Welcome back and happy Friday. Let's see if we can get the weekend started with some wins. We had another close call with our Thursday parlays, with the Brooklyn Nets letting us down in our NBA parlay. Below are my overall results from Thursday over at SportsPlays.
I have not been playing much these past few days due to being in a bit of a slump, especially in soccer, but I am going in big today and have 12 wagers lined up for soccer. I'll get into some of that in a moment, but let's look at my starting balance at SportsPlays heading into today before we get to the selections.
NHL Parlay - Jan 14 - Panthers, Wild, Avalanche - Parlay Odds +188
Only 3 games on the schedule tonight, but I like the look of them all, starting with the Florida Panthers at home to the Dallas Stars. The Stars won 6-5 in their previous meeting, but I like Florida on home ice.
Both meetings between the Wild and the Ducks have been close this season, but Minnesota prevailed in both. Let's take them for the regular season sweep.
The Arizona Coyotes killed our parlay a couple of days ago with a surprising win over Toronto, but I don't see lightning striking twice, so I am on Colorado at home.
NBA Parlay - Jan 14 - Hornets, Raptors Kings - Parlay Odds +123
The Charlotte Hornets are on a nice little streak at the moment, winning each of their last 4 games. I like them to continue rolling at home to the Orlando Magic.
While they are coming off a loss, the Toronto Raptors have won 7 of their last 10. They will be facing a Detroit Pistons team that has just 9 total wins on the season.
Both the Sacramento Kings and the Houston Rockets are below the playoff line, but Sacramento is a good deal closer to getting over it. I like them to pick up their 2nd straight win.
5-Unit Soccer Pick
As I mentioned earlier, I am on a slump with my soccer picks, which is usually where I get most of my wins. Getting back into them today and hoping to turn things around. My top pick is in the Belgian League, where I like Gent over Kortrijk. They have lost 3 straight games to their opponents, but I think they halt that skid today.
If you play over at SportsPlays, you will be rewarded with a 3X pick the next day. They choose the game you play and it needs to be either a point total pick or against the spread. The max bet here is 20 cents, but you get 3X the odds if you win. Today, I am taking the San Antonio Spurs +3.5.
Good Luck and be sure to come and join me over at SportsPlays.
