World Series Game 6: Despite the Nats bats having gone ice cold, I can't justify laying these huge odds with Strausberg on the other side so am forced to take a pass.
World Series Game 5: Passing.
World Series Game 3: First 5 innings UNDER 4.5 runs (won).
World Series Game 2: Passing.
World Series Game 1 Pick: Washington Nationals +1.5 -135 (won 5-4). The Astros have hit .189 over their last seven games. Max Scherzer is a better pitcher on the road. This game has a very high likelihood of being low scoring. Loving the run line tonight.

Tuesday, October 1st: Brewers/Nationals UNDER 7.5 (won 3-4).
Saturday, September 28th: St. Louis Cardinals -185 (lost). Wainright has held the Cubs to 1 earned run in his last 20.2 against them at Busch Stadium. Hamels is much less effective as a road picher. Cards still playingn for playoff position.
Friday, September 27th: Washington Nationals -139 (winner 8-2).
Thursday, September 26th: 3 UNIT BEST BET ALERT More huge chalk today as Nats go off at -265 vs. a Phillies team that has scored 2 runs or less in four of their last five games. Weak lefty Jason Vargas on the hill for Phillies. Smash spot here for Washington! (won 6-3)
Wednesday, September 25th: Oakland A's -208 3 UNIT BEST BET ALERT (won 3-2) The A's play good ball away from home and Halos starter Andrew Heaney has been beat up as of late, being consistently bad over his last three outings, allowing 16 earned runs in his last 14 inning pitched. Tired arm alert!
Tuesday, September 24th: Milwaukee Brewers -107 (won 4-2).
Monday, September 23rd: Washington Nationals -210 (winner 7-2)
Saturday, September 21st: What a brutal beat last night having 2 runs in the 8th, cruising towards victory, only to get bombed by a 7 run 8th inning. Sickening! I'm passing today to study football.
Friday, September 20th: Arizona Diamondbacks/San Diego Padres UNDER 8 runs. (lost 9-0)
Thursday, September 19th: Milwaukee Brewers -172 (won 5-1).
Wednesday, September 18th: Phillies +140 (won 4-1)
Tuesday, September 17th: St. Louis Cardinals -110 (lost 2-6). The Nats haven't been hitting as of late, scoring only 2 runs or less in three of their last four games. Miles Mikolas has pitched well at home this season with a 2.91 ERA. I'm loading up on this one! 3.3 to win 3.

Saturday, September 14th: Passing.
Friday, September 13th: Padres/Rockies UNDER 12.5 runs.n (loss)

