Coach starts things off with the SportsLine play of the day, courtesy of SportsLine soccer expert Brandt Sutton: Over 2.5 goals in the LAFC-FC Dallas match (10:30 p.m. ET). "LAFC boasts the No. 1 offense in the MLS," Coach says.

McClure has one play, from MLB: Rangers Team Total to go Over 4.5 runs (-105) against the Kansas City Royals (2:10 p.m. ET). "I want to pick on [Royals starter] Zack Greinke," he says. "He has been one of the three most lucky pitchers in Major League Baseball so far this season."

Coach, who is 22-7-1 with his last 30 picks, chimes in with his Cash With Coach play: the Astros (-140) to beat the Mets (1:10 p.m. ET). "[Astros ace] Justin Verlander: an ERA just north of 2.00 on the road," he says. "He's a great away pitcher."

Wetzel's play comes from the WNBA: the Mercury (-6.5) to cover against the Fever (10 p.m. ET). "I like the Mercury to keep it rolling against the Fever, win by nine, maybe double digits again, and move to 3-0 without Tina Charles," he says.

The final three plays come from Jon (Buckets) Eimer, who could not appear in person: New York City FC Team Total Over 1.5 (-115) against Cincinnati (7:30 p.m. ET), Philadelphia Union Draw No Bet (+105) against Chicago (8 p.m. ET) and Both Teams To Score: Yes (-155) in the LA Galaxy-Minnesota United match (10:30 p.m. ET).
