The month of May comes to an end on Streak for the Cash as the week wraps up with options from the French Open, an NCAA Baseball Regional, and international soccer today. Tonight there are picks from the Major Leagues and a final pick fro mthe Nigeria-Mexico friendly in Houston. As usual with the end of the month, things wrap up early today and there aren’t a ton of options. I’ll give you my picks and a quick overview as well as my confidence in each one. Here’s the picks I’m watching today:

5/31 Streak Picks

7:45- 2 or more : This is the final user-submitted prop of the month and it comes from Roland Garros. This one asks how many tiebreaker between Milos Raonic and Kevin Anderson. Both have electric serves and are very difficult to break meaning tiebreakers are likely to be needed. They’ve met once before and in two sets needed two tiebreakers. Confidence Meter: (out of 10)

12:05- Alabama Crimson Tide: ‘Bama is -165 to win and beat Troy earlier this month 11-2. They are the #2 and #3 seeds in this regional, so it’s not a lock but its the best pick of the early part of the day. Confidence Meter: 6

7:05- Detroit Tigers: Max Scherzer has been great and now that they don’t have to face the Pirates pitching I think the Tigers will start hitting again. Miguel Gonzalez who starts for Baltimore is solid but not usually dominating. The game is in Baltimore and the O’s just took three of four from the Nats so they’re playing well. I’ll take the Tigers, but it’s far from a lock. Confidence Meter: 3


7:05- Pittsburgh Pirates: The Pirates have had an exceptional May and will look to keep it rolling agains their NL-Central foe-Cincinnati. The Reds send Johnny Cueto against Wandy Rondriguez in what should be a well-played, well-pitched game. The Reds have struggled on the road (13-14) including dropping a pair agains the Tribe in Cleveland in their last two. Pittsburgh, on the other hand, just took two at home from Detroit and are 20-9 at PNC Park this season. Confidence Meter: 5

9:05- Mexico Win: In many ways, this will feel like a home game for Mexico and their fans are sure to pack out Reliant Stadium. It’s only an exhibition game, though, so don’t put too much stock in it especially since Mexico has had trouble scoring as of late. Confidence Meter: 4
