As the Holiday Season kicks into full gear, First and Fan is pleased to introduce a new section called the Betting Corner. In this section, you will find some of our favorite picks on betting lines across different sports.
BOCA RATON BOWL – 7PM
Memphis (8-4) vs. Western Kentucky (10-3)
Current Line- WKU (-6.5) O/U: 80 Points
Two high powered offenses going at it tonight in Boca Raton, expect minimal defense and fireworks on offense. Memphis is coming off an impressive Win vs. Houston to end their season, and WKU capped off their season with a win in the Conference USA championship game.
My Picks: Memphis (+6.5) and Over 80
Expecting Memphis to cover the spread, and pull off the upset win. In addition, I like the Over on points as this game looks to be a shootout.
Princeton (4-5) vs. Monmouth (9-2)- 7PM
Current Line- Monmouth (-3.5), O/U 153 points
A matchup of two teams that nobody cares about, but hey, doesn’t mean you have to watch the game. Princeton has struggled on the road this year and Monmouth has yet to lose at home.
My Picks: Monmouth (-3.5) and Over 153
Expecting Monmouth to win by double-digits and a total score Over 153.
NY Rangers vs. Pittsburgh Penguins 7PM
Current Lines: PIT (-1.5), O/U 5.5, Moneyline: PIT -160 NYR +140
Going to be a great matchup tonight in the Steel City. New York is riding a two-game win streak with impressive overtime wins over the weekend. Pittsburgh on the other hand, coming off two overtime losses after a nice seven-game win streak.
My Picks: NYR (+1.5), U 5.5, NYR Moneyline (+140)
Expecting a low scoring grudge match tonight with the New York Rangers coming out on top. We’ll see if 60 minutes is enough to decide this matchup.
