    Analysis:

    This line should be o9 with juice or o9.5 at +100. Dean Kremer and Alec Marsh have both significantly over-performed this season in terms of xwOBA. Both teams rank top 10 in MLB against RHP. I love that we can cash this with a 5-4 game. I'm on the OVER 8.5 (-115)

    Analysis:

    I played New York +100 on SuperBook. I make the Yankees 54 percent winners in this matchup with Stroman vs. Gausman, which implies a moneyline price of -117. I have major concerns about the barrel rate on Gausman's fastball, which is down in velocity early this season.

    Analysis:

    I'm backing the Rangers again today as Corey Seager and Wyatt Langford should be back in the lineup. I have Texas winning 57 percent of simulations which makes this line -133. Casey Mize has struggled with hard contact most of his career and he will again this season. You can find this at -118 on SuperBook.

    Analysis:

    I have the Rangers winning 57 percent of simulations which suggest this price should be -133. Reese Olson's barrel rate in early 2024 is nearly identical to the very poor mark he put up last season. The Rangers should have success against the slider and 4-seam fastball.

    Analysis:

    The Cubs pitching edge gets even stronger in the best pitching environment in baseball. Emerson Hancock should struggle with this Cubs lineup. I have Chicago winning 59 percent of simulations which suggests they should be -144.

    Analysis:

    I have the Phillies winning 59 percent of simulations which implies this line should be -144 with Aaron Nola against Lance Lynn. Lynn has had a nice career but he's clearly past his prime in his age 36 season. Lynn has already been barreled 5 times on just 26 batted balls this season.

    Analysis:

    My simulations make the Orioles 60 percent winners with Corbin Burnes vs. Brayan Bello which implies this line should be -150. I expect Bello to really struggle with Henderson, Rutschman, and Santander from the left side of the plate. I played this -129 on SuperBook and would play it up to -140.

    Analysis:

    I have the Dodgers winning 60 percent of simulations in this matchup which implies this money line should be -150. Bailey Ober is still overvalued in this matchup as he tends to give up a lot of hard contact through the air. Look for a nice offensive day from the Dodgers.

    Alabama
    72
    @ UConn
    86
    Analysis:

    My simulations make UConn -8 which is still a very healthy number for a Final 4 game. Alabama is one of the best Rim & 3 Rate teams in the country, and they achieve this with a unique blend of pace and size. I believe Donovan Glingan will struggle to play more than 25 minutes due to fouls and pace. With the game never really in doubt, a backdoor cover at 11.5 is well within the range of outcomes here. Take the points.

    Analysis:

    I played the Orioles at -130 on SuperBook and would still play them up to -138 in this matchup. Jared Jones is a respected prospect that looked good in his first appearance, but I have some concerns about the youngster who will really only feature two pitches (slider and 4-seam fastball). My simulations make the Orioles 59 percent winners behind Rodriguez, which suggests this line should be -144.

    Analysis:

    Wednesday 4/3 - Musgrove vs. Thompson. I like the Under 8.5 (-120) here as I think this line should be 7.5 and will likely close at 8. It's possible that we'll see watered-down lineups with the afternoon start time, but either way, I like the pitching matchup in one of the best pitching environments in MLB. I will share more in depth on the Early Edge Wednesday morning.

    3-1 in Last 4 GONZAG ATS Picks
    Analysis:

    I love both of these teams, but the number is too big on the neutral court with time to prepare. I make Purdue a -2 favorite and like betting into this number at +4.5, as I think there is a lot of variance in Purdue the rest of the way depending on how Zach Edey is able to stay out of foul trouble. I think it will be difficult for him against Graham Ike and a disciplined Gonzaga team. Take the points.
