Game 1: Golden State Warriors (+102) at Toronto Raptors, 9 p.m. EST
The Warriors have yet to lose a Game 1 of the NBA Finals during the Steve Kerr era. Tonight, they go into Toronto as winners of six straight games and haven't lost with Kevin Durant out of the lineup during the playoffs. Additionally, the Warriors are 29-1 in their last 30 contests when Stephen Curry plays and Durant doesn't. The Warriors are slight underdogs, which is an unfamiliar place for them, but it seems to play into their mantra, especially without Durant. Despite the hype around Toronto, with the way the Warriors are playing along with plenty of rest and the expected return of DeMarcus Cousins, don't be surprised if Golden State wins this one handily.
Game 2: New York Mets at Los Angeles Dodgers (-1.5, -144), 10 p.m. EST
This game is a tale of two pitchers who have had very different starts to the 2019 season. Mets starter' Jason Vargas holds a 1-2 record with a 5.22 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP while Hyun-Jin Ryu has been incredible for the Dodgers this season, going 7-1 with a 1.65 ERA and a 0.83 WHIP. After the disheartening loss suffered by New York last night, one in which they gave up four runs in the ninth, the Dodgers could be riding high on Thursday night.
