Rotation #509
Heat +7.5 over Celtics (win)
The Heat were up 3-0 in the series and allowed Boston to tie it. All the pressure is on Miami, except it’s not. The Heat are an eight-seed and not expected to be here. The pressure is on the home team Celtics. There is no doubt Boston is the better team, but Jimmy Butler is the best player on the court and will lay it all out on the line. We should get a finish like the one we saw in Game Six. Miami has made so many double-digit comebacks in the fourth quarter of the playoffs that they have ice in their veins come closing time. Take the Heat.

Rotation #970
Cubs +110 over Rays (win)
There is no doubt the Rays are the better team. Chicago has the worst record in the National League and is just about even money today. The reason is Chicago pitcher Marcus Stroman. Stroman is diminutive in size for a big-league pitcher, but he is as consistent this season. Taj Bradley is a young pitcher for the Rays and has yet to prove himself. I like Chicago at home today. Take the Cubs.
