Pick - Spread
Golden State Golden State -2.5 (-110)

In the offseason, I felt the Golden State Warriors made the trade for Chris Paul in response to what they saw from the Sacramento Kings in their playoff series, and ironically, these two teams will meet again in another playoff matchup. Making Stephen Curry work for 94 feet won't be a strategy the Kings can use against Curry this time around because the Warriors can put Paul on the ball and have Curry work off of it. Not only does this take something away from the Kings, but I think there are several other matchups working in favor of the Warriors in this current moment based on how both rosters are constructed. The loss of Malik Monk is devastating for the Kings, and it's a big part of the reason they have fallen to the 9th seed and into the Play-In Tournament. But against the Warriors, this loss will be magnified.

Los Angeles Los Angeles -1.5 (+155)

The Los Angeles Kings still have something to play for despite their playoff berth being clinched. Sitting third in the Pacific Division with 97 points, they’re up by a point on the Golden Knights (who currently own a Wild Card berth), with two games for both remaining. The Kings shouldn’t need to worry if they keep taking care of business at Arena. Their 3-1 win over the Ducks was their eighth straight on home ice. Running the table would give them 10 straight — the longest home win streak since a 12-game run in 92-93.

RBC Heritage
Pick - Prop
Tommy Fleetwood to win outright (+2000)

This will be Tommy Fleetwood’s fifth trip to the RBC Heritage, and he has consecutive Top-15 finishes and carded par or better in each of his past nine rounds at Harbour Town. He also enters in excellent form and with the required skill set to string together four more solid rounds this week. He’s accurate off the tee, has a tidy short game, and the 33-year-old Englishman has consecutive Top 10s. I also value Fleetwood gaining strokes across the board at the Masters, including ranking fourth in true strokes gained tee-to-green.

RBC Heritage
Pick - Prop
Lucas Glover to win outright (+12000)

Lucas Glover continues to be mispriced despite boasting incredible ball-striking numbers and trending in the right direction with three consecutive Top-25 finishes. This will also be his 22nd trip to Harbour Town and it plays to his strengths of finding fairways and throwing darts with his mid-irons. He's sixth in driving accuracy, ninth in strokes gained approach, and eighth in proximity this season. The reason we’re landing this long number is that Glover struggles on the greens, but he did gain true strokes putting at the Masters, and he's proven capable of winning big-time events when his putter heats up. I also recommend backing him to finish Top 30 at +105 through bet365.

Pick - Moneyline
Chi. Cubs Chi. Cubs (+130)

Merrill Kelly is continuing with his late-career breakthrough but is in danger of seeing his issues with walks creep back in against a patient Cubs offense. He’s also historically had issues with barrels, something the Cubs excel at. Too many signs here point to the Cubs and I’ll happily take advantage of market skepticism surrounding Brown. He had one unfortunate inning which came as a result of a tough 3-2 call and some awful defense in Texas which have inflated his numbers. He’s very good and should prove as much on Monday.

Cincinnati Cincinnati Logo at Seattle Logo Seattle
Pick - Prop
Cincinnati Spencer Steer o0.5 Stolen Bases (+500)

Spencer Steer odds are good to target against Kirby, as he has a positive run value against his three primary pitches. There are no historical numbers for Steer against Kirby to go by, but everything on paper suggests Steer should be able to get on base at least once against him. Once there, the Cincinnati Reds have been the most aggressive team in baseball on the basepaths to start the season.

Pick - Prop
LA Dodgers Tyler Glasnow u9.5 Strikeouts (-180)

You can say many things about the Washington Nationals over the past few years, but one of the things you can’t say is that they strike out a lot. They’ll enter this matchup with the 10th-highest strikeout rate in the majors, and even that is high against what we’ve seen historically. Over the last two seasons, the Nats have finished in the Bottom 5 in the MLB in strikeouts per game.
