I played the Astros ML and RL tonight, but did not have enough time to post it so here is what I have for tomorrow.
Nationals ML -260 (1300/500)
Reds ML -110 (550/500)
Phillies ML +112 (500/560)
Royals ML +130 (500/650)
Padres ML +127 (500/635)
Mariners ML -103 (515/500)
Nationals are pitching Strasburg and I think that he has something to prove coming back from his injury last year. Don't over think this one.
Reds are my home town team so I may be slightly biased on this one. Cueto is on the mound against Weaver so I expect a really good game here. If the Reds can get on the board first or secure a lead through 7 the bullpen should be good enough to lock it down. Cold temperatures could mean some low scoring baseball in this one. I think the Reds pull this one out at home in front of a big crowd.
As for the Phillies, I like the value in this one. Cole Hamels has the chance to be an ace this year, and this should be a very entertaining game to watch in my mind.
Royals +130 is good enough for me. Chris Sale is pitching for the White Sox against the newly acquired James Shields for Kansas City. The Royals remind me of a young Reds team a couple of years ago when they finally had their breakout season.
Padres +127 is also a great value bet. They are squaring up against the Mets who don't have much to offer this year. Volquez is pitching for San Diego and I know he has some good stuff as long as he is hitting the strike zone.
Finally, Mariners -103 is a great line with Felix Hernandez on the bump. Could be a low scoring game, but I see the Mariners pulling this one out.
Hopefully we can get some bankroll early and hit the ground running this year. Good luck everyone.
