Royals vs. Angels MLB Betting Odds & Pick from Alex Smart: April 15th 2017

Kansas City Royals vs. Los Angeles Angels
MLB Betting Pick: Royals +110 odds (April 15th 2017)

The Royals are heating up and now go for their third straight win when they take on the LA Angels in the 2nd game of this 3 game set.  Its been KC home -run swing that has been the most impressive portion of their upswing as they now have 13 HRs. Meanwhile, the Halos starting hurler today Shoemaker is off a ugly start last time out  against Seattle allowing  seven runs – six earned – on five hits and a pair of walks over  just 4 1/3 innings of work.  Needless to say the Angels  righty did not look good. Shoemaker, had alot of problems last  April as well  as is evident by a (1-4, record and ugly looking 9.11 ERA). In his career the  Royals have not been kind to him,  and he went 0-3 along  with a miserable 11.34 ERA in four starts against them last season . His team has lost 5 straight starts vs the Royals, and Im betting on a rinse and repeat situation today.

I also expect Karns the the KC Starter to be adequate enough to give his team a chance to power their way to victory . ( Halos own a lowly .230 BA in 5 road games this season).

KANSAS CITY is 16-5 L/21 against the money line vs. AL teams allowing 4.9 or more runs/game on the season dating back to last season.Royals are 4-0 in their last 4 vs. a team with a winning record.Angels are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in Kansas City.

Play on the KC Royals to win on the money-line

NHL Pick: Will Rogers betting the Rangers +140 odds over the Canadiens on April 14th 2017

New York Rangers vs. Montreal Canadiens
NHL Pick: Rangers +140 odds (April 14th 2017)

The set-up: The NHL’s postseason opened on Wednesday, with four of five visiting teams walking away with a victory. It’s true that the Canadiens had won all three regular-season meetings with the Rangers but it was also true that the Rangers led the NHL in regular-season road wins (27). Therefore, it can’t be too much of a shock that New York was one of those four winning road teams, winning 2-0 at Bell Centre. Henrik Lundqvist registered 31 saves for his 10th shutout in the postseason, which are the most among active netminders. Some are already labeling Friday’s game a must-win for the Canadiens but Montreal goaltender Carey Price was not ready to sound the alarm. “It’s just one game,” Price said. “It’s a seven-game series and we weren’t going to win 16 straight games. We would have liked to. You know, we got what we got and we’re going to move forward.”

NY Rangers: Lundqvist’s regular-season mark at Bell Centre is 4-9-2 with a 3.97 goals-against average but Wednesday’s 2-0 win makes him 3-0-0 with a 2.01 goals-against average in his last four playoff appearances at Bell Centre. In a series between two teams known for their speed, a surprise came out of the opening game as the two combined for 98 hits through 60 minutes (45 for New York, 53 for Montreal). Forty of those were delivered in the first period alone.

Montreal: The Canadiens had their chances in Game 1, taking shots that produced rebounds but players were not in position for a quick strike of the loose puck. The Canadiens attempted 68 shots overall, 31 of which reached Lundqvist. However, the team’s inability to dent Lundqvist revived memories of Montreal’s six-game loss to Tampa Bay in the conference semifinals two years ago, when the Canadiens scored five goals in their four losses. Coach Claude Julien said there would be no lineup changes following Wednesday’s practice, which focused on players setting up screens and working on deflections and rebounds. “There were a couple of chances where we got pucks to the net and rebounds were sitting there,” captain Max Pacioretty said. “We’ve got to dig a little bit deeper to come up with those type of chances.”

The pick: At this point, Montreal’s three wins in three tries over the Rangers during the regular season hardly means much. Rather, one may be wondering if the Rangers have the Canadiens’ number? After all, Wednesday’s win extended New York’s string of postseason success in Montreal to six wins in its last seven games at Bell Centre. Take the Rangers again in Game 2.

Rangers vs. Angels Betting Odds & Pick from Brandon Shively: April 13th 2017

Texas Rangers vs. Los Angeles Angels
MLB Betting Pick: Texas -131 odds (April 13th 2017)

The Texas Rangers are underpriced on Thursday afternoon in Anaheim. Yu Darvish over Ricky Nolasco is a massive starting pitching mismatch. Nolasco is at the very best an average pitcher in the majors. Yu Darvish has some of the best stuff in the majors, and if he can stay healthy I expect a great season out of him.

Texas has certainly had their fair share of bullpen blowups this year, and those have been highly publicized. I believe those have given us some extra value here. Remember, the Angels don’t have a good bullpen at all either. In fact, I’m not convinced it is better than the Texas bullpen.

The Angels have pulled out a lot of magic in the early going this year, but they aren’t going to consistently win games where they dig a deep hole. The Rangers clearly have the deeper lineup. Texas is much more dangerous now that Joey Gallo is providing the team with consistent power near the bottom of the order.

The Rangers are 7-1 in Darvish’s last 8 starts vs. the Angels. This is a fair price to lay with the much better pitcher and the better lineup.
