Best Euro 2020 pick: France ML (-165) vs. Switzerland, 3pm ET
France often comes alive in the knockout stages of a major competition and it should be plain sailing for Les Bleus when they meet neighbors Switzerland in Bucharest. The 2018 World Cup winners sealed a place in the last 16 of Euro 2020 without operating anywhere near their best. Didier Deschamps’ men advanced from Group F unbeaten, recording a 1-0 win over Germany and playing out ties with Hungary and Portugal. They shouldn’t find the challenge of Switzerland any more taxing.

Best NHL pick: Montreal Canadiens vs. Tampa Bay Lightning Under 5 Goals (+100), 8pm ET
Game 1 will be a feeling-out process as the teams try and ease themselves into the Stanley Cup Finals. We don’t expect to see too many offensive chances in the first period unless there is a big mistake. The goaltenders in this series are likely the two best goalies in the league. Along with the goalies, both teams are great defensively–leading them to the second and third-best goals-against average this far into the playoffs.
Montreal’s penalty kill has been operating at a very impressive 93.5 percent success rate during this playoff run and it will have to continue that going up against the very lethal powerplay that the Lightning possess. Should there be any penalties called against the Canadiens, they should be able to kill them off. We are looking to the under five goals in Game 1.
Best MLB pick: Chicago Cubs vs. Milwaukee Brewers ML (-155), 8.10pm ET
With Sunday’s win, the Brewers have won five in a row and seven of their last eight games heading into the series with the Cubs. A reason they have been so successful recently has been because of their offense which was almost non-existent in the beginning of the year, but it has been their pitching that has earned them 45 wins this season. The Brewers pitching staff has emerged as one of the best in the league and Freddy Peralta has become a rising star at 25 years old. In 81.0 innings this season, the righty has posted a 2.11 ERA with a 0.86 WHIP and has been even better at home. In 46.1 innings at home, opponents are hitting .109 against Peralta and his success should continue against a Cubs offense that hits worse on the road.
Best NBA pick: Los Angeles Clippers vs. Phoenix Suns -5.5 (-110), 9pm ET
The Phoenix Suns will look to close out the Los Angeles Clippers and punch their ticket to the NBA Finals here in Game 5. For a few reasons, we think they’ll be able to do so. Phoenix has played by far their worst basketball of the playoffs in this series and they still hold a 3-1 lead. They’ve won multiple games despite having awful shooting nights, so as long as their offense improves just a bit at home here they should win comfortably.
