VIP Picks 5/17/24

We will take a winning 2-1 day anyday but that 1 loss definitely stings a bit with the Nuggets not even covering ¾ of their team total last night. We are still up 3.18 units going into Friday so we are feeling good! Let’s keep building on the winning week!


MLB:

Parlay

Phillies ML / Yankees ML (-108) 🥈

  • We’ve got the 2 biggest favorites on the MLB slate for the day but slap them in a moneyline parlay and it’s great value at -108!

  • Zack Wheeler will pitch for the Phillies and he’s dominated this Nats lineup in the past holding them to a .202 avg in 129 at bats. 

  • Jake Irvin will pitch for the Nats and he hasn’t been terrible but WAS has lost 6 of his 8 starts this season so there’s that.

  • The Yankees are hosting the 14-30 White Sox and Mike Clevinger who once wore pigtails in multiple games so he’s forever on my “bet against” list when the opportunity is there. This Yankes lineup also comes in with good numbers against him especially Judge and Soto so it lines up nicely for the Yanks tonight.

  • Nestor Cortes will pitch for the Yanks and he’s posted a 1.59 ERA at home this season so I’ll ride him at home all day.

  • -108 is great value for these two matchups in a parlay tonight. 


NHL:

7:00 EST

Bruins (+124) 🥉

  • Home dogs in a Game 6 at The Garden on a Friday Night has tons of value at +124 for the Bruins.

  • They are down 3-2 in this series but they would be up 3-2 if it wasn’t for the blown lead in the 3rd period in Game 4. 

  • Sure those big losses in Games 2 and 3 were ugly for Boston but a win tonight in front of the home crowd that will be rowdy sets up a winner take all Game 7 and they’ve already shown they can go into Florida and get the win like they did in their 5-1 win in Game 1 of this series as well as the regular season.

  • Swayman has been great in the competitive games in this series, I expect tonight to be competitive, and I expect the Bruins to come out with some urgency at home which was lacking in Games 2 and 3. 


10:10 EST

Same Game Parlay

Dodgers ML / Shohei Ohtani Hit (-118) 🥇

  • The Dodgers will host the Reds tonight and they will face Frankie Montas who they have absolutely crushed in the past coming in hitting .418 against him in over 50 at bats collectively.

  • Montas has been getting lit up in recent starts allowing 5 runs in less than 5 innings pitched in 3 of his last 5 starts.

  • We are adding in the Shohei Ohtani hit to get better odds and he’s raked against Montas in the past hitting over .400 against him and he also has 4 career homeruns against him.

  • 5-0 James Paxton will pitch for the Dodgers and he’s been dealing this season with a 2.58 ERA.