Wednesday, August 28th: Chicago Cubs/New York Mets UNDER 7.5 (lost 10-7).
Tuesday, August 27th: Chicago White Sox -105 (lost 1-3).
Monday, August 26th: San Francisco Giants money line +1.5 -165 (lost 4-6). Arizona is ice cold right now. They've scored two runs or less in three of their last 4 games. It won't help them that they had to fly from Milwaukee to San Fran yesterday either (jetlag). For whatever reasons, the Giants have shown up motivated vs. AZ as of late, having averaged 9+ runs a game in four of the last five matchups. The Giants at -105 is a nice value, but I don't entirely trust Beede, so am eating the chalk today as an insurance plan.
Sunday, August 25th: St. Louis Cardinals -186 (Won 11-4). Senzatela has been blasted in each of his last 3 starts, two of which were not even at Coors Field. Cards are red hot, winners of 6 of their last 7 games. Rockies have dropped 5 of last 6.
Saturday, August 24th: St. Louis Cardinals -188 (winner 6-0). Dakota Hudson is starting to throw like he was projected to. He's held opponents scoreless over his last 13 innings, allowing only 5 hits during that span. The Cards are hot, winners of 5 of their last 6. The Rocks are not, losers of 4 of their last 5. Nolan Arenado may miss or be limited tonight after taking a heater off his right arm last night. He looked to be in some pretty serious pain, so it wouldn't surprise me if they sat him tonight. Lastly, the Rockies don't play well in St. Louis (historically).
Friday, August 23rd: Cin/Pit UNDER 9 (won 2-3).
Thursday, August 22nd: Chicago Cubs -190 (won 1-0). Cubbies are absolutely rollin' at Wrigley Field, winners of 15 of their last 18 games. Kyle Hendricks (1.98 at home in 68 innings this season) will be on the hill tonight. Giants have lost 3 in a row.
Wednesday, August 21st: Kansas City Royals -104 (lost 1-8).
Tuesday, August 20th: Houston Astros -270 (won 6-3). Houston is 16-2 in their last 18 home games, have beaten the Tigers 7 straight and 9 out of the last 10 and Detroit is 27-68 vs. rhp. The Tigers are 3-15 in their last 18 road games.
Monday, August 19th: Arizona D-Backs -185 (won 5-3). Rockies have been putrid on the road, losers of 7 of their last 8 and 15-19 when away from Coors. AZ pitcher Zac Gallen is the real deal and will soon be a household name. Colorado sends gas can Chi Chi Rodriguez to the hill, who gives up a ton of hits, walks and dingers. Throw away game for Colorado here. It wouldn't surprise me if they didn't even score tonight.
Sunday, August 18th: Passing.
Saturday, August 17th: L.A. Dodgers -154 (3.08 to win 2)(lost 3-4)
Friday, August 16th: Philadelphia Phillies -110 (3.3 units to win 3)(won 8-4)
Thursday, August 15th: Astros/A's UNDER 5.5 for the first 5 innings (lost, 7 scored. All from 4th inning on! UGH!)
Wednesday, August 14th: Philadelphia Phillies -115 (won 11-1).
Sunday, August 11th: Angels +1.5 -155 (won 5-4).
Saturday, August 10th: Philadelphia Phillies -102 (3.06 units to win 3)(lost 1-3)
Friday, August 9th: Pirates +1.5 -145 (lost 2-6). Cards really struggling to score runs. They've scored 2 runs or less in six of their last eight games.
Thursday, August 8th: Rockies/Padres UNDER 8 (lost 3-9). Jon Gray LOVES to pitch at Petco Park and I don't see the Rockies getting more than 3 or 4 here.
Wednesday, August 7th: San Diego Padres -150 (lost 2-3). Padres bats have caught fire, scoring 19 runs in their last 18 innings. Conversely, the M's have scored 2 runs or less in 3 of their last 4 gams. Mariner starter Kikuchi has fallen apart lately, allowing 25 hits in 16 innings, including 8 homers.
Tuesday, August 6th: Cleveland Indians -205 (Rained out). Zach Plesac is a reverse splits pitcher who is tough on left handed bats. He also excels in night games and has over the course of his career dating back to the minors. Rangers starter Jurado has consistently shown signs of fatigue in his career once July comes along with an ERA of almost 7! Lastly, the Rangers have a rookie catcher behind the dish which is comforting.
Monday, August 5th: Pittsburgh Pirates +1.5 (-130)(lost 7-9). Brewers are ice cold and Lyles has a 9 ERA over his last 32 innings!
Sunday, August 4th: Oakland A's -132 (won 4-2). Cards bats are ice cold, averaging less than 2 runs scored per game in 5 of their last 6 games. Conversley, A's heating up, winners of 5 of their last 6. Tanner Roark loves to pitch at the Oakland Coliseum. Projecting a 5-2 or 5-3 final score.
Saturday, August 3rd: Houston Astros -210 (won 9-0)
Friday, August 2nd: Cleveland Indians -220. Angels are ice cold after going 2-5 in their homestand vs. meager Baltimore/Detroit clubs. The Indians have had much success vs. lefties this season at 23-11. Tribe P Mike Clevinger has been dominant at home with a 0.78 ERA. He's been pitching well lately overall as well, with a 2.25 ERA. That's really all I need to know to feel good about making this tonight's top play (Won 7-3).
Thursday, August 1st: Chicago Cubs/St. Louis Cardinals UNDER 8.5 -105 (won 0-8).
Wednesday, July 31st: Texas Rangers -166 (won 9-7).
Tuesday, July 30th: Atlanta Braves -107 (won 11-8). Teheran has pitched well vs. the Nats recently, allowing only 2 ER or less in six of his last seven starts vs. Washington.
Monday, July 29th: Dbacks/Marlins UNDER 7.5 (lost 11-6).
