Lock, Fade And Stay Away (8/26/20)

If you want the rest of my lock(s), and all of Fiesta’s make sure you are following us on twitter (@thechasers617). Also if you haven’t listened to our podcast make sure you check that out on soundcloud (@thechasers).

 

Lock(s): 

Colorado Avalanche -140 

The Colorado Avalanche have not looked good in their first two games of their Western Conference Semi-Final matchup against the Dallas Stars. Colorado is in a fear to go down 3 games to none if they lose tonight. I think tonight we see the Stars offense who have been hot as of late take a step back tonight. I look for Colorado to take full control of this game, and to win this game comfortably tonight. Lock in the Avalanche for two reasons. The first reason is that I don’t think this team with all that talent will go down 3 games to none. The second reason is we will see Anton Khudobin come back down to earth tonight.

 

Over 223 (Portland Trailblazers vs Los Angeles Lakers)

LeBron and company clicked on all cylinders in game four, and will look to put an end to their series tonight in game five. The Lakers have been scoring at will as of late, and with no Damian Lillard in the lineup for the Blazers will show why they are double digit favorites tonight. I see the Lakers scoring a lot tonight, like in the 120s-130s type of night for that offense. Portland won’t be great tonight without Dame, but they will at least help get this over. Lock in the over tonight in this game five matchup.

 

Fade: 

Milwaukee Bucks -14.5 

Speaking of double digit favorites, the Milwaukee Bucks are heavy favorites tonight as they look to close out their first round matchup against the Magic. The Bucks have struggled at times with the Magic, but for the most part had control for the majority of the series. In Milwaukee’s three wins this series, they have covered a double digit spread. Today I think they win, but I don’t think they cover the 14.5 point spread. With that being said I am fading the spread for the Bucks game.

 

Stay Away: 

Atlanta Braves +1.5 (Game One)

The Atlanta Braves are hurting right now, and the Yankees are starting to get healthy with Aaron Judge on the way back into the lineup. The Yankees have Gerrit Cole on the mound who has been unstoppable this season. While the Braves have Ian Anderson on the bump for them who hasn’t started this season. One thing in this is that the Yankees are 5-1 straight up in Cole’s starts this week. Also in all five of their wins in Cole’s starts the Yankees have covered the run line. With that being said stay far far away from the Braves on the run line today.
