Haliburton finishes with 20 with his line at 21.5 just has you shaking your head. Not a losing week but really wanted a better finish to the week. On to Monday to kick off a winning week!

Celtics ML / Dodgers ML (-109) 🥇

  • The Celtics bounced back and took care of business in Game 3 and hopefully they won’t have another one of the take the foot off the gas type games.

  • A BIG factor tonight is that Donovan Mitchell wasn’t at shoot around today due to a calf injury. If he’s not playing then the Celtics will win this game by 20+.

  • If he does play, I still like the Celtics where they are at playing defense like Games 1 and 3 and playing with some urgency to get the win tonight so they can close this series out on Wednesday. 

  • It’s also National Leprechaun Day and last time the Celtics played the Cavs on National Leprechaun Day they won 108-83.

  • The Dodgers will be the second leg and I’ve seen different pitchers listed for them with Yamamoto or Stone but both of those guys have been pitching great in recent starts so I’m good with either one.

  • Jordan Hicks will pitch for the Giants and he’s been pitching good but the Giants have actually lost 4 of his last 5 starts due to their 5th worst bullpen in the league.

  • Good value here but if Mitchell is announced as OUT officially leading up to gametime I’m comfortable taking Celtics on the spread -8.5 straight up.

Thunder / Mavericks Over (215.5) 🥈

  • 2 of the 3 games in this series have gone under but these teams really have the potential to absolutely go wayyy over this number like the regular season when they combined for 257 and 246!

  • The possessions per game are high in these games it’s just the offensive rebounds and long possessions which have taken time off the clock. The Thunder need to be better defensive rebounding and that should be a big time contributor to more points from both sides tonight. 

  • Luka is listed as a game time decision but I expect him to play. 

  • I expect the Thunder to be playing to even this series up and they are playing their best when they play at a high pace and are efficient offensively.
