MLB May 1st

32-24 on MLB in 2018 up 18.88 units

11-4 over past 4 days. Went 1-3 yesterday, but won the big unit play thanks to the 3 run 9th by the Giants. Longoria and Hundley were the heroes for the Giants with a pair of singles in the 9th. Pirates and Yankees both lost by a run, but they were plus money plays I would make again. The Astros seem to be getting hot even though they are already 20-10. Scary for the rest of the MLB.

Tigers ML at +132 for 1 unit. Chris Archer has not impressed me this season. He has left his slider up and just seems to lose focus in the middle of an at-bat at times. I love his talent and hope he can put it all together, but I just haven’t seen it yet this season. Matthew Boyd is better than his record shows for the Tigers. Detroit has a better team ERA (team ERA gets a lot better for the Tigers if you take out Blake Snell of the Rays).

Brewers ML at -121 for 1 unit. Anderson has been the Brewers best pitcher this season. The Reds have been bad and have a team ERA over 2 points higher then the Brewers. I like the Brewers bullpen a lot more and their bats seem to have woken up a little lately.

Angels ML at -173 for 4 units. Alex Cobb fade. Haven’t lost betting against him all year, not going to stop now.

 

 

NHL Playoffs May 1st

36-34-4 in Hockey up 10.57 units

Up 4.80 units on NHL Playoffs

The Lightning were the more physical team as they went on to beat the Bruins. Yanni Gourdi had a nice goal at the end of some sweet passing for Tampa to start the game. The Bruins let the game slip away in the 2nd period. Vegas almost gave up a 3-1 lead, but they won in overtime. Stanley Cup games in Vegas would be pretty electric. Fleury had a few amazing saves and the Knights showed some fortitude in their overtime win.

Once again, I would recommend playing these together.

Predators ML +120 for 2 units. Preds won one game in Winnipeg this season and almost won two. Nashville needs to be a little better on defense, but they have done well at throwing men forward. Jets fans saying they won’t lose at home, yet the line is almost even. I expect another close game after their double overtime game last time out.

Capitals ML +120 for 2 units. Caps have looked better over the past two games. Malkin isn’t 100% still. The Capitals rebounding in the last game was good for them mentally. I just like what I have seen and heard from the Capitals players.
