WEDNESDAY Major League Baseball 3*** UNDER OF THE DAY
 
Plays rated 2 thru 5 stars


10:10pm ET / 7:10pm PT
#961-962
COLORADO ROCKIES w/ Freeland @ LOS ANGELES DODGERS w/ Meada
3*** Play on: UNDER the TOTAL

Sharp OU bettors are already aware that the ROCKIES have been one of the best UNDER teams in Major League Baseball six weeks into the season (19-27-3 O/U). That includes 6-17-2 O/U in their last 25 games. The good news for us UNDER bettors is that we get to ride their clear-cut BEST pitcher tonight in Game Three of their series versus the Dodgers. A series which has seen the UNDER go 4-0-1 in the last five meetings. In fact, BOTH of tonight’s starting pitchers are locked-in BIG TIME… so a good, old-fashioned pitchers duel is extremely likely. First off, let’s look at southpaw Kyle Freeland. The Rockies' hurler leads the team in ERA for the season at only 3.17. In fact, freehand comes into tonight’s game off 5 STRAIGHT Quality Starts in a row. Since blowing up against the Buccos on April 18th, Freeland has pitched into the 7th inning in each of his last five starts. And in those five starts, he has a plowed only ZERO… 3… 2… ZERO… and 1 earned run. So that’s a 5-start run covering 34 innings with an ERA of only 1.58, which is sparking. Its no surprise that ALL FIVE of those starts went UNDER the Total either. And the good news for UNDER bettors is that he has allowed only ONE home run in that 5-start stretch. Not only that, but check out Freeland’s numbers versus these Dodgers. He made 4 starts vs LA in the 2017 season. And ALL FOUR of those starts went UNDER the Total (0-4 O/U). Finally, the fact that he is southpaw plays right into our hands. TheDodgers have averaged 4.6 runs per game this season vs righty pitchers. But against LEFTIES, LA is scoring almost a full run-and-a-half LESS per game (only 3.3 rpg and a team batting average of .221). AND a record of 3-12-1 O/U in their last 16 games vs left-handers.
Now, let’s lookout the Dodgers side. Toeing the rubber in tonight’s Game Three will be right-hander Ken Maeda. He also comes in with an ERA under 4.00… with 62% of his eight starts going UNDER the Total. The great news for us is that Maeda is in his BEST form of the season. I saw him pitch down  here in South Florida in his most recent start against the Marlins (last Thursday on my day off). He was dominant in that start. In fact, it was his best outing of the season as he was on cruise control. He went 8 innings of SHUTOUT ball… allowed ZERO earned runs… and only TWO hits. And he had a K/BB ratio of 8 to 0 to boot. That 7-0 win was his sending straight UNDER in a row, and he has gone 1-4 O/U in his last five overall. Maeda has made five career starts vs the Rockies as well. His ERA in those career starts has been 2.48… and FOUR of those five starts went UNDER the Total (1-4 O/U). It also plays well for us that Maeda is a righty. The ROCKIES are averaging 4.7 run per game versus lefties this season. But against RIGHTIES, they are hitting only .213 for the season… and averaging a full run per game LESS on offense (only 3.6). 

We NEVER play an Over / Under in Baseball without doing the research in regards to the ‘Man in Blue’. For tonight’s Game Three, the home play Umpire will be SAM HOLBROOK. Out of 75 Major League Baseball Umpires, Holbrook comes in ranked at #72 in terms of O/U results. He is one of four guys who has gone UNDER in 78% of his games this season (2-7 O/U). He is ALSO one of only four Umpires who is averaging 6.4 or LES combined runs per game this season. His National League games have averaged only 5.0 combined runs per game. He’s also had profitable UNDER success in his career for EACH of these two teams. Holbrook has gone 1-8 O/U in his last nine LA DOGER games. And he’s gone 1-4 O/U in his last five COLORADO ROCKIE games. That works for me...