Sunday, July 28th: Minnesota Twins -206 (won 11-1). Sox starter Dylan Covey has been horrible in day games over the years, sporting an ugly 7.78 ERA from 2016-2018. This guy is a AAA pitcher at best. Tripling up on this one, laying 6.18 to win 3.
Saturday, July 27th: L.A. Dodgers -180 (won 9-3)
Friday, July 26th: Minnesota Twins -164 (won 6-2). Minny bats RED hot scoring 9 runs per game over their last 5 with no outputs of less than 7 runs in any of those contests. Sox pitcher Dylan Cease will be good one day, but he's struggled since making the jump from AA with an ERA of over 5.
Thursday, July 25th: Cleveland Indians -148 (won 5-4). Tribe P Adam Plutko has dominated KC this season, allowing only 3 hits over 11 innings. Tribes top hitters raking at .300 over L7 games. Royals starter Mike Montgomery has shown a steep drop in stats in the month of July over his career, as his ERA has nearly doubled. This has happened consistently, 3 years in a row and 4 of his 5 career season. Clev. mashed him earlier this season.
Wednesday, July 24th: New York Yankees -116 (won 10-7). Twins in a huge letdown spot here after an emotional extra innings loss last night.
Tuesday, July 23rd: Washington Nationals -230 (won 11-1).
Monday, July 22nd: Rangers/Mariners UNDER 10 (2.2 to win 2)(pushed 3-7).
Sunday, July 21at: LAA/Sea UNDER 10.5 (lost 9-3). Neither team hits left handed pitching well and both have only scored 2 runs or less in 3 of their last 4 games.
Saturday, July 20th: San Francisco Giants -150. (blowout loss)
Friday, July 19th: Texas Rangers +190. (lost 3-4) The Astros have publicly said they're really unhappy with how MLB scheduled them tonight. They had to play AT Los Angeles last night and then fly two time zones to Houston for a night game with the Rangers. I'm taking a pop at the fatigue factor here and grabbing a piece of Texas at +190!
Wed/Thurs July 17/18: Passing.
Tuesday, July 16th: St. Louis Cardinals -175. Pirates ICE cold! (lost 1-3)
Monday, July 15th: Toronto Blue Jays/Boston Red Sox UNDER 10.5 runs scored (Got smoked 10-8). The Jays offense is as cold as a witch's tit, scoring 2 runs or less in 5 of their last 6. Boston should come out flat tonight after a huge emotional extra innings loss vs the Dodgers last night that went past midnight. Expecting cold bats and flat bats and 5 runs or less scored!
Sunday, July 14th: Rays -225. (won 4-1) Orioles are sending a guy to the mound that went 2-13 in AAA last season. Eshelman has good control, but lacks the velocity and the sit down pitch to win at the MLB level. Orioles bats are red hot and have scored double digit runs in 2 of 3 games in this series.
Saturday, July 13th: Chicago Cubs -185 (won 10-4) After a nice start to the 2019 MLB season, Jordan Lyles has gone back to being a sub par pitcher having allowed 26 earned runs in his last 30.2 innings pitched. It didn't all come at once either, he's been consistently poor. Meanwhile, Cubs lefty Jon Lester has goose-egged Pittsburgh in 4 of his last 5 starts. Cubs hitters have feasted on Lyles pitching, knocking 6 balls out of the park in only 64 at bats.
Friday, July 12th: KC Royals -137 (8-5 winner). Tigers starter Turnbull is coming off the DL with shoulder fatigue. His velocity was down in his last start. Shoulders don't heal quick, so this is a great spot. For whatever reasons, the Tigers don't give him run support either. This poor guy has only had 3 runs scored (total!) in his last 5 starts! Furthermore, the Tigers have lost 8 of his last 9 starts. Lastly, Detroit is in somewhat of a negative situation as there's rumors swirling that the team is looking to dump Castellanos, Boyd and Greene. Miggy and others have come out about it and are not happy. Love fading negative situations!
Sunday, July 7th: With many players mentally checked out as they look forward to the break, games can be unpredictable due to this variable so I'm passing. Have a GREAT All-Star break!
Saturday, July 6th: No value; Passing.
Friday, July 5th: Los Angeles Dodgers -200 (lost 2-3). LAD have won Kershaw's last 16 starts vs. Padres. Dodgers red hot right now and seemingly untouchable at home.
Thursday, July 4th: Cincinnati Reds +100 (won 1-0).
Wednesday, July 3rd: LAD -230 (won 5-4). Az in a huge letdown spot tonight after giving up 5 walks in the bottom of the 9th last night. Dodgers rolling at home right now at 15-2 over their last 17 at home. Predicting Buehler throws a shutout.
Monday, July 1st: Toronto Blue Jays -141 (won 11-4).
Sunday, June 30th: Passing.
Saturday, June 29th: Phillies -143 (lost 6-9).

Monday, June 17th: Astros/Reds UNDER 8 (won 2-3)
Sunday, June 16th: Los Angeles Angels +126 (lost 5-6).
Saturday, June 15th: Washington Nationals -220. Stephen Strasburg has some pretty sleek numbers in day games this season with a 1.99 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and .194 batting average against. Arizona starter Taylor Clarke has really struggld in his last 10 innings, allowing 11 runs.
Friday, June 14th: Chicago White Sox +100 (10-2).

Thursday, May 30th: I don't know if we had a server blip or if we simply forgot to update the MLB picks for Tues/Wed? Either way, my apologies. You didn't miss anything as we lost Tues and won Wed. Today's pick is the Milwaukee Brewers at -127 (won 11-5).
