Wednesday, I went 2-1 after switching to betting the over/under. That brings me to 11-13 on the season. Looking to stay on the winning end of things tonight heading into derby weekend, so we can bet on some horses tomorrow. Let's make money today that we can spend tomorrow.
Astros went off on Wednesday scoring 10 runs only to follow it up the next day by allowing 10 runs. Dallas Keuchel takes the mound for them against the Angels, which means he'll be 6-0 after tonight with an improved ERA. He shouldn't allow many runs if any at all. Hopefully the Astros don't score too much against the Angels pitching staff because we'll be taking the Under in this game. The under is set at 8, lock that in and pray Astros bats don't get too hot tonight.
The Red Sox bats need a coming out party and who better to have it against than the Twins and former Yankees starter Phil Hughes. Twins lineup has a lot of power, so they are always good for a few runs. Red Sox against Phil Hughes is always a good day to pick the over, and at 9 tonight, it's a steal. The Red Sox bats are due for a huge night, meaning the over will hit pretty early, so you won't have to sweat this one out. Red Sox-Twins over tonight is a no brainer.
Blue Jays-Rays, the bottom of the barrel matchup of the night. The only thing that makes this game watchable is gambling and that's exactly why I picked it. The Rays bats this year have actually been doing very well. Guys like Beckham and Morrison have really stepped up. The Blue Jays even with injuries plaguing their lineup are still a team that can put big numbers up on the scoreboard. On the other hand, Chris Archer is pitching tonight, leaving the likely option of him shutting down the Blue Jays wide open. He hasn't been great this year, but I think Archer will be great tonight. Take the under with the line set at 7.5, this is going to be a low scoring affair, well, at least for one side.
