2/14 VIP Picks – TURNING POINT

Really just a pathetic stretch but I don’t control the games, I just look at the facts and put us in the best position to profit each night. I guess I should have used the stats and went the other way last night:

Blazers ML – Since the Warriors are 6-1 on back to backs and they have already beat the Blazers twice this season by 38 total points, let’s take the Blazers tonight. The Blazers have one win against the Warriors this season and it was by 1 point – so convincing. The Warriors have been absolutely on fire going 9-1 over their last 10 but let’s go with the Blazers. For the record, just because all of the stats point to the Warriors, the Blazers will probably blow them out.

Does that make any sense to you? Me either.

Timberwolves ML – The Rockets have been playing great led by All-Star James Harden who has a 30+ point streak going that doesn’t look to end any time soon. The Rockets have won 4 of their last 5 and the TWolves have lost 4 of their last 5. There will be a rookie guarding James Harden tonight so with all of this, let’s go TWolves moneyline.

That doesn’t make much sense to me either.

As you all can probably sense, I’m a little bit pissed off with the cold streak we have going and what better way to release the negative energy than to mock myself and say we should have taken the two underdogs. Let’s not forget the NBA and NHL have major partnerships with MGM. Let’s. Not. Forget. We all need a winning night tonight because none of us need to be in a bad mood on Valentine’s Day…that would just be another loss for us. So let’s all collectively take the losses and put them in the past. Everyone of you have officially had your current membership extended 1 week at no charge. We need a turning point. I need all of you, each and every one of you to do something today. At 7 o’clock est – every one of you needs to let out a nice, “Let’s Fucking GOOOOOOOOOOO.” I don’t care if you’re at dinner with your girl, I don’t care if you’re at the gym, I don’t care if you’re walking into one of the games we are betting on tonight. I don’t care where you are or what you’re doing. Everyone needs to let out a nice LFG to put out some positive energy for us. We are all in this together, we are a team. Everyone be sure to do your part tonight and don’t let down any of your teammates. High percentage plays for a winning night.

NHL:

Jets (-160) – The Jets host the Avalanche tonight who continue to fall off of the cliff and they have now lost 8 games in a row. 5 of those 8 losses were by 2 or more goals. The Jets have won 2 games in a row and they have had good success against this Avalanche team this season. The Jets are 2-0 against the Avs this season and have won both games by 3 goals. The last time these two played on Jan 8, the Jets scored 7 goals. This one SHOULD be easy money tonight. 1.5x your normal bet.

Maple Leafs (+105) – How about those Leafs? Winners of 5 of their last 6 and they already beat this Golden Knights team 3-1 this season. The Leafs offense has really been out lately with 4, 4, 5, and 6 goals for recent results. The Golden Knights are coming off of a 5-2 loss to the Coyotes who aren’t even close to the team that the Leafs are. I will take the plus money on this matchup and I expect the Leafs to stay hot tonight.

Lightning (-190) – Drink the juice on this one. The Lightning own the best record in hockey and they are riding a 3 game winning streak into this one with two wins in a row by 3 goals. Their most recent win came against a very good Flames team who are at the top of the West (top 3). The Stars have only played 3 opponents in their last 5 games but they have won 3 of their last 5. The Bolts shut the Stars out the last time they played on Jan 15th. Fill up my fucking cup and I’ll chug the juice on this one. 2 units to win 1.

NBA:

Thunder (-200) – 5X JACKHAMMER – Thunder feel the Thunder! Moneyline over spread because we have had a tough start to the week. The Pelicans are going through quite a mess right now and this is one you can take advantage of. After losing 118-88 on Tuesday, Anthony Davis (who only scored 3 points) said, “We sucked. Nobody was interested in playing, is what it looked like.” The Thunder have won their last 4 games and they beat that same Magic team by 10 a week before the Magic beat the Pelicans by 30. The whole Anthony Davis situation demanding a trade and the Pelicans talking about shutting him down for the season has created a nast locker room situation. There is no “team” mentality in this locker room right now. This Thunder team is currently in 3rd place in the West and they have won 9 of their last 10. 2,000 jackhammers to win 1,000 on this one. NO WAY THE THUNDER LOSE THIS GAME TONIGHT.

Cross sport Parlay:

Thunder and Lightning Parlay (+127) – You see the breakdown above, the the Lightning should strike and the Thunder should BOOM tonight. Let’s take advantage of both of these matchups in a parlay tonight. 1 unit to win 1.27.
