First of all, take a minute to appreciate the splendor of that shirt I’m wearing in this video. It’s a piece of art.
“Avoid the Clap – Jimmy Dugan.” Great advice and a great piece of sports movie nostalgia. Anyway, you want winners. I do too. And tonight I’m headed to the NBA for my favorite two picks.
I feel like the public is backing the Celtics a little too much after their Game 1 victory. Yes, they looked good. But tonight isn’t Game 1. At 60-22, the Bucks won more games than any NBA team this season, and the NBA’s wins leaders is converting 62 percent ATS in the last 15 years in the NBA Playoffs after a loss. While I think Boston wins the series and ultimately the East, I think Milwaukee throws a strong counter-punch tonight and covers the 7.5 points.
Other picks from Walk the Line today:
Warriors (-5.5) over Rockets
Bruins (Even) over Blue Jackets
Avalanche (-130) over Sharks
Mariners ML (+120) over Cubs.
