The first game on today’s card we have the Hawks taking on the Knicks. The Hawks have looked very good in the series with Trae Young putting down 27.5 points per game and 10 assists per game. The Knicks on the other hand have struggled to stay in these last two games. If the Knicks want to have a chance to advance, they are going to have to turn it around fast. My pick for this game is the Hawks +1.5.
Today we have the Trail Blazers taking on the Nuggets. The Nuggets really struggled in game 4 letting the Trail Blazers shoot 50% from the field. The Nuggets ended up losing that game by 20 points. Fortunately for the Nuggets they know how to come back in the playoffs with two 3-1 comebacks last season. I think the Nuggets get back on track in this game and cover the 1.5 point spread.
The 76ers are looking for the sweep tonight when they take on the Wizards. The Wizards kept it close in game 1, but games 2 and 3 did not look good for the Wizards. The 76ers looked very good in game 3 thanks to a great performance from Joel Embiid. The Wizards have struggled to move the ball in the series. I think that the 76ers will have another dominant performance here to clinch the series against the Wizards. My pick for this game is the 76ers -7.5.
For today’s NBA card we look at the Suns vs Lakers game for Sunday May 30th. The Suns lack of playoff experience has really showed in the last two games. If they want to win this game, they need to come out faster in the second half. Also, it is important that they get Chris Paul more involved in the game. With the uncertainty of Anthony Davis’ injury, this is a must win game for the Suns. I am taking the Suns +6.5 in this game, but I believe there is a somewhat decent chance they win this game outright.
For today’s game we have the 76ers taking on the Wizards. The Wizards have struggled to shoot the three ball this season only knocking down 35.1% from beyond the arch. The 76ers on the other hand do a really good job defending the 3 only allowing 36.1% from beyond the arch. My pick for this game is the 76ers -5.5.
On today’s card we have the Clippers taking on the Mavericks. The Clippers come in needing a win after dropping the first 2 games in the series. The Clippers have done a really good jo shooting the basketball this season hitting 83.9% from the free throw line. The Mavericks on the other hand are only hitting 77.5% from the free throw line. My pick for this game is the Clippers -2.
Tonight, we have game 3 between the Heat and Bucks. The Bucks looked very good in game 2 shooting lights out from beyond the arch. The Heat need to lean on Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo if they want to avoid the potential sweep in this series. Even with the home crowd in Miami, I think the Bucks will continue to be to much for the Heat to handle. I am on the Bucks -1.5 in this one.
The first game on today’s card is the Wizards taking on the 76ers. The Wizards come into this game following their loss in game 1 of the series. The key for the Wizards winning this game is shutting down Embiid and Harris who had monster games in game 1. If Beal and Westbrook play well, the Wizards should take this game. My pick for this game is the Wizards +8.
For today’s NBA play we have the Lakers taking on the Suns. One thing that I love about this Suns team is how well they have shot there free throws this season hitting 83.4%. The Lakers on the other hand are only knocking down 73.7% from the free throw line. If the Suns can shut down LeBron they should win this game taking a 2-0 lead in the series. My pick for this game is the Suns Money Line +106.
Today in the MLB we have the Braves taking on the Red Sox. The Red Sox have done a good job scoring runs this season with 5.19 runs per game. The Braves on the other hand haven’t done as well with only 4.96 runs per game. With Garret Richards on the mound for the Red Sox this game they should be able to get the win. I am on the Red Sox +105 here.
