Portland and Houston played to a 122-120 final in overtime in Game 1 on Sunday night.  The game went Over the total thanks to overtime as the teams were tied at 106 at the end of regulation.  However, the pace of that game was extremely fast, and the teams combined to take 202 shots from the field.  The reason the game wasn’t higher scoring in regulation was due to the poor shooting and missed free throws.  Portland only shot 43.3% (42-97) from the field and 33.3% (9-27) from three-point land.  Houston only shot 41.0% (43-105) from the field and 22.9% (8-35) from three-point land.  The Blazers and Rockets also combined to miss 24 free throws after getting to the line a total of 79 times.  All four regular season games were also played at a fast pace as they averaged 100.2 possessions per game.  The winning team scored 111 points or more in every game, and both teams scored 101 points or more in all four games.  Those trends continued in Game 1 of this playoff series, and there’s no reason they won’t repeat once again tonight. 

Portland played fast all season as they averaged 97.5 possessions per game which ranked them #10 in the NBA.  Houston played at a faster pace this season as they averaged 98.8 possessions per game which ranked them #5 in the NBA.  These two teams have their most success when playing up-tempo basketball, and that’s not going to change.  Over their last five games, the Blazers’ offense has been terrific in averaging 112.4 points per game on 46.0% shooting from the field and 38.5% shooting from three-point land.  Over their last five games, the Rockets have averaged 109 points per game.  Both defenses have been poor over their last five games with Portland allowing 107.8 points per game and Houston allowing 108.2 points per game.  With two strong offenses playing at a fast pace, we expect another high-scoring game between the Blazers and Rockets on Wednesday night.

Kyle Lohse is putting together another good season as his Brewers host the Padres on Wednesday night.  Lohse is 3-1 with a 2.67 ERA in four starts.  Lohse has only given up 2 runs and 10 hits in his last two starts against the Padres.  He has good numbers against Yonder Alonso (2-8), Everth Cabrera (1-12) and Seth Smith (0-8).  San Diego got the win on Tuesday, but they only scored 2 runs.  The Padres have gone six straight games scoring 3 runs or less, and seven of their last eight games have gone Under the total.

San Diego’s Tyson Ross has improved in his last two starts, giving up 1 run and 10 hits in 15 innings of work.  Ross beat the Brewers in Milwaukee last year after giving up 1 run and two hits in six innings.  Milwaukee has scored just 8 total runs in their last three games and 22 total runs in their last eight home games.  They are a perfect 11-0 to the Under at home this season.  These two teams have gone Under the total in 8 of their last 12 meetings in Milwaukee, and we expect another low-scoring game on Wednesday night.

9* Play UNDER the total.

Texas and Oakland wrap up their 3-game series on Wednesday afternoon.  The Rangers’ Martin Perez has solid numbers so far this season, but he has been pitching at home.  Things will be different this afternoon in Oakland, especially since Perez is 2-3 with a 5.79 ERA in five career starts against Oakland.  The Athletics are 8-1 in day games while putting up 5 runs per game; they are hitting .281 as a team.  The Rangers’ bullpen has been abysmal on the road posting a 4.94 ERA this season.

Normally, I do not look to play favorites in this high of a price range, however Oakland's Sonny Gray remains extremely underrated.  My power ratings make Oakland a -220 favorite in this game today, so we get tremendous value which equates to a 7% long-term expected ROI (return on investment) at the current line.  Gray has been the team ace so far this season and he has given up just 5 earned runs and 25 hits in 25 innings of work.  Gray has only faced one hitter in the Texas lineup, and that gives him the edge in this game.  Texas is too inconsistent of an offense to give Gray much of a struggle in this game.  The 24-year old has been incredible in his first 16 MLB appearances, dating back to his debut last July, with a 2.43 ERA and a dominating 1.18 WHIP and .226 BAA.  We expect Oakland to notch a solid home win in this game on Wednesday afternoon.
