Clippers -3 over Mavericks (win)
The Mavs have improved a lot since last season. This team healthy and it shows on the court. Dallas might just pull this off, but I refuse to believe they are the better team. The Clippers are better in a lot more areas and their veteran leadership will be hard to close out tonight. Close out games are very hard and especially hard for teams that simply don’t make the playoffs much. I believe the Clippers can force a game 7. Take the Clippers.

Marlins +105 over Pirates (loss)
To me this games comes down to two struggling teams with the advantage going to the Marlins young pitcher. Cody Poteet has been solid in his limited work while Mitch Keller has been rocked all season. Keller is giving up too many walks and hits which are leading to a lot of runs. Take the Marlins.
