Recap of last night: Once again I went 1-1. The tripper and Luke Kenard carried Duke to an easy victory and absolute lock, but Torts found his offense and it was damaging to the Maple Leafs. Not too many games on prime-time tonight, so we are digging deep but finding the locks. Overall Record (4-2).
New York Rangers vs. New York Islanders
Spread: -1.5 Rangers
Moneyline: (-120 Rangers, +109 Islanders)
The “Battle of New York” tonight. Everyone should be as happy about this match-up as I am. The Isles are on a hot streak right now but my Blue shirts are coming in with some steam as well. Hank neeeeeeeeeeeds to show up tonight. I believe he will and that’s some bad new for the Isles. It should be a dog fight as it always is with an over/under of 2 for the amount of fights tonight.
Predictions: Lock the over at 5.5. The Rangers should win this game but as it always does with these two teams, it will be close. Grabner and Kreider are both netting at least one tonight and possibly something will sneak by Hank. Expect the Rangers ML to hit and Islanders +1.5 to as well.
Boston Celtics vs. Chicago Bulls
Spread: -1.5 Celtics
Moneyline: (-114 Celtics, -106 Bulls)
The Bulls are playing at home and in search of some sort of identity heading into All-Star Weekend. They will be without D-Wade and expect IT4 to punish them for it. The Celtics are currently sitting at second in the East and tonight they will come out and show why. 2.5 games out and they know it.
Predictions: Lock the Celtics ML. This Money line is one to take advantage of. Usually locks on the money line pay out a limited amount. This one does not fit that case. I expect the Celtics to cover but you can sure yourself up with the money line. Expect the over to hit also as Jimmy Butler will rise to the occasion and keep this close until the end.
