Free MLB Baseball Picks for July 28, 2012
I was back to my winning ways going 3-0 on my free picks and 6-0 on my premium picks on Friday, can’t do much better than that but will do my best to keep it rolling. With the Olympics diverting attention from the diamond we should see more value over the next few weeks. In any event I will continue on with my free picks and of course after you grab your free pick be sure to check our Premium Sports Picks by our Expert Sports Handicappers.
Arizona Diamondbacks -175 vs. New York Mets 8:10 PM EST
So the guy I talked about who picks his World Series teams every week right before they go down the toilet is certain this week it’s going to be the Nationals and the Angels so as you look over the schedule for the next 10 days or so you might want to look for plenty of places to fade these two and you are going to want to just keep them out of your big plays. I have to listen to a bunch of justification that goes with the picks that I will spare you from but let’s just say it’s nonsense and the fade thing has been working all year. Remember: Nationals and Angels are poison to the bankroll over the near term.
I have a confession to make: I actually felt a little bad for the American Olympians when I saw them on the news tonight. The Americans were wearing berets that I have heard were made in China. Not only not too flattering, nothing American about it. So these guys work their tails off their entire lives and we send them ou tin this crap? What’s more American than jeans and a T-shirt, I am sure the athletes would have liked them a lot better as well. While I bash the Olympics oftenI do wish all of the athletes representing their countries the best and that at the very least they win or lose with the best effort they are capable of, that’s what it’s all about, and of course whatever gigs their agents can grab for them as well.
New York Yankees -170 vs. Boston Red Sox 4:05 PM EST
So the average number of wins to be the fifth best record in the American League is 89 wins so when looking at who is still in it and who isn’t still in it, look at how many gams they have left in a 162 game season and what they need to go to get to or beat that number and you will see just how in or out of it they are. Kind of changes your perspective on what kind of run some of these teams would need to go on to make it. I don’t see too many of these laggards having the ability to win 70 percent fo their remaining games.
