Jeff Hochman burst onto the sports betting scene in the 1990s. Today he's one of the nation's most respected handicappers. "This is not a hobby of mine," Hochman says. "It's my business and I take it very seriously." The selective Hochman dominates multiple sports -- he went 14-6 (plus $740) in the 2021 college football season, for example -- but is perhaps best known for his NHL acumen. Over the past seven years, Hochman has hit over 60 percent of his NHL plays while returning healthy profits to those following him.

NFL | Jacksonville 38 @ L.A. Chargers 10 | 09/25 | 8:05 PM UTC

Jacksonville +7

WIN

ANALYSIS: The Chargers had six key players listed as limited or out of practice on Thursday, including elite starting center Corey Linsley. If he does play, he won't be 100% healthy. The Chargers could also be rusty from not having those players practice much this week. It's going to be hot (around 90). Despite the roof, the open sides of the stadium still make it vulnerable to extreme heat. I think the Jaguars will handle the hot weather better than the Chargers. LA doesn't have much of a home-field edge as many of its fans are in San Diego. Jacksonville hasn't won on the road in its past 17 games, but the Jags should be motivated. I think they keep this one close!

MLB | Atlanta 1 @ Philadelphia 9 | 09/23 | 11:05 PM UTC

Philadelphia -140

WIN

ANALYSIS: This is the same pitching matchup from Sept. 17 when the Braves defeated Aaron Nola. It's very difficult for a team to beat the same starting pitcher twice in less than a week. Very strong angle. Nola has one of the lowest hard-hit rates (31.9%) in all of baseball. I love his three-pitch mix that features a four-seam fastball, 12-to-6 curveball and changeup. Take the home team.

CFB | Arkansas 21 @ Texas A&M 23 | 09/24 | 11:00 PM UTC

Arkansas +2

PUSH

ANALYSIS: Texas A&M made a QB switch and escaped with a victory against Miami, despite getting out-gained by 128 yards. But that loss to Appalachian State is a red flag. The Razorbacks have a really good pass rush and now will face an inexperienced QB at a neutral site. We get the better QB (dual threat), offensive line and red-zone efficiency as an underdog. Arkansas has out-gained all three foes by 113 yards. The Razorbacks out-gained the Aggies 448-272 in their 20-10 win last season. Don't worry that Arkansas plays Alabama next week. In a similar spot last year, Arkansas defeated LSU before playing the Crimson Tide. Arkansas has a lot more experience playing on field turf. The Razorbacks are 8-5 straight-up, while Texas A&M is just 1-1 SU over the past three seasons. A larger sample size shows Texas A&M is just 1-5 ATS in its last six games on field turf. Take the underdog.
