VIP Picks 1/17/24

3-0! 3-0! 3-0! And it feels even better after the weekend we had. Still work to do though but let’s keep the same mindset of going for high percentage plays tonight. I am adding these plays early because I fear the lines are going to move unfavorably for us as the day goes on so lock in the hockey one and the NBA straight play asap. I will likely add an NBA Player Prop by 5 pm est.


7:30 EST

Blackhawks / Sabres Under (6)

  • The Blackhawks just struggled to get by the Sharks 2-1 last night and they have gone under 6 in 4 of their last 5 games.

  • The Sabres haven’t been lighting it up offensively lately by any means either and they have gone under in 3 of their last 5 games while scoring 3 or less goals in 4 of their last 5.

  • Both teams are missing key offensive pieces so this should play out to be a low scoring game.

  • They have played each other one time this season and the Sabres won that game 3-2.

  • Let’s take the under tonight.


*Giannis has been ruled out. So don't lock it in if you haven't already.

7:30 EST


Bucks ML / Knicks ML (+139)

  • Nice little plus money action here in two favorable matchups tonight.

  • The Bucks will be on the road against the Cavs who they already beat 119-111 this season.

  • A key for this game is that the Cavs are without Darius Garland and Evan Mobley and they might be without LeVert as well which would mean they will be without 3 of their top 4 scorers against the 2nd ranked offense in the league.

  • Cleveland’s winning streak sounds good when you hear a 5 game winning streak but when you look who it came against it’s not as great - Bulls, Nets, Spurs, and Wizards twice.

  • The Knicks will be hosting the Rockets who have lost 4 of their last 5 and the 1 win was a 2 point win over the Pistons. LOL. 

  • The Knicks have been reliable at home 11-5 this season and they should be able to beat up on the Rockets who have really been struggling, especially defensively allowing 124, 145, 110, 124, & 120 over their last 5 games. I’m confident in NY to play better defense than that and get the win.

9:00 EST

Jazz (-162)

  • I feel like the Jazz’s 9-1 run over their last 10 games has kind of gone under the radar but I know we bet against them a couple times during it. They are clicking right now and have scored 130+ in 4 of their last 5 games.

  • The Jazz have also been one of the best home teams this season going 15-5 at home.

  • The Warriors come to town tonight who have gone 2-10 in their last 12 road games!

  • The Warriors have also lost 4 of their last 5 and the defense has not been good allowing 129, 141, 131, and 133 in 4 of those games.

  • I’m just taking the moneyline as the official play but you can take the spread if you want better odds, the Warriors have lost by an average of 17.7 ppg in their last 4 losses.

8:00 EST

Player Prop

CJ McCollum Threes Made Over (2.5)

  • Juiced to the max at -180 but you can bet whatever you want to on this one. I'll personally be playing to win 1 unit.

  • CJ has gone over 2.5 threes made in 9 of his last 10 games!

  • He's averaged 4 threes per game during that stretch so we can feel pretty good about him going over again tonight.

  • He'll be going up against the Hornets who do present the risk of a blowout which may limit his minutes down the stretch but they also offer the benefit of having the WORST three point defense in the league. So there's a great chance he can go over this number early for us whether it's in the first half or by the end of the 3rd quarter.
