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 7/29/11
Boston Red Sox (-105) @ Chicago White Sox (-105) My Pick: Boston Red Sox Money Line
I know Gavin Floyd is 5-0 in his career against the Red Sox and Tim Wakefield is terrible. I also know the White Sox had a day off yesterday and the Red Sox had to play at home. None of this matters to me. If you are giving me the Red Sox at -105, I’m taking them regardless of the matchup. I would even take the Red Sox if my Grandmother pitched for them, and she’s dead.
Colorado Rockies (+111) @ San Diego Padres (-121) My Pick: San Diego Money Line
Colorado has lost four of their last five road starts and are only 11-19 in their last 30 overall. Jason Hammel has been pretty bad with a 2-4 record and 6.98 ERA in his last seven. Tim Stauffer needs to start being recognized as a good starting pitcher. In his last seven he is 4-3 with a 2.62 ERA.
Results from 7/22/11
