Mike Handzelek's Mid To Late August MLB Analysis, Review/Notes/Records

Saturday, August 20, 2022 Kansas City Royals vs. Tampa Bay Rays (MLB) - 4:10 PM EDT Premium Pick Pick: Money Line: -202 Tampa Bay Rays Rating: 9* Mike's Saturday Afternoon Delight (WIN) These Rays have been crafty! In the Willy Adames trade last May, Rasmussen came over from Milwaukee as a reliever. Pitching coach Kyle Snyder then converted him into a 4 to 5-inning starter that has paid off BIG dividends for Tampa Bay. His mechanics have been awe-inspiring. Besides the main pitch in his arsenal (a 4-seam fastball), his 2-plane action slider (with a 4.5 inch horizontal break) is a new pitch that's very tough to adjust to. His cutter still remains as another go-to pitch while sparingly using a change-up. His 2.80 overall ERA is great but what really stands out for us is his 1.04 ERA over his last 3 starts & an off-the-charts 0.86 ERA in day games this season. With KC hitting .234 versus RHP'ing, I expect that number to be much lower to start. Cue up some 70's Starland Vocal Band pop music as we go to Tropicana Field to play the KANSAS CITY ROYALS-NO SCORE-1st Inning as my 9 Star Saturday Afternoon Delight! Friday, August 19, 2022 Washington Nationals vs. San Diego Padres (MLB) - 9:40 PM EDT Premium Pick Pick: Point Spread: -1.5/-155 San Diego Padres Rating: 8* Mike's Friday Night Fricassee (WIN) Mike looks to continue his current streak as he'll be cooking up a mean dish on Friday that begins with LHP Blake Snell. I feel Snell's 4-seam fastball & slider has looked very tough to hit of late as witnessed by his 1.02 ERA over his last 3 starts. In fact, Blake has given up just 3 just ER's over his last 5 appearances. He's recently shown command over these same Nationals in Washington just 5 days ago pitching 6 s, hutout innings. He's looked better over the long haul in night games (than day) where he's registered a nifty 3.24 ERA. Add it all up & we'll go to Petco Park in SD to specifically play the WASHINGTON NATIONALS-NO SCORE-1st Inning as my 8* Friday Night Fricassee! NOTES: A new streak has been born that currently sits @ 5 games. Like I said before, you have to make the decision as a bettor to NOT talk yourself out of plays where the top advantages exist. Don't get hook on the tradition plays of just ML's for the game in MLB. If you read my saved NFL plays the past 2 seasons. I more than proved to EVERYONE you can hit over 70% in the NFL consistently using a combo of ML's & ATS picks using buy points. Don't miss out this season as I come off my highest career winning percentage over the last 2 seasons (review all write-ups & plays under my articles) as I'll have an earlybird 5+ month season package up soon for the best-in-the-business $249! Thanks to all my friends from the Courthouse, King's, Northwest, Mocanaqua, Facebook followers, family, Vegas & subscribers (local & internationally) for believing in the dream & having my trust to carry out the success. Mike Handzelek's 2022 MLB Overall Record: 45-14 for a personal best 76% Mike's MLB Plays Last 25: 23-2 for 92% --- Last 20: 19-1 for 95% -- Last 5: 5-0 for 100%
