MLB | Reds vs Pirates
Play on: Reds -157 at Draft Kings

FREE PICK - Cincinnati Reds -157
ROT#: 901

I got no problem laying a little juice on the Reds in Wednesday's series finale against the Pirates. Cincinnati won the series opener 14-1 on Monday and then lost 2-7 last night. Thing is, if that was the game Pittsburgh was going to win, that was it. 

Pirates had by far their best starter on the mound in J.T. Brubaker. He's got a 2.58 ERA and the rest of the rotation has a 5.47 ERA. Today it will be Trevor Cahill on the mound. He's 1-4 with a 6.75 ERA and 1.568 WHIP in 6 starts. He faced this Reds offense earlier in Cincinnati and gave up 7 runs on 9 hits in 4 innings. 

Reds will counter with Sonny Gray, who appears to be rounding into form. Gray has a mediocre 3.92 ERA and 1.355 WHIP, but has only made 4 starts with one clunker at St. Louis. In his last two outings at Dodgers and home against the White Sox, he's allowed just 2 ER on 6 hits with 19 K's in 12 2/3 innings of work.

If you don't love laying this big a price, I don't hate the Reds on the -1.5 (+110) run line. Give me Cincinnati -157! 

Brandon Lee can't wait to exploit the books tonight! Don't miss out on your chance to cash in a big profit with Wednesday's All-Inclusive 3-Pack (1 NBA, 2 MLB)....

This special offer gets you 3 Picks for the Low Price of $50. You will receive Lee's 50* MLB MAX UNIT TOP PLAY, plus a 40* pick in the NBA and a 40* selection on the diamond.

MLB | Cubs vs Indians
Play on: Indians -108 at linepros

Injuries. Small lay price. Home field. Fading Zach Davies. Pick a reason because all of them are valid in going against the Cubs here. 

 Chicago has lost seven of its last nine road contests. The Indians are hot having won 11 of their last 14 games.  The Cubs are extremely banged-up. They are minus Jake Marisnick, Ian Happ and Nico Hoerner. Kris Bryant and Javier Baez are each questionable. I consider those two the best players on the Cubs.  I'm not excited about Sam Hentges, who starts this game for Cleveland. The rookie has a 5.00 ERA in nine innings this season. I don't know what I'm going to get from him.  But I'd rather take a chance with Hentges than back Zach Davies, who has a 6.30 ERA and has been terrible away from Wrigley Field with a 12.54 ERA in three road starts.   (Editor's note: Stephen Nover has his NHL Underdog Game of the Year going today. Stephen is 34-15-1 on his Max Unit hockey games for 69 percent. This is one hockey play you should not miss!)

MLB | Phillies vs Nationals
Play on: Nationals +128 at Draft Kings

1* Free Sharp Play on Nationals +128

The Nationals (+128) are worth a look as a small home dog against the Phillies in Wednesday's MLB action. This is just too good a price to pass up with Washington on their home field with a quality arm like Jon Lester on the mound. Lester is no longer an elite ace, but still very good at his craft. Zack Wheeler has been great, but I could seem him a bit flat here off a complete game in his last start. Wheeler also has a mere 4.49 ERA in 20 career starts against the Nationals. Play Washington +128!

MLB | Blue Jays vs Braves
Play on: Blue Jays -107 at pinnacle

My free play is on the Tor Blue Jays at 7:20 ET. The Toronto Blue Jays are 18-16 (2 1/2 games back of Boston in the AL East) after a come-from-behind victory 5-3 on Tuesday in Atlanta. Toronto swept three games from the Braves on April 30-May 2 in Dunedin, Fl and will now look for a FIFTH straight win over Atlanta in the second contest of this three-game series. The Braves have won three straight NL East titles (were ONE win away from a World Series appearance in 2020) but Tuesday's loss drops them back under .500 (17-18) on the season. Atlanta is also 2 1/2 games back in their division, trailing the NY Mets (17-13) and Phi Phillies (19-17). Wednesday's pitching matchup features a pair of lefties, Toronto's Hyun Jin Ryu (2-2, 3.31 ERA) squaring off against Atlanta's Max Fried (1-1, 8.44 ERA). Ryu spent his first six seasons with the Dodgers, winning 14 games in three different seasons, including 2019. Ryu signed a four-year deal with Toronto prior to the 2020 season and became the team's ace, going 5-2 with a 2.69 ERA in 12 starts (Jays were 9-3). Ryu had a 2.60 ERA in his first five starts this season but was just 1-2 (team was 2-3). He then was placed on the injured list with a strained glute. He returned on May 6 at Oakland and allowed four runs on six hits, one walk and six strikeouts in five innings. However, he was the beneficiary of generous run support, as the Jays scored 10 times. Max Fried was OUTSTANDING in 2020 in which he went 7-0 with a 2.25 ERA in 11 starts (Braves were 10-1). Fried made this season's Opening Day start for the Braves and allowed two ERs in five innings, taking a no-decision in a game Atlanta lost 3-2 in 10 innings. However, his next two starts were AWFUL, as he allowed 17 hits and 12 ERs in just SIX innings. He was then placed on the IL list due to a right hamstring strain with an 11.45 ERA. He returned from the injured list on May 5 and beat the Washington Nationals 5-3 (5 IP / 4 hits / one run / 6-1 KW ratio). "That's as good as his stuff has been all year," Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said of Fried's first game back. "The breaking ball, sinker had good life, the fastball was coming out of the hand really good. It just looked more like Max." Ryu is 3-2 with a 2.62 ERA and 1.06 WHIP in eight career starts vs Atlanta (teams are 5-3), while Fried has faced Toronto just once, winning 10-1 last August (6 IP / 4 hits / 1 ER). I realize Fried looked sharp in his last outing but Ryu is a formidable opponent and Toronto has had Atlanta's 'number' here in 2021. Jays make it FIVE straight over the Braves. Good luck...Larry

