Cokon’s Corner, Thursday 5/23/19
Short slate today, with a handful of baseball games and the critical Game Five of the NBA Eastern Conference Final series between the Raptors and Bucks. I’ll offer an opinion on that game as today’s free play, although please note that’s all it is. I’ve got just one baseball play today and that will be my only personal service selection. By the way, 1-1 last night with the Marlins winning again while the play on the Pirates failed.
RAPTORS at BUCKS
TAKE: UNDER 216
The thought process here is actually pretty simple. The Bucks are back to even in this series after seemingly being in command up 2-0. I thought they played some pretty poor defense at Toronto, particularly in the most recent game. Therefore I would expect much more focus on that end of the court tonight and to me, m that indicates a lower scoring contest. The downside is this line has already moved substantially from the opener, so there’s really no value to be had. Nevertheless, Under is the way I’d look to play.
