4-4-1 on NBA Playoffs down .86 units
Raptors pulled away from the Wizards with strong 1st and 4th quarters. DeRozan dropped 37 points and he may be the best mid-range player in the NBA. Here is a picture that sums up this current Wizards roster. Beal is just like.. “I’m done.” Giannis was not enough for the Bucks to beat the Celtics.. again. Jrue Holiday showed up and balled out. Playoff Rondo is still amazing and the Pelicans are up 2-0 on the Blazers. Where is Damien Lillard?
Pacers +8 for 3 units. Pacers won last game by 18 and still are not getting credit from Vegas. I think this game will be a lot closer than Game 1, but the Cavs just have too many problems this season. Cavs had 17 turnovers in the first game. Oladipo has been balling all year and now gets to show off. Lebron did not look like he cared too much in Game 1, I expect more effort from him.. but I doubt it will be enough to blow out the Pacers.
Jazz Thunder over 207 for 3 units. The last game soared over. These teams are both averaging over 110 points in April. I still feel this over under should be set around 212 so I am going to keep taking it. Paul George may not stay as hot as he was in Game 1, but I expect Westbrook to pick up the slack a little.
Rockets -10 for 3 units. Rockets missed over 10 open 3s in Game 1. They will make more of these shots in Game 2. Also, Chris Paul had 6 turnovers and an off game, I expect him to improve as well. Rockets are just too nice and know they have to play better than they did in Game 1.
