If you’ve been following my picks lately, they’ve been fire. Pick these teams today to keep getting richer…
COPA AMERICA: Columbia +0.5 (-102) vs Argentina (Columbia three way ML: +395)
Argentina is the favorite to win the tournament because of Lionel Messiah, but they’ve been anything but impressive so far. In their last game, they struggled mightily to eke out a 1-0 win against Jamaica. They’ve also had a lot of internal turmoil. Their brand new coach was fired from Barcelona just last year, partly because of tensions he had with Messi. I expect him to be fired shortly after this game for the same reasons.
Columbia has had struggles of their own, but they are a much more talented all around team than Argentina. We’re definitely going with Columbia tonight. Remember, do 5x your standard baseball unit for these soccer games. Put four of those units on the spread with Columbia getting an extra half point. Then, put the other on Columbia winning outright on the three way moneyline at +395.
Now on to baseball…
Braves (+185) at Pirates (-210)
Take Liriano at home against an awful road team.
Nationals (-220) at Phillies (+190)
Scherzer against the Phillies? Yes please.
White Sox (+142) at Tigers (-157)
The White Sox blow and the Tigers don’t. Also, Sanchez has been hot lately and the Tigers own Quintana.
Indians (-101) at Orioles (-109)
Tough game to predict here, but I’ll take Kluber at this price any day.
Reds (-119) at Mets (+109)
Thor has slowed down a lot since his red hot start in the majors. Cueto returns for the Reds. Take Cincy.
Dodgers (-123) at Marlins (+113)
Nicolino was awesome for the Marlins in his debut last week. Take him at plus money for the Marlins, who are one of the most underrated home teams in the majors.
Red Sox (+106) at Rays (-116) [3x units]
How the fuck are the Rays only at -116 at home against this god awful Red Sox team? Take the Rays at 3x units.
Twins (+107) at Brewers (-117)
Take the Twins at plus money against this terrible Milwaukee team with a struggling Lohse on the mound.
Royals (+113) at Athletics (-123)
The Athletics have been hot lately and trot out one of the best #2s in the big leagues in Jesse Hahn tonight. The Royals have been slumping.
Diamondbacks (+134) at Padres (-144)
Take the Diamondbacks and their rookie phenom Robbie Ray against one of the most disappointing teams in the majors tonight.
Rockies (+120) at Giants (-130) [3x units]
Fade the Rockies on the road in a hitters park against one of the best teams in baseball. Easy. Put down 3x units for this.
