    Sunday August 13 - plays #1 & 2
    Over 7.5 +100 CLE@ TB for 1 unit to win 1
    Over 3 -105 TB team total for 1.05 units to win 1

    Two words Evan Longoria. Either Kluber throws a no-hitter (entirely possible) or this game reaches 8 runs.

    DETROIT +115
    1 unit to win 1.15

    Ervin eyeballing his own number this year, hopes a regression isn't coming. Detroit scored 10 runs to begin this homestand, then 5, then 4, then 12 yesterday. Like their chances here to put up a crooked number before boarding a plane to Texas.

    Sunday August 13 - play #4
    Under 8.5 -110 ATL@STL
    1.10 unit to win 1

    Under is 5-2 in Braves last 7 games following a loss.
    Under is 5-2-1 in Braves last 8 games vs. a right-handed starter.
    **of the 2 Overs shown in the above trends, one just happened yesterday.


    Under is 9-0-2 in Umpire - Barrett last 11 games behind home plate.


    There are plenty of trends which point to an Over in this game on the other hand, but Dickey is working on extended 8 days rest since his last start so I hope him to be on his game with the knuckler. I don't like Atlanta's lineup. But the game could be right near the 8.5 total so if you are risk-adverse don't consider this a sure bet at all. Peace and love peace and love.

    Let's not forgot Phillies master plan from a Standings standpoint is to finish season with the worst record. They won yesterday and have the Giants and White Sox nipping at their lowly heels on the bad side. Mets prospects will be happy to oblige.

    Should have hit. Braves had about 10 ground ball singles accounting for several of their runs. Then the meaningless 9th inning run that beat us was scored on a tapper back to pitcher where he could have thrown guy out at home by a mile but instead tries to turn 2 which he had no fukkin chance of accomplishing given how softly the ball was hit.

    Not worried about a loss, but there were better bets on the board today. Felt this total would be near the number so never should have played it. What did I start this thread saying, DISCIPLINE winners. Ugh...re-working for upcoming stretch run to the pennant.

    Monday August 14
    New/Different approach:
    Taking another fork in the road, with more variable unit amounts per game, depending on the confidence factor and overall strategy.

    Over 9 -123 HOU@ARIZ for 2.46 unit to win 2
    OAKLAND -110 for 2.20 unit to win 2
    Under 9 -110 BALT@SEA for 1.10 unit to win 1
    SEATTLE +110 for 1 unit to win 1.1
    Under 8 -110 PHI@SD for 5.50 units to win 5

    Harper out, funky lineup for the Nats. Angels been on a roll. They might just be meeting the Nats at the right time. Angels kinda play like NL style game. Trout vs non-Harper, he probably will have some fans from New Jersey in the seats.

    Cleveland has a streak of unders in recent 6 games, with yesterday's total of 10 being a push at most shops. Bartolo is going to give some runs up, not sure if Salazar will. I don't like the moneyline price for Indians, and their divisional opponent has played them tough in the past. Everyone will be hard for Encarnacion with his 2-homers yesterday, but could be a let-down today from him.

    Basically a chase play for me, losing 5.5 units on the same under 8 pick yesterday, attempt to stick with it and get back half. Phillies starter Mark Leiter looked really good on Aug.10 when he was brought in for long relief against the Mets, so shouldn't he be able to do the same to the Padres? Yeah what could go wrong? Not sure I love this play in all honesty, but I committed to play it for this amount if yesterday's Under lost, which it did.

    Just a disaster, nothing going right. When I chase a team two days in a row it loses twice. When I don't chase the second day it wins. Yesterday's game looked like a bad beat although Pittsburgh did not have it locked up with a 1-run lead going to the bottom of the 8th, the relief pitcher gives up a 2-run bomb to Milwaukee for the go ahead and final winning runs of the game. Will take a break/slower approach and perhaps check-in with a spot play from time to time...it appears I've had better results on the days where I can more fully analyze the games of interest.

    Terrible streak, I trend to go streaky with my picks but this was awful and embarrassing all the more to start posting them new on the forum. When my winning percentage is lower than the Phillies/White Sox, its time to call it a day until I find a beatable game....I mean coulda flipped a coin on all games and done better than this!

    In case anyone's looking for a fade tonight, my leans would be Cleveland and Houston to win.
    Good luck

    Staying consistent with record keeping, each parlay counts as a single Win or Loss. I've gone 2-1 with parlays in this thread for net +4.10 units.

    Looking at today's card leaning Pirates and White Sox but still deciding if either dumpster fires are worth a play today.

    And for those of you interested Hockey is my second best sport, so I will have a separate thread for it along with NFL

    Alt Run lines are commonly available. Dog team must win by 2-run or more.

    Without time to share all logic of these two plays, I do believe it will be possible to split at worst, which will net profit.
