So all you need to do when you’re on a cold streak is release the bad energy and you will bounce back with an undefeated night. We nail the Seahawks who win big after the line and public money movement didn’t add up and we won our gift of Kings moneyline who go on to beat the Bulls by 19. For those of you who did sign in and took the Celtics/Lightning parlay before it was announced that Kyrie, Horford, Hayward, and Baynes wouldn’t be playing - you still won so 63 of you went 3-0 last night and the rest of you went 2-0 if you stayed away from the parlay. How do I know that? Surprise surprise I can see when each member logs in each day. I’m not stalking you guys but it’s nice to keep tabs on it on a day like yesterday when news comes out after the picks are posted. Yesterday was great but the sun is just coming up this week and we need to build off of yesterday.
Blazers (+6.5) - The Blazers will be in Houston tonight to take on the Rockets. They went into Houston earlier this season and beat the Rockets 104-85. The Rockets struggled in their last three games on the west coast losing all three to the TWolves, Jazz, and Mavs. The Blazers have won two in a row and have looked good doing it. They just beat the TWolves in their last game who beat the Rockets by 12 last week. The Rockets are just 3-7 in their last 10 and I think the Blazers will have a shot to win this one outright but why not take the points for the cushion. Blazers +6.5 is the play in this one.
Blackhawks / Jets Over (6) - The last time these two teams played, they scored 11 total goals. The Jets won the game 6-5. 6 of their last 10 combined games have gone over or pushed at 6. The Jets are coming off of a game against the Flyers where they covered the over themselves and scored 7 goals. The Blackhawks have been allowing a lot of goals all season and are allowing an average of 3.68 goals per game. The Jets offense has been great this year but their defense hasn’t been great and they are allowing just under 3 goals per game this season. If this game plays out anything like the last matchup between these two teams, this one is going way over.
Sabres ML / Capitals ML (+118) - The Sabres have lost 5 games in a row after that 10 game winning streak that seems so long ago. After their 6-2 loss on Saturday, the Sabres had a team meeting on Sunday and followed it up with a “good” practice yesterday according to sources. During this 5 game losing streak, the Sabres have blown a lead in 4 of those games. A few different bounces and this team could have been on a 14 out of 15 game win streak. They will host the Kings tonight and they are 9-5 at home this season - 9-3 before the two most recent losses they’ve suffered. The Kings are just 11-19-1 this season so they are a perfect team for this Sabres team to bounce back again. I don’t think we’ve ever taken a team who has lost 5 games in a row but tonight’s the night. Let’s go Buffalo! The Capitals will host the Red Wings who they beat 3-1 earlier this season. The Caps have won 3 of their last 5 and all 3 were by 2 goals or more. No need to take the puckline since we are parlaying with the Sabres for plus money here.
