Clawing my way back thanks to the Royals and Rockies. Those run totals are legit everyday plays.
Quick note on the Stanley Cup, I'll be on the Preds tonight. 7 game series, home team up 2-0, game 3 always goes to the other side.
Let's get to it:
DBacks/Marlins Over 8.5 (-110) -- These two offenses are hot, neither pitcher is known for run prevention. Should be a fun game.
Cardinals ML (+150) -- Cards HATE losing to the Cubs and they lost a tough one yesterday. They'll bounce back today and this is a nice line because of Lester.
Rockies/Padres Over 8 (-105) -- Death, Taxes and the Rockies over. It's astonishing this line isn't 2 runs higher.
Royals/Indians Under 8.5 (-105) -- Death, taxes and the Royals over. Great price, too!
Tigers -1.5 (+140) -- I like the Tigers' offense today. Day game, at home, White Sox stink, weather's heating up. Lot to like here, plus Zimmerman is due for a quality start.
Nationals ML (-110) -- Been riding this all weekend. Nats are just better than Oakland.
Warrions Sweep & Jason Day Updates --Day made the cut but Jason Dufner is running away with it. Kind of hope he wins, he needs some positivity after his smokebomb wife left him for Tiger or something.
That's it, good luck, let's goooooooooo!

Man, o man, did I take a bath yesterday. Cavs just crapping themselves. Had their over on everything (missed first half thanks to a brick at the buzzer by Kyle Korver), Lebron's a bitch, Kyrie disappeared and I'm an idiot for not just loading on Durant & the Warriors.
Small slate today, pretty much all baseball plus a future on the Finals. Let's get to it:
Rockies/Padres Over 7.5 (-115) -- Death, Taxes and the Rockies Over. 7.5 again in San Diego!!!!
Yankees ML (-120) -- Yanks should beat up Frankie Liriano in his return from the DL. Could be a high scoring affair, might hop on the over, as well.
Red Sox ML (-130) -- Sox should bounce back in Baltimore tonight behind Porcello, although this Asher kid's pitched pretty well. That ends today.
Indians/Royals Under 9 (-120) -- Death, taxes and the Royals under. They've actually been trending over during the last week or so. But I refuse to hop off this wagon.
Nationals ML (-135) -- Strasburg vs Triggs could be low scoring, but the Nats are just better. And Triggs is due for a shellacking.
Warriors Sweep NBA Finals (+600) -- Got on this at halftime last night. Honestly can't believe I got this juicy line. Should've bet more, Golden State is on a mission.
Jason Day wins the Memorial (Update) -- Shot +3 75 yesterday. Brutal.
That's it, happy Friday, good luck, let's goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

8-5 yesterday, ended up adding a few extras to the docket by way of Carlos Martinez and Max Scherzer's strikeout totals. Over, obviously.
Nice little start to this series, total's up to 14-9-2 on the short week.
NBA Finals are finally here, let's get to it:
**Disclaimer** I'll for sure be adding to the Finals slate. Love the over everywhere and am going to take Lebron triple-double plus more player props.. tomorrow I'll have full results and may post an update to this pre-game. If I'm not half in the bag.
Cavs Over 54.5 Team Total in 1st Half (-130) -- This has been hitting all playoffs and is relatively low. Should be a great game, lot of scoring, Cavs being underrated a bit. I don't think they win, but I think they hit this with relative ease.
Brewers/Mets Over 8.5 -- Jake deGrom ripped my heart from my ribcage used it for BP yesterday in a colossal stinker. Today it's Wheeler vs another guy who pitches for the Brewers. Bats heating up, love the over.
Dodgers ML (-120) -- Dodgers won't get swept in StL. Book it.
Indians -1.5 (-105) -- Long awaited return to Kluberica this morning. Btw these weird starts for Cleveland are f'ing with the whole schedule, but I'll never turn my nose up at morning baseball.
Red Sox ML (-130) -- Here's hoping last night's offensive outburst from the O's isn't a sign of things to come against Eddy Rod, who's been great. If so, Sox can slug it out with the best of them & Wade Miley isn't scaring anyone.
Blue Jays Over 4.5 Team Total (-110) -- Jays offense is finally healthy and they're facing CC. Bombs away.
Twins ML (-105) -- Twins have been cold after a hot start but the Angels are and have always been bad.
Rockies/Mariners Over 8.5 (-115) -- Death, taxes and the Rockies over.
Jason Day wins the Memorial -- Love this, he's due and in fine form lately after a tough start to the season personally.
Good luck, let's goooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

