1/12 VIP Picks



2-0 last night with the Flames and Jets parlay hitting at +109 odds. Penguins got down 3-0 early and that made us all sweat a bit but they turned it on in the 3rd period and they end up winning 7-4! 20-2 in our last 22 NHL plays………..that’s unrealistic but it’s so fucking real. I can’t even promote those numbers because they are so good that people don’t believe me. But guess what guys, I don’t give a fuck about people who aren’t VIP members - I only care about each and every one of you because you have committed to the KofSports system and I could care less what non VIP members think about us because we are casssssssssssssssssssshing. We are on a 5-0 run over the last 2 days for 6+ units. Let’s roll it into a huge Saturday!

NHL:

Penguins (-155) - After what they did for us last night, let’s ride the hot streak on a back to back as they will take on a bad Kings team and should be able to get another big win for us. They have now won 10 of their last 11 games and have been playing great. Yeah, it took a while for them to get it going last night but they came through for us and when teams are playing like that, you need to ride the hot streak. The Kings have lost 4 out of their last 5 games and even with the Pens on a back to back, I don’t think the Kings have a chance in this game. Let’s ride the Pens to stay hot for us and ride this 20-2 NHL HOT streak. #KOFSPORTS

Golden Knights (-160) - The Knights are coming off of a loss to the Sharks but before that they had won 7 games in a row. They will look to start another winning streak tonight when they go to Chicago to take on a Blackhawks team that has lost 4 of their last 5. These two teams have played twice this season and the Knights are 2-0 against the Blackhawks. In the first meeting in Chicago this season the Knights won 8-3. I’ll give the Blackhawks some credit that 3 of their last 4 wins have only been by 1 goal. However, they seem to be overmatched by this Knights team and it has shown in the first two meetings between them this season. Go Vegas!

NBA:

Celtics (-7) - Yes, the Celts lost their last game but we expected that since it was the second night of a back to back and they have struggled with those all season. They are rested now and will be taking on a Magic team who has lost 4 games in a row by 10+ points in each game. Before the loss to the Heat on the back to back, the Celtics had won 4 in a row by 10+ in each game. I think a rested Celts team will go in and run away with this one against the Magic who have not shown any signs of life lately. Go Celts!

NFL:

I know, here’s what you all have been waiting for. Now, I’ll admit our opening weekend of NFL playoffs wasn’t great but I think we can blame that on the fact that we were a little aggressive. Let’s focus on some high percentage plays this week.

First things first, a Saturday/Sunday teaser and I love it:

Colts (+11) / Eagles (+14) - News flash, the Chiefs probably couldn’t have drawn a tougher playoff matchup than these red hot Colts. The Colts are almost as hot as we have been in NHL picks. They closed out their season by winning 9 of their final 10 and then they went on the road into Houston and basically dominated that Texans team. Don’t get me wrong, the Chiefs are a much better team than the Texans. BUT - the mismatch in this one comes with Andrew Luck and this Colts offense against the Chiefs passing defense that ranked 31 out of 32 this year. I am fully expecting Luck to pick this secondary apart and although I’ll put it out there that I like the Colts to win this game outright, teasing it up to +11 seems like an absolute lock to me and a safer play than the moneyline. Another factor that’s being underlooked and undervalued in this Colts Chiefs game is how well the Colts defense has been playing. They have been lights out and have allowed an average of 13 points per game over their last 6 games. The Chiefs will score, no question about that but I’m confident in this Colts defense to make a few stops more than I am in the Chiefs D to make a few stops. Books are handing us the Colts teased to +11 on a fucking platter. Take it. Now, on to the Eagles. The Eagles who are 5-1 in games that Nick Foles has started this season. The Eagles who are the defending Superbowl Champions. I know, they are going on the road to take on a high powered Saints team and a Saints team who I said would win the Superbowl back in October. I’m not saying to take the Eagles to win this game outright (yet)....but +14 is another one that seems like an absolute lock to me. Now, I know you’ll all point out the easy stat that the Saints beat the Eagles 48-7 earlier this season. All I’ll say to that is that Carson Wentz threw for 156 in that game and this Eagles team is a COMPLETELY different team when Nick Foles is playing QB. This Saints team struggled down the stretch starting with that loss to the Cowboys, followed by a game against the Bucs where they only scored 3 points in the first half against the Bucs, then a 12-9 win over the Panthers, late win over a Steelers team who didn’t make the playoffs, and finally a loss to the Panthers (didn’t matter). However, there’s no denying that this Saints team who seemed like the juggernaut earlier this season has limped into the playoffs. The opposite can be said for the Eagles who won 5 of their final 6 regular season games and then have the momentum coming off of that double doink win against the Bears - yes we had them at +220 on the moneyline. This Eagles team with Nick Foles aka Big Dick Nick just feel like that team who finds a way to get it done. Give me the Eagles with a two touchdown buffer in a playoff game. That’s a great teaser right there.

Snowing in KC but according to our inside source KGB - the snow should be done by kickoff!

Bonus Player Prop bet: Andrew Luck Passing Yards Over (303.5) - Listed on Mybookie.ag. We took this same player prop last week and it was well on pace to hit with Luck throwing for just under 200 yards in the first half. The reason it didn’t hit is because the Colts ran away with that game and went to a run the clock out approach in the second half. I don’t see the Colts running away with this game and these two offenses should be going back and forth in this one. The Chiefs passing defense ranks 31 out of 32 in the league this year and Andrew Luck is going to throw the ball all over them today.

Cowboys (+7) - Gotta do it right? What did Jared Goff do in the playoffs last year? Oh yeah, he lost 26-13 to the Falcons (at home). It’s been talked about that there will be more Cowboys fans than Rams fans at this game so it’s basically a home game for the Cowboys. It’s a fact that this Rams team was 2-3 against their 5 most recent opponents who ended up making the playoffs. I feel like that Cowboys playoff win last week over the Seahawks was HUGE for this organization and it has been a huge momentum boost. The Cowboys also come in as the hotter team coming in winners of 8 of their last 9 games. I always say I don’t trust young QBs in the playoffs until they can prove that they can get it done. I said the same thing about Goff last year before he lost 26-13 against the Falcons - don’t believe me? Here’s the post:


I think this is another year where Goff isn’t fully prepared and the hiccups against Philly and Chicago make me a bit concerned about what this Rams team can do. I’ll take the Cowboys with the points in this one and I think the Cowboys will have a chance to win this game outright, seriously. Take the points to be safe though.

Teaser:

Cowboys (+13) / Under (54.5) - The reasoning for the Cowboys can be seen above where we are taking them to cover the +7. Now we throw it in a teaser with the under. Getting an EXTRA touchdown buffer makes me even more confident in the Cowboys. As for the under, the Cowboys want to dominate this game with their top 10 defense that is allowing just 20 points per game this season. The Rams have struggled against good defenses this year. They have played 5 teams with top 15 defenses and they are 2-3 in those games averaging just 21.3 points per game in those losses. This Rams defense was hyped up this season but they finished ranked #20 in the league. However, I expect the Rams defense to show up on the big stage tonight. The Cowboys will be looking to attack on the ground and control the clock in this game. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Rams went with the run first approach in this game since Goff struggled in the playoffs last year. I can’t see this being more than a 27-24 type game so I am liking the teased under in this one.
