Dallas 123 @ Phoenix 90 | 05/16 | 12:00 AM UTC

Phoenix -6

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The home team has won and covered all six games so far, and it's a trend I’m backing for Game 7. The Suns played their absolute worst in Game 6, with 22 turnovers, only three steals and two blocked shots. That is why I like them in this spot. They were embarrassed and had to stew over it for two days. For this money game, we’ll get the complete Suns package, which includes Chris Paul showing up. The Suns will play angry and with a purpose. I don’t expect the game to be close. Suns to cover.

Memphis 96 @ Golden St. 110 | 05/14 | 2:00 AM UTC

Memphis +8

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Grizzlies have covered five of their last six games, and this is a big number they’re going to cover as well. A moneyline play might also be in order. A Grizzlies team without Ja Morant has no egos and is all about attacking and working as one, which is why they’ve gone 21-6 without him. Tonight, Memphis has to beat the crowd, the refs and a proud Golden State squad that laid down and got beat by 39 in Game 5. Memphis should have won Game 4 in San Francisco, and I look for something similar on Friday. I took the points with the Grizzlies.

Cincinnati 4 @ Pittsburgh 0 | 05/12 | 10:35 PM UTC

OVER 8

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Pirates just took two of three from the Dodgers, scoring five runs in each of the two wins, which is double the amount the Dodgers allow per game. Their bullpen did an amazing job on one of the best lineups in MLB. But five of their last seven games have gone Over, including all three at Cincinnati last week. The Reds have gone Over in 10 straight. The wind is blowing in, and both starters had good outings against each other last week but the Pittsburgh bullpen caved. Back the Over again.

Phoenix 86 @ Dallas 113 | 05/13 | 1:30 AM UTC

Dallas +2

WIN

ANALYSIS: The home team is holding serve and has covered all five games. The road team has looked like a shadow of its self and has also been hampered by officials feeling the emotions of the home crowd. Chris Paul has been M.I.A. the last three games, and Luka Doncic has turned into a chucker as if he's trying to win a scoring title at the end of the regular season. But the rest of the Mavericks will show up tonight and play well regardless of what Doncic does. The Suns had the best road record in the regular season but are 2-3 on the road in the playoffs. I took the Mavericks with the points.

Golden St. 95 @ Memphis 134 | 05/12 | 1:30 AM UTC

Memphis +4

WIN

ANALYSIS: The Grizzlies went 20-6 without Ja Morant this season, and three of the losses were in meaningless late-season games after clinching. They had the Warriors on the ropes in Game 4 in San Francisco with a tenacious defensive effort that gave the Warriors trouble. They know they can do it again Game 4 came down to Golden State getting more calls and 11 more free throws made. The Warriors are1-5 ATS in their last six games. Take the points with Memphis.
