MLB June 29th

Twins +103: There is just no reason for James Shields to be favored in a big league baseball game right now. I don’t care where the game is playing being played, or who the opponent is, he shouldn’t be favored. For about a month now Shields has been throwing slow,...

1st 5 Mets/Nationals Un 4.5 (-120): Tonight we finally get the MLB debut of Nats stud Lucas Giolito. Depending on who you ask Giolito is either the best or 2nd best pitching prospect in all of baseball. He throws in the high 90’s with an excellent curveball and a pretty...

1st 5 Innings Mets/Nats Un 4 (-110): Will roll with the first 5 under here and take my chances with Joe Ross and Thor doing battle. We all know Clayton Kershaw has been the best pitcher in baseball so far this year. When you dig into the numbers you could make the argument that...

MLB June 23rd

Padres -106 & Padres/Reds Ov 9.5 (-105): I’m sure most people wouldn’t realize this, but the Padres are the third best offense in baseball against left handed pitching. As a team they have a 117 wRC+ against lefties, and I think they should really bang around John...

MLB June 22nd

Giants -108: Francisco Liriano has just been flat out awful this year, and the simple reason is that he can’t throw strikes. Liriano has a BB/9 rate of 5.65 and not surprisingly an ERA of over 5 to go with it. Yes he has seen some crazy bad luck with a 21.9% HR/FB rate, but...

Cardinals/Cubs Ov 8.5 (-110): Two of the best lineups in baseball against righties do battle here, against two pitchers I’m just not all that impressed with. We’ll start with Adam Wainwright, who although has been better late is still nowhere near what he once was....
