Monchengladbach vs. Dortmund – German Soccer
When: Friday, January 22, 2:30pm, ET
Where: Borussia-Park, Monchengladbach, Germany
Analysis: We head to Germany for the first leg of our Friday Parlay, where Monchengladbach takes on Dortmund.
Monchengladbach might be a mouthful, but it’s coming off a win over Werder Bremen and it could be the value team on Friday.
It hasn’t lost since December and has scored four wins and a draw during that time. The biggest win came over Bayern Munich (3-2) earlier this month, which holds it in good stead.
Dortmund lost to Bayer Leverkusen on Tuesday, and it will be looking to bounce back on Friday. Dortmund is currently fourth in the Bundesliga standings, with Monchengladbach sitting in seventh.
Dortmund has got the better of Monchengladbach in recent times, but we think there could be an upset brewing.
3-Team Parlay Betting Prediction
We have been impressed with the play from Monchengladbach this soccer betting season, and we don’t think it should be paying +230 to win this game.
Bettors could take it with a half-goal start at -130 odds, but take the moneyline value available at BetUS.
Pick: Monchengladbach 2 Dortmund 1
Fairleigh Dickinson (2-6) vs. Merrimack (1-3) – NCAAB
When: Friday, January 22, 4:00pm, ET
Where: Hammel Court, North Andover, MA
Analysis: This game won’t set a national viewership record, but it could provide college basketball betting fans with value for the Friday Parlay.
Fairleigh Dickinson comes into this game following a 69-65 win over Fairfield, which could see it go to another level now. The four-point victory came against a solid team in the Stags, so taking on the Warriors shouldn’t worry the Knights.
Merrimack has played only four games this season, which won’t help on Friday. It scored a win over Sacred Heart to start the season before losing three on the bounce.
Two of those losses came to Mount St Mary’s, but the Warriors scored only 52 points in their most recent performance.
Betting lines could favor the home side, but there should be value with Fairleigh Dickinson.
3-Team Parlay Betting Prediction
Brandon Rush is a quality scorer for Fairleigh Dickinson, and he could be the difference on Friday.
The guard is averaging 15.9 points per game, and he is getting help from the likes of Elyjah Williams and Jahlil Jenkins.
Merrimack is missing court time, and that should have a negative effect on its play against Fairleigh Dickinson.
Pick: Fairleigh Dickinson 72 Merrimack 67
The American Express – Golf
When: Live In-Play
Where: La Quinta, California
Analysis: Boost your parlay payouts with an in-play golf betting prediction. We like one player to make a weekend charge, and score an overdue PGA Tour win.
Tony Finau is our man, who has made a good start to The American Express tournament. He sits only a few shots off the lead, and bettors get value odds for the American to win.
Finau is one of the better players to not have a PGA Tour win to his name. However, it’s only a matter of time before he breaks through.
There is no better time to strike than early in the year, and the big-hitting golfer could set the tone for 2021.
Bettors get generous odds for Finau, so lock him in for value. Live odds for Golf here.
