1/31 VIP Picks

Brutal 0-3 last night, you can blame me or you can blame the Heat for losing to the Bulls, or the Lightning for not showing up until the 3rd, or the Sabres for just not scoring when we took the over. Today’s a new day. Traveling but wanted to get these two posted early. Check back in around 5 pm EST I may add a play or two once I land in Atlanta. #SuperBowlBound

NBA:

Bucks / Raptors Over (229.5) – These teams have played 3 times this season and they have gone over 229.5 in 2 of those games with total scores of 239 & 233. We need 115 a side in what should be a high scoring game and the Bucks have scored 115+ in 3 of their last 5 while the Raptors have scored 115+ in 4 of their last 5. Both teams come in averaging about 115 a game so if they hold true to their averages in this one and tonight plays out like 2 of the first 3 have, this ones going over.

Ncaab:

Purdue (-5.5) – Purdue comes off of a huge win against Michigan State and they have now jumped back into the Top 25 rankings. They come into this one at #17. Penn State is just 1-5 against Top 25 teams this season and all 5 of those losses were by 5+ points. It’s got to the point for Penn State where they can just kiss their fucking season good bye as they ride a 7 game losing streak into this one and are 0-9 against Big Ten opponents this season. Purdue has won 5 straight including double digit wins against #25 Indiana and #6 Michigan State. Look for the Boilermakers to stay cooking tonight.
