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 6/21/11
Minnesota Twins (+137) @ San Francisco Giants (-147) My Pick: Minnesota Twins Money Line
It’s hard to believe the Twins still are not getting any respect. In their past 16 games, they are 14-2 yet we are still seeing them as huge dogs. The Giants have lost their last 4 and have only averaged 2.7 runs per game in their last 10. Carl Pavano has only given up 4 ER in his last 25 IP and the Giants are 25-28 against right-handed starters. Bumgarner has been no slouch himself but the Twins have a 11-10 record against left-handed starters with their overall record at 31-39. This game should remain close so +137 is too good to pass up.
Results from 6/15/11
Minnesota Twins (+120): WIN +120
Pavano has been looking good recently.
San Francisco Giants (+101): WIN +101
Bumgarner looked good too.
Tampa Bay Rays (+120): Loss -100
We held them to three runs but I disrespected Beckett.
New York Mets (+128): WIN +128
The rain delay scared me but we still two-hit them!
Daily Total: +249
Brian “Killboy” Kilpatrick is 7-1, +656 imaginary dollars since June 8th.
