1/8 VIP Picks



Unbelievable for Alabama to get embarrassed in a National Championship game like that. So much for that defense that I thought so highly of. I’ll own it, I’m a loser in the biggest game of the College Football season but we still finished the season at 58% overall. I have got some messages talking about how much of a let down it is to lose in the championship. I agree with that but let this be a reminder that there’s never any guarantees in sportsbetting and you can’t ever rely on one single game no matter if it’s the championship or not. One guy said, “how you not have insight on that?” I posted the insight that I thought would put us in the best position to win and it didn’t work out. Bama had their holder running on 4th down instead of leaving the ball in the hands of the #2 ranked offense - I can’t predict things like that. The Spurs eased some of the pain at -3 as long as you bet them but obviously Bama was the jackhammer of the night so it was a losing night. That’s our 2nd losing night in the last 10 days, not terrible. We will look for a few high percentage plays tonight to get back on track for another winning week.

NBA:

Pacers (-10) - The Cavs have been up to no good this season and as of late, they haven’t even been competing in these games. The Cavs have lost 9 games in a row and 5 of those losses came by 20+. There’s no question that the Cavs are hoping to have the best chance to get Zion in the draft and some of these games it looks like they are TRYING to lose. The Pacers come in winners of 6 of their last 7 and they are currently #3 in the Eastern Conference standings. They have already beat the Cavs 110-107 earlier this season but after seeing this recent debacle by the Cavs, I can see the Pacers adding another 20+ point loss to the Cavs season tonight.

NHL:

Parlay:

Penguins ML / Capitals ML (+134) - The Penguins had their 8 game winning streak snapped on Sunday against the Blackhawks but they will be looking to bounce back tonight against the Panthers who they haven’t played yet this season. The Panthers come in 17-16-7 and they have lost 3 of their last 5 games. The Caps had a tough 3 game stretch where they lost to the Predators, Blues, and Stars but they bounced back with a win over the Red Wings in their most recent game. Tonight, they will take on the Flyers who have lost 7 games in a row. The Caps should take care of business at home for us tonight. This moneyline parlay pays +134 odds.

Blue Jackets / Lightning Over (6.5) - We are starting to see more over unders in hockey that are listed at 6.5, the game is changing. 5 and 5.5 used to always be the standard. I’m really liking this game to go over 6.5 tonight. The first time these two teams played this season, the Lightning beat the Blue Jackets 8-2. 10 total goals in that matchup. In the Lightning’s last 5 games, there have been score totals of 7, 8, 11, and 11. The Jackets have gone over 6.5 in 3 of their last 5 games and they will be throwing the puck on net tonight in attempt to keep up with this high powered Lightning offense.

Parlay:

Golden Knights / Sharks (even) - Knights host the Rangers who have lost 3 in a row and have been outscored by 15 goals during that stretch. Sharks host the Oilers who they scored 7 goals on less than 2 weeks ago. Even money is great value for this parlay.
