Saturday, August 13, 2022 Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Kansas City Royals (MLB) - 7:10 PM EDT Premium Pick Pick: Money Line: -228 Los Angeles Dodgers Rating: 9* Mike's Saturday Night Sizzler (WIN) Mark Prior (ex-Cubs pitcher & now pitching coach with the L.A. Dodgers) & staff has groomed Andrew Heaney well. This southpaw has a devastating low 90's sinking fastball along with a curveball with excellent variable speeds. Rounding out his repertoire is a sneaky changeup that complements his sinker well. Heaney has given up just 2 ER's in his 6 starts this season. He brings in pristine numbers with a 0.64 overall ERA & 0.69 ERA @ night. I don't feel Dem' Bums' (now winners of their last 11) will show any let-up just yet as they've won 5 straight in interleague competition versus losing teams. Yes, the KC offense has hit lefties well @ home. However, they are ALSO habitual late-starters. With Heaney showing a superb 1.08 ERA in road showings in 2022, we'll gladly go to Kaufmann Stadium in the "Show Me State" to specifically play the KANSAS CITY ROYALS-NO SCORE-Inning 1 as my 9 Star Saturday Night Sizzler Play! Wednesday, August 10, 2022 Texas Rangers vs. Houston Astros (MLB) - 8:10 PM EDT Premium Pick Pick: Point Spread: -1.5/-145 Houston Astros Rating: 10* Mike's Rare 10 Star MLB Firestarter (WIN) The incredible ride of a 14-game win streak is over but they'll be other streaks before the season is over. Since I'm not feeling like Sandy Alcantara will have a strong dominance on the road @ Philadelphia, I DO feel Houston RHP & future HOF'er Justin Verlander won't be taking his rival Texas Rangers' lineup for granted after their strong start last night. Not only is Verlander 3-0 with an absurd 0.87 ERA over his last 3 but he is a very consistent 7-2 with a 1.76 ERA @ night this season. In fact solidifying our pick points toward him when he pitched 6 shutout innings versus these boys from the junior circuit @ Minute Maid Park on May 21st in a 2-1 Astros' win. Let's go to Houston to specifically play the TEXAS RANGERS-NO SCORE-Inning 1 as my RARE 10 Star MLB Firestarter! MLB Texas Rangers vs. Houston Astros - Tuesday, August 9, 2022, 8:10 PM ET Premium Pick Pick: Money Line: -175 Houston Astros (LOSS) Houston's double-digit winner Jose Urquidy has mastered the Texas lineup & should get the job done on his home mound against his intrastate rival. Take the TEXAS RANGERS-NO SCORE 1st Inning @ Minute Maid Park. NOTES: Forthcoming with record updates after Monday's play.
