    Won Seattle.

    Today:

    Boston (Paxton) vs Colorado (Seabold) - Under 9 -105


    You wanna see something weird? The line right now on BOL is under 9.5 -137. Now only is that a shitty line, it's bizarre they won't move it down to 9.

    Not only is that a crappy line, but it really seems they want to discourage under betting here.

    Managed to win the under on the Rockies despite 3 runs coming home in the 10th.

    Today I am fading Jameson Taillon, something I should've been doing for a long time, but haven't been.

    His ERA is over 7, through 10 (!!) starts. He just hasn't looked right, possibly due to after-effects from his injury earlier this year. Whatever it is, he's been a disaster for the Cubs. He has had just 2 good starts -- one back in April against the Dodgers, and one on June 2 against the Padres.

    Luis Ortiz hasn't been great for the Pirates, mostly struggling with walking a lot of people (15/16 K-BB ratio). However, he's been mostly good at stranding the many baserunners he's allowed.

    I am not making this a first-5 pick because the Pirates have a lockdown closer in David Bednar, and a pretty good setup guy in Colin Holderman. The Cubs bullpen situation is a mess. Aside from being on the road, the Pirates generally have the bullpen advantage here.

    Won this San Diego pick above.

    Today:

    I like the under on the Braves game today.

    Spencer Strider suddenly looks human, giving up 8 runs two outings ago, and 5 runs last outing. However, I don't think he's lost it -- at least not yet. He's still generating a lot of swings and misses (a big metric these days), and his velocity has not decreased.

    Ranger Suarez was awful after coming back from injury -- so bad that I released him from my fantasy team despite having him for $1. Of course, since I released him, that meant he was going to go on a run, and indeed he has. He's back to 2021 form, and has been excellent in his past 4 outings.

    Between what I believe will be a bounceback performance for Strider, and Suarez's unexpected return to effectiveness, I think this one goes under.

    Philadelphia (Suarez) vs Atlanta (Strider) - Under 8.5 +100

    Now all you got to do is add in the Giants and Indians.

    Freeland pitched well in last 3 starts in Denver.

    In general, dog bets on the Rockies at home aren't that bad.

    Won the Colorado pick with 4 runs in the 8th. Considered picking them the next day, passed on it, and they fell behind 23-0 in the 4th. Good thing I avoided that embarrassment I'd never live down.

    Today:

    The Padres have an ultra-fail reliever who couldn't even beat minor league hitters, and he's opening today's game. The Pirates have Rich Hill who, after defying the calendar for many years, seems to finally be done at age 43. He has coughed up 4-6 runs in 4 of his past 6 starts, including the last two.

    This is a first-5 over.

    San Diego (Knehr) vs Pirates (Hill) - Over 5.5 -115 - FIRST 5 INNINGS

    One more pick for a bit later.

    The Injuns and the Royals are two of the four worst offensive teams in baseball (the other being the Tigers and A's). They face each other tonight.

    Admittedly Brady Singer has bad numbers this year, but he's actually had some solid games in there. Gavin Williams was killing it in the minors, but had a not-so-good start against Oakland in his MLB debut. Now that he's past the opening jitters and facing another bad offense, I predict he will look a lot better.

    We don't need a 2-1 game to win this one. Just fewer than 9, in a game featuring two very weak offenses which are both averaging fewer than 4 runs per game.

    Cleveland (G. Williams) at Kansas City (Singer) - Under 9 -105

    Thanks Dan! I rarely see the posts before start time, but I caught this one and jumped all over it.

    Great picks Druff. The only one I'm going against is Cle vs KC. Over all the way, you're buddy SINGER can't pitch his way out of a wet paper bag. Plus he's old as hell(74) WAY OVER THE HILL !! Betting the farm on that one!!
