The Grizzlies have been a disaster in Orlando, winning only one of their seven games. They need to pull out a victory to keep their playoff hopes alive and might have caught a break, as crazy as that sounds, by playing Milwaukee. The Bucks have wrapped up the top seed in the East and will be without Giannis Antetokounmpo, who will be serving a one-game suspension. It also wouldn’t be a surprise to see Eric Bledsoe, Khris Middleton and/or Brook Lopez sit out, or at least play limited minutes. With the Grizzlies playing all of their regulars, I like them to cover this small line.

This game is not going to be pretty. Already ruled out for the Magic are Evan Fournier, Terrence Ross, Aaron Gordon and Michael Carter-Williams. While Nikola Vucevic hasn’t been ruled out, he logged only 21 minutes against the Nets on Tuesday and once again could see limited action. Meanwhile, the Pelicans will be without Zion Williamson, Brandon Ingram and Jrue Holiday. It also wouldn’t be a surprise to see JJ Redick and Derrick Favors stay anchored to the bench. Keeping all of that in mind, Lonzo Ball still should play, and they do have some productive big men in Nicolo Melli, Jaxson Hayes and Jahlil Okafor. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Pelicans win this outright, so I’ll take the points.

Phoenix has been phenomenal in the bubble, winning all seven of its games - including a triumph over Dallas on Aug. 2. The Suns have plenty to play for, as a victory coupled with a loss by either Portland or Memphis guarantees them a spot in the play-in game in the West. Dallas is locked in as the No. 7 seed and likely will rest or limit the minutes of its top players. Expect Phoenix to roll.

Cincinnati had won three of four before dropping a 5-4 decision to Kansas City on Wednesday, as their rally from a 5-0 deficit fell just short. The Pirates have lost three straight and have been idle since Sunday. Pittsburgh also has struggled mightily on the road, going 1-7. Meanwhile, starter Trevor Williams has lost six straight decisions dating back to last season. Take the Reds.

The Orioles are 8-0 SU as a road underdog when it is not the first game of a series after a contest in which they stranded more than 10 baserunners. That’s right, eight straight wins as a road dog. Baltimore was an average of plus 163 on the moneyline and won by an average of four runs. The Phillies are 0-9 SU when they are coming off a loss in which they held the lead and 0-11 SU as a home favorite after a game as a home favorite in which they scored first. We are grabbing the generous price.

MILWAUKEE @ CHI. CUBS | 8/13 | 7:15 PM EDT

Milwaukee is 0-7 with no rest in a series opener against a team with a better record, losing by an average of 4.57 runs. The Cubs are 7-0 SU as a favorite after a game in which they hit at least one home run and 7-0 SU at home when they are coming off two wins in which they never trailed. Chicago is the play.

The Rays are 8-0 SU in the last game of a series as a favorite when they lost their starter's last two outings and 9-0 SU as a favorite of more than 130 in the last game of a road series when they hit multiple home runs as a favorite in their previous contest. Boston is not much for stopping losing streaks, going 0-10 SU as a home underdog against a team that has won at least its last two games and are coming off a contest as a home underdog, with every defeat being by multiple runs. The Rays continue to roll.

CINCINNATI -177
PITTSBURGH @ CINCINNATI | 8/13 | 5:10 PM EDT

The Reds are coming off a bad game but are a reliable 16-0 as a 130-plus favorite before their 105th game of the season following a loss as a favorite in a contest in which they never led. Pittsburgh had a great chance to pick up a win Sunday, as it outhit Detroit 6-4. However, it lost 2-1 as a small home favorite. This has not been a good spot for the Pirates, as they are 0-12 SU as an underdog after a one-run loss as a home favorite. The value is with the Reds.

The Suns are on fire right now since the restart, posting a perfect 7-0 record both SU and ATS and showing no signs of slowing down as they continue their playoff push. Phoenix will need help if it is to make the playoffs, but this appears to be a favorable matchup. The Mavs have nothing to play and are locked into the seventh seed in the West, so look for a Dallas squad to not be playing all its starters. The Mavs are 2-10 ATS the last 12 meetings overall.

SAN ANTONIO -8
SAN ANTONIO @ UTAH | 8/13 | 6:30 PM EDT

The Spurs are playing for their playoff lives, as they need to win and get help if they are to make their record 23rd straight postseason appearance. San Antonio is 5-2 since the restart and beat Utah 119-111 last Friday. The Jazz have a playoff spot locked up and it's not clear on how many starters will play, but it looks like Utah will be trying to get its younger players playoff ready and rest most their key guys -- at least in the second half. The Jazz are 1-11-1 ATS in their last 13 games following a loss.

VEGAS -1.5
CHICAGO @ VEGAS | 8/13 | 5:30 PM EDT
9:02 AM
The Knights came out tough in Game 1 and look to take a commanding 2-0 series lead over the Hawks. This game will play out just like the first one, as the Knights are healthy offensively and they are a matchup nightmare for the horrible defense of the Blackhawks. Chicago was one of the worst third-period teams in the NHL during the season and figures to struggle again getting solid shots on net vs. a good defensive team. Vegas' Robin Lehner is in net again and looking to continue his winning ways vs. his former team. The Knights have won nine of 10 all-time meetings vs the Blackhawks. Back Vegas +125 on puckline.

