4/18 VIP Picks


4-1 for another winning night last night with our only loss in the Capitals / Blue Jackets game with the over not hitting due to a goal taken away in regulation and both goalies standing on their heads. I’ll take it though! Let’s see what we have for today/tonight.

MLB:

Orioles (Gausman) (-117) ⚾️⚾️⚾️ - Gausman has improved on each of his three starts this season. He got knocked around by the Twins in his first start for 6 earned in 4 innings. Since then he’s had two good outings against the Yankees who he held to 2 earned runs in 5 innings and the Jays who he held to 3 earned runs in 6 innings with 7 strikeouts. Today, he will get to face the worst lineup he’s seen all season and that should lead to an even better game for him. 6 of the 9 players in the Tigers lineup have seen him and he’s held them to a .121 avg in 58 at bats. The Orioles lineup doesn’t have much history against Boyd but they are 9 for 20 which is pretty good! I’ll take the O’s at a good price for this matchup.

Angels / Red Sox OVER (8) ⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️ - Skaggs and Porcello must start for action on this bet. Two of the best lineups in baseball will square of in LA tonight with some hitter friendly weather. The Angels will get to go up against Rick Porcello who they have a .311 avg in 151 at bats. 5 of the 9 guys in their lineup have gone deep before against Porcello. The Sox bats were hot last night against Ohtani and they put up 10 runs. Tonight they will take on Tyler Skaggs who they don’t have much history against but they are hitting .400 in 20 at bats against him. Tonight should be a closer game than last night but I expect both teams to score some RUNS!

NHL:

Penguins 🏒🏒🏒🏒🏒 - Diddddd someone mention great value?? Penguins are (-145) in a matchup that they should truly dominate. An already overpowered team in the Flyers were a victim of some friendly fire yesterday at practice as their leading scorer in the playoffs and first line center Sean Couturier went down with a lower body injury and does not appear to be available for tonight’s game. This is a huge blow to a team that already lacks star power. I don’t think I need to say much about the Penguins star power, as their record over the past several years with the same core of players has been quite good. Look for the Penguins to come out pressing tonight and get to an early lead that they won’t give back.

Avalanche 🏒🏒🏒 - Well it worked so good the first time, why not try it again?? We are 2/2 in picking the winner of these two teams and we are ready to make it 3/3. Avalanche have been a completely different team at home than away and with their hometown crowd going crazy, this young team feeds off of that energy. There is no question that the Preds are a very good hockey team, just check the record. However, at (+150), the value is all on the Avs tonight. Don’t put your mortgage on it but the Avs are worth a play here tonight. 

Sharks / Ducks OVER (5) 🏒🏒🏒🏒🏒 - I LOVE this play with the over set at (5). The Sharks are coming off Game Three where they scored 8 goals themselves. 9 goals total. They go for the sweep tonight and the Sharks will FEAST off of the energy from their fans. The Sharks might not cover this themselves again but this game is going over. Bottoms off ladies, we are going skinny dipping in the SHARK TANK tonight!
