Play Type: Top Premium

At 10:05 PM ET on Thursday, we will be playing the money-line on the San Jose Sharks (58) versus the Vegas Golden Knights (57). THE SITUATION: Vegas (46-33-7) seized a commanding 3-1 lead in this series on Tuesday with their 5-0 shutout victory over the Sharks (47-30-7). This series returns to San Jose tonight for Game Five with the Sharks looking to stave off elimination.

REASONS TO TAKE SAN JOSE WITH THE MONEY-LINE: Vegas has been dominant over their last three games as they have outscored the Sharks by a 16-6 margin. They have won all three of these games by at least two goals. But the Golden Knights have then lost 6 of their last 8 games after winning their last two games at home by at least two goals. Vegas has also lost 6 of their last 8 games after scoring at least four goals in two straight games. Now the Golden Knights go back on the road where they are just 20-21-2 this season while allowing 3.2 Goals-Per-Game. Goalie Marc-Andre Fleury was not as effective on the road during the regular season where he had a 2.64 Goals-Against-Average along with a .908 save percentage as compared to his 2.40 GAA and .917 save percentage when playing at home. Vegas has lost 5 of their last 6 games on the road. The Golden Knights have also lost 10 of their last 12 road games when priced and an underdog in the +110 to +150 price range. Furthermore, the Golden Knights have lost 11 of their last 18 games when playing on the road with the Total set at 6. San Jose was undermanned on Tuesday with Joe Thornton suspended and defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic still injured from taking a puck to the body early in Game Two. Getting Thornton back not only re-establishes the center on their third-line back while allowing Joe Pavelski to return to right wing on the top line but it also sees the heart and soul leader of this squad back on the ice. Vlasic’s return is even more critical because it allows head coach Peter DeBoer to become flexible with his defensive pairings. The Vegas “second” line of Mark Stone, Max Pacioretty, and Paul Stastny has been destroying the Sharks and both their goaltenders. Back on home ice, DeBoer gets the final choice to place his best pure defender in Vlasic on the ice to counter that outstanding line with the option of pairing him with either Erik Karlsson or Brent Burns. That, of course, frees up the third defenseman to anchor the second defensive pairing which can play more aggressively. The soft underbelly of this Vegas team is last year’s top line of William Karlsson, Jonathan Marchessault and Reilly Smith have regressed so significantly from last year that they are playing closer to what the original projections of what that line would be for an expansion team. San Jose remains a very good team who took the Golden Knights to six games in last year’s playoffs before acquiring Karlsson in the offseason. The Sharks have won 37 of their last 55 games after a loss by at least three goals — and this includes them winning thirteen of their last fourteen games when playing at home after a loss by at least three goals. Back home in San Jose, the Sharks are 26-12-3 this season where they are scoring 3.6 Goals-Per-Game and outscoring their guests by +0.7 Goals-Per-Game. San Jose has won 10 of their last 14 home games against teams with a losing record on the road. Martin Jones will get the start between the pipes again tonight after being pulled in two of the last three games. While Jones has a history of inconsistent play during the regular season, he did enter this postseason with a .926 career save percentage in 42 playoff games which included a run to the Stanley Cup Finals three years ago.

FINAL TAKE: The Sharks have won 8 of their last 9 games when looking to avenge an upset loss to their opponent. San Jose has also won 5 of their last 6 games when playing with revenge from a loss by at least four goals to their opponent. And in their last 16 opportunities to snap a losing streak of at least three games to their opponent, the Sharks have won 11 of those contests. 25* NHL Pacific Division Game of the Year with the money-line on the San Jose Sharks (58) versus the Vegas Golden Knights (57). Best of luck for us — Frank.

At 9:05 PM ET on Thursday, we will be playing Under the Total in the game between the Denver Nuggets (545) and the San Antonio Spurs (546). THE SITUATION: Denver (55-29) evened this series at 1-1 on Tuesday with their 114-106 victory over the Spurs (49-35). This series moves to San Antonio for Games Three and Four.

