A 2-1 record last night. 3-1-1 on the season.

Not a bad start to the season with only the Giants/Padres over letting us down. There were a few other overs the system liked, but I went with that one because it was low. It’s not always the data that’s wrong, sometimes it’s just the person interpreting it.

Back at it today with a more normal schedule with tons of night games on the schedule. We’re getting a lot of new visitors so now is the time to welcome them into the comments below and let everyone know that you can have the tips emailed to you daily by signing up below.

With all that being said, on to the tips.

Detroit Tigers vs. Toronto Blue Jays Betting Tips:

Yesterday saw a surprising game between these two as Jordan Zimmerman chased a no-hitter. Today, I am expecting things to turn out much differently.

The Jays send Aaron Sanchez to the mound who had a disastrous 2018 with a 4.89 ERA/4.74 FIP. The walks were a big problem for him at almost 5 per nine. He’s had a lot of injuries issues involving blisters over the past few years. He’s healthy coming in here, but those issues have caused him to change his pitch mix which did not work out for him last year. I’m taking a believe it when I see it approach with him and expect an early exit.

The same can be said about Matthew Boyd here. He had a 4.39 ERA/4.45 FIP last year, but that was definitely boosted by an extremely low BABIP (batting average on balls in play) and he gave up 1.43 HR/9.

This just feels like a game where both pitchers make an early exit and I’m going with the over here.

Boston Red Sox vs. Seattle Mariners Betting Tips:

The Mariners shocked the world yesterday as they rocked Chris Sale and beat the World Champs handily on Opening Day. I don’t see that happening again here.

Yusei Kikuchi made his Mariners debut and lasted 4.2 innings against the Athletics in Japan. He looked fine, but it’s the early exit that gives me pause and the fact that he is facing a much, much scarier offense here that scares me away. Just picturing him against JD Martinez and Mookie Betts today, two opposite handed MVP candidates, and I don’t see things going well.

The Red Sox will send playoff hero Nathan Eovaldi to the mound here. He really did a good job of upping his strikeouts while keeping his walks down last season and posted a great 3.81 ERA/3.60 FIP on the year. The Mariners offense has shown early this year that they are very potent, but I think the Red Sox will see them coming now and gameplan a bit differently for this one. I just don’t see the champs starting 0-2 and I like them to grab the win here.
