Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach NBA Game #509 Saturday Free Pick Golden State Warriors (-) vs Houston Rockets @ 9:05 ET - The loss of Chris Paul to injury for Game 6 is offering huge value to the home favorite in this game. I could be wrong (of course) but feel that Houston is very nearly conceding this game and just trying (hoping) to get Paul healthy for Game 7 at home. The Rockets knew it would be tough to win again at Golden State in this series and so, with Paul hurting, perhaps they are simply "saving him" for Game 7 when they have that chance at home to close out the Warriors and advance to the NBA Finals. As for Golden State, they won't take their foot off of the gas here. They are fired up after back to back losses and they are 4-1 SU and ATS this season when they enter a game on a losing streak of 2 or more games. They also could get Andre Iguodala back for this one. Even if they don't, I expect them to win this one HUGE at home as the Rockets save their "stronger" effort for the Game 7 at home on Monday. NBA Free Pick Saturday: GOLDEN STATE

Total Annihilation - Rickenbach MLB Game #959 Friday 10* Top Play OVER the total in Colorado Rockies vs Cincinnati Reds @ 8:40 ET - High temperatures in the upper-80s expected in Denver this afternoon. That means a very mild evening at Coors Field for this one and the air, as is typically the case, will be very dry with great carry on balls put into play! The Rockies Jon Gray is off of back to back rough starts and his most recent outing was at pitcher-friendly San Francisco so that certainly doesn't bode well for his odds of a decent start at hitter-friendly Colorado tonight. Gray has now given up 11 earned runs on 19 hits in 9 innings spanning his last two starts. He allowed 8 hits in less than 6 innings of work in his last start versus the Reds. Cincinnati comes into this game having swung the bats quite well in taking 2 of 3 from the Pirates in a series that wrapped up yesterday. The Rockies bats have not fared well recently but they were on the road. Results at the plate will improve now that they are back at home. Facing a struggling Sal Romano should certainly help matters. The Reds right-hander has allowed 13 earned runs in just 7 and 1/3 innings spanning his last 2 starts. Romano was hit hard plus walked 6 in just 5 innings in his most recent start. He has struggled with fastball command while Gray has struggled with his fastballs simply being too hittable of late - .591 batting average against his fastballs last two starts! The over is 3-0-1 in the Reds last 4 road games. More of the same here. 10* OVER the total in Colorado

Contrarian Crusher - Rickenbach MLB Game #971 Friday 10* Top Play Kansas City Royals Money Line (+) @ Texas Rangers @ 8:05 ET - I like to grab underdogs against a bad team as long as I have the pitching edge and that is the case here. The Royals Eric Skoglund had a tough time versus the Yankees (after he began with 3 scoreless innings) but of course the Yanks lineup is head and shoulders above this Rangers lineup. Texas has particularly struggled against left-handed pitching as they are hitting only .229 versus southpaws on the season and yesterday's loss dropped them to 5-10 on the season versus lefties. Note too that Kansas City's Skoglund had compiled a 3.21 ERA in his 2 prior starts before struggling with the Bronx Bombers. Unlike the Rangers lineup, the Royals are hitting .261 versus southpaws on the season and that ranks them 7th out of all 30 teams. KC will take advantage of a struggling Mike Minor. The Rangers left-hander has "led" Texas to 3 straight losses in his starts as, even though he has piled up some strikeouts, when contact is being made he is getting crushed! Minor has an 8.22 ERA in his last 3 starts and he allowed 3 homers in 7 innings in his most recent home start. The Royals have won 3 straight games and are 25-17 the past 2 seasons when they enter a game on a winning streak of 3 or more games. The Rangers are just 9-18 in home games this season and they continue to be over-priced at home. 10* KANSAS CITY

