2008 MLB RECORD: 15-10
LAST WEEK: 4-2
If you followed all of my picks from yesterday you would a frustrated as me with the fact that the Marlins let a nice lead go, only to come back and win by a run, unfortunately not covering the ATS line. The things that ruin a perfect day. But the good thing about the world I live in is that a mild set back like that can get cured by some late night online Pai Gow. And with that I simply tell you that life is good and we have another full slate on Sunday Funday, so click below to read on.
LA Lakers -1 @ Boston Celtics
Amazingly, the Celts were at -3 on Thursday night and won by 10, and somehow they only come out at +1 today, doesn't make sense does it? Well, it does in my mind cause I am part of the 95% of the population that believe the Lakers are walking away with another title, and to do that they need to win tonight. You can be guaranteed that Phil Jackson learned in the 2nd half on Thursday exactly what Doc is going to try to do all series to shut down their offense, and I have complete confidence that the zen master will have it all figured out by tip off. This will be a much different game cause defense won't necessarily be the concern, the Lakers will win outright tonight because they simply have the capability of putting up more points more consistently. Plus we all know that Ray Allen had his good game for the series. Jump on this one early, cause it opened at -1.5 Boston. Lakers win 101-92.
Chicago Cubs even money @ LA Dodgers
I like this one alot, pretty scientific huh? Let me throw some data at you. The Cubbies are the highest scoring team in the bigs at 5.5 a game, and they have scored 0 and 3 respectively their last 2 outings, sounds like a big day at the plate to me. Also, the Windy City Heroes win 2 out of every 3 games, they have now lost 2 in a row, sounds like a win on Sunday Funday to me. The Dodgers suck, the Cubs do not. With both starting pitchers have over a 5 ERA, I love the over also. Cubbies win 8-5.
San Francisco Giants @ Washington Nationals -1.5(+193)
I normally don't like puttin' my diaper money on two losing squads, but I have to today cause Barry Zito for the Giants has been absolutely horrific this year posting a 5.87 ERA and more importantly a 1-9 record. In addition, the Nats have dropped the first two games of this series at home, and we all know that getting swept at home is like walking into your bedroom and finding your mom and your best friend in some contorted clockwork orange-like position. Nats win 7-4.
