The bomb blew up in our hand, Bruins blow a 3-1 lead in the final 2 minutes and lose in overtime. UN FUCKING BELIEVABLE! A profitable week is likely out of the question now as that one set us back 5 units in the wrong direction. I still think it was worth the risk because if we won it, we would make up a lot of what we lost the first half of the week. They had the game won and some how some way just stopped playing in the final 2 minutes. I don’t have anything positive to say after that, I’m still fucking pissed. Back to 1 unit plays tonight and I’ll do my best to put us in position for a winning weekend to limit the damage on the week. Atleast the World Series starts tonight :) We have some juiced plays but I’m just trying to stop the bleeding of the losing streak and get some momentum going into tomorrow.
Golden Knights ML / Hurricanes ML (-159)
The Golden Knights come in 7-0 and will host the 2-5 Blackhawks who they just beat 5-4 last Saturday.
Vegas has averaged just under 2 more goals per game than Chicago this season and their goaltending has been better allowing 1.86 goals per game compared to 3.
The Hurricanes will host the 0-6-1 Sharks who just got blown out 6-0 last night.
The Hurricanes have averaged 3.75 goals per game and they should put up a big number tonight against Sharks goalie Kaapo Kahkonen who is 9-22 since last season and is 39th in GA/G this season.
Celtics ML / Clippers ML (+103)
The Celtics will have their much anticipated home opener tonight with the new look squad and I’d expect the crowd to be buzzing. They will host the Heat who they lost to in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals last year.
The Heat almost lost to the Pistons in their first game while the Celtics looked unstoppable at times and had a nice late comeback vs good Knicks team in their opener. The Heat already have guys dealing with injuries and I think they are going to have a tough time matching up against the new look Celtics.
The Clippers started the season 1-0 vs the Blazers which isn’t saying much but they will go up against the Jazz tonight who gave up 130 points in their opener.
A healthy Kawhi and PG3 duo looked good in their opener and they were up as much as 30 at one point.
I like both of these teams to win for us and cash the +103 tonight.
Alt Lines Player Prop Parlay
Jaylen Brown 15+ Points / Kristaps Porzingis 15+ Points / Klay Thompson 15+ Points (-110)
Jaylen only had 11 in the opener but he went 4 for 11 from the field. He went fot 15+ in 6 of 7 games against the Heat in the playoffs last year. He’s also going to get a warm welcome from the home crowd after his massive contract extension during the offseason.
Porzingis had 30 in the opener so it seems pretty likely that he can come up with 15 points in the home debut tonight. He’s averaged 15+ for 8 straight seasons so he should get his 15+ tonight.
Klay fucked us in his opener but he was still able to score 15. He had 15 and the only went 6 for 18 and 3 for 11 from three. He went for 15+ in 6 of the 7 games vs the Kings in the playoffs last season and he will definitely get his shot attempts tonight.
Rangers (Eovaldi) (-162) STRONG
Nathan Eovaldi has been on fire in the playoffs going a perfect 4-0 while pitching 6+ innings in all 4 starts and posting a 2.42 ERA. Only 3 guys in the DBacks lineup have ever faced him so I think that’s an advantage for him going into tonight.
Zac Gallen will start for the DBacks and he’s lost back to back starts in the playoffs where he’s allowed 9 runs in his last 11 innings pitched. Gallen faced the Rangers twice this season and they beat him 6-4 in the meeting in Texas.
There’s no question that both of these teams come into the World Series with all the momentum in the world after surprising Game 6 and 7 performances from both where it looked like they were done.
I’m taking Texas in Game 1 because I trust Eovaldi more and the Rangers bats have scored 20 runs in their last 2 games plus Gallen has struggled in back to back starts and the Rangers already beat him this season.
