HOT Games – 4/24/2018
Tampa Bay Rays @ Baltimore Orioles
The Rays face off against the Orioles tonight, and if we don’t see a delay in this one, we could get some nice value on the Rays. Their odds to win are at -105, and after an impressive last outing from Jake Faria, we should be close to believing that the Rays might be able to pull off an interesting upset tonight. The Orioles can’t seem to figure out any consistent offense, although they do have big bats that can scare any pitcher, here is to hoping Faria’s confidence outweighs his fear of Manny Machado.
Bold Prediction: Rays win 5-4
Miami Marlins @ Los Angeles Dodgers
The Marlins are the farthest thing from being good and the Dodgers, although extremely inconsistent, are a playoff team in most eyes. Kenta Maeda will take the mound and has had a good start to the season, facing off against a Marlins team that will most likely only apply pressure with 3 left-handed hitters in the lineup. Dillon Peters gets the call for the Marlins, and expect the Dodgers to take full advantage of Peters, a lefty pitcher, who will have every battle challenge him.
Bold Prediction: Dodgers win 6-2
San Antonio Spurs @ Golden State Warriors
The Warriors really let one escape in Game 4 in San Antonio. They certainly looked very lazy out there, and thought the game was going to come easy to them as games 1-3 did. The Spurs showed some fight in San Antonio, but with the Warriors returning home, expect there to be an added aggression by the Warriors, who hate losing. Vegas has the spread at -11 for GSW, and honestly Vegas might just have it too low. It is expected that the Warriors will get out to a quick lead and just blow the top off of this popsicle stand at home.
Bold Prediction: Warriors win and cover…120-100
