Welcome to the latest edition of the Ride with the Rebels Newsletter! Last week’s action was nothing short of exhilarating, with three wins in our last four bets. And we’re not slowing down anytime soon.
April 13: NHL- Philadelphia Flyers vs Chicago Blackhawks
Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews announced this morning that he would not be re-signing in Chicago next season. That makes this his final game with the organization.
Do you think the team is going to be giving tonight’s game their all for the captain that led them to three Stanley Cups?
We do, and we’ll be taking Chicago’s ML at +100 odds against a mess of a Flyers team.
With both organizations out of the playoffs, this is the one motivating factor for the Blackhawks to win. It’s good enough for us.
Rebel’s Pick: Chicago Blackhawks ML (+100) @ 1U
April 13- MLB: Philadelphia Phillies vs Cincinnati Reds
The MLB was kind to us last week, so we’re heading back to it with a juicy No Runs First Inning (NRFI) pick.
Phillies batters Trea Turner, Kyle Schwarber and Nick Castellanos are a combined 1-15 against Reds pitcher Nick Lodolo, who has a career ERA of 3.43. Despite the firepower at the top of the order, the Phillies have struggled to score in the opening inning of games this season.
On the other side of the mound, Phillies pitcher Bailey Falter has a 67% NRFI rate through 18 starts, via Oddschecker. He’ll likely be facing Jonathan India to begin the day. While the Reds have some interesting pieces in the batting order, they’re 4-7 on the season and have a tough time putting up runs.
Rebel’s Pick: Under 0.5 Runs- 1st Inning (-115) @ 1U
