NBA October 24th – Lakers First Win with Lebron Tonight?

18-16-1 on NBA in 2017 up 7.22 units

61-53-2 on NBA in 2018 up 9.28 units

7-9-1 on NBA this season down 5.34 units

Hornets -5 for 4 units. No Kris Dunn, Lauri, or Denzel Valentine for the Bulls. Kemba Walker was just named Eastern Conference player of the week. He has been sizzling. Charlotte looked bad against Toronto, but they will pick it back up here.

Lakers at -200 for 2 units. Lebron won’t lose to the Suns right? His missed free throws, not guarding his man on the next San Antonio 3, and then missing the game winner was ugly.

Soccer October 24th – Champions League

44-31-5 on Soccer since World Cup up 23.37 units

Tottenham at +108 for 4 units. PSV haven’t won in their last 10 Champions League games. Hirving Lozano is in great form for PSV, scoring 3 in the last 2 games. Harry Kane is still Harry Kane though and Lamela has shown some class recently. Tottenham is 3rd in their group behind Inter and Barcelona and 6 points behind both. They have to win this one if they want to move on.

Dortmund pk -115 for for 4 units. Atletico have only won 2 of their last 6 away games. I still think Dortmund is the hottest team in Europe. Borussia has the second highest scoring rate in Europe’s top 5 leagues behind PSG. Atletico have not lost in 8 games, but traveling to Germany will be tough. Diego Simeone is one of my favorite coaches, but Dortmund’s attack will be too much. I could see this ending 1-1, but if a team wins, I think it will be Dortmund.

Tennis October 24th – Swiss Indoors and The Vienna Open

73-40-4 on tennis up 17.99 units

Gael Monfils at -150 for 2 units. If Monfils is fit he will win. He played 5 matches in Antwerp last week and has been retiring this season, but he is the better player than Steve Johnson. I can’t pass up this value.

Roberto Bautista-Agut at -317 for 4 units. Roberto has a 4-1 H2H lead on indoor hardcourts. Sousa has been in pitiful form besides Shanghai. I want to make this a max play, but Roberto has lost matches he just shouldn’t before..

Fabio Fognini at -163 for 6 units. Fognini won the only other H2H against Fucsovics in straight sets. It always take some balls betting big units on Fognini in back 2 back days, pero tengo huevos. I bet on Marton Fucsovics in the last round, but Fabio is too talented for him. Once again Fognini’s ankle is the only thing that keeps me from making this a max play. The Italian #1 has a good opportunity in this tournament to get his Italian record of 4 tournament wins in a season. Thiem and Anderson and the only two people in this tournament that can truly challenge him if he is healthy.
