NBA Finals Game 6 Betting Tips:

The Celtics did it again. They absolutely crapped the bed in the fourth quarter. That’s twice in this series. The Warriors played great, no doubt, but the effort and execution just completely fell apart in the fourth quarter for Boston and I’m not sure what to make of it.

Tatum cost us a prop in the last one as he finished with 27 points and we took over 27.5. He was hot early and then scored just five in the fourth quarter. He shot two-of-six from the free throw line.

Each team has looked amazing in this series, but Boston has put up two straight stinkers. So, what happens tonight?

Honestly, I think the pressure is on Golden State here. The thing about Boston is that you can’t hold onto those performances for too long or take much stock in them. They’ve had multiple games in their series with Milwaukee and Miami where they looked like crap. The Milwaukee series saw them comeback and win the final two games to take the series.

They no-showed game six in Boston with a chance to clinch against Miami. Not taking anything away from any of these teams, but when their defense has been locked in and their offense hasn’t made stupid turnovers there has been nobody better in these playoffs. They have the better defense and a major size advantage in this series, they just have to execute.

Will they? I think they will. Game four was a back against the wall moment for the Warriors, but this is something much more than that. This is back against the wall at the bottom of a well with twenty guns pointed straight at their heads. If they don’t show up tonight they will never live it down.

Of course, Golden State knows that. One thing that has served them well is their experience and preparation in these Finals. They haven’t gotten rattled and they know they are in for it. The question becomes: is Golden State at their best better than Boston at their best? I don’t think so.

Besides all that, the NBA loves a game seven.

Celtics -4

I also have three more bets that I am making on tonight’s game:

Philadelphia Phillies at Washington Nationals Betting Tips:

PHI – Zack Wheeler 2.84 ERA/2.13 FIP
WSN – Patrick Corbin 6.65 ERA/4.56 FIP

People seem to expect this grand bounce back for Corbin that is never coming. He’s not good, he gives up tons of homeruns, and his strikeouts are declining. The return is not coming. Philly hits lefties well and I think they hit him very well today. The bullpen has really struggled over the past two weeks.

Wheeler has been excellent and the Nationals are merely average against righties. The thing with Philly over the past few seasons has been their bullpen, but it has really been getting it done this year and is in good form right now.

Phillies -1.5 (-130)

Tampa Bay Rays at New York Yankees Betting Tips:

TBR – Jalen Beeks 1.38 ERA/3.10 (Opener)
NYY – Luis Severino 2.80 ERA/3.45 FIP

Milwaukee Brewers at New York Mets Betting Tips:

MIL – Aaron Ashby 3.91 ERA/3.40 FIP
NYM – Tylor Megill 4.50 ERA/3.56 FIP

Do we trust Ashby after he allowed 13 hits and six runs against the Nationals? Right after allowing four runs to the Padres? No, we don’t. That’s two straight lowly offenses hitting him well and the Mets are not a lowly offense.

Do we trust Megill after he’s allowed 13 runs in his last three starts? No, we don’t.

Winds out to left at 10-15 MPH should help us out and get us an early over.

Brewers/Mets Over 4 Runs First 5 Innings (-120)

Texas Rangers at Detroit Tigers Betting Tips:

TEX – Martin Perez 2.18 ERA/2.72 FIP
DET – Beau Brieske 4.34 ERA/6.06 FIP

Los Angeles Angels at Seattle Mariners Betting Tips:

LAA – Shohei Ohtani 3.64 ERA/3.22 FIP
SEA – George Kirby 3.65 ERA/4.11 FIP

Been burned before here, but this is another one where the total is just too low. Ohtani is great, but he’s had his struggles of late. The bullpen behind him is not very trustworthy and the Mariners offense is good.

Kirby has struggled as well and the Angels offense is filled with troublemakers. Going to sound like a broken record here, but Mariners bullpen bad.

Mariners/Angels Over 7 Runs (-116)
