WAS ML over ATL -121, HOU ML over LAA -104, LAD ML over OAK -166 (+474)
After cashing out on the Royals and Yankees yesterday, we’re rolling with the aces today, starting with Max Scherzer and the Nationals.
After a delay to the start of their season due to COVID, the Nats play their first game of the year against the winless Braves. They will put veteran but extremely average lefty Drew Smyly on the mound to face Scherzer.
With Atlanta only mustering 3 runs in their entire series against the Phillies, it’s unlikely today is the day they get right facing one of the best pitchers in the league. If the Nationals can get a few runs early, expect Scherzer to cruise and an easy win to start the season for Washington.
Our next cyborg in line is Zack Greinke, who will face off against Angels righty Dylan Bundy.
Bundy has been able to resurrect his career so far with the Angels after his struggles in Baltimore, but he’ll be dealing with baseball’s hottest offense out of the gate, as the Astros are averaging 8.2 runs per game so far.
After experiencing their first loss in heart breaking fashion last night, I expect Houston to bounce back big today with Greinke on the mound.
Last but not least, we have Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers. I certainly won’t call him a cyborg at the moment, but after a rough first start he has a great opportunity to get right tonight against the A’s pitiful lineup (averaging 2.4 runs per game).
Behind Kershaw and the Dodgers high powered lineup, the A’s won’t find their first victory here and the Dodgers will finish up leg 3 late tonight.
As a reminder, I always put 1 unit on the parlay and 2 units on each bet individually. Follow along here.
