VIP Picks 3/23/24

1-2 with a JACKHAMMER loss sucks and both of our losses came by 2 points each yesterday. The bubble waqs going to pop at some point but it sucks it had to be the big bet it popped on. We are still up 3.66 units on the week going into Saturday so a bit of a set back but in reality we are still having a great week. We are starting today with 3 early plays and we will look to go 3-0 then add plays for the night slate. 


12:45 EST


Arizona ML / North Carolina ML (-110) 🥇

  • Both these teams played like the top seeds they are in their first round games scoring 85 & 90 points.

  • Arizona will take on Davidson and it feels like a game Arizona could really run away with. I think it could turn into a high scoring game and that favors Arizona.

  • I’m shocked to see the UNC only favored by 3.5 vs Mich St. 

  • I like the matchup for UNC because of their defense inside and I’m confident they will be able to make it tough for Mich St inside. 

  • I also trust the UNC offense (81.7) over Mich St (73) and UNC hits their free throws at 75.4% compared to Mich St 70.7%.

Team Total

Kansas Over (73.5) 🥉

  • Kansas scored 93 and shot 60% in their first round game, granted that was against Sanford but it was a fast paced and high scoring game for both sides. I think we will see that again today vs Gonzaga.

  • Kansas is without their top scorer but the scoring was well balanced from the Kansas starters so everyone contributed which led to good things. 

  • Gonzaga scored 86 in their first round game vs McNeese.

  • UConn, Purdue, & Kentucky all reached 73 vs Gonzaga this season. 

  • Kansas is the underdog here but it feels like they will get 73+ whether they win or lose.


1:00 EST

Jets (-135) 🥈

  • The Jets have started their road trip 2-1 with an impressive win over a good Rangers team.

  • They will face the Islanders today who have lost 6 in a row and all 6 of those losses have come by multiple goals.

  • Connor Hellebuyck is in net for the Jets and he ranks 2nd in the league with a 2.30 GA/A. He held the Islanders to 2 goals on 37 shots last time he faced them in a 4-2 win.

Iowa St ML / NC State ML (-115)

  • Iowa St is riding a 4 game winning streak with impressive wins vs Houston & Baylor along the way. Was St has beat Pac 12 teams late at night with no one watching and snuck by Drake in the 1st round. 

  • Iowa St has the 4th ranked defense and that’s going to be the game changer in this one.

  • NC State comes off of back to back great wins over Texas Tech and UNC. 

  • Oakland knocked off Kentucky but this 40 year old 6th year senior isn’t going to hit 10 threes again.

  • That with the fact that NC State will actually play defense and they should play good enough to advance.
