I’d been waiting for my first under bet of the season with Kyle Gibson in it for some time — a big-time Zylbert Guy — so I’m happy it delivered. However, we have a vintage James Shields performance to mostly thank. Let’s try to keep the strong run going through Thursday and into the weekend.
2018 MLB Over/Under Betting Record: 54-32-2, +18.5 units
Yesterday’s Result: Twins-White Sox Under 9, Gibson vs. Shields (WIN)
*Each bet graded as if it were to win 1 unit
Oakland Athletics @ Detroit Tigers | O/U: 9
1:10 p.m. ET
Probable Pitchers: Sean Manaea (7-6, 3.40 ERA) vs. Michael Fulmer (3-6, 4.17 ERA)
Oddsmakers curiously keep serving up these softball first-half-of-the-season, daytime unders with Fulmer. Well, I’ll gladly keep catching them, since I enter today 4-0 on the year on over/unders involving the Tigers’ right-hander.
All have happened in the first half of the season and during the day, which is significant considering Fulmer’s glaring splits.
