Daily picks are back after quite a long layoff. I went 7-2 last week, that's what I'm talking about, hopefully I can keep that going this week. I've fought long and hard to get my record back to .500 after a bad start to season. Now, I'm back even, and looking to go and stay positive the rest of the season. Not an easy task to say the least, but the baseball season is a grind, and I'm always ready to grind. Let's get back to it.
Red Sox-Cardinals tonight should be a helluva battle, they gave us a good game last night, however tonight's matchup should be even better. Rick Porcello, the reigning AL Cy Young award winner, takes the mound against Mike Leake for the Cardinals. Leake has been a far better pitcher than Porcello this season, I think it's safe to say Porcello is quite a bit overrated. I don't know if Mike Leake can keep this up, but he has for 6 weeks now, so why not. Cardinals are the underdog with the better starting pitcher, so I'll be taking the Cardinals. At -120 it's not a big risk whatsoever and I'm confident they'll even up the series with the Sox tonight.
Rockies are the move tonight against the Twins. Ervin Santana had been unreal for the Twins this season up until his last start. I expect him to comeback down to earth after his unreal start to the season, especially against the Rockies lineup, no pitcher is safe against them. German Marquez is pitching for Colorado, he's coming off his best start, and I expect him to build off that. Rockies are the underdog at -180 it's not a huge payout, but a sure fire win is a sure fire win, right?
Milwaukee over San Diego is a no brainer tonight.The Brew crew has been extremely hot, the bats are killing it, and with Matt Garza pitching I like them a lot. Oh yeah, they're also the underdog, I'll take any team as the underdog against the sad sack Padres. At -190 the return isn't great, but that just shows you how confident Vegas is that Milwaukee will cover.
