Miami at DENVER (219)
By Tommy Brunson, Featured Handicapper
11 hits yesterday, but just 2 runs scored! I had a 75 dime release on the Texas Rangers +105 on the Run Line, and they dropped a 3-2 series finale in Detroit.
Let's get back after it today with a pitching mismatch for the Thursday card.

Day Game - Has not started
Tommy Knows Diamonds!
Yes, the NBA Finals tip off tonight, but I will sit this game out, as there is something specific I need to see tonight before I can jump into the fray.
Instead, a day baseball winner coming your way.
Miami played their last 4 games of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Boston Celtics Under the posted price, while Denver hasn't played a game in 9 days, and come into the Finals having landed Under the total in 4 of their last 6 games played this postseason.
Based on those Under trends, a case could be made for this first game in Denver on Thursday night landing Under the total, but after considering that BOTH series meetings this year between the teams did head Over the total and each of the past 5 meetings between the teams has also landed Over the total, and 6 of the last 7 overall meetings having also landed Over the total, I think we need to expect that the points are indeed going to add up at Ball Arena this Thursday night.
Go ahead and play Game One between Miami and Denver to land Over the total.
2* MIAMI-DENVER OVER
Nikola Jokic POINTS (27'-over, -115)

Lost my 50 Dimer on the Cubs yesterday.
Going to bounce back today with a winner in tonight's lone WNBA game.

My free winner tonight is to play Nikola Jokic over 27 1/2 points.
This dude has been on a mission the entire postseason, and he'll prove why he should have won the league MVP over Joel Embiid if the Nuggets win this series.
Jokic is averaging 29.9 points this postseason. He has scored more than 27 points in nine of the team's 15 games - that's 60% of the time.
To set the tone for this series, look for Jokic to go off.
