All four matchups between the Heat and Hawks were decided by eight points or fewer.

Hawks @ Heat (-5); Total 228

TIP-OFF: 7:30 p.m. ET

KEY FACTS: These teams are on opposite ends of the points spectrum. Miami ranked dead last in scoring (109.5 PPG) but gave up the second-fewest (109.8). Atlanta ranked third in scoring (118.4 PPG) yet surrendered the fifth-most (118.1).

TRENDING: The Heat are 27-14 at home but just 15-25-1 ATS. Both teams have trended toward higher-scoring games; the Over is 5-0 in Miami’s last five while it’s 4-0-1 for Atlanta.

INSIGHTS: While the Heat have nabbed 59% of the tickets to cover the spread, the underdog Hawks have reeled in 71% of the handle. This total has risen from 226 to 228, with 69% of the handle on the over.


Jon Eimer gets the day started with a pick from a massive UCL showdown. Ariel Epstein and Kazeem 'Kaz' Famuyide bring us home.


SGP (-120): Manchester City-Bayern Munich Over 2.5 Goals & Both Teams to Score [3 p.m. ET]
"While the theme for 1st legs in the UCL has been goal-shy, I find that hard to continue with two of the best attacking teams in the world. Manchester City have been in form and with Erling Haaland leading the charge, I expect goals."


Hawks ML (+165) @ Heat [7:30 p.m. ET]
"Despite all the ups and downs Atlanta has had, I like Trae Young to get hot in a one-game spot. I think he leads the Hawks to the upset."


Tigers @ Blue Jays: Blue Jays -1.5 (-145) [7:07 p.m. ET]
“Toronto's Alek Manoah is 5-1 with a 1.54 ERA in his last 10 starts. On the flip side, Matt Manning’s home/road splits are stark – 4.94 ERA on the road and 2.52 at home.”
David Peterson Under 4.5 K’s (+115) [7:10 p.m. ET]
“Southpaws facing the Padres have only averaged 3 strikeouts per start, with the under going 3-1 on their K props."

Timberwolves (+8.5) @ Lakers; Total 233

TIP-OFF: 10 p.m. ET

KEY FACTS: The Lakers overcame injuries and dysfunction to finish 9-2 and snag the West’s No. 7 seed. The Timberwolves closed with three wins but are embroiled in controversy. The team suspended Rudy Gobert tonight after he punched teammate Kyle Anderson, and Jaden McDaniels broke his hand punching a wall.

TRENDING: The Timberwolves are 9-3 in their last 12 on the road. The Over has hit in eight straight Lakers games. Both team rank in the top 7 in tempo.

INSIGHTS: The line moved from 7 to 7.5 on Gobert’s suspension. Now it’s 8.5. Team LeBron has been getting strong action, garnering 85% of the spread handle and 93% of the moneyline cash.



Yordan Alvarez finished third in AL MVP voting last season despite missing 27 games.

Shohei Ohtani has the shortest odds (+175) for any MLB awards future. For more value, here are some of the names we’re looking at for AL MVP.

Aaron Judge (+600): The reigning MVP is off to a hot start with four homers through his first 10 games — a 65-homer pace.

Yordan Alvarez (+900): The best hitter on the defending World Series champs already has an MLB-high 16 RBIs in just 10 games.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (+1000): He’s done nothing but rake since Opening Day, slashing .439/.510/.610. He’s looking like the 2021 version of Guerrero, not 2022.

Julio Rodriguez (+1200): The sky’s the limit after his phenomenal rookie campaign, especially if he can take advantage of the new rules and steal even more bases.

Adley Rutschman (+2000): It’s not hard to envision Rutschman winning the award if he has a Buster Posey-type season and leads the Orioles to the playoffs.

Wander Franco (+2200): With four homers in 10 games, Franco appears to be making the leap to superstardom in Year 3.



Jordan Spieth is looking to be the first golfer to repeat at Harbour Town since Boo Weekley in 2007-08.

Rory McIlroy skipped out, but the RBC Heritage field is loaded with nearly 50 players who made the short trip from Augusta, Ga. Here’s a look at the top of our board:

  • Scottie Scheffler (+750): Put on a stripe show during much of the Masters but couldn’t putt well enough to finish better than T-10.
  • Jon Rahm (+900): If it gets chilly this week, we suspect we know what garment Rahm will drape over his shoulders.
  • Patrick Cantlay (+1100): Are we sure he’s not still standing over that putt on 11?
  • Collin Morikawa (+1800): Looked solid at Augusta (T-10) and he’s 3-for-3 in made cuts at Harbour Town.
  • Jordan Spieth (+2000): Last year’s champ is back to defend his title. Coming in hot off a final-round 68 at the Masters.
  • Cameron Young (+2000): His bad shots at Augusta were off the planet.
  • Justin Thomas (+2500): State of his game is a mystery after second-round meltdown at Augusta.
  • Viktor Hovland (+2500): Faded to T-7 after that opening 65 last week. Always a blast to watch.
  • Xander Schauffele (+2500): Returns to Harbour Town after a two-year absence.
