I will keep a running tally of my baseball plays here. Please chime in and post your plays here too and see if we can make some money early!
Play #1 of 2012!
UNDER 7 (-120) Philly/Pittsburgh Halladay/Bedard...Said I was going to bet Philly unders regularly early and no better spot to do it when DOC is on the mound. I am starting off with a **2 unit play** on this one as we saw last night the bats are a little slow early on for teams.
1 unit plays--
Cubs +140 over Washington
Braves -105 over NY Mets
Under 7 -115, bsoton/Detroit
OVER 6 WASHINGTON/CHICAGO CUBS
6 is the O/U @ Wrigley. As usual, the wind factor is really biased with the totals at Wrigley. Granted Strasburg is on the mound, they are going to have him on a pitch count and I do not expect him to even throw more than 6 innings. The pitchers are not really conditioned to go long early in the season.
Anyway, back to the point at hand:
Only 5 times in the last 3 years has the total at Wrigley been under 7! The total went over in 4 of the 5. 3 of the 4 overs went over by at least 2.5 runs.

The Cubs do suck...guy on 3rd no outs in the bottom of the 9th and the pinch runner gte thorwn out at home. Typical cubs baseball as they always lack fundenmentals no matter who the manager or GM is. Glad I am a cards fan!
Brewers -125 over Cards--The ULTIMATE revenge game! ***3 unit play***Cards knocked Brewers out of the playoffs last year in this field. Brewers have had this game circled since last October! Opening day, revenge, good pitcher in Gallardi = Brew crew win.
If you think the Cubs suck, you haven't seen Houston in while! The Astros team is the equivalent of a mediocre Triple A team.
No kidding, plus the Nats didn't score with runners on 2nd and 3rd 1 out in first and left the bags loaded in the 3rd! Oh well, there will be another day!
I just cannot believe there was little scoring and hitting yesterday, and it wasn't because the weather sucked. 1-0 Philly (great call Woodie), 1-0 Mets.
I think the juice is out of the offensive players. Thank god they didn't raise the mound a few years ago with all the scoring, there would be total domination by all the great pitchers!
Under 6.5 Philly-Pitts
San Diego +
mil and Chicago 2 units.

OVER 9 Colorado/Houston
A combination of old and bad. Moyer old, 4.00 ERA, Lucas Harrell was horrible with the White Sox, gives up a walk every 2 innings. His stuff is hit able and that's a bad combination for a team that hits for average.
Will update my record later...
UNDER 7 Mia/Philly (even)
OVER 9.5 Boston./Toronto (-110)
Rockies/Angels (+125 on the parlay)
Seattle +1.5 (-105) over Texas...The Screw "YU" play of the day.
5-5 going into today, down $50 using $100 unit as guideline.
5-6 after the under lose in the philly game early....-$150.
Toronto -120 over Boston
I forgot how fun it is to bet baseball when closers can't close. Ugh Toronto!!
Bad day today!!
Braves suck too.
Stumbled a bit lately....Trying one more day and may break for a bit.
I feel I have a good handle but playing the losers and leaving the other leans off my card!
Reds -110 over STL...Cards batrs are hot but feel Lohse won't be as great tonight as he was in Miami so basically betting against him. Leake is OK, but think the Reds bats will heat up tonight. Lean on the over too.
OVER 9.5 bosox/Toronto....Bats were quiet but Bard/Drabeck matchup can make the score rise quickly as both has control issues.
Braves -180 over Houston....This is the max I will ever lay but have to go back to ATL tonight to chalk up their first in. Tommy Hanson on the mound and he can dominate. Weiland for Houston is a AA pitcher at best. Chipper is back tonight too. I am playing this small but parlayig in with the Chicago Bulls ML too.
Under 6 philly/Miami
Seattle +1.5 (-105)
2-1 on wednesday---
Pirates +125 over LA Dodgers
D'backs -130 over Padres
Philly/Miami UNDER 8
Took a little break--
Twins +165 over Yanks
Royals +165 over Tigers
Padres +117 over Rockies
A's +165 over Angels...note that Angels played in NY last night and had to travel corss country to play tonight. JET LAG!
Pirates +117 over Dbags
6-3 onbmy last few posted plays brings me back to about even so far this year. Big doggy night tonight.
2-3 last night, but only -30 or so with the Twins hitting as large dogs.
Braves -110 over Mets
