7.5 does seem pretty low. I'm close to putting a pretty big bet down...

There's a ton of misconceptions about sports betting to me, one being that "taking (big favorites) will cause you to go broke automatically". Simply not true. It's about value to me, and if I think a line should be -280 and it's only -200, I'm going to take the 80 cents of value each and every time. From betting other sports like tennis and soccer you see this much more frequently than baseball, but just because it's big, doesn't mean you always have to stay away.

Not sure if you guys have twitter, but there are a ton of great minds and cappers on there if you look hard enough.


Care to share some handles if that's not against the rules here?

I'd still do it again. Tons of early chances blown. Phils had 8 baserunners in the first 4 innings and with the Phils' pen I usually expect a few extra runs there. On to the next one.

I'm not sure about the rules of that as far as twitter goes but you can PM me I suppose and I'll give you some whose opinion I value tons and aren't touts.

Ugh I thought the same, but I was nervous about the Sox scoring runs for him so I played the under instead.

any KC SP besides Davis and I would have just gone under, good idea. tough luck.how bad is W Sox "O" 1-0 to Wade Davis
Liriano has been so good for so long lets see if STL & Pitt can't score more than 7 Monday night with a favorable light wind blowing out. These offenses are better than what they've been lately

Pirates did their part but Liriano was great again. probly deserved to win last 1 and lose this 1 but I'll take it. decent over ump in Atl Tuesday lets go "over 8" there. 3 wins and a loss so far

Braves game was scoring right from the get go, I like winning games where I feel I really had the right side. Extra shot of confidence or something
Wed pick under Mets & Mia again. good under ump. 2 SP coming off terrific starts tho neither is a household name. under 7 1/2
