BP Unfiltered

For Amusement Only 4/4

by John Perrotto

 

It's a light schedule Monday with just six games in the major leagues, and it's also a light pick day.

My only choice, based on the early odds, is to take another underdog shot on the Diamondbacks and Joe Saunders after they got rained out against the Rockies at Denver on Sunday. They face the Cubs and Randy Wells in a day game at Chicago and I'll go with the Diamondbacks +131 and stick them all the way down to even money.

One other possible play would be the Orioles and Jake Arrieta in their afternoon home opener over the Tigers and Rick Porcello if the line drops below -115.

Sunday was a losing day with a 2-3 record and -140 units. The winners were the Indians +114 over the White Sox and the Braves -142 over the Nationals, and the losers were the Red Sox -145 over the Rangers, the Angels -109 over the Royals and the Giants +126 over the Dodgers.

Season record: 7-8 (.467)

Net profit/loss: -184
