What’s up sports bettors, I hope you guys are doing well. The first play is in the NBA. I am going back to the Eastern Conference Finals for this one. Game four should be a good one as the Milwaukee Bucks try to go up 3-1, while the Toronto Raptors try to tie it up at two a piece. Giannis Antetokounmpo was not happy with the result in game three because he went 5-16 and eight turnovers. Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe also need to bounce back games as they both went 3-16 from the field.
The Bucks are a very confident team and many see that from how they play together on the court to what they say in the many interviews they had this season. On the other hand, Kawhi Leonard’s leg injury could be a factor. However, I do not think the injury is serious, but with his injury history, the Toronto Raptors are hoping that he is fine. A trend to keep in mind is the Bucks are 21-5 ATS in their last 26 games following a straight up loss this season. These are the two best teams when it comes to defensive efficiency in the playoffs. I am going with the Bucks because I think Antetokounmpo, Middleton, and Bledsoe will play much better.
Pick: Milwaukee Bucks -2 (1.90/-111)
The second play of the night will be in the MLB. The New York Yankees are taking on the Baltimore Orioles. The New York Yankees have been on fire lately by going 8-2 in the last 10 games, The Tampa Rays held the division lead for over forty days, but the Yankees have been resilient while seeing 17 players hitting the IL this season. The Yankees hold a 29-17 record; however, the Orioles are struggling as expected. They hold a 15-32 record and went 2-8 in their last 10 games.
The Yankees are going with Domingo German who is having a great season. He is 8-1, has a 2.50 ERA, and pitched 50.1 innings. In the other side of the dugout, the Orioles are going with David Hess. He, on the other hand, has had a terrible start. He is 1-5, holds a 5.58 ERA, and pitched 40.1 innings. Last time out German had a quality start against the Orioles, where he went 7.0 innings and only giving up one run. Gleyber Torres has also destroyed Baltimore in recent games. I feel like the Yankees will continue the dominance they have been showing lately Although I believe the Yankees can win by more than one run, I would take the moneyline if you can wager a little bit more or if you have a small parlay in mind.
Pick: New York Yankees ML (1.47/-212)
Staying in MLB and in the division for the last play of the night. The Boston Red Sox are taking on the Toronto Blue Jays. The Boston Red Sox were off to a terrible start in the beginning in the season. However, they turned it around recently going 7-3 in the last 10 games. The Blue Jays are 19-28 and are getting ready to rebuild; thus putting players like Marcus Stroman, Aaron Sanchez, Justin Smoak, and others. They are looking for answers as they went 4-6 in the last 10 games.
The Red Sox are going with Eduardo Rodriguez who has a record of 4-2 with a 4.89 ERA in 49.2 innings. The Blue Jays are going with Marcus Stroman who holds a record of 1-6 with a 2.95 ERA in 58.0 innings. The Blue Jays are 0-4 in his last four starts. The Red Sox beat the Jays 12-2 last night. I am going with the Red Sox. Good luck to all.
Pick: Boston Red Sox (1.72/-139)
