"🔪 Thursday Sports Betting Action "

EMAILED April 22 2021

Happy Thursday Sports Bettors!  The Cubs not only won but pounded the Mets for another 2-0 day for The Bookie. That puts the sides record at 15 wins and 5 losses to +10.88 Units. A $100 bettor would be up to $1088 to start the season and it's still the FIRST MONTH! 

Remember to use proper money management. Even though we are straight dominating MLB, it does not mean it is time to increase your wager amounts. 

MLB RECAP: The Underdogs went 8-5 Straight Up with the Rays-Royals closing consensus pick-'em; Brewers (+170 at Padres) was the biggest upset with the others by Rangers (+158), Blue Jays (+113), D-backs (+155), Cubs (+113), Rockies (+129), Braves (+130) & Pirates (+113 in Game 1). Dogs reclaim the lead on the season at 127-126 SU with 11 games closing PK; Over/Unders split 7-7. The Unders still lead the season 138-118-7 (53.9%).

The phrase about winning something “hands down” originally referred to a jockey who won a race without whipping his horse or pulling back the reins.

MLB Betting Notes: For tracking purposes, each game's wager amount is 1 unit unless otherwise noted. Example: If your bankroll is $10,000. 1 unit should be 1% of your bankroll. In this example: $100 is 1 unit. Most bettors' units are different depending on their Bankroll. As a tip, you should never bet more than 5% of your bankroll at once. Example: $500 of $10,000. Don't overexpose yourself by using poor bankroll management and don't forget to choose the correct listed pitcher in your wagers.

The Mets had DeGrom scheduled to start this game but he asked for 1 extra day of rest so the Cubs will face Luchessi instead. Another lefty that the Cubs would love to have pitch over DeGrom. The Cubs as a team has a batting average of .652 with Javier Baez leading the team with a .833 against Luchessi. The Cubs have scored 23 runs in the previous 3 games compared to the Mets 7 runs. The Mets offense is struggling while the Cubs bats are starting to click. Look for the Cubs to get another W here.
