Betting With Ben (2/22/23)


Yesterday’s Recap

Man, you know what sucks? Hitting all 4 of my honorable mentions yesterday and losing my POD. Hopefully, you failed my honorable mentions as well to make some money. But Xavier was a bad read on my part, Vegas won that round, but we’re going to bounce back today!

Still 6-2-1 on our POD record! Let’s get into it!

Pick of The Day (2/22/23)

James Madison – 1.5 (-105)

This is a tough slate today, but this play stood out to me. JMU picked up a 72-66 on the road against Marshall on Dec. 31 and are amid an impressive 6-1 ATS run across their past seven outings overall. JMU is now back at home with a short line; however, JMU has also performed well against winning teams, going 10-1 ATS in the past 11 games against teams with a record above .500.

This is a huge in-conference game. I like the Dukes at home to get the job done. I think they come out playing with some spark and some fire, and I think they get the job done.

POD Record: 6-2-1

Honorable Mentions: Record (4-0)

Florida +2.5 (-105): This line makes no sense; Kentucky coming off a huge win against Tennessee to now only being -2.5 point favorites on the road against Florida? Give me Florida here with the points.

Islanders/Jets und 5.5 (-124): Not much hockey tonight, but this is my favorite hockey play. Both of these teams are slow, physical teams that play great defense and have good goaltending. I think this has all the makings of a 2-1 or 3-1 game with the under-hitting. Islanders unders are cash cows.

Wisconsin -1 (-108): Wisconsin is home taking on Iowa. Iowa just got thumped on the road by Northwestern, and they are back on the road against Wisconsin. Wisconsin lost by 1 point to a good Rutgers team last time out. I think Wisconsin can take over this game and get a W on their home court. 

Thank you all for reading! It’s a tough slate tonight, but we’ll find some winners! Let’s have a night.
