Daily public money update: Oakland will mess with Texas

We have a busy Wednesday in the world of sports. The playoffs continue on the NBA hardwood with Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals between the Atlanta Hawks and Milwaukee Bucks. They are further along in the NHL, as the Tampa Bay Lightning have a chance to book a spot in the Stanley Cup Finals at the expense of the New York Islanders. Meanwhile, a 13-game schedule in Major League Baseball is highlighted by an ESPN showdown between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres. Let’s take a look at where the betting money has gone so far.

A total of 74 percent of the handle and 68 percent of the bets are hoping for a low-scoring contest that produces fewer than 226 points.
