Rapid Fire MLB Predictions- May 4th

Felix Hernandez

Full slate of games today, most of which are on the earlier side. Let’s see if I can build off yesterday’s momentum. *Home Team listed in Italics. **Two aster-risks indicate one of my three best bets of the day in terms of value.

Last Night: 9-6 (+360)

Overall Record: 9-6 (+360)

Record Picking Favorites: 5-2 (+200)

Record Picking Underdogs: 4-4 (+160)

**Cincinnati (+115) over San Francisco

I’ve been burned the last two nights picking the Reds, but fuck it. Roll tide.

**Pittsburgh (+125) over Chicago Cubs

The Cubs have clearly been the best team in baseball so far, but sell high while you can when a home underdog like Pittsburgh has this much value.

New York Mets (-205) over Atlanta

I correctly called the Braves upsetting the Mets last night, but lightning does not strike twice.

Milwaukee (+120) over Los Angeles Angels

Who the hell are the Angels to be receiving 84% of bets?

Kansas City (+135) over Washington

Yes, Stephen Strasburg is pitching, but I believe in sticking with my whole “take the home underdog” mantra.

**Seattle (-115) over Oakland

Yes, the A’s are home underdogs, but I don’t believe in sticking with my whole “take the home underdog” mantra.

Colorado (-105) over San Diego

Yeah, I don’t know either.

Cleveland (-195) over Detroit

Hello Cleveland!

Baltimore (-125) over New York Yankees

Thhhhheeeeeee Yankees suck!

Texas (+170) over Toronto

Yeah, -185 is just a little too steep of a price for me…..

Miami (-185) over Arizona

…except when you are betting on Jose Fernandez.

Tampa Bay (-165) over Los Angeles Dodgers

I kind of like the Dodgers as big underdogs, but I kind of like Drew Smyly even more.

Minnesota (+150) over Houston

People don’t seem to realize that Houston isn’t that good.
