Bet CPBL Saturday Baseball: Rakuten, off a rare loss, hosts Chinatrust; Fubon, in search of a win, is at hot-hitting Uni
(All lines from )
With Fubon ace Henry Sosa scheduled to pitch against Uni Friday morning, Under 11.5 runs looked good to me. And for the second night in a row, Uni scored 12 runs in the first five innings. In the Rakuten-Chinatrust game, I liked the Over at 9.5 runs. Rakuten led 3-2 going into the seventh, so this looked like another potential L, but then the Brothers put up a 4 spot and 2 in the ninth and the Monkeys scored 5 in the ninth to force a tie, which they lost 10-8 in extras. but 18 is over 9.5 so that was a win and I'm now 16-13.
Saturday morning at 5:05 am EDT, Chinatrust is at Rakuten and Fubon plays at Uni.
Moneyline: Rakuten -210, Chinatrust +155
Run line: Rakuten -1.5 -103, Chinatrust +1.5 -127
Total runs: Over 10.5 -129, Under 10.5 +100
Pick: With two of the league's top starters going, this should be a pitcher's duel, until the bullpens come in and batting practice bursts out. Still, I'm taking the Under.
Moneyline: Fubon +163, Uni-Lions -220
Run line: Fubon +1.5 -115, Uni-Lions -1.5 -113
Total runs: Over 13.5 -127, Under 13.5 -103
Pick: Fubon has been struggling mightily and Uni has been pounding the ball. But it's baseball, Suzyn, so at +163 I'm taking Fubon on the moneyline.
