The boys are white hot, our daily picks went 3-1 yesterday for a +2.64u profit, but we made our money on the UFC 252 PPV, where Ben went 5-0. Ben has won 10 straight picks dating back to August 10, and the Kelly’s are riding 3 game win streaks each as well. If you haven’t been tailing, now’s the time to start.

Alex Jansen (5-4-1, 55%, +0.6u): New York Yankees TT o5.5 vs Boston Red Sox

The Yankees have put up 10 and 11 on the Red Sox in the first two games of this series and that should continue with Mazza on the mound. I would say his first name but once again, I don’t know it. I’m not putting much thought into this one, but it’ll hit easily in the early innings.

Risk 1.15 to Win 1

Ben Jansen (25-12, 67.57%, +27.15u, 10 straight wins): St. Louis Blues vs Vancouver Canucks o5.5

The Canucks are up 2-0 in this series, so this is an absolute must win for the defending Stanley Cup champs. The overs have hit in both of the first two games with the Canucks winning 5-2 and 4-3, so I’m expecting another high scoring one today. The Canucks are on absolute fire, 5-0 in the bubble and have scored at least 3 goals in each game, and haven’t played much defense to match it as their overs are 4-1 in the bubble. The Blues are the polar opposite, 0-5 in the bubble and they’ve allowed 4+ goals in 3 of those games. If Binnington struggles again in net and the Canucks keep it up, this one should hit easily again.

Risk 1 to Win 1.05

Dylan Kelly (7-4, 63.63%, +3.85u, 3 straight wins): Milwaukee Brewers @ Chicago Cubs o8.5

Historically the Brewers lineup has been able to get to Jon Lester throughout his career. While the Brewers offense has struggled a bit, expect them to put up a bunch of runs today. The Cubs average five runs per game, which should be enough to push this total to the over.

Risk 1.1 to Win 1

Ryan Kelly (6-3, 66.66%, +2.85u, 3 straight wins): Washington Nationals -1.5 @ Baltimore Orioles

The Nats have underachieved so far this season, currently sitting 4 games back of the Marlins in the NL East. I still think the Nationals are too talented to play like this all season, and its only a matter of time before this lineup breaks out. With ace Max Scherzer (2.75 ERA) on the hill, the Nationals should be able to shut down the Oriole offense which, let’s be honest, has overachieved thus far in 2020. John Means (7.71 ERA) is pitching for Baltimore and will be completely outmatched by Soto and the Bats. Expect a big victory for Washington to win the Battle of the Beltway series and gain some momentum to turn things around this season.
