Ricky's 1* Free Play on the Golden State Warriors.

I had a play on the Warriors in their Game 3 win. If you didn’t get a chance to read that analysis, I believe it’s worth a quick look right now, as for the most part the logic behind that one directly pertains to this particular selection as well for me:

As a “key angle” I stated: History of success when dealing with adversity. Golden State dominated in its 121-104 home win in Game 1, but then collapsed in LA’s 135-131 historic come from behind win in Game 2. Can anyone say “letdown spot” for the Clippers here? The Warriors have won championships without DeMarcus Cousins and if they’re going to do it this season again, they’ll have to do it without the big man, as he tore his achilles in the Game 2 setback. Golden State though is filled with veteran talent and I expect it to step up and take advantage of this content Clippers side with a resounding victory.

Key Trends:

- Golden State is 12-7 ATS in its last 19 when playing with two days rest.

- The Warriors are 16-10 ATS in their last 26 after scoring 110 points or more in four straight games.

- The Clippers are a horrible 11-21 ATS in their last 32 as a home underdog, including only 3-9 ATS this year.

The verdict: I think the Clippers have hit the wall. Golden State is without Cousins, but its veteran core is about to close out this opening round series strong in my opinion. Consider the defending champs in Game 4!

Ricky's 10* play on the St. Louis Cardinals.

Key Angle: It's important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. 

- Pitching mismatch. Great line value. Two key angles working in our favor here. The Mets hand the ball to Jason Vargas (1-0, 14.21 ERA), while the Cardinals go with Adam Wainwright (1-1, 3.94). Clearly these two are now over the hill, but Wainwright has looked much better than his counterpart to this point. In my opinion, Wainwright could/should easily be a much larger fav in this spot.

Key Trends:

- New York is 87-99 (-14.3 units) the L2 years following a loss.

- St. Louis is already 5-2 at home this year.

- The Cardinals are 62-50 the L2 years after three or more straight road games.

The verdict: I like Wainwright to easily outlast his volatile counterpart. Lay the price with confidence!

He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. 

- Momentum. With their 6-4 win in Game 4, the Bruins have gotten back the home ice advantage over the final three. I think Boston builds off the victory (note that the home side has won 12 of the last 17 in this series).

Key Trends:

- Toronto is just 1-5 in its last six as an underdog.

- The Bruins are 16-5 in their last 21 when playing on one days rest.

The verdict: Boston won’t be taking anything for granted here after that Game 1 loss. Look for the Bruins to finally take a firm control of series with a second straight victory. Lay the price!

Ricky's 10* play on the Blazers (CLASH OF TITANS)

Key Trends:

- Portland is 11-5 ATS in its last 16 on the road.

- The Blazers are 3-1-1 ATS in their last five when playing on two days rest.

- OKC is just 1-4 ATS in its last five vs. teams with a winning road record.

The verdict: Russell Westbrook is a liability defensively. The Blazers Damian Lillard is averaging 30 points over the first two games and is outplaying everyone on the floor right now. OKC has allowed 109 points over its first two postseason games and I think it’ll have its hands full here again vs. this surging Blazers team. Grab the points!

Ricky's 8* play on the Orlando Magic.

Key Trends:

- Toronto has been terrible in this spot, going only 11-14 ATS as a road favorite. That includes going just 3-7 ATS as a road favorite of six points or less. 

- Additionally note that the Raptors are a poor 8-10 ATS this season off a home win by ten points or more.

- The Magic on the other hand are 8-3 ATS this year in revenging a road loss vs. an opponent of ten points or more.

The verdict: The Magic have been competitive in this series despite big man Nikola Vucevic pretty much being a “no show” to this point. I think that’s going to change with the shift in venue though. He’s too good a player to be held down. I think the outright is very possible, but in the end let’s grab up all these points!

UNDER 210 -109 Won
$100
Play Type: Premium

Ricky's 8* play on the under Raptors/Magic.

Key Trends:

- Toronto has seen the total go “under” in five of its last seven as a road favorite.

- Orlando has seen the total go under in 12 of its last 17 when playing with two days rest. 

- The Magic have seen the total dip under in all four games this year off a road blowout loss of 20 points or more.

