Adam Thompson has a three-way parlay that could pay off huge on Thursday
Looking to get your weekend started on a high note? Stephen Oh has you covered. SportsLine's data scientist has used his advanced computer to reveal three key MLB picks for Friday's full slate of games. Before laying down your own picks, you'll want to see what he has to say.
The renowned co-founder of Accuscore and principal SportsLine engineer, Oh uses a data-driven approach to crush sportsbooks. He's in the midst of profit-making runs in the NBA, NHL and MLB, where he's hit on 20 of his last 34, bringing in $726 to $100 bettors who have tailed him.
Oh and his analysis have identified critical stats for three of Friday's matchups that he knows will make the difference. His projection model simulates each game 10,000 times, and he's sharing the results exclusively at SportsLine.
In addition to an overall winning run, Oh is putting team streaks on the line, as his picks include Orioles-Red Sox (5-2 on Boston picks) and Rockies-Giants (17-9 run on Colorado games). Parlaying all three of his selections pays out at nearly 6-to-1.
We can tell you that he's also riding the underdog Brewers (+134) in an interleague matchup with the Twins.
Oh knows Milwaukee (26-18) is on a hot streak, coming into Minneapolis after going 5-2 out west, winning series against the Rockies and Diamondbacks. The Brewers are 16-9 on the road this season.
The Twins (18-21) are in the bottom-third of every major offensive stat, but have been kept afloat by Eddie Rosario, who leads the team in average (.296), home runs (9), RBIs (27), slugging (.553) and runs scored (27).
Kyle Gibson is just 1-1 after seven starts (3.43 ERA), but has thrown quality starts in three of his last four outings. Brewers counterpart Brent Suter (2-3, 5.14) has gone more than five innings only once (5.1 on April 10).
With both starters likely out early, it could come down to the bullpen, and that's where the Brewers have a big edge. Milwaukee's relievers have a 2.60 combined ERA, compared to 4.83 for Minnesota.
Oh and his advanced computer are backing the Brewers, but what about the other two games? Visit SportsLine now to see Stephen Oh's best bets on the MLB schedule for Friday, as the renowned data scientist puts his overall MLB and individual team win streaks on the line with a trio of picks.
