Bucks -4.5 over Suns (win)
The NBA lacked star power deep into these playoffs, but we have gotten a great series and I believe Giannis Antetokounmpo becomes the face of the NBA tonight. The NBA is in need of a mature star who says and does the right things. The Greek Freak can be that guy, but also help the game internationally. The Suns are a high skilled team, but they just are not physical enough. If this team connects on a high percentage of three pointers they will force a game 7. If this team can’t hit from downtown they will get blown out. The Bucks are bigger, faster and stronger and as this series moves on the will of the Suns is close to being broken. This is almost like a high school team playing a junior high school team when it comes to grabbing rebounds. If the Suns get down there will come a point in this game the Suns will just give up. Chris Paul is a great player, but this team doesn’t have the mental toughness or the physical toughness to close. Take the Bucks.

Rangers +105 over Tigers (loss)
Both pitchers have about the same experience in the big leagues. Tarik Skubal might have a little bit more strikeout power, but this guy is a machine when it comes to giving up homeruns as he gives up 1.9 homers per 9 innings. Those numbers won’t keep you in the big leagues very long. The Tigers have been good since the all star break while the Rangers have been awful. This low line seems like Vegas is baiting people to bet the Tigers. Detroit is not great at hitting right handed pitching so I don’t think they put up many runs tonight. This game comes down to the big hits Skubal gives up. Take the Rangers.
Wednesday Picks will be posted at 4PM EST.
