OK, I changed my mind on the NBA for line moves since I found a game that had importance for both teams. We complete the process with three baseball line moves. Take a minute to review all the betting trends and our free picks (135-106-4 run) to see what we are thinking today. See you back here Friday.

NBA (707) DENVER at (904) MINNESOTA 8:05 ET ALT, FSNO (side and total)

Huge game on the NBA card, with a winner takes all game for the last spot in the playoffs in the Western Conference. Minnesota has shot up from -2 to -3.5 or -4, depending on the sportsbook and the total has slipped two points to 215.5. Of course the pressure is tremendous on both teams, but Denver has won six in a row, however; the Timberwolves have Jimmy Butler back. At +4 I'll take the Nuggets with the points and the UNDER, realizing the T-Wolves are 4-12 ATS after scoring 110 points or more in two straight games and 14-4 UNDER after two or more Under's this season.

Betting Trend - 74% backing Minnesota and 60% on Under
Doug's VPID Take - Lean Denver and Under


Toronto has taken the first two games of this divisional series and goes for the sweep tonight over Baltimore. Of particular interest to baseball bettors is the total, which has climbed from 8.5 to 9. Personally, I find this fascinating since 14 of the past 18 matchups at Camden Yards have produced UNDER's. In addition, the Jays Marco Estrada has 3.19 ERA against the Birds and the Orioles Kevin Gausman is at 3.12 vs. the Canadien Birds. Both pitchers are 9-4 UNDER against the other team. Maybe, it's the home plate umpire Quinn Wolcott, who is 35-22 OVER recently. No matter, I'm on the UNDER.
