Game 4 Eastern Conference Finals Point Spread Picks, and Odds: Toronto Raptors at Cleveland Cavaliers.

Written and authored by National Basketball Association Expert Analyst Greg Nelson. Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball Point Spread news and notes. NBA Playoff Premium 500-star Predictions are winning at a 73.4% rate and will continue through the NBA Finals in June of 2016.

The (66-34) and two seed Toronto Raptors of the Eastern Conference Atlantic Division will be in the city where the “ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME” is located for game five of the 2016 Eastern Conference Finals.

Toronto will play the (67-27) and top seed Cleveland Cavaliers of the Eastern Conference Central in 2016 NBA Playoff action. Tip-off is 8:30 PM EST on the ESPN Television Network.

The game is on Wednesday, May 25, 2016. The teams will play at Quicken Loans Arena, aka the “Q” in downtown Cleveland, Ohio.

The best Sports Handicapper believes the Cleveland Cavaliers could be in trouble in one of the strangest series in recent NBA Playoff history. The Toronto Raptors seem to have their “SWAG” back after winning two “NORTH OF THE BORDER”.

The Opening Betting line has Toronto as a ten and a half point Road Underdog Against The Spread. The Betting Odds Total is 199 for Wednesday’s contest.

 

The Toronto Raptors were blown out in the first two games of the Eastern Conference finals. Most television experts believed the series would only last five games at the most.

Raptors Head Coach Dwane Casey looks like a genius and motivational speaker. Casey was seen on television giving his team a pep talk after the game one blowout. It didn’t work for game two as Toronto was blown out again. Things changed when the Raptors got back to the Province of Ontario.

Fans at “JURASSIC PARK” also are convinced Toronto can win the best of seven series. Home Court means everything in the postseason and the Raptors took advantage of their loud and boisterous crowd. Toronto took a double-digit lead into the half and saw it slip away in the second and third quarters.

Everytime Cleveland would make a run the Raptors would respond. The guard combination of Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan combines for 67-points in the game four victory.

The real surprise is the emergence of reserve Center Bismack Biyombo. Starter Jonas Valanciunas will be ready for game five.

The Toronto Raptors are 40/1 to win the 2016 NBA Title.

 

The 2016 Cleveland Cavaliers will have the luxury of returning to the Northeast sections of the “BUCKEYE STATE” for game five of the series.

It’s not going to be a close-out game for the fans hoped it would. Instead, Head Coach Tyronn Lue is looking for his team to regain their confidence after it got shattered in Canada.

Cleveland seemed like an incredibly average team in their last two defeats. The team went on a run, taking the lead after shooting the basketball extremely well in the fourth quarter.

Channing Frye came off of the bench to make four consecutive three-point shots to ignite the offense. Frye took the place of Kevin Love, who landed awkwardly on the foot of an official, twisting his ankle and did not return.

Television commentators thought LeBron James should have been more assertive at crunch time instead of deferring to teammates. That is who LeBron is, he doesn’t have the Michael Jordan mindset on the basketball court, he’ got the talent but he’s not an assassin.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are 8/5 to win the 2016 NBA Championship.

Fans at Oracle Arena held their breath when the star landed on his elbow. There is no ligament or structural damage; just swelling.

Reserve Forward Marreese Speights came off of the bench and provided the second unit with a lift. The former University of Florida standout scored twelve points. Speights is familiar with most of Oklahoma City scheme.

His familiarity goes back to his day’s in Gainesville, Florida. The Tampa area native was coached by Thunder Head Coach Billy Donovan.

The key to a Golden State victory is to match Oklahoma City in the post.

The Golden State Warriors are -125 to win the 2016 NBA World Championship.

 

The 2016 Oklahoma City Thunder are right where they want to be after stealing game one of the series in Oakland. Oklahoma looked lethargic in their game two blowout loss.

The Oklahoma City bench was nonexistent, and they must bring their A-game the rest of the series.

