Hockey January 31st

Finland Liiga.

Jyvaskyla ML (+184) and Jyvaskyla to tie (+309) both for two units. Only one of these needs to win for positive money. Jyvaskyla played yesterday so they could be winded, but Tappara has been bad in 2018. Jyvaskyla has been in great form over the past 5 games and have one of the best away records in the league. Jyvasklya has 3 top 10 scorers in the league, while Tappara does not have a top 20 scorer. Take the better team at plus odds.

Tennis January 31st

Diyas ML for 3 units. Diyas beat Niculescu 2-0 on a hardcourt in Cincinnati last year. Diyas just beat a decent player in Blinkova 2-0. Niculescu only won one game on her serve the last time these two played and I like Diyas’s breaking ability. I think Diyas must have a read or tip on her opponents serve, I like this spot.

Kozlova Kateryna ML for 3 units. Koslova beat Duan in Duan’s home country 2-0 last time they played on a hard court. Duan lost more games on her serve than she won in their most recent meeting. In that same meeting Kozlova held her serve well. I think Kateryna is going to have a strong 2018. Best of luck.

NBA January 30th

18-16-1 on NBA in 2017 up 7.22 units

15-14 on NBA in 2018 down 7.18 units

Jazz Warriors over 217 for 5 units. Warriors scored 126 points in the first meeting between these two teams. This over under is low because the Jazz try to slow the game down, but that does not really work against the Warriors. Warriors over hit against the Celtics and I think it will hit here too. Steph has been hot lately and the Jazz defense has not been as good as it was last year.

Warriors ML for 4 units at -380. Heavy juice but they won’t lose to the Jazz.

 

 

NCAAB January 30th

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

20-14-1 on NCAAB in 2018 up 16.47 units

Had a push last time out with Clemson winning by exactly 2. Lot of college basketball tonight and I like a lot of spots. Let’s get back to winning money.

North Carolina -1 for 3 units. Buying a half point here. UNC beat Clemson by 8 earlier in the season. UNC played horrible perimeter defense against North Carolina State and got out-hustled by Virginia Tech in their last two losses. Clemson has lost Donte Grantham and he was one of their few advantages against UNC. I think Roy and his boys will realize they need to play a lot better after losing to their rival from Raleigh. I just can’t see UNC losing 3 in a row. Joel Berry, Luke Maye, Cameron Johnson, and Kenny Williams will do enough for UNC to win this one.

Rhode Island -9 for 2 units. Umass has lost 4 in a row and Rhode Island has won 12 in a row. Rhode Island has one of the more polarizing coaches in college basketball in Dan Hurley. Umass gives up more points than they score – that’s not good. Rhode Island has one of the better defenses in the A-10 and I think they run away with this one after their close win against Duquesne. The Minutemen have been struggling and that is not a good place to be against the best team in the league.

Auburn -4 for 2 units. Auburn is 14-5 against the spread this season, and I still do not think they are getting the respect from Vegas. Auburn just blew out a good LSU team, while Ole Miss lost to Texas. Auburn scores 8 more points a game than Ole Miss and has a better defense. Take the better team. Best of luck.

 

 

 

Soccer January 30th

27-16-1 on soccer up 3.38 units

West Ham +0.5 for 3 units at -170. West Ham has a lot of injury concerns with Winston Reid, Arnautovic, Lanzini, Jose Fonte, Sakho, and others missing this game. I like a home underdog though against a bottom of the table team. West Ham still has some talent with Chicharito, Zabaleta, and Kouyate. Crystal Palace has only 7 goals in 12 away matches on the season. They also only have 6 goals in their last 5 games. Crystal Palace also has many injury concerns. West Ham may be fielding a weaker squad, but I still like them at home.

Liverpool ML for 3 units at -310. Huddersfield have not won any of their last 6 games in the league. Liverpool have struggled in their last two games, but I think they can pull this one out. Huddersfield lost 4-1 against West Ham in their last home premier league game, and Liverpool is a lot better than West Ham. Salah is just too good. Huddersfield does not even score a goal a game and Klopp will want his squad to get a clean sheet. Best of luck.
