    That Philly game probably not being played. Also you trust Lindblom despite not playing since 2017?

    More or less, yes. But I do also bet faves and totals, just not as many as dogs.

    He started a game this year, he struck out 5 in 3.2 innings before leaving with back cramps (reportedly fine now), I have both him and Gio slightly below average and bullpens are close, I end up with White Sox 51% (-104).

    Just like any other sport, you buck the trend when the lines over-adjust, you follow the trend when books are a tad slow to adjust. PRICE is all that matters really.

    I have Giants as a Bullpen Day and not big on Freeland at around 10% below average. I actually have a HUGE difference here at Colorado only 54% (-127), which I usually hate, but I felt better about it when I saw Giants take some money.

    In fact, Colorado is now -157 at 5 Dimes, so game is almost scalpable. Not that I ever do that, but it is a great position to be in long term.
