Today's Pick

Chicago AL +150 at Cleveland

First off, sorry for the delay in articles the past week. Been a little rough for me in real life things. I don’t get paid for these articles, so luckily I’m not obligated to write them. The White Sox have the better pitcher going tonight so despite the team’s struggles, it is hard to pass up this big of a line

Bet 0.4 units on Chicago AL to win 0.6 units

Previous Pick

Miami +100 vs San Francisco

The Marlins have hit Matt Moore pretty consistently through the years, while Tom Koehler has been really good the last two months. Small wager on the home team here.

Bet 0.5 units on Miami to win 0.5 units-Correct!

What are the Numbers About Again?

Our system and suggestions are based on a numerical system. The players are listed in order of expected number of points I project for this player. This all comes from a weighted system that includes the following information:

-- Batter vs pitcher numbers
-- Results from the last seven games for each batter
-- Batter season history vs left-handed or right-handed pitcher
-- Batter season history home or away

I will do my best to rank each position from top to bottom to show my top choice of the night. It will not always be the top projected amount. Also, any player with stars after his name is someone you need to check the lineups for to make sure they are in because they are platoon players.

Today's Lineup

Full slate of games tonight. Likely rain only in Texas, of all places. Pretty good amount of options at each position so take any of our suggestions as you see fit.
