Marlins vs Nationals

4:00 PM EST
Rotation #704
Thunder +2.5 over Rockets (win)
The Rockets are a more experienced team and overall their starting five is better, but this is a team that has gone the entire way playing with a short rotation.  As the series gets deep this could be a problem because each player has to be on their best game in order to win.  The Thunder were in a spot to go down 0-3 and won a very important OT in convincing fashion.  The momentum now is with Oklahoma City.   Look for them to be fresher in the second half. Take the Thunder.

6:05 PM EST
Rotation #903
Marlins +105 over Nationals (win)

It’s the rubber game in a rare 5 game series as both teams took 2 games so far.  Both pitchers don’t have much experience.  Pablo Lopez has a better strikeout to walk ratio and has the better ERA than Austin Voth.  Lopez has given up less homeruns as well.  Take the Marlins.
