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.
