157-129 Plus (-$645)
*Based on all wagers at $100 per game at money or run line odds as specified in DraftKings. Note: If moneyline is -$150, we are laying $150 to win $100, etc. If we take +$130 and we win, we win $130 for our $100.
Reds (+125) at Birds
Even though the Reds cooled off, losing two of three at home to Atlanta, all three games were by one-run. I’m sticking here with the Reds as a believer in this team…for now.
Pick: Reds (+125)
You cannot bet the Mets right now, especially after Sunday’s 8th inning meltdown against Philadelphia. This team is sick to its core. Showalter is about to get fired, and it proves that all the hedge fund money in the world can’t buy a winning culture.
Pick: Brewers (+165)
Twins (+210) at Braves
This is my hunch for an Atlanta letdown. The Braves are coming off three grueling, nail-biting, tense games in Cincinnati, playing three consecutive one-run games against a spicy-hot Reds team.
Their bullpen was used up and this game has a “come out flat” written all over it.
Plus I’ll take over 2:1 with Sonny Gray. Thank you!
Pick: Twins (+210)
White Sox (+125) at Angels
Dylan Cease has been hot and cold this season for Chicago. Right now, he’s like a jalapeño pepper! The Angels are going nowhere fast.
Chicago is hanging around the A.L. Central at six games back, even though they are 11 games under .500. Didn’t the Angels just lose 30-0?
Pick: White Sox (+125)
Detroit at Texas (Under 9.0, -110)
Detroit has averaged just 3.5 runs per game against lefty starters this season hitting .203 against them.
On the flip side, opponents have averaged just 3.6 runs per game against Detroit over their last seven games.
Matthew Boyd and Andrew Heaney have both been decent this season.
