For the Daytime Gambler, April 12th

I’ve decided I’m going to make things interesting for myself – and the seven of you. I’m going to place a wager on a MINIMUM of 5 Major League Baseball games per day, for the rest of the regular season.

I started this off yesterday with a post with three predictions for yesterday’s slate of afternoon games. Being the brilliant gambling man that I am, my experiment was quickly off to a 0-3 record/start.

Luckily, Roy Halladay and Chad Billingsley had my back, and both the Phillies and Dodgers covered last night. That raised my overall record to a shiny 2-3. I was able to pick 3 (Reds, Dodgers, Phillies) of the winners, but Cincinnati failed to cover, winning 4-3 on Chris Heisey walk-off single.

Here it is. Taking a stab at a full slate of afternoon games.

Giants (Bumgarner) @ Rockies (J. Moyer)

Pick: Giants -1.5

Bumgarner shakes off rough first outing, returns to form to tame Rockies’ bats

Mariners (Vargas) @ Rangers (Holland)

Pick: Rangers -1.5

Rangers’ bats wake up for revenge on last night’s loss

More picks coming later on for the nightcap. Check back!
