NBA Playoffs May 23rd

40-30-2 on NBA Playoffs up 23.21 units

Celtics -1 for 2 units. Celtics have not lost a game at home this postseason. I think this game will be called evenly now that Lebron is not down in the series. Kevin Love is a little hurt and Lebron has not looked great away from home this series. I think Brad Stevens makes the necessary adjustments and the Celtics get a win tonight.

Celtics – Cavs over 206 for 1 unit. Just a gut feeling. Last game soared over and I expect more of the same here.

Celtics pk 1st Quarter for 4 units. Celtics got down big in both of their first quarters in Cleveland this series. They know they can’t do that tonight or the series is over. I expect the Celtics to come out strong in the first quarter tonight at home.

JR Smith under 12 points for 2 units. JR does not play as well away from home. JR Smith is 2-4 at hitting over this number away from home this postseason. The 2 he went over were against the Raptors. I think the Celtics have a lot better perimeter defense than the Raptors.

Terry Rozier over 17 points for 3 units. Rozier has averaged 17.1 points a game this postseason, but he averages 20 points at home this postseason. Rozier will play a lot of minutes with Larkin still out. If he can make 2 three pointers, I think this hits easy.


NHL Playoffs May 23rd

43-45-6 in Hockey up 6.84 units

Caps – Lightning over 5.5 at +110 for 3 units. Four out of the six games in this series have gone over. Andrei Vasilevskiy has been playing well, but the Caps have just been getting so many shots on goal. The Capitals played more physical last game than any other point in the series. I think the Lightning will respond to this physicality with some adjustments tonight that should lead to goals.

Caps at +132 for 3 units. Caps just have too much firepower to lose this series in my opinion. Alex Ovechkin and Tom Wilson were physical in Game 6 and I expect that to carry over. T.J. Oshie was solid. If the Capitals execute their game plan again (like they did in Game 6) they will win. Capitals have played well in Tampa this series so it being an away game for the Capitals does not worry me. I think this game should be a coin flip or the Caps slightly favored; therefore, I am taking the Caps at what I perceive as value.
