NBA 2008 PLAYOFFS ATS: 11-4
MLB 2008 ATS RECORD: 5-5
Not much for words on this Sunday Funday, just some hidden gems when you click below. Will the luck of the Irish prevail?
Cleveland Cavs @ Boston Celtics -7.5
I am finally giving in to the fact that home court in the playoffs is actually as big of a deal as it has been showing so far. Never would I imagine that a team could win by 20 at home then lose by 20 two nights later on the road against the same friggin' team, but it has happened several times already during the playoffs. I have got to believe that the Celts are going to buckle down on D, and they will do that by letting Bron Bron have his way and shutting down the other 4 that are on the court. If LeBron gets in the mentality that he has to do it all himself, that will officially be the end of the season for the Cavs. Garnett and Pierce will have big days on the offensive side, Celts win by 12.
Toronto Blue Jays -105 moneyline @ Philadelphia Phillies
The Jays are sending Shaun Marcum to the hill today and he has absolutely been on fire posting a 2.22 ERA and winning his last 3 outings. He also goes deep in games, and there is nothing better than the starter being in complete control of the final score outcome. For the Phillies, they bring Kendrick to the rubber, he gives up almost 5 a game and interestingly enough so do the Phils as a team. Jays win 6-2.
LA Dodgers @ LA Angels +181 (-1.5)
Neither starter today create much buzz in the local barber shops, but I have my eye on Jered Weaver for the Angels simply because he posted a hell of a start going 7 innings and no runs in his last outing. When you couple that with the fact that the Angels seem to own the Dodgers in head-to-head matchups, it makes me really like 'em at +181 today. It may be risky but I think Weaver is going to post a strong outing. Angels win 5-3.
