37-28-1 in soccer up 1.59 units
Leicester -1 for 2 unit at -112. Sheffield United has not been good on the road lately and Leicester will look forward to getting back to King Power after a 5-1 beat down by Manchester City. The Mahrez drama has slowed Leicester’s season a little, but they will still want to get to Wembley for the FA cup final.
On a side note: Have you all seen these Donald Trump FA Cup round commercials. They really outdid themselves with this 5th round commercial. “VAR – very amazing referees.” and another gem “Look at these bad walls, disappointing […] no balls through my walls” Pretty damn good.

Finland – Sm Liiga
Pelicans pk for 3 units at +104. Neither one of these teams have any players competing in the Pyeongchang Olympics. Hameenlinna has only scored 9 goals in the last 5 games to go along with one of the worst home records in the league. The Pelicans have actually been pretty good on the road. Pelicans are in better form, although both are on losing streaks. I’m taking the value play here.
SaiPa Vaasan Sport over 5 for 2 units at -117. Vaasan Sport have been letting in goals on goals and SaiPa should be able to put 4 goals up on their own.
SaiPa pk for 2 units at -180. Once again, neither one of these have important players competing in the Olympics. This is a Vaasan Sport fade. Vaasan has been in some of the worst form in the league and this high juice is indicative of that. SaiPa have won their last 3 games as well.
Lukko pk for 1 unit at +108. Lukko has lost their last 3 home games, but won their last game 4-1 against the Pelicans. These teams are in similar form, Jyvaskyla has the better offense, but Lukko has the better defense. I could see this game going to overtime, but Jyvaskyla did give up 6 goals their last time out against a team of lesser quality than Lukko.
NHL – OT included
Carolina Hurricanes ML for 1 unit at -165. Islanders fade. Islanders are on the second night of a back 2 back and have to travel south to North Carolina overnight. Cam Ward should be back in goal for the Hurricanes as they gave up 5 goals without him in their last game. Ward is 5-1-1 in his last seven games played. Cam is 12 years removed from winning the Stanley Cup with the Canes as a rookie, but he is still the best goalie they have in my opinion.

33-34 on NCAAB in 2018 down 3.13 units
Rhode Island -1 for 3 units. This may be a sucker bet, just like Ohio State +1 was last night, but I am going to bet it. Rhode Island won the first game between these two by 14. This line may be so low because it is a home game for St. Bonaventure and they have won 7 in a row. I just think Rhode Island has a better defense and that showed in the first matchup. Rhode Island held St. Bonaventure to 38% shooting in the first meeting. The Rams also out-rebounded The Bonnies in that game. Rhode Island is not getting the national recognition they deserve because of the “mid-major” conference they play in. I’ll take the best team in the conference on a 16 game win streak with a low spread.
