  • if you were going to make a killing in this series, it happened last night. Great Parlay play here tonight with Houston on the run line. Astros are 5-0 in their last five in game four of a series and 22-4 in Coles last 26 home starts. Houston is 43-16 in Coles last 59 starts and 7-2 in his last nine versus the AL Central. The Tigers are 6-23 in their last 29 in game four of a series and 2-10 in their last 12 Thursday games. Detroit is 1-5 in Zimmermans last six starts with four days rest and 2-5 in his last seven road starts. Parlay this one with the Nationals or Dodgers.

    My Pick: Houston -485

  • Play the Dodgers on the -1.5 RL. Waguespack has some good stuff but he doesn't have the best control and the Dodgers are ranked #1 in the league in plate disciple. The Jays just got blanked by Kikuchi over the weekend when he pitched a Complete Game Shutout where he dominated with 14 Ks. Well fellow Japanese SP Kenta Maeda throws similar stuff so I expect the Jays bats won't be able to handle him much. Dodgers take it easily and likely get out ahead early in this one.

    My Pick: Los Angeles -260

  • Juardo has a 8.53 ERA in August while Detwiler is at 5.79. Neither guy has great stuff and both lineups are capable of mashing the ball. THe Rangers have a career .849 OPS against Detwiler. Play the OVER 10.5. I like Abreau if you're looking for some prop bets - he's 3/5 with a double in time at the plate against Jurado.

    My Pick: Over 10.5

  • Love the OVER 9.5 runs here tonight in Oakland. The A's are winners of 6 of their last 8. They've won six straight games when scoring four or more runs. Tanaka may be the best SP in the Yankees rotation but he is capable of letting you down as an Under Bet any given inning. THIS IS A LOCK, Folks. Tanner Roark has looked good in August posting a 2.55 ERA - yes I know. But the Yankees Bats are hungry and want to avoid a sweep - they'll come out focused and put up some runs. As for the A's who are red hot - I don't see Tanaka shutting them down but for so long.

    My Pick: New York -110 & Over 9.5

  • Double header at home with Heaney pitching for the Angels. He hasn't won back to back games since 2015. I like that the Rangers are tossing a young arm out there tonight and the fact that they are underdogs at home once again (Angels are good but nothing to write home about - outside of Trout).

    My Pick: Texas +118

  • Cards are on a roll. Cubs are 5-15 SU on the road in the division this season. Hendricks doesn't get a lot of run support. I'm taking the hot hand in the Cards on the ML.

    My Pick: St. Louis -105

  • Ryu doesn't do great in Colorado but he's great during day games giving up just 2 ERs in 5 day starts. Marquez is not fit for Coors with a +7.00 ERA this season. Take the Dodgers.

  • Not great value at -141 but it's a good lock bet taking the Twins. Gioloto's ERA is 2.26 runs higher in night games and Twins bats are back to what they do best - mashing taters, baby! Minnesota is 9-2 in Berrios career starts against the Chi Sox and this is the number I really like - The Twins rank 5th in OPS vs Righties in the Month of July while the White Sox rank 29th in the same cateogry/timeframe.

    My Pick: Minnesota -141

  • I like the Tribe on the RL at -1.5 (-115). Indians have won 7 of Bauer's last 8 starts. He shut them out (no hits allowed) in 7 Innings pitched earlier this year against the Jays. Sanchez has been awful, just awful with 10 consecutive L's. Tribe have won a remarkable 47 of 58 wins by 2+ and the Jays have lost 80% of their losses by 2+!

    My Pick: Cleveland -172

  • Homer Bailey on the mound and the way the A's are swinging the bat, I think Vegas has that number a little low on the Total. I like the value at Over on the 9 runs.

    My Pick: Over 9

  • Gotta take Yankees at that price. They've lost 2 times in a row once in the last 6 weeks and are arguably the best team in MLB. They score the most runs on the road and Perez has given up 4 or more ER's in his last 4 of his last 6 starts. Yankess have a .960 career OPS vs him as well. Yankees have been dominating the Twins winning 11 of 14. At -118, I'll take it. Twins are trending down so if that can pull it off, it would be a big win.

    My Pick: New York -118

  • Not great value but Dodgers are a good play, maybe on a parlay or the run line. They have rocked Eflin in the minimal amount of ABs they've had against him. In 36 ab's they have 12 hits, 5 HRs and are slugging .806 against him. Meanwhile Kershaw has held Phillies batters to a .206 career batting average and after going 11-1 in his starts, the Dodgers have taken the L in his last 3. He pitched great against the Padres in his last start and I expect to see more of that tonight and the Dodgers to get back to winning ways behind their ace and leader. Leaning Over on the runs as it is 5-3-2 in the last 10 between these teams and I don't like who Philly has on the mound but they're a good home team so if they are to stay in it, they'll need to figure out Kershaw early and often.

    My Pick: Los Angeles -170 & Over 9.5

  • Houser is a much better arm out of the pen. He is 0-2 with a 9.00 ERA in his three starts. He does have three scoreless innings, allowing just one hit and striking out five in two relief appearances earlier this season against the Reds. The Reds however are just 4-11 in Mahles starts and are 3-6 against the Brew Crew this season. They're also 10-3 in their last 13 in Cincinnati. I like the value on the Moneyline with the Brewers and trust the bullpen is rested enough to get the W. $$$$

    My Pick: Milwaukee -105
