BallinChad’s Best Sports Bet May 18th 2013
All of a sudden out from nowhere Parker has his best start of the year and the usual script continues for Shields pitching great yet losing. Nice he has an ERA under 3 but a losing 2-4 record. One of the more frustrating losing wagers recently. This drops the record down to an even .500 at 20-20 -1.05 Units.
Today we had back to the hardcourt where most of my success has been recently.Might as well go with a wager that has been kind to us thus far. NBA: Indiana Pacers -5 -102 vs. New York Knicks
Everything I stated in the write up before the series has come to fruition and every single reason as to why I bet on Indiana in both games 3 & 4 can be applied to game 6. They are simply perfect in home throughout the playoffs now having gone 5-0 straight up and ATS. Even dating back to the regular season they are now a combined 35-11 compared to the Knicks who are 25-21. The Pacers played atrocious in game 5 on the road which was the Knicks best effort in a desperate attempt to extend the season. They don’t want to head back to MSG for a game 7 so you better believe they will be the most focused we have seen them all year.
From a matchup and tactical stand point click on this link which explains why I wagered them on for games 3 and 4; its the exact same reason for this game.
