Daily US Sports Tips | Friday

Comments

After comfortably jagging two tips yesterday, our US Sports traders are back it with Friday’s mail. 

NBA:

  • Golden State Warriors -2.0 (GS at Indiana) – $1.95

    • The Warriors have now played 3 games with 3 of their big 4 (Durant, Draymond and Klay) back from injury and after a couple of easy wins against tanking opponents looked impressive against OKC yesterday. Indiana are playing their first home game after a 4 game road trip and the line here looks to be taking into account too much of their win during that trip against a completely decimated Golden State team full of backups.
  • Under 219.5 points (Washington at Cleveland) – $1.91

    • Washington’s offense has stuttered since the return of John Wall but face a favourable matchup at the guard position against Cleveland and should not have trouble scoring points. Cleveland’s offense has likewise clicked recently helping them steady the ship winning 9 of their last 10 but their defense remains one of the worst in the league and a starting lineup featuring Kevin Love and Jose Calderon isn’t locking anyone down.

MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL:

  • Chicago Cubs to win (J Lester) – $1.80 

    • The Cubs have started the season slowly but a favourable matchup tomorrow against the Brewers who are averaging only .227 against left handed pitching. Lester averages close to 7 innings pitched after 6+ days rest so should be primed to shut the Brewers lineup down.
