Former Vegas Bookmaker
Micah Roberts has worked in the Las Vegas sportsbook industry for 20-plus years, including a 13-year run as Station Casinos' book director. Armed with an elaborate network of sources, Roberts has unmatched info in multiple sports. He is arguably the nation's premier NASCAR betting expert: In his previous role as Vegas bookmaker, Roberts was the first to offer expanded NASCAR betting. Now he delivers uncanny NASCAR picks to SportsLine members. He nailed the first two races of 2020, picking Denny Hamlin (10-1) to win the Daytona 500 and Joey Logano (13-2) to take the Pennzoil 400. In the 2019 NASCAR season, those who wagered $100 on Roberts' predicted winner in each of the 40 races (a $4,000 investment) finished with a strong profit of $2,100. In addition, those who put down $50 on each of Roberts' top four choices (an $8,000 investment) were up a head-turning $3,400.

E. Illinois 66 @ Belmont 79 | 01/22 | 1:00 AM UTC

Belmont -12.5


ANALYSIS: Belmont’s rating has been rising every week and the Bruins still keep covering the number. They’re 14-1, 10-3-1 ATS while averaging an 81-68 score. They shoot 49 percent from the field. They also defend well, disciplined. They’re balanced, with five guys averaging double digits. Eastern Illinois has lost three straight and covered just once in its last 10.

Alabama 105 @ LSU 75 | 01/20 | 2:00 AM UTC

Alabama -1


ANALYSIS: No matter how great LSU is playing right now, I have to keep rolling with Alabama as it has won and covered seven straight. Can't quit now. The Crimson Tide lead the SEC at 6-0, but the Tigers are right behind them at 5-1. LSU is just 3-5 ATS in its last eight games. What it comes down to, for me, is just riding the streak regardless of any intangibles, such as how well LSU shoots (49 percent). Alabama is the play.

+1359 18-4 IN LAST 22 CBB ATS PICKS

Winthrop 72 @ Presbyterian 58 | 01/20 | 12:00 AM UTC

OVER 148.5


ANALYSIS: Winthrop is looking to win the Big South again and the Eagles have taken it up a notch this season by starting 13-0, which has equated to 8-5 ATS and 9-4 to the Over. They like to run and create chaos for their opponents and they are usually successful. Presbyterian has lost two straight and doesn’t offer much resistance defensively to anyone. But it has played Winthrop tough in the last four meetings playing at that fast pace. Just the Over here.

+1244 19-6 IN LAST 25 CBB PICKS

Va. Tech 64 @ Wake Forest 60 | 01/17 | 11:00 PM UTC

Va. Tech -6.5


ANALYSIS: When Wake Forest is an underdog of any amount, it loses. That’s been the case in all seven of its games. The Demon Deacons' three wins came against teams over which they were 20-point favorites, and one of the opponents wasn’t even a board team. Wake Forest lost five key players from last season, and between COVID-19 and a lack of time together, it is the worst team in the ACC, having lost four straight as an underdog. Virginia Tech has won six of its last seven and is coming off a win against Duke. The Hokies win by double digits.
