PropSwap Picks of the Week: January 9th-16th

PropSwap Picks of the Week: January 9th-16th

This article is part of our PropSwap Picks of the Week series.

Have you ever made a bet at a sportsbook that you later regretted? Did the money line change on you?  Or, conversely, did you bet on a future that suddenly had a great chance at hitting? If so, a secondary marketplace to sell your ticket is available to you!  PropSwap posts your tickets and makes them available via a straight sale or a bidding process. Think of PropSwap as an eBay for sports tickets. Like an item on eBay, you place the ticket on PropSwap, and then people can buy and/or bid on your action.  And, yes, that's right - you can also purchase action on the site as well!

The purpose of our weekly article is to take a look at what's available on PropSwap this week and give advice on our best buys. Before you buy anything on PropSwap, be sure to read the fine print. The betting slip will be sent to you via certified mail, so if your ticket wins, you need to be near a licensed sportsbook to cash it in. Although deadlines to cash vary, most sportsbooks' typical expiration date is six months or 180 days. 

Today we'll run through the various sports and recommend a few 'sell' options to consider if you're interested in placing action on the site. 

We hope someone grabbed up the Cole Anthony recommendation last week.  We said he was one injury away, and his NBA Rookie of the Year odds are sure to move with Markelle Fultz's injury. We also saw Texas whip up on Kansas right after we laid out that recommendation. Let's see what we can come up with this week!

NFL

Colts @ BILLS (-6) $69.00

-121.05 TO WIN $126.00

Rams @ SEAHAWKS (-4.5) $110

-135.80 TO WIN $191.00

For those of you who can't make it to a Sportsbook for Wild Card Weekend, this is an excellent way to get in on the action, although you don't have much time to act.  I would take the underdog in both of these games if the spreads were slightly more favorable, but I don't see the Rams or the Colts covering here. LA would need a season-best performance from Jared Goff or a subpar outing from Russell Wilson to get past the first round. I think the Colts have the talent to win, but Philip Rivers has never played well in the playoffs, and I think that trend will continue.

PACKERS TO WIN 2021 NFL Championship $286.30

Odds 3:1 TO WIN $1,144.00

The Chiefs can find a way to lose the AFC, but the NFC's path is a lot clearer for Aaron Rodgers and the Pack. With a talented corps of receivers, a solid running game and a 12th ranked overall defense, they should be clear favorites to make it to Super Bowl.

NBA

Kevin Durant TO WIN 2021 NBA MVP Award $102.65

Odds 8.5:1 TO WIN $975.00

For the money, this is the best available leverage play for the MVP.  I like Nikola Jokoc better at the moment, but his odds aren't favorable right now, and we'd need a down week for him to worthwhile.  Even though Durant will miss the week due to COVID-19 protocols, I expect him to get better and better in his new home.

I'd also still take some shots at Cole Anthony for ROY again, even though the numbers are falling fast. Only James Wiseman is a guaranteed starter right now, and Anthony has a shot to be twice as productive. He's all over PropSwap right now.

CBB

Clemson TO WIN 2021 NCAAB Championship $123.33

Odds 80:1 TO WIN $9,990

I admit I'm biased, and I may just bid on this one.  Games against Duke, Virginia and a rematch against Florida State will say a lot about the Tigers' chances, but it looks like Brad Brownell finally as a team that can operate his stingy defense while putting points on the board as well. Aamir Simms leads the team, but freshman P.J. Hall and transfer Nick Honor are making waves in the ACC, and it looks like they can beat the best on any given night.

TICKETS TO BUY/SELL

Every week I will locate a ticket to consider placing on the site. Optimally, you want to sell a ticket that is attractive enough to buy but will probably become less valuable as time goes on. This is why early favorites are so popular on this site. This time around, I'm looking at tickets that are a bit more immediate. Optimally, you're looking to sell these while hedging on other bets that aren't clear favorites.

+1000 Green Bay Packers defeat Kansas City Chiefs- Super Bowl EXACT RESULT

I like to nail down an exact result on the big game while the odds are still favorable.  I'd also hedge with the Bills beating the Packers at +2400.

+165 Packers TO WIN NFC Championship

Take this before the odds dip.
