$110.0
Play Type: Premium

My selection is on the 'over' between Chicago and Seattle at 10 pm et on Wednesday.

We won with the 'over' in Chicago's season-opening overtime loss to Los Angeles. Since then, the Sky have posted consecutive 'under' results. I expect a different story to unfold here as they continue their three-game road trip in Seattle on Wednesday. The Storm have been sorely missing Breanna Stewart, among others. While Stewart is unlikely to play on Wednesday (she's still in Covid protocol) they should have Epiphanny Prince back on the court. Coming off three straight losses, the Storm are desperate to get back on track here. The good news is, the pace has been there for a potential quick turn-around, noting that they've gotten off 76, 71 and 77 field goal attempts over the last three games. The shots simply haven't been falling. While Chicago is coming off consecutive wins, it hasn't exactly been playing lock-down defense in the early going this season. Its most recent opponent, the Minnesota Lynx, attempted only 59 field goals but still scored 78 points, shooting better than 49% from the field. I do think the Storm can find a way to push the pace a little more in this one, putting pressure on the Sky defense. Offensively, Chicago has been getting production from up and down its lineup. With that being said, Candace Parker has yet to really get going while Allie Quigley just made her season debut last time out and should improve on her 3-of-8, seven-point performance here. Despite having yet to get off more than 70 FG attempts in a game, Chicago has been filling up boxscores, making good on 36, 31 and 28 field goals in its first three games. Take the over (8*).

My selection is on New York over St. Louis at 7:10 pm et on Wednesday.

Max Scherzer failed to find the win column against Seattle last time out. It was no fault of his as he allowed just one earned run in seven innings, lowering his ERA to 2.66 in the process. Unfortunately the Mets bats were silent on that night, falling by a 2-1 score. Jordan Hicks, meanwhile, is just hanging on in the Cardinals starting rotation, out of necessity only. He’s yet to last more than five innings in any of his five starts this season. He has allowed multiple runs and walks in four consecutive outings. Yesterday’s double-header between these two teams went according to plan with the favored side winning both games. More of the same here. Take New York (6*).

My selection is on Carolina over New York at 7 pm et on Wednesday.

Long winning streaks aren't commonplace in the NHL Playoffs - at least not anymore. We saw evidence of that again last night as the Panthers failed to deliver a fourth straight victory, falling by a 4-1 score at home against the Lightning. Here, the Rangers will be aiming for their fourth consecutive win after rallying from a 3-1 series deficit to prevail in overtime in Game 7 against the Penguins last round. I expect them to fall short in Wednesday's series-opener. Carolina remains undefeated on home ice in these playoffs - an impressive accomplishment considering it faced a team that enjoyed plenty of road success during the regular season in the Bruins during the opening round. The Canes are now an incredible 33-12 on home ice this season, allowing a stingy 2.1 goals per game while outscoring opponents by 1.2 goals on average. They catch the Rangers in a favorable spot here, noting that New York has gone 5-14 when coming off three consecutive games scoring 3+ goals over the last two seasons, outscored by an average margin of 1.5 goals in that situation. Take Carolina (8*).

Wednesday MLB Free play. My selection is on Los Angeles over Texas at 8:05 pm et on Wednesday.

The Angels appeared to have last night's game in hand, up 4-3 entering the bottom of the eighth inning but things unravelled from there as they allowed seven runs in the eighth and went on to lose 10-5. I do look for them to salvage the finale of this series on Wednesday as they send Shohei Ohtani to the hill against Dane Dunning. This is a 'revenge game' of sorts for Ohtani as he looks to avenge his worst start of the season - a 10-5 loss here in Texas back in April. That was Ohtani's second start of the season and he's worked things out since, allowing just three earned runs on 14 hits over 24 innings since. The Angels have won four of Ohtani's five career starts against the Rangers. Dane Dunning will counter for Texas. He was on the mound for that 10-5 victory over Ohtani and the Angels in April but didn't pitch particularly well, allowing six hits and two earned runs before exiting in the fourth inning. In four career outings against the Angels, Dunning has recorded a 7.13 ERA and 1.70 WHIP. The Angels bullpen imploded late in last night's game but had previously pitched well this season, particularly on the road where it owned a 2.30 ERA and 0.92 WHIP with only one blown save. Take Los Angeles.

Sean delivered a 2-0 NBA SWEEP last night (Heat and 'over') and he's back with a 10* TOP RATED selection in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals on Wednesday as his RED HOT 23-9 NBA playoff run (incl. free) and long-term 215-171 NBA tear continues!

A.L. First Five Innings Game of the Month. My selection is on Chicago first five innings over Kansas City at 8:10 pm et on Wednesday.

