The Dragon

Galin Dragiev started in the sports industry by covering Daily Fantasy basketball and soccer for a number of outlets, including Rotoworld, DailyRoto, and numberFire. From the beginning, he realized one must first predict the outcome of the game before finding out how success trickles down to individual players, so he spent more time studying team outcomes than projecting individual players. When it comes to predictions, Galin trusts numbers above all else. Having graduated from the University of Florida with degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Physics, Galin puts his strong analytical background to the test every time he makes a pick. Galin?s expertise is in the NBA and the Premier League. He supports Chelsea FC, the Orlando Magic, and the Florida Gators but never lets bias come into play in his decision-making.

Isaiah Thomas has been ruled out for the remainder of the post-season and Boston has no chance of keeping this game close. It?s very rare to have a 14.5 point spread in a Conference Finals game but that?s how big the gap is between these two teams. This one will be over by halftime. Lay the points.

Without Kawhi Leonard, there will be no resistance for the Golden State Warriors? attack. Look for Steph Curry and Kevin Durant to exploit every Spurs weakness and carry the team to a huge victory on the road. Lay the large number.

Cleveland hasn?t lost a single game in the playoffs and is rested ahead of Game 1 in Boston. The Cavs have a huge advantage in rebounding and should be able to get easy second chance and transition points. The line is too small here, so I?m laying the points.

Golden State didn?t cover in Game 1 but with Kawhi Leonard out, the Spurs struggled to close off that game. Kawhi is slated to miss Game 2 and it?s unlikely the Spurs have any answers to Golden State?s offense in this one. I?m laying the points once again.

The Warriors have too many scoring options and Kawhi Leonard can?t guard everyone at once. They?re also rested after finishing the last series in four games and play Game 1 at home. San Antonio, on the other hand, is missing Tony Parker and have no real answer for the Warriors guards defensively. There?s just too many things going in the Warriors favor, lay the points.