The verdict: These are two tough, defensive minded clubs and I’m expecting the home side to try and slow this one down and control the tempo from the outset. Magic big man Nikola Vucevic has so far been quiet in this series, but expect the home side to try and him much more involved moving forward. That means plenty of “half court sets” while on offense. The numbers and the conditions point to the under as the correct call!

Ricky's 10* play on the Philadelphia Phillies.

Key Angle: It's important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. 

- History of success. For Phillies’ starter Aaron Nola (1-0, 7.45 ERA) vs. the Rockies. Philadelphia is injured and it’s lost the first two games of this series. Nola himself has gotten out to a shaky start to 2019. However I think both he and the Phillies bounce back here, as note that Nola is 1-0 with a 1.98 ERA and 17 K’s compared to only two walks in two outings vs. Colorado. Antonio Senzatela (1-0, 1.35) got off to a great start vs. the light-hitting Padres, but note that he has given up three runs over six innings and owns a 4.05 ERA vs. the Phillies.

Key Trends:

- The Phillies are 7-2 in their last nine road games after losing back-to-back contests.

- The Rockies are only 4-9 in their last 13 after back-to-back home victories and as an underdog in the +105 to +150 range.

The verdict: Look for Nola to get back on track with his best effort of the season. Lay the price!

He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. 

- Smell blood in the water. St. Louis was one of the best teams over the second half and with a chance to end this series here and now, I think it makes the most of it. Note that the Jets average 2.95 goals and conceded 3.02 on the road this season, while St. Louis averages 3.19 goals at home and it allows 3.02.

Key Trends:

- Winnipeg is just 2-7 in its last nine following a one goal loss in its previous game.

- St. Louis is 6-2 in its last eight home games following a win by one or more goals.

The verdict: I think the home side risks life and limb here to finish this series off. The Jets get grounded, lay the price!

He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. 

- Great in revenge role. I’ll admit that the Spurs have looked much better than I thought they would. When we look closer at the numbers though we find that San Antonio has a 32-9 home record, while Denver is only 20-21 on the road. The Spurs are better offensively, scoring 111.5 ppg to the Nuggets' 110.5 ppg, while Denver is better defensively, allowing 106.6 ppg to SA’s 109.9. Spurs have better percentages both in field goals (47.8% to 46.5%) and in 3-pointers (39.2% to 35%). However note that Denver is 4-1 ATS this year revenging a road loss vs. an opponent of ten points or more.

Key Trends:

- Additionally note that Denver is 19-10 ATS in its last 29 off a road loss of ten points or more.

- The Spurs are just 11-20 ATS this season after scoring 115 points or more.

The verdict: I think the desperate and talented visiting side has a legitimate shot at scoring the outright upset, but in a contest which I envision coming down to whichever team has its hands on the ball last, I’m grabbing the points!

Ricky's 10* play on the Detroit Pistons.

Key Angle: It's important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. 

- Nothing to lose. Well, they’ve already lost the first two games of this series and they’ve already lost their super star Blake Griffin, so at this point its pretty safe to say that the Pistons have little to lose today. I like the home side to come out fired up and to ride the wave of emotion to a much more competitive outcome than what this spread would suggest. And the numbers support that theory.

Key Trends:

- As note that Milwaukee is already 0-2 ATS this year off two consecutive wins vs. division rivals.

- The Bucks are also a mine-burning 3-5 ATS this season after playing four consecutive home games.

- Detroit is 5-1 ATS in its last six off two straight road losses by ten points or more (including 2-0 ATS this season.)

The verdict: Whether Griffin plays or not, look for the Pistons to go down fighting. Grab the points!

Signature Picks:

Shoot Out The Lights (totals play): As a fan, we all like to see a high scoring game. Whether it's basketball, football or hockey, offense is always more fun than defense. If you want to sit back and watch two teams pile up the points, this signature play is on a game that should go WAY OVER!

Beware of Dog (underdog play): If you like playing favorites, you best stay away from this game. When Ricky decides to back the underdog, it usually indicates that the favorite is grossly overvalued. This particular play features an underdog that should threaten to win outright!

Clash of the Titans: This signature play usually features a high profile game, often between two teams that are battling for the top spot in the league, division or conference.

Game of the Week/Month/Year: The top play for each particular sport, for the week, month or year.
