Jonathan Coachman gathers top sports betting experts Mike McClure and Larry Hartstein on the Early Edge podcast, powered by SportsLine. The guys deliver their winning picks for MLB, the NBA and NHL for Wednesday, April 7.
Mike begins with a highly detailed rundown of NBA injuries that must be carefully absorbed. He covers many teams, including the Pacers, Wizards, Magic, Pelicans and more. The amount of OKC players on the report is once again astounding. He also has updates on major performers such as Kevin Durant, Ja Morant, John Wall, Kristaps Porzingis and others.
The Coach supplies a trio of SportsLine Picks of the Day. He is on the Hawks -3 over the Grizzlies at 8 p.m. ET and the Suns +2 over the Jazz at 10 p.m. ET. In the NHL, the Coach is backing the Kings -120 over the Coyotes at 10 p.m. ET.
Mike opens the MLB portion of the show by predicting another loss for Oakland, taking the Dodgers -1.5 over the A's at 3:37 p.m. ET. He believes Jesus Luzardo will continue to have problems with the long ball. Mike also recommends the Diamondbacks +101 over the Rockies at 8:40 p.m. ET. He says Madison Bumgarner gives Arizona a unique advantage in the Coors Field environment.
In the finale of a three-game set between the Mets and Phillies, Larry is taking Philadelphia at -153 over New York. "Aaron Nola was dominant on Opening Day. He really made just one bad pitch and had six strikeouts and no walks," he says. "David Peterson makes his first start for the Mets, and he was kind of shaky in the spring. He faced the Phillies one time last season and it did not go well."
