The fact Joe Duffy’s Picks is outperforming the rest of the industry is nothing new. It’s par for the course. Now we are even outperforming ourselves. We win again. Of course the AL Central Underdog Game of the Year proves to be money in the bank. Why is Joe Duffy’s Picks the best? See the video below.
DETROIT (RYAN +125) Cleveland (Bauer)
AL Central Underdog of the Year
We have an angle that says to bet on divisional dogs under specific situations that is a staggering +186.5. Trevor Bauer is one of those pitchers who is much better on the road, but is now pitching at home. Despite an uncanny road ERA of 1.10, he is at home where his ERA is 5.40. Though his batting average against is .266 on the road, at home it is scary .331. Kyle Ryan has a .750 WHIP in two starts.
We have said time and time again, sharps use splits mostly where a team or pitcher does not clearly pitch or play better at home. Put the killer system on top of it and it is certainly a Wise Guy.
CUBS (WADA +170) LA Dodgers (Kershaw)
LA is 2-5 the last seven. The Cubs are 9-5 the last 14. Clayton Kershaw has a 4.27 road ERA and LA is -3.1 with him on the highway. The home team is 9-5 in his starts. LA is 3-8 off win, 3-9 to teams with a winning record, 1-8 road to teams with a winning record. Cubs 9-2 home versus an opponent to teams with a losing road record.
WHITE SOX (DANKS +130) Minnesota (Milone)
We have an angle that says to bet on divisional dogs under specific situations that is a staggering +186.5. The Sox have turned things around, winning two straight off a big slump and beating the team with the best ROI in MLB in consecutive games.
Going with a team averaging .35 or fewer stolen bases per game versus an opponent with a starting pitcher whose WHIP is 1.000 or less in his last three starts is +125.1 units.
HOUSTON (OBERHOLTZER +113) LA Angles (Santiago)
We have an angle that says to bet on divisional dogs under specific situations that is a staggering +186.5. Houston is 6-2 the last eight. They are 4-1 with Brett Oberholtzer for +3.2 units.
