The Giants are -150 favorites over the Padres with an over/under run total set at 6.5. The San Francisco Giants continue to lead the NL West but their lead shrunk a little on Monday as they fell to the Padres. Brandon Hicks hit a home run, Michael Morse had three hits, and Buster Posey had two hits as the Giants scored four runs on nine hits. Starting pitcher Madison Bumgarner allowed seven hits and five runs while striking out five over 5.0 innings to take the loss and fall to 2-3 on the season.

Denver Nuggets vs. Brooklyn Nets

The Denver Nuggets hope to arrest a three-game slide tonight when they take on the Brooklyn Nets. The Nets are -1 point favorites over the Nuggets with an over/under point total set at 195. The Nets have lost three of their last five and are coming off their biggest loss of the season, a 124-80 beatdown at the hands of the Trailblazers. In a completely listless performance, the Nets came out with no energy and simply got blown off the court, falling behind by 58-34 heading into halftime before allowing another 42 points in the fourth quarter. Perhaps the Nets are fatigued because that was their fifth game in their seven-game road trip, but they did get a couple nights of rest after their win against the Lakers on Sunday so they can’t use that excuse. Meanwhile, the Nuggets have lost eight of their last nine games and are also Read More

Rutgers Scarlet Knights vs. Villanova Wildcats

The Rutgers Scarlet Knights and the Villanova Wildcats tangle Monday night from Philadelphia. The Wildcats are -10 point favorites over the Scarlet Knights with an over/under point total set at 130.5. Rutgers fell to 4-9 in big east play this past weekend as they became only DePaul’s second conference win as the Blue Demons took them down at home 75-69. This contest was deadlocked for most of the game before DePaul pulled away late. The Scarlet Knights were hurt even further when leading scorer Eli Carter went down with what has been ruled a broken fibula that will sideline him for the rest of the season. Myles Mack had 28 points for Rutgers but was pretty much all alone as the Scarlet Knights supporting cast was non-existent. Without Carter the rest of the way, it will be hard to put much faith in the Scarlet Knights down the stretch. Villanova Read More

The Crimson Tide are -8 point favorites over the Bulldogs with an over/under point total set 51. The Georgia Bulldogs have navigated their way through their regular season schedule with just one loss but the knock on Mark Richt’s team will be that they didn’t face the toughest teams in the SEC this year missing most of them on their schedule.
