NBA/MLB Best Bets: August 10
Adam Ronis brings you his best bets for today's NBA and MLB slates
Indiana Pacers at Miami Heat, 8 p.m. ET
Jimmy Butler and T.J. Warren have gone at it this season. Butler said Warren can't guard him, but he can guard Warren. Butler has rested over the last week, while missing three games. Warren scored 39 points over the weekend to beat the Lakers, but he's dealing with a sore foot. He is averaging 34.8 points per game in the bubble. It's a potential playoff preview and the teams will meet again on Thursday. Butler will be motivated for this one and Goran Dragic could return, too. The teams have met twice this season with the Heat winning 122-108 and 113-112. The Heat are 21-7 ATS in their last 28 games after a loss and have lost two straight games.
PICK: Heat -3.5
Arizona Diamondbacks at Colorado Rockies, 8:40 p.m. ET
It must be 2020. The Rockies are pitching well, holding opponents to 3.3 runs per game. Jon Gray is one of the pitchers performing well and he takes the mound. Gray has made three starts and pitched 16.1 innings, allowing 12 hits, four walks, six earned runs and struck out seven. He has a 3.31 ERA and 0.98 WHIP and two of his starts have been at home. Robbie Ray is working on a new delivery and it hasn't worked so far. He is 1-2 with a 9.45 ERA, 1.94 WHIP and allowed 14 earned runs and six home runs in 13.1 innings. The Diamondbacks have struggled against right-handed pitching, while the Rockies are one of the top teams against left-handers.
PICK: Rockies -136
