Kenny White

Wizard of Odds

Kenny White learned the bookmaking business on his father's knee. By age 24 he was running a sportsbook and at 26 he was setting lines for Vegas' biggest casinos. A two-time winner of the prestigious Stardust Football Invitational, the originator of Player Power Ratings and the former head of the powerful Las Vegas Sports Consultants, Kenny arrived to Sportsline armed with new algorithms, ready to exploit mistakes in the betting line. He debuted with SportsLine in February 2017 and promptly went 51-33-2 (61 percent) on college hoops. He's destroying the books again in 2018.

LOSS
7:25 AM

Rhode Island has clinched the Atlantic 10, while Dayton is one game out of a double-bye that the top four teams from the conference receive. Even though Rhode Island beat Dayton 88-74 on the road earlier this year, Flyers head coach Anthony Grant is more than capable of coaching his kids up. Dayton should be very competitive against a team with not as much to play for.

The 76ers have steadily been moving up the Eastern Conference standings. They've won six of seven, covering five of those. The Bulls are going in the opposite direction with a 2-11 SU and ATS mark over their last 13 games. Kris Dunn has returned, which should give the Bulls a small boost, but my feeling is this team is in tanking mode. When the Bulls traded Nikola Mirotic to New Orleans, they didn't get one player who could help them. Mirotic was the Bulls' best all-around player with a big upside at only 26. I'm fading them and laying the points.

Betting against the Cavs was fun while it lasted. For now, there is still some value betting on them. LeBron James and his new teammates are 3-0 SU and ATS. They shoot better and play much better defense. Washington has overachieved without John Wall (knee) going 7-2 SU and ATS. But four of those wins came against non-playoff teams. I'm looking for a high-scoring game with Cleveland winning by 10.

Wed 2/21

Villanova is the top offensive team in the NCAA, and have an Over-Under mark of 17-9. The Wildcats have also gone Over in seven of their last 8 games. DePaul likes to run up-tempo offense and has gone Over in its last three games. Phil Booth may return, which would put the Wildcats at full strength for the first time this season.

Tue 2/20

The Tar Heels are playing their best basketball of the year at this point, winning their last five and covering the point spread as well. Pittsburgh transfer Cameron Johnson has played 34-plus minutes in three of the last four games. Johnson missed the first 11 games of the season with his new team and has taken time to fit into the Tar Heel continuity and gameplan. It's happening now, which has been a big reason for the five game winning streak. Syracuse is just 6-9 ATS at home and 6-8 ATS in conference games.
