Welcome back to Killin’ the Odds & the Regular Season!
In the “Today’s Games” section, you will see my picks to win for the day. I will post either the “Money Line” or the “Run Line”. The money line is always a “straight up” bet which means your team will never need to win or lose by a specific amount of runs. The money line odds represent what amount has to be wagered or what can be won. For example, if there is a minus sign (-) next to an amount, you have to wager that amount to win 100. If there is a plus sign (+) next to an amount, you will receive that amount for every 100 wagered. When you see a “Run Line”, that means a spread is involved. In Baseball, the spread is always 1.5 runs but you can find alternate run lines on some websites. When I post a run line of -1.5, that means our team must win by two runs. When you see a run line of +1.5, that means our team can lose by one run and still win the wager. Listen to our show from April 5th,
2011 for more explanation and tips.
Today’s Games (5/1/11)
Milwaukee Brewers (-121) @ Houston Astros (+111) My Pick: Houston Astros Money Line
Bud Norris has looked good in his 3 starts at home this year (1-0, 2.00 ERA, 19 K, 18 IP) and in his 4 career starts against the Brewers (2-0, 3.09 ERA, 28 K, 23.1 IP). Michael Bourn, Carlos Lee, Brett Wallace and Hunter Pence are a combined 10 for 23 against Narveson with only two strikeouts. The Brewers are only 5-8 on the road and the Astros are 4-4 against left-handed starters.
Results from 4/30/11
Cleveland Indians (-109): WIN + 92
Alex White looked good in his debut but he got a little wild and gave up 2 HR.
Philadelphia Phillies -1.5 (+105): LOSS -100
Victorino was safe at 2nd. Thanks Daniel Murphy.
Daily Total: -8
