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 (5/13/11)
St. Louis Cardinals (+103) @ Cincinnati Reds (-113) My Pick: Cardinals Money Line
We all know Lohse has been lucky this year but he has been great on the road (3-0, 1.21 ERA, 0.73 WHIP, 2 BB) and in his last start against the Reds one year ago (7 IP, 1 ER, 8:0). The Cards’ are a good road team (12-7) and have crushed Bronson Arroyo in their last three meetings (0-3, 15.1 IP, 14 ER, 4:8).
Philadelphia Phillies (-104) @ Atlanta Braves (-106) My Pick: Phillies Money Line
I usually don’t like the Phillies when they are facing top pitching prospects but they have already beat Beachy three times. The Phillies are a good road team (11-5) and Cole Hamels has pitched well versus the Braves in his last five appearances (2-1, 2.03 ERA, 33:6).
Results from 5/9/11
