BlackJack’s Friday MLB and CFB Bets: A Gift for Jacob DeGrom

Sep 21, 2018 12:00 PM EDT
  • BlackJack Fletcher is all over Friday's diverse betting card, with two MLB picks and a late-night college football play.
  • He's riding Jacob DeGrom in a great spot and has a good feeling on USC-Washington State.

We have an interesting card of games ahead of us today, team. We have a full slate of baseball games, with some college football sprinkled in.

But this isn’t boring college football. This is good stuff tonight. We have some competitive games involving UCF, FAU, Penn State and USC.

So the question is, what is our plan of attack? What are we going to do to assure victory? What are we going to play and win?

Well wait no more friends, here we go.

New York Mets (-143) at Washington Nationals

Neither of these teams has anything left to play for this season, as both fell short of expectations. The Mets, however, do have Cy Young contender Jacob deGrom on the mound tonight.

When deGrom pitches, we always look at the first five innings under. Those totals have been at 3.5 runs for the last several months, but today we get a gift at 4.5 and we’re all over it.

Look for deGrom to finish his season strong.

The pick: First 5 Innings Under 4.5

Philadelphia Phillies at Atlanta Braves (-135)
