Picks for 5/17/23

Rotation #534
Celtics -8 over Heat (loss)
Miami has played exceptionally in the playoffs, but remember, they are less talented than Boston. The Celtics have a good offense to go along with a good defense. Miami is a great defensive team, but they need more offensive production as they don’t share the ball well. The Heat need over 40 points each game from Jimmy Butler to be competitive in this series. Jayson Tatum will be too much on offense, and the Boston three-point shooting will push them out to a massive lead in game one. Look for Miami to come back down to life tonight. Take the Celtics.

6:40 PM EST
Rotation #956
Marlins -115 over Nationals (win)
The Marlins are one of the best teams in baseball at on-base percentage against right-handed pitching, while the Nationals are one of the worst against left-handed pitching. MacKenzie Gore is a decent pitcher, but his team will fail to give him the run support needed to win. Edward Cabrera is an average pitcher but will shut down a team that struggles against lefties. Take the Marlins.
