Coach starts things off with two SportsLine plays of the day, both from the first game of the doubleheader between the Dodgers and Diamondbacks (3:10 p.m. ET): Los Angeles to cover the -1.5 run line  (-115) and the Dodgers first five Team Total to go Over 3.5 (+110). "The Dodgers, even though they have already clinched out West, are still playing great baseball," he says.

McClure has one MLB play from the game between the Guardians and White Sox (8:10 p.m. ET): Under 7.5 runs. "We should see this play a lot more like a playoff game and a playoff series in general," he says. "That typically leads to a little less offense, very good defense, very good pitching."

Bollman has two plays from MLB. The first is the Rays (-130) to beat the Astros, who clinched the AL West on Monday (6:40 p.m. ET). "The Astros should have all their starters out," he says.

He also likes the Rockies (+130) to beat the Giants (8:40 p.m. ET). "Kyle Freeland hasn't allowed more than one run in any of his last three starts, and he has been solid against the Giants this season," he says.

Cimini closes out the show with one play for Thursday's NFL game between the Browns and Steelers (8:15 p.m. ET): Under 32.5 yards (-110) for Cleveland receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones. "Last week he had just one target against the Jets," he says.
