VIP Picks 1/31/24

3-0! 3-0! 3-0! Red hot to start the week and the last 3 days with most of you on a 9-1 run! Looking back at last week, we started 6-1 then tried taking a tempting parlay that we lost and put us into a bit of a tailspin the second half of the week. We aren’t trying to get cute this week, we are just going to keep targeting high percentage plays. KOOOOFSPORTS!!

Parlay

Clippers ML / Cavs ML / Bucks ML / UConn ML (-145) 🥇

  • I mean, take the free money when they are giving it to you.

  • Clippers are facing the 9-37 Wizards

  • Cavs are facing the 6-30 Pistons

  • Bucks are facing the 14-33 Blazers and Doc is looking for his first win as their coach. 

  • All 3 of these NBA teams are favored by double digits so it would be SHOCKING to see any of them lose outright. 

  • UConn is home and they are favored by 13.5 against 14-6 Providence which I would want no part of the spread but I’ll take #1 UConn to win straight up at home for this parlay.


NBA:

7:00 EST

Jarrett Allen (CLE) Rebounds O (11.5) 🥈

  • Jarrett Allen has been grabbing boards at a high rate going over 11.5 in 8 of his last 10 games and he has had 11 or more in 15 straight games!

  • He’s going up against the Pistons tonight so there should be plenty of rebound opportunities for him. 

  • There is the risk that he comes out of this game early because of it being a blowout but with the way he has been going over this number, let’s take out chances for him to keep the streak going tonight.

Team Total

Baylor Over (71.5) 🥉

  • #18 Baylor has lost 3 in a row so they should be coming in plenty motivated to get a win tonight.

  • They are on the road against UCF who recently beat #3 Kansas at home and we have seen low scoring games from ranked teams against UCF this season.

  • So why Baylor? Why take them in this spot? Well, the number is at 71.5 and they are averaging 85.1 ppg. They have been efficient and rank 15th in field goal percentage. 

  • Houston, BYU, Texas, and Kansas all went under 71.5 vs UCF but another efficient offense Miami scored 88 on them earlier this season.

  • UCF might play slow at times but they still average 72 possessions per game and so does Baylor. 

  • Baylor’s scoring has dropped off in recent games 



NHL:

7:00 EST

Red Wings (-110) 4️⃣

  • The Red Wings will host the Senators tonight who they have lost 2 out of 3 to this season but those losses came on the road and they will be home tonight.

  • The Red Wings are 14-8-4 at home this season while the Senators are 6-13 on the road. 

  • The Sens have also lost 2 out of their last 3 coming into tonight and they allowed a 7 piece to the Rangers recently.

  • Alex Lyon will be in net for DET and he’s been solid 13-6 with a 2.49 GA/G and he will be opposed by Joonas Korpisalo who has allowed an average of 3.44 goals per game. 

  • Let’s back the Red Wings at home tonight.
