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

Denver +3.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Suns have won six straight playoff games, including all three against Denver. Phoenix came out with a lot of energy after watching the Nuggets' big man receive his MVP trophy. Visiting teams have struggled when playing the second of back-to-back games at Pepsi Center. I think the Nuggets win outright with a much more aggressive game plan!

+190 3-1 IN LAST 4 DEN ATS PICKS

Houston 2 @ Minnesota 5 | 06/12 | 11:15 PM UTC

Minnesota +101

WIN

ANALYSIS: The Twins are now a home underdog after a lot of money has been bet on the Astros. Minnesota starter Jose Berrios has been excellent off a team loss in his career. He's won five starts in a row and held the Astros to two earned runs in a playoff game last year. The Astros' Luis Garcia has been great, but I like the Twins in this spot. Take the home underdog.

+383 5-1 IN LAST 6 MLB ML PICKS

L.A. Clippers 111 @ Utah 117 | 06/11 | 2:00 AM UTC

L.A. Clippers +3

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Clippers blew a 60-47 halftime lead in Game 1. They should make the necessary adjustments after some film study. The big two (Paul George and Kawhi Leonard) shot 13-for-36 from the field and should be better in this game. The Clippers are 6-1 SU after a loss of four points or fewer. I like the Clippers in this spot.

L.A. Clippers 109 @ Utah 112 | 06/09 | 2:00 AM UTC

Utah -3

PUSH

ANALYSIS: The Clippers just played a seven-game series against a Dallas team that doesn't play defense. They've had only one day of rest and will be playing at high altitude against a well-rested Jazz club that is very good on defense. Los Angeles seems to play better when there is urgency. Its big two (Kawhi Leonard and Paul George) played heavy minutes against the Mavericks in Games 6 and 7. I like Utah in this spot.

Tampa Bay 2 @ Carolina | 06/08 | 10:30 PM UTC

Carolina +105

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Lightning scored three power-play goals in Saturday's victory and have scored five PP goals in their past two games. Carolina has been excellent at home after allowing three or more PP goals. Close-out games are tough on the road. I look for the Hurricanes to extend this series with a big win Tuesday.
