1-2 yesterday with a close one on the Thunder coming back but that Bucks vs Pacers game was just a disgrace. On to today!
Round 1 Matchup Parlay
Hovland over Theegala / Scheffler over Clark (+118)
We are starting off our golf season with a parlay of the top two favorites going up against guys who are simply not as good as them. Don't get me wrong, the other guys are pretty fucking good too but they aren't as good as the guys we are taking here. Scheffler is #1 going up against Clark #10 and Hovland is #4 going up against #32 Theegala. Looking back to last year's event, Scheffler finished 7th, Hovland finished 18th, Theegala finished 33rd, and Clark was not in the tournament.
Rangers ML / Bucks ML / Jets ML (-101)
The Rangers will be at home as one of the biggest betting favorites of the season but they should win unless the game is fixed. They are hosting the 11-24-2 Blackhawks who have a 12 game losing streak on the road and are just 4-15-1 on the road this season.
The Bucks defense was comical last night and a lot of you will call me crazy for betting on them tonight but I expect them to bounce back against one of the worst teams in the league. The Bucks beat the Spurs 132-119 in the first meeting.
The Jets will face the Sharks who are on a 9 game losing streak. The Jets have been hot winning 4 of their last 5 and they have the advantage on both ends of the ice in this matchup.
The Canucks are starting to turn into our team, we are 8-1 on bets including them this season. That includes them to win, cover, or Overs (obviously).
They were great to use the other night when we took them and they were up 5-0 at the end of the first period.
On to tonight, they will go on the road to take on the Blues who they beat 5-0 in the first head to head meeting of the season. They won 5-0 AND went 0 for 4 on the Power Play in that game so it could have been even more.
The Blues are just 18-17-1 on the season and they have lost back to back games coming into this one.
The Canucks have played well on the road this season and they are red hot right now going 7-1-2 over their last 10 so let’s take them again tonight.
We have good value on the Avalanche as underdogs on the road tonight and we will take it.
The Stars have upgraded the status of starting goalie Jake Oettinger from week to week to day to day but I don’t care even if he’s back tonight, the Avs scored 5 goals on him last time they faced him.
The Avs have won 4 of their last 5 while the Stars are 2-2 over their last 4 with some weak competition mixed in there.
Georgiev is the likely starter in net for the Avs and he’s 20-8-2 on the season so we can feel pretty good about that.
Klay Thompson Threes Made Over (2.5)
Klay Thompson has gone over 2.5 threes made in 8 of his last 10 games so the 80% trend is why it’s a little juicy but it’s worth it.
He’s also gone over in 5 of his last 7 home games with 3, 6, 4, 6, & 4.
Thompson has gone over in 1 of the 2 head to head games against the Nuggets this season but the key number for me is that he has taken 18 three point shots in those games and he will have to be shooting tonight for the Warriors to have a chance.
