The Prodigy

Don?t let his age fool you, 24-year-old Michael Rusk is no stranger to the industry. He built his name by exploiting flaws in public betting. With his economics and statistics background, Michael uses multiple algorithms pooling with recency bias to produce profitable picks. Sharp action, regression, fading the public and closing line value are all things he considers before finalizing his very selective card.

YESTERDAY 8:37 PM

A battle of two of MLB?s worst teams takes place Wednesday night. I don?t think the Orioles' Aaron Brooks has looked the same this season after being out of the majors for so long. On the other hand, Kansas City's Mike Montgomery couldn?t be hotter entering this contest, giving up zero earned runs over his past 13 innings. This feels like the Royals should be a much larger favorite on the road here. I like Kansas City to take this one rather easily.

YESTERDAY 2:57 PM

The Rangers don?t get enough credit for ranking in the top half of the majors in almost every batting category. With ace Mike Minor on the mound, I really like them here at home. In his career, Minor is 3-0 with a 2.55 ERA against the Angels as a starter and faces a Los Angeles team that has self destructed the past month. The Angels have shown no consistency, and I don?t see them snapping out of that against a top 10 pitcher in the game this season. Take the Rangers at a really fair price.
