MLB (1 Pick)
FOLLOW THE UNIT INSTRUCTIONS
We're going to be taking it a bit slower than usual the final few weeks of the regular season here. We do this every year. With the expanded rosters and half these teams pretty much eliminated from contention it's a very unpredictable time of year. Once the MLB playoffs hit we'll be firing away just about everyday. Last season we made over 35 Units in the MLB playoffs alone.
It's been back and forth lately but a very successful season nonetheless. Those who have placed every MLPC wager this year are currently up 128.55 Units. At just $100 per Unit that's $12,855. As consistent as we've been all season, this is still sports betting. It's not always a smooth ride despite our success.
8:10PM Eastern: Orioles Team Total Over 4.5 +110 (3 Units)
The Orioles stole one from Houston last night with Cedric Mullins 3 run shot in the Top of the 9th. Baltimore racked up 16 Hits en route to their 8-7 Win. The best part is that it came against Houston's better arms. Houston was leading 5-3 when Verlander was pulled.
Their Closer Ryan Pressley has now allowed 5 Runs in his last 2 appearances. Hector Nerris has thrown 53 pitches in the past 3 days and is likely unavailable or at the very least not 100%. Bryan Abreu wasn't available yesterday after taking a line drive off a forearm and his status is still in doubt for today. That's Houston's big 3 and they're far from a great spot heading into tonight.
The Astros starter Hunter Brown has a 7.2 ERA in his last 9 Home Starts and that's after throwing 5 shutout innings against the terrible Oakland A's team his last time out. The 3 Home starts leading up to that include 6ER over 4.1 IP to SD, 5 Runs (3ER) over 4 IP to NYY, and 6 ER over 2.2 IP vs SEA. He also faced the Orioles in Baltimore on August 10th and they scored 5 Runs across 6IP.
With BAL SP Kyle Gibson's inconsistency and the Orioles bullpen decently taxed we're opting to stay away from the side. Houston gets awfully tough to beat in Houston this time of year. They are just 38-38 at Home this season but usually have one of the best Home Records in baseball. Whether they were cheating or not.
