    Analysis:

    Tonight, I’ll back the Rangers to end the New York Mets seven game winning streak. Texas comes in with a five game losing streak but had the Mets on the ropes yesterday with a 6-2 lead. For the New York Mets their production of thirty two runs over their last three games is unsustainable. Take the Rangers as Andrew Heaney gets his second home win of the season.

    Analysis:

    Gerrit Cole will make his season debut for the New York Yankees. Baltimore only produced two runs yesterday, but against Cole in New York last year they scored five runs. This included home runs from both Cedric Mullins and Gunnar Henderson. Additionally, Cade Povich struggled in his lone road debut with four walks, and five runs allowed to Toronto. Take the over.

    Analysis:

    The Cleveland Guardians have dropped four out of their last five games, including three straight overall. Look for that to end today as they still have single digit losses at home with a 21-9 record. Additionally, Seattle has won each of Bryan Woo’s six starts this season. Look for a regression spot as Cleveland delivers to end their losing streak.

    Analysis:

    Hunter Greene of the Cincinnati Reds is making his fourth straight start today against a divisional opponent. That’s a tough task against a Pirates team that has won six of Mitch Keller’s last seven starts. The work load for Greene is also a concern as he has pitched 107 pitches over his last six starts. Take the Pirates to win the series over the Reds.

    Analysis:

    The Milwaukee Brewers suffered what many teams do traveling Sunday into a road series on Monday, and fell 5-3 to the LA Angels. Tuesday, expect a big regroup spot at the plate as the Brewers get to see struggling starter Griffin Canning. Canning is winless in three starts in the month of June, and has just one win over his last nine starts. Take the Brewers to get to Canning and the Angels bullpen.

    Analysis:

    Daniel Gafford has seen a reduction of minutes with Dereck Lively’s play at a high level. Still, with his limited minutes Gafford remains highly productive. He has cleared 6.5 points in three of the four matchups, and is averaging 76.5 percent from the field. That mark is three percent higher than his regular season NBA best 73.5 percent. Take Gafford’s over.

    Analysis:

    With the Celtics being blown out in game four, it could be a blessing in disguise for aging veteran Al Horford. Horford took a playoff low one attempt in game four, and has went under his points prop in three straight Finals games. Yet, there are looks to be had on the perimeter for the non star Celtics players. In the prior two rounds Horford was averaging close to ten attempts. Look for a series high in attempts tonight, and for Horford to clear his points prop.

    Analysis:

    The San Diego Padres through the first two road games against the Mets have scored just two total runs. In fact over the Padres last five road games they have scored two runs or less in all. Look for the Padres to continue to be limited, and for Dylan Cease to have his fourth straight quality start. Take the under.

    Analysis:

    The Miami Marlins are looking to bounce back from a shutout loss yesterday to the Washington Nationals. They had a threat late with bases loaded but Tim Anderson was not able to deliver. Sunday, their fortune should be much better as the Marlins have won three of Jesus Luzardo’s last four starts. Take the Marlins as the slight underdog.

    Analysis:

    Friday, the Seattle Mariners won a close game one over their division rivals in the Texas Rangers 3-2. Saturday, may be another low scoring game as Nathan Eovaldi and George Kirby are coming off strong seven inning performances their last starts. The outing was Eovaldi’s first heavy work load since May 2nd, and may be a factor today. Take Seattle as the Rangers come down to Earth off taking two of three against the Dodgers.

    Look for the Tampa Bay Rays to bounce back from yesterday’s series opening loss to the Atlanta Braves. They will see Charlie Morton on the mound today who has not had a win since May 10th. On the other side Ryan Pepiot has boosted his strikeouts in four straight starts. Look for his command and strikeout ability to be a key factor in the Rays getting a road win today. Take Tampa

    Analysis:

    In first halves Derrick White has been quiet in terms of scoring. Most of his production has come in the second half where he has put in double digit points in consecutive games. With that style of play leaves room for White to elevate or remain consistent in his rebounds and assists categories. He cleared this for the first time in game three with nine total. I expect a double digit number here in game four. Take his over.

    Analysis:

    Dallas finds themselves on the verge of being swept tonight against the Celtics. It’s so tough to close out a team on their home court. For Dallas they need to avoid the third quarter offensive woes that have plagued them in consecutive games. The push has been there as in two straight fourth quarters they have mounted comebacks from a double digit deficit. This is their clean game tonight and an over correction in the markets on the spread. Take Dallas.

    Analysis:

    The total has went 3-0 to the under in the NBA Finals. Yet, for the first time in this series we saw both Kyrie Irving and Jayson Tatum go off in a big way, as they both scored above thirty points. Additionally, this is the first game in the series with a standard one day of rest in between games. Back to their normal playoff routines look for the offense on both sides to flow much better. Take the over.
