In case you missed it…WE’RE ROLLING! 2/3 Last week on MLB Bets, and swimming in the filthy cockroach covered dollar bills that didn’t make it to your local gentlemen’s club stage floor. Anywho…
Now that spring is transitioning slowly into summer and we’re through the “May the 4th Be With You” and “Cinco De Drinko” shenanigans of the first week of May, I thought it’s best to make today’s picks a “BROS Betting Baseball” special edition with my IRL brother (Propag)Andrew (@Abookay3 on Twitter)!
1. In the battle for cheapest franchise in baseball, the Pittsburgh Pirates (-115) take on the Cincinnati Reds (-105) starting at 12:40 Eastern. I can tell you they’re both throwing out their RHPs, as Brubaker takes the mound for the Pirates and Overton is trotting out for the Reds. Otherwise, the actual stats are pretty similar between both teams with one key exception: If you blind bet $1K against the Reds moneyline all year, you’d be up $15K. Don’t over think this one, fade the Reds like a Crip standing on the Boise State 50 yard line.
2. Now, in case you’re bad with puns, Andrew loves him some props. I mean he lovesprops more than a Carrot Top and Gallagher comedy show! Prop play for Friday is also in the PIT vs. CIN game, with Brubaker Over 5.5 Strikeouts. Cincy is bottom 5 for batting average, runs, hits, on base %, and slugging %. Even though Brubaker’s ERA is floating around 6.2, he’s fanned 21 batters in 20.1 innings pitched. LOVE this prop.
3. The last pick for the day rides the hot bats of the New York Yankees (-165) at home against the Texas Rangers (+145). Even though the Rangers righty Otto is sporting a 2.89 ERA, he’s going up against the 2-0 RHP Cole and the Bronx Bombers who are currently 1st in slugging % AND HRs, and top 5 in both batting AVG and runs. I love the Yankees so much, I’m taking the -1.5 plus money (I’m also the guy who loves McRibs and Spam, so hey to each his own).
