A Line of Interest

I am not touching the game, but an interesting line tonight from baseball.

Texas Rangers (+177) vs NYY (-193)

I understand Tanaka is a better pitcher than Nick Martinez.  I understand the Yankees are playing at home.  What I do NOT understand is how this line is so high.  America doesn’t understand either…

06/29/16 Make Pick

963 Texas 8½o-115 1.5(-120) 170 o 9.0 (-120) 3256 49% 63% 41%
7:05PM 964 New York Yankees -200/+170 -1.5(100) -195 u 9.0 (100) 51% 37% 59%

The 63% refers to people betting the Rangers ML.  And I dont want to hear, “people are betting value.”  Garbage, people are not bright.   A line of interest indeed.


Now THAT is a bad beat for America.  Vegas knows!  The fix is in!

We are on a run.  Let’s keep it going…

People need to start paying attention to my baseball plays.  Fading my action so far has been the best quick rich scheme to not involve a Wilpon in ages.  Let’s start winning some.

MLB and a Horsey

Riding the anti-Oriole Express tonight.  Have Jesse Hahn @ +112 @ 15.  I’ll update my pathetic bank at some point.  Have 3 bucks on Lani for Kentucky…

MLB Play

Broke even last night, neither Rays or O’s hit for shit for Baltimore got the big bop.

My boy Bassitt, see what he can do.

Oakland +121 @ 12

Bank : -55.52

ZOMG a winner

Not so much a winner, but a bet against a loser.  Whenever possible over the next week or so the play is against Baltimore.  Their whole team is struggling to hit at the moment, Trumbo and Machado most importantly.  We will also be banking on the consistent quality of Nick Tropeano over the human coin flip that is Chris Young.


RAYS -129 @ 16

ANGELS -117 @ 16

BANK : -53.20

MLB Play(s)

I tell you, it’s super easy to figure out your bank when you only lose bets.  None of that fancy parlay calculator business needed around here.  Just a good ol’ fashioned subtraction button, please and thank you.  Side note, the ML for the Rays tonight is about -125, but there run line is like (-1.5 +170).  I could be wrong but this appears way out of whack.  For comparison, some similar MLs with their run line

PIT (-128) (-1.5 +132)

CWS (-115) (-1.5 +142)

NYY (-119) (-1.5 +138)

KC (-122) (-1.5 +134)

It would seem that Vegas is saying, Tampa may win tonight, in fact they probably will, but there is no way in Hell they are winning by more than a run.  I could be misreading things but I think thats right.

Rays -125 @ 16

BANK : -$66

MLB Plays

We lose on Friday when Brian McCann hits one of probably 3 home runs he will hit this year off a lefty.  Plenty more action where that came from.  All plays @ 18.  Good luck out there.
