Picks for 5/2/23

Rotation #518
Knicks -6 over Heat  (push)
The Knicks are desperate to avoid going down 0-2 and then traveling to Miami. The Heat are not a great team outside of Jimmy Butler. Miami was dead last in points per game in the regular season, they don’t share the ball well, and they could be a better rebounding team. Jimmy Butler rolled his ankle last game. I don’t think he will miss the game, but he won’t be as good on the glass, and I don’t think he has a 40-point game tonight. New York is the better team and has a massive edge in the rebounding department. Look for Julius Randle to take over the game, as MSG will be as loud as ever. Look for New York to even the series. Take the Knicks.

Rotation #917
Orioles -1.5 over Royals -105 (win)
The Royals are a terrible baseball team with the worst average in MLB against right-handed pitching. Tyler Wells has a sound ERA this year and should take advantage of a Royals team that doesn’t hit well and often strikes out. Baltimore hits left-handers well and should take advantage of Ryan Yarbrough, who strikes out less than four batters per game. Look for the Orioles to win by a decent size margin. We will take the run line tonight. Take the Orioles -1.5 runs.
