4/9 VIP Picks


3-4 yesterday for a losing day. The high powered Yanks just lost 3 out of 4 to the Orioles and I’m starting to get a little worried about their pitching. There is some good opportunity out there to get the week started out right tonight!

MLB:

Rockies (Gray) (-190) ⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️ - I take moneylines up to (-200) especially when I’m going for a huge day. We just had this same matchup last Wednesday and the Rockies won 5-2. They now have a .337 avg and .503 slg% in 187 at bats against Richard. The Padres have a .215 avg in 65 at bats against Gray who pitched 7 scoreless innings and only allowed 4 hits against this same lineup last Wednesday. Play of the day 🚨 

Angels (Richards) (-128) ⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️ - the Angels are off to a good start and they are one of six teams with 7+ wins so far this season. Their lineup has been impressive and they are currently 3rd in runs per game behind the Braves & Pirates. Tonight they will take on the Rangers with Richards on the mound. He has held the Rangers to a .231 avg in 173 at bats. The Angels lineup will take on Doug Fister who Pujols, Upton, and Calhoun have taken deep.

Astros (Verlander) (-170) ⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️ - Verlander has seen this Twins lineup a lot when he was with the Tigers and he’s got good numbers against them. He’s held them to a .230 avg in 178 at bats. Only 4 players from the Astros lineup have seen Lynn but I’m expecting Verlander to come up with a big outting tonight and he will lead the Stros to a win.

Staying away from Syndergaard tonight after a late extra innings win in D.C. then a late night traveling to Miami.

Staying away from Kluber who has allowed the Tigers to hit .310 with a .517 slg% in 174 at bats 👀 

NBA:

Thunder ML 🏀🏀🏀🏀🏀 - it’s been a while since we took an NBA play but there have been some “meaningless” games played in the NBA over the last week and a half. Tonight is a spot that we’ve been waiting to cash in on. The Thunder can win and will clinch a playoff spot tonight when they visit the Heat who have already punched their ticket to the post season. The Heat could play for playoff positioning but it really depends on what other teams do more than what a win would do for them tonight. Either way, I love the Thunder tonight!
