NBA | Rockets vs Warriors
Play on: Warriors -8 -110 at pinnacle
Game Analysis

This is a 1* Free Play on the Golden State Warriors.

We think that the defending champs have solved James Harden and company. Golden State played much more aggressively in Game 3 after its lacklustre performance in Game 2 and it completely threw Harden off his game. We think it’s safe to say that Golden State will be employing an identical game plan here as well. The Warriors have won 16 straight home playoff games and we have a hard time seeing the Rockets mustering much of an attack this time around either. Note as well that Houston is just 2-6 ATS this year as an underdog, while Golden State is 20-10 ATS in its last 30 following a win by ten points or more. Consider the WARRIORS on Tuesday night.

MLB | Indians vs Cubs
Play on: Cubs +102 at 5Dimes
Game Analysis

This is a 1* Free Play on the Chicago Cubs (7:05 EST).

I think this one favors the home side in the opener of this interleague series.

The visitors hand the ball to Trevor Bauer (3-3, 2.59 ERA) who comes in off eight scoreless against the anemic Tigers on Wednesday. It’s hard to say anything negative about Bauer, so I won’t bother. I simply feel that he’s in the wrong place at the wrong time tonight.

The home side counters with Tyler Chatwood (3-3, 3.14) who gave up four runs off four hits and two walks with two K’s over 5.1 innings in a no-decision to the Braves on Wednesday. Chatwood hasn’t been perfect this season, but his ERA is solid and note that he’s been at his best at home by going 7-3 with a 2.98 ERA thus far.

I’ll point out additionally that the Cubs are 8-4 (+1.9 units) this year against clubs with losing records, while the Tribe is just 7-15 (-12.4 units) against teams with winning records. 

I like Chatwood to continue his strong play at home and for Bauer to come up short in this difficult assignment. Consider the Cubs on Tuesday night.

Good luck…Larry
