Hope you were with our prediction last weekend, when we took Philly with a 4.5-point start to overcome New Jersey in the playoff semifinals. They did even better than that, coming away with a 19-14 win to progress.
This weekend it’s for all the marbles in Canton, and we have another nice bet lined up for you.
Philly is absolutely on the crest of a wave, the hottest of hot. It’s time to ride the Stars one last time.
They again get 4.5 points on the early line, our advice is to take it.
