5 PROPS FOR YOUR ENJOYMENT ON MONDAY NIGHT
WINNIPEG JETS KYLE CONNER OVER .5 GOAL SCORED VS MONTREAL +182
Conner leads the Jets in scoring and goals in the playoffs and had a goal in Game 1 of the series versus the Habs. Now, he hasn't recorded a point since and he will have to be the guy that gets Winnipeg going if they want to get back in the series.
PADRES OVER CUBS -124
I'm going to ride with Ryan Weathers and his 1.93 ERA at home against the Cubs. In 12 outings this season Weathers has given up more than 2 runs just once and the padres lead the majors in ERA.
NETS TO WIN BY 1-10 POINTS +200
James Harden has been ruled out for game 2 so that will more than likely keep this game somewhat closer than if he were playing. The Bucks have been competitive each and every night for months as they have not lost by more than 8 points in 21 of their last 22 games. When the dust clears just like in game 1, the Nets overall are to strong and have better offensive weapons and probably win by 5-8.
SUNS CHRIS PAUL UNDER 14.5 POINTS SCORED VS NUGGETS -150
Paul is still suffering from a shoulder issue and is averaging under 10 points in the playoffs. He in fact failed to reach double digits in 5 of the 6 games in the opening round against the Lakers.
BIGTIME BONUS UNDERDOG BANGER
SUNS DEVIN BOOKER TO RECORD A DOUBLE DOUBLE AND PHOENIX WINS +900
Now this might sound like a shot in the dark but Booker has 77 points and 18 rebounds in his last 2 games combined and in the series clinching win against LeBron and Los Angeles, Booker actually did it with 47 points and 11 boards. Why not take a flyer with a guy who is having the time of his life after 6 crappy seasons in then valley of the sun.
