The will get a bit serious here. Much more than in the previous series for both as the teams here split their regular season games each winning one home and one away and twice playing under the released totals line and twice over it. That means we learn nothing from a regular season besides that those teams will be going all the way at each others throats – at least from our perspective. The Thunder is the force to recon with and in my opinion the only two teams that can disrupt KD’s plans for a ring are the Spurs first and the Heat later in case they go past the Spurs. The Clips still have to wait a year or two to be considered a force to recon with in those levels. So, my take is a very simple and Money Management driven: we know the Thunder will win one of the games at the least at home and most probably also cover as the line is very short. We also know that the teams will play at least one Over since both are not a very defensive teams. So, for the first game I will pick almost a default Home to cover and the Over and if that does not happen we’ll know what to do game 2.
This is a 5 Units Play (second stage of the playoffs all the games will be 5 or 10 units)
