Best MLB pick: Miami Marlins vs. Pittsburgh Pirates Over 8 Runs (-105), 7:05 pm ET
It’s somewhat of a surprise to see a total as low as eight in this game. While Cody Poteet was excellent in his first three big-league starts, they were just three starts, not nearly a big enough sample size to have full confidence in him over the course of a full season, especially given his minor league numbers from the past few years. Mitch Keller has more experience at this level, further solidifying the argument for the over. In addition to the .290 batting average opponents have hit at against him, he walks more than 4.5 per nine innings. Given the pitchers tonight, we like the over to be the play.
Best MLB pick: Cincinnati Reds vs. St. Louis Cardinals ML (-145), 8:15 pm ET
For game two of the series, the Reds will send the struggling Luis Castillo to the mound and the Reds have not fared well when he gets the ball. Castillo has made 10 starts this season and has taken the loss in seven consecutive outings while the Reds have lost his last nine starts. His lone good start was his first outing of the year against the Pirates and has been on the decline since.
Kwang-hyun Kim will get the ball for the home team and he will be thrilled to return to Busch Stadium after four straight starts on the road. In his three starts in St. Louis, Kim has posted a 1-0 record with a 1.84 ERA and has looked a lot more comfortable on the mound in his home park. He has also been excellent against the Reds in his career, accumulating a 3-0 record and a 0.54 ERA. For that reason, we like the Reds.
Best NBA pick: Los Angeles Clippers -3 (-110) vs. Dallas Mavericks, 9:05 pm ET
Road teams have gone 5-0 in this series so far and that is only the fifth time that has happened in NBA Playoff history. The Clippers had a great chance at home to take control of this series, but they couldn’t handle Luka Doncic down the stretch and fell 105-100. It wasn’t a good shooting night for L.A. — they went only 41 percent from the field led by Paul George who had 23 points and 10 rebounds on the night. Kawhi Leonard and Reggie Jackson each added 20 in the loss. Kawhi in particular will have to play a lot better if the Clippers want to avoid elimination tonight. Los Angeles has covered the spread eight times in the last 10 visits to Dallas, so there is definitely reason for optimism. So, for that reason, we like the Clippers to cover.
Best NHL pick: Colorado Avalanche vs. Vegas Golden Knights Over 5.5 Goals (-110), 10:08 pm ET
As a team, the Avalanche have averaged five goals per game in the playoffs and four of their last six postseason games have gone over the total number. Vegas is not shy of putting the puck in the net, as they have averaged 2.56 goals per game in the postseason. They will look to cause problems for the Avalanche’s second line tonight. Four of the last seven games for Vegas have gone over the total. For that reason, we like the over.
