Everything I Touch Turns to Gold. Tuesday Gambling Picks

Ok maybe that headline is a bit excessive, but if you followed my Monday Gambling Primer picks you know what I'm talking about and you made yourself some money. 5-1 on my picks last. Montreal rolled over Vancouver as I expected them to. They hit the Over 6.5 halfway through the second period. The Hornets erased a late 10 point deficit to win the game in OT. Oklahoma covered pretty much all game. The Bruins game went over, but unfortunately we couldn't get it to OT thanks to Boston breaking the tie with about 3 minutes left in the game. Oh well like they say you can't win them all, but I'll take 5-1 everyday of the week. Let's keep it rolling tonight.


Dallas Stars (ML -108, O/U 5.5) @ Columbus Blue Jackets


Dallas rolls into Columbus tonight coming off back-to-back losses to Carolina. A disappointing series for them against Carolina after winning their first 4 games. Columbus is coming off a 3-1 loss to Chicago their last time out. Columbus's last 3 games have gone under as well. Both teams will be looking to get back on track in this game tonight. I expect both teams to come out with high energy, therefore the puck should be flying around the ice. I like the over in this one with a Dallas win.


Pick: Over 5.5, Dallas ML


Los Angeles Clippers (ML -116, O/U 242.5) @ Brooklyn Nets


A great matchup in Brooklyn tonight in a game that could potentially be an NBA Finals preview. The Clippers are hot, winning 11 of their last 13 games. Brooklyn on the other hand has won 8 of 11. With that being said, I think this is a prove it game for Brooklyn. This is the first big matchup for the trio of KD, Harden, and Kyrie and I think they come out motivated to prove that they are a legit contender together and can beat the better teams in the league. Im going to roll with the Nets in this one. I am not making this an official pick, but I expect a hard fought game and a little defense to actually be played, so 242.5 might be a little too high here. Look for a possible under.


Pick: Brooklyn ML


Boston Celtics (-2.5, O/U 226) @ Golden State Warriors


Following the LA v Brooklyn matchup on TNT is what should be a good Boston v GS game. Boston comes in on a 2 game skid, losing their last one in a close game with the Lakers. Golden State is coming off of a blowout win over Detroit. I believe this is a game Boston needs badly to get back on track and avoid having a nice little losing streak start up. It will be a tough task to control Steph with Marcus Smart being out, but I believe Brown and Tatum show up big tonight. The Warriors will be without James Wiseman who has been a big part of their success so far this season. Boston shot terribly from the 3 point line against the Lakers, but I believe they improve on that tonight. I'm betting on the Celtics getting back on track here.


Pick: Celtics ML


Let's keep it rolling tonight. Hopefully we can pull out at least 3 out of 4.


Overall Record: 5-1-0
