Thursday August 20th VIP Picks

Giants vs Angels

9:00 PM EST
Rotation #718
Lakers -6.5 over Blazers (win)
The Lakers were stunned in game 1.  This team seems to have their head in a different place and not focused on basketball. I will say they are a much better basketball team and this is where experience really helps.  Portland is short-handed tonight and they need to hope CJ McCollum’s back doesn’t act up.  I believe the Lakers will play better three point defense and eventually run away with game 2.  Take the Lakers.

9:45 PM EST
Rotation #924
Giants -120 over Angels (win)
The Giants have the slight edge here as they actually hit left handed pitching better than right handers.  Jose Suarez gets the start for the Angels.  Last year he was rocked and it doesn’t help that he has yet to pitch this year.  Look for San Francisco to hit the ball well right out of the gates.  Take the Giants.
