We delivered a solid winner with our best betting pick from Wednesday as the LA Angels and LA Dodgers easily played under the total of 6 ½ runs. This was a case where we had two starting pitchers in C.J. Wilson from the LA Angels and Nathan Eovaldi from the LA Dodgers in outstanding form and once again their form held up last night. Poor Nathan Eovaldi as he goes six innings and allows just one earned run and his offense produces a lone run like they have done for nearly all his starts. He simply gets no run support when he the takes the hill. C.J. Wilson makes it seven straight starts where he has allowed the opponent one run or less. This is simply outstanding track records from both pitchers. Our best betting pick from Thursday comes from game two of the NBA Finals as the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder continues. The Heat and Thunder will tip off from OKC at 9PM Eastern Time and ABC carries the live national television broadcast. With our NBA best betting pick we will play on the Miami Heat -5 ½ points against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The current odds from our best NBA pick were pulled from Top Bet sportsbook.
The pointspread opened up in game two with the home club Oklahoma City Thunder favored by -5 ½ points with an over under of 196 points. Money early from the bettors has not moved this pointspread as OKC remains the -5 ½ point favorite. The over under has moved up a notch to a current line of 196 ½ points. Those wagering on the Oklahoma City Thunder on the money line will lay -250 odds with the road underdog Miami Heat now bringing back +210 odds to earn the upset straight up in win game two of this series.
Expect Miami to make the necessary adjustments in game two as the club does not want to fall behind 2-0 in this series. Dwyane Wade will step up off following a disappointing 7 of 19 shooting in the Heat’s loss in game one. Lebron James played well in game one and expect James to be even a stronger force he to bounce back from a losing effort. Miami had success getting to the basket early in game one and expect the Heat to continue this for four quarters as they held as much as a 13 point lead in game one and in no way were blown off the court.
I don’t expect Nick Collison to equal his 8 point and 10 rebound performance in game one for the Oklahoma City Thunder. Miami will bring help on Kevin Durant and not allow for good looks at the basket. James Harden did not have a good game one with only five points. Miami defensively this season has held opponents to just a 91 point per game average. Oklahoma City will find a more intense defensive effort from Miami here and now that the Heat goes to the tape and adjusts to OKC’s offense they cover this line at the sportsbooks.
