Betting With Ben (2/21/2023)
Waking up and seeing a slate like this should get everyone hyped up and ready to make some money! With Massachusetts just recently legalizing online sports betting, no better place to go to get your locks than to “lostinbostonsports.com.”
We are 6-1-1 since we started writing these POD’s with yesterday Panthers over SOG hitting very easily, even with the line moved up to 42.5. Trust me now? We couldn’t be hotter right now. Today is a fantastic slate with a lot of great college basketball games and NHL games.
So let’s dive into our POD, and then I will have some honorable mentions at the end that I will also be on, and you should too.
Pick Of The Day: 2-21-23
Xavier – 4.5 (-110)
We have a little reverse line movement here as the line started as Xavier -5.5, but we are now getting another point. This line does seem like it should maybe be a little bigger, which worries me a little bit. It seems like the books are giving us a gift here, having the number only be 4.5
Xavier has been cooking at home this year. They haven’t lost at home since November, and now we have a struggling and demoralized Villanova team coming into this game at 13-14. Being under .500 for the first time since 2012.
This matchup shows two teams trending in the opposite direction. It’s been over a month since Xavier has scored less than 80 points at home in a game; meanwhile, the Wildcats are struggling to score 70. While I think this could be a high-scoring game with the pace that Xavier plays at, I think we see a double-digit victory tonight from the Musketeers.
– You know who plays again? The Anaheim Ducks. I will be on the Lightning over shots on goal at 38.5. (-112) This is a money maker, and I will bet it every time.
-Canucks/ Predators over 6.5 (-128) Canucks overs not much more to say right now.
-Texas A&M -1.5 (-108) – Texas A&M is home tonight on a 5-game win streak taking on a struggling Tennessee team after losing 3 of their last 4 and getting blown out against Kentucky last game. I think A&M stays hot and pulls out a close one at home.
-Utah State -6 (-110) This is a fade Wyoming play. Utah is the much better team, and they win this game in a blowout.
