DailyPicks for Sat. Jan 17'th

3-1 ATS yesterday..hit on Orlando (3*) hit on Mil (2*) hit on Mil over (1*)Lost on Detroit -2*

+3.8 units...been a banging week.

Back later with mine..GLTA

Early English Premier..half you clowns are still sleeping when these bad boys start playing:

Best Bet:

Wigan Athletic +195 game line (a tie is a push)

Wigan keeps hitting for me. I love Man City and Robinho, but I gotta go with the smart money. Incredible value on the tie line so all we need is a tie as a push or a win for 2:1 payout. Wigan keeps hittin for me, I can't get off the horse.

1* to win 2**

Newcastle/Blackburn under 2 1/2 -135

Love the under in this one. Cold weather and Newcastle plays very deliberately. Can't see these two teams lighting it up.

Risking 1.8 units to win 1.5 units

Aston Villa +105 a tie is a loss

Villa is playing for a top 5 spot in the EPL and the riches that comes with finishing top 5. These are 3 points they have to have against Sunderland today.

2 units to win 2.1 units on AV to win in 90 minutes.

Back later with hoops. I'll post UFC picks in UFC thread. It goes off this afternoon at 2:00 PM CST from the UK

    Here's my hoops card:

    11:00 AM CST tip:

    Missouri Valley:

    Northern Iowa @ Drake:

    I'm rollin the under 126 1/2.

    Here's why, let's look at past matchups on paper:


    Date Matchup Line Total ATS Result

    02/16/08 Drake 65 @ Northern Iowa 55 DRAKE -2 127.0 DRAKE/U

    01/26/08 Northern Iowa 54 @ Drake 58 DRAKE -9.0 122.0 NIOWA/U

    02/08/07 Drake 67 @ Northern Iowa 59 NIOWA -7.5 137.0 DRAKE/U

    01/27/07 Northern Iowa 61 @ Drake 74 NIOWA -2 XX DRAKE/

    Both teams have a lot of new starters and both teams play great defense. Drake does like to run and gun, and that's one reason I'm not going large on this. As a valley fan, I can tell you this game usually is low scoring and tight as UNI and Drake are big rivals and very close to each other in the Midwest. Drake should win and cover, but I'm going to roll the under. In their last 4 games, UNI's defense is averaging 57.75points allowed..and that's against the offensive minded teams like Creighton and Mo State. Drake is allowing an average of 60 points even in their last 4..I personally believe as a former hooper that this is the time of year where conference is starting and defenses rule. You add those averages together and factor in the fact that they usually play slow ball and we have what looks like a low 20's total with No OT>

    2** on UNI/Drake under 126 1/2

    Big XII:

    12:30 PM CST

    I like ISU and Mizzou to keep it under 139 today. Both teams are playing very good defense even though Mizzou is running and gunning on both ends of the floor. ISU is a defensive first team..look at their last 10 and Mizzou's last 10:

    12/13/08 MURRAY 64 @ MISSOU 75 -18.5 XX L/U

    12/07/08 CAL 66 @ MISSOU 93 -7.5 W/

    Mizzou is scoring high, but can be slowed down like Nebraska did. Notice that total didn't even threaten the number and this is a very similar game. With Mizzou being such a big favorite (ISU usually covers at Mizzou as well winning once and losing by 5 in their last 2 games in Columbia) an ISU's propensity to hold teams to 70 or less..we should hit this one nicely. I like ISU as a side too but will only play the total and use ISU in parley filler.

    2** on Mizzou under 140

    Missouri Valley:

    Creighton @ WSU

    2:00 PM CST tip

    Yet another total. I'm rollin on Creighton/WSU under 130 1/2. The Jays are hot and need this win big time. But Wichita is a trap game sometimes (although not this year IMO) and it's usually a defensive struggle. You guys know I love the Valley and Creighton is my team, and I will tell you this from watching the Jays the last 15 years....we always struggle offensively in Kansas. This game should go way under the total unless Creighton builds a huge lead. But if it's a tight game like I expect, I can't see it being offensive. WSU will slow down Creighton and play their new matchup zone to neutralized Stinnett's slashing and their outside bombers. Caleb Korver is the third brother in a long line who play in the Midwest, but I think he and the rest of the 3point bombers are going to have trouble today in Wichita.

