Behind Enemy Lines in a Tense Game 5

Yo This Is Nicky and the heat is on, no pun intended, in the Eastern Conference Finals as the all important game 5 is upon us. Every player, or sports enthusiast for that matter knows the stat that 86% of the winners of game 5 have gone on to win the series, so both teams this could be a winner take all. I know how much experience means in a game like this but I also know the Pacers basically won the first two games in Miami and if not for an LBJ layup with .09 this would be a closeout opportunity for the Pacers. In the end, 8 points of lumber might be too much in a game of this intensity so I like Indiana plus 8 big points. That’s the evening chowda’ I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!

Behind Enemy Lines in MLB

Yo this is Nicky and we’re going to shift gears away from the NBA playoffs to the diamond as I see some good value on Sunday evening. I like the Dodgers (+103) to avoid getting swept by the Giants up at AT & T Park. Games 1 & 2 were won by Giant “Walk Offs” in the 9th and 10th respectively and the Dodgers have more than enough motivation to make sure they have some breathing room come the late innings. Moreover I love Ryu (3-1) on the bump for LA. This guy and sling it and should be 4-0 but the normally dependable Dodger relief staff couldn’t hold a lead for him. I know they’re a little short handed with Hanley going back on the DL but I like them to salvage one of the three games tonight. That’s the last of the Weekend Chowda’ I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!
