9/13 VIP Picks



4-2 last two days after Sox left bases loaded last and and the DBacks blew a lead that they held all game in the bottom of the 9th inning. Fuckers! NFL is back tonight and we have some good MLB action. Let’s get to the picks!

MLB:

Dodgers (Kershaw) (-185)- JACKHAMMER - Pretty expensive moneyline here but I’m paying the price on this one and not risking getting burnt by a moneyline. Kershaw gets the start for the Dodgers who are working to close in on the NL West crown. Kershaw has held this Cardinals lineup to a .212 avg in 80 career at bats. He has also struck them out 24 times in those 80 at bats. The Dodgers lineup will face Austin Gomber who beat them earlier this year but they had good success against him and had a .316 avg but they left 14 guys on base in that game on August 20th. I don’t see this Dodgers team leaving 14 guys on base again and that should lead to an easy win for them tonight.



A’s (Anderson) (-185) - Same deal here, expensive moneyline but I’m paying the price because we absolutely need a huge day to go into the weekend. The A’s are playing the miserable Orioles and they are up against starting pitcher Dylan Bundy who has lost 10 of his last 11 starts. He’s allowed 6 or more earned runs in 7 of those games against worse lineups than the A’s. Brett Anderson gets the start for the A’s and he has held this lineup to a .176 avg in 34 at bats. One team has won 6 in a row and the other has lost 6 in a row, let’s go with the team that has won 6 in a row. Let’s go A’s!

Dodgers ML/ A’s ML (+133) - Kershaw gets the start for the Dodgers who are working to close in on the NL West crown. Kershaw has held this Cardinals lineup to a .212 avg in 80 career at bats. He has also struck them out 24 times in those 80 at bats. The Dodgers lineup will face Austin Gomber who beat them earlier this year but they had good success against him and had a .316 avg but they left 14 guys on base in that game on August 20th. I don’t see this Dodgers team leaving 14 guys on base again and that should lead to an easy win for them tonight. The A’s are playing the miserable Orioles and they are up against starting pitcher Dylan Bundy who has lost 10 of his last 11 starts. He’s allowed 6 or more earned runs in 7 of those games against worse lineups than the A’s. Brett Anderson gets the start for the A’s and he has held this lineup to a .176 avg in 34 at bats. One team has won 6 in a row and the other has lost 6 in a row, let’s go with the team that has won 6 in a row. Let’s go A’s!

NFL:

The Bengals have won 7 of the last 10 meetings between these two teams and 2 of the 3 games the Bengals lost were by 5 points or less. Another thing to point out is that 8 of the last 10 games between these two have gone under or pushed at 51 (keep that in mind). I know that Ravens are coming off of one of the biggest blowouts in NFL history but look who they played. A Buffalo Bills team who had a QB that actually had his QB rating go up after throwing an incomplete pass. That’s pathetic. The game was over by halftime and it’s tough to get a true read of how this Ravens team will be this season. The Bengals entered the 4th quarter trailing Andrew Luck and the Colts 23-17 before the Bengals ran off 17 straight points for an 11 point victory. This Ravens defense will be a tougher test than the Colts were for them and the same for the Bengals defense for the Ravens. I think this will be a defensive battle with this being a short week after the season openers for both of these teams. 66% of the public money is on the Ravens and I’m going the other way in this one. I like the Bengals teased up to +7 at home and under 51 expecting both defenses who allowed less than 22 points per game last season to play well tonight.

Pick

JACKHAMMER!
