April 20th Picks Recap

April 20th Picks Recap

Our 3rd straight winning day. Didn’t have the best night in the NBA (1-2) but made up for it with a solid night in both the NHL & MLB.

Recap: 3-2 +2.65*

NBA

3* PACERS -1 -110 ✅

The Pacers come home after getting a very impressive split in the first 2 games of this series in Cleveland where they could have very easily won both games. This gives them the momentum coming back to Indiana.  It took a super human performance from Lebron James just to get the win in game 2 and I don’t see him being able to match what he did last game tonight. In my opinion, the Pacers are a very underrated team while the Cavs tend to be overrated based on years past even though they are not the same team they used to be. All the value is in Indiana tonight as I expect them to get it done in game 3.

3* RAPTORS +1.5 -110 ❌

The Raptors are a very legit threat to win the East and there is no reason for the Raptors to be underdogs in this game tonight. The Raptors have a mix star power with a deep bench and a are the 3rd best team in the NBA according to efficiency stats (just behind Houston and Golden State). They have really showed it in this series taking the first 2 games easily. Even though it is an away game I still believe the Raptors will have no trouble going up 3-0 tonight.

2* CELTICS +5.5 -110 ❌

The fact that the Celtics are up 2-0 in the series yet are 6 point underdogs is confusing especially because of the styles of play of these teams. Both the Bucks and Celtics play a slower paced game meaning lower scoring tighter games. While there was 226 points score in game 2 both teams shot at a unusually high percentage which I don’t see happening again tonight. The Celtics have a lot of young talent that have stepped up in the absence of Kyrie Irving and are showing they can compete with out him. Take the points in what should be a great close game tonight.

MLB

3* RED SOX ML -130 ✅

The Red Sox (16-2) come into Oakland (9-10) off a dominating sweep of a good Angels team where they outscored them a whopping 27-3 in the series. The pitching matchup is Kendall Graveman for the A’s who has struggled bad this year and has to face the number one offense in baseball tonight. Drew Pomeranz will start for the Sox for the first time this year after an impressive 17-6 season last year. Boston has easily been the best team in baseball and at -130 there’s no reason not to ride them while they are scorching hot against an average at best A’s team.

NHL

3* PREDATORS U6 -110 ✅

The Predators can wrap up the series against the Avalanche tonight at home. They allowed the 2nd least amount of goals in the NHL this season behind only the LA Kings. The Predators should be able to control the game tonight at home and I expect a big time defensive effort to shut down a pretty good Avalanche offense as they try and avoid going back to Colorado for game 6.  Pekka Rinne had an outstanding playoffs last year and he should come up big again tonight.
