VIP Picks 1/26/24

I guess we should have just played both of the Celtics plays last night because the other ones sucked! I was pissed about the Timberwolves, they were on pace for 120 at halftime and then only scored 36 in the 3rd and 4th after scoring 36 in the 2nd alone. It was also interested that the Nets came all the way back and just barely covered +3.5. On to Friday and it’s back to WINNING! We are going to play some juicy ones to get back on track for the weekend.


1:40 EST

Xander Schauffele Over Hideki Matsuyama (-180)

  • Both of these guys come in at -7 on the tournament but Hideki had a hole in 1 in Round 2 and Schauffele STILL beat him by three strokes.

  • Looking at each guy’s scorecards to this point, Schauffele has been more consistent and that should continue today.

  • Over the last 3 years, Schauffele has posted a better score in Round 3 compared to his Round 2s and Matsuyama has posted worse scores in Round 3 compared to Round 2 in 2 of the last 3 years with those scores being 6 strokes worse in both years.

  • This feels like a good matchup for Schauffele and it kicks off the weekend with a winner.


7:10 EST


Suns ML / Clippers ML (-102)

  • The Suns will be facing the Pacers who burn us last night but the Pacers are on the second night of a back to back where they have gone 1-6 on the season and that includes their most recent one where they lost to the Blazers.

  • The Sun is rising for the Suns and they are really starting to play like we expected coming into the season with a 7 game winning streak and 8-2 in their last 10. KD and Booker have been going OFF taking turns going for 40+ in their last 4 games. Pacers defense sucks so look for the Suns and one of these guys to have a big night.

  • The Clippers are on the road taking on the Raptors who shook things up with trades and they are 2-8 over their last 10. The Clippers are on a 19-4 run since starting the season 9-10. They are the better team here and shouldn’t have any problem getting the win for us.

7:10 EST

Alternate Lines Parlay

Kevin Durant 25+ Points / Franz Wagner 15+ (-119)

  • I love the Durant matchup against the Pacers defense that’s the second worst in the game. I know he only had 12 the other night but he also had 83 in the 2 games before that.

  • I hope the Pacers can keep it close so he plays into the 4th quarter in this one and as long as that happened, 25+ should be a lock.

  • Franz Wagner you say!? Kind of a random guy to throw in an alternate line parlay with the obvious KD right?

  • Well here’s the deal, he missed time because of an injury, the 7 games before the injury he was averaging 27 ppg. He has scored 19 and 17 in the 2 games since coming back from injury and his minutes played were lower than his season average in those games. The Magic have been off since Monday so I expect his minutes to go up tonight.

  • We are only asking for 15+ from him for this parlay which he has done in 22 of his last 25 games minus that one he got hurt 5 minutes in. Again….looking for LOCKS for today and this one seems like one at a good price. 

8:00 EST

Player Prop

Georges Niang Rebounds Over (3.5)

  • Thank the prop sheet for pointing this one out for us.

  • Niang has gone over 3.5 rebounds in 9 of his last 10 games.

  • He’s gone over 3.5 in his last 2 games against the Bucks as well including Wednesday’s game.

  • I know this one is gonna make some of you cringe when you lock it it but just trust the numbers fellas! 9 out of 10 and it’s -130!
