Rapid Fire MLB Predictions- May 5th


Home Team in Italics  and Best Bets indicated with **

Last Night: 7-6 (+90)

Overall Record: 16-12 (+450)

Best Bets: 2-1 (+115)


Philadelphia (+155) over St. Louis

Phillies have nice value today considering that while the majority of bettors are taking the Cardinals, most of the big money is on Philadelphia.

Cleveland (-120) over Detroit

This one’s a toss up, but I’ll go with the home team.

Baltimore (-105) over New York Yankees

I don’t care that Tanaka is on the hill for the Yankees, I’ll take the team that’s been playing better ball of late.

Texas (+165) over Toronto 

Too much value here on the moneyline to not take Texas.

**Arizona (+125) over Miami

I’m buying low on Arizona even though they have lost five straight.

Cincinnati (-110) over Milwaukee

The Reds have been respectable at home this year and the Brewers have been horrible on the road.

**Chicago Cubs (-145) over Washington

Two of baseball’s best battle at Wrigley- I’ll go with the Cubs considering roughly 65% of bettors are taking the underdog Nationals.

**Seattle (-110) over Houston

The Mariners have been a pleasant surprise this year, so I’ll roll with them.

Boston (+100) over Chicago White Sox

The Red Sox have quietly won eight out of ten and I kind of like Henry Owens.

San Diego (+155) over New York Mets

Am I an idiot for betting against deGrom?

Colorado (+125) over San Francisco

Matt Cain just doesn’t strike fear in opponents like he used to.
