Matt Severance is a well-connected writer and handicapper who has worked in the industry since 2005. He believes in buying points in football to get off a push number like 3 or 7. He understands that oddsmakers don't do as much homework on lower-tier FBS games, creating betting opportunities. And he says homefield advantage is underrated in some markets and overrated in others. For Matt Severance media inquiries, contact SportsLine@CBSInteractive.com.

Phoenix 125 @ Denver 118 | 06/14 | 12:00 AM UTC

Denver +3.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: I think Denver is too good to get swept -- if it does, that could be it for Coach Michael Malone -- and Phoenix might have a bit of a letdown up 3-0. Malone is making two changes to his starting lineup as Monte Morris and Will Barton will enter the first five and Facundo Campazzo and Austin Rivers will head to the bench (where they belong honestly).

St. Louis @ Chi. Cubs 2 | 06/13 | 11:08 PM UTC

Chi. Cubs -125

WIN

ANALYSIS: ESPN Sunday night game. Zach Davies (3-3, 4.45) was somewhat of a throw in for the Cubs in trading Yu Darvish to the Padres this offseason, but he has been terrific of late with a 2.16 ERA over his past eight outings. That includes five shutout innings May 23 in St. Louis. On the flip side, the Cards' Carlos Martinez (3-6, 6.21) has allowed 18 earned runs over his last six innings across three starts.

L.A. Angels 10 @ Arizona 3 | 06/13 | 8:10 PM UTC

Arizona +1.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: No designated hitter for the Angels, which means no Shohei Ohtani in the lineup so that's an obvious plus for the Snakes. LA's Patrick Sandoval (0-2, 3.62) has gone 19 straight starts without a win, the longest streak in Angels history. In seven career Interleague games (three starts), he is 1-3 with a 5.46 ERA.
