2.0% wager on Bucks -6.0 @ +105 odds
The line is right where it should be and the Bucks are desperate for a win. We think they overachieve tonight, bringing their best game of the playoffs after the referee decided the last game in this series. The way game 2 ended with Jimmy Butler at the line with 0.0 seconds on the clock and he rolls his first free throw off the rim and in, just has to burn. Milwaukee has underperformed and let the grit of the Heat outplay them, not their skill.
2.0% wager on Rockets +6.0 @ -110 odds
A little nervous that the Rockets come out flat after that emotional game 7 victory last time out, just as Denver Nuggets did against the LA Clippers. We have this line being only 3 points so we are getting an extra 3 here and with two competitive teams, that goes a long way. We expect Westbrook is getting his lungs in shape and getting the feel of playoff basketball as he continues to play and practice. The Lakers have struggled in bubble play and we are still not believers in their conviction to win these playoffs.
1.0% wager on VAN Canucks Moneyline @ +188 odds
The lines in this series have been completely off, these two teams are much closer in strength then the line implies. Therefore, a game 7 is not that surprising. This is more of a hedge against our futures bet for Vegas to win the cup than anything else. In the end, it's a game 7 and anything can happen; plus 188 is always nice too.
1.0% wager on COL Avalanche Moneyline @ -134 odds
We have the Avalanche winning the cup and as the best team in the West. They have battled through adversity and plenty of injury to get to this game 7, so expect them to come out firing. The coaching staff should have them focusing on fundamentals and the small things because that will allow their skill to shine naturally. You just have to love all of these game 7s around the NHL playoffs!
