Max’s Sports Bet Picks for 7/9/21


Sports Bet Picks for 7/9/21

OAK (-132) at TEX (121)

Pitchers: C. Irvin (ERA: 3.64 – Road ERA: 2.61 – Avg. ML: -103) vs. J. Lyles (ERA: 5.22 – Home ERA: 5.61 – Avg. ML: 154)

Pick: Bet $10 OAK

Notes: Cole Irvin has been pretty damn good on the road this season and the A’s will try to continue on their momentum of a solid win over the Astros yesterday. The Rangers just lost 2 of 3 at home to the Tigers – and Jordan Lyles on the mound does not instill much confidence that they can get on a winning streak. $10 bet on Oakland.


CIN (-102) at MIL (-106)

Pitchers: W. Miley (ERA: 3.09 – Road ERA: 3 – Avg. ML: 103) vs. E. Lauer (ERA: 3.94 – Home ERA: 4.5 – Avg. ML: -102)

Pick: Bet $10 CIN

Notes: I’ll get the Eric Lauer hate out of the way so Panther can’t talk shit on me being wrong about something. The amount of shit that he’s wrong on yet he acts like Skip Bayless over here and pretends like it never happened.

Anyway, yes, at the time I made the statement, Eric Lauer was pitching amazingly and had stats on par with the other aces on Milwaukee. He then had a string of bad starts that dropped him down for sure. But has now gone 6+ innings in his last start and only given up 1 earned run in that span. The area for concern is his WHIP that will lead to some runs given up at some point.

The Reds have the sticks to do that and Wade Miley has been a dependable pitcher all season for them. So Cincinnati should get the win. $10 bet on the Reds.


LAA (-123) at SEA (113)

Pitchers: A. Cobb (ERA: 4.74 – Road ERA: 8.08 – Avg. ML: -107) vs. M. Gonzales (ERA: 7.03 – Home ERA: 6.32 – Avg. ML: 123)

Pick: Bet $10 SEA

Notes: Man, I hit on the Mariners yesterday at home over the Yankees and here they are again. At home. With a plus line. Against a team that is a little worse than the Yankees. Which is not so much a compliment on the Angels as it is an indictment on how disappointing the Yankees season has been so far. Anaheim is coming off an impressive series over the Red Sox and have won 4 of 5 games. But they struggle on the road and I think Seattle nabs the win today.

$10 bet on the Mariners.



KC (126) at CLE (-137)

Pitchers: B. Keller (ERA: 6.56 – Road ERA: 5.76 – Avg. ML: 128) vs. T. McKenzie (ERA: 6.32 – Home ERA: 9.43 – Avg. ML: 113)

Pick: Lean CLE


PHI (111) at BOS (-120)

Pitchers: V. Velasquez (ERA: 4.39 – Road ERA: 4.59 – Avg. ML: 108) vs. G. Richards (ERA: 5.03 – Home ERA: 7.15 – Avg. ML: -101)

Pick: Lean PHI

Pick: TBD
