3/18 VIP Picks



Rough day yesterday going 0-3 but we still finished the week with a solid profit hitting at 60% on the week and a nice jackhammer win on Thursday! New week and we get closer to March Madness. Here’s a reminder for you guys that the bracket pool registration closes on Wednesday so make sure that you DM or email me if you’re looking to get signed up! It’s $10 per bracket and you can enter up to 5. It’s all run on Yahoo Fantasy Sports. Now, let’s get to the picks for tonight and start the week off right.

NHL:

Jets (-170) - 10:30 EST - The Jets have a nice two game winning streak going after beating the Bruins and Flames in back to back games. They also played the Sharks tough in a 5-4 loss and beat the Hurricanes 8-1 before that. They have been playing much better hockey than the Kings have. The Kings are just 2-15 in their last 17 games so to say they have been slumping would be an understatement. They have split the season series 1-1 but with the way the Kings have been struggling and the solid hockey that the Jets have been playing, the Jets are a must play tonight.

Cross Sport Parlay:

*2:44 est update - Blake Griffin is out tonight due to rest. If you haven't already locked this in I would throw in the Raptors moneyline instead of Pistons (as long as Lowry or Leonard aren't both out) and risk a full 2 or 3 units to make up for the juice (-185).*

Lightning ML (7:30 EST) / Pistons ML (7:00 EST) (-118) - JACKHAMMER - I really don’t see this one losing tonight. The Lightning will host the Coyotes tonight and they will be looking for revenge after losing 7-1 last time they played on 10/27. I’ll give you a little insight on why they lost that game, they played a game the night before and got the win in Vegas. They stayed in Vegas that night and flew to Arizona the next day. We all know what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, that led to a tired and hungover Lightning team the following night when they lost 7-1 to the Coyotes. Time for revenge tonight when the Bolts will be fully rested and playing on their home ice where they are 8-2 in their last 10. The Coyotes have 3 wins in their last 5 games but 2 of them were against the worst two teams in the Western Conference. I like the Bolts at home tonight. The Pistons burnt us yesterday by beating the Raptors but that goes to show how well this team is playing right now. They are now 7-3 in their last 10 and they beat the Cavs by 36 last time they played in Cleveland. ESPN had the spread listed at -35.5 this morning and I would have considered taking that but the spread is really 7 in this game. We might as well take the moneyline and parlay it with the Lightning tonight so we get -118 value. The Cavs are just 3-7 in their last 10 and 0-3 against the Pistons this season. I don’t see the Pistons letting us down against the Cavs.

Just two plays tonight with a bunch of NBA games that seem to be toss ups based on where the spreads are at and key players in question about playing. Let’s start the week off with a bang.
