1/14 VIP Picks


Not a great day on the picks yesterday, the Falcons had their chances but they couldn’t get it done for us. Still a winning day overall but obviously the big money was put on the football games yesterday. I had more faith in Matt Ryan than I should have. As for today, here are the break downs and picks:

NFL:

Jaguars @ Steelers (-7.5) – A LOT of people thinking that the Jags are going to go into Pittsburg today and do what they did in week 5 when they won 30-9 and picked off Big Ben 5 times. Sorry – not going to happen. The league NEEDS the Steelers Patriots rematch and the Steelers will win this game. Hope you jumped on the Patriots/Steelers moneyline parlay. How bad did Bortles look last week? You could see the nerves in his throws, he wasn’t throwing the ball, he was flicking it. A 10-3 win over the Bills in a home playoff game….solid performance Jacksonville, thanks for coming to the party. Steelers are on a mission for revenge and we will talk about that game when we get there next week but today – Steelers roll.

Picks:

Steelers teased (-1.5)

Steelers spread (-7.5)

Can’t trust Bortles to take the over even though it’s pathetically low.

Props tweeted as we get closer to game time.

Saints @ Vikings (-5) – “The Vikings are going to have a home game in the Superbowl.” I love how the media likes to look REALLY far ahead into the future. The Vikings have a really really good defense but they have had a few games where the offense doesn’t show up. I am looking at this game as a potential NO CALL NO SHOW for the Vikings offense. Case Keenum going into his first playoff game against Drew Brees and the Saints offense. The Saints have had a good balance offense with the one two punch at running back and then they also have one of the best Quarterbacks in the league, who has won in the post season before. I feel like a lot of people overlook QB experience in the playoffs, I don’t. I think the Saints will be able to keep the balanced offense working against the Vikings #2 pass defense and #2 run defense. The Saints defense came together nicely this season and I think they will show up today. I’m taking the Saints to win this game.

Picks:

Saints teased (+11)

Saints MONEY fucking LINE (+185)

Over teased (40.5)

NHL:

Wild 5x hockey sticks – pretty heavy moneyline here but for good reason. The Wild will be hosting the Canucks who are 1-3-1 in their last 5 while the Wild are 3-1-1 in their last five. The Canucks beat the Wild 1-0 in their only match up earlier this season but I’m expecting the Wild to get revenge tonight.

Golf:

Spieth over Dufner 5x golf clubs
