OKLAHOMA CITY -4.5
OKLAHOMA CITY @ MEMPHIS | 8/07 | 4:00 PM EDT
It’s been an ugly restart to the season for the Grizzlies, who have lost all four of their games. They didn’t exactly play any world beaters, either, considering their losses came against the Trail Blazers, Spurs, Pelicans and Jazz. Their last two losses were both by at least nine points and they are shorthanded now with Jaren Jackson Jr. (knee) out. Meanwhile, the Thunder are coming off of a very impressive 19-point win against the Lakers on Wednesday. They have a stellar 25-9 record ATS at home or at a neutral location, so I’ll take them to cover once again.

The Thunder have the best net rating in the bubble at +9.8. The Grizzlies have the fifth-worst at -5.8. The Thunder probably aren't quite as good as their shellacking of the Lakers suggests, and the Grizzlies probably aren't as bad as their 0-4 record suggests, but these are two teams trending in decidedly different directions, and a 4.5-point line is extremely generous considering the net rating gap of more than 15 points. The Grizzlies are without arguably their best player in Jaren Jackson Jr. They are also without the backup point guard that led the bench lineups that were actually winning them games before the shutdown in Tyus Jones. The Grizz are overvalued based on their regular season, and now is the time to take advantage.

Full disclosure: I have bet against Memphis every game in this bubble, and we have to keep riding the wave. Losing Jaren Jackson Jr destroys this team. All signs point to the Grizzlies losing this 8th spot in the West. OKC has the best ATS in the NBA this year. This actually looks too easy, but that’s why I won’t lay points. Roll Thunder.

OKLAHOMA CITY @ MEMPHIS | 8/07 | 4:00 PM EDT
The Grizzlies are in a free-fall and they just lost Jaren Jackson to a torn meniscus. Dating back to before the shutdown, Memphis has lost 11 of its last 15 straight-up. While OKC continues to play without Dennis Schroder, the Thunder are playing great defense and Chris Paul is elevating them. Lay it.

OVER 8.5
COLORADO @ SEATTLE | 8/07 | 9:40 PM EDT
9:07 AM
The Rockies are 9-0 OU since May 14, 2018 in the first game of a series with no rest coming off a home game in which they scored in, at most, two separate innings. The average final score in these nine games has been 8.89 runs to 6.44 runs. The Mariners send Yusei Kikuchi to the bump tonight, and he has produced nothing but Overs in games that the oddsmakers rate close to a toss-up. Seattle is 14-0 OU in Kikuchi’s career when he starts and the line is within 30 cents of a pick'em. We are on the Over.

14-4 IN LAST 18 MLB PICKS | +941

HOUSTON +101
HOUSTON @ OAKLAND | 8/07 | 9:10 PM EDT
9:04 AM
In Zack Greinke’s last start, the Astros took a 4-3 lead into the bottom of the ninth, but lost 5-4 in extras. Houston has picked up its pitcher in this spot, going 10-0 SU in a series opener with no rest when blowing a lead in its starter's last start and lost. The Athletics, on the other hand, are 0-7 SU in the first game of a home series with no rest when their line is within 20 cents of pick'em, and they are off a home game in which they had more strikeouts than hits. Houston has the value at this price.

13-3 IN LAST 16 MLB ML PICKS | +956

MINNESOTA -153
MINNESOTA @ KANSAS CITY | 8/07 | 8:05 PM EDT
9:01 AM
The Royals are 0-14 SU at home off a home game when they blew a lead in their starters' last start and lost. Note that the Royals are 0-14 on the run line in this spot and they have lost by an average of 4.93 runs per game. Minnesota has been tough in series openers, going 14-0 SU in the first game of a series with no rest when they are coming off a game as a road favorite and facing a team that has a worse record. Also note that the Twins are 13-0 on the run line in this spot and they have won by an average of 5.57 runs. The Twins are the play.

13-3 IN LAST 16 MLB ML PICKS | +956
5-0 IN LAST 5 KC ML PICKS | +500

WASHINGTON -177
BALTIMORE @ WASHINGTON | 8/07 | 6:05 PM EDT
9:00 AM
The Orioles are 0-18 SU as an underdog in the first game of a road series with no rest when coming off a game as an underdog in which they allowed six-plus runs. Washington is 11-0 SU as a home 140+ favorite after a game in which it did not hit a home run, 15-0 SU as a 130+ favorite after drawing one or fewer walks, and 15-0 SU as a favorite by more than 125 off a home game in which their bullpen allowed multiple runs, winning by an average of 4.80 runs per game. We are laying the price.

Even though the Jazz knocked off Memphis on Wednesday, I’m not buying in. Heck, everyone has knocked off Memphis in this bubble. Life without Bojan Bogdanović (out for season) is only going to get tougher for Utah, which also will rest four starters Friday -- including Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert. The Spurs are playing small ball and playing with nothing to lose. Go Pop’s squad!

