Rapid Fire MLB Predictions- May 8th


I’m coming off another profitable day at the office, yet I’m hoping my best bets can turn around.

Home Team in Italics  and Best Bets indicated with **

Last Night:  9-7 (+165 if betting $100 on every game)

Overall Record: 41-27 (+1,430)

Best Bets: 6-6 (-80)


Los Angeles (+155) over Toronto

In terms of run differential, these teams are even, so I think it’s a no-brainer to take the Dodgers at +155.

Philadelphia (-115) over Miami

I’d normally take the home underdog here, but Aaron Nola is off to an All-Star caliber start a month into the season.

Milwaukee (+100) over Cincinnati

Let’s go with the Brewers, I guess.

Texas (+130) over Detroit

Justin Verlander has given up six home runs in his last four starts, which poses trouble against a solid Rangers lineup.

Cleveland (-135) over Kansas City

I’ll continue to back the Indians because I feel like it.

Atlanta (+130) over Arizona

Home underdog, baby.

Oakland (+140) over Baltimore

Baltimore is receiving 82% of moneyline bets and that just doesn’t sit too well with me.

**Houston (-110) over Seattle

After betting against Houston repeatedly, I’m now buying low on the Astros.

Minnesota (+180) over Chicago White Sox

I like Jose Quintana, but there’s no reason the White Sox should be this favored.

St. Louis (-120) over Pittsburgh

Hammer the Cardinals, hammer the Cardinals, hammer the Cardinals.

**Chicago Cubs (-230) over Washington

Jake Arrieta.

Tampa Bay (+115) over Los Angeles Angels

I can’t trust the Angels, so I like the underdog Rays.

Colorado (+175) over San Francisco

The Giants are receiving overwhelming support today, so I’d rather be on the same side as the House.

**New York Mets (-150) over San Diego

Call me biased, but I take Matt Harvey every time he pitches.

Boston (+105) over New York Yankees

Red Sox avoid sweep with Steven Wright on the hill.
