September 5th Selections

Chicago Cubs(Hendricks)(-200) – line is overblown because it is the Cubs, but you have to like them behind Hendricks, who has been lights out almost all year

New York Yankees(Tanaka)(-132) – SP favours the Yanks, Tor seems to own the Yanks in NY but haven’t hit behind Dickey here, knuckleballers are always a wild card

Cincinnati(Stephenson)(+116) – SP favours the Mets, Stephenson is a wild card in a spot start, but Mets have the bad travel schedule and might sit some people so I am going to go with the Reds at home, who are also playing well at the moment

Philadelphia(Eickhoff)(+110) – Mia too cold to trust right now, Eickhoff has has his issues on the road and against LH hitters, but I don’t think it matters here

Baltimore(Jimenez)(+108) – TB playing better, but SP favours Bal as Jimenez likes seeing TB and the O’s need this a lot more, Andriese has been mediocre at best

Kansas City(Kennedy)(-141) – this should be the Royals, Berrios hasn’t figured it out yet at this level.

St Louis(Wainwright)(-112) – SP actually favours Pit, but Stl is the hotter team by a margin so I will ride them here

Los Angeles Angels(Weaver)(+106) – Weaver has been better lately and likes seeing Oak, Alcantara is a wild card in MLB debut start

Atlanta(Weber)(+290) – Weber is a wild card in a spot start, I can’t swallow this line given how well the Braves are playing of late, but this should be the Nats at home

Detroit(Verlander)(+108) – coin flip game, SP actually favours CHW here slightly, but Det is the  hot team with something to play for, so I will ride them here

Texas(Hamels)(-111) – Texas is the hot team and seem to have a hex on Hernandez this year

San Francisco(Moore)(-112) – Coors games can always be crazy, this should be SF behind Moore but their bats are cold enough it is hard to trust them

San Diego(Jackson)(+210) – this should be Bos, but their bats have cooled off and Pomeranz might be over amped in his return to Petco

Cleveland(Clevinger)(-120) – SP favours Hou v a committee of Cle P’s, but Cle is so hot I am going to ride them here anyway

Los Angeles Dodgers(Maeda)(-165) – SP favours LA here, so I will ride them at home v Greinke, who has struggled on the road this year
