Pick Details

(911) Seattle vs. Boston (912) 7:10 PM | Thu, Apr 22 2021
Sport: MLB | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Win (1000) - Final Total 10
Over 9 (-114) @ Fanduel

I'm playing on Seattle/Boston OVER the total. Today's two starters, Pivetta (11) and Dunn (10) already have 21 combined walks to start the season. In the American League, only Tarik Skubal, who has 12, has walked more than Pivetta. Also, consider that Pivetta has made three appearances and that Dunn has made only two. Skubal has already made four appearances and has thrown more innings. In terms of walks per innings pitched, its tough to beat Dunn. He's thrown 9 2/3 innings and he's walked 10 batters. So, we're likely to see from free passes for Thursday's game at Fenway. Pivetta's been fortunate to keep his ERA respectable but his WHIP (1.636) gives a more clear picture. All three of his starts have produced double-digits, with combined scores of 13, 23 and 11. Seven straight meetings between these teams have also hit double-digits. Those games had combined scores of 13, 14, 15, 18, 11, 13 and 16. Expect another relatively high-scoring affair here. 


What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
