Happy Thursday! Wait, is it already Thursday? Is this week flying by as fast for you as it is for me? I mean, in the interests of full disclosure, I originally wrote “Happy Wednesday” when I wrote this and it was a good 75 words before realizing it was Thursday

So, yeah, there are my thoughts these days I think it’s the lack of football that messed up my brain a lot.We had such a tight schedule for the days of games being played for the past few months Of course we had Saturdays and Sundays full of games, but there were also Monday, Thursday and Friday evenings. The only nights of the week without soccer games were mostly Tuesday and Wednesday, and even those days there were some games of their own!

If there wasn’t a game that night, it could be assumed it was either a Tuesday or a Wednesday, and I think that happened to me today, so Thursday I’m pretty sure if it wasn’t Hopefully, my editor will change all Thursday references to the correct day. As he does this, you should check out today’s news whichever day it is

Lakers at Bucks, 7:30 p.m. | TV: TNT The Pick: Lakers 2 (-110): Most of the time my picks are based on analyzes and trends with the teams or players involved in a game. In other cases there is more of a “gut feeling” in the game. Although I have many trends that make this choice support, but in truth this one has a lot more gut instinct than anything else

The short story is that I don’t think the bucks “have it” Giannis Antetokounmpo is a great player and I think the Bucks are one of the best teams in the NBA but I think they are still missing something, when it comes to competing against other elite teams and that belief makes me push back against them at this point, while LeBron James is considered questionable for the game, it’s a nationally televised game against a possible title contender He’ll play If So I can win the Lakers – who I think they are the better team of – as an underdog at this point in an empty stadium, I take the Lakers as an underdog It doesn’t happen often, but when it happens it usually goes well for Lakers supporters, if you don’t believe me, just read the main trend below

Lakers at Bucks, 7:30 p.m. | TV: TNT The Pick: Under 2285 (-110) – It’s a limited list in the NBA today, and there’s not much on the college basketball docket that I like, so I’m double-diving here we had this week not good luck with Unders in this newsletter, but this is another point where I find the total is way higher than it should be. Yes, these are two of the best offenses in the NBA, but they are two of the most best defenses The Lakers lead the league in terms of defensive efficiency and I think their defensive strength is a big reason they will at least cover tonight so we might as well double up with the underworld as well, these teams have in the two Games last season played and neither finished with more than 216 points I don’t see today’s meeting being so different from last season

I agree that CBS Sports can send me the “CBS Sports HQ” newsletter

The choice: Juventus wins Serie A (400) – Serie A, Italy’s top division, has long been dominated by Juventus Juve have won nine titles in a row (referred to as Scudetto) and beat the SuperCoppa final on Wednesday Napoli won Towards the end of the season, Juventus are in sixth place, 10 points behind AC Milan at the top of the table and seven points behind Inter (current favorites to win the league) Juve have played one game less than either of the Milanese teams but even assuming they win this game it would still be seven points behind AC Milan, which has led a lot of people to write off the nine-time defending champions and I understand Why, at 400 years and over half the season left and Cristiano Ronaldo still wearing a Juventus jersey, there’s still a lot of value here when we look at things like expected goals and expected points based on these metrics Juventus have been a bit unlucky so far Both AC Milan and Inter have outperformed by the same standards, which means we should see the gap between these teams narrow in the second half of the season and Juve can not only catch their Milan rivals, they can also overtake and win a tenth Scudetto in a row
