MLB Picks, May 4th

Three games on the MLB docket today that are worth a look.

$10 on Arizona (Miley) over NY Mets (Gee) -1 1/2 @ +$155
Miley has been impressive thus far this season, posting a 3-0 record, with a 1.29 ERA. Gee has struggled at home, going 0-2, with a hefty 7.50 ERA and has a 4.79 in his last three starts. The Mets are 4-7 versus southpaws this season.
$10 on Tampa Bay (Price) over Oakland (Ross) -1 1/2 @ +$105
Price is 3-0, with a 1.71 ERA in his last three trips to the bump. Ross is 1-1, 6.48 on the season and was shelled for 9 runs in 4 innings of work against the Orioles in his last outing. 
$10 on St. Louis (Lohse) over Houston (Harrell) -1 1/2 @ +$105
I hate to bet against my Astros, especially against the hated Redbirds (sorry Mojo and Chad), but the pitching match up strongly favors the Cards. Lohse has been nothing short of spectacular this season, posting a 4-0 record, with a 1.62 ERA. Impressive. Harrell is 0-2, 5.60 the last three times he touched his toe to the rubber and gave up 5 runs in 6 innings in his last outing versus the Reds.
 Starting Bankroll           $1,500.00
Profit/Loss                     $ 192.25
Current Bankroll            $1,692.25

Action is considered dead unless both listed pitchers start.

All picks are for entertainment purposes only with no guarantees implied. Any money wagered is at your own risk.

Good luck!


  1. The SL Cards are likely bullies on the block most years and are pretty good again this year. No offense taken.

  2. I don't follow MLB nearly well enough to comment on your bets, but I'm putting my money (and whatever else I can) on whatever team that gal in the pic plays for!
