Max’s Sports Bet Picks for 8/19/21


Sports Bet Picks for 8/19/21


LAA (-113) at DET (105)

Pitchers: J. Quintana (ERA: 6.92 – Road ERA: 10.26 – Avg. ML: 107) vs. M. Manning (ERA: 6.35 – Home ERA: 3.39 – Avg. ML: 137)

Pick: Bet $10 DET

Notes: Well, Vegas gave a gift yesterday and I didn’t take it. Ohtani looked incredible yesterday and the Angels got another win in this series. Anaheim will go for the sweep today but they don’t have an ace on the mound today as Jose Quintana puts his 10.26 road ERA on the line against Matt Manning. Manning has struggled this season too, but has a much better home ERA.

Both teams will head to the airport after the game as Anaheim heads to Cleveland and Detroit heads to Toronto. With the travel day, maybe some players sit but wit such short travel destinations, it seems unlikely.

I don’t think the Tigers get swept today. So a $10 bet on Detroit.


SEA (-159) at TEX (146)

Pitchers: C. Flexen (ERA: 3.85 – Road ERA: 5.57 – Avg. ML: 131) vs. S. Howard (ERA: 4.86 – Home ERA: 6.43 – Avg. ML: 118)

Pick: Bet $10 TEX

Notes: Seattle has won the first two games in this series but it has been close. The Rangers managed to get 2 of 3 at home from Oakland and I just can’t see them being swept by Seattle here. I mean, I can, because the Rangers suck, but I also can’t because Seattle is a sub .500 team on the road and has a lot of luck on their side.

I was on Texas in the first game of the series with Spencer Howard slated to start. Taylor Hearn got the start instead. Howard certainly has not lived up to ace-like potential but I’m banking on him not totally sucking today.

$10 bet on Texas.
