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.
The reason Peppers is a bad fit and it ain't because of his low stats, but because he would not fit Tampa's defense. The bucs had a guy similar to him in Mark Barron who is now with the rams. The 2nd rounder is fine, but the 3rd rounder is also terrible. Brian Hill sucks. Roderick Johnson in the 3rd would be better and Ryan Ramcyzk, Cam Robinson or Budda Baker in the 1st.
