Tuley's Takes: If you like the Celtics, what are you waiting for?

June 1, 2022 08:13 PM

We can’t believe the calendar is turning to June already in the Tuley’s Takes home office.

This should be a great summer as we’re doing some family trips (San Francisco in June, Hawaii in July, plus Reno and Flagstaff to move our two oldest kids into the dorms for the fall semester). I haven’t had a day off since starting the “Tuley’s Takes Today” version of this column at VSiN.com on Sept. 13. That’s 261 straight days as of Tuesday.

I hope all of you reading Point Spread Weekly have also been reading our daily columns as we recap the prior day’s betting results, try to give an overview of the current day’s menu and give out our recommended plays for the day. Followers certainly haven’t been disappointed as we were hitting at better than 60% for three months from Super Sunday through mid-May. We hit a bit of a slump (still around 50%) the rest of the month, then closed out strong over the holiday weekend by going 4-0 ATS with our top play each day with wins on the Heat on Friday night when it seemed the whole world was on the Celtics, the New York Rangers on Saturday, the Blue Jays on Sunday (as we backed off from making the Heat our Best Bet) and the Diamondbacks on Monday. We also went 8-2 ATS overall on the holiday weekend with the Heat’s four-point loss as 3-point dogs in Game 7 being one of the losses.

I plan to continue our daily columns uninterrupted at least through the end of the NBA Finals, but there’s plenty of work to be done before even thinking of taking a day off. Let’s clean out my reporter’s notebook and give my takes on the sports we’re still following this spring.

Tuley’s Takes on the NBA

During the NBA and NHL playoffs, PSW’s Wednesday publishing date sometimes falls in the middle of the rounds, but it works out perfectly this week with the NBA taking a few days off before the Finals tip off on Thursday. The Celtics and Warriors have earned their way here. It seems weird since neither was the No. 1 seed in their conference (Celtics were No. 2 in the East while the Warriors were No. 3 in the West and even finished 11 games out of first place in their own division). However, no one seems surprised that either are here.
