    I like Washington Wizards to beat Boston in six games.

    I am not an NBA expert.
    I know more than the layman, but less than the hardcore fan, hardly an expert.

    This is why I think the Wizards will advance.

    1) The guard combination of Wall and Beal is superior than the guard combination of IT2 and Bradley.
    isaah doesn't play enough defense to stick with Wall, and if you exclude Harden from the SG conversation, the only better SG in the game better than Beal is DeRozan, and I think Beal is a better SG than Klay, Wade, and CJ. But that's just my opinion.


    2) Washington has a better front court too.
    Morris and Porter are better than any Crowder/Amir Johnson/Jonas/Green combination the C's trot out.

    3) Horford is so overrated, Gortat is in fact the better rebounder.

    If the C's have the bench edge, it's not by much, they do have Marcus Smart, and a few big men, I like the Wizards sharp shotter Bojan, and Wall virtually plays all game so they really don't need Jennings that much.

    5Dimes is offering +140, I'll take 7:5 odds eight days a week for this series.
    Don't care if Boston has the home court, I don't think this goes seven games anyway.

    You know more than 97.5% of people on SBR, that's clear from your post. I also like the side and the odds that you are getting. IMO this is a much better matchup for the Wiz than Atlanta.

    I don't often bet series, and I won't this time....but GL bud, I think you hit.

    Boston will hide IT on Porter. When Wall or Beal is out he'll guard Jennings or Bogdonovic. Horford is overrated, but Gortat struggled, I wouldn't go as far to say he is better than Horford.

    He cannot guard Bogdanovic better off on Beal.

    Wizards do not have a better frontcourt COMMON but backcourt is a mismatch.

    It's difficult to play the C's game by game. When you depend on mediocre 3 point shooters it's a crap shoot. Smart, Crowder, Thomas (artic cold), and Bradley you just never know. No consistency.

    I took the safer route and nabbed the points.
    Celtics will make a run or two, I don't see Wiz maintaining a 12+ point lead.

    Lets see if Wiz can come back. I think it's a tough matchup for them. I think C's win in 7.

    Wiz are too sloppy with the ball to win against the Celtics. That will work against the Hawks, but not against a team that can score and finish

    When Morris went out, so did any chance of a Wizard win.

    Game sailed over 216 without a sweat, so I break even minus 5 bucks for the juice.
    I can live with that.

    I'm going the contrarian route in the late game, Utah +3.5 and under 190.5

    We go there about 4 times a year for Mexican, My wife and I like the food.
    Maybe, sounds like a good idea. I'm off of Black Rock, less than 10 minute drive for me.

    PM me later this week.

    C's likely go up 2-0, game 2 line is 5.5. Wouldn't surprise me if it comes back to Boston 2-2 though.

    I thought the first two were going to be split, I still think game three in Washington will be series tied at 1 and 1.
    If Morris is 100 percent, good to go, I'll bang Washington in game two.

    Red Sox tonight at pick 'em is my play tonight.
