Best Bet of the Day:
Yankees @ ROYALS Game 1 Over 10

Second best Bet of the Day:
Tigers @ METS Over 9

5-inning game of the day:
Braves @ CARDINALS Under 5

Ridiculous to bet Over 12 game of the day:
Orioles @ ROCKIES Over 12

The Skinny:
I'm back for picking another day of baseball Over/Unders and at the risk of going 0-4 today, I am 9-3 my last three stints. We start with Game 1 of the Yankees-Royals doubleheader, where two rested teams will face off against two starters with a combined ERA Over 10. JA Happ could spin a gem and the Yankee subs could stop hitting but the odds say neither will happen. . . . If Thor couldn't get the Tigers out, it's hard to pin my hopes for a pitching duel on Jason Vargas, 5.92 ERA) vs. Ryan Carpenter (13.00 ERA) so I will expect the pitching to slumber and lose out to the lumber. . . Mike Soroka of the the Braves doesn't give up many runs in any innings. I'd like Dakota Hudson of the Cards to pitch to his 4.40 ERA and this will be fine . . . Picking an Over 12 is silly but this is the Orioles pitching and it is the Rockies hitting, in Coors Field, so I too will swing for the fences.
