LAST 20 NBA ML PICKS
12-8 IN LAST 20 NBA ML PICKS | +605
The Capitals blitzed the Lightning on Friday, racing out to an incredible 4-0 lead midway through the second period. While the Lightning fought back in the third period, slicing the four-goal deficit in half, the Caps controlled tempo and got clutch goaltending from Braden Holtby. My projections indicate this contest will be extremely tight, but there's a ton of value for the Caps on the money line that is too hard to ignore. I'll back Washington again.
22-7-1 IN LAST 30 NHL PICKS | +1635
My data sees at least 215 points hitting the board Sunday in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Cavaliers and Celtics, a scoring pace that would crush the Over against this modest NBA total. The Over is on a 16-5 run in Boston home games, while Cleveland is on a 5-1 run to the Over in the postseason.
The projection model sees the Rays taking down the Orioles in more than half of simulations for their Friday showdown, offering value on the short road underdog. Tampa Bay has won four straight starts by Jacob Faria and is on a 6-1 run in series openers. The Orioles are 3-7 in the past 10 outings by Kevin Gausman.
10-6 IN LAST 16 MLB ML PICKS | +777
My projections see at least nine runs crossing the plate Friday between the Nationals and Diamondbacks, providing a strong position on the Over against a total of 7.5. The Over has hit in five straight starts by Max Scherzer and is 6-0 when he starts Game 2 of a series. The Over also is on a 7-2 run between these clubs in Arizona.
My projections see the Orioles beating the Royals on Thursday at least 57 percent of the time, offering a massive value on the home underdog. The Orioles are 23-5 home starts by Chris Tillman against losing teams, and also 4-1 in his last five home outings overall. Jump on the plus-money payback in this one.
