Yankees ML (-129)

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I usually don’t like to bet the Yankees. They are generally over priced in the betting market as they are a very public team and usually pretty tough to find value. What I hate to do even more is bet the Yankees against the Rays. These two teams hate each other and Cash always seems to be a step ahead of Boone. But this series just feels like the Yankees series to sweep and they have their ace going today with Cole. I know Cole has seemed a bit shaky since the substance ban but if you look at the numbers he’s actually pitched very well. I know the Rays have generally done well against Cole in years past but he’s gotten the better of them in two out of three games this year and trust he will pitch well today. On the flip side the Rays counter with Patino who has been shelled all year. First 5 was my initial thought here (especially with the Yankees having to use a lot of the pen in this series) but it was just too juiced so didn’t see the value. I do think there is enough value on the full game money line to pull the trigger with Cole against Pitino. Give me the Yankees to get the sweep.

White Sox/Padres ML parlay +111 

I try to stay away from parlays as much as possible as they just aren’t smart long term, but there are times when it makes sense (IMO) to do a two teamer. If I really like two teams but the money lines are too juiced and don’t fully trust the run lines, I will parlay both teams together. That’s what played out today with the White Sox and Padres. Let’s start with the White Sox. They have been an extremely frustrating team for me to bet on this year as that lineup just hasn’t been producing like last year. They did just get Eloy back so that should definitely help. The Royals have taken 2 out of the 3 games in this series but I don’t think they make it 3 of 4. I think Rondon will quiet the Royals bats and get the W in this spot. Next is the Padres. I took them yesterday and Snell got blown the fuck up. But even when the score was 10-0 it just feels like the Padres aren’t out of it. Their lineup is so filthy, especially with the Frazier addition. The money line was outrageous due to Musgrove going and how bad the Rockies are on the road but I do see value in parlaying it with Rondon and the White Sox for some plus money.

Whatever you play I hope we all cash today!
