VIP Picks 1/22/24

A grind of a week last week to essentially finish the week even at -0.01 units so a $10 bettor would be down $1 on the week. I could point to a couple that didn't go our way that should have but we also won some that could have very well gone the other way so I will keep my mouth shut on that. Full disclosure, I got the Covid as of last night so I've put together these plays and some quick write ups but they might not be as detailed as normal. I didn't look at every game like I always do, I just went straight for the matchups that I like for tonight and trying to get some good value.

Cross Sport:

7:00 EST


UNC ML / Suns ML (-106)

  • UNC will be home tonight where they are 8-0 on the season.

  • 13-5 Wake Forest comes to town but they haven’t faced a ranked opponent all season so #4 UNC should take care of business.

  • The Suns will be home and riding a 5 game winning streak and KD just had 40 and Booker just had 52 in recent games.

  • The Bulls have struggled on the road this season (7-13) and the Suns already beat them this season. 


7:00 EST

Player Prop

Jeremy Sochan Threes Made Over (0.5)

  • Sochan is on an 11 game streak where he has made at least 1 three pointer.

  • He doesn’t take a lot but he’s hit one in 11 games and in 14 of his last 16 games so I’m willing to pay the -160 for it tonight against the Sixers in a game where the Spurs will be desperate for offense.

  • Philly has the best three point defense in the league but Sochan isn’t going to be their top focus on defense which makes me think he will knock down a wide open three at some point.

8:00 EST

Player Prop

LaMelo Ball Points Over (22.5)

  • He’s going up against the best defense in the league but he’s still going to get his shots up. The spread is -13.5 in this game as well so the TWolves likely won’t be playing with the full defensive intensity for the whole game here.

  • If you take out that one game where Ball got hurt early, he’s averaged 30 ppg over his last 9 which indicated plenty of value on over 22.5 at -110 odds.

  • He didn’t play on Saturday but he has been upgraded to probable for this game and he’s also probable to go over 22.5 points for us. 


10:00 EST

1st Period

Blackhawks / Canucks Over (1.5)

  • The Canucks are the #1 ranked offensive team and have been the 2nd best team for 1st period overs going 30-16.

  • Vancouver has gone over 1.5 in the 1st in 4 of their last 5 games and they’ve covered the number themselves in 3 of those 4 games.

  • The Blackhawks have been the 8th best 1st period over team this season. 

  • The Canucks and Blackhawks went over 1.5 in the 1st in their only head to head meeting this season.
