NCAAB February 1st

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

22-18 on NCAAB in 2018 up 10.31 units

Gonzaga -18 for 2 units. Gonzaga has not been playing as well as they were earlier in the season. This may be one of their toughest games in the conference outside of St. Mary’s. I just think San Diego will struggle to score and not be able to stop Gonzaga – not a good combo. Gonzaga has to win these games if they want to pass SMC. San Diego has been bas against the spread lately.

Portland -3 for 2 units. Pepperdine fade. Pepperdine is just bad this year. Taking the home team with a small spread. The home team in this matchup has won 12 of the past 17 against the spread. Portland has a better defense and will enjoy this dip in competition after playing Saint Mary’s and Gonzaga.

Villanova -13 for 1 unit. Creighton will miss Martin Krampelj in this one. Villanova is the best team in the country for a reason. Jalen Brunson and Mikal Bridges have been solid all year and their unselfishness is fun to watch. A lot of points to cover against a better than expected Creighton team. Both these teams are good against the spread, but I trust ‘Nova in this one.


Hockey February 1st

1-1 in Hockey up 4.18 units

Finland Liiga

Lukko Jukurit over 4 at -129 for 3 units. The past 7 matches between these two teams have seen more than 4 goals. Lukko’s defense has been struggling after a good start to the season. Jukurit is actually in better form than Lukko so it is hard for me to get a read on who will win this game.

TPS Turku pk (+0) at +111 for 3 units.

Turku Pelicans Draw at +323 for 2 units. Turku has been one of the best away teams all season. Both these teams are in terrible form over the past 5 or 6 games. Turku won the last game at the Pelicans 4-1, but they were in better form then. 2 of the past 3 games have tied for the Pelicans at home. Turku may pull out the win, but I am hedging with the draw. I do not think the Pelicans will win. Tomi Kallio is 41, but he is still having a great season for Turku and is second in the league in both goals and assists. Take the team with the best player on the ice.

Snooker February 1st

2-1 in snooker up 1.65 units

Mark Williams ML for 3 units at -291. Mark has beaten Selt the the last 3 times they played. Selt lost to Chris Totten last week, Totten is not on the same level as Mark Williams. Selt did beat a good player in Mark Allen in his last matchup, but I think that was more Allen’s lack of concentration than Selt. Sorry for the high juice but I like this spot.

Jimmy Robertson ML for 2 unit at +105. Going to keep riding Jimmy here. He beat Gary Wilson last year, and is higher in the world rankings than Gary. I think this will be a very close match so I am taking the player with the winning history in this matchup along with the better odds.
