Monday was a tough day in MLB but a great day in the NBA!
We went 2-0 in our NBA picks with the Warriors -9.5 and the OVER 215.5 in the 76ers-Heat game. However in baseball we were 0-2.
We took a chance with the underdog Texas Rangers who lost 8-4. Then in what looked to be a win, we saw the New York Mets head into the 8th inning with a 6-1 lead, only to allow six runs in that inning on their way to an 8-6 loss to the Washington Nationals. This drops our record to 11-10 on the season in Major League Baseball.
The show goes on today. Due to some postponed games and late lines, there is a good chance that we will be playing at least one more game later today.
Miami Marlins at New York Yankees 6:35pm EST
Projected Starters: Marlin Garcia (0-0, 1.13) at Yankees: Tanka (2-1, 5.19 ERA
50/50 would I pick the Marlins? No. But with these odds do I think they have a better chance then the value indicates? Absolutely.
Jarlin Garcia comes in with a 1.13 ERA average on this season. This includes pitching six innings of no hit baseball against the Mets and six innings of one hit ball against the Cubs.
Make sure to list Jarlin Garcia as the starting pitcher for the Marlins when making this pick. There is positive value here even if the Marlins lose by a run.
