The Betting Window – April 12th, 2011

If I went 0-5 yesterday, I would’ve contemplated quitting. I didn’t however, so here are your five picks for the day.

Picks are on the left (unless it’s an over/under).

1. @Shakhtar Donetsk vs. FC Barcelona (OVER 2.5 goals)

Barca took the first leg of this UEFA matchup, and Shakhtar is going to have to play very aggressive in order to win the second. If Barca can capitalize on their counterattacks then they might hang up a crooked number today.

2. Chelsea (+235) @Manchester United

This is purely a gut-feeling because I don’t see Chelsea getting swept by Man U. This game will end in a draw the majority of the time, but at +235 this is a really good price to bet a really good team.

3. @Boston Red Sox (Jon Lester) (-175) vs. Tampa Bay Rays (David Price)

Well played Tampa Bay. It’s officially a rivalry now between you and me.

4. Chicago Bulls (-7.5) @New York Knicks

No Amar’e means no dice for the Knickerbockers against arguably the best team in the league. For the Bulls this is a great chance for Joakim Noah to return to form, and I expect him to play some quality minutes.

5. @Portland Trailblazers (-5) vs. Memphis Grizzlies

Love the Trailblazers with Gerald Wallace and hate the Grizzlies. Feels like a lay-up.
