MLB Picks, June 11th

My Astros seem to be turning the corner a bit and I have an opportunity to actually pick them to win a game. It's been a long time since I've done that.

$20 on Houston (Keuchel) [-1.5 @ +175]\ over Arizona (McCarthy)
Keuchel is 7-3 with a 2.50 ERA this season and 2-1 with a 1.29 in his last 3 starts. McCarthy is 1-8 with a 5.13 ERA this year and is 0-2 with a 6.75 in his last 3 outings. Both teams have played better of late with the Astros winning 4 of their last 6 and the D-Back 6 of 8.
Starting Bankroll              $1,500.00
Profit/Loss                          ($53.00)
Current Bankroll               $1,447.00

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 you own risk.

Good luck!


  1. Have you done an analysis on how you would have done if you had bet on Houston every game (or every home game)? Teams like that are often good plays I would guess.

    1. I know betting AGAINST the Astros last year would have been a bonanza. Some of the fruits of their farm system are starting to arrive at the major league level and I believe the worst is behind them. The secret to winning some money is to realize they've improved before the masses do.

      BTW, I heard you did okay in some kind of poker tournament :)

  2. Your chance to pick the Stros starts tomorrow when the Rays come to town. They are playing horribly. First they lose 3 pitchers and can't get more than 4 innings out of anyone not named David Price then when the pitching turns around they go 31 innings without scoring a run. Just ugly baseball. Houston might sweep.
