ATB Free Friday Playoff Round Robin
Freaky Friday is upon us! It’s the first full Friday of the MLB 2018 Playoffs with four games on the schedule, and I’m going to drop another Round Robin on you. We’re making a 4-team round robin bet with 6 two-team parlays at $25/ for a total bet of $150. All odds have not been released for these games as yet, so exact payout is unknown.
Friday will feature a couple Game 1’s as the ALDS’ get started in Houston and a couple Game 2’s with the NLDS getting started on Thursday.
In the American League, the Astros (J Verlander) host the Indians (C Kluber) at 2:05 PM ET and the Red Sox (C Sale) play the Yankees (TBD) at 7:32 PM ET at Fenway. The Brewers (J Chacin) play host to the Rockies at 4:15 PM ET with the Dodgers (C Kershaw) and Braves (A Sanchez) closing out the day in LA starting at 9:37 PM ET.
This is lining up to be one of the best MLB playoffs that we have seen in years, and maybe one that was heavily predicted when the season started back in March. Take a look at the futures odds to win the World Series and lay some money on the least favored, because there is value to be had in most teams.
In the 1st game, watch for Kluber to go beast mode. This series will go the full 5 games, but I am taking the upset and going with Cleveland moneyline (+130). After coming through at season’s end, winning the Central and getting the #1 seed in the NL, expect the Brewers offense to come out strong, no matter who is pitching for the Rockies, because I doubt it’s their ace Kyle Freeland again. Milwaukee ML.
I’m predicting the Yankees will start JA Happ against Sale and the Sox, and even though I think Happ is a very good pitcher, Sale is a great one. Add the Fenway atmosphere, and I’m taking Boston ML (-162). Last but certainly not least is Dodgers v. Braves at Dodger Stadium. I got one word … Kershaw. Dodgers moneyline.

I know what you are probably thinking. Wait a minute, why is he giving me another hockey game prediction? Isn’t he best at basketball? The answer is yes, but I simply give you hockey predictions when I feel strongly one way or the other. So that’s the thing, you know that if I’m writing a Read More…
I was tempted to bet the OVER in today’s NBA All-Star game, but at 312, I’ll stick to the NHL. There are 6 games on the NHL schedule today, with a couple big games that might have meaning come April when the final playoff seedings are out. I’m taking a side in the matchup in Read More…
The Nevada Wolf Pack are no longer looking for revenge against Wyoming, this team has been on the mountain top, down in the valley with a close one here and there and tonight’s game will not be close. It may be cold in Laramie, but inside that gym is the hot shooting from 6-7 forward, Read More…
