4/8 VIP Picks


Not a huge day yesterday but a winning day regardless, I’ll take it. On to Sunday!

PGA:

The Masters.

4th Round matchups:

Watson over Leishman - these two have been going opposite directions over the last three days. Leishman shot 70, 67, 73 and Bubba shot a 73, 69, and 68. I like the trends to continue and Bubba to win this matchup today.

Rory over Reed - both of these guys have been lighting it up this weekend. Currently in 1st & 2nd, Reed will certainly need to fight off a strong push from Rory this afternoon. Rory shot a 65 yesterday and I think he might even go lower than that today. It’ll be interesting to see how Reed handles the Sunday pressure.

MLB: we really need a big day in MLB so we are going to play some high percentage plays today, no parlays.

Phillies (Arrieta) (-185) ⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️ - oh boy it has certainly been awhile since we have been able to lay some cash on Jake Arrieta. He will take on the Marlins “lineup” who only has 20 career at bats against him. Bour and Maybin are the only two who have got a hit against him. The Phillies will take on ex school teacher Trevor Richards who got pounded in his first start allowing 5 earned runs in 4.1 innings pitched. Big moneyline but worth some big money today.

Yankees (Montgomery) (-195) ⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️ - Montgomery has held the Orioles lineup to a .215 avg in 65 at bats. On the flip side, the Yankees only have 28 at bats against Wright Jr. but they have a .321 avg and Judge + Sanchez have hit homeruns against him. The Yanks will probably cover the (-1.5) today but I’m more confident in hammering this big moneyline.

Angels (Ohtani) (-168) ⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️ - He will be taking on the A’s who he beat last Sunday. He made one mistake in that game but only allowed 3 earned runs in 6 innings. The Angels gave Ohtani 7 runs last Sunday and I think they will give him some more runs today. They are hitting just under .300 in 171 at bats against Graveman. The Angels have taken Graveman deeper than his grave too - Pujols 4, Trout 2, Calhoun 2, Cozart 1, & Valbuena 1. Angels are looking good in this one. Play of the day 🚨 

Dodgers (Kershaw) (-200) ⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️ - we stayed away from Kershaw his last time out and he lost. He’s going to get his first win of the season today. He’s held this Giants lineup to a .204 avg in 539 at bats - big enough sample size for me. He lost his first game of the season to the Giants where he only allowed one run on a homerun. Ty Blach was good in his first game against the Dodgers this season where he went 5 scoreless innings. However, he got touched up for 6 earned in 4.1 innings pitched against the Mariners 5 days ago. Look for the Dodgers bats to get to him today and Kershaw will get his first win.

NHL:

Last game of the regular season, and it’s coming at us like a beach ball in slow motion, hit it!!

Bruins (-1.5) 🏒🏒🏒🏒🏒 - a very interesting situation has developed over the last 24 hours. To start, the Flyers won which eliminated the Panthers from the playoffs. That gives them absolutely no reason to be motivated to play today. Next, the Bruins won last night while the Lightning lost. The Bruins will play the last game of the season today (Lightning do not have any games remaining) and they are one point behind the Lightning. A win will give them 2 points and sole possession of first place in the East. Look for an absolute route tonight.
