Boston Red Sox +141 at Philadelphia Phillies -170 Total: 8

The Boston Red Sox shouldn’t be the underdog on Friday, and there is a ton of value with them in this game. Aaron Nola hasn’ been as strong as of late,and over his last five starts he has an ERA that is near five. The Red Sox’s offense is strong, and they are going to find success in this game. Back the Red Sox on the money line.

Play: Red Sox ML +141

Baltimore Orioles at Washington Nationals

The Orioles gave up 10 runs to the Rays on Thursday, and they are going to struggle to get the job done with their pitching. Jorge Lopez sits with a 6.35 ERA this season and that is going to lead to the Nationals offense running up the score. Back the Nationals on the money line. 

Play: Nationals ML

Minnesota Twins at Cleveland Indians

The Minnesota Twins are so banged up right now, and it doesn’t matter who is on the mound for this game, they are going to be lit up. Triston McKenzie also hasn’t been strong for the Indians and there is going to be plenty of scoring by the Twins in this game. Back the over to cash with ease in this game.

Play: Over

Chicago White Sox -105 at New York Yankees -105 Total: 8.5

The Yankees have been winning games, but they still haven’t been scoring a whole lot of runs. Each of the last two games the Yankees beat the Rangers 2-0 but in this game the lack of scoring by the Yankees is going to let them down. Carlos Rodon will get the start for the White Sox and he starts with a 1.47 ERA. The White Sox will score enough runs to win this game. Back the White Sox ML

Play: White Sox ML

New York Mets at Miami Marlins

The Marlins got good pitching in the last game and that led to a 3-1 victory. The Mets offense has been an issue and that is going to lead to the home team getting the job done in this one. Back the Marlins on the money line. 

Play: Marlins ML

Milwaukee Brewers -107 at Cincinnati Reds -101 Total: 9

The Reds bullpen has been an issue this year and now they send out Jeff Hoffman who has had issues going more than four innings as of late. The Brewers offense hasn’t been as strong as of late but they are going to find enough offensive success to get the job done. 

Play: Brewers ML

Pittsburgh Pirates +162 at Atlanta Braves -192 Total: 8 

Both of these teams are 4-6 in their last ten games but I don’t feel laying this type of number with the Braves is a smart move. Tyler Anderson is coming off a bad start, but he will bounce back in a big way in this game. Back the Pirates on the money line.

Play: Pirates ML 

Tampa Bay Rays at Toronto Blue Jays 

Tyler Glasnow is an elite offensive start and he is going to shut down the Blue Jays offense in this game. Glasnow comes into this game with a 4-2 record overall and coming into this game he sits with a 2.25 ERA . Look for the Rays to win this game on the run line. 

Play; Rays -1.5

Houston Astros -115 at Texas Rangers +105 

The Texas Rangers offense is having some major issues and that is going to hurt their chances to come away with the victory. The Astros offense might not be elite, but they are going to do enough to get the job done. Back the Astros to get the job done on the money line.

Play: Astros ML

Detroit Tigers +125 at Kansas City Royals -155 Total: 8.5

These two offenses aren’t exactly elite, but they are both going to find success against two terrible starting pitchers. Jose Urena sits with an ERA over four and he is coming back from injury. For the Royals they have Mike Minor who currently sits with an ERA over 5.00. Back the over.

Play: Over

Chicago Cubs -115 at St. Louis Cardinals -105 Total: 8

Kyle Hendricks finally got back on the right track in their last game, but I think he goes back to his terrible ways in the last game .Hendricks currently sits with a 5.27 ERA and the Cardinals are going to run up the score in this game. Back the Cardinals ML

Play: Cardinals ML

Arizona Diamondbacks at Colorado Rockies

This game is going to go over the total for a few reasons, this game is being played at Coors Field, and German Marquez is getting the start for the Rockies. Over his last three starts he has given up 14 runs. The ROckies will also score their share of runs and this game is going to go over the total. Back the over.

Play: Over

Los Angeles Dodgers -145 at San Francisco Giants +135 Total: 6.5. 

The Giants offense has been having a lot of success as of late, but now they have to face the Dodgers pitching staff led by Trevor Bauer in this game. Bauer has pitched 57.1 innings so far this year giving up only 15 runs total. Look for the Dodgers offense to be strong enough and the Dodgers will win this game on the run line. 

Play: Dodgers -1.5

Oakland Athletics -119 at Los Angeles Angels +110 Total 9 

The Athletics on the road are going to get the job done. The A’s have struggled as of late, but their offense is going to be strong in this game. The Angel’s bullpen has been an issue this season and they are going ot have to lean on them heavily in this game with Jose Quintana on the mound. Back the A’s ML

Play: A’s ML

Seattle Mariners at San Diego Padres 

Chris Paddack is playing well coming into this game giving up only one run over his last two starts. The Mariners are coming off a game against the Tigers where they only scored two runs. Look for the Mariners lack of scoring to hurt them in this game and the Padres will win this game on the run line. 

Play: Padres -1.5
