Like after having a couple of drinks, let’s recover from last night.
Kansas City Royals @ Texas Rangers
Starting Pitching: Jakob Junis vs Mike Minor
Mike Minor has been very impressive so far this season and he is not showing any signs of slowing down. Through 70.2 innings pitched, Minor is posting a 2.55 ERA and has struck out 72 batters. Add that to the fact the Rangers average the second most runs per game with 5.7, whenever Mike is on the mound, it’s no easy task for the opposing team to win. I think the Rangers behind Minor on the mound and the big bat of Joey Gallo are going to steam roll the Royals tonight at home.
O/U: Over 10.0
Winners: Rangers -170
Los Angeles Angels @ Seattle Mariners
Starting Pitching: Felix Pena vs Yusei Kikuchi
After a scorching hot start to the season, the Seattle Mariners are looking like the team everyone thought they would be prior to Opening Day. Seattle has lost 11 of its last 13 games and lost 5 of their first 6 to the Angels. Although the Angels haven’t been playing particularly well themselves, they are always a threat with Mike Trout and my guy Shohei Otani in the heart of their lineup. LA has a team batting average of .256 (11th) and OBP of .335 (6th). I say the Halos have enough magic in them tonight to take this game in Seattle.
O/U: Over 9.0
Winners: Angels -115
New York Mets @ Los Angeles Dodgers
Starting Pitching: Jason Vargas vs Hyun-Jin Ryu
Last night’s game in Los Angeles was one of the most embarrassing performances I have ever seen from the Mets. Blowing a 8-3 lead and a 8-5 lead in the 9th. I am sorry to say, this game will have the same outcome as the last. The Dodgers behind the arm of Ryu have been spectacular this season. Ryu has a 7-1 record, 1.65 ERA, and an amazing 15.5:9 K:BB. This Mets offense, which is nothing special this season, is going have a very long night. Then add Jason Vargas is on the mound, I am saying their is a 0.1% win possibility for the Metropolitans tonight. Take the Dodgers all the way to the bank.
O/U: Under 8.5
Winners: Dodgers -260
Betting mastermind. Didn't have the height or talent for sports but I can talk and pick them like a champ.
