BlackJack’s Saturday Plays: Bet on Astros to Bounce Back?
It’s Saturday baby, we had a nice 4-2 night yesterday to kick off the weekend and now we keep it rolling today. I’m looking squarely at the MLB diamond today, with maybe a taste of the octagon. Either way, the playing surface doesn’t matter, the arena doesn’t matter, the contest or the rules don’t matter. All that matters is that this team will win no matter what competition we are in, because we are winners. So let’s get the winning started brothers.
Detroit Tigers at Chicago White Sox (-116)
2:10 p.m. ET
This one comes down to starting pitching for me. The Tigers, while not very good, have managed to be somewhat competitive early in this season. They are going with Michael Fulmer on the mound today and I’m more optimistic with him than Lucas Giolito for the ChiSox. Also, what the White Sox do well is score runs. The game time temperature should be around 25 degrees, which makes it very difficult to hit. I think the Tigers steal one here, take the plus value and the better starter.
THE PICK: Tigers
