#509 Boston Celtics -1.5 (8:00 edt) ESPN
The Celtics are now in complete control of this series winning 3 in a row after dropping game 1 and game 2 at home. Chicago was erratic all year and now the face elimination. Just don't see them being able to get on the mat here with the Celtics going in for the kill. Lay this very small number with Boston here.
#502 Milwaukee Bucks -1.5 (7:00 edt)
Look for the Bucks to get this win and cover to send this series to a game 7. This series has been very back and forth and the home court is going to make a big difference here. I don't see the Raptors able to put together a second strong game in a row especially against a solid Bucks team with their back to the wall here. Look for this series to need a game 7 to decide.
#711 Chicago Bulls +8 (8:30 edt) TNT
Have to go with the flow in this series and stick with the road team since the visitor has won and covered every game so far. Also the line has over shifted with the loss of Rondo here, no way he is worth as many points as the line has moved in his absence. Just too big a number here to trust the Celtics to cover at home in a series they have not yet won a home game in.
#708 Los Angeles Clippers -3 (10:30 edt) TNT
This is a classic case of play the home team in a 2-2 series. And especially true here with a line this small, only 3 points. Utah was not strong on the road ATS this season and the Clippers will be extra motivated coming off of a loss in game 4. Look for the Clippers to overcome their injury issues to get this important win and cover here.
#520 Atlanta Hawks -3 (8:00 edt) TNT
Let the home teams keep on rolling in this series as all 3 home teams are SU and ATS winners so far. Just no reason to expect anything different since Atlanta will be rejuvenated off of their game 3 win and the Wizards are still going to not be worried since even if they lose they get game 5 at home in a tied series. Simply have to jump on the home team in this series - especially at a number this low.
#963 Washington Nationals with Scherzer moneyline -150 (8:00 edt) ESPN
Huge pitching edge here to Scherzer and the Nats since Scherzer is out very strong this season with an ERA of just 1.37 and his career ERA against the Mets is just 1.88. Wheeler goes for the Mets and he has not started out strong with an ERA of 5.52 and his career numbers against Washington are 2-6 record with a 4.69 ERA. Big edge here to Washington, play the Nats at this fair price.
#509 Cleveland Cavaliers -3.5 (1:00 edt) ABC
You saw game 3 and the way the Pacers fell apart in the second half. Just no way they can come back after that loss especially against a team led by James who knows better than anyone the importance of taking care of business to get rest for the next series. Think Irving and Love will shoot terrible 2 games in a row? I don't think so. Lay this surprisingly low number with Cleveland here.
#507 Golden State Warriors -6.5 (10:30 edt) ESPN
The Warriors have had their way in this series so far through 2 games and I don't see how that changes just because the series shifts to Portland. With or without Durant the Warriors have shown their ability to win games easily and that looks to be the case here as they look to take a commanding 3-0 lead in this series. Lay this very reasonable number with Golden State here.
#715 Boston Celtics +2 (7:00 edt) ESPN
The Celtics are in a world of hurt down 2-0 in this series so look for them to come out guns a blazin' here. Chicago has been excellent but they were noted this season for a clunker performance when things are going good. Boston has had an extra day to get ready for this one and they will be ready to get a win. Take the Celtics and the points here.
#713 - #714 San Antonio Spurs - Memphis Grizzlies OVER 185.5 (9:30 edt) TNT
It must be the playoffs since the Spurs have cranked up the defense big time leading to a 2-0 lead in the series. This is the last stand for Memphis since they can't afford to go down 3-0 so look for them to pull out all the stops to get points here. The Spurs are perfectly content to win high scoring games or low scoring games, with Memphis making a big time effort to increase score here look for the Spurs to happily play along leading to a game that gets over this very low number.
