MLB April 8th-9th

As we went 3/3 in yesterdays picks lets hope we got a streak going. I don’t feel all comfortable with todays games so I’ll give you 3 lower unit bets. I’ve decided to pick matches that aren’t starting at the same time so I can focus on each game in a mannerly fashion. I wish us all luck tonight! 🙂

St. Louis Cardinals (Jaime Garcia) – Cincinnati Reds (Mat Latos) (April 8th | 22:15)

Todays first pick is played for two reasons. The first, here we got two offensive powerhouses who can drive in runs galore. The second is the good value in the odds. The Reds impressed everyone in their matchup against the Nationals especially when they brought six earned runs on Stephen Strasburg (!!!) So if I should pick a winner here I would say the Reds but I prefer to bet that this game goes over 8.0

Our pick: Over 8.0 runs
Odds: 2.05 @ B365
Units: 1


Texas Rangers (Alexi Ogando) – Tampa Bay Rays (Jeremy Hellickson) (April 9th | 02:05)

Both teams here are able to both close down other teams and break open defenses. Therefore this is a risky bet, but I still believe there is value here. Yesterday there was alot of wind in Arlington which brought regular fly balls to become Homeruns if they were hit in the right area of the field. I don’t know how the conditions are today. Still we here have two decent pitchers. Hellickson was raped his last time around giving up five earned runs over 6.1 innings. It’s worth noting that it was against the powerful Orioles. I think he’ll be back in last years shape in todays outing. The two main reasons for this pick is the high line and the great odds. #Value

Our pick: Under 9.0 runs
Odds: 1.90 @ B365
Units: 2

San Francisco Giants (Madison Bumgarner) – Colorado Rockies (Jorge De La Rosa) (April 9th | 04:15)

The Rockies has gotten off to a great start 5-1 while the Giants has struggled in some of their starts. It should be said that the Giants have faced two though opponents while the Rockies has been a little bit luckier with their matchup as they faced the Padres and the Brewers to open the season. Here there is a huge difference in the opening pitcher. Madison Bumgarner is one of the best pitching prospects there are going 16-11 last season and got off to a perfect start against the Dodgers giving up zero earned runs in 8.0 innings of work. Lets hope for another stellar performance from the lefthander as his opponent is the opposite. A struggling veteran, who only lasted 4.1 innings last game with an ERA of 8.31. This could get ugly, if it’s going to get ugly you need Pablo Sandoval and Buster Posey to heat up so this one is also a bit risky as the Giants have been a little bit inconsistent and struggling offensively.

Our pick: San Francisco Giants -1.5
Odds: 2.35
Units: 3
