Alright, here’s how this will work. I’m only giving out super-confident bets. The ones that I feel are no doubt about it winners. I’ll keep track of how I’m doing and see how much money you’d make or lose if you bet along with me. Just to keep it clean, every bet will be $100. Let’s get into it:
Milwaukee Bucks -10.5 (at home against Minnesota Timberwolves)
Bet $100, win $91
The Bucks were my favourite bet last season. They smoked everyone. I’ve been following them closely, waiting for them to go on a run. I think the time has come. They had lost 5 in a row which I think was their rock bottom. Now they’ve won 2 straight by at least 10 points. Tonight they get a brutal T-Wolves team that have lost 8 of their last 9. They’re 3-13 on the road. The Bucks are 11-4 at home. Bucks to win by 11 seems like easy money, right?
Montreal Canadiens -1.5 (on the road against Ottawa Senators)
Bet $100, win $115
Montreal’s a good team that has lost two in a row. Their last lost was against Ottawa. I’m banking on a Montreal bounce-back. Ottawa’s an easy team to bet against, too. All year it’s been either not scoring goals, or not making saves, or both. Also, Montreal’s an impressive 6-0-3 on the road.
