MLB July 12th Selections


Oakland(Cahill) at Houston(Morton)

The Pick: Oakland(+185)

It should be Houston, Cahill a bit of a wildcard and Oak seems to have Houston’s number so I will stay away here.

 

Arizona(Ray) at Colorado(Freeland)

The Pick: Colorado(+102)

Ari might be the better team, but I like Freeman at home.

 

Philadelphia(Pivetta) at Baltimore(Gausman)

The Pick: Baltimore(-105)

Flip a coin here, I actually kind of like Gausman here v K prone Phillies.

 

Milwaukee(Miley) at Pittsburgh(Taillon)

The Pick: Milwaukee(+119)

Taillon has not gotten nay breaks this year, so I will ride Miley and the Brewers.

 

Toronto(Happ) at Boston(Price)

Boston should likely be favoured, but Price has been off enough I will go with the Toronto bats and all-star Happ here.

 

NY Yankees(Severino) at Cleveland(Kluber)

The Pick: Cleveland(+105)

Flip a coin here, I will go with Cleveland at home and hope they didn’t burn up the bats yesterday.

The Pick: Washington(-210)

Matz has been on a mini-roll of late, but draws a bad matchup v Scherzer.

 

Tampa Bay(Snell) at Minnesota(Gibson)

The Pick: Tampa Bay(-115)

I like Gibson at home v TB, however he gets a bad matchup as Snell should be on the All-Star team.

 

LA Dodgers(Stripling) at San Diego(T.Ross)

The Pick: LA Dodgers(-190)

LA has to be favoured here, but nothing seems to come easy v the Padres.

 

Seattle(Paxton) at LA Angels(Skaggs)

The Pick: LA Angels(-105)

Tough call, LA actually has the SP edge here, but it could go either way.

Gonzalez has been wobb;y so I will stay away here.

 

Kansas City(B.Smith) at Minnesota(Lynn)

The Pick: San Francisco(+110)

Tough call, will go with the Giants at home.

 

Texas(Colon) at Boston(Sale)

The Pick: Texas(+300)

Mets are ice cold so I will go with the Phillies, but it is hard to go against deGrom here.

 

Milwaukee(F.Peralta) at Miami(Straily)

The Pick: Milwaukee(-170)

Brewers should be favoured here but it is never easy playing in Miami.

 

Toronto(Gaviglio) at Atlanta(Foltynewicz)

The Pick: Toronto(+141)

Jays bats are hot, can Foltynewicz slow them down.

 

St Louis(Weaver) at Chicago White Sox(Rodon)

FIFA World Cup July 11th Selection


Croatia(+255) vs England(+105)

The Pick: Croata(+255)

Don’t be fooled by the lines, England is overbet here and I don’t believe should be considered the favourite. Certainly they have a chance if they get their tactics right and have a good start to the match, and indeed this could very well go to penalties, but that said this is the last chance this Croatian group will have as a team and I don’t think they will squander it.

 

Yesterday: 1-0 and up 1.4 units
Tournament: 32-28 and up 2.97 units

Enjoy the game everybody!

The Pick: Washington(-110)

Flip a coin here, I will give the Nats a slight edge on SP.

 

Texas(Gallardo) at Boston(Velazquez)

The Pick: Texas(+178)

You want to go with the Sox at home v the scuffling Gallardo, but the line is too much to swallow on a wildcard starter for the Sox.

 

Cincinnati(Romano) at Cleveland(Bauer)

The Pick: Cincinnati(+205)

Tribe should get this done at home, but I will stay away from the big line.

 

Philadelphia(E. De Los Santos) at NY Mets(Gagnon)

The Pick: NY Mets(+120)

Your guess is as good as mine, two wildcards are on the hill, I will go with the Mets at home.

 

Milwaukee(Chacin) at Miami(P.Lopez)

The Pick: Milwaukee(-135)

I like the Brewers here, Chacin has been marginally better on the road than at home.

 

Detroit(M.Boyd) at Tampa Bay(Stanek)

The Pick: Tampa Bay(-165)

This one is only for the die-hards, I will go with TB at home.

 

Toronto(Stroman) at Atlanta(Teheran)

The Pick: St Louis(-170)

Cards should get this done behind Mikolas

 

Kansas City(Kennedy) at Minnesota(Slegers)

Houston should bounce back, but I am going to avoid the big line.

Flip a coin here, Coors games can always be crazy, will go with the Rockies at home.

Leake is improving, but Angels still have the edge here.

FIFA World Cup July 10th Selections


France(+140) vs Belgium(+180)

The Pick: France(+140)

This is a very tough call, Belgium will not be intimidated here and it may well go all the way to penalty kicks, but I think the French have too much depth for the Belgians to deal with and they will advance.

