We are just a little over 1/4 of the season. Most teams are still in the running to take the Division EXCEPT for Cincinatti, Detroit and Washington. These three teams truley stink. If you havn't noticed how bad these teams are, here's the news. Since day-one, using just these three teams (betting against them) and taking all the remaining teams playing that day (one-by-one) as a 4-team parlay. You have raked in the money $$$. For eaxample:
THE DAILY 4-TEAM PARLAY
FRIDAY May 20, 2022
1. Reds vs Blue Jays Won -190
2. Tigers vs Guardians Won +100
3. Nationals vs Brewers Won -185
4. Pick ANY Fav - Pick a team, any team, say Atlanta Braves - Won -120
**You need to do this every single day until the season ends! Right now, the Reds win 26% of their games and the Tigers & Nationals only 30%. This win percentage WILL NOT get any higher it will only drop. The 4-team daily parlays CASH! The parlay above paid: Bet $10 Win $77.00, Do five more parlays using other favorites (-) on the moneyline. The five Friday parlays for the day (five $10 four-team parlays) paid out $935. Sure, there are going to be days you don't win, but I will take $1,000 for $50 two or three times per week. Just think only 45-days down of 162!
1. REDS LOST 1-3
2. NATIONALS LOST 1-5
3. TIGERS DID NOT PLAY
San Francisco Giants (22-16) vs San Diego Padres (25-14)
TAKE: PADRES +130 WIN 2-1
The Giants will hand the ball to Carlos Rodón (4-2) for his eighth start of the season.
The left-hander’s last start was on Sunday, when he tossed 3 2/3 innings while giving up eight earned runs on 10 hits in a matchup with the St. Louis Cardinals. The 29-year-old has pitched in seven games this season with an ERA of 3.49, a 4.308 strikeout-to-walk ratio and a WHIP of 1.112. He has four quality starts in seven chances this season. Rodon has made six starts of five or more innings in seven chances this season, and averages 5.2 frames when he pitches. Among qualified pitchers this campaign, the 29-year-old’s 3.49 ERA ranks 33rd, 1.112 WHIP ranks 26th, and 13.0 K/9 ranks second.
Joe Musgrove (4-0 with a 2.20 ERA and 47 strikeouts in 45 innings pitched) makes the start for the Padres, his eighth of the season. His most recent time out came on Sunday against the Atlanta Braves, when the right-hander went six innings, surrendering two earned runs while allowing four hits. In seven games this season, the 29-year-old has put up an ERA of 2.20, with 9.4 strikeouts per nine innings. Opponents are batting .217 against him. Musgrove is trying to build upon a seventh-game quality start streak in this outing.

I have watched the Giants for years, for whatever reason when they head down to San Diego, it's tough to win a game, they always fall apart.
