Lock, Fade And Stay Away (8/7/20)

If you want the rest of my locks, and all of fiesta’s locks … don’t forget to follow us on twitter (@thechasers617)



Over 220.5 (Boston vs Toronto)

The Toronto Raptors are undefeated since entering the bubble, and tonight they face another tough task in the Boston Celtics. Since entering the bubble the Raptors have played three games, and they hit the under in all three of them. Toronto hasn’t lost a game going back to the beginning of March, and the Celtics look to continue their momentum after a blowout win over the Nets. I see this total going over the 220.5 mark tonight for two reasons.

First reason is that watching the Celtics in the bubble, they have struggle to stop big guys like Giannis and Bam Adebayo. I think Siakam has a crazy game tonight, and helps this become a lock. The second reason is the Celtics scored 149 points in their last game, and the lowest they’ve scored in their four games in the bubble is 106. I think the Celtics will score into triple digits tonight and so won’t the Raptors so lock in the over in this one.


Under 5.5 (Vancouver vs Minnesota)

Vancouver and Minnesota have played three games so far, and the under has hit in two out of the three games. Both sides have been playing very well defensively and I can see game four going to either side. I think the big thing that I am taking away from this is that I feel that the final will end in a 2-1 or 3-0 type of score which is a couple goals under the under. Which goalie is going to be the one that makes the most saves and allows the least amount of goals?

I think it’ll favor in Minnesota’s way tonight guaranteeing a game five matchup on Sunday. NHL needs games to put on for Sunday and I think this will be one of them. Lock in the under 5.5 goal total for both teams in this matchup.



Nashville Predators -130

Unlike the Minnesota Wild and Vancouver Canucks series, I think this series between the Predators and the Coyotes are done and over with. Arizona has all the momentum in this matchup, they won 4-1 in game three and looked like the better team out on the ice. Pekka Rinne is struggling and that is not a sign that I want to see if I even want to consider taking the Predators.

I have called all three games in the series so far, as I told you to fade Nashville in games one and three, and took them as one of my locks in game two. Today I am telling you to fade the Predators yet again for the third time in this series.


Stay Away: 

Oakland Athletics -1.5 (+155)

Oakland was one of my locks yesterday, as they went on to beat the Rangers 6-4. Today they take on the Astros, who’s pitching rotation has struggled as of late. So the A’s are favored and the potential to take them on the run line looks real good in your favor right? Wrong and here is why. The Athletics have played the Astros very well as of late (6-2) straight up in their last eight games, but they have won by a run four out of their six wins. Stay away from the Athletics run line (-1.5) as the Astros will either lose by a run, or win this game.
