VIP Picks 4/16/24

What’s cooler than being cool? Ice motherfucking cold. I will try to nit pick things that go wrong for us to get out of this cold streak. Dodgers lost to the Nationals and a guy making his MLB debut, maybe we should have stayed away because there was no head to head history there but my mindset was the powerful Dodgers lineup against a young guy with nerves was a solid play. Yankees couldn’t score more than 1 run and Stanton was out of the lineup so that didn’t end well. I do appreciate those of you who are ride or die and I want you all to know that I don’t take this shit lightly when we have these kind of cold streaks. I will continue to do my best to turn it around. If I ever get to the point where I feel like I’m not offering any value then I will stop doing what I do but I don’t feel like I’ve got to that point yet. We just need to snap the fuck out.


MLB:

6:40 EST

Giants (Hicks) (-130) 🥉

  • Jordan Hicks will pitch for the Giants and he has nasty stuff. He’s been in the bigs here and there since 2018 but doesn’t have a full season as a regular starter under his belt. He has been shut down through his first 3 starts and comes in ranked 5th in ERA at 1.00. He’s faced the Marlins before in limited work and they are 3 for 14 against him.

  • Ryan Weathers will pitch for the Marlins and despite a good start against the Yankees his last time out, he’s not that fucking good. He has a career 5.61 ERA.

  • The Giants took Game 1 of this series and the Marlins are 3-14.


6:40 EST

Parlay

Phillies ML / Dodgers ML (-112) 🥇

  • The Phillies will face the Rockies and Austin Gomber who they don’t have a good track record against but Gomber comes in with a 7+ ERA on the road in the young season. The Rockies have won 2 of his 3 starts but they’ve scored 19 runs in those games. They aren’t going to score 9 or 10 runs tonight because…

  • Ranger Suarez is pitching for the Phillies and he’s held this Rockies lineup to a .189 avg in 37 career at bats. The Phillies have won all 3 of his starts this season and he’s only allowed 2 earned runs in his last 12 innings pitched.

  • The Dodgers are facing Patrick Corbin. Patrick Corbin ranks dead last in walks/hits per innings pitched. He has an 8.44 ERA. 

  • I literally do not care who pitches for the Dodgers. They should clobber Patrick Corbin.


NBA:

10:00 EST

Warriors (-138) 🥈

  • So take away 2019 and 2020 and Curry has made the playoffs in 9 straight seasons. Take away those 2 years because he was hurt in one of them when he only played 5 games and take away the other because Klay was hurt.

  • The loser of this game goes home and Curry ain’t going home tonight.

  • The Warriors and Kings split the season series 2-2 but the 2 losses to the Kings came by 1 point.

  • The Kings are also without Malik Monk due to injury who averaged 15.4 ppg this season.

  • The Warriors come in playing better ball going 8-2 over their last 10 while the Kings with 4-6. 

  • The Warriors beat the Kings in a 7 game series in the playoffs last year and Curry had big games throughout with 30, 29, 36, 32, 31, 29, & FITTY! CURRY!!
