Ottawa 1 @ Calgary 6 | 05/10 | 12:00 AM UTC

Calgary -185

WIN

ANALYSIS: I don't have a ton of faith in the Flames, and Ottawa is playing much better of the two teams right now. However, the Sens are also in the second of a back-to-back and have been eliminated from playoff contention. A few guys are out injured. Calgary technically is still in playoff contention, although it won't make it. The Flames are well-rested, last taking the ice Wednesday.

Chicago 108 @ Detroit 96 | 05/10 | 12:00 AM UTC

UNDER 219

WIN

ANALYSIS: While a long shot to make the play-in tournament, Chicago still is fighting hard to try to get there. As such, the Bulls do not want to let Sunday's game turn into a high-scoring shootout. Chicago has kept alive its hopes by posting back-to-back victories, including a 121-99 triumph over Boston on Friday. The Bulls are 0-7-1 OU as favorites following a home win. Chicago should feel confident against Detroit, having defeated the Pistons in six straight meetings. The Bulls are 0-11 OU as favorites when they've won at least three straight matchups with this team.

Philadelphia 1 @ Atlanta 6 | 05/09 | 11:08 PM UTC

Atlanta +1.5

WIN

ANALYSIS: One can certainly understand why the Phillies are favored behind ace Aaron Nola (3-1, 2.89), who is 11-6 with a 3.03 ERA in 21 career starts against the Braves. That said, Nola hasn't been as good in his career at Truist Park (2-4, 3.97) and Braves starter Huascar Ynoa (3-1, 2.36) has been fantastic. Dude can hit, too, homering in each of his past two games. The Braves will have MVP candidate Ronald Acuna Jr. in the lineup, too. It was thought he would miss a game or two after being hit on the hand by a pitch Saturday. Atlanta at -170 on the runline it is.

Minnesota 128 @ Orlando 96 | 05/09 | 11:00 PM UTC

Minnesota -7.5

WIN

ANALYSIS: After winning four consecutive games, the Timberwolves have dropped their last three. It has not been due to a lack of effort. Two of the losses were by four points, and their latest setback against Miami featured the return of Tyler Herro. On Sunday, Minnesota should have the advantage against an Orlando team that is limited in terms of depth. Play the Timberwolves.

Colorado @ St. Louis 2 | 05/09 | 6:15 PM UTC

St. Louis -140

WIN

ANALYSIS: The Rockies are 2-13 on the road and send German Marquez to the mound at Busch Stadium. Marquez has walked 21 batters in 33.1 innings overall, and he has a 10.45 ERA in day games. Look for St. Louis to improve to a stunning 41-12 in its last 53 home games versus Colorado.

Toronto 4 @ Houston 7 | 05/09 | 6:10 PM UTC

Houston -147

WIN

ANALYSIS: Houston lives up to the challenge of hosting a team with a better record. The Astros are 19-0 SU at home following a home game when playing a team that has a better record. The Blue Jays are 0-8 in the last game of a series as road underdogs of more than 130 when they are coming off a contest as underdogs in which they issued fewer than two walks.

Boston 4 @ Baltimore 3 | 05/09 | 5:05 PM UTC

Boston -130

WIN

ANALYSIS: Boston is 17-0 on the run line as a road favorite by more than 120 over a team that has lost at least two straight and has fewer wins on the season, and it is before the All-Star break. The Orioles are 0-8 as home underdogs after a game in which they hit at least one home run and it is not a series opener.

Oklahoma City 97 @ Golden St. 136 | 05/09 | 2:00 AM UTC

Golden St. -14

WIN

ANALYSIS: Golden State really needs this game as the difference between being the eighth and ninth seed is huge. Oklahoma City meanwhile is actively trying to avoid winning games. Look for this game to play out in almost the exact same fashion as Thursday's. Golden State is not a huge favorite nearly as often as it was a few years back but has still been quite strong when playing to big lines. The Warriors are 11-0 ATS since April 26, 2019, as an eight-plus point favorite.

Carolina 1 @ Nashville 3 | 05/09 | 12:00 AM UTC

Nashville +105

WIN

ANALYSIS: The Canes just clinched their division last night with a Lightning loss so their playoff spot is locked in. However, the Predators can clinch their playoff spot tonight with a win tonight. They are at home where they play much better, while the Canes are on the road with nothing to play for. Take the Predators at home.

Philadelphia 7 @ Atlanta 8 | 05/08 | 11:20 PM UTC

Atlanta -160

WIN

ANALYSIS: The Phillies will be attempting to win six straight games for the first time since July 2018. Starting pitcher Vince Velasquez is coming off a dominant six-inning performance against the Brewers, but I'm concerned about his durability today. Velasquez has pitched beyond six innings just three times in his last 39 starts. I expect max usage from the Phillies bullpen today. Take the Braves run line.
