The Golden State Warriors will have to face the Los Angeles Lakers this Wednesday night for the right to advance in this year’s postseason. The Warriors managed to get this far by finishing the season with a stellar six-game winning streak but will now have to face LeBron James and the Lakers. LA enters with a win streak of their own after triumphing in their last five consecutively, eager to use Wednesday’s home field advantage to edge out a win over Golden State.
All in all, this will be the fourth time this year these two have met. So far, the Lakers have gotten the better of Golden State two games to one. This has led Wednesday’s NBA odds to peg Los Angeles as a heavy favorite in this play-in tournament.
Golden State enters this contest with the better scoring offense. They finished the season ranked 12th overall in scoring while the Lakers finished 22nd. However, Los Angeles wielded the 2nd best defense in the NBA, whereas Golden State came in at No. 21.
So where’s the betting value lie in this NBA playoff matchup? It’s clear the Lakers have the edge here. They get to play at home, they have the better defense and they come in with a clean bill of health. The Lakers will win Wednesday and they’ll score more than 112 on the night as well. Get the most bang for your buck by taking the Los Angeles’ team over line.
NBA Playoff Pick: Lakers 118, Warriors 109
Detroit Tigers vs Seattle Mariners – Wednesday
When: 10:10 p.m. ET
Where: T-Mobile Park, Seattle, Washington
MLB Totals Odds: OVER 8 (-105) || UNDER 8 (-105)
— Seattle Mariners (@Mariners) May 19, 2021
The Detroit Tigers have one thing on their mind this Wednesday and that’s sweeping the Seattle Mariners. Although the Mariners came into this three-game series with the better record and a small winning streak, they have been completely manhandled by Detroit. Surprisingly enough the Tigers managed to take Game 1 4-1 before following it up with a 5-0 shutout win in Game 2. Heading into Game 3, it’s looking like Detroit will successfully deliver this eye-raising sweep.
Looking over Wednesday’s starting pitchers, it’s clear this will be a high-scoring affair. This is because the Tigers will be starting LHP Tarik Skubal while Seattle will be sticking with RHP Logan Gilbert. Gilbert is 0-1 this season and enters with a 9.00 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP through 4 innings. Skubal on the other hand is 0-6 and has a 5.73 ERA and a 1.58 WHIP this season. Both numbers are unimpressive but the question here is whether Gilbert’s numbers are a result of a bad night, or if they’re an accurate representation of his skills.
The latter seems like the more likely scenario this Wednesday but to play it safe, we’ll be playing the over here.
