I’m snowed in up here in Mass so I don’t have anything to do today but feed you guys winners! Let’s take a look at what we got!
First tournament of the season for PGA! I have to admit, I did not post nearly as many golf bets as I wanted to last season. I’m actually a pretty big golf fan and I am going to make it a point to post a lot more golf plays this season. Let’s get the season started right:
Sentry Tournament of Champions – winner (pre-tourny) Dustin Johnson (+450) – He’s going to have a big year and he’s going to get the season started right this weekend.
1st round matchups – play individually, not a parlay:
John Rahm over Marc Leishman
Brooks Koepka over Kevin Kisner
Dustin Johnson over Xander Schauffele
Rockets (+5) 5x basketballs one for each point – The Rockets will host the Warriors tonight and the Rockets won the first meeting between these two teams 122-121 in the first game of the season IN Golden State’s building. I think that this game will be another high scoring and tight game, should be a fun game to watch. I like the Rockets to keep it close and have a chance to win this one with the final shot at home!
Thunder (-1.5) 5x basketballs – The Clippers have actually won four games in a row but the opponents have been mediocre/terrible teams (Kings, Lakers, Hornets, Grizzlies). The Thunder have won 3 out of their last five and that included wins against the Rockets and Raptors plus that game they got fixed out of against the Bucks. The Thunder beat the Clippers 120-111 the first time they played this season. This spread is seeming a bit low for me but I don’t see any significant injuries. Maybe wait until later in the day to lock this one in to make sure Russ, Melo, and PG are all playing. Thunder, feel the thunder.
A couple good hockey matchups with good value tonight:
Lightning ML 5x hockey sticks – Gotta have the lightning to go with the Thunder tonight for our picks, right? Lightning are playing a team with just about half the points as them in the Canadiens. The moneyline isn’t too bad at (-165) and I think that’s great value for this matchup.
Predators ML 5x hockey sticks - #BetAgainstTheCoyotes – why isn’t this trending on twitter yet!? Make it happen. The Preds have more than double the points than the Coyotes and the moneyline is only at (-160) – so make that motherfucker hammertime.
Devils ML – I’ve been talking about the value in the first two NHL picks for today but the Devils are sitting pretty at (+145) on the moneyline right now. They will be taking on the Stars in Dallas in a game in which they match up pretty well with them. The Devils beat the Stars 5-2 last time they played on December 15th. Really good value for the Devils who Vegas is considering an “underdog” tonight.
