CLICK HERE FOR NICK PARSON’S EXPERT NBA PICKS
The Toronto Raptors will be looking to extend the series at least one more game but it won’t be easy. The Raptors have been led by DeMar DeRozan with 22.3 points and 6.3 assists a game while Amir Johnson is adding 14 points and 8.3 rebounds. Jonas Valanciunas is grabbing 9.3 rebounds. The Toronto Raptors have been a sieve on defense allowing 223 points in their last two games, and they’ve lost seven of their last eight games when allowing 100-plus points. The Raptors also aren’t getting anything from Kyle Lowry, who is shooting just 23.8 percent from the field in this series.
The Washington Wizards are looking to close out Toronto in game four. Bradley Beal has led the Wizards with 20 points and 6.7 rebounds a game. His backcourt running mate, John Wall adds 18.3 points and 13.3 assists. Paul Pierce is shooting 53.8 percent from the field and hitting dagger shots down the stretch. Marcin Gortat is grabbing 9.7 rebounds game.. The Washington Wizards are shooting 48.6 percent from two and 39.4 percent from three in this series. The Wizards may currently be playing their best basketball of the season. The Wizards have won five of their last six home games.
The Wizards have been playing great and Paul Pierce is hitting big shot after big shot. Toronto has not shown up on the defensive end and Washington has been able to do what they want. There is no reason for that to change here.
Memphis Grizzlies vs. Portland Trailblazers
NBA Pick: Memphis +3 (April 25th 2015)

Take the Memphis Grizzlies as your NBA free pick for Saturday night as they travel to Portland to take on the Trail Blazers with the tip-off at 10:35 PM ET. This pick falls into one of my top NBA betting systems and the Grizzlies are 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games played against Portland. The oddsmakers have the Portland Trail Blazers favored by 3 points at home and the posted game total is 188.5 points.
The Memphis Grizzlies are the better overall team here Saturday night and Portland has no business being favored so we are getting very good line value. The Trail Blazers are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games overall and they have been outscored by an average of 14.5 points per game over the first two games of this series. The Trail Blazers averaged 102.3 ppg overall this season but they have averaged just 84 ppg in their first two games in this series against the Grizzlies while shooting just 36% as a team.
Portland is a different beast at home with a 32-9 SU record this season however Memphis is 5-1 SU and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 trips to Portland. This Portland team could not be colder right now as they are winless in their last 6 games overall including 0-6 ATS and they are also 11-25 SU in their last 36 games after 3 or more consecutive losses. Play the Memphis Grizzlies with confidence tonight as I believe the wrong team is favored here in game 3
Washington Nationals vs. Miami Marlins
Over-Under Betting Pick: Over 7.5 runs (April 25th 2015)

The Marlins took Game 1 of this series versus Washington by a score of 3-2, but I think we can expect a few more runs to cross the plate here in Game 2 in Miami.
Stephen Strasburg will toe the slab for the visitors, and he’s off to a disappointing start to the season. Strasburg (1-1, 4.50 ERA) allowed one run on five hits and two walks over 7 1/3 innings in a home win over the Phillies his last time out. That was against the major league’s worst offensive team, and he had been tagged for 11 runs on 19 hits over 10 2/3 innings prior to that.
Strasburg has faced the Marlins more than any other team, and he owns a decent record going 7-4 in 15 starts since 2012. Only one of those wins came in Miami, where he’s 1-2 with a 3.50 ERA. The big bats in the Marlins lineup have punished Strasburg, as Giancarlo Stanton is hitting .357 with three homers and nine RBIs, and Marcel Ozuna is 6-for-13 with a home run and five RBIs lifetime versus the right-hander.
The Fish hand the ball to Tom Koehler, who has been hit hard so far this season. Koehler (1-2, 6.75 ERA) was torched for seven runs on five hits and two walks in just 3 1/3 innings in a loss to the Mets his last time out. Jayson Werth is hitting .300 with a pair of home runs in 10 career at bats versus Koehler.

The free NBA Game 4 Historical super system side is on Toronto. Game 741 at 7:05 eastern. The Raptors laid an egg at home and need to save a little face here. On Tuesday we told you that teams who win game 1 on the road like Washington were just 4-23 in game 2 of round 1. Well. Washington became team number 5 to win both games on the road. So one begs the question. What happens to these home teams in game 3? Well, your answer is below. They fall flat on their face and go 0-4. The sample is small. But the feeling is Toronto will give their best game here, as they know if they get down 3-0, the can start making their vacation plans. The Wizards are a dismal 1-8 ats at home off a dog win and have failed to cover 5 of 6 at home off a 10+ road spread win. Last year Washington took the first 2 in round 1 in Chicago then lost straight up as a 3 point favorite at home in game three. This starting to make a little sense here?. Look for Toronto to at the very least get the cover. On Friday the 1st Round 100% NBA Total of the Year headlines the card along with a Triple system Double perfect side in the late NBA Game.

San Diego Padres vs. Colorado Rockies
Baseball Pick: San Diego -110 odds (April 23rd 2015)
CLICK HERE FOR JIMMY BOYD’S EXPERT MLB PICKS
San Diego had their 3-game winning streak snapped in a surprising 4-5 loss on Wednesday with ace James Shields on the mound. It was the Padres third failed attempt at putting together a 4-game winning streak. Each time they have had their 3-game skid stopped, they have bounced back with a win the next time out.
That’s exactly what I’m expecting this afternoon when San Diego’s Tyson Ross takes the mound against the Rockies Jordan Lyles. Ross hasn’t quite been up to the level we would expect so far this season, but has not allowed more than 3 earned runs in a single start. Lyles has allowed 7 in his last two starts and has really struggled against the Padres. He’s 1-3 with a 6.30 ERA and 1.834 WHIP over 6 career starts (1-5 team record).
Lyles is just 7-31 in his last 38 starts when going up against a team with a winning record and his team has lost these starts by an average of 6.3 to 3.7. Colorado is also just 1-7 in Lyles’ last 8 starts as an underdog and 1-8 in his last 9 against a division opponent. Padres are 8-2 in their last 10 following a loss and 7-2 in Ross’ last 9 starts as a favorite. These trends combine to form a strong 82% (61-13) system in favor of the Padres. Take San Diego!
