Someone remind me never to take a bad team as a -150 favorite. That's something I NEVER do but somehow I did it yesterday and paid for it.
Just one tonight:
Diamondbacks -107 vs Rockies (Intertops) -- as long as Corbin is pitching this well I have to go with the D'backs at close to even money.
Yesterday: 2-5, -3.06 units
Season: 93-109, -12.44 units
Phillies +138 vs Reds (Intertops)
Braves -1.5 runs +105 vs Dodgers (Intertops)
Cubs -150 vs Mets (Intertops)
White Sox +112 vs Angels (Intertops)
Yesterday: 2-3, -0.88 units
Season: 91-104, -9.38 units
Cubs -129 vs Mets (Intertops) -- I'm still not a believer in Feldman, despite 4 straight quality starts. But the Mets are a very bad team when Harvey isn't pitching... 9-21.
Indians -150 vs Mariners (Indians) -- Better overall team. Check. Home field advantage. Check. Better hitting. Check. Better starting pitcher. Check. Better bullpen. Check. LH/RH splits in Cleveland's favor. Check. Saunders being absolutely terrible on the road this year. Check. Can't find a single handicapping factor that would point to the Mariners. I don't play very many favorites higher than -130 becuase of the random variance of the game of baseball, but when EVERYTHING I look at is in one team's favor I will certainly go to -150.
Phillies -106 vs Reds (Intertops) -- Kendrick having a great year, Philly finally starting to play fairly well.
White Sox +119 vs Angels (Intertops) -- Angels continue to play horribly, Joe Blanton sucks, and Angels have poor numbers vs lefthanded pitching.
Twins +112 vs Red Sox (Intertops) -- Taking a shot on a home dog here, Diamond has pitched fairly well (4 quality starts last 5 times out) and Red Sox hitting just .229 vs LHP this season.
Cardinals -1.5 +135 vs Brewers (Intertops) -- late Brewer rally cost me this runline last night, but if at first you don't succeed, try again. Good offense, better team, better starter, better everything... I only play runlines at +100 or better because despite the variances of baseball I feel I can hit these 50% of the time (and so far this year I am something like 12-9 in favorite runlines). So hopeuflly tonight's win will balance out last night's loss.
Royals +120 vs A's (Intertops) -- Santana having a great year, Royals hit lefties well and have represented themselves well on the road... they have a 50/50 shot here so at +120 that's a play.
