Lock, Fade And Stay Away (8/23/20)

If you want the rest of my lock(s) and all of Fiesta’s make sure you are following us on twitter (@thechasers617)

 

Lock(s): 

Over 220.5 (Toronto Raptors vs Brooklyn Nets)

The Toronto Raptors are looking to get the sweep of the Brooklyn Nets in today’s game four matchup. Toronto’s offense is too lethal, and there is no one on Brooklyn that is playing at this very moment that can guard Pascal Siakam. Siakam and Van Vleet who I strongly believe is the future in Toronto has been outstanding so far. One thing that isn’t good for gamblers, is that the over has hit only once in this series. Today though with their backs against the wall, I see Brooklyn going all out and hitting the hundred point mark for the first time since game one. Lock in the over in this matchup, as Toronto will score a lot and the Nets will look to keep up and stay alive.

 

Vancouver Canucks +1.5 

The Vancouver Canucks have been one of those surprising teams in the playoffs, but you love to take them on the puck line. Yes, they are playing a tough Vegas team and do they stand a chance? I strongly believe so, as I don’t think Vegas wanted to see the Canucks in their Western Conference Semi-Final matchup. The Canucks kept it either close the entire series with the Blues, and I see the trend continuing. Vegas is riding Robin Lehner because he is the hot hand as of right now, while Vancouver has Jacob Markstrom that was excellent in their first round series. I think either Vegas wins by a goal tonight or Vancouver steals game one. Lock in the Canucks on the puck line tonight, as Vegas also hasn’t won a game by more than a goal since game one of their first round matchup against Chicago.

 

Fade:

Boston Red Sox -130

The Boston Red Sox won the first two games of their four game series against the Orioles, and dropped the third game last night. Now the fourth and final game of the series is here, and I am fading the Red Sox and here is why. First reason is that the Red Sox are 0-4 in games that Zack Godley has started in for them. While the Orioles are 3-2 in games that Wade LeBlanc has started for them. The Red Sox and Orioles have also split their last ten meetings, as both sides as won five games a piece. I think Baltimore’s offense has the momentum after last night’s extra inning win. With that being said I am fading the Red Sox in this one.

 

Stay Away: 

Cincinnati Reds -1.5 

I think this game is going to be a very close game today between the Reds and the Cardinals. Even with Daniel Ponce De Leon pitching for the Cardinals, who have struggled to get him runs when he is on the mound for them. Cincinnati is pitching Tyler Mahle who has two no decisions so far in his 2020 campaign. The Reds offense has looked ok in his starts so far.

This game is going to go one of two ways, with both ending up in a one run win for the Reds. First way is that both offenses are going to be on fire and light up the scoreboard. The second way is that both offenses, are going to stink and it will be a snooze fest of a game. Either way stay far far away from the Reds on the runline.
