5/8 VIP Picks

1-2 last night for a losing night and the hot streak comes to an end. Half a point away from the NBA teaser! One ending is just another beginning so let’s start it up tonight!

Red Sox / Yankees OVER (8.5) - Pomeranz will start for the Sox and he’s struggled so far this season. He comes into tonight’s game with an ERA over 6 and this Yanks lineup has a .312 avg in over 100 at bats against him. Severino is going for the Yanks and he’s been great this season but this Sox lineup got to him for 5 earned in 5 innings earlier this season. I think we are in for a slugfest tonight at Yankee Stadium.

Indians (Kluber) (-190) - big moneyline here but for good reason. This Indians lineup has pounded Wade Miley in the past - .308 avg & .577 slg% in 104 at bats. 5 batters from the Brewers lineup have seen Kluber and he’s held them in check. I like the Indians to run away with this one.

Nats (Hellickson) (-130) - best value play of the day and let’s see if the Nats can win for us three days in a row. They will take on Clayton Richard who they have a .357 avg & .571 slg% against in 42 at bats. Hellickson has been solid for this Nats this season and that should continue tonight. Three in a row!
