I've got two picks I'm gonna lock in now for tomorrow, cuz i'll probably be bakin in the cali sun as my dodgers can hopefully get back on stick it to the giants.
I'm gonna take DEN ATS +4...the nuggets have been the 2nd mentally toughest team in the playoffs just behind the cavs. Its been apparent that the Nugs have had their way with the mavs this series on both end of the court. THe mavs sure haven't shown that they have anyone to match up against nene and are getting out hustled every turn of the way. Josh howard isn't gonna play which further leads me to think that its gonna be harder for the mavs to win this one. I also read somewhere that the Nuggets have had 76FT attempts to the mavs 43 which to me means the nuggets are the one's pressin the offensive will on the mavs, takin it to the hole and forcin the issue. The line might look fishy but like with last night's LAL -1 line I'm gonna bite on this trap if it is one. But I'll take the Nuggets here and will probably also put a ML bet in as well.
Also gonna take CLEV ATS -8...The hawks are gonna be without Joe Johnson as he has been downgraded to doubtful for saturday's game. Horford and Marvin Williams have been upgraded to probable but Horfords practice was ONLY a walk through. To me, at the level the Cavs have been playin at I would think it would be pretty hard for marvin and Al to come in and try to pick up the slack. Further more I really don't think they have a chance without JoJo in the lineup. The cavs have too much fun whoopin teams and I don't see why this is gonna be any different...I also think the hawks are playin like a team that are just happy to have gotten out of the first round and already thrown in the towel.
