    Should stick to the AL. Much better there so far.

    NY Yankees ML (+101)
    Both of these powerhouses are in danger of digging an early hole, and who would have thought an April series would mean so much? But The Red Sox look in a daze, as if they are the bizarro Red Sox. Poor defense? Yep. Price might be okay, but the starters are awful otherwise. BP inconsistent, hitting looks just off. The Orioles pitching made them look silly at times. Anyways, I think there is a better chance that Paxton is closer to getting it together than Sale. Paxton seems to have all his stuff, but has left a few too many pitches over the plate. The Yanks BP also looks closer to gelling than the Sox' BP. Yanks riddled with injuries, but they got enough to get it done here.

    Tampa RL (-120) The Orioles coming off a somewhat exhausting, intense Fenway series, and they now have to trot out Dylan Bundy to face a hot hitting Rays team. Bundy looks like he is completely a mess. Meanwhile, Tyler Glasnow, the Rays starter, has developed(possibly) into a possible #2 on the Tampa staff. His fastball at 97 is moving like crazy, and his off speed is under command. The Orioles will have some ugly games (like the whole Oakland series), and I think this will be one of them.

    Likely will have 2 First 5 game in the AM.

    Medium play:
    Tampa -1/2 F5 (-140)

    Medium/Small: KC -110 F5 KC bullpen too awful to take the whole game. R. Lopez is a way off in mechanics. It seems he is way off, and his 12 walks, 22 hits and 6 HRs in just 13 IPs is proof that he's a mess. Until he gets it right, I'm going against. Small on KC TT-F5- over 2.5

    Small:
    SF Giants ML +170 The Nats are almost always overrated in the betting lines. the Giants have been on the West Coast this whole season so far, and are hitting about as poor as possible. But, they really don't have that dismal of a lineup, and a change in venue might help. Strasburg still a tough pitcher, but not dominant anymore. The Giants have a large edge in bullpens.

    Small:
    SD/ Colorado- under 7.5 Jon Gray had a strong spring, and seems to have gotten it together last start. Padre lefty Margevicius also has been very good this season, and with the way the Rockies are NOT hitting, and considering Petco's pitcher friendliness, this looks like a low scoring game. Padre BP solid, Rockies BP improving. Padres seem to hit much better on the road.

    Sale looked better tonight, better velocity, but Paxton is dealing.
