Severance Pays
Matt Severance is a well-connected writer and handicapper who has worked in the industry since 2005. After joining SportsLine, Matt quickly established himself as a top expert. He went 187-129 (plus $1,068) in the 2020-21 NHL season and 149-126-1 (plus $989) in the 2020-21 college basketball season. He believes in buying points in football to get off a push number like 3 or 7. He understands that oddsmakers don't do as much homework on lower-tier FBS games, creating betting opportunities. And he says homefield advantage is underrated in some markets and overrated in others. For Matt Severance media inquiries, contact SportsLine@CBSInteractive.com.

Memphis 118 @ L.A. Lakers 121 | 10/25 | 1:30 AM UTC

L.A. Lakers -196

WIN

ANALYSIS: I have zero interest on the spread here but the Grizzlies are playing the second of a back-to-back -- even if they didn't have to travel from LA (you don't think the Memphis players enjoyed the Los Angeles nightlife on Saturday?) -- and that's enough for me to back the Lakers. They are 0-2 with both losses at home so I'd guess it's almost desperation time for them even if AD and Dwight Howard have to brawl mid-game. I think Dwight was just irked he wasn't on the NBA's all-time 75 list. He probably should have been.

Indianapolis 30 @ San Francisco 18 | 10/25 | 12:20 AM UTC

San Francisco -175

LOSS

ANALYSIS: Definitely not giving 3.5 but also think the Niners win, so here we are on the moneyline. While Indy may be getting Pro Bowl guard Quenton Nelson back, the Colts have a lot of other injury issues. Yes, the Niners are without Pro Bowl left tackle Trent Williams but are pretty healthy otherwise coming out of the bye. With rain and wind, the weather definitely will be a factor. That favors the 49ers in my mind over the "indoor" Colts.
