I am going to be as transparent as possible. Wednesday was another losing day at 1-2. The win came with the Braves pulling out a 3-1 12th inning victory over the Mets. We had the Braves at +1.5, too bad we punked out and didn’t go Braves Moneyline at +194.
The over 7.5 for the Yankees-Rays game was looking really good when the Rays took a 4-1 lead in the 2nd inning. Unfortunately there were no more runs scored beyond the second inning, and the Yankees went 0 for 9 with runners in scoring position.
The beginning of this season has been very frustrating, however even if we were currently on a winning streak, the baseball season and sports handicapping is a marathon, not a sprint.

With so many early games today, below I have all of my MLB Picks listed with a very brief explanation.
MLB Picks for April 6, 2017
Kansas City Royals (MONEYLINE +108) at Minnesota Twins
(Royals: Hammel) (Twins: Gibson) 1:10 pm EST
The Twins have won the first two games of the series and now come into the final game of this three game series as favorites. The Twins are 26-52 against American League Central opponents over the last 2 season. I am going with two picks here, the underdog Royals (+108) to get the win and the total of OVER 8 runs.
San Diego Padres (MONEYLINE +205) at Los Angeles Dodgers
(Padres: Weaver) (Dodgers: McCarthy) 3:10 pm EST
With odds of +205, you can make a profit but winning only 33% of your bets. Dodgers starter Brandon McCarthy has only made a total of 13 starts and 63 innings pitched the last two seasons. The Dodgers are +220 favorites, but the Padres have played them tough recently. These teams have split the last 22 games against each other with 11 wins a piece. Give me the Padres +205 MONEYLINE.
