1/2 VIP Picks



Texas Longhorn football is back! They cover the +11.5 and for those of you who jumped on the moneyline, that hit too. It closed at +400! Winning day if you jumped on the moneyline but a losing day if you didn’t thanks to this play:


What a loser. When you’re as hot as we have been, it takes plays like this to make us lose. On to today, not many lines that I am loving so we have a couple good value moneyline parlays for tonight.

NHL:

Parlay

Penguins ML / Flames ML (+159) - The Penguins have been COMING TOGETHER as of late and they have won 6 in a row and 8 of their last 9. They will be on the road taking on the Rangers tonight but they have also won their last 4 games on the road. The Rangers are just 5-10 over their last 15 games. You can catch this one on NBC Sports Network at 7 est. The Flames have won just 2 of their last 5 but they are still sitting in a three way tie for first place in the Western Conference. They are coming off of a big 8-5 win against the Sharks on New Year’s Eve and they will be taking on a BAD Red Wings team who has lost 9 of their last 10 and that’s the second time this season that the Wings have had a stretch that bad. This moneyline parlay seems like great value for two superior teams to win straight up for us.

*If you want to play either one of these moneylines individually, you can make it a jackhammer. I’m more confident in the Flames.*

NBA:

Parlay

Celtics ML / Sixers ML (+111) - The Celtics will return home from a road trip where they went 1-2 and didn’t look very good. They were even down 17 against the Grizzlies before they came back and won. It’ll be good for them to get back home tonight where they are 11-5 on the season compared to their 10-10 road record. They will host the TWolves who they already beat in Minnesota this season 118-109 on Dec 1 and that was the second night of a back to back. I like the Celts to get this win straight up at home tonight. The Sixers will be on their 5th game of a road trip but luckily they will be taking on the 9-29 Suns tonight. The Suns had a bright stretch where they won 4 games in a row but they have got back to their losing ways and they have lost 4 of their last 5 and the average margin of defeat has been just under 13 points in those 4 losses. I like the Sixers to get the win for us.

*Update 12:54 est - Kyrie Irving is out with an eye injury tonight.*

Two plays tonight because I’m not crazy about anything else and I always tell you guys that I don’t force picks just to put them out there. I am confident in these two parlays and I view them as very valuable plays tonight.
