Coach starts things off with three SportsLine plays of the day. The first is the Bucks (+5.5) to cover against the Celtics in Game 5 (7 p.m. ET). "We think the Bucks, 6-1 against-the-spread in their last seven when tied in a playoff series, will show up tonight," he says.

The second play is the Warriors (-4) to cover against the Grizzlies in Game 5 (9:30 p.m. ET). "Memphis is done," he says. "Their heartbeat is done."

The final play of the day comes from the NHL: the Rangers (-135) to beat the Penguins in Game 5 (7 p.m. ET). "It is do-or-die time," he says. "It is gut-check time for the Rangers."

McClure has one play, from Major League Baseball: Yankees Team Total Over 3.5 runs (12:35 p.m. ET). "[Toronto's] Jose Berrios: 3.78 actual weighted on base average so far," he says. "That's not good."

Wetzel goes to the WNBA for his two picks: Liberty (+4.5) to cover against the Sky and Over 166.5 total points in that game (8 p.m. ET). "[The Liberty's] offense already looks great," he says.

Coach then chimes in with his Cash with Coach play: Over 7.5 runs in the Phillies-Mariners game (3:40 p.m. ET). "You got one pitcher, for the Phillies, who hasn't pitched since April 25," he says. "Then you got Logan Gilbert for the Mariners, who gave up four runs in his last outing."

Hartstein closes out the show with a baseball play: the Yankees (-144) to beat the Blue Jays. "This team has won 14 out of 16," he says. "They are coming off a very dramatic win. They have a tremendous pitching edge today."
