble for them as he can't bug Campbell and all the rest of those guards for Boston.
So I like the home team and the Celtics here in this one.
The next game around me.
I saw him at the same time, but this is gonna be the O case.
Oklahoma City Thunder heading to New Orleans to take on the pelicans.
Pelicans are favorite in this one by three and 1/2 points in this game is on at eight of 8 p.m.
Eastern time as well.
Just not televised. So you have to strain it.
Um, and I would lean in this one more Towards the New Orleans pelicans minus three and 1/2 they've been playing very well lately with the return of her with the addition of Zion Limes and into the lineup.
But that would be That's not my play in this game.
That would be my mean if I was leaning towards a side.
But my pick for this one is gonna be under 2 34 on the previous three times that these teams have played this season, the total had she had to go over to 34.
I know you see New Orleans and you want to jump all over that that over because they're really open up tempo team.
They went to get up and down the floor.
But like I mentioned three games previous in this season, New Orleans has and that the New Orleans Pelicans and the Thunder have met it has not gone over to 34.
It actually hasn't even really come close to go ahead and reach for that under and grab that especially.
I see teams kind of taking a little break here, ready for the I'm heading into the All Star weekend this weekend.
So just go ahead and take that if you can. Thanks.
One of the great for joining.
I just actually finished up all my picks, so you might wanna go back and watch the replay to go ahead and grab those that you apologize.
Not one of my longer streams.
I know, but like I said, I wanted to grow.
There's going to be a games on the slate.
Wasn't too thrilled with a college basketball asleep, but we had some pics in there anyways, um, so hopefully we can get back on track.
I'm like, last night and get back into our winning ways and continue to success that would happen.
