Stars & Stripes...
Feeling VERY patriotic today!!!
You're the bookmaker. Give me a number on this game. You have a pitcher coming in at 5-0, with a teeny 2.76 ERA, against a pitcher that is 1-3 with a bulbous 6.33 ERA. Mr. 5-0 throws for a team that is in FIRST place, and five games over .500 not including last night. Mr. 1-3 is hurling for a team that is in LAST place, seven games under .500. Mr. 5-0 is on the road, so whaddya make the price??? Keep looking down, and we're talking about the Yankees vs. the Red Sox. You probably made the number -$125 or -$130 for Mr. 5-0 huh. Well, as I hit the keyboard, the NYY are a slight -$107 fav. Shocking??? A little, but according the some contrarians, that means ya GOTTA take the Yanks. Leaning that way, but not buying a ticket.
Will buy a ticket in the NBA tonight on the Spurs -2 points over the Thunder. After blowing away Oklahoma City in game one (124-92), San Antonio played its worst game in like forever, still came within a point, and SHOULDA won if the zebras did the job they got paid to do. The visitors from Texas won both games on the road in the Memphis series, 96-87 and 116-95, so enemy turf is not a problem. Gimme half a Benjamin on the Spurs.
