Tuesday’s Best ESPN BET Bets: Blue Jackets-Penguins, Duquesne-VCU, Florida St-Pitt

Published

on

Though the Winning Picks as of late haven’t been great, we broke through on Monday night going 3-0.

The Panthers were able to get a nice road win at MSG over the Rangers. This Florida team looks like they can make it back to the Stanley Cup Finals this year and possibly win it this time around. Baylor was able to surge back in the second half down as many as 14 points to Texas, covering in the process. The Lakers were able to cool off the Thunder, winning and covering the spread. We moved to 183-138-3 on the year, an over 56% win percentage.

Despite not being released yet on ESPN BET, some sportsbooks have released odds for the UFL Championship for this spring. If you didn’t already know, the UFL is a combination of both the USFL and XFL, with 8 total teams from both leagues being absorbed into one. Unfortunately for you Pittsburgh Mauler fans, they did not make the cut for the new UFL.

As I talked about in a Winning Pick blog earlier this year, I talked about betting the Birmingham Stallions to win this new league. A two time winner of the USFL (and only winner), they have been installed at +300 to win the UFL. With the amount of players they have brought back from previous seasons, something that is unheard of in these spring leagues, it is no wonder why they are picked to win. But there is another team bringing back a good bulk of their roster that won the XFL last year that has a great shot to win the league as well: the Arlington Renegades.

The Renegades bring back spring league superstar Luis Perez at quarterback. He has literally played in the AAF, XFL 2020, USFL and then back in the new XFL last year. They will also have former WVU RB Leddie Brown back, who led the XFL in rushing last season. Right now, the Renegades are +475 to win the UFL and will face off against Birmingham at home in the first game of the new league. March 30th can’t come soon enough for more football.

Now onto the Winning Picks!

Columbus Blue Jackets at Pittsburgh Penguins (-240) O/U 6.5 7:00 PM on SportsNet Pittsburgh

Two teams riding different waves of emotion meet at PPG Paints Arena Tuesday night as the Penguins host the Blue Jackets. Columbus is coming off their best win of the season last night after they toppled defending Stanley Cup Champion Vegas at home. Former Penguin Alex Nylander recorded his first career hat trick in the win. Maybe the Pens should’ve played him instead of keeping him in the minors and dumping him for a below average player.

The Penguins were shell shocked in Edmonton in a 6-1 defeat, putting the cherry on top of a 1-3 miserable road trip. Now can the Pens rebound tonight? I believe the moneyline is way too high given the way the Penguins have been playing, but I will not be picking the Blue Jackets to pull the upset. I do like the over, as both teams will use these emotions to find the back of the net.

Duquesne Dukes at VCU Rams (-5.5) O/U 136.5 7:00 PM on ESPN+

The Dukes have a chance to improve their position in the A-10 tournament tonight as they face the Rams of VCU on the road. Duquesne was able to win the first leg of their Virginia road trip when they knocked off George Mason in a low scoring affair. Can they make it 2-2 in the lover’s state?

I believe Duquesne will implore a similar game plan as they did Saturday, keeping the score down. The Dukes are not built to get in a shootout with teams. The under will cover tonight in this game but VCU will prevail in the end.

Florida St Seminoles at Pittsburgh Panthers (-8.5) O/U 147.5 9:00 PM on ESPN2

It will be a late start for Pitt tonight on ESPN2 versus Florida St at Pete and I will be in attendance for the second time this year. My first appearance did not go so well for the Panthers as they were lambasted by the Tar Heels. Since then, Jeff Chapel has made changes and Pitt finds themselves at the door to get into the Big Dance Party. But will they be let in is the big question.

This Florida St is about as average as you can get for a Power 5 Conference team, but they have been feisty on the road and don’t normally lose by double digits. Most of their losses on the road have come by 8 or 9 points, which is why the line from ESPN BET is about as spot on as you can get. I don’t think the Panthers will win by double digits tonight, but they will win by 9, covering the spread.