The Opening Tip In Wednesday’s NBA Eastern Conference Play-off Action from James Patrick Sports
  Cavaliers vs. Celtics 8:35 pm est. ESPN
Boston does own the better defense and it has the homecourt edge. However as much respect as Brad Stevens gets for his schemes and game plans, he hasn’t been able to solve Cleveland and James. The Brad Stevens era in Boston has paid big dividends as the Boston Celtics have officially turned the corner and become part of the Eastern Conference elite. The Stevens-Ainge brain trust is considered one of the better combos and suddenly Boston is a destination place. The team is on the up-swing and Ainge has assets. Winning cures everything, and the Celtics are built to do that. With few exceptions, their players can play more than one position, which gives Stevens a handful of lineup options, depending on the opponent. These are bountiful times in Beantown when it comes to the C's, who continue to show progress under the coach-GM combo of Brad Stevens and Danny Ainge. These are a couple of leaders that are confident that teamwork and hard work will send them even deeper into the playoffs. The defense of the “Celtic Green” rules in Beantown with points a tough commodity in Game Six Fist-Fight

Bryan Leonard's NL Game of the Month
 

955 Atlanta at Philadelphia

Gohara&Arrieta

We’ve been waiting to get a chance to bet Luiz Gohara in a starting role. This young lefty has electrifying stuff, and yet the public knows little about him. We rate him 16% higher than Jake Arrieta who continues to be on the decline. His strikeout rate is very low which means he’s becoming much more hittable than he was with the Cubs the past few years. The offenses are nearly identical while we will admit we prefer the Phillies bullpen by 14%. That said, we are getting Gohara at a cheap price and feel the wrong team is favored here.

Jim Feist's MLB Hi-Roller Platinum Play - Wednesday
  5/23 04:05 PM PT / 7:05 PM ET 

MLB   (967) LOS ANGELES ANGELS VS (968) TORONTO BLUE JAYS

Take: (967) LOS ANGELES ANGELS

Reason: The Angels lost game one of this series with the Jays on Tuesday, 3-5. Today they look to rebound by sending Tyler Skaggs to the hill. Skaggs is 3-3 with a nifty 2.88 ERA and 1.240 WHIP. Skaggs has been very consistent of late, allowing two runs or less in his last five starts. The Jays still struggling to get back to .550 as they sit at 23-25. Aaron Sanchez take the hill tonight. Sanchez is 2=4 in nine starts with a 4.47 ERA and a 1.510 WHIP. Sanchez allowed four earned runs in four innings his last start. I like the Angels tonight with Skaggs on the hill. Play LA.

  05/23 05:35 PM PT / 8:35 PM ET 

NBA   (707) CLEVELAND CAVALIERS VS (708) BOSTON CELTICS

Take: (708) BOSTON CELTICS

Reason: Boston continues to win at home as they have taken both games at the TD Arena in this series and Cleveland has taken both games on their home court. That makes today's game five even more important to Boston. Today's game is a pick, so we need little more than a win with the Celtics here, something they have done on a regular basis at home. The Celtics are 9-0 S/U and ATS at home in the playoffs. Cleveland is 3-4 S/U on the road in the playoffs. The games in Boston have been lower scoring, with the Cavs scoring less then 95 points in both games. I like the Celtics at home where they have played perfect this post season. They have excellent coaching and don't have to cover any line here. Play BOSTON.

Jim Feist's MLB Bailout Value Play - Wednesday
  05/23 07:10 PM PT / 10:10 PM ET 

MLB   (961) COLORADO ROCKIES VS (962) LOS ANGELES DODGERS

Take: (961) COLORADO ROCKIES

Reason: Colorado continues to play well at 26-23 on the season. The Rockies send Kyle Freeland to the hill. Freeland is 4-4 in his nine starts this season. Freeland has been pitching very well of late, allowing just one earned runs over his last 13 innings. In addition, he's allowed three earned runs over his last 20 innings of work. The Dodgers have struggled with both winning and injuries this year. Rich Hill and Clayton Kershaw are both on the shelf as is Hyan-Jin Ryu. SS Corey Seager is out for the season with an elbow injury. Kenta Maeda starts today with a 3-3 record and 3.98 ERS. Maeda rebounded from a five run outing to throw a 2-hitter his last time out with no earned runs. Rockies a big dog here and with Freeland on the hill I think they have some good value. I'll take Colorado.

