VIP Picks 6/6/24

2-1 day yesterday to turn the week on the right direction now a 4-0 Thursday will be a leap forward into the weekend for us! 


Celts in 5 🍀 


MLB:

7:05 EST

Yankees (-140) 4️⃣

  • The Yankees have taken the first 2 games of this series and they have another good matchup today.

  • They will face Twins starting pitcher Pablo Lopez who they come in hitting .323 against in a large sample size of about 100 at bats.

  • Marcus Stroman is going to pitch for the Yankees and he’s been dealing as of late with a 1.91 ERA over the last month and he’s gone 6+ innings in 4 straight starts.

  • Good price to back the Yankees to win straight up tonight. 


Cross Sport:

8:10 EST

Parlay

Red Sox ML / Celtics ML (+102) 🥇

  • Oh yeah we don’t take these much any more but my Boston guys will enjoy the Boston parlay tonight with good matchups for both teams.

  • Starting with the Red Sox, they will face the White Sox who are riding a 13 game losing streak. The Red Sox will also have Tanner Houck pitching who ranks 3rd in the league with his 1.85 ERA.

  • The Celtics will be home for Game 1 of the Finals tonight and they are at full strength with Porzingis back. 

  • Boston went 2-0 vs Dallas this season with wins of 119-110 and 138-110.


NBA:

8:30 EST

Celtics (-6.5) 🥉

  • A double dip if you’re taking the one above but I know a lot of you will just be looking for a straight play. 

  • The Celtics covered -6.5 in both of the regular season games against the Mavs winning 138-110 and 119-110 with 28 and 16 point leads being the biggest leads in those games.

  • Luka and Kyrie played and had big games in both of those games so sure they are going to get theirs again tonight but the Celtics as a team first unit and second unit are the better team in this series.

  • More than 70% of the bettors are on the Mavs to cover tonight which makes me like this even more. 

  • Don’t forget that the Celtics are getting Porzingis back tonight who’s been out the last two series with a calf injury. 

  • Game 1s at home have been pretty good to the Cs during this run with a 20 point, 25 point, and historic last second come back and overtime win.

  • The media have been talking so negatively about the Celtics this whole playoff run and all talking up the Mavs for this series but the sportsbooks are probably paying them off to limit the damage they take on one of the most dominant teams in NBA history. Celts big tonight and Celts in 5 for the series.


8:00 EST

Player Prop

Derrick White Block (-180) 🥈

  • Yeah it’s pretty juicy at -180 on DK for a guy to get a block. But if you take away the thought of betting on a blocked shot and look at the trends for this it’s actually pretty good value. I’ll risk 1 unit on it.

  • White has recorded at least 1 block in 10 of his 14 playoff games (71%) and he’s had 7 blocks in his last 2 games.

  • He’s a pest on defense and he gets a lot of chase down blocks as well.

  • I’m just out here trying to pump out winners in the NBA Finals and I feel pretty good about this play in Game 1 tonight.
