CFB – (105) TOLEDO at (106) NORTH. ILLINOIS  8:00 ET  ESPN2

Northern Illinois can take another step towards winning the MAC West with a victory over Toledo, but like usual, it will not be easy. The Rockets are two games back but have won their last two contests and they are 6-2 ATS at NIU. Nevertheless, the Huskies have charged from -1.5 to -3.5 at home. The situation really favors Toledo who is 27-9 ATS after a win by 28 or more points, versus Northern Illinois who is 1-8 ATS after a playing a game where 60 total points or more were scored.

Betting Trend – 57% backing Northern Illinois

NBA – (501) DETROIT at (502) ORLANDO  7:05 ET  FSD, FSFL

This appears to be a hunch bettors special. Detroit has lost five in a row and is 3-6 ATS on the season. Yet, the Pistons have gone from -1 to -3 point favorites at Orlando. The Magic had lost six or seven, but have won their past two and is 4-0 SU and ATS against Detroit at home recently. The Pistons have a better roster, but they are 6-19 ATS on the road when the line is +3 to -3 the last three seasons.

Betting Trend – 66% backing Detroit

CFB – (121) CLEMSON at (122) BOSTON COLL.  8:00 ET  ABC

Clemson is on a major role and has outscored their last four opponents by an head-shaking 240-36. Little wonder why football bettors pushed them from -16 to -20 at Boston College. However, this is not at bad B.C. bunch who is 7-2 SU and ATS and they are 11-1 ATS against fellow ACC members since last year.

Betting Trend – 83% backing Clemson

Doug’s VPID Take – Coming Friday

CFB – (125) KENTUCKY at (126) TENNESSEE  3:30 ET  SECN

Kentucky was not in Georgia’s class but at 7-2, if the Wildcats win out, they should be invited to a New Year’s Day bowl. Kentucky will be favored in each remaining contest and in their SEC finale, they have been elevated from -3 to -6 at Tennessee. However, this is November and what is supposed to happen and what does happen can be two very different things, ask Florida about that after last week. Tennessee has won 19 in a row at home over the Wildcats and as far back as I check, it has been longer than that since the Vols have been home underdogs in the matchup.

Betting Trend – 89% backing Kentucky

Doug’s VPID Take – Coming Friday

CFB – (131) TROY at (132) GEOR. SOUTHERN  1:00 ET  ESPN+

Troy is in first place in the SBC East, but the schedule picks up with two road games this month against their closest competitors. It starts at Georgia Southern who opened as -2 point home favorite but they have been flipped to a one-point underdog. The Eagles beat Appalachian State but could not handle prosperity and suffered their first conference loss at UL-Monroe. The winner with the most rushing yards is 4-0 ATS in this confrontation.

Betting Trend – 79% backing Troy

Doug’s VPID Take – Coming Friday

CFB – (151) OKLAHOMA STATE at (152) OKLAHOMA  3:30 ET  ABC

The Bedlam Battle has Oklahoma a climbing favorite, up three points to -20. The Sooners will score on Oklahoma State and give up points as the total of 77 proves. This Big 12 skirmish will come down to who makes stops and that is who will cover the number. The Sooners are 10-2 ATS in Norman when the total is 63 or higher.

Betting Trend – 66% backing Oklahoma

Doug’s VPID Take – Coming Friday


It seems a certainty Western Kentucky coach Mike Sanford will be asked to leave after this season with his team 1-8. Hilltoppers’ teams have always scored points but this crew is at 18.7 PPG. Football bettors are confident the Western KY will not improve their record at Florida Atlantic and bumped them up from +16 to +20. The Hilltoppers are 0-8 ATS after exactly two C-USA clashes.

Betting Trend – 94% backing Florida Atlantic

Doug’s VPID Take – Coming Friday


Public Consensus Record (2018) – 51% to 79% – 230-227-13 ATS

Public Consensus Record (2018) – 80% or Higher – 97-86-2 ATS

Line Movement Direction Record (2018) – 335-331-15 ATS
