3/12 VIP Picks

2-2 last night with Flyers/Celts letting us down. The Sharks were good value and so was Wofford who went on a 16-0 run late in the second half to cover for us. Our College Basketball picks are now 8-3 since Feb 15. That’s called getting hot at the right time and picking our spots wisely. Let’s see what we have for tonight!

NHL:

Penguins / Capitals Under (6.5) – You probably didn’t see this one coming when you saw it on the schedule as these two teams are typically known for their offense. The Penguins are averaging 3.42 goals per game and the Caps are averaging 3.38 goals per game. There was that 7-6 game between these two early in the season but they have played twice since then and both games finished with final scores of 2-1. On top of that, 9 of the last 10 combined games have gone under 6.5. I like the under tonight in this game that should have a playoff feel to it.

Stars (-135) – The Stars will be on the road taking on the Sabres who will be with out their best player Jack Eichel who was suspended two games for a hit in Sunday’s game. That won’t help the Sabres who have lost 4 games in a row. The Stars have won 4 of their last 5 and Ben Bishop has two shutouts in a row for them. He also shutout this Sabres team in a 1-0 win on January 30th. Give me the Stars tonight!

Ncaab:

Gonzaga / Saint Mary’s Over (139) – The Zags scored 100 points last night and they are averaging 90.2 points per game this season. Saint Mary’s is averaging 73.3 points per game. If they hold true to their averages that would put us about 20 points higher than where the line is set at 139. This will be the third game between these teams this season, one has gone over and one has gone under. I think this game will play out much like last night where Gonzaga had a big lead in the second half and they “let up” a bit on defense which will allow Saint Mary’s to put up a good amount of points. If the Zags put up 90-100 we only need 40-50 points from St Mary’s who haven’t scored less than 50 points in a single game this season. Really liking this over tonight.
