Minnesota Twins at Boston Red Sox. Line: Twins +185; Red Sox -200. 7:10 PM ET (Game 961-962)
It's no surprise that the Red Sox were swept in Texas. Their hot start was pretty unrealistic, and they're bound to regress to the norm. Considering they have no available bullpen tonight, the Twins at +185 looks like a decent deal. This line should probably be -170/+160.
I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.
Chicago White Sox at Texas Rangers. Line: White Sox +105; Rangers -115. 8:05 PM ET (Game 923-924)
The NFL Draft is over, so I'm now ready to lose money betting baseball. The Rangers look like a solid play today, as my projected line for them was -125. Texas has been the hotter team, while Chris Sale has not pitched as well on the road.
@billsfan1234 I do agree that Howard is a HOF talent but I don't see him as a good fit for the Bills at this time. They still have Clay, a talented TE, and Taylor does not show a desire to throw the ball down the seam into tight coverage. The Bills effectively have nothing at WR, especially if you consider Watkins is likely out 4-6 games. So I think Williams is a better pick especially considering that they would have to move up to get Howard. They done that a few times in recent history with less than spectacular results. Plus there are other TE's in this draft that can help them. None like Howard of course but you don't build a franchise off a TE.
