4/12 VIP Picks


6-3 last night and the JACKHAMMER plays got off to a fantastic fucking start! Like I said, we won’t have these opportunities every day but when I see a matchup I love, I’ll add the JACKHAMMER tag to it and when you see that, YOU HAMMER IT! We started the NHL playoffs 2-0 as expected and we have a bigger slate of games tonight. To the picks!

NHL:

Capitals / Blue Jackets OVER (5.5) 🏒🏒🏒🏒🏒 - it’s tough to pick a side in this one as the Caps are favored but the Blue Jackets had a recent stretch in March where they won 10 straight. The Jackets also beat the Caps 5-1 right before that stretch. Let’s see how these two match up in game one and react in game 2. The OVER is the play in this one and the (5.5) makes it even more appealing. 3 of the 4 meetings between these two teams went over (5.5) this season. The Caps have averaged 3.4 goals per game in their last 10 and the Blue Jackets have averaged 4.2 goals per game in their last 10. 3 of the 5 games for each teams first round playoff series went OVER (5.5) last year. I love this game to be a 4-3 or 5-4 final in overtime but I’m not comfortable picking a winner in game one. The OVER will be our winner.

Bruins ML 🏒🏒🏒🏒🏒 - A teams health plays a huge part in how far you are able to go in the playoffs and the Bruins are getting healthy at the right time. Bruins will go into tonight at almost full strength with just Riley Nash still out. This bruins team has tons of playoff experience and is ready to make a deep run into the playoffs. Oh yeah and like Winnipeg last night, The Garden will be ROCKING tonight. 🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝

Predators / Penguins ML parlay (-103) JACKHAMER 🔨🔨🔨🔨🔨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨 - not often do we play multiple day parlays but with an opportunity like this, with these odds, why the fuck not!? The Predators are 4-0 against the Avs this season and they won three of those games by 2 goals or more. The Penguins are now 5-0 against the Flyers this season after last nights 7-0 blowout. You’ll need 24 hours of patience for this one to play out but it’ll be worth the wait!


MLB:

Cardinals (Wacha) (-142) ⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️ - when I looked at the games earlier I wasn’t that interested in this one because the Reds had a .279 avg against Wacha. BUT THEN it was announced that Votto would be out tonight. I re ran the numbers and the Reds starting lineup only has a .239 avg in 88 at bats against Wacha. I like the sounds of that! The Cards lineup will be taking on Sal Romano who they have 1 combined at bat against ever (Ozuna is 0-1 with a K). Romano comes into this one with a 5.73 ERA. I like the Cardinals to get this win.

Twins (Berrios) (-180) ⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️ - Berrios has held the White Sox lineup to a .132 avg in 68 at bats with 29 strikeouts (43%). The sample size is smaller for the Twins against Giolito but their bats are hot despite the cold weather in Minnesota. They just scored 9 runs yesterday in a win against the defending World Series Champs. They took 2 out of 3 against them. Berrios could very well shutout the White Sox offense who only scored 2 against the Rays bullpen yesterday. I’m liking the Twins tonight.
