Rissa’s Expert Picks (March 5th)

Published

on

An analysis of my favorite daily sports betting picks. It’ll be a mix of spreads, over/under, money line, and props bets varying from sport to sport.

Playoffs implications, on the bubble tournament teams, and potential playoff matchups all in the breakdown below. Let’s get it!

Stanford @ Oregon St. -1 (9pm EST)

O/U 133.5

The Stanford Cardinals are on the bubble for the NCAA Tournament. They are on a four-game winning streak while the Oregon State Beavers are on a four-game losing streak. This will be a revenge game for Stanford especially with them in the discussion for the tournament they need every motivation to keep winning. Stanford is 5-3 ATS on the road and 19-10 ATS overall this season. In the last 7 meetings between these teams, the underdog is 5-2 ATS. The road team is 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings as well. I see that improving to 7-1 with a Stanford win.
My Pick: Stanford +1


LAC @ HOU PK (-110) (8pm EST)

O/U 236.5

Tonight’s big primetime game features the LA Clippers and the Houston Rockets. Both teams are playing their absolute best ball right now. The Clippers look to extend a five-game win streak and the Rockets look for their 11th win out of 14 games. For the Clippers, they are finally healthy which is why in this streak they are beating teams like the Nuggets, Grizzlies, and Thunder by at least 15 points. Meanwhile, Houston has won seven of their last eight home games. There’s no surprise this game has no spread and is a pick em with these teams evenly matched and will perhaps meet in the playoffs. The Clippers are 29-22 ATS with a day or more of rest. I think it’ll be close but the Clippers pull out the win.
My Pick: LAC PK/ML -110


PHI @ SAC -5 (10pm EST)

O/U 218.5

The Philadelphia 76ers are looking to stay afloat versus the Sacramento Kings. The Sixers have won six of their last ten games but are looking to avoid their third straight loss. The Kings are looking toward that 8th seed for the playoffs winning 12 of their last 17 games. The Sixers will have three starters out this game in Simmons, Richardson and Embiid. That doesn’t bode well for a team that is 9-23 on the road against a motivated Kings team. They are 5-20-1 ATS in their last 26 road games and 1-9-1 ATS as a road underdog. The Kings are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games. Head to head, the Sixers are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 meetings. I like the Kings to cover tonight.
My Pick: SAC -5
