Bets and Breaks Special: Light action as LSU Baseball looks for sweep at Texas A&M

The LSU Tigers baseball team continued it’s hot start this weekend for the start of SEC play with two strong wins at Texas A&M.

On Friday night, Paul Skenes proved he is as real as it come, firing 6.1 shutout innings, with 11 punch outs.

If you’re counting, that means Skenes has had double-digit punchies in each star this year. Thats fun.

But, if you follow along with our gambling side of things, I didn’t take any money line or spread action in the LSU game, as I wanted to see the boys play on the road, and with some questionable weather— didn’t feel confident making a pick.

Since one of my picks looked bad pretty early, I took a parlay of Arkansas ML (at home against Auburn) and a run line of under 9 for the Friday night game, only to have it push when A&M gave up a 5 spot in the top of the ninth.

Arkansas won so I still cashed about $90 on a 3.5u play.

If LSU didn’t score those 5 runs in the ninth though….would have made another $500.

Whatever. Shit happens.

However it shook out, LSU looked pretty dominant Friday and back it up Saturday, taking advantage of a ton of A&M walks and HBP’s with some clutch hits, winning 12-7.

Sunday games sometimes are a crapshoot and often a boat race in college baseball, so I will tread lightly today for my picks and maybe even parlay some with college hoops opportunity.

Since we are in Baton Rouge and starting with SEC coverage, I am going to bet LSU out slugs Texas A&M today, and Thatcher Hurd, the potential number one overall pick next year, does enough to keep A&M at bay.

Since the odds are -210 (opened -185) for LSU ML, I will parlay LSU women’s basketball (-490 ML), for some better odds, and ride the Tigers to a win.

The parlay is at -130, and I will probably throw 1.5u on that to win around $110.

LSU Women’s Basketball is the 3 seed in their region, which was complete crap, but I think it was so they can match-up with USC in the final.

LSU won their first game of the tournament against Hawaii 73-50, with Angel Reese dominating the game, having her 29th double-double with 34 points and 15 boards.

With LSU at home, Bayou Barbie doing her thing, and LSU probably higher than a 3-seed, I like our chances with LSU Baseball.
