VIP Picks Opening Day


Remember that when you bet on baseball, always select “Pitcher must start for action” on all our bets. We are very match up based and if another pitcher ends up starting for some reason, you get fucked. If you select pitcher must start for action you get your money back if they get scratched.

MLB:

Cubs (Lester) (-1.5) ⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️ - we tend to stay away from any moneylines higher than (-200) in baseball unless we are doing a parlay. Check out this Marlins lineup:


I was more scared as a freshman in high school on a haunted hay ride while fingering my girlfriend. Biggest threat would be Bour but that’s a lefty lefty matchup. Castro is in the 3 hole and he is 1-10 lifetime against Lester. Bryant and Contreras have struggled against Urena but the rest of the Cubs lineup is hitting .375 in 24 at bats. I like the Cubbies to open up our 2018 KofSports MLB Season.

Cardinals / Mets no runs in the first - ⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️ Syndergaard and Martinez must start for action. There were only 3 out of 14 games that had a run scored in the first inning last year on Opening Day. This is my no runs in the first play today. The Cardinals top 5 hitters have a .233 avg in 30 at bats & Ozuna has gone deep once against Syndergaard. The Mets top 5 hitters have a .250 avg in 52 at bats & Cespedes/Bruce have gone deep against Martinez. That scares me a bit but I’ll take my chances. No homeruns, no runs in the first.

Astros (Verlander) (-165) ⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️ - my World Series pick and they will be the team to bet on this year! Verlander gets the ball today and 8 of the 9 Rangers lineup have struggled against him in the past - .239 avg in 222 at bats. The Astros lineup is hitting .270 against Hamels with 7 career bombs - chicks dig the long ball.

Red Sox (Sale) ⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️ - don’t those baseball emojis look fucking sweet? I sure do think so. They certainly look a lot better than the Rays lineups numbers against Mr. Sale. (-155) is a HELL OF A SALE for this matchup. The Rays have a .196 avg in 92 at bats against Sale. The Sox starters have hit .294 against Archer with a .520 slg. (Slugging) %. They’ve hit Archer around pretty good in 163 at bats. For you daily fantasy guys, Mookie has gone deep 4 times against Archer.

Brewers (-115) ⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️ - Brewers are going to be a great, valuable team to bet on this year and it starts today. Let’s start with the Padres lineup history against Anderson. 6 batters have faced him before and they have a .212 avg in 33 at bats. Not a huge sample size but regardless, they have struggled. The Brewers in the other hand have been brewing up a nice double IPA against Richard. Their projected starting lineup is hitting .278 against Richard in 57 at bats. However, if they sit Villar and start Kyle Covers cousin Eric Sogard, they will go into the game with a .340 avg & .550 slg % against Richard. Great value on this moneyline at (-115)

Angels (Richards) (-125) ⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️ - All 9 in the Angels starting lineup have really hit Graveman HARD. They have put together a .301 avg in 143 at bats. 6 of the starting 9 for the A’s have seen Richards and they are only hitting .190 in 42 at bats. Another great value play!

Indians (Kluber) (-165) ⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️ - Kluber has dominated the Mariners lineup. 8 of the 9 starters have faced him and have a .237 avg in 76 at bats with more strikeouts than hits. Not a lot of history for the Indians vs Felix but he’s getting older and I’m confident in the tribe getting Kluber the run support he needs tonight!

Dodgers (Kershaw) / Red Sox (Sale) 2 team moneyline parlay (+119) ⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️ - this is the PLAY OF THE DAY ALERT 🚨- you’ve seen Sales matchup in the post above. Kershaw takes on the Giants lineup who has just a .207 avg in 285 at bats. They’ve also struck out 33% of the time. 2 team, 2 aces, 2 locks. (+119).

NHL:

Don’t worry! Just because baseball is starting doesn’t mean we won’t keep up the hot streak in hockey.

Blue Jackets 🏒🏒🏒🏒🏒 - NHL PLAY OF THE DAY 🚨- The Blue Jackets will be coming out fighting to close in on a playoff spot. The Flames on the other hand don’t really have much to play for as they are already eliminated from playoff contention. Blue Jackets are 9-1 in their last 10 games. Let’s go Blue Jackets!

Panthers 🏒🏒🏒🏒🏒 - another team looking to close in on a playoff spot, they are currently 3 points out of a Wild Card spot. The Senators have been eliminated already so they might as well not even show up. These two teams played 8 days ago and the Panthers won 7-2. 7-2! This is a hammer time opportunity.
