Pick Details

(967) Toronto vs. Kansas City (968) 2:10 PM | Sat, Apr 17 2021
Sport: MLB | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Win (1000)
TOR (-105) @ pinnacle

T.M. Selection: Blue Jays (10* MONEY-MAKER).

Both teams are "hungry," but Toronto has the vastly better starting pitcher in this opening game and in this shortened double-header scenario, I think that's going to pay dividends for Steven Matz and the Jays. Matz is 2-0 with a 1.46 ERA and who has allowed just two runs over his first 12 innings of work. Volatile Mike Minor gets the nod for the Royals, and he's 1-0 with a 4.50 ERA, earning a no-decision in his last outing vs. the White Sox on Sunday. I love Matz in the opener of this double-header on Saturday afternoon; lay the short price!

T.M. Prediction: 6-3 Toronto.


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.
