based on stats and current odds, here are my picks:
TURKEY (3 units0
Czech, China, Russia and Canada (all for 2 units each)
Britain ( 1 unit only) - home court adv, 1.5 pts underdog.
IND-4 and Under 151.5
SAS-3.5 and Over 153.5
Wish me luck :D Comments are appreciated. :D Thanks!
LAC @ MEM-8 - I'm liking LAC winning this one. 8 points is a slap on the face of this clips team if they won't cover. Besides, its game 7. Paul is desperate and so is Griffin who both are managing to play despite the injuries they have. Griffin got no jump the past two games, but he has heart. he dives for loose balls and plays good "D" when needed. The Clips just need to stop and deny the ball before it goes into the post with ZBo and Gasol playing so great. DeAndre should step up.
My pick is LAC and I am seeing this to be close. LAC has a chance of getting this one. There has been no upsest on teams going 3-1 this playoff. But what i fear is that Mem wants to have a crack against SAS whom they beat last year. But I believe MEM just won't cover. at the most, they can lead by 7 pts. :D
Foye+Butler+Paul+Young+Griffin+Jordan+Evans = Conley+Gay+Speights+Gasol+Randolph+Allen
I'm liking as well OVER 177.5. 2 out of 3 games went OVER at the MEMPHIS Home floor.
IND @ MIA-8.5 - Im liking IND here.8.5 is too high against a team capable of winning against the HEAT. Based on matchups, they went split during the season The last game they me Pacers even won by 15 points and lose only by 2 points the game before that.
George Hill and Collison will get the better of against the Heat's Chalmers and Cole. Pacers have the advantage. At Shooting Guard - Wade might have a slight edge over George and Barbosa.At SF, Lebron has the advantage definitely - but Granger can worn him out. But the X-Factor in this series is the bigs! I believe WEST and HIBBERT will outplay BOSH and ANTHONY.
I'm also liking the UNDER 188. They will be playing defense on the first outing. At the same time, they haven't played more than 3 days. Rusty start will be on both sides - this will be a defensive game.
LAC +8 and OVER 177.5
IND+8.5 and UNDER 188
Hope we cash this in! :D
My picks are as follow:
WAS+2 and Over 196.5
CHA+14.5 and Under 186.5
Under 196 (Phi vs Mil)
Under 191.5 (LAC vs NYK)
No write ups for today. Key points are as follow:
1. WAS is maintaining its solid end of the season.
2. MIL is facing a resting PHI (no iggy and 3 other starters).
3. CHA is capable of hanging on to this kind of spread more so that Dwight isn't around, nelson is coming off an injury and ORL is on a 3 game slide.
4. NYK simply because Paul will not play for LAC.
Went 5-1 yesterday. =)
Here are my picks:
LAC (+2) - only because this team is better than a no natural center team such as the Atlanta Hawks. There are rumors that Horford may return but such won't have any positive impact for the team. It is just mere presence, nothing else. :p With Griffin and Jordan playing the middle and paul orchestrating the team, no doubt clips will win by 5 or more points. Plus, both butler and young may play for the team for additional fire power. :D
NOH (-2.5) - no way GSW will win without their star players. No lee, curry, wright, biedrins, nate robinson - so what's left for this team? On the other end, there's gordon who is just enough for the his team to beat GSW.
UTA (-4.5) - with frye and hill out, it is only nash who has the experience playing on this tight situation. Gortat will be consistent day in and day out. But against millsap and jefferson? will he be consistent enough? i don't think so. IMO, suns has been knocking down inside with the help of its perimeter offense. but with the absence of frye and hill, no one else can provide such firepower outisde than nash. I'm taking this at the most -5.
If ever available, other picks are as follow:
BOS-5 - No Big 3 for Miami and Rondo is playing! a great deal to bet on the celtic's side.
OKC-5 = Harden out? no problemo! Cousins and Thornton are out! OKC is just a beast to reckon with :D
