I’m coming off my best night of betting so far, so let’s see if I can keep it rolling.

Home Team in Italics  and Best Bets indicated with **

Last Night: 8-3 (+580 betting $100 on every game)

Overall Record: 24-15 (+1,030 betting $100 on every game)

Best Bets: 4-2 (+215)

 

Washington (-105) over Chicago Cubs

With Max Scherzer on the mound, the Nationals have the clear pitching edge over John Lackey and the Cubs.

Oakland (-110) over Baltimore

If you don’t know Rich Hill, I suggest you become aware of him.

New York Yankees (-115) over Boston

I’ll selling high on an undefeated Rick Porcello.

Los Angeles Dodgers (+130) over Toronto

Toronto is coming off a big win last night over Texas, but I’ll side with Kenta Meada and the Dodgers in this matchup of underachieving clubs.

Miami (-125) over Philadelphia

The Marlins are 9-1 in their last 10?

Cincinnati (-130) over Milwaukee

Same logic as last night- the Reds play well at home, the Brewers play lousy on the road.

**Texas (+120) over Detroit

Sharp money is pouring in on Cole Hamels and the underdog Rangers, so I love them to win tonight.

Cleveland (-140) over Kansas City

Danny Salazar is on my fantasy team, so I’m sticking with one of my guys.

Arizona (-155) over Atlanta

Zack Greinke is also on my fantasy team (I know, my team is stacked).

Chicago White Sox (-125) over Minnesota

The Twins are a putrid 2-12 on the road and I like the way Chicago has been playing.

Seattle (-110) over Houston

I’ll continue to bet against the Astros and their -25 run differential.

**St. Louis (-120) over Pittsburgh

Start betting on the Cardinals: the disparity between their record and their +45 run differential means they should get hot in the coming weeks.

San Francisco (-200) over Colorado

Warning: I could very easily get burned on this one because I’m only taking the Giants because of Bumgarner.

**New York Mets (-150) over San Diego

The two biggest upsets I’ve picked (Atlanta +200 and San Diego last night at +155) have both been against the Mets, but New York rebounded last time so I’ll pick them to win with Syndergaard tonight.
