Max’s Sports Bet Picks for 5/25/22

Sports Bet Picks for 5/25/22



BOS (-2) at MIA (2)

Pick: Lean MIA

Total: 203.5 (Lean Over – 214)

Predicted Score: BOS 108 – MIA 106

Notes: Boston has alternated between being a dominating force and a flaming pile of garbage.

At times, its easy to get excited about this team and how they play defense, move the ball around and can hit three pointers.

And then there’s the Boston team that fell behind by 26 because of turnovers and poor shot selection.

The good version of Boston is better than the good version of Miami.

Just not sure which versions of these teams we see tonight.

The Heat continue to deal with a slew of injuries.

If Tyler Herro misses the game again their offense takes a pretty big hit.

Kyle Lowry is still hobbling about and even though Butler is not on the injury report, his knee is ever problematic and could limit him tonight.

I think Boston should win this one. And despite their blowout wins in this series, their inconsistent play has my Excel file putting a gun to its head.

I’ll lean Miami with the points.



St. Louis Blues (195) at Colorado Avalanche (-240)

Pick: Lean Colorado

Notes: Well, this series is over. Even the sportsbooks think so.

The Avalanche are back up to their chalky, -$240 lines and looking to get into the Conference Finals to face off, presumably, against Connor McDavid and the Oilers.

The Blues just won’t be the same without Binnington out there.

The past two games has seen Colorado outscore St. Louis by 6 goals.

I can see another bad one today.

Lean on the Avalanche.



MIL (110) at SD (-130)

Pick: Bet $10 SD

Notes: I hit on the Brewers yesterday and now I will fade them today.

In doing so, I will be banking on Yu Darvish to repeat his last performance on the mound.

If you download and listen to every single episode, you would know my feelings about Darvish.

And then if you look at his game-by-game box scores, you’d understand.

Still, when he’s dealing, he’s hard to get a hit off of.

For Milwaukee, they will not have an ace on the mound and instead will have 0-3 Aaron Ashby to start or open or do whatever amount of work he can out there.

I think the Padres bounce back and grab a win today.

$10 bet on San Diego.


BOS (146) at CWS (-174)

Pick: Bet $10 BOS

Notes: I could be a day late on this one but seeing Boston with this big plus line is just too tempting.

Especially against this White Sox team that is still very inconsistent.

Granted, Chicago has fought back to .500 after trending to be a 100-loss team.

And they took 2 of 3 from the mighty Yankees.

And Lucas Giolito has looked like the ace he used to be.

Still, I cannot justify this amount of chalk on a team with such a lackluster offense.

The Red Sox have won 6 in a row and their offense is finally starting to click like last season.

I’ll give them a shot today.

$10 bet on Boston.


TEX (142) at LAA (-168)

Pick: Bet $10 LAA

Notes: Is today the day that Max finally makes a bet on the Texas Rangers?

No. No it is not.

I’m on the Angels here.

After murdering Reid Detmers right here on this show, it’s my time to give him the ultimate apology by backing him today.

Detmers has thrown a no-hitter but then followed up with a shortened start.

My prediction is he will probably go about 5 innings and pitch somewhat competitively to keep Anaheim in this one.

The Angels’ bats will do the rest against Glenn Otto who likes to get blotto.

$10 bet on Anaheim.



COL (106) at PIT (-124)

Pick: Lean PIT


DET (172) at MIN (-205)

Pick: Lean MIN


NYM () at SF ()

Pick: n/a


LAD (-220) at WSH (184)

Pick: Lean LAD


OAK (140) at SEA (-166)

Pick: Lean OAK


CHC (118) at CIN (-138)

Pick: Lean CIN


MIA (168) at TB (-200)

Pick: Lean TB


BAL (168) at NYY (-200)

Pick: Lean NYY


PHI (130) at ATL (-154)

Pick: Lean PHI


CLE (166) at HOU (-198)

Pick: Lean HOU
