Good day to all..
I hope everyone was successful in Cashing their Plays, one way or the other yesterday...
I am looking at Both Games tonight as potential Plays...
Game 1.. Sixers/Celtics..
I capped this Game on Saturday for the Sixers to cover which they came through in the end after almost letting the C's cover..
I am a little confused about this Game, the line opened at -5 but has since dropped to -4.5 encouraging more wagers to come in on the C's to Cover at 80% of the Public Play.. Plus 65% of all the ML money is on the C's as well..
This is almost the same scenario as Saturday's game where Vegas got all the Money on the C's to cover, but they Failed to do so..
It would lead me to believe that Vegas thinks the Sixers can cover again, if not win SU...
The Sixers basically owned the Game from the start, if it were not for Turn Overs which the Sixers are the best Team in the league in limiting those, I believe they could have pullled one out in Boston for Game 1..
The Celtics had to rely on Garnett to carry them through out the Game making shot after shot, and Rondo coming through when it mattered..
But other than that no one else really was consistant, and the Celtics were playing catch up all Game long.
I think the Sixers have to feel good about how they played, and if they can cut down on the Turn Overs and make better decisions on their shots I believe this could be another close one..
Game 1.. Lean Sixers +5.. If I play, I always buy the Hook..
Game 2 Lakers/Thunder..
This Game has me very intrigued..
I personally think the Lakers will feel the effects of a 7 Game series against the Nuggets who gave them everything they could handle and more..
Everyone is saying that the Lakers Bigs will dominate this series, but with Gasol & Bynum you never know when they are going to show up and play.. They are very innconsistant and have to be called out every other Game just to get them to play up to their potential..
The Lakers do have Ron Artest back who showed on Saturday he can really help out, but I see Game one getting away from the LAKERS as the game rolls on..
Each game in the season series was close at halftime before the Thunder finnally imposed their will on the Lakers, even the Game Harden was injured the Thunder were up before they let the Lakers back in due to the fact they were missing Harden in the rotation and were unable to produce any scoring from their bench..
I know season series and Playoffs are not to be related, but the one thing that has always been damaging to the Lakers is the opposing teams Point Gaurd play, and I feel like Westbrook should have a big series and a big Game One..
I know it seems like a large number to give the Lakers at +7.5, it must be good to good to be true.
The Lakers will certainly cover this easily right?
Game 2..Play.. Thunder -7 bought the Hook and got it at -115 since they were coming off at -7.5 at -105...
Bol Tonight on everyones play..
