Went 1-2 on Monday, picked 2 of 3 winning teams, one of them just didn't cover the spread. That brings me to 4-5 on the year. That means it's time to get back to, or above, .500 today. I'm confident in today's selections, so I anticipate nothing less than greatness out of today's picks. On that note, let's get to it.
Yankees-Red Sox is back tonight at 7pm, if you aren't watching you aren't a fan of baseball. If your team happens to be playing at the same time, that sucks for you. The Yankees have young stud Luis Severino taking the mound against the reigning AL Cy Young award winner, Rick Porcello. Red Sox are 1.5 run favorite at +180, with Rick Porcello pitching against basically a rookie at Fenway, only an idiot wouldn't take that. Exactly why I'll go with the Yankees tonight, sometimes sports betting doesn't need to make sense, sometimes you just gotta go with your gut. My gut tends to be pretty biased for the Yankees tonight, oh well, take the Yankees at -200. They haven't let me down yet.
Orioles are returning to their winning ways tonight, the Rays gave them a tough time yesterday, and held the O's lineup down to 0 runs, exactly why I give them no shot today. Oriole's best pitcher Dylan Bundy takes the mound for them against some scrub on the Rays. Take the Orioles as the 1.5 run favorite at +155, it's like stealing candy from a baby I swear.
The Giants have struggled to score all season, meanwhile the Dodgers just can't seem to string a win streak together. Both these teams have been plagued with slow starts out of the gate, so a series win tonight could mean a lot for either team. Giants have Johnny Cueto taking the mound against Alex Wood, definitely advantage Giants in the pitching matchup. As for the lineups we all know anyone is better than the Giants right now, advantage Dodgers. The reason I'll be taking the Giants as 1.5 run underdog is because I'll always take an underdog with the better starting pitcher. At -165 kind of a risk, but you gotta be in it to win it baby.
