We came home with yet another solid winner with our best bet as the Oklahoma City Thunder go up 3-1 in their NBA playoff series with the LA Lakers by posting the 103-100 road win as a -2 point favorite. The Lakers let another game slip away from their grasps in defeat on Saturday and once against Pau Gasol continues to underperform for this team. It has been evident all season that Gasol was not an integral part of the offense and the big man from Spain seemed to just mentally check out this season and go through the motions. His point production and rebounds have slipped considerably and Gasol no longer seems interested to work hard inside for shot or rebounding position for LA. With our MLB top betting pick on Sunday we select from the interleague MLB series finale between the LA Angels and San Diego Padres. First pitch from San Diego is set for 4PM Eastern Time and you can watch this game live over the MLB package. The MLB best pick is playing on the LA Angels and San Diego Padres to play under the total of 6 ½ runs. The betting line from this Major League Baseball pick comes courtesy of Top Bet sportsbook.
The betting odds opened up with the road team LA Angels favored by -124 odds with the Padres take back at +114 odds. The run total opened up 6 ½ runs. Early money has landed on the side of the road favored as the LA Angels who are now favored by -126 odds with the Padres now returning +116 odds. The run over under has held firm at 6 ½ runs. A run line wager on the LA Angels laying -1 ½ runs will return +140 odds. Playing on the San Diego Padres on the run line and taking the +1 ½ runs will return -150 odds for a wager.
The Angels will send right hander Ervin Santana on the mound on Sunday to face the Padres weak hitting line up. The Angels starter has been in excellent form as he has allowed just five earned runs in his past three starts working 23 innings with a low WHIP of 0.91. Low WHIP means pitchers don’t allow many base runners which mean no big innings against them by the opposing offense. Santana is coming off 7 2/3rds of shutout ball against Oakland on Tuesday.
It will be Anthony Bass on the hill for San Diego today. The Padres right hander is coming off two solid outings by allowing two earned runs combined against the Nationals and Astros. Last time out Bass went 8 innings on Tuesday and gave up just one earned run in eight innings pitched against Washington. The Padres bats are horrific as the club sports a team batting average at home of .207. We have two pitchers in good form with two shaky offenses playing in a pitchers park and there will be no DH in the lineup for the Angels. The under is the best MLB pick but before making that wager pick up sportsbook promotion codes.
