Thursday April 8th VIP Picks

Celtics vs Knicks

10:00 PM EST
Rotation #572
Jazz -6 over Trailblazers (win)
The Jazz lost a tough one last night, but are in a favorable sport tonight against a Portland team that I don’t think will be able to keep up with on the defensive end to stay in this game.  Utah is a great home team and will look to bounce back from last nights game in which they put up a good rally to get back into late.  Portland is a good offensive team, but the Jazz are great on both the offense and defensive end.  The Blazers have a good record this year, but until they get better on defense won’t be a factor come playoff time.  Take Utah.

Rotation #916
Bluejays -120 over Angels (loss)
Ross Stripling was off in his season debut the other night, but he got it out of the way and should be able to pitch better tonight.  Griffin Canning will get his first start of the year and this game comes down to Stripling just being a better pitcher.  Canning has been all over the place with his control in spring training and as you know walks are good way to always get beat in this league.  Take the BlueJays.
