Chi. White Sox 5 @ N.Y. Yankees 0 | 05/22 | 11:08 PM UTC

N.Y. Yankees -170

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The White Sox used all their top relievers in Game 1 while the Yankees have a very deep bullpen. Tim Anderson will be back in the lineup for the White Sox but the Yankees should have success against Michael Kopech seeing him for the second time in two weeks. Luis Severino didn't face the White Sox and they struggle against righties. Take the Yankees at home to split the DH.

Chi. White Sox 5 @ N.Y. Yankees 0 | 05/22 | 11:08 PM UTC

UNDER 9

WIN

ANALYSIS: Sundays are just the worst picking MLB winners, I really don't know why. So, I'm not picking a side in Game 2 of this doubleheader but instead the total. It should be low scoring between excellent pitchers Michael Kopech and Luis Severino and neither team did much offensively in Game 1.

Golden St. 109 @ Dallas 100 | 05/23 | 1:00 AM UTC

UNDER 217.5

WIN

ANALYSIS: The Mavericks are down 0-2 in the Western Conference Finals and their stellar home defense could help them climb back into the series. They're allowing less than 94 points per game at the American Airlines Center this postseason. No total has gone over 214 at the venue so far. I like the Mavericks' odds to limit the visitors on offense after blowing a big lead on Friday.

Golden St. 109 @ Dallas 100 | 05/23 | 1:00 AM UTC

Dallas -147

LOSS

ANALYSIS: How much does home court matter? (Not much for the Celtics. Wow. Didn't see that coming.) It better be a lot for me to make this play. Honestly, I might be simply fan betting here because I want this to be competitive. Throw out Game 1 vs. Utah when Luka was out and the Mavs haven't lost at home in these playoffs.

Calgary 1 @ Edmonton 4 | 05/23 | 12:00 AM UTC

UNDER 7

WIN

ANALYSIS: Yep, well aware there have been 23 goals scored in the first two games, but it's in the Constitution that you must go Under if you see 7 goals in a playoff game. The vast, vast majority of playoff games don't see 7 goals scored these days. Look at how the Lightning are shutting down the offensively stellar Panthers. Could be eating crow by mid-second period but I'll take that chance.

Carolina 1 @ N.Y. Rangers 3 | 05/22 | 7:30 PM UTC

N.Y. Rangers -110

WIN

ANALYSIS: Carolina turned into a pumpkin -- is that even how the story goes? I have no idea. Squash? Brussels Sprouts? -- on the road in the last round. Still in utter disbelief that Rangers +1.5 didn't hit last game because of an empty-netter with two dang seconds left. This is their season. Probably can't go wrong with the Under, either, but I have an aversion to Unders below 6.0 goals for some reason.

Chi. White Sox 3 @ N.Y. Yankees 1 | 05/22 | 7:05 PM UTC

N.Y. Yankees -160

LOSS

ANALYSIS: Late to the party on this one but no Tim Anderson for the Sox and that's really all we need. Chicago is a .500 team without him over the past few years and WAY over .500 when he plays.

Chi. White Sox 3 @ N.Y. Yankees 1 | 05/22 | 7:05 PM UTC

N.Y. Yankees -160

LOSS

ANALYSIS: Tim Anderson is out for the White Sox and he makes this team go. Johnny Cueto also shouldn't have as much success against a Yankees lineup that isn't really sitting anyone. I like the Yankees at home at this number.

Seattle 4 @ Boston 8 | 05/22 | 5:35 PM UTC

Boston -129

WIN

ANALYSIS: The Red Sox have won four in a row and seven of their last nine. They are going for a four-game sweep and those are tough, but the road-weary Mariners haven't been home since May 11. They are 8-17 on the road and have lost five of their last six. Red Sox starter Nathan Eovaldi is coming off one of the worst starts of his career, but I'm calling for the bounce back against a Mariners offense that is totally punchless on the road (.220/.294/.350 with 3.32 runs per game this season). Meanwhile, Mariners starter Logan Gilbert is trending badly (5.29 ERA in his last three starts).

Minnesota 7 @ Kansas City 6 | 05/22 | 6:10 PM UTC

Kansas City -105

LOSS

ANALYSIS: Brady Singer came up and dominated in his last outing against the White Sox and I see no reason why that shouldn’t continue today. The Royals were 10-9 against the Twins last season and they won their first series against the Twins in Kansas City. Bailey Ober has been solid but he is more than capable of a blowup outing. The Twins could also be resting a couple key players, I like the Royals to avoid the sweep at home.
