VIP Picks 2/1/24

We can call it a set back Wednesday but I still stand behind the plays. We missed Jarrett Allen by 1 rebound. We needed 12 and he had 9 at halftime so kinda pissed about that. Then the Red Wings lost in overtime so that was a close one. Finally, the Bucks (as 10.5 point favorites) lost to the Blazers….down 1, game on the line and Brook Lopez is chucking up a three. I turned that shit off soon as I saw him shoot it. Giannis had a guy guarding him who was about a foot shorter them him on the block and they didn’t even try to get him the ball. But hey enough fucking pouting about it. Baylor extended our College Hoops success to 21-5 on the season! We are still 7-3 on the week so no need to panic or bet desperately tonight. Back to winning, high percentage plays.


*I've always listed the games in order of the time they start, I will continue to do that and use emojis to show the order of confidence. Don't get it twisted!

Player Prop

Tyrese Haliburton Assists Over (9.5) 🥇

  • Haliburton has gone over 9.5 assists in 8 of his last 10 games

  • He’s averaging 12.5 assists per game this season which ranks 1st in the league.

  • Looking back to last time he played the Knicks he had 23 fucking assists!

  • I do expect a high scoring game here so it seems like a good spot to back Haliburton and honestly it’s tough to pass on this line in the single digits.

  • His official status is questionable but “expects” to play


7:30 EST

Knicks Over (119.5) 🥉

  • The two teams played a 140 to 126 game last time they faced each other about a month ago. Wild pace and extremely efficient offenses. 

  • The Knicks have played better defense since then so that’s why I prefer taking their team total instead of the combined over. 

  • The Pacers are the #1 ranked offense in the league averaging 124 ppg. They are also the second worst defensive team so they are great for over bets. I think their pace of play and lack of defense will help us with this Knicks team total.

  • The Knicks have scored 125 and 122 in recent games while the Pacers have allowed 129 & 131 in recent games.

  • Julius Randle is out but it should be an up tempo game with a lot of scoring from both teams. 

  • I’m seeing 89% of the money on the under in this game and it just doesn’t make any sense to me, seeing that much money on it makes me like the over even more. We’ve seen how the NBA has been playing out with action that has 85%+ of the money on something, the opposite happens 9 times out of 10.


CBB:

8:30 EST

Wisconsin (-118) 🥈

  • The public is backing Nebraska at home but we are going with the #6 team in the country to get the win on the road tonight. 

  • Wisconsin beat Nebraska 88-72 in the first meeting on Jan 6. They out-rebounded, won the turnover battle, had 36 points in the pain (easy buckets), and shot 55% from the field. All good signs that we should see continue tonight despite it being a road game in a crazy environment. 

  • Wisconsin is 3-3 on the road this season but one of those losses was against the #1 team in the country. 

  • Nebraska has had ups and downs, they beat #1 Purdue at home but also just got blown out by Maryland. 

  • The narrative is to be careful with road teams in College Basketball but I track evey play we take and we are 12-3 on College Basketball plays on road teams playing mid week games this season.

  • Go Badgers!
