Hawks only advantage is that they play in Arizona once a year. However, they will not be at home and for sure they will not be healthy. I like the playing styles of both teams, but Brady is just the quarterback who can grind the game all the way down and win it vs Seattle's zone defense. Edelman will probably have 15 catches for 65 yards, while gronk beats an injured Earl Thomas up top. Play is not finalized, but you see my lean. Fck the public numbers right now this is the chip.
If there was a percentage here, it would be something like 54/46 or 53/47 in favor of Detroit. Scherzer is 1-4 lifetime at fenway, while Buccholz has never had a decision in the playoffs with a 5.40 ERA lifetime postseason.
If you really need a play, it should be Detroit OR good decision would be to wait for in-game. Tigers strike early and they have a great shot at extending to game 7. Haven't made my play yet, but leaning toward a 1-2 unit play on Detroit.
Toronto Maple Leafs +112 (3u)
- Like the goalie matchup in this one in which price hasn't been all too successful vs Toronto. Toronto were successful against the Canadiens last year and Reimer is 2-0 @ Montreal. I would actually recommend the over here, but focusing on picking side winners here first.
Might come back with a play on the Blackhawks in a few... For now let's go Toronto
Bumgarner historically pretty good vs LAD, and SF hits Ryu with Panda set to make his comeback tonight after clubbing a few dingers in the minors. In the end i'm gonna go with the better team here, and even with injuries its SF. Their recent slump will stop me from going larger but I have a regular play on them tonight. Also I like betting against teams especially mediocre teams like the dodgers after their first game back from a road trip.
Thoughts for other games? Also thinking about fading the jays win streak as I suspect a good spot for TB to break it tonight. Tough but plays should be tough today with only 4 games.
Giants -104 2u
5-0 start to this series, hope to keep it up.
We know the heat will play hard, from lebron to the role players. But the heat cannot blow the spurs out on their home court. I do not see either team shooting lights out like the spurs did in game 3. If I were to touch a side, I'd nibble at MIA Ml but my instincts say the spurs will go up 3-1. Either way, it will be a mid-high 80's type of game. So my play is under the total.
