Behind Enemy Lines, NHL Frozen Four Playoffs

Yo, this is Nicky and we’re going to finally jump into the NHL fray as so often is the case you’ve gotta’ lay so much juice to get a decent line that there is no value there but there’s a break in the trend tonight. In game six I’m gonna’ lay the lumber and take Vancouver (-130) to hold serve at home and push the series to a game 7. They are ridding some serious mo’ coming back from the brink of elimination and I going with the qualitative feel on this one as Cannucks dominated the BHawks in game 5 in ChiTown with a 4-1 win and I think they may has a formula for continued success. Here’s the statline, and that’s the chowder, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up.

Behind Enemy Lines, NBA Conference Semi-Finals

Ok, this is Nicky and there’s no doubt that this is not football season as we are have just been getting whacked by the NBA Playoffs so we need to go on a roll to get back in into the positive column. On Saturday I like the Lakers (+4.5) going into Utah. I know the last 3 times these teams have matched up the Lakeshow won games 1 and 2 and dropped game 3 in Utah, but think about last year’s game it was a missed 3 by Kobe at the buzzer that could have given LA the win and they were in hunt the entire game. However this time they are on a massive 4 days of rest and for a team that plays as well on the road as they do that could spell the end for Utah. AK-47 is going to play but is that really going to make that big of a deal? Do you think he’s healthy enough to cover the Momba? It may end up hurting more than helping in the end, and his shot certainly won’t be ready for “playoff game speed”, lastly w/Phoenix taking care of business and going up 3-0 LA wants to keep pace. Take it and bid it. That’s the chowder, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your glove’s up!

Behind Enemy Lines, NBA Conference Semi-Finals

Yo, this is Nicky back to jump into the NBA fire. We’ve been getting it handed to us the last couple of NBA Playoff games so we need to rally and get back in the black so let’s get to it. We’re getting to the time when there’s a month between playoff games which really helps the veteran teams, so there’s only one game in the Association tonight but its crucial one and I know the Spurs know they cant beat the Suns 4 out of 5 so a loss tonight all but seals their fate and I like the Spurs (+3) to not only cover but win this one on the court. I know they can hold serve at home but the crafty vets and Popovich will make adjustments and keep this one close. That’s the chowder, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!
