Liberty Flames at No. 19 Texas A&M Aggies (-18.5, N/A)

The Aggies are going to have to deal with an unexpected speed bump early this season as they deal with being one of the Big 12’s favorites.

After Billy Kennedy was hired to man the bench back in May, he was forced to take a leave of absence to undergo treatment for Parkinson’s disease. Associate coach Glynn Cyprien will lead the club until Kennedy returns and has already addressed the hype surrounding the team.

"We addressed it on the first day for a total of about five minutes," Cyprien told reporters. "And I think these guys ... because they're a veteran team, understand it's not where you start but it's where you finish. And it hasn't come up again."

Junior Khris Middleton is one of three returning starters and 10 lettermen on the team and could be poised for even bigger things after averaging 14.4 points and 5.2 rebounds last season.

These Aggies will come out with a bang.

Pick: Aggies


Duquesne Dukes at No. 16 Arizona Wildcats (-9, 148.5)

The Arizona Wildcats may have some problems getting on track.

They lost Derrick Williams to the NBA when he went No. 2 overall to Minnesota and sophomore guard Lamont Jones transferred to Iona. The Wildcats struggled early in their first game of the year and headed into the half against Valparaiso with just a two-point lead.

They ended up rallying for a 73-64 victory, but couldn’t cover as 14.5-point favorites.

"We're not the 16th-ranked team in the country," Arizona coach Sean Miller told reporters. "Maybe at some point we can get to that spot, but we still have a ways to go. These early games give us the opportunity to learn."

We’ll take the coach at his word even though Duquesne is looking to replace its top two scorers from last season.

Pick: Dukes

Ice picks: Wednesday's best NHL bets
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

New York Rangers at Ottawa Senators (+110, 5.5)

The New York Rangers had to endure an epic road trip before playing their first home game at MSG, but they made their first home stand of the season count.

The Rangers went 4-1-1 at Madison Square Garden and have won their last four contests heading into Wednesday’s date in Ottawa.

"It's hard when you go on the road for that amount of time because sometimes there's a let-down feeling that we're home and it's going to be a lot easier,” backup goalie Martin Biron said after blanking Winnipeg 3-0 Sunday. “There was none of that. It was a lot of hard work that has paid off in the end and that has to keep going."

However, the injury bug is messing with the Blueshirts’ roster. Defenseman Marc Staal is still out with a concussion, Mike Rupp is sidelined with a knee injury and Wojtek Wolski just landed on the shelf with a sports hernia.

Still, the Rangers are showing a lot more life than they did earlier this season. They’re going to be a tough team to play against as long as they keep their staple players in the lineup.

Pick: Rangers


Philadelphia Flyers at Tampa Bay Lightning (-125, 5.5)

Philadelphia owns the league’s top offense, producing four goals per game while Tampa Bay sits fifth in the league averaging 3.1 goals per contest.

So if you’re a big fan of clogging the neutral zone and 1-0 final scores, this game probably isn’t for you.

Philadelphia is coming off 9-2 destruction of the Blue Jackets and has already scored at least seven goals in three different games this season.
"Things just seemed to be clicking out there," James van Riemsdyk told reporters. "I don't know, we were making good passes up and down the ice and making smart plays with the puck. When you do that, it makes the game look a lot easier out there."

The Lightning are just 3-9 on the road so they’ll be happy to get back home in front of their home fans. Seems like the over is the logical play in this one.

Pick: Over

Wednesday’s betting tips: Books react to Penn State scandal

Who’s hot

NCAAF: Miami (Ohio) has covered the number in four of the last five.

NCAAB: The over is 9-3 in Arizona’s last 12 overall.

NCAAB: Akron is 13-3 against the spread in its last 16.

NHL: The New York Rangers have won four straight.

Who’s not

NCAAF: The over is 1-7 in Temple’s last eight.

NCAAB: The Liberty Flames are riding a 1-6 slump against the spread.

NCAAB: Duquesne is 1-8 against the spread in its last nine overall.

NHL: Tampa Bay is 1-4 in its last five home games against Philadelphia.

Key stat

12.8 – The Temple Owls rank fourth nationally allowing only 12.8 points per game. However, they were lit up in a 35-31 loss to Ohio as a 4-point favorite in their last game.

Injury that shouldn’t be overlooked

Darren McFadden, Oakland Raiders – McFadden has been ruled out for the second straight game and will be on the sidelines when the Raiders clash with the San Diego Chargers Thursday. McFadden suffered a sprained right foot in the first quarter against Kansas City on Oct. 23 and sat out Sunday's home loss to Denver. Michael Bush will make his second straight start. He rushed for 96 yards on 19 carries and had a touchdown catch against the Broncos. McFadden has rushed for 614 yards and four touchdowns while averaging 5.4 yards per carry this season. Oakland and San Diego are in a three-way tie with Kansas CIty for first place in the AFC West with 4-4 records. The Raiders are set as 7-point underdogs at San Diego.

