YOUR BETS FUCKING SUCK MINE PRINT PAPER - Dante


White Sox (-115) V Tigers (+105)

In the second game of this series, the White Sox face a Tigers team that surprisingly holds a winning record, sitting at 9-6. Pitching for the White Sox is Dylan Cease, who holds an ERA of 4.05 and a 2-1 record. For the Tigers, Matthew Boyd will be taking the mound, the lefty holds an ERA of 9.20 and an 0-1 record. This White Sox lineup is no joke. There is power from top to bottom, from Tim Anderson to the rookie phenom Luis Robert, the White Sox are a very good, playoff quality team, and they love to hit against lefties. Against left handed pitchers this year, the White Sox have a team batting average of .270 and they have more total hits than total strikeouts versus lefties, last season vs the White Sox, Boyd was not good, giving up eleven runs in four appearances. As for the Tigers offense, they hit a poor .205 against right handed pitchers, Cease is a very average pitcher, but other than the top half, the Tigers don’t have much to offer hitting wise. The discrepancy between pitchers, not to mention how well the White Sox hit against lefties says it all. I’m going to play it safe and go with the first five innings ML rather than the full game just because the White Sox bullpen is extremely inconsistent.

The Pick: White Sox F5 -135

White Sox 7- Tigers 4

Cubs (+110) V Indians (-120)

I can see the hype around the Indians coming into this game, with a very average offense thus far, this would be the perfect game for them to break out against the Cubs’ notoriously bad bullpen, however, they will have to wait until at least the 6th inning as the Cubs’ ace, Kyle Hendricks will be taking the mound, Hendricks holds an ERA of 3.54 and a 2-1 record. Versus right handed pitchers the Indians are bad, and I mean really bad. They have a team batting average of .188 and fifty- six more strikeouts than hits. Versus Hendricks, I don’t see the Indians scoring much against one of the best right handers in the game. Pitching against Hendricks, is Carlos Carrasco, who holds a 2-1 record and a 2.50 ERA. Carrasco is good but people seem to overhype him, last season, he held a 5.29 ERA and a 6-7 record. The Cubs are solid against righties, posting a .250 batting average, but I see them easily out scoring the Indians in the first five.

The Pick: Cubs F5 +100

Cubs 6- Indians 5

Rockies (-105) V Diamondbacks (-105)

One of the biggest surprises of the season has been the Colorado Rockies, led by a murders’ row type of lineup including Trevor Story, Charlie Blackmon and Nolan Arenado, this lineup is scary for opposing pitchers, especially when playing in Colorado. Pitching for the Diamondbacks is Luke Weaver, who has been terrible thus far posting an 0-3 record and 12.19 ERA and not having an outing where he has gone more than four innings. Versus right handers, the Rockies have a batting average of .270, one of the best in the league. I expect them to hit very well tonight against the struggling Weaver and a poor Diamondbacks bullpen.

The Pick: Rockies TT O5.5

Rockies 8- Diamondbacks 6

Twins (-130) V Brewers (+120)

The Twins, who were once the hottest team in baseball, has recently gone cold, getting swept by the Royals and losing last night versus the Brewers. Today however, one of the most underrated pitchers in the league will be taking the mound for them, former Dodger, Kenta Maeda. Maeda has looked great thus far, holding a 2-0 record and a 2.65 ERA. The Brewers are below average versus right handers, hitting .205, I expect Maeda to continue his hot run of form and shut down the Brewers so far disappointing offense. Pitching for Milwaukee is Eric Lauer, the lefty has pitched twice this year, going three innings and giving up six runs in an 8-3 loss versus the Reds and a two inning performance versus the Cubs in their opening series. The Twins have been very average versus lefties this year, hitting .229, but I still expect them to get the win here and bounce back after yesterday's loss.

The Pick: Twins -130

Twins 5- Brewers 2

Mariners (+115) V Rangers (-125)

Taijuan Walker takes the mound today for a Mariners squad who has looked as expected thus far, Walker has an ERA of 5.29 and holds a 1-2 record, however his one win was a seven inning, one hit outing versus the Athletics. Versus lefties, the Rangers are solid, holding a .239 batting average. Walker is better than his stats will show and he will prove that tonight. Pitching for the Rangers, is Jordan Lyles, a right hander holding a 1-1 record and a 5.56 ERA. The Mariners are average versus right handers, hitting .235, despite five of their starters hitting above .275 against them. I see the Mariners getting the win here in a close one.

The Pick: Mariners +115

Mariners 5- Rangers 4

Atalanta BC (+200) V Paris St. Germaine (+108)

In this Champions League Quarter Final, both teams will be without their best, for Atalanta, it is Josip Illicic, who is thinking about retirement after finding his wife in bed with another man, and for PSG, Kylian Mbappe may be ready to go, but he will not be in the starting eleven. Angel Di Maria will also be unavailable for PSG as he is suspended. This means Neymar will have to step up and be PSG’s star, which I simply don’t see happening versus the strongest attack in the Serie A. The loss of Ilicic will throw Luis Muriel in the starting lineup. If there was a “12th man of the year award” for Serie A Muriel would be the unanimous winner. He averages a goal every 69 minutes played, leading the Serie A in that category by a long shot. Anyone taking PSG is either picking them based on brand name or doesn’t know about Mbappe’s injury as all the signs point to Atalanta getting the win, with all of PSG’s injuries and Atalanta playing in a far superior league, I see Atalanta getting the win, but will play it safe and go with the +.5 spread.

The Pick: Atalanta +0.5

Atalanta 2- PSG 1
