The end of the game in the Pacers and Heat has drawn all a stir of poor coaching by Indiana Head Coach, Frank Vogel. Let that be the case for Friday’s plus 7.5, as the bookmakers still have money pouring in on the Heat. During the season Indiana defeated the Heat 2-1, and had another victory in their hands Wednesday.

There were several catalysts in that game that would make you jump on the Pacers today. The Heat never could get a proper home lead they’re accustomed to, in fact their largest lead was only five. Chris Bosh struggled to grab any rebounds of any sort, and should have been called for an offensive foul on a late three point play put back.

Miami which is accustomed to pulling away from teams because of a disparity in foul shots, could not get that accomplished Wednesday. In fact, they found their stars in foul trouble as well.

The Heat had their games against the Bulls where they had to play an entire four quarters to pull out a win. Indiana is healthier and a far better team in half court sets offensively than the Bulls were.

It’s going to be a tight series, and plus 7.5 may be the last standout line of this series before Vegas pulls it back to 4-5 points for a Heat home game.

It’s swing day in major league baseball which means you can catch more than just your average horse track bettor at your local book. Get that MLB lines sheet and grab wins mid-day and roll it over to tonight’s NBA playoff games.

Today’s free play comes in the total between the Braves and Diamondbacks. Tim Hudson heads to the mound against Ian Kennedy. Hudson started his first three games of the season with solid starts. Lately though he has been inconsistent, including two games of six earned runs allowed. One was on their last road trip against San Francisco.

Ian Kennedy is one of those pitchers that is crafty and gets out of jams inning after inning.

Look for both clubs to not extend either pitcher for a lot of innings this one, which means the bullpens will be called early. Grab the over in this one as innings seven thru nine will produce late runs over the total.
