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 8/9/11
Detroit Tigers (+117) @ Cleveland Indians (-127) My Pick: Detroit Tigers Money Line
The Detroit Tigers have been playing like division champs lately and the Indians haven’t looked so hot. The Tigers are 12-8 in their last 20 while the Indians are only 7-13. The Tigers have actually been able to win on the road and hit against right-handed pitching. I think Doug Fister will be successful for the Tigers and he has only given up 3 ER in the 14 IP against them this year. Masterson will be a tricky one to get past but, in his two starts against Detroit this year he has given up 7 R (4 ER) in 13.1 IP and 7 BB.
Los Angeles Angels (+113) @ New York Yankees (-123) My Pick: Los Angeles Angels Money Line
Both of these teams have been on a roll but A.J. Burnett hasn’t. In Burnett’s last six games started he is 0-3 with a 6.00 ERA. Haren has been fantastic giving up only 3 ER in 24.2 in his last 3. These two teams have been pretty evenly matched since 2009 with New York taking the series lead 10-9.
