Tampa Bay Rays New York Yankees Total: 9

Over the past two weeks, the Yankees lead the majors with a .840 OPS and rank second with 25 home runs. Rays’ rookie Shane Baz has looked great in two starts since being called up, but his one issue has been the longball. Give me the Yankees to get it done at home.

Pick: New York Yankees

Baltimore Orioles +210 Toronto Blue Jays -240 Total: 8.5

Despite being divisional foes, this will be the first time John Means has faced the Blue Jays this season. He has a 2.27 ERA and .193 OBA on the road this season and will face a Toronto lineup that is hitting just .227 over the past two weeks. Give me the Orioles on the road.

Pick: Baltimore Orioles +210

Boston Red Sox Washington Nationals Total:

Boston has yet to announce a starter for this one, but their bullpen has been solid with a 3.99 ERA this season. The Nationals’ Josiah Gray has allowed multiple runs in each of his last 9 starts. Look for the Red Sox to cruise to an easy win here.

Pick: Boston Red Sox

San Diego Padres San Francisco Giants Total:

The Padres’ Joe Musgrove has fallen off of late, allowing multiple runs in each of his past five starts including eight runs over 11.2 innings against these Giants. The Giants have been on a tear as they look to outpace the Dodgers for the division crown and should find a way to scratch out another win here.

Pick: San Francisco Giants

Philadelphia Phillies Miami Marlins Total:

The Marlins Jesus Luzardo has not had a month with an ERA under 5 this season and has a 6.21 ERA at home. Miami also ranks last with a .207 average over the past two weeks.  Fade the Marlins.

Pick: Philadelphia Phillies

Cincinnati Reds -180 Pittsburgh Pirates +165 Total: 8.5

The Reds’ Tyler Mahle is 8-2 with a 1.85 ERA on the road and has allowed just three earned runs in his past 10.1 innings against the Pirates. Pittsburgh is hitting just .224 as a team over the past two weeks. Give me the Reds.

Pick: Cincinnati Reds -180

Cleveland Indians -140 Texas Rangers +130 Total: 8.5

Both teams rank in the top ten in average over the past week. With Cleveland’s Tristan McKenzie and the Rangers’ Jordan Lyles both struggling of late, look for this one to go over.

Pick: Over

Detroit Tigers +230 Chicago White Sox -260 Total: 8.5

The White Sox have not lost in Lucas Giolito’s past four starts and he has allowed just 6 runs across 19.1 innings. The offense has also been playing well, ranking 6th in average over the past 30 days. Give me the Sox at home.

Pick: Chicago White Sox -260

Minnesota Twins Kansas City Royals Total:

The Twins Griffin Jax has allowed 13 hits and 10 earned runs in 11 innings against the Royals this season. Meanwhile, the Royals rank fifth in hitting over the past 30 days. Minnesota is hitting just .235 over the same stretch. Give me K.C.

Pick: Kansas City Royals

Oakland Athletics +143 Houston Astros -153 Total: 9

These are two teams that are struggling from the plate, ranking in the bottom six teams in hitting over the past two weeks. Paul Blackburn looked sharp in his lone start against the Astros this season, while the Astros have a 3.09 staff ERA over the past week. Fade the total.

Pick: Under 9

Chicago Cubs +162 St. Louis Cardinals -177 Total: 9

The Cubs lead the league with a .312 average over the last seven days. Expected starter Adrian Simpson limited this Cardinals offense to two runs over six innings in his previous start. Give me the Cubs on the road.

Pick: Chicago Cubs +162

New York Mets Atlanta Braves Total:

The Mets’ Trevor Williams has a 1.5 WHIP against the Braves this season and they have been swinging the bats well of late. They are averaging 5.4 runs per game with 17 home runs over the past two weeks. Give me Atlanta at home.

Pick: Atlanta Braves

Colorado Rockies +115 Arizona Diamondbacks -125 Total: 8.5

The Diamondbacks are 5-2 at home against Colorado this season. Expected starter Zach Gallen has limited this Rockies lineup to nine hits over 10 innings with 16 strikeouts. Give me Arizona at home.

Pick: Arizona Diamondbacks -125

Los Angeles Angels +157 Seattle Mariners -172 Total: 8

Injuries have plagued the Angels all season, and they will be outmatched in this one. The Mariners are on a nice run as they try to clinch a wild card birth and will have the edge on the mound here. Chris Flexen has limited this Angels lineup to four runs and 13 hits over 18 innings this season. Back the home team.

Pick: Seattle Mariners -172

Milwaukee Brewers Los Angeles Dodgers Total: 7

Corbin Burnes is 7-0 with a 1.64 ERA on the road this season. This will be the first time he has faced this Dodgers lineup this season, so give the edge to the pitcher. The Dodgers’ Julio Urias dominated the Brewers in his lone start against them this season. Fade the total here.

Pick: Under 7
