MLB – April 17, 2023

Written in


Another fantastic day of baseball! Nine out of eleven will always put a smile on your face, even if two games rained out.

We are creeping up on 50%, thanks in no small part to the Pittsburgh Pirates winning ways! (Not something I thought I’d be saying this season.)

Another thing I’ve been thinking about is adding a parlay of all of the games every day, again for only $1. This is the second time I’ve come very close to getting all of the games right, and the odds for something like this are pretty huge. I just quickly ran through the games for April 17, and picked the favorite most of the time. (There are 17 games tonight.). If I get them all correct (which is highly unlikely), a $1 bet would win $21,539. For $1 a day, this seems like I might hit it once during the season. Do you think it’s worth it?
