Burdge: What I’m Betting on Friday, May 26

Shohei Ohtani o0.5 HRs (+500, BetMGM)

Ohtani has 12 home runs so far this season with three of them in his last seven games. Jesus Luzardo is starting for the Marlins tonight and in Ohtani’s four career at-bats against him, he has one home run. So he’s done it before and I think he can do it again here. 

Red Sox ML at Diamondbacks (-140, DraftKings)

It is Chris Sale Day and he has been on his game, so I think he will be sharp once again here and lead the Red Sox to a win. The Diamondbacks are starting Brandon Pfaadt (0-1, 7.65 ERA), who has given up 17 runs in his four MLB starts, so I think the Red Sox can get back on track with a win here tonight over Arizona.

Celtics-Heat o211 (-110, FanDuel)

We’ve got a Game 6 back in Miami and I think this will be a higher scoring than the last two and will go over this total. The under has hit in the last two games, with 207 in Game 5, but they scored 215 in Game 4 to go over this total and that was also in Miami. Game 3 in Miami also went over this total with 230 points. The Celtics are averaging 117.2 points per game and the Heat are averaging 109.9 points per game, and I think they will live up to those averages in this one and go over this total.
