MLB June 7th

92-83 on MLB last season and went up 34.31 units

16-12 on MLB this season up 2.81 units

Cardinals at +112 for 2 units. Bet on the Cards the last time Miles Mikolas pitched. That game was against the Cubs. This game is against the Cubs. Mikolas allowed 1 earned run in that game. Mikolas has had a quality start in 6 of his last 7 starts. Cole Hamels gets the start opposite of Mikolas again. Hamels looked solid against St. Louis last time… This should be another close game.. +112 is decent value.

Tigers at +125 for 2 units. Hate betting against the Twins, but Matthew Boyd. Boyd is only 5-4, but he has 97 strikeouts in 77.2 innings pitched this season. The Twins have to come back to Earth sometime right?

The big news is that the Cubs signed Kimbrel to a 3-year deal. Chicago needed a strong closer if they wanted to make another World Series run. They couldn’t have signed him in the Winter without giving up draft picks, but now there is no “penalty” for signing Kimbrel. 54 Million doll hairs gets them one of the best closers in baseball. Kimbrel had more than a couple shaky innings in Boston’s World Series run.. but at the end of the day he got the job done. The Cubs make the first big move of the season.

Rays -1.5 at -123 for 2 units. Gonna keep riding the hot team. I was unable to write yesterday, but the Rays were my only bet and they won.

Red Sox at -141 for 2 units. Boston has scored 8 runs in each of their last 3 games. The Royals have lost 5 in a row.

Braves at -120 for 7 units. Atlanta hits right-handers better than Pittsburgh. Both starters today are righties. I have been fading Chris Archer all year. Mike Foltynewicz has not been the best pitcher for the Braves this season, but St. Louis did not earn a run off of him in his last road start. Mike has at least 7 strikeouts in his last two starts. Chris Archer has given up at least 3 earned runs in each of his last 6 starts. Braves will be able to get on base against Archer, here’s to hoping they get the timely hits when needed.

Rangers/Brewers Parlay risking 2 units to win 3.4 units. Marlins and Orioles suck. That is all.
