Braves vs Marlins

Rotation #969
A’s -110 over Diamondbacks (loss)

Both pitchers have been pretty good this year and both teams have been on a nice streak.  The A’s have been tattooing the baseball while the Diamondbacks have been making dramatic comebacks late in games the last few nights.  You just can’t bank on that always happening.  Oakland is the better team and at this price we will take them especially the way they are swinging the bat.  Take the A’s.

Rotation #755
Sixers +6 over Celtics (loss)
This is a line that would be set if the game was being played in Boston.  There is no doubt the Celtics are the better overall team and the coaching is light years better, but the gap is shrinking and on a neutral court I believe the Sixers are going to make this a series.  The Celtics will probably win it because of better 4th quarter coaching and being able to steal at least one or two games.  This is a generous line for what should be a feeling out process like game.  Take the Sixers.
