Reasoning: I had Baltimore yesterday right here in that easy underdog win at Chicago and am going to go right back to that well. I just like Buck Showalter's team when getting money back as they are dangerous offense and good enough to beat a semi downtrodden White Sox squad.
Ozzie Guillen was just suspended and the ChiSox have not been playing very good ball of late at all. They did recently take two of three games at Yankee Stadium but have pretty much lost everything else and all in all little has gone right for the South Siders in the past few weeks. This team is not hitting the ball, the relievers at times have been atrocious and all in all is just not very good right now. At some point guys like Konerko, Dunn, Beckham and others will pick it up as there is a bunch of talent there but until they do Chicago is a must go against team for sure in a spot such as this one.
Phil Humber did have that no-hitter fairly late in that last start in the Bronx but I'm not buying it. It's still Phil Humber, not even Phil Niekro, as he is a guy that is far from being great. The former Met draft pick has pitched well and deserves to be in the starting rotation, I admit that. He also may be a little better than the young Chris Tillman right now but I'll take a little coin back with the much underrated and frankly really good Baltimore offense. Markakis, Roberts, Guerrero, Jones and Lee help make up a lineup that has the potential to put up a bunch of crooked numbers.
If this is the time that the Sox lineup comes together, which is always possible, then so be it. But until the "good guys" show a sign of life my jack is on a very competent O's squad at an underdog price.
Top expert pick on this game: Baltimore from Matt Rivers
For more information: I have had 36 of 55 winning days and 7.9 million stars of profit. Even with the recent bump in the road the numbers are still beyond gaudy. The 200,000* on the Grizzlies was sweet last night and now I double that with a 400,000* from the Jake involving the Tigers and Indians. Bonus 200,000* with the Angels and Rays. I'm the best there is and will once again be the best there is! Click now to purchase
