Straight picks go 4-1 yesterday with another JACKHAMMER win and the only loss was thanks to the Twins blowing their two run lead in the 8th and the Twins only scored 6 runs in game one of the double header but they scored 16 in game two. The parlay was a long shot in the first place but I was feeling like taking a chance on a Saturday. Let’s see what we have for today to close out a HUGE weekend. Happy Easter to all of you!
Nationals (Strasburg) (-170) - Big moneyline here but totally worth it with this matchup and I’d rather take the moneyline than the run line in this one. Strasburg will pitch for the Nats and he has held this Marlins lineup to a .202 avg in 129 at bats. The Nats bats will face Trevor Richards and they are hitting just under .300 in a small sample size against him. The Marlins have won the first two games of this series so the Nats are due for a win and they have a favorable matchup today. Book it.
Astros (McHugh) (-1.5) - The Astros will take on Shelby Miller who comes in with a 9.00 earned run average and a chick with big tits name. The Astros have pounded this guy in the past and come in with a .414 avg in 29 at bats. Collin McHugh will start on the mound for the Astros and he has been great this season pitching at least 5 innings in each of his four starts and allowing 2 or less earned runs. I think the Astros will hit Shelby Miller hard today and cover the run line for us.
Sharks / Golden Knights Over (6) - JACKHAMMER - Same bet that we played on Thursday night except this game is in Vegas. 4 of the 5 games in this series have now gone over 6 and 7 of the 9 head to head matchups between these two teams this season have gone over 6. The Golden Knights have the 3-2 series lead and they will look to close it out tonight at home. I think both teams will continue to play at a fast pace and that will lead to another game between these two teams going OVER.
Cross Sport Parlay:
Astros ML / Raptors ML (+116) - We continue to have success with our cross sport parlays so let’s keep taking advantage. Two big favorites with good matchups at plus money is value! The Astros will be up against Shelby Miller who comes in with a 9.00 earned run average and they have a .414 avg in 29 at bats against him. Collin McHugh will pitch for the Astros and he has pitched 5+ innings in each of his four starts this season and has allowed 2 or less earned runs in each of those starts. The Raptors lost Game 1 of this series to the Magic but that seemed to be a wake up call for them because they have responded with two straight wins. The Raptors are 2-0 against the spread in those games but taking them in a moneyline parlay is a safer bet and increases our chances of winning. I like the Raptors to win this game straight up because they are a much better team and they will take a 3-1 series lead back to Toronto with a chance to close it out on Tuesday.
