Cubs vs. Reds MLB Over-Under Odds & Pick from Scott Rickenbach: April 22nd 2017

Chicago Cubs vs. Cincinnati Reds
MLB Over-Under Pick: Under 8 runs -110 odds (April 22nd 2017)

Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach MLB Saturday Free Pick UNDER the total in Cincinnati Reds vs Chicago Cubs @ 1:10 ET – Yesterday’s game was a bad beat for those who had Cincinnati (including yours truly) as a big dog as they gave up a 3 run bomb with 2 outs in the top of the 9th to allow the Cubs to tie it. That also was a bad beat for under players as the game was one pitch away from ending 5-2 and staying under the total. Some redemption can be had today. It will be a raw chilly afternoon in Cincinnati with the wind blowing in from left field. Cody Reed gets the start for the Reds and he’s full of confidence as he has yet to allow a hit in his 8 innings out of the bullpen this season. Suffice to say the southpaw has earned this start and the Cubs really haven’t hit very well early this season and were very fortunate to get that win last night. As for the Reds lineup, they are unlikely to enjoy success against Jake Arrieta as the right-hander is 5-2 with a 0.92 WHIP in his 7 career starts versus Cincy. The Cubs right-hander also no-hit them right here in April of last year. Free Pick on UNDER the total in Cincinnati very early Saturday afternoon. Best of luck, Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach

Bruins vs. Senators Odds: Schule betting Ottawa +107 over Boston on April 21st 2017

Boston Bruins vs. Ottawa Senators
NHL Betting Pick: Ottawa +107 odds (April 21st 2017)

The Sens lost Game 1 of this series at home by a score of 2-1, but have stormed back to win three straight. They have a chance to eliminate the Bruins at home tonight, and the bookmakers have Boston listed as a slight favorite. Ottawa has some big advantages in this series, starting with the goaltending. Craig Anderson has out-played Tukka Rask, which isn’t that surprising considering Rask nearly lost his job as Boston’s starter halfway through this season.

Perhaps the even bigger advantage for the Sens is on the blue line, with Erik Karlsson proving he’s still one of the league’s best. Karlsson has five points so far in four games. The Bruins decimated defense is missing key players Torey Krug, Adam McQuaid and Brandon Carlo. The Bruins have lost six of their last seven at Ottawa, and 13 of their last 16 overall versus the Sens.

Royals vs. Rangers MLB Prediction from Brandon Shively: April 21st 2017

Kansas City Royals vs. Texas Rangers
MLB Prediction: Texas -154 odds (April 21st 2017)

1* Free Play on Texas Rangers Moneyline- The Texas Rangers are much better than their record would indicate. Texas is a team that should finish in the top six or eight in the majors in runs scored. Their offense is due to break out of their slump. Cole Hamels is on the mound too, and the Rangers are 24-8 in his last 32 home starts. Hamels is a work horse and he is the type of guy that helps get a team going.

The Royals are a team I’m very low on for this year. Kansas City has a really weak offense and Nate Karns is very inconsistent as their starting pitcher here.

This price is relatively expensive, but it is worth it. Texas gets the job done here.
Take Texas.

*Brandon has his MLB GAME of the WEEK up for Friday. 4-1 last 4 MLB Totals plays. 9-3 last 12 NBA plays. 19-7 last 26 top 10* rated NBA plays. A 10* NBA BEST Bet CRUSHER is up for Friday as well. Friday Entire Card 3 Pack is the Best Value. Win big on Friday! Jump on board!*

Royals vs. Rangers MLB Prediction from Mike Lundin: April 20th 2017

Kansas City Royals vs. Texas Rangers
MLB Prediction: Royals -115 odds (April 20th 2017)

The Kansas City Royals have won five of their last six games and tonight’s starting pitcher Danny Duffy (2-0, 1.80 ERA) has been excellent his his three starts this season, allowing just four runs on 14 hits through 20 innings of work. The Texas Rangers meanwhile have lost five of their last six and Andrew Cashner (0-1, 5.06 ERA) have up four runs (three earned) through 5 1/3 innings in his lone start so far.

Texas lost 9-1 at Oakland yesterday and is 1-6 in its last seven after scoring two runs or fewer in its previous game. The Royals are 5-1 in Duffy’s last six starts when their opponent scores two runs or fewer in their previous game.

Mike Lundin has had a tough start with bases, but he’s RED HOT at the hardwood and 5-1 (83%) in the NBA playoffs so far.

Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Over-Under Odds & Pick: April 20th 2017

Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Indiana Pacers
NBA Over-Under Pick: Under 211 points (April 20th 2017)

Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach NBA Thursday Free Pick UNDER the total in Indiana Pacers vs Cleveland Cavaliers @ 7 ET – There has been red hot shooting so far in this series so, not surprisingly, both games have found the way over the total. As a result, the posted O/U on this game has been driven up and that is leading to some additional line value here in Game 3. With 2 days of rest in between games we could see some of the hot shooting touch fade here. Also, 8 of the Pacers last 12 home games have stayed under the total. Indiana, down 0-2 in this series, knows they need to play better defense if they’re going to get back into this series with a win tonight. The under is 7-1 this season when the Cavs enter a game having played each of their three prior games at home. Even with the first two games of this playoff series going over the total, the under is still 6-3 in Pacers playoff games in recent seasons. Look for the Pacers to do a better job of limiting the Cavaliers weapons here after allowing the Cavs to shoot 54.5% from the field in Cleveland in the first two games of this series. Free Pick on UNDER the total in Indiana early Thursday evening. Best of luck, Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach

Cardinals vs. Brewers MLB Prediction & Odds from Ben Burns: April 20th 2017

St. Louis Cardinals vs. Milwaukee Brewers
MLB Prediction: St. Louis -120 odds (April 20th 2017)

Ben Burns was 7-1 on Wednesday, a PERFECT 3-0 at the ballpark. Here, he takes a look at Game 1 of the Cards/Brewers series.

Yesterday’s loss at Wrigley figures to take a toll on the Brewers. It was a game the Brewers thought they had won. (You probably saw that the Cubs rallied and eventually won via a walk-off home run.) Off that deflating loss, their second straight, the Brewers take on a suddenly surging St. Louis team.

The Cards, who had previously lost six of seven, are off a sweep of the Pirates. They won all three games by a 2-1 score.

St. Louis figures to have the edge on the mound once again. Martinez gets the call for the visitors and he’s 4-1 (team is 6-2) with a stellar 1.79 ERA in eight starts vs. the Brewers. In his last two starts here at Milwaukee, he’s recorded a whopping 24 K’s, dominating the Brewer lineup.

Davies has been horrible thus far. In two starts here at Milwaukee, he’s 0-2 with a 10.61 ERA and 2.358 WHIP.

The Cards are 26-12 against the Brewers the past few seasons and that includes a 13-5 mark here at Milwaukee. Consider St. Louis.
