Buy the Book Daily Picks are fully in motion. Our betting team is a combined 21-15 overall and we are on the rise. Our teams overall stats: 21-15, 58.33%, +3.9u. Today, we look to add four more wins into the win column.
Alex Jansen (2-2, 50%, -0.2u): Portland Trailblazers -3 vs. Philadelphia 76ers
Coming off a brutal heartbreaker yesterday to the Clippers and some internet beef, Damian Lillard will have a fire lit beneath him and scorch the Sizers. The 76ers have barely been able to get by in Orlando and without Ben Simmons, the Blazers will be ready to get this one to move one step closer to the playoffs.
Ben Jansen (14-9, 60.86%, +3.4u): Los Angeles Clippers -13 vs. Brooklyn Nets
The Nets have clinched a playoff spot, and there’s not much more they can do from here, and it’s showing as Jarrett Allen, Caris Levert, and Joe Harris are all doubtful tonight. On the other side Kawhi is back after a day of rest and should secure a blowout win as an overwhelming favorite
Dylan Kelly (3-3, 50%, -0.2u): Houston Rockets -6 vs. Sacramento Kings.
The Rockets have made statement wins in the bubble beating the Mavericks, Bucks, and the Lakers, proving that small ball can in fact work. I expect them to roll over the Kings today and win by a large margin, continuing to prove that they are a force to be reckon with as they enter their stretch run.
Ryan Kelly (2-1, 66.67%, +0.9u): Boston Red Sox ML -153 vs. Toronto Blue Jays
The Red Sox are coming off a heartbreaking 2-1 loss yesterday and they desperately need a win before they enter a week where they play 4 games against the Rays and 3 in the Bronx. Eovaldi is on the bump today and aside from his most recent start, he’s looks very dependable to begin the year. Eovaldi should also be pitching with a nice cushion because Matt Shoemaker (5.91 ERA) on the mound for the Blue Jays, the Sox’ offense should put up a lot of runs early.
