"đź’Ł Thursday Sports Betting Action "

EMAILED May 13 2021

Happy Thursday Sports Bettors! The A’s beat the Red Sox for a nice +140 win but the Over did not come in because the Red Sox offense is struggling the last few games. We split the day 1-1 but gained +0.40 units thanks to the + money.

YESTERDAY'S MLB RECAP:  The Favorites went 10-5; upsets by A's (+137 at Red Sox), Tigers (+134 vs. Royals), Blue Jays (+100 at Braves), Rockies (+143 vs. Padres, Game 2) & Marlins (+113 at D-backs); White Sox (-132 vs. Twins, +150 RL) are on 23-1 SU run vs. lefties, 21-3 RL!  After a slow start to the season, favorites are starting to pull away now at 293-244 SU (though still only 54.6%) on the season. The Unders went 10-4-1 with push on Mariners-Dodgers (8) to increase the lead to 274-262-18 (51.1%).

MLB Betting Notes: For tracking purposes, each game's wager amount is to win 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 Pirates have beat the Giants 5 of the last 7 times they played each other. The Giants are also much worse on the road this season winning 14 of the 22 games at home and 10 of the 14 losses have come on the road. This Pirates team has a career team batting average of .389 against DeSclafani including 6 home runs. The Giants also struggle offensively against righties this season with a team batting average of .221. There is reverse line movement, sharp action, and good value with Pittsburgh in this spot. Both these teams have had good overall starting and bullpen pitching which gives the Under a good chance to come in. Look for the home team with the + money to get the win in this spot.
