61-53-2 on NBA in 2018 up 9.28 units
20-21-2 on NBA this season down 14.83 units
Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! Now place some bets, grab a beer (or egg nog or whiskey drink, or red wine, or kahlua and coffee), and find a room without in-laws….
Bucks/Knicks over 223.5 for 1 unit. Public is on the under. Giannis – Mario Hezonja rematch. Giannis and the Bucks pour it on in this one. The over/under keeps going down, but I like this spot.
Warriors -9 at -105 for 3 units. Lakers don’t have the perimeter defense or 3-point shooters to keep up with Golden State. The Grizzlies shot over 50% from deep on them last time out. Lakers play at one of the fastest paces in the league.. not a good recipe against the Warriors. Kuzma, Ball, and Ingram shoot about 30% from deep this season. Ball sucked from deep against the Grizzlies. Steph and KD are hot. I see a 119-105 type game here.
Bucks/Thunder/Celtics/Warriors Parlay risking 1.5 units to win 5.32 units. Bucks and Warriors will win, which leaves the Celtics and Thunder. Celtics beat the 76ers 4-1 in the playoffs last season and beat them on opening night this season. Joel Embiid said it best, “they always kick our ass.” Horford and Morris are back in the lineup. Kyrie has been streaky lately. Taking Boston at home. Houston lost on Christmas Day last year to the Thunder. The Thunder are better now and the Rockets are worse. Paul George is averaging 35/11 on 47% shooting from deep over the past week. Harden is hot too, averaging 39/9 over the past week. The Thunder’s ability to defend, score from the bench, and rebound win them this game.
