Baltimore (+190) at WASHINGTON

By Chris Jordan, Featured Handicapper

Lost for the first time in six nights, as my 800♦ on the Oklahoma City Thunder turned into a trap, and they were humiliated by the Memphis Grizzlies. My bad there, as I should have seen that coming, but counted Memphis out.

Nevertheless, I'm aiming for Winning Day # 6 of 7 tonight.

My American League West Game of the Week is inside, as the Houston Astros are in Oakland and looking for revenge against the Athletics.

Fact is, I'm focused on every aspect of every game, and that includes zeroing in on value prices when I see them, whether we're talking underrated underdogs or cheap numbers on favorites. Either way, you're going to see value in the prices I'm playing.

Listen, I'm geared up to get started with SPORTS!! I've watched my fair share of obscure sports the past four months, and I'm ready for the majors to take over. MLB, NBA, NHL and soon we'll have NFL.

Game of the Week

Athletics Run Line (+135) 5-1 over Texas

5-1 with 200♦ MLB Plays to start the season
including Sunday's winner on Houston,
and Monday's winner on Cincinnati


My free play for Saturday is the Baltimore Orioles against the Washington Nationals, and if you're able to list pitchers, I want you listing only Thomas Eshelman.

The second-year right-hander is still looking for his first victory of the season, as he's 0-0 with a 2.70 ERA and will now step to the hill for his first start of the season. He's pitching in place of John Means, who is on the bereavement list, and I'm betting Eshelman will be at his best.

He catches a Nationals team that has played just three games this month, after its series with the Miami Marlins was canceled due to coronavirus. Last night it was all Baltimore in an 11-0 win, a game I gave you for free. Washington split two games with the Mets on Tuesday and Wednesday, and I'm going to be real critical of the Nats offense. In their 10 games, they've scored two or less runs in six of those games. They're averaging 3.0 runs per game, not something they're used to.

Baltimore may not be a better team overall, but its faced some stiff competition already, and is averaging 4.61 runs per game after 13 contests.

Let's take a shot with the road dog and list Eshelman only.

My free winner for Saturday is the Minnesota Twins on the run line, against the Kansas City Royals. This has to be a bounce back game for the Twins, who couldn't get past Kansas City's feisty bullpen in a 3-2 loss last night.

Jake Odorizzi is on the hill for Minnesota tonight, and though he's expected to be limited to around 70 pitches in his season debut - he's coming off the injured list following his recovery from a right intercostal strain - I'm counting on him to limit Kansas City's offense, while giving his teammates enough time to build a cushion.

Minnesota's bats should come to life against Danny Duffy, who is 0-2 with a 4.11 ERA this season thus far. He didn't look too bad on Monday against the Chicago Cubs, lasting six innings, giving up three hits and just one run. But now he faces an angry lineup that will be looking to snap this mini two-game slide.

Before last night, the Twins had scored at least five runs in four straight games. They've talled a league sixth-best 70 runs in their first 14 games, and have belted a league fourth-highest 22 home runs.

I'll lay the run line, as Minnesota bounces back big.
