VIP Picks 8/9

Solid 3-1 night but still more work to do this week! A Hump Day sweep would be nice, so let's go and get it!


3:37 EST


Rangers ML / Braves ML (-122)

  • Seems too easy right?

  • The Rangers have handled the A’s in the first 2 games of their series outsourcing them 11-4.

  • Jordan Montgomery will pitch for the Rangers & he was great in his Rangers debut last time out pitching 6 innings while only allowing 2 runs

  • The Rangers lineup will be up against 2-6 Austin Pruitt and whoever comes out of the A’s bullpen which I’m projecting could be Blackburn or Harris and they should hit either guy pretty hard

  • The Braves had a crazy comeback last night to win but have split the first 2 games of their series with the Pirates despite leaving 17 runners on base in those games.

  • They’ve had plenty of scoring opportunities and that should be the case again tonight when they face the 22 year old pitcher Quinn Priester who comes in with an 8.69 ERA

  • Max Fried is pitching for the Braves & he threw 6 scoreless innings in his last start plus he only allowed 2 runs in 14 innings against the Pirates last season

7:10 EST

Red Sox (Pivetta) (-1.5)

  • It’s Jordan Lyle Day at Fenway and I can’t help but jump on the Red Sox to cover the run line

  • Lyles is 3-12 with a 6.24 ERA on the season & the Sox come in hitting just under .300 against him

  • Nick Pivetta will start for the Red Sox & he’s silently been pitching pretty good and good enough for the Sox to cover the run line in 3 of his last 4 starts at home

  • I wouldn’t bet on the Sox if they were facing any other pitcher tonight but c’mon, it’s Jordan fucking Lyles guys!

9:40 EST

Dodgers (Miller) (-134)

  • The Dodgers will face Merrill Kelly and he’s a guy who they pretty much always beat. They are 11-1 in their last 12 games against him.

  • The LA lineup comes in hitting .303 against him in a huge sample size and 6 of the 9 guys in the lineup have hit atleast 1 career homerun against him.

  • 6-2 Bobby Miller will pitch for the Dodgers & this will be the first time he’s ever faced the DBacks

  • The DBacks continue to struggle and are 3-13 in their last 16 so let’s take the Dodgers at a pretty good price here
