Betting With Ben (3/2/2023)


Yesterdays Pick

We find ourselves on a 2-game losing streak now. That was an awful call, with Pitt being that low of a road favorite. Should’ve seen the letdown spot incoming there. Still a great record, but need to get back in the win column tonight.

Pick of The Day (11-5-1 Record)

Rutgers -7.5 (-130)

Going back to the big 10 tonight. Rutgers on the road against a horrendous Minnesota team. The Golden Gophers come into this game with a 7-20 record and 1-16 in conference play. 

Last time out, Rutgers won by 35 at home. While it most likely won’t be that lop-sides again, I do see a double-digit win for Rutgers tonight. This is a good Rutgers team, and it’s mainly a big fade of Minnesota. Won’t have many more opportunities to do so, so let’s fade them while we can. Give me the Scarlett Knights laying the points tonight.

Honorable Mentions: Record 12-7 

Went 1-1 last night with our honorable mentions, and my 2nd favorite play is on the ice tonight. 

Canucks/Wild over 5.5/6 

I love the over here. Canucks overs are back with a 9-goal outing against a defensive team in the stars the other night, and now this sure back home against another defensive team in the Wild. I like the Canucks at home to put up at least 2-3 goals, and I think the Wild scoring 3 or more shouldn’t be an issue against this ranking Canucks team. 

Flames ML (-125)

I like the Flames here tonight at home. Long flight over to Calgary. Non conference away spot for the Flames. A team that has lost 3 games in a row against a great Leafs team. The Leafs should be favored in this game, not the Flames. That’s why I love it. 

USC +2.5 (-110)

Late-night play. The Trojans are at home taking on Arizona in what is going to be a great game we already know. Love the line being so small here and the way it is.

USC coming in on a 4 game winning streak, Wildcats are off a bad loss to Arizona State. The Trojans are 14-1 at home. I think the place is gonna be rocking tonight at the Trojans get the job done at home.
