VIP Picks 5/31/24

0-2……but still up on the week going into Friday so we will take it. I really thought we would atleast go 1-1 but damn them TWolves did NOT show up. Michael Jordan never lost an elimination game by 20+ just sayin. On to Friday and back to winning!


6:40 EST

Phillies ML / Dodgers (-109) - JACKHAMMER 3 UNIT 🥇

  • The Phillies are going up against Miles Mikolas who has a 5.51 ERA on the road this season and 4 guys in the Phillies lineup have taken him deep before.

  • The Phillies will be returning home from their road trip and they are a whopping 22-8 at home this season.

  • 6-2 Aaron Nola will pitch for Philly and he’s held the Cardinals lineup to a .177 avg in a huge sample size of 130 at bats.

  • The Dodgers are facing Dakota Hudson who is just 1-7 on the season so I’d expect them to rake against him.

  • Walker Buehler will pitch for LA and he’s still getting into form but this will be his 5th start and he threw 6 scoreless innings in his last home start so look for him to be good tonight. 

7:05 EST

Hit Parlay

Ryan Mountcastle Hit / Freddie Freeman Hit (-134) 🥈

  • Ryan Mountcastle will face Aaron Civale who he comes in 5 for 6 against with 2 career homeruns so the baseball looks like a beach ball to him when he’s facing this guy.

  • Mountcastle has also been hot in recent games hitting safely in 7 straight full games.

  • Freddie Freeman is always a steady bet for a hit parlay and he’s got a good matchup against Dakota Hudson who he comes in hitting .375 against.

  • Freeman went 0 for 4 on Wednesday but he has hit safely in 9 of 10 games before that.


8:30 EST

Stars (-130) 🥉

  • We’ve got ourselves a series here tied up at 2-2 but it still feels like the Stars have the advantage going into Game 5 at home tonight.

  • It starts in net with Jake Oettinger who carries a .919 save percentage in the playoffs into tonight’s game. He gave up 4 last game but last time he got smacked by the Avs he bounced back only allowing 1 goal the next game so I look for him to bounce back.

  • Stuart Skinner hassn’t been as good as Oettinger this postseason with an .887 save percentage. 

  • The Stars are the deeper team in this series and that as well as the advantage between the pipes is what I expect to make the ultimate difference in this series. Game 5 isn’t the end of the series but a win tonight sets them up nicely.
