MLB Picks- Season Wrap Up

Another MLB season came to an end last night with the Red Sox hoisting the trophy. Quite a turnaround for them from a year ago.

Although last night's bet was a push, I managed to book another winning season, which is always a good thing!

Spring training is only 4 months away. For those who are interested, the Dodgers are the early favorite to win it all next year, paying 5-1. Detroit is 8-1, St. Louis 10-1, and Boston 12-1.

I'm not sure what the odds are on my Astros, but I'll have to assume they're a little longer than the ones listed here.  Oh well, hope springs eternal.

Starting Bankroll                          $1,500.00
Profit/Loss                                     $195.00
Final Bankroll                              $1,695.00

See ya next year!

Football Picks, October 26th

Another busy weekend of football reveals a few that are worth a peek.

$22 @ 11/10 on Utah (+7) over USC
The Utes upset Stanford, albeit at home. USC hasn't lived up to the hype this season. I'll take the touchdown in this one.
$22 @ 11/10 on Florida Atlantic (+24) over Auburn
Trap game for the Tigers, coming off an emotional win at Texas A&M. FAU is 11-0 ATS in their last 11 road games.

The Cougars are 8-0 ATS in their last 8 games. 
 
$22 @ 11/10 on the UNDER (41 pts.) Pittsburgh / Oakland

One game on the rink looks good.

MLB Picks, October 23rd


Game 1 of the World Series is tonight in Boston as the Red Sox host the Cardinals.

Wainwright is 2-1 with a 1.57 ERA this postseason. Southpaw Lester is 2-1, 2.33. The Redbirds have struggled against leftys this year. Temperature in the 40s and wet when the first pitch is thrown. Look for a low scoring affair which should set the tone for the series.

Hockey Picks, October 15th

The Blackhawks are going for their third Stanley Cup in five years. Can you say dynasty?

My track record picking winners in all the other major sports (baseball, football, basketball) is good, having never had a losing season. However, I can't say the same for hockey. Last year was my first season picking hockey games and it was not successful. I was able to figure a few things out as the season wore on and actually showed a nice profit the last couple of months. After bottoming out in mid April with a $423 loss, I was able to recover and finish with a much smaller $86 deficit. Hopefully I'll be able to continue the upward trend this season, but you might want to proceed with caution following my hockey picks until I prove myself :)

Now let's get started!

$10 on Colorado over Dallas -1 1/2 @ +170
The Avs are off to a fast start, winning all five games and only surrendering 4 goals.  
$10 on NY Islanders over Buffalo -1 1/2 @ +160
This is more a bet against Buffalo than it is one for New York. The Sabres are 0-7 thus far this season.
Starting Bankroll                                $1,500.00
Profit/Loss                                              $0
Current Bankroll                                $1,500.00

MLB Picks, October 15th

The ALCS moves to the Motor City for Game 3. It looks like a good opportunity to pad the ol' bankroll.

$20 on Detroit (Verlander) over Boston (Lackey) -1 1/2 @ +150
Verlander sports a 0.00 ERA in his last four starts, throwing 27 consecutive shutout innings. He gave up 4 runs in 5 innings in his only start against the Red Sox this season. Lackey has struggled on the highway this season, posting a 4-10 record with a 4.48 ERA. He is 0-1 with a 3.14 ERA in two starts against the Tigers this year.
Starting Bankroll                          $1,500.00
Profit/Loss                                     $233.00
Current Bankroll                          $1,733.00

Action is considered dead unless both listed pitchers start.

Football Picks, October 12th

Five games look promising on the Saturday NCAA menu.

