Determining when to bet against the point spread and when to use the moneyline isn’t necessarily easy.

The NBA has seen favorites cover the point spread more than the underdogs have during the past few seasons. Between the 2010-11 and 2012-13 seasons, betting $100 on every favorite of 2 to 10 points would have shown a loss of $5,740.

Top Play for Today Day 4

Balance at $1112.00 
Toronto at Cleveland    I see the broom coming out 

Toronto ML /1.95  2 Unit Play   

B.Morrow  vs C.Carassco 

Looking for B.Jay`s to sweep the tribe with Morrow dominating the game over Carrasco who can`t hit the side of a barn. His E.R.A is up in the 7`s Carrasco, will and is ,getting torched by Chicago W.S and a loss to Minny to bring him to 0 -2 for the season..Batter`s are hitting in the 300 range off him and ,i`m looking for the same Sunday ...Look for a 10 - 4 score Final 
Over @ Out @GL

B.Morrow  this year throwing better with each game and look for it to continue... 14.2 inning with 17 strikeouts ,he is getting it back together following last year`s injury in his forearm .So look for him to win this game against a poor pitcher 
Game on
