FRANK’S CUTTING ROOM FLOOR FOR THURSDAY, 12/1:

My “Cutting Room Floor” plays are the situations I considered the closest to being worthy of investment but did not make the “final cut” for my official plays today for subscribers. The last play I cut for Thursday is with Arizona State plus the points versus Colorado. Arizona State (6-1) has won four straight games after their 76-54 win against Alcorn State as a 17-point favorite on Sunday. The Sun Devils are 23-8-1 ATS in their last 32 games after a win by 20 or more points. They have also covered the point spread in 5 straight games against winning teams. Colorado (4-3) comes off a 65-62 win against Yale as a 9-point favorite on Sunday. The Buffaloes have failed to cover the point spread in 4 straight games after a straight-up win. They are just 6-13-2 ATS in their last 21 games at home. Take Arizona State plus the points. Best of luck — Frank.

Frank Sawyer’s Hollywood Sports is on a 66 of 100 (66%) NFL run after DELIVERING their 25* NFL MNF Game of the Month with Pittsburgh’s UPSET WIN on Monday! Frank’s 32 of 44 (73%) NFL clip with his highest-rated 25* plays improves his 39 of 55 (71%) NFL 25* mark!

Thursday night Double Perfect NFL Totals System headlines along with a RARE 6* NHL Perfect System side. In NCAAB Action we have 4 Powerful Sides 2 of which are top plays. NCAAB Comp play below.

The Thursday Comp play is on Radford at 7pm eastern. Radford fits a solid early season system we use that has a high percentage. Radford has won their 2 home games thus far while North Carolina Central is 0-3 on the road. Both teams look pretty even on Offense. However. Radford has a much better defense, top 50 overall and we look for them to get the win s cover here tonight. Rob V- Golden Contender Sports

NCAA-B | Arizona vs Utah
Play on: Arizona -6½ -110 at Mirage
Game Analysis

I find this line short as my power ratings have Arizona being a double-digit favorite so I'm laying the points.

You can't help but be impressed with the Wildcats. They are averaging 97.5 points - best in the country - and also rank No. 1 in shooting percentage from the floor at 60.3 percent. The Wildcats won the Maui Invitational beating Cincinnati, San Diego State and Creighton. San Diego State and Creighton were ranked among the top 17 teams.

Utah hasn't been nearly as impressive. The Utes are 5-2 with a bad home loss to Sam Houston State and a neutral-floor defeat to Mississippi State.

The Utes will try to frustrate the Wildcats with their snail's pace. But Arizona can beat the Utes both inside and outside. I don't see Utah as a come-from-behind team so no back-door cover.

Arizona rolled past Utah in both meetings last season winning, 97-77, on the road and 82-64 at home.

NCAA-B | Youngstown State vs Northern Kentucky
Play on: Youngstown State -1 -110 at linepros
Game Analysis

Jack's Free Pick Thursday: Youngstown State -1

The Youngstown State Penguins are off to a 5-2 SU & 5-1 ATS start this season.  They did have a bad loss at Navy, but only lost by 7 at Notre Dame as double-digit dogs.  I like this team as they are an offensive juggernaut scoring 83.9 points per game on 49.9% shooting, including 38% from 3-point range and 73.9% from the FT line.

Northern Kentucky is down this season.  The Norse are 3-4 SU & 1-5 ATS this season with two of their wins coming against UC-Clermont and Tennessee Tech by 8 as a double-digit favorite.  They did upset Cincinnati at home, but they also lost at home to Kent State by 22, to Florida Gulf Coast by 21, to Toledo by 13 and to UT-Arlington by 4.  They haven't played a true road game yet this season despite the awful start.

I don't see how the Norse are going to keep up offensively in this one.  They average just 68.7 points per game, shoot 43.2% from the field, 33.1% from 3-point range and only 63.2% from the FT line.  The Norse have only been slightly better defensively than the Penguins, too.

The Penguins are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games overall.  Northern Kentucky is 1-11 ATS in its last 12 games following a non-conference game.  The Norse are 3-12 ATS in their last 15 games after failing to cover the spread in two consecutive games.  Bet Youngstown State Thursday.

