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.

2011 Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire Gems: American League

Derrek Lee, 1B Baltimore Orioles (26 percent owned in Yahoo, 28.8 percent in ESPN)

Current Stat Line- .247 AVG / 26 R / 5 HR / 19 RBI / 2 SB

Lee has certainly not lived up to expectations so far in 2011 but his bat seems to be coming alive. In the past seven games Lee has hit .438 with five XBH and six runs. He has been shuffled between the fourth and sixth spot in the lineup so if he can stay healthy, he should help your team in AVG and RBI.

Today’s Games (4/9/11)
 
New York Yankees (+134) @ Boston Red Sox (-144) My Pick: New York Yankees Money Line  +134
I’m not a huge Buchholz fan and +134 straight up for the Yankees is just too good. Cano, Jeter, A Rod and Teixeira are hitting a combined .388 with 3 home runs off of Buchholz.
 
(Game 1) Texas Rangers (-113) @ Baltimore Orioles (+103) My Pick: Texas Rangers Money Line -113
With injuries to JJ Hardy and Brian Roberts, the Orioles are a little dinged up at the moment. Since this is the first game of a double-header, Showalter will need to keep Zach Britton in the game as long as possible so he doesn’t run out of relief pitchers.
 
St. Louis Cardinals @ San Francisco Giants (Over/Under 6.5) My Pick: Over -120
It’s rare to see an over/under as low as 6.5 runs. As good as Jamie Garcia was last year, he was bad on the road with a 3.82 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP. Matt Cain has had struggles with St. Louis in his career. In 5 starts he is sporting a 4.71 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP. On top of all this, Brian Wilson and Ryan Franklin have been terrible!
 
 
Thursday’s Results
 
Toronto Blue Jays: LOSS -100
 Why did Romero have to leave the game?!?!
 
Atlanta Braves: LOSS -100
Hanson was a disappointment again. Only three strikeouts in two starts?
 
Daily Total: -200
 
Brian “Killboy” Kilpatrick is currently up +368 imaginary dollars in 2011.
