Tigers at Red Sox – Rule one when Max Scherzer is on the hill facing a excellent hitting team with a good pitcher bet BIG against the Tigers! Max got rocked the last time he faced Boston this year giving up seven earned runs in 2 2/3 innings. He is a career 0-4 with a 11.81 ERA vs the Red Sox in four starts. Do I really need to tell you anything else? Okay, if you insist. The Red Sox Josh Beckett since his regrettable "golf" performance is 2-0 with a 1.25 ERA in three starts going seven innings at least in each start. There are some players that simple need a reason to get pissed and Josh is one of them. I hate the Red Sox as a Yankees fan, but I do appreciate Beckett’s talent. I am going big, big, big on Boston boys!
TV’s Take: Red Sox -135; -1.5 +145/Bet $405 to win $300 and Bet $200 -1.5 to win $290
Remember, my bets only have to do with my confidence level. So instead of me saying this Red Sox game is a 5-Star game I say bet $405 or even if I said $270. I just try to make it as if you are at the betting window at the MGM for instance. This way you have an idea of how much I would bet instead of having to guess the value of a "star" game. Props to Max if he pulls it off, but I just do not see it. This guy is junk in my book and only useful for K’s in roto leagues.
