Key Angle: It's important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant.
- Lop-sided pitching mismatch. Dan Straily is 0-1 with a 19.79 ERA and 3.21 WHIP. He’s being forced into action out of necessity for the Orioles. Boston’s Hector Velazquez is 0-0 with a 2.79 ERA , most recently going three scoreless innings in relief vs. the hard-hitting Diamondbacks last weekend.
- Baltimore is 44-68 (-12.5 units) the L2 years in all day games (including only 3-5 this season).
- Boston is still 45-13 (+19 units) the L2 years as a home favorite in the -175 to -250 range.
The verdict: I’m laying the 1.5 runs for the near pick em price and expecting a blowout of epic proportions!
