Picks for 5/9/23
10:00 PM EST
Nuggets -6 over Suns (win)
Phoenix did a great job tying up the series at home, but they will likely get blown out on the road tonight. Chris Paul is out again, so Durant and Booker must do all the work, as the Phoenix role players have been weak in this series. Denver has been unstoppable at home this season, as it plays a massive factor in tonight’s game. The Suns are understaffed and won’t be able to win, just like in games 1 and 2. Nikola Jocik will be too much for Phoenix to handle. Take the Nuggets.
7:40 PM EST
Brewers +110 over Dodgers (loss)
Noah Syndergaard is the better pitcher, but you could tell this season as he is having a down year. It’s shocking, but the Dodgers have the worst batting average in all of baseball against left-handed pitching. Look for Milwaukee to take advantage of the Dodgers’ lack of offense against LA and win the game at home. Take the Brewers.
