    He was fine, six runs in 22.1 innings but the most important thing is he showed no ill effects from the shoulder surgery. He has also always been a fast starter in April. http://www.sportsbookreview.com/mlb-baseball...april-a-24074/ All of that said though, I agree that he is overpriced here.

    Don't trust too much on starting pitchers in early season. They won't go deep. Bullpen will decide if you win or lose in late innings.

    Miami is likely to win here but no value on ML imo. So passing..No need to rush, more games ahead..

    I don't think Vodka was disputing that Johnson is a stud, I think he was more concerned about the after effects of Johnson's injury at this early stage of the year.

    You can't be afraid to lay big numbers in baseball or you will pass up a lot of winners. That being said this is not a game you should bet IMO. It's just too early to really know for sure. Marlins look real attractive at -140 but not at -170 and I wouldn't touch st Louis just because of the plus number until I see lohse pitch a few games.

    Yes Johnson is a stud when healthy, but the Cardinals middle of the order guys Holiday, Berkman and Molina are all hitting at least .300 against him, and all three hit well in the spring. I'm expecting a little higher scoring 6-4 type game. I'm on the over and the Cardinals TTO3.

    I personally have 3 "checks" I go through in order of importance in my opinion when it comes to picking a baseball game and the line is the last and lowest check in picking a winner for me.

    St Louis is too much value. Lohse is a quality pitcher.

    Marlins and over both small, half unit. (Yes I have changed my mind after looking at lopsided numbers)

    Over.

    Lohse is going to regress this year. Last year was an anomaly.

    I went with the Cards ...small. Just to have something on it.

    Truth is: nobody knows how these teams will look tonight or how the pitchers will perform. All speculation.

    That's why it makes moer sense to just take the +165.

    Taking the marlins sums up Brock's approach to gambling perfectly.

    Boston ML and here is why.....

    With the exception of last year, Justin V is a slow starting pitcher at the beginning of the season. Coupled with the facts of a Boston team looking to get a decent start after the blowups of last year, I think its a decent price at +129. By no means a lock, but IMO a coin flip...

    Classified information.

    However, he did pull a positive amount. It wasn't a ton of cash.
