CBB | Baylor @ Texas | 01/31 | 2:00 AM UTC



ANALYSIS: Baylor has won 12 of the past 13 meetings. ...

CBB | Siena 70 @ Marist 55 | 01/29 | 7:00 PM UTC

Marist +5


ANALYSIS: Ten of the last 11 Siena-Marist games in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., have been decided by seven or fewer points, and I think we're in for another tight game Sunday at McCann Arena. The Saints are 8-2 in conference but have been far less impressive on the road, losing at Canisius and beating Niagara by six in their last two road trips. The Red Foxes, picked one spot behind Siena in the preseason poll, are 4-1 in day games and should bounce back strong following Friday night's 16-point home loss to Rider. Grab the points.

NFL | San Francisco 7 @ Philadelphia 31 | 01/29 | 8:00 PM UTC

San Francisco +3


ANALYSIS: Jalen Hurts looked plenty healthy as the Eagles demolished the Giants in the divisional round. But facing the 49ers' defense -- which has allowed the fewest points and yards while racking up the most interceptions -- is another challenge entirely. San Francisco will slow the pace, and Philly's ferocious pass rush, with a grinding attack. The 49ers can toss the ball to Christian McCaffrey and Deebo Samuel to move the chains versus the NFL's 23rd-rated rush efficiency defense. Brock Purdy has been more than a game manager; his agility and ability to extend plays will be critical Sunday. Kyle Shanahan is 7-1 ATS in the playoffs, his lone pointspread loss coming in the Super Bowl. This game should be a pick'-em, so I really love getting San Francisco to +3 (-120).

CBB | Cal-Baker. 69 @ Hawaii 72 | 01/29 | 5:00 AM UTC

Cal-Baker. +17


ANALYSIS: Hawaii is 278th in pace and Cal State Bakersfield is even slower at 357th. That makes the points more appealing in this Big West matchup. The banged-up Roadrunners are on a 1-5 SU and ATS skid since losing leading scorer Kaleb Higgins to a season-ending injury on Jan. 5. But they got an important piece back last game when sophomore Dalph Panopio returned from hand surgery and played 25 minutes. Take the points

NFL | Cincinnati 20 @ Kansas City 23 | 01/29 | 11:30 PM UTC

Hayden Hurst OVER 3.5 Total Receptions -157


ANALYSIS: Hayden Hurst has made at least four catches in seven of his past nine games, and one of the outliers came versus Kansas City. In that Week 13 win, Hurst drew three targets and caught two balls despite suffering an early injury. In fact, he ran only six routes so he was targeted half the time. This prop is heavily juiced, but I think it's worth it now that Hurst has no injury designation.
