Betting on baseball is so easy its unbelievable. No wonder Pete Rose couldn’t resist. Its like somebody giving you cash for being able to read or something. I killed it yesterday. Cubs had lost 8 in a row. Their losing streak had no end in sight, except I saw it from a mile away. Cubs were big winners. For kicks I gave the citizens the Brewers win and the over…win and win. The day before I gave you the road dog Red Sox to win 2 of 3 games on the series bet…and that cashed in too. Just picking winners like its my job, good thing it is. I picked the Miami Heat in my NBA Lock of the Century, and I am pretty much hoping I lose that one so I am making up for it with baseball.
Seattle Mariners +168 @ Detroit Tigers -188
This one isn’t exactly brain surgery. Terrible Mariners team on the road taking on one of the most dominant pitchers in the game. Verlander will probably have double-digit strike outs and breeze to a win. The line isn’t the most attractive, but a win is a win is a win. Also, I have never heard of this Fister guy pitching for Seattle. One of my gambling rules is that if I have never heard of you, it means that you suck. Tigers roll.
Oakland A’s even @ Chicago White Sox -110
Honestly, the only game I really love on the board is the Tigers game, but you can’t win if you don’t play and I am on fire right now. Playing with house money. Give me the White Sox at home with Buerhle pitching. Seems like a solid pick. Decent moneyline for the favorite at home. Good enough for me. I am just going to keep racking up wins.

The NHL and the NBA are almost over and if I am going to take down all of Costa Rica with my gambling picks then I am going to have to rely on a different weapon in my arsenal. Baseball season is now upon and Chicago unfortunately will give up two locks today.
Houston Astros +125 @ Chicago Cubs -135
Look, I know the Astros are terrible. One of the worst teams in the league, and full disclosure…I have never heard of this guy they have pitching today. However, I have heard of the guy the Cubs are sending out to the bump today. Rodrigo Lopez. The guy is awful. They just signed him off the street. This is a case of going with the devil you don’t know instead of the devil you know. The Cubs also won yesterday, I don’t think they have put together back to back wins all year. I am taking the road underdog.
Chicago White Sox +170 @ Boston Red Sox -200
The White Sox are just plain awful. Ozzie Guillen seems more crazy than normal lately. The Red Sox may be a little fatigued since they played a double-header yesterday, but they are throwing Jon Lester out there today. Lester is a dominant lefty and the White Sox are going to get shut down. The Red Sox are who we thought they were when they signed Carl Crawford and Adrian Gonzalez in the offseason. If the White Sox are going to win a game in this series, it could be today…but they wont and that’s why it’s a lock of the century.
So there you have it Costa Rica. No NBA, no NHL, no problem.
