    @ Dallas
    122
    Analysis:

    The fact Luka fouled out and has been banged around by the media over the last days leads me to think he will get over this number. I think he will get calls and get to the Ft line. I worry if he’s truly healthy and if the Mavs are not in a close game (either way) late….but over.

    Analysis:

    Holiday went under…but it was because he had a strange game missing several shots around the rim. Let’s play against it happening again. Over.

    If Portzingis plays Luka will shoot. Let’s take it

    Analysis:

    Prichard is too good to continue here. Plus, we know he will take at least 2….I say he makes one tonight.

    99
    Analysis:

    If Portzingis is limited or out….this number will rise. Tatum was in assist mode in Game 2 and still had 9 boards. He was over this number in game 1….let’s grab it now

    99
    Analysis:

    He has the ability to fill the stat sheet. Rather than guess what kind of night this will be let’s just agree he will be a monster. He shot poorly and was right up against this….no Portzingis means even more Tatum

    Analysis:

    This might be 19.5 by tip….Holiday is playing well and is ridiculously efficient. He simply makes almost every shot he takes. Grab it now….props to Alex S. getting this at 16.5 (yikes!).

    Analysis:

    Now that it’s 3.5 let’s take these points. The Celtics are still elite at defending their permit er and they still have lots of options on offense. Portzingis is worth 2 points on the line not more. Let’s take the better team with points

    Analysis:

    Mets have an underrated lefty (Marlins lineup the worst v lefties) Marlins pen is fried…. Marlins starter is bad

    Analysis:

    Paxton is better at home than the road, Dunning is a regression candidate and the number say it’s cheaper to play the first 5 AND get the tie than play the full game.

    Analysis:

    Skenes should give up 1-2….and Mikalos should give up 2-3. That puts value on a 4th run….we should also get the heart of the order up 3x

    I like the Pirates here….Skenes is just everything you could hope for and the Cards are a team I’ve faded all year. Simple ML play.

    Analysis:

    Z. Elfin has been the Rays best lately….Rays 4-0 in his last 4 starts with a sub 3 ERA. Meanwhile the Cubs are in free fall and JTaillon has an era of 6 in his last 4.

    Analysis:

    Hartford played 30+ minutes and KP played 20 min. That will flip in game 2. Yet, the Horford number is not anticipating a drop in minutes…so let’s jump this now

    Analysis:

    If Tatum has any alpha male “Big (blank) energy” he will respond. Jason Kidd said unapologetically that “Jaylen is the Celtics best player”. Hey Tatum, what are you gonna do about it? Knowing this team Tatum will fill the stat sheet. I don’t think we will get a blowout…so I’m going over
