4 out of 6 of Ish’s Picks and Plays hit yesterday, and it would have been a perfect night if Philly didn’t fall apart at the end of their game and Utah didn’t get blown out. I have a few plays tonight for a difficult card, tail or fade. Let’s make some money tonight.

Milwaukee Bucks vs Brooklyn Nets

Kyrie Irving is most likely done for the series, and James Harden was officially listed out for this game yesterday but will be playing now. There are too many questions for me health-wise in this game. I don’t think James Harden is ready to go, but my gut says to still go with the Nets at home. I’m going to go against my gut and hope for the best. Jrue Holiday and Khris Middleton have found their footing in this series after starting off slow. Giannis has realized his advantage in the paint, and it just feels like the momentum has shifted in this series. When Brooklyn first assembled this big 3 of KD, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden, I always stated how when it comes to playoff time, injuries would be the biggest problem for this team, especially due to the increased physicality in the postseason. I hate betting against the Nets, but I feel like Harden won’t be able to be himself tonight, and Kevin Durant will attempt to lead his team with at least 40 points but still come short. Let’s see if Milwaukee will disappoint in a big postseason game… Again.

PICK: Bucks ML, if Nets Live gets to +200 or higher early, hedge!!

New York Islanders vs Tampa Bay Lightning

Tampa Bay will win tonight, but it will be tough against this solid Islanders team who have surpassed expectations this season. I’m rooting for the Isles, but the Stanley Cup Champions from last year know what’s at stake before they head on the road for 2 games in one of the most difficult stadiums to play in, that being Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. Tampa’s offense has been one of the most dangerous all season, and they just couldn’t get any sort of flow during the game due to the Isles’ exceptional defense limiting first pass opportunities. Islanders deservingly won Game 1, but Tampa also had silly turnovers and some bad decisions, which should be fairly easy to clean up for tonight. Tampa knows what they have to do tonight and should get the job done in another low-scoring game. Kucherov and Stamkos will get the job done.

PICK: Tampa Bay ML, Lean to -1.5. ALSO, Under 5.

Baseball Picks:

Giants -1.5

Astros ML

Padres ML

People’s Parlay:

Over 220 Nets/Bucks, Giants -1.5, Astros ML, Lightning ML.
