Weekend Full of Meaningful Matchups

Elldee Logo Original     The seasons are winding down on the gridiron and heating up on the courts.  This weekend is ready to provide some excitement on the turf and the hardwood, though, as we have Top-10 matchups in NCAA Football, heavyweights swinging in the NFL, early-season tourneys in NCAA Basketball, and teams jockeying for position in the NBA!

Starting things off on Friday night are College Basketball tournament action and big-time NBA matchups.  These are highlighted by the #1 Duke Blue Devils vs. the Georgetown Hoyas in the 2K Empire Classic in the world-famous Madison Square Garden.  Duke is favored by 13 and should easily cover that number in this early season test.  On the pro side of the sport, the Los Angeles Lakers are heading to Oklahoma City to put their 12-2 record on the line against the Thunder.  LA has the better record but OKC has home court advantage and 4.5-points on their side.  Look for OKC to stay within the spread and possibly even steal this one outright.

Saturday is the day where College Football is King!  The season is almost over and every game is important.  Any false moves now and there is no time for recovery in the playoff discussion.  There are no more impactful games this weekend in any sport than when the Penn State Nittany Lions travel to the Horseshoe to face THE Ohio State.  Although, not a de-facto playoff game, it may as well be as the loser will not make the 4-team tournament.  In a matchup of Top-10 teams, one would expect a tight game but that’s not the way Vegas sees it.  OSU is an 18-pt favorite in this one.  James Franklin is too good of a coach with too good of a team to get beaten that soundly.  Penn State and the points is what the Elldee Sports Formula is calling for.

Finally, the NFL is providing a game or two worth watching on Sunday to finish out the weekend.  There are only a few games with national appeal this weekend for the professional football league but boy are they whoppers!  In the early games, the cream of the crop has to be the Seattle Seahawks heading East to face the Philadelphia Eagles.  The numbers in the formula say the ‘Hawks by 8 but my mind says be wary of a team traveling from the West Coast for an early game.  In the afternoon slate, the Dallas Cowboys head to Foxboro to face the New England Patriots in what should be the game of the week.  The showcase should be the offense of Dallas vs the defense of NE in this mega-matchup.  The cold weather and travel is probably too much to overcome for the Cowboys with a prediction of a close 1-pt loss.

There are plenty of great options to choose from this weekend.  Sit down, grab a bag of popcorn and stay entertained!  Until next time, good luck!

Back In A Limited Capacity

On top of the NFL numbers provided, the team at Elldee Sports has been able to update the numbers to run the first NBA games of the season under the NBA tab on the front page.  Take a look and enjoy.  Until next time, good luck!

Long Break Almost Over

Elldee Sports has been on an extended hiatus as we have focused on fine-tuning the Elldee Sports Prediction Formula.  I finally feel comfortable and confidant enough to press ahead with plans.  Prior to next football season I will have a fully functioning membership site which will cover all American Football and Basketball matchups, collegiate and professional.  Instead of exact scores, I will be posting percentages of the chance of a team to cover, as well as the chances of an over or under.  This is all for entertainment and validation purposes, of course.  I am hoping to provide a forum for discussion and opinions, as well as a mathematical formula to help validate your personal thoughts on winners of each game.  Additionally, I will be covering all games now, not only games between Power 5 teams.  I am excited to move forward and I hope you will join me.

Back To the Prediction Game

After two days of NBA games that didn’t carry much value against the spread or total, we have three slated for Tuesday night.  With only four games on the schedule, that is pretty good.  Additionally, all three picks have a Elldee Sports Formula win percentage near 80%.  Game on!

New York @ Indiana Over 212

Milwaukee @ New Orleans Under 237.5

LA Lakers (-1) @ Chicago

We, here at Elldee Sports are putting our trust in the formula.  I, personally, do not like the Milwaukee-NO Under call and the Lakers have been a train wreck as of late.  We will see how the numbers play out, though.  Good luck!

NBA Yearly Total 29-25

Six-Game Saturday Looks to Entertain the Masses

The NBA has lined up a set of six games that should all entertain.  Of the six matchups, there is only one that holds real value against the spread and total.  It also happens to be the final game of the night!

Phoenix @ Portland (-12.5) Over 228.5

Is the Elldee Sports formula slipping or have the oddsmakers been caught with their pants down?  The spread AND total in the same game both being off?  I think so.  Relax this weekend and enjoy an exciting day of basketball.  Good luck.

The NBA Barrels Toward the Weekend With Multiple Games on Tap

Elldee Sports is back after there were no games that held any value, when looking at spreads or totals, on Thursday.  That is not the case on Friday as there are quite a few games on the docket, many of which hold significant value in the odds department.  Here is what the Elldee Sports formula is predicting.

Utah @ Memphis Over 209.5

Cleveland @ Miami Over 213

Toronto @ New Orleans (+6.5)

Detroit @ Chicago Over 218.5

The formula also calls for Philadelphia (+6.5) @ Houston but without Embiid, the numbers and averages will not play out consistently so I do not want to call it as a favorite.  Outside of that, the other four games look fairly solid percentage wise and should play out as forecasted!  Good luck.

NBA Yearly Total 27-22
