Play Type: Premium

The road team has won every game in this series. We don’t think that trend is sustainable, but we also think the road team is getting too many points tonight. For whatever reason the Celtics have not been good on their home court lately as they have covered in only one of their last nine games here. They are 17-26 ATS this season at home. This one is just a three-game series now and the Bulls have a real chance here with a win. Not sure they will get it, but this should be a close game. We just don’t think the Celtics will complete three straight blowouts in this series and we think they are once again overrated by the oddsmakers at home.

We were surprised that the Wizards played so poorly in Atlanta but now that they are back home we expect them to reestablish their dominance in this series. The home team has dominated this series both ATS and SU, and we expect that trend to continue tonight. Remember, although the Wizards played better on the road down the stretch they are only 19-24 at home but an almost unbeatable 32-11 at home this season. We think they come out fired up in this one and we think that this could be a double-digit win tonight. Washington was really good ATS this season at home and we think their home-court advantage will be the difference as they put Atlanta on the brink of elimination tonight.

4-unit Play Take Nashville Predators over St. Louis Blues (8:05pm EST) We head into the Second Round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs with an unlikely matchup between the Nashville Predators and St. Louis Blues. Both teams pulled off big upsets to get here, knocking off the Blackhawks and Wild in four and five games, respectively. But one thing was very clear if you watched both of these series. The Predators definitely earned the sweep over the Hawks, while the Blues were extremely fortunate to beat the Wild. Nashville was the clear better team in three of their four wins, and arguably all four. They rarely trailed the entire series and outhustled and outworked a more talented team. The Blues were manhandled in nearly every game by Minnesota. However, Blues goaltender Jake Allen bailed out his teammates time and time again. He was the hero of the series and the reason they are still standing. Just look at the shots on goal discrepancies in the games between St. Louis and Minnesota - they are alarming. As a result, we think the Preds are a great bet as an underdog as this series kicks off. Take Nashville.

Best of Luck - Doc's Sports

Once again the Astros have the pitching edge, but Cleveland is the better all-around club. We also have a big home field edge here as we described in our write-up yesterday. Play the Tribe here as home underdogs.

4-unit Play Take #904 Pittsburgh Pirates over Chicago Cubs (7:05pm EST) The Pittsburgh Pirates aren't playing great baseball at the moment. But they're priced like a horrible baseball team today, and that's simply not the case. Pittsburgh is a legitimate playoff contender and they're no easy out at home. I expect them to get it going very soon. The Cubs aren't exactly playing great baseball right now either. The offense has been sporadic and there are several guys on the pitching staff who don't look comfortable out there yet. Jon Lester gets the ball for Chicago today. He's coming off of a shaky performance in Cincinnati and still isn't in a groove. The Cubs are obviously the better ballclub, but they don't deserve to be this big of a favorite on the road. Take the Pirates.

4-unit Play Take #902 Milwaukee Brewers over Cincinnati Reds (1:40pm EST) We played the Milwaukee Brewers in the first two games of this series and were able to collect two easy winners. Today we'll go for the trifecta as the Brewers look to sweep the Reds today. We'll reiterate what we've said over the last two days - the Brewers are miles ahead of the Reds are in their rebuilding efforts. Add in a game changer like Eric Thames to your lineup, and the Brew Crew is going to give opposing pitchers fits all season long. He already has 11 home runs in the team's first 22 games. Milwaukee has put up 20 runs in the first two games of this series, and today should be more of the same. Tim Adleman is the Cincinnati starter in this one and he owns a fraudulent 2.70 ERA that isn't supported by the underlying numbers. He owns a ridiculously low .150 BABIP and hasn't allowed any baserunners to score. The Brewers hot bats will carry them once again today in Milwaukee.

Spurs vs Grizzlies
OVER 189½ -110
Play Type: Premium

The home team has dominated this series and as we go to Game 6 in Memphis we think the Grizzlies will give one last stand. They really match up pretty well with the Spurs and were in Game 5 most of the way until San Antonio really turned it on late. But we think the Griz will play well tonight and keep this one close throughout. They should feed off the crowd energy to keep playing hard until the final buzzer, win or lose. Four out of the five games in this series have gone over the posted total and the bookies haven’t made a big enough adjustment here. Memphis has surpassed the century mark in all of the last three games (one in OT) and we think they will score enough to both cover and get this one over the posted number.

Milwaukee is going to be good in a year or two. Potentially really good if they can stay healthy and add a piece or two. But they have lost the momentum in this series and we think this one ends tonight. Toronto’s offense has really come on and the Bucks really seem to have lost their defensive edge as they gave up 118 in the last game, a blowout loss in Toronto. The two nights off here really benefits the better team, and the Raptors are 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings in Milwaukee. We really thought that Toronto should be at least -2 here and we expect them to win tonight. They have been playing more like a team and have more scoring options and the further we have gotten into this series it’s evident that the Bucks are a one-man show.

