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.
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.
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.
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 rightiesand Foltynewicz has that
going for him.
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.
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.
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.
