Coach starts things off with three SportsLine plays of the day. The first is the Heat (-3) to cover against the 76ers in Game 5 (7:30 p.m. ET). "Miami is 72 percent against-the-spread against Philly this year," he says.

The second play is the Suns (-6) to cover against the Mavericks in Game 5 (10 p.m. ET). "They are 2-0 when tied in a playoff series this postseason against-the-spread," he says.

The final play of the day comes from the NHL: the Hurricanes (-140) to beat the Bruins in Game 5 (7 p.m. ET). "The home team has won all four games of this series by at least two goals," he says.

Bollman has one play, from Major League Baseball: the Braves (-130) to beat the Red Sox (7:20 p.m. ET). "Kyle Wright has finally figured it out, and he should have success against the righty-heavy Red Sox lineup," he says.

Coach then chimes in with his Cash with Coach play: Over 6.5 runs in the Astros-Twins game (7:40 p.m. ET). "My gut tells me we're going to get a 4-3 game today," he says.

Cimini's lone play comes from the Suns-Mavericks game: Over 17.5 points for Deandre Ayton. "He's going to score at will," "He [already] has this series. He just isn't getting enough touches."

Barner's play is a player prop parlay: Jimmy Butler to score 25-plus points and Tyrese Maxey to score 18-plus points (+121). "Butler has scored at least 33 points in back-to-back games," Barner says. He adds, "[Maxey] has been great all series. He has scored at least 18 points in all four games."

Hartstein closes out the show with a baseball play: Over 8 runs (-125) in the Brewers-Reds game (6:40 p.m. ET). "The Brewers have gone Over six of their last seven," he says. "The Reds have gone Over in 12 of their last 13."
