Max’s Sports Bet Picks for 9/2/21


Sports Bet Picks for 9/2/21

PHI (-156) at WSH (143)

Pitchers: A. Nola (ERA: 4.42 – Road ERA: 5.28 – Avg. ML: -127) vs. P. Espino (ERA: 4.53 – Home ERA: 4.1 – Avg. ML: 133)

Pick: Bet $10 WSH

Notes: Well, I was on this one yesterday and lost a bit of value since then. So almost pushed me out of not betting it. But there’s not much going on today so I will stick with it. A day later and Aaron Nola won’t magically turn back into his former self, right?

August was rough for Nola. After seeing great progress in July, his ERA jumped back up and he only managed to get out of the 5th inning once. At least he gets a meager offense, right?

Well, looking at the last 30 days, the Nats are 11th in batting average with a .253 team average. The Phillies are 24th with a .233. Yes, worse than the Mets. Philly has still managed to score more runs than Washington but it’s not that significant. The Nats had one of the better offenses in the league before the trade deadline. So they have dropped off, but its not terrible.

Like the fucking Mets.

So yeah, it’s less value than yesterday, but still value.

$10 bet on Washington.


ATL (-164) at COL (135)

Pitchers: T. Toussaint (ERA: 3.83 – Road ERA: 2.32 – Avg. ML: 109) vs. C. Gonzalez (ERA: 6.2 – Home ERA: 5.58 – Avg. ML: 158)

Pick: Bet $10 COL

Notes: Colorado at home. With a plus line. Here, take my money. Sure, they are taking on the beasts of the East. Losers of 4 of 5 games and only 37-30 on the road. And sure, they have staff ace Touki Toussaint on the mound. But I mean, come on, Colorado is 43-22 at home. They are bound to be happy to be back after a 9-game road trip the past few weeks.

Can you believe this is the first time these teams will have played all season? They have a 4-game series this weekend and then another series in Atlanta in a few weeks. So nothing we can really tell about how they matchup. But if seeing Atlanta on the road the past few weeks on their trip West is an indication, I think it will be a rough weekend for them.

$10 bet on Colorado.



OAK (-161) at DET (148)

Pitchers: F. Montas (ERA: 3.73 – Road ERA: 3.69 – Avg. ML: -109) vs. M. Manning (ERA: 5.68 – Home ERA: 3.13 – Avg. ML: 139)

Pick: Lean DET


MIL (160) at SF (-174)

Pitchers: E. Lauer (ERA: 3.24 – Road ERA: 3.2 – Avg. ML: -120) vs. L. Webb (ERA: 2.7 – Home ERA: 1.76 – Avg. ML: -101)

Pick: Lean SF


MIA (150) at NYM (-182)

Pitchers: Z. Thompson (ERA: 3.19 – Road ERA: 3.52 – Avg. ML: 138) vs. C. Carrasco (ERA: 7.01 – Home ERA: 8.36 – Avg. ML: 121)

Pick: Lean NYM


BOS (146) at TB (-159)

Pitchers: E. Rodriguez (ERA: 5.73 – Road ERA: 5.25 – Avg. ML: -119) vs. S. McClanahan (ERA: 3.38 – Home ERA: 3.48 – Avg. ML: -134)

Pick: Lean TB


PIT (150) at CHC (-175)

Pitchers: M. Keller (ERA: 6.95 – Road ERA: 4.47 – Avg. ML: 152) vs. K. Thompson (ERA: 5.87 – Home ERA: 2.5 – Avg. ML: 157)

Pick: Lean CHC


CLE (-100) at KC (-118)

Pitchers: T. McKenzie (ERA: 4.68 – Road ERA: 5.24 – Avg. ML: 117) vs. M. Minor (ERA: 5.4 – Home ERA: 5.41 – Avg. ML: 121)
