Record: 26-30    +1.61 units

 

1-2 yesterday and lost over half a unit. Four straight days of 1-2. I know how to fix that problem today.......bet two games ...Can't win any close ones right now. Herrera had been untouchable for KC and gives up three homers last night in four batters. Oh well. Two plays:

 

 

San Francisco +111 Vogelsong v Lohse....match up of a couple of guys that I'm never quite sold on. I'll take the better bullpen and hope the SF offense scores a few.

 

 

Arizona +138 I'll take the D'backs againn today......hopefully it turns out better than yesterday.

 

 

 

 

Good luck all!

Pirates Runline might be the safer bet

Thank you for your thoughts, but a 5 game winning streak doesn't mean that a team is due to lose. Those five games don't matter today when Miller takes on Burnett......you may have noticed that young Shelby Miller is off to a pretty nice start himself. I'm not betting the game, so good luck to you but I think your logic is off.

Not trying to bet against streaks, but what do you think Kansas City today?

KC played tough last night and if not for that ridiculous 8th inning, the game would have been much different. You know what they say though... if ifs and buts were candies and nuts we'd all have a merry christmas.

Gotta go Braves again. Plenty of other people taking shrapnel betting that the Braves are due to drop one.

I haven't been very impressed with Wade Davis this year. That said, he hasn't been awful. He had a bad start and then a reasonable start.

I took KC yesterday and the game was close. Herrera blew up, couldn't see that coming.

KC has had very good starting pitching this year and the bullpen is solid, in spite of a couple of hiccups.

The KC offense has been less than stellar, although they will have Butler in the lineup today over Hosmer, that should help the KC offense. Moustakas figures to struggle with another left hander, he hasn't found anything this year. Low average and no power so far, not a great combination.

Ultimately the Braves have in my opinion a solid edge at Starting Pitcher and Offensively. I think the pens are a wash. And the Braves are just really rolling right now. I don't think KC wins this enough to justify a play, but that's my opinion. If I played the game, it would probably be KC but I'm not gonna play this one.


Good luck Jose

mmac,

Based on what you said, don't you think that Atl -.5 would be the way to go?

Good luck on your plays today.
