$10 on Minnesota (Liriano) over Cleveland (Talbot) @ +$180
I seldom bet on a team playing as bad as the Twins are right now, losing 9 of 10 going into Friday's game, but the line is just too juicy to pass up. Liriano is 1-0, 0.83 ERA in his last three starts, while Talbot is 0-2, 10.67 in his last three. At +$180, it's worth a small wager.
$40 on St. Louis (Lohse) over ChiCubs (Lopez), -1.5 @ +$110
Lohse is 2-0, 1.47 ERA in his last three trips to the bump. Lopez is 2-4, 6.17 on the highway this year. The Cards have won 7 of their last ten games and are 8-4 versus the Cubs this season going into Friday night's game.
Starting Bankroll $1,500.00
