NCAAB January 1st

15-10-1 on NCAAB in 2017 up 5.25 units

WVU -2 for 2 units is my only play today. Kansas State shot lights out vs Iowa State, but West Virginia has a better defense than Iowa State. WVU will crash the boards and win on the free throw line. Huggins is coaching against his old team and I think he will want this win more than others. WVU has a balanced offense that will wear Kansas State down. Final score 75-70 for West Virginia. Same score Bruce Weber’s Illinois team lost to UNC by in the 2005 national title.

NBA January 1st

18-16-1 on NBA in 2017 up 7.22 units

Starting a new record with the new year.

Nets ML -134 for 2 units. Reverse Line Movement.

Timberwolves -10 for 2 units. Lakers have looked awful in their last 5 games. Lonzo was not playing great, but he at least gave the Laker offense an identity. Lonzo is out and the Timberwolves have been looking better since Jimmy Butler has been shooting more. The Timberwolves beat the Lakers by 17 on Christmas in the Staples Center and I expect more of the same here for them at home.

Blazers +1 for 2 units. Dolla Damn should be back for this one after he worked out in conditioning drills on Sunday. Napier played well in Lilliard’s absence, but it will be nice for the Blazers to get their star back. I know the Bulls have been playing better and the Blazers just struggled against a bad Hawks team, but I like the Blazers here. They are just the better team and should be able to outshoot the Bulls on the way to a win.
