Streak for the Cash Picks-April 4


It’s a beautiful day across the country as the Major League Baseball season gets underway on this sie of the Pacific Pond with the Marlins and Cardinals set to face off tonight… The streak boarders at ESPN have set us up for a tricky opening night with 9 matchups on the board and none of them looking great. Here’s the one’s I like the most though:

2:45-Chelsea: Chelsea advances with a draw, but they won at Benfica 1-0 without Drogba and Cahill. This is about as sure of a soccer pick as you can get. Go Chelsea to score a couple and cruise into a nice semi against Barcelona in the next round. Confidence Meter-6 (out of 10)

 

7:05-Miami Marlins: Baseball is unpredictable as always, but with Josh Johnson on the mound to open their new park with their new-look lineup, I feel like Miami wins at home and the defending champs go down to start their title defense. Confidence Meter-7

10:40-LA Clippers:The Clippers have won 6 in a row and are the hosts for this inter-building rivalry. Each team has won 1 game in this series, but I’ll take the Clippers here since the Lakers played last night (Clippers didn’t), and the fact that Andrew Bynum may or may not be available for this one. Plus, CP3 doesn’t like getting his head touched and he will be ready for Pau and the Lakers this time…Confidence Meter: 2.5

Yesterday: 1-2

Current Streak: W3 (only went with the one I really felt I could)

All Picks for the month: 4-6

Confidence +5 picks for the month: 4-0
