Max’s Sports Bet Picks for 1/26/22
CHA (-1.5) at IND (1.5)
Pick: Bet $10 CHA ML
Total: 225 (Lean Under – 216)
Predicted Score: CHA 112 – IND 104
Notes: Well, I missed on my Charlotte play yesterday. But I am very confident in betting them again today.
I mean, somewhat confident.
Indy is still dealing with some key injuries and other than Gordon Hayward, the Hornets are pretty healthy. Coming off a back-to-back, they might be a little gassed today – but I do expect them to put in a solid effort to avoid a 3-game losing streak.
Indy will also look to avoid losing three in a row after suffering road losses to Phoenix and New Orleans. The Pacers return home after a long road trip. That did not fair well for the Rockets yesterday.
I like the Hornets to get the win so a $10 moneyline bet on Charlotte.
MIL (-4.5) at CLE (4.5)
Pick: Bet $10 CLE ML
Total: 217.5 (Lean Under – 215)
Predicted Score: MIL 106 – CLE 109
Notes: Cleveland is having some issues with their depth at the moment. Jarrett Allen is listed as questionable with a non-Covid sickness and Lauri Markkanen is dealing with a sprained ankle that will keep him out.
Maybe those losses will prevent the Cavs from getting a big win over a Bucks team that is riding a 3-game winning streak.
The win over Memphis was a damn good one for sure but then recent losses to Atlanta and Toronto remind me that Milwaukee is once again sleep walking through the regular season.
That’s still been good enough for 30 wins and 1 game out of the top seed in the East. So imagine if they actually tried.
I’m worried about the Cleveland injuries but still, the value is there.
$10 moneyline bet on the Cavs.
PHX (-4) at UTA (4)
Pick: Bet $10 PHX ML
Total: 221.5 (Lean Under – 214)
Predicted Score: PHX 111 – UTA 103
Notes: Utah is a very good team. But they have not been unbeatable at home like in past seasons.
Add in the fact that they will be missing their two best players with both Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert out with injuries and you would think this line against the Suns would be much worse.
But Phoenix is also dealing with some issues. Deandre Ayton remains out. JaVale McGee is out. Jae Crowder is out. Frank Kaminsky is out. Dario Saric is out.
If you are keeping count, that’s 5 bigmen out for the Suns. That leaves Bismack Biyombo as their only big man left. So expect a small ball lineup for sure.
Biyombo and that small lineup was able to handle the Jazz two nights ago and my guess is they do it again.
$10 moneyline bet on the Suns.
LAC (-1.5) at ORL (1.5)
Pick: Lean ORL
Total: 210.5 (Lean Over – 213)
Predicted Score: LAC 106 – ORL 107
SAC (7.5) at ATL (-7.5)
Pick: Lean ATL
Total: 233.5 (Lean Under – 231)
Predicted Score: SAC 111 – ATL 120
NYK (6) at MIA (-6)
Pick: Lean NYK
Total: 202.5 (Lean Over – 209)
Predicted Score: NYK 104 – MIA 105
DEN (1) at BKN (-1)
Pick: Lean DEN
Total: 225.5 (Lean Under – 219)
Predicted Score: DEN 111 – BKN 108
TOR (10.5) at CHI (-10.5)
Pick: Lean TOR
Total: 212 (Lean Over – 215)
Predicted Score: TOR 108 – CHI 107
MEM (-3.5) at SAS (3.5)
Pick: Lean SAS
Total: 227.5 (Lean Under – 223)
Predicted Score: MEM 110 – SAS 113
DAL (-4.5) at POR (4.5)
Pick: Lean POR
Total: 216.5 (Lean Under – 210)
Predicted Score: DAL 104 – POR 106
San Jose Sharks (175) at Washington Capitals (-205)
Pick: Bet $10 San Jose
Notes: I faded the Capitals a few nights ago against the Golden Knights and I hit a nice plus line. Now I am trying to get an even bigger payout by fading them again.
Washington has not been able to find much consistency lately. Maybe they can get a win against a Sharks team that has lost 4 of 5 games. I mean, they lost to the fucking Kraken.
Still, my numbers say that this game is much closer than the line says. I have Washington coming out with a win but barely.
So the value is definitely on San Jose here.
$10 bet on the Sharks.
Boston Bruins (155) at Colorado Avalanche (-180)
Pick: Bet $10 Boston
Notes: The Avalanche have 1 loss since January 2. That was an OT loss to the Predators on January 11th. That means 12-1 in the month of January.
Colorado is 18-2-1 at home this season. After a slower start to the season, this team is poised to make their Cup run once again.
As for Boston, they’ve been pretty good themselves. But they still have a ways to go to catch up to the likes of Florida or Tampa Bay in the Atlantic.
Still, Boston has been great on the road this season and based on their advanced metrics, their offense should be producing more goals based on their shots on goal. If that picks up, Boston could be a very dangerous team soon.
There is no questioning that Colorado is a beast. But this line seems too big to me.
$10 value bet on the Bruins.
Anaheim Ducks (235) at Toronto Maple Leafs (-280)
Pick: Lean Toronto
Calgary Flames (-185) at Columbus Blue Jackets (160)
Pick: Lean Calgary
Chicago Blackhawks (105) at Detroit Red Wings (-125)
Pick: Lean Detroit
