Liking Lincecum

ANGELS (Even Up - Bovada)

Love the Lincecum coming back thing especially against a Rookie pitcher with a high ERA!!

Jack Ryan ML Parlay!

Today's ML Parlay!!

Gone a bit cold after a sweet Hot Streak with these...

Washington (Scherzer) -250
Cleveland  (Salazar) -210

Nats having a field day with Padres. Rea for Pads has accumulated a pretty high ERA lately.

Tribe and Salazar is going against Shields who is in a real bad way!

Not a huge payday but more confident than normal with these matchups!!

Taking Ohio U and the points!!

Louisville is pretty tough but no way OU is that bad. Good coach, QB and RB!!  Points are a gift!!

Going with Ohlendorf!

Small Bet...Padres at home vs Rookie. Ohle got whupped his last time out but has a good record at home.  

Hoping for damage control with Minnesota taking a poop.

Twins a Gift at -104?

Hot Twins are playing hapless Indians. Total pitching mis match with the hot Dedino vs Kluber who has ERA in double figures over the last 3 games....

Gotta jump on this!!!

Best deal I can see on the board is Lincecum and the Giants over the hapless Rockies. Bodog has it at -152. Made some decent money betting against Colorado, just have to hope Timmy doesn't have a meltdown...!!

Wow! WNBA is back

Glad to see the same cappers here again!! You guys really helped me last year in the run up to Football!! 

I have been able to at least survive in Baseball this year. Usually I get blown out right from the GitGo!! 

Can't wait to start my WNBA investments...Wasn't sure when it started!!

Hit with Nats Yesterday! Reds Today!!

Nats and Zimmerman gave me an easy one yesterday!!

I think I am about 5-2 recently!!

Today is kind of tough. Tigers and Tribe look like obvious picks but the odds suck and they both have different issues I don't like!

Cinci Reds (-125)
Reds HOT after winning 5 of last 6
Bailey looked great last outing! 1 run in 7 innings!
Vogelsong decent but not overwhelming
Both teams hit Righties really well
Giants have 5.09 ERA in last 5 games!!
Reds ranked by TR at 10
Giants ranked by TR at 25

Nats Tonight w/Zim!!

Lost with the Giants yesterday. Who would've guessed Cain would have taken that big of poop vs the light hitting Reds.

Zimmerman has a 1.29 ERA
Wieland has 5.73 ERA
Wieland did pitch very well in his last start

Nats TR Rank is 9
San D Rank is 25

Nats are 5-2 Away
San D is 4-8 Home

Both Teams hitting under 200 in last 5 games!!

Going with the Cards! 6-1 last couple of Days!

I hope I finally beat the damn posting jinx!! I would do well until I posted my picks then everything would tank!!

2-0 Yesterday. 6-1 on this last run!!

Real tough today!! None of the matchups work very well for me. Teams that have a killer Rank advantage are starting crappy pitchers, etc!

Only 1 Bet:

St. Louis Cards (-108) over Cubbies
- Cards TR rank is #3 while Cubbies is #29 (Next to Last)
- Garcia righted his ship! Only 1 run in 7 innings in last start!
- Garza started the year well but got trashed for 6 runs last outing
- Cards have a sweet 7-3 record on the road!
- Cubs a miserable 3-7 at home
- Cards Pen has an .098 ERA in last 3 games
- Cubs Pen has 4.94 ERA in last 3 games
- Cubs lost 7 out of last 8

2 for 3 Yesterday! Cards/Rays Today!!

Halliday took a big poop vs a crappy Padre team or I could have had a sweep!!

Today I am going to do a Parlay on Cards/Rays!!

Quick Notes.....

-  Liriano is sporting an 11.91 ERA for the lowly Twinkies! 
-  Rays also ranked 10 points higher than Minnesota.
-  Niemann doing OK at 4.50.
-  TB also 4-1 at Home.
-  TB won last 3 out of 4
-  Morneau questionable after fouling ball off foot!!

- Lohse has been lights out with 0.89 ERA
- Bedard a bit scary with a sweet 2.65 ERA
- Cards ranked #4 by TR. Pitt ranked at #21
- Cards Pen has 1.47 ERA over last 5

- Pitt heating up. Won last 3 out 4

2-0 Yesterday. Nats/LAD/Philly today!!

I didn't post yesterday which led to a 2-0 record. Trying to break this posting jinx!!

Here's what I'm looking at Today..May have to parlay since odds are not that favorable...

Washington - Strasburg (1.42) pitching at home vs a good pitcher in Anibel Sanchez (2.92)! Miami blows on the road so far this season! Nats ranked 4 spots higher in the various polls. Miami does hit Righties better than the Nats but Strasburg at home is to good of a deal to pass up.

