77-75 on MLB up 11.37 units
Called both games last time out on Saturday. Verlander is just too good. Yuli Gurriel and the Astros took advantage of some wild pitches from Chris Sale. Justin Turner came in clutch for me in Game 2 of the NLCS. Wade Miley has been pitching great recently. He was one of my favorite pitchers to bet against for a couple regular seasons in a row there, and betting against him worked again last time out, but not as easily as I would have liked. Miley did everything he could for his team though giving up no runs in 5 and two thirds.
Brewers at +162 for 2 units. Christian Yelich and Josh Hader.
Brewers/Dodgers under 7.5 at -119 for 2 units. I like Chacin and and Buehler both a lot. They have been consistent and composed in every start they have had since September. Buehler did look a little vulnerable against the Braves when he walked the pitcher on 4 pitches and then gave up a grand slam to Acuna Jr. Milwaukee’s bullpen was tired for Game 2, but they will be at full strength tonight. There is too much value in the Brewers money line for me to pass it up. Chacin has not given up more than 3 earned runs since August 2nd against the Dodgers, but Buehler gave up more than 3 earned runs in his last start. Josh Hader should pitch in this one if the Brewers have a lead. If the Brewers lose this one, it will be because Chacin gets lit up by lefty batters like Bellinger and Muncy.. Two solid starting pitchers in a must win game makes me lean towards the under.
