We haven't had a qualifying NBA release since May 9th, close to a full month of sitting on the NBA sidelines without a rooting interest. That all stops tonight as we release our NBA Best Bet as well as 2 MLB Side Selections. We swept our MLB sides yesterday and are on a current 80% MLB Side Run! Best of all your can get all 3 of our selections in a money saving All-Inclusive Package. 


910 Oakland at NY Yankees

It's not often that you can get a team playing at home with a huge pitching edge in this price range. The line has been bet down from -160 to -140 overnight and now it's time to pounce on the Yankees. We give Oakland all the credit in the world and they are very good at making pitchers work, which is how you beat Tanaka, but this line is cheap in our opinion. He has been about the most consistent starter in baseball this year as opposed to Drew Pomeranz who is on the opposite end of the spectrum. He's pitched better out of the bullpen but he's forced into the starting role here. 

After a nicely priced underdog winner on the Marlins yesterday, we will lay a bit of chalk for the fee play on Thursday.

Good luck, Bryan. Although I agree with your summary and believe that the Yanks DO eke out the win, personally I found better value in the A's RL at about the same price. I'm sure you know the reason why? The Bombers' bullpen was taxed pretty heavily last night and we know it can be a circus at the best of times. Only Soriano has seen Pom and is hitless in his last 6 games. Not sure that the unfamiliarity will be as much of an edge here? Tanaka will certainly go deeper, however unless he goes complete the A's will get a look at that bullpen. I think we are looking at a 4-3 Yanks' W......if the 'pen holds. GL, buddy. Perhaps we can both cash it......

Agree with your points Bryan, but can't pass on getting Oakland at this price, along with a better bullpen in Oakland. If they are in it late, I give Oakland a better shot.

Oaklands has the better but likely more tired pen.. Their key guys pitched 2 nights in a row.. Last night the yanks didn't use Robertson Kelley or Betances and while there's been a little inconsistency lately there all 3 have been solid for the most part.. I'd actually give pen advantage NYY here