REASONS TO TAKE UNDER THE TOTAL: The Nuggets have played 13 of their last 16 games Under the Total after a straight-up win. They rallied to win that game by making 48.3% of their shots which was the best shooting effort in their last five games. Denver now goes on the road where they have played 10 of their last 14 games Under the Total — and they have also played 10 of their last 14 road games Under the Total against teams with a winning percentage over 60% on their home court. Additionally, the Nuggets have played of their last 6 games Under the Total against teams with a winning record — and they have played 10 of their last 13 games Under the Total as an underdog getting 3.5 to 9.5 points. Furthermore, Denver has played 14 of their last 20 games Under the Total against fellow Western Conference opponents. San Antonio has played 10 of their last 11 games Under the Total against Western Conference foes. The Spurs have also played 5 of their last 7 games Under the Total after a straight-up win — and they have played 8 of their last 10 games Under the Total after a point spread loss. Now this team returns home where they have played 10 of their last 13 games Under the Total — and they have paled 6 of their last 7 home games Under the Total against teams with a losing record on the road. San Antonio has been playing better defense as they are allowing only 101.2 PPG over their last five games on 43.8% shooting from the field by their opponents — as compared to their 109.9 PPG and opponent’s field goal percentage of 46.3% for the season.

FINAL TAKE: The Spurs have played 23 of their last 34 games Under the Total when avenging a loss where their opponent scored at least 100 points. These two teams have played 24 of their last 33 games Under the Total when playing in San Antonio. 10* NBA Denver-San Antonio NBA-TV O/U Special with Under the Total in the game between the Denver Nuggets (545) and the San Antonio Spurs (546).

At 8:05 PM ET on Thursday, we will be playing the Brooklyn Nets (544) plus the points versus the Philadelphia 76ers (543). THE SITUATION: Philadelphia (52-32) bounced-back from their opening game upset loss to Brooklyn (43-41) on Monday by trouncing the Nets by a 145-123 score. With this series tied at 1-1, this series moves to Brooklyn for the third and fourth games.

REASONS TO TAKE THE NETS PLUS THE POINTS: Philadelphia went into halftime with a narrow 65-64 lead before going on a 20-2 run which led to a 51-point outburst in the 3rd quarter which blew that game wide open. The Sixers ended up shooting 56.1% from the field which was the best shooting effort in their last 28 games. Unfortunately for this team, a letdown is likely — and they have failed to cover the point spread in 6 of their last 8 games after scoring at least 125 points in their last game. Philly has failed to cover the point spread in 5 of their last 6 games after a double-digit victory — and they have failed to cover the point spread in 13 of their last 18 games after winning a game by at least 15 points. The 76ers have also failed to cover the point spread in 5 of their last 6 games after a straight-up win — and they have failed to cover the point spread in 4 of their last 5 games after a point spread victory. Philadelphia out-rebounded the Nets by a decisive 62 to 41 margin on Monday — but they have failed to cover the point spread in 6 of their last 7 games after out-rebounding their last opponent by at least 20 boards. Now this team goes on the road where they were just 20-21 this season with an average losing margin of -2.7 PPG. Making baskets is an issue as the Sixers shot just 45.6% from the field away from home as compared to their 47.1% mark overall. Philly has failed to cover the point spread in 5 of their last 7 games on the road — and they have failed to cover the point spread 10 of their last 13 road games as a favorite laying no more than 6 points. Brooklyn should respond with a strong effort as they have covered the point spread in 9 of their last 12 games after a straight-up loss — and they have covered the point spread in 13 of their last 19 games after a point spread loss. The Nets need to work as hard as they did in their Game One victory. Not only was their being out-rebounded evidence of a lack of effort but the also allowed the Sixers to post the higher opponent’s field goal percentage they have allowed all season. Philly head coach Brett Brown had a halftime tirade with his team after they allowed Brooklyn to attempt 23 shots from behind the arc. While the Sixers worked harder in the second half to limit the Nets to just 13 shots from 3-point land, those efforts come at the expense of their Pick-and-Roll defense that has stymied them this season. D’Angelo Russell and 6th man extraordinaire, Spencer Dinwiddie, have both torched the Sixers throughout the season through the Pick-and-Roll who have to choose between defending the potential dribble-penetrator or a wide open 3-point shooter. Brooklyn returns home for this franchise to host their first home game in the playoffs in four years — and they have covered the point spread in 14 of their last 23 home games with the Total set in the 220s. The Nets have scored at least 105 points in thirteen straight games — and they have then covered the point spread in 21 of their last 30 games after scoring at least 105 points in three straight games.

