VIP Picks 2/16/24

1-2 yesterday thanks to the Bucks just laying down at 11.5 pont favorites, they fucked around. On to today and honestly, not a whole lot going on with the NBA on the All Star Weekend and only 1 NHL game on the slate. We are going to target a golf play and a College Baseball Opening Day Parlay then a Future’s Bet I’m feeling good about locking in.


PGA:

Round 2 Score

Jordan Spieth Under (69.5) 🥈

  • Spieth shot a 66 (-5) yesterday and he’s tied for 5th place just 2 strokes out of 1st so look for him to come out and look to turn in another solid round.

  • Different courses but he’s gone under 69.5 in 11 of his 12 rounds so far in 2024.

  • He’s been playing great with 3 Top 6 finishes in his 4 events.

  • He came through for us in a matchup last Friday, let’s take his round prop today.



College Baseball:

4:00 EST

Parlay

Arkansas ML / Coastal Carolina ML / Texas A&M ML (-120) 🥇

  • Arkansas opens up as the #3 ranked team in the country. Hagen Smith takes the ball for Arkansas and he went 8-2 with a 3.64 ERA last season. Smith is listed as the Pre-Season SEC Pitcher of the year and projects to be a 1st round pick in the MLB this year. James Madison will put Todd Mozoki out there on the mound who went 1-4 with a 4.89 ERA last year. His game log isn’t available but I can guarantee he didn’t face a lineup as good as Arkansas last year. They should pound him. 

  • Coastal Carolina returns 7 starters in the lineup that ranked 4th in runs scores in the country last season. Their pitching needs to take a step forward this year but averaging 9.2 runs per game should give them some breathing room for a few mistakes on the mound. 

  • Texas A&M comes in #8 in the country and have made back to back College World Series appearances. Zach Voss will pitch for McNeese and he got rocked in limited work last year. He has good previous stats against Community Colleges but #8 Texas A&M ain’t no Community College. 


FUTURE’S BET

Celtics 2024 Champions / Dodgers 2024 Champions (+1520)

We are at the halfway point in the season and the Celtics hold the best record in the league at 43-12. They’ve gone 26-3 at home and 30-6 in the East. 3 of those 6 losses were decided by 3 points or less. 1 of those losses came on a home to road back to back after an overtime battle and win against the #1 team in the Western Conference followed by a road game against a rested Bucks team and the Celtics pulled the starters out of the game by halftime. They’ve beat 2 of the top 3 teams in the West already, lost by 2 to the Nuggets. In a 7 game series, with everyone healthy, the Celtics are the best bet to win the NBA Finals. They have been in the Eastern Conference Finals or Finals in 5 of the last 7 years. Tatum and Brown are growing up, they have the experience, and they’ve got Porzingis, Holiday, and White playing at an elevated level. It’s their time. Celtics win the 2024 Finals.


The Dodgers have had some disappointing finishes to impressive seasons in recent years sooooo they just spent more money to build the ultimate team. It’s not fair but I mean no one is beating this team if they stay healthy. First off, you’ve got Mookie Betts (8th in avg), Freddie Freeman (3rd in avg), Shohei Ohtani (10th in avg & 4th in HR), Max Muncy (10th in RBI), Will Smith with a solid supporting cast. Their rotation lines up Tyler Glasnow (4 straight winning seasons with TB Rays, imagine what he will do with the run support he will get from this Dodgers lineup), Yamamoto (Top P free agent addition), Bobby Miller (11-4 as rookie last year), Walker Buehler (30-8 last 2 full healthy seasons), and Clayton Kershaw (old and probably going to get hurt but he’s had 14 straight winning seasons). Solid bullpen with Graterol, Phillips, Kelly, and Brasier. Postseason experience for the pen guys as well. No one is going to beat the Dodgers if they stay healthy.
