John Fredericks: MLB Best Moneyline Wagers for Thursday
JOHN FREDERICKS: MLB BEST MONEYLINE WAGERS FOR THURSDAY -Baseball is a funny game. One day the baseball looks as big as a cantaloupe and the next it’s a grain of sand. Picking games on the moneyline can be the same way.
I have my system: peruse the pitchers, weight the analytics. I use the Daily Racing Forum to sharpen the knife with which I cut my picks. I have a system with rules. But a lot of the picks are based on feel. I watch a ton of baseball so that you don’t have to. Sometimes I can just feel when a hot streak is coming.
Today is one of the days.
I’m about to go off.

Yippee! We went 4-1 last night and a very cool plus +$285! Now we’ve got some jack at + $594 for the season!
On to MLB Turkey Thursday!
Padres (-155) over Cubbies
I’ve been waiting to catch San Diego on a winning streak all April. This might be it today! Seth Lugo has been solid for the Padres in all his four starts: 2-1 with a 2.78 ERA and 23 K’s over 23 innings. The Cubs don’t deserve to be minus -155 and this is not a good value based on how inconsistent San Diego has been. I’m rolling the dice on an eight game winning streak and I want to catch them early.
Pick: Padres (-155)
Dodgers (-155) over Pirates
I can’t believe I am getting Julio Urias for LA over the Cubs Mitch Keller for -155. Pittsburgh is way over valued here.
Pick: Dodgers (-155)
Cards at Giants (-160)
I am riding this Giant five game win-wave with my man Logan Webb! Let’s go for 10 in a row! Cards are not that good, Vegas loves them. Whatever.
Pick: Giants (-160)
Rays (-160) over White Sox
Houston shut out Tampa-Bay twice in a row. Hey Rays, that’s what great pitching looks like. The White Sox have dropped seven straight and look pathetic. Now they have to face this monster: Shane McClanahan. He’s 4-0 with a 1.86 ERA. He’s beastly. While I like Dylan Cease for Chicago, his team sucks right now.
Pick: Rays (-160)
Yankees (-178) at Rangers
Texas just coughed a hairball in Cincy and now they have to face Gerrit Cole. It just gets worse for the Rangers. Cole has been unhittable – he’s got passed sticky-gate. Look at this for Cole: 4-0, 0.78 ERA, 0.79 WHIP, 36K’s, 0 homers. Wow!
Pick: Yankees (-178)
