Dave's Sunday Free Play:

1* on Cubs/Tigers UNDER 8.5

The Key: Kyle Hendricks is off to a shaky start this year for the Cubs, which is why this total is higher than it should be. He sports a 6.23 ERA in his 7 starts. But he should get right here against the lowly Detroit Tigers, who score just 3.5 RPG on the season. Matt Boyd should shut down the Cubs as well and continue his great start. Boyd is 2-3 with a 1.94 ERA in his 7 starts this year. Take the UNDER.

Play on: UNDER 7½ -125

Atlanta Braves vs Milwaukee Brewers Free Pick May 16, 2021

Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Freddy Peralta (3-1, 2.77 ERA) recorded eight Ks and allowed only one hit through seven scoreless innings against St. Louis in his last start. On the season, Peralta has 61 Ks over 39 innings of work. This will be Peralta's first start against Atlanta in 2021, but he has the current Braves roster limited to a combined batting average of .207 over 36 at bats. 

Huascar Ynoa (4-1, 2.23 ERA) takes the ball for the Braves. His earned run average speaks for itself, and he has allowed only one run over his last three starts combined. 

Free pick on UNDER. 

Mike Lundin had a rough Saturday, but he's all set to close out the week with THREE MLB WINNERS, concluding with a TOP-RATED 10* CARDINALS @ PADRES PRIMETIME MLB PLAY OF THE DAY! Check out Mike's page for all available premium pick packages and subscriptions.

NHL | Wild vs Golden Knights
Play on: Golden Knights -153 at linepros

Sunday NHL Free play. My selection is on Vegas over Minnesota at 3 pm et on Sunday.

This has the makings of an entertaining series between the Wild and Golden Knights with Minnesota having held its own here in Vegas, taking four of the last seven matchups at T-Mobile Arena. With that being said, I do like the Knights to hold serve in the series-opener on Sunday, noting that they've gone 21-7, outscoring opponents by 1.3 goals per game on average here at home this season. Minnesota checks in having gone 13-29 when seeking revenge for a one-goal loss against an opponent over the last three seasons, outscored by an average margin of 0.9 goals in that situation. The Knights took the last meeting 3-2 in overtime in Minnesota back on May 5th. We have seen some money come in on the Wild in advance of this contest, dropping the Knights into a very reasonable price range on Sunday afternoon. Take Vegas (8*).

Sean missed the mark with his first release of the NHL Playoffs last night but regulars know he's poised to bounce back in a BIG WAY on Sunday! Don't miss Murph's 10* NHL West Division First Round Total of the Year plus more winners from the NBA, MLB and WNBA!

NBA | Grizzlies vs Warriors
Play on: UNDER 230 -115

The NBA Comp play for Sunday is on the Under in the Memphis at Golden St game at 3:40 eastern. In what looks like the most competitive game of the day here with a pair of teams both with a 38-33 record. These 2 have gone under in 5 straight with 224 or less points in each game. Golden St has gone under in 4 of 5 on Sundays and 16 of 21 vs a winning team. Memphis has gone under the last 5 vs a team that allowed 100 or more, 20 of 27 n Sundays and 15 of 22 vs a winning team. With the Winner taking the 8 seed. Look for a competitive game that plays under the total. Rob V- GC Sports.

MLB | Indians vs Mariners
Play on: Indians -1½ -111 at pinnacle

I'm not sure if I fully trust Cleveland's offense. The Indians haven't scored more than four runs in any of their last five games. 

 But I do trust Cy Young Award winner Shane Bieber backed by a bullpen that has the second-lowest ERA in the majors.  I don't see the Mariners doing much damage against this combination. Seattle is batting .205. That's the lowest batting average in baseball. Bieber has a 1.32 ERA in two career outings versus Seattle.  The key is can the Indians cover laying 1 1/2 runs? They should since the Mariners don't figure to put up too many runs - if any.  This is shaping up as a bullpen game for the Mariners with Robert Dugger as the starter. He's pitched eight innings in four appearances this year. This will be his first start with the Mariners down several starters from their usual rotation. Dugger's career record is 0-4 with a 6.62 ERA.

