SteveA's Postseason MLB

Regular Season:  +17.68 units

I took a week off after the regular season.   I was really busy, and playoff games are very tough.   Plays you play for value based on the line during the regular season don't seem to be as easy to find in the postseason.

Anyway, time to fire up the postseason betting:

   Game 3:  Dodgers/Cardinals over 7.5 +105 (Intertops)

   Cardinals +7.5 vs Broncos (Intertops)

   Cincinnati -3.5 vs Memphis (Intertops)

SteveA's MLB September 12

Wednesday:  2-2, 0.00 units
No plays Thursday
Season:  +11.25 units

   Indians +140 vs Tigers (Intertops) -- Carrasco has pitched great, Price has been more up and down.    This line should be closer to even.

   Mets +135 vs Nationals (Intertops) -- Nats not the same team on the road as at home.  Mets playing good recent baseball, won 7 of 9.

   Rangers +128 vs Braves (Intertops) -- Yeah, the Rangers are awful.   But Atlanta is sub-.500 on the road, has not been paying well recently (haven't won consecutive games in over 2 weeks).   And Holland's return from his knee injury has been about the only bright spot of hte second half of the season for the Rangers.

   Reds +123 vs Brewers (Intertops) -- Both teams have been pretty horrible for the last several weeks.   Pitching matchup is pretty even.   I'll take the plus money.

   Royals -1.5 runs +115 vs Red Sox (Intertops) -- better team, way better starter, at home. 

   Cardinals -1.5 runs +100 vs Rockies (Intertops) -- ditto

SteveA's MLB September 8

Yesterday:  3-2, +1.43 units
Season:  +10.19 units

   Royals +120 vs Tigers (Intertops) -- Cap this one pretty much as a dead even game, maybe even a slight edge to KC.   Have to take the plus money in that situation.

SteveA's MLB August 31

I posted these picks about 6 hours ago but mis-titled the thread with yesterday's date, so I'm reposting them to get them in the right titled thread:

Yesterday:  0-1, -1.00 units
Season:  +7.64 units

   Mets -115 vs Phillies (Intertops)

   Reds +122 vs Pirates (Intertops)

   Orioles -1.5 runs +115 vs Twins (Intertops)

   White Sox +102 vs Tigers (Intertops)


And now I'm adding:

   Padres +153 vs Dodgers (Intertops) -- Dodgers poor #s vs LHP, Padres' great home record, Ryu uncertain status coming off DL... all leads me to believe Padres havea  40%+ chance of winning here.

SteveA's NFL Preseason Week 4

Last week:  1-3-1, -2.15 units
Preseason:  6-6, -0.50 units

   Dolphins PK -120 vs Rams (Intertops) -- Rams aren't going to risk new starting QB Shaun Hill for much more than a series, so they will essentially be down to their 3rd and 4th string QBs for the vast majority of this game.

   Patriots +3 -105 vs Giants (Intertops) -- Patriots have decided that Jimmy Garappolo is going to be their #2 QB and QB of the future, and they are going to let him go the whole game tonight.   Mallet won't even play as they don't want to risk injury that would damage his trade value.  I think to get a good look at Garappolo, the Patriots will play this game fairly straight.

   Redskins +3 -120 vs Buccaneers (Intertops) -- Kirk Cousins is having a great preseason and he will probably play the bulk of this game.   And the Redskins' #3 QB, Colt McCoy, has some NFL experience too.

SteveA's College Football Opening Weekend

   Washington State -7.5 vs Rutgers (Intertops) -- Leach has things on the upswing at Wazzu, while Rutgers is just plain bad.

SteveA's MLB August 27

Yesterday:  2-2, +0.10 units

   Marlins +135 vs Angels (Intertops) -- Similar to Monday night's play on Miami.   Better starting pitcher, good underdog price, and facing a lefty, which they hit better than righties.

SteveA's NFL Preseason Week 2

Week 1:  1-1-1, -1.10 units

   Jaguars +3 -115 vs Bears (Intertops)


Posted Monday, August 11, 2014 06:47 PM

SteveA's MLB August 11

Yesterday:  2-1, +1.50 units
Season:  +10.22 units

   Orioles -119 vs Yankees (Intertops) -- Honestly with the pitchers they are throwing out there and the holes in their lineup, I don't understand how the Yankees have hung above .500 this long.   But it has to come to an end, and the Orioles are red hot.   They haven't lost 2 games in a row since June, and their slumbering bats have awoken the last week or so.

   Pirates +102 vs Tigers (Intertops) -- Tigers bullpen is shredded with Soria going on the DL and the 19 inning game yesterday.  And they just aren't playing very well, nor has Verlander been his normal dominant self.   Pirates are at home, and right now they have the better pitcher on the mound.

   Mariners -1.5 runs +100 vs Blue Jays (Intertops)