Written and authored by National Basketball Association Expert Analyst Bobby Wallace. Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball Point Spread news and notes.NBA Playoff Premium 500-star Predictions are winning at a 74.9% rate and will continue through the NBA Finals in June of 2016.

The (66-25) and top seed Cleveland Cavaliers of the Eastern Conference Central Division will make the trip “NORTH OF THE BORDER” for the third game of the Eastern Conference Finals.

The 2016 Cleveland Cavaliers have a chance to take a commanding 2-0 lead in the best of seven series. Cleveland will host Toronto is game two on Thursday Night. May 19, 2016. Toronto must perform better in the second half, Thursday and Saturday.

All indications are the Cleveland Cavalier will represent the Eastern Conference in the NBA Finals for the second consecutive season. Superstar LeBron James is getting better with age and is turning into an all-around leader.

Point Guard Kyrie Irving looks like the “REAL DEAL” with dazzling off of the dribble drives to the basket. The Cavaliers management should get credit for obtaining Channing Frye in a trade. The veteran from the University of Arizona allows the team to space the floor with his lethal three-point shooting.

Game one was the perfect example of his presence on the basketball court. His threat beyond the three-point line allows penetration to the basket by their perimeter players.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are listed at 6/5 to win the 2016 NBA World Championship.

 

Toronto Head Coach Dwane Casey will not allow his team to put their heads down after their game one blowout defeat at the hands of the talented Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Raptors have experienced losses in the first game of their previous two series, both on their home floor. Toronto responded with game two and three victories against Indiana in the opening round and Miami in the Semi Finals. Toronto must find a balance at both ends of the court.

The All-Star backcourt of DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry can make open shots. Both must be more consistent in their shot selections. Forward DeMarre Carroll, known as a defensive specialist must do a better job defending “KING JAMES.” The former Atlanta Hawks player scored just two points in game one.

Reserve James Johnson came off of the bench and poured in ten points. The coaching staff has to insert Johnson into the game for his offensive versatility.

The Toronto Raptors are listed at 250/1 to win the 2016 NBA Title.

Free 2016 Baseball Predictions, and Odds: New York Yankees at Oakland A’s.

Written and authored by Major League Baseball Expert Analyst Charlie Red McDougall. Charliessports.com produces for MLB news and notes. MLB Picks are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the 2016 World Series. The (16-22) New York Yankees of the American League East Division will be in the “BAY AREA”.

The teams will play at the Coliseum, across the street from the site of the NBA Western Conference Finals in Oakland, California. Game time is at 10:05 PM EST. On Thursday, May 19, 2016.

The Best Sports Handicapper believes the New York Yankees will get things together. The “BRONX BOMBERS” are off to a rough start to the 2016 season. The Oakland A’s are playing a well as expected. Oakland let most of their stars get away, playing “MONEY BALL”.

The Opening Betting line has the Oakland A’s as a +115 Home Underdog Against The Spread. The Betting Odds Total is 8-runs for Thursday’s game.

 

The New York Yankees find themselves last in the competitive American League East division, seven and a half games out of first place.

New York is only 4-12 on the road this season and 4-8 vs. The American League West. The Yankees are trying to avoid a sweep a the hands of Arizona. The teams play game three of an interleague series on Wednesday. May, 18th.

New York will return home to the “BRONX” on Tuesday. May 24th, hosting Toronto for three games. The coaching staff is puzzled by the inconsistency that has plagued the team this season. Starting Pitcher Michael Pineda, usually dominant on the pitcher’s mound is also having trouble early in the season.

The batting lineup did an excellent job of Arizona “ACE” Zack Greinke forcing the Diamondback coaching staff to pull the left-hander late in the game. The Yankees must start playing better baseball, in particular on the road.

Bovada list the New York Yankees at +700 to win the American League East Pennant.