CAJUN SPORTS MLB 8* AL Diamond Outlaw Insider
 

MLB   8* Los Angeles Angels -116 vs. Toronto Blue Jays     7:05PM

PITCHING MATCHUP: Angels LH Tyler Skaggs (3-3, 2.88 ERA) vs. Blue Jays RH Aaron Sanchez (2-4, 4.47)

ANALYSIS:   The Los Angeles Angels are north of the border playing a three-game set against the host Toronto Blue Jays. They played Game One on Tuesday night with the home team coming out on top by a score of 5 to 3. The Blue Jays look to win their first series in more than a month as they take the field on Wednesday night against the Angels. The Blue Jays had dropped four in a row and eight of their last ten prior to their Game One victory. The Angels have also been struggling suffering their eighth loss in their last eleven outings with their series opening loss. The Blue Jays will send right-hander Aaron Sanchez to the bump with a record of 2-4 SU and an ERA of 4.47 on the season. Sanchez has really struggled with control issuing multiple walks in each of his nine trips to the hill for a total of twenty-nine in fifty innings of work this season. In his last outing on Thursday he allowed four runs for the third time in his last four starts leading to another Blue Jays loss as they fell 10 to 5 to the Oakland A’s. The Angels will send left-hander Tyler Skaggs to the hill with his 3-3 SU record and his ERA of 2.88 on the season. Tyler Skaggs turned in his fifth straight solid outing on Thursday but saw his winless streak extend to four games after allowing just one run in six innings of a 7 to 1 loss versus the Cigar City Rays. Skaggs has given up just seven runs on twenty-five hits with thirty-two strikeouts in his last five trips to the hill. Skaggs won his lone start versus the Blue Jays last season allowing two earned runs in seven-plus innings of work improving his career record against the Blue Jays to 2-2 SU with an ERA of 3.86 in four career outings. Our TPR Index projects a run advantage of 1.72 runs in favor of the Angels. Our next set of metrics gives us an overall Pitchers Power Rating based on the situation. In this matrix Aaron Sanchez has an average for this game of 63 and Tyler Skaggs comes into this game with an average of 107 compared to the league average of 100. The higher the pitchers average the better they should perform in the current situation. Our next Matrix is our Starting Pitcher Matrix (SPMatrix) which is another rating matrix that helps determine which starter has the edge in the current matchup. It is more complex than our baseline Pitcher Power Rating which we have been putting in our write-ups since the start of the season. The SPMatrix has Aaron Sanchez with an average of 4.72 and Tyler Skaggs has an average of 5.29. These averages originate in our Starting Pitcher Matrix which grades on a scale of 1.00 to 12.0 and the closer to 12.0 the better the starter in this situation. Our BHOR (Bases, Hits, Outs and Runs) Matrix has a projected advantage of 1.81 runs in favor of the Angels in this contest. The SIM Matrix has the Angels with a 73.94 percent advantage against the Blue Jays on Wednesday night. The Blue Jays are 4-12 SU at home for a profit of +861 units when playing against them in this situation. Toronto is 3-10 SU as a home underdog for a profit of +606 units when playing against them in this role. Play AGAINST MLB home teams whose opponent is coming in off a loss in which they had ten or fewer hits and left three or fewer men on base. This system has a record of 501-462 SU for a profit of +5,021 units when playing against these home teams. Play AGAINST MLB home underdogs coming off a game in which they held their opponent to six or fewer hits. This system has a record of 205-300 SU producing a profit of +2,714 units playing against these home underdogs. The LA Angels are 9-1 SU their last ten as a road favorite for a profit of +790 units. Play ON MLB road favorites coming off a road game in which they had more strikeouts than hits. This system has a record of 111-71 SU (61%) for a profit of +1,213 units. Play ON MLB road favorites of -110 or more after a game in which their starter went less than eight innings and their bullpen did not allow a run. This system has a record of 401-253 SU (61.3%) for a profit of +4,114 units including a record of 108-58 SU (65.1%) for a profit of +2,268 units since the beginning of the 17 campaign. With a significant advantage on the hill as well as strong overall fundamental support we will lay the short price with the Angels in Toronto on Wednesday night.