The Royals got the better of the White Sox in the second half of yesterday's day-night double-header but I look for Chicago to answer back, at least early on, in Wednesday's contest. We'll play the first five innings only in this one as we're not all that interested in involving a White Sox bullpen that entered yesterday's action sporting an ERA north of eight and a WHIP approaching 1.80 over the last seven games. Lucas Giolito will get the start for Chicago on Wednesday. Covid quarantine gave him a couple of extra days off since his last outing, perhaps a good thing after he worked at least into the sixth inning in each of his last three starts. He was sharp last time out, allowing just one earned run over seven innings in a 4-1 victory over the Guardians. Zack Greinke will counter for Kansas City. He'll be making his second consecutive start on four days' rest and struggled in his most recent outing, allowing five earned runs over 4 2/3 innings in Colorado. He's been tagged for 18 hits and seven earned runs over his last two starts, covering a span of just 10 1/3 innings. This will be Chicago's second look at Greinke in less than a month after reaching him for three earned runs over six innings in a 7-3 victory on April 27th. Look for the Sox to improve on those numbers early in this game. Take Chicago first five innings (10*).

Wednesday NBA Free play. My selection is on the 'under' between Dallas and Golden State at 9 pm et on Wednesday.

The Mavericks exploded for 123 points on 46 made field goals in their Game 7 victory over the Suns on Sunday. That was far from the norm, however, noting that Dallas had been held to 40 or fewer made field goals in each of its previous nine contests. On the flip side, the Mavs have held 12 of their last 13 opponents to 87 or fewer field goal attempts. They'll look to employ a similar strategy against the Warriors explosive offense here. Golden State couldn't have been involved in much more free-flowing of a series than we saw against the Grizzlies last round. I expect a stark contrast here against Dallas. Remember, back in the opening round, Golden State got off 86 or fewer field goal attempts in all five games. Meanwhile, the Warriors have held opponents to an average of just 37-of-88 shooting here at home this season. Take the under.

Wednesday NHL Free play. My selection is on Calgary over Edmonton at 9:30 pm et on Wednesday.

The Oilers and Flames will renew acquaintances in the 'Battle of Alberta' on Wednesday night in Calgary and I expect the Flames to hold serve at the Saddledome. Calgary was dominant in its opening round series against Dallas but Stars goaltender Jake Oettinger stood on his head and ultimately helped his team push the series the distance. In the end it wasn't enough as Calgary prevailed in overtime in Game 7. Here, I don't anticipate the Flames facing another red hot goaltending performance as Oilers veteran netminder Mike Smith has been inconsistent all season, carrying over into the playoffs. The Flames check in 28-17 on home ice this season, outscoring opponents by 1.5 goals on average. They've taken six of their last nine meetings with the Oilers here in Calgary and I look for them to improve on that record here in Game 1. Take Calgary.

Eastern Conference Second Round Total of the Year. My selection is on the 'under' between New York and Carolina at 7 pm et on Wednesday.

I don't expect this series to play out anything like these two teams' high-scoring opening round series'. We inexplicably saw 7+ goals in all seven games between the Rangers and Penguins while the Canes saw six of their seven games against the Bruins total at least six goals. I expect the scoring to settle down considerably in the round two opener between these two squads on Wednesday, noting that the 'under' is 7-1 with the Rangers coming off an overtime win this season, resulting in an average total of just 4.7 goals. The 'under' is 28-16 with the Canes playing at home against division opponents over the last two seasons, leading to an average total of only 5.2 goals. The last time these two teams faced each other here in Raleigh, the Rangers skated to a low-scoring 2-0 victory back on March 30th. The 'under' checks in 6-5 in the last 11 meetings in this series. Take the under (10*).

My selection is on Golden State minus the points over Dallas at 9 pm et on Wednesday.

Credit the Mavericks for rallying back from a 3-2 series deficit to oust the Suns in seven games, delivering an incredible knockout punch on the road in Game 7 on Sunday. There's no question, Dallas has been at its best when facing adversity in these playoffs (Game 2 without Luka Doncic in round one against Utah and Game 3 after digging an 0-2 hole last round against Phoenix come to mind). Here, I'm not convinced we'll see the Mavs best punch as both teams feel their way around Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals. Golden State has the benefit of playing at home, where it has gone 37-10 this season, outscoring opponents by 10.5 points per game, and also checks in well-rested but not likely rusty following just four off days. I like the fact that the Warriors come in seeking revenge for consecutive losses against the Mavs, noting that they've gone 24-12 ATS when playing with 'double-revenge' over the last two seasons, outscoring opponents by 5.9 points on average along the way. For their part, the Mavs check in just 4-6 ATS when coming off an outright underdog road victory this season, as is the case here, and 1-3 ATS when following up consecutive wins by 15+ points. Take Golden State (10*).
