Winning Addict’s Premium Card Tuesday, August 16th

1) Philadelphia Phillies RL –1.5 –110 (Risk 11 units to win 10 units) 7:05 P.M. EST

This D’Backs team has won 6 straight games and looks game to upset the World Champion San Francisco Giants in the NL West.  Their pitching has been solid, and Justin Upton has been carrying this team offensively without star shortstop Stephen Drew.  However, after they are finally starting to get some national media attention, I expect a falloff starting tonight with a tough matchup against Roy Halladay and the Major League’s best Philadelphia Phillies.  Josh Collmenter has struggled lately, although he did piece together a nice start in his last outing against a terrible Houston team.  He will not find much success tonight against this very deep Phillies lineup, and I expect Roy Halladay to continue his domination of this Arizona franchise.  Halladay will go deep into the game tonight and the Phils offense will score early to support him, so don’t be bashful about laying the 1.5 runs and win a big time 10 units tonight!

2) Florida Marlins +145 (Risk 5 units to win 7.25 units) 8:40 P.M. EST

3) San Diego Padres –130 (Risk 6.5 units to win 5 units) 10:05 P.M. EST

4) Washington Nationals +118 (Risk 5 units to win 5.9 units) 7:05 P.M. EST

5) St. Louis Cardinals –140 (Risk 5.6 units to win 4 units) 7:05 P.M. EST

6) Tampa Bay Rays +145 [Game 2] (Risk 5 units to win 7.25 units) 7:10 P.M. EST

8 ) UNDER 7.5 LA Dodgers/Milwaukee [even money] (Risk 4 units to win 4 units

9) OVER 8.5 Texas/LA Angels –110 (Risk 4.4 units to win 4 units) 10:05 P.M. EST

1) Detroit Tigers -1.5 -120 (Risk 6 units to win 5 units) 7:05pm EST

This was almost the GUARANTEE PLAY but lost to the Yankees by a monitored, regulation coin toss. I’m playing it to win 5 units. However, I wouldn’t hesitate to play it to win 10 units if you practice good money management and have a healthy account. That can apply to the $2/unit player or the $200/unit player. The AL CY Young winner for this season, Justin Verlander, takes the mound for the Tigers. Verlander is 17-5, has a 2.35 ERA and an incredible .872 WHIP. Nick Blackburn (7-9, 4.36 ERA, 1.532 WHIP) starts for the Twins. It just gets worse: Blackburn is 5-5, 5.32 ERA and has an inflated 1.640 WHIP in 12 road starts. Verlander is 2-0 with a 0.53 ERA in his last two starts against the Twins. I have at least 3 more supporting stats if you are not convinced yet. Okay, I tell you one more. Pure technical and from my proprietary software.  Detroit -1.5, 61.3%. Take the Tigers -1.5 and pick up an easy 5 units at a bargain price!

2) Milwaukee Brewers -163 (Risk 6.52 units to win 4 units) 8:10pm EST

Yes, I’m on the Brewers again tonight. It kills me not to play for 5 or more units on this game but this will be the 3rd win on my card tonight and why not save a little money since were going to win. Gallardo takes the bump for the best home team in MLB. I will not throw the same angle at you that I did last night…it still applies though. Gallardo is 9-2 with a 2.12 ERA at home. The Dodgers counter with Billingsley and he hasn’t been a good road pitcher this year sporting a less than stellar 5.53 ERA. In his last three starts it’s worse…6.19. The Brewers are 17-4 most recently vs losing teams and seemed destined to win the NL Central. My system software indicates the Brewers have a  57.3% chance of winning the RL -1.5. Pay the extra juice on the ML for the win.

3) Cincinnati Reds –120 (Risk 6 units to win 5 units) 7:05 P.M. EST

4) Oakland Athletics -128 (Risk 12.8 units to win 10) 10:05pm EST

I have been looking at this game all day.  I have done a complete analysis with every system at my disposal.  I’ll keep this short.  Oakland plays well at home and Baltimore is not a good team, especially on the road. The pitching match up favors Oakland.  The last time I said the following we cashed big: don’t ask any questions, bet this game now to win 10 units at a great price.  I’m personally playing $200/unit.  I want the $2/unit player and every unit player below or above me on this game with me NOW! Don’t think.  Bet and WIN BIG!!!


I hope everyone is excited about the upcoming NFL season as all of us at Winning Addicts. We are burning the midnight oil preparing for a profitable season ahead.  If you hate (or like) the new rule moving kickoffs up to the 35 yd line email me at,, and let me know why you hate or like it. I’m trying to factor this change into a new system I’m working on and would like to know what you think.  Good Luck Tonight!

New York Yankees -153 (Risk 15.3 units to win 10 units) 8:10pm EST

Ivan Nova has to be the number two starter in the playoffs after the season he has put together. He won’t be in competition for the Cy Young but there are several teams who would love to have him in their rotation right now. 11-3 for the year and 7-0 with a 3.10 ERA in his last 8 starts. The Yankees are 25-10 against lefties and The Royals starter, Danny Duffy, is 3-6/4.97 ERA overall and 1-4, 4.50 ERA at home. I don’t see a down side betting the Yankees in this game. Sure it’s baseball and anything can happen, including the NYY winning the -1.5 RL as well as the game!



Stay tuned. More picks to come later. I feel that winning buzz in the air tonight!

Winning Addict’s Premium Early Winner Tuesday, August 16th

OVER 8 Tampa Bay/Boston –105 (Risk 4.2 units to win 4 units) 1:05 P.M. EST

I know two great pitchers are squaring off in this one, but James Shields has always had trouble keeping this Red Sox team down, and Jon Lester has actually had his struggles this year at home.  Lester is 3-4 with a 3.93 ERA at home this season.  Lester has not won a home start since May 20th vs the Chicago Cubs! I know, absolutely hard to imagine.  Shields is 6-10 in his career vs Boston, and while his ERA is 2.80 his season, his road ERA is a relatively fat 3.66.  The biggest reason I love this over is simply the fact that the Sox hit terribly in their past 2 losses in Seattle, and I expect much better today at Fenway—a place where they always crush the ball.  Shields threw a complete game shutout in his last outing in a 4-0 win over Kansas City, but he threw 117 pitches.  Shields has not responded well in starts followed by outings in which he throws 115+ pitches.  Both of these teams really work starting pitchers to get into the opposition’s bullpens, and I expect that to happen today.  And when the Tampa Bay bullpen comes in at Fenway—eeeeh.  I feel strongly about this over play so win 4 units with some nice value on this over.
