4/15 VIP PICKS


5-0-1 last night, someone get me a beer! We are ON FIRE! 17-6 (74%) last 23 MLB plays! 12-1-2 since Thursday...that’s really an unbelievable run! I’ll ride that wave and I hope you guys are too. There’s a lot of opportunity today and I think it’s time for a serious heat check parlay 🔥🔥🔥 YOU READY!? LFG!

MLB:

Starting by suggesting a team not to bet on today, Red Sox. Sale has great numbers against the Orioles but there is freezing rain and a winter weather advisory in effect in Boston today. I’m staying away from this game because I’d hate to have Sale go 2 innings then get a rain delay for 3 hours and then rely on someone like Heath Hembree coming out of the rain delay.

Ok, now we go to the teams we ARE betting on.

Cardinals (Martinez) (-165) ⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️ - the Cardinals have won 3 in a row against the Reds and they will be going for the sweep today! I’m taking moneyline because it’s not a bad price for this matchup but if you want better odds, the run line isn’t a bad option at even money. They won game one of this series 13-4, game two 5-3, and game three 6-1. Carlos Martinez is pitching for the Cards today and he’s held the Reds to a .262 avg in 103 at bats. The Cards get to take on Homer Bailey who they have a .462 avg and .689 slg% in 122 at bats. Molina and Carpenter make up about 70 of those at bats and the fucking rake against Homer. Cardinals today!

Mets (Syndergaard) (-200) ⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️ - huge moneyline here and it’ll continue to drop as we get closer to first pitch at 1:10 EST but it’s worth hitting hard. Syndergaard has held this Brewers lineup to a .222 avg in a small sample size 18 at bats. He’s off to a good start this year so I’m riding him today. The Mets should give him some good run support. They have a .306 avg in 98 at bats against Chacin. Nothing else to say other than LETS GO METS!

Angels (Ohtani) (-1.5) 🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀 - first let me start this one by saying I respect all races and I am not by any means racist. Please reach out to me directly if anything I say ever offends you and I will certainly apologize and make sure I don’t offend you again. With that said, I’d like a fucking order of CWAB WANGOONS with my Ohtani (-1.5) today and could you please get me extra duck sauce with that? Ohtani is off to a great start this season 2-0 with a 2.08 era and 18 strikeouts in 2 games. I do think part of his success as a pitcher is coming due to these lineups never facing him before but don’t get me wrong, he’s got filthy stuff! The Angels have won 7 in a row and they currently lead the league in runs scored per game at 6.44.


Astros (Verlander) (-1.5) ⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️ - peep the moneyline on this one lol! (-340) and it could very well get to (-500) by first pitch at 8 pm EST tonight. That’s like a heavy NFL favorite. This is still baseball and anything can happen but check these numbers out. Verlander has held the Rangers lineup to a .232 avg in 168 at bats. He went 6 scoreless innings on Opening Day against this lineup. The Astros will be taking on Bartolo Colon (yeah, he’s still playing) who they have a .328 avg & .516 slg% in 64 at bats. These two teams split the first two games of the series but the Stros will take game 3 tonight with Verlander on the hill.

NHL:

Capitals / Blue Jackets OVER (5.5) 🏒🏒🏒🏒🏒 - as you guys know, I love my overs at (5.5), especially with trends like this one. With the over hitting in game one of this series, that makes 4 out of the 5 games between these two teams this season that have gone over (5.5). I’ll take my 80% odds and roll with it. Scores between these two teams all season - 4-3, 3-2, 4-2, 5-1, & 4-3. If I had to pick a side, I’d take Capitals to win and even up the series but the real winner in this one is the over!

Penguins / Flyers OVER (6) 🏒🏒🏒🏒🏒 - we got a little lucky by getting the push on this same pick Friday night with 4 goals in the 3rd period. However, that makes 6 out of 6 games between these two teams that went over or pushed at 6 this season. 5-4, 5-1, 5-2, 5-4, 7-0, & 5-1. I’m really liking this one because it’s in Philly and both 5-4 scores from earlier this season came when they were playing in Philly. You guys who have been VIP for a while know we always take the OVER in Flyers day games AND you know we always win!

NBA:

thUNDER (206) 🏀🏀🏀🏀🏀 - If you’re confused, let me clear, take thUNDERRR not the Thunder. Take the UNDER in this game between the Thunder and Jazz. All 4 games between these two teams went under (206) this season. You have to think that the defense between these two teams will intensify today since it’s the playoffs. Scores from the 4 games they already played this season? 96-87, 100-94, 107-79,  & 103-89. I’m really liking thUNDER in this one!

Pacers  (+6.5) 🏀🏀 - sorry Quinn but I have to make this pick today. The Pacers won 3 out of 4 against the Cavs this season including 2 wins that came IN Cleveland. So why aren’t you on the moneyline Kof!? I wanted to be but the fact that Oladipo is dealing with a right foot injury and he is “probable” makes me hesitant to hop on the (+260) train. If he was 100% healthy, I’d be on the Pacers moneyline 💯. Oladipo played a big part in the 3 wins against the Cavs this season by scoring 23, 33, & 19 in those games. His foot and how much it effects him is the reason why this one is only a 2x 🏀 confidence play. And to protect yourself, wait as long as you can before you put this bet in just in case the Pacers announce that Oladipo can’t play.
