MLB Betting System

Hey, all... I'm looking to see if anyone has a book, local to Indiana or web-based (not a site) who is willing to take action? If so, I am willing to share the MLB System I have been using for the past 5 MLB seasons, all of which netted me profits - the past two seasons gaining better profits than the previous three. I'm not saying you have to use it or anything of that nature, just a way of saying thank you for the hook-up. If you know of anyone, please inbox me ASAP! Have a good one, fellas!

Best of Luck - I'm Out!

Everything about this site is great, it really is - all but the select few, of course. I understand that forums are an open-door policy to where each can preach their individual opinions freely, but there has got to be some kind of limit. 
I feel as if Covers needs to definitely come up with some kind of  "Ignore", "Block" or "Flag" option at the very least on some people's posts. Just like the other day, these hopeless losers all get on my thread and post close to 30 comments, bashing away at nothing but my avatar and one of my picks for the given night. Seriously?! It's the same group of virgins who just keep posting moronic insults over and over and over again... keeping sports bettors away and true knowledge and talk of the game as far as possible. Oh, and they have a nickname for their little "club", too. Cute. 
With that being said, I will no longer be following the site. I'm not attempting to act like I'm something special and say, "Well, fine... I'll just leave!" because I'm not, at all. The fact of the matter is, when people troll around the site, it reflects poorly on the product. I hope you all hear me out, even just a bit. Have a good one and thank you for the fun and great features the site has to offer, but enough is enough from the peanut gallery - enough to keep me and the other hundreds of people I speak for, at least.

Best of luck to you all.

Pricetopher's Picks (7/27/11)

Indians/Angels (Under, 8.5) Regardless of today's starters for both the Los Angeles Angels and Cleveland Indians pitching staffs, the bats simply have not been there for either squad. It seems that each team loves to creep out to a 1-run lead and hold on to it the entire game until the opposing side attempts a last-second, bases loading comeback in the 9th inning. Regardless, the over of 8.5 has only hit 1 time in the last 10 match-up between these two teams and 6 times out of the last 25. Just trust me on this one, my valued play of the day, ok?!

Mariners/Yankees (Under, 8.5) I'm a New York Yankees fan through and through and one thing I can tell you is that Felix Hernandez (8-9, 3.47 ERA) finds a way to own the Pinstripes! He literally throws pitches that keep batters guessing, definitely earning him the renowned "King Felix" nickname - his problem is the offensive production is beyond lacking for his Seattle Mariners. Seattle's crappy offense could help starter Phil Hughes (1-2, 9.47 ERA) breathe a sigh of relief as he's looking to drop those numbers a bit today. Oh, one more thing (and you didn't hear this from me) - M's value play looks damn sweet! Shhhh!


Detroit Tigers (+110) I genuinely can not figure out why the Detroit are dogs to the Chicago White Sox today? The Tiger's bats are far superior to Chicago's and the day's starter Max Scherzer (11-5, 4.35 ERA) is definitely far superior and posts better numbers than his counterpart John Danks (3-8, 3...

Pricetopher's Picks (7/26/11)

Giants/Phillies (Under, 8) With Philadelphia Phillies starter Vance Worley (6-1, 2.02 ERA) pitching like a mad man all season, especially lately where his numbers in his last 3 games are a 3-0 record with a staggering 0.89 ERA, I see the NL West-leading Giants and Barry Zito (3-2, 4.78 ERA) getting shut down, limited to a maximum of 2 runs... easy. However, I don't see the Phillies putting up much more than a handful of runs themselves, letting the bats cool a bit in the first game of the series. (Continued, Pk. 2)

Philadelphia Phillies (-120) I don't generally handcuff bets together like I am tonight, but I see ample evidence why I feel you have got to take the Philadelphia Phillies, who are looking to bounce back in this match-up since dropping their last, heavily-favored game to the Padres - and especially given San Francisco starter Barry Zito's previous outing where he gave up 8 runs in just over 3 innings to San Diego. Phillies and under - bang!

Los Angeles Angels (-135) Although the fake Los Angeles Angels cost me real money last night by gaining the lead very late in the game (just enough to wake me up and get me excited) to just blow it all to hell by the bottom of the 9th inning (just enough to make me want to kick a kitten), I am backing them again tonight - one reason, Jared Weaver (13-4, 1.81 ERA). Weaver is more clutch at pitching than I am at texting ex girlfriends on a lonely, drunken Saturday morning around 3 a.m. Add to that the ... [More]

Pricetopher's Picks (7/25/11)

