NBA Playoffs April 20th

8-6-1 on NBA Playoffs up 6.57 units

Embiid came back and the 76ers waxed the heat. Are the 76ers the favorite in the East now? Pelicans dominated the Blazers again. Mirotic dropped 30 points. Warriors got the win behind a balanced attack and did just enough to push the over. Thank you Warriors.

Cavs +1 for 1 unit. Cavs are 0-2 against the spread this series. Cavs are 32-51 against the spread this year, but I am betting them here. Lebron looked lazy in Game 1, but he came to play in Game 2 (obviously). He should come to play again here. If Cavs lose this one, I will bet them heavy in Game 4. The rigged NBA won’t let the Cavs lose in the first round.

Raptors +1.5 for 2 units. Wizards are dysfunctional and the Raptors are just better. This is a trap line and the Wizards may pull out a win, but I think the Raptors know they can essentially end the series tonight with a win. They can’t let John Wall back in the series. Also, DeRozan is nice.

Bucks Celtics over 204 for 3 units. Both of the previous games in this series have soared over and now we get a sketchy 204 over. Usually, I would zag and take the under, but the line is even more fishy to me at Bucks -5.5. I am just hoping the Bucks put up a lot of points in this one and their defense keeps being below average.

 

 

 

NHL Playoffs April 20th

28-27-3 in Hockey up 8.38 units

5-0 over the past two days.

Bruins take a commanding lead over the Leafs with a 3-1 advantage. Caps win both games in Columbus and are now even 2-2. Keep playing Holtby would be my suggestion.

Predators Avalanche over 6 at +110 for 1 unit.

Flyers Penguins over 6 at +113 for 1 unit. Both of these games had 5 goals in them last time out. I just think we may seem some discouragement and giving up from the teams losing the series or we will see a close game with a few goals from each team. I think the Penguins game could be a blow out and the Preds game could be close, but I do not feel strongly enough to bet those outcomes. I hope Forsberg and Crosby can at least push one of these over.

MLB April 20th

13-12 on MLB in 2018 down 3.1 units

Indians ML at -117 for 4 units. O’s have their best pitcher on the mound (Dylan Bundy), but I do not think it will be enough to secure a win here. The Indians have been playing better of late than at the start of the season. The line seems like it should be closer to -140, so I am taking the value here.

Blue Jays ML at +174 for 3 units. Tilting a little here. Blue Jays have to beat the Yankees once in this series, right? Sonny Gray hasn’t given up a home run this season, but he has given up 25 baserunners in 13 innings. I think +174 is just way too good of value to pass up. Blue Jays should be able to get some runs in this one.

Red Sox ML at -118 for 2 units. Just going to keep riding the Red Sox till they lose. Mad I didn’t bet them last night. Plus, Kendall Graveman has been awful this season for the Athletics.

Red Sox over 4.5 runs at -120 for 1 unit. Graveman fade.

Tennis April 20th

3-1 on tennis up 1.65 units

Nadal ML at -910 for 3 units. Dimitrov has never beat Nadal on Clay. Nadal has won this tournament 10 times. Nadal hasn’t lost a set this calendar year. Just going to keep riding him in Monte Carlo. Simple.
