20/20 Vision: Betting, Banter and Baffling Brilliance

Greetings, sports betting enthusiasts! Put your feet up, grab your favorite drink, and let's dive into the latest tips and trends from our resident 27-year veteran handicapper, Ron Raymond. And as always, we promise some humor and engaging banter to make the article enjoyable and relatable for you lovely readers.

Hole in one with Ron's Masters Pick!

First up, did you jump on Ron's Silver Pick with the Spanish sensation Jon Rahm at +965 to win the 2023 Masters golf championship? If you did, congratulations! You're probably smiling all the way to the bank, just like Rahm's caddie after getting that hefty winning tip. If not, don't worry, there are plenty of other opportunities to cash in.

Let's talk about yesterday's Jays and Angels game, which deserves the “Game of the Year” nominee. The Jays hung on for a nail-biting 12-11 win over the Angels, with a whopping 26 hits and only 1 error. It's like watching a home run derby on steroids!

Moving on to the NBA, who would have thought the Dallas Mavericks would be out of the playoffs and the Miami Heat and the Lakers would be stuck in a play-in game? It's like a plot twist straight out of a Hollywood thriller!

In horse racing news, there are only 26 days until the 149th run for the roses. Forte is currently the favorite at 3-1 odds to win the 2023 Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs. If you're looking for a sure bet, you might want to saddle up with this one.

Did somebody say free baseball pick?

Now for your MLB Baseball system trend play of the day: The OVER is 13-3-0 when ANY MLB Home Underdog is playing in the 1st game of a series, after a non-conference game, facing right-handed pitchers, coming off a 1-game win, and allowed 0 runs AGAINST in their last game. So, play Houston vs. Pittsburgh OVER 7.5! It's like finding a needle in the haystack, but we did the hard work for you.

The Baltimore Orioles hold the #1 situational handicapping spot today vs. the A's, as they've been in a neutral cycle over the last nine days and have not lost against teams with a below .500 record. You know what they say, “When the going gets tough, the tough get going!”

Speaking of strength of schedule, Tampa Bay Rays have a strength of schedule of 24.81, which could explain their impressive 9-0 record. Meanwhile, the Oakland A's are struggling at 2-7 straight up with a 71.85% strength of schedule. You could say they're walking the tightrope of victory and defeat.

The New York Islanders face a tough challenge tonight against the Capitals. Although they're 3-7 SU vs. Washington in their last 10 head-to-head meetings, the Caps are also 3-7 SU in their last 10 games. So, who will break the curse? Grab your popcorn and find out!

The OVER has been very bullish since the beginning of the season, with 58.1% of MLB Baseball games going over the total. Keep an eye out for higher totals from bookmakers over the next few weeks – they're like sharks smelling blood in the water!

And finally, let's remove the Rays from the equation and ask who the number 2 scoring offense in the big leagues is so far. Surprise, surprise! It's the Boston Red Sox, averaging a remarkable 6.56 runs per game. Talk about a home run party!
