4/28 VIP Picks


One goal away from a 3-0 night. I’ll assume you all hammered both jackhammers so those were a wash and the Cubs won so we had ourselves a 2–1 day, I’ll take that.

MLB: I have been using the emoji ranking system for baseball picks but I’ve got a new idea I’m going to try out. I’ll rank the plays a Single, Double, Triple, Homerun, or GRANDSLAM based on how confident I am.

Twins (Odorizzi) (-150) Double - Odorizzi got knocked around in his last outting against the Yankees. He will have every opportunity to bounce back today when he takes on this Reds lineup who he has held to a .185 avg in a small sample size of 27 at bats. The Twins bats will be up against Sal Romano who has allowed 3 or more earned runs in 3 of his 5 starts. The Twins have lost 8 in a row and you guys know I like to bet against teams on these kind of streaks but I think today’s the day the Twins snap their losing streak and get the win.

Cardinals (Flaherty) (-120) Triple - Flaherty will be making his second start of the season today after being recalled from AAA. He was good in his first big league start of the season where he went 5 innings and only allowed 1 earned run against the Brewers. This guy has a NASTY slider. He should be even more comfortable in his second start today. Cardinals will take on Trevor Williams who they own and have a .388 avg & .714 slg% in 49 at bats. Great value here.

Red Sox / Rays UNDER (8.5) Triple - Price and Chirinos must start for action on this one. Price has been dominant against the Rays this season in two starts he’s gone 14 innings and hasn’t allowed an earned run. He’s held this Rays lineup to a .126 avg in 127 career at bats. Chirinos has faced the Sox twice this season and he hasn’t allowed an earned run in 9 innings pitched. He’s held the Sox lineup to a .143 avg in 28 at bats. Look for quality starts from each starter today and a pitchers duel in Boston.

NHL:

Golden Knights ML 🏒🏒🏒🏒🏒 - get it as early as possible because it’ll keep dropping throughout the day. They completely dominated the Sharks in Game One and I don’t expect much to change for Game Two. The Sharks will do everything they can to slow the game down but I don’t think that will be enough. The Knights are now 4-1 against the Sharks this season. They are also hotter than they’ve been all season and have won all five of their playoff games. Typically people make bad decisions in Vegas on a Saturday night but I can assure you, this is a good one. Go Knights!

NBA:

Pelicans (+9) 🏀🏀🏀🏀 - the Pelicans come into this game HOT. They swept the Blazers in the first round and they are hungry for more. Yes, the Warriors beat them 3 out of 4 times in the regular season but the Dubs will still be missing Curry. The Pelicans won the most recent meeting between these two teams on Apr 7 126-120. 9 points is just too much for a team this hot and they match up well against this Warriors team.

2 team teaser: Pelicans (+13) / Celtics (-0.5) 🏀🏀🏀🏀🏀 Yes Please! I like the Celtics to win this Game Seven at home and feed off of the energy in the building from the fans who will start drinking at 2 or 3 for the Red Sox game and then head over to the Greatest Bar then to The Garden for Game Seven. I already like Pelicans getting 9 but teasing it up to 13 basically makes it a lock. This play is looking gooooood. 👀

BOSTON MONEYLINE PARLAY - Red Sox / Bruins / Celtics (+425) ⚾️🏒🏀 - call me a homer on this one but this one has a legit shot of hitting. Price check has dominated the Rays as you saw in the write up above. The Bruins have dominated the Lightning dating back to last year and they have won 8 of the last 10. There’s also 71% of the public betting on the Lightning. The home 🏡 team has won every game in this series between the Celtics and Bucks. It’s Saturday night, it’s the Garden, and it’s going to be FUCKING ROCKING! LETS FUCKING GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
