After last week I believe I'm now 8-7 on the season. Positive record and I'm on hot streak as well, so hopefully I can keep on rolling today. I picked all 8 o'clock or later starts for my picks today, so don't feel panicked to get them in before 7. With that being said, here's today's picks:
Take St.Louis -1.5 tonight over the Brewers, at +145 it's the steal of a lifetime. The Brewers are cooling down and the Cardinals are heating up, so this one is going to be a blowout. Mike Wacha had a great April and I don't see any reason that'll change. Zach Davies had an awful April and I don't see any reason for that to change. Cardinals by a million tonight, if you don't take them, it's like walking away from free money.
Kansas City -1.5 against Chicago with Kansas City's best pitcher taking the mound is a no brainer. At +110 it shows just how sure Vegas is that Kansas City is gonna cover. Vargas has nearly half the Royals wins all by himself, shows just how bad the Royals been, but how good Vargas has been as well. White Sox have overachieved so far this season and the Royals have underachieved so far this season, look for that to change tonight.
Clayton Kershaw is pitching tonight so you already know I'm taking the Dodger no matter what the odds are. Dodger are -1.5 at +106, meaning Vegas is not giving you much incentive to take them. Against Cueto tonight I don't expect many runs from either side, but the Dodgers lineup is far better than the Giants, so I expect them to win pretty soundly tonight actually. Take the Dodgers. I think I'm going 3-0 tonight, feel really good about these matchups.
