Tuesday Betting Recaps
I left Las Vegas on Tuesday for vacation in Hawaii, and underdogs stayed just as hot as the weather in both places in the NBA and NHL playoffs with outright upsets by the Celtics and Golden Knights, respectively, plus dogs going 9-6 in MLB.Let’s get to the specific details with our nightly betting recaps, and then update the spread and total records in each sport.
NBA: Celtics beat Heat 116-99 to avoid elimination and pulled within 3-1 in Eastern Conference Finals. The ViewFromHawaii is they were 1.5-point home underdogs (stayed just Under betting total of 216.5 points). Road/dog/Under went 1-0 on the night. The “zig-zag” (aka “loser of the last”) went 1-0 ATS with Celtics losing the previous game.
More NBA: Dogs improved to 5-2 SU this round and a perfect 7-0 ATS, though faves still lead 49-25 SU and 40-33-1 ATS (54.8%) overall in the playoffs with 1 game closing pick-’em. Road teams took a 4-3 SU lead in this round and improved to 6-1 ATS. Home teams still lead 47-28 SU and 41-33-1 ATS (55.4%). Overs dipped to 5-2 this round and still lead 39-34-2 (53.4%) overall.