$44 @ 11/10 on Oklahoma (-13) over Texas
The Sooners have won the last two meetings by a combined 80 points. OU is ranked sixth national in defense, allowing only 13 PPG. The storyline of this one will be if the Longhorns can stop the Sooner's running game. Texas allows 249 YPG rushing and Oklahoma runs for 246 YPG. It'll be a long day in Dallas for the burnt orange if they don't have the ball.
$44 @ 11/10 on Houston (-8 1/2) over Memphis
The host Cougars are 4-0 and averaging 43+ PPG. The Tigers are scoring less than 20 a game. It'll be hard for them to keep up offensively, especially if they turn the ball over. Houston is averaging 3.5 takeaways per game.
$22 @ 11/10 on Texas State (-6) over Louisiana-Monroe
The Duck Dynasty gang ain't gonna like this one. Texas State is 2-0 at home this season, beating their opponents by an average of 23 points. The visiting Warhawks only score 9+ PPG on foreign soil and surrender 41. Not good. The Bobcats are 6-3 ATS in their last 9 and La-Monroe is 1-6 in their last 7 ATS. Coach should be happy when this one ends :)
$22 @ 11/10 on Rice (+2) over UTSA
Two great nicknamed teams meet in the Alamo City when the Owls visit the Roadrunners. Rice is 8-2 in their last 10 games, which included a 34-10 thumping of UTSA last season. The Roadrunners have lost 4 of their last 5 and are 0-2 at home this season.
$22 @ 11/10 on Michigan (-1 1/2) over Penn State
The Wolverines are 5-0 ATS this season and their defense has not allowed a rushing touchdown. Penn State's Zach Zwinski has run for 8 of them this year. Who will control the line of scrimmage? Look for Michigan to eek out a win.

Starting Bankroll         $2,000.00

MLB Picks, October 8th

Two ALDS games today. I don't really have a feel for either one, so I'll pass on both of them.

The Dodgers wrapped up their series with Atlanta last night and added a few bucks to the ol' bankroll. Hopefully, the Cardinals will do the same tomorrow.

$65 on St. Louis (-160) to win series over Pittsburgh
Both teams have strong pitching, but St. Louis has the better offense, featuring 5 hitters averaging .296 and above. That should be enough to put them over the top against the Pirates.
Starting Bankroll                          $1,500.00
Profit/Loss                                     $192.50
Current Bankroll                          $1,692.50

Action is considered dead unless both listed pitchers start.

MLB Picks, October 7th

One game that looks interesting on the MLB playoff docket.

$20 on Detroit (Sanchez) over Oakland (Parker) -1 1/2 @ +145
Sanchez is 8-3 with a 2.90 ERA at home. Parker is 1-2 with a 9.20 ERA in his last three trips to the bump. Time for the Tigers to start hitting the ball.
$65 on St. Louis (-160) to win series over Pittsburgh
Both teams have strong pitching, but St. Louis has the better offense, featuring 5 hitters averaging .296 and above. That should be enough to put them over the top against the Pirates.
$65 on LA Dodgers (-160) to win series over Atlanta
The Dodgers have too much pitching for the Braves to overcome in a short series.
Starting Bankroll                          $1,500.00
Profit/Loss                                     $171.75
Current Bankroll                          $1,671.75

Action is considered dead unless both listed pitchers start.

Football Picks, October 6th

One game on the pro schedule looks worth a bet.

$22 @ 11/10 on Kansas City (-2 1/2) over Tennessee
The Titans lost their starting QB last week, which is never a good thing. The Chiefs are 4-0 and riding high. Going with the hot hand in this one.

Football Picks, October 5th

Several games look good on the Saturday NCAA menu.

$22 @ 11/10 on Oklahoma St. (-13 1/2) over Kansas St.
The Cowboys are averaging 45 ppg this season and have beaten K-State 3 straight at home. Kansas St. has had the turnover bug this year. They can't afford that today or this one will get away from them in a hurry.
$22 @ 11/10 on North Texas (-2 1/2) over Tulane
Both team's running games are on par, but North Texas has the better passing game. 
$22 @ 11/10 on Clemson (-13 1/2) over Syracuse
Clemson QB Boyd has thrown for 9 touchdowns this season and zero interceptions. The Tigers have won 12 straight by double digits versus unranked teams. 
$22 @ 11/10 on LSU (-9) over Mississippi St.
LSU has won 20 of the last 21 games between the two teams. 
$22 @ 11/10 on Virginia Tech (-7) over North Carolina
The Tar Heels gave up 600+ yards and 55 points in their last games. They are surrendering over 32 ppg this season. Va. Tech's defense has been much stingier, allowing only 15 ppg. The Hokies have won 4 straight. 






$22 @ 11/10 on Kansas City (-2 1/2) over Tennessee
The Titans lost their starting QB last week, which is never a good thing. The Chiefs are 4-0 and riding high. Going with the hot hand this Sunday.
