Todays card for me

DET -125 2.0X
SEA +123 1.0X
HOU +135 1.0X

My thoughts on each:

Tough to go against Scherzer as dominate he's been at times this season, plus he's thriving on the road.

King Felix with that line?? I'll take it.

Hernandez sucks, and sucks on the road this year. Bud Norris has been surprisingly decent this year and at home has been a little lucky but still good.

I don't think it's a bad pick. But I would definitely rather have HOU +125 on the runline than +135 on the money line.

I don't think anyone would prefer +135 on the money line than +125 on the runline, did you mean -125?

Requested a payout last night on Bovada. I've really liked them, now we will just wait and see how long it takes to get a check.

I want to say that mine was 2 weeks. That was a long time ago, so no I'm not 100% sure. Keep us updated.

Also the dodgers moneyline today is +115 (which of course I took big surprise).

I'm taking Seattle Mariners +134. I think with iwakuma on the mound the odds run about 50-50 so to get an extra +34 it makes it worth it to me
