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 7/22/11
Atlanta Braves (-112) @ Cincinnati Reds (+102) My Pick: Atlanta Braves Money Line
Jurrjens got lit up on Sunday against Washington (5 IP, 6 ER) and we are getting a pretty good discount because of it. Jurrjens has been just as good on the road this year (5-2, 1.96 ERA) and so have the Braves (28-22 record). The Braves are 14-6 in their last 20 and 42-27 against right-handed starters. The Reds have not been good. In their last 20 they are 8-12 and Arroyo gave up 5 ER in 3 IP in his last start against Atlanta.
Results from 7/16/11
Cleveland Indians (-117): LOSS -100
Another heart-breaking one run loss.
Daily Total: -100
Brian “Killboy” Kilpatrick is 11-4, +792 imaginary dollars since June 8th!
