    MILWAUKEE -105 - Good price on the Brewers today- Davies has been strong at Miller Park with less than one earned run allowed over 23.2 innings pitched. Cincinnati ranks 29th in the offense on the road this season and I think Davies should be able to keep it that way.

    My Pick: Milwaukee -105

    Giolito is coming off a stellar game against Cleveland giving up 0 earned in 7 innings pitched. No reason to think Toronto will snap out of their funk today, I like Chicago and Giolito to win the rubber game.

    My Pick: Chicago +102

    I like Dodgers here but -140 is a little rich, I think you are right....Overs have some value here

    My Pick: Los Angeles -143

    Samardzija has looked every bit as good as Maeda in their last 3 starts, so the plus money is tempting, but my problem with San Fran is their bats, who rank 27th (almost dead last) in offense. I like the bats to pick up Maeda today and get the win but at -145 not a lot of value in this game.. I still think Samardzija should have stuck with football, I'll lay the -140 with the MUCH better offense in this game.

    My Pick: Los Angeles -143

    Davies has looked sharp to start out the season but the Rockies have been the hotter team over the last couple of weeks. I know Colorado didnt finish the sweep against Atlanta, but getting the Rockies with Kyle Freeland at this price feels like some solid value.

    My Pick: Colorado +103

    Wacha put up seven earned in 3.2 innings versus the Dodgers in a no-decision April 11, but bounced back in his last outing versus Milwaukee with two earned on five hits in 6.0 innings. As for Corbin, he has five straight quality starts to begin the season and has given up just three earned in his last two starts in 13.2 innings. A little pricey odds, but I like Corbin here in a low scoring game.

    My Pick: Washington -139

    Back-to-back games where the Warriors have had a 30-plus point lead over the Clippers and pretty much had their way with them through the first three quarters. 10 points is a lot for any playoff game, but LA simply doesn't have an answer for the Dubs explosive offense. I'll lay the points and also like Warriors -5 FIRST HALF as the Clippers have gotten off to extremely slow starts in every game this series.

    My Pick: Golden State -9.5

    I like Syracuse +6 first half. I think Syracuse carries over their game flow from last night and Duke will be a little rusty with Zion back in the lineup. Good spot for a 1st half bet.

    Clemson has played well at home lately, so the Tigers being favored makes sense. However, Syracuse has done a good job rebounding after a loss, and this has the feel of a defensive struggle, grind it out kind of game where you are going to have to work for points on every possession. I think the Orange have the weapons to keep pace with Clemson offensively and since the defense cancels out in my opinion, I think the points hold some value here in a game I see coming down to the wire.

    My Pick: Syracuse +5

    Syracuse might be the best pure situational fade on the card, as the Orange will travel to lowly Wake Forest after taking on Duke and UNC with a game against Virginia on Monday. That is your sandwich du jour, but I just cant bet a Demon Deacons team that cant shoot (329th in 3P%) against the Cuse zone.

    My Pick: Syracuse -7.5

    UNC is looking like a final four team right now and at 12:1 odds is in my opinion the best bet (best odds payout) to win the title. Clemson lost to Miami and Florida State in February and UNC beat both Miami and Florida State in February. On the road or not, I'm laying the small line with the hotter team right now.

    My Pick: North Carolina -4.5

    I'm trying to convince myself to take Buffalo but 14 just feels like too many. Akron has been great against the number and they have a solid defense and can knock down three-pointers (rank 65th in three-pointers made per game). The Zips had competitive in road losses at Toledo, Ball State, and Bowling Green and as they were able to cover against the Bulls in a 76-70 loss earlier this season. No Sir, too many points tonight.

    My Pick: Akron +14

    Tough line to pick apart tonight and hard to predict which Syracuse team shows up tonight. They looked good for 3 quarters the other night against a Zionless Duke team and then got snapped. Syracuse might be fighting for their tournament lives so maybe they show up tonight. If they don't it could be a route because UNC has averaged 86 PPG last 3 games. Lots of talk early this week of North Carolina being the best odds at 12:1 to win the title this year. We will see if those odds change after tonight's game. I got the Tar Heels winning 81-68.

    My Pick: North Carolina -11
