Warriors Spurs over 206 for 2 units. When the Warriors played their strongest lineup against the Spurs this season, the over soared over 206 every time. The last game between these two saw a total of like 165. That was a fluke. Kevin Durant, Klay, and Steph were all out of that one. The spread scares me in this one, but I feel confident in this over.
Wizards +8 for 2 units. Raptors are 0-7 in their last 7 game 1s. I expect John Wall to play like he has in past playoffs and go off. Wizards did beat the Raptors in Toronto back in November, which should give them a little more confidence going into this one. It is the playoffs, I expect a close game here.
Pelicans +6 for 2 units. Anthony Davis and playoff Rondo. That is my capping angle for this game.
21-22-3 in Hockey up 2.77 units
Of course I bet on the Capitals in the playoffs last time out.. I have been ice cold lately.
Bruins ML at -170 for 3 units. Nazem Kadri has been suspended 3 games for the Leafs, prolly a little too harsh but still not good. Matthews against the Bruins 4th line worries me a little bit, but the Bruins are just better than the Leafs. Brad Marchand always makes the games interesting. If the Bruins lose.. It is because I bet them.
4-3 on MLB in 2018 down 0.75 units
Red Sox ML at -154 for 2 units. Alex Cobb is making is debut for the O’s. For the Orioles sake, I hope he does well. They need some starting pitching. I think this is a tough spot for him however. Red Sox have scored 6 runs or more in their last 6 games. Boston is also 5-1 in day games while the O’s are 2-4. J.D. Martinez has smoked Cobb in his career and nobody on the O’s starting 9 has ever faced Hector Velazquez. I am going with Hector and J.D. in this one.
Pirates ML at -165 for 5 units. Complete disclosure.. I am tilting here. I am pissed I did not zag last night with the Pirates fishy -130 line against a terrible Marlins team. The Marlins ended up winning. Let’s hope Jameson Taillon can get me back on track. Taillon threw a complete game one hitter his last time out. Trevor Richards has been bad for the Marlins this season too. I am taking this play with a lot more confidence than they play last night.
40-34-2 in soccer down 4.36 units
Toronto FC +0.5 at -140 for 3 units. If your site does not offer this, you could bet the tie and the win for Toronto as well. Marlon Hairston is injured for the Rapids, but they have looked better under recently appointed manager, Anthony Hudson. Edgar Castillo and Tim Howard are most likely Colorado’s best players. Giovinco and Altidore will not be featured in this game, but I still like Toronto’s young talent. There is just too much value in this play as both lineups will feature young, hungry players.
Manchester City +0.5 at -190 for 4 units and the over 2.5 for 1 unit at -140. Spurs are in better “form”, but City has played the red hot Liverpool and rival Manchester United to the tune of 3 straight loses. The over has hit the last 3 times these teams have met. These teams have only drawn 2 of the last 15 meetings.. are they due for a draw? Manchester City has to get their act together unless they want to be a part of one of the biggest premier league meltdowns in history. I think Pep and the boys secure at least a point in what should be an exciting game.
Columbus Crew +0.5 at -202 for 5 units. Crew created so many chances their last time out. Zardes and Higuan are the two best players on the pitch in this one and both play for the Crew. D.C. United have had the worst form in the Eastern Conference of late. I do like Mattocks for United, but he will not be enough to secure 3 points in this one.