MLB | Nationals vs Diamondbacks
Play on: Diamondbacks -104 at linepros

My free play is on the Arz D'backs at 4:10 ET. The Nats made that miracle run to win the franchise's lone World Series title in 2019 but fell to 26-34 in 2020, finishing last in the NL East. The Nats' first four games of the 2021 season were postponed due to COVID concerns and not much has gone right since, as at 15-20 they are tied with the Rockies for the fewest wins in the majors and are again in last-place in the NL East. Arizona entered last year's pandemic-shortened season off three consecutive winning years but went just 25-35 and finished in last-place in the NL West. The D'backs have played slightly better than the Nats this season (18-22) and find themselves fourth in the NL West, ahead of only the previously mentioned 15-25 Colorado Rockies. The two teams cap a three-game series this afternoon at Chase Field, with Washington winning 17-2 on Friday and Arizona bouncing back with an 11-4 win on Saturday. The starting pitchers for the rubber match of this three-game series will be Erick Fedde (2-4, 5.29 ERA) for Washington and Luke Weaver (2-3, 5.00 ERA) for Arizona. Fedde's career began in 2017 and he entered this season just 8-13 with a 5.10 ERA over 46 appearances (34 starts). He's 2-4 with a 5.29 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in seven starts this season (team is 3-4). Weaver broke into "the Bigs" in 2016 with the Cardinals and showed some promise in 2017 by going 7-2 with a 3.38 ERA in 13 appearances (10 starts). However, that 2017 seems like a LONG time ago. He was traded to Arizona prior to the 2019 season and in 2020's shortened season, was just AWFUL. He made 12 starts, going 1-9 with a 6.58 ERA and 1.56 WHIP (team was 2-10). He's 2-3 with a 5.00 ERA in seven starts this season (team is 4-3). It's still early but it's hard to see either of these teams contending in 2021 and after back-to-back blowouts by the winning side in this series, the "edge" in this one goes to Arizona. A closer look at Weaver's current season reveals he's made four road starts (he's 0-3 and the team 1-3), as he's posted an 8.20 ERA in allowing opponents to hit .304 against him. However, in three home starts, he is 2-0 (team is 3-0), as he's posted a 1.56 ERA and .172 BAA. Back Weaver and the D'backs here at Chase Field. Good luck...Larry

May 16 '21, 4:10 PM in 4h
Play on: OVER 7½ -108

FREE PICK - Marlins/Dodgers OVER 7.5 
ROT#: 907/908

I'm confident we are going to see at least 8 runs in Sunday's series finale between the Marlins and Dodgers. After combing for 15 runs and flying past the total of 6.5 in Game 1 of the series, they only combined for 7 on Saturday, falling short of the the total at 7.5. Only reason that game stayed under is because starter Trevor Bauer was lights out. He held the Marlins scoreless for 7 innings and the bullpen kept the shutout intact. 

Dodgers have scored at least 6 runs in each of their last 4 games and are averaging 6.6 runs/game in their last 7. They are scoring 5.4 runs/game at home and 5.7 runs/game vs right-handed starters. 

It's why I'm not all that concerned seeing Marlins' starter Pablo Lopez and his 3.07 ERA and 1.205 WHIP. Lopez has a 5.49 ERA and 1.453 WHIP in 4 road starts and is coming in off a bad outing at Arizona, where he allowed 6 runs on 7 hits and 3 walks in 4 1/3 innings. 

As for the Dodgers, they are starting Jimmy Nelson, who has only been used as a reliever to this point and hasn't made a big league start since June of 2019. Miami had scored 14 runs on 30 hits over their previous 3 before running into Bauer, so it's not crazy to think they will get back on track in this one. Give me the OVER 7.5!

NBA | Clippers vs Thunder
Play on: UNDER 221½ -109

Jack's Free Pick Sunday: Clippers/Thunder UNDER 221.5

Both the Los Angeles Clippers and Oklahoma City Thunder have incentive to lose this game today. The Clippers would remain the 4th seed in the West with a loss to the Thunder on Sunday. That would assure they wouldn't have to play the Lakers until at least the conference finals.

The Thunder are going to be desperate to lose one more game to ensure they finish no worse than tied for 3rd with the Magic in the lottery standings. Oklahoma City has mastered losing here down the stretch, going 1-23 in their last 24 games overall with countless blowout losses.

The Clippers rested basically ever member of their rotation against the Houston Rockets Friday night and lost outright. They will likely do so again. With both teams basically trying to lose, points are going to be harder to come by. Bet the UNDER in this game Sunday.

Play on: Flames -129 at pinnacle

These teams play another meaningless game this evening. Calgary won 4-1 when the teams met a few days ago. The Flames haven't played since though while the Canucks are off a 4-1 win against Edmonton. That's noteworthy as Vancouver is 1-8 when playing the second of b2b games while Calgary is 4-1 when playing with two day's rest in between games. Schedule in its favor, consider Calgary.
