Happy April Fools Day, none of us are fools after going 4-1 yesterday with Michigan State as an underdog over Duke! What a day and what a finish to the week. The only game that kept us from a 5-0 sweep was the Yankees, apparently they can’t beat the Orioles who lost 115 games last year. Great day and what a win for Michigan State, what a win for us! I’ll warn you guys to be careful with NHL/NBA betting as we are in the danger zone which is the last week or so of the regular season. Let’s see what we have for tonight.
Indians (Clevinger) (-150) - Two 1-2 AL Central teams will battle at 4 est on ESPN. The Indians will take on Ivan Nova who they have a .400 avg against in 35 at bats. Mike Clevinger will get the start for the Indians and he has held this White Sox lineup to a .231 avg in 52 at bats. Clevinger went 3-0 against the White Sox last year allowing just 3 runs in 21 innings pitched. We should get a good start from him today and this Tribe lineup should score some runs against Nova.
Cubs (Hendricks) (-108) - Great value here for the Cubs who come in with a .390 avg & .659 slg% in 41 at bats against Braves starter Sean Newcomb. Baez, Contreras, & Almora have all taken Newcomb deep before. Kyle Hendricks will start for the Cubs and he has held this Braves lineup in check holding them to a .265 avg in 34 at bats. Cubbies should give Hendricks some run support tonight against Newcomb who they have had great success in the past.
Astros (Peacock) (-168) - The Astros will take on the Rangers and Drew Smyly tonight and they will be smiling to face him after the tough Opening Weekend they had. They come in hitting .311 with a .578 slg% in 45 at bats against Smyly. The Rangers have had some success against Brad Peacock but not on the same level as the Astros against Smyly. Astros get on track tonight against the Rangers.
