Dallas Mavericks to Win
These two teams are going in opposite directions, but I still like the Mavericks in this one. The Mavs are 8-3 at home, meanwhile, the Warriors are 2-9 on the road. Luka gets back in the win column. Mavericks to win!
The Parlay Kid
Tampa Bay Lightning/Boston Bruins under 6.5
The Lightning played in a high-scoring affair last night and tonight will have number one goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy in net. On the second night of a back-to-back, the Lightning will look to slow the pace down against the best team in hockey, the Boston Bruins. Vasilevskiy played poorly against the Bruins just a week ago and will rebound with a big effort to help keep this game under.
Iran has 4 goals in this World Cup and the offense just hasn't been there for the United States (just 1 goal in their first 2 matches). The Iranians can move on to the round of 16 with just a draw and I think they will be focused more on that. The USA will have a really hard time getting to 2 goals if they give up just 1 in this match. In the USA's last 5 matches played they have only 2 total goals. Also, in the USA's last 8 matches versus teams in this year's field in the WC, the Americans have a total of 1 goal scored (this WC against Wales). The USA on determination and grit finds a way to put one in the net but Iran will as well and we wind up with a juicy +230 draw.
George Pickens under 3.5 receptions
Pickens is a talented rookie but the price of -151 on over 3.5 receptions is to much for this Steeler. Pickens has reached 4 receptions just twice in his last 5 contests and just 4 times in 10 total games this season.
New Jersey Devils to Win
This has been some start to the season for the Devils. They have won 18 of their last 20 games. I’m surprised at the Rangers start to the season, but they have just not been consistent. They have lost 4 of their last 5 home games. Give me the red-hot Devils.
The Parlay Kid
George Pickens longest reception over 18.5 yards
Pickens has gone over this number in six out of his last nine games and he and quarterback Kenny Pickett are getting more comfortable by the week with each other. Playing in the cozy confines of Lucas Oil Stadium will also help. Let’s keep it rolling.
The Parlay Kid
Lamar Jackson over 52.5 yards rushing
Jackson averages over 66 yards rushing per game and has gone over this total in seven out of his last nine games. The Ravens opponent, the Jacksonville Jaguars, have had some problems containing opposing quarterbacks, including the Giants Daniel Jones, who ran for over 100 yards against them.
2-Team 7-Point Teaser: Jacksonville Jaguars +10.5, Miami Dolphins -7
The Jags have been in every game this season and have yet to lose by more than 10 points. Houston, “we certainly do have a QB problem”. The Texans have a new QB plus numerous offensive issues and they should consider themselves lucky if the Dolphins don’t hang 40 in them.
Germany/Spain 1st Half Draw
So far, a large portion of the matches has been 0-0 at half. Teams have been very conservative in starting matches. The 1st half draw has been an excellent bet for me so far.
