NBA Friday

61-53-2 on NBA in 2018 up 9.28 units

19-19-2 on NBA this season down 9.99 units

Warriors couldn’t pull out a win against the Jazz and the Timberwolves lost my parlay in overtime in what was an 18 unit swing. Trailer Park Boys taught me that “that is just the way she goes” sometimes. Like some spots tonight..

Pistons +4.5 for 4 units. Charlotte has already beat the Pistons twice this season, but I like Detroit here. Charlotte hates being above .500 it seems and this win would put them there. Drummond and Griffin play well against Zeller, Marvin Williams, and MKG. I like the Pistons here because of the healthy Reggie Bullock. Bullock made 7 threes last time out. He is hot. Pistons got dominated on the free throw line in their last loss to Charlotte. I love the Hornets, but I don’t trust them beating any team 3 times in a row.

Magic -2 for 4 units. Bulls suck.

Kings at -127 for 4 units. Grizzlies have lost 4 in a row and Kings have looked good this season. Buddy Hield is a year older than we thought he was.. Would the Kings have traded Boogie if this info was known? Who knows. I do know that it doesn’t matter if Buddy is 25 or 26 because he has improved every year he has been in the league. I’d take him on my team for an expiring Boogie contract. Grizzlies are banged up. Good spot for Sacramento to get back to winning.

College Basketball Starts to Heat Up

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

4-7-1 this season down 1.95 units

Butler/Cal/Charleston/LSU Parlay risking 4 units to win 3.64 units. Kamar Baldwin and Butler have been solid to start the season. UC Irvine are 11-2, but Hinkle Fieldhouse is not an easy place to play. Butler has beat Florida and Ole Miss this season. Butler is favored by 10, which is about right, but I like them to win straight up at home. Cal hasn’t looked good this season, but luckily for them, they play a bad San Jose St team at home tonight. LSU plays #24 Furman tonight at home. LSU is coming off a good win vs Saint Mary’s. Furman beat Villanova earlier this year. LSU will be ready for them. Charleston is 5-1 at home, while Coastal Carolina is 1-4 on the road.

Two Top Bundesliga Teams Meet

87-69-8 on Soccer since World Cup up 23.56 units

Dortmund at -183 for 4 units. No not Bayern. League Leaders Dortmund welcome second place Monchengladbach to the Westfalenstadion. Dortmund lost midweek, but they didn’t start Sancho or Alcacer. Once, Sancho and Alcacer came on, Dortmund looked the better team. The lineup Favre put out, wasn’t the best in that game against Dusseldorf. Dortmund will play their strongest lineup today. Pulisic struggled midweek and I hope he plays better if he gets another start. Thorgan Hazard and Plea have been playing great for Monchengladbach, but Dortmund’s offense is more explosive at home. Should be a fun match to watch..

Bowl Season Continues

46-34 on College Football this season up 29.13 units

You know it is Bowl Season when FIU plays Toledo at noon on a Friday in the Bahamas. I love it.

Toledo -7 at -105 for 2 units.

Toledo/FIU over 57 for 4 units. Toledo scores over 41 points a game. The Rockets have scored over 50 in their last 2. FIU tends to pass the ball more than they run. FIU will be without their starting QB as Butch David didn’t want to risk further injury. Davis said, “If the bowl game was another week or 10 days” he would have played. Sounds like Butch is throwing major shade at his team for not making the college football playoff… Nah but seriously, Toledo is going to run it up. Cody Thompson, Diontae Johnson and Jon’Vea Johnson are all good wideouts for Toledo. FIU is 1-4 in games where their opponent scores more than 25 points.

BYU -10 at -150 for 2 units. Smurf Turf Blue Field time. BYU wins easily. Zach Wilson is solid. BYU has already lost on this field this season against Boise, but the get a win here.
