Winners: AMO vs. MTZ

Winners: AMO vs. MTZ

Since the last time you heard from me, we won both our straight MLB picks and of the course the parlay we had on them. The Cubs jumped out to a sizeable lead, only to blow it later and win the game in the ninth. The Dodgers had a different type of game, trailing for most of it but finishing it in similar fashion to the Cubs. Whatever happens, keep it in the box score. The only thing that matters is wins and losses. In this case, we won.

Let’s keep it going today.

Today, we’ve got some more Ligue 1 action as AS Monaco goes on the road to play Metz. This is going to be consistent this season. To retain its league title, AS Monaco is going to have to try to win every game because PSG will be keep pace with them to reclaim what has been their property for the last few years. So what does that mean? Every bottom-feeder team in Ligue 1 has to be beaten by Monaco if they are to keep the title. It needs to get the three points in all of these games. Monaco has started the season with two wins, winning its last game by three goals at home against Dijon FCO. Metz hasn’t fared as well. It’s lost the first two games of the season by two goals on both occasions. Metz will try to get a point from this game in my opinion, having dropped all points this season. It will be a difficult task. Now let’s take a look at how to bet this.

  • Pick 1: AS Monaco -303 (Bet $40 to win $13.20)
  • Pick 2: Draw +450 (Bet $12 to win $54)

Because the most likely outcome is AS Monaco not losing, we’ll play both of these today to try to guarantee some money. The good thing about a bet like this is that as long as Metz doesn’t pull some colossal upset (they are +750 to win the game), you will win. It’s technically called hedging your bets. In this case, we’d be rooting for the draw just because it would net us more money. But anytime you bet and win money, you should be happy.
