Jerry Bo's Bookie Busters: Forgive me, bookies

Yes. These picks are on fire. Matthew Lewis/Getty Images

I was taught "Don't ask questions, ask for forgiveness," so sportsbooks and bookies around the world; forgive me. The previous edition of the Bookie Busters Money Machine read...

On fire!!! A +23 Unit run in 2 days. Welcome to the Machine.

That's all that can be said for the run we are on the past two days. Max plays hitting at over 80 percent, and regular plays are also hot.

Firenado - is said to be similar in appearance to a tornado made out of fire, and that is what we've been as of late. Dangerous results.

Add to that +23 2-day run, and we went 15-4 in a 3-day span of MAX plays, once again giving the books a headache. If played correctly, followers could have enjoyed about a + 45 unit run last week. Never risking more than 5U on a play.

Now we say if, and there's an emphasis on that. I've received quite a bit of private messages asking about bankroll management and people telling me they're disappointed in their results in a way as they feel they weren't maximizing their returns. Some were caught up in betting too much into early games and didn't have enough to cash throughout the day. Others found themselves investing in MLB games between matches conclusively tying up their cash and prohibiting them to bet correctly.

Getting the side right is only part of the journey; know your plan and execute it, don't get sidetracked and tied to other games causing you to miss the moment to capitalize.

Houston gets back in the win column

Astros end six-game skid thanks to a gem by Greinke

After the Mariners roared back Friday night to get a walk-off win over the Astros, dashing their hopes of ending their losing streak, Houston tried to even the series with a win on Saturday night with their ace Zack Greinke on the mound. Greinke would do his part, throwing a terrific game, and the Astros would squeak out one run, which was enough to get back in the win column.

Final Score: Astros 1, Mariners 0

Astros' Record: 7-7, fourth in the AL West

Winning Pitcher: Zack Greinke (2-1)

Losing Pitcher: Chris Flexen (1-1)

Plenty of hits, but only one run

Although the Astros were racking up hits against Chris Flexen, they had little to show for it. Eight different batters would notch ten hits against him, but the only time it amounted to a run was on a two-out RBI-single by Taylor Jones in the top of the fourth, giving Houston a 1-0 lead.

Greinke spins a gem

Luckily for them, Zack Greinke was making it look like that would be enough. He cruised through the Mariners all night, allowing just four hits while giving up zero runs along with six strikeouts, one of which moved him past 2,700 on his career. He could have attempted to finish the complete-game shutout, but at 91 pitches after eight, Dusty Baker opted to bring in closer Ryan Pressly for the ninth. Greinke's final line: 8.0 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 6 K, 91 P.

Houston finally ends their losing streak

With the high-leverage save opportunity in the bottom of the ninth, Ryan Pressly entered to hold on to the one-run lead. He would do his job, finishing off the win for Greinke and putting an end to Houston's disappointing losing streak.

Up Next: The third and final game of this series will get underway at 3:10 PM Central on Sunday. Jake Odorizzi (0-1, 13.50 ERA) will look to make a rebound from his disappointing first start with the Astros, while the Mariners will start Nick Margevicius (0-1, 7.04 ERA).
