Major League Baseball All Star Game July 19, 2022

Dodger stadium

For the second time, and first since 1980, the Los Angeles Dodgers will host the MLB All-Star game on Tuesday, July 19.  The game will not determine who hosts the World Series, as that privilege goes to the team with the best record during the regular season. This Fall Classic will be managed by Astros manager Dusty Baker in the AL, and the Braves manager Brian Snitker, both of whom won their respective pennants last season.

The American League has a nice 8-game winning streak dating back to 2013- there was no All-Star game in 2020 due to Covid. All the games the past 10 years have been relatively low scoring for All-Star games. With the exception of 2018 when 14 runs were scored, the most runs scored have been 9 or fewer. The New .........

Los Angeles Angels Vs Seattle Mariners

June 15, 2022 @ 11:01 AM

It’s always a spectacle when two-way superstar Shohei Ohtani takes the mound, and that is exactly what the fans in Seattle will see on Thursday night. The Angels and Mariners kick off a four-game AL West series with Ohtani going head to head with Seattle’s rookie pitcher George Kirby. In seven starts this season, Kirby has a 1-1 record with a respectable 3.65 ERA and 1.14 WHIP and a very respectable 35:4 strikeout to walk ratio. Kirby got roughed up a bit in his last start against Boston, although two of the five runs he let up were unearned. Meanwhile Ohtani is once again putting up MVP-like numbers boasting a 4-4 record with a 3.64 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP with a 71:13 strikeout to walk ratio.

The Angels have struggled as of late.........

Golden State Warriors Vs Boston Celtics

Boston vs Golden State

NBA Finals Game 6 Thursday June 16, 2022 at 09:00 pm EDT

The Warriors have the Celtics on the brink of elimination and are one win away from another NBA Championship. The series shifts back to Boston now where the two teams split Games 3 and 4. Golden State looked fairly dominant on Monday aside from a brief period in the second half where Boston took the lead. The Celtics clamped down on Steph Curry in Game 5, limiting him to just 16 points while going 0 for 9 from three-point land. Luckily for Golden State, Andrew Wiggins had a career night, dropping 26 points with 13 rebounds, while Jordan Poole added 14 off the bench and Gary Payton II chipped in with 15 points as well. Boston needs to maintain that level of defense on Curry, while .........

Miami Marlins vs Philadelphia Phillies

Philadelphia Phillies

MLB Baseball Monday June 13, 2022 at 7:05 pm EDT

Game 1 of this NL East series kicks off with the aces for each team on the mound. Aaron Nola was dominant in his last outing with eight scoreless innings en route to a 10-0 win over the Brewers. This is a game that we correctly handicapped with the Phillies moneyline and -1.5 runline as our best bets. Now, Philadelphia returns home against a scrappy young Marlins team. Not to be outdone, Sandy Alcantara went nine strong last game against the Nationals, allowing six hits, 0 earned runs, and striking out six. Alcantara has been masterful so far this season with a 1.61 ERA and 0.93 WHIP, while Nola has a 3.50 ERA and a 0.88 WHIP.

If you’re expecting a lot of runs, this is not going to.........

Boston vs Golden State

NBA Finals Game 5 Monday June 13, 2022 at 09:00 pm EDT

We head back to the bay area tied at two games a piece as the Warriors managed to steal one in Game 4. Once again the inability to stop Steph Curry cost the Celtics in the end. On top of that, it seems that Draymond Green has gotten under the skin of some of the Boston players, as the veteran big man had several Celtics involved in some verbal altercations. The fact that Boston got sucked into his mind games shows their inexperience in the playoffs, something that was going to be one of the X-Factors coming into this series. The Celtics now have to win at least one game in San Francisco if they want to win the NBA Championship this year. The narrative for Game 5 is the same for every.........

Chicago Cubs Vs New York Yankees

 MLB Baseball Wednesday June 11, 2022 at 7:15 pm ET

Two clubs heading in opposite directions, as the Cubs continue to rebuild after unloading the core of their team that won the World Series back in 2015. It will be a revenge game for Anthony RIzzo, who has found new life in the Bronx after leaving Chicago. As of now, the Cubs have Wade Miley starting against Luis Severino. While Miley has been injured for most of the season, he looks to be on the mound against arguably the best team in the American League. Led by the red-hot bat of current MVP frontrunner Aaron Judge, the Yankees have been obliterating the baseball and can also send out Giancarlo Stanton as the best one-two punch against lefties in the league.

The Yankees can mash .........

Boston vs Golden State

NBA Finals Game 4 Wednesday June 11, 2022 at 09:00 pm ET

Sometimes we forget just how much home court means to a team in a city like Boston. The Celtics fans were out in full force on Wednesday night and from the comments in the Golden State press conference, the Warriors really did take notice. Boston got off to a hot start and really didn’t let off the gas until the fourth quarter when Golden State came storming back. The Celtics were able to weather the storm and regain the lead, and finished out Game 3 with a convincing win. Friday night, Game 4 takes place back in hostile territory, and the Celtics can take a stranglehold of this series. Steph Curry injured his foot late in the game and Head Coach Steve Kerr was non committal .........

Philadelphia Phillies Vs Milwaukee Brewers

June 7, 2022 @ 12:17 PM

In the second of a three-game series, Philadelphia will throw out its ace Aaron Nola to take on the NL Central leading Milwaukee Brewers. Milwaukee’s resurgence has been a surprise, although you can also attribute it to the rest of the division struggling so far. Indeed the only other real competition is St. Louis who has been battling injuries thus far. Milwaukee’s strength lies in its pitching staff, so when there is a pitcher that is struggling against a decent offense, I tend to jump on the other side. Adrian Houser has been lit up a couple of times as of late, although he still has a 3.51 ERA this season.

His 1.40 WHIP and 41:23 strikeout to walk ratio speaks volumes as to how he has performed. Compare this to Nola who .........

Golden State Warriors vs Boston Celtics -3.5

Boston vs Golden State

NBA Finals Game 1 Sunday June 5, 2022 at 08:00 pm ET

Game 2 was likely the result that most people were expecting in Game 1: total dominance by the Warriors. It was a fairly even first half but Golden State pulled away in the second half, as Boston just could not defend the three-point line. Now, with the series shifting back to Boston, the Celtics find themselves as 3.5 point favorites. The question is if Boston can step up its defense on the perimeter to shut down Curry, Thompson, and Poole. Marcus Smart is the Defensive Player of the Year in the NBA but even he is having trouble containing the all-time great shooters on the Warriors. Boston has the size but not a lot of speed to tackle Golden State’s smaller lineups. Jayson .........

St Louis Cardinals Vs Chicago Cubs

Sunday Night Baseball sees a classic NL Central matchup between the Cardinals and the Cubs. The Cardinals have been good, but are still searching for consistency in the starting rotation. Veteran Adam Wainwright has been decent with a 2.75 ERA and 1.19 WHIP, and he should be able to handle what is a fairly weak Chicago lineup. The thing about the Cubs is they have been scrappy this year. Anyone who has been betting on Cubs games knows this. They aren’t pushovers, but they aren’t good either. The difference for me in this game is that Chicago pitcher Justin Steele is a lefty. 

The Cardinals as a team absolutely mash on lefty pitchers, particularly with heavy bats at the top of their lineup from Nolan Arenado and Paul ......
