Too Much Hutch

Lou’s boy Drew Hutchison is -180something in a game tonight where he has 5.4-5.5 era against a perfectly respectable gentleman pitcher in Kendall Graveman.  Counterpoint, this means betting against Toronto.  Resolution… Oakland (+1.5 -120) @ 16

A Tradition Like Several Others

In my Fantasy Golf League I am taking Adam Scott to win this week.  I would have hands down taken Rory this week if he was healthy.  Below are additional side bets I have going.  I am in the process of trying to get Loubacca to take some Krazy exacto bets that pay out like […]

Ample Time Plays

All plays here are @ 17.  Loubacca is taking Germany thru me this evening. Min/Cin Over 7.5 -123 Tex +143 ML Bos/Tor Under 9 -110 Hou (-1.5 +142) Ari +108 ML Sea +108 ML ***UPDATE*** Canceling Bos/Tor Under.  Estrada likely to be fatigued after last few outings.  Eduardo Rodriguez was shelled last time after allegedly […]

Beyond Last Second Play

Natinals as Loubacca says, -170 @ 21.  This bet is based on 2 words, Freddie Freeman.  Would not be surprising if many pitchers who face the Braves over the next couple weeks appear Kershaw-like.

MLB Play

I’m a fixin’ to get fairly aggressive on baseball plays moving forward.  Let’s start it out right. Total Runs Today Away Teams +111 @ 25

Bball Future

I have taken the Bulls @ +743 @ 16 to win the Eastern Conference.  The Cavs and Hawks are overvalued ludicrously and marginally respectively.  When I looked in late February I want to say Chicago was still being priced around +250, so this appears to be good value.

Pat Hetic

It’s time for our longest running segment here on miraclecovers.  Pat gets wasted and chases dead money with horrific 2nd half bets on NFL Sunday?  No silly, it’s time for baseball over/unders.  I only had about 3 months to get my act together on these and I am late and under-prepared.  But what are you […]

Over? Under?? I hardly know her!!

Going to save comment on these until making picks in about a week.  Detroit and Philly are no-shows at the moment… Arizona Diamondbacks 72.5 Atlanta Braves 73.5 Baltimore Orioles 82.5 (Over -127) Boston Red Sox 85.5 (Over -124) Chicago Cubs 82.5 (Over -127) Chicago White Sox 81.5 ( Over -125) Cincinnati Reds 78.5 (Under -149) […]

Just a quickie

Slightly random bet here that I am probably putting about 25% too much on. Di Maria to score today – Yes (+260) @ 16 Special thanks go out to my Irish brothers at Paddy Power (!) for the line.

Champions League

My apologies for negligence recently.  Action will be picking up greatly now… Chelsea to win CL +726 @ 7
