Purrell’s Picks and Parlays

Image result for hot tips

Yesterday, we won 2 of 3 in the parlay. I am aware that is a loser but we cancelled with my lock of the night in college with Penn’s first half against Miami. If you added a little extra to the money line, like I suggested, then yesterday ended up being a W.

The NBAs matchup of the night is my 76ers traveling to the Raptors which could very well be a foreshadow to the Eastern Conference finals barring the Celtics continue to not figure out how to play together because I still believe they have the most talented roster in the East. Right now the line sits at Raptors -6.5. It is no secret that the Sixers this year have been a far different team at home then on the road. I give the Sixers the edge against any team in the NBA at home other than the Warriors and apparently the Cavs? (Wtf was that game). https://sports.yahoo.com/joel-embiid-pokes-fun-tristan-thompson-76ers-rough-loss-cavaliers-still-run-east-063833495.html The game is a non-bet that I will certainly bet because I have to every time the Sixers are on primetime TV especially when they are a dog.

  • So no pick but if you need to Sixers +6.5

Today will be another 3 team parlay. Gotta get one to start spicing things up with 4-5 teamers

  • The Wizards stink but the Hawks stink even more. John Wall is out tonight and last year the talk was “Are the Wizards better without John Wall?” This seems ridiculous butttt Wall dominates the ball for the majority of every shot clock I don’t think they are a better team without him, but somehow manage to play better when he is not on the court. Very contradictory but somehow true. The Hawks just came off an ass-beaten against the Warriors last night and are on a second night of a back to back. I anticipate a game early but for the Hawks and Trae Young to roll over in the second half.
    • The play is Wizards -4.5
      • Final score Wizards 105-96
  • Warriors vs. Cavs round 57! Potential NBA finals matchup? You tell me. Cavs stink out loud and I don’t know if I could name anyone on the team besides Tristian Thompson and Kevin Love who is hurt. Jordan Clarkson still there? Haven’t seen too much of his 1-8 from 3 nights and throws up the 3 goggles when he finally gets one to fall. Maybe he is still there, maybe not doesn’t really matter. Warriors by 30 tonight and I anticipate them going on a run after an early season cold streak without 2 of their 4 all-stars. Forgot Boogie, Fuck they have five all-stars
    • Warriors -11.5
      • Final score Warriors 123-94
  • The third and final leg is the Lakers and Spurs matchup. The Spurs got blown out last night by Utah and gave up a shit ton of points. This is not a Pop team that controls the ball and plays sound fundamental defense. The Lakers like to get up and down in a hurry and are not exactly fond of defense themselves. I expect a ton of points between these two in the West Coast night game. Give me the over
    • The play Lakers over 224
      • Final Score Lakers 124-116

 

College play of the Night

  • VCU travels to Texas. Shaka Smart’s former team and his former assistant Mike Rhodes, from whom I have been told, was the recruiter that brought the majority of the kids in that sparked VCU’s tournament run along with landing Shaka Smart at the massive program of Texas and a big fat pay-day. I anticipate limited points in this matchup and that will keep VCU in it against their former coach.
    • VCU +10
      • Texas wins 63-59
