Free MLB Pick 7/16/22 Mariners vs Rangers

Even though I realize the Mariners are playing outstanding baseball and that’s why they’ve won 12 straight games, you’re getting a great deal on the Rangers for that very reason.

After giving up four earned runs in his last two starts, Mariners starter Logan Gilbert hasn’t gone past six innings since May.

Based on the advanced statistics and numbers, I would take the Rangers to cover.

THE PICK: RANGERS ML (+118)

Bridges likely to never play again, and rightfully so

Bridges likely to never play again, and rightfully so

Jeff Taylor pictured above

Jeffrey Taylor received a 24-game suspension for domestic violence in 2014, which is the longest in NBA history to this day.

He earned it by doing the following:

“According to the NBA press release, Taylor and the woman got into an argument after a night of heavy drinking, which prompted other hotel guests to summon security.

Then it escalated, so Taylor pushed her into the corridor. She then fell to the ground and hit her head on a different door, causing her to become unconscious.

Taylor also slapped her arm and punched a hole in the wall near his hotel room, according to the press statement he sent.

As reported by the police, the woman received scratches and a bump on her head, but did not seek medical attention.

Miles is in a similar boat, but much worst. This isn’t tied to binge drinking. Also this was his wife, not his girlfriend,

Among other things, he is accused of breaking her nose, wrist, and choking her. (which is a felony itself).

Not to mention, it’s 2022. His case involves his wife posting the photos on social media for the entire world to see.

A disturbing video of his son’s facetime discussion is at the heart of this case as well, and it’s a tough watch to say the least.

The situation for Miles Bridges is far more serious.

Cancel culture wasn’t nearly as prevalent in 2014 as well.

Certainly Miles Bridges will miss the entire 2022-2023 NBA season, and he probably will be in prison instead of the NBA for a pretty long time.

Potential Disaster on the Horizon Days before MLB All-Star Game

Potential Disaster on the Horizon Days before MLB All-Star Game

Just days before the MLB All-Star game, concession workers at Dodger Stadium have threatened to go on strike. In a news release Monday, it was announced that 99% of the employees were in favor of going on strike at any moment. Yikes.

A strike could pose a huge problem for Dodger Stadium as it is days away from its first All-Star Game in 42 years. Dodger Stadium employs nearly 1,500 food servers, bartenders, suite attendants, cooks and dishwashers. Unite Here Local 11, a union representing the concession workers, has not provided specifics on the workers’ demands but hopes to negotiate a fair new union contract.

A fan at an iconic “Dodger Dog” concession stand.

Unite Here Local 11’s co-president, Susan Minato, wrote in a statement, “Stadium workers are proud of the role they play to bring fans the best game experience possible. They are the backbone of our tourism and sports industry, yet many struggle to stay housed and to make ends meet. They often live with economic uncertainty because the quality of jobs vary stadium to stadium. No worker should have to continue living like this.”

Freddie Freeman

Minato makes a valid point. Without concession workers, the upcoming All-Star game weekend is going to be a disaster. Hopefully, Levy Restaurants, the Chicago-based company that employs the concession workers, will do what is right so the game can go on.

Phillies vs Cardinals Free MLB Pick 7/11/22

The Cardinals are looking for a split in this four-game series and I like their chances. In terms of defensive runs saved (-21), Philly is ranked 28th, while the Cards are tied for seventh place in the league (+30).

With a low-scoring game expected, take the better defensive team as a home underdog. After the game, the Phillies will depart to Canada as well. Also, the injury of MVP hopeful Bryce Harper certainly matters too.

THE PICK: STL ML (+105)

Trade talk over NBA star only lasted 20 minutes

Trade talk over NBA star only lasted 20 minutes

Trade negotiations between the Atlanta Hawks and Utah Jazz for Rudy Gobert lasted around twenty minutes. Originally, there were rumors the Atlanta Hawks would be acquiring Gobert in a package built around Clint Capela. When push came to shove, the Hawks were not about to throw all Minnesota did to Utah in exchange. The Hawks, still hopeful to acquire disgruntled superstar, Kevin Durant, never really entertained the idea of a trade for Gobert. Capela remains a Hawk despite Minnesota’s rumored interest in him.

The Utah Jazz traded three-time defensive player and all-star, Rudy Gobert, to the Minnesota Timberwolves in twenty minutes proving to be one of the fastest NBA trade negotiations of all time. Three unprotected first-round picks, a pick swap, 2022 22nd-overall pick Walker Kessler along with four other players is what it took to cement the trade to Minnesota for Gobert.

Talks between Atlanta and Minnesota proved to be a rumor that didn’t make sense to onlookers. During his podcast titled “Please Don’t Aggregate This,” Andy Larson of the Salt Lake Tribune said, “From what I hear, the Atlanta conversations about Rudy Gobert took about 20 minutes is all.” Bleacher Report’s host, Jake Fischer, agreed with Larson saying he “never thought those were going very far.”

