Got off to a good start yesterday, hoping to continue. There's a lot to like tonight. Won't do write-ups every day, but today I've got time so what the hell.
Dodgers +100 1 / 1
(Lilly has pitched well. CarGo absolutely smashes Lilly, but he's the only one on the roster that does. I'll take my chances with Ted. And oh, did I mention the best hitter in baseball is playing in Colorado?)
Mets -130 1 / .7692
(J.A. Happ is the proud owner of a 4.70 ERA / 1.52 WHIP, and is facing a team that (recent past / present) have hit .327 off of him. David Wright has 3HR and 2 doubles off of Happ in 13AB against Happ...I'd say he's got his number. Niese has pitched well, and I'm counting on that to continue. This would have been my first hammer, but I've got another quarter on this in the parlay below, and figure that's enough. Call me conservative).
Twins / Angels O8.5 +100 1 / 1
(Liriano is a gas can, and Williams has a lot of potential to do the same. I'll take my chances with the bats in this one. Plus I like the even odds.)
A's RL +1.5 -140 .5 / .3571
(Call me crazy, but I like this Parker kid. He's played well at every level, and Doubront will give any team a chance to stay in it. I'll take the point and a half for a relatively decent line, if they even play the game [90% chance of rain]).
A's / Red Sox U9 +100 .5 / .5
(I've had a good bit of success going under on games AFTER a team has had a double digit score in the game prior. Don't know what the odds are on this, so call it a hunch. This is also factoring in Parker potentially having a good game, and the A's bats doing just enough to put only a couple of points on the board.)
Giants -143 / Rays -202 / Mets -130 Parlay .25 / .8737
(Cain vs Mia at home / Matt Moore vs. Noesi and the abysmal Mariners / Mets vs. Happ. Didn't have a Parlay yet, so I've got this out of the way.)
GL to all tonight!
