Free Pick Thursday EPL
(EPL) Everton vs. Aston Villa, 05/13/2021 1:00 PM
Money Line: 194.00 Aston Villa (Home)
Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach EPL Thursday Free Pick Aston Villa Money Line +195 vs Everton @ 1 ET - Just as in other sports, I often like to fade the line moves to get even more value. That is the case here as Aston Villa was as low as a +140 but is now as high as a +195 as of game day morning. The fact is that Everton is getting plenty of attention from the betting markets and I certainly understand this since they have one of the best away records in the league this season. However, Aston Villa has proven to be their nemesis for quite some time and won the reverse fixture less than two weeks ago. Overall I like the way Aston Villa has been playing of late with their recent losses coming against only the best clubs in the table. This included defeats at the hands of Manchester City, Manchester United, and Liverpool. I look for the hosts to come up with another big effort against an Everton club still lamenting what could have been had they not slumped and won just once in eight matches prior to coming up with a 1-0 win over West Ham. Note that in that match West Ham controlled possession by more than a 2 to 1 ratio so I am not putting a ton of stock in that Everton win and feel we have great value with the hosts here. Free Pick ASTON VILLA +195
(MLB) Toronto vs. Atlanta, 05/13/2021 12:20 PM
Money Line: -156.00 Atlanta (Home)
In the third game of this series, the Toronto Blue Jays take on the Atlanta Braves at Truist Park. The Atlanta Braves will look to get back into the win column following a loss to the Toronto Blue Jays in their latest game. They'll look to bounce back against the Braves in this one.

The Atlanta Braves's starter on Thursday will be right-hander Charlie Morton. Morton is 2-2 with a 4.98 ERA and 40 strikeouts this season. He is 2-2 with a 4.60 ERA and 56 strikeouts in his last 8 appearances facing the Toronto Blue Jays.

It will be right-hander Ross Stripling pitching for the Toronto Blue Jays here. He is 0-2 on the year with a 6.61 ERA.

Take the Bravos to get the win on Thursday afternoon.
Oakland Athletics vs Boston Red Sox Free Pick May 13, 2021
(MLB) Oakland vs. Boston, 05/13/2021 7:10 PM
Money Line: 106.00 Oakland (Away)
The Oakland Athletics have won four of their last five, the last two here at Fenway Park. I like them to complete the sweep of this three-game series with another win tonight.

Oakland left-hander Sean Manaea (3-1, 3.07 ERA) was excellent in his last start when he held Tampa Bay to one run on two hits with 10 Ks over 7 1/3 innings of work. Here he'll face a Boston team that has scored only eight runs through its last four games.

Red Sox righty Garrett Richards (2-2, 4.54 ERA) is coming off a couple of strong outings, but both were on the road. Richards has struggled home at Fenway, and Boston as a team is only 10-11 at home while Oakland is 10-4 on the road.

Free pick on Oakland Athletics.

Mike has an ALL EARLY MLB 3-PACK locked and loaded for the early action on Thursday. His early MLB 3-pack for Wednesday went 2-1, and tonight's games are looking good to SWEEP! Mike sat out on the hardwood action last night, but he has an NBA GAME OF THE MONTH release up for grabs for tonight. Don't miss Mike's TOP-RATED NORTHWEST DIV *BEST BET* which will put a +$20,000 RUN to the test!
(NHL) Minnesota vs. St. Louis, 05/13/2021 8:00 PM
Money Line: -108.00 Minnesota (Away)
The Blues took last night's game by a score of 4-0. While tonight's game is essentially now meaningless, last night's poor effort should bring out the best in the Wild. Though staying healthy is key, teams also want to turn up the intensity before the playoffs. The Wild didn't do that last night. While the Blues are 5-6 (-3.1) when playing the second of b2b games, the Wild are 7-3 (+3.2) when doing so. Consider Minnesota.

**UNBELIEVABLE BUT TRUE!** Soccer sharp Ben Burns is now an AMAZING 38-11 with his soccer in 2021. Needless to say, you'll want to join him for this afternoon's "MAIN EVENT!"
