The Daily (1/5/21)

I am starting a new blog that will be coming out every day and this will be called the daily. Every day from now on I will give a write up of my gambling picks for the day. One thing I want to make sure is that you are following the Chasers on twitter (@thechasers617). We post one to two episodes a week on Sound Cloud and Spotify, please go give us a listen. With that being said here are my daily picks for Tuesday January 5th.


College Basketball:


Florida vs Alabama 

The Florida Gators are on the road tonight at Alabama. Florida has been on fire as of late as they have covered in four out of their last five games. They also have the numbers on their side as of late when facing the Crimson Tide. Florida has a 15-2 straight up in their last seventeen meetings against Alabama. Also in the last eight meetings played in Tuscaloosa between these two teams; the Gators are 8-0 straight up in those games. The Crimson Tide are a talented bunch. but tonight isn’t there night.

Plays: Florida +3 (1.08u/1u) & Florida ML (1u/1.3u)


Uconn vs Marquette

The Huskies are have been on fire to start their comeback tour into the Big East. UCONN has shown that they are a legitimate threat in the Big East as they went toe to toe with Creighton and barely lost. Marquette on the other hand has struggled so far in Big East play. They did beat Creighton, but then they had a three game skid against Seton Hall, Xavier, and Villanova. Now they host UCONN in what should be a very entertaining game from start to finish. The impact player in this one is definitely going to be James Bouknight from UCONN. He has been a man on a mission so far this season, and I see him being the reason why UCONN wins this game tonight.

Play: UCONN ML (2.18u/2u)


Other CBB Plays: 

Vanderbilt ML (1u/5.5u)

Miami (FL) ML (1u/1.4u)

Rutgers +2 (1.1u/1u)

TCU +6 (1.09u/1u)



Los Angeles Lakers vs Memphis Grizzlies

The Los Angeles Lakers are playing game two in their two game set against the Memphis Grizzlies tonight. Before all the injuries, the Grizzlies look like they would be a threat to make some noise in the Western Conference. Without guys like Ja Morant, and Jaren Jackson Jr. though this team isn’t the same. On the Lakers end does LeBron and Anthony Davis play? This is the dilemma you will have to deal with every time they are not playing on prime time TV this season. With the Lakers being a 9.5 point favorite tonight, you got to believe that there is a possibility that one of the Lakers star duo doesn’t play tonight. Well my take is that the Lakers will have at least Anthony Davis playing tonight, and that is more than enough for me in this game.

Play: Lakers -9.5 (1.1u/1u)


Chicago Bulls vs Portland Trailblazers

The Chicago Bulls are heading to Portland tonight to take on the Blazers. Portland is looking to bounce back from the Stephen Curry career high night that they allowed in their last game. Chicago has been good for the most part this season. With a 3-4 record coming into tonight’s game the Bulls have looked like they could sneak into a playoff spot this year in the Eastern Conference. Portland has looked good, but they haven’t looked up to where I thought they would be in the standings so far this season. This number is too high for my blood tonight as the Blazers are 9.5 point favorites, but my play has nothing to do with either team individually.

Play: Over 233 (1.08u/1u)


If I add any more picks tonight they will be either on The Chasers twitter account (@thechasers617) or my own account (@cjoneswho1212). Enjoy the slate and let’s make some money tonight.
