1/4 VIP Picks



2-1 for another winning night and another jackhammer hits. We could have went with the puck line in that Lightning game but you saw the odds and we played the high percentage play. We improve our run to 16-4 in our last 20. Apparently we were missing something in the Caps game because they got absolutely worked but Ovechkin did snap his 6 game goalless streak. We are in prime position for the weekend and we are playing a heat check parlay tonight. Happy Friday!

NHL:

Predators / Red Wings Over (5.5) - Gotta love hockey overs at 5.5, they are becoming more rare in this day and age. I remember a few years ago we got over unders at 5 all the time and you settle with a push in a 3-2 game, it was great. The Red Wings last 5 games have gone over 5.5 with total scores of 9, 7, 6, 7, and 8. They have lost all of those games. The Preds have won two games in a row and have looked good doing it by beating the Caps 6-3 and the Flyers 4-0. It’s been a nice offensive outburst for the Preds and a major reason for that is because they got Viktor Arvidsson back from injury (after over a month) who is a 30 goal scorer. Both of these teams have averaged about 3 goals per game this season and the results of their recent games make me think this over 5.5 is a lock tonight.

NBA:

Parlay

Celtics ML / Pacers ML (+108) - Great value on the moneyline parlay here tonight. The Mavericks will be on the third game of their current road trip and they are just 3-16 on the road this season. The Celtics are coming off of a big win at home on Wednesday and they have had a day off with no travel to rest for this Friday Night matchup in Boston. They will be without Kyrie again tonight and they are now 20-3 in home games without Kyrie since he has been a Celtic. It’s crazy to say but this team looks better at times without Kyrie and it has to do with the ball movement and finding the open guys. Celts are favored by 5 in this one but parlaying the moneyline so we only need them to win straight up. For the second leg, we have the Pacers who have won 5 in a row and 12 of their last 14 games. They are also 2-0 against this Bulls team this season who is just 10-28. The Pacers are favored by -6.5 and the 3 of the Bulls last 5 losses have come by 25 points or more. I’ll take Pacers to win this game.

Jazz (-8) - The Jazz haven’t won in Cleveland in nearly 7 years but the Cavs haven’t been this bad in that same time frame. The Cavs come in on a 7 game losing streak and they have lost by and average of 15 points per game. That streak even includes a 20 point loss to the 10-28 Bulls who we are betting against tonight. The Jazz are still below .500 on the season but one thing they have been able to do this season it absolutely beat up on bad teams - examples - 129-97 vs Knicks, 117-96 vs Blazers, 120-90 vs Blazers, 111-84 vs heat, 133-112 vs Kings, and 117-102 vs Mavs. The Cavs are a worse team than all of these teams and I think the Jazz will beat up on them tonight. Take the -8.
