Because of timing, we will have to pass on the line moves with Colorado and San Diego this afternoon, but we still have four others in baseball and tonight's big NBA contest. Take a minute to review all the betting trends and our free picks (176-143-1 run) to see what we are thinking today. See you back here tomorrow.

NBA (701) CLEVELAND at (702) BOSTON 8:35 ET ESPN

Frankly, there is not anyone who does not believe Cleveland and LeBron James will not play better in Game 2 and that is the driving force for the total to rise from 202.5 to 204. I'm completely on board with it and besides, Boston is 14-3 OVER in home playoff games the last two seasons.

MLB (955) CHIC. CUBS at (956) ATLANTA 7:35 ET CSN-C, FSSO

With Yu Darvish coming off the DL and sporting an 0-3 record and 6.00 ERA, baseball bettors have confidently moved the Cubs and Braves total from 8.5 to 9. These two teams have the top scoring offenses in the NL at over 5 runs a game and Atlanta has tallied 20 runs against Cubs pitching in three games, with Chicago at 19. Mike Foltynewicz (3-2, 3.21 ERA) has thrown well again this season but against Cubs hitters, he has a 7.36 ERA. Though Darvish is 15-4 UNDER recently when the total is 8.5 to 10, I'm not sure this will happen.