NHL | Golden Knights vs Sharks
Play on: Sharks +1½ -136 at Draft Kings

While it's true they still have a shot at the division, the Knights may be a little deflated after coming up short against Colorado, a game they were quite depleted for. Though the Sharks are primarily focued on evaluating talent, they figure to want this one. Not only is it their final game of the season but Vegas has beaten them in all seven meetings. Note that four of those seven losses came by a single goal. The Sharks have seen four of their last five decided by just one goal. Vegas, meawhile, has seen five of six decided by a single goal. In what could well be another close one, consider SJ on the puck-line.

NHL | Golden Knights vs Sharks
Play on: Golden Knights -200 at Draft Kings

The NHL Comp Play for Wednesday is on the Vegas Knights at 9:00 eastern. Vegas is off a loss and have bounced back to win 4 straight in this situation. They are 8-0 vs San Jose and 5-0 after scoring 2 or less goals as well as 4-0 on Wednesdays and 8-2 in a 4th game in 6 night situation. San Jose has lost 13 of 16 and is 0-6 vs a team that scored 2 or less  while dropping 18 of 26 vs a team that allowed 5 or more goals. With the Favorite on a 16-5 in in this series we will back Vegas. Rob V- GC Sports

NHL | Wild vs Blues
Play on: UNDER 6 -117

Wednesday NHL Free play. My selection is on the 'under' between Minnesota and St. Louis at 9:05 pm et on Wednesday.

We couldn't buy an 'under' result in this matchup a couple of weeks ago as the Wild and Blues skated to three straight 'overs' in Minnesota. The scene shifts to St. Louis on Wednesday and I look for a reversal of that trend, noting that the 'under' has cashed in three of the last five meetings here in the Show-Me State. The Wild just keep rolling along offensively, having now scored four goals or more in five of their last six games overall. It's worth noting that all of those games were played on home ice though. Minnesota has been a slightly weaker offensive team on the road this season, averaging 3.0 goals per game compared to its 3.3 goals per game season scoring average. Since that three-game set in Minnesota, St. Louis has posted a 1-4 o/u record over its last five contests, allowing just 2.6 goals per game over that stretch. Note that the 'under' has gone 16-6 with the Wild coming off consecutive games totaling seven goals or more over the last three seasons, with that situation producing an average total of just 5.3 goals. The 'under' is also 11-2 with the Blues revenging a one-goal loss against an opponent this season, with an average total of just 5.4 goals in that spot. With both of these teams having all but locked up their divisional seeding (the Wild have an outside chance of surpassing the second-place Avs but it's highly unlikely), I'm anticipating a relatively 'low-event' affair on Wednesday. Take the under (8*).

Sean's 85-48 (+$2,967) NHL run continues with TWO 10* big ticket totals on Wednesday with the first getting underway EARLY at 5 pm et! Your best bet is a weekly or monthly subscription package, giving you access to ALL of Murph's winners every day!

NBA | Rockets vs Lakers
Play on: Rockets +13½ -110 at Draft Kings

Jack's Free Pick Wednesday: Houston Rockets +13.5

The Houston Rockets are 3-0 ATS in their last three games overall while going up against three of the best teams in the NBA.  They lost by 8 as 17.5-point dogs to the Bucks, by 8 as 16-point dogs to the Jazz and by 11 as 14.5-point dogs to the Blazers.  Now they are catching 13.5 points against the Los Angeles Lakers tonight.

This is a favorable spot for the Rockets, too.  They had yesterday off while the Lakers will be playing the 2nd of a back-to-back after needing overtime to beat the Knicks 101-99 last night.  Now they will be without Dennis Schroder and could be without both LeBron James and Anthony Davis, who are banged up.  It will also be the 5th game in 7 days for the Lakers.

The Rockets are 4-0 ATS in their last four road games.  The Lakers are 3-8-1 ATS in their last 12 games overall.  Los Angeles is 1-10 ATS in its last 11 games following a SU win.  The Lakers are 0-5 ATS in their last five home games vs. a team with a losing road record.  Houston is a perfect 7-0 ATS as a road underdog of 12.5 or more points this season.  Bet the Rockets Wednesday.
