Pick Details

(927) Houston vs. Seattle (928) 4:10 PM | Sun, Apr 18 2021
Sport: MLB | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Win (1000) - Final Total 9
Over 8.5 (-125) @ bet365

I'm playing on Houston/Seattle OVER the total. Yesterday's game was 1-0 pitcher's duel. I'm expecting the opposite type of game this afternoon though. The Paciifc Northwest is getting an early taste of summer right now. Yesterday's game was a night game. While still a nice evening, the hitters didn't benefit from the warmer temperatures they'll see here. Indeed, it should be a good afternoon for hitting. Of course, roof open or closed, good or bad weather, it comes down to the pitchers. In this case, both starters have a WHIP above two, thus far. That's ugly. Margevicius has a 6.00 ERA and a 2.333 WHIP. Odorizzi, meanwhile, has an obscene 13.51 ERA to go along with a 2.102 WHIP. Yes, those numbers are from a very small sample size; neither pitcher is that bad. That said, neither are in good form, either. Margevicius pitches in 4-days rest instead of five and Odorizzi just served up three home runs in 3 1/3 innings. Expect this one to hit double-digits. 


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.
