At 9:40 pm, our selection is on the Los Angeles Dodgers over the Arizona Diamondbacks.  Pitching match-ups don't get much more one-sided than this, as Cy Young winner, Trevor Bauer, will face Caleb Smith.  It's true that Bauer had his worst start since September 2019 six days ago when the Rangers crushed the Dodgers, 12-1.  But I fully expect Bauer to bounce back tonight.  He has a perfect 4-0 record, with a 1.99 ERA in division games this season, while Smith has a 5.19 ERA on the season (and a 9.00 ERA in division games).  Throw in the facts that Arizona has dropped 14 straight games, and has also given up 4+ runs in 14 of its last 15 games, and you have all the ammunition to pull the trigger on the Dodgers tonight (given that Bauer's teams have won 10 straight when they've scored 4+ runs with him on the mound).  Take Los Angeles.

At 10 pm, our selection is on the Utah Jazz over the Los Angeles Clippers.  This series is emblematic of the injury woes that have been front-and-center for the NBA this Playoffs season.  Los Angeles will be without Kawhi Leonard for the remainder of this series, while Utah has been playing without Mike Conley, but with a hobbled Donovan Mitchell (both Conley and Mitchell are officially listed as 'questionable' for this game).  We'll take Utah to bounce back off its Game 5 loss, as it is 34-14 ATS when playing with revenge, if it was off a SU/ATS home loss.  And road favorites have cashed 73% off back to back playoff losses since 2004.  Take Utah.  Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.

At 7:35 pm, our selection is on the Philadelphia 76ers and Atlanta Hawks to go 'under' the total.  The 76ers now face elimination after back to back upset losses to the Hawks.  But teams tend to go 'under' after back to back upset playoff defeats, as they've gone 'under' in 52 of 82 games.  And the Sixers have gone 'under' in 27 of 41 road games when installed as a favorite.  Take the 'under.'

At 7:35 pm, our selection is on the Philadelphia 76ers minus the points over Atlanta.  Philadelphia has had a great season, as it won 55 regular season games.  But if it doesn't win its next two games, it will be on the golf course next week.  We'll lay the small number on the road tonight, as NBA teams with a win percentage greater than .600, off back to back upset losses, have cashed 64.4% since 1991 when playing away from home, and not laying more than 4 points.  Take Philly.

At 10:10 pm, our selection is on the Tampa Bay Rays over the Seattle Mariners.  RHP Michael Wacha broke into the Major Leagues with St. Louis at the tender age of 21 back in 2013.  Wacha spent each of the next seven seasons with the Cards before being granted free agency in 2019 and signing with the Mets for the pandemic-shortened 2020 season.  He signed with Tampa before this season and Wacha has been able to contribute to the first place Rays' success as both a starter and reliever so far.  He will get his eighth start of the season tonight and it comes in a pitcher-friendly park which should suit Wacha well.  Wacha's teams are 4-0 in his last four starts vs. AL West teams.  Meanwhile, the M's will go with Japanese southpaw Yusei Kikuchi, who has had a pretty successful season so far with a 3.67 ERA and 1.05 WHIP in 12 starts.  But despite solid numbers of late, Seattle is just 8-16 (-10 games on the moneyline) in Kikuchi's last 24 home starts as well as 10-23 (-14 games on the moneyline) in his last 33 night starts.  Take the Rays.  As always, good luck...Al McMordie

At 8:40 pm, our selection is on the Milwaukee Brewers over the Colorado Rockies.  The National League Central is probably the most entertaining Division in all of the Major Leagues.  The non-play of the St. Louis Cardinals has opened things up in the Division and right now it looks like any one of four teams can wear the crown come September (all except Pittsburgh, which is already out of it).  Milwaukee's success is due to its "big three" starters of Brandon Woodruff, Freddy Peralta, and Corbin Burnes.  Those three just might be the best 1-2-3 top of the rotation in all of baseball right now (and the three that nobody wants to face in a short playoff series).  It will be RH Burnes tonight in arguably the toughest place for starters in the League.  But if there's anyone who can tame Coors Field, it just might be Burnes, who has a 2.27 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 14.5 strikeout rate in 11 starts covering 63 1/3 innings.  Despite their loss last night, the Brewers are 7-2 in their last nine road games vs. teams with a losing record.  Take Milwaukee.

At 8:05 pm, our selection is on the Vegas Golden Knights over the Montreal Canadiens.  The Canadiens surprised just about everyone by beating the heavily favored Knights on Wednesday in Vegas to even this series at 1-1.  The Habs took a 2-0 lead in the first period of Game 2 and never looked back.  It was not one of Marc-Andre Fleury's best nights as he allowed three goals on 16 shots through the first two periods before settling down finally in the third period. But by then it was too late.  The good news is that the veteran net-minder almost always uses a bad performance like that as motivation for his next one, so look for Fleury to play like his old self tonight at the Bell Centre in Montreal.  And the offense should pick it up tonight as well as the Knights are 9-2 in their last 11 after scoring less than three goals in their previous game.  Finally, the Canadiens are 2-5 in their last seven coming off a one-goal road victory and 10-20 (minus 16 games on the moneyline) if they've won at least four of their previous five games.  Take the Knights.  As always, good luck...Al McMordie.
