Milwaukee Bucks money line vs. Charlotte Hornets: Looking at Game 7 history, home team predominately come out on top. I still don’t see how Charlotte is the better team here. The Bucks will have the home court and should come out on top. If we lose this bet (since we’re playing a money line), we’ll count it as two losses for the record, and only one if Bucks prevail. Play Bucks money line —200.

Toronto Raptors +5½ at Philadelphia 76ers: The Raptors are 7-3 against the spread vs. Philadelphia this season (including playoffs). This game should be close. This game has the makings of a Dominque Wilkins vs. Larry Bird showdown (Game 7 of round two in 1988) with Vince Carter vs. Allen Iverson. Look for Carter to step with the pressure on him because he’s going to North Carolina for college commencement. This game will be close and will not be decided until the final minute. So let’s play the points. Play Raptors +5½.

Saturday’s record:0-1.
Playoff individual game record:26-26-2.
Playoff series record:9-1 (four series have been nailed on correct game).
Regular season record:126-128-5.