Fargo's 10* MLB Wednesday Sweet Spot (BLOWOUT)
  This is a play on the PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES for our MLB Wednesday Sweet Spot. The National League East is shaping up to be a great race and two teams involved square off for the series finale tonight. The Braves won last night to regain their 1.5-game lead over Philadelphia and they have taken seven of the first 11 meetings this season. Atlanta improved to 18-9 on the road which is the best road record in the National League but going against that is doable as it keeps the price down. We won with the Phillies in this series opener behind a solid pitching performance from Nick Pivetta and we are expecting another similar outcome tonight. Philadelphia is 6-2 in its last eight home games and it is 17-7 on the season and that .708 winning percentage is second best in all of baseball behind the Yankees. The Phillies are 8-2 in their last 10 games after scoring two runs or less in their previous game. Jake Arietta gets the ball for Philadelphia and he has been great in his first season with the Phillies as he has a 2.82 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in eight starts. He has allowed two runs or less in seven of those games and while the lone poor outing was against the Marlins, it was on the road. His home 1.07 ERA and home 0.83 WHIP are two of the best numbers in baseball. Atlanta counters with Luiz Gohara who is making his first start of the season after logging seven innings in the bullpen. He made five starts last September and was average with a 4.91 ERA and while he did have a quality outing against the Phillies, he got the loss and the Phillies are now 14-3 in their last 17 home games against left-handed starters. 10* (956) Philadelphia Phillies

Fargo's 10* NHL Wednesday Breakaway (159-104 +$28,567 YTD)
  This is a play on the TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING for our NHL Wednesday Breakaway. The Capitals kept their season alive for at least one more game with a 3-0 shutout victory on Monday as they put an end to the Tampa Bay three-game winning streak. Washington now has to take care of business on the road where it has been great this postseason with a 7-2 record, but we expect the challenge to be too much tonight. Washington goalie Braden Holtby is coming off his best effort of the series, allowing no goals on 24 shots but now the pressure is really on. He is 2-4 in Game 7s in his career and while he has not been a liability in most of those losses, he also has not exerted his will on a game like he did in Game Six. Tampa Bay was shut out for just the second time this season and we could see an offensive show tonight with a lot of that based on one player. After blazing through the start of the playoffs with five goals in his first five games, Nikita Kucherov has scored just once in the Lightning's last seven games. He needs to get his confidence back and we think that happens here. Between the pipes is Andrei Vasilevskiy who has had a solid run in this series as he has seen as least 30 shots in all six games. After allowing 10 goals in the first two games, he has allowed only two goals in each of the last four games with a potent .945 save percentage. Tampa Bay is 17-5 revenging a loss vs opponent of two goals or more this season and it falls into a situation where we play on any team revenging a loss where it got shut out, in a game involving two teams with winning percentages between .600 and .700. This situation is 72-45 (61.5 percent) since 1996. 10* (54) Tampa Bay Lightning

