Texas Rangers +130 at San Francisco Giants -140 Total: 8
Logan Webb has had some issues his last few starts for the Giants. In his last start he went 3.2 innings giving up three hits and six runs. The Rangers' last two games against the Seattle Mariners they scored 19 runs total and in this game, they are going to have no issues running up the score again. Back the Rangers to win this game on the money line.
Play: Rangers ML
Chicago Cubs -151 at Cleveland Indians -154 Total: 7
Shane Bieber has been playing with fire most of the seasons. In the last game against the Royals he went six innings giving up four runs, but he also gave up nine hits and in this game it’s going to be the Cubs that are going to take advantage of it. Even though the Cubs offense hasn had issues this season they will still take advantage in this game. Back the Cubs to win this game on the money line.
Play: Cubs ML
Cincinnati Reds +110 at Pittsburgh Pirates -110 Total: 8
Sonny Gray is coming off his best start of the season against the White Sox going seven innings giving up two his and zero runs. JT Brubaker has ben strong this season also going 32.1 innings giving up ten runs. This is going to be a pitchers duel and the under is going to have no issue cashing.
Philadelphia Phillies at Washington Nationals
Erick Fedde looked bad in his last start against the Atlanta Braves giving up five hits and five earned runs. Chase Anderson also hasn’t had a whole lot of success this season and that will lead to both teams running up the score. Back the over.
Kansas City Royals vs Detroit Tigers
The Royals are really struggling with their pitching and I don’t think it’s going to get any better in this game. In the last game against the Twins the Tigers offense scored seven runs, and they will find offensive success.
New York Yankees -130 at Tampa Bay Rays +110 Total: 8
Jordan Montgomery has been pretty consistent for the Yankees this season going five or six innings giving up two or three hits in each of his starts. The Yankees are going to have a good chance to give him plenty of run support and that will lead to the Yankees winning this game on they money line.
Play: Yankees -130
Oakland Athletics +122 at Boston Red Sox -133 Total: 9
Chris Bassitt has become quite the strikeout pitcher for the Oakland Athletics and the only time he has had issues this season in terms of wins is when the the A’s haven’t given him run support. For Nathan Eovaldi, he is coming off his worst start of the season and the A’s are going to take advantage.
Play: A’s ML
Baltimore Orioles +130 at New York Mets -140 Total:7
John Means is coming off a no hit game in his last game and I expect he is going to lock down again in this game. Marcus Stroman comes into this game with a 3-3 record and an ERA of 2.12. The Mets offense has been a big issue all season.I expect both teams are going to struggle to score and that will lead to this game staying well under the total.
Toronto Blue Jays at Atlanta Braves
Robbie Ray is on the mound for the Blue Jays and in 28.2 innings so far this year giving up 10 runs. Ray doesn’t go late in games, but he is consistent and he will have no issues getting the job done in this game. Back the Blue Jays on the money line.
Play: Blue Jays ML
St, Louis Cardinals +108 at Milwaukee Brewers -136 Total: 7,5
Over the last ten games, the St. Louis Cardinals have an 8-2 record and in this game they send Kwang-hyun Kim to the mound who doesn’t go deep in games,but each of the las three starts he has given up only one run. Kim will lockdown the Brewers in this game and that will lead to the victory.
Play: Cardinals ML
Los Angeles Angels +127 at Houston Astros -140 Total: 8
Shohei Ohtani has been good at the plate and on the mound for the Angels but he hasn’t had a whole lot of work. For Lance McCullers each of his last three starts he has given up three runs or less, In this game look for pitchers to lock down and for the under to cash with ease.
Minnesota Twins +105 at Chicago White Sox -125 Total: 8,5
Kenta Maeda has had issues with the long ball this season and that is something the White Sox are going to take advantage of. For Dylan Cease he has been strong this season sitting with a 2-0 record and an ERA of 2.37. The Twins bats are cold still and the White Sox will win this game on the money line.
Play: White Sox ML
San Diego Padres at Colorado Rockies
The Rockies are really struggling as of late and with the way the Padres offense can score, they should have no issues running up the score at Coors Field. Look for the Padres to make this one ugly and win this game on the run line.
Play: Padres -1.5
Miami Marlins -103 at Arizona Diamondbacks -107 Total: 8
Madison Bumgarner looks to b the pitcher of old with the way he has played his last few starts. Over Bumgarner’s last three starts he has gone 19 innings total giving up only two runs total. He didn’t get a whole lot of run support in the last game, but I think that will change in this game. Back the Diamondbacks on the money line.
Play: Diamondbacks ML
Seattle Mariners +220 at Los Angeles Dodgers -250 Total: 7.5
This game is all about getting the value with the Mariners. Yusei Kikuchi has been a bit inconsistent this year but two starts ago against the Astros he went seven innings giving up only one hit and zero runs. He is going to have to be lights out to get the job done but I think he can do it. Back the Mariners at the underdog value.
Play: Mariners ML +220
