5/16 VIP Pick Review

I’m going to start featuring my VIP picks and analysis on the free blog after they are completed to show you guys what I offer on a daily basis. MLB: Phillies (Pivetta) - this line isn’t posted yet but the game starts at noon EST. Grab the moneyline whenever it’s posted. The Orioles are coming off a game where they scored 17 runs but they’ve had a few days off and reality has set back in for their season. The Phillies are hot and they will take on Andrew Cashner who has struggled this season and against them in the past. This Phils lineup has a .311 avg in 45 at bats against him. Herrera has taken him deep twice. I like the Phillies as our first step out of the hole. One step at a time.

Result - Win - Phillies 4 Orioles 1

$100 paid $87.72 Blue Jays (Happ) (-131) - The second step for us will be the Blue Jays and this is also a Day game so get it in early. Happ has basically been Cy Young himself against this Mets lineup and he’s held them to a .186 avg in 86 at bats. No history on the Jays against Wheeler but they should be able to get Happ the run support he needs.

Result - Win - Jays 12 Mets 1

$100 paid $76.34 Braves (McCarthy) (-107) - The Braves have a really good matchup tonight against the Cubbies. They will take on Tyler Chatwood who the 5 guys in their lineup who have faced him have a .414 avg against him. McCarthy will be going for the Braves and he’s got pounded the last two times out, that’s the reason for the good price on this one. He does have decent numbers against this Cubs lineup and he’s held them to a .250 avg in 48 at bats. I’m relying on the Braves out slugging the Cubs tonight.

Result - Win - Braves 4 Cubs 1

$100 paid $93.46