Fargo's 10* NBA Wednesday Enforcer (AWESOME 19-12 NBA Run)
  This is a play on the CLEVELAND CAVALIERS for our NBA Wednesday Enforcer. The Rockets snapped the Warriors 16-game home playoff winning streak last night so can the Cavaliers do the same to the Celtics nine-game home playoff run? The short answer is yes. While the home teams have dominated this series thus far, we are in store for a closer game after the first four games being decided by 19.3 ppg which means a strong chance for a road team to break through. Much has been said about the Cavaliers defense and how it is a liability and while there is no denying that, Cleveland needs its offense to play better in Boston. According to NBA Advanced Stats, the Cavaliers offense improved by a staggering 20.5 points per 100 possessions between Games One-Two and Games Three-Four and as a team, Cleveland shot 19.3 percentage points better from beyond the arc in its two series wins than in its two losses. The defense improved as well over the last two games, but it is the offense that needs to carry this team. The momentum is clearly with Cleveland now and it has the upper hand as Boston is a team that has thrived on youth this postseason and now suddenly looks disoriented without a go-to player and opposite a more veteran squad that has found a new attitude led by LeBron James. We mentioned yesterday that the pressure was on Golden St. despite being up 2-1 in its series and the pressure is now back on the Celtics here despite being back on their home floor. Being such a young and inexperienced team, that pressure will get to them tonight. 10* (707) Cleveland Cavaliers

Rob V: 5* NBA 100% GAME 5 BANGER System + 17-1 Angle
 
The NBA Game 5 power system play is on Boston. Game 707 at 8:35 eastern. The Celtics should rebound here as we see below Game 5 teams are 56-19 if the home team won the first 4 games of a series. In the Conference finals specific these teams are 17-6 good for 73% on the blind. However when those home teams lost to the spread in both games and allowed 110 or more last out they are perfect if the opponent shot 50% or higher. Boston All time is 32-12 at home when tied 2-2. The Celtics are 5-1 when tied in a series and 6-2 off 2 exact losses this season. The Cavs have failed to cover 17 of 25 on the road vs .600 or better teams. The home team is 17-1 in the last 18 Boston games this year. Play on the Celtics.

Capitals vs Lightning Game 7 GUARANTEED Winner! (15-1 Spot)
 

#53-54  Caps/Lightning UNDER 5.5 

Its winner takes all in Game 7 of the Eastern Finals. Almost three-quarters of betting tickets are on Tampa Bay being on home ice, but that is not where the line move is at most books. The total is where the action is, as the UNDER 5.5 has been shifted 20 cents on the juice from -110 to -130. This makes perfect sense as the Lightning is 7-0 UNDER in the 7th game of a playoff series and Washington is 8-1 UNDER in the same exact scenario.

Mark Franco's NBA Eastern Conference Game Five - 12-4 Run
 


Celtics + 1 

The Cleveland Cavaliers recovered to even the Eastern Conference Finals at two games apiece and now look to solve the homecourt mastery of the Boston Celtics. Second-seeded Boston is 9-0 at TD Garden this postseason and Cleveland can end the Celtics' unbeaten mark if it can win its third straight outing.

Boston won its two home games by average of 19 points but things didn't go so smoothly in Cleveland as it lost by an average of 19.5 points. "We missed a bunch of easy opportunities," shooting guard Jaylen Brown said of the Game 4 loss. "We made some bad turnovers and things like that. But we still had opportunities to get into the game and to win." Brown is averaging 20.3 points in the series and his 25-point effort in Game 4 was his third 20-point outing in the East finals.

The Cavaliers are 3-4 on the road in the postseason.

Cavaliers are 8-17 ATS in their last 25 road games vs. a team with a winning home record. eltics are 18-6 ATS in their last 24 home games and are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game. Home team is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.

Take the Celtics at home in Game Five.

Despite posting a shutout in his last appearance, Washington’s Braden Holtby has an uninspiring .886 save percentage thru his previous 4 starts. Washington has endured its fair share of playoff failures during the past 20 seasons, and you can add tonight’s game to that list. Bet on Tampa Bay for a 5* money line wager.

