2008 MLB RECORD: 21-20
I have officially become the Detroit Lions of the handicapper world. I started out the MLB season blazing while the rest of the world was just waking up, only to go 1 for my last 7 picks. So like any good sports team that is down and out, I am simply trying to get a bucket, score a field goal, etc before going into all star break. Oh yeah, I've got some pretty sweet pics for you as well.
Pittsburgh Pirates @ Milwaukee Brewers +137(-1.5runs)
The Brew Crew has been rolling, the Pirates not so much, and I really thought it was time for things to change when I started looking at this game, but I couldn't find a reason why the Pirates would actually win today. The two biggest reasons why I love the Crew today are this.....they win 2 of every 3 at home and they also win 3 of every 4 against lefties, and Zach Duke happens to be a lefty, mediocre at best. Outside of that the Crew happens to have a better overall team(48-39 vs. 40-46), a fresher bullpen(only 6 innings in the last 3 games), and better in almost every stat category. I'm gonna parlay this one with the over at 9 as well. Motley wins 7-4.
