5/25 VIP Picks


2-1 last night and we are now 6-1 in the last two days! Feeling pretty fucking good going into the weekend.

MLB:

Red Sox (ERod) (-190) - The Braves will be making the trip to Fenway Park for an inter league matchup this weekend. The Braves just dropped 2 out of 3 against the Phillies and the Sox have won 4 of their last 5. This Sox lineup has really pounded Teheran in the past and they own a .378 avg & .703 slg% in 37 at bats against him. No doubt in my mind that the Sox bats get to him early and often tonight.

Nationals / Marlins Under (7) - we have Scherzer going for the Nats who has not allowed more than 2 runs in any of his 10 starts this season. I think he’s good for 2 runs or less tonight and he should go deep into the game. Urena is 0-7 but he’s only allowed 5 runs in one of his starts this season. The Nats last 2 and the Marlins last 3 have gone under 7. Scherzer has held the Marlins to a .244 avg in 123 at bats and Urena has held this Nats lineup to a .237 in 38 at bats. I’ll take the under in this one. I also think the Nats win this game - bold statement with a -240 ML but Urena is 0-7. There’s two types of people in the world, those who take free money and those who don’t.

Mets / Brewers Under (8) - seems like we just played this one, oh that’s right we did last night and we hit. We have an even better matchup tonight. Syndergaard going for the Mets and he’s held this Brewers lineup to a .170 avg in 47 at bats. Guerra will take the ball for the Brew Crew and he’s held the Mets to a .154 avg in 26 at bats. This game screams under at the top of its lungs.

Mariners (Paxton) (-190) - huge moneyline here and the Mariners have won 7 of their last 10 BUT they’ve only covered the -1.5 in 1 of those 7 wins. I’ll pay the price on the moneyline tonight. Paxton has held the Twins to a .206 avg in 63 at bats. Romero has been good so far and the Mariners lineup has not faced him before. I’ll ride with the hot team in this one and take the Mariners.

Dodgers (Stripling) (-1.5) - The Dodgers have covered the -1.5 in each of their last 3 wins. Tonight they take on Clayton Richard and they have EYE POPPING numbers against him - .424 avg, 14 doubles, & 6 homeruns in 118 at bats. This is hammer time, this is JACKHAMMER, this is how you start your long weekend with a fucking BANG!


NBA:

Teaser

Celtics (+10.5) / Over (198.5) - The Cavs have played a lot better at home in this series than they have on the road. I expect that to continue tonight but I don’t think this game will be a blowout. I think the Celtics are going to come out and give everything they’ve got to go for the win tonight. LeBron facing elimination is a recipe for him to have a big game. I like the over teased to 198.5 since both games in Cleveland this series have gone over that total. The Celtics have covered +10.5 6 out of 8 games against the Cavs this season. I’m really liking this teaser and I’m breaking out the jackhammer for this one too!
