Not a great start but it's a long season. Trying to sneak this first game in and then I will have the rest in a later post. I think being a sports bettor on the west coast is -ev. Going to start kelly betting, will always be units risked whether favorite or dog.

Good stuff. Did you decide to go with full or fractional Kelly?

Re: 2021 2+2 General MLB Picks and Discussion

This is fractional, concerned with how big some of the edges I think I have are but we will see how it goes. Probably taking a break from hits for the rest of the games today.

Smyly is beloved by most of the various twitter pitching stats I've seen concocted by all the smart people making these stats and sharing them for free. He had one of the lowest projected wOBA against last season afaik.

Really bad day, our bet sizing did us in with strikeouts and I think I'm going to retire the hits prop until we start to get some statcast data for hitters and the sample sizes become reliable.

Also, I noticed bovada has really soft strikeout lines compared to other books sometimes but I don't want to include lines that aren't widely available in my record, although I know some people reading this have access to bovada. So I'm going to post the bovada strikeouts separately so anyone following can bet those if they want. My limits on there are only to bet/win $100 so my bovada picks will always be risk/to win $100 but maybe your limits are higher.

Projection of 4.4 IP. Yes the opener situation gets tricky but it involves me trying to follow what the Rays are doing. It seems yarborough has ascended past opener status.

Jack Flaherty o6.5 -125 [BM doesn't have a line for some reason but this is much better than PB if you have access]

Also my yarborough IP projection might even be low tbh
