Pick ONE game per day, starting with NBA Round 2 (Maybe starting on Saturday May 3).

Most wins at the end of the NBA Playoffs wins. We may pay two places if we get enough entries.
Use lines from http://www.usatoday.com/sports/gaming/sheridan.htm

I will post lines daily as well. Dues are 25.

Pep: Nice try, but wrong on two counts
A) The Bos Atl series is round one; we're only using rounds 2-4
B) You can't tease a game. We'd all love the Celts at 8, line is 14.5
