Cash with the Flash Best Bets: MLB & NHL Friday!



Cash with the Flash had another winning day on Thursday, and it would have been better had it not been for the Atlanta Braves bullpen blowing the two-game lead they were entrusted with and wound up losing the game last night. Otherwise, Cash with the Flash Best Bets would have posted a back to back undefeated day.

Such is the life of a professional sports handicapper.

Today marks the day I like to refer to as the beginning of the busy season; the NBA preseason began somewhere today, and we have the NLDS and ALDS playoffs with four games on the docket. The NHL has five games on the schedule and we also have NCAA tackle football with a pair of games for us to enjoy.

It will be a fun day for sports junkies and sports betters alike! Let’s begin with one MLB playoff game Cash with the Flash Best Bets is interested in this afternoon.

St Louis Cardinals (-125) vs Atlanta Braves (+113)

Jack Flaherty (11-8, 2.75) vs Mike Foltynewicz (8-6, 4.54)

Game time for this one is 4:37 pm ET and if yesterday’s wild and wooly finish is any indication, we’re in for a roller coaster of a series. Atlanta should have won game one of the series and now is in a must-win game on Friday.

Flaherty has been good this season. His 3.64 xFIP suggests maybe he’s been luckier than good and could see regression. His road splits show he posted a 3.13 ERA and served up 12 dingers over 97.2 innings pitched. He also struck out 114 hitters away from Busch Stadium but he’s up against a Braves team with a 21.8 percent strikeout rate and .203 ISO against righties this season.

Foltynewicz has also pitched well and has been decent in his 10 home starts. His 4.58 ERA and 3-3 record over 53 innings pitched at home are decent numbers and his 4.73 xFIP closely resembles his ERA so that is what we’ll get with the Braves righty is an average MLB pitcher who could allow nearly two bombs per nine innings pitched. St Louis does have a rather high 22.3 percent strikeout rate against righties and Foltynewicz has that going for him.

Why the Cardinals?

Cash with the Flash Best Bets suggests playing the Cardinals to beat the Braves Friday afternoon. Yesterday’s loss highlighted the Brave’s biggest problem; the bullpen blew 23 save opportunities this season and blew a two-run lead that cost Atlanta game one. Now they must slug their way out of this mess and that will be difficult this afternoon against Flaherty. Foltynewicz allows too many runs per game and I doubt he outpitches Flaherty today.

The National Hockey League is in the house including a 2:05 pm ET matchup in Prague, the Czech Republic between the Chicago Blackhawks and Philadelphia Flyers! Cash with the Flash Best Bets does like one game for this evening.

Toronto Maple Leafs (-150) vs Columbus Blue Jackets (+135)

This one starts at 7:00 pm ET and the Maple Leafs are coming off a 5-3 win over Ottawa and this will be not only the season opener but a home opener for Columbus.

Why Toronto?

The Maple Leafs have too much firepower and I don’t think the Blue Jackets can match them goal for goal. Columbus has Joonas Korpisalo between the pipes to replace Sergei Bobrovsky and I don’t think Korpisalo can silence the Maple Leafs. Frederich Anderson should be in the cage for Toronto and he’s probably unhappy about the three goals he allowed to Ottawa and I’m expecting a big game from him tonight against Columbus. Cash with the Flash Best Bets suggests playing the Maple Leafs to defeat the Blue Jackets on Friday evening.
