Its Do or Die for the Kids from OKC



Yo, this is Nicky and we’ve really started to measure up the NBA Finals, winning our last three picks including the over 191.5 in game 4. Now we’re posed with the question if the Heat are going to close out the Kids tonight and that’s the rub. Normally I take the leader and don’t think twice because the team that’s down knows there’s no way they’re taking three straight but the Thunder are just young enough to not know any better. They actually think if they get the series back to OKC they can still pull this thing off, and you know what? They’re right. If they do get this back to the Thunder Dome they will probably be favorites in games 6 and 7, unfortunately the Heat believe that as well and that’s why they are going to polish this series off at home, tonight. I’m going to take the Heat (-3 buy it if you don’t get it) to get the monkey off their backs and celebrate at home. That’s the chowder, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!

Behind Enemy Lines in the NBA Finals

Yo this is Nicky and it may have been very stressful down the stretch but we picked up another win in the NBA Finals, and I don’t wanna see any more post a about how stupid it is to buy the hook because that saved us again and you should never let that ½ point take food off your table. Ok, tough one tonight so let’s get to it. In Game 4 I like the over 191.5 (once again buy that hook) as this is OKC’s season and dream tonight and they know it. If they go down 1-3 then go ahead and fit Miami Thrice for rings so they will come out and go down shooting. As well played defensively as last game was it still got close and I expect the Thunda’ to shoot much better in this game. Also the line is 3 so don’t throw OT out of the picture. That’s the chowda’, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!

Behind Enemy Lines in the NBA Finals

Yo this is Nicky, and these have been some tough games to call but it’s time to get back in the saddle so let’s get to it. As the scene in the NBA Finals shifts to Miami so does the line Miami (-4.5) and I’m going to buy it down to 4 and take the Heat. I think they can see the light at the end of a tumultuous tunnel now that they have home court and will come out on fire defensively and throw an intensity at the kids that they haven’t seen before. Moreover the Thunder do not shoot very well on the road and they will need to do just that as it will be a hostile environment in South Beach waiting for them. That’s the chowder, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!

Behind Enemy Lines in the NBA Finals



Yo, this is Nicky and we’ve been on a bit of a roll lately hitting two NBA games, Game 6 of the NHL Finals and a first round EuroCup game, so let’s keep the momentum rolling in the NBA Finals. In Game 1 you have to wonder if the lights of the NBA Finals will be too bright for the youngstas’ from OKC even though they’ve played well in the first game of their other series. I don’t think they’ve never seen the type of defensive intensity the Heat are going to throw at them and it will take its toll early in the game. I look for the Heat to get out to the early lead and for the Thunda’s atheism to close the gap in the second half and maybe pull it out in the end. Either way, I think 5 points is too much lumber and I like the Heat plus the number in this one. That’s the chowder, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your glove’s up!

Behind Enemy Lines in Game 5s

Yo, This is Nicky the Fish and we’ve taken as much as we’ve given in this year’s NBA Playoffs and now with a couple of Game 5’s that might as well be Game 7’s we will surely be tested but let’s get to it. On Monday I like OKC (+5.5 buy the hook) to play a close game with the Spurs on the road. They have outplayed the Spurs for 11 of the last 12 quarters and unless San Antonio shoots as well as they did in game 1 and for one quarter in game 2 the Thunda’ should win this one on the court. Either way, I don’t think you will see a ten point cushion again in this series starting with Game 5. That’s the chowder, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!