CALGARY -110
CALGARY @ DALLAS | 8/13 | 10:30 PM EDT
8:58 AM
The Dallas Stars are going in the wrong direction, having dropped three of four games since the restart and six straight prior. With or without out Ben Bishop in net, this is a very different team than we saw in the regular season. The Stars don't generate a lot of scoring chances, average among the fewest goals per game in the NHL and depend on winning defensive games. The Flames are hot and so is goalie Cam Talbot. This is a chance for the Flames to really put the stranglehold on the Stars and go up 2-0 in this series. Dallas has dropped six straight games played on one day of rest.

TAMPA BAY -1.5
TAMPA BAY @ BOSTON | 8/13 | 4:30 PM EDT
8:54 AM
The Tampa Bay Rays have dominated the Boston Red Sox of late, having won seven straight and 12 of the last 13 meetings at Fenway Park. The Rays' Tyler Glasnow looks to improve from his last start that lasted just over two innings. Kyle Hart is making his major-league debut as the Red Sox's starting rotation continues to struggle. Hart was just 25-29 in the minors and facing a hot-hitting squad in the Rays that has scored 25 runs with 40 hits over the last three games overall. Bet Rays -105 on runline.

Give me the under here in game 2 since 6 of the last 9 games between these 2 teams have gone under the total and each of these teams have only gone over the number in one game since the restart. Game 1 was a push but there were only 3 powerplays in the game and only 52 total shots indicating a very defensive minded game. Look for more of the same in game 2 with this one going under this number. Thank you and good luck.

The Phillies have lost four of their last five and are on the verge of being swept by the Orioles. The Orioles have won four straight and are 9-7. Jake Arrieta was sharp in his last start but he doesn’t deserve to be such a big favorite. Tom Eshelman held his own in his only start, a 5-3 win at Washington. Let's ride the streaks and price value Thursday with the Orioles.

The Red Sox have lost three straight and send pitching prospect Kyle Hart to the mound to make his MLB debut. The Rays come in with a five-game win streak and have now won seven straight at Fenway Park. Tyler Glasnow is still trying to get back to his early 2019 form but has allowed seven runs in 11.1 innings between his three starts. Over is the top play as I expect both starters to get hit often.

SAN DIEGO @ L.A. DODGERS | 8/13 | 9:40 PM EDT

Julio Urias has been a stud for the Dodgers, only giving up four earned runs in his first 15 IP. Chris Paddack has been good for the Padres this season going 2-1 with a 3.18 ERA this season and he won his first start this season against the Dodgers after giving up three runs in six IP. However in his career at Dodger Stadium, he is 0-1 with a 5.65 ERA in six starts. The Padres only have the 13th highest OPS against lefties at .766 and the Dodgers have the second-best bullpen in the league behind only the Cardinals with a 1.24 ERA. Take the value in the Dodgers.

The Canes lost a tough one in Game 1 after a comeback fell short in double OT. However, this team doesn’t seem fazed by much. They got two goals from their defensemen in Game 1 and they can get contributions up and down the roster. The Bruins have seemed to rely too much on their first line lately, although they were able to win them Game 1. Take the Canes at plus money to even up this series.

WASHINGTON @ N.Y. METS | 8/13 | 1:10 PM EDT

Austin Voth has made two starts this season, and he has only given up two earned runs in 10 IP. He faced the Mets once last season and struck out four batters in 2.1 IP in relief. Voth has actually pitched better against lefties this season in a small sample size and the Nats have the highest batting average in the league against lefties at .339 and highest OPS at 1.020. This game should be closer to 50-50, take the value in the Nats at plus money.

Anthony Davis, Kyle Kuzma, Alex Caruso and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope are sitting out, and LeBron James and Danny Green will not play in the second half.

This spread reflects the disparate motivational spots for the Suns and Mavericks. Dallas already is locked into the No. 7 seed in the Western Conference, while Phoenix, the bubble's lone unbeaten team, needs to extend its win streak to eight in order to qualify for the play-in game. It;s unlikely that the key players for Dallas will see any court time Thursday. Even so, needing the historically moribund Suns to notch a double-digit victory in a must-win game is never a position you want to take. Look for the Dallas reserves to make the Suns earn it.

Brewers Run Line +1.5 over Cubs -130
Anderson/Darvish
The wind is blowing in tonight and the Cubs are not good at hitting left handed pitching. I expect this to be a low scoring game so the extra run tonight holds pretty good value in my book. Darvish is pitching well for the Cubs and Anderson will eventually get back into the swing of things now that his blisters are healed on his throwing hand. Look for a boring game, but it should be close. Take the Brewers.

The Pelicans are without Zion Williamson, Brandon Ingram and Jrue Holiday - a total of 66 points per game. In their last contest, the pace was just 100 in a 112-106 loss to Sacramento - a team that also runs. Now they play Orlando, which ranks near the bottom of the league in pace. The Magic will be without Aaron Gordon, Evan Fournier and Terrence Ross - a total of 47.5 points per game. They will be playing two bigs inside. This is a game that has absolutely no meaning, and normally I would love the Over. However, there are just too many starters and too much firepower missing.

MILWAUKEE @ CHI. CUBS | 8/13 | 7:15 PM EDT

Milwaukee's Brett Anderson is only in the big leagues because he's a southpaw. He has well-below average stuff and would not be on a roster if right-handed. Anderson's ERA over his last four-plus years is 4.98, with almost one-third of his 385 innings taking place in a pitcher's park. Chicago's Yu Darvish has been brilliant over his last two starts, but I'm not completely sold he still is a top-tier pitcher. The Cubs' offense has lived up to its billing as one of the top five in baseball. The Brewers have underachieved, but I still think they are above average. The total is lower because the wind will be blowing in from center, but under 10 miles per hour will not affect play.
