Picks for 4/19/23

9:00 PM EST
Rotation #541-542
Heat/Bucks Over 220.5 (win)
The Miami Heat were on fire offensively the other night and blew out the Bucks. Giannis Antetokounmpo is out tonight, hurting Brook Lopez’s defensive presence. Lopez is a great defender but will need more help tonight. Jimmy Butler will score at will tonight, and the Heat should put up another decent point total. The Bucks have a considerable size advantage even with Giannis out. Look for Milwaukee to shoot a lot better from three-point range. The Bucks scored at will from the 2pt line as they had their best percentage performance of the year in close. If the Bucks hit their three-point shots, they would have scored 150. Miami was the lowest-scoring team in the NBA but has unleashed a new style of play in the playoffs that will be hard to deal with. Look for fireworks from both teams tonight. Take the Over.

8:10 PM EST
Rotation #969
Blue Jays -110 over Astros (loss)
Both starting pitchers have struggled so far. Jose Berrios has allowed many hits, but he averages double-digit strikeouts. Luis Garcia is allowing a lot of walks which leads to a lot of runs. Toronto is great against right-handed pitching, while the Astros are striking out at a high rate against it. Take the Blue Jays.
