Max’s Sports Bet Picks for 6/3/22
Tampa Bay Lightning (-137) at New York Rangers (114)
Pick: Lean Tampa
Notes: Before the last game, I had said that when the Rangers offense is clicking, it’s up there as one of the best in the league.
But Jesus Christ, I didn’t think they would put up 6 on Vasilevskiy and the Lightning defense.
The Rangers demonstrated they are a dangerous team.
Especially at home.
But I’m not going to overreact just yet and fade Tampa.
This team is way too experienced to just fold up right now.
If the Rangers win decisively again today, I’ll start changing my tune.
And probably think a lot less of the Florida Panthers than I already do at the moment.
A lean on Tampa Bay.
HOU (-134) at KC (114)
Pick: Bet $10 KC
Notes: Creeping up my vulnerabilities list is the Kansas City Royals.
I readily admit that I was over eager about them this season.
And, well, they’ve sucked.
But I still find moments where I think they have a chance to win a game.
Brady Singer is on the mound today sporting his 2.49 ERA and 0.99 WHIP.
I know he’s coming off a rough start but it’s kind of why I really like him today.
The Astros have won 4 games in a row – beating shitty teams like Seattle and Oakland.
So yeah, they should be a shitty team like the Royals too.
But Urquidy has been hit hard lately and maybe KC can scratch out a few runs to support Singer.
$10 bet on KC.
ATL (-178) at COL (150)
Pick: Bet $10 COL
Notes: Remember a time when the Rockies were really good at home this season?
Yeah, it’s been a while.
Coming off a 13-6 loss to the Braves yesterday, you can understand why they are such dogs today.
But I still am wary of Atlanta at a big line like this.
And despite the Rockies’ shitty play, there’s value on them today.
Chad Kuhl and Max Fried are fairly evenly matched this season – with Fried trending in right direction.
We know he can be ace-like at times so the edge does go to him.
Still, Kuhl has had some good starts this season and I think he gives Colorado a shot today.
$10 bet on the Rockies.
BOS (-162) at OAK (136)
Pick: Bet $10 BOS
Notes: The Red Sox are still not a good team but they have played better than earlier in the season.
Still, splitting a series with the Reds and losing 3 of 5 to the Orioles is not where they imagined themselves at this point in the season.
Now they have a chance to grab some wins against an A’s team that has lost 4 of 5 and dropped to 7-20 at home.
Betting Boston at this line is a little uneasy for me and is approaching my limits of implied probability.
But its still there.
$10 bet on the Red Sox.

SF (-164) at MIA (138)
Pick: Lean SF
