New week, let’s do this thing.
Kansas City Royals @ Baltimore Orioles
Starting Pitching: Jorge Lopez vs John Means
I have the Orioles taking this game tonight. When you look at the numbers for both teams, they are both neck and neck for being just terrible. But I have to roll with the Orioles tonight because they have John Means on the mound. Means may not be the best pitcher this side of the Mississippi, but he is a better option than Lopez. Means has an ERA just above 3.50, while Lopez is far above 6.00. I can't put my faith or money in anyone I don't trust on the mound, and this year I just trust Means more. Gimme the birds.
O/U: Under 10.5
Winners: Orioles -140
Washington Nationals @ Pittsburgh Pirates
Starting Pitching: Joe Ross vs Trevor Williams
Washington has been very impressive the past week. In 3 out of their last 4 games, they scored 14 runs or more, and I think they will continue this run tonight. Trevor Williams has a 5.25 ERA, and I think the Nats will have a field day. I even think they cover the over by themselves tonight and score over 10 runs yet again. The Pirates don't have the bats to keep up with what's going on right now in D.C., so I can't pick them tonight. I'm taking the Nats and that's the bottom line.
O/U: Over 10.0
Winners: Nationals -120
Detroit Tigers @ Houston Astros
Starting Pitching: Edwin Jackson vs Wade Miley
Do you ever have every being in your body tell you not to do something stupid, but you know you’re just going to go ahead and do it anyways. That's right, tonight I am taking the Detroit Tigers to beat the Astros in Houston, as a -430 underdog. Just last week the Astros were the biggest favorite in MLB history at -500, and they lost to the awful Orioles. Plus, being 4-6 in their last 10 games isn't a good look, especially when the Tigers have had the exact same run. The value is just too good to let go, and baseball is a crazy sport. It's the only sport where I really believe anyone can win on any given night. Sometimes you gotta just say FUCK IT, GIMME THE TIGERS BABY.
O/U: Over 10.0
Winners: Tigers +305
Betting mastermind. Didn't have the height or talent for sports but I can talk and pick them like a champ.
