Clay’s Plays by Clay Horowitz - 3/10
Another parlay did not hit yesterday. Not a great start to the week. Bryant couldn’t secure the win, and Gonzaga had their worst 1ft half in a year. I got ahead of myself with my bets, and realize I need to go back to my strategy that was working when I started this blog. Instead of looking for picks to fill the blog, I need to really only choose picks that I can not see losing. So, today we got a parlay I feel really good about. Here it is. Overall Record: 20-14
Northern Colorado ML (-163)
Xavier ML (-270)
Jackson State ML (-445)
Roger Federer ML (-182)
Frances Tiafoe ML (-190)
Karen Khachanov ML (-248)
Northern Colorado has won their last 4 meetings against Sacramento State. They have won all 4 meetings this season, and last time they lost to them was before Coronavirus was a thing. I am sticking with my guy Trent, founder of Bookit Sports squad play of the day, and lets ride this game.
Xavier has been far from a great team this season; however,Butler has been worse. Two teams that are usually contenders in March Madness, but neither have been great this year. Xavier has not had a great stretch of games recently, but I feel good about them not losing first round of the Big East Tournament.
Jackson State should win this game no problem. I am not worried at all about this game, I added it just to make the parlay worth a little bit more money.
Federer makes his return today, facing Daniel Evans in his first match back in 13 months. I know Fed would not come back officially unless he felt good enough, so I think this line is a steal. Expect the GOAT to win this one, and make his comeback announced.
Tiafoe just beat Bagnis 6-1 6-3 last week at the Argentina Open. He squeezed out a tough win on Monday, and I expect this one to go much smoother in Tiafoe’s favor.
Khachanov is one of the best players on tour, and is playing good tennis right now. McDonald is a good player, but Khachanov should handle this match easily.
