June 3, 2023
Oakland at Miami (-1.5 Runs, EVEN)
Yikes. The A’s got shut out again last night. Their combined road ERA is 8.75. Another losing streak on the road on is about to unfold.
Pick: Miami (-1.5 Runs EVEN)
Toronto (-115) at Mets
The Jay’s Jose Berrios has continued to pitch better and the bottom line is the Mets are this year NL version of the PODS—beat up the bad teams, struggle against the good teams.
The Blue Jays lineup is relentless and they match up well here. The Mets Tyler McGill got lit up last week, not making it out of the fourth inning in Colorado.
Toronto has averaged five runs per game on the road this season hitting .265 as a team. They have also averaged 4.7 runs per game in interleague play. Nice numbers.
Pick: Jays (-115)
Pick: Cleveland at Twinkies (-135)
The Guardians can’t hit a watermelon with a tennis racket on the road this year. I like the season Sonny Gray is putting together for the Twins: 4-0 with a 1.94 ERA and 1.19 WHIP with 70k’s in 60 innings.
Cleveland’s punch and Judy’s lineup is no match here for Gray.
Pick: Twins (-135)
Yanks (-110) at Dodgers
I only troll four pitchers this season: Cole, Valdez, Strohman and McClanahan.
Did I say Cole? He goes tonight.
Pick: Gerrit Cole and the Yanks (-110)
Cubs (+150) at San Diego
Yu Darvish has been inconsistent and the PODS are becoming the biggest bust since the New Coke. This team is the worst team per dollar spent in the MLB. You can’t buy culture. The pressure is mounting on the Padres and Bob Melvin is about to go. Cubs are a crap shoot on any given night so I’ll take the price.
Pick: Cubs (+150)
Braves at D-Backs (+190)
Let me get this straight: I get $190 to $100 on a first place team that’s won six in a row, eight of 11, at home—against a team that almost got swept by Oakland and has dropped five of six? Who’s pitching for Atlanta, Sandy Koufax? Beam me up Scotty! Sign me up!
