The Yankees, Braves, Diamondbacks and Astros were all seeing between 76% and 78% of the action in their respective games.

The Yankees have been dominant over Baltimore but the price was coming in at -250.  No sports handicappers should be offering picks on the Yankees today.

We do have a preview and NHL predictions can be found here for the San Jose Sharks vs. St. Louis Blues.

ABOUT THE SHARKS: While San Jose owns a 4-0 mark in elimination games this postseason, the injury-riddled roster provides an added hurdle if it plans to return to the Stanley Cup for the first time since 2016. "We're still alive," Sharks forward Logan Couture told reporters. "We've been in this spot before, going to Vegas down 3-2 in a very difficult building. St. Louis is similar, it's a tough building against a good team. A structured team." The 30-year-old Couture has six goals and seven points in eight road games this postseason, although he has been held off the scoresheet in back-to-back contests overall.

ABOUT THE BLUES: Jaden Schwartz netted his second hat trick of the 2019 playoffs on Sunday to boost his goal total to 12, which resides one behind Brett Hull's franchise postseason record set in 1980. "That's something you don't really think about before the game," the 26-year-old Schwartz told reporters about getting a hat trick. "You're just kind of preparing the way you usually do and get focused for the game and help the team. Sometimes you get some bounces your way and you never score a goal by yourself. You need your linemates, your D, (Jordan Binnington) to make big saves, timely saves." Binnington has done that, as the 25-year-old made 21 saves for the first shutout by a St. Louis rookie goaltender in the playoffs and has turned aside 50 of 51 shots in his last two contests since yielding five goals on 32 shots in Game 3.
