MLB April 16th

8-5 on MLB in 2018 up 4.70 units

Pirates ML at -129 for 2 units. Pirates have scored an impressive 87 runs on the season. I have been riding them lately. The Rockies are only batting .217 on the season. Nolan Arenado will not be playing this series due to his mound rushing suspension. The Rockies may have the better starter in this matchup, but I think the Pirates bats can do enough.

Blue Jays ML at -165 for 3 units. Kansas City has only 5 home runs in 13 games. The Blue Jays have scored 33 more runs than the Royals at this point in the season. The Blue Jays just came back from a 4-0 deficit and beat the Indians. Skoglund gave up 5 runs in 4 and 2/3rds his last time out. I think the Blue Jays will hit Skoglund well.

Phillies ML at -130 for 3 units. This is simple, fade Julio Teheran and ride the red hot Phillies.

Rangers ML at +155 for 2 units. I would bet any team +150 or higher against the Rays. Just too much value to pass up. The Rangers just beat the Astros in extra innings twice. The Rangers won’t lose without a fight. Martin Perez has a terrible ERA for the Rangers, but he did face the Angels his last time out, so I will give him a second chance here.
