1/28 VIP Picks

2-0 start to the week with the CAPS and Heat coming through for us last night. Let’s keep the party going all week!

CBB:

7:00 EST

Florida State (-1.5) - Florida State comes in on a 10 game winning streak and that includes a win over this Virginia team back on Jan 15 although that win only came by 4 points. Florida State has won some close games but they have also run away with some games during this winning streak. 2 of their 3 road wins came by 10+ points during this winning streak. Virginia has lost 3 of their last 5 games. The second half defense was really good for Virginia in the first matchup and that’s why the game was close but if Florida State makes some adjustments they could run away with this one - they are averaging 76 points per game this season in comparison to Virginia’s 56. 

9:00 EST

Auburn (-5) - Auburn had two recent ugly road losses but those are their only losses this season coming in at 17-2. Ole Miss comes in 10-9 and they have lost 6 of their last 7 games with the one loss against a ranked opponent coming by 20! Ole Miss was only able to score 54 and 58 points in their last 2 games against ranked opponents and it’ll be tough for them to keep up with the fast pace Auburn offense that is averaging 79 points a game. WAR EAGLE!

NBA:

8:00 EST

Celtics / Heat Over (219) - This one should be a good one and a lot of fun to watch. Both teams have scored 110+ in 4 of their last 5 games. They are both averaging 112 points per game this season. Both teams have the ability to drain 3 pointers at an alarming rate. I’m counting on this one being high scoring and 110 a side seems likely. Over!
