SF ML over CIN -108, HOU ML over DET -227 (+178)
We hit on our plus money bet (KC +116) yesterday but the Braves gave up FOURTEEN runs to the Marlins to spoil the parlay.
Today, we start with Johnny Cueto and the Giants against the Reds, both teams sitting at 7-4. Cueto has looked great so far this season, and I’ll take his track record over Reds starter Tyler Mahle who has been solid recently but boasts a career ERA of 4.61.
The Reds have gotten off to a hot start this season by leading the league in runs per game (6.82), but they’ve cooled off recently averaging only 3 runs a game over their past three.
The Giants on the other hand are 4th in the league in runs allowed per game (3.18), so with the Reds offense trending downwards I like San Francisco today.
Houston broke my heart a couple days ago and are riding 4 game losing streak as they faceoff against the Tigers, who have won two in a row.
Detroit is putting Michael Fulmer on the mound for his first start of the year after three solid bullpen appearances. He’s struggled his entire career as a starter and he faces one of the Astros other aces, Lance McCullers.
I’m praying it doesn’t blow up in my face again, but I’m betting on the Astros again to break this losing streak and finally generate some offense. McCullers has been outstanding as usual so I feel safe with the discrepancy in the pitching matchup and overall lineups that Houston will right the ship.
As a reminder, I always put 1 unit on the parlay and 2 units on each bet individually. Follow along here.
