    Analysis:

    The Nationals have won five straight over the A's but the A's won four of the last five and Jake Irvin has lost four straight. The reason I like the A's today is because of Paul Blackburn the one star of the A's. He's won both starts this season for the A's beating the Cleveland Indians and beating the Tigers in his last start, both outings he allowed three hits and no runs. I used the A's to win.

    Analysis:

    I've been saying that U-Conn is the best team in college hoops, but after 12 wins and 11 covers, I think they've met their match. Who have they played with three losses and a cupcake schedule? Purdue has played everyone. Let's go through their schedule, Arizona, Tennessee twice, Gonzaga twice, Alabama, Marquette, and everyone else on the non-conference schedule. All wins. Their four losses were in conference on the road. Battle-tested. Tournament ready, and a big monkey on their back. Purdue to win, take the points

    Analysis:

    It's amazing what U-Conn has done since their last loss against Creighton winning 11 straight and covering 10 of those games. It's like they're better than last year and they won the championship last year. The last five games have stayed under because the defense is playing shutdown basketball, whoever they're playing. This is a team that has covered 26 of 38 games this season and they get stronger and stronger each game. U-Conn shoots 49.8% and they allow 39% shooting. They are the best team in the nation. U-Conn to cover.

    Analysis:

    NC State is the type of team that gives Purdue some problems and they've won nine straight since their last loss against Pittsburgh. They're on fire. They beat Duke twice, Carolina, Texas Tech, and Virginia. The secret to their success has been not turning the ball over. I think Purdue should be about five at most, anything else is a gift. Teams in red seem to give trouble for Purdue for whatever reason. I think Purdue wins but it's going to be a struggle. I like NC State plus the points.

    Analysis:

    Jared Jones had an amazing spring with six outings and three starts pitching 16 innings and no runs allowed. Then he came out with his first start and pitched 5.2 innings allowing three runs and three hits with 10 strikeouts. He got the win in 93 pitches. I like the Pirates to win today and continue their hot streak and the great start to the season.

    Analysis:

    Ryan Weathers had a pretty good spring with 18 innings pitched, six runs allowed, and 21 strikeouts but he lost his first game against Pittsburgh for seven innings allowing three runs in a 9-3 loss. Lance Lynn lasted four innings allowing no runs and struck out five in 70 pictures in his first start. The Cardinals won 6-5 against the Dodgers. No wins from Marlins this year. I got the Cardinals to win.

    Analysis:

    Mitch Keller became the Ace of the Pittsburgh Pirates last season when he started the first half of the season and was one of the best in baseball. He came out in spring for solid outings and gave up six runs in 12 innings. He gave up four runs and 5.2 innings on opening day but the Pirates scored a ton and that's something you have to take into account the Pirates are raking right now and that's the reason for this bet. Pirates to win.

    Analysis:

    Merrill Kelly got 4 spring starts with the 8 runs allowed while working on stuff but in 12 innings he struck out 18 and walked two. That's the part I like. That's the part he's coming out with in 2024. Control. The former ASU star came out in his first start of the season and pitched 6.2 innings allowed one run, struck out eight, and walked none. He's going to get after the Yankees today. Arizona to win.

    Analysis:

    Shane Bieber had a great spring with four starts, two wins, only three runs over 17 innings, and 19 strikeouts and he came right out and pitched his first game like he was in his prime form. Who said he's got a dead arm? Last week in this debut he went six innings while allowing no runs while striking out 11. He won the game and looked exactly like he did in his prime. Good battle with Luis Castillo should keep the game under and side with Cleveland winning.

    Analysis:

    Zac Gallen was the best pitcher in baseball at home last year and he's at it again this season. His second start of the season coming off his first start where he went five innings, allowed three hits and one run. He's 1-0 now. He's cheap today cause he plays the mighty Yankees. I'm on the Diamondbacks today.

    Analysis:

    Matt Waldron had a great spring pitching in four games, starting twice, went 13 innings allowed 13 hits, and two runs out of spring. He also had one save. Last year's rookie year went six starts and pitched 41 innings total giving up 39 hits and 20 runs. I don't like the fact that he gave up nine home runs but the Nebraska Cornhusker is just hitting his prime. Cornbread fed. I like the Padres to win.

    Analysis:

    NC State has won eight straight and covered six in route to making the NCAA tournament. Five wins in five days won the ACC Tournament. It was the only chance they had to make the NCAA Tournament. Eight straight including wins over Duke and North Carolina. They are trying to be the fifth team from 11th seed to make the final four. They're playing confidently and they're not turning the ball over. I'm going to ride the hot streak of NC State.

    Analysis:

    Connecticut has rolled through the tournament winning and covering all three games and the games weren't even close. The Champs are back and better than ever. The clinic they put on was just their normal game. They allowed shooting at 39% and allowed 63 ppg in the regular season and allowed 34% and 54 ppg in the three games. They're better than everyone else and mentally stronger. They're putting on a show. They went 25-12 ATS and 12-2 ATS in their last 14. How can you bet against them? U-Conn to cover.

    Analysis:

    Great matchup between the sharp shooting of Creighton and the defensive pressure by Tennessee who is number three in the nation with 38.8% shooting allowed. Creighton makes 10.7 threes a game that's 6th in the nation. They are relentless. Creighton allows 41.8 shooting only as well. Tennessee only shot 33% against Texas but they won 62-58. They haven't covered in three of their last four games and never made the final four. Creighton shoots better than Tennessee on Friday. Creighton to cover.

    Analysis:

    The A's got pounded 8-0 yesterday and it's going to be something similar to that today. Ross Stripling is pitching and he looked good last year but his surrounding cast brought him down in 2024. He had a terrible spring with a 8.38 ERA in five starts with 30 hits in 19 innings, and 20 runs given up. He allowed three home runs. Solid price with Cleveland to win.
