Situational Slaughter - Rickenbach NHL Rotation #41 Saturday 10* Top Play Philadelphia Flyers Money Line (+) @ Minnesota Wild @ 7:05 ET - Both teams dealing with injuries and the Flyers injury situation certainly a little more significant than that of the Wild. However, I am still backing Philadelphia here because they played very well in their loss on Wednesday night and that was at Colorado. The Avalanche are one of the best teams in the league and the Flyers outshot them 33-27 in their own barn. Philadelphia entered that game having won 6 of 7 and they are a perfect 3-0 the last 3 times when off a loss. As for the Wild, they hung on for a 6-5 win over Edmonton but Minnesota truly hasn't been playing all that well of late. That was preceded by a game in which the Wild fell behind 2-0 and were fortunate to even earn a point. Minnesota has allowed an average of 4.5 goals per game their past 4 games. Conversely, the Flyers have allowed an average of only 2.1 goals per game their past 8 games! Grab the hungry road dog here off a loss and playing with a rest edge too (Wild were in action Thursday). 10* PHILADELPHIA

Contrarian Crusher - Rickenbach NHL Rotation #53 Saturday 10* Top Play OVER the total in Arizona Coyotes vs New Jersey Devils @ 8:05 ET - I lost with an over involving the Devils last night but the teams combined for 75 shots on goal and it was simply just "one of those nights" where the goalies stood tall. That said, I won't hesitate in coming right back with the over here. New Jersey used both Blackwood and Domingue in goal last night. Note that the latter of the two is struggling bad. He allowed 2 goals in limited action yesterday and this was after also allowing 11 goals in his two most recent appearances. So if the Devils turn to Domingue it could be a rough night. However, it will likely be Blackwood between the pipes and his last back to back spot saw him allow 4 goals in the 2nd game of the B2B. Those situations simply are not easy on goalies. As for the Coyotes, though generally known for lower-scoring games, they have been getting involved in plenty of high-scoring games of late. Arizona's last 3 games have all totaled 7 or more. Also, going further back, the Coyotes have seen 7 of their last 10 games total 6 or more. That said, I like the value with the low total of 5.5 posted on this game. Arizona, of course, knows the Devils are in a back to back and I expected the rested Coyotes to push hard here and try to quickly wear down New Jersey in this back-to-back spot. The result is a higher scoring game than many are expecting. 10* OVER the total in Arizona

Earliest Cash - Rickenbach NBA Rotation #549 Saturday 10* Top Play San Antonio Spurs (+) vs Phoenix Suns @ Mexico City, MX @ 5 ET - Both teams coming off disappointing losses but the Spurs, even with a weaker record, opened up as a 1.5 point favorite. The markets, as if telling the odds makers they don't know what their doing, have flipped the favorite here and now the Suns are a 2 point favorite. I like to play opposite of moves like this (in typical contrarian fashion) but only when the situation makes sense and, in this case, it certainly does. The last time these teams met in Mexico the Suns got the tight win behind a 39-point effort from Devin Booker. That is the same Booker whom is the leading scorer for the Suns this season. Also, the point guard is listed as questionable for this game with a wrist injury. While I do expect him to play I expect the wrist to continue to bother him. He had trouble with getting his shots to fall against Memphis and Booker did not even practice yesterday due to the wrist injury. Facing an angry Spurs defense won't help matters. They blew their game at home against Cleveland Thursday as they had a late lead and then went on to lose in OT. Unacceptable. While San Antonio certainly has fallen off this season they had entered that game off back to back wins. Look for them to respond big here as the Booker injury is not getting the respect it should. All signs are pointing to the best player on the court for Phoenix being much less than 100%. Fade the line move here. 10* SAN ANTONIO

Daytime Dominator - Rickenbach CBB Rotation #763 Saturday 10* Top Play Delaware Fightin' Blue Hens vs Villanova Wildcats @ 2 ET in the Never Forget Tribute Classic @ Newark, NJ - The Blue Hens entered this season needing to be a much better defensively and they've accomplished that goal. Granted they have faced a light schedule early this season but they had won 9 straight games before finally losing to George Washington last Saturday. Delaware is allowing just 63.3 points per game and holding opponents to 39.5% from the field. Granted, the Fightin' Blue Hens will most certainly have their hands full with a top notch opponent like Villanova but I foresee their solid defense helping to turn this game into a bit of a grinder. The Wildcats are on an 0-5 ATS run and none of those games were decided by more than a dozen points. Even the one decided by 12 points was a deceiving final score as the game was tight in the final minutes before Nova finally pulled away. The team chemistry has been fantastic for the Hens this season and they are excited about this opportunity and view it as a challenge to compete against top level competition. The way Delaware has been playing early this season and the fact they are coming off a loss, I look for a very strong effort from the big dog in this one. The Wildcats get the win but I see it coming by a single digit margin as they have bigger fish to fry. In fact the Cats next game will be against Kansas. This is a "win and move on" type game for Villanova and they are being overvalued by the betting markets here as this line has already moved up from a 13 to a 14.5 in early trading. 10* DELAWARE

Total Annihilation - Rickenbach CFB Rotation #303 Saturday 10* Top Play OVER the total in Navy Midshipmen vs Army Black Knights @ 3 ET in Philadelphia, PA @ Lincoln Financial Field - I am well aware of the history of unders in this series but feel this total has been pushed too low and that Army's defense is not as strong as this season while the Navy offense is quite strong. Of course this combination means Navy is going to score plenty and Army will have no choice to be aggressive in trying to answer. Now I know both of these teams mostly rely on the ground game but each team has thrown the ball a fair amount this season and it is enough to keep the defenses honest to say the least. They can't just solely focus on the option attack. Back to the low-scoring recent history in this series I know that each of the last two match-ups between these two teams totaled only 27 points. However, that was preceded by a stretch that saw 5 of 7 all total at least 38 points. The posted total on this one is a low as a 40 and we've seen a handful of games exceed that number in recent meetings. In other words, the under streak has to do with bigger totals too. I am aware of some wind possibly moving into the Philly area as this one goes on but the main emphasis is still the ground attack for each of these teams. Also, I like the fact that Army has scored an average of 17 points per game in the last 4 meetings between these teams and Navy is a double digit favorite here. 28-17 game gets us into the mid-40s here and I am expecting at least that as the under streak in this series (13 straight) finally comes to an end on Saturday afternoon. Yes the recent competition was weaker but Army does have a lot of confidence on offense coming into this game as they have scored an average of 47 points per game their past 3 games. Navy has scored at least 34 points in 9 of 11 games this season. History says under but current play says over and I am going contrarian here and playing the over and facing the move from mid-40s down to as low as 40 as of early Saturday morning. 10* OVER the total in Army/Navy game