The following selection is our NHL Game of the Week

10-unit Play Take Pittsburgh Penguins over Washington Capitals (7:30pm EST) Here. We. Go. The Washington Capital, once again, are in the driver's seat in the Eastern Conference. Time after time they've faltered in the postseason despite having the best roster. Many are calling for this year to be different, but it's hard to understand why. The Caps looked a little out of sorts in the series against the Maple Leafs and could have easily lost it if not for some timely overtime goals.

The Pittsburgh Penguins just have so many weapons and are healthier than they've been in quite some time. They were impressive in their series against Columbus, disposing of them in five games. I think goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury will take advantage for his chance at redemption after losing his starting job to Matt Murray. These teams are extremely even on paper, but Pittsburgh has had a ton more of playoff success. Take the Penguins to get off to a good start in Game 1 of the series.

4-unit Play Take #964 Cleveland Indians over Houston Astros (6:10pm EST) We're playing Cleveland once again today against the Astros for many of the same reasons. The Astros also could be without Jose Altuve, who is their team leader and a huge loss at the top of the lineup. Corey Kluber gets the ball for the Tribe today and he's been one of the best pitchers in baseball over the last few years. Mike Fiers goes for Houston and it's somewhat surprising that the Astros have stuck with the right-hander after a tough year in 2016. Things haven't gotten any better as Fiers comes in with a bloated 5.40 ERA over his first three starts. Cleveland gets this one at home today.

Padres vs Diamondbacks
UNDER 10½ -111
Play Type: Premium

3-unit Play Take #960 San Diego Padres/Arizona Diamondbacks UNDER 10.5 (9:40pm EST) Jered Weaver belongs in the National League and I think he has a better year than the pundits think. So far he's been solid with a 3.91 ERA in four starts, inducing plenty of weak contact. The Diamondbacks have put up the best offensive numbers in baseball to date, and I think that is inflating this line a little bit. They'll cool off very soon. Taijuan Walker goes for Arizona and he has some big time upside. I was a little surprised that Seattle parted ways with the talented right-hander. I think he could be a future ace for this Snakes team down the road. He just needs to work on the mental part of his game, but he should have zero problems with a very weak Padres lineup today. Go UNDER the total in this one.

4-unit Play Take #952 Philadelphia Phillies over Miami Marlins (1:05pm EST) The Miami Marlins have to be exhausted right now. They traveled from Miami to Seattle, from Seattle to San Diego, and San Diego to Philadelphia - all over the last 10 days. This is the last game of the high-mileage road trip for the Marlins as they look forward to sleeping in their own beds soon. They take on the Phillies today and I like the pitching matchup for Philadelphia. Jeremy Hellickson is still underrated and has a 1.88 ERA in four starts in 2017. He's pitching to contact more often and so far it has played to his strengths. Edinson Volquez is still trying to get comfortable in a Marlins uniform. He owns a hefty 4.82 ERA this season after registering an ugly 5.37 ERA last season in Kansas City. Take the Phillies to get the job done at home today.

SERVICE BIO

Doc's Sports Service has been in the sports handicapping business since 1971, and we are recognized as one of the leaders and most trusted names in the industry.

Most handicapping services are one-man operations, but here at Doc’s Sports we are among the most progressive thinkers in the industry, and we have assembled some of the finest experts in the country for our service.

We are one of the few handicapping companies that have withstood the test of time because of hard work, honesty and consistently of providing winners to our valued clients.

Since 1971 Doc’s Sports became famous for our college football Big Ten Game of the Year that won and covered the point spread 19 years in a row.

Doc’s Sports is one of the only handicapping services whose powerful influence has historically moved the official Las Vegas line more than seven points.

At Doc’s Sports we often focus on lesser-known teams and less-popular games as oftentimes less information is available on those teams and games and certain trends tend to stick out and offer value that the average person may not catch. 

Oddsmakers set lines to balance the action, so in reality we're often handicapping against the general public perception, and the general public rarely ever wins long term. When you think of it that way our job is really not that difficult since we have more than four decades of experience and know what to look for when handicapping a game. The sportsbooks and oddsmakers have to handicap and set lines for every game -- we simply find a few of their mistakes. 

Doc’s Sports uses a combination of technical and fundamental handicapping along with exclusive information that we gather from a vast network of contacts that we have developed over the past 40+ years.

At Doc’s Sports we built our name in the 1970s by becoming one of the best in handicapping college sports. That still holds true today as our best results still come from college football and college basketball.  

We also have individual full-time handicappers for NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL, WNBA, CFL and major horse races, and we feel we have some of the top experts in the country in these designated fields. We are always in search of the best talent for our team, and what surprises most people is that some of our best information comes from our own clients. 

These are trusted clients that have been not only customers but have turned into friends of ours over the years, and they are able to pick up on key information in their areas.  We love the feeling of being able to help people make money when facing challenging odds.

Good money can be made if one has the connections, and here at Doc's Sports we pride ourselves on uncovering the edge that gives the clients the ability to beat the books on a consistent basis.
