How to Bet Day One of October Madness
Today is the amuse bouche for what is going to be a three-week baseball bonanza. While there are only four games today, tomorrow features eight games basically starting on the hour from noon to 10. This is going to be MLB's version of March Madness. As such. you know we'll have plenty of acton every day. We have some general thoughts on how this will all play out, but we have found when you make public long-term predictions, your judgement can get clouded and you lose sight of the trees for the forrest.
So check back to the site over the next month for our daily MLB playoff wagers.
With that being said, let's pick today's games.
HOU (+150) @ MIN - Greinke and all of that playoff experience in an underdog role. We LOVE getting any juice in essentially a coin toss game.
CWS (-120) @ OAK - Take Giolito and a top 10 hitting Pale Hose squad vs. a rookie and a below average offense.
CLE/NYY - OVER 6.5 - Two of the best pitchers in baseball, but the Yankees have the best offense and the Indians have been much better after the sad start to the season. This one could go over in the 9th, so hang on loosely, but don't let go.
