Vancouver Canucks +105 @ Boston Bruins -125
The Bruins are coming home after having their hearts ripped out in consecutive games in Vancouver. The Bruins have played much better than I thought they would and definitely deserved better in Game 2. Alex Burrows getting 2 goals and an assist in a game for which he should have been suspended for biting has got to be a bitter pill to swallow.
The Bruins essentially played the Canucks even in both games and are a good bounce or two away from maybe being up 2-0 heading home. The Boston Bruins have too much pride to bow out in 4 games and they will use their crowd made up of 18,000 guys from “Southie” to push them over the top.
It’s also time to give Seguin some bigger minutes. Skate him with Bergeron’s line every once in a while. He could give the Bruins an added dynamic and it could also keep the aging Mark Recchi more fresh if he takes a few shifts off during the game.
This is a must win game for the Bruins and they have the sand and the skill to get it done at home. The Sedin Sisters will fold like always in the face of a hostile environment. Bruins and the under tonight.
Chicago White Sox +130 @Boston Red Sox -145
No way the White Sox keep this up, right? They have won 6 in a row and two against the Red Sox in Fenway Park. I always bet against streaks…except my own and I am on fire right now after going 4-0-1 last night in the Miami Heat vs Dallas Mavericks game. White Sox are losing this game. Sorry Chicago. Sox vs Sox series ends with a 2-1 Sox victory though. Maybe they are getting on track.
New York Yankees +105 @ Oakland A’s -115
Not the most attractive line, but if there is a road dog on the board to take today its the Yankees. Burnett is due for a good start and the Yankees lineup is still one of the best in baseball. Too much for the pesky little A’s even though Gio Gonzalez has pretty nasty stuff.
Still picking winners on a daily basis. I am on fire right now. Burning up Costa Rica. Sportsbooks all over the world are in trouble.
