Picks for 4/18/23

Rotation #536
Suns -8 over Clippers (win)
The Clippers had a hot start in Game 1 and never looked back. Neither team is good inside the paint, but the Suns are better-shot blockers, making the Clippers shoot everything from extended range. Phoenix will grab more offensive rebounds for second-chance points, turn the Clippers over, and protect the basketball. Phoenix is a desperate team and should get a better game out of Chris Paul. Kevin Durant and Devin Booker should have big numbers again, and the Suns will even up the series heading to Los Angeles. Take Phoenix.

9:40 PM EST
Rotation #907
Braves -135 over Padres (win)
The Padres will start Benny Snell, who has struggled this year. It won’t get easier for Snell as the Braves hit left-handing, hitting well. The Padres don’t hit right-handers well. Spencer Strider is a strikeout machine averaging 15 strikes outs per game, making matters worse for San Diego. The Braves are the better team and should cash the ticket tonight. Take Atlanta.
