Betting With Ben (2/23/23)


Yesterdays Bet

Welp, we officially find ourselves on our first losing streak. A 2 loss streak now, as the play was never JMU. The public ate, and the sharps starved last night. But that’s ok because that means tonight is going to be a big bounce-back day for us! And boy, do we have an automatic bet for us tonight to play! Let’s get into it!

Pick of The Day (2/23/23): Record: 6-3-1

Capitals over 38.5 SOG 

Y’all know how this works. The Ducks are on the road against the Capitals tonight. This has been one of the freest bets all year, and you should continue to hammer it while you can. The Ducks have allowed over 40 SOG in their last 7 straight games, and they average 39.55 shots against. This number is at 38.5, and I don’t see the Capitals having any issue beating up on the Ducks tonight and getting the puck on net. 

Honorable Mentions Record: (6-1)

Canucks/Blues over 6.5 (-138): Canucks games have gone over 6.5 in their last 10 straight games, and this is a great matchup for the “over” tonight against the Blues. Both with porous defenses and goaltending. Love the over in this one.

Northwestern + 6.5 (-112): My new favorite team to bet on! NW is on the road tonight against Illinois, and it is not going to be an easy game by any means, but this number just seems way too high to me. Giving a red-hot team like NW 6.5 points. Seems like Vegas isn’t respecting NW just yet. Take the points with them here.

Sabres/Lightning over 6.5 (-140): Definitely a little juicy here, but again, I don’t give out anything that is greater than -140 odds. So lay the juice with this one. The Sabres are another great team to bet the over on. They can score a lot of goals and give up a lot of goals as well. This should be a shootout in TB tonight. 

Rutgers – 5.5 (-106): Ending the honorable mentions with Rutgers -5.5 at home tonight, taking on Michigan. This line and this spot just tell me that Rutgers is going to roll tonight. They’re the better team on the court; in a big conference game, Rutgers gets up for this one and takes down Michigan handily.

Good luck to everyone tonight! Unless you’re fading me!
