Tozz 3 weeks ago and me the last 2…
1.Hawks @ Cavs (+2)- I can’t believe I’m doing it again but I’m fading the Hawks. I know, I know, I said I wouldn’t but there’s real value here on Cleveland. A home dog in a play-in game, where the home teams are 4-0 so far? The Hawks demolished the Hornets, but they are a siv defensively, the Cavs are not as easy to score on. Evan Mobley should be able to neutralize Clint Capela’s impact. Cleveland dominated the regular season series for what its worth too. I’m on Cleveland.
2.Pels @ Clips (-6)- This line has shifted dramatically for obvious Paul George reasons. I’m on the Pels, this one is a gimmie on the Bettor Edge comp.
3.Rays @ CWS (-1.5)- The Rays have been struggling as of late, they dropped 3 of 4 to the A’s. I’ve got the White-Sox as my WS rep from the AL this year so I’m high on this team, and they just lost 5-1 at home…but this was after they had won their previous 4. I like a bounce back. Just looking @ the ERAs for the pitchers involved, it looks like Chicago has the advantage. Sox -1.5.
4.A’s @ Blue Jays (-1.5)- Don’t look now but the A’s have one of the best records in baseball. I told you at the start of the season, find the bad teams that present value early. The Rockies are one of them, the A’s appear to be the other. Oakland +1.5.
5.Yanks @ O’s (+1.5)- Homer pick. I’ll take the O’s, they play decent @ home, that’s my only shot here. They always play the Yanks tough, 8-11 against the pinstripes last year. O’s +1.5.
6.Braves @ Padres (-1.5)- Tough one. Padres shalacked Atlanta last night, 12-1. That probably means the Braves bounce back strong, but I don’t know…they’ve been struggling early. I’ll ride with the Fathers.
7.Jazz @ Mavs (-3)- Utah is actually a 5 point favorite now, this is another gimmie on the competition. I’ll take Utah.
8.T-Wolves @ Grizz (-7)- The T-Wolves looked great, they are a “vibe” but I think the Grizzlies pounce early and often. Great defense, home court advantage, extended rest. I like Memphis.
9.Raps @ Sixers (-4.5)- Raheem Palmer said to back the Sixers early in this series, he lives in the north east, I’m riding with him. 76ers minus the points.
10.Nuggets @ Warriors (-5.5)- I have no idea what to do with this one, we still don’t know about Curry’s status. I’ll take the Warriors out of respect, but I don’t feel great about it.