Padres/Phillies (Under, 7)
There is no question that the Philadelphia Phillies have dominated the San Diego Padres over the first three games of this four-game series. The real question is, can they continue to do so with the hot hand of Aaron Harang (8-2, 3.29 ERA) taking the rubber today when he goes head-to-head with Phillies starter Cliff Lee (9-6, 2.83 ERA) in Monday's only mid-day match-up? I know I'm not letting myself lay that kind of juice in this one - the Padres may steal it. Regardless, this game has UNDER written all over it - with Lee posting an insane 6-0, 0.95 ERA at Citizens Bank Park in his last seven home starts since losing to Atlanta on May 6 and Harang staying consistently good since returning from the DL, we're looking at a low-scoring pitcher's duel. Add to the fact that Padres hot-hitting CF Cameron Maybin (who is batting .422 with 6 RBI's and 11 runs scored in 10 games since the All-Star break) will likely be out due to problems arising via a hip flexor strain and you can both sleep through this one and make money simultaneously.

Los Angeles Angels (-130)
Dan Haren's (10-6, 3.10 ERA) Los Angeles Angels are playing better than they have all season. To his aid, Haren will face the slumping Cleveland Indians and Fausto Carmona (5-10, 5.63 ERA) on Monday night, a team who has only averaged 2 runs over their last 4 games. The Angels seem to own every aspect of this match-up at Progressive Field, especially since Carmona holds a caree... [More]

Pricetopher's Picks (7/24/11)

A's/Yankees (Under, 9.5) The Oakland A's have yet to beat the New York Yankees two straight times in over 4 years - a drought that I don't necessarily see ending today, although I do think they have a better chance than most given Bartolo Colon's (6-6, 3.34 ERA) descending 0-3, 6.39 ERA of late. However, the only thing that I think can help boost both Colon's ego and numbers is the sporadic hitting of the Athletics hitters - inconsistency being a big reason behind Oakland dropping 11 out of their last 12 games. A bright point will be A's starter Gio Gonzalez (9-6, 2.32 ERA) who has been pitching well in recent games, giving him a 2-1, 2.00 ERA throughout his last 3 starts. I see New York getting off to an early but slim lead and becoming complacent with their bats, leading them to a handful of runs, keeping the A's off the board until relief comes in to give up 1 or 2 towards the end.

White Sox/Indians (Under, 8) With Chicago White Sox starters Edwin Jackson (6-7, 3.97 ERA) coming off a complete game shutout of the Tigers this past week and Cleveland Indians starter Justin Masterson (8-6, 2.64 ERA) giving up no runs in 7.2 innings against the Twins just a few days later, I expect both pitchers to come in with high confidence and their pitches on command. It's hard to pick a side in this match-up, given the fact that their offensive consistency is about as reliable as an Enron pension plan - leading me to take the under. Hell, I'd take the under in this one if... [More]

Pricetopher's Picks (7/23/11)

Astros/Cubs (Over, 9.5) If you had the "luxury" of watching yesterday's opener between the Houston Astros and Chicago Cubs, you saw close to 1,846,902 runners left stranded on base. Ok, so maybe I rounded up a little. Anyway, the next time there are no outs, bases loaded and Hunter Pence draws a 0-3 count after 3 straight walks were issued and he swings at the next pitch is the last time I will ever consider watching him or any team he plays on again! You're not Pujols,ya' dick... you don't get the green light! Ok, now that I'm calm I'll say that both pitchers today, Astros starter Wandy Rodriguez (6-6, 3.67 ERA) and Cubs starter Randy Wells (1-3, 6.71 ERA) both have ERA's well over 7.00 in their last 3 starts a piece, each being in losing fashion. Pair that with the wind blowing out in Wrigley today and the fact that these two clubs just love running totals up on one another and you've got yourself a winner.

Philadelphia Phillies (-140) Although there's a bit of juice to give up, I'm surprised the Philadelphia Phillies aren't already at -160 or greater, given the recent struggles with the San Diego Padres' offense together with the fact the the ML-leading Phillies (62-36) have a home an amazing home record of 35-15 on the season. With both starters pitching rather well of late, Padres starter Mat Latos (5-10, 4.02 ERA) and Kyle Kendrick (5-4, 3.34 ERA) both with ERA's in the 3's throughout their last three starts, I can see the under being a good p...

Pricetopher's Picks (7/22/11)

Padres/Phillies (Under, 7.5) With San Diego Padres' starter Cory Luebke (3-3, 2.57 ERA) and Phillies' ace Cole Hamels (11-5, 2.71 ERA) taking the mound today, the under would seem like a good bet - and that's without touching on how poorly these teams seem to be at the plate! The two clubs have faced one another four times this season, only once did the run total get to 6 (and that took extra innings). Jump all over the sluggish offenses and good pitching tonight with the under bet.

