Joe Duffy’s Picks week has been the story of our lives. We are 10-4 with eight underdog winners, yet 0-2 in extra inning games. The best sports picks continue today, hopefully without the worst luck. An actual premium play for free from Joe Duffy’s Picks is on:
TEXAS (LEWIS +165) Detroit (Verlander)
Texas is a decent 3-1 the last four, while Detroit is 1-5 their last six -5.2 units. Go against a starting pitcher who gives up .5 or fewer home runs per start, after a game in which the bullpen gave up four or more earned runs 934-842, +104.6 units.
Road team is 6-1 in Colby Lewis starts. Justin Verlander has been drilled for 10 earned runs in his last two starts, a combined 12 innings. Road team is 6-4 in his starts. In eight starts, Justin Verlander has a WHIP of 1.424. That is not bad, but it is not exactly worthy of being such a huge chalk.
Rangers are 36-16 in their last 52 games vs. a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30. Detroit is 2-7 since last year with Verlander to teams with a losing record. Texas is 13-7 in the series.
Winning pick is Texas, a Dandy Dog, which is moneyline underdog of 140 or more.
In addition to the free pick Joe Duffy’s Picks has more. Yesterday again summed up my entire career. Joe Duffy’s Picks goes 3-1 with the only loser being of course in extra innings in which the White Sox blow a three-run two-out 9th inning lead. We are 8-4 in MLB underdog moneyline winners outnumbering the moneyline chalk losers 7-1. Of course two of the losses are in extra innings.
We have six winners, four Wise Guys in three sports: NBA, NHL, and four MLB winners at OffshoreInsiders.com
