Coach starts things off with two SportsLine plays of the day. The first is the Lightning (-105) to beat the Avalanche in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals (8 p.m. ET). "Home team wins in the Stanley Cup playoffs," he says. "That's just the way it goes."

The second play also comes from Game 4: Lightning Team Total Over 2.5 goals (-160).

McClure has one play, from MLB: Blue Jays Team Total to go Over 4.5 runs (-110) against the White Sox (2:10 p.m. ET). "This game is priced as if [Chicago's Lucas Giolito] is still an elite starting pitcher, and what he has shown us he definitely is not," he says.

Cimini also has one play: Over 5.5 strikeouts (-145) for Marlins pitcher Pablo Lopez against the Rockies (6:40 p.m. ET). "I like two things here: Lopez' history versus the Rockies, and he is going to be motivated," he says.

Coach, who has gone 8-1 the last two days, has two Cash With Coach plays. The first is the Red Sox (-130) to beat the Tigers (7:10 p.m. ET). "I could not even believe that this number was this short at -130," he says.

His second play is Over 7.5 runs (-118) in the Rockies-Marlins game. "A very conducive pitching matchup for a lot of runs to be scored," he says.

Hartstein closes out the show with one play: the Blue Jays (+0.5) to cover in the first five innings (-134) against the White Sox. "Three of [Giolito's] last four starts he has been shelled, including one by the Blue Jays where they got six earned runs and eight hits in 4 2/3 innings," he says.
