The weekend was pretty meh…the Blackhawks are officially dead and the Boston Celtics are doing their best to throw this season away. Oh yeah, and I’m officially done with LBJ, but more on that later.

Today, both the NBA and NHL slates are pretty ugly, so we’re treading lightly here at The Chalk. Here are my picks.

Pistons +4 

Don’t love it, but when I said I was done betting on LeBron this year I meant it. How in the fuck can you lose the Suns, the last place Suns with the playoffs on the line? That’s a great question. I’m looking forward to a LeBron-less playoffs this year, so I’m ok with losing all my money betting against him this last month of the season.

In other news…what is wrong with this guy?

Maple Leafs ML 

Like I mentioned above, this slate can’t get much uglier. So, might as well go with the Leafs, who are underdogs on the road going up against the Flames. The Flames are tough at home, but give me the Leafs, who have the better overall team.
