Streakers for the Cash will get 11 shots to pick the green in today’s matchups. Aside from an EPL game this afternoon at 3:00, all the games are either very early-season Baseball or very late-season NBA basketball. With these two sports season overlapping there’s plenty of options today and good luck to you in all your picks today.
Yesterday, my picks did pretty well overall and the 2 I went with (Suns, no Hamels win) got my up to a W3. It’s a tough board today without any easy picks in sight. Here’s the ones I like the most today, although you’ll see my confidence is lower than usual:
1:05-Detroit Tigers: This afternoon’s marquee baseball matchup sees 2 unbeaten’s face off as Tampa visits Detroit. The Rays go with young gun Matt Moore while the Tigers will counter with Rick Porcello. The Tigers offense is mashing right now having just trashed the Red Sox pitching staff. The Tigers took 6 of 7 from Tampa last year and will look to continue their hot start. Confidence Meter: 4 (out of 10)
8:05-Rondo assists or tie in the first half: Rondo has been dishing assists at an average of 12.8 a game over his last 5. He should have 5-8 assists in the first half agains the Heat. He tends to rise to these occasions and play even better than usual. LeBron always has the potential to just go off and score a ton of points. With Pierce on him playing tight D and Dwyane Wade most likely to play, I think Rondo is the pick here, plus he gets the tie. I don’t love any picks today, but this is the one I like the best. Confidence Meter: 6
10:05-Arizona Diamondbacks: I picke the D-Backs to win the World Series and right now they’re on pace to go 162-0 (sarcasm intended). They’ll send newly acquired starter Trevor Cahill against San Diego and Edinson Volquez in Petco. The Snakes offense is rollin’ and the Padres were 0-3 before winning 8-4 on Sunday. Confidence Meter: 5
Current Streak: W3
Overall Record for the month: 13-17
Picks with Confidence +5: 9-6
