NBA Playoffs May 19th

32-25-2 on NBA Playoffs up 19.85 units

Celtics +6.5 for 2 units. Just going to keep riding the Celtics. Defense travels. The Cavs 3-point shooters will shoot better at home, but I expect a close game here. Lebron knows he has to win this game if he wants to stay alive these playoffs. If this game was Thursday I would have bet the Celtics harder, but the days off will help the Cavs regroup more than it will help the Celtics. Brad Stevens is just a lot better of a coach than Lue (obviously).

Cavs – Celtics over 205 for 2 units. Neither game has gone over this number, but I think the first game in The Land will.

Kevin Love over 19 points at -110 for 2 units. Kevin Love had 22 last game and he usually shoots well at home. His 3 has looked pretty silky this series even though he only went 2-6 last game from deep. Lebron will need help from someone if they want to stay alive and Love is the prime candidate.

Kyle Korver over 11 points at -112 for 2 units. Korver had 11 last game. I think he will drain some 3s back in The Land. This is more of a gut feeling than anything.

JR Smith under 12 points for 2 units. I think the Celtics know they can’t let him going and he will get frustrated like we saw last game. Smith could always get hot and make some ridiculous 3s, but I like this play.

Tennis May 19th

23-11-1 on tennis up 7.01 units

Zverev -229 for 2 units. This is Cilic’s first-ever semifinal in a Masters clay event. Zverev finally lost a set to Goffin, but he still came out on top in the match. Zverev is 1-0 vs Cilic on clay and 4-1 overall. Alexander Zverev could be a little more fatigued than Cilic, but I still think he pulls this one out. These are two strong servers, but Zverev is stronger basically everywhere else on the tennis court.
