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.


MLB:

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. 


8:10 

Parlay

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.


NHL:

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!!
