Las Vegas Expert Picks: Daytona 500, NCAAB, NBA Skills/Dunk Contest
Vegas veteran Benjamin Eckstein, author of America’s Line, brings three Years of Expertise to Create weekly??picks Within his”Ecks & Bacon” column
LAS VEGAS??–??When it comes to Bacon, Ecks & SPEED is??the guy. Why? Because my very first car was a Chevy Vega, with rust holes in the floorboard, which could go 0 to 60 in like a WEEK! So obviously, that qualifies me to produce some picks in”The terrific American Race,” the”Super Bowl of Stock Car Racing,”??or as we call it around my house, the Daytona 500.
As you might anticipate, Eck isn’t gon na with no hours of study, and a few sportsbook shopping throw . First up is Denny Hamlin. Denny has two Daytonas in his garage in the home??and, at +1000, we’re gonna take a bite. Then it’s Jimmy Johnson, plus a couple of winner. JJ is listed in many spots at +2500, but we located him +4000 here in Vegas. Can’t disclose the title of the sportsbook, but should you hit my email, email@example.com, I’ll come clean.
And my long shot is gonna be Austin Dillon. He has one Daytona on his glove compartment and is recorded in mostly +3000. Did some searching and found him for an INCREDIBLE +20000 in one place. That’s??TWO HUNDRED TO ONE!!! Found out that Dillon was created in Welcome, North Carolina. My countless fans would be petitioning to change the name of his town to YOU’RE WELCOME!!! after that he wins
On to a college proposal tonight. Dartmouth is still a 6-point favorite over Columbia and has lost twice in a row. What??? What are we missing? So, how can we bulge against the Lions upwards, also not put Columbia in a two-team 6-point teaser.
Then it’s straight back to Philly, where we will drop Penn out of -7 to -1 stage against Brown. The Quakers have managed the Bears readily, winning the last five by an average of 10 points. When you look at the Brownies’ work, you’ll see they’ve won four in a row. But look closer and four Ws came at home. The following question is what exactly are the Bears enjoy on the street? The way to an 0-6 NEGATIVE perfecto! But this is actually the Ivy League, therefore we’re gonna keep the tease.
Tomorrow, if we can get double digits from Duke gon na roll out a couple of gems, starting with Notre Dame. Mike Brey, the Irish trainer, comes from the shrub of Coach K and should have the ability to handle the Blue Devils, or at least stay close. ND has covered SIX IN A ROW and eight of the last nine, and ought to be MONEY!
In the event the amount is right across Hurricanes -3 points next up is Miami-Florida over Wake Forest. If the number is less or -10 for the Billikens in your home, then we’ll move on to Saint Louis over LaSalle. Thinking about Montana over Idaho State, but if the line becomes too near -20 for the Grizzlies, then we will pass.
Night and I’ll leave you with a little NBA activity in the Skills Challenge tomorrow. Gimme my guy Domantas Sabonis at +1000 to conquer all of the little fellas. If you’re able to locate a price in the Dunk Contest, then my transfer would be to Derrick Jones Jr.. At about +300.
