VIP Picks 2/14/24

2-1 Tuesday but we actually lost a 10th of a unit because UNC cost us the strong play. On to Wednesday and really need a profitable day today!


Cross Sport:

7:30 EST

Cavs ML / Celtics ML / Suns ML / Tennessee ML (-109) 🥇

  • Respectable odds at -109 for these 4 big time favorites tonight.

  • The Cavs take on the Bulls who thay have gone 2-0 against this season with wins of 109-91 and 109-95. Their ability to play defense and rebound has allowed them to dominate the first 2 matchups and we should see more of that tonight.

  • The Celtics are no 3-0 against the Nets this season with the most recent win against them coming just last night in a 118-110 final which looks closer than the game really was, they were up 23 at one point. That was in Brooklyn and tonight will be in Boston.

  • The Suns will host the Pistons who just got smashed y the Lakers last night. The Suns beat the Pistons 120-106 the first time they played them this season and KD had 41 in that one.

  • #8 Tennessee goes on the road to face 12-11 Arkansas who has really fallen off from the start of the season when they were #14. They are 1-4 against ranked teams this season and lost their last 2 home games vs ranked opponents by a combined 38 points. A common opponent check in is that Ark just lost by 21 to LSU and Tenn just beat LSU by 20. Tennessee just had their let down game against Texas A&M so they will be in bounce back mode tonight and should get the win. 


NHL:

7:30 EST

Panthers (-130) 🥈

  • The Panthers will be on the road taking on the Penguins who they have already beat twice this season but the most recent was a close one that they won in a shootout. The Panthers killed off 7 power plays in that game….which I’m not crazy about seeing.

  • The goalie matchup favors the Panthers with 25-10-2 Bobrovsky going up against 14-15-4 Jarry. 

  • Florida is tied for the 3rd most wins on the road in the NHL this season with 17 so they’ve been great on the road.

  • Florida has been playing better in recent games as well going 6-2-2 while the Penguins have gone 3-4-3.


CBB:

8:30 EST

South Carolina (+11.5) 🥉

  • Auburn has been very good at home this season but I’ll take +11.5 for the #11 ranked team on the road vs the #13 team.

  • South Carolina was recently 13.5 point underdogs on the road vs #5 Tennessee and they came out and won that game outright 63-59. A week before that, they were 5.5 dogs at home to #6 Kentucky and beat them outright winning by 17. 

  • SC is 21-3 albeit against a schedule with just 3 ranked teams at the time of games. It scared the hell out of me that they lost on the road to Bama by 27 but that was earlier in the season and the Gamecocks seem to be vibing right now. 7 straight SEC wins including 2 Top 10 opponents.

  • Auburn has covered -11.5 at home against good teams like Bama and Ole Miss but they also lost to Baylor at home earlier in the season (we bet on Baylor in that game)

  • Auburn is coming off of an 81-65 road loss to Florida so they will be fired up at home tonight but I expect this game to be a battle. 

  • It should be close so let’s grab the +11.5. 

  • If you are worried about Auburn pulling away then I think the SC team total is a great play at 62.5. One or the other though, not both.
