VIP Picks 8/23

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.

2:10 EST

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

7:05 EST

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.

7:10 EST


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