Atlanta Braves (Pick) In my mind (and value bet of the day), Jair Jurrjens (12-4, 2.26 ERA) is hands-down one of the best pitchers in the majors, regardless of his last outing against Washington where he gave up 6 earned runs over just 5 innings. A good confidence booster should come tonight when his Atlanta Braves head to Cincinnati to face Bronson Arroyo (7-8, 5.57 ERA) and the Reds. Arroyo has had an atrocious 8.66 ERA in his last three starts and that's not to mention the mere 7 runs that the Reds have compiled over their last 5 games. Look for the Braves to put solid numbers on the board while the Reds keep themselves from scoring more than anything. I love this play!

Cardinals/Pirates (Under, 7.5) With St. Louis Cardinals' starter Chris Carpenter (5-7, 3.69 ERA) finally seeming to find his groove, putting up an outstanding 2.05 ERA up in his last 3 starts, I see the Pirates as his next victims. With that being said, Pittsburgh Pirates' starter Paul... [More]

Pricetopher's Picks (7/20/11)

Reds/Pirates (Under, 7) With both Johnny Cueto (5-3, 2.01 ERA) and Jeff Karstens (8-4, 2.34 ERA) pitching relatively well on the season, run-support being the main concern for both clubs, the under looks prime in today's game. I feel that as long as the Cincinnati Reds can keep the Pittsburgh Pirates off the board in the 1st inning, these low-scoring clubs (especially in mid-week, mid-day games) should stay well under the mark.

Boston Red Sox (-115) My value play of the day is definitely the Boston Red Sox, especially after dropping last night's game. Although Boston is very inconsistent, being extremely hot with the bats one day and cold the next, I don't think they'll allow the Baltimore Orioles to get away so cleanly - bringing their big sticks with them today. Boston's Andrew Miller (3-1, 5.68 ERA), who struggled a bit with Tampa Bay last week, had a great outing against the O's on July 7th, going 5 innings and allowing only 3 runs in a 10-4 victory.

Cleveland Indians (+105) Even though the Cleveland Indians' closer cost me some decent coin last night, I'm backing them today when starter (11-4, 4.03 ERA) comes to the mound against the Minnesota Twins, hoping to help gain sole position atop their division. Tomlin  has been amazing as of late, going 4-0 with a 3.79 ERA in his last 6 starts. Minnesota Twins starter Nick Blackburn (7-6, 3.99 ERA) is having recent success of his own, going 4-1 with a 2.97 ERA in his last 5 home starts, but I don't feel it'll... [More]

Pricetopher's Picks (7/19/11)

Boston Red Sox (-115) Regardless of fill-in starter Kyle Weiland's (0-0, 13.50 ERA) disastrous ERA, The Boston Red Sox can rely on their bats to make it 8-straight wins against the Baltimore Orioles. In divisional play, the Red Sox have a sort of "anything you can do, I can do better" mentality (as shown in last night's 15-10 win over the O's) that starts off hot and definitely kicks into overdrive once the relievers are brought in. Look for Boston to jump on Jeremy Guthrie (3-13, 4.45 ERA) early in the first inning and never let up. I really like the over in this one, too!

Florida Marlins (-140) Although both the Florida Marlins and San Diego Padres are last in their respective divisions, the Fins look like one of the hottest teams in baseball right now as the Padres continue their woeful ways. The fact that the Padres average run total rivals those of Women's World Cup scores combined with the fact that Anibal Sanchez (6-2, 3.54 ERA) is taking the rubber against them tonight screams value play to me! I see San Diego dropping their 6th-straight road game tonight by a handful.

Washington Nationals (-130) Jordan Zimmerman (6-7, 2.66 ERA) has a record that could fool many people into thinking he's having an off year - not the case. The lack of run-support is the main factor in the Washington Nationals .500 record. Put them up against baseball's worst Houston Astros and starter Justin Happ (3-11, 5.76 ERA), who has been awful at best combined with a team who w... [More]

Pricetopher's Picks (7/18/11)

Boston Red Sox (-130) If you were one of the select few who decided to throw some money down on last night's Boston/Tampa Bay game like I did, I feel for ya'! Although some of us ended up making a profit off of the 16-inning snooze fest, it definitely left more to be desired from the bats of either team. With that being said and understanding that Boston probably won't have their A-game on them tonight, I don't think it will matter much - usually it only take a C-game or better to own Baltimore like the Red Sox have. Add the fact that the Knuckleball King, Tim Wakefield (5-3, 4.74 ERA) is going up against a fairly bad team with an even worse starting pitcher in Brad Bergeson (1-4, 5.65 ERA). Add that to the fact that Carl Crawford is being added to Boston's line-up and Vladimir Guerrero is being taken away from Baltimore's makes this game a no-brainer to me.

