    Analysis:

    Simplu put: The Rockies aren't even in the same stratosphere as the Dodgers. Baseball is the ultimate 'any given day' sport, but it's extremely hard for me to see a repeat performance of Wednesday's 7-6 win for Colorado -- even if the Dodgers choose to rest a few starters. Tyler Blach (4.65 ERA) will be starting for Colorado, and I expect L.A. to have success in the early innings.

    Analysis:

    All three games in this series have gone over this number, with an average of almost 16 runs scored per game. There is no reason to believe that trend will not continue on Thursday afternoon. I'm playing the over here.

    Analysis:

    The Yanks have dominated the first two games of this series and will be sending Cody Poteet to the mound on Wednesday. In three starts this season Poteet is 2-0 with a 1.72 ERA and WHIP of 0.96. Couple that with the Yankees' potent lineup, and I expect the Pinstripes to win their fourth straight game on Wednesday night.

    Analysis:

    Hockey fans have gotten spoiled during the conference finals. This series has been a true heavyweight fight with the last three games being decided in overtime. When it comes to Game 5, I'm playing the Rangers on the moneyline. New York has been outstanding at the Garden, and I like the Rangers to bounce back from a crushing Game 4 loss in Florida. Getting the Rangers for this price at home is too good to pass up.

    Analysis:

    Same pick as yesterday, time to run it back. Both starting pitchers in this game enter with an ERA north of 4.5, and Coors Field is still Coors Field. I'm playing the over again tonight.

    Analysis:

    This game is at Coors Field, which alone could be worth a couple runs. Colorado will have Ryan Feltner (5.07 ERA, 1.44 WHIP) on the mound, and Cleveland ranks third in MLB in total runs scored (269). I'm playing the over here at a very modest price.

    Analysis:

    I like the Panthers to win this one, but for basically the same price I can get the Rangers and a 1.5-goal cushion on the puck line. I see this one as a 4-3 type of win for Florida.

    Analysis:

    After two hard fought defensive battles, the Rangers and Panthers erupted for 9 goals in Game 3. While I don't see this total reaching 9 again, I do believe there will be 6+ goals scored. I'm playing the over here at a great price.

    Analysis:

    If Brown continues to make shots at his current rate, there's a strong chance he'll approach this number on points alone. I think something similar to his Game 1 stat line (26 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists) is coming tonight.

    Analysis:

    Jake Oettinger is the better goalie here, and the Stars actually outplayed Edmonton in Game 1 (in my opinion). Dallas had two shots hit the post that would have resulted in a different outcome, and it still has home ice for Game 2. I'm backing the Stars to even the series before it heads to Edmonton.

    Analysis:

    P.J. Washington played 41 minutes in Game 1, and I am expecting another heavy workload in Game 2. Minnesota's front court is outstanding, but Washington has a big enough role in Dallas' offense that he could push this number on points alone.

    Analysis:

    The Rangers have been outstanding at MSG all season, and it's hard for me to see them having a repeat performance of Game 1. Both teams in this matchup are elite on the defensive side, but I do expect to see more scoring on Friday night as well. I like the Rangers to even this series up before it heads to the Sunshine State for Game 3.

    Analysis:

    I don't love the price, but I expect Denver to win at home and move on to take on the Dallas Mavericks in the Western Conference finals. The Nuggets are coming off a historically bad performance in Game 6, and I expect a strong bounce back in Game 7 with their season on the line.

    Analysis:

    In my opinion this is the safest bet for this game. The Avs seem to have moved on from the Val Nichushkin drama, and the Stars look like the most complete team in the NHL. It's hard for me to see this game staying under 6 goals.
