5/10 VIP Picks


2-1 yesterday to get back to winning and a blown lead by the Red Sox bullpen that cost us a 3-0 night, fuckers! Not a huge slate tonight but a few good value plays.

MLB:

Royals (Kennedy) (-120) - Chris Tillman must start for O’s for this one to have action. How many times will the Orioles keep putting this guy out there as a starter?  After his last start, 7 earned in 1 inning against the Angels, his ERA is back up over 9. Looks like he will be taking another pounding tonight because the Royals have a .319 avg in 119 at bats against him. When’s the last time a team has scored 10 runs in the first inning twice in a series? Probably never but there’s a realistic chance tonight with Tillman on the mound. The Royals have scored 18 runs in the last two days! Kennedy has been OK for the Royals this season and they should get him plenty of run supports tonight.

Braves (Foltynewicz) (-120) - Another good value play with the Braves here who have won 7 of their last 10 games. Caleb Smith has been good this season for the Marlins but the only other Top 3 lineup he has faced this season is the Yankees and they scored 5 earned in 2.1 innings. I think the Braves bats will be out and about in South Beach tonight 🏖 

Cardinals (Mikolas) (-136) - Aj Ellis is the only Padre who has faced Mikolas before so not a lot of history to go with here. Mikolas is 4-0 with a 2.70 ERA this season, he’s also got a sweet stache. The Cardinals have a .273 avg against Lyles in just 33 at bats so a small sample size. I like the Cardinals to win a low scoring game in Petco Park tonight.

NHL:

Jets (+135) - 66% of the public is betting on the Predators in tonight’s Game 7 and I’m not sure why? Sure, they have home ice and the SMASHVILLE crowd will be going crazy but the away team has won 4 out of the 6 games this series so we can throw the home ice argument right out the fucking window. Next I want to point out goal differential this series - Preds wins +4, +1, & +1 Jets wins +4, +3, & +3. Jets are +4 in goal differential and they have been the more dominant team in this series. They’ve already won two games in Nashville this series and I like their chances tonight. Give me the Jets at plus money! This moneylines got me like:
