8/24/2014 1:05 PM MLB Baseball 919 Chicago White Sox* -125 vs New York Yankees for 1st 5 Innings
C Sale - L Listed C Capuano - L Listed
Risking 1.00 To Win 0.80 (WINNER)
This one is based on how good Sale is and how well the Sox have played the Yankees thus far this series. They have actually been tied after 5 in both games thus far, and I think with their Ace on the mound the should be able to get the lead by 5 today. Note I don't trust the White Sox closers against the Yankees so I am just doing 1 unit on the 5 inning line.

8/24/2014 3:05 PM Reduced Baseball 925 Kansas City Royals* -1½ +110 vs Texas Rangers
J Vargas - L Listed S Baker - R Listed
Risking 2.00 To Win 2.20 (Loss)
I don't think this comes as much of a surprise. We are going with the Royals again today. They have cashed each of our plays thus far this week and they are absolutely on fire. This is the time of the year when the good teams close a series like this out and go for the finish. Vargas is a better pitcher than Baker, and after watching yesterday's game, Texas' defense is in shambles.
8/24/2014 2:10 PM Reduced Baseball 923 Detroit Tigers* -1½ +120 vs Minnesota Twins
M Scherzer - R Listed K Gibson - R Listed
Risking 1.00 To Win 1.20 (WINNER)
The Twins were all over the Tigers earlier in this series, but when you look at the starting pitchers its not really a big surprise. The Tigers didn't exactly have their aces on the mound, but they do tonight with Max Scherzer who comes into this game at 14-4 3.07 ERA he has only 1 loss in his last 10 starts and the Tigers have won 6 of those 10 by 2 or more runs. The Tigers will be gunning to get a split in this series to avoid losing any more ground to KC who is on fire right now. Minnesota hands the ball to Gibson who is 11-9 on the year ERA 4.13. I think Detroit has the motivation factor going for them today and I like them to carry yesterday's momentum into today and get a big multi-run win.
8/24/2014 4:00 PM Reduced Football 279 San Diego Chargers* +210 vs San Francisco 49ers
Risking 1.00 To Win 2.15 (LOSS)
One preseason NFL pick. I have to go with the value play here with San Diego vs a San Fran team that has averaged 1.5 points per game in their first 2 preseason games lol. San Diego looked solid and I just cant ignore 2.15 to 1 odds on a team that appear to have their shit together vs a sloppy looking San Fran team.
