VIP Picks 5/20/24

It was a bloody Sunday going 0-3 but it was still a winning week for us finishing up 2.82 units if you played every play. We took a lower amount of plays than normal but we can’t argue with the end result ;) Let’s kick off a new week and put together more winning this week.


6:50 EST

Red Sox / Rays NO Runs In the 1st 🥉

  • Tanner Houck will start for the Red Sox and he has gone 8-1 NO runs in the 1st this season including NO runs in the 1st against this same Rays lineup his last time out. 

  • Houck has good numbers against the guys in this Rays lineup and he hasn’t allowed a homerun to any of them in 57 career at bats. 

  • Taj Bradley will pitch for the Rays and he is 1-1 NO runs in the 1st this season. He did allow a run to the Sox in the 1st in his last start but it was on a Sac Fly and he was pretty good over his 5 innings of work against them.

  • Let’s get a quick one to start the week. 



Astros ML / Dodgers ML (+113) 🥈

  • The Astros will kick this one off for us with Framber Valdez on the mound who has pitched back to back games with 7 innings pitched and he’s only allowed 2 runs during that stretch so he’s feeling pretty good right now. 

  • The Astros lineup will face Reid Detmers who has been getting rocked lately - 5 runs in 5 innings, 6 runs in 5 innings, and 7 runs in 5.2 innings in his last 3 starts. The Astros lineup comes in hitting just under .300 against him and scored 7 runs in 2.1 innings the last time they faced him.

  • The Dodgers will have Yamamoto on the mound vs the DBacks and he threw 6 scoreless innings against them on 5/1.

  • The Dodgers will face DBacks opener Joe Mantiply so he will likely only pitch the first inning then it will be bullpen action which ranks 23rd in ERA this season.


9:00 EST

1st Period

Oilers / Canucks Over (1.5) 🥇

  • Game 1, Game 5, Game 7, I don’t give a fuck what game it is! These two teams have gone over 1.5 goals in the 1st in 9 out of their 10 head to head matchups this season so we are jumping on the 1st period over again tonight. 

  • It’s gotten to the point where the write ups have been brief because 9 out of 10 is 9 out of 10 and tonight it will become 10 out of 11! 

  • Last chance to bet this one this season!!
