Brothers, you know how I feel about exotic bets, and now we have two in a row??? I know, it’s craziness, but I can’t ignore it when it’s staring me right in the face. When it’s there we have to take it, and that is what we will do tonight with a nice little three-teamer.
Boston Bruins ML (-170): The Bruins are my pick to win the Eastern Conference, so I can’t see them dropping two in a row at home and three in a row overall. They need a better effort out of Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand, and David Pastrnak, and goaltender Tuukka Rask will need a big game. I think they get it tonight at home and level this series at two games a piece.
New Orleans Pelicans +5 (-110): Keep an eye on this because this line may move to 5.5 or higher as we get closer to game time. The Pelicans played better in Game 2, and now that they’re home in New Orleans I expect to get their best game of this series. This should be a tight affair. The Spurs, who were undermanned and outgunned, managed to steal a game from the Warriors; the Pelicans are considerably better than them. This is the game to back the Pelicans.
Vegas Golden Knights ML (-150): What can we say that we haven’t already said about this team? They’re off a tough loss, back home, in a game they know they need. The T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas should be absolutely rocking tonight. I expect a vintage Knights performance this evening. Back our boys in the desert.
