  1. No problems, its been a slow start to the year but we should get going soon touch wood!!
  2. 9-13-2 -3.86 bad run but a max bet tonight 10pts Over 9 runs Milwaukee @ Cincinnati 1.95 Bet365 We have two terrible pitchers in Chase Anderson (ERA 10+ last 3 starts) and Alfredo SImon (13+ ERA this yr) facing off against each other in a hitters ballpark Great American Ballpark with forecast winds blowing out to right field assisting the hitters further which shouldnt be necessary in this matchup. Both lineups have proved capable of scoring runs as teh Reds showed with 7 against Jake Peavy and the Giants under similar circumstances yesterday and Milwaukee
  3. 9-12-2 +1.14 right nursed myself almost back to full health, the calendar has flipped over to May and its time to lift off 5 pts Baltimore (-1.5) to bt New York Yankees 2.55 Bet365 The yankees send CC Sabathia to the hill tonight and he has been hit hard recently when visiting Camden Yards to the tune of 0-5 in 8 starts with a 5.64 ERA, we are trusting the young pitcher Tyler Wilson somewhat but the Yankees arent scoring runs and Wilson was solid against the Royals and White Sox in the two starts he has made and I think the Orioles will tee off tonight, Trumbo in par
  4. 9-11-2 +7.14 Been rough as dog sh!t all week long Here is todays main play 6 pts New York Yankees @ Boston Red Sox Over 8 Total Runs 1.86 Bet365 Masahiro Tanaka vs Henry Owens is the pitching matchup, Tanaka is the best pitcher involved but faces a Boston lineup that can score virtually at will and has had their ay with him, he carries a 7+ ERA against the BoSox. Henry Owens gets to oppose a scuffling Yanks lineup but he has had issues against them getting hit hard whenever he has faced them including allowing 7 runs in less than 2 innings the last time roun
  5. 9-10-2 +14.14 strange last couple of days in baseball, lets hopw tonight sees normality return 7 pts Chicago Cubs (-1.5) to bt Milwaukee Brewers 2.05 Bet365 Kyle Hendricks has a good record pitching against Milwaukee and the Cubs are a mile ahead of all other clubs in run differential as their mixture of power hitting and quality pitching sets them up as real contenders even at this early stage, there isnt a ballpark in the league half of this lineup couldnt hit it out of. Jimmy Nelson has been the best starter statistically for the Brewers but a deeper look at his n
  6. 9-9-2 +18.14 todays play is 4 pts Boston Red Sox (-1.5) to beat Houston Astros 2.95 Bet365 The enigma that is Clay Bucholz will pitch for the Red Sox and oppose the scuffling Astros 5th starter Mike Fiers, Fiers has been poor this year allowing 6 HRs across his 3 outings, while Bucholz has had two bad outings allowing 5 runs and an excellent performance last time to shut down Toronto. At the end of the day I believe in Bucholz more as a pitcher than Fiers and Houston arent hitting, if we know one thing its that Boston can score and the ballpark and Fiers should allow
  7. Well back on the downward trend!! 8-9-2 +14.70 todays play 4 pts Texas Rangers @ Chicago White Sox Under 8 total runs 1.86 Bet365 Jose Quintana is excellent on the hill and ultra consistent for Chicago, you are almost guaranteed 6 innings with max 2 runs allowed before handing the game over to the bullpen and a set of relievers with the lowest ERA in baseball to this point in the season. The White Sox lineup is struggling and has historically struggled with left handed pitching. Texas sends lefty Martin Perez to the mound tonight and this would suggest Chica
  8. Hello mate, welcome to the forum A little bit of reasoning as to why you are betting these selections is always appreciated, people are far more likely to pay attention if they know why you are placing your bets. Please make sure you always quote the bookmaker that you are taking your prices with as well Best of luck
  9. Well back on the winning road!!! 8-8-2 +18.70 4 pts Toronto (-1.5) to bt Baltimore 2.75 Bet365 Chris Tillman gets hit hard by this Jays lineup, he has lost 6 straight, is winless in more than 10 starts against them and had an ERA over 11 against the Blue Jays last season. Marco Estrada will pitch for the Jays in opposition and while not great last time against Boston had an ERA of approx 3.5 in starts against them last year. stick the money down and watch the annual Blue ays "Tillman Feast" in this one good luck all having a play
