Last Night’s Record: 1-2
Post COVID Record: 3-9
Alright, here’s my spin zone that I think will work because I’m doing all baseball picks right now – If I was a baseball player I’d be batting .250 with one home run and two doubles. I think thats more than commendable for your everyday player in this era, right? I don’t know, maybe not. My confidence is at an all time low. Even the games that should be winning aren’t. Thankfully the NBA starts back tomorrow to give my picks a little bit of a chance to be better. But, for now, let’s just get my last night of baseball only over with.
Pick #1: New York Yankees ML (-210) @ Baltimore Orioles
Is this a great value pick? Obviously not. But I’m looking for wins tonight. I need them. And if the Yankees can’t beat the Orioles by more than a run with Gerrit Cole on the mound then they should disband as a team. You know what, this might be a great value pick because the odds should be closer to -1000.
Pick #2: Tampa Bay Rays @ Atlanta Braves UNDER 8.5 runs (-115)
Neither of these offenses have been up to much this season, and a Soroka/Morton pitching matchup should indicate a low scoring game. I’ve been wrong about almost every over/under this season, so I’m not feeling great, but if there was ever a time to bet the under, it’s now.
Pick #3: Los Angeles Angels ML (-210) vs. Seattle Mariners
This is another one that wouldn’t fall into the “bold prediction” category, but I’m fairly confident that the Angels are going to win this game. They need to get something going offensively, and I feel good about them doing it behind starting pitcher Andrew Heaney.
A parlay on these three bets will net +310 odds.
