May opens up with a NBA Injury Update that pours down the profit for Sunday. The Hornets visit Miami for a 1PM start with the Heat being a – 6 1/2 favorite. Normally this would be spot on except for a pivotal update that makes a key Heat player questionable. Even if he were to play, his game would be very limited by a bad shoulder. So let HRWager guide your sports investment needs with the free pick to profit by for Sunday.
NBA Injury Update : Josh Richardson
MRI shown the medical staff that neither the shoulder is dislocated nor is there a tear in the region. Good or second round prospects but got to get past Game Seven to get there. How will he be missed? Offensively the slack could be picked up but it is his defensive coverage that will be sorely missed. First inclinations is that Kemba Walker will be oh so happy to remove his pesky presence. Player scoring props on him should go on the over and the total for this game might go over. Normally Game Sevens are snug scoring affairs but the Hornets best chance is to turn this into a high scoring game.
Other dimension that will hurt is that the Heat bench will shrink. Miami has a few starters really long in the tooth. Wade and Johnson are beat up and we should not expect them to be able to up any dimension of their game per minute in this one. There is no real option for another bench player to swoop in so they have to suck it up and slow the game down.
Team that controls the tempo will most certainly win this. At the very end, the Hornets inexperience might cost them but even then it would be a close loss. Therefore avoid the Hornets ML but the +6 1/2 is a must invest. HRWager’s Free Pick for Sunday is Charlotte plus the points. Good fortune and we will see you later on today here at the HRW.
