NBA Feature Previews

1. Cleveland @ Indiana (Sat 9:05am)
How are the Pacers are coin flip at home in Game 3!!! The Wolf is licking his lips with excitement after the having tipped us into the Pacers at the line in the opening two games of the series. They return home with a 1-1 split and had it not been for Oladipo getting into foul trouble and LeBron dropping 46, it would be 2-0. The Cavs are getting far too much respect and we will take advantage of the general public thinking that LeBron can do it on his own. The Pacers have proven that they are the better ‘team’ and The Wolf firmly believes that they will overcome the best player on the planet. Indiana have now gone 8-1 ATS in their last 9 against teams with a winning record and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 following a straight up loss. They are also 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 when hosting the Cavs and are playing at at far superior level to their counterparts. LeBron will again get his but it will not be enough to prevent his side from going down 2-1.
Best: Indiana WIN ($1.91)
Prop: LeBron James 30+ points ($1.70)

2. Toronto @ Washington (Sat 10:05am)
Toronto take a 2-0 lead with them on the road for the first time in franchise history and they will be confident that they can make this a shirt series. Bradley Beal is having a forgettable series on both ends of the floor and they cannot afford to fall behind early. The Raptors improved to 3-0 straight up and ATS in the last 3 meetings and are also 4-1 ATS in their last 5 when on 2 days rest. The Wolf says that the only way the Wizards can turn this into a series is if they make buckets – and a lot of them. The Raptors will continue to get contributions out of Miles, Wright, Poetl and Siakam off the bench and the only way to counter that is to go toe-to-toe with them. This has Overs written all over it. The Over is 11-4 in the Raptors last 15 trips to teams with winning records at home and 7-3 in their last 10 following a straight up win. The Wizards will definitely do their bit with the Over 21-8-1 in their last 30 following a ATS loss. Washington will improve on it’s home court and that will only help the two sides blow out the total. 
Best: Over 218 points ($1.91)
Prop: John Wall 12+ assists ($2.15)

3. Boston @ Milwaukee (Sat 11:35am)
Coach Prunty cannot ask for more out of Giannis and Middleton. The fact that they return home 0-2 with the duo putting up huge numbers leaves The Wolf perplexed as to how they can be such firm favourites. The Greek Freak is averaging 31 points, 11 boards and 7 assists for the series will Middleton posting 28/6/4 in the two games in Boston. Even more alarming for the Bucks is the fact that they lost by 14 despite shooting 60% from the floor! The Celtics simply do not turn the ball over and defend as a complete unit. They do all of the small things right and that makes them extremely hard to beat. They also exceed expectations when they have time to prepare. They are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 when on 2 days rest while the Bucks are 3-12-1 ATS in their last 16 at home to teams with a winning road record. Just likes the Cavs game – the Bucks leaders with fill it up but they will not be covering this big a line. 
Tip: Boston +6 ($1.92)
Prop: Multi – Antetokounmpo 30+ points/12+ rebounds/6+ assists ($6.66)
