Friday, May 5, 2023 Baltimore Orioles vs. Atlanta Braves (MLB) - 7:20 PM EDT Premium Pick Pick: Money Line: -198 Atlanta Braves Rating: 9* Mike's Switching Gears 3-Inning Master Play (PUSH) It's no secret that the O's Dean Kremer has been Mr. Inconsistent this season turning in a a ballooned 6.67 ERA. Even though I've been a Baltimore fan since I was 4, the only way to play this one is early. Southpaw Max Fried of Atlanta has an off-the-charts 0.45 ERA after 4 starts this season. Let's tighten that twice as he's not only turning in a 0.00 ERA over his last 3 starts but is 2-0 with that same 0.00 ERA under the lights thus far. With the No Score First Inning bets taking 2 rare losses, we're shifting gears & rollin' into Atlanta to play the ATLANTA BRAVES on the ML for 3 Innings! Wednesday, May 03, 2023 New York Mets Gm2 vs. Detroit Tigers Gm2 (MLB) - 6:40 PM EDT Premium Pick Pick: Money Line: -200 New York Mets Gm2 Rating: 10* Mike's Low-Rosin Pick of the Night (LOSS) I'm banking that Mets' RHP Max Scherzer will be SUPER motivated against the Tigers in Game 2 of a DH after coming off suspension (what a crock) for having too much rosin (after being monitored) in his glove. He'll face a Detroit lineup that's hitting just .213 versus RHP overall this season. This goes nicely since Mad Max carries a nifty but getting better 3-1 record in the (NSFI) stat. The Mets should also be up for the nightcap after a 6-5 loss in the opener, especially since they spotted the Tigers a 3-0 lead after 1. Let's go to Comerica Park to play the DETROIT TIGERS-NO SCORE 1ST INNING as my 10 Star Low-Rosin Pick of the Night! Sunday, April 30, 2023 Tampa Bay Rays vs. Chicago White Sox (MLB) - 2:10 PM EDT Premium Pick Pick: Money Line: -200 Tampa Bay Rays Rating: 9* Mike's Sunday Goose-Egger Play (LOSS) The Rays have a bevy of stellar starting pitchers. They'll face a Pale Hose squad on a 10-game losing streak & have scored in Inning 1 just 29.63% of the time. Tampa Bay will come in fresh off yielding a run to the Southsiders in the 1st yesterday & rank in the top 7(74.7%) in MLB in yielding 1st-inning runs. Enter Rays' RHP Drew Rasmussen whose 4-1 in the No Score-1st Inning category & is backed behind a defense that's ranked #1 in the majors. He faces a lineup that's been struggling where they're hitting RHP'ing @ a low .231. Sure, Rasmussen's record isn't overwhelming with a 3-2 record & a 3.33 ERA. However my bottom line stresses Drew's 1-2 record & 6.00 ERA @ night fails in comparison to his jalapeno-like 2-0 record & 0.00 during day games this season. He should breathing fire after experiencing a 5-0 defeat to Houston on Tuesday night during his last start. We're heading to Guaranteed Rate Field in South Chicago to play the CHICAGO WHITE SOX-NO SCRE 1ST INNING as my 9 Star Sunday Goose-Egger Play! Kansas City Royals vs. Minnesota Twins (MLB) -2:10 PM EDT Premium Pick Pick KC No Score 1st Inning Rating: 9* Mike Sunday Afternoon Quick Pick (WIN) Let's add to my 1st selection yet another play as we look @ Sonny Gray & his masterful starts this baseball season. Gray is 3-0 & is turning in an ERA under 1. His repertoire of pitches are very strong from the onset. Let's take advantage of the pitcher & home surroundings versus a weak lineup. Take the KANSAS CITY ROYALS-NOSCORE 1ST INNING. Mike Handzelek's 2023 MLB Overall Record: 9-2 for 82%