New York Yankees (-140) Tampa Bay Rays starter Alex Cobb (2-0, 3.41 ERA) is looking to be a decent starter who could do fairly well in the majors given some hitting to back him up. New York Yankees starter and veteran A.J. Burnett (8-7, 4.15 ERA) has been less than consistent this season, especially against the Rays. Even with those two statements prefixing my bettor's addendum, I feel like fatigue on the side of a Tampa Bay team who dropped 2 of their last 3 games at home to the Yankees right before the All-Star break along with bat speed, power and needing every last game in the AL East to take ove...

Pricetopher's Picks (7/17/11)

St. Louis Cardinals (+110) Although this rivalry between these two Midwestern teams is rather fierce and sometimes hard to call, I like Jaime Garcia (9-3, 3.22 ERA) to take the series in Cincinnati today. Reds starter, Homer Bailey (3-4, 4.13 ERA) has posted a 6.00 ERA and has dropped to 0-3 in his last 3 starts since coming off the disabled list with a sprained shoulder on June 26th, leading me to lean the way of the Cardinals, where I feel they will jump off to a hot start early against Cincinnati's struggling starter and even worse relief pitchers.

Cleveland Indians (Pick) The Baltimore Orioles broke out of their slump yesterday with a win over the Cleveland Indians, making them 2-11 since the beginning of June - keeping them at awful status... still. I look for Jeanmar Gomez (0-1, 4.91 ERA) to keep Baltimore hitters at bay while Oriole's starter Mitch Atkins (0-0, 8.22 ERA) may want to come out a little hotter facing Cleveland than he did last week against Boston, giving up 6 earned runs off of 7 hits and lasting only 1.2 innings. Add that with the fact that Atkins' smile borders the lines between goofy and creep show and you'll definitely be pulling for the Tribe in this one!

Florida Marlins (Pick) Apparently the Marlins think they're good now or something?! Ok, well... I'll bite. Going 7-3 in their last 10 games while, for the most part, owning the Chicago Cubs pitching staff and putting up some decent run totals, le... [More]

Pricetopher's Picks (7/16/11)

New York Yankees (-140) Although the New York Yankees have dropped their last two games in Toronto, it was with sub-par pitching (Colon and Garcia) that was the root cause of it all. Look for the Yankees to bounce back today with C.C. Sabathia (13-4, 2.72 ERA) on the mound to take any hopes of a sweep away from Ricky Romero (7-8, 3.09 ERA) and the Blue Jays, who look to go their third straight game without leading All-Star Jose Bautista (not that it would matter much, seeing as how Bautista is 0-15 with 7 strikeouts against Sabathia this season). The Yankees roll to a win in this one, allowing us to take the valued -140 ML, thanks to their previous two losses.

Philadelphia Phillies (-145) How can you bet against Philadelphia when Cole Hamels (11-4, 2.32 ERA) is on the mound? Easy, you don't. Add Philadelphia's ace to the fact that the Mets (with or without Jose Reyes) handle good pitching about as well as I handle dairy products and you've got yourself a successful wager! If the Phillies can keep their bats going as they have over the last month (stepping their production up to a .287 average while scoring 45 runs and 10 homers in their last 10 games), it'll be another walk in the park for the NL East leaders.

Minnesota Twins (-130) For some unknown reason, I like the Twins and think they have more heart and talent than most. And just when it looks like they are beginning to show signs of life, going 7-3 in their last 10 games, Kans... [More]

Pricetopher's Picks

Cleveland Indians (-110) Although the Indians have been struggling, Baltimore has lost 9 of their last 10 games. I see Josh Tomlin coming in and throwing a gem against the Orioles tonight. If you combine Tomlin's pitching with the fact that Cleveland literally can not let many more games pass them by (if any at all), I see them taking another "W" this evening.
Philadelphia Phillies (+105) With Vance Worley pitching as well as he has been, the Phillies should look to improve on their 57-34 record. Personally, I feel if Philly can put 1+ run(s) on the board, they should have a decent shot at being the San Diego-like Mets' offense. Blegh!
Boston Red Sox (+135) Although David Price is good, Tampa struggles at home while Boston puts the ball in play. Combine that with the fact that starter Andrew Miller has been pitching extremely well and has yet to lose a start, I see Boston getting by the Rays, Price or not.
Pittsburgh Pirates (-115) This Pirates team is EXTREMELY underrated in my eyes - they're actually pretty good! I see Jeff Karstens taking advantage of his opportunities and lowering his 2.55 ERA even further against the lowly Astros, who are also 1-9 in their last 10 games... and couldn't win a game if their lives depended on it.
Texas Rangers (-130) With Doug Fister's location being almost as dismal as his team's run production, I see the Rangers doing nothing but gaining momentum throughout the remainder of this series in Seattle.... [More]
