That actually would be a fun roadtrip. Drive down, gamble a bit, register, and drive home

I take it that you have never been to East St. Louis
Have some patience, FFS.

Haha. All my family is in St Louis. I have certainly driven through it. Not nice, you're right.

But this casino is right on the waterfront. Easy to avoid the bad parts of town.

My dad grew up there.  His childhood home (that my grandfather built himself) is the only one that is still standing on its block.

If you haven't signed up for an online Sportsbook in Illinois, and you live in (or close to the state), you're right now missing out on free money. Between Rivers (still crap), DraftKings, and FanDuel, the amount of promotions are ridiculous right now. You never need to make a serious wager, and can come out with free money.

As an example, last night DraftKings had a White Sox boost bet where the Sox were +45 (max bet $23). DK right now has the Chiefs +101 for their season opener against the Texans (max bet $50). FanDuel had last week the Clippers +99 (max bet $50), and tomorrow the Lakers +62 (max bet $50). Even if you never place a wager with sweat, this is free money as the online books battle early on to grab Illinois consumers.

On top of it, the referral bonuses are great too. If anyone wants a referral code, send me a DM. On DraftKings as an example, if you get a referral code and deposit $100, you never need to touch your $100, you can withdraw it, and just bet the $100 referral bonus. Heck, you can use the $100 referral bonus to just bet on the ridiculous promo lines I mentioned in the paragraph above.

It won't be these good forever, but as PointsBet comes on and eventually BarStool, take advantage of these promos while you can.

They have those ridiculous run lines/spreads as standard -110 bets?

They do, all of them have been at -110. Obviously can’t parlay the ridiculous lines, but it’s as easy a $45 profit one will ever make.

I think there was an old betting thread, but I'm going to throw my picks up today, and let's see how this goes. Play/fade, let's make some $$$!

All lines from Rivers.

Favorite parlay of the day: Cavan Biggio O 0.5 hits -182 with Kyle Lewis  O 0.5 hits -167 (Parlay pays +148)

Biggio hits leadoff (more potential AB's) and has hits in his last 3 games. He's also lifetime hitting .800 (4 for 5) against Red Sox starter Ryan Weber. Lewis was 0-4 last night and doesn't have a hit in his last two games, so I'm betting he's due. He'll bat third tonight, and in his one game against Kyle Gibson, he's 3-3 with a HR.

Straight up like very much: Cards/Cubs Game 1 under 6.5 (line is at 6, I'll add the hook at -130). Wind blowing in, two ground ball pitchers, plus only 7 innings
                                        Giants -1.5  +150, fade MadBum every time
                                        Mariners -1.5 +143, I don't think Kyle Gibson is any good and Sheefield pitched decently at home against the Rangers two weeks ago

Pretty good night if you followed my picks. The Giants -1.5 was a rough one, they were up 4-2 in the 8th with 2 outs, couple of walks and hits later, it went 4-3. Bottom 8th, Giants with runners on first and second and one out, and a diving catch on a line shot to left.

Biggio ended up sitting, so his leg of the parlay was voided. He did pinch hit and walk (he had to start for the parlay to be in play). Every Blue Jay except Jansen got at least one hit, so I would have felt confident Biggio would have too.

3-1 on the night. There will be plenty of White Sox action tomorrow as Matt Harvey takes the bump (worst SP in baseball vs one of the best offenses in baseball).

JT’s putter has been bad the first two days. Looking at him to be average with it and win the Tour Championship.

Today's MLB slate is very enticing. Lot of ace's on the bump, let's win some $!

Lines from FanDuel.

Brewers/Indians F5 U 4.5 -176

The F5 under is 8-0 in Bieber starts. FanDuel was the only book that had it at 4.5, I'd probably parlay it with one of these other picks.

White Sox F5 -1.5 run line +114

Tough to find value with the Sox offense going up against Harvey (Sox full game run line -1.5 is -144 as an example). Harvey hasn't gotten out of the third inning in any of his starts, and that was against the Reds/Indians/Cardinals, not exactly the three best offenses in MLB. I expect the Sox to score early and often, and if Harvey somehow gets through a clean first run of the lineup, I'll back the Sox to tee off the second time through.

Mariners F5 -0.5 run line +102

This one is pretty straight forward, Dunn has owned the Rangers this year and Lyles has gotten torched by the Mariners.

2-1 on the day, Sox went 1-7 with runners in scoring position through the first 5, missed it by a run. Good weekend though, 5-2, with both losses being by a run each.

I figured I might as well own it. I love the data analysis more than anything and trying to attack where I see the data shows an edge. I think most people bet with their heart and not their heads. Baseball in particular is great because there’s so much data.

Nice call on Champ. Little sweat on 18, but he came through.

Couldn't get this on DK, can't even parlay the results.

Taking Raptors +1.5.

Parlayed Cubs ML and Rays ML.

Golf bets looking to be slightly better than 50%, have a BIG pre-tournament bet on JT.

Jays go 2-14 with RISP and leave 8 on base thru 5. That’s hard to do.

Edit: and then they score 10 runs in the 6th, of course.
