Prior to this series against the Milwaukee Bucks, I locked in Boston at +450 to win the Eastern Conference. Why? I like their coach better, I like that Kyrie Irving has deep postseason credentials and I think they’re tougher. Tonight, that will prove itself when the Celtics cover the -1.5 points at home. Further, Celtics are 19-3 ATS as a playoff favorite under Brad Stevens, 8-0 when that spread is less than three points.
I like the Bucks, I just don’t think they win a Game 3 scenario in Boston against this team.
I also pick a horse in the wide-open Kentucky Derby and before you criticize that pick, I need you to realize that I have no fucking idea what I’m talking about and I’m just guessing. The pick is Roadster, at 5-to-1, by the way.
Other picks from Walk The Line tonight:
Blazers -4 vs. Nuggets
Canes over Islanders
Blues over Stars
Dodgers run line over Padres
