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 6/28/11
Texas Rangers -1.5 (-110) @ Houston Astros +1.5 (-110) My Pick: Houston Astros Run Line
I love a home team that’s getting +1.5 runs at -120 or better. When these two teams faced in Arlington last week, the series was actually pretty close. Texas took the series 2-1 but, they won in extras on June 21st. We all know of Texas’ road woes (18-22) and they are breaking even against right-handed starters (27-27). Jordan Lyles is a bit of a wild card but you have to love his K:BB ratio of 26:6. Houston fares well against left-handed pitching (12-11) and the last time they faced CJ Wilson, they hit him well (11 hits in 6.2 IP).
Results from 6/24/11
Pittsburgh Pirates +1.5 (-115): WIN +87
I should have taken them straight up but, I going to play it safe against a good team like Boston.
Daily Total: +87
Brian “Killboy” Kilpatrick is 9-1, +880 imaginary dollars since June 8th!
