Killin’ The Odds & the Regular Season
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 7/8/11
Arizona Diamondbacks (+110) @ St. Louis Cardinals (-120) My Pick: Arizona Diamondbacks Money Line
The Dbacks have been pretty decent on the road (25-22 overall) winning four of their last six away from Chase Field. I am a huge believer in Ian Kennedy even though he was destroyed by the Cardinals in April. Kennedy has been an ace this year and he has had good numbers on the road (5-1, 3.23 ERA, 1.26 WHIP). The Cards have lost four of their last six overall and Kyle Lohse has shown his true colors recently. In his past six starts Lohse has gone 1-3 with a 4.89 ERA and he is only 2-3 overall at home. Lohse’s overall line (8-5, 2.97 ERA, 1.04 WHIP) is still very good so that may be why the Dbacks are getting a good price.
