Nuggets +5 over Trail Blazers (win)
The best playoff game of the first round was between these two teams the other night. Denver had a monster 22 point lead that Portland erased behind Damian Lillard. Lillard put up a Michael Jordan like performance yet his team still lost. Portland just is not getting enough help from other players for me to take seriously. Denver is the much better team and in a close out game I believe they get it done. Take the Nuggets.

Tigers/White Sox Over 8 runs (loss)
We have pretty good hitting conditions tonight. The White Sox don’t strike out a lot so I like their chances to put up a few runs against Casey Mize. Lance Lynn has been so impressive with his new found success deeper into his career, but he is pitching on limited rest and I believe the Tigers can plate some runs. This is just a really low total in hot conditions with the wind blowing out. Look for both teams to do enough to make this high scoring. Take the Over.
