In what world does this make sense? Jake Arrietta facing off against Wheeler who is complete trash is only-120. For those of you who don’t know the Mets played the Phillies last night and didn’t record an out while the Phillies had 8 runs.
I feel like people also forget that the Mets are complete trash and the Phillies have a stacked lineup. I was all set on taking the Phillies this morning but I didn’t think anything of it. An experienced gambler Dave Portnoy came up to me and said this line makes absolutely no sense. We have gambled so much that when we see a line like this there is some fishy shit going on. The line seems to be going down for the Phillies as we speak and I can’t figure it out for the life of me. Maybe because the Mets were blown out last night and it will light a fire under their ass. Having to think about a day game this much this early was brutal but need to keep the Hot streak alive. In my head the only pick here is the Phillies and I locked it in so early that it is just too much trouble to tell the bookie to cancel the bet. I have re-convinced myself to not be dumb and take the better team here and die with the right decision.
