    Porcello -240? The f#*k??

    How could Porcello be -240 over Axelrod tonight? -240? I realize the Tigers are home, and Chisox suck....but still, -240? For christs sake....these Sox beat up on Verlander last night.

    Porcello has certainly been a total gas can at times. I understand him being chalk, but why so high? These 2 guys have a similar record, and sport basically identical ERA's.

    What gives?

    Axelrod has to be a decent play here, right?

    Makes no sense, I see -165 at most. I don't make lines though.

    Even if it isn't fixed, sometimes we have to bet on mlb as if it is fixed to make our profits consistent.

    Yea I'll take DET RL again we should get a better result. quintana is on a good one and held det down. axelrod didnt even make it out of the 2nd inning in last start. miggy will have him scared to throw strikes.

    basically agree, and I've been a dedicated wsox fader all year long

    you could argue that there never should be a -240 fave in mlb, but if there should be, you better have fukin wainright or fernando valenzuela or some ****a like that going

    not rick porcello

    i was all geared up to fade the wsox again in this series, but seeing -250 last night, i passed

    couldnt bring myself to bet on the wsox full game last night, but did make them my pick in my sheet

    but, then i did bet them on a 2h line, when they were +240 after 5 and they were just down 1-0.

    That's not +240 to win the game, that was +240 just to win the 2h, so you even got a push if they lost the game by 1

    ridic line, had to bet it small, cashed

    the thing with these lines, where you bet a huge dog that you think should be a huge dog, just not quite as huge as they are, is to bet them small

    Amen to that. Gift from the gods. Cain has been terrible lately and had a feeling Wheeler would stick it to the team that traded him. Didn't put a ton on it but happy nonetheless.

    Tiger's bullpen and how soon the Sox can get there decides this game.

    I tend to see it hard for baseball teams to win back to back, but that may just be me. Just fade the garbage teams...like the Marlins, every single game.
