Pick
Over 203 (-109) @ Betamerica

The set-up: I had a play on the "over" in Game 6 and obviously I feel "lucky" that it got to OT. Game 6 likely should have gone "under" the number, but I definitely expect Game 7 to be a wide open affair. These two teams are very evenly matched, a sentiment which is clearly shared by the oddsmakers with a spread like this. Honestly, it would not be difficult to write a convincing argument for either of these teams to win, but for this one I target the total.

The pick: This is by far the lowest total posted so far in this series, but I expect it to blast past the number sooner, rather than later. As note, Boston has seen the total go "over" the number in eight of its last 13 after allowing 120 points or more in an OT loss vs. an opponent. Toronto has to be feeling confident now and I expect that to translate into production on the court. In my opinion, this one eclipses the posted total as the game comes down the stretch.

This is a 10* TOTAL BEST OF THE BEST on the OVER Celtics/Raptors.

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
