VIP Picks 5/18/24

2-0 with a rain out last night for another winning night! On to Sunday!


PGA:

2:35 EST

To Win

Collin Morikawa (+260) 🥈

  • Morikawa comes into today tied for 1st with Schauffele at -15

  • Schauffele had a historic first round but Morikawa haw outplayed him the last 2 days. 

  • There are 6 guys within 3 strokes of the lead but I expect it to come down to Morikawa down the stretch with a chance to win it. 


NBA:

3:30 EST

Parlay 

Knicks ML / Nuggets ML (+147) 🥉

  • Is it crazy to take the home teams in deciding Game 7s? Not at all at +147 odds!

  • The Knicks have won each home game in this series and they should get the win today.

  • Jalen Brunson missed 11 shots in a row and still had 31 points in his last game. He’s the closer in this one if it ends up being a tight game.

  • The Nuggets and TWolves matchup nicely on paper and skill wise but I’ll give the edge to the defending Champs in a Game 7 since they have more playoff experience.


MLB:

7:15 EST

Padres / Braves Under (9) 🥇

  • Bryce Elder will pitch for the Braves and he’s turned out to be a work horse in his young career. He’s just 1-1 on the season but he’s pitched 5+ while allowing 2 or less runs in 3 of his 5 starts. He’s also held this Padres lineup to 4 for 23 lifetime.

  • Yu Darvish will pitch for the Padres and he’s allowed 0 runs in his last 17 innings pitched. He comes in with a 2.43 ERA and has held this Braves lineup to a .163 avg. 

  • Braves bullpen is good and Padres bullpen is middle of the pack but I like both starters to go deep which should put this game in position to go under 9.
