Friday Funday

I haven’t been able to post too often this summer due to work, but I’m going to try and figure it out so I can get some more content out for you guys. If I’m not at work I’m most likely sleeping, but as the season for the Palm Springs Power kicks into gear, I’ll probably have a little more time to do some articles. I’m still posting daily bets on the Twitter account (@PartyFoulSports) so keep following along or start following if you want to make some money.

MLB

Red Sox – Astros ML Parlay

This bet isn’t going to yield you much, and I’ve thought about adding the Nationals to it, but three teams in a parlay can sometimes get dicy. We’ve got Verlander and Sale on the mound, two of the best pitchers in all of baseball. Sale is pitching against his former team in the Chicago White Sox and I don’t see them being able to manufacture many runs off the CY Young candidate. The Red Sox bats are not going to let Sale down in this one either after a drought at the plate against the Tigers yesterday. I don’t see the best team in the league struggling on offense two games in a row.

The Astros have a favorable pitching matchup with Verlander against Doug Fister, a former Astro. I think Verlander has the ability to kick it up a notch in certain situations and I think a game against the Astros in-state rival will be one of those situations. The Rangers have a feast or famine offense and against a stellar pitcher like Verlander, it’s more likely to be a famine than a feast.

Yankees -120 vs Mets

I know DeGrom had one of the best starts of his career last time out, and I know Tanaka is not always the most consistent pitcher, but getting the Yankees at anything under -150 is a huge steal and I’m jumping all over this one. The Mets bullpen has been nothing short of terrible this season and I’m banking on another bad outing from the bullpen against one of the most potent offenses in the league. The Yankees have certainly had their struggles this season, but they should be able to put the Mets away if they can get DeGrom out of the game early in the Subway Series.

NBA

Let’s take a trip to the hardwood for our next bet:

Cavs +.5 1st Quarter -115

I really don’t think LeBron is going to let the Warriors embarrass him on his home court to start this game out and the Warriors usually start slow anyway. I’m not going to be the full result in this game, because I think it’s silly to outright bet against LeBron at certain times, but the Warriors could very well come in and just destroy a very defeated Cavs team. I think LeBron has something left in the tank though and I’m expecting a huge first quarter and first half from him and his somewhat supporting cast.

UFC

Mike Jackson – Tai Tuivasa ML Parlay

Mike Jackson has a stellar name and is fighting CM Punk, who I really don’t think belongs in the UFC. He should have stuck to wrestling because he was a tad more entertaining and more successful in that ring. Neither of these fighters has ever won a fight in the UFC, but CM Punk is essentially an amateur fighter based on only having one MMA fight under his belt. Jackson has a background of fighting as an amateur and will likely be able to expose the fact that CM Punk only relies on his jiu-jitsu in the octagon. It’s going to be a shame for CM Punk if he gets submitted in front of his hometown, but sometimes that’s just how sports go.

I don’t know much about Tai Tuivasa, but when I was looking at the lines for this fight, he was at -245 and the over/under was set at 1.5 rounds with the under at -165, leading me to believe that Tuivasa has a good chance at knocking out his opponent in Andrei Arlovski. Tuivasa is 14 years younger than Arlovski and does not have a loss on his record yet, standing at 7-0-0. Tuivasa has the potential to be a rising star in the UFC if he keeps up his hot start. I’m confident he’ll be able to do so tonight at the United Center.