I called the Kings' game Thursday vs. New Orleans for NBA TV, and Sacramento looked fabulous for the first time in the bubble. What a bounce-back effort. Banging 3's, sharing the ball and playing with swag. The Nets are a disaster, and the best thing that happen to this line is they beat the Bucks in a historic upset on Tuesday. I’d lay as much as 8 points in this game. Lock in now with the Kings.

Minnesota lefty Devin Smeltzer gets his first start of the season Friday at K.C., and he should be confident given how well he pitched against the Royals last season (six scoreless innings, two hits). Look for Minnesota to bounce back from its heartbreaking loss Thursday.

TORONTO -2.5
BOSTON @ TORONTO | 8/07 | 9:00 PM EDT
10:03 AM
The Raptors are 24-4 over their last 28 games and playing better than any team in the bubble. With Boston up-and-down in the bubble thus far and coming off a 149-point outburst, I'll back consistent Toronto to cover this small number.

UTAH @ SAN ANTONIO | 8/07 | 1:00 PM EDT

The Spurs and Jazz have met twice so far this season and San Antonio won both. The Spurs, however, are an ugly 0-16 ATS (-11.03 ppg) at home when they won two straight vs. their opponent. San Antonio is technically the home team in the NBA bubble tonight. Utah is 6-0 ATS (+9.17 ppg) on the road off a home win and 6-0 ATS when Joe Ingles scored at least 15 more in their last game then he did two games ago, covering by an average of 17.1 ppg. We are on the Jazz.

10-6 IN LAST 16 NBA PICKS | +339

OVER 6.5
EDMONTON @ CHICAGO | 8/07 | 6:45 PM EDT
11:36 AM
The Chicago Blackhawks are a win from stunning the Edmonton Oilers in this best-of-5 series, and if the Oilers do not start playing better defensively the Hawks are going to pull off another upset. Neither team's netminders are playing well as they are getting peppered with shots and allowing a ton of goals in the process. Both clubs are loaded with offense, too. The Over has cashed in all three meetings and seen a total of 26 goals. The Oilers will come out firing as this has all the makings for another high-scoring affair.

4-0 IN LAST 4 NHL PICKS | +530

CHI. CUBS -125
CHI. CUBS @ ST. LOUIS | 8/07 | 8:15 PM EDT
11:32 AM
These are very important division games, and the Cubs could be catching the Cardinals at just the right time. The Cards return from a long layoff due to a COVID-19 outbreak and will be without a few starters; they are rusty and not in game shape. The Cubs had their six-game winning streak come to an end with a thud Thursday vs. the Royals, but this looks like a great spot to bounce back. Jon Lester has been sensational this year with an 0.80 ERA, and the Cubs should get him some runs vs. Daniel Ponce de Leon, who is 0-1 with a 6.75 ERA. The Cards have dropped six straight games as dogs.

13-7 LAST 20 MLB SIDES | +329

L.A. DODGERS -1.5
SAN FRANCISCO @ L.A. DODGERS | 8/07 | 9:40 PM EDT
11:29 AM
The Dodgers are the superior team with the better starter. The Giants' Jeff Samardzjia has been hit hard in both his starts this year, allowing five runs in each outing with an ERA approaching double digits. He is just 3-5 in his career vs the Dodgers. L.A. lefty Julio Urias is 1-0 with a 2.45 ERA and has held the opposing Giants hitters to a combined .173 BA but will be looking for his first career W vs. SF. Look for Mookie Betts to be back in the starting lineup after missing several starts. The Giants have dropped six of their last seven in Game 1 of a series. Take L.A. at -140 on runline.

8-4 IN LAST 12 MLB ATS PICKS | +332

My model likes the Brewers to win today against the Reds 52.57 percent of the time. I would take any spread above +100 here. At +100, you are getting a solid edge on a team that is heading in the right direction even with Lorenzo Cain opting out. I like the Brewers as the value play.

Zack Greinke hasn't been fully himself yet this year, but my model likes the Astros to win 50.27 percent of the time. I would take anything over +110 for the Astros. A +110 spread translates roughly to a 48 win percentage, so at +115 you are getting an even better deal, in the 3 to 5 percent edge. Take the Astros.

My model likes the Rangers to win this game 46.87 percent of the time. I would take anything over +140 for the Rangers here. A +150 moneyline translates to a win percentage 42 percent. My model sees a 3 to 4 percent edge. Take the value on the Rangers, as they finally get the timely hit to take home a W.

I'm a long time avid follower and supporter of this site/forum, and absolutely love what you do, but don't have the vocabulary to express my gratitude for the work involved and daily grind you guys(especially Shazman) put forth into this. I will send a reply on rare occasions but wanted to send one here in regards to helping.
Like most of you, I've been away from the gambling scene for awhile and just recently started back. I've noticed in the past few days, like today, that either the premium and free plays aren't posted or they are partially posted. To make a long story longer, I'd like to offer any help needed on given days to help get all material out. I have been furloughed from work and have the time right now to help if I can and if it's needed. Please let me know and I can forward you my contact info. Thanks again for everything all of you do.
