Max’s Sports Bet Picks for 8/31/21

Sports Bet Picks for 8/31/21

COL (-127) at TEX (117)

Pitchers: A. Gomber (ERA: 4.43 – Road ERA: 6.19 – Avg. ML: 130) vs. J. Lyles (ERA: 5.95 – Home ERA: 5.6 – Avg. ML: 157)

Pick: Bet $10 TEX

Notes: Texas got the win yesterday and it was their 2nd straight win in a row. Can they make it to 3? With Colorado in town, it could be possible. The Rockies’ ace, Austin Gomber, is not an ace on the road this year – posting a 6.19 ERA. And in general, Gomber is in a bit of a slump – giving up 3 or more runs in less than 5 innings over 4 of his last 5 starts.

Jordan Lyles has not had a very good year and is coming off a terrible previous start. But I still like Texas to grab a win today. $10 bet on the Rangers.

 

CHC (147) at MIN (-161)

Pitchers: Z. Davies (ERA: 5.15 – Road ERA: 4.94 – Avg. ML: 115) vs. J. Gant (ERA: 4.46 – Home ERA: 4.83 – Avg. ML: 123)

Pick: Bet $10 MIN

Notes: The Twins are in last place in the AL Central and a lot of that has to do with their terrible play on the road this season. At home? Not that bad. And they get a home series against a Cubs team that is 19 games under .500 on the road and who have lost 6 of their last 10 games.

Former Cardinal, John Gant, will get the start for the Twins. He’s gone back and forth between starter, opener and reliever this year. So not sure what the plan is for him today. Still, he’s pitched on par with Zach Davies. And the Twins bats are definitely better than this depleted Cubs team. So I like them to nab a win today.

$10 bet on Minnesota.

 

NYY (-135) at LAA (125)

Pitchers: J. Taillon (ERA: 4.35 – Road ERA: 5.4 – Avg. ML: -129) vs. J. Barria (ERA: 4.62 – Home ERA: 2.93 – Avg. ML: 139)

Pick: Bet $10 NYY

Notes: The Yankees were baseball’s hottest team but a 3-game losing streak has them 8 games back of Tampa in the AL East and feeling lucky that the Red Sox can’t seem to win right now. The Yankees lost the first game in this series yesterday but I like them to bounce back today.

Jameson Taillon will look to bounce back from a shitty previous start in Oakland last week as he matches up against Jaime Barria. Barria has not pitched well recently and could allow the Yankees’ bats to come alive today.

I think New York gets back to their winning ways today. $10 bet on the Yankees.
