10/31 VIP Picks

2-1 night with both wins coming in a plus money +120 and +145 made for a profitable night - 4 profitable nights in a row and 5 in our last 6. Congratulations to the Nationals on winning the World Series, very impressive run for them. We have a smalllll slate of games tonight but let’s see what we can put together for our 5th straight profitable night!

Cross Sport Teaser: 8:00 EST Baylor / West Virginia Over (51.5) / 49ers (-4) - JACKHAMMER - Let’s start off by talking about the Baylor offense that has averaged 38.9 points per game this season and they have covered 52 points themselves two times this season. The average total points in Baylor games against defenses ranking outside of the Top 50 is 63.8 points per game. West Virginia has allowed their opponents to average 36.8 points per game which ranks #120 out #130. Look for Baylor to do whatever they want on offense tonight. Baylor QB Charlie Brewer has 4 games throwing for 300 or more yards and the Baylor backs John Lovett and JaMycal Hasty are averaging 6.9 and 6.5 yards per carry which ranks them both in the Top 30. Baylor should cover the majority of the 52 for us, if not the whole thing. Baylor’s defense has allowed just under 20 points per game and WVU’s offense has averaged 22.7 points per game. If Baylor can score somewhere in the 30s which they have done in 5 of their 7 games so far this season, I’m confident that this one goes over 52. Then we have the undefeated 49ers going on the road to take on the Cardinals. The Cardinals have not beat a team with a winning record this season. The Cardinals suffered an 18 point loss to the Panthers at home and a 17 point loss to the Seahawks at home. The 49ers beat the Panthers 51-13 last week. The defensive unit has been the most impressive for the 49ers this season and they have only allowed their opponents to score 11 points per game (#2 in the league). That is not a good matchup for this Cardinals offense led by rookie QB Kyler Murray who only put up 9 points against the #9 ranked defense (Saints) last week. It hasn’t mattered where the game was played or the weather, the 49ers have won all 7 games by 4 or more points. Give me the 49ers to cover the teased -4.

NHL:

Predators (-145) - The Preds have won 4 games in a row and 3 of those 4 came at home in Smashville. They are now 6-1 at home this season with Pekka Rinne in net. He is likely to start tonight and I like the Preds to stay hot as the chicken in Nashville. The Preds have the #1 ranked offense in the league averaging 4 goals per game. The Flames have already played the #2 (Avalanche) & #3 (Capitals) ranked offenses this season and allowed them both to score 5 goals. The Flames have lost 3 of their last 4 games. Go Preds, stay hot! Hot chicken, up front!! 

2 plays tonight with the small slate but let’s stay hot and roll into the weekend!!
