Rotation # 537
Celtics -9.5 over Heat
It’s amazing how the general public has won a ton of money by backing the big underdogs. Tonight the public is all over Miami, and why not, since they have cashed the ticket in almost every game this postseason? The Celtics will not have another meltdown after halftime, as it’s a must-win, as going down 0-2 in the series heading to Miami will not be favorable. Jayson Tatum will have another big night as Boston will not take their foot off the gas. Take the Celtics.

Rotation # 972
Nationals -105 over Tigers (loss)
The Nationals are towards the top of the league at hitting left-handed pitching, while the Tigers are towards the bottom at hitting right-handers. Matthew Boyd has struggled for Detroit this year, and I expect the young Jake Irvin to have a big game as he has yet to give up a home run this season. Detroit is not a power-hitting team against righties and should struggle tonight. Take the Nationals.
