We have had much better days than our picks on Friday April 27th.
The New York Yankees -1.5, in hindsight may have been too aggressive, but I feel it was still a good selection based on value. The Yankees won 4-3 in extra innings, but failed to win by more than one run, which gave us a loss.
The “Get Strong Select Play” last night was the Oakland A’s at Houston Astros UNDER 8.5 or UNDER 9 runs. Those who made the selection at 9 earned a push, in the 8-1 win, but since I originally set the pick at UNDER 8.5, and personally locked in at 8.5 it was another loss. If you would have told me before the game that the Astros would only score one run, I would have told you we would have covered the UNDER easy. But Dallas Keuchel tied his career high giving up three home runs….and that’s baseball.
Despite the two losses we are still 24-15 on the season.
Here is the free play for today.
Tampa Bay Rays at Boston Red Sox 4:05 pm EST
Projected Starters: Rays: Yonny Chirinos (1-2 2.92 ERA) Red Sox: David Price (2-2, 2.93 ERA)
David Price has a 2.93 ERA so far on the season, which includes two very strong starts against the Rays. In his starts against Tampa Bay this season, Price has pitched a total of 14 innings allowing seven hits and zero runs.
Rays projected stater Yonny Chirinos has faced the Red Sox twice this season, once as a starter and once in relief. Chirinos has not allowed a run in the nine innings he has pitched against the Red Sox.
The Under is 5-3 in the Red Sox versus Rays games so far this season. I think the total of 9 is too high.
