Bet CPBL Sunday Baseball: Rakuten and Chinatrust, and Fubon and Uni all play series rubber games – can anyone get an out?
(All lines from )
Can't anyone get anyone out in this league? Since April 30, the five games played have totaled 97 runs – nearly 20 per contest. Saturday morning my Rakuten-Chinatrust pitchers' duel went down in flames and I can't even blame the bullpens – the game was 8-5 after three innings. Chinatrust scored five in the ninth to make it closer but still lost 16-11. In my other pick I took struggling Fubon on the +163 moneyline and they pounded Uni 11-2. So that's another split with a marginal profit and I'm now 17-14.
Sunday morning at 5:05 am EDT, Chinatrust is at Rakuten and Fubon plays at Uni.
Moneyline: Rakuten -225, Chinatrust +170
Run line: Rakuten -1.5 -120, Chinatrust +1.5 -109
Total runs: Over 14.5 -112, Under 14.5 -118
Pick: By June are we going to see Total Run lines over 20? Tonight's two starters each have ERAs over 5 so the hitting should continue. After 13 games Rakuten is already 5 up in the loss column so I'm taking Rakuten -1.5 runs.
Moneyline: Fubon -162, Uni-Lions +123
Run line: Fubon -1.5 -110, Uni-Lions +1.5 -120
Total runs: Over 13.5 -127, Under 13.5 -103
Pick: Thinking one game this weekend has to have a modicum of pitching I'm taking the Under.
