    This is an interesting match up but I like the more well rounded team in the Padres here to win another game. Bundy is part of an Orioles pitching staff that has been torched for a league-leading 156 long balls entering Tuesday. And the Padres line up took advantage of that. I will look for them to do the same against Dylan Bundy. Bundy has proven time and time again that he can get blown up in a hurry and I dont see why he wouldnt here. If he doesnt give up runs the bullpen will and for that I am taking the Padres.

    I will look for Jack Flaherty to right the ship and get the Cardinals a much needed win. The A's are really hurting in the pitching department with the loss of their Allstar Closer and Ace Pitcher. The Cardinals just lost their Closer but have plenty of pieces to fill in that spot. Bassitt was solid in his last start but that was against the dreadful Orioles. This Cards line up is a lot more potent and I will look for them to put up a couple crocked numbers.

    My Pick: St. Louis -149 60%

    As hard as it is to go against Snellzilla, that is what I am going to do here. Gibson had success against the Rays earlier when he didnt allow a single earned run, while only walking one batter and striking out three in five innings. The Rays will need more than a day off to cure the offensive struggles theyve had. On the other hand the Twins remain one of the best hitting teams in baseball with a slash line of .271/.338/.502. They are also averaging more home runs per game (1.91) than any other team in the league, which only adds to the potential stress they can put on opposing defenses. Gimmie the Twins here at home

    My Pick: Minnesota -104 60%

    I like the Dodgers here to bounce back and get a win. The Dodgers have had a ton of success against Ray this season, and they rank third in runs scored against left-handed pitchers coming into this game. L.A. has won four of the last five meetings in this series and theyve been tough to beat over the past month. While this is considered a bullpen game for them, L.A. is still going to have two formidable starting-caliber pitchers out there handling the early innings. I dont think this Dbacks team has enough to make it back to back wins against the Dominant Dodgers.

    My Pick: Los Angeles -112 60%

    Love the Braves and Fried here. The Braves are 4-1 in their last five meetings against the Cubs and Fried carved them up in a previous start in early April. Atlanta is on fire at the plate right now and no matter how talented Alzolay is, they will be facing a rookie making his first career MLB start. Atlanta is 14-5 in the month of June and the line is already moving in their direction. The Braves are too good and have too many favorable match ups here. Take the Braves at almost even odds

    My Pick: Atlanta -105 60%

    I cant fathom why Lucas Giolito is at +150 odds. He has been one of the best pitchers in all of baseball and is going up against a Red Sox team that looked outmatched by the Blue Jays at home in their last series. They got lucky they didnt get swept. While Erod has been pretty decent for the Sox, he does give up a lot of runs. This isnt good when going against one of the better ERA pitchers in baseball. Take the CWS before the line moves

    My Pick: Chicago +157 60%

    No way I am trusting the Phillies in this spot. Matz hasnt been his best against the Phillies especially on the road but I think he will limit the struggling Phillies and keep them in this game. I will also look for Pete Alonso to keep torching the ball. The Mets are the more complete team at the moment and are getting healthier as the summer continues. Take Matz and the Mets here

    My Pick: New York +112 60%

    Love Love Love the Cards to get the Series win here on Sunday Night Baseball. The Angels came into this series red-hot, but the Cardinals have cooled them off in a short period of time. The Cards have been playing a lot better as of late and they have won 12 of Mikolas last 16 home starts. Miles Mikolas is 4-3 with a 2.55 ERA here at home, while Tyler Skaggs has gone 4-4 with a 5.27 ERA on the road. The Cards are the better team here and they have gone 24-15 at home, while the Angels are just 19-22 on the road. We also note that LA is 3-13 in their last 16 games after losing the first 2 games of a series. I will look for the Cards to sweep the Angels out of St. Louis

    My Pick: St. Louis -133 60%

    Love Verlander to show why he is so respected around the league and give his team a good outing when they need ti the most. Houston has struggled as of late in a big way losing 7 in a row. This team is too good to keep letting that happen and Verlander is a Veteran that can turn things around. This Yankees line up is dangerous and can score runs in bunches but I like Verlander to limit those chances. Hes struck out 32.5 percent of the batters hes faced in 2019, while walking just 4.9 percent and holding hitters to a outstanding .156 batting average against. Hes been even more stingy with runners in scoring position, stranding a healthy 92.9 percent of baserunners in 2019. The Astros have a lot of pride and they use that to salvage this series and get their feet back under them

    My Pick: Houston -118 60%

    I like Pittsburgh at plus odds to complete the sweep at home. They seem to have found a spark in some of their youngs guys that got brought up. I like how their line up is looking top to bottom and I think they will put up runs against Lucchesi who struggles on the road. The Padres are also 0-5 in their last 5 games against the Pirates and I think that trend continues Sunday.

    My Pick: Pittsburgh +124 60%

    The Indians are starting to get hot. They could make a run late this season when they start to get some arms back. They will definitely be buyers and not sellers come trade deadline. Bieber has been a bright spot for this team and I think he will continue to shine in this one.

    My Pick: Cleveland -120 60%

    Like the Nats here as well to complete the sweep. The Phillies are just a different team on the road and cant seem to pitch very well. I dont think Fedde will shut them out but I think he can limit what the Phillies offense can do that is already banged up.

    My Pick: Washington -109 60%

    I like the value here with the Rockies. Charlie Blackmon is absolutely on fire at the top of the order and no one has been able to get him as of late. Blackmon has 18 hits in his last five games which is pretty incredible. The Rockies feast on left-handed pitching and they have pushed across 10 runs on 14 hits in 10.1 innings against D-Backs lefty starter Robbie Ray this season. The Rockies rank third in the NL with an .823 OPS against left-handers this season, and they lead the Majors in runs scored. Plus the Rockies have won 6 straight against the Dbacks and I will look for that to continue here.

    My Pick: Colorado +160 60%

    I like the Twins at home here. After the grueling 17 innings both teams played last night, their depth will be tested. Both teams have plenty of power in their lineup and their offensive production has kept them in games. It was surprising to see Minnesota blanked in the opening game of the set but given Rodriguezs struggles in his outings against the Twins, you have to like the home teams chances. I believe that Minnesota wins the finale here with a complete team victory

    Love the Bucs here. Zimmermann is fresh off the injured list and still doesnt have a win on the year. On top of that his offense consistenley finds ways to score just enough runs to lose. Williams tossed 7.0 innings of one-run ball at St. Louis in his previous outing to halt a six-start winless drought, which included 6.0 innings of two-run ball in a no-decision at Detroit on April 17. Pittsburgh shortstop Kevin Newman has hit safely in 10 straight games. Detroit is 19-40 in its last 59 against right-handed starters, 4-12 in its last 16 against losing opponents, and 1-4 in its last five at Pittsburgh. The Pirates are 5-0 in Williams last five starts against losing opponents and 4-0 in the last four meetings between the two teams. Gimme teh Pirates here
