HEAT -11 8 Dimes,
My POD goes to the HEAT as this line is a joke, it should be -15. it is clear who the dominant team i in this matchup. The Heat have outplayed them in every position. You put Melo's average in last game and the Heat would have swept them and covered ATS, plain and simple. How dejected must Melo feel that he single handidly has to score a career high playoff game just to barely get a win at home. He has no support around him at all. The Heat's defensive lockdowns are insane at home, holding teams to an average of 16 points in the 4th qtr alone. That is an insane stat, and one I feel gives them the cover and the win tonight. The Knicks just dont have enough star power to compete with this team. And Melo aint scorin no 40+ points again here tonight.....Heat by 15+
Clippers +6.5 and ML.
6 Dimes ATS & 3 Dimes ML
I know most will think this is a silly bet. But I know Basketball. I have been watching these two teams ply and even though it has been hard fought every time one glaring thing remains. The Clippers have a mental edge over Memphis. They have too many weapons in Blake Paul Martin and Mo-licious. The Clippers have been able to heavily exploit the interior defense of Memphis, they prove that by getting whatever they want in the paint at any time. This puts a ton of pressure on them to guard the 3 ball which Young, Mo, and even Paul has been able to drain. This matchup is the best one so far in the playoffs, with both teams being aable to dominate the other. But after 4 games the edge goes to the clippers and 6.5 is gift in a game I feel they put to bed tonight.
