Dave Mason of BetOnline advised of the following action coming in on Sunday's Conference Championship games.


"So far, our biggest liability by far on Sunday is the Lions' ML," Mason advised midweek, and that number hasn't changed much as of Saturday evening.

"84% of the early bettors and 72% of the early cash backing Detroit - currently +280."

As for the spread:

Chiefs at Ravens
60% BAL -4
57% BAL -210
62% O 44.5

Lions at 49ers
52% SF -7
71% DET +290 (Gulp)
60% O 51.5

Meanwhile, leaderboard sports handicappers at the G911 Sports Hub were nearly 90 percent in agreement on the Lions ability to cover the spread versus San Francisco.  We're thinking maybe a 49ers 6-point win.

Bucks Come Through Big in Key Weak Spot for Pelicans

New Orleans may have gotten Zion Williamson back Saturday night but the Pelicans were coming off a bad home loss the night before, then had to fly to Milwaukee to face a Bucks team that had beaten them eight of ten times.  To make matters worse, Milwaukee was coming off a bad home loss the night before.

Williamson we assumed would be a bit on the rusty side. Williamson finished Saturday’s loss to Milwaukee with 23 points, two rebounds, two assists and a steal across 29 minutes.  Not bad but his team still go crushed 141-117.

What Happened to the Celtics?

The LA Clippers continue to roll, even on the road and even against the top team in the league.

Los Angeles destroyed Boston at home Saturday night 115-96.  This was our play of the night by the way.

An angry Celtics face off against a Pelicans team that's been beaten up pretty badly over their last two games.  Boston is 7-3 in the last ten against New Orleans.  At home, the Celtics have beaten the Pelicans by at least 11 points in four of five games, the fifth of which was a win by New Orleans.
