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 pick of J. Allen by the 49ers is just not going to happen. The Niners need a nose tackle, not another first round 3-4 DE. With their cap space they are more likely to make a play for Dontari Poe, and use the # 2 pick for a QB. I hate to suggest that they will trade back, because that is difficult to do. The Niners are in such a sad state that they could upgrade at virtually any position with multiple picks in the first and second rounds.