 

The 2016 Oakland A’s have won four of their last five. Oakland is five games out of the top spot and is 7-8 vs. The American League East so far this season. The A’s swept the Yankees in the “BIG APPLE” early last month.

Oakland is also trying to get the home sweep over Texas, game three of the series is on May, 18th. The A’s led Texas in game two 4-3 in the bottom of the ninth inning with two outs.

Fans were starting filing out of the Oakland Coliseum until A’s relief pitcher Ryan Madson served up a two-run shot to Ian Desmond. However, the A’s rallied to get the 8-5 victory.

The A’s “BRASS” knows how to get the best out of their talent and it showed Tuesday night. Sluggers Josh Donaldson and Yoenis C├ęspedes are now in larger media outlets and making far more than Oakland was willing to pay.

The A’s are still competing at a high level. A great minor league system and sharp baseball minds are the reasons why they turn out some of the best talents in the “BIG LEAGUE”.

The Oakland A’s are listed at +500 to win the American League West Title.

2016 NBA Playoffs Game 2 Western Conference Finals ATS Picks, and Odds: Oklahoma City Thunder at Golden State Warriors.

Written and authored by National Basketball Association Expert Analyst Bobby Wallace. Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball Point Spread news and notes. NBA Playoff Premium 500-star Predictions are winning at a 74.1% rate and will continue through the NBA Finals in June of 2016. The (64-30) and number three seed Oklahoma City Thunder of the Western Conference Northwest Division will be in the “BAY AREA” for the second game of the Western Conference Finals.

The game is on Wednesday, May 18, 2016. The teams will play at outdated Oracle Arena in Oakland, California. The best Sports Handicapper believes the Oklahoma City Thunder shocked basketball fans with an upset in game one of the best of seven series. Golden State is still the team to beat in the 2016 NBA Playoff landscape. The Opening Betting line has Oklahoma City as an eight and a half-point Road Underdog Against The Spread. The Betting Odds Total is 221′ for Wednesday’s game.

The 2016 Oklahoma City Thunder trailed the Golden State Warriors by thirteen points at halftime. Starting Point Guard Russell Westbrook took over in the third quarter.

The Southern California native led all player with twenty-seven points; 24-points were in the second half. Head Coach Billy Donovan is doing a fantastic job with the Thunder.

The former Florida Gators coach, who has back to back NCAA title under his belt is optimistic in upsetting the Warriors. Donovan is trusting backup players at crucial moments.

Reserves Randy Foye and Dion Waiters can answer the bell when they are called. Enes Kanter and Steven Adams have length, which gives the Warriors first line trouble. Kanter is a multi-dimensional player who can make finesse opponents in the post and also make three point shots.

Superstar Kevin Durant missed seven shots in a row in the fourth quarter; his performance must improve down the stretch. The key to a Thunder victory in game two is to play tight defense and defend the three point line.

The Oklahoma City Thunder are listed at +350 to win the 2016 World Championship.

 

 

The defending NBA Champion Golden State Warriors find themselves in unfamiliar territory down 0-1. Golden State had their struggles in the late stages of Tuesday’s 108-102 loss to Oklahoma City.

Head Coach Steve Kerr was not happy with his veteran team pulling the trigger to fast down the stretch.

Golden State had too many empty possessions late in the fourth quarter. The coaching staff will spend the off correcting mistakes to ensure a victory in game two.

The last thing Golden State wants is to travel to Oklahoma City down two games. The Warriors seem to have trouble with the length of the Thunder bigs, Kanter, Ibaka, and Adams.

Two-time Most Valuable Player Stephen Curry and sidekick Klay Thompson combined for fifty-one points. Center Andrew Bogut was scoreless in the contest. Kerr and his staff must find way’s to get Bogut the ball in the interior.

The key for Golden State to tie the series is to concentrate on the moment. Draymond Green must control his emotions, stop “FLEXING” his muscle towards the Thunder bench.

The Golden State Warriors are listed at +110 to win the 2016 NBA Title.
