Thursday, April 25th

Happy Thursday, everybody! I’m covering for Cheese today to give him a little respite on a relatively short slate Thursday. However, that doesn’t mean that we don’t have some analysis to dig into. This is actually a really intriguing five game main slate, so let’s dig in!

As a side note, there is a two game early slate today featuring ARI/PIT and LAD/CHC. However, there are some weather issues in Pittsburgh, and both games feature two quality pitchers facing off against each other. There’s not much of an edge to be had on that early slate. If anything, I’d lean toward Greinke and Taillon as my favorite arms and the Dodgers as my favorite offense, as they are facing off against Jon Lester in a return from the injured list. Again, though, I will stress to NOT use a big chunk of your bankroll on that two game early slate.
