August 23rd Selections


Washington(Lopez)(+132) – this is a complete coin flip for me, so I will take the Nats as a dog

Houston(Lopez)(-120) – Lopez appears to be legit, Nova has been shaky since coming over from NY

Toronto(Dickey)(-146) – Line is overblown as knuckleballers are inconsistent by definition, but the return of Pillar give the Jays yet another potent bat at home

Cincinnati(Straily)(+100) – Holland is a wild card coming off of the DL, Straily is as close to an Ace as the Reds have

Kansas City(Ventura)(-105) – coin flip game, both teams are hot, SP favours the Royals slightly so I will ride them here

Boston(Buchholtz)(+110) – Buchholtz likes seeing TB in his career, Archer absolutely hates seeing the Red Sox

Chicago White Sox(Rodon)(-160) – this should be the Sox behind Rodon, Thompson still trying to figure it out at this level

Milwaukee(Ch.Anderson)(+120) – assuming Anderson is healthy, I like the Brewers at home as Gray really struggling away from Coors field

Detroit(An.Sanchez)(-115) – SP is a wash, Det is the hot team with something to play for so I will ride them here

St Louis(Garcia)(-170) – Cards hot with the bats and SP favours them so I will ride them here

Arizona(Bradley)(-125) – SP is a mess, I will go with the D’backs at home in a coin flip game

New York Yankees(Sabathia)(+122) – coin flip, Sabathia struggling but Walker a wild card after call up so I will go with the Yanks as a dog here

Oakland(Manaea)(+133) – assuming Salazar is healthy, this should be the Tribe, but he is hard to trust right now

Los Angeles Dodgers(Maeda)(+100) – these games are always hard to call, Bum doesn’t like seeing the Dodgers so I will go with LA as a slight home dog

Chicago Cubs(Arrieta)(-260) – hate the line, but this should be the Cubs behind Arrieta

Strong Plays: Chicago White Sox(Rodon)(-160)
