5/9 VIP Picks

Overall a losing night but we hit the Warriors (-5) with them winning by 23! 


Braves (Sanchez) (+157) - huge underdog today but this one is looking like a good value play. The Braves lineup will be up against Alex Wood who they have really swung the wood against in the past. They have a .385 avg in 52 at bats. Sanchez is coming off of a start where he went 7 scoreless against the Nats.

Blue Jays (Sanchez) (-130) - Sanchez has held this Orioles lineup to a .229 avg in 157 at bats. The Jays will be up against Gausman who they have a .299 avg in 117 at bats. I think the Jays can get the run support that Sanchez will need and they get the win today.

Diamondbacks (Koch) (+125) - This Dbacks lineup comes into today’s game with a .316 avg in 76 at bats against Chad Bettis. The DBacks just beat the Rockies yesterday 9-4 and they have a better matchup today. The DBacks have won 7 out of their last 10 so they have been playing good ball and I expect that to continue today.

Yankees / Mets Over (8) - Here’s a game that I’m expecting a lot of runs to be scored tonight. German will start for the Yankees and he has allowed 19 runs in his last four starts. The Yanks lineup has a .325 avg in 40 at bats against Matz. Stanton and Sanchez have both taken him deep. 

Belmont Stakes

To win: Justify - currently 5/9 odds to win. A lot of people are concerned about Justify drawing the rail position in this race but I’m not concerned. I think he will take the lead right out of the gate and never look back. The length of the track had other experts concerned but I’m confident that his trainer has him prepared to take down the Triple Crown.

I feel like if you’re betting Justify, you have to go all in on Justify today. I will post potential trifectas in a little bit. I’m headed over to the track now!