  10. Something of a disastrous week for me this week 7-8-2 +9.70 Todays play is 4 pts Boston Red Sox (-1.5) to beat Tampa Bay Rays 3.25 Bet365 The Red Sox celebrate 104 years of Fenway Park today by hosting division rival Tampa. The way Chris Archer has pitched this year has been dreadful with serious control issues and walking too many batters, he will be opposed by Rick Porcello who I dont entirely trust and has allowed a few runs himself but has still been more consistent than Archer, There is far more potential for runs in this Red Sox lineup particular
  11. 7-7-2 +12.70 Alfredo Simon scratched by the Reds so money back void so will put a different game up 3 pts Miami Marlins (-1.5) to beat Washington Nationals 3.65 Bet365 Stephen Strasburg has had issues throughout his career with the Marlins and has an ERA over 6 his last 7 against them, I am willing to take a chance that teh struggles continue and Adam COnley continues to make strides shown in his last start against the Mets, just feel the market is over reacting to Strasburgs name and not his performance against these Marlins, Ozuna and Stanton have partic
  12. 7-7-1 +12.70 Something of a disastrous outcome as the Phillies win it in extras sigh Hers is today's main play 5 pts Over 8.5 Total Runs Colorado Rockies @ Cincinnati Reds 1.83 Bet365 This game features two pitchers who are struggling mightily. Alfredo Simon carries an ERA over 11 into teh game at this point of the season and has an ERA of 11+ when faced with these Colorado Rockies, Jorge de la Rosa will oppose for the Rox and he showed improvement - though still not good last time out ut has struggled when visiting Cincinnati in the past where his ERA is ov
  13. 7-6-1 +22.70 another comfortable win and a strong play tonight 10 pts Washington (-1.5) to beat Philadelphia 2.10 Bet365 The Nationals bats have woken up with 23 runs in the last 3 games and they face Charlie Morton who had a good start last time out versus an inept San Diego Padres lineup but was hit hard by a below average Cincinnati reds lineup the first start. Morton looks likely to experience issues with Bryce Harper and Daniel Murphy today as he has issues against left handed batters and this is a problem against two of the hottest hitters in the gam
  14. 6-6-1 +17.10 fairly simple with a 14-3 win last night here is todays selection 4 pts Chicago Cubs(-2.5) to beat Colorado Rockies 2.40 Bet365 There is no doubt the Rockies can hit, but Mr consistency Jake Arrieta the reigning Cy Young Award winner in the National League goes tonight for the cubbies. Chicago can score as well and boast the best run differential in baseball at this early stage of the season but already by a wide margin. They too can score with the best of them and a loaded lineup is a good chance for us to cash in on the sub par Christian Bergm
  15. that worked out as well as we could hope, velasquez was fantastic for Philly!!! 5-6-1 +12.70 On to todays selection 4 pts St Louis Cardinals (-1.5) to beat Cincinnati Reds 2.20 Bet365 Carlos Martinez has been excellent at home throughout his career, the somewhat questionable St Louis lineup has made hay when they have had the advantage of feasting on poor pitching and tonight is the turn of Tim Melville who did well on debut but it will tae a lot more than that for me to trust a pitcher making his 2nd big league start that carries a minor league ERA of 4+ in
  16. 4-6-1 +5.70 Well only 6 runs last night so on to todays play 4 pts Philadelphia Phillies (-1.5) to bt San Diego Padres 2.75 Bet365 I must be feeling ill taking the Phillies!!! In all seriousness they wanted Velasquez in the trade with Houston that sent closer Ken Giles the other way and Velasquez delivered with an excellent performance his first time out for Philly. Now he gets to take on the light hitting San Diego Padres who ended a 20 inning scoreless streak with a late run last night. This from a team that also got shut out three consecutive times to start the ye
