Our return to the three-pick format was good to us on Friday. Between the Reds downing the Cubs at home and the Nationals jumping on Marcus Stroman, we turned a 2-1 day. It was nice to get back to our winning ways. Hopefully, the Tampa Bay Rays can help us keep it going.
Here’s your obligatory record update – since July 19, that’s probably going to be our reference date for a hot second, we’re now 28-11 when we stick to three picks. I’m getting bold today and going underdog heavy, so our net profits might see a bit of a jump if we fare well. Fear not, though, these games look like solid value plays with price tags no lower than +118. That bargain play is actually my Pick of the Day, which is now 5-2 in our first seven tries, but more on that later.
Now, I’m never one to question the bookmakers, but I feel like getting today’s teams, for the value that I did, shouldn’t have been allowed. Like, who signed off on these figures? It genuinely looks like they were trying to lose cash, but hey, no arguments here.
I’ll take the Indians at home over the Red Sox, the Tampa Bay Rays on the road against the lowly Padres and the Diamondbacks at Coors, all as underdogs, nine times out of 10. However, I wouldn’t expect you to just take my word for it.
That’s why I break it all down for you every day. You’ll make an educated bet and possibly win a little cash.
Just standard procedure around here.