Free MLB Pick 7/7/22: Cardinals @ Braves

By: OOSSportsbook

7/7/22

Free MLB Pick 7/7/22: Cardinals @ Braves

The St. Louis Cardinals & Atlanta Braves will square off once again at Truist Park on Thursday evening.

The Braves have won the first three games of this series too, and hoist a 49-34 overall record and are closing down on the New York Mets in the National League East, a theme we have seen quite often throughout the years.

Credit: Curtis Compton / Curtis.Compton@

Meanwhile, St Louis has a 44-40 overall record and a good roster, but they have dropped their last four consecutive games.

The Cardinals have scored just four runs in their last four games, and two of those games were shutouts.

The Cardinals’ batting average is 4.66, which ranks them 8th in the MLB, while the Braves currently have the 4th best run average in baseball this year, averaging a very respectable 4.77 runs per game.

To date, Atlanta’s pitching staff has been the most impressive aspect of this series thus far and is one of the main reasons this team looked lifeless, and now they look like the champs again.

When it comes to scoring runs, the Braves are 11th in the league at 4.06 runs per contest.

Matthew Liberatore, the Cardinals’ starting pitcher tonight, has a 2-1 record and a 5.56 ERA.

He lasted just 2.2 innings in his last start against the Phillies, allowing seven hits and five runs. For the most part, Liberatore has been subpar this season for the Cards rotation to this point.

Strider, the Braves’ starting pitcher, with a 4-2 record and a 2.87 ERA. He lasted six innings against the Reds, allowing only one hit and one run.

The Cardinals have lost all six of their previous Thursday games (0-6).

When facing the teams from Central Division, the Atlanta Braves have also gone an almost perfect 5-1 against them.

Also, ATL has gone 4-0 in their previous four games against the spread.

Yesterday’s highlights from the Braves shutout W

In this series, the Cardinals have struggled to score, and that will be a problem in this game as well.

Despite having a 2.87 ERA, Strider’s latest outing saw him allow just one hit and one run. 

The Pick: BRAVES -1.5

Strider is going to make it difficult for the Cards to plate runs. Ultimately, I strongly believe that the Braves will be too much for the Cardinals once again today.

The Donovan Mitchell Situation: What we know as of now

The Donovan Mitchell Situation: What we know as of now

Mitchell, 25, has been a star since being drafted 13th overall in 2017. Mitchell has averaged 23.9 points, 4.5 assists, 4.2 rebounds, and 1.3 steals throughout his five seasons with the Jazz.

These numbers explain why Mitchell is a prized asset. Past speculation about his future has also generated more interest into the topic. Here is a timeline of what has transpired, who is claiming what, and everything we know up to this point about the situation:

A huge Woj bomb, this helped fuel the speculation even more after the Gobert trade. Will the Jazz rebuild?
Almost all league executives seem to think Spida is on this way out.

Hoop Central is a very solid source, who is virtually never wrong. A must follow on twitter for basketball junkies.
I’m sure letting go of two of his closer friends wasn’t the best of ideas if they want to bring him back.
NBA Beat writer Andy Blarsen believes he may or may not be traded.
Valid point from a valid source.
Nobody really knows for sure.

Atlanta Comes back and walks it off vs Giants, moving to 17-3 in their last 20 games

By: OutOfSightSports

Braves walk-off Giants, moving to 17-3 in their last 20 games

The Braves somehow were able to top off Orlando Arcia’s walk-off single just two nights later. Braves Starter Charlie Morton allowed 2 solo home runs off the bats Mike Yastrzemski and Darin Ruf in seven innings pitched. The Giants scored another run off A.J. Minter in the ninth before the Braves’ best inning of the entire season.

Charlie Morton must have felt rejuvenated to say the least, after the Braves’ second walk-off win in three days.

“I guess it was the energy and the sense that the guys could smell blood in the water right there,” Morton told a reporter who asked what he felt as he watched the final inning unfold.

Dansby Swanson’s homer, Marcell Ozuna’s smart baserunning, and Adam Duvall’s walk-off single gave the Braves a 4-3 win over the Giants on Wednesday night at Truist Park.

Atlanta was 2-24 when trailing after six innings, and 0-26 when trailing after seven or eight until tonight. They took advantage of a start that suggested Morton might be rolling like he did last year.

The Braves are looking like the defending World Series champions once again, thanks to their recent play. The club has won 17 of their last 20 games and are only a slim 4 1/2 games behind the Mets in the NL East with a lot of baseball to be played still

San Fransisco Giants reliever, Jake McGee, had Swanson down in the count 0-2 but Dansby was able to fight back into a full count, and then proceed to launch a fastball over the center-field wall. Ozuna then hit a clutch opposite-field single. Thanks to some heads up baserunning, Ozuna was able to tag up and advance on Matt Olson’s long fly ball to centerfield. Catcher William Contreras then went on to tie it with an RBI single.

“[Ozuna’s] play was one of the biggest ones because it got him in scoring position,” Dansby Swanson said after the game.

