    20-20-2 +46.80 No homer for hosmer and no win for KC, max bet today 10 pts Pittsburgh (-1.5) to bt LA Angels 2.30 Gerritt Cole is the best pitcher the Pirates have and has been doing an excellent job on the hill in recent starts, the Angels are not exactly a powerhouse of an offensive unit despite plating some runs in recent days. Hector Santiago will pitch for the Angels and the lefty has been disgustingly bad allowing 15 earned runs over his last three short starts, Pittsburgh have plenty of hitters who can do damage and hit lefties fairly well so I would expect Cole to keep it solid and Pittsburgh to have their way with Santiago in a blowout today   Good luck if you are playing today

    20-19-2 +48.80 Todays main play 2 pts Eric Hosmer to hit a home run and Kansas to beat Cleveland 10.00 Paddy Power Eric Hosmer has 11 long balls this season and has taken Josh Tomlin out the park twice in his career already. The record of Tomlin at 7-1 is something of a mirage as his ERA is higher tham todays starter for Kansas Ian Kennedy who has a losing record!!!. Tomlin has had some bad starts this year and none more so than lasttime out allowing 8 runs to Texas earlier this week, he is capable of having a shocker and Hosmer is definitely capable of hitting him in the seats. I expect Kansas to win the game which is available at odds against but I fancy boosting the odds with a Hosmer homer on top   best of luck if you are playing today

    19-19-2 +38.30 hideous day yesterday todays main play is a max bet 10 pts San Francisco (-1.5) to bt Colorado 2.05 Bet365 Johnny Cueto has excelled recently, he has also excelled against Colorado with a 1.11 ERA across his last four against them, this includes 2 starts at the hitter friendly Coors Field where todays game will take place. Cueto will be opposed by Chris Rusin who joined the starting rotation in late April for the ineffective Jordan Lyles, Rusin allowed 7 runs in San Francisco the only start he made against the Giants so far this year, with excellent forecast conditions for the hitters and a Giants lineup that plated stacks of runs yesterday I will look for Cueto to continue his dominance of the Rox and an easy Giants victory   Good luck if you play today

    19-18-2 +45.30 todays play 7 pts NY Mets (-1.5) to bt LA Dodgers 2.30 Bet365 Noah Syndegaard is outstanding, he has won his last three starts, twice shutting out the opposition with an ERA of 0.86 including a victory against todays opponent Kenta Maeda and the Dodgers. Thor helped himself to two home runs against his opposite number that day but the Mets do hit right hander well and Maeda has struggled to an ERA of 6+ and is winless his last 5 starts after an excellent beginning to his major league career. I am confident that the Mets wont need too many to win this and the way they have hit righties,, Michael Conforto in particular means they should get them comfortably supported by Syndegaard who if he repeats the 2 run performance of 3 starts ago I cannot see this losing, I was expecting the price to be shorter than this, more like 2.10 so am happy to pile in   Good luck if you are playing today

    18-18-2 +39.90 todays play 6 pts St Louis @ Washington over 7 total runs 1.90 Bet365 I can say with a good level of confidence that we wont see a 20 strikeout game from Scherzer like the last time he face the Cards!!  In all seriousness, there are light winds forecast blowing out to left field today but the temperature and humidity is all unseasonably high in Washington at present and as such the ball should fly further than it has been. The home run has been the achilles heel of Max Scherzer this year with 14 allowed this season and 9 in his last 4 starts!,combined with the struggles of St Louis starter today Jame Garcia in recent days - 10 runs allowed his last two starts and plenty of power in both lineups, I think 7 looks a touch low in this one and am happy to play the over   Best of luck if you are playing today

    17-18-2 +32.90 back on an even keel now todays play 4 pts Boston (-3.5) to bt Colorado 2.75 Bet365 David Price has brought his performance in line with the metrics and it has showed in back to back solid performances. Jorge De la Rosa will pitch for Colorado tonight in his first start coming off the disabled list, he was not seen to best effect prior to going on the DL with an ERA this year over 10 and allowing too many home runs. That isnt going to play well against a Boston lineup that has power top to bottom and is plating runs at an almost historic rate. Assuming the home run issues that were causing Price some problems earlier this year dont rear their ugly head again then it is difficult to see past a large Boston win today,,  Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story would be the concerns in the Rockies lineup, but anything short of 4 runs for Colorado will in my mind see this bet a winner and Price hasnt looked likely to allow that many runs the last twice   Best of luck if you are playing today!

    16-18-2 +28.30 todays play 4 pts Oakland to bt Seattle 2.15 Bet365 Rich Hill has excelled for the A's in his last 6 starts with a sub 2 ERA, a lone bright spot for the struggling Oakland team. They visit the Mariners at Safeco Field today which is a great pitchers ballpark,Hill as a lefty negates a lot of the power in the Seattle lineup such as Cano, Seager and Martin, his visit to the Safe last moth was a success as he struck out 10 in an excellent performance. Taijuan Walker will pitch for Seattle and he has tailed off his last 4 starts with a 5+ ERA. The two teams have been trending in the opposite direction coming in to this series but I think the A's have the edge in the pitching matchup and are a value at odds against   best of luck if you are playing today

