We delivered yet another winner for the followers of Sportsbook Room as we cashed with the Boston Celtics as they get the win and pointspread cover in game five on Monday night. As expected the Philadelphia 76ers lack of playmakers on offense got the best of them as the team could push across just 35 second half points in the loss. Boston has scorers who in any game can get hot and lead this team and in game five it was Brandon Bass with a team high 27 points. After a bad game four Kevin Garnett bounced with 20 points and six boards. This is what you get with Boston. Two starters put up good numbers and Philadelphia is going to struggle keeping up on the scoreboard. What hurts more for Philadelphia is they shot a playoff high 46.8% from the floor and still lost by 16 points. Our best betting pick from Tuesday comes from American League Baseball as the Boston Reds Sox continues their series with the Baltimore Orioles. The Red Sox and Orioles will begin from Baltimore at 7PM Eastern Time and it’s the MLB package with the live national television broadcast.

The betting odds from this AL east divisional contest opened with the road team Boston Red Sox favored by -120 odds with the over under lined at 9 ½ runs and the Baltimore take back is at +110 odds. Money early has shown on the side of the home team as Boston has been bet down to a -112 favorite with the Orioles now returning +102 odds. The run over under has not moved off the opener of 9 ½ runs. A Boston Red Sox run line bet will return +145 odds. Those taking +1 ½ runs with the Baltimore Orioles will lay -155 odds for a run line wager.
Boston will start lefty Felix Doubront on Tuesday as he faces the Baltimore lineup for the first time in his career. Doubront is in good form as the left hander has an ERA of just 2.50 in his past three starts. He allowed two earned runs in his past two starts working 11 2/3rd innings. Boston’s offense crushes left handed pitching as the club averages over 6 runs against them. The Red Sox bullpen has turned around their numbers as the club sits with an ERA of 2.88 on the road. They have an ERA of 1 ½ after their memorable loss to the Yankees as they blew a nine run lead last month.
Brian Matusz gets the start for the Orioles. He has been hit hard with an ERA of 6 ½ runs over his past three starts. In his lone start against Boston last season he gave up 6 earned runs in 1 2/3rds innings pitched. Boston is hot and with their bullpen turnaround supporting Doubront today they are the best betting pick for Tuesday at the sports books.
