11/12 VIP Picks

1-1 on the night that was close to being huge. I was watching on my phone but it looked like the Capitals had a goal taken away in overtime. The Monday Night Football jackhammer was spot on though! On to Tuesday.

NHL: 8:05 EST Blues (-165) - The Blues will host the Coyotes who fucked us last night when they beat the Caps in a shootout. The Blues are just about as hot as the Caps were going into last night and they have won 7 straight games and 9 of their last 10. They should also benefit from the fact that they have been off for a few days since their last game while the Coyotes are playing on the second night of a back to back after going into overtime last night. The Coyotes have still lost 3 of their last 5 and the Blues are the better team. I would be shocked if the Coyotes beat a team on a 6 game winning streak and 7 game winning streak in back to back nights. GO BLUES! NBA: 9:00 EST Nets / Jazz Under (219.5) - The Nets have been playing high scoring games all year and that’s the reason why this line is where it’s at. That’s also the reason why 72% of the public are betting the over in this game. The Nets have averaged 119.8 and allowed 121.7. However, you couldn’t pick a team that the Nets have played and tell me they are a good defensive team while keeping a straight face. That’s the difference in tonight’s game. The Nets will be going up against the Jazz who have the best defense in the league which really slows games down. A good example is from last week when the Jazz beat the Bucks 103-100 and held the top offense in the league to 100 points. The Jazz have also gone under 219.5 in 9 of their 10 games this season. The Jazz have held their opponents to an average of 98.1 points per game. The Jazz have also not lost at home this season and their defense has played a major part. I like the under in this one. Two picks tonight since I’ve looked through every sport the last hour and can’t find anything else I’m that confident in. A lot of tough spots for matchups tonight and not worth forcing something.
