Best valued ODD: Detroit to win tonight
Believe me, I would love to be wrong on this game tonight, I respect the hell out of the Athletics franchise, and did pick them to win the Series, before it started.
I have put myself in a position of strength, because I bet the A’s to win the Series and the World Series, at high odds, so this bet is purely a hedge.
I think the Athletics missed a golden chance to sew this series up on the game Tuesday.
When I initially forecasted this matchup, I was not sure that Verlander would be his dominant self either.
I am shocked at the ODDS offered here. -110 for the Detroit is a super odd to wager on. They were -150 Favorites to start the series, and now that they have forced a Game #5, they have a massive experience advantage on the Pitching matchup.
I think the world of Bob Melvin, however I think that starting the Rookie over Bartolo Colon is not wise. The big 40 Year Old man has several years of Post Season experience, and should have been throwing tonight.
I can see Colon piggybacking this game anyway, so lets see how it plays out, however it should have been flip flopped.
Sonny Gray has great hit and miss stuff, yet I think that it is a different scenario when you are put into a do or die situation.
Odds To Win the NLCS
Los Angeles -140 vs St. Louis Cardinals +120
