Welcome back brothers, after a brief Vegas respite, we are back at it again. We’ve got quite a bit going on this weekend, so there’s a lot to choose from. All I can tell you is I’m feeling good, baby. A week in Vegas reinvigorates the gamblers soul. It reenergizes the engine that makes this train run. It refocuses our aim. We are ready to rock and roll today, brothers. We’ve got it all in front of us for the taking. With the help of our great friends at OddsShark, we will bring home all the wins we can handle and then some.

Winnipeg Jets at Vegas Golden Knights (VGK -120, Total 5.5)–Vegas has controlled all but two periods in this series thus far, the first period of Game One and the third period of Game Three. This is an important game for the Golden Knights because should they lose and this series is 2-2, they face the prospect of having to win a second game in Winnipeg, which is not an easy task. The Knights seem to have found something in Games 2 and 3, by coming out and playing with as much speed as possible. I think we see it again with another fast start by the home team. I’m riding with my guys. THE PICK: VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS
Boston Celtics at Cleveland Cavaliers (CLE-6, Total 205)–This line is incredible. I mean truly incredible. If you look at LeBron’s stats off of double digit losses this season, the Cavaliers are absolutely atrocious ATS. Most people who are leery of this line do so because they’re afraid of LeBron off a loss. Don’t be. The rest of this Cavs team is bad. Very bad. This line is a gift, just like the first two were. Take the points and don’t think twice. THE PICK: BOSTON CELTICS +6
Houston Rockets at Golden State Warriors (GSW -7, Total 226.5)–Another case of don’t overthink it. We all know Golden State is the better team here. They’ve fallen into an interesting pattern of three blowouts and then themselves getting blown out in these playoffs. They bounce back very well each time and Game Three will be no different. Lay the points and don’t worry about this. THE PICK: GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS -7
Tomorrow morning over a billion people will watch the Royal Wedding. Whether you’re into the Royals, or your wife or girlfriend has it on in the background, there’s no reason you can’t make some money on the thing if it’s going to be on TV, right? Here are some prop bets to cash a little on an early Saturday morning.
PRINCE HARRY’S RESPONSE TO HIS VOWS–The favorite is “I Do” at -7500, but I like “Any Other Response” at +2000. Both his brother and father responded to their vows “I Will”. I think at +2000 you roll the dice that he responds as they did.
WHAT COLOR HAT WILL THE QUEEN WEAR–This is a tricky one because the Queen likes to wear bold colors so she is easily noticed in a crowd. She wore yellow to Prince William’s wedding, and she wears blue most frequently. I’m going a little outside the box here and saying purple at +1400. Purple is the color of royalty, after all, and not to mention the Queen just looks quite lovely in purple.
CELEBRITY GUEST TO ATTEND WEDDING–You can bet on lots of people here like Simon Cowell, Piers Morgan, “Any” Kardashian, Barack Obama or Donald Trump. I’m not taking any of those. I want a little value here. I’m going Ed Sheeran. He’s British, he’s popular, he’s a ginger, and I think he performs at the reception. He has two songs that are made for weddings in “Perfect” and “Thinking Out Loud”. You can grab him at +600.
That’s it brothers, let’s get out there and enjoy this weekend and cash some tickets.
