Behind Enemy Lines in the NBA Playoffs

Yo, this is Nicky and Golden State made it easy on us to bring our record to 15-10 over the last month. We’ve had a pretty good feel for the NBA so let’s stick with it. In the late game on Saturday I like the Rockets -1 (I don’t call them the Rockettes when I got money on em’!) to beat the Thunda’ at home. Before you even try to retort with the “team will rally behind their fall player”, “win one for the Gipper”, stuff. OKC would have already been in trouble in this one to begin with as Houston shoots exceptionally well at home and had the potential to win this even before Westbrook went down. Why? The Rockets strength is at guard and that’s where the Tunda’ will be woefully short, throw in Martin defecting to OKC, Harden being sent packing, a ruckus Houston crown welcoming their first playoff home game, it’s a recipe for a cover. That’s the weekend chowda’, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your glove’s up!

Behind Enemy Lines in the NBA Playoffs

Yo, This is Nicky and we’ve been on the sidelines waiting for the playoffs to begin on the main site although if you’ve been following us on twitter or the blog you know we’ve gone 14-10-1 over the last 25, but now’s the for us to check into the game and there is some good value on the board so let’s get to it. On Thursday night, I like Memphis Grizzlies (-4 buy the hook) at home against the Clipps in a ‘must win’ situation. Memphis had huge hopes for this season, expectations that they haven’t lived up to and they know if they lose game 3 the season is over. LA is 3-6 ATS their last 9 games on the road and I look for them to get hammered on the boards in this one dramatically slowing down Lob City. That’s the NBA playoff chowda’ I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!
