NBA Playoffs: Trailblazers vs. Warriors Point Spread Pick from Bob Harvey: May 3rd 2016

TRAILBLAZERS VS. WARRIORSPortland Trailblazers vs. Golden State Warriors
NBA Playoffs Point Spread Pick: Blazers +10.5 (May 3rd 2016)
CLICK HERE FOR BOB HARVEY’S EXPERT NBA PICKS

The Golden State Warriors continue their quest for a second straight NBA title when they host the Portland Trailblazers in Game 2 of their Western Conference series. Golden State took the opener 118-106 behind Klay Thompson buried seven 3-pointers en route to a game-high 37 points. Draymond Green turned in one of the best individual efforts in the playoffs contributed 23 points, 13 rebounds, 11 assists, three blocks and a steal in 37 minutes

The Trail Blazers (48-41, 47-42 ATS) got a break in the first round when the Clippers lost Chris Paul and Blake Griffin to injuries for the final two games of that series. They were hoping to get a jump on the Warriors before a possible return from Curry who could return to action later in the series, perhaps as soon as Saturday.

With Stephen Curry still out with a knee injury, the Warriors (78-10, 50-36 ATS) have seen Thompson step up his game. The former Washington State star is 21 of 36 from beyond the arc in his last three games, becoming the first player in NBA history with at least seven 3-pointers in three straight playoff games.

The OVER IS 4-0 in the last four meetings in Oakland and 13-3 in the last 16 overall.

The Trail Blazers are 7-22 ATS in the past 29 meetings on the Warriors home court.

I was on the wrong end of Oakland’s 3-4 loss on Monday with my free selection, but I’m staying on the A’s bandwagon for Tuesday’s matchup. Oakland is simply showing too much value at home with their ace Sonny Gray on the mound to pass up. Gray has a 2.33 ERA and 1.242 WHIP over 3 home starts and is 4-1 with a 2.14 ERA and 1.085 WHIP in 9 career starts against the Mariners. A’s are a perfect 6-0 in Gray’s last 6 home starts against a team with a winning record. Give me Oakland -120!

Texas Rangers vs. Toronto Blue Jays Runline Odds & Prediction: May 3rd 2016

RANGERS VS. BLUE JAYS RUNLINE PREDICTION

Texas Rangers vs. Toronto Blue Jays
MLB Betting Prediction: Toronto -1.5 +120 odds (May 3rd 2016)
CLICK HERE FOR BRANDON SHIVELY’S EXPERT MLB PICKS

The Blue Jays beat the Rangers last year in the playoffs to advance to the ALCS. Last night, the Rangers pitching shut down Toronto and got a ‘revenge’ win after being outed last year in the playoffs.

Looking at tonight’s game, I see Toronto who is playing at home, with a more favorable pitching matchup. They will face Martin Perez, who got the start for the Rangers last year in Game 3 of the playoffs, and Toronto tagged him for 6 hits that equated for 4 runs. Perez issued 3 walks in that start. This year his walk rate is off to a career high, walking 4.5 batters per nine innings. Also, his K/9 is at a career low at only 4.2 strikeouts per nine innings pitched. Perez has never been anything special and is a bottom end of the rotation starter. Texas is 0-2 in his two road starts this season and 3-7 dating back to last year. The last six road losses have ALL come by two or more runs.

Much of that is due to run support, or a lack of by Texas. In those six losses, the RAngers are only averaging 0.83 runs a game. Yes, Texas has been shutout in three of these road starts. Based on recent history, I can’t see them just ‘waking up’ all the sudden and scoring enough runs for them to win this game tonight.

Toronto will call on Marco Estrada who won Game 3 in the Playoffs last year. He made two starts vs. the Rangers last season and only gave up 2 runs in 12.1 innings pitched. While Estrada’s walk rate is up a bit this year, his strikeout rate is also up, which is a good thing at 9.12 K’s per 9 innings. Unfortunately, Estrada has not been able to get run support either this year at only 2.19 runs a game.

Toronto has now lost four straight games at home, where they played so good and hit the ball oh so well last season. They haven’t lost five straight since 2013. I feel they are in position for a win tonight. Much of the problems have been because of the lack of offense. But there is potential for them to wake up, facing a left handed in Perez, that is a contact pitcher that has more walks than strikeouts this season.

