DENVER @ PORTLAND GAME 3
Blazers -5 over Nuggets -110
Before losing game 3 at home against Denver, Portland had won four in a row at home which included a 16 point blowout in their season finale against the Nuggets.
PHILADELPHIA @ WASHINGTON GAME 3
Wiz Bradley Beal over 31.5 points -116
With Russell Westbrook injured, Beal will have to be responsible for even more of the Wizards point production against the Sixers. Beal is averaging 33 points in the series and had a season high 60 versus the Sixers in the regular season.
UTAH @ MEMPHIS GAME 3
Jazz/Grizzlies over 224
Donovan Mitchell is back for Utah and Mike Conley shredded the Memphis defense in game 2 for 20 points and 15 assists. The Jazz have had no answers in stopping 2nd year star Ja Morant. Both teams lit it up last game and combined for 270 points. It would be nice to get something close to that in game 3.
TORONTO @ MONTREAL GAME 6
Auston Matthews scores at least 1 goal and the Leafs win +110
Matthews led the NHL in goals scored and has scored 8 goals versus Montreal this season. Toronto gave away game 5 but I fully expect them to be laser focused in game 6.
#5 & #6
NEW YORK ISLANDERS @ BOSTON GAME 1
Bruins David Pastrnak & Brad Marchand to score a goal
Pastrnak has scored twice during the regular season against the Islanders and had 2 goals in the Bruins opening series against the Caps.
Marchand was 6th in goals scored during the regular season and currently leads Boston in the playoffs in points scored and goals scored.
