Winnipeg Jets vs Florida Panthers
Pick: Over 6.5 (-115) 1 unit
Denver Nuggets to win series (+215)
This is a very big game for the Cavaliers franchise. Eerily similar to the importance of the Timberwolves making the playoffs. The last time they made the playoffs without Lebron was 1998. Winning tonight's game will be a huge leap forward for this team and city. They have all the motivation to win.
When you watch the Nets game, it’s obvious that the Cavs were inexperienced and had jitters to start the game. But, being down by 20 and competing to the very end, was encouraging and will give them confidence heading into this game.
Atlanta sucks on the road. They are only 16-25 SU. The Cavs are covering 64% this season as a home underdog. They are also 25-16 SU at home.
I think their 5th ranked defense shows up tonight and they get the win.
Pick: Cleveland +2 (1.5 units) ml +110 (.5 units)
New Orleans vs LA
I really believe New Orleans can pull off the upset. Unlike the Timberwolves, the Pelicans have above-average defensive guards and a Big Man that actually plays in the post. JV will be a problem for LA.
The Pels have beaten LA 4/5 meetings. Now with PG out, I also like the over.
Pick: New Orleans +1 (1 unit) Over 214 (1 unit)
.75 units each:
Royals ML (-120)
Marlins ML (-125)
Hawks/Cavaliers under 223
