NBA

PHI (-3.5) at TOR (3.5)

Pick: Bet $10 PHI ML

Total: 213 (Lean Over – 217)

Predicted Score: PHI 112 – TOR 105

Notes: Philly is on the verge of a sweep. News broke that Embiid is dealing with a finger injury – which plants the seed should the Sixers choke in the playoffs at some point.

Looks like someone read Karl Malone’s autobiography.

Still, it does look like Philly is ready to close out this series.

Sure, it took a last second, 3-point heave from Embiid to win game 3. But it could have been the demoralizing dagger in the Raptors’ collective hearts.

The Toronto fans have moved on. They have the Maple Leafs to root for before they collapse and then they can root for Vlad and the Blue Jays after that.

$10 moneyline bet on the Sixers.

 

DAL (6) at UTA (-6)

Pick: Bet $10 DAL ML

Total: 212.5 (Lean Over – 226)

Predicted Score: DAL 116 – UTA 110

Notes: Dallas took Game 3 in Utah and now it looks like Luca could be a gametime decision in this game.

The line indicates he won’t play – but it looks like the public and money think he will play.

Well, add me to the mix of people who thinks Luca will end up playing.

He went through a full practice yesterday and seems to be close to 100%.

I previously said “no Luca, no chance” and the Mavs have won 2 of 3.

Add Luca, even in a small capacity, and I think they have a really good chance of bouncing this dysfunctional Jazz team.

One step closer today.

$10 moneyline bet on Dallas.

 

BOS (3) at BKN (-3)

Pick: Lean BOS

Total: 222.5 (Lean Over – 237)

Predicted Score: BOS 122 – BKN 115

Notes: As the series shifts to Brooklyn, the focus will be on Kyrie and Durant to bounce back from a lackluster game 2.

Kyrie looked impacted by the Boston crowd – which won’t be an issue today.

Durant looked impacted by some bullying play from Daniel Theis. Now it looks like Time Lord will be back for the C’s tonight too.

Bruce Brown said that without Williams, the Nets would push the C’s around down low. That has not been the case so far. Now he’s back so we will see how the Nets react to that.

Hard to imagine the Nets going down 3-0. They still have it in them to make this a series.

But I like the Celtics plus the points here.

Leaning Boston.

 

MEM (-3) at MIN (3)

Pick: Bet $10 MEM ML

Total: 232.5 (Lean Under – 219)

Predicted Score: MEM 112 – MIN 107

Notes: You have to wonder how the Timberwolves will bounce back from the game 3 implosion.

Coach Chris Finch has gotten roasted badly for his mismanagement of the big lead in that game.

At least he’s not been made into a Goodfellas gif like Quin Snyder.

You have to imagine that the Grizzlies are sharks here and smell the blood in the water.

Winning game 3 got them homecourt back.

Winning game 4 would be a death knell.

Well, time to start ringing that bell.

$10 moneyline bet on the Grizzlies.

 

NHL

New York Rangers (112) at Boston Bruins (-134)

Pick: Bet $10 Boston

Notes: Kind of an important game for both teams as playoff seeding is still an ever-changing process right now.

The Rangers could jump Carolina in the Metropolitan Division and lock in the 2nd seed in the East.

Boston is fighting with Pittsburgh and Washington to avoid the bottom seed and a nightmare matchup against Florida.

The Rangers have won 4 in a row after beating up the Islanders a few days back.

The Bruins are coming off a shutout loss to the Penguins.

Trust me. I know.

The Rangers are redhot with winning games but their offensive numbers aren’t necessarily as hot.

It hasn’t mattered since Igor Shesterkin is possibly the best goalie in hockey and definitely the favorite to win the Vezina Award.

Boston can match the Rangers defensively and by name brand recognition, they should be able to dominate offensively.

When or if the Boston offense wakes up, it could be a shock to the Eastern Conference playoffs.

I don’t think it comes alive today against Shesterkin – but I do think they produce enough to grab a home win.

$10 bet on Boston.
