On this light day of action I'm passing

Who let the dogs out? For those who Kadeem Edwards Youth Jersey thought NBA playoff games were supposed to be tightly-contested defensive games, think again. The Heat routed the Nets last night 111-89 and the Clippers just as easily handled the Suns, 122-97.

On this light day of action I'm passing on a free play but will have free plays Friday through Sunday. Off last night's 4-0 sweep in all sports (including my free play winner), I've got a HUGE Thursday in store in MLB. Since winning my LEGEND Play last Sat nite on the Dodgers, I've stretched my current MLB run to 6-1 (or 85.7% winners). Thursday, I've got two 15* plays, an Afternoon Delight plus a Rivalry Classic tonight on the Red Sox/Yankees. I'm also featuring one of my exclusive Las Vegas Insider Plays, which have opened the month of May, 3-0!

Five of the eight second round games have now been decided by 12 points or more (four by at least 22 points!) with six of the eight games going "over' the total. That continues an Cary Williams Youth Jersey over trend that's seen 15 of the last 18 playoff games soar over the total. Home teams are 5-3 to open the second round (3-5 ATS) and "zig-zaggers" are now a perfect 4-0 in the second round after closing the first round on an 0-8 ATS run.

Three of the four series are tied at 1-all after two games with only the Pistons owning a 2-0 lead (over the Cavs). Maybe the oddsmakers knew what they were doing, as Detroit opened as about a 20-to-1 favorite to win its series over Cleveland while Miami, Phoenix and San Antonio all opened as around 2-to-1 favorites over New Jersey, the LA Clippers and Dallas, respectively.

Wednesday recap

The Heat jumped out to a 25-4 lead over the Nets last night, on their way to a 41-19 first quarter lead. Miami made 10 of its first 13 shots while New Jersey missed nine of its first 11. Dwayne Wade scored 17 of his 31 points in that first quarter and Miami shot 52.7 percent as a team (after shooting just 39.1 percent in Game 1). Shaq added 21 for Miami, as it was easy for him to stay out of foul trouble in this one.
