What’s Happening On Monday?

Two Teams Face Elimination Tonight

Will the Nets and Raptors live to see another day or will this be the end of one or both of their playoff runs? The Nuggets staved off elimination with a 126-121 win yesterday and forced a Game 5 against the Warriors on Wednesday.

The Bucks took a 3-1 series lead over the Bulls and the Heat did the same against the Hawks in games won and covered by the favorites. We don’t have much drama left in the Eastern Conference, but Mavericks/Jazz and Suns/Pelicans series are each tied at 2-2. All of the East series feature teams on the brink of elimination.

Lines for Monday’s games:

7:00 p.m. ET – Celtics at Nets (-1, 220) (Celtics lead 3-0)
8:00 p.m. ET – Raptors at 76ers (-7.5, 209.5) (76ers lead 3-1)
9:30 p.m. ET – Jazz at Mavericks (-3, 213) (Series tied 2-2)

Seven Games on a Getaway Monday

The MLB card is pretty light for Monday, as we’ll have four NL games and three AL games with more than half of the league’s teams on a one-day break. All four NL games feature big favorites, as aces Corbin Burnes, Max Scherzer and Walker Buehler all toe the rubber. The Phillies are big chalk against the visiting Rockies with Kyle Gibson on the bump.

In the AL, the game of the night appears to be Red Sox vs. Jays, as Nathan Eovaldi and Jose Berrios battle. The Astros are road favorites over the Rangers and the Guardians are laying a short price against the Angels with Orange County native Shane Bieber on the bump in Anaheim.
