Behind Enemy Lines, playoff edition

We’re making our way through the mire after going 2 for 2 in the NBA to raise the record to 3-1 thus far in the first round, and also hit our first hockey pick (Caps -250) to go 1-0 in the NHL. Let’s strike while the coals are hot as there appears to be some opportunity this week so let’s get to it. I love the Bulls (-2.5) to come out with a lot of heart and push the Celtics tonight. Boston was 1-2 in game 6’s last year with the only win coming in the Finals vs. the Lakers, look for that trend to continue, take the Bulls and lay the number. I also LOVE Philly -6 to take care of business at home vs. the Magic. With no Superman OR starting point guard, everyone is going to get their answer why JJ Reddick doesn’t play, because he doesn’t play any D! Look for the Philly guards to have big games and win this one. Lastly, look for Portland to stay close in the elimination game (+5.5) vs. the “Rockettes” in a close one. That’s the chowder, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!

Behind enemy lines playoff style

Yo, got some great playoff games going in the Association and on the ice, fun to watch but also some good value as well so let’s get to it. To start I LOVE the baby Bulls +8 in game 5 at the new Gaden’. Gordon is going to play although he may not be that effective. Either way if Rose shows up the Bulls should be able to hang and keep this close. They have already played the C’s within 4 points each game in Boston and even won one game so 8 points seems way too much. Take it and bid it. I also like the points with Philly +8 going into Orlando. These teams just know each other too well at this point, and Howard will get his, but this is another game where the road team can win on the court and the 8 points simply ads value to the equation. Now get this, I’m actually going to make a hockey call as well. I love the Caps (-250 I know it’s pricey) at home to complete the comeback against the Rangers. They should have killed them when they had the chance and now the mo’ is all on the Caps side and they are going to close this one out in one of the best series in a long time. That’s the chowder, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring, and keep your gloves up!

Don't fear the dog in the first round of the NBA

Yo, this is Nicky, it’s been a while since we’ve played NBA round ball but the playoffs are the best time to get busy so let’s get to it. They’re rally giving the home teams a lot of props in the first round, maybe too much for all of the parity in the association. But if they are going to give money away then we are going to take it. With that said, on Sunday take the 9.5 with Philly going into Orlando as that series is much closer than a 3-6, and take the 7 with Nawlins’ at Denver this evening. I know if the Nuggets lose then Karl is done but 7 is just too much lumber for them to cover because CP3 will keep this game close. That’s the chowder, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!