    3*** on Creighton/WSU under 130 1/2 (what I just booked at this morning..lots of movement..going up right now in favor of us)

    Big XII:

    1:00 PM CST tip

    I'm finally playing a side, and it's a dog. Roll with me on Texas A and M to take it to Oklahoma at home this afternoon. The Sooners are my darkhorse to play UNC in the national championship, but this has trap written all over it. A and M is a good team that plays solid at home. They are riding high after beating #21 Baylor and they can get in the top 25 with a win against Oklahoma. This game is going to be a war and I really look forward to watching it. Here' s some numbers for ya:

    92% of pub on Oklahoma

    Oklahoma has lost (badly) their last 2 trips to College Station.

    A and M has beaten Bama, Baylor, LSU and some other notable. Oklahoma looked great beating Texas at home, but I think we see a great opportunity here. A and M is going to be jacked for this game. A win and their in the top 25 and fighting for the Big XII title. Should be a great game.

    2** on Texas A and M +4

    GL today...3-1 or better and I'll post on the NBA tonight, but after looking at that card I'm gonna focus on college and the futbol and UFC I got going. Got a lot of bets today, but playing with house money and I like all of them. BEWARE: I've had a pretty good week, let's hope it doesn't get ugly, but I do like these plays.

    Let's Roll

    1-2 last post (and STL covered, but I didn’t play…obviously)

    Drexel/UNCW U140.5

    UNCW had a couple games early where they scored a bunch of points (first 3: 108, 107, 88), so they avg 74ppg. Last 5 though they are averaging 62. Unders are 4-1 in CAA games. They do give up a lot of points, but Drexel can’t score (60ppg for the year, 58 L5). Drexel also plays D, giving up under 60ppg L5. In CAA games, unders are 5-0-1, and lots of those totals were set in the low 120’s. This is my Best Bet.

    ODU/VCU O131.5

    Grant was pissed after last game at Towson, so I expect an energetic showing in front of the sold-out crowd. I think Rodriguez and Maynor will push the tempo and VCU’s full court pressure will hopefully lead to some easy baskets both ways. ODU hasn’t scored fewer than 67 in the last 10 meetings, and the last 11 match-ups have gone Over. ODU has given up 61+ points only once in the last 10 games, but I think VCU’s tempo should get them 70 at home today. Also, they don’t usually lose at home and last year ODU beat them in Richmond, so VCU will probably be a little more motivated than usual (esp with Grant unhappy too). They have both played mostly Unders in CAA games, but I’m going Over in this one.

    Also going out of A-10/CAA to MAAC for Fairfield +3. This is Siena’s 3rd straight road game (played away Thur) and they have only covered one of their last six games. Stags have won 4 straight, are 5-0 at home, and are already down 2 games in the standings to Siena (7-0 v 5-2). They need this win at home to keep pace, esp since they lost to Siena earlier this year, 87-81.

    Mich St 1H -4, system play.

    9-5 ATS

    3-2 ATS as underdog

    Sorry Rook- gotta go against ya' in this one!

    Illinois hasn't really played anyone (outside of U of M) of note. The Spartans have been having a tough time putting teams away when they have them on the ropes. I see this changing today with a big blowout victory after surviving a comeback vs. Penn St. on the road in their last game. Izzo is really putting an emphasis on putting teams away and I think they get it done in a big way today vs. a confident, but unproven Illinois team in my opinion. Add the fact that Michigan State is retiring Mo' Pete's # today and it all adds up to a big blowout at the Breslin Center for the Spartans.

    You may say this is a "homer" play as I bleed Green and White, but I do know my team in and out and I love them today in this spot!

    This is a 5* play for me!
