You may not trust the Celtics, but my money does. Boston was volatile during the season and looked lost at times on the road, but this is the playoffs. The Celtics have the only true star player in this series, they have a coaching advantage and my money says Boston rolls into Indiana tonight and takes control of the series.
That’s the pick in Indiana. But my favorite pick of the night is in Orlando, where the Raptors will also take control of a series. In the last two postseasons, road favorites are on a run, converting against the spread at a rate of 73 percent (30-11-1).
Walk the Line is entering its third week of existence next week and it continues to be the best Mississippi-based gambling show on Barstool Sports. You can watch it every night at 6 p.m. on periscope by following @BarstoolGamblin on Twitter.
My other picks tonight:
Thunder -6 1H against Blazers
Avalanche +155 over Flames: Avs may very well lose but they’ve been the better team in this series and I can’t resist the price.
Angels ML over Mariners.
