Los Angeles Angels +135 at Toronto Blue Jays -155 Total: 7.5 (Game 1)
Chris Rodriguez has been good this season in limited action, and I expect the Toronto Blue Jays are going to struggle to score in this game. Look for the Angles to pull off the upset, and get the doubleheader started right.
Play: Angels ML +135
St. Louis Cardinals -127 at Pittsburgh Pirates +117 Total: 9
The St Louis Cardinals have struggled coming into this game and now they are sending J.A. Happ to the mound who has been awful this season. Happ was a little better in his last start giving up two runs in his five innings, Steven Brault has only had one start this season going four innings and giving up only one run. Look for the Pirates to get the job done on the money line.
Play: Pirates ML +117
Detroit Tigers -107 at Baltimore Orioles -101 Total: 10.5
The Detroit Tigers are going to have no issues getting the job done in this game. Keegan Akin looked good in his last start going three innings giving up zero runs, Even though he is coming off a strong start, I don’t think he is going to be good in this game. Look for the Tigers to run up the score, and they will win this game on the run line.
Play: Tigers -1.5
Los Angeles Dodgers -157 at Philadelphia Phillies +144 Total: 8.5
Max Scherzer is coming off a strong start against the Houston Astros where he went seven innings giving up five hits and two runs. Aaron Nola hasn’t been strong and the Dodgers offense will take advantage. Look for the Dodgers to run up they will win this game on the run line.
Play: Dodgers- 1.5
Tampa Bay Rays +114 at Boston Red Sox -124 Total: 9.5
There is going to be no shortage of scoring in this game. Eduardo Rodriguez is on the mound for the Red Sox and he hasn’t been good this season. Look for this to be the first to seven type of game, and for the over to cash.
Washington Nationals +175 at New York Mets -210
Laying -210 with the Mets with the way they have played as of late? There is no chance that is a solid bet. Paolo Espino is coming off a bad start in his last game but the previous two starts were good, and he will lock down in this game. Back the Nationals to pull the upset.
Play: Nationals ML
Oakland Athletics -154 at Cleveland Indians +144 Total: 9.5
The Oakland Athletics are going to have no issues scoring runs in this game. Triston McKenzie comes into this game with a 1-5record and an ERA of 5.89. Look for the A’s to find that offensive success early, and they will win this game on the run line.
Play: A’s -1,5
Cincinnati Reds -120 at Atlanta Braves +100 Total: 9.5
The difference between the two pitchers on the mound is one of these players gets plenty of run support, and one doesn’t. Sonny Gray has had issues with run support all season, and it’s not going to change in this game. Look for the Braves to get the job done on the money line.
Play: Braves ML +100
Milwaukee Brewers at Chicago Cubs
The Cubs have not had many bright spots this season, but maybe Justin Steele could prove to be one of them. Steele has been tearing up the minors and as a reliever earlier in the season he has been good. I expect Steele will be good in this start. The Cubs are also going to struggle to score, and the under will cash.
Colorado Rockies at Houston Astros
The Colorado Rockies have been awful on the road this season, but this is a game where they can pull off the upset. Jake Odorizzi hasn’t been perfect this season, and he is going to be outdueled in this game by Jon Gray. The Astros had issues over the weekend against the Twins, and it won’t improve in this game.
Play: Rockies ML
Chicago White Sox -144 at Minnesota Twins +123 Total: 10.5
Griffin Jax has been impressive for the Minnesota Twins, and might be earning himself a spot in the rotation. The Twins might have struggled on Monday, but it’s not going to continue in this game. Back the Twins on the money line.
Play: Twins ML
New York Yankees -161 at Kansas City Royals +140 Total: 10.5
Nestor Cortes has proven he belongs in the Yankees rotation, and he is going to lock down the Royals offense. In two of the three games over the weekend against the St. Louis Cardinals, the Royals only scored two runs. The Yankees are going to lock down the offense and get the job done. The under is also a strong play.
Play: Yankees ML / Under
Arizona Diamondbacks at San Francisco Giants
Alex Wood hasn’t been as dominant as of late, and the D-Backs should find success in this game. Wood’s last start came against the Arizona Diamondbacks he went four innings giving up seven hits and fours. The Giants should also find success Zac Gallen and the over is going to cash.
Toronto Blue Jays -140 at Los Angeles Angels +129 Total: 7.5 Game 2
I don’t love betting on Game 2's doubleheader, but I think the underdog is worth a shot in this game. Jose Suarez gets the start for the Angels and he is going to pull off the upset in this game.
Play: Angels ML +129
Texas Rangers +170 at Seattle Mariners -189 Total: 8
I don’t love laying the -189 with the Mariners but I don’t see another way to bet this game. Kolby Allard gets the start for the Rangers and he has been awful this year sitting with an ERA of 5.07. Back the Mariners to get the job done on the money line.
Play: Mariners ML
Miami Marlins at Seattle Mariners
There hasn’t been a starting pitcher announced for the Marlins for this game.