Daytime Dominator - Rickenbach MLB Game #951 Friday 8* OVER the total in Chicago Cubs vs San Francisco Giants @ 2:20 ET - Temperatures in the mid-80s at Wrigley Field this afternoon. Though the winds will be rather light they are blowing out so they will help our cause here too! The Giants Derek Holland is likely in trouble here as the southpaw gave up 4 earned runs in 6 innings in his most recent start at that was at home in a pitcher-friendly park. Now he is on the road in a hitter-friendly park (when the weather is like it is today in Chicago) and Holland's most recent road start saw him walk 5 batters in just 6 and 1/3 innings. Also, in his road start prior to that the Giants southpaw gave up 6 hits (including 2 homers) in just 5 innings of work. Holland is 2-5 with a 4.94 ERA this season. The Cubs counter with Kyle Hendricks and the right-hander has given up 8 runs (6 earned) in 11 innings in his last two starts. When he last faced the Giants - in August - he allowed 5 hits plus walked 3 in less than 5 innings of work. He was fortunate to escape with just 1 earned run given up but that was at AT & T Park and he won't be so fortunate in summer like conditions at Wrigley Field this afternoon. The Cubs most recent home game stayed under the total but previously the over was 7-2 in Chicago's 9 prior home games! The Giants most recent game stayed under the total but prior to that San Francisco was on a 17-7-2 run to the over their 26 prior games. The over is 4-1 when the Giants are playing after an off day this season and the Cubs are 5-2 in that same situation. That makes this a combined 9-3 (75%) spot this season and I'll take it! 8* OVER the total in the Chicago Cubs game

Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach NBA Game #509 Friday Free Pick OVER the total in Cleveland Cavaliers vs Boston Celtics @ 8:35 ET - With all the unders both in these finals (Eastern Conference) and in the Western Conference finals it makes it tough to release a premium pick on an over with the way things have gone. However, I truly do like the over in this Game 6 match-up and that is why you're reading about it right here! The Celtics, since late March, are 11-2 to the over when they are off of a game that was decided by a double digit margin. Whether Boston lost by 10 or more or won by 10 or more, the result in the next game has almost always been an over and this is a stretch of nearly 2 months worth of games! Cleveland is 24-16 to the over when playing with revenge this season and the Cavaliers are also on a long-term run of 32-21 to the over when they are off of a loss by a double digit margin. Keep in mind, the Cavs had been shooting very well (6 out of 7 strong games), prior to the poor results from the field in Game 5. The Celtics had scored 100 points or more in 8 of their last 10 games prior to being held to just 96 on Wednesday and I look for triple digits from both teams in this one as the Cavaliers have averaged 113 points per game their last 5 home games. Free Pick OVER the total in Cleveland

ESPN Smash Pass - Rickenbach NBA Game #709 Friday 10* Top Play Boston Celtics (+) @ Cleveland Cavaliers @ 8:35 ET - The way I see it the Cavs had their chance in this series and blew it in Game 5. Cleveland had all the momentum after winning big in Games 3 and 4 at home but then went and laid an egg on the road Wednesday. Knowing that Game 7 would also be on the road and that Boston is a perfect 10-0 at home in the post-season, this is in the back of the minds of the Cavaliers whether they admit to it or not. The fact is that the Celtics now have the Cavs on the ropes and if Cleveland does somehow pull this one out I expect it to be a very tight win. Keep in mind, prior to the blowout wins in Games 3 and 4 of this series and finishing off the Raptors in Game 4 in a rout, the Cavaliers 6 prior home wins had all come by a margin of 6 points or less! In fact they are known this season for just squeaking by in games. That is why the Cavaliers are 23-49 ATS as a favorite this season and 16-33 ATS in home games! Boston is 23-10 ATS as an underdog this season. The last 5 times the Cavs were off of a double digit loss they've actually gone only 3-2 SU. In other words, even bouncing back for a SU win here is not a given and also 2 of those 3 SU wins came by 4 points or less. In other words, laying 7 points off of a double digit loss would have resulted in a 1-4 ATS record for the Cavs since April 1st. I am grabbing the big dog value with the Celtics in this one as finally we see a road team cover in this series! 10* BOSTON
