NBA Finals Open Tonight

Defending NBA Champion Warriors 2-5 Favorites To Beat Gritty But Tired Raptors In Title Round  And Add Another Chapter To Their Dynasty

It’s Time To Begin Preparation For NFL Season And Here Are The Numbers That Are Real And Should Aid You With A Starting Foundation

By Kelso Sturgeon

 

Handicapping the NBA championship round between top-seeded Golden State (70-30), winner of the league’s Western Conference, and 2nd-seeded Toronto (69-29), winner of the Eastern Conference, involves many aspects of analysis, including such factors as talent, current form, injuries, fresher legs and history. The best-of-seven series begins Thursday night in Toronto and the host Raptors have moved from being a 1-point underdog to being a 1-point favorite. The total opened at 215 and remains there.

If you want to bet the money line Thursday night, you will have to lay $110 to win $100 if you like Toronto and $105 to win $100 if Golden State is your choice. In futures betting to win the championship, the Warriors are -300, with the Raptors +250.

History shows in the last 22 championship rounds, the home team is 19-3 straight up (SU) and the “under” has ruled in that time frame, 14-7-1. In the last four years, Golden State has played in the championship round and is 4-0 in the first game of each series.

The Warriors have a tremendous edge in experience, having won the last two NBA championships, and three of the last four. The Warriors have been to the championship round 11 times, including the last five. Toronto has been around for 24 years and is making its first ever trip. The Warriors have 10 players who have played in 140 title-round games while Toronto has four that have competed at this level.

As for injuries, Golden State will be without superstar forward Kevin Durant (calf injury), who averages 26.0 points, 6.4 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game. We know he will miss game one but do not have any information about game two. He has not played since May 23. The Warriors will also be missing star center DeMarcus Cousins who has been out since May 7 with a quad injury. He says he will return sometime during this round.

On the important matter of fresh legs, Golden State has been doing rest and rehab for the past 10 days, while Toronto played five days ago.

I closed out the conference championship round with a winning 50-unit play on Toronto (-2) with its 100-94 win over the Milwaukee Bucks. I intend to keep right on winning and will open the final round with a 50 unit bet

 

Run For 2018-19 NBA Title Begins With 50-Unit Bet

I Closed Out The NBA Conference Championship Round With 50-Unit Winner And Am Set To Open The Title Series Tonight With Same Bet

There are many elements involved in handicapping the NBA championship round between the two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors, and the hopeful Toronto Raptors. The challenge to win game one of this best of seven series is reflected in the back-and-forth movement of the line.

Golden State opened -1, with a total of 215, and after several moves that changed the number and which team was the favorite, host Toronto emerged -1.5, with a total of 213. With the sharps and the wiseguys yet to bet, that number could move one way or the other before tipoff tonight.

Regardless I have a very strong opinion of this game and am releasing it as a 50-unit play and you can win it with me for just $25, charged to your major credit card or to Pay Pal. As noted, I closed out the conference championship round with a winning 50-unit play on Toronto (-2) with its 100-94 win over the Milwaukee Bucks

The NBA championship is the usual best-of-seven, with the 2-2-1-1-1 format. The first two games are in Toronto.

If you want to bet the money line tonight, you will have to lay $115 to win $100 if you like Toronto and $100 to win $105 if Golden State is your choice. In futures betting to win the championship, the Warriors are -290, with the Raptors +250.

History shows in the last 22 championship rounds, the home team is 19-3 straight up (SU) and the “under” has ruled in that time frame, 14-7-1. In the last four years, Golden State has played in the championship round and is 4-0 in the first game of each series.

Highrollers Go For 7th Straight 100-Unit MLB Winner

The Power Vs. Weakness Formula Is In Play Again Tonight And It Is Set To Deliver My Seventh Straight 100-Unit Winner

My baseball highrollers won a 40-unit side/total parlay last night with the Philadelphia Phillies (-160 and over 10 runs) who buried the St. Louis Cardinals, 11-4. Today it is right back with another big money play as they go for their seventh straight 100-unit winner.

One of the 10 games on the Thursday schedule meets all the necessary requirements to qualify as another 100-unit power versus weakness triple power play and I am confident I will win my seventh straight 100-unit bet in the last 10 days. As noted, the team I am releasing meets all the requirements for this big game bet and gets an extra boost from a hidden kicker.

I will let my record do the rest of the talking.
