I’ll take a 3-0 start to the year on Opening Day, even if it meant two of our games covered by only a half run a piece. We’ll be on the wrong side of those games plenty this year so take em when you can.
Our futures plays have started off how we’d hoped, all but the Astros. It’s only 1 game though. They’ve got 58 more to go before I’ll be worried. I was very close to taking the under in their game tonight but the line (o/u 8) was just set too low for my liking. I’m predicting a 5-2 win for Texas.
For Tuesday, we’ve got a smaller than usual card with only 7 games, 2 of which are season openers (BAL at TAM & CLE at TOR). I do still like one game however.
1 Unit – San Francisco at LA Dodgers (+103)
Defending World champs send Madison Bumgarner to the mound in game two against the Dodgers tonight. Yesterdays game went down to the wire until, of all people, Clayton Kershaw broke it open with a 420 foot solo shot to center. Lucky for the Giants, they won’t have to face him on the mound (or at the plate!) tonight. The Dodgers will send instead to the mound rookie Hyun-Jin Ryu. Lets face the facts here, Hyun will be:
- Making his major league debut
- Following a 4 hit shutout from Cy Younger Clayton Kershaw
- Facing the defending world champions
If those three points weren’t enough, he’ll be going toe to toe with Madison Bumgarner who is 5-2 in his career against the Dodgers with a 2.98 ERA. This game is all about experience. At even odds, I’ll take the defending champs here against a rookie pitcher any day.
