Corrigan’s Gambling Corner: Week Three

Daniel Corrigan | January 26th, 2020

Welcome back. We are on the board in 2020 with a solid 3-1 week. I have decided to give more picks rather than just a “lock of the week” or an “over of the week.” I know I wake up in the morning and instantly check the lines for the day. Which is weird, because I live in Ohio, a place that won’t allow me to place bets.

So here we go, I want to give about 5-8 picks per article. That will obviously vary depending on if I like the board or not that particular day.

2020 Record: 3-3-1

Picks

Ohio State vs Northwestern: Under 132.5

Fordham vs Saint Louis (-14.5)

Virginia (-4.5) vs Wake Forrest

Nets +1.5 vs Knicks

Suns vs Grizzlies (ML)

Pro Bowl: Under 51

Ohio State vs Northwestern: Under 132.5

Ohio State stinks recently. Northwestern has always stunk. Either Ohio State comes out and beats this team by 20 (and yes, I still think the under would hit,) or its a really close horrible game.

Fordham vs Saint Louis (-14.5)

Fordham is averaging under 60 ppg while Saint Louis is a tick above 71 ppg. Not to mention that Fordham is so brutally bad. The game is at 3 p.m. and Fordham has lost its last six day-time tips. Not to mention Saint Louis wins 83.3% of its game at home.

Virginia (-4.5) vs Wake Forrest 

Virginia is nowhere near the championship team they were last year. But they continue to play Virginia basketball, which is the absolute worst. They score just above 55 a game and allow only 59.7 per game. They are the only team that I don’t necessarily hate, but I actively root against them. But I can’t ignore that they are talented and they should take this one pretty easily.

Nets +1.5 vs Knicks

Listen, I know the Nets stink, But seriously? a +1.5 against the Knicks? Yeah, I’ll take the free money (if I could.)

Suns vs Grizzlies (ML)

I’m a very big fan of this Grizzlies team. More specifically, a big fan of Ja Morant. I think he is going to be so special in this league.

Pro Bowl: Under 51

I only have two more games to give picks on for football until August, damn right I’m including the Pro-Bowl. Oddsmakers tend to set larger numbers for special games like this. It’s expected for a ton of points during all-star games. But actually, the scoring totals have been down for the Pro-Bowl in the past few years.
