8.6 Daytime Gambling

We went 2-2 yesterday, with a blown save capped off by a wild pitch in LA and a walk off walk in extra innings in Chicago robbing us of daytime bliss. Luckily, there’s some good matchups today we can still get rich on.

Reds (+150) vs Cardinals

The Reds are an underrated home team for day games with balls flying out of he Great American Ballpark all the time, and Wacha is struggling on the road. Also, it’s about time to start looking out for the Cards to go into coast mode and that would especially apply on getaway days like this.

Dodgers (-270) at Phillies

The price doesn’t matter. The Dodgers are in a tight division race and Grienke is on the mound against a bad pitcher for Philly.

Royals (-115) at Tigers

Take the much better Royals team to clinch this series.

Brewers (-112) vs Padres

In a battle of two mediocre teams, take Garza at home.

Diamondbacks (+160) vs Nats

With the Nats struggling the way they are, they should not be such heavy favorites against a red hot D-Backs team. With this price, I’m comfortable betting on Hellickson to have a bounce back game and for the Arizona bats to light up Joe Ross now that he’s been pitching long enough for the scouting report on him to be out.