 

Saturday: 2-0 and up 2 units
Tournament: 31-28 and up 1.57 units

Enjoy the games everybody!

NY Yankees(Sabathia) at Baltimore(G1)(Yacabonis)

The Pick: NY Yankees(-230)

Hate the line, Yanks have to be favoured here behind Sabathia.

 

Philadelphia(Eflin) at NY Mets(G1)(Wheeler)

The Pick: Philadelphia(-109)

Flip a coin here, Phillies have a slight SP edge but will the bats show up? Wheeler has been solid, not great of late.

 

Washington(J.Rodriguez) at Pittsburgh(Nova)

The Pick: Pittsburgh(+100)

SP is very ugly, I will go with Pit as a home dog.

 

The Pick: NY Yankees(Cessa) at Baltimore(G2)(Y.Ramirez)

The Pick: Baltimore(+205)

Hard to pick the O’s here, but they do have the SP edge in Game 2.

 

Texas(Minor) at Boston(B.Johnson)

The Pick: Texas(+180)

I actually like Johnson in this spot, but the line is silly.

 

Cincinnati(DeSclafani) at Cleveland(Clevinger)

The Pick: Cleveland(-185)

This might be closer than you think, give the Tribe the edge at home.

 

Milwaukee(Ch.Anderson) at Miami(Urena)

The Pick: Milwaukee(-135)

Not a gimmie, but I like Anderson in this spot.

 

Detroit(Liriano) at Tampa Bay(Archer)

Kansas City(Duffy) at Minnesota(Berrios)

The Pick: Minnesota(-210)

Twins have the big SP edge here.

 

Oakland(Montas) at Houston(G.Cole)

Astros should be favoured but this isn’t a gimmie. So I will avoid the big line.

 

LA Dodgers(Kershaw) at San Diego(Perdomo)

The Pick: San Diego(+215)

Dodgers have to be favoured behind Kershaw but the line is silly.

 

Chicago Cubs(Hendricks) at San Francisco(Suarez)

The Pick: San Francisco(-115)

Never a gimmie v the Cubs, but they don’t like LHSP’s and Suarez has pitched his way into a regular rotation spot.

Season: 672-583 and down 16.13 units

MLB July 8th Selections


Yankees(German) at Toronto(Borucki)

The Pick: Toronto(+140)

Give the Jays the edge at home.

 

Oakland(B.Anderson) at Cleveland(Bieber)

The Pick: Cleveland(-180)

Not a gimmie, but give the Tribe the edge at home.

The Pick: Detroit(-115)

Fulmer give the Tigers a slight edge at home.

 

Tampa Bay(Eovaldi) at NY Mets(Flexen)

The Pick: Tampa Bay(-137)

I like Eovaldi here against a meh Mets lineup and a spot starter on the hill.

 

Miami(T.Richards) at Washington(Roark)

The Pick: Miami(+170)

SP is ugly, Roark seems to be cursed so I will stay away from the big line.

 

Philadelphia(D.Anderson) at Pittsburgh(Kingham)

The Pick: Pittsburgh(-118)

Pittsburgh has the edge here v a spot starter.

 

Atlanta(Newcomb) at Milwaukee(Guerra)

The Pick: Milwaukee(-123)

Tough call, Atlanta the better team but Brewers have the SP edge at home.

 

Baltimore(Cobb) at Minnesota(Odorizzi)

The Pick: Minnesota(-170)

Not much in this, Odorizzi is mediocre at best but at least is a K machine of a sort, plus he draws the weak O’s and a weaker mound opponent.

 

Chicago White Sox(Giolito) at Houston(Keuchel)

The Pick: Chicago White Sox(+260)

No real reason to go near Giolito here, but the line is silly.

 

Boston(Porcello) at Kansas City(Junis)

The Pick: Kansas City(+205)

It should be Boston, they won’t likely get 15 again though so this line is silly.

Cincinnati(L.Castillo) at Chicago Cubs(Lester)

The Pick: Chicago Cubs(-145)

This isn’t a gimmie, but Cubs should be favoured at home.

 

St Louis(Flaherty) at San Francisco(Bumgarner)

This will be fun, I have to go with Bum at home.

 

Colorado(Senzatela) at Seattle(LeBlanc)

The Pick: Seattle(-141)

I like Seattle at home behind LeBlanc v a mediocre-on-the-road Rockies team.

 

San Diego(C.Richard) at Arizona(Greinke)

The Pick: San Diego(+170)

You want to take Ari here, but I am a little leery after they hung 20 on the board last night…Richards gives SD a chance at least.

 

LA Dodgers(A.Wood) at LA Angels(Heaney)

The Pick: LA Angels(+113)

Nothing in this one, will go with the Angels at home.

 

Yesterday: 7-8 and down 0.3 units
This Month: 45-48 and down 8.88 units
