Adam Thompson raked in the winnings as SportsLine's top MLB handicapper last year. Now he's looking to keep going on another strong run as he locks in his three best bets for Thursday's slate of action.
Thompson hit on 61 percent of his money line picks in 2018 for a massive profit of $4,062 to $100 players. Now he's isolated three more lines worth playing: Thursday's picks, parlayed together, offer a payout of 4-1.
We can tell you Thompson is going with the Astros (-215) on the road to face the Mariners at 3:40 p.m. ET. Thompson has nailed 18 of his last 25 picks involving Houston, including last month when he took the Astros (-159) in a 4-2 win over the Rangers on May 9.
"Justin Verlander has mowed down just about everyone he's faced in another amazing season for the 36-year-old Astros starter. He's backed by an offense that continues to roll regardless of who's playing," Thompson noted. "Take Verlander and the Astros on the road against Tommy Milone and the Mariners, despite the steep money line price."
He's also unearthed a key x-factor you're not even thinking about that has him backing all over a road underdog on Thursday. You ABSOLUTELY need to see them before you lock in any picks.
