1-1 last night since the Indians couldn’t score 1 more run for us and left 10 runners on base. Atleast the Lakers almost covered in 3 quarters. 9-4 on the week with the Saturday Sunday 1 2 punch coming up!
Indians (McKenzie) (-180) – I’m drinking the juice on this one since these fuckers could only score 1 run last night. Triston McKenzie held the Tigers to 2 hits over 6 innings earlier this season. The Indians lineup comes in with a .337 avg against Spencer Turnbull in 101 career at bats. They should pound him in this game and they should get McKenzie the run support he needs.
Result – Loss
Stars / Lightning Over (5) – These two played each other twice in the regular season and there were 5 and 7 total goals scored in those games. The recent trends point to the under but both of these teams are going to be full of energy for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals. I like the number at 5 and we can settle for a push with a 3-2 final. The Lightning have scored 3+ goals in 10 of their 16 playoff games and the Stars have scored 3+ in 12 of their 21 playoff games. Give me the over at 5.
Result – Push – Stars 4 Lightning 1
Miami / Louisville Over (65) – These two teams went head to head last year and there were 79 total points scored. Miami won that game 52-27. Miami’s offense looks a lot different than last year but they are loaded and brought in transfer QB D’eriq King. His dual threat ability along with the strong trio of Miami running backs will be a tough test for this Louisville defense that ranked #111 against the run last year giving up 200+ rushing yards per game. Louisville’s offense showed the ability to strike the big plays last week and I expect the same tonight. QB Micale Cunningham threw for 343 yards and 3 TD last week. Even though Louisville lost to Miami last year, they still averaged 7.8 yards per play. It’s also nice to see that Louisville scored 35 points through 3 quarters last week and Miami scored 31 points through 3 quarters last week. I expect these teams to light up the scoreboard tonight!
Result – Win – Miami 47 Louisville 34
Celtics (-150) – I’m not even going to go in depth here. The Celtics were up 17 and 14 in the first 2 games of this series but couldn’t close. They’ve dominated at times. The league doesn’t want the Heat to go up 3-0 in the East when the Nuggets Lakers series just started last night. Not my most analyzed game of all time but these are facts. Go Celts.
Result – Win – Celtics 117 Heat 106
