Every day The Denver Gazette sports staff will publish its best bets:

1.  Rays over Guardians in Wild Card Series (-105): Tampa Bay thrives in the postseason. This season is pretty much a pick'em so I would lean with postseason experience. 

2. Padres over Mets in Wild Card Series (+155): The Padres made all their big moves to succeed in the playoffs. They are the underdog to a Mets team that lost the NL East down the stretch. San Diego could be catching them at the right time. 

3. Max Homa 20-1 to win Shriners Open: Homa has been rolling of late and looks to continue his hot streak going into Las Vegas.
