Sketchy handicapping angle. Pay a small premium for well rested teams however as evidenced last night MILW didn't cover until
the 28 second mark in the 4th.

Shaq feels rest is overrated in the postseason.

He says when your team is in rhythm, you want to play the game.

Obviously, no back-to-back games in the NBA playoffs.

It should be interesting if the Boston Bruins get a 10-day breather before the Cup.

Remember when the Colorado Rockies were on fire a few years ago. Then finished their series and waited and got cold.

Excellent illustration.

The 2007 Rockies were forced to wait eight days between the National League Championship Series and the World Series.

They had won 21 of 22 games spanning the regular season and postseason before getting swept in four games by a combined score of 29-10 at the hands of the Boston Red Sox.

A six-day pause sapped the magic from the Detroit Tigers' rush to the title in October of 2006 when they lost to the underdog St. Louis Cardinals in five games.

In the Red Sox World Series with Colorado was it the rust that got Colorado or was it the better opponent that stopped the rockies ?
