The Raptors did not disappoint. We pointed out that there is value on the home dog team, who btw, will probably be favored every game at home. Yet, the odds for the series opened as high as Golden State -300??? What am I missing? Answer: Nothing. It is a smart bet to take the Raptors in every game and was a smart bet at the start of the series to bet them to win the series. Now that they are only +130 for the series there isn't nearly as much value. And the public is late to the show, of course, and are only now betting them after seeing the way they dispatched with the Warriors in game 1.

We said there was value in St. Louis as a dog as well. In our NHL Stanley Cup Series preview and pick, we showed that St. Louis is 16-8 SU in its last 24 games when playing Boston. And they were getting +145 on the series money line. To me that is the pure definition of value. The series is tied at 1-1. Even if Boston goes on to win the series, the value was there at the start. And that's what sports betting is.. It's about finding value and betting it. No matter how improbable you may feel, if the numbers are saying something, you must listen to them.

One guy that won't be happy if the Blues lose is the guy that bet a $400 St. Louis futures ticket at season start to win $100,00. He is sweating bullets right now.
