5/14 VIP Picks


This is the best day of my life. The biggest hurdle for the legalization of sports betting was eliminated this morning when the Supreme Court lifted the federal ban. Each state now has the chance to decide if they want to allow it or not, but why wouldn’t they? This is fucking huge guys! We are getting closer and closer depending on where you live. Jersey will be up and running in the next couple of weeks and I will personally be making the trip from Massachusetts to partake. I haven’t had time to process all my thoughts yet by I will be putting together my thoughts and pass them along to you guys. This is great stuff though! Legalization and accessibility for KofSports Nation means more winning and easier methods of collecting for us. All I have to say other than that is LETS FUCKING GO!

We go 4-0 on MLB including the Nats as underdogs on Sunday Night Baseball. NHL 0-2 and NBA 0-1. I should have been a homer and went with the Cssss yesterday. It was good to have a big bounce back day for baseball though! Let’s see what we have for tonight.

NBA:

Rockets (-1) - what a series this is going to be. Both teams have been equally as impressive in the playoffs and took their first two series pretty convincingly. I think that this series will go seven games no doubt. 54% of the public is going with the Warriors tonight but I’m going with the Rockets. The Rockets won 2 out of 3 against the Warriors in the regular season. If there’s a team that can dethrone the Warriors it’s the Rockets. I’m not picking a series winner in this one just yet but I do like the Rockets to take Game 1 at home tonight.

NHL:

Jets ML - we were on the Jets in game one and for good reason. They were the better team in all aspects of the game - more shots on goal, more hits, more take aways, and more faceoff wins. The Jets are the better team. From a Vegas perspective, 54% of the public bets are on the Golden Knights. It was 55% in Game 1. I’m fueling up the Jets again tonight and I think they take another early lead then sit back and play defense.

MLB: Travel day in the MLB so not a full slate to choose from.

Brewers (Guerra) (+126) - Brewers listed as dogs again and you need to take advantage of this one. They will be up against Patrick Corbin who they have a .362 avg & .621 slg% against in 58 at bats. Only 5 DBacks have faced Guerra and they haven’t had any success. He has been average this year but I think the Brewers come out swinging and get him the run support he needs tonight.

Red Sox / A’s Under (9) - Manaea & Porcello must start for action on this one. They both come in with low ERAs 2.11 & 2.79. A friendly reminder that Manaea no hit the Red Sox earlier this season. Porcello has held the A’s lineup to a .208 avg in 48 at bats. Manaea has held the Sox to a .217 in 69 at bats. I don’t see either of these teams turning things around tonight and I’m not sure how this over under is set at 9. It should be 7 or 7.5 and I’d still take the under.

Indians (Carrasco) (-240) - I don’t usually post single picks with lower odds than (-200), I just don’t do it. I’m doing it today for two reasons, one - it’s a small slate of games tonight and two - it’s a fucking lock. Carrasco has held this Tigers lineup to a .220 avg in 159 at bats. He only allowed 1 run in a complete game against this lineup back on April 11. He’s won his last six starts against this Tigers team dating back to last season. If you don’t mind laying some juice, break out the JACKHAMMER!