Game Analysis

1* NCAAB - Creighton/Texas FREE Pick on Texas -6.5

Thursday's Free NCAAB Pick is on the Texas Longhorns as a 6.5-point home favorite against the Creighton Bluejays. This isn't so much that I think Creighton isn't any good. It's more I just think this Texas team is that good. I know the schedule hasn't been overly challenging, but the one decent team they played they destroyed. Beating Gonzaga 93-74. Not only is their offense lethal, but their defense is one of the best in the country. There's no easy shots to be had. I just think it's going to be tough for any team to keep it within single digits against them on their home floor. Bet Texas -6.5!

Dave's Thursday Free Play:

1* on UCLA -6

The Key: The UCLA Bruins have 5 wins by 21 or more points and single-digit losses to Illinois and Baylor.  Look for another blowout win here when the Bruins take a step down in class and face a Stanford team that is just 3-4 SU & 2-5 ATS this year.  The 3 wins have come against Pacific, Cal Poly and Florida State, and it appears FSU is one of the worst Power 5 teams in the country alongside Louisville.  The Cardinal have losses to Wisconsin by 10, Memphis by 8 and Ole Miss by 4 on neutrals plus a 12-point home loss to San Diego State.  And you could make the case that UCLA will be the best team they have faced yet.  UCLA won by 23 at home and by 9 on the road in their 2 matchups with Stanford last year.  Take UCLA.

Dave is a former #1 Ranked Overall Capper (2012) on the site! He has put together a 5171-4590 Overall Run that has his $1,000/game investors up $104,320! He was also the #2 Ranked Overall Capper in 2020 while in the midst of a HUGE 1513-1346 All Sports Run since December 28th, 2019!

NCAA-B | Seton Hall vs Kansas
Play on: Kansas -8½ -110 at Caesars
Game Analysis

This is a play on the KANSAS JAYHAWKS for our Thursday Free Play. It has been a season of early losses for the bluebloods of college basketball with the preseason top ten getting ravaged with defeats and that includes a loss by Kansas against Tennessee at the Maui Invitational but it was one of the late losses of the bunch and the Jayhawks dropped down to No. 9 in the nation and the win over Duke is the lone real quality victory. The Jayhawks have been hurt by the pollsters since they have yet to see Cam Martin take the floor so they will be a very dangerous team come conference season. Still, this is a team that should overmatch Seton Hall and they remain home where they are 4-0 and have won 11 straight games going back to last season. Jalen Wilson has picked up the slack as he is averaging 22.8 ppg which is tops in the conference and third nationally while super freshman Gradey Dick has put up 15.4 ppg which leads all freshmen in the Big 12. Seton Hall is 4-3 to open the season as it started 3-1 with the three victories coming against Monmouth, St. Peter's and Wagner where it was favored by at least 16 points in all of those games. The Pirates finished fourth at the ESPN Events Invitational last week in Orlando, defeating Memphis before falling to Oklahoma and Siena. The Pirates worked the transfer portal well and nabbed a pair of power five players with Clemson transfer Al-Amir Dawes and Louisville transfer Dre Davis and both have already made their presence felt as they are the team leaders in scoring with 11.9 and 11.4 ppg respectively but Davis has missed the last two games and he is questionable again tonight with a knee injury. This is the first true road game for Seton Hall and this is a tough spot as Kansas is overdue for a dominating performance against a quality team. Play (770) Kansas Jayhawks

Game Analysis

Thursday's Free NCAAB Pick: Arizona/Utah OVER 154.5

I'll take my chances with the OVER 154.5 in Thursday's Pac-12 matchup between Arizona and Utah. I think the total here comes down to whether or not Utah can slow down this Wildcats offense. I don't think they will, which is why I think we are going to see at least 160 points in this game. 

Arizona has one of the best offenses in the country. They are No. 1 in EFG% offense, No. 1 in pace and No. 3 in offensive adjusted efficiency. It's not just come against a cupcake schedule. They have played Cincinnati, San Diego St and Creighton. The Aztecs defense ranks 15th in Adj. Def. Eff. and they scored 87 on them. Creighton is 38th and they had 81 points on them. Utah ranks 56th in AdjDE. 

The only real weakness of this Wildcats offense is they turn the ball over. Ranking No. 293 in offensive TO%. Utah's defense ranks 319th in defensive TO%. I think 85 points or more is likely with the pace they play at. Utah really has no choice but to play at their pace and this is a decent Utah offense going up against a slightly above average Arizona defense. I think they easily hit 70, especially playing at home. That right there gives us 155. Give me the OVER 154.5!
