Getting a great start to the season with 3 consecutive winning days. The earnings haven’t shot through the roof yet but the baseball picks are currently up 4,5 units. Tonight there is yet again alot of action and I’ve chosen the 3 plays I find the best value in! We’ll also try out an handicap-double as we went 2/3 in yesterdays “Hail Mary-attempt” unfortunate that we didn’t put it in a system! 🙂 It’s also worth mentioning how close Yu Darvish came to a perfect game yesterday! He pitched 8.2 innings perfect and on the final out the Houston Astros managed to pick up a base hit! Un-freaking-lucky…
Cincinnati Reds (Mat Latos) – Los Angeles Angels (CJ Wilson) (April 4th | 01:10)
The first pick is the Angels who have improved their offense and is probably considered the strongest offense in the game with strong hitters like Mike Trout, Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton! CJ Wilson is also a good starting pitcher and even tho the Reds has a pretty decent lineup themselves I believe that there is great value in the odds we get here. This play will also figure in the handicap-double as the Angels has the guys to put up a show if they see the ball clearly!
Our pick: Los Angeles Angels
Odds: 2.13 @ B365
Arizona Diamondbacks (Brandon McCarthy) – St. Louis Cardinals (Lance Lynn) (April 4th | 03:40)
The motivator for this pick is that I believe that the Cardinals offense is better than the DBacks and that the starting pitcher Brandon McCarthy gets his home debut and might be a little nervous. That logic could also backfire on me as he could be able to throw the game of his life to impress the home crowd. To add on: the Cardinals also looked alot sharper in yesterdays game and the good odds makes me believe that there is good value here as well! Lance Lynn had a fantastic year last year as well and I’m confident he got what it takes this season as well!
Our pick: St. Louis Cardinals
Odds: 2.04 @ B365
Los Angeles Dodgers (Josh Beckett) – San Francisco Giants (Tim Lincecum) (April 4th | 04:10)
I’ve decided to stick with the Giants here as their starting pitchers have yet to give up a run. Both Matt Cain and Madison Bumgarner has made two quality starts which makes me confident that Tim Lincecum will follow up! Neither Pablo Sandoval nor Buster Posey have driven in a run yet and I believe atleast one of them will give Beckett a hard time and get some quality at bats! Knowing Tim Lincecum this bet has some risk to it as he has the ability to be brilliant but he showed some signs of weakness in a few games last season. I believe he is eager to prove the doubters wrong and get the win at Dodger stadium with a quality start! It is also said that he has gotten rid of his tendency to give up alot of walks which is one of the main reason for his troubles last year! Again, a great value bet but a bit risky.
Our pick: San Francisco Giants
Odds: 2,16 @ B365
Pick 1: Los Angeles Angels (CJ Wilson) -2.5 | 4.25 @ B365
Pick 2: Washington Nationals (Gio Gonzalez) -2.5 | 2.50 @ B365
Combined odds: 10,62