Morton must feel so much better than when he had a 6.85 ERA after his first five horrid starts. His early struggles may have been caused by the leg fracture he sustained in Game 1 of the World Series last year,

Morton wasn’t missing bats and his curveball wasn’t too effective early on. With that being said, he was able to complete the game by creatively mixing up pitches, a strategy he has been using to get to where he is now, with double-digit strikeouts in two of his last three starts.

In 20 innings pitched over his last three starts, Morton has struck out 32 batters and only issued one walk. In his last two starts, the righty went seven innings both times.

Swing-and-miss? Morton has induced more than 10 whiffs twice before June. In all four June starts, he’s struck out at least 10 batters.

Morton had this to say about the club and their recent play,

“I think the guys are in a really good spot, no matter of who we are playing,” Morton said. “There’s good momentum right now in the clubhouse.”

The defending champs are rolling without Freeman now, slowing climbing their way up everyone’s power rankings and don’t look like they plan on

Game 5 NBA Finals Warriors vs Celtics Preview

6/12/22

Game 5 NBA Finals Warriors vs Celtics Preview

After a 2-2 deadlock in the series, the NBA Finals return to Chase Center on Monday for Game 5. Both the Warriors and the Celtics have not lost back-to-back games this postseason. Even though the series has been decided by double digits in each game — the Warriors’ 10-point victory in Game 4 was the closest so far . With that being said, the series has been much closer than that, as demonstrated by the 2-2 tie right now. As a matter of fact, the Warriors have outscored the Celtics by only one point (422-421) through the first four games of this year’s NBA“` Finals.

Thanks to their Game Four victory Friday, the Warriors have reclaimed home-court advantage in the NBA Finals. The Warriors can and most definitely will take advantage of whatever they can get with three games left in the series and each club two wins away from an NBA Championship, as the Dubs have gone 10-1 at home these playoffs. The series will be determined in the second half if Monday’s Game 5 follows the pattern of the first four. The team that has won the second half of the first four games has won each game of the series. Each of the Warriors’ first four games ended with a third-quarter win, and they have a plus minus of 49 in those quarters, while the Celtics won Games 1 and 3 with overpowering fourth-quarter performances.

This is shaping up to be the biggest game in the history of the Chase Center so far.

Despite a close game, the Warriors were able to pull away late with a 17-3 run to win Game 4 by 10 in TD Garden. Wiggins had a career-high 16 rebounds to go along with 17 points.
Stephen Curry has been unstoppable so far in this series. Since the start of the Finals, he has averaged 34.3 points per game while shooting more than 50% from the field and more than 50% from three-point range. If he continues to play at this level, this will be Curry’s best NBA Finals performance and the third best playoff series of his entire career. With a sore left foot, Curry was able to log a team postseason-high of 41 minutes in Game 4 and had one of the biggest games of his career, which should ease any fears about his ankle.
However, Andrew Wiggins and Kevon Looney have been steady contributors in this series as well, albeit quieter. Jayson Tatum’s All-NBA offense is a dauntingtask for Wiggins. Just as he did in the Western Conference Finals against Luka Doncic, Wiggins is making Tatum earn every bucket he has made this round. Tatum is averaging 22.3 points per game these finals and is shooting a mediocre 34.1 percent from the field, 17 percent less than what he averaged in his first three series of these NBA playoffs. Offensively, Wiggins has carried the Warriors a couple times, particularly early in games. He has been eating the glass this postseason, easily rebounding the basketball better than he ever has in his career, and he had eight straight Warriors points in the first quarter of Friday’s victory.

Wiggins and Looney are each averaging 8.5 rebounds per game in this series, which is tied for the most on the team. Looney has been a constant presence for the Dubs, whether he’s starting or coming off the bench. When it comes to the NBA Finals, no one has a better plus-minus rating than Looney’s (+9.0 per game) because of his consistent postseason play, which has included everything from finishing at the rim to setting screens to rim protection.

When things go wrong for Boston, they always find a way to get back up and play better the next time around. As of this postseason, Boston has gone 7-0 while coming off a loss, and 8-3 away from home. Jaylen Brown and Jaylen Tatum lead the way for the Celtics, each averaging 22.3 points in this series. Additionally, Boston forwards Marcus Smart, Derrick White, and Al Horford have all had their moments during these year’s Finals. Robert Williams III has made an impact on the defensive side of the ball, sending shots away pretty often. When it comes to blocking shots, he’s second to only Kevon Looney among players who play at least 15 minutes each game in this series, with an average plus-minus of (+5.0). The C’s will need to continue to be top road team in postseason to have a chance of winning the championship and that’s exactly what they have done so far.

The Nationals are on a 10-game road trip and started it off well winning the first 3 out of 4 games on the trip, after that, they have managed to lose their last 3 games. RHP Josiah Gray will take the mound for DC, and the right-hander struggled vs the Rockies at home last week 5 ER, 3 H, 4 BB in 5 ⅓ innings. I’m expecting the Rockies to hit the ball pretty well tonight and take down the struggling Nationals.

The Pick: Colorado Rockies ML (-177)
