GAME: (733) INDIANA PACERS vs (734) ATLANTA HAWKS
SPORT: NBA
PICKS: (733) INDIANA PACERS
REASON FOR PICK: The #1 seeded Indiana Pacers head to Atlanta to face the Hawks in game 3 of the Eastern conference first round matchup. The Pacers fell asleep towards the end of the regular season and some are wondering what happened to one of the east's favorites. Roy Hibbert has been disinterested while coache Frank Vogel went from genius to being second guessed. The Pacers brought that same effort into the playoffs and were waxed by a banged up less superior Hawks team. Atlanta again led at the end of the first half in game 2. Then the real Pacers showed up outscoring ATL 53-33 in the second half to even the series. The Pacers will get it going and have the same core who pushed Miami to the brink the L2 seasons. Give Atlanta credit for valiant effort but Pero Antic,Shelvin Mack, and Mike Scott don't get it done in the playoffs. This line is a PK bc of the Pacers dissaray and we are getting great value here. The Pacers showed me something in game 2 and I believe they will get it going and once again challenge the Miami Heat. The Pacers are better in all areas than the #8th seeded Hawks and will win this game easily. PLAY:(733)Indiana Pacers (pk) 4*
GAME: (907) SAN DIEGO PADRES vs (908) WASHINGTON NATIONALS
SPORT: MLB
PICKS: (907) SAN DIEGO PADRES
REASON FOR PICK: After that enthralling ninth-inning rally to beat the Angels on Wednesday, not sure the Nats are up for similar dramatics tonight at home vs. the Padres. San Diego starter Eric Stults is also coming off his best showing of the season when the portsider went six innings and allowed one run and three hits in a 3-1 win over San Francisco on Saturday. Stults also didn't allow a homer in his only start against the Nationals, as he gave up one run and four hits over eight innings of a 2-1 win last May 18. Play Padres on Money Line
GAME: (907) SAN DIEGO PADRES vs (908) WASHINGTON NATIONALS
SPORT: MLB
PICKS: Under
REASON FOR PICK: 1* Free Play “under” between Padres and Nationals. The last time these starters faced each other it resulted in a 2-1 game. Look for more of the same here. The visiting Padres will send Eric Stults (1-2, 4.35 ERA) to the hill. Stults gave up one run on four hits in six innings of work to earn a win over San Francisco at home in his last outing. Stults went eight innings while giving up just run in getting a win for his team the last time he faced the Nats. The home side will send Jordan Zimmerman (1-1, 3.92 ERA) to the bump to oppose Stults. Zimmerman is coming off a loss to the Cardinals where he gave up four runs (one earned) over seven innings on Saturday. Zimmerman has been outstanding against the Friars despite a 1-2 record, the righty has posted a sparkling 1.95 ERA over 32 innings pitched against San Diego for his career. Keep in mind the “under” is 11-2 in Padres games when they have faced teams with winning records this season. San Diego continues to struggle at the plate and that’s not about to change in facing a quality pitcher in Zimmerman. San Diego has scored four runs just once in its last nine games and gone 11 straight without reaching double digits in hits. The Padres have totaled 16 runs while batting .205 and striking out 56 times in their past seven games. Consider taking the “under.” AAA Sports
GAME: (907) SAN DIEGO PADRES vs (908) WASHINGTON NATIONALS
SPORT: MLB
PICKS: (908) WASHINGTON NATIONALS
REASON FOR PICK: Play On: Washington w/Zimmerman. Note: When Jordan Zimmerman and the Nationals open a four-game set against the Padres Thursday evening in the nation's capitol they will take on the field knowing they are 11-4 the last fifteen games in this series. In addition, Washington is 14-6 the last twenty games at home behind Zimmerman, and 9-3 in his last twelve starts during the month of April. With the Padres 4-12 in Eric Stultz's last sixteen road starts, we recommend a 1-unt play on Washington. Thank you and good luck as always. Marc's red-hot winning hand on the NBA hardwood continues Thursday night with another Top Of The Ticket Top Key Play backed with a pair of 100% ATS perfect winning playoff angles in the game that are 17-0 and 12-0 ATS the last 25 years of the playoffs.

GAME: (907) SAN DIEGO PADRES vs (908) WASHINGTON NATIONALS
SPORT: MLB
PICKS: Under
REASON FOR PICK: Your free pick for Thursday, April 24, 2014, comes in baseball as San Diego and the Nationals meet in Washington. Washington is a huge park, great for pitchers, and a terrible San Diego offense is in town. San Diego ranks 30th in runs scored, 28th in on base percentage and 26th in slugging. The under is 38-11-2 in the Padres last 51 vs. a team with a winning record. Starter Eric Stults has been decent, with 2 straight wins allowing 1 and 3 earned runs. Stults allowed just three hits, one run and no walks over six innings in his first win of the season Saturday against the visiting Giants. The six innings were the longest Stults has lasted in four starts this year, so it's nice to see him rewarded with the W for his effort. His only black mark came on a 414-foot solo bomb to Michael Morse in the fifth, but he recovered nicely to retire the next three Giants on fly outs. Stults will bring his 4.35 ERA and 1.40 WHIP into Nationals Park on four days rest Thursday. San Diego is on a 39-14-2 run under the total and the under is 20-7-1 in the Padres last 28 road games vs. a team with a winning record. Washington is on a 3-1-1 run under the total at home. Washington starter Jordan Zimmermann also has a fine arm, with a 3.92 ERA and 23 Ks in 20+ innings with only 6 walks. This has all the makings of a real low scoring game. Play San Diego/Washington Under the total.
