Soccer January 2nd

1-0 in soccer up 2.35 units

Tottenham Hotspur -1 for 3 units. Swansea has lost to Everton, Manchester United, and Liverpool by a combined 11 goals and the Spurs are of that caliber if not better. Spurs have beat Southampton and Burnley by 3 recently and I think they win this game by 2. Spurs tied 0-0 with Swansea last time these teams met and I do no think Swansea can hold the Spurs scoreless for 180 minutes.

West Ham ML + West Ham Draw for 3 units each. Two bottom tier teams, but West Ham has been in better form getting 8 points from their last 5 games, while West Brom has only 3 points in the same span. These teams tied in both 2017 meetings and I think we see more of the same here. West Brom are not even scoring a goal a game this season and I expect them to struggle here again.

Manchester City -1.5 for 2 units. De Bruyne being out worries me, but I think Sterling and Aguero will be enough. Manchester City has not even tied a game at home since August and have outscored Watford 11-0 in their past two meetings. Watford has only 3 points in their last 5 games and Manchester City has 13 in that same span. Take the league leaders to get back on the winning track.

NBA January 2nd

18-16-1 on NBA in 2017 up 7.22 units

3-0 in 2018 up 5.58 units

Suns -2 for 3 units. Suns have Devin Booker back and I think they match up well against the Hawks. Hawks are not a good road team and I think they lose this game by more than 2. Greg Monroe has been good down low for the suns and T.J. Warren is adding some solid consistent scoring. Look for the Hawks to lose their 7th straight road game.

Hornets ML for 3 units. Kemba, Frank Kaminsky, and Jeremy Lamb have all been playing well of late and Dwight Howard down low is a good counter to Zach Randolph. In the Kings recent wins Zach Randolph plays well and I do not see that happening here. Hornets are closer to last place in the league than a playoff spot and struggle on the road, but I think they pull this one out.

Clippers -5 for 3 units. Clippers are hot so ride them. They should have Austin Rivers back for this one. I hate Austin Rivers, but he does add some scoring support. Blake Griffin is still a beast and will be too much for the struggling Grizzlies to handle. Clippers have been playing great at home lately and I think that continues. Grizzlies beat the Clippers in their last game together and I expect the Clippers to get some revenge here. the Grizz don’t even average 100 points a game and I think the Clippers will want to keep this winning going to get into the playoff seeds.

NCAAB January 2nd

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

1-0 in 2018

TCU +0 for 3 units. Baylor has lost to every good team they have played this year. TCU is a good team that barely lost to Oklahoma and Trae Young. TCU has a well balanced fun to watch offense that should overpower Baylor. Baylor is not that great against the spread at home and TCU has a good road record against the spread. TCU does not have the best defense, but against an average Baylor offense they should do enough for the victory.

Kansas -7 for 2 units. Texas Tech has not won an away game all year and I think they will struggle tonight for Kansas. Kansas has been drilling 3s at a school record pace and I think they fall tonight at home. Texas Tech has one of the better defenses in the BIG 12, but I do not think it will be enough to slow down Kansas in Phog Allen.
