Picks of the Day, 5/22

Ozzie Albies and the Braves host the Dodgers and Gavin Stone who replaces Dustin May in the LA rotation

Happy Monday. As a heads up, my wife should be going into labor any minute now, so when you don’t see a post for a few days, that is why. Follow @ITDiamonds_Jim on Twitter, and I’ll at least throw picks up there .
.500 last week. MLB is still drunk, more teams over or under performing than I can ever remember. I guess this is what makes baseball great, and hard to gamble on. If you’re not having fun, go bet on college football where any monkey can make money.

72-65 on the season. Been in a two week slump that ends today:
Pick #1
Blue Jays @ Rays, Toronto Moneyline, -110
Chris Bassitt has been huge for a Blue Jays staff that has been wildly disappointing. The Rays are going with a bullpen day, which more often than not is a white flag (although TB has more success than other teams with pen days). Jays need to snap a 4 game losing streak, I like the team desperate to win vs. a bullpen day.
Pick #2
Cardinals @ Reds, St. Louis -1.5 Run Line, -120
The Cardinals are as hot as any team in MLB right now. They have won 8 of 10 games including series wins against Boston, Milwaukee, and the Dodgers.
Pick #3
Red Sox @ Angels, Total Runs Over 9.5, -115
Tanner Houck is always excellent for a few innings, then serves up 3-5 runs in the 4th or 5th and ruins a good start. Angels counter with a reliver making his first start. Not sure if this is a bullpen day, or an audition for Barria to be a starter. Either way, there will be runs.
Ozzie Albies Over 1.5 Total Bases, +135
I’ve been ice cold with these bonus or reach picks. Playing it a little more conservative until I recoup some losses.

Picks of the Day, 5/20

Not an awful day yesterday. 2-1 with the White Sox moneyline, and CLEV/NYM over hit easily. I also took the over in the Cards/Dodgers game, mostly because the Cardinals had scored 8.7 runs per game over their last 7 games…of course they were shut out and the over was a bust. I can’t get too […]

Diamondbacks Continue Chasing Dodgers

They may not be where they were to start the season when they led the loaded National League West, but the Diamondbacks are still hanging tough in the division. Arizona is currently second, and just three games back of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Then on the flip side of things, the San Francisco Giants are […]
