Rotation #537
Celtics -7 over Hawks (win)
The Celtics had a big lead in Game Four and lost focus allowing the Hawks to upset them. Our final five selections had commanding leads on the scoreboard and blew the game. You never know what you will get in an NBA series, but I know Boston has dominated the Hawks in almost every game this year. Jayson Tatum will look to take over tonight’s game so Boston can advance to the next round. The Celtics will jump out to an early lead like they have done against Atlanta just about every time they played in the regular season and postseason. Atlanta stayed in the last game by shooting a significant percentage from the three-point line. The Hawks are not good at shooting the three, and I don’t believe lightning strikes twice. Boston has too good of a defense to allow that to happen again. Take the Celtics.

Rotation # 965
Rays -1.5 runs over White Sox +115 (win)
Tonight’s game should be a fantastic matchup between two great pitchers. The White Sox’s problem is they are awful when facing left-handed pitching. On the other side, the Rays are excellent against right-handed pitching. Tampa and Chicago are in two different classes. The Rays are a playoff team, while the White Sox hope they don’t finish in the basement. Look for Shane McClanahan to pitch another gem and for Tampa to win the game by more than two runs. Take the Rays (Run Line)
