I guess we will call it 1 ½ and 2 on the night. Can’t really call the Hit Parlay a winner since Julio got scratched from the lineup but it still paid $35 profit on a $100 bet so it lessens the blow of the Dodgers blown lead and missing the 3 team parlay which I thought we were going to hit easily after the first 2 teams hit.
Player Prop Hit Parlay
***Be on the look out and check the lineup at like 1:30 est before locking in. If Julio is out of the lineup I will update the play.
Julio Rodriguez Hit / Ryan Mountcastle Hit (-106)
He’s been benched the last 2 night so this is more of a revenge play to finally cash in but I will admit I am sketched a bit about the 2 days off after being hot as the sun as we said yesterday
But it’s hard to ignore that he’s 18 for 27 in his last 5 games and he’s 3 for 5 lifetime vs White Sox starter Michael Kopech.
Ryan Mountcastle was our Dinger Failure play last night but the second leg of this parlay is another revenge against the books play
Mountcastle went hitless last night but he is still hitting .380 in August and he has hit safely in 17 of his last 19 games
The cherry on top of that heater for him is that he is facing Kevin Gausman tonight who he comes in hitting .455 (5 for 11) against him
Orioles (Flaherty) (+105)
I will GLADLY take the Orioles at home at +105
They lost to the Blue Jays last night but they are still ahead 8-3 on the season series
Most notably in this matchup, Kevin Gausman will start for the Blue Jays and the Orioles lineup comes in hitting .324 against him in a huge sample size of 142 at bats.
The O’s have gone 2-0 against Gausman this year and 3-1 over the last 2 seasons
Jack Flaherty will pitch for BAL & he tossed 6 innings while holding the Blue Jays to 1 run in his first start as an Oriole on 8/3 - yes, we bet on that and won at +142 odds - here's the LINK for those of you who weren't on board for that
Flaherty has also held the Blue Jays to a .121 avg in 69 at bats. Nice.
Dodgers ML / Braves ML (+123)
LA cost us last night but we have to run it back with them again tonight with Kershaw on the mound.
Kershaw is rocking a 1.80 ERA since returning from the injured list & he’s held this CLE lineup to a .205 avg in 40 at bats.
Xzavion Curry will pitch for CLE who has recently shifted from a reliever role to starter role and the Guardians have lost 2 of his last 3 starts - 9-8 and 5-3 losses.
The Braves will face Jose Quintana who they beat 6-0 a couple weeks ago despite only scoring 1 run off of him they got to the Mets bullpen
Charlie Morton is tossing for the Braves & he just threw 5 scoreless innings vs the Mets plus he has long term success against them holding them to a .231 avg in 186 at bats