  17. 4-5-1 +11.70 If it aint broke dont fixit! 6 pts Baltimore Orioles @ Boston Red Sox Over 9 Total Runs 1.86 Bet365 Today we get these two lineups thaat are hitting fairly well Baltimore in particular against Joe Kelly who was hideous his first start and now has a team that has the platoon advantage on him in the main and he has struggled with in the past compiling an ERA north of 7 against the O's. Ubaldo Jiminez is up for the undefeated Orioles and he looked good in his first start but is a pitcher who has experienced struggles in the past against Boston with a 7+ ERA
  18. So of course Price labours through 5 innings, gets only 8 strikeouts but the Baltimore win it late to make it all irrelevant, man the boston red sox cant pitch 3-5-1 +6.00 pts Todays main play is: 6 pts Baltimore Orioles @ Boston Red Sox Over 9 total runs 1.95 William Hill Mike Wright pitches for Baltimore today and started on fire last year thru 2 starts before collapsing down the stretch losing his last 6 with an ERA north of 10. Clay Bucholz opposes for the BoSox and is wildly inconsistent and has been over the last two injury plague
  19. Well that was no good so 3-4-1 +14.00 the season Todays main play 8pts David Price to record 9+ Strikkeouts and Boston Red Sox to beat Baltimore Orioles 2.80 paddy Power Yeah I know Baltimore are the last remaining unbeaten but this matchup is two pitchers who have solid records againt todays opponents. Price has excelled at Fenway as a visitor (6-1 for his career) and makes his debut for Boston in his new home tonight. He is a pitcher who ranks around the top 5 in baseball for strikeouts every year and faces a Baltimoe lineup that either strik
  20. Yep turned out nice!!!! Unlucky on your under from yesterday, felt for you when they loaded them up in the 9th as it looked in trouble
  21. well that worked out with Kemp going deep twice and an easy Padres win !!! takes us to 3-3-1 (+18.00) for the season todays play is 4 pts Kansas City Royals (-1.5) to beat Minnesota Twins 2.35 Bet365 Ricky Nolasco takes the hill for the Twins. He was terrible last year with an ERA north of 6 for the Twins and struggled massively since his move to the American League and allowed 5 runs in less than 3 innings when he bumped in to the Royals last year. Say what you want about Edinson Volquez, and I am not usually keen on trusting
  22. so with that game postponed I am going to put up another selection San Diego Padres @ Colorado Rockies - Matt Kemp to hit a HR and San Diego to win 2 pts @10.00 Paddy Power Jorge De la Rosa historically has navigated Coors Field very well, however the Padres have given him absolute fits,he went 0-3 with a 7.94 ERA against them in 4 starts last year including 9 runs allowed in 2 innings in the only start against San Diego at Coors. Matt Kemp has hit 3 HR in 27 plate appearances against De la Rosa in the last 5 years and seems a reasonable bet to go deep again at alt
  23. Well, that didnt quite go to plan takes us to 2-3 levels on the season My main play today is 4 pts Washington Nationals to beat Miami Marlins 2.35 Bet365 Tom Koehler takes the hill for the Marlins and is a middle of the road pitcher with a 4= ERA through 87 career starts. In Washington he struggles massively1-4 and teh ERA spikes above 6. Bryce Harper in particular sees the baseball more like a beach ball with 5 career home runs off Koehler. Joe Ross showed enough when he pitched in the rotation last year while Stras
  24. cheers jawain wouldnt disagree with any of those games really. best of luck
  25. So the Orioles got there..........just that takes us to 2-2 +5.00 on this thread Todays main play 5 pts Los Angeles Dodgers @ San Francisco Giants Over 8 Total Runs 1.83 Bet365 This is the MLB leading team in runs scored at this early stage, the Dodgers against the Giants who are tied second in the same category. Throw in Matt Cain who has a 5+ ERA in his last 5 games against these Dodgers and Ross Stripling who will start for the Dodgers as their 5th starter. He won the job in camp but was only pitching at Double A level in the minor leagues
