College Basketball – Roy Williams Signs 8 Year Extension

70-62-2 on NCAAB last season and went up 8.95 units

3-7-1 this season down 13.91 units

Roy and his 3 National Championships in Chapel Hill are staying 8 more years. He will make a little less than 3 million a year before sponsorships and other bonuses. Roy will be 77 when this contract runs out. Roy is a top 3 coach in college basketball and UNC should keep him as long as he wants to coach. Matt Doherty is not missed.

Wild parlay tonight. I can’t seem to win in college basketball this season like I can in other sports, but here’s to getting it back in one swoop. Feeling Lucky. All Money Lines.

Old Dominion/Virginia/Mississippi St/Arizona/Texas A&M/Cincy/Fresno St Parlay risking 3 units to win 11.96 units. UVA’s defense will be too much for South Carolina. Old Dominion is just better than Richmond. ODU has beat Syracuse and VCU. Richmond just lost to Oral Roberts. Valparaiso will struggle with Texas A&M’s size. Wofford has only lost Kansas, UNC, and Oklahoma this season, but Mississippi State’s defense will be too much for Wofford on the road. Montana hasn’t won an away game all year and now they travel to Arizona… UCLA hasn’t played a road game all year and now they travel to Cincy… Cal isn’t that great this season and Fresno is 5-0 at home. Fresno also has more size and better shooting.

If I had to pick one out that will lose, it would be Mississippi State because Wofford has played better teams tough, but I like them all.

NBA Wednesday – Warriors Begin To Turn It On

61-53-2 on NBA in 2018 up 9.28 units

19-17-2 on NBA this season down 2.99 units

Warriors -3 at +112 for 4 units. Warriors have won 2 in a row (although their win against the Kings was too close for comfort). Jazz play the Warriors tough. Both teams are 14-17 ATS this season. Curry is shooting the ball lights out and that continues tonight. Jazz have lost 4 of 5 and only shot 35% over their last two. Jazz don’t have the offense to keep up. Boogie Cousins should be back at the start of February, but the Warriors are 6-2 since Steph’s return. They win another tonight.

T’Wolves/Bucks/Blazers Parlay risking 4 units to win 5.74 units. Timberwolves are 12-4 at home and 2-12 on the road. This game against the Pistons is in Minnesota. The Bucks will be going against the Pelicans, who will be without Payton, Randle and Mirotic. Bucks are 13-3 at home. Pelicans are 4-11 away. Bucks have lost 3 in a row vs the Pelicans, that changes tonight. Trail Blazers lost to Memphis earlier this season. They will get their revenge tonight. Mike Conley isn’t 100% although he will prolly play. Lillard. McCollum, and Nurkic have all been playing well (they all had more than 20 last time out at the Clippers). Blazers have to win these home games to make the playoffs in the closely contested West.

Bundesliga and EFL Cup

84-68-8 on Soccer since World Cup up 18.62 units

RB Leipzig +2 at -185 for 7 units. Bayern Munich have been finding some better form, but they haven’t been playing anybody great in their recent wins. Leipzig have one of the best defenses in all of Europe so far this season. Leipzig have kept a clean sheet in 7 of 15 league matches this season. Leipzig won 2-1 last time they met. Timo Werner has scored 3 goals in his last 3 meetings against Bayern. Werner also scored twice over the weekend. Yussuf Poulsen has been in fine form for Leipzig this season as well. +2 is way too much for a top-4-Bundesliga clash. Lewandowski, Muller, Kimmich, Alaba, and others are all great, but I like this spot.

Eintracht Frankfurt at +120 for 2 units. Frankfurt are one of my favorite teams to watch in Europe. Today they go on the road against injury-riddled Mainz. Frankfurt have not won in their last 10 trips to the Opel Arena. That has a good chance of changing today. Luka Jovic and Sebastien Haller are deadly going forward for Frankfurt. Mainz have struggled keeping clean sheets this season and today will be no different.

Chelsea at -277 for 3 units. Bournemouth are in terrible form. Chelsea could field a weak lineup, but as long as Pedro, Willian, and/or Hazard play I like them. These are the types of games where Giroud shines.

Tottenham to advance at +104 for 2 units. Tottenham went up on Arsenal last time they met at halftime (due to an undeserved PK), but Arsenal turned it on in the second half and won. Arsenal’s defense has injury concerns that don’t include Rob Holding being out for the year. Harry Kane will score. Arsenal’s defensive issues that showed in their loss to Southampton continue here.
