Betting With Ben (2/18/2023)
With a slate this good, I woke up early, brewed my cup of coffee, and dove in to find some winners. Still riding off that high of the Kings over 37.5 SOG last night! That brings our POD record to 3-1-1 so far.
With so much CBB and NHL today, I thought it only right to provide two plays for y’all. A Saturday special with one CBB and one NHL play that I absolutely love! Let’s keep riding hot, and let’s get into it!
College Basketball Pick Of The Day
Kansas State -3.5 (+100)
I locked this in last night at -2.5, but I still love the number and value here at -3.5 at even money. Last time out, the Cyclones beat the Wildcats shooting 57% and outrebounding them as well. These are two different teams now, and on the Wildcat’s home floor, I think they avenge their last loss and get the job at home.
Overall the Wildcats are a more balanced team, and I’m expecting some regression from Iowa State in their FG % and rebounding as well. I think the Wildcats fluster them, settle in, and win this game by a decent margin.
NHL Pick Of The Day
Canucks/Flyers over 6.5 (-128)
Oh, look! The Canucks play hockey tonight! You know what that means! Bet the over! The Canucks have gone over 6.5 total goals in 9 straight games! That’s insane, and if you’re not riding, you should be until these wheels fall off.
I don’t see them falling off tonight as the Canucks host the flyers. Canucks have let up 224 total goals, which is the 2nd worst only in front of the Ducks in the league.
The Flyers are also a very poor defensive team, as they’ve given up 177 total goals which is 5th worse in the Eastern Conference. I think we see a lot of offense and a fast-paced game and not much defense or superb goaltending to be found, either.
Give me the over here!
There are my 2 POD’s! Let’s cash in and have a great start to the weekend!
