Gambling Guinea’s MLB Slate- 6/16: After a strong 2-1 on Monday, nothing tickled my fancy for the Tuesday slate. Looking at Wednesday’s plays, there’s a few things on the radar to back for a successful betting night. Let’s roll. Athletics ML -121 (MGM): Don’t look now, but the 5th best record in the MLB and 3rd in the American League belongs to the inspiration of Moneyball. The A’s, on a 5-game win streak, appear to be hitting their stride right
Gambling Guinea’s MLB Slate- 6/14: After enjoying a delightful 8-3 total last week, I am looking forward to another week of identifying the best plays of the day. Without further ado, here we go! Tyler Glasnow U8.5 K’s -112 (FanDuel): White Sox F5 +108 (FanDuel): An unstoppable force meets an immovable object.

Gambling Guinea’s MLB Slate- 6/11: Max Scherzer O8.5 K’s -118 (FanDuel): Mad Max Scherzer still resides as one of the best pitchers in the MLB. He, like Tyler Glasnow and Jacob Degrom, is on the short list of pitchers I circle my calendar on every week in hopes of eclipsing a strikeout total prop bet. My old adage; give the benefit of the doubt to the power arms.
Miami Marlins Run Line -1.5 EVEN (Draft Kings): A Miami Marlins team that had displayed so much promise early on in the season came crashing down to Earth like the meteorite that killed the dinosaurs and flattened the world (probably what Kyrie Irving believes).

New York Mets F5 -0.5 +104 (Fan Duel): The New York Metropolitans have been hanging in there despite a plethora of injuries to key members. With a slight lead in the NL East division, New York is finding ways to win ball games. That also includes their 26-21 first five record on the year.

Shane Bieber U8.5 K’s -155 (Draft Kings): Where art thou, Shane Bieber? A Greek tragedy turn ofevents has transformed the AUTOMATIC strikeout over pitcher into amajor liability. Bieber coming into the season was a penciled in doubledigit punch out artist each time out. Since that fateful 5th inning inKansas City back on May 5, Bieber has been a shell of himself, mostly inthe K department. Aside from an outlier 12 strikeout outing against Detroit,the reigning AL Cy Young winner has
Jacob DeGrom U10.5K’s vs. Boston Red Sox -115 (MGM): One of the most exciting pitchers to ever grace this long and historical game, DeGrom has continued his first ballot Hall of Fame trajectory in 2021, as he sits at 2-1 with a 0.31 ERA and 50 strikeouts in 29 innings. We are running out of superlatives to say about this guy at this point. Following up a complete game 15 strikeout shutout vs. the Nationals, he squares off against the
