    Game 2 was the Trailblazers best chance to steal a game after having a double digit lead most of the game only to go cold in the last 10 minutes. KD is still out and not expected back until game 5 and I just feel like his absence is going to be felt at some point. This is a do or die game for Portland and I think they get the win here back on their home court.

    My Pick: Portland -2.5 50%

    Keller has been rocked in 2 of his last 3 starts and Harvey had issues early this season but has looked improved of late. The problem with KC is their offense production and they have been losing games by the boatload and there's only three teams that have lost more money than them up to this point. Angels are the clear favorite here but at -160 there are better games on the board today.

    Boston +122 as a home dog is tempting as the Red Sox have won each of Porcellos last five starts. Cole hasn't been the model of consistency lately and Boston is a step up from Detroit and Texas. All things considered, I think the vale bet is Boston in this spot.

    My Pick: Boston +122 50%

    The Cardinals have had some success with Wacha on the mound this season, but he's walked 22 batters in 37 innings and has given up eight runs in his last 10.2 innings. Soroka has been rock solid for the Braves through 29.2 innings, giving up just 20 hits and four earned runs and a .183 allowed batting average. All things considered, the Braves have a significant edge on the mound today and should be able to get to Wacha. t.

    My Pick: Atlanta -145 50%

    These two teams are statistically mirror images of each other and both teams have struggled of late. Toronto is trying to address their banged up rotation and acquired veteran Edwin Jackson from Oakland is getting his first start tonight. Jackson has a career ERA of 4.60 and will be going against Shaun Anderson who is also getting his first start. Anderson, 24, owns a 4.11 ERA in seven starts at Triple-A Sacramento and is ranked as the No. 4 prospect and the top pitcher in the Giants farm system according to MLB.com. This game is a total crap shoot for bettors and probably a stay away game, but I would lean Giants here today but with low confidence until Anderson proves himself on the big stage.

    All Odorizzi has done over the last month is win games, going 5-0 with a 0.86 ERA over his last five starts (over 31.1 innings). Odorizzi has also not allowed a run in three straight starts, pushing his scoreless streak to 20 innings. Cahill on the other hand is carrying a 6.35 ERA and while he looked descent against Baltimore, I just don't trust Cahill. Give me the better offense with the better hurler.

    My Pick: Minnesota -146 50%

    The Twins will tee off on Skaggs, who was shelled in his last start. Berrios wont give up more than a few runs and Minnesota's 6th ranked offense will do the rest.

    DOG OF THE DAY - I give Baltimore a more than reasonable chance to win this game today. Baltimore is better than they have played and I dont trust Loaisiga who is carrying a 4.50 ERA. The only bet here tonight is with the O's and the big plus money.

    My Pick: Baltimore +200 50%

    I always love to see Dame/CJ and Steph/Klay go at it. We will be better off facing Denver though from a matchup/experience standpoint even without DeMarcus.

    ***OVER 9.5*** Both Holland and Gray have been rocked in their last 3 starts and Holland has had issues with control and he's making his first start in over a week due to battling a finger bruise. Gray has allowed 10 earned runs in his last 10.2 innings and has allowed five runs in three of his last six games. I'll follow the trends here tonight and take the OVER 9.5 in what should be a high scoring affair.

    My Pick: Over 9.5 50%

    Yusei Kikuchi gave up 1 run in 7 innings in his last start and Loaisiga usually goes no more than 3-4 innings, so hard to factor him into the equation. Yankees are the much hotter team over the past 2 weeks and they also have the stronger pen. I'll lean Yankees here tonight.

    My Pick: New York -133 50%

    Just like the odds suggest, this game is virtually a coin flip, there's not a lot of difference between either starter here but you've got to give the offensive edge to LA. Boyd and a low line at home is tempting, but I think the Angels build on game one and pick up another win here.

    My Pick: Los Angeles +102 50%

    You just felt that the Trailblazers would win Game 4 if they could just tie the game, but the Nuggets just wouldnt miss down the stretch as everyone from Jokic, Harris, Millsap and Murray made clutch shots down the stretch. This young team is dangerous and the future is bright for the Denver Nuggets but I still think their youth will catchup with them at some point in this series. I think Denver wins another close game tonight 113-110 type of score,; in a game that could go either way you've got to take the 4.5 points.

    My Pick: Portland +4.5 50%

    It's been tough to get a good feel of this series and I guess you can make an argument for the Raptors as big favorites given the fact that the average margin of victory in this series has been 11 points. Toronto is expected to win this series and I believe they will, but 6 just feels like too many points against a very capable 76ers team.

    My Pick: Philadelphia +6 50%