Toronto is 4-0 in Estrada’s four career home regular season starts as a home favorite of -150 or greater.They have won ALL four games by two or more runs with an average final score of 7-3. The Ranger’s have lost Perez’s last 3 regular season road starts when an underdog of +140 or more, ALL by 2 runs or more. I like this spot to lay the -1.5 runs for plus $$ on Tuesday night. (1* Toronto -1.5 runs)

Charlotte Hornets vs. Miami Heat NBA Point Spread Pick from Scott Rickenbach: May 1st 2016

HORNETS HEAT BETTING

Charlotte Hornets vs. Miami Heat
NBA Point Spread Pick: Heat -6 (May 1st 2016)
CLICK HERE FOR SCOTT RICKENBACH’S EXPERT NBA PICKS

Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach NBA *1* Free Pick Miami Heat -6 vs Charlotte Hornets @ 1:05 PM ET Sunday – The Heat have all the momentum back in this series. It’s been a series of shifting momentum as Miami won the first two games and then Charlotte won three straight. The Hornets had their chance to close out the series on their home floor and failed. That is going to make it awfully tough to bounce back here and I just don’t see it happening. Making matters worse for Charlotte is the Nicolas Batum injury situation. Look for the Heat to roll as they already had two home wins by an average margin of 22 points per game earlier in the series. The fact that Miami then lost on their home floor in Game 5 (by just a bucket) strengthens their resolve here. Off of the upset win in Game 6 that saved their season, Miami is 8-3 ATS on the season when off of an upset win as an underdog. Charlotte is 3-6 ATS as a road dog of 6.5 to 9 points this season. At the time of this posting, 6.5 is the dominant number in the markets but there is some 6 available. My advice is to grab it! Consider a small play on the Miami Heat -6 as it is my Free Pick for Sunday. Best of luck, Scott

Houston Astros vs. Oakland Athletics Over-Under Odds & Pick from Brandon Lee: May 1st 2016

ASTROS VS. ATHLETICS ODDS

Houston Astros vs. Oakland Athletics
MLB Over-Under Pick: Under 8.5 runs (May 1st 2016)
CLICK HERE FOR BRANDON LEE’S EXPERT MLB PICKS

Oakland took Game 2 of the series 2-0 yesterday and I look for another low-scoring affair at the pitcher friendly Coliseum on Sunday. The A’s will send out one of the more underrated starters in the game right now in Rich Hill, who has a 2.42 ERA and 1.269 WHIP in 5 starts with a ridiculous 37 strikeouts in 26 innings of work. Houston is a team that strikes out a lot and Hill should have the Astros hitters whiffing early an often in this one. Houston will send out Doug Fister, who has a not so impressive 5.56 ERA and 1.500 WHIP, but will be facing a bad Oakland offense. The A’s are scoring just 2.9 runs/game at home and a mere 2.6 runs/game with a .176 team average in 9 day games. Give me the UNDER 8.5!

Tigers vs. Twins MLB Over-Under Pick from Matt Josephs: May 1st 2016

TIGERS VS. TWINS BETTINGDetroit Tigers vs. Minnesota Twins
MLB Over-Under Pick: Over 9 runs (May 1st 2016)
CLICK HERE FOR MATT JOSEPHS’ EXPERT MLB PICKS

Mike Pelfrey is 0-4 with a 6.33 ERA and a WHIP of 1.968 in four starts for the Tigers. He has struggled to do anything right striking out just nine while walking 12 over 21.3 innings of work. Pelfrey has pitched terribly this season, but has three unders because Detroit has scored just one run in his last three starts. Minnesota’s offense is mediocre, but even they should be able to feast on the awful righty. Ricky Nolasco has a 5.02 ERA in two home outings for the Twins. Last year it was the best of times (5.3 IP 0 ER 7 K 3 BB) and the worst of times (3 IP 6 ER 6 H 2 K 4 BB) for Nolasco when it came to facing Detroit. Mike Aviles (8-14), Miguel Cabrera (3-11), Jose Iglesias (3-3), Ian Kinsler (7-17), Victor Martinez (5-11) and JD Martinez (5-15) all hit the Twins starter well. The Tigers have scored 37 runs in their last six games and have gone over in six of their last eight overall. These two have gone over in 13 of their last 21 meetings in Minnesota. I think this one does too.

