Max’s Sports Bet Picks for 7/19/21


Sports Bet Picks for 7/19/21


BOS (118) at TOR (-128)

Pitchers: N. Pivetta (ERA: 4.37 – Road ERA: 2.92 – Avg. ML: -108) vs. R. Stripling (ERA: 5.19 – Home ERA: 5.12 – Avg. ML: 108)

Pick: Bet $10 TOR

Notes: If you were to look at run differential on the year, you would expect the Blue Jays to be in 1st in the East. But they sit in 3rd place – 6 games behind the Red Sox and only a game up on the Yankees. Toronto kicked off the second half by sweeping Texas while the Red Sox lost 2 of 3 to the aforementioned Yankees.

The latest news is that the Blue Jays will be allowed back in Canada soon – just in time for a big home stand at the end of July and into August. That could be a difference maker for the nomad Blue Jays. They have a chance in this series and then again at the beginning of next week to make up ground on the Red Sox.

And I think it starts today with a win. $10 bet on the Blue Jays.


CHC (-111) at STL (103)

Pitchers: A. Mills (ERA: 3.93 – Road ERA: 4.68 – Avg. ML: 119) vs. J. Woodford (ERA: 0 – Home ERA: 0 – Avg. ML: 0)

Pick: Bet $10 CHC

Notes: The Cubs haven’t completely waived the white flag on the season but it will be coming soon. Chicago took 2 of 3 from Arizona but dropped the last game yesterday before flying out to St. Louis to play a Cardinals team that somehow took 2 of 3 from the Giants.

Chicago is just 18-30 on the road this season but they have played the Cardinals very well this season. Despite a bloated ERA and WHIP, Alec Mills has managed to get a winning record this year. And I think he adds another today. $10 bet on the Cubs.


SF (111) at LAD (-120)

Pitchers: K. Gausman (ERA: 1.73 – Road ERA: 1.36 – Avg. ML: -114) vs. T. Gonsolin (ERA: 2.17 – Home ERA: 2.41 – Avg. ML: -172)

Pick: Bet $10 LAD

Notes: The Giants sit only 1 game ahead of the Dodgers for the NL West right now and a winning series by the Dodgers here would push LA back into first place. LA dropped their last game in Colorado yesterday – thankfully for me since I was in the Rockies for 3 straight games – but they won the series. I would like to say that LA is playing good ball lately but that’s easy to say when you beat up on the Rockies and Diamondbacks.

Still, I expect some regression from the Giants in the second half. Gausman has been sensational but don’t discount what Gonsolin has done since coming back from his injury. He might not be going deep into games – but he’s giving some quality longer opens. Maybe he can push it to 6 innings today and give the Dodgers a win.

$10 bet on LA.



MIN (200) at CWS (-221)

Pitchers: G. Jax (ERA: 10.8 – Road ERA: 10.8 – Avg. ML: 111) vs. L. Lynn (ERA: 2 – Home ERA: 1.68 – Avg. ML: -133)
