Humbling night last night. You never want to miss on all your picks, but thats just how it goes. You can't win em all as they say, or in this case win even just one. I'm here to take my medicine and learn from my mistakes. I was initially going to sit this one out tonight and refocus, but the best thing to do when you get bucked off the horse is to get right back up on it. I'm not going to be down and out today because that's what Vegas wants. They want me to take my ball and go home after what I've done to them this week. It's going to take a lot more than an 0-3 night to take me out. I'm coming to reclaim my losses tonight and then some.
Milwaukee Bucks (-10.5, O/U 226) @ Cleveland Cavaliers
The Bucks are heating up right now winning their last two games by at least 20 points. They've put up at least 125 points in their last 4 games as the offense is clicking on all cylinders. The Cavs are coming off a loss to a tough Clippers team and will be looking to get back on track. I think the story of this game is going to be points. The Bucks will get theirs, and as long as the Cavs can manage to score around 100 or above the over should hit here.
Pick: Over 226
New Orleans Pelicans (-102, O/U 228) @ Indiana Pacers
Two high scoring offenses as of late collide in Indiana tonight. I look for Indiana to come out firing tonight after the beatdown they took from Milwaukee and Doug McDermott called out the team for their lack of effort in that loss. The Pelicans are not good on the road, but they are hot as of late. Give me another over here.
Pick: Over 228
Detroit Red Wings (+310, O/U 5.5) @ Tampa Bay Lightning
Detroit's still an embarrassment. Nothing changes here.
Pick: Tampa Bay -1.5
Boston Bruins (-142, O/U 5.5) @ Philadelphia Flyers
Nothing changes here either. Give me the over and I believe we get another crack at OT. If the Flyers take a 2 goal lead at any point in this game take a look at Boston's live moneyline.
Picks: Over 5.5, OT +300
Nashville Predators (+108, O/U 5.5) @ Florida Panthers
Both Panthers and Predators games this year have been high scoring affairs and last night we saw 11 goals from these two. I'm simply gonna ride the wave here and go for another over.
Pick: Over 5.5
Nothing says getting back on the horse like a 6 pick night. Should be an interesting one and we'll be rooting for a lot of points scored all over the place.
