Tennis | K Pliskova vs D Gavrilova
Play on: K Pliskova +134 at BMaker
Game Analysis

Pick: 1* Pliskova to win

- Gavrilova faces a short turnaround following a dramatic 7-5/3-6/6-7 defeat in the Hong Kong final late Sunday night (local time)

- She spent 3hrs 13mins on court during the final, and has flown +4000 miles to Moscow. 

- Pliskova is 14cm taller than Gavrilova and should thrive in these quick conditions with her big serve & groundstrokes

- She'll also have chances to attack the Gavrilova second serve

- 6th match in 8 days for Gavrilova, take the physically fresher Pliskova to win

NCAA-F | Colorado vs Washington State
Play on: Colorado +10½ -110 at BMaker
Game Analysis

Some of you will recall that I successfully played against the Cougars, at Cal, last week, the start of a 14-4 Fri/Sat/Sun streak. Washington State was "riding high," entering that game. The 6-0 Cougs had a top-ten ranking and were coming off victories over USC and Oregon. They'd close as -16.5 point favorites.

Then, Friday The 13th got them. Something did, anyway. The Cougs didn't show up and the Bears came away with a convincing 37-3 victory. Thats right. They beat the closing line by 50 points. 

Off that rude awakening, I'm not sure that the Cougs are ready to be laying double-digits here. Colorado, which beat WSU by 14 points last season, is 9-4 ATS its last 13 true road games. Both this season's road games have been close, each decided by four or fewer points. Take a look at the visitors here.

NBA | Celtics vs Cavs
Play on: UNDER 212 -110
Game Analysis

Free pick on Celtics/Cavs UNDER 212

I see some value here in the total on Tuesday's highly anticipated Opening Night matchup between the Celtics and Cavaliers. Not only did these two teams face off in the Eastern Conference Finals last year, they made a blockbuster trade in the offseason. Cleveland traded Kyrie Irving to Boston for Isaiah Thomas and Jae Crowder. A deal that was sparked by Irving's demand to be traded. 

LeBron James and the rest of the Cavaliers who have been with the team took that trade personal, as Irving basically said he didn't want to play with them anymore. Needless to say, this is one of the rare times you get a playoff type atmosphere in October. Both teams will be out to make a statement. 

I look for that intensity to result in a much lower-scoring game than the number the books have set for this total. Keep in mind there's a lot of new faces on both teams and there's just not going to be that chemistry.

Cleveland has 3 new starters in Derrick Rose, Dwayne Wade and Crowder. Boston has two new faces in Irving and Gordon Hayward, plus will be without expected starting power forward Marcus Morris, who figures to be out another week or so with a knee injury. James is questionable for the Cavs, but I fully expect him to play. If he doesn't, that only adds more value to this one going below the mark. Take the UNDER!

NCAA-F | BYU vs East Carolina
Play on: East Carolina +5½ -110 at BMaker
Game Analysis

Free Play from Doc’s Sports. #342 Take East Carolina Pirates over BYU Cougars (Saturday 7 pm CBSSN) There is just no way BYU should be favored against any FBS team on the road. These are two bad teams and thus getting over 5 points is too good to pass up. BYU is 1-6 on the season and they have not been competitive in any of those losses. A few of those games the score made it look more competitive than it actually was. The Pirates have played a difficult schedule with four of their six losses coming against ranked teams. BYU is 0-8 ATS in their last 8 games overall. BYU has major issues on offense and I just do not see them winning this game straight-up. Do not miss out on Doc’s Sports Weekend Football card featuring top plays in college football and NFL.
