NBA | May 24, 2013
Indiana Pacers vs. Miami Heat
+7½-110 at BETONLINE
Off a frustrating loss in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Indiana will be champing at the bit to get back on the court on Friday night.
Pacers head coach Frank Vogel was pleased with his team's performance and, even with the blemish, his troops truly believe they can still knock off the defending champs and sneak into the NBA Finals.
Technically speaking, this is a lucrative spot for Indy. According to my database, Game 2 guests in any round of the postseason are a profitable 21-9-1 ATS provided they lost Game 1 straight up, covered the pointspread last and are currently battling an opponent that sports a won/loss percentage greater than .715. If our "play on" road team lost by seven points or less, this quick system tightens up to a solid 19-5-1 ATS.
Don't forget, Indiana has been one of the best coming off a straight up playoff loss too. According to my notes, Coach Vogel's men are a reliable 42-22-4 ATS taking the floor off a blemish including a strong 19-6-3 ATS in this set priced as a pup of +3.5 or more. With those two parameters applied and Indy on a foreign court, this team trend jumps to a sizzling 16-4-3 ATS!
As you saw the other night, the Pacers aren't intimidated by the Heat. With time to adjust, Coach Vogel will add a wrinkle or two that will help his warriors get over the hump. Take Indiana. Thank you and best of luck, Tom Stryker.
MLB | May 24, 2013
Baltimore Orioles vs. Toronto Blue Jays
-110 at BETONLINE
Off last night's 12-6 beatdown north of the border, Baltimore will battle back nicely on Friday night.
On the bump for the Orioles will be right-hander Chris Tillman. May has been a spectacular month for No. 30. With four May starts in the books, Tillman has been touched for only seven earned runs and 17 hits through 27.0 innings of work. That's good enough for a 2-1 record and a powerful 2.33 ERA. The road has been kind to Chris too. As a guest, Tillman has been nicked for just four earned runs and 16 hits in 19.1 innings. That adds up to a 2-0 mark and a solid 1.86 ERA.
Countering for Toronto will be young left-hander Sean Nolin. This will be Nolin's Major League debut. In three starts at Double-A New Hampshire, Nolin pitched well en route to a 2-0 record and a respectable 1.17 ERA. It will be imperative that the O's jump on this greenhorn early especially with the way the Jays are playing right now. Toronto has quietly won 10 of its last 16 and seven of its last 10.
There are some solid angles that support this Best Bet too. Baltimore has won 43 of its last 63 in the second game of a series and 35 of its last 52 coming off a loss. Meanwhile, Toronto has dropped 15 of its last 21 as an underdog and eight of its last 11 in the second game of a series.
Orioles' manager Buck Showalter has a pitcher on the mound that is in good form and owns the ability to silence the Blue Jays red-hot bats. Take Baltimore with Tilman. Thank you and best of luck, Tom Stryker.
