Rapid Fire MLB Predictions- May 7th

David Price

Although baseball certainly takes a back seat today with all the horse racing, NBA, and NHL playoff games, our daily MLB predictions still must be made.

Home Team in Italics  and Best Bets indicated with **

Last Night:  8-5 (+235 betting $100 on every game)

Overall Record: 32-20 (+1,265 betting $100 on every game)

Best Bets: 5-4 (+65)


**Boston (-135) over New York Yankees

Red Sox hitters are hitting .394 lifetime against Nathan Eovaldi and, oh yeah, David Price is on the hill for the Sox.

Oakland (-110) over Baltimore– Game 1

Baltimore (-130) over Oakland- Game 2

It’s tough to take two in a doubleheader, so I like a split in Baltimore today.

Los Angeles Dodgers (-160) over Toronto

Kershaw > Dickey every time.

Detroit (+120) over Texas

High levels of support for the Rangers, but I like the home underdog.

**St. Louis (-140) over Pittsburgh

It didn’t work last night, but my strategy for the time-being is to bet on St. Louis based on the disparity between their record and their run differential.

Chicago Cubs (-145) over Washington

It’s hard not to bet on the best team in baseball.

Colorado (+160) over San Francisco

I’ll the Rockies considering the Giants are the heavy public betting favorites and it’s almost always best to be on the same side as the house.

**Cleveland (-110) over Kansas City

Despite 69% of bettors backing the Royals, the line has moved in favor of the Indians, which signals that the big money is on Cleveland.

Cincinnati (-115) over Milwaukee

I guess I should just continue to roll with the Reds considering I’ve picked them to win their last three games.

Philadelphia (+115) over Miami

Time to sell high on the streaking Marlins.

Atlanta (-120) over Arizona

The Braves are a horrific 1-13 at home, but I’m figuring that something has to go right for them at some point.

Seattle (+130) over Houston

I hate to bet against Dallas Keuchel because he is on my fantasy team, but I just hate Houston’s value right now.

Chicago White Sox (-210) over Minnesota

If you’re going to splurge, might as well splurge on Chris Sale.

New York Mets (-150) over San Diego

Bartolo Colon pitches the Mets out of a two-game slump.

Los Angeles Angels (+115) over Tampa Bay

Take home underdogs when you can.
