11/17 VIP Picks 7-1

NFL:

1:00 EST

Saints (-5.5) - The Saints had quite The let down game last week against the Falcons but I expect them to bounce back today and absolutely shred this Bucs defense that has allowed 31 points per game. The Bucs have a weak secondary and they have allowed opposing QBs to throw for an average of 316 yards per game. The Saints should be scoring early and often in this one. The Saints already beat the Bucs 31-24 this season and that was without Drew Brees. I expect a bigger win today. WHO DAT!?


1:00 EST

Jets (+110) - It feels a bit awkward to be hyping up the 2-7 Jets today but...THEY ARE PLAYING THE 1-8 REDSKINS. Dwayne Haskins will make the start for the Redskins and he has struggled when he’s gotten playing time this year throwing 0 touchdowns and 4 interceptions while compiling a QB rating of 42.2. The Skins have not showed much life this season and 7 of their 8 losses have come by a touchdown or more. The Jets have actually been in games and got their 2 wins with a healthy Sam Darnold. Both teams in this matchup are bad but I like the Jets today. C’mon now, all together - “J E T S JETS JETS JETS! LFG!!


4:25 EST

Patriots (-4.5) - The Pats first loss of the season couldn’t have come at a better time, going into the BYE week. Tom Brady has a 13-4 record coming off of a BYE week and he says he still isn’t over that loss to the Eagles in the Super Bowl two years ago. The Pats also have a 51-13 record following a loss since 2001 so expect them to be fully prepared for a bounce back today. The Eagles have some good wins this season - Packers and Bills but they also have some bad losses - Vikings and Cowboys. The Eagles are 4-1 at home this season but the combined record for the teams they have played at home is 10-25. This Patriots defense will be the biggest challenge this Eagles team has seen all season. I also think the BYE week has given the Pats offense some time to work together to get in sync which they haven’t seemed to do yet this season. Give me the Pats to bounce back with a statement win today and all Belichick will say after the game is, “We are on to Dallas.” GO PATS!

Teaser selections:


Play in groups of 2 to be most profitable.

49ers (-3.5)

Vikings (-4)

Bills (-0.5)

Cowboys (-1.5)


Parlay:

It’s a double dip which can always be dangerous BUT I LOVE THIS MONEYLINE PARLAY!

1:00 EST

Saints ML / Pats ML (+109) - JACKHAMMER - you can see the breakdowns in the picks above as we are playing both of these teams to cover the spread but parlaying them to win straight up pays +109 and that seems like stealing money.


NBA:

3:30 EST

Celtics (-150) - The Celtics have the best record in the league and they are going for their 11th straight win after dropping the first game of the season. So the Cs are 10-0 in their last 10 and they take on the Kings who are 4-6 in their last 10. However, the Kings played the Lakers strong right to the buzzer on Friday night. The Kings have been playing better as of late but they are still allowing more points per game than they are scoring on average for the season 109 to 104 which is not a great recipe in any sport. Give me the Celts to stay red hot. C’SSSSSS!!! ☘️
