Stars vs Canucks
Canucks -135 at 5Dimes
1* Free Play on Canucks -135
The Canucks (10-6-3, 23 points) are doing everything they can to keep up with the Oilers in the Pacific. Tonight, they’ll continue in that endeavor by hosting the Stars (9-8-2, 20 points) in Vancouver.
The Stars are currently ahead of only Minnesota and Chicago in the Central, but a single win could leapfrog them over Winnipeg and Nashville. Only a 3-2 overtime loss has kept Dallas from now riding a six-game winning streak. Instead, the Stars are now aiming to build a new winning streak after taking down Calgary 3-1.
On average, the Stars are scoring 2.42 goals per game (29th) and allowing 2.37 goals per game (2nd).
Goaltending has been the strength of this Dallas team, and Ben Bishop leads the way with six wins, a save percentage of .930, and 2.12 goals allowed per game.
The Canucks trail only Edmonton and Arizona in the Pacific, but they’ll need to build a winning streak if they’ll keep up. Vancouver is coming off a 5-3 win over Nashville. Perhaps the biggest advantage the Canucks have in tonight’s contest is that Dallas will be playing the second game of a back-to-back.
On average, the Canucks are scoring 3.21 goals per game (12th) while allowing 2.58 goals per game (5th).
Center Elias Pettersson leads Vancouver with eight goals, 15 assists, and 23 points.
Minnesota vs Iowa
Iowa -3 +100 at betonline
336 Minnesota at Iowa
Huge letdown spot for the Golden Gophers, who called last week’s game against Penn State the biggest home game in the stadiums history. After that storm the field game we can easily see why Minnesota would have a hard time getting back up for this contest.
Iowa on the other hand doesn’t have nearly the same expectations, especially after coming up short last week at Wisconsin. But our numbers show the Hawkeyes to be the slightly better team, as Minnesota has taken advantage of a weak schedule.

Brooklyn at Denver 10:30 ET
Nuggets (-) over Nets- I’ve expected much more out of the Nets than I have seen so far this season. Brooklyn began this five game road trip with a win at Portland but have dropped this last two and are 1-4 SU on the NBA road. This ‘price’ seems a bit high as the Nets have had such great success against Denver. You can have even better success with Chip’s ‘Guaranteed’ NBA winners…don’t mis ANY of today’s action. Brooklyn is 9-2 ATS against the Nuggets in the last 11 meetings including 5-1 ATS in Denver. Line is way out of whack…take DENVER!
Bengals vs Raiders
Raiders -10 -114 at BMaker
The set-up: The Bengals are 0-9 and after Miami has put together a red hot two-game win streak, they’re now the front runners to get the top spot in the draft for next season. Why put up a fight now when you can get that No. 1 pick? The Raiders on the other hand are coming off a monumental 26-24 win over the Chargers last week (their second victory in a row.) Oakland has everything to play for moving forward, as it now tries to solidify a wild card spot in the next few weeks. So from a situational stand point, I believe this one sets up for a massive home side destruction.
The pick: Note though as well that the Bengals are a poor 3-9 ATS in their last 12 off a division game (including 0-2 ATS this season), while Oakland is 10-5 ATS in its last 15 at home (including 3-1 ATS this year). I like da Raydah’s to lay the hammer down in all three phases. Consider Oakland this Sunday.

Florida vs Missouri
Missouri +7 -105 at betonline
Free Play from Doc’s Sports. Take #390 Missouri Tigers over Florida Gators (12p.m., Saturday, November 16 CBS) We will grab the points as Missouri needs to get back on track after losing 3 straight road games. Florida is solid but they are not explosive on offense and if Missouri does not help them they will struggle to pull away and win this game big. Missouri is a much different team at home, as they have covered the spread in 5 of their last 6 home games. Missouri is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games against Florida. Do not miss out on Doc’s Sports weekend football card! We are the king of the Big 10 this season (2-0 last week) and now is the time to jump on board with another card on Saturday and Sunday.

South Carolina vs Texas A&M
South Carolina +11 -105 at betonline
Talk about being desperate for a win, and your talking about a South Carolina team that needs wins here against Texas A&M this week and Clemson after that, to be bowl eligible. First things first in what must be considered a monumental task which will have the Gamecocks leaving everything on the field here vs the Aggies this Saturday.
Texas A&M has lost 10 of their L/14 SU and are 0-14 ATS off a bye during the regular season since 2008.
CFB road team (S CAROLINA) – allowing 200 or less total yards/game over their last 2 games against opponent after outgaining opp by 175 or more total yards in their previous game are 24-7 SU L/10 seasons for a 78% conversion rate for bettors.

Dave’s Thursday Free Play:
1* on Denver Nuggets -8.5
The Key: The Nuggets will be hungry off an upset loss to the Hawks last time out. Look for them to put away the Brooklyn Nets, who are in the midst of a tough, grueling road trip. They will be playing their 4th straight road games tonight off a loss to the Jazz and a blowout loss to the Suns in their last two games. And the Nets could be without Kyrie Irving, who is battling a shoulder injury. They also lost fellow starter Caris LeVert recently and are lacking in depth. The Nuggets will test that depth as they are one of the deepest teams in the NBA. Take Denver.
