Baseball video games are a top five thing in my life. They’ve always been there and they will always be there. And while I don’t have it in my personal top five baseball video games ever, RBI Baseball is way up there. But not at the very top. I just couldn’t get past the fatass players and the fact you could bunt for a home run.
But you want winners. I’ve got them.
This could could be a boom-or-bust night with Walk the Line’s picks, as I am going against the public in three of the four picks. But I can’t resist the temptation to bet on a 50-win Utah Jazz team that won its last eight home games of the regular season. I think they are getting undervalued right now because the Rockets have won the first three games of the series. Utah +3.5 is very attractive, but scared money doesn’t make money, and I’m taking the +145 value on the moneyline. I have no problem taking the risk for a 50-win team that lost a coin-flip game two days ago.
The rest of our Walk the Line picks for tonight:
Canes (-120) over Capitals.
Stars (-120) over Predators
Mets ML (-108) over Phillies.
