Welp, 2 jackhammers hit us in the fucking face thanks to the Penguins. I can’t believe they lost last night. They have dominated the Flyers 5 games in a row this year but they had some tough luck last night. I thought you guys were all talking about me all night because my ears were ringing but then I realized that was just from all the times the Penguins hit the goal posts. Still a winning night 3-1-1 thanks to a 3-0 MLB night!
Nats (Scherzer) (-190) ⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️ - Scherzer has held the Rockies lineup to a .250 avg in 60 at bats with 18 strikeouts. Not eye popping numbers by any means BUT the Nats lineup on the other hand...they have a .316 avg in 38 at bats against Jon Gray who is coming off a start in which he allowed 7 earned runs to the Padres. Give me the Nats!
Angels (Richards) (-165) ⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️ - Richards is off to a great start this season and so is this Angels lineup. The Angels lineup has a .409 avg & .808 slg% in a small sample size against Junis. Kinsler, Upton, and Pujols have taken him deep. Richards has held the Royals lineup to a .243 avg in 37 at bats.
Pirates (Taillon) (-165) ⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️ - We have Tailon going today for the Pirates, and he has gotta be drooling at the thought of going up against this Marlins offense. He is coming off a 1 hitter vs the Reds last effort, and gets a Marlins team that is just as bad or worse today. Strikeout pitcher vs a strikeout prone team...yup!!
Predators / Avalanche OVER (5.5) 🏒🏒🏒🏒🏒 - the last 4 games between these two teams have gone over (5.5) - 5-2, 4-2, 4-3, and 5-2. The Predators won all four of these games and they are probably going to win again today. The moneyline is too big to take but I like the over in this one just as much as I like the Predators. Good value on the over, especially with the line at (5.5). 👀
Wizards (+8) 🏀🏀🏀🏀 - I get that this is a 1 vs 8 matchup but damn, 8 is a lot of points to give a team like the Wizards who have playoff experience. The Wizards beat the Raptors twice this season and one of those games was in Toronto. They essentially covered (+8) 3 out of 4 games against the Raptors. I’m not suggesting the Wizards win this one outright but 8 points? Give me the fucking Wiz.
2 team teaser:
Wizards (+12) / Pelicans (+9.5) 🏀🏀🏀🏀🏀 - you already know how I feel about the Wizards at (+8), add another 4 points and there’s not enough space for the basketball emojis to show my confidence. Pelicans at (+9.5) is very appealing. They beat the Blazers 2 times this season including one in Portland aka Rip City. Pelicans covered (+9.5) in 3 out of 4 games against the Blazers this season. I think the Pelicans have a good chance to win this one outright but I’ll be taking the free money by taking the (+9.5) cushion.
