Bucks vs Sixers

3:30 PM EST
Rotation # 504
Bucks -7.5 over Sixers (win)
The Sixers are again without Ben Simmons who is a defender that really is missed in a game like this.  Milwaukee dominated the game the other night and then took their foot off the gas in the 4th quarter to almost allow the 76ers to cover the spread.  I think the Bucks come right out again and will take a big lead, but this time won’t give it back up in the final frame.  This team is healthier and has the defense to keep Embiid in check.  Take the Bucks.

1:10 PM EST
Rotation # 915-916
Mariners/Red Sox Over 9 runs (win)
This has been a high scoring series because of late runs.  The Boston bullpen has been a little shaky and it won’t get easier as it will be a warm day with the wind blowing out.  Boston has the pitching edge and I do expect them to get on the board early and often this afternoon.  Chris Flexen has not been a very good MLB pitcher.  I think this is the type of game Boston can get to 9 all by themselves.  Take the Over.
