NBA Finals Game 5

Boston at Golden State (-3.5)

Who can stop Steph Curry? He pick and rolled the Celtics into oblivion in Boston on Friday night, and Boston appeared outgunned on both sides of the court. Now the series shifts back to San Francisco where the Warriors have been dominant all season. Remember, the first game Boston stole on the west coast they came roaring back from a huge deficit — and caught the Warriors flat footed. That’s not about to happen tonight. If the Celtics can’t pop their shots better or get board dominance going, this could be a relatively easy cash-in.

Pick: Warriors -3.5

MLB Best Bets

Betting baseball for a profit is nearly impossible- without discipline and balls. The season grinds you out, and the odds are always in the books favor.
There are four keys:
1. Do not revenge bet – if you lose three games in the ninth inning, go to bed.
2. Bet streaks – winning or losing -and don’t worry about the odds you lay (example: Phillies today)
3. Look for value (example: White Sox today)
4. Bet against pitchers going bad…until they beat you twice in a row (example: Jon Gray today)

That’s it.

While basketball and football we bet straight up with a line — baseball is all about the odds. So you can’t pick all 3-1 favorites and claim you have a winning record. On baseball, we will start with a stake of $2,000 and track our plays against the odds we lay or take.

So lets start with today’s MLB best bets, June 12, 2022.

Staring Bankroll: $1,000

Phillies (-190) over Arizona $100 (Risking $190 to win $100)

The Phils fired their hapless loser manager Joe Girardi a few weeks ago and went on a tear. They have reeled off eight wins in a row and are firing on all cylinders. The Diamondbacks are pathetic. Phils are #2 in batting avg. in the MLB since June 1. Bryce Harper and Kyle Schwarber are in a zone. I’m betting them until they lose at least two in a row.

Brewers over Nationals $100 (Risking $120 to win $100)

The Brew crew just relinquished first place to the surging Cardinals. They try to get on track in D.C. with Jason Alexander, who sports a 2.25 ERA in two starts. He’s not a strikeout pitcher, so he gets overlooked. The Nats are a clown show.

CHISOX over Rangers $100 (Risking $145 to win $100)

After blowing another late inning lead last night, frustrated White Sox fans starting chanting, “Fire Larussa” – the Sox old manager. LOL. This is bounce back day. The Rangers Jon Gray has been positively horrific. After nine starts, the salty vet is 1-3 with a 5.28 ERA, and sports a WHIP of 1.30. Yikes. Oh, and to insult to injury: the CHIOSOX are batting .514 against Gray in 44 at bats. Wow.

Meanwhile, Mike Kopech has been lights out: in ten starts for the south-siders. His ERA is 1.94 with a .094 WHIP. Can you say: mismatch. Bet this game now before the price goes up!
