As we went 2/2 on MLB yesterday with 1 bet voided by a late run in the last inning. I find myself on a hot streak even tho I didn’t have quite the best feeling about my picks yesterday as I knew some of them would be close as the void showed. Today I haven’t got alot of time on my hands so I’ll try to summarize shortly todays 3 picks.
Current streak: 5
Philadelphia Phillies (Cliff Lee) – New York Mets (Dillon Gee) (April 10th | 01:05)
Todays first pick is picked for the following reasons: 1) The great odds. 2) The Mets are hot and the Phils are not. 3) The Phillies has had trouble getting runs while the Mets have been pounding in run after run. #Value
Our pick: New York Mets
Odds: 2.70 @ B365
Washington Nationals (Gio Gonzalez) – Chicago White Sox (Jake Peavy) (April 10th | 01:05)
1) Interleague play advantage Nationals as they play at home. Should have a clear advantage over the White Sox 2) Gio Gonzalez on the mound for the Nats winning a total of 21 games last year. 3) The Nationals in great shape with one of the best collective teams in baseball, was last year the team with the most wins. 4) The Nats are great at home going 50-31 last season, only the Yankees had a better record. 5) The Nats went 69-45 vs right handed pitching while the White Sox went 23-24 against lefthanders.
Our pick: Washington Nationals -1.5
Odds: 2.40 @B365
Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (CJ Wilson) – Oakland Athletics (Jarrod Parker) (April 10th | 04:05)
Todays main pick will be the Angels who haven’t gotten off to the best of starts even tho the expectations for the team are extreme. This will be their home-opener and I believe they’ll be hungry to impress the Los Angeles crowd with new signings such as Josh Hamilton and Chris Iannetta. 1) The Angels won 8/10 against Oakland at home last season. 2) Albert Pujols seems to be in shape 3) It is unclear if Cespedes and Reddick will start for the A’s. If they don’t it will be a huge loss for the A’s starting lineup. 4) The Angels has had two rough opening series against though opponents in the Reds and the Rangers. The A’s has had two easy opening series against the Astros and the Mariners.
Our pick: Los Angeles Angels -1.5
