952 I am going with the underdog Texas Rangers against the mighty Astros. Toasty weather and the starting pitching edge clearly goes to the Rangers.

Final score: Rangers 5 Astros 0.

Nicely done, BOMZEE.

3-5-2

Two more wins and BOMZEE gets to .500.

Must get to 50% before we start thinking about 60%.

I don't know about winning this one -Hopefully I won't look too stupid with today's pick-
912 REDS vs.ROCKY'S UNDER TWELVE
Gray and Gray both seem to be in very decent form- -(but Sonny has NEVER pitched in Coors) -the Reds have been a great UNDER team -24 more UNDERS than Overs.

Game at Coors Field is scoreless after five innings.

That's the BOMZEE I know.

In-game total is 4.5 runs.

Nothing goofy from here.

I am going with the slight dog
963 Cincinatti Reds
Hopefully they show up tonight and don’t embarrass me too badly
Colorado has been playing real well at home
But
Roark has done much better against the Rockies than
Freeland has done against the reds

I'm going with Minny VS Cleveland UNDER 8.5 (-109 )
I'd be the first to admit This pick might prove to be a train wreck............
I'm just not sold on the Indian offense and both starters have had their moments.

Today I am going with 954 Cubs vs. Reds UNDER TEN
To be fair Nobody can in their right mind be surprised if this one blows up in my face and flies over. The wind is going out somewhat to Center field -Hendricks can lack command and has had shoulder issues- the Reds bullpen got worked hard in Denver- and look at the last two games for both teams............
Some pluses For my side-
Each pitcher has done well against their opponent this year and The Reds have struggled against right handed pitching this year.

I rarely argue against an UNDER selection.

Rooting for a low-scoring game tonight at Wrigley to extend our featured handicapper's winning streak to five games.

Good luck, BOMZEE.

Current record: 7-5-2.

Tuesday July 16
928 AZ DBACKS vs. Texas Rangers UNDER TEN
Clearly any under bet in hot Arlington Texas where the ball carries real well is problematic.
Both starters have shown signs of being very effective.

Wednesday July 17
Today's Play in the Grand Challenge is
955 Cincinnati Reds
I'm thinking the Reds are a live dog and they have attracted some movement
Hopefully today I get some sort of a combination of Sonny Gray pitching well and or Yu Darvish pitching badly to help my cause.

Friday July 19 ( make up play )
Game 974 Athletics VS Twins UNDER TEN AND A HALF -109
Umpire Gary Cederstrom has been an excellent UNDER umpire this year 5 and 12 to the under.
FWIW the Twins have 8 first five innings Unders in a row.
I'm guessing/hoping for more of the same.

Thanks for the clarification. Had to be a scratch in the early morning and never saw it. I questioned it because I had Washington =1.5 even and was graded without dispute. Thought it may have been a rare double otb case as you get a rare tendency when a pitcher is scratched, the replacement is later scratched and then you switch back to the original again.
