A 4-1 night last night. Not bad. Not bad at all. The only loss of the night came with the Astros losing to the Rangers. The Astros aren’t the team they have been for the last five years, but I guess it’s going to take losses like last night for me to stay away from their enticing money lines.
Here are the bets for Tuesday, April 26.
Yankees -290 over Orioles
Blue Jays -210 over Red Sox
Getting less-than-even odds on a two-team parlay isn’t ideal, but with the Yankees at -290 they need a partner tonight and the Blue Jays at home against Nick Pivetta seems like the best option. The Blue Jays’ numbers against Pivetta in his career look like slow-pitch Central Park numbers.
Dodgers-Diamondbacks Under 9.5 (-115)
It’s hard to find a 9 these days, let alone a 9.5. This is a dangerous one with the combination of Tony Gonsolin (who can be wild) and Zach Davies (who can’t strike anyone out). The goal here is that the Diamondbacks continues to be a joke and the Dodgers don’t cover this total on their own. There’s going to be a lot of baserunners. A lot. Just need the balls in play to find fielders.
