We’re starting to struggle a bit. Our once beautiful record is now very very average, and the drought seems like it will never end. But shooters shoot, so we push on with more picks.

Alex Jansen (7-7-1, 50%, -0.65u): OKC Thunder +3 vs Houston Rockets

Last game was a CP3 breakout game which got him back on track. OKC is a tough team with him playing like the superstar he is, and have figured out how to slow Harden down thanks to Lugentz Dort. This will be another close one, with overtime a potential factor once again, but ultimately the Thunder should be able to do what it takes to even up the series, or at least come very close.

Risk 1.1 to Win 1

Ben Jansen (28-14, 66.66%, +28u): Dallas Stars +135 vs Colorado Avalanche

The Stars put up 5 goals in game one to win soundly over the favored Avalanche, who lose their starting goaltender Philipp Grubauer to injury. This one should be another fast paced, high scoring affair like the previous meeting, and with a high caliber goalie missing from the net, the Stars should be able to take another one for a commanding 2-0 lead.

Risk 1 to Win 1.35

Dylan Kelly (9-13, 40.91%, -3.65u): OKC Thunder +3 vs Houston Rockets

See Alex’s explanation.

Risk 1.1 to Win 1

Bonus Pick: Giannis Total Blocks + Steals o1.5 (-190)

To me, this one is a steal of a bet. Giannis is one of the best defensive players in the league, and will clear the 1.5 easily in what should be a dominating win today.

Risk 1.9 to Win 1

Ryan Kelly (9-7, 56.25%, +1.85u): Cincinnati Reds -1.5 @ Milwaukee Brewers

This is a huge week for the Reds to prove to their front office that they are capable of making a playoff run this year. They’ve underachieved so far this season but the talent in their lineup and pitching staff is undeniable. With Trevor Bauer (0.68 ERA) on the hill against a struggling Brewers team, I expect the Reds to be clicking on all cylinders tonight.
