5/16 VIP Picks

I usually say it takes 3 days to make it a cold streak but it’s a fucking cold streak. Nothing going the way as I thought the last two days and it’s made for two pretty tough days in a row. Need to put together a winning day today.


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.

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.

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.

Great start to the day going 2-0 but I’m not adding any NHL or NBA picks for tonight. I’m going for a 3-0 day and I’ll be happy with that after the last two days. If you guys really want to bet the NBA or NHL games just DMA me and of course I’ll give you my input. I’m just not super confident in those plays tonight and I’m not comfortable betting those when we are recovering from the last two days.
