Clay's Plays 3/17
Half the picks did not go as planned yesterday. Hurricanes continued to prove that their money line should be bet on any night they hit the ice, but I’ve realized there are some tennis players that are un-bettable right now with their inconsistent play. I kept it simple with today’s parlay, just 5 games that I feel good about. Overall Record: 42-22
Nuggets ML (-260)
Golden Knights ML (-230)
Kei Kishikori ML (-240)
Grigor Dimitrov ML (-175)
Casper Ruud ML (-248)
The Nuggets face the Hornets at home tonight. If you have been following my picks for the past week, you know it pains me to bet against the Hornets in this, as they have been a consistent lock for me. The Hornets win the games they are supposed to against bad teams, especially at home. The Nuggets are not a bad team however, and the Nuggets are at home. I see the Hornets winning streak ending tonight.
Golden Knights just played the Sharks on Monday and beat them 2-1. While that is not a super convincing win, I see them beating the Sharks again tonight at home one again.
Kei Nishikori has been hot since returning from a long injury. He has not just been winning matches, but been beating good players too. He’s already beat two very respected players in this current tournament, and with those wins, I do not see him losing to Bedene.
Dimitrov was one of 3 people who got the job done for my parlay yesterday. He faces a player in Kecmanovic that I have honestly never heard of. From all results I have seen from Kecmanovic and Dimitrov recently, I think Grigor wins this one in straight sets.
Casper Ruud made his return in this tournament, playing for the first time since retiring in the middle of his fourth round match at the Australian Open. Ruud is a consistent, reliable player to bet on, and I like him to win this match comfortably.