    15-18-2 +23.50   I as going to put settle up today as the main play but as that is literally about to start it seems a little pointless so 6 pts San Francisco to beat Chicago Cubs 1.80 Bet365 The Giants send ace Madison Bumgarner to the hill today and he has been in excellent form with a 1.69 ERA his last 6 starts, the Giants have been playing well winning 8 straight prior to defeat yesterday.The Cubs have not been playing as well the last week with some offensive limitations which will not be helped by facing Bumgarner. Kyle Hendricks is up for the Cubbies and he has struggled on teh road with an ERA over 5 this year he lost his only start at AT&T last year and has an ERA over 5 against San Francisco. Always like to take the home team in primetime games and Buymgarner is a bigger than usual price enabling us to do so due to teh Cubs early season form   Best of luck if you are playing today

    14-18-2 +19.20 Shocking couple of days for me the last two here is todays play 2 pts Colorado (-1.5) to bt Pittsburgh 3.15 Bet365 I personally have the Rockies as favs in this so am taking the alternate run line. Tyler Chatwood, the young lefty is a groundball pitcher, he has had his struggles at Coors but so have many pitchers pitching at altitude, on the road this year he is 4-0 0.33 ERA. These two teams lead baseball in batting average and Jon Niese will pitch for the Bucs and his high WHIP will not play well against a team that can hit and is willing to take the walks, he is also amongst the leaders in baseball with 11 HRs allowed so far this year, there is plenty of power in this Rockies lineup, none more so than Nolan Arenado and his 14 home runs this year. I can see the Rockies chasing Niese quite early in this game and Chatwood will only need to be solid rather than outstanding as he has been in all his other road starts thus far. Best of luck if you are playing today

    I see that (15 though as I am only adding the 15 profit on that bet} but yes an error, thanks for highlighting it, thought I was struggling more than it felt like lol
  11. MLB 2016 Season Daily picks

    14-17-2 +6.20 win some lose more sigh todays play 2pts Atlanta Braves @ Philadelphia Phillies - Race to 3 runs - Neither 7.00 Bet365 Simply put these are the two lowest scoring offensive lineups in MLB. Wisler will pitch for the Braves and he has gone 8 innings in each of his last three starts with a sub 2 ERA and Aaron Nola in opposition for the Phillies has been on fire going 3-0 sub 1.50 his last 5 starts. Looks a low scoring game all day long Best of luck if you are playing today
  12. MLB 2016 Season Daily picks

    14-16-2 +14.20 Hope some of you managed to get on that one!! todays main play is 8 pts NY Yankees @ Oakland Over 8 Total Runs 1.80 Bet365 Ivan Nova pitching for the Yankees has a few issues getting left handed batters out and the Athletics have plenty of lefties and sitch hitters so can stack their lineup against him. The A's have discovered their power this wee including 8 runs scored in each of the last two games. Kendall Graveman will take the hill for Oakland,, he has allowed 8 home runs in his last 4 games compiling an ERA approaching 10 in that timeframe. The Colosseum in Oakland is a park that favours pitchers but there are strong winds forecast blowing to the outfield assisting the hitters and with plenty of left handed power in the yankees lineup to take advantage of Gravemans woes, 8 runs just looks too low.   Best of luck if you are playing today     
  13. MLB 2016 Season Daily picks

    13-16-2 +14.20 fairly horrific outcome there todays play 5 pts Justin Verlander to strikeout 9+ and Detroit to beat Minnesota 4.00 Paddy Power Verlander has looked back to his best in recent starts allowing a single run against Texas and Baltimore striking out 8 and 9 respectively in those games. The Twins offense is nowhere near as powerful as the Orioles or Rangers and they rank ahead of both teams for strikeouts this season at 8th in MLB. Couple this with teh fact that the Tigers lineup which has scored 23 runs in its last 3 games gets to face Ricky Nolasco who has come back to earth with a bump following an excellent start to the year, he has allowed 14 runs his last 3 games then a Detroit win looks likely and I see no reason why Verlander cannot hit this number either (apart from the fact he apparently falls apart whenever I place a bet on Detroit when he pitches of course )   good luck if you play today (apologies for the short notice on the pick, busy day!!!)
  14. MLB 2016 Season Daily picks

    13-15-2 +22.20 todays main play 8 pts Boston (-1.5) to beat Kansas City 2.30 Bet365 The Red Sox will send Rick Porcello to the hill today and he has vastly improved on last years showing with the BoSox and should only need to continue that form for a Boston win here today. The champs have been really struggling to plate runs and rank last in the AL for runs scored now, Yordano Ventura will need to be at his absolute best to contain a Boston lineup that scores seemingly at will, he has struggled with his control in recent starts and has looked a long way from anything lie his best and I believe Boston will win this game comfortably as the Royals cant keep pace with their bats   Good luck if you play today 
  15. MLB 2016 Season Daily picks

    13-14-2 +27.20 tonights headline play  4 pts Texas @ Oakland Over 10 Total runs 2.75 Bet365 A matchup of pitchers who are struggling. Manaea for the A's has laboured to an ERA of 11+ to this point of the year and Derek Holland has collapsed failing to last 3 innings in his last 2 starts while surrendering a boatload of runs. He has a 7+ ERA on the road and although the colosseum is a huge ballpark and favours pitchers, ith forecast winds assisting two struggling hurlers I will back these offense to score plenty of runs tonight   Good luck if you are having a play
