Today’s daily picks will only feature bets from Dylan and Ryan. Both are looking to get their records back on track after struggling as of late. Ben and Alex didn’t see any appealing bets and are sitting this one out.

Dylan’s Picks

My picks have been absolutely atrocious as of late. I’m never betting another over/under in my life (at least for today). Trying to recover my losses, today I bring you my pick in every single NBA game and one fun MLB pick.

Joel Embiid Total Points over 30.5

I am not the biggest fan of Joel Embiid at all, BUT if the Sixers have any chance to avoid being sweat today, Embiid is going to have to put up big numbers this afternoon. I expect them to feed the big man and let him do his thing.

Paul George Total Points over 23.5

After struggling mightily in game 3, Paul George will bounce back in a big way today. PG13 will come out the gates firing looking to make up for his last performance and to get the Clippers the win. Shooters Shoot.

Brooklyn Nets +13.0 vs. Toronto Rapters.

The Rapters will without a doubt win this game and the series today. But the Nets won’t go down without a fight. Not that the Rapters are going to take it easy on them, but I don’t think they’ll play the starters the same minutes as per usual in this one.

Denver Nuggets +3.0 vs. Utah Jazz

Normally in a scenario where the spread is so small I would just take the ML. But, I’ve been having some poor luck as of late so we can’t take any chances. Denver needs to win this tonight to get the series back to even so the ML here is a good pick. Take them +3.0 to give yourself the extra cushion.

Boston Red Sox vs. Baltimore Orioles NO RUNS scored in the 1st inning

Yup. Thats the whole bet. One inning. I’m actually not even confident in it, but I like the +110 odds and even if I lose I’ll be put out of my misery quickly. These bets do always intrigue me and I have had good success in the past betting on them so this could be a good selection today.

Ryan’s Pick

“This is like taking candy from a baby”- Ryan Kelly

Denver Nuggets ML +135 vs. Utah Jazz

After winning game 1 in OT, the Nuggets were embarrassed in games 2 and 3 against the Jazz. With that said, I still believe Denver is the more talented team and they will not let Utah blow the series open. Look for a desperate Nuggets team to be on their A game tonight against the Jazz. I’m confident that Denver will even the series up tonight.
