The 76ers shot 7 of 31 from deep in Game 4, and Joel Embiid committed eight turnovers. Philly still won on the road. Lay it as the Sixers close it out in style.

With both clubs hitting Overs in 13 out of the past 18 games, oddsmakers have no choice than to bump this total. Cole Hamels and Andrew Triggs have both pitched gems in their last two starts, giving up only five runs combined in 19 innings. What most public bettors don?t notice is home-plate umpire Victor Carapazza having a lifetime Over record of 120-90. His tight strike zone has helped Overs cash and, with two solid pitchers on the mound, I can?t see this total reaching double digits

This is a perfect time to fade this White Sox team after their strong performance Monday. Recency bias is driving this line up, giving the Mariners a reasonable price. Marco Gonzales has electric stuff and shut down the Astros a week ago. He will have a much easier time Tuesday against this underwhelming White Sox lineup. Chalk is the play here.
Giants lefty Ty Blach is flying under the radar and has a record that doesn?t do him justice. He is the definition of reliable, and has put together a few consistent starts, giving up a modest six runs in his last 17 innings. Giving bettors a small edge as well is home plate umpire Angel Hernandez, owning a lifetime home record of 232-196. Let?s fade the public and grab this home underdog Tuesday in an optimal spot against a banged-up Nationals squad.
The pace of the Miami Heat and 76ers series has been a constant up-tempo battle with a high volume of free throws. This has resulted in two games flying Over and two other just missing. The intensity should be high in this elimination game, which should slow the scoring a tad. The Under against this adjusted number provides value Tuesday.
