4/7 VIP Picks

Well 2-3 last night but I got absolutely crushed. Literally 3 points away and Auburn missed 22 3 pointers when they shot 38% from 3 all season. Texas Tech seems like a team of destiny right now. Good to see baseball went 2-1 but still a losing day overall. A big day is mandatory today to close the week out and there are some good matchups for us today.


1:10 EST

Nationals (Scherzer) - Scherzer is 0-2 on the season but he only allowed 2 runs against this Mets offense over 7.2 innings on Opening Day. The Nats lineup will take on Zach Wheeler who they have a .321 avg in 106 at bats and they scored 4 runs in 5 innings against him on Mar 31. I like Scherzer to dominate today and this Nats offense to get to Wheeler early.

1:10 EST

Blue Jays / Indians Under (7.5) - Stroman and Clevinger must start for action in this one. Clevinger was dominant in his first start of the year allowing 1 single hit over 7 innings and had 12 strikeouts against the White Sox. Clevinger has held this Jays lineup to a .158 avg in a small sample size. Stroman has allowed 2 runs or less in both of his starts this season and has held this Indians lineup to a .223 avg in 94 at bats.

1:20 EST

Braves (Newcomb) (-152) - Newcomb has held this Marlins lineup to a .170 avg in 47 career at bats and the Marlins have lost 4 of their last 5 while the Braves have won 4 of their last 5. The Braves lineup only has 15 career at bats against Caleb Smith but they have owned them in that small sample size and have a .467 avg, that’s seeing the ball well. I like the Braves to Chop On today.

Added 6:20 EST

8:30 EST

Dodgers (Urias) (-159) - The Dodgers continue to swing the stick and have won 4 of the last 5 games while scoring 5 or more runs in each of those wins. The Rockies have lost 4 of their last 5 games while scoring 2 or less runs in 4 of those games. The Dodgers lineup comes in with a .286 avg in 84 at bats against Chad Bettis who comes in with a 9.53 earned run average after his first start. Julio Urias will pitch for the Dodgers and he threw 5 scoreless innings in his first start. Dodgers should win again tonight on Sunday Night Baseball.
