Lock, Fade And Stay Away (8/5/20)

If you want the rest of my locks, and also want Fiesta’s locks for today, follow us on twitter (@TheChasers617)



Denver Nuggets -155

The Denver Nuggets are coming off a big over time win against the Oklahoma City Thunder, and will look to continue that momentum coming into today’s matchup against the Spurs. Denver might still have starting point guard Jamal Murray out, but even if he doesn’t play I am putting down the Nuggets as one of my locks. In the last five matchups between the two Denver is 4-1 straight up.

Gives a little advantage to Denver in my opinion tonight. I also don’t think the Spurs will have an answer for Jokic or Porter Jr. Look for the Nuggets to keep that momentum on the rise tonight, and lock them in on the money line (-155) against San Antonio.


New York Yankees (Game One) -125

The New York Yankees are one of the hottest teams in baseball at the moment. They have one loss on the season, and their lineup has been fantastic from top to bottom. Aaron Judge is having an MVP type vibe to him so far this season, which is making the Yankees that much more dangerous offensively. While Philadelphia is 1-4 in their last five games and is struggling big time. Look for the Yankees to make quick work of Philly in game one of their double header and lock them on the money line at (-125).


Nashville Predators -135

I know I took the Predators yesterday as one of my locks (go follow @thechasers617 on twitter), but I am fading them today against the Coyotes. The Predators on paper look to be the better team, but there has been time where Arizona has outplayed them so far in this series. Yesterday for example; Nashville came out flying yesterday, but once they got the lead they were lackadaisical to say the least. I think today’s game three will show how hungry the Coyotes are. Fade Nashville as I think they struggle to get out of that lackadaisical phase they were in for the final period of game two.


Stay Away: 

Under 223 (Toronto Raptors vs Orlando Magic)

This matchup we saw last season in a five game first round series between these two teams. In Toronto and Orlando’s last ten matchups the under has hit seven out of ten times. Also on Toronto’s end the under has hit eight times out of their last twelve games. So the signs are showing that you should take the under in this one right?

Well you would be wrong in this situation. In the Magic’s last ten games the over has hit ten times. Ten for ten on the over in their last ten is absurd. Do the Magic really have a chance of going eleven for eleven on the over in their last eleven games? Indeed they do and that is why I am staying away from the under in this game.
