It was 70 degrees in Pennsylvania today so I’ve had a Summer mindset all day. I can’t wait for warm weather to be back, I’m starting to get beach withdrawals, and all of a sudden this pops up on my timeline. I don’t want one of these tho, I NEED one of these. This thing is the closest humanity has come to inventing a commercial hovercraft and at only $6,000 it’s pretty reasonably priced.
The Flyride even has an automatic barrel-roll button
AT THE TOUCH OF A BUTTON
How about the balls on that little kid riding backwards and standing up
LETS FUCKING GOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Shoutout to anyone who decided to ride with me Friday night, you’re welcome. The Money line stays red-hot, the parlay remains profitable, and the over/under is warming up, but I still can’t pick a spread correctly if I had a gun to my head.
Straight Pick (Money Line): (3-0-0)
-160 Vegas Golden Knights (39-15-4) vs. Anaheim Ducks (29-20-11)
With a win tonight Vegas breaks the record for most home wins by an expansion team (Passing the ’79 Hartford Whalers) so it’s a big night in Sin City. Tonight is also the conclusion of their four-game series with the Ducks who they beat in the first three meetings.
Straight Pick (Spread): (0-3-0)
+2 Maryland (18-11,7-9) vs. Northwestern (15-13,6-9)
REALLY need a win for the spread column tonight, this one is a coin toss of a game so I decided to fade the public.
Over 140 Miami Hurricanes @ Notre Dame
Using the model again since it won me some money Friday night.
Under 6 Ottawa Senators @ Nashville Predators
Under 5½ LA Kings @ Chicago Blackhawks
Both unders are favored at -120 and based on my eye test (I have great vision) I’d say it’s justified.
Disappointing turn out last night, but the money line is staying hot as the Flames back up goaltender David Rittich was able to keep the Preds to 3 goals and secure the one-point victory. Huston upset Cincinnati despite not scoring for minutes at a time. Team USA Hockey pulled out the win but failed to cover against Slovakia sinking the parlay to a 1-1-0 record.
Straight Pick (Money Line): (2-0-0)
-140 Dallas Stars (33-20-4) vs. St. Louis Blues (34-21-4)
With an opportunity to tie the third-place Blues at 72 points in the Central Division, expect Dallas to bring the noise and take advantage of being on home ice.
Straight Pick (Spread): (0-2-0)
-1½ Carolina Hurricanes (27-22-9) vs. NY Islanders (28-25-6)
The Isles have only won two out of seven games in the month of February and the Canes look to bounce back after dropping a game in New Jersey.
Over 144 Princeton @ Columbia
Took this pick from a model* I’ve been working on, and if it’s calculations are correct the score should be between 148 and 151.
* I threw some numbers in an excel spreadsheet and did simple math
-145 Canisius Golden Griffins (18-9,12-2) @ Monmouth Hawks (9-17,5-9)
+100 Georgia Southern (16-10,7-6) vs. Georgia State (19-7,10-3)
Not really sure why these picks stood out to me, they just looked like winners. Canisius is a weird little school, they’re mediocre at best in most sports but the Griffins always tend to grab better’s interest.
Not a terrible night for your boy yesterday, winning the money line and parlay. Looking to pad my record tonight, and with a healthy slate of hockey and college hoops, there was a lot to choose from.
Straight Pick (Money Line): (1-0-0)
+160 Calgary Flames (29-20-8) @ Nashville Predators (34-12-9)
Nashville is coming off a wild OT win against St. Louis but I don’s see the same energy being replicated tonight. Flames goaltender Mike Smith won’t be suiting up due to a lower-body injury but the high scoring Calgary offense should be able to compensate.
Straight Pick (Spread): (0-1-0)
-4 Cincinnati5 (23-2,12-0) @ Huston (19-5,9-3)
Cinci is looking to continue dominating the American conference and I don’t think Huston is strong enough to stop it.
Over 161½ Arizona Wildcats17 @ Arizona State25
I love betting overs on big rivalry games where I have no dog in the fight. Not because they win all the time, they don’t, but because it’s more fun to root for big plays and scoring. Nobody wants to watch a defensive basketball game.
-1½ USA Men’s Hockey vs. Slovakia Men’s Hockey
Under 5½ Goals Same Game
Every true American should love Olympic hockey, no other event in the Winter Olympics can compete with the levels of patriotism and national pride carried by hockey.
Expect Team USA to bounce back against Slovakia after losing 3-2 to Slovenia. (I have no idea where these countries would be on a map, I’m a blogger not a scientist)
Disclaimer: I am a terrible gambler and don’t follow basketball enough to be knowledgeable about the games, so this time of year is usually rough on my wallet. Ride or Fade me, I don’t really care but do so at your own risk.
Straight Pick (Money Line):
-165 Oklahoma City (32-26) @ Memphis Grizzlies (18-37)
Kind of seems like a no-brainer which is why I’m almost certain Memphis will win but OKC is the pick.
Straight Pick (Spread): Lock of the Night
+13 USF (8-18,1-12) @ UCF (15-9,6-6)
USF covered last time they were 13 point underdogs on the road so based purely on that information I’m making this the official Lock of the Night.
Over 5.5 Montreal Canadiens @ Colorado Avalanche
Montreal looks to play heart breaker again and are gonna snap the Avs’ ten game home wining streak. Even in their last two losses the Canadiens have been putting up goals, final score prediction 4-3 Montreal.
-265 Philadelphia 76’ers vs. Miami Heat
Over 201½ Same Game
I didn’t do any research on this pick just a an eye test.