He has compiled a 4.85 ERA in his last 5 starts. The Cardinals Wacha has a 4.50 ERA in his last two starts versus the Royals and they've gotten to him for 15 hits in 12 innings. The St Louis bullpen ranks in the middle of the pack in the majors but is certainly nothing special while the Kansas City bullpen is one of the worst in the majors based on ERA and batting average allowed. The Cardinals scored only one run yesterday but that was deceiving as they reached double digits in hits. This is another reason we're getting great line value here. The Cards have reached double digits in hits in 6 of their last 7 games and they had averaged 7 runs per game their last 4 games prior to yesterday's 5-1 loss. The over is a perfect 3-0 the last 3 times the Royals are off of a game where they allowed 2 runs or less. Each of the last 5 times the Cardinals have been held to 2 runs or less their next game has totaled at least 8 runs all 5 times. More of the same here. 8* OVER the total in St Louis

Rickenbach MLB *Afternoon Annihilation* Wednesday *He is on 73% MLB Run!*
  Afternoon Annihilation - Rickenbach MLB Game #953 Wednesday 8* OVER the total in Washington Nationals vs San Diego Padres @ 4:05 ET - I know the Padres are, generally speaking, a weak-hitting team. However, they are facing Erick Fedde of the Nationals here. The 25-year old right-hander has struggled every time he has pitched above the AA level of the minors. Last season in AAA ball he was hit at a .276 clip and compiled a 4.76 ERA. This season so far he was hit at a .280 clip and compiled a 4.35 ERA at the AAA level. At the MLB level Fedde made 3 starts last season and though he did well in terms of strikeouts he did go winless and compiled a 9.39 ERA while getting crushed at a .385 clip by major league hitters. In other words, the Padres should surely "get theirs" today. As for the Nationals, they'll take advantage of facing a hurler whom they've enjoyed success against. San Diego sends Tyson Ross to the mound for this one. The right-hander has been solid so far this season but he has compiled a 6.35 ERA in his 4 career starts versus the Nats and he was hit hard by them two weeks ago and that was in San Diego. Now he faces them on the road and the Nationals had averaged 6 runs per game in their last 4 games versus the Padres before getting shut down yesterday. The over is 3-0 the last 3 times Washington was held to 2 runs or less in their prior game. The Nationals are also a perfect 3-0 to the over the last 3 times they've faced Ross. San Diego's bats have been quiet so far in this series but they'll take advantage of facing a young hurler this afternoon plus the Nats bullpen has struggled this season. The Padres entered this season having averaged scoring 5 runs per game in their 7 prior games. 8* OVER the total in Washington

Rickenbach 10* MLB Contrarian Crusher Wed *4 PT* He's 16-6 / 73% MLB TOPS!*
  Contrarian Crusher - Rickenbach MLB Game #956 Wednesday 10* Top Play Philadelphia Phillies Money Line (-) vs Atlanta Braves @ 7:05 ET - In true contrarian fashion I am going against a major line move here. The very earliest numbers on this one had it priced at a -155 and it has since dropped to as low as a -115. This is offering incredible line value considering the pitching match-up. Don't get me wrong, I know Luiz Gohara has good stuff. However, he is no Jake Arrieta. Yes Arrieta struggled in his most recent start but struggles for him have been rare this season and he pitched in wet conditions in his most recent start and his entire routine was thrown off by a long rain delay before the game could get underway. Arrieta is likely to be much stronger in this start. As for Gohara he has very little MLB experience. The Phillies also have an edge here in that they face him last season. The only other team he has started twice against was the Nationals. In the first start he was successful (just like he was against the Phillies) and in the 2nd start he got rocked (just like I expect him to tonight). This season Gohara has been great out of the bullpen but he has only logged a total of 7 innings. Last season as starter he went 1-3 with a 4.91 ERA. Arrieta is undefeated in his 4 home starts with a 1.07 ERA and 0.83 WHIP. In the month of May, when off of a loss where they scored 3 runs or less, Philadelphia has gone a perfect 4-0. The Phillies are 17-7 at home this season and 13-5 when off of a loss. The Braves are 1-4 in Gohara's starts. 10* PHILADELPHIA

