I love all things sports and am a little league coach. I love baseball the most but follow all sports really. I love reading and talking sports and that's how I spend most of my time. I consider myself more of a recreational gambler but want to get better and am dedicated to keeping up with everything all year round.

    this is one of the best pitchers getting the rockies on the road? So realistically how many runs can you count on from the rockies who've struggled all year long to produce away from coors. Ryu has kind of come back to earth in this second half of the season and doesn't quite have the numbers he was once posting which were video game numbers. But a 2.46 ERA is still one hell of a feet but it's nothing compared to that 1.28 he had for a long stretch of the season. Senzatela is very hard to defend I get that he's walked as many batters as he's struck out this season. He's also been blown up his last five starts and has given up AT LEAST 6 earned in all of those games and 8 in one. The sad thing is all these games werent in coors so take away the whole "well it's just because everyone scores in coors" theory. But before this stretch he was only averaging 2-3 earned runs and this is baseball. He could have a bounce back game so I'm riding the under

      These are two of the my favorite pitchers to watch for the years to come. I really like both of them and have watched them pitch mulitple times this year. Paddack started the season off hot but has since cooled off. He had a good outing against the Giants but I'm not ready to say he's back on track because he got hit hard his four games prior to that. He's still on a extreme pitch count and won't be in past the fifth inning. He struggles against lefties and arizona is coming at him with six tonight. On the other side I like Gallen a lot in this match up. He struggles with consistancy and will walk baters evident by his 10.4% walk rate. It's hard to watch because when Gallen is off, he's fucking off bad. But he has such a high strike out rate and this Pardres lineup is loaded with right handed batters that have no patience at the plate. This is my lock and may be one of my last ones before this season ends and I'm pounding the Dbacks -140 F5 tonight. Good luck

        this is a great dog spot. Giolito was once considered the front runner for the Cy young but had some mid season skids that set him back. Teheran has his moments but this guy can get rocked and i've seen this sox team come alive. I'm taking the plus odds

          Darvish has pitched so well in the second half and while he did get roughed up last game, it was really just one bad inning. Take away that inning and his stats for the 2nd half of this season put his on top of all pitchers in the league. Gio is a guy who loves painting the corners and this always leads to high pitch counts and could lead to a lot of walks. The cubs have four guys in their lineup that are considered high walk rate and this isn't a game where you want to give away free passes because they cubs will make you pay. Between Bryant and Baez who smash left handed pitching your going to be holding your breath every time those guys are up to bat and that last thing you want is runners on base when they go up. I think the cubs smash here

            I love this pick and would have smashed the cubs with you but Darvish just got scratched for tyler chatwood. Looks like an over spot now $100 CHC -170 & $100 Over 8.5

          I love the rockies at home today. Senzatela isn't the greatest but he knows how to pitch in coors which can't be said about Dario who's making his first appearance to the land where pitcher stats die. So good luck to him

            I actually like the over here. Just like yesterday, it just takes one team to get hot and lester has been horrible as of late. Degrom is a stud but he will have a bad game from time to time so you can't really rule out runs from the cubs. 7 is just too low here

              we all know that Ryu is a top Cy young canidate so we can limit our expectations on the Dbacks here. On the other side, Kelly has been pitching well and this may be one of those "pitch to your competition" games adn I don't like the Dodgers to score ten. I like the under

                This feels like a trap because Paddack is hands down a better pitcher than Rodriquez. Paddacks recent form is scary but he's faced the Giants twice this year and went five innings both times (he was on a pitch count and still kind of is) and gave up 3 and 1 earned runs in those starts. But Rodriguez is coming of an ass kicking of his own in his last game so I'll take the padres here hands down. I just can't get over this line and don't know what Im missing

                  Both these pitchers have ground ball tendencies and while they aren't hte best, they are at least serviceable and I can't get behind these offense's right now. I like the under

                    Tonight is a horrible day for fantasy and if you're playing on any of the DFS sites expect to see Gray really high owned. Pablo Lopez isn't that bad adn I know we always assume that the marlins are trash and are going to lose but this game has a total of 7.5 which is really rare today. I actaully like the marlins +1.5 today and think they may pull it off because why not! Everyone is on the reds and it's not like htey are that great and they are missing their top bats (votto and dietrich) and with puig missing in the middle of the lineup this team isn't that great. The marlins are still pros so don't just auto fade them

                      I'm going to take the over here because Wainwright is known for two things, having better splits at home and better splits against righties. Well he's on the road in a hitters park and he's facing a team with Yelich grandal, Thames, Moustakuas and even Grisham. These are all lefties who've been crushing as of late. Then Gio is a pitcher that trying to paint the corners and this leads to high pitch counts and a lot of walks. his walk rate in his last two is at 19% which is just insane. The cards have come alive and we have two pitchers that let guys get on base too easy. I'll take the over here because this isn't a game where you want to give free passes

                        me too, but Gio is just destined to blow up so I'm thinking maybe the over?

                          I've been targeting left handed pitchers against the brewers for a while now and it's been pretty profitable. I feel like all of the brewers have some amazing bats but they are all lefties and Ray has dominated lefties. I can't stand Davies and his soft contact and think the dbacks can get to him and I love the value of hte rays

                            Eflin hasn't thrown more than 75 pitches in almost 40 days. He's not on a pitch count either, he's just in trouble all the time to the point they are better off playing someone else. THen you have Yamamoto who has a hard contact rate of 47% and a 10% walk rate in his MLB sample size. Not sure if you saw yesterdays game but these teams put up 1000 runs and I think they will get to double digits again

                              I don't see how this is any different than yesterdays match where the Nats rolled the cubs so why not take the value on the Nats. Quintana and lester are very simular and ross is a little better than Sanchez. So I like the value
