The Spotlight Sports Pick of the Day

Spotlight Sports Pick Of The Day: Chicago Bulls (-3) 

One of my favorite plays is game 3 of the NBA Playoffs when the better seed goes up 2-0.  Oddsmakers have no choice but to make that team a much lower favorite because they’re now the away team. Truth is though if a team is a better team than they’ll find a way to win even on the road. I went with the Bulls because I think they’re so well coached that I don’t see them getting caught on the road… 3 points is also a gift so take it and run. 

Record (2-1)

Spotlight Sports Pick Of The Day- Brooklyn Nets (+10.5)

I have nothing but respect for what the Atlanta Hawks have done this season.  Going undefeated for an entire month and coming from, seemingly, out of nowhere to finish first place in the East.  The Nets, on the hand, limped into the playoffs and have underachieved all season.  Thus, this pick may be a bit puzzling but I feel that once you get to the playoffs it’s an entirely different ballgame.  The Nets have been to the playoffs over the past three seasons with the same core of payers and have had some success.  Before game 1 on Sunday, the Hawks hadn’t even played a competitive game in over a month.  I’m not saying that the Nets are going to win but I do expect them to keep it close and if they do push the Hawks it’ll be interesting to see how the Hawks respond.  Regardless, more than 10 points is something I’m willing to jump on and pick Brooklyn and their veterans in this one.

Spotlight Sports Pick of the Day- Cleveland Cavaliers (-11)

The Cleveland Cavaliers came out of the gate on Sunday afternoon looking pretty sluggish to say the least.  It looked like they were running through mud as their shots weren’t falling and for the first quarter and a half of the game it looked like we were gettng set for a nice series between the Cavs and the Upstart Boston Celtics.  Then reality set in and it looked like the Cavs started to take there team a lot more seriously and stopped messing around.  The Reality here is that the Cavs are way too much for the Celtics.  They’re not just Lebron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love but rather they are stacked with so much depth and can beat you so many ways.  Even after their slow start on Sunday, the Cavs still won going away and will do so again tonight.  I don’t like big spreads (I picked the Nets and won on them simply going against that big spread) but I willing to roll with it tonight.