Rickenbach 10* NHL *THE* GAME OF THE YEAR Wednesday *UP $32,020 in 2018!*
  THE Game of the Year - Rickenbach NHL Game #53 Wednesday 10* Top Play Tampa Bay Lightning Money Line (-) vs Washington Capitals @ 8:05 ET - Yes I am going "big" here considering I do play many underdogs in money line sports. However, this situation is so strong in my opinion (with this line dropping from as high as a -155 now down to as low as a -140) as of Tuesday afternoon, that this one demands being played large. The Lightning didn't play all that poorly in Game 6 it was just that the Capitals played out of their minds and certainly a couple breaks went their way as well. Credit is absolutely due to Washington for playing very physical as the game went on and for fighting hard for the home fans and forcing this Game 7. But don't be surprised if that game leaves them spent here. Yes I know it is just "one more game" for each team but the Caps really laid it all on the ice in Game 6 whereas Tampa Bay certainly didn't seem to have that same energy or jump in their skates. Rest assured you will see that  from the Lightning Wednesday in Game 7. Lets not forget that Game 6 was Braden Holtby's first shutout of the ENTIRE season not just post-season. As for Lightning goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy, the loss was certainly not on him as he continued to play great and lets not forget that the Bolts had won 3 straight in this series before that loss. Also, Tampa Bay has won 24 of 34 when playing with revenge this season. Additionally, the Lightning have won 15 of 21 this season when they are off of a loss by a multiple goal margin. Washington is 2-4 their last 6 when they are on the road following a game they won by a margin of 3 or more goals. The Capitals notched 34 shots on goal in Game 6 and the Bolts are a fantastic 6-1 the last 7 times they've allowed their opponent 33 or more shots on goal. The Lightning respond, as usual in this type of situation, and this time it means a trip to the Stanley Cup Finals. 10* TAMPA BAY

Rickenbach 10* NBA *Game of the Week* Wednesday *He is 8-4 / 67% his L12!*
  Game of the Week - Rickenbach NBA Game #707 Wednesday 10* Top Play Cleveland Cavaliers (+) @ Boston Celtics @ 8:35 ET - The Celtics didn't just lose Game 3 in Cleveland, they got crushed. Boston followed that up with a better effort in Game 4 but they still were down by double digits nearly the entire game. The points is that the Cavaliers didn't just beat them, they destroyed them. As much as I respect the coaching of Brad Stevens, the head man for Boston can only do so much and the veteran edge the Cavs roster has is paying dividends as this series has gone on. The fact that the Cavaliers didn't just win but won huge in Cleveland means they now have all the momentum plus a ton of confidence as this series goes back to Boston for Game 5. Keep in mind, Boston has gone 9-0 on their home floor in the post-season but this game is priced this way for a reason and it is certainly no mistake. Look for the Cavs to get the upset win Wednesday and take a stranglehold on this series. LeBron James is back in the zone and what people don't realize is their hot shooting has been there since before this series started. It is not as if the Cavs are just getting "lucky" with their shots. They've been on fire dating back to the Raptors series. Yes they had one very poor shooting effort (Game 1 of this series) but in their other 6 games the past 3 weeks they've hit a combined 52.2% from the field. That is NOT one game, that is a combined average for SIX games! That is HOT shooting that Boston only wishes they could achieve. The Celtics have been held under 44.8% in 5 of their last 6 games. Big difference here and the Cavs have the best player on the floor, the momentum, the experience edge, and the confidence factor. The Cavaliers are a long-term 17-6 SU their last 23 games versus the Celtics and that includes 8-4 SU and ATS their last 12 in Boston. Yes, the Celtics took it to them in Game 1 here but the Cavs were up 7 points at the half in Game 2 on this floor. With the way the tide has turned in this series, look for LeBron and Company to again jump on the Celtics early with a big first half in Boston and, this time, they hang on for the win over a dejected Celtics team that is now (though they wouldn't admit it) doubting themselves. 10* CLEVELAND
