Free Sports Picks 11/13/2008

Today’s free sports picks cover the NFL, College Football, and the NBA!  There’s lots of action to look forward to.  If you like what one of our cappers has to say, be sure to check out his premium page to see what kind of winners he can offer you tonight, and throughout the week.  Now is a great time to get started with all of the basketball and football you can handle!

Our first free pick is from Bob Harvey on the New England/New York Jets game tonight.  Bob is hitting at a 60% clip in the NBA already and has won 3 of his last 4 NFL selections.  Bob’s free play tonight is on the total for the game, here’s what he has to say:

Before you start calling this the AFC East “Game of the Year” ,please step away from your remote control and remain calm at all times. Keep in mind that while these two teams are tied atop their division, they’ve also played some pretty week competition to get there. The Jets are currently the only team in the league, in a playoff posistion, that the Patriots. NY has played just two playoff worthy teams, the Pats and the Arizona Cardinals. The Pats haven’t played Oakland or Cincinnati, but they did get to feast on San Francisco. The Jets are the bigger mirage. They have looked good going 4-1 over their last five, but the teams they have played over that stretch are 11-34, and five of those 11 wins belong to Buffalo.  Injuries could well determine the outcome of this game. The Patriots injury list keeps growing with linebacker Adalius Thomas for joining back Laurence Maroney, Rodney Harrison,Vince Wilfork, Ty Warren, and Stephen Neal. New England is especially thin at running back. After Maroney went down, the responsibility fell to LaMont Jordan. A calf injury to Jordan landed Sammy Morris the gig, but after Morris hurt his knee. Now the Pats are relying on BenJarvus Green-Ellis. Who? My take is the Patrots will try to get it done on defense while Eric Mangini and is conservative playing will help keep the score down. The UNDER is the play in this one.

Next up we’ve got Dave Price, who is +473 units over the past 7 days.  Here is his NBA free pick of the day for Thursday:

1 Unit FREE PLAY on Dallas Mavericks pk
Both the Bulls and the Mavs are struggling in the early going but I like the veteran Mavs to continue their dominance of the young Bulls tonight. Dallas is 8-3 SU and 9-2 ATS over the last 11 meetings at Chicago and 18-5 SU over the last 23 meetings with the Bulls. Now that’s owning a team! The Road team is also 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings. The Bulls are just 3-9 ATS in their last 12 vs. the NBA Southwest and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game. Take the Mavs tonight.

That’s it for today!  Good luck!
