Each winning team for every post season game gets a pitcher and a hitter who earn a full WOO (Who Owns October.)

And at my discretion, I award a 1/2 WOO’S to a worthy player on the losing team.

For a full explanation, click HERE

From October 10th ALCS:

Receiving 1 WOO’s

Alex Gordon got 3 hits including a broken bat 3 run double in the third and the go ahead home run in the 10th. He also made some fine defensive plays in the Royals 8-6 extra inning win in Baltimore.

Wade Davis kept the Orioles from scoring in the critical 8th and 9th innings. He faced the minimum 6 batters, striking out 4, allowing nobody to reach and struck out Cruz to end the 9th. He earned the decision in Kansas City’s 8-6 ten inning win.

Receiving 1/2 WOO’s

Ryan Flaherty got 3 hits, scored and drove in a pair with a 2 run, 2 out single in the 5th. The Orioles would come up just short as Kansas City won in 10, 8-6.

Full Disclosure Of Bets For 2014 MLB Wagers

In collaborative effort between our Chief Writer "Hunter Stokes" and I, we have guaranteed to turn a profit of no less than $650, with the more likelihood of more than that coming our way.  Not bad for a 1st year - (even though we haven't predicted the playoffs well on the prognostications side).  We always bet with the value, and not necessarily who we think is really going to win.  Besides, you can always hedge bet with a favorite team you like, once they are trailing, and you still picked them to win the Series, Rounds, Playoffs or LCS or World Series.

Okay, so at the MLB Reports, we have been tackling a different vantage point for the 2014 year.  I saw a rising number of people who want to know about gambling.

There are several factors to acknowledge here.

It is illegal for most Americans to gamble (unless you are in a state that allows it like Las Vegas).

However, Canadians are allowed to wager freely under the ‘capital gains clause;.

Still, everyone has a friend in the Desert city of Las Vegas right?  So we have been running with a theme.

I have had my main chief writer “Hunter Stokes” take a look at the odds all year. and surmise a game plan to throw some cabbage down on it.

If he couldn’t make it to Nevada (he flies there a lot, and goes about 1 per week) from Bakersfield, CA.  It is only 286 Miles, and he likes to make the trek a lot.

But if he is unable to pry himself away from his tattoo parlor, I double down on my wagers for his picks.  I am happy to have followed his selections all year. Read the rest of this entry

I am not going to preview this from an analyst angle because our “Lead Podcast Personality”  Paul Francis Sullivan ‘AKA Sully’ does a brilliant 20 minute podcast that he does daily, and he has described this matchup beautifully.

I will post the podcast at the end of the article.

Instead,  I am looking at this series as a professional handicapper sense.

Opening Odds

STL -135

SF, +115

I have to give the nod to the Giants for value on this one. If you go down the rosters, the St. Louis franchise is a smidge better on the talent level, however how can you bet against San Francisco when they have won 8 straight playoff series from 2010 – 2014.

The Giants have also won 4 of 5 games in this year’s playoff. Read the rest of this entry
