12/19 VIP Picks

2-2 but a profitable night with the JACKHAMMER hitting! We will take it after the start we had to the week but let’s ride that momentum into the Holiday week/end/week. Hopefully all of you will be taking some time off from work to relax and spend time with friends and family over the next week. I fully regret taking Hornets moneyline rather than the +3 now but the write up was spot on when it said they get blown out when they lose. They were down 20 the whole second half until the late run where they cut the lead to 2. I am also happy to announce that we will not be taking any road teams in College Basketball the rest of the season, it’s just not worth it. Over in Philly and the Avalanche beat the Blackhawks for the third time this season with the 4th matchup on Saturday. College Football Bowl season starts up tomorrow, NFL on Saturday and Sunday this week….things are looking up for us going into the weekend. LFG. CFB: 7:00 EST Wofford / Duke Over (142) - Looking at the way both of these offenses have played this season, this game should go way over 142. Duke is averaging 83.4 points per game and Wofford has averaged 75.5 points per game. If those offensive averages hold true, we will get close to 160 in this game tonight! We would need 71 a side to go over and Wofford has gone over 71 in 6 of their 11 games while Duke has gone over 71 in 9 of their 10 games. Another good simulation to look at this over is if you look at the last 10 games IF they played head to head, 8 would have gone over, 1 would have went under, and 1 would have pushed. Another nice stat for us is that dating back to last season, we are 6-1 in our last 7 College Basketball over unders. I’m looking for an offensive & exciting game to be played between these two teams tonight on ESPN 2. NHL: 7:30 EST Predators (-145) - The Preds will continue their road trip tonight that they have opened up with two wins in a row - 5-2 over the Rangers and then an even more impressive 8-3 win over the Islanders. I’m expecting the Preds to stay hot tonight against the Senators who have lost 9 of their last 12 games. They also took an ugly 6-1 loss to the Panthers on Monday. Nashville has been better than Ottawa offensively and defensively all season and I think that will continue tonight. NBA: Teaser: 8:00 EST Lakers (+8) / Nets (+7) - The Lakers and Bucks will square off in what could very well be an NBA Finals preview tonight. Both teams come in 24-4 and I’m expecting this game to be close. The Lakers lost their last game with Anthony Davis out but they are still 14-2 on the road this season and they have only lost by 8 points or more twice! Davis is listed as questionable again tonight but this is a big matchup on the big stage nationally televised TNT game so I’m expecting him to play. AND when he plays, he is effective, he has been all season. I think this game will be close right until the end and I’m confident the Lakers can cover this teased +8. Then we have the Nets who came through in overtime for us the other night. They are now 6-2 on the road without Kyrie and 11-5 overall since he has been out. The Spurs have won 3 of their last 4 home games but each one of those wins came by 2 points or less and the one loss was to the CLEVELAND CAVALIERS. Teasing the Nets in this one gives us a 7-0 lead to start the game and I’m confident that they can cover that +7 for us when this one is over.
