Monday April 4

Taking two slight underdogs, two small favorites, and two totals for opening day. All plays for a single unit:

Milwaukee(Sheets)/Pittsburgh(Perez) Under 7.5 runs (-118)
Cincy(Wilson) over New York (Martinez) +140
Cubs (Zambrano) over Arizona (Vasquez) -123
Colorado (Kennedy) over San Diego (Williams) -103
Cleveland (Westbrook) over Chicago (Buehrle) +119
Tampa Bay(Brazelton)/Toronto(Halladay) Under 8.5 runs (+103)


I rarely ever will place a single bet on anything above -150 ($1.67 in decimal odds). On rare occasions, I may parlay a couple heavy favorites, but I prefer to bet on underdogs in baseball, the minus money plays I entered for tomorrow are pretty low, -123 ($1.81) being the highest juiced play.

I'm not sold on this Mets team at all. I don't have a very high grade on them despite their additions. I'm sure both Beltran and Pedro will want to impress in their first games, but will that happen, that's the question. I like the makeup of this Reds team. Oh well, all of these are just single unit plays. I don't get into serious wagering until after 10-12 games. Good luck to you if you have any bets yourself

Re: Monday April 4

I rarely do the traditional run lines (-1.5) I use Pinnacle for my baseball straight wagering, shop lines for parlays and round robins. They allow you to take a team at -1 (so if they win by 1, you push instead of losing). I will sometimes take the dog at -1.5 runs though for some nice odds at around $3.50 to $4.00 (decimal odds for you )

Re: Monday April 4

My only play is for bonderman to start strongly for the tigers and cover the -1.5 run line paying a cool $2.30

Re: Monday April 4

Detroit's rolling for you BG

Pourous defense by both teams in the Pitt/Milwaukee game has allowed each team to score a run. The Under 7.5 going to be iffy now, but both Perez and Sheets throwing well.

Re: Monday April 4

I played a seattle win and toronto win parlay. Toronto cuz tampa has nothing and docs comeback begins today. Seattle cuz big off season pick ups and their defence is back to where it was a few years ago as tops in the al in quality which moyer feasted on teams with, so had to back them too. And a bit of home team bias for seattle.
