JB's MLB Picks
Ah ok I thought so, thanks Hiltzy!
Kirby- I'd go with Hiltzy's advise. I don't have Bet365 so don't know about the interface. If all else fails, call customer service to find out how to make that wager. For the next couple of weeks, I'll be doing a lot of First 5 innings, until we have a better feel for relief pitching (a/k/a the bullpen)
JB, I have a feeling the white sox will print for us early and often this year. Let's ride the wave as long as we can. Great work thus far.
Thanks, Sharks! Good luck to us this evening as soon as this rain stops.
Both bets cash today for an additional 1.54 units.
We are now up 2.93 units on the year.
Btw- hyppen asked a great question that mostly applies to Europeans...these bets are not three way bets, they are draw no action....we definitely want our money back if the game goes to a tie at the end of the 5 innings.
The Rangers line at +175 seems wide to me. Braves are also due here vs Philly.. Two interesting lines to consider.
Cheers Sharks! Thanks for the tips...I'll take a harder look at those.
About to post my play for today.
Today's Baseball Bet
Reds -130 First Five Innings Only over the struggling Diamondbacks. Many reasons I love this play. Let's start with the struggling DBacks. They are hitting .205 against righties (those numbers include a +.400 avg by their star Marte who is injuryed) and are facing Jeff Hoffman, a right handed pitcher who just picked up a win after giving up only one run and 5 hits against the Cardinals. On the other hand, the Reds offense is red hot. They are smashing the baseball, including a .324 average against righties. The Reds face right hander, Riley Smith who gave up 3 runs (2 earned) in five innings against the Padres. Smith is an unproven starter and the Diamondbacks are really slumping. Only going first 5 innings because both teams went deep in the bullpen last night and the relievers were a shit show for the Reds. When the lineups come out, I may go 2u. For now:
Reds -130 First Five Innings
Would have gone 1-1, rangers couldn’t produce vs the padres. For some reason my message seems to have posted quite late, strange.
Starting lineups are out. Reds full strength. 2u for me First Five Innings Reds -130
2-1 lead into the bottom of the 5th and Reds just lost their shit. Brutal. 0.93 unit profit on the year. Back to the drawing board tomorrow.
Time to shake off yesterday and get back on the horse. Two plays- not enough time for the analysis
Boston Red Sox -140 First Five Innings
Pirates +115 First Five Innings
1unit each. Good luck
Last second play, taking Yankees/Rays O 8.5 based upon power hitters v. pitching matchups. 1U
