5/22 picks and leans
I'm gonna be ridin the Magic ATS +9 for the game.The Magic have covered the spread in the last 6 games against the Cavaliers (and the last 6 in Cleveland), not to mention 11 of the last 12. THE ONLY thing that scares me is the whole NBA is "fixed" thing where if thats the case D.Howard is gonna foul out AGAIN with bull shiet calls as the NBA would make TOO MUCH money with a cavs/lakers final (if that is the case EXPECT it to go to a game 7...just too much revenue in a game 7 between those two teams)...but anyways, i'm goin with ORL plus the points.
I am completely confused on the O/U on this game...game one everyone and their mom were suggesting the under but I had a gut feelin that the over was gonna hit, which it did by 29 points. Tonights game I see both teams making defensive adjustments that won't let this game goin O quiet so easily...as the cavs haven't allowed over 85 points all playoffs and orlando only alowin over a 100 points twice this whole playoffs, so i was leanin on the under pretty strongly last night while I was lookin at this game... BUT the thing that gets me about this O/U is that its pretty darn low (right now its at 188.5) and at that line it the under would have only hit 4 out of the last 10 between those two teams (two of those unders only by 1.5 points) and you can't shake the fact that the over hit so easily in their first game. Now i'm startin to lean on the over in this game.
