VIP Picks 6/17/24

Solid week for us finishing 12-7 and up 3.18 units depending on your strategy and if you took every play or not. We’ve got Game 5 of the NBA Finals tonight and I am going to be in the building. I can’t even express how PUMPED I am to be able to be in The Garden for a potential clinch game tonight. It’s going to be ROCKIN. LET’S GO CELTICS!!!


NBA:

8:30 EST

SGP

Celtics ML / Jayson Tatum 25+ Points (-117) 🥇

  • The Celtics got embarrassed in Game 4 but return home tonight and they are 16-4 following a loss this season.

  • Early shots weren’t falling for the Celtics and the Mavs were hitting everything. We should see things shift the other way tonight similar to Games 1 and 2 in Boston. The Celtics defense has held the Mavs to less than 100 in all 3 games where the starters actually played in the 4th quarter.

  • As far as Tatum goes, he’s been getting the most shot attempts and scoring opportunities and his shooting percentage was much better in Games 3 and 4 than 1 and 2. 

  • Hopefully JT is ready for this moment tonight.

Player Prop

Payton Pritchard Threes Made Over (0.5) 🥈

  • We took this one in Game 3 and it hit late and it’s good value again tonight at -120.

  • Pritchard has hit at least 1 three in 10 of his last 13 games (77%). 

  • He’s taken an average of 3.8 three point attempts per game in The Finals and he’s hitting at 37% in the playoffs so he should hit one tonight.

  • He’s hit at least 1 three in 7 of his 10 home playoff games (70%).


MLB:

8:40 EST

Dodgers (Paxton) (-1.5) 🥉

  • The Dodgers lost Mookie Betts to a broken hand yesterday but I still like them to cover the -1.5 going into this game. They have covered -1.5 in 2 of the 3 games against the Rockies this season.

  • The LA bats will face Cal Quantrill who they beat 4-1 the first time they faced him this season and they had 9 hits off of him in 4.1 innings. They also come in hitting just under .300 against him lifetime. 

  • 6-1 James Paxton will pitch for the Dodgers and he’s really been quite dominant in 9 of his 12 starts this season. That’s resulted in the Dodgers covering the -1.5 run line in 9 of his 12 starts (75%).

  • Let’s roll with the Dodgers to cover tonight despite not having Mookie at the top of the lineup.
