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 (5/27/11)
St. Louis Cardinals (+144) @ Colorado Rockies (-154) My Pick: Cardinals Money Line
Here I go again picking on the Rockies and taking the Cards’ on the road. The Cards’ have won 8 of their last 10 and are 16-12 on the road. The Rockies are surprisingly average at home with a record of 12-13 and have only 1 win in their last 7. Ubaldo went 8 IP/ 2 ER in his last start but, he gave up 5 BB. Westbrook has 5 quality starts in his last 6.
Cleveland Indians (+153) @ Tampa Bay Rays (-163) My Pick: Indians Money Line
I’m not sure what Josh Tomlin has been eating or drinking (or the entire Indians squad), but give me some! All 9 of Tomlin’s starts have been quality starts this year and they haven’t been bad on the road (11-11). On the other hand, the Rays are worse at home (11-13) and David Price has given up 10 ER in his last 2 starts (11.2 IP). Overall, the Rays have only 1 win in their last 6.
Results from 5/25/11
St. Louis Cardinals (-112): LOSS -100
As predicted, Carpenter looked good but Latos was better.
Arizona Diamondbacks (+113): WIN +113
The DBacks are HOTTTT but I’m not in love with their line tonight (-130 on the road). People must be catching on.
Daily Total: +13
