Yesterday was a bloodbath. Twins -1.5 was a loser because Michael Friggin Kopech carried a one hitter into the 7th. Zac Gallen (Over 18.5 outs) was knocked out in the 6th by the Rangers. And, my reach pick, Shohei to hit a home run, didn’t even play. Thank goodness for Tanner Houck being forced to pitch the 6th after a 6-run 5th inning, or he wouldn’t have recorded the strikeout I needed.
1-2 yesterday. 49-43 on the season:
Mets @ Tigers (1:40pm, Game 1) Lucchesi to record over 15.5 outs, +105
Mets played a doubleheader Monday and used the entire bullpen. They play another double-dip today, and Buck will try and get the most out of his game 1 starter
Guardians @ Yankees, Over 7.5 Total Runs, -110
Bieber has allowed 2-3 runs in all 5 starts. It’s also Clarke Schmidt day, and his era is almost 7. I like Cleveland -1.5, +125, but I’m on a cold streak with run line picks.
Mariners @ A’s, Total Runs Over 7.5, -115
Coming off a day when both starters allowed a combined 2 hits, the lineups will be itching to hit today with JP Sears and Logan Gilbert on the hill. 7.5 runs is low for any A’s game that Mason Miller isn’t pitching.
4-Game Moneyline Parlay: Mets G1, Mets G2, Cubs, and Guardians moneylines, +520
I’ll also throw some money at Kyle Tucker +500 to hit home run versus Logan Webb and the Giants. Webb has allowed 7 homeruns in 6 starts, so he’s good for one today. Alvarez is only +300 to hit one, so I went with Tucker.