Game of the day

Miami (Ohio) at Temple (-13, 44)

Notable quotable

“The ability to spread ‘em out and run spread-option football...that’s not something I was able to come right in here and do because that’s not what was in place here. I wanted to take advantage of the best abilities I had at Temple when I got here, and right now we’re trying to gradually move it. Where we are is what I like--but ultimately what I like is doing what our team does best.” – Temple coach Steve Addazio on what he was looking for by naming former backup Chris Coyer his starting quarterback. Coyer played most of Temple’s 35-31 loss to Ohio last week and gets the call for Wednesday’s matchup with Miami (Ohio). The Owls are set as 13-point favorites at home.

Notes and tips

Penn State opened as a 3-point underdog for this weekend’s game against Nebraska before news of the sexual abuse scandal involving former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky. Now as speculation continues to grow that Joe Paterno has coached his last game, many books have taken the line off the board. As of Tuesday evening, a number of shops still had the line on the board, but had Penn State at +3.5. Penn State officials elected to cancel Paterno's weekly press conference Tuesday, but reports claimed he did speak with a gathering of people at his home later in the evening.

The pointspread for Wednesday’s Miami (Ohio)-Temple matchup is on the move. Temple opened around -12.5 at most books before dropping to as low as -11 earlier this week. However, that line is on its way back up at most shops and sat around -13 as of Tuesday evening. About 55 percent of *********** Consensus bettors are backing Temple.

The Philadelphia Flyers could get a major boost if captain Chris Pronger is able to return to the lineup Wednesday night against Tampa Bay. Pronger has been on the shelf since taking a high stick to the eye on Oct. 24. Pronger has participated in all aspects of Philadelphia’s practices over the past couple days but said he will likely wait until Wednesday’s morning skate to decide his status. Philadelphia is set at -105 at Tampa Bay.

Pronger, Flyers try to stop streaking Lightning

PHILADELPHIA FLYERS (8-4-2, 18 points)

at TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING (7-5-2, 16 points)


Puck drops: Wednesday, 7:30 p.m. EDT
Line: Tampa Bay -120, Philadelphia +100, Total: 6

Tampa Bay looks to win their third game in a row, and fifth consecutive victory on home ice, when it hosts Philadelphia in an inter-divisional matchup on Wednesday night.

The Flyers boast the league’s most prolific offense, averaging 4.0 goals per game, and it was certainly on display in their most recent victory—a 9-2 drubbing of the Blue Jackets on Saturday. So far, Philly has played superb hockey on the road, going 4-1 away from home. Expect Ilya Bryzgalov (6-4-1, 2.94 GAA, .893 SV Pct.) to make his first start against the Lightning as a member of the Flyers. Bryzgalov went 2-1-0 with a 2.00 GAA and .921 SV Pct. in three starts against Tampa while with Phoenix. Dwayne Roloson (4-3-1, 3.31 GAA, .899 SV Pct.) is off to a rough start, but has picked up wins in his past two appearances for the Bolts. Roloson shut out the Flyers and dropped another in a shootout in his only two starts against Philly—both on home ice—last year after joining the Lightning in January. With plenty of offensive star power on both rosters, expect a back-and-forth, high-scoring battle, but with Flyers captain Chris Pronger (1 G, 6 A) likely back in the lineup (eye injury), expect PHILADELPHIA to pick up the win and improve on its stellar road record.

This anti-Lightning FoxSheets trend also likes the Flyers to prevail:

TAMPA BAY is 64-104 ATS (38.1%, +211.5 Units) against poor starting goalies - saving <= 89.5% of shots against since 1996. The average score was TAMPA BAY 2.6, OPPONENT 3.3 - (Rating = 1*).

The FoxSheets also think the OVER will occur on Wednesday night.

PHILADELPHIA is 7-0 OVER (+7.1 Units) against poor defensive teams - allowing 2.85+ goals/game this season. The average score was PHILADELPHIA 4.4, OPPONENT 2.9 - (Rating = 2*).

The Flyers offense has had no trouble adjusting to life without departed scorers Jeff Carter and Mike Richards. Center Claude Giroux (9 G, 10 A) is on pace to compete for the Hart Trophy and young LW James van Riemsdyk (6 G, 6 A) is becoming a force for Philly. RW Jaromir Jagr—signed in the offseason after spending two seasons in Russia—is second on the team in points with six goals and nine assists. The defense—which ranks 23rd in the league allowing 3.1 goals per game—has suffered without the physicality of Pronger. Veterans Kimmo Timonen (10 A, +4 rating) and Matt Carle (3 G, 5 A, +4 rating) have contributed nicely on offense.

Tampa Bay—much like Philly—enjoys great offensive output despite a less-than-stellar defense, averaging 3.1 goals scored and allowed per game. Sniper Steven Stamkos (10 G, 5 A) leads all Lightning forwards in points, and linemate RW Martin St. Louis (3 G, 11 A) has been his consistent self. The lack of defensive depth might also be related to the inconsistent goaltending from Roloson and Mathieu Garon (3-2-1, 2.80 GAA, .911 SV Pct.). Surprisingly though, puck-moving defenseman Marc-Andre Bergeron (2 G, 13 A) is tied for the team lead in points with Stamkos.
