Wednesday September 2nd VIP Picks

Braves vs. Red Sox

9:00 PM EST
Rotation #731
Thunder +5.5 over Rockets (win)
It’s game seven!  Houston is very small team and they use much of a bench.  This team did not look interested the other night as they blew the basketball game.  Harden and Westbrook were awful.   This team is going to live or die by the three pointer.  We saw last night that teams going the distance are tired.  It’s crucial to have a little size and a bench in game seven.  Houston has neither.  I think this is a generous point spread.  Take the Thunder.

7:30 PM EST
Rotation #966
Red Sox +1.5 runs over Braves -115 (pitching change no action)
Red Sox/Braves Over 11 runs (pitching change no action)

Boston has been awful this year.  The only advantage the Red Sox have is the Braves are not super great at hitting left handed pitching.    Robbie Erlin has been weak for the Braves this year and the Red Sox are pretty decent at hitting left handed pitching.  I think they knock him around.  We have a slight wind that helps the hitters a bit tonight as well.  I like the extra run the home team as getting and think there will be offensive fireworks.  Take the Red Sox +1.5 on the run line and the over.  Both treated as straight bets.
