Despite five day games in baseball, we still four line moves on the diamond and two in Game 3 of the NBA Finals. Take a minute to review all the betting trends, our free picks and predictions (209-166-3 run, 19-8-1 of late) to see what we are thinking today. See you back here Friday.

NBA (505) GOLDEN STATE at (506) CLEVELAND 9:05 ET ABC (side and total)

We have seen enough influence money to move Cleveland from +5 to +4 and the total to slide one point to 216.5. I definitely prefer the Cavaliers at +5, but they can still be worthy of consideration at the adjusted price. LeBron James will have to reach 40 points and the Cavs will have to make at least 12 three's to cover and possibly win. With this in mind, if Cleveland is to win to make this series go back to Oak-Town (aka - The Town) they will have to keep scoring and match points with Golden State which leads to Over.

Betting Trend - 58% backing Cleveland and 56% on Over

MLB (965) DETROIT at (966) BOSTON 7:10 ET FSD, NESN

Boston shutout Detroit yesterday 6-0 and they might contain the Tigers bats again with Eduardo Rodriguez (6-1, 3.88 ERA) pitching tonight. The BoSox left-hander has 2.00 ERA over his past three starts. Detroit counters with Blaine Hardy (2-0, 2.77), who's pitched very well in two starts and the lefty could curtail the Red Sox offense since they have scored more than a run less (1.2) against port-siders compared to right-hand hurlers. Meld this info together and the total is down from 9.5 to 9. I'll agree with the line movement with Rodriguez and teammates 14-3 UNDER after three or more consecutive wins and Detroit 13-4 UNDER after scoring two runs or less this season.

Betting Trend - 68% backing Under
Doug's VPID Take - Lean Under
