ARI D'Backs -1.5  +140

TEX Rangers -1.5  +125

HOU Astros ML +150

The D'Backs and the Rangers are way better than their opponents and I have those games projected to break out early. Why not first 5 innings ML then? Well, I believe more the games will advance more the margin will grow,
In Seattle being a Monday night overshadowed by Pitino - I'd hive the Astros to slide this one because the pitching will balance other deficiencies IMO.

OK, I will give MLB a try, never done it though. :)

SunsDevils 0-0

ARI D'Backs -1.5  +140

Arizona offense has been somewhat hot of late.  Pirates are pretty bad and in their highest scoring game this season, they were able to score just 3 runs. So it looks like taking a better team with -1.5 should be a good value.

lol just my opinion man.. but i would never endorse betting on those 2 teams.. and i truly only mean those 2 teams.. by far the worst teams in baseball in my opinion.. those are the teams where if i actually do think they're going to win, i just stay away from it, move onto the next game..not sure your reasoning as to why you like miami for instance and i know they have to win sometime, but they just can't be trusted 

again just my opinion, admire the balls for trying though sir  good luck tomorrow man!

I did try to explain what logic I was using when i made the picks, but I do agree with you on the caliber of these teams.  Sometimes a team just gets outplayed on the intangibles too, whether or not they are the worse team.

Miami blew early chances and allowed Maholm to really get his control down and it was uphill from there.  stranded 4 in the first 3 innings.  When they are playing good, the Under seems to be the play more than the ML.  These guys just looked bad with runners on, they tightened up everytime.  

Seattle played great defence, flared some hits into the gaps and  executed a sui squeeze.  They were on tonight.  Houston didnt play bad though and humber threw a lot of strikes and gave them a shot.  Saunders surprised and was the difference maker.  I anticipated him turning it over to pen by the 5th, Instead he was able to have Houston leave 7 on base.

Fortuitous Under in the pirates game gets another 1-2 day.  Shaking it off today!  Thanks for the imput ashylarry!

CJ Willson in the home opener and the Angels cant afford another loss in this spot. They have the better lineup and it should show tonight Look for the LA crowd to get their team motivated tonight.

TB Rays ML +120

Tepesch will be making his debut and it will be no easy task going against this strong TB lineup in a hitters ballpark. I see the rays hitting this young pitcher and coming out with the W

ARI Diamondbacks ML -140

Just chasing the dbacks at home. Cant see them dropping 2 in a row to this Pit team.

WAS Nationals  ML  -157

 

PHI Phillies  ML  -177

 

LA Angels  ML  -154

 

I don't think the Nationals lose too many series this year.  I don't think they lose 2 games in a row too many times.  I especially don't like them to lose 3 of 4.  I believe the Peavy trends against the Nationals do not represent this year's Nationals roster.  Gio is getting better and his statistics against the White Sox, do not reflect his tenor with the Nationals.

 

I know they have not started off the season on the strongest note but would you bet for the Phillies to lose 3 straight with Hamels, Halladay, and Lee on the mound?  Look, I know Lee has to pitch at least 7 innings to protect this win from the bull pen.  I think Lee is a guy who can do that.

 

Home cooking for the Angels.  I imagine it is not easy to start the season in Cincinnati and then travel to Texas.  Now they face the Athletics who are on a 5 game winning streak, in LA.  I hope what we saw this weekend, was the start of their bats coming to life.  I can't see the Angels losing 5 of 6 at any point during the season.

TOR Bluejays ML +121

Brandon Morrow is a very good day pitcher and is the ace of this staff in my opinion. He doesn't give up too many long balls and the Tigers haven't proven to me that they can string together hits consistently.

Under 3.5 1st 5 Inn NY Mets - PHI Phillies -105

Honestly I think this game goes under for the full game, but I like the value I get here by not having to rely on these bullpens. 

Over 7 SF Giants - COL Rockies

Tim might be getting back on track this year, that is still to be seen. This low of a number at the #1 hitters park in the league. Last night with two better pitchers than we are seeing today they put up 6. I like this one to go over, expecting 9-10 runs.
