2.0% wager on Rockets -5.0 @ -114 odds
2.0% wager on Bucks -5.5 @ -110 odds
Russell Westbrook's return has changed the series for the Rockets, they are now clearly the better squad and played like it last game, even with Westbrook not playing that well. Also, NBA favorites since 2016 are 49-19 coming off a win in their previous game in which they were also favorites and playing against a team who put up a 35% or less field goal rate in the previous game. The Thunder do not have the fire power or defense to keep up with the Rockets. Now, the Rockets do not have great defense themselves, but Chris Paul and Schroeder cannot carry the load against Harden and Westbrook.
Interesting fact, the Miami Heat are 2-9 since January 24th, 2020 when considered the dog in a matchup. Not only are they the dog, they are the dog against, arguably, the best team in the NBA when they are clicking. The Bucks seemed to have found themselves after a lackadaisical game one in which they were upset. We expect them to be mentally prepared against a very gritty Heat squad.
1.0% wager on the Avalanche vs Stars over 6 goals @ -112
Obviously, both squads have been scoring whenever they decide, dating back to both of their last series matchups. Three goals for each side in this series in each game, seems to be locked in at this point. You have Francouz vs Khudobin, two very capable regular season goalies, but clearly they are having some post-season issues with jitters or preparedness. Since August 15th, 2020, the total going over is 7-0 when the over hit in the previous game against the same team; the Stars are 14-9-2 since February 15th 2020. Both squads are going to be gunning for each other; one to end the series and the other to keep it alive. This should be a very exciting games.