FINAL TAKE: Brooklyn has covered the point spread in 21 of their last 30 games when playing with revenge from a same-season loss. Look for a close game that the Nets have an opportunity of winning outright — but take the points for some insurance. 10* NBA Thursday Daily Discounted Deal with the Brooklyn Nets (544) plus the points versus the Philadelphia 76ers (543). Best of luck for us — Frank.

At 10:35 PM ET on Thursday, we will be playing the Golden State Warriors (547) minus the points versus the Los Angeles Clippers (548). THE SITUATION: Los Angeles (49-35) evened this series at 1-1 on Monday with their epic 31-point comeback to stun Golden State (58-26) by a 135-131 score as a 14-point underdog. The Clippers host Game Three and Game Four at the Staples Center.

REASONS TO TAKE THE WARRIORS MINUS THE POINTS: The biggest enemy for this Golden State team often this season has been complacency — and that is exactly what stung them on Tuesday. The Warriors simply stopped playing defense in the second half. The lazy takeaway from the Clippers’ miraculous comeback would be something about Offensive Efficiencies of the modern game. Wrong — Los Angeles only made five 3-pointers in the second half which is right at their season average. Fourteen layups accounting for 28 easy points played a bigger role in the Clippers comeback. Golden State allowed Los Angeles to shoot 56.5% from the field which was the highest opponent’s field goal percentage they have allowed all season. That should help head coach Steve Kerr get his team’s attention — at least for one game. As it is, the Warriors have covered the point spread in 5 of their last 6 games after a straight-up loss — and they have covered the point spread in 4 of their last 5 games after a point spread setback. The other piece of bad news from Tuesday was the likely season-ending quad injury to DeMarcus Cousins. I was never as enamored with this move as many of the NBA punditry were. Kerr will insert Andrew Bogut into the starting lineup as he was an intriguing late-season acquisition that now appears very important. Kerr can also use big man Kevon Looney — and he also has the good ole Hampton’s Five lineup of Andre Iguodala playing with the big four of Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green. The extra day off should help Kerr game plan for life without Cousins — his team has covered the point spread in 5 straight games when playing with two days of rest. The Warriors were a great road team this season where they tended to play a bit harder on defense. They hold their home hosts to just 43.9% shooting which is below their season average opponent’s field goal percentage. Golden State is 27-14 on the road this year with an average winning margin of +6.3 PPG. The Warriors have covered the point spread in 5 of their last 7 road games against teams with a winning record on their home court. Shooting has not been an issue for this team as of late as they are making a remarkable 51.1% of their shots over their last five games. This is usually the time in the playoffs where the two-time defending champions shine. Golden State has covered the point spread in 27 of their last 37 games in the Western Conference Quarterfinals — and they have covered the point spread in 7 of their last 8 third games of a playoff series. Los Angeles has failed to cover the point spread in 10 of their last 13 third games of a playoff series under head coach Doc Rivers — and they have failed to cover the point spread in 15 of their last 20 games when tied in a playoff series. A letdown is likely for the Clippers as they have failed to cover the point spread in 5 straight games when playing with two days of rest. Los Angeles enjoyed their best shooting effort in that game in their last seven contests. But the Clippers are 26-15 on their home court where they are only outscoring their opponents by +3.3 PPG. Los Angeles has failed to cover the point spread in 9 of their last 13 home games against teams with a winning percentage over 60% on the road.

FINAL TAKE: Golden State has covered the point spread in 8 of their last 11 opportunities to avenge an upset loss where they double-digit favorites on their home court. That simply does not happen very often. 25* NBA Pacific Division Game of the Year with the Golden State Warriors (547) minus the points versus the Los Angeles Clippers (548). Best of luck for us — Frank.
