The Coach is joined by proven sports betting experts Mike McClure, Justin Perri and Larry Hartstein on the Early Edge podcast, powered by SportsLine. Get your best plays for MLB, the NBA playoffs and MMA for Thursday, June 10  

Larry opens with a look at trends in the second round of the playoffs and how they have been applying to home teams. He has his eye on Khris Middleton props, as he shoots much better at home. Larry also provides an in-depth update on the status of Mike Conley. 

The Coach delivers the SportsLine Plays of the Day from the site models and experts. He leads with a play from the newest and hottest addition to the team. "Mad Max" is taking the up-and-down Luis Castillo to go Under 5,5 strikeouts in Brewers-Reds at 12:35 p.m. ET. The Coach shares an MMA parlay from Ian Parker, who recommends Brendan Loughnane, Clay Collard and Bubba Jenkins in PFL 4 at 7 p.m. ET.

Mike's favorite MLB play of the day is the Braves and Phillies Over 7.5 runs at 7 p.m. ET. He says the home plate umpire's track record and the advanced numbers of Ian Anderson back the selection up. Atlanta is also a top team in terms of isolated power and drawing walks. 

Justin is on the Giants +150 over the Nationals at 7:05 p.m. ET. Even though Max Scherzer is starting, once San Francisco gets into the Washington bullpen the game will turn in favor of the Giants. He does acknowledge that the Nationals may be a good play for the first five innings. Justin is also on the Marlins -1.5 over the Rockies at 7:10 p.m. ET. "We have Trevor Rogers today for the Marlins, and there is a big price tag on his head. I think it is for good reasons," he says. "The Rockies aren't good away from home. But today you get them coming off a win and it's probably not going to be the best chance for them."

The number should be higher in Royals-A's at 9:40 p.m. ET, Larry says, and he is all in on Oakland at -145. He is also backing Zack Wheeler Over 7.5 strikeouts, as the Phillies starter is even better at home and in day games.