6-4-2 yesterday. Not bad! Pushed two point totals.
Good action today. Let's get right to it:
Penguins -1/2 (+115) Reg Only & Penguins -1/2 (+165) 1st Period -- Kind of thinking this is a home team series. Pens seem tough. I don't know anything about hockey. Should be a hell of a game, though.
Cubs Over Team Total 4.5 (-110) -- Yea yea, the Cubs are struggling. But, they have a track record of hammering the ball. Luis Perdomo has a track record of getting hammered.
Phillies/Marlins Over 7.5 (-115) -- Marlins are heating up. No Stanton today, but that doesn't matter. Phillies will scratch a few across in their own right.
Mets -1.5 (+120) -- deGrom all day. Bonus to those who can take his props over any amount of Ks today, too.
Cardinals ML (-120) -- Cards are hot, Martinez on the bump, think he handles the Dodgers.
Nats -1.5 (-110) -- Scherzer vs Matt Cain? Christmas comes early.
Astros ML (-130) -- Interesting matchup here with the Twins. 'Stros bringing up top 100 prospect David Paulino to start on the road. Here's to a pleasant debut.
Rays ML (-130) -- Archer vs a guy with a hyphenated last name. Seriously.
Tigers/Royals Under 9 (-105) -- Death, taxes and the Royals under.
Rockies/Mariners Over 7.5 (-115) -- 7.5!!!!!! Death, taxes and the Rockies over. James Paxton Shmames Paxton.
Good luck, let's gooooooooooooooo!

Been awhile. Not for any good reason, either. Too much time on Twitter, perhaps.
Anyways, I've been kicking around a couple of ideas for the blog that are mostly for my own records/good, but thought, 'what the hell, nobody reads me anyways', so I'm going to start a new series called Daily Bread. It's about gambling. On the reg.
Quick snippits about my picks for the day, a pic to prove it and I'll keep track of how I'm doing unit-wise.
Happy wage- umm.. prognosticating!
Marlins -1.5 (+170) over Phillies -- Easy pickin's here.. Marlins are due for a winning streak and Philly/Vin Velasquez are awful. Just ask my roto ERA/WHIP.
Pirates ML (-115) over DBacks -- Don't look now, but Pittsburgh's heating up and so are the Buccos. Arizona has been great to start the year, but their ancillary players are starting to slow down and the Golden Boy Paulie can only do so much on his own.
Brewers ML (-105) over Mets -- Literally never heard of Mets' starter Tyler Pill, and that's all I need to know about this one.
Brewers/Mets Over 9 (-110) -- See above. Also any pitcher for Milwaukee is ripe to get blasted in his own right.
Cubs/Padres Over 8.5 (-110) -- I've been on these low game totals in San Diego for a couple weeks now. Both pitchers are in the bigs for a cup of coffee and both offenses can be explosive.
Nationals ML (+100) over Giants -- Nats much better than SF even if their star player isn't fist fighting opposing pitchers.
Orioles ML (+125) over Yankees -- Pure value play here. Severino has been good for the Yanks, but he's no world beater and the O's can rake in Camden Yards. Also getting Adam Jones back tonight.
Tigers/Royals Under 9 (-110) -- Death, taxes and the Kansas City under. Plus Verlander tonight, plus bad weather. LOCK.
Astros/Twins Under 9 (-105) -- Mike Fiers isn't great, but this Twins offense is boom or bust and lately it's been more of the latter. Also, Jose Berrios has a great matchup against a tough but K-prone Houston offense. Playing my gut here after the Twins got beat by an 11-run 8th inning last night and thinking this one stays under.
Mariners/Rockies Over 11 (-105) -- Death, taxes and the Rockies over in Coors Field. Or away from Coors Field.
Angels -1.5 (+155) & Angels Over Team Total 4.5 (+105) -- Our homie Big Sexy Bartolo has had a tough start to the year. Even without Mike Trout, I'm banking on a couple home runs and BSB getting generally tagged around the yard tonight.
Good luck, let's gooooooooooooooooooooooo!
