Minnesota Twins at Boston Red Sox. Line: Twins +185; Red Sox -200. 7:10 PM ET (Game 961-962)
It's no surprise that the Red Sox were swept in Texas. Their hot start was pretty unrealistic, and they're bound to regress to the norm. Considering they have no available bullpen tonight, the Twins at +185 looks like a decent deal. This line should probably be -170/+160.
I may post another pick later. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.
Chicago White Sox at Texas Rangers. Line: White Sox +105; Rangers -115. 8:05 PM ET (Game 923-924)
The NFL Draft is over, so I'm now ready to lose money betting baseball. The Rangers look like a solid play today, as my projected line for them was -125. Texas has been the hotter team, while Chris Sale has not pitched as well on the road.
Walter your inability to bet the Patriots all year with Brady on the team is inexplicable. Yes, since Brady came back from suspension, you bet the Patriots 0 times, even though they covered as decent and often huge favorites. Why? Why are you more afraid than Goodell is to show up at Foxborough to bet on a great team to beat inferior oponents by a large margin? You lost out on a lot of money. As for the Patriots defense who will be "overwhelmed" by Pittsburgh hahaha, the Patriots defense has stepped up when it needed to. Logan Ryan who is not even the best DB let alone CB on the team just had a dominant game covering one of the best wide receivers in the league. And you're going to say that Brady can't go stride for stride against Big Ben who, with his 0 TD performance last Sunday, once again proved that he has turned into an awful road playoff QB? You know what 0 TDs will win you in the AFC Championship game? I don't believe that betting on Pitt getting 6 points is a bad decision - seeing as I may do the same. But to predict the Patriots to straight up lose is laughable. The advantage they have on defense and coaching is pretty big and they may even be even offensively solely because Brady has been using Edelman more and more and Dion Lewis's return has shown to be very important.
