I realize that Kevin Durant is a great player. But the Warriors were a great team before he got there, and there’s nothing that tells me they can’t be great in spurts without him. That’s why I think oddsmakers adjusted a little too much with their lines for tonight’s Game 6 in Houston. The Rockets have won twice in this series, one a 126-121 victory in overtime and the other a 112-108 win. Bottom line: Giving the two-time defending champs 7.5 points in a big spot is insane.
I’ll also take Warriors-Rockets over 214.5.
Other picks from Walk The Line tonight:
Mariners-Red Sox Over 10
Nuggets (-5.5) over Blazers (Sunday)
Raptors (-6.5) over Sixers (Sunday)
Sharks (-135) over Blues
