From Jonathan Von Tobel: By my count there have been 10 instances of home-and-home matchups in the NBA this season. The team that loses the first meeting is 8-2 SU / 7-3 ATS in the next matchup. If the team that loses the first meeting is home in the next they are 7-0 SU / 5-2 ATS. Here is what happened last night and when the next opportunity is.
Mitch and Pauly have been all over the first-period Over trend in the NHL. Brent asks Gaming Today editor and Vegas Golden Knights wiz Steve Carp about it.
