Atlanta's Mike Soroka has the inside track at the Rookie of the Year award and maybe even the Cy Young. He has great command of both the four-seam and two-seam fastball, guiding him to a 5-1 record with a sparkling 1.01 ERA after 44.2 innings this season. I was amazed by his demeanor and confidence last year at age 20. Meanwhile, the Cards run out Dakota Hudson, who has been 30 cents below average in his home starts, carrying a 4.40 ERA and 5.51 FIP. The 24-year old righty is striking out 6.89 per nine innings and walking 4.21 per nine. St. Louis has lost 14 of its past 19 games. Take the Braves.

It's time for coach Mike Budenholzer and the Bucks to make some adjustments. Milwaukee still has the better team and is getting points in this elimination game. The Raptors shot just 38 percent from the field but hit 18 three-pointers, thanks to Fred VanVleet, who hit seven of them. Milwaukee has too much firepower and will make the correct adjustments to win Game 6 on Saturday.

Jose Berrios is the ace of the Twins staff and is coming off his worst performance of the season. On the road, Berrios has been 40 cents better than the average pitcher, including his last road start at Toronto where he went 7.0 scoreless innings with no walks and five strikeouts. Meanwhile, the Mariners are just 9-23 in their last 32 games and 4-12 their last 16. Starting pitcher Wade LeBlanc is a 34-year-old journeyman who is coming off the IL with a right oblique strain. Take the better team with the better pitcher laying a short price: the Twins.

Cubs starter Jon Lester has an ERA of 0.36 over his last 24.2 innings, allowing just TWO walks, and he is striking out more than a batter an inning. The Nationals lineup today will feature no one who has ever homered off Lester and has a combined wOBA of less than .300. Meanwhile, Nats starter Stephen Strasburg has allowed just 20 hits, seven walks and nine earned runs while striking out 36 over his last 26.1 innings. Last night's game was a softball game; today's game will be a pitchers' duel.

There is no doubt the Warriors are still one of the top two teams in the NBA even without Kevin Durant. However that talent margin without KD brings them back to the pack. I feel the Warriors are just two points better than the Blazers without KD, five points with him. Portland was down just six going into the fourth quarter of Game 1 and led by eight late in Game 2. Blazers fans will give their team the energy and extra boost it will take to beat Golden State in Game 3.