LA Dodgers - Huge Starting Pitching advantage! Kershaw going up against Weiland and his 8.44 ERA!! Houston ranked higher in TR poll but that's joke!!

Philly - They have been underachieving but Halliday is the starter vs possibly the worst team in baseball in San Dog. Luebke a decent pitcher with 3.71 ERA.

ND Spring Game plus Dinner w/Manhattans later.

Have a prosperous Saturday!!

Yankee/Sox Comparisons

Yankees Advantages:
Nova 2-0 (4.15 ERA)
Bucholz 9.82 ERA
TR Rank: Yanks 15/Sox 19
Overall Record: Yanks 7-6/Sox 4-8
Pen over last 3: Yanks 1.28 vs Sox 4.26
Yanks hit Righties better  .317 vs .248 (Last 5)

Red Sox Advantages:
Nova ERA over 4.0
Bucholz good pitcher that has been pitching bad
Big Home Field Advantage w/Fenway Anniversary

Normally I would be all over Pinstripers but the Fenway Anniversary will make me stay away....

Nats and Yanks!!

My posting Hex is still solid. Took my first loss in days yesterday since I posted my pics!! LAD part of the parlay held up with the +1.5 but AZ took a poop on my tally!!

Taking Nats (Zimmerman)  and the Yanks (Kuroda) in the parlay today!

Nats are rated 14 points better in TR polls than lowly Houston
Yanks are rated 18 points better than the Twinkies

Zimmerman is 1-0 1.29
Kuroda did 8 shutout innings last time out
Both Teams at Home!!

Been Rolling so here goes!!

Been on a roll by using a combo of Team Rankings, Pitching Comparisons, etc so here goes...

Dodgers +1.5 (Billingsley)     Rank Advantage (21)
Arizona (Kennedy)               Rank Advantage  (12)

Both teams have nice advantage in Starting Pitchers and have nice gaps in the Rankings.

Overall LA (9-1)
AZ (7-3) 4-0 at home

Karstens also pitching well for Pit though. Could be an issue

Best Shot for Tonight!

Hit last night with UConn.

Not much out there tonight. Iowa State seems to be the fave of my Board of Governors on Covers and RX.

Iowa State -9 (Bodog)

Lets put a rally together!!

Posted Friday, October 21, 2011 07:32 PM

Hangin with the Big Dogs! Rutgers!

Overwhelming majority of cappers that matter seem to be on Rutgers.

I will jump on the bandwagon of course!

Rutgers -1 (Bodog)

Posted Thursday, October 06, 2011 06:19 PM

MTSU -11

Consenus of RX/Covers Primo Cappers seem to be with MTSU tonight!

MTSU -11 Bodog

Yankees also super popular but I'm to afraid I will put the hoodoo on 'em!!

Posted Sunday, October 02, 2011 08:22 PM

Living the Dream!!

Don't see any kind of consensus for Balt/Jets. Think Ravens win but I don't want to give the points.

Nice consensus on Atlanta with Creep, Bantam, Badlands and Tind!

Got in late so Bodog gypped me for 1/2 pt

Atlanta +6.5 (Bodog)

Posted Friday, September 30, 2011 06:26 PM

Utah State +8

Went off the beaten path last night and went with South Florida even though there was no consensus of the capping elite. Bad Move!!

Going with the flow again tonight which has worked really well dating back to preseason games!!

Utah State +8 (Bodog)

Posted Thursday, September 29, 2011 06:05 PM

Saw both Pitt and South Fla play ND!

I was at the Typhoon Bowl in South Bend and watched Pitt on the Tube.

Bulls have great QB and didn't make any mistakes!

USF -3 (Bodog)

Posted Saturday, September 24, 2011 10:52 AM

Morning Investments!!

Jumping in with Big East, Boom, Freak, Kasper, Oddsmaker, etc on the GA TECH bet!

GA TECH -7 (Bodog) Medium

Fun bet on a ML Parlay with ND, Ga Tech, Georgia

Bet 30 to make 40!!

Posted Tuesday, September 20, 2011 06:12 PM

Stars +8

I don't usually go against me mates but that seems like too many points to give San Antonio

Stars +8 Small (Bodog)

Posted Sunday, September 18, 2011 08:13 PM

Sunday Night Foots!!

Just completed a Sunday Sweep.

Hit my morning 3 team moneyline parlay

and hit 2 of my 3 picks with the last coming on MNF!

Going with Philly tonight along with Badlands, Orange, Purdue, etc!!

Philly - 3 Bodog

Posted Thursday, September 15, 2011 11:24 PM

Nice LSU Win!!

Consenus in Bodog and RX were split. Had to go with instinct and won!

Also it never hurts to be on the same side as Big East!!

NCAA Record 4-3 and 3-2 on Parlays.

Luckily the Wins were big bets and Losses were smaller bets!!
