VIP Picks 6/19/24

5-1 start to the week and feeling GOOOD going into Hump Day! Let’s get it started with some day action!


MLB:

1:05 EST

Phillies (-1.5) 🥉

  • The Phillies will face Padres starting pitcher Matt Waldron who they only have 19 at bats against but they have hammered him in that small sample size for a .368 avg and .789 slugging percentage. Waldron has been pitching well recently but I still like the Phillies lineup going against him.

  • Ranger Suarez will pitch for the Phillies and he’s back to his dominant form and still leading the league with 10 wins and a 1.77 ERA. He’s even better at home with a 1.58 ERA. Suarez has held this Padres lineup to a .213 avg in 76 at bats in the past so look for him to shut them down today.

  • Phillies should cover the -1.5 for us. 


4:05 EST

Diamondbacks (Pfaadt) (-165) 🥈

  • It’s a bigger moneyline so you can bet it stronger if you want.

  • The Diamondbacks get to face 1-7 Patrick Corbin and I’m always willing to bet against Corbin with a moneyline that’s better than -199. Corbin sucks. I’ve been preaching this for years at this point.

  • The DBacks lineup comes in hitting .281 against him in over 100 at bats so they’ve been good against him (just like every other team).

  • Brandon Pfaadt will pitch for the DBacks who has had bright spots but is still trying to prove his consistency as a qualify starting pitcher  but he’s only 25 years old. He’s pitched 6+ innings in 8 of his last 9 starts so that’s a pretty solid stat and he’s allowed 3 or less runs in 5 of those starts. I like him to outduel Corbin today.


4:05 EST

Hit Parlay

Ketel Marte Hit / Jarren Duran Hit (-141) 🥇

  • Ketel Marte will be facing our buddy Patrick Corbin who he comes in hitting .556 against (5 for 9 with 2 HR)

  • Marte has also hit safely in 8 of his last 10 games.

  • Jarren Duran will face Kevin Gausman who he comes in hitting .500 against (5 for 10 with 4 doubles)

  • Duran also comes into tonight riding a 9 game hitting streak.
