Fubon lost 9-5 to Uni Wednesday morning and therefore didn't cover their 1.5 run give. Fubon is now 3-4. Uni is 3-5. In my other loss, Rakuten went to 6-0 with an extra inning 3-2 win over 2-5 Chinatrust. As they did not total 11 runs or more, I fell to 8-6.

Thursday morning at 6:35 am EDT, the Rakuten Monkeys again play at the Chinatrust Brothers:

Moneyline: Rakuten -295, Chinatrust +210

Run line: Rakuten -2.5 -108, Chinatrust +2.5 -121

Total runs: Over 10.5 +102, Under 10.5 -134

Pick: At +210, the oddsmakers are begging folks to bet on the Brothers. And eventually the Monkeys are going to lose (although that Futures bet for them to win the title at +115 is looking mighty tasty), but will it be Thursday morning? The Monkeys have owned the Brothers going back to last October so my head says I've got to stick with them. But I'm not taking -295 and winning by 3 runs is a lot even though many of their head-to-heads have been lopsided, so the bet remains over 10.5 runs.
