The Draft


Talk about parity. Thirty games into the MLB season, everything’s up for grabs: 15 teams are within three games of a division leader.

Making Headlines

NBA: LeBron James is expected to miss the Lakers’ next two games due to an ankle injury, according to multiple reports. Los Angeles is tied with Dallas for fifth in the West, a game ahead of Portland.

MLB: The Blue Jays will begin playing their home games in Buffalo on June 1.

NHL: Sidney Crosby (two goals, assist) recorded his 151st career three-plus-point outing to lift the Penguins over the Flyers 7-3 and into first place in the East Division.

Tonight’s Action

Indians at Royals, 8:10 p.m. ET 

Odds: Indians -165, Royals +143 || O/U 7

Pick: Shane Bieber (3-2, 2.75 ERA) is scheduled to start for Cleveland and will face fellow righthander Brady Singer (1-3, 3.09).

Sports Section likes Bieber to dominate — even at that price — so take the Indians and the under.

Shoutout: Yesterday, we asked subscribers to predict the winner of Oilers-Canucks, the final score, and total points for Edmonton’s Connor McDavid. The Oilers won 4-1 behind McDavid’s two points.

Subscriber David Nagelberg (@SportsGuruDave) had Edmonton winning and correctly predicted two assists for McDavid. Nice work, David!

Keep the picks coming, everyone!
