Last night wasn’t the most thrilling night of playoff action in terms of closeness; but they were still two fascinating games to watch.
The Cleveland Cavaliers dominated the Atlanta Hawks 118-88. At no point during the game did the Cavs take their foot off the pedal, and that was really interesting to see. That was a team that really wanted to make an impact, and strike fear in their potential opponents.
It was also quite a difference from the Warriors performance in their Game 4. Given the opportunity to sweep, they couldn’t recover from a massive first quarter on Monday. The two teams play tonight and it leads to, as we expect, a Cavs vs Warriors final.
In the NHL it’s a lot more tight, although last nights game wasn’t. The Rangers blew the Lightnig away to force a game 7 in that series, and it’s going to be an interesting one. It’s hard not to bet against the Rangers in that one.
Tonight we’ve got NBA action, NHL action and of course with it being Wednesday, the golf betting tips. We had a great win last week with Jimenez – here that is:
Now let’s get to the betting tips for this week:
Golf Betting Tips:
We’ve got three tournaments this week we’re tipping. Let’s get to it:
PGA Betting Tips: This week on the PGA tour it’s the Byron Nelson 2015, sponsored by AT&T. Jordan Spieth is the favourite at 9/2, and Dustin Johnson is 12/1. We’re only providing the one betting tip for this one, which is Gary Woodland. He’s 35/1 which is a decent price. We were hoping for better though. Something you may want to do is wait till Round 2. He starts slow, and if he ends up around par or +1 on the first round – depending on the leaders score – it may be best to bet him then.
European Tour Betting Tips: First of all – yep, blindly betting Jimenez again. This week it’s the Irish Open. We’re going to take Tommy Fleetwoord, George Coetzee and Chris Wood. We’d go with 1/2 a unit on Fleetwood, who has had some great results this year already. We’re also taking Coetzee even though he may be a bit out of his depth because he can deal with the winds well, and we’re expecting some windy weather. Finally Wood who we weren’t thinking about due to his injuries – until he came out of nowhere last week and he might be able to do it again.
LPGA Betting Tips: With no Lydia Ko this week, Stacy Lewis is the favourite in the Shoprite LPGA Classic and we will be betting her to win it. She’s already a multiple time winner and she is 6/1. It’s a solid price and we think she has what it takes. We also recommend smaller bets on Azahara Munoz and Alison Lee. Munoz has some fine form on this course in the past, and if she can get going early on she can take a top 5 spot. Lee is an interesting one – we’ve watched her a lot this year and she’s got the potential to win a tournament or start contending around the top 5. We recommend a small bet on her here.
NHL Playoff Betting Tips:
We think the Blackhawks will win – but look at the games the two teams have played, and the stats. This is what is known as a coin flip, and in that type of setting you just gotta bet the underdog. 2.30 odds on the Ducks is a great price and even if Hawks win – which they probably will – the value is too good to ignore.
NBA Playoff Betting Tips:
After a shaky Game 4, the Warriors are going to come out strong tonight and show everyone what they are made of. Especially after the Cavs thumping last night. The point spread is a lot but we can’t see it being a tight game. If Warriors win, it’s in double digits.
