Erik Underwood’s MLB Picks: 7/22/2012

July 22, 2012


Here’s hoping Jason Kubel and the Diamondbacks continue to beat up on Houston pitching.

2 Team Parlay – New York Yankees/Arizona Diamondbacks

Not much needs to be said about the Diamondback portion of this parlay.  I’m once again fading the Astros on the road, which has been a good idea this season considering their 10-40 record away from home.  The Diamondbacks really seem to get the bats going in the desert, and I think we’ll continue to see that today.  Josh Collmenter has added a little bit of stability to the rotation, and won’t face much of a challenge today against a poor hitting Houston club.

The Yankees have surprised me by allowing themselves to lose the first three in a row of a four game series against Oakland.  Now granted, Oakland is one of the hottest teams in baseball right now, but only posting 6 runs in 3 games isn’t up to snuff for this high-caliber Yankee lineup.  They will throw C.C. Sabathia today, who shut down the A’s the last time he faced them, going 7 strong innings and yielding only 2 runs.  The Yankees will not suffer a four game sweep to the A’s, and will be a great parlay partner to the Diamondbacks to create plus-money value.

Play: Yankees/Diamondbacks Parlay +132, 2.5 units
