Best MLB pick: Los Angeles Angels vs. Tampa Bay Rays ML (-135), 1:10pm ET
Ryan Yarbrough takes the hill for the Rays, and although he has not been great in his last two outings he seems to be in a solid position to get back on track in this matchup. Los Angeles’ bats are cold and the Tampa Bay offense is heating up. Additionally, the Rays have one of the better bullpens in baseball, as their 3.02 ERA is the best in the American League. That is a stark contrast from the Los Angeles bullpen, as their bullpen ERA of 4.83 is the second-worst in the AL. With an offense that is heating up and a shutdown bullpen, back the Rays.
Best MLB pick: Pittsburgh Pirates vs. St. Louis Cardinals ML (-150), 2:15pm ET
Coming off a loss, Pittsburgh is going with righty Max Kranick on Sunday. It is going to be his MLB debut. The Cardinals’ Johan Oviedo still has not won a game this season. Oviedo gets a bit of a break by taking on the Bucs and their light-hitting lineup hasn’t seen him this season. Even if he gets knocked around a bit, the Cardinals should be able to match that damage and then some against Kranick. Take St Louis.
Best Euro 2020 pick: Belgium to advance (-150) vs. Portugal 3pm ET
The strength of this Belgian side lies in their ability to control the game in midfield and create chances for their goal machine, Romelu Lukaku. The Inter Milan striker has scored 23 times in his last 20 appearances for Belgium, including scoring three at Euro 2020 so far, and he could well hit the back of the net against Portugal. Supplying the bullets for Lukaku is midfield ace Kevin De Bruyne, who should pick apart a Portuguese defense that has lost its edge, conceding six times in the group stages. With neither side convincing in defense and both possessing high-quality frontlines, this last-16 tie could well be settled in midfield. Take Belgium to advance to the quarter-finals.

Best NBA pick: Milwaukee Bucks vs. Atlanta Hawks under 223.5 points (-110), 8:35pm ET
For Milwaukee, Khris Middleton shot ten percentage points better from three-point range at home during the regular season than on the road. The under is 6-2-1 in the Bucks’ last nine overall and 4-1-1 in their last six as favorites. It is also 5-1 in the Hawks’ last six overall, 6-2 in their last eight at home and 5-0 in their last five playing on one day of rest. Look for this one to stay under the total.
