Eastern Conference Finals pick

Milwaukee Bucks in 6 vs. Philadelphia 76ers: As I’ve been saying all year long, the Bucks are the best team in the Eastern Conference. I’ve been waiting for this series since December. Milwaukee is a tough match-up. The Bucks don’t have a lot of height, but they can match-up tough at the No. 1-4 positions. Philadelphia is banged up right now, while Milwaukee is not. Allen Iverson is tired. The Toronto series took a lot out of him. The Raptors should have won that series. Right now, I would run out to a sports book to play Milwaukee to win the series. You can find the Bucks as high as +155. So let’s play Bucks to win the series.

Milwaukee Bucks +4½ This line is too high. Philadelphia is just not that good. The Sixers are hurt right now and had more of an emotional win than Milwaukee on Sunday. Milwaukee did have an easy win there in the regular season. Also, Philly has lost two Game 1’s this playoff run. Play Bucks +4½.

Monday’s record:1-0.
Playoff individual game record:29-26-2.
Playoff series record:10-2 (five series have been nailed on correct game).
Regular season record:126-128-5.