Thunder vs. Spurs Odds: Zack Cimini betting San Antonio -7 on April 30th 2016

THUNDER VS. SPURS ODDS

Oklahoma City Thunder vs. San Antonio Spurs
NBA Betting Pick: San Antonio -7 points (April 30th 2016)
CLICK HERE FOR ZACK CIMINI’S EXPERT NBA PICKS

With just one NBA game slated for Saturday Zack has offers up a free play between the Thunder and Spurs.

One thing the NBA continuously teaches us is to trust the Spurs and LeBron in the months of May and June.

Although the Thunder have made changes from last year to a new Coach they still lack the same intangibles that caused their prior declines.

One they melt away leads too quickly and another is the inconsistent defensive and bench production.

With San Antonio’s ease of defeating the Memphis Grizzlies, one may expect rust to be evident in game one of the next round.

I’m on the opposite side of the spectrum as I believe they should come out stronger to start this series and wane ATS value as it extends.

This game failed to make my premium play board but is worthy of free play consideration.

San Francisco Giants vs. New York Mets MLB Pick from Mike Lundin: April 30th 2016

GIANTS VS. METS PREDICTIONS

San Francisco Giants vs. New York Mets
MLB Pick: Mets -178 odds (April 30th 2016)

It’s a fairly expensive price on the New York Mets, but I just don’t see them lose this one so I’m looking to make some easy cash with Jacob deGrom (2-0, 1.54) on the mound.

Degrominator has been dominant in previous meetings with the Giants posting a 2-0 career mark with a 1.17 ERA and 17 strikeouts over 15 1/3 innings of work. He allowed one run and did not walk a batter for the second straight outing in a 3-2 win over Atlanta on Sunday his last time out.

The Giants turn to Matt Cain (0-2, 6.43) who is 4-2 with a 2.05 ERA over his last nine starts against the Mets but 0-5 with a 6.64 ERA in his last 11 starts overall. He gave up four runs on 10 hits through 5 2/3 innings of a 5-4 loss to the Fish last Sunday and the Giants are 3-12 in Cain’s last 15 starts with five days of rest.

Cain has a swollen 1.67 WHIP for the year and the Mets are 11-1 in their last 12 games vs. a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30 and the ball club has won 10 of its past 11 overall.

Note that:
– Mike Lundin is 117-95, +$1,166 with his MLB selections since 24th September 2015. Don’t miss his MLB 3-Pack Saturday **ALL LATE** on Saturday.

Texas is worth a look here as a small home favorite in Saturday’s matchup against the Angels. The Rangers will have a big edge on the mound in this one, as they sound out Derek Holland against LA’s Matt Shoemaker. Holland comes into this game with a strong 3.13 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 4 starts. Holland has been especially good when starting at night. He has a 2.70 ERA in 3 starts at night, compared to a 4.26 ERA in day games. I really like his chances of out performing Shoemaker, who has a 6.87 ERA and 1.64 WHIP in 4 starts. Shoemaker made a name for himself going 16-4 with a 3.04 ERA and 1.07 WHIP in 2014, but came back to reality with a 4.46 ERA in 24 starts last year. Clearly he’s not found his touch from two years ago and at this price it’s worth the gamble to go against him. Give me the Rangers -120!

River Plate vs. Independiente Soccer Betting Odds & Pick from Martin Griffiths: April 28th 2016

RIVER PLATE VS. INDEPENDIENTE ODDSRiver Plate vs. Independiente
Soccer Betting Pick: Independiente +117 odds (April 28th 2016)
CLICK HERE FOR MARTIN GRIFFITHS’ EXPERT SOCCER PICKS

Argentinian outfit River Plate travel to Ecuador to face off against Independiente in the first leg of the top South American competition, the Copa Libertadores.

River Plate are the current holders of the trophy and are looking to retain the championship they won so comprehensively last year, however I fear that they will struggle to get anything from this game.

River Plate are struggling this season domestically, they are currently 8th in Group A of the Primera Division and come into this game having won just once in their last seven domestic games.

Independiente are only doing slightly better in their league, winning three times in their last seven domestic games, but are formidable at home, winning four of their five games and only losing to arguably the best team in Ecuador Emelec.

I am going with the home side to cover the spread in this game, they are at home, they have the slightly better form and they are facing a River Plate side going through a bit if a slump in form.
