Predictions NBA Tips

10:00 PM EST
Rotation # 580
Suns -4.5 over Blazers (loss)
The Suns are looking to lock up the  2 seed while the Blazers are looking to improve on their seeding.  Portland is all about offense as this team doesn’t play the best defense.  The Suns have an excellent three point defense so I believe they can disrupt the Blazers shooting from downtown.  This is a Portland team that just played a tough game last night and might not have the legs against a good Phoenix team.  Portland needs 3-4 guys to score 20+ points a night to win.  They are capable of it, but the Suns and their defense will be too much at home tonight.  Take Phoenix. 

10:10 PM EST
Rotation # 971
Indians -120 over Mariners (win)
Logan Gilbert will make his MLB Debut tonight for the Mariners.  Gilbert was a great minor league pitcher, but he has not proven himself on this stage and he has not pitched many innings in the last year because covid cancelled all of the minor league baseball last year.  Zach Plesac is starting to find his command and this Indians team to date is a little better.  Gilbert will be a star in this league, but at this price I like our chances going against the young guy in his first game at this level.  Take the Indians.
