The 7:00 PM games did not go well for me. The Phils crapped all over themselves and Matt Harveys making me look like a fool. The Yanks finally scored a run, I1 inning to late for me and Taillon’s pitching well, as I expected.
The 8:00 PM games are going better. The Mariners are winning big and the Brewers overcame a 4-0 deficit and now lead 8-4. I still need a couple of runs from the White Sox, who rail 2-1.
As for the late games, I’m well into a fine single malt, so no writeups just a pick and very brief explanation.
Pick #1 Parlay: LAD ML + SD ML (+127 for 3 units)
The Dodgers are one of the elite teams out there and the D-backs are one of the worst. Even if it close early, the D-back pen will probably find a way to blow it late. The Dodgers are the better team and by a wide marlgin
No team has a greater discrepancy between home and road performance than the Rockies. They are solid at home, but suck on the road. The Padres are the better team, and if it’s close late the Padres have a huge edge in the bullpen
Pick # 2 – SF 1st 5 ML (-122 for 2 units)
Framber Valdez is OK, but Kevin Gausman has been sensational. The Astros do have a formidable offense, but the Giants have some punch too and Oracle is not really that mmuch of a hitter’s park. For 5 innings, I’ll ride Gausman.
Now back to som=me mighty fine scotch.
